The Gun You Have Is Enough

If you know what to do with it.

If you don’t know what to do, no gun in the world will be enough.

Consider this shot of Michael Bane I took last week whilst we were enjoying a root beer (or two…) at a restaurant in New River.


Yes, it’s possible to take a gun-related photo of booze with your iPhone that doesn’t suck. Who knew?

It was shot, processed and distributed on an iPhone, not a big pro camera and laptop. It wasn’t tools that made the shot, what made the shot was what I saw and how I dealt with it.

Making a connection?

No amount of equipment can make up for a lack of talent. Rob Leatham WILL out-shoot me even if I have the most whiz-bang Open Gun and he’s shooting a dead-stock 1911. A crook who gets the drop on me will be a lot tougher to deal with than a crook that I spot setting up to do bad stuff.

We didn’t rise to the top of the food chain because of a slight improvement in the shape of a gazelle’s femur, we got here because one of our ancestors was tired of being Lion Chow and decided to do something about it.
