Most men in the III
Community are proficient with handguns. Most
III men have assembled an assortment of handguns to
protect the family when SHTF scenarios come to pass.
Most III families have this issue squared away.
For those new to the
III Community and less advanced in training and
preparations, there are a few considerations that
must be given thought before buying a small arsenal
for home and family defense. The issue of
which caliber is best is eternal, and can be quite
confusing if one is new or relatively new to the
world of handguns.
Here is the bottom
line regarding handgun caliber selection: Arm
yourself and your family with as much pistol as can
be reliably and consistently handled by the least
among you, scoring hits on a pie plate at about
10 yards. A pie plate is roughly the diameter
of a mans head. Most firefights with handguns
will be engaged at about 7 yards and in low light
A man with a .22LR in
his braincase is just as dead as the guy hit with a
.45 ACP or 9mm. Forget the silliness of
stopping power debates, and immediately put the
Hollywood effects of handgun damage out of your
mind. Human beings do not launch rearward off
their feet when hit by any handgun round. He
may fall backward or stumble dramatically - but
basic physics promises that he will not fly backward
through a plate glass window because of a .45 ACP
center mass double-tap.
Teaching your family
to shoot is important. How you teach
them is more important. You do not teach your
110 pound wife to handle a handgun by putting a .45
ACP in her hands on day one. The best training
method is to start small. Buy an AirSoft
pellet pistol to teach the basics of handling and
sight alignment. Next, move to a .22LR so that
the first experiences on the range are not tainted
by flinch-inducing recoil. Be sure to teach
careful, aimed fire and also include basic
double-taps in the training at this stage.
Once your student is
consistently double-tapping the pie plate freehand
with the .22LR, move to a light center fire round,
then to the 9mm. If you are training your
family up to the .45 ACP, be patient. If you
move too quickly and put a 1911 boomer in a new
shooters hands before they are ready, you invite bad
habits, fear, and in a crisis, hesitancy.
Once your family is
double-tapping the pie plate with the caliber of
choice, go back to the .22LR and begin introducing
different firing positions and angles of attack.
You can train your family to basic proficiency in as
little as a week using this method, if you are on a
hurried timeline. But if you stretch it out
over a few weeks or a month your results will likely
be improved. You may find that the Little Miss
is the best shot in the house.
Pie plates = head
shots. Body armor is an obstacle.
Remember, there are only 3 targets that ensure an
immediate end of forward motion to an advancing
enemy: Brain, spine, femur. A brain shot will
turn the lights off 99 out of 100 times, allowing
you to engage the next target.
Short of an immediate
brain kill, you must incapacitate the physiology.
Just as in unarmed combat, you must break the body
of the enemy so the threat is minimized or
eliminated. Break an arm and punching is out
of the equation. Scramble a knee and he won't
A spine shot will
always result in an enemy who drops immediately.
But, depending on where he is hit, he may well still
be able to pull a trigger. The same obtains
with a femur that gets busted by a bullet. The
leg will not work, and the enemy will go
down. But he can still pull his trigger, so an
immediate double-tap to the head is a requisite if
you put your target down with a spine or femur shot.
Train for it.
Train your family for it.
Now, we must return
to the caliber discussion from a strategic
perspective. In America the .22LR, 9mm and .45
ACP are the most common pistol loads. This can
become important in a SHTF scenario that becomes
protracted. Once you have used your supply,
you will need more. The odds of coming across
a box of .45 ACP is far better than finding a box of
5.7x28mm for an FN.
Next, consider your
family. While you may be able to handle the
.45 ACP, let's assume that your wife simply can't
handle it as well as she can handle a 9mm.
Think tactically for a moment. If you have a
.45 in your nightstand and she has a 9mm, you can
not share ammo or exchange magazines in a firefight.
Consider putting the same pistol in your nightstand
as does she. You do not need to abandon your
.45, just recognize that there are certain
circumstances wherein victory may be more attainable
by strategic thinking about tactical realities.
Do not allow yourself
to implement a weak strategy based on Ego by
clinging to a masculine caliber. Believe me,
if your wife can hit that pie plate with a Ruger MK
III consistently, but she has recoil issues with a
9mm, your family is better off with your wife
holding the Ruger.
Hitting the target is
far more important than missing with a macho
comes a time when civility is no longer appropriate
as the only option on the table. Dare we not offend the
sensibilities of Liberals, Socialists, and Communists in our
midst who are ruining and destroying our republic? Are we
to cower and sheepishly genuflect when we are scolded for
the tone or choice of our words in the face of ruin,
poverty, tyranny, and death?!
we so frightened of chastisement from insignificant men and
women of the political Left with stained and darkened souls
that we turn from our duties of Patriotism and shun our
sacred obligation to support and defend the Constitution of
the United States of America? We ask you, is not our
republic worth the risk of being castigated? Is the soul of
our mighty nation no longer worthy of our fortunes, our
lives, and our Sacred Honor? Have we lost so much of our
heritage, our courage, our mettle, and grit that we will
stand idly by and permit the foolish and the stupid, who
work hand-in-hand with evil people in our nation, that we
will permit them to send us into eternal slavery and tyranny
as the world has never before witnessed?
Excerpt: You are a
fool if you do not believe that elements of the Left would
use force, if they could, to compel you to comply with many
of their edicts. In drafting healthcare reform, they use
the threat of financial fines, felony conviction and
prison if you refuse to buy health insurance!
How is that not only a
degree or two removed from a pistol to the head? We are
undeniably heading toward the same tyrannies known to
Russians, Germans, and the Chinese. It starts with
Liberalism, advances to Socialism, and ends with Fascism,
Communism, or some other tyranny…and death.
We have a
culture of people whose first response to a physical threat
is to dial 911, or worse, a lawyer. We have a nation of
people who will dump hot coffee on themselves, then sue the
restaurant – and win! We have a nation of educators
who suspend children for drawing a picture of a handgun or
for bringing a Boy Scout knife-and-fork kit to show and
We have a nation of
people so removed from the food chain that many would starve
to death if the local supermarket closed. We have a nation
of people who cannot truly grasp the hardships faced by most
of the people in the world every day, and as a result we
have a nation of people who have lost fundamental common
Excerpt: The Bill
of Rights articulates the natural rights of man, rights that
are not bestowed by government, but rights that are innately
ours as human beings. These rights may not be taken from
us. These rights were written in plain language so that no
clever interpretation and manipulation of the intent was
possible. These rights may not be restricted, narrowed, or
infringed. Any attempt to do so is a violation of the
relationship between Man and Creator.
restriction, infringement, and clever interpretation imposed
upon us in the years since our Constitution was ratified is
simply a violation of our natural rights.
We hold that every
violation of the Constitution and Bill of Rights by those in
Government is an act of Treason, as these violations are
unjust, undermining the fundamental foundations of our
republic, breaking the pact between citizen and government,
and desecrating the relationship between Man and Creator.
Any man or woman who enforces these unconstitutional laws on
behalf of government is a treasonous soul and an enemy of
Liberty and humanity.

