Super Marksmanship Evaluation

So, your author can shoot the Marksmanship Evaluation fairly well. But, in the spirit of pushing limits and seeing how accurate I actually am, I devised a plan.

I set the 25 m US Army zero targets up at 100 meters. Simple math tells us that these targets appeared to be the same scale as a 1200 m target.

I fired a group with my 4-14x Primary Arms scope, took it off, fired another group with my ACOG, took it off and fired a final group with the Primary Arms scope again. Also being tested was the LaRue mounts' abilities to return to zero.




9 for 9.

Marksmanship Evaluation

It was time to practice the Marksmanship Evaluation.

Two US Army zero targets are placed at 25 m.
5 rounds are fired at each target.
There is a 90 second time limit.
Shots in the black score 4 points.
Shots in the circle score 5 points.

If more than 5 shots find their way onto a target, the lowest 5 scores are used.
0 - 28 points: does not qualify.
29 - 38 points: Marksman
39 - 44 points: Sharpshooter
45 - 50 points: Expert Rifleman

I used three different types of ammo. Here are the results -




The results speak for themselves.
Take the evaluation. Tell me how you did. I'll post your picture!

How To Load

How you load your ammo when performing a precision evaluation is important. You do not wish to simply load up a magazine and blast 10 rounds down range. That will heat the barrel and yield inaccurate results.

A common method is to single load rounds and allow the barrel to cool for 60 seconds between shots. This is the method that the author uses. But, during a recent range trip, the author witnessed an individual doing this by placing the cartridge on top of the magazine. This can lead to the bullet itself becoming disfigured upon entry into the chamber.

Standard practice is to load the cartridge into the magazine, and put the magazine into the rifle as the barrel cools. But how much does attention to this one detail matter?

The author set out to discover the answer to this question. Using known ammo, a 10 round group was fired from 100 yards. New cartridges were placed on top of the magazine, instead of loaded into the magazine.  The bolt was sent home each time. Ammo used was Federal Gold Medal Premium, and Fiocchi Exacta. Both loads utilize the Sierra Match King 77 grain projectile. Both loads are capable of 1 MOA groups in the author's SPR.


As you can see, the results were 2 MOA groups by both loads.

A third group was fired, using Hornady Black 75 grain ammo. This load is accurate, but not as much so as the other two. It typically averages a 2 MOA group out of the author's SPR, and it did again this day. This group was fired by single loading the cartridges into the magazine as per standard protocol. 

Attention to detail matters.

POI Shift Evaluation

How does different ammo affect your point of impact (POI)?

Aiming at the dead center of the target from 50 yards, a 5 shot group was fired, using four common ammo types. Hornady 75 grain Black, Hornady 55 gr FMJ, Federal American Eagle 55 gr Black Box, and Federal American Eagle 55 gr Green Box were fired, in that sequence.

As you can see, the 55 grain ammo had a slight downward shift in POI. Otherwise, it was more than accurate enough.

Libtard Lunacy

Found on social media -

Libtard: that poster makes literally no sense. What is hateful about teaching men not to rape?

Shiv: what is hateful about teaching moslems not to blow things up? Or teaching blacks not to steal?

Libtard: you're implying that all Muslims blow things up, or that all blacks steal things, which is 100% bs, in case you didn't know. 



Led her right into a trap. The trap of invalidating one's own point.

Cruz Girl For Trump

A person who felt Trump was her "lesser of two evils choice" in November weighs in:

I voted Ted Cruz in the primary. I said on social media that I didn't like the way that Trump conducted himself. Since then, I've come to realize a few key things.

Trump was never treated fairly by the Republicans, the Democrwts, or the Press. But life is not fair and I think Trump gets that. He fights back. I like having someone in a position of power who isn't afraid of fighting back.

As conservative as Ted Cruz is, I don't think he would have moved as rapidly as Trump has. He wouldn't have pushed for a wall, lower taxes, travel bans, etc. I do think Trump's conservative pick for the Supreme Court is every bit as conservative as a Cruz appointee would have been. Good chance Gorsuch would have been Cruz' pick, too.

But, and this is a big but, I don't think Cruz would have fought as hard as Trump. We would be hearing very little from him at this point. He would have been rendered nearly useless by the constant attacks from the Left, and the media collusion.

I tend to agree with this reader.

Mount Review

Recently, I purchased a LaRue LT104 quick detach mount. The goal is to have my SPR outfitted with an ACOG for regular use, and a Primary Arms HUD DMR scope for overwatch duties. I run 75 grain Hornady ammo for precosion, so the scope's BDC matches up well for such duties.

