New Year's resolution: Become a 'Militia of One'
http://www.examiner.com/gun-rights-in-s ... tia-of-one# Attend an Appleseed training event, in order to hone one's proficiency in rifle marksmanship, and learn something of the "milita mindset"
# Get formal training in firearms use, whether it be basic firearms safety, if you're a beginner, an armed self-defense course, etc.
# Other kinds of training can be just as important as firearms training--basic first aid being a good example
# Get in shape--the vast majority of us will never be Navy SEAL material, but most of us can become more fit than we are right now, even if it's no more than eating a little smarter, taking regular walks, etc.
# Lay in supplies of storable food, potable water, fuel, etc.--you don't necessarily have to build a "bunker," with enough supplies to keep you alive for months, but the ability to be self-sufficient for just a few days can be a lifesaver in the aftermath of hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes, civil disturbance, terrorism
Alright guys, my New Year's Resolution is to get into shape, and of course, continue training harder and doing more.
I've just realized that 2011 is the year that I need to get over my painful back problem, quite being a , and just man-up, quite whining about it, and just say, Mind over Matter, Pain is just Weakness Leaving the Body. Its going to hurt a lot, but darnit, I'm just going to man up and deal with it, hopefully it won't wind me up with more expensive hospital ER visits, but I'm just done doing what my doctors say, because what they tell me is not helping me out any. Especially, in a bad situation.
I've already gone without any carbs besides a beer since New Years Day! :righton:
I've also, done some walking, and I've also done a lot of organizing of things in my home, and done a crap load of firearm training.
Tomorrow it is .308 long distance shooting, and some M4/pistol training tomorrow. Maybe even some .22 just for fun. I'm practicing shooting on the run, shooting while moving to cover, and of course transitions and trigger control. Its a load of fun! :righton:
