Hello everybody. Gunny Mac here. I hope today finds you safe and sound and locked and loaded.
The folks at Allison Arms wanted me to discuss a time when I was in the military and a gun safety issue came up. We often think of people who are, or have been, in the military as weapons experts. Believe me, there is nothing further from the truth. Yes, we have had more exposure and experience in handling guns in a variety of situations. And yes, service in the military can be an excellent foundation for a safe and healthy gun ownership experience. But, believe me, things happen, and here is such an example.
When Xerces I invaded Greece in 480BC, and demanded that the Spartans surrender their weapons, King Leonidas I responded with "MOLON LABE", thus beginning The Battle of Thermopylae...
We all know to keep our finger off the trigger. You never put your finger on the trigger until you’re ready to send lead downrange. You know it, I know it’s engraved into our soul. When Saint Peter asks us at the Pearly Gates, what commandment number one is? Trigger discipline will run through your mind.
Greetings and welcome to the first edition of Shootin With The Gunny. (Presented by Allison Arms).
The intent of this article, initially, was to discuss weapon safety, proper handling techniques, and potential mistakes we all can make. However, considering the recent Coronavirus outbreak, I thought I would change direction just a little bit and discuss new gun ownership.
A collection of wise advise, common sense and just plan old education goodness...