The LT104 mount was easy to install and rugged in build. The quick release levers are virtually identical in appearance and function to the quick release levers I have on my ACOG. With the mount installed, I headed to the Range to zero the scope and verify that the mount will return to zero after removal.

A silver sharpie was used to mark where the tabs should go on my rail, so that the scope was put back in the same spot each time. So how did the mount do?

Here is my first group of the evaluation. Prior to shooting this group, I had zeroed the scope, and removed it. I put the scope back on the rifle, and fired at this Army zeroing target from 100 yards. Yes - you read that correctly - I fired on a 25 m target at 100 m. The scaled target was to represent a 300 m target when used at 25 m. Since it was used at 100, the target appeared the same size as a 1200 yard target would appear.


All in the Black... pun intended (ammo was Hornady Black).



Next, I took off the scope for the 2nd time since zeroing, and put my ACOG on my rifle, Lucy.


I guess I only need 4 power to hit a target at 1200 yards.



Off came the ACOG, and on went the Primary Arms scope in the LaRue mount for a third time.


And again, all shots in the black.


Given that the Hornady ammo is between 1 and 2 MOA, I'd say that the rifle was zeroed, and it kept it's zero.




Lessons Learned
1. LaRue makes good stuff. Go get some!
2. Shooting at Army zero targets from 100 yards is hard.
3. The LaRue LT104 mount is truly return to zero... and not many are.

Nope and Nope

Vox posts that the Southern Baptists are contemplating making a mistake.  Key phrase:

The Alt-Right is not deceived. To the contrary, the Southern Baptists have embraced the wide and easy way in pursuit of the world's approval. It won't be long before they'll be featuring female pastors performing same-sex marriages before empty pews. Convergence always ends the same way.

In other news... it has begun.

#cuckservative or Progressive?

Lefty writes -

Something has happened during the last, say, 10 or 15 years that has caused the already unstable left to go full bore insane. As a friend of mine noted on Twitter just this morning, half of us loves the country, the other half hates it.

There is no use engaging liberals in a serious way. You will frustrate yourself. Facts and logic mean nothing to them. There really is an alternate state of reality occupied only by liberals.

“Progressives,” as they like to be called, are convinced that down is up and up is down, left is right and right is left, light is darkness and darkness is light, good is evil and evil is good. What do you do with that? There are no points of agreement. There is no ground upon which to compromise. There sphere they inhabit never intersects reality, not even on a single tangent.


Very accurate.

Also of note - if you insert the word #cuckservative for the word "Leftist" or "Progressive," then what would you have?

There is no use engaging #cuckservatives in a serious way. You will frustrate yourself. Facts and logic mean nothing to them. There really is an alternate state of reality occupied only by #cuckservatives .

#cuckservatives ... are convinced that down is up and up is down, left is right and right is left, light is darkness and darkness is light, good is evil and evil is good. What do you do with that? There are no points of agreement. There is no ground upon which to compromise. There sphere they inhabit never intersects reality, not even on a single tangent.



Hmmm... seems to work perfectly.

So, the question is, what's the difference again between Progressive and a #cuckservative ?
No, please, if you know the difference, please let me know. I cannot determine any difference at all.

BETA of the Year

Yesterday, James Comey testified. We now have a hands-down candidate for BETA of the Year.

Comey admitted to giving information to a friend with the express purpose of leaking that information. Very passive-aggressive move there.

Comey hid behind drapes from Donald Trump. Very BETA of him.

Comey admitted to being pressured by Loretta Lynch to change the wording of the Hillary investigation to "matter."

Comey took notes with Trump, but never with anyone else. Trying so hard to get info to use against Trump is sniping. Very BETA.

The only thing Comey didn't leak was that Trump was not under investigation.  Again, a BETA sniping move.

Fun vs. No Fun

Lefty writes that the NBA is boring.  He's right.

Back in the 1990's, my brother and I watched the NBA a lot.  By the late 90's, we could actually predict the series results - down to the number of games each team would win. 

In 1998, my brother and I predicted the playoff results - series by series - all the way through, including the champion Bulls team. We didn't miss anything.  Every series unfolded exactly as we had predicted on paper on the day before the playoffs began.

Is the NBA rigged? Well, I miss a prediction on at least one match on every WWE event. 

