Gun vs Knife

Saw a very informative video today.  First it was very graphic showing the damage a knife con do to the human body.  Then drills and experiments that demonstrated the 21 foot rule. 

Taking a knife to a gun fight?  If the gun is holstered, then inside 20 feet, I'd bet on the knife.

I've always said that if I'm ever in a handgun fight, I'd want it to be at any distance over 30 yards.  The vast majority of handgunners never shoot past 25 yards, and most keep it at 21 feet.  For me, 25 yards is my minimum, then 50 and 75.  If shooting my 357 or 454 I start at 50 yards, then 100 and occasionally stretch it out to 200 yards.

So bring a knife to a gun fight. Hell yes, if you're close.

Learned Something

Haven't been to the stables for a few days.  Got there this afternoon and saw a halter on my little mare.  I never leave her halter on, because that's not a safe thing to do.  Also it wasn't her halter.  No one saw it happen, but she jumped the fence and was in the neighbors back yard.  The property owner's daughter grabbed a halter, walked up to my mare and lead her back home.

Don't know why or what happened, but I learned that my Rocky Mountain mare can jump a fence that is about 4 feet tall.  She's a great little trail horse, but that's amazing to me because she's just barely 14.3 hands tall.  So a horse that's just about 4 feet 8 inches at the withers jumped a fence that is close to 4 feet tall.  Amazing.

The UN Stinks

For decades I thought the UN was a pox on the good old USA.  It seems that most members are governments that have little or no respect for their own people, even more so than here.  So when most were against recognizing Jerusalem as the capital I was not surprised.  As far as I'm concerned, the UN is a huge waste of US tax dollars.  Wouldn't hurt my feelings if the whole bunch was kicked out of the country.

On another subject, I took ammo inventory today.  Seems I'm below the Boss mandated minimum of 1,000 rounds for the CETME.  Time to pick up a few hundred rounds of 7.62 x 51.

Early Christmas Gathering

Had a small early Christmas with our adopted family Sunday.  Received a couple of T-shirts that I like.  The first says YOUR OPINION MATTERS . . . JUST NOT TO ME.  The second says I DON'T GIVE A then there's a graphic of a rat leading a donkey on a rope.

The other great gift was a string tied to about a dozen little bottles of booze.
