Of course not.

Neither should he be retired or own his own 40 acre spread with a 4000 square foot house and a six car garage with three Ferraris.

We all find our way in the world the best we can.

The greatest kindness that we can offer to the 23 year-old is a Level Playing Field by which he can find his place.

At 23... I lived on Taco Bell $0.59 bean burritos and ramen noodles for years.

It all comes down to giving the 23 year-old a fair and honest foothold in the world from which he can climb.

Good decisions and bad decisions occur, but in a world of fair opportunity the 23-year old will make it.

In a world of unfair opportunity and manipulated markets, he will not.




Hell yes!


Level the playing field.

Yes and No - I buy what I want, when I want (if available) and pay the price I want to pay. Call it entitlement or whatever, I still have that choice. I do agree I don't set the cost, the market does, but I do make the choice to buy or not. Economics is not hard.

A young fella was working for me a few years ago as a roofing helper. Basically he was helping get felt and shingles on the roof... doing tearoff and layout work. I was paying him $15 an hour cash.

After the job was over I had no additional work for him at that time.

A month later he asked me if I had additional work.

I told him yes. I had $10 an hour work and $50 an hour work.

He said he would take the $50 an hour work.

I asked him if he had his own HVAC gauges.

He said he did not and did not know anything about HVAC.

Of course he didn't, nor was he willing to learn as a $10 an hour helper.

People grow of their own accord...

We had a club meeting last night. A local gun shop owner was there. He said Remington makes about One third of the ammo. The had been shut down because of the sale of the company. He thought now that there are up and running again it won’t be long until the is ammo again.

Undeniably true.

I believe that it is a necessary avenue to establish superiority.

Right after he inherited a farm.

"Chrony capitalism", Spelling error or a Freudian slip? Actually this post summarizes the situation well. A new kind of shooter's economy, so to speak.

Good words by James, just as good or better by Dwayne.

Been on both sides of the coin.

My kids are just gettin started in Life.

I’ve got enough to cover me the rest of my life, but am a mite worried whether I’ve enough for my 3 kids lives.

In fact if they shoot half as much as I did, I in fact do not.

So have had to improvise a fair bit. I bought several laser sights to hang off their stuff, so they can dry fire regularly, I hope, to gain the ability to squeeze trigger w as little dot sight movement as possible.

Granted it’s no where near as fun as making ragged one hole groups, watching cans fly or cheap soda & milk jugs full of water explode. 🤷🏻‍♂️

Got a bit irritated w the youngest as locally there was a good supply of 10mm available locally for awhile when everything else was gone. Since he, his sister & his mom all have 10mm pistols told him to buy $1000 worth & id pay him back.

Lil f’er goofed off & it didn’t happen, now it’s all gone too.

Strange times indeed.

I feel the same way about ammo as I do about money, I’ve got a fair amount of both & am grateful for such

But it doesn’t mean I don’t feel for the folks that feel like they don’t have enough of either.

The pandemic was hard on our biz, but hit at a time when we’re closer to the end of our careers than the beginning, so we will get by.

But if this would have happened in my 30’s or 40’s I’d likely be in jail for refusing to shut down.

As it is we’re open, but biz is still way off vs pre pandemic levels.

I’m not in position to look down my nose at anyone, never have been, never will be able to.


I'm pretty certain when we sing our anthem and mention the land of the free, the original intent didn't mean cell phones, food stamps and birth control.
