    Great Issue........

    ...... But, and I feel strange doing this, I was disappointed. The History Corner seemed a little misleading and inaccurate to me.

    The article would have you think there wasn't much on the way of flintlocks before 1800, and they were in common use into the 1890's.

    Actually flintlocks were in use from the early 1700's, the first actually making their appearance in the Americas in the late 1600's from Germany. The "Golden Age" of the flintlock was probably from about 1750 till the 1830-40s when the percussion era started. Unfortunately many great flintlocks were converted to percussion, ruining some very beautiful weapons.

    Muskets were loaded using "a paper package" called a cartridge by the military. This was made possible because most of the military muskets had a common sized ball.

    Most rifles, pistols, and some civilian smooth bores were loaded using a powder horn of some type, and a powder measure. This prevented over charging the rifle. (Only Disney's Davy Crockett pours powder from his horn into the barrel! )

    The rifles also used a greased, patched ball that fit very tightly into the barrel. This was a disadvantage making the rifle take longer to reload than the musket, but it did increase the accuracy. Muskets were accurate to about 50-100 yards, rifles could make shots at 200+ yards.

    I could go on, but I think I'll shut up now!

    I see (in another thread) that Tim was worrying about the covers.
    This issue's cover is great. This woman on the cover... take a look at her. She is attractive, with that sly Mona Lisa smile... she isnt wearing flannel and a trucker hat with buck teeth. She is well dressed, looks smart... like she probably has a Degree or two under her gunbelt.
    If this keeps up, we just might succeed in changing the gun owner stereotype.

    Bravo, Tim!

    I think you're right George - the cover portays a good image - I also had a slight feeling here of Gillian Anderson - hint of FBI but - daresay too you may be right about the degree or two.

    This is one savvy lady - with class.

    Yes and it was excellent. Several very good articles in this issue. I thought Mark Walters really did a superb job of articulating why we all carry. It's the kind of article you can show to those who ask why you carry a gun. Also, another vote for the cover.

    Thanks FLM

    for the kind remarks regarding my column this issue. I hope you enjoy my future articles as well as my goal is to resonate with "ordinary" folks. That of course, would require my definition of an "ordinary guy". (I'll borrow the rest of my comments from a post I made on another forum recently...Don't be surprised to see these words in a future column!)

    I personally believe that most "ordinary" folks do not attend the Frontsight Academies or take the courses offered by Gabe Suarez, nor do they train near as often as they should. I also believe most ordinary folks don't attend IDPA matches on the weekends as time or money just doesn't permit.

    Most ordinary folks aren't on these boards or others like them, in fact I put everybody who shoots IDPA, takes the classes etc. in the EXTRAordinary category, hence why I write the column. The "ordinary guy" are those folks who have their CCW, may not carry all the time, don't train as much as they should or train at all. "The Ordinary Guy is written to resonate with those folks and is designed to remind them to train, let them know they're not alone and support the decision they have made to carry a concealed weapon as well as encourage them to carry regularly letting them know they aren't freaks..In other words, they aren't alone in their decision to carry a sidearm whether they currently do or may be considering it.

    You'll never see me discuss fighting tactics, balistics, etc. as I'm simply not qualified and I'll leave that up to the Gabe's of the world. I will however, do my best to make the ordinary folks out there feel comfortable in their decision to arm themselves and encourage them to become EXTRAordinary.

    The column is new, the mag is new and I would encourage everyone to subscribe and offer up to the publisher their ideas. He will listen and is doing everything he can to make the magazine a success. This is a great publication that fully supports the decision we have all made and, as I'm sure you'll agree, Tim and his staff have done an excellent job. Mark

    Good work, Mark, I loved the "Ordinary Guy" column. I expect that many of us here would fit your "ordinary guy" description, me included. I keep planning on taking more classes but just never seem to get around to it because I have too many irons in the fire, yet. Not to mention the forum.

    Keep up the good work!

    Thanks to all for the kind words about the last issue. I just wish I could spend more time on this forum to chat and get to know more of you. The mystery lady on the cover is none other than my bride of 11 years! Don't mess with her. The next issue goes to the printer next week and it is gonna be another good one.

    We would like to see you more as well, Tim. BUT.... you have a magazine to run and we all want to see that at well!

    Maybe since your wife has made her debut on the cover you should have her write for the magazine. Thanks to CCM my wife is starting to see that carrying concealed is not just a "guy thing". I think a lot of women think that when carrying is viewed casually. Tell your wife by simply having her picture on the cover she has helped women look at concealed carry a little closer. Mine did, anyway. Keep up the good work; all of you!

    April issue

    My wife has a thing about kids and guns. She is not anti-gun. She was upset about the picture on page 7 at the upper right corner. To someone who knows what is going on here the picture is ok. But I can see how this picture would look to the untrained eye or to an anti-gun person. "Kids playing with guns!" So when printing pictures in a public forum, think about how it looks to the other side!

    Hey Cruiser,

    First, welcome aboard.

    Second, while on many forums the tone of your comment would be considered mild, the folks that hang out here are pretty civil. Do you think you could lighten it up a bit? And while you're at it, maybe you should proof your own posts.

    Third, I looked at the picture in question. I think it is a matter of perspective. My take on it is that his finger tip is resting on the frame about where the top of the trigger guard meets the bottom of the frame. But...we all see different things. Maybe we should throw the red flag and get a "reverse angle re-play" from the officials.

    Disclaimer: I'm not a moderator, and I don't work for the magazine. Just thought I'd offer another perspective.

    Cruiser - your points have merit and are worthy of discussion but - pity you had to come over as quite so ascerbic! We hope to be all on the same page here even if we have disagreements but ........
