True story... I saw that same sign (without the target icon) posted under a men's urinal in my college freshman dorm, supposedly put there by the cleaning service crew.
 
Here's a little video that we put together here in Virginia. Thought some of you might appreciate it here.

Thought I'd share some suggestions after my first year in the world of handguns. Hope some of you find them useful. Feel free to chime in with your own tips as well. (Moderators, yeah this is a link, but it's a link to a non-commercial blog, and I welcome suggestions on the topic from this community. If you deem it inappropriate, feel free to delete it.)

As an NRA Instructor, with 20 years LEO and having had handguns since I was 12, so for 43 years, I think your tips are spot on.

The good does not line the bad's pockets with money.  

The bad, or maybe the greedy profit from the bad going to jail.  (https://www.google.com/webhp?sourceid=chrome-instant&ion=1&espv=2&ie=UTF-8#q=jail+companies+profiting&spell=1)

Or creating a situation where war is the end result of profit.  I.E. halliburton

Bringing drugs in to America.  Or banning hemp or cannabis for the paper companies to keep the money...in their pockets.  (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Legal_history_of_cannabis_in_the_United_States).

Guns save lives.  Good.
Criminals profit from bad.  Take the good away and you are left with the bad.

Wouldn't it be great if credit cards were nothing more than a bad nightmare?

How does the security of 3 mag-stripe credit card alternatives stack up?

How real is it?
We're really bad in the software world at recognizing and taking action against real threats. We fail to see and fully grok the threats that are bearing down on us, and as a result, our software all too often contains security defects that are well understo...

I am a bit ambivalent on ballistol for mixing with froglube. Maybe I should use that on some of the old , military bolts, though. It is what i use on black powder. (Don't use froglube on anythimg I need to use soap and water on, hah)

Trying to be safe. In making their "all mushrooms are bad" argument, they're attacking the good guys and the bad guys. Seems wrong to me. YMMV.
