The above picture is an old wives' tale training, it is not true. If you know how to shoot and control your trigger pull, press, squeeze or whatever you want to call it, it does not matter if you use your toe or thumb to move the trigger back, anyone that can shoot correctly can use any part of their finger, they are ether be on target and they do not jerk the trigger so the bullet hits the target, or they will be off target and will jerk the trigger and miss. If the sights are on target when the bullet leaves the gun, it will hit. Don't fall for these easy fixes or things to blame for you missing.
Fundamentals: Grip, Stance, sight alignment, sight picture, smooth pressure on the trigger until the gun goes bang.

How To Make Pemmican: A Survival Superfood That Can Last 50 Years
Packed with calories and nutrition and able to be packed and stored for long periods, pemmican is often called the ultimate survival food.
Created by Native Americans and adopted by European explorers of the New World, pemmican is a concentrated blend of fat and protein from lean, dried meat. The word "pemmican" is derived from the Cree root word "pimi" for "fat" or "grease." Traditionally, the meats used in pemmican included bison, moose, deer and elk. Beef can be used as well.
The secret to pemmican's long shelf life is in properly rendering the fat from the meat. The pemmican can be stored in airtight containers without refrigeration in a cool, dark and dry place. If made and stored property, it can last for years or even decades. There are reports of some pemmican lasting 50 or more years.
Let's look at the steps to making pemmican.
1. Dry the meat. Cut off all the fat, and then slice the meat as thinly as possible before placing it on a drying rack in full sunlight. Another option is to place the meat directly on your oven rack with the oven temperature at its lowest setting. The meat needs to be dry enough that it cracks when you try to bend it. Adding salt will extend the shelf life. The more salt you add, the longer it will last.
2. Grind the meat. Now you need to grind the meat until it is powder form. If you do not have a food processor, mince the meat and then grind it in the blender. If you are in a survival situation, chop the meat into small bits and then crush it into a powder.
3. Render the fat. Now heat the fat in a crockpot, in the oven or on the stove. Use a low setting for several hours, and be sure to stir the fat occasionally until it has stopped bubbling. Then pour it through a mesh strainer to filter out any pieces.
4. Mix the meat with any dry extras. If you are using any nuts or dried fruit, such as raisins, dried cherries or cranberries, mix it with the dried meat in a large bowl (leaving room for the fat). Note: These extras reduce the shelf life.
5. Add the fat. Next, add one part of fat per every two parts of the dried meat mixture (add more fat if needed). Slowly pour the hot liquefied fat into the meat mixture and stir well.
6. Add any wet extras. If you are adding wet ingredients such as honey, maple syrup or peanut butter, mix them in now. If the mixture seems too wet, you can add a little almond meal to get it to your desired consistency. You also may add salt to taste if you like. Note: These extras will reduce the shelf life.
7. Form the pemmican. A popular method is to spread the mixture into a casserole dish. Let it get firm before cutting it into squares or bar sizes. If you prefer, you can form the mixture into balls.
8. Store the pemmican. Once cut, place it into airtight containers and store them in a cool, dark and dry place. You also store your pemmican in zippered bags in your freezer.
There are many varieties of pemmican, but they all use the basic instructions. Many other recipes begin with a 1:1:1 ratio of basic ingredients such as:
1 cup of dried meat
1 cup of dried fruit or berries
1 cup of melted animal fat
Pemmican is surprisingly filling and can supply energy for hours.
You can experiment to find the recipe that works well for you. Label the pemmican you make with the ingredients and proportions you used, so you will know what combinations work well and how you might want to tweak a certain recipe a little in the future.

Here is a PDF file on How To Make Pemmican
Here is another recipe you can use if you want to try making your own supply of pemmican.
1. Take two pounds of beef and cut it into small strips.
2. Prepare the beef by either;
a. Cooking it very well and letting it dry until it is hard, or
b. Putting the beef in the sun until it is very dry.
3. Crush the beef by either
a. Pounding it with a hammer until it turns into a powder, or
b. Putting it through a meat grinder.
4. Add about one half-cup of raisins for each pound of beef. (Other berries can also be used if you prefer - like chokecherries, raspberries or currants.)
5. Put the ground beef and berries into a pie plate and pour hot beef fat or sheep fat on top until the beef and berries are covered. Be careful! Hot fat can cause very bad burns.
6. Stir the hot fat, ground beef and berries together until the fat begins to get hard.
7. Let the mixture cool and cut it into squares just like you would fudge. It is better to make a little more pemmican than you think you need. Remember, pemmican does not spoil. The pemmican you make will not spoil for two or three years if you take care to keep it as cool and dry as possible.

