Random thoughts.. Brought to you by Kindle

So the Kindle is a blessing and a curse. I am jumping between books, something I rarely did with dead tree media. One is from a former president of the company I worked for, one is the history of the Glock, another is a classic by Jeff Cooper, and one is by Mas Ayoob. 

"You are no more armed because you are wearing a pistol than you are a musician because you own a guitar." - Jeff Cooper. How true. So many think they can sit through the class, take the written test, shoot 40 rounds and call it a done deal. Sorry, it does not work like that. A pistol on one's person is not a talisman that wards off evil in and of itself.

Situational awareness DOES have a plus: " ...when you're actively looking for thorns in the bush, you can't help but smell the roses". -Mas Ayoob

I'm not ADD, but this Kindle thing might make me qualify! 


  1. That quote by Jeff Cooper is so true. I need to have a sign with that quote made for my range.

  2. I'm reminded of how true that is every time I miss one than one month practicing at the range.
    Takes me two magazines just to get back to where I was.

  3. I love reading stuff by Ayoob.

    You just need more Kindle discipline. ;)

  4. Good point(s), and I'm currently reading the Glock book, Reagan Diaries, and a SF book...LOL
