CNN is playing a promo for this upcoming series, beginning sometime @6am Monday. I don't know who they're referring to as "pledging allegiance to the Constitution", but the footage looks more like one of our TeaParties!

CNN--are they a news station, or just another DNC mouthpiece?

Don't need a TV special to answer that one.

Gosh, how'd that happen? They missed the grudge the commies-in-control have against Americans.

This looks suspiciously like counter-programming put on to counter the idea that we have Islamic terrorists in our midst.

Of course, CNN, the REAL problem is Tea Party folks, not Muslims who shoot and kill Americans.

We’ve already been tagged, don’t you know. I’ve bee nan extremist for years.

“Extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice, moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue.”

“When peaceful revolution becomes impossible, violent revolution becomes inevitable.”

It’s just the beginning of more BS coming from the fuhrer obama. Sooner or later something is going to happen and all h*ll is going to reign down inside our own borders.

What’s wierd is that I’ve seen those exact quotes on lefty sites...in favor of their position, of course. How is that possible, when we have polar opposite opinions? Inevitably, I see that second one coming true...there is NO WAY to resolve the divide.

NOTE TO CNN: I say we just line you-all up and get it over with... explain to you and our elected servants once and for all that we have absolutely no violent intentions, that we intend to continue to use our right of redressing grievances to our Government through peaceable assembly, and by voting all of them out of office over the next 3 Novembers.

So, apart from having to look for actual employment (good luck, right?!), they have absolutely nothing to worry about from us.

There CNN, now isn't that much better? You go dream about Ma0bama, and leave the real thinking to the grownups. :-)

I really hope these commies keep tagging regular Americans as extremists...the more they do it, the more people can see through their phony game.

The people on their side are committing all the violence, viciously attacking our female candidates with sexism, attacking our minority candidates with racist slurs, attacking our peaceful protesters with false labels and committing all manner of crimes against the Constitution and Freedom. They can't cover their lies for much longer.

I hold a grudge against any government which doesn’t honor the Constitution.

Bravo! Excellent shooting. I shot 236 overall at the last one. My sitting position needs work.

Teh difference is that we hew to the traditions and the principles of the Founders. Liberty instead of slavery. Not to mention the fact that we have the weapons, the training and the will to use them. These lefties have no idea how mcuh anger and animus against them has built up in quiet folks like us who have just been minding our own business for years and years.

Most of the leftards out there will fold like cheap lawnchairs when the consequences of their very bad ideas finally overtake them.

As for the ones who wish to fight, well - we’ve got something for them, too.

Your message is reminiscent of a post I made years ago shortly before I started getting checked closely before boarding airplanes and one time after I boarded an Amtrak train.

It took me a while but after years of frustrated observation I came to the conclusion our government, as designed, is as good as a government could get.

Now those who disrespect the American people and our tradition of individual freedom, those who demean the Constitution publicly, who frequently and sometimes with barely contained glee and who openly commit high crimes and misdemeaners while holding onto public office with an arrogance gained from selling the People’s power to very special interests and willingly being mislead by a bloated ego that has no room for fear of righteous payback, those are wholly deserving of our wrath.

Some of them openly ridicule the very idea of the Constitution, that is treason in my book.

Your book, my book and Mr. Webster’s book, too. And I’ll bet there is a whole lot more out there who don’t need no stinkin’ book to recognize treachery.

Bravo to you! I hadn’t broken 225 yet. I need standing and sitting work. I shoot an off the shelf Marlin 795.

Yeah it’s hard for some of us older folks to hit some of the positions. The prone-stand with safety on-prone routine can be a little difficult, too. But it’s great training.

Funny thing about the standing position - that’s one area where I didn’t expect to do well, bit’s one of my most accurate. The plain old canvas sling on my StG 58 FAL gives me a solid platform in the hasty sling mode. The loop sling’s great if you have the time to se it up.

Also, I shot that score without once using the StG 58 built-in bipod. So I should be able to do even better with the bipod. Haven’t had the time to test the premise, though.
