Airsoft Training Inexpensive And Fun

As ammunition prices have bounced all over the place and the threat/promise of increased firearms and ammunition legislation has increased, I have started doing more and more of my training with airsoft police tactical pistols or trainers. They have allowed me to train with my wife more often than we could if live fire were our only option. As an added benefit, I know that if it becomes illegal or a serious liability to train with firearms in the future, I have a backup plan in place to stay proficient as well as get new shooters up to speed with firearms.

Jailed For Questioning Barack Obama

Some of the more emotional reunions I have ever witnessed occurred at airports. Few can match the joy of wives (and, sometimes, husbands) and children as they welcome a service member returning safely from overseas. This past Saturday, such a reunion took place at Baltimore Washington International Airport. But in this case, the highly decorated veteran wasn’t returning from Iraq or Afghanistan. Instead, he had just been released from military prison at Fort Leavenworth, Kan.

White House Bars Newspaper From Press Pool, Alleges Bias

The White House Press Office snubbed the Boston Herald on Wednesday, denying the paper full access to President Barack Obama’s fundraiser in Boston. The Press Office told the paper via email that press pool reporters are chosen by their ability to “fairly” cover the news. An article on BostonHerald.com discusses the rejection, which came after the paper ran a Mitt Romney opinion piece on the front page — more than a month before the President’s visit.

If It’s On A T-Shirt, It Must Be True

On Wednesday, President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign unveiled T-shirts that mock the Birther movement. A political blog on ABCNews.com described the shirts. They feature Obama’s face and the slogan “Made in the USA” on the front, with a picture of the President’s recently- released long-form birth certificate on the back. One can receive this “limited edition” shirt by donating $25 to Obama’s campaign.
