See how many mistakes you can find. These are among the ones I found:
1. Open carry (yes, open carry is a mistake)
2. Horrid holster
3. Holster misused (is OWB when "built for" IWB)
4. Has never had a class.
5. No retention - holster or belt.
6. Has never practiced a drawstroke.
7. Poor choice of pants for carry.
8. (Not pictured) wearing a mask.
9. (Presumed) No medical training.
10. (Presumed) No medical equipment.
As an observation, I have seen much more open carry since the Constitutional Carry law went into effect on July 1st. Still about the same amount of concealed carry. Yes, I see you concealed carrying... and no, you didn't print that bad.
The "blood in the streets" we were warned about from the Left has not happened. No word on violent crime rates, yet.
Yahoos from the "Pro-2A" movement will not relent that we do not have "true" Constitutional Carry in Tennessee. Let's grant that position then point out that no state has "true" Constitutional Carry. If you argue that point, then I have 3 questions for you:
1. What state permits minors under 18 to carry?
2. What state allows convicted felons to carry?
3. What state allows for carry into "prohibited" places? (State or Federally prohibited)
Since the answer to all three is "none," the point is made. If you argue that there should be restrictions on any of these three, then you are not really in favor of "true" Constitutional Carry.
...shall not be infringed... b*tches: checkmate.
Ammo is slowly coming back to gun stores near you. Ammo is also more commonly available online. I still advise - don't buy ammo at gun stores. Possible exception: large chains where you can buy the same brand / same type for a reasonable price.
From the Handgun Inspector for the region where my range is located, in regards to the complete drying up of carry permit classes:
"One school is running a $20.00 a person special in (city) and is teaching 20 to 30 students a week. Business is out there we just need to find it."
$500 per week for teaching multiple classes is not good business. If I'm not making $1000 to teach for one day, I don't even roll out of bed.
And this from the best USCCA rep in the country:
"HCP classes are struggling right now because they are all either canceled or only 2-5 students."
Meanwhile... Patriot Training has made more in gross receipts through June than in all of 2020... and that only includes one (underperforming) carry permit class in March. For the record, the two carry permit classes taught by Patriot Training last year were both $1000+ classes. And, Essential Pistol is already over $2000, and it is still a month away.
I see no need to offer underperforming services.

Is not an organized article, but a collection of musings from the author.
It is good to see the vast majority of society moving around without a mask anymore. In fact, You are more likely to see a mask in a doctor's office these days, than in the rest of the world.
Doctor's offices that still require the wearing of masks are an interesting study. It would be natural to presume that medical personnel would know the mis know the most about infectious disease. However, many medical personnel are borderline hypochondriacs, and incessantly wear the masks, despite their being no science to prove the efficacy.
Do medical people pursue their careers because they were hypochondriacs to start, or did the study of infectious disease cause them to take on is hypochondriac natures?
Chicken - Egg.
Think masks work? Find me a study conducted prior to 2019 that would indicate that way.
Think the #KungFlu wasn't a political maneuver? Look at all the "studies" that suggest masks work stemming in 2020 and 2021.
If the vaccine really were to, it would not be free and require a propaganda campaign. It would be ungodly unaffordable.
Fauci is a gamma, because he acts like a b*tch. He says one thing and does another. On TV, he says Remdesivir and Hydroxychloroquine do not work as treatments for the #scamdemic . However, he gave both to his family members.
Where did the flu go?
For several years prior to 2019, children would get sick with flu like symptoms, and they would test negative for the flu. The doctors and medical practitioners would say they had a virus that imitated the flu. COVID-19 was discovered in 2019. This author suspects it was here for years prior to discovery.
You cannot spell "I C Fraud" without "Dr Fauci."
Why are the deaths and serious side-effects of the "vaccine" being covered up?
Why are the deaths from the #KungFlu being over-reported?
Alas, I repeat myself.

Why do people make such asinine statements online?
1. Perceived anonymity.
3. Never been to a training class.
4. Jealous and wanted to go to the class, but doesn't have the money.
In this case, this doodle-britches fits the bill for all four.

As as a rule of thumb, this author avoids commenting on news until it is at least three days old. The rationale behind this decision is because so much is #fakenews . We begin to unfold the truth after the narrative has been deconstructed.
The Fauci emails are no different.
So here are some truths we have known for a while that the emails have confirmed:
* Most people will get COVID-19 and not even know it.
* Remdesivir works... and was blocked.
* The virus was “engineered.”
* Masks aren’t necessary or effective.
* Hydroxychloriquine works
* Virtually everything Fauci said on TV after March was a lie. Based on his own words.
Fauci needs to be fired and prosecuted.
He should have consulted Hillary Clinton on how to handle emails.

