MAGA : Make America Gun-friendly Again


I am Nobody

"Meditation with a loaded gun". Man, this philosophy alone is worth giving this man your attention. This is such a great video! It cannot be said enough that training is the only way to acquire any real skill and discipline. This video is worth more than any class you can physically attend!

What a great film.

I'm British and I'm glad that my forefathers tried to disarm you. Without them, you wouldn't have made a stand and have the freedom that you have today. We Brits, on the other hand, have effectively been disarmed by successive governments. Fight for 2A - NEVER surrender your right to bear arms. I wish we hadn't.

Watching from the UK. Jealous. Expressing opinions like yours in my country would probably get you on a government watch list. Somewhere along the way we lost our freedom.

A brilliant video! but remember this American citizens ...We the British have been confiscated of our handguns by GOVERNMENT using the false flag of DUNBLANE. Your founding Fathers were so insightful, they gave you LIBERTY. We have none now, hand guns are prohibited, but still illegally in the untrained hands of criminals leaving the true patriots helpless from government or criminal, now we are disempowered and prohibited from defending against government and criminals, such which is promoted and supported by the judiciary that enforces anti-freedom laws. i.e. freedom down the pan. Don't go this route. Resist the liberals and anti-gun lawmakers, they represent only big corporate government. Long live the Republic and swift people's justice to the destroyers of freedom.

What really upsets me is when a man be it Dad, Brother or Boyfriend takes a young lady out and give them a 12 Ga 3" Magnum or a big caliber hand gun then watch the gun half knock them down or almost break their nose from the Recoil then stand there and Laugh. My lady friend is also my shooting buddy. I have enjoyed seeing her go from never fired a gun to tearing up steel plates at 20 yards. Instead of being the Bubba l got an Instructor friend spend about 4 hours with her. She is an excellent and safe shooter and their was no Drama getting her started. Next l have to get her to hand loading then l feel like she could pass her newfound hobby down to her daughter's!

I love how he applies the principles and disciplines of Zen and puts it as "Meditation with a loaded gun." It's very true. Going to the range today and I'm definitely going to apply more of these skills more often.
Edit/Follow Up: I kind of wish I didn't know tensing up before the shot was a thing because it's all I thought about for 250+ rounds and a lot of over thinking happened. I am glad that I'm aware of it tho and I definitely need to work on that a lot. Like, a lot a lot.

This may be the best pro-gun video I've ever seen.

Bubba'd. LOL. Sure it happens...but... there are some "Bubba's" who know to start out women, youngsters and new shooters with small caliber guns (ie : .22 cal) and get the new shooter comfortable and then move up in recoil producing rounds. Not all "Bubba's" are idiots. Other than that , outstanding video. Love it.

Hi, thanks for the great video. I am writing from Prague, Czech Rep., and we are fighting the same fight here: the Czech Republic is one of the very few — if not the only one, I am not sure — European “shall issue” countries, i.e. countries where people actually have the right to keep and carry. Now, however, Brussels bureaucrats have decided to “fight terrorism” by disarming its potential victims (makes sense, right?) and are forcing their idiocy on all the EU countries, us included. And unfortunately we don't have — unlike you in the US — our gun rights anchored in the constitution, therefore our position is weaker and I am afraid in long term view probably lost. … So who knows, maybe in five or ten years I am moving to Texas. I've already got friends there anyway. :-)
