It came to my attention that The Miller tagged me in a couple of memes.
First, he apparently has NO taste whatsoever, because he nominated me for the Liebster Blog award.
The rules are as follows:
– Paste the image on our blog.
– Link back to the blogger who gave us the award.
– Pick our five favorite blogs with less than 200 followers, and leave a comment on their blog to let them know they have received the award.
– Hope that the five blogs chosen will keep spreading the love and pass it on to five more blogs.
Because I like breaking molds, my list includes almost no gunblogs. It does, however, include a bunch of people I really like. Their political opinions probably won’t agree with yours, so IF you decide to visit their blogs, please be kind.
I was also tagged in the honest gun owners meme:
“I will write down 5 things that indicate, to me, that a gun owner or shooter maybe is an honest one; I say ‘maybe’ because I have known some seemingly honest gun owners to tell some really tall tales. Then I will tag 5 other gun owners who are also bloggers and I hope each will play along, each listing, in their blogs, at least 3 things that are indicative a gun owner is an honest one, then sending the challenge of this meme on to 5 other gun owner who are also bloggers.”
My list is pretty short:
1 – They immediately disapprove of posed photos in which an individual is fingering the trigger of a firearm. This is pretty indicative of their trigger discipline, particularly if it’s an involuntary response. I’m more likely to feel comfortable shooting with this person.
2 – They invite anyone and everyone to fire anything they have at the range with them…and will offer ammo
3 – They will openly share situations where they’ve made a major error. They will discuss what happened, where they went wrong, and how to avoid it.
4 – They will admit when their shortcomings are causing poor groupings or generally bad targets. They might joke that the sights are off on a particular firearm, or that the recoil is weird, or the ammo isn’t “right,” but they make it obvious that they’re joking.
5 – They’re honest about why they like or dislike a particular firearm. They will also admit they can’t make a decision because they haven’t handled a particular firearm.
Now, everyone I would have picked has been tagged. If there’s anyone left who wants to play along, please feel free!