political leaders are only the face of the problem
confronting America today. The underlying cancer
eating the American Soul is Liberalism. But for your
Liberal neighbors, Liberal politicians would never be
elected to office.
It is not
sufficient to simply defeat Liberal politicians at the
polls. Liberalism must be defeated in our society and
Liberals must be marginalized, or this disease will kill the
patriotic business owner should immediately fire every
Liberal on staff and hire an employee who respects the
nation and our Constitution. Why should any business
owner suffer an employee who will simply vote for
politicians who further ruin the company?!
Liberals in your community must be ostracized and denied
entry into your social circle. These stupid people
are responsible for the insanity that affects everything
from your property taxes to the curriculum taught to your
children. Why would you break bread with them, when
they are the reason your bread costs too much? Why
would any parent permit them access to their children, when
they are responsible for ruining your child's future?

government employees at the Local, State, and Federal levels
who support federal Healthcare Reform, the Assault Weapons
Ban, TARP, Stimulus I, Free Trade Agreements, PATRIOT Act,
the new “Jobs” bill, or a host of other such Federal
programs or initiatives, are guilty of Treason against the
United States of America.
Secondly, businesses, multi-national corporations and
special interest groups that support Liberal politicians
and/or Liberal programs, Cap & Trade, Global Warming

Finally, we will demonstrate that those private Citizens who

equally guilty of Treason by knowingly lending material aid
