Range Quote of the Day

Be extremely subtle, even to the point of formlessness.
Be extremely mysterious, even to the point of soundlessness.
Thereby you can be the director of the opponent's fate.
Sun Tzu - The Art of War

    You don' wanna mess wit' him.

  4. While I appreciate the subtleties that Mr. Tzu is espousing, subtle is just not me. I only have one principle of warfare. OVERKILL!

  5. Suppressed GSG in .22? Even more fate-not-directing!
    This quote works for me:
    When we are able to attack, we must seem unable; when using our forces, we must appear inactive; when we are near, we must make the enemy believe we are far away; when far away, we must make him believe we are near.

I started this blog so the child I gave up for adoption could get to know me, and in turn, her children, as well as share stories for a family that lives too far away.

This is for them. I share it, but it is ultimately a gift to my family. Links here should be work friendly, kind and safe for kids. If they are not, please let me know.

You're welcome to post what you wish on your blog - but even if I like you, it doesn't mean I want my family to read it.