The Five Monkeys Experiment
An experimenter puts 5 monkeys in a large cage. High up at the top of the cage, well beyond the reach of the monkeys, is a bunch of bananas. Underneath the bananas is a ladder.
The monkeys immediately spot the bananas and one begins to climb the ladder. As he does, however, the experimenter sprays him with a stream of cold water. Then, he proceeds to spray each of the other monkeys.
The monkey on the ladder scrambles off. And all 5 sit for a time on the floor, wet, cold, and bewildered. Soon, though, the temptation of the bananas is too great, and another monkey begins to climb the ladder. Again, the experimenter sprays the ambitious monkey with cold water and all the other monkeys as well. When a third monkey tries to climb the ladder, the other monkeys, wanting to avoid the cold spray, pull him off the ladder and beat him. The monkeys learned to associate going up the ladder with getting sprayed.
Now one monkey is removed and a new monkey is introduced to the cage. Spotting the bananas, he naively begins to climb the ladder. The other monkeys pull him off and beat him.
Here's where it gets interesting. The experimenter removes a second one of the original monkeys from the cage and replaces him with a new monkey. Again, the new monkey begins to climb the ladder and, again, the other monkeys pull him off and beat him, including the monkey who had never been sprayed. Each original monkey is removed until no monkey that has ever been sprayed is still in the cage.
By the end of the experiment, none of the original monkeys were left and yet, despite none of them ever experiencing the cold, wet, spray, they had all learned never to try and go for the bananas and they would continue to beat any new monkey that tried.
If you could ask the Monkeys why they don't go for the Banana and why they beat others for trying, they would probably say:
That is just how it has always been done.

The Story of a Chinese Farmer
Once upon a time there was a Chinese Farmer who lost a horse and the horse ran away.
And that evening all neighbors came around and said that's too bad
And the Farmer said, Maybe?
And the next day the horse returned and brought with him seven other wild horses.
And that evening all the neighbors came and said that is great isn't it.
And the Farmer said, Maybe?
The next day his son was riding and trying to tame one of the horses and was thrown and broke his leg.
And all the neighbors came and said that is really bad isn't it
And the Farmer said, Maybe?
The next day the army officers came by looking for soldiers and they saw his son had a broken leg and so they rejected his son because of the broken leg.
And all the neighbors came and said isn't the wonderful
And the Farmer said Maybe?
The whole process of nature is an integrated process of immense complexity and it is really impossible to tell whether anything that happens is either good or bad.
Because you never know what will be the consequences of the misfortunes and you will never know what will be the consequences of good fortune.
So just when you think a situation is bad or unwinnable, you just never know what will happen next. So sometimes something bad can turn into something good.

Yanez Vs Philando Castile Fatal Shooting Review
In 2016, the first "live" shooting death was aired on Facebook. Since then more information and developments have surfaced. I have a few documents linked here of the transcripts, the video from the police car's dash camera, the facebook live video, Photos used by the prosecution at trial, the Probable Cause charging document for the Officer, the hack Use of Force Expert report and links to three videos I did on this topic.
There are lots of lessons to be learned from this case. Anyone carrying a gun should learn from this. Your statements, actions and beliefs will all be attacked and questioned, if you use your gun to defend yourself. What you knew at the time of the shooting and your beliefs and actions "reasonable". The jury found that the Officer DID NOT commit any crime and his beliefs were reasonable. The Gov, the prosecution and the hired expert found the Officer's actions were NOT reasonable. Good thing the Jury has the last word. I agree with the jury.

Violence of action means the unrestricted use of speed, strength, surprise, and aggression to achieve total dominance against your enemy. I'm repeating this to drive home the concept that any fighting technique is useless unless you first totally commit to violence of action. Don't be afraid to hit first, and when you do, hit hard. Remember, you are fighting because this is the best and only option. Pull the trigger -- because you are in a battle for your life! Your instincts, assessment, and situational awareness have told you that you are in mortal danger. You don't know the other person's intentions fully, and you never can. What you can do is survive -- it is your right to not be killed or harmed by another person. As with most things survival-related, fighting has its own set of priorities that need to be addressed at lightning speed.

