94. Thanks - it was my fault in that I did indeed gloss over it.
I understand it better when you frame it in a martial arts aspect. I have never participated in that sport. It is my understanding that individuals who are practicing martial arts are also taught an inner-discipline as well? There are life lessons to be learned along with the physical aspect of the martial arts?
I only wish the 'zen-like' quality would also be transferred to those participating within the gun culture.
It is my feeling that you are a rare animal in the gun world.
Do you use live ammunition or blanks? How would you feel if you were required (if live ammuntion is used) to be able to purchase such ammunition ONLY at the gun range and make the sales of ammunition illegal? Would you feel uneasy at not being able to have a loaded gun in the home?

I have to do some long and hard thinking regarding those who hunt and how they can obtain ammunition but not be able to stockpile such or have loaded guns at home. This is a most difficult discussion - but I feel that the balance of power still resides on the side of public safety.
