Comparison of Ruger LC9sPro and S&W Shield

Conceal Carry

When you decide to carry a firearm along with your conceal carry permit you will have lots of choices of which gun to carry.  As we own both of these guns, and like them both for different reasons, we will share with you our thoughts, as well as thoughts of the following video – FirearmPatriot – to give you some food for thought.

If nothing else you can enjoy the wonderful drawl of this fellers speech.

Because my family is so new to owning and managing guns I have found it very interesting that people have such strong opinions as to what is a good gun vs. what is a bad gun.  My wife, daughters, sons and I all have differing opinions as to what we like and why.  So while watching any review of a gun take that into strong consideration and watch more for acquiring knowledge as to the features each gun does or does not have.  Once you begin to fire some different brands and styles you will come to understand what works for you.  Everybody is different.

Bottom line.  The best gun to carry for your protection is the one you have on you.  Not having a firearm when the situation calls for it can be the difference between life and death.  I plan to do everything in my power to fulfill that which God has created me for and not allow some misdirected thug cut His plan short by taking my, or one of my family members, lives.

Advice Worth Ignoring

I can’t tell you, because you won’t listen, how many times I have received advice on how to raise my children.  Why don’t we listen?

Well, sometimes it is better to ignore advice.

A quick, funny video which illustrates my point.

Parents – take it easy on yourself and become a better parent.

Here are some great tools:

The Big Game

Sports is like religion

How will you play the big game?  How you play will determine the end result.  I hope your game plan is well prepared and your ready for a large battle.

As I come across great videos I pass them along because great ideas need to be shared regardless of who created them.

In this case it comes from ‘The Vortex’.  The interweaving of sports and religion has been done plenty of times but this one seems to hit it on the head quite well.  Give it a listen and see if your ready for the Big Game.

Why a gun in our home?

Criminals don't care about your politics

As I have decided to dedicate a page of our website to ‘Protection…‘  I ran across an article that shows one of the main reasons for our (my wife and I) decision to become better acquainted with firearms.  No longer will I live with the misinformed fear of a firearm.

Can you read the story without bias as to where it originated?  The facts are plain and simple here.  Intruder with intent of harm – woman with gun – intruder meets God.  Although this woman will now live with potentially elevated stress due to her assailants actions that day at least she was not raped and/or killed and robbed.  Our prayers are with her.

How will you protects yourself without a weapon?

New Content – This is how we live

We have been cautious for far too long when it comes to our website.   No longer.  2016 brought about many changes for our family and we have subsequently made many changes because of it.  Now it is time for our site to more accurately reflect our current day position on life and family.  We are throwing many of the rules out the window with one HUGE exception.

 Truth.

We will call it as we see it and share with you – and hopefully you will share with us – where we are today and why we place importance on the things we have chosen.

Join us and help us grow to be better, loving, responsible parents and citizens.

Several new pages with new content being created weekly:

Calm Down

Protect Your Family & Yourself

Yeah, I’m just fine – No stress here – So just shut up!

Wow, take a minute to chill

Many of us refuse to realize that we are indeed a bit stressed or anxious.  To tell ourselves this is to admit that we may not be as perfect as we would like to think we are.  Take 5 minutes to analyze yourself and be perfectly honest with yourself.  You may find that there is room for more peace in your life.

S.M.A.R.T. Goals For 2017

Creativity with your baking

Leftover beets? Make cupcakes, of course!

I’m not really sure why I picked up beets at the grocery–no one in our house really likes them, and I don’t know how to cook them. Makes sense, right?

Naomi had been traumatized by the use of beet juice to color Valentine’s Day cookies many years ago (turns out that’s totally legit, but I didn’t know it then), so I haven’t really tried any recipes with them since them. A few months ago, I started chopping them up and putting them in smoothies, but the smoothie rather tastes a bit like dirt if you’re not careful.

What Are You Thinking, Target?

Inclusion of a few or exclusion of many?

In an effort to provide inclusion to all members of the human race, the mega retailer Target has decided to make all bathrooms available for use for anyone who feels like using either one. In theory, if a man feels like he is a woman that day, he should saunter on in to the ladies’ restroom.

And on the flip side of the coin, women who feel masculine are free to use the men’s room. I suppose they’ll use female urination devices (look it up) to pee in the urinals. We can only imagine how men will feel about peeing in front of a woman.

“We welcome transgender team members and guests to use the restroom or fitting room facility that corresponds with their gender identity,” the retailer said in a statement. “Everyone deserves to feel like they belong. And you’ll always be accepted, respected and welcomed at Target.”

A world in which everyone belongs is great. We should all love each other indeed, and of course should never hurt anyone’s feelings.