DETERMINING BULLET RMP
Here is a simple formula for calculating bullet RPM:
MV x (12/twist rate in inches) x 60 = Bullet RPM
Quick Version: MV X 720/Twist Rate = RPM
Example One: In a 1:12? twist barrel the bullet will make one complete revolution for every 12? (or 1 foot) it travels through the bore. This makes the RPM calculation very easy. With a velocity of 3000 feet per second (FPS), in a 1:12? twist barrel, the bullet will spin 3000 revolutions per SECOND (because it is traveling exactly one foot, and thereby making one complete revolution, in 1/3000 of a second).
To convert to RPM, simply multiply by 60 since there are 60 seconds in a minute. Thus, at 3000 FPS, a bullet will be spinning at 3000 x 60, or 180,000 RPM, when it leaves the barrel.
Example Two: What about a faster twist rate, say a 1:8? twist? We know the bullet will be spinning faster than in Example One, but how much faster? Using the formula, this is simple to calculate. Assuming the same MV of 3000 FPS, the bullet makes 12/8 or 1.5 revolutions for each 12? or one foot it travels in the bore. Accordingly, the RPM is 3000 x (12/8) x 60, or 270,000 RPM.
NOTE: Bullets lose about 75 FPS for every inch you remove from the barrel
Mix of too many different units (inch, feet, second, minute), so align them first.
1/7 rev/inch * 12 inch/feet = 12/7 rev/feet.
3000 feet/sec * 60 sec/min = 180000 feet/min.
After that, it's easy. 12/7 rev/feet * 180000 feet/min = 308571 rev/min.
It's still not as fast as the speed in which some of our founders are spinning their graves while Govt is destroying the constitution.?
1 in 12 twist = 1 revolution per foot. 3,000 feet per second x one revolution per foot = 3,000 revolutions per second. 3,000 revolutions per second x 60 seconds in a min = 180,000 revolutions in a min. 1 in 7 twist = 1.714 revolutions per foot. 3,000 feet per second x 1.714 revolutions per foot = 5,142 revolutions per second. 5,142 revolutions per second x 60 seconds in a min = 308,520 revolutions in a min.
Yea, 1 in 7 is the highest twist rate I have seen. If you go with too high a twist rate the bullet can blow apart from spinning too fast. It also wears the barrel out faster. I see what you are saying about going with a high twist rate.
Eventually it would be like trying to push a bolt through a nut. lol There is a visual. With the rates we are dealing with, that's not a big issue. It may be a factor but with my reloading I don't see a difference in velocity with different twist rates.
Standard chronos would be hard pressed to accurately pick up on a difference of just a few fps though. There could be a small difference in velocity but, if there is, it's very small. Yes, people often say heavier bullets need a higher twist rate but it's actually the length that's important. Heavier = longer so it's just a matter of semantics.
Designers want the lowest twist rate that will stabilize the bullet being used. A tighter twist rate = the bullet spins more in the barrel = more heat from friction. That's why I suspect higher twist does lower velocity.
It's just not enough for me to measure the difference. A barrel with a higher twist rate wears out faster. That's the biggest practical factor. If you look at a 1 in 7 barrel with 5,000 rounds through it, there is notably more wear on the first 6 to 8" than there is on a comparable 1 in 12 barrel. A higher twist rate also imparts more torque on the gun when it's fired. Equal & opposite reaction.
Spin the bullet one direction, the rifle wants to twist the other direction. Most average guys would never notice that but I am a thin woman. I notice weight & recoil more & I totally geek out on guns. I am the one that will sit there filming the recoil impulse, swap out buffer weights & springs & index the muzzle brake until it's tuned to perfection. With all that said, I usually go with 1 in 7. The practical disadvantages are small & they will stabilize any bullet you put into it. 1 in 9 is fine too. They will stabilize most bullets just fine. Long/heavy bullets may start to keyhole at long ranges but few people use their AR that way.?
How The Media Can Print Lies About You
Absence Malice = Media must attempt to contact you for your side of a story about you. If they call, they can include your denial, which implies fairness. If you refuse to speak, they cannot be held liable for things you refuse to correct. If they fail to reach you, they can say they tried.
As a matter of law, the truth of the story is irrelevant. They will claim they have no knowledge that the story was false, therefore they are absent malice. They will claim they have been both reasonable and prudent, therefore they are not negligent, so they can say whatever they want and you can't sue.
