I am a former navy small arms marksmanship instructor (0812) and self-defense instructor. Happy to be here and I am willing to help in anyway I can.

You have any questions or anything for me, Alex? Haven't heard from you since you went to check out the Utility Manual. Need anything?

I have to pick and choose my battles these days, as my health requires. I have to concentrate on the reporters, filmmakers, producers, and flacks who send me frequently-redundant requests for information, interviews, and comments. In fact, I'm doing an interview with a couple of reporters from the Harvard Crimson this afternoon. I think I've given at least two others this week, and I still have to post something on the Facebook page I was asked to post (I was checking out the page of the person requesting that.)

If anyone needs information or other ammo for such discussions, drop me an email or PM and we'll chat.

Oleg is an old friend of ours. I've never met the man, more's the pity, but a number of our more Southerly members have. Erin Palette, who runs Blazing Sword, is a close friend of Oleg's, and has done a fair bit of shooting with him. Lucky broad! ;)

Back when I was gafiated from the organization, after my car accident that broke my neck and sidelined me, the Pink Pistols had gone into a bit of a decline. People were considering it defunct, because nothing had been changed on their site in years, and even the links on the site were breaking. Oleg called me up out of the blue and read me the riot act, basically telling me that I couldn't let it die, and was I going to GODDAMN DO SOMETHING?

So I did something. I checked out the site, saw how broken it was, did a Google search to see if those I put in charge were doing anything, and they weren't. So I contacted The Founder, Doug Krick, and said I'd get it back on track, but I wanted the keys. I wanted to be the Top Dog, Head Cheese, Numero Uno. I wanted to RUN it. He gladly handed me those keys, contacted the current webmistress, and she gave me the domain and what files she had. I moved it to my own webhost (I run about a dozen domains of varying activity levels), and took the title "First Speaker", which I shamelessly stole from both Larry Niven's and Sharon Lee/Steven Miller's science fiction books. (Niven's Belters had a political leader called the First Speaker, "Lit" Shaeffer being one of the more noteworthy, while in Lee & Miller's "Liaden" books, the First Speaker is the one just below the Delm of a Clan. Since nobody would have understood "Delm" in this context, I used the next best thing.)

So yes, Oleg Volk is a wonderful human being, and his photography has graced many of our posters and such for the past 17 years -- and I credit him with getting me off my tocks and back into the game, albeit in an administrative role rather than running a chapter these days.

You might want to check out the Seattle or Portland pages. I know PDX has a Yahoo Group mailing list (I'm on it), but Seattle's been under new management lately and might not have anything set up.

We don't have anything like the sheer volume of Farcebook (and there was much rejoicing) so it might be slim pickin's here for posts. But we have pretty tight controls on spammers and the like here.

as an IDPA member, I regularly get emails from them, titled "The Tactical Brief", and the emails contain links to relevant stories about shooting and shooting sports.

today, the email contained a link to the following story:

story mentions Nicki Stallard part way down.

it's a good read.

also included was  a link to a short story about the Mozambique Drill, aka the Failure Drill.  5-10 yards, just 3 shots.  easy to set up and easy to do, not too many rounds.  if you haven't tried it lately, try it next time you hit the range.

Hi everyone! Recently received my CC license in December. I've been going to the range every weekend, and would be happy to have someone join me! For now, I only have a Ruger LC9S 9mm.
Look forward to being a member of this group.

What do you think of his work?  He's been doing pro-LGBT gun related photography for ages, but I haven't seen his artwork mentioned here.
