We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
I'm reading a book about an MP who is staked out in a right wing extreme militia camp in Montana. One of his FBI buddies has an AK47 aimed at the head of the bad guy, and the hero is on a roof with a Barrett. The Barrett makes the hit a mere second before the AK47. The author spent three pages describing the preparations the sniper took to get his shot - he was 25 miles away, and then he combined that 'lesson' with the AK47's genius. They shoot between heartbeats. I don't think I breathed the whole time, but it was very neat learning about it. The bad guy's head exploded.
(I might have exaggerated the distance for the Barrett.)
I've been working on trigger control...fleshy tip of the finger on the trigger, only moving first two knuckles, a slow squeeze letting the trigger break suprise you. I was kind of wondering if the young lady might be interested in giving me a little trigger time. I'm willing to work like a slave on my technique.
