So, Robert Kuntz over at Suburban Sheepdog shows how Col. Cooper’s legacy is not limited to just when your booker-hook pulls the bang-switch. To be fair I found the link through Miguel with this post.
Something that has been drilled into me by countless hours on the internets, books, some anime, instructors, and plain common sense. So it got me to thinking.
If we have something like Sexual Education classes somewhat mandatory, Driver’s Education as well, and even Home Economics, Personal Finance (wait who am I kidding, I was the only kid in high school to take accounting and business/business management who didn’t want to be a CPA or something along those lines), and the like. Why not firearms safety? Why not just take the NRA’s safety course and give it to kids?
I don’t exactly employ Col. Cooper’s threat levels everyday, but I know at least to employ his four rules every time I come across a gun. Barring Nerf Guns and the like, I usually practice these rules. Yes even with my airsoft guns (because muzzling yourself with a gas powered airsoft pistol means if it goes off, it hurts like a bugger), and I strive to inform and teach my other airsoft minded cousins. I dunno, the two posts got me to thinking, and it seems rather…well bland and unoriginal and droning on, but still.
Also, I’m intrigued with his book, and will probably go grab it once the funds roll in.

Edit: Sir, if you are reading this. I wished I lived in S. Florida for the main reason for wanting to join a IDPA club. Dunno if any still exist up here in N. VA.
