Have you ever noticed that at some matches, it's totally cool to pull out a rulebook when there's a question about a rule, but at other matches it's almost offensive to the parties involved?

Have you ever noticed how some folks just seemingly want to buy junk? It's like some people just want to buy the underdog gun, and shoot it well so bad that they'll ask for advice, then completely ignore it. 

Have you ever noticed that some folks just can't put their machismo away for any reason? A couple weeks ago I encouraged you to go buy a tourniquet, and I was surprised by the reaction of some folks, saying they don't need one, because they'll just use their belt, etc. I'll be honest, I don't think you probably can use most belts to stop serious bleeding, and if you can, I have my doubts that you'll be able to put it on and find a makeshift windlass to cinch it down before you lose too much blood. Listen, I like to do tinker and do things myself, but TQ's aren't expensive and they can save your life. Don't take my word for it though, I'm just a dude. Here's what the experts have to say about it.  

Q&A

Billy asked me about changing a stage plan after seeing someone else shoot a stage differently than your plan. Generally, I think it's a bad idea. I've done it a few times, and it usually doesn't work out if I've already come up with a good plan, and visualized it, etc. However, there's been a time or two when I've come up with a plan, and then seen someone change it in a way that makes a DRASTIC difference, and I've went for it too. 

Jay in Nebraska asks about having bullets backwards in his magazine pouches. I generally think it's poor form, and I think either bullets out, or bullets forward are superior ways of doing it. 

The News

Trump could repeal the gun ban on Army Corps of Engineers land. This is really relevant to my interests, as there's a LOT of ACoE land around me (Falls Lake area) that I spend a good bit of time on. I've love to see this happen.
