1st Amendment has officially come under full frontal assault. All it took was one man with the money to pay for truth and transparency to shake the foundations of tyranny. Are you awake? Do you understand what just happened?? Elon just drew a line in the sand. Does he even know what just happened? What he just put in motion? History is taking place...Keep yer powder dry.

Sometimes you just wanna go back in and watch some you grew up on and loved.

Scene is towards end of movie. There's an ED-209 on sentry duty of main entrance of the building. whips out the and wastes it. Camera pans back and there's a dang blank stove piped in chamber cuz it likely didn't have enough of a powder charge to fully cycle the bolt. What ever... still the movie!!

Get your feet in the sand.
Enjoy life when you can!
James 4:14
Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.


The needs the in a big way!
God is to , to , and to .



And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great w***e that sitteth upon many waters:
2 With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication.
3 So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.
4 And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and the filthiness of her fornication:
5 And upon her forehead was a name written, Mystery, Babylon The Great, The Mother Of Harlots And Abominations Of The Earth.
6 And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.


Keep close to your heart the reason you stand your ground.

Ephesians 6:16
In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one.

The LORD or God is our shield. But, sometimes He uses us to be the shield for others. We owe those innocent people, and we owe our God, our love and our servitude.

Romans 12:1
By the mercies of God, present yourself as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship.

Stand fast in your faith, and call on your father who is in Heaven. In his His might, He crushes our enemies and brings truth to the light. He will redeem us!!

Psalm 27:1-3
The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The LORD is the of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? When evildoers assail me to eat up my flesh, my adversaries and foes, it is they who will stumble and fall. Though an army encamp against me, my heart shall not fear; though war arise against me, yet I will maintain my confidence.

Vengeance is Mine, saith the LORD!! These aren't my words. They're His!

Proverbs 6:16-19
There are six things that the Lord hates, seven that are an abomination to him: Haughty eyes, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devices wicked plans, feet that make haste to run to evil, a false witness who breathes out lies, and one who sows discord among brothers.

What's the difference between semi-auto pistols and revolvers?
Besides the fact that you can carry upwards of 2x - 4x as much ammo in a semi, that when a revolver does fail, it's usually catastrophic and cannot be cleared in the field.

As an instructor, I've seen multiple revolver failures. They're always of great concern!
