Only Criminals Would Have Guns

Our thoughts go out to Jackie and Ronald Bracey, both for the situation caused by criminals and the hours they worried about their dog Buddy. We’d feel the same way if any of our dogs were lost but happily Buddy has returned home! This story is an example of why you need to have the skills, tools and mindset to protect yourself, your family, your property and your dog.

Buddy, the dog, took off during a violent home invasion.

Four men are accused of holding Jackie Bracey at gunpoint. But Ronald Bracey didn’t hesitate to protect his wife.

He grabbed his gun, firing eight rounds at the intruders – hitting one in the shoulder – and chased them off. Three of the men were caught and arrested.

And yes, he did the absolute right thing!

Assault Rifle And Hunting Rifle vs Battle Rifle

Discussion from Practical Preparedness about assault, hunting and battle rifles:

MBR News Excerpt:

I keep coming back to this argument in my head so I figured I should post it up for.those of you more like minded than the average gun board. I keep going from an ar15 and a r700 rifle in 308 as a pair to a m14 battle rifle. I’ve actually done this swap a couple times already and am back to the pair and am contemplating another trade. In my family, it is just my wife and I. She doesn’t shoot much but does occasionally. My uses for my rifle are self defense as well as medium game hunting, mostly whitetails. I like the ar15 mostly because of my 10th years of military training with it. I know what its capable of but find it lacking in the power class for my liking. I prefer 308 in my bolt guns also because I’m familiar with it from my military training. I also appreciate the precision of it but am realistic enough to know 1-2moa is good enough for my intended purposes.

Our opinion is that .308 is the only rifle caliber for a battle rifle. And there are plenty of .308 rifle options that can be made suitable for a female or infrequent shooter – but training is the best solution. With proper training anyone can be a competent and comfortable .308 shooter.