Besides,  the NHL is more fun.  #GoPreds

Lawnmower Philosophy

New section starting this week - Lawnmower Philosophy.  A good friend cuts lawns. As he puts it, ones mind can wander far & wide when you spend hours on a lawnmower.

He was raised in a Christian Church. As part of that denomination's doctrine, they feel that people who commit suicide go to Hell, regardless of salvation status. Going with that notion, if a drunk crashes his car and dies, then he, too would be eternally damned.

My friend reflects - so, if a fat person dies due to complications of being obese, does he go to Hell, as well? Gluttony is a sin. 


Poor doctrine from that denomination notwithstanding, what say you? Would that be the case?

Total Package

Seen on social media:

Current struggle: the guy you dated was quite douchey so you don't miss him but you do miss the things you did together and the connection you had over the little things in life. Why's it so hard to find someone who has the full package?

Naturally, this was written by a female.  There are many points that could be made from these two sentences, albeit one of them is a really bad run-on sentence  (with poor punctuation). However, three points seem to really stick out. 

1. Women are attracted to douchey guys.  And then they "wonder" why he won't be nice.  Here's a hint: if he acts nice, he will find himself in the friend zone.  And you, the girl, won't want to date him.

2. Men are no longer masculine.  Feminism and liberal ideology has made masculinity out to be "toxic." So the real complaint is why are so many women (and men, to some extent) training their sons to be BETA schlub "nice guys?" Why not raise your son to be the complete package?

3. What makes you, the girl, worth a man who has the total package? Women are no longer feminine these days.  So many are fat, bitchy, entitled, princess attitude, promiscuous, etc. A woman with the total package is what a man with the total package will select.

Good news for women - you ladies can control most of the factors that make you or break you when it comes to attractiveness to a man.  Fat, bitchy, entitled, princess attitude, and promiscuous are all decisions. You can decide to be something other than that unpleasantness.

My son - cool, he just shoved some doodle-britches out of the way.

Me - I'm sure that was a man of some importance.

Son - nope. Can't be. I've never seen him before.

Me - Did you see what Trump did when that NATO guy got in his way?

Wife - what did he do, just push him out of the way unceremoniously?

Me - yes. How did you know?

Wife - because that's what you or our son would do.

Finish Him!

Recently, a Republican Congressional candidate was accused of "body slamming" a #fakenews dolt. Audio can be found of it, but video is difficult to come by, so we do not know the reality of the situation.



I wonder if this was the body slam used?






Of course, had the Congressman-elect wanted to do real damage, he could have elected to perform a Rock Bottom:








And, of course, friend Lefty suggests use of the infamous Pile Driver:








Alternately, Lefty suggests: "I personally would have preferred a figure-4 leglock in order to watch said reporter writhe in agony & beg for mercy."






How about you?

Body Slam

Last week, Congressman-elect Greg Gianforte allegedly "body slammed" the Guardian’s Ben C. Jacobs. The witness, whose story seems to keep changing, indicated Gianforte grabbed Jacobs by the neck and slammed him.

If true, this means that Gianforte did not body slam the #fakenews dolt. It would be more correctly termed a choke slam.


Pictured here is Glenn Jacobs - "Kane" - performing a choke slam. For the record, Jacobs plans to run for mayor of Knoxville.

Low Energy

Jeb! Bush recently went on the record stating that he feels President Trump should stop tweeting.  Also, Bush indicated that he "told you so" that Trump would be a "chaos President."

Translation into normal English -
"Trump needs to do the things #cuckservatives do to guarantee losing but maintaining an arbitrary 'moral high ground'."

What the political establishment sees as chaos, I see as a businessman running at half-speed to make sure everything gets done correctly.  Imagine if Trump were running full speed? Also, the only chaos beyond this is that which is fraudulently inserted by the #fakenews... so why bother with even considering it?

Easy to Spot

Libtards are easy to spot, and easy to defeat with #AltRight tactics.

A friend posts on social media that she wishes Trump was "as eloquent a speaker as Rex Tillerson." Libtards pounce, trying to make fun of the God-Emperor. It's a softball pitch.




#AltRight ShitLord - [Mr. Miyagi meme that states] "You too much TV."

Libtard - It only takes watching for about 5 minutes to know that Trump has no public speaking ability.

ARSL- [George Carlin meme that states] "You know the #fakenews is fake... so why do you believe any of it???"

Libtard - Because when words are actually said, that is something that actually happened, and is not fake.

ARSL - Do I sense #Law3 projection? Did you like Obama, yet realized that he was a stuttering fool, so you project that onto Trump now?

