With the first sip of glorious coffee this morning my brain went straight into drive. Here is where it is going...
Having been in the situation where pulling the trigger is the only solution there is to the problem. I
understand why people feel anguish over taking the life of another human being. Why some people feel that their souls are marked and why they can't look at themselves in the mirror afterwards. Once your hand is forced, once you have to act, once there is no alternative solution available the person in your cross hairs, on your dot or on the "sight post" ceases to be a person. They become a "Target", a "subject" or anything that
takes the human out of the equation. You can not sit and dwell on morality during the situation or you will be the "Victim".
Steel your heart and soul, you carry and train to defend yourself, your family and your fellow Americans. Know that if and when the situation arises, to live, you must act. It's either them or you and you are going to survive.
Drink more coffee...Keep em Loaded, Keep em Ready!

As a Gun Fighter you must separate yourself from the chaos of the moment mentally. You must be able to have a clear headed view of events from the outside. Your body will react with your training and your mind will process it nano seconds before the reaction. There is always a specific trigger to the event that causes your training to kick in. It could be a movement, an action, a "twitch" or a blatant situation that you walk into. We train to ingrain our reactions into our bodies and minds so that while you think it's a reflexive action to threat it's actually a measured response to a situation. Separating yourself mentally from the chaos of the
moment is only possible through training, it happens in the nano seconds, your mind connects all the dots and causes the reaction based on the situation and your training.

There is a threat to America, we all know what it is, yet not one person is actually saying it. We beat around the bush saying its the Liberals or the Democrats or the Conservatives or the Republicans. We accuse those on welfare or food stamps or other handouts of being the threat. We say its the Givernment, the President or the alphabet soup of three letter abbreviated organizations. Yet we never name the actual threat to America.
Americans are the threat. Americans that have grown soft and comfortable with laziness are America's threat. Americans that have forgotten what our forefathers envisioned for this great nation, the principles and ideals
that the Constitution was based on. Americans that are willing to give an once of freedom for a pound of security. Americans that forgotten their roots, their history and their pride. This is the greatest threat to America.
I have not forgotten the principles or ideals. I have not forgotten our history or past. I have seen and lived the cost of freedom and liberty and I still believe. I will not give up one once of freedom for any amount of security. I will fight, to the death if need be, to continue to live as an American should. Free to
write and say what is needed. Free to work where I want or need to. Free to make my own mistakes and free to accept responsibility for them.
I am an American, but I have not forgotten...

For the past few mornings I have been posting my waking thoughts while sipping nature's wake up nectar. I have been including you all in my humble opinions and ideas. I wish to impart just a little wisdom I have gained from life experience, which isn't near as much as some since I am only 31.
There are certain things you appreciate more than others. Even though... I may not show them enough, for me it's my family. My wife has seen me through my darkest days, my nightmares and my own torment and is still here. My children, all three, who have put up with me being gone, being "mean" and still give me a hug
exactly when I don't think I want one but need one. My dogs, all 7, that may drive me nuts by barking all day, but also comfort me in ways only a dog can, without judgment or reservation.
These are the things that I will gladly lay my life down for. If that means I have to continue to fight for them
to have a future in freedom and liberty then I will do it. If that means I have to spill more blood to defend their America then so be it. If that means for them to have a chance in life I must give my own then there is no question. My family is my motivation, my rock and the background for my moral code.
So my fellow Shooters, American Gun Rights members, Outlaw Gang Instructors and members I leave you this morning to go forth and attack the morning with conviction and passion. I leave you to identify what makes you tick and what you appreciate the most. I beg of you to look deep and figure out what is the most important part of your life and commit to protect them with your heart and soul.