Is in a recent class, it was observed that one participant had great difficulty establishing a good firm zero. Upon closer inspection, it was discovered that he had brought three different types of ammunition to the class. The instructions for the class were very clear and specific - bring xxx number of rounds, same make, same manufacture. When asked why he did not bring all matching ammunition, the participant complained that what he brought was all that the gun store had.
At the same class, another participant had similar issues. Upon closer inspection, it was discovered that the loose ammunition he had purchased from the gun store had multiple different types included in the bag. A couple of other participants were also having difficulties - mostly with jamming. Upon closer inspection, it was discovered that the ammunition they bought at the local gun store seemed to be reloads, and had been put in a package of a reputable manufacturer (Winchester brass in a Federal box).
At debriefing at the end of the day, one of the pointers that the instructors gave was quite clear:
DON'T BUY AMMUNITION AT GUN STORES!
Why? Let's count off a few reasons:
1. The gun store may not have the quantity of ammunition you seek. Or they may limit how much you can purchase at a time. This could prevent you from being able to buy the correct quantity of all matching ammunition.
2. Some gun stores will repackage ammunition so they can sell it at a higher price. Or sell reloads as if they were new ammo. Before you start complaining that your gun store doesn't do that... are you 100% certain?
3. A "customer" may have tampered with the ammunition.
4. Many gun stores buy up mass quantities of ammunition from bigger stores, then re-sell it to you at a much higher price.
5. Many gun store employees will (intentionally) misinform you about the performance of the ammunition, in an attempt to get you to buy it.
Gun shops have their purpose, and most of them are good at fulfilling that purpose. However, it is worth repeating:
DON'T BUY AMMUNITION AT GUN STORES!

This "gem" was found on Twitter...
Open carry is stupid and foolish. But not because it makes this #LibTard upset.
Give up your dinner & leave? It seems to imply she would punish the restaurant and server by leaving without paying. Why not just ask for a to-go box?
People who "have their last meal before shooting" don't do it this way.
The man's rights do not trump hers in any way. To even suggest that indicates a complete failure to understand what rights are.
He is not terrorizing her. He is fueling her overdeveloped sense of entitlement with fodder that can gain her the attention she seeks.

Found on social media. The pertinence of what is shared is the motivation for this post.
Bat Masterson on Deliberation…
Any man who does not possess courage, proficiency in the use of firearms, and deliberation had better make up his mind at the beginning to settle his personal differences in some other manner than by an appeal to the pistol. I have known men in the West whose courage could not be questioned and whose expertness with the pistol was simply marvelous, who fell easy victims before men who added deliberation to the other two qualities. I will cite a few such instances that came under my own personal observation.
Thirty-five years ago, Charlie Harrison was one of the best-known sporting men west of the Missouri River. He was of an impetuous temperament, quick of action, of unquestioned courage and the most expert man I ever saw with a pistol. He could shoot faster and straighter when shooting at a target than any man I ever knew; then add to that the fact that no man possessed more courage than he did, the natural conclusion would be that he would be a most formidable foe to encounter in a pistol duel.
In 1876 he started for the Black Hills, which was then having a great mining boom on account of the discovery of gold at Deadwood. When Charley reached Cheyenne, he became involved in a personal difficulty with another gambler by the name of Jim Levy, and both men started for their respective lodgings to get their pistols and have it out the first time they met. It looked like 100 to 1 that Harrison would win the fight because of his well-known courage and proficiency in the use of the pistol. Little being known at that time about Jim Levy, Harrison was made a hot favorite in the betting in the various gambling resorts of Cheyenne. The men were not long in getting together after securing their revolvers, which were of Colt’s pattern and of .45 caliber in size.
They met on opposite sides of the principal street of the city and opened fire on each other without a moment’s delay. Harrison, as was expected, fairly set his pistol on fire, he was shooting so fast and managed to fire five shots at Levy before the latter could draw a bead on him. Levy finally let go a shot. It was all that was necessary. Harrison tumbled into the street in a that Harrison was as game a man as Levy could not be doubted; that he could shoot much faster, he had given ample proof, but under extraordinary conditions he had shown that he lacked deliberation and lost his life in consequence. The trouble with Charlie Harrison was just this—he was too anxious. He wanted to shoot too fast. Levy took his time. He looked through the sights on his pistol, which is a very essential thing to do when shooting at an adversary who is returning your fire.
Johnny Sherman, another well-known Western sport and a near relative of the famous Sherman family of Ohio, was another remarkably fine pistol shot. When he happened to be where he could go out and practice with his pistol, he would hunt up a shooting gallery and spend an hour or so practicing with the gallery pistols. In this way he became an adept in the use of the revolver. He was, as everyone who knew him can testify to, as courageous as a lion and yet, when he started in to kill a dentist in a room in a St. Louis hotel, who had, as he claimed, insulted his wife, he emptied his pistol at the dentist without as much as puncturing his clothes, and mind you, the dentist was not returning his fire. Sherman, like Harrison, was in too big a hurry to finish the job and forgot that there were a set of sights on his pistol.
Levie Richardson is another case in point that will serve to show that coolness and deliberation are very essential qualities in a shooting scrape, and unless a man possesses them, he is very apt to fall a victim to the man who does. We were very close friends, and he was thoroughly familiar with the use of firearms and an excellent shot with either pistol or rifle. He was a high-strung fellow who was not afraid of any man. He got a notion into his head one night in Dodge City, Kansas, that a young gambler by the name of Frank Loving, generally known as “Cock-eyed Frank,” had done him some wrong, and forthwith made up his mind to kill him on sight. Frank Loving was a mere boy at the time, but he was not afraid and immediately proceeded to arm himself and be prepared to deal out the best that he had when his man came.
Richardson found Loving sitting unconcernedly on a card table in the Long Branch Saloon and instantly opened fire on him with his Colt’s .45 caliber pistol. He fired five times at his man in rapid success but missed with every shot and was finally shot dead by Loving who took his time about his work. It was the cleanest possible shot. Richardson, like Harrison and Sherman, did not take sufficient time to see what he was doing, and his life paid the penalty. No one, however, who knew both men could truthfully say that Loving possessed a greater degree of courage than Richardson, or that under ordinary conditions he was a better marksman with a gun. Courage, generally speaking, is daring. Nerve is steadiness.
