    Damned Men in Suits..!!

    We heard from our Govt today, in their daily Covid-19 announcements, that from next week it will be ok to go out, with a member of your own family, and shoot clays. OK, fine, thank you. But I want to go to the range and shoot my pistols..

    "You can't..".

    Why..??

    "Each shooter needs an RO, each shooter will be allowed 10 minutes shooting time and then an interval of 15 minutes before the next shooter.. the next shooter will be accompanied by a new RO for the next 10 minute slot and so on..".

    So the carefully worked out risk assessment we had instigated in view of returning to the range has counted for nothing.. Nada, Nicht..!! And, I put the responsibility of this decision fairly and squarely on the shoulder of one who wears a bloody suit to work..!!!

    Right now, dear friends, I am RAGING..!!

    Every man should own a fine firearm, a fine knife and a fine watch.

    Wouldn't having an RO with each shooter reduce social distancing?
    Your Politicians seem to share the same level of brilliance as ours here in the U.S.

    Did some driving in a small city yesterday. Cops parked in cars around town, one at the park making sure the boys don't hoop it up. My interpretation :-) I didn't ask, there is a risk I might have been in violation of a new executive order.

    ...When my eldest son asked me what he should have done, had he been present when I was almost fatally assaulted in 1908, whether he should have run away and seen me killed or whether he should have used his physical force which he could and wanted to use, and defended me, I told him that it was his duty to defend me even by using violence.

    We have curbside delivery at several restaurants. Now, they've placed barriers at every other parking space so your CARS are socially distanced.

    My private gun club has been open since the beginning of this hoop la. They stopped the competitions for a few weeks but the ranges remained open to members. Clays, smgs, rifle, pistol and archery.

    Move to TN Tom ............... you will never go un-shooting.
