Fortunately the "tree Of Life" tends to be self pruning, and dead wood tends to remove itself. I am of the opinion that any shooting discipline is worth the investment in obtaining, and any round fired at a target is a oppurtunity to improve. If You don't like to shoot then maybe You need a new hobby. No a 1858 Remington is not a viable concealed carry weapon unless you are 6'8'" and weigh 400lbs, but it is a very good open carry weapon especially if You carry a spare pre capped cyelender in a loader pouch. Shotguns are very reliable hunting tools, and go from small to large game just by changing the round. Revolvers can and always will be a viable CCW, as well as fun to shoot. No, Not
all of my activities are centered around TSHTF, or TEOTWAWKI, and if that was all I had to live for I dont think I could bear the burden. Big Brother will not come for the guns, after the first group is brought down in a section8 project or at a gathering, they will learn to deal with the disapointment of not getting their way.