Libtard - I don't even know how to answer that, so I am not going to.

Qual Time!

Your Militia / 3% / Oath Keeper / Patriot Group needs to know how to shoot straight.

Here's a good course of fire to help you gauge your skills:


Put up an Army 300m zero target.
2 targets per shooter.

90 second time limit.
Use your AR as you carry it.

You may use a bipod - if you always carry a bipod. If the bipod is in your rucksack, you must start the course of fire with the bipod detached and attach it first if you wish to use it. The rifle must be unloaded while you put the bipod on.

You may use your rucksack as a rest.
You may use your magazine as a rest.

If you use a loop sling or hasty sling, you must put it on during the 90 second shooting period with your rifle unloaded.

You may load a single mag with 10 rounds, or two mags with 5 rounds each.


Course of fire:
90 seconds.
5 shots on each target.


Scoring:
Shots inside the circle = 5 points
Shots in the black = 4 points.
Shots off target = 0 points.

A shot touching two or three scoring areas receives the higher (highest) score.

In the event that more than 5 shots are fired on a target for any reason, the lowest 5 shots on a target are the ones scored.


Qualification
29 - 37 points = Marksman
38 - 44 points = Sharpshooter
45 - 50 points = Expert Rifleman

Peaceful Solution

I would prefer a peaceful solution.  The more I see from the Left, the Establishment Republicans, the #fakenews , and the Deep State, the more I realize that an acceptable peaceful solution might not exist.

The only "peace" their side will accept is total subjugation... slavery.  Subjugation is not acceptable; and in the end, it's never peaceful.

I would prefer a peaceful solution,  but I am prepared for the other.   If there must be war, let it be in my time that my children may have peace.  

DM Extras

As DM for your fire team, you need to pack a few extra items, and make a few considerations for your combat and recon patrols. 

It is wise to select an assault pack like the one pictured. This pack has a groove between pouches.  A good DM will rest his rifle in this groove for added stability for long range shots.

Carry your rifle with precision ammo in the mag. This is assuming your load out contains entry ammo and precision ammo.  If possible,  all ammo should be of a precision variety, but that can be cost - prohibitive. Unless your patrol will almost immediately take you to an entry type situation, use the precision ammo mag... you may be called on to take a snap shot at a target of opportunity with narry a moment's notice!

While you will not be filling a true sniper role, you might be called on for overwatch duties or similar.  Carry some of the tools of the trade:
* hatchet / saw, or similar. 
* sniper veil.
* extra shemagh.
* shooting sock.
* bipod.
* binoculars or spotting scope.
* range finder.

It would be wise to carry the binoculars and range finder on your rig instead of your pack.  One never knows when you might need these in a hurry.

Minuteman Automatic Rifleman

Recently, the US Marine Corps made the decision to switch away from a belt fed automatic rifle and they adopted the M27. As usual, there will be a transition period.

Which brings up the point - what is a Patriot survivalist team to do about having an automatic rifleman? The automatic rifleman is the cornerstone around which the infantry fire squad is built. But automatic weapons are heavily regulated here in the Land of the Free (?).

Here is one potential solution...

The Rifle
Start with a regular heavy barrel AR build, but put a gas piston system on it.
Make sure it is free floated (mind the rail, some don't work with piston systems).
Install a double firing trigger - like the Fostech Echo trigger.
Make sure to top it off with an ACOG, Aimpoint, or similar for maximum effect.

The Loadout
The Minuteman Automatic Rifleman could carry 100 round drum mags for full effect.
At least 300 rounds, and preferably 500.

The Automatic Rifleman
The Minuteman Automatic Rifleman should be an expert rifleman on a semi auto. If he isn't, do you really want him laying down suppressive fire? He should train with his rifle system so as to be able to lay down accurate fire, even at an accelerated rate.

What say you?

The Left Hates Christians

From a friend via social media:

This afternoon I was going through photos and videos of the kids from 2003-04 and saw a political ad from George W Bush. Remember Bush ran on the Christian platform that John Kerry & the Democrats had an agenda to take Christian rights away. Now back then, I laughed at the very thought because I was a Democrat.

Well I'm not laughing today! Looking back from the 2008 election, wow is all I can say. I would have never believed all that has transpired and how America has welcomed and accepted  Satan with open arms. But, who would have known it would be Bush, you know the President who made up words, that warned us?

Prophetic? Or just common sense?

