Howdy everyone, this is my first post on here and I was looking for some insight. Are any of you firearms instructors or know of anyone who is one as a career? I did some serious thinking about where…Continue
"I think I get it. It's that if you are a man and genuine, you will often be labeled in ways that are not honest, that is, that are BS. (I had a hard time parsing this myself.)
I don't think he's calling us to realize that…"
"I don't get your meaning.
If the label is accurate then its accurate: own it then change or live with it. If not accurate, why sweat it? Just give the labeler the finger and move on. Life is far to short to give a damn about petty crap like…"
"The more I think about it, the more I'm convinced Richard is on to the right answer. Courage is action in the face of fear. Integrity is acting like the man you want to be. Courage-of-conviction is acting in accordance with…"
"One word? I will go with genuine.
A man who is genuine is humbly aware of what knows and what he doesn't know and is comfortable with his skill and expertise.
Such a man knows the value of a honest day's work and steps up.
"Not sure why it's so difficult to understand that attributes can be masculine or feminine even when undertaken by the opposing sex. Activity is masculine. Introspection is feminine. Competition is masculine. …"

You need only listen to a conversation between a man and his wife about a problem she's encountered. She tends to want to…"
"I have three 10/22's...
First one is a Takedown model, I had the barrel threaded for a suppressor and put some Tech Sights on it. Added sling swivels and a sling, also had Brimstone do their Tier 3 trigger job on it.…"
"I picked up an M1 Garand from CMP last year and it's a fantastic gun. I got the "Special" grade (new stock and barrel) and I love it. I took it to an Appleseed KD shoot last Spring and it ran wonderfully all weekend.
Get one now,…"

""do men have the market cornered on these or do women share these qualities too?"
That's entirely my point. Most of what we believe make a good man also make a good woman. They're attributes of a good person. Very few of the…"
"I guess there are several reasons why the insults get to me. First, I am a very kind person and people have respected me for that so I am not overly use to be insulting in public. The insults are often aimed as who I think I am as a person- a rule…"
"Are you comparing getting molested by a squirrel every day on the way to work with having a coworker throwing insults at you everyday?
This is something that just doesnt have to stand in a normal work enviroment. If someone of your staff comes to…"
"HaHaHa, the squirrel visualization is hilarious. I have already had first a heart to heart and then the telling of enough. Still doesn't stop and I don't feel confident in my own social prowess to insult my coworker back. Yes, the insults…"

"You've already explained a lot of reasons why you shouldn't take it personally. Do you honestly care what this person thinks about you? Obviously I don't know the nature of the insults, but are they actually hurtful? or is it more the…"