AHCA Quotes

Thursday, May 4, the US Congress voted to repeal and replace Obamacare. Almost on cue, the Dims started to call it Trumpcare, but that's not all. Here are some of their more outlandish statements and the truth in comparison.

Terrible! 24 million people would lose their health coverage to pay for a tax cut for millionaires and billionaires. #AHCA
Fact is, now more people will have the option to pay for their own health care coverage (or not) and far less coverage will be paid for at gunpoint by 3rd parties.

This isn’t football. It’s not about scoring points. #AHCA will devastate Americans’ healthcare. Families will go bankrupt. People will die.
That's the worst parts about the #AHCA. We're no longer immortal. We. Are. Going. To. Die.
- Lefty.

Since I've already quoted Lefty, here are a few more gems he had to say:

Real reason Democrats oppose AHCA is that with insurance companies bailing on ObamaCare, we were headed for single payer. GOP thwarted that.
- Lefty 

I didn't realize until today that if we just let Democrats run Congress, they can change the climate back & overcome death. Truly godlike.

What Are They Getting Paid For?

From a friend of the author:

Son (over age 18) was raised old-fashioned. Always be early to work. Always be the last to leave. Cut the chit-chat and work hard. Etc.
Son was at a manual labor job in a warehouse. He kept to himself more and focused on the tasks at hand as opposed to much idle chit-chat. Most of the other employees chatted so much, it got in the way of their production. The young man was evidently making them look bad.

90 day review time comes. Excellent marks except a "zero" in communication. He didn't chat enough, he was told. He made the others look bad, he was told. So he was let go. Despite being their #1 widget maker ever since that plant had opened.

And we wonder why American manufacturing isn't what it used to be.

Tax Relief

The list of tax burdens the REPEAL takes away...... 

-Abolishes the Obamacare Individual Mandate Tax which hits 8 million Americans each year.

-Abolishes the Employer Mandate Tax. Together with repeal of the Individual Mandate Tax repeal this is a $270 billion tax cut.

-Abolishes Obamacare’s Medicine Cabinet Tax which hits 20 million Americans with Health Savings Accounts and 30 million Americans with Flexible Spending Accounts. This is a $6 billion tax cut.

-Abolishes Obamacare’s Flexible Spending Account tax on 30 million Americans. This is a $20 billion tax cut.

-Abolishes Obamacare’s Chronic Care Tax on 10 million Americans with high out of pocket medical expenses. This is a $126 billion tax cut.

-Abolishes Obamacare’s HSA withdrawal tax. This is a $100 million tax cut.

-Abolishes Obamacare’s 10% excise tax on small businesses with indoor tanning services. This is a $600 million tax cut.

-(Abolishes the Obamacare health insurance tax. This is a $145 billion tax cut.)*.

-Abolishes the Obamacare 3.8% surtax on investment income. This is a $172 billion tax cut.

-Abolishes the Obamacare medical device tax. This is a $20 billion tax cut.

-Abolishes the Obamacare tax on prescription medicine. This is a $28 billion tax cut.

-Abolishes the tax on retiree prescription drug coverage. This is a $2 billion tax cut.

Over one year it's $100 billion, which
only represents roughly 2.5 percent of the entire federal government budget.

Also notice that insurance was being taxed. There are no taxes on insurance for the customer.

Plus the FLEX SPENDING accounts were never taxed before. That was the huge reason to enroll in that savings account in the first place; to not be taxed for healthcare or family care expenses.

Wing Chun in MMA

Q - Why don't you see many Wing Chun techniques or practitioners in MMA?

Several reasons, among them -

Defense
Wing Chun defense is predicated on blocks.  Blocks just don't work often enough because of the power and speed of a real opponent.  Footwork and distancing are far more effective at keeping a person safe.   Wing Chun, as a rule, does not teach much with regards to good footwork and distancing. 

Offense
Wing Chun offense is centered around straight blast punching and kicking. While these techniques can be quite practical, the combinations offered in WC are lacking overall.  Combine with seriously subpar footwork and distancing and it's a recipe for disaster.  
Also, in close fighting, straight punches are often rendered ineffective by the opponent's guard position.  Hooks and uppercuts reign supreme.  These are often glossed over or ignored completely in WC.

Silence What?




Of course the President does not wish to silence the press, but McMuffin knows this.

If, however, we are speaking of ABCNNBCBS, then to silence them is not at all a silencing of the press. These outlets are #fakenews - "entertainment" only.  They are not press outlets as they refuse to report facts.   To silence them would not be a violation of freedom of press.

100 Days

Trump in office 100 days.
What have we learned?
What have we been reminded of?

#fakenews is still fake.
They keep manufacturing scandal. Teflon Don keeps shedding it like so many raindrops off an umbrella.

Democrats are hypocrites.
The wall and Gorsuch are two items the Dims voted for within the past 12 years, yet voted against this time around.

Soros' influence is coming to an end.
If Trump is the billionaire Alpha Male, then Soros is the billionaire Gamma Male. His paid "protests" and civil unrest have accomplished little other than to strengthen the Trump base.

Fake polls are still fake.
Lefty states that polls are usually +20 points for the political left. Bill Mitchell will quote +7 to +8 points in favor of the political left. Both men are right often enough for a smart person to use them as a gauge. So when polls say Trump's approval rating is around 50%, you can bet it is closer to 57% - 70%. Truly unprecedented.

The Republicans are the enemy, too.
Everyone knew this. Trump simply has the balls to show it.

Trump plays chess.
Leftwing legacy media still doesn't even know what a checker is.

The courts are corrupt.
In other news, the sky is blue and grass is green.

Winning does not get old.
Never will.

He Was Abusive

This thought came to me as I overheard a woman speaking about why she is divorcing her husband.  She claims he was physically abusive.  This woman has severe physical handicaps. I see their family frequently,  and she's never had injuries. If he were ever abusive towards her, she would likely die from the injuries, she is so frail.

The husband is extremely caring and patient. And he puts up with too much of her shit... which is why she now despises him. 

But as I listened to her lie to other people - she won't claim these things around those of us who know better - it dawned on me...

If you are a woman who is divorcing her husband,  and you claim physical abuse, then is he (or did he) serve time in jail for it?
If not, then you are lying. 

People who assault other people go to jail.  It is just that simple.  If you haven't called the police,  then you will understand why any rational person will not believe your fantasy tales about physical harm. And you'll get mad because they call you on your bullshit.

False Advertising?

Seen in front of a church:

Plaque on the wall - "established 1867."
Sign out front - "come celebrate our 75th anniversary."

Folks, it's 2017.  Both of those cannot be true.

Ahead of Our Time

A year ago, this blog used the word deplorable before it became popular. 

Even #fakenews admits she popularized the word on September 9, 2016.

Granted, the usage was different.  But then, this author has little in common with Hillary.

Forced Exchange

Brainwashed Socialist Teacher - "I. Hate. Capitalism."

Alt-Right Shiv - "So, you prefer money, goods, and services be exchanged via force rather than via mutual consent?"




For the unenlightened,
Capitalism is the voluntary exchange of money, goods, and/or services.
Socialism (and it's variants) are the forced exchange of money  (redistribution). And what is exchanged for that money? Goods and services.

Gender Assumption

A frustrated Progressive cunt is disappointed in the location of the meeting for her group.
FPC - While it may not personally effect [sic] us (everyone here, I believe, identifies as a hetero cis. gender), [group name redacted] members should feel welcome and we can find a better choice. 
Alt-Right Shiv - It would seem you have assumed my gender?
Minds blown.

Quality Optics

Why buy quality optics?

They hold zero.
They are very sturdy.
And sometimes, they can even survive a house fire.

Female Weight Reconnaissance



It's a well known fact (see meme above) that there is not a woman who is not at least a "4" crazy.

A leading contributor to the mental / emotional problems of many women is their weight. In this age of ever-increasing obesity, it is important to understand that there is a greater likelihood these days of mental / emotional problems for women.

Certainly, there are women who are rather slim and fit, who also have mental / emotional issues. But what these women don't have, to a large degree, are health issues. So, frankly, it's a benefit because they only have the weight obsession and not other health issues.

It is the Recce Rifleman's observation that, by and large, fit women have fewer mental / emotional issues than do fat women. This is generally true for men, as well, if to a lesser degree.  

Furthermore, it is a biological fact that obesity dramatically lowers a woman's attractiveness. A woman's single most important raison d'etre is to bear children and propagate the species; and that is directly linked to her attractiveness. In an unsurprising twist of fate, obesity also interferes with a woman's ability to procreate.

So, women, getting your size under control will increase your health, your value, and decrease your mental / emotional issues.

"Healthy at any size," isn't.  

If you are female, and your weight begins with a "2" (or "3"), then that includes you.

Pros vs Amateurs

Amateurs practice until they get it right. 

Professionals practice until they cannot get it wrong.
