I only wish I could write like that! Because of his article I will forever remember April 19th along with 9/11, December 7, 1941 among so many other dates our country should remember every year. We owe everything that is this country to those brave men and all the brave men (and women) who have followed since. It doesn’t take a genius to determine the events that started our Revolution that day are remarkably similar to the course our government is now taking. We as a people are going to have to stand up to elected officials who feel they no longer need to listen to “we the people” now that they are in office because they know better than we what is best for us. Bob Dangler Hastings, Nebraska are talking about. I tend to read articles on basics, on what’s new, etc., and like the campfire stories, and reading about what our soldiers are doing. I think Americans need to know what is going on in Afghanistan. Some may think because the war is so far away it has no meaning for us, but the fact is, it is over there to keep it from being right here, in our lap (give Bush some credit). Thanks for a great magazine.

Anyone who goes on national television and says they believe you should be able to own and shoot guns, just not be able to take them home is not a supporter of our Second Amendment rights. If the police or any other government controlled organization controls access to our guns they, in effect, control us and our ability to exercise our rights. If you believe the Federal government will pass out firearms to the American public when that government is doing something “the people” do not agree with you are sadly and disappointingly mistaken. Take a look at New Orleans during and immediately after Katrina. Firearms were seized from law-abiding citizens for so called public safety. That doesn’t sound like they were willing to let people have their guns during an emergency. The Second Amendment is our most important right in my opinion. Without it, all other rights are null and void if the government so chooses. I believe Mr. Wolf has missed the point on this one. Encouraging people to shoot is admirable and as gun owners we should support anyone who does. However, supporting someone who is actively supporting gun control just because she likes to shoot is like supporting someone who supports censorship just because she can carry on an interesting conversation. Ryan Sommerfeld via e-mail Dueling Trees After reading Duke’s Montana Musings in April’s issue, I’d like to relate a personal experience with dueling trees. I picked up my first tree at a gun show. It was the same as the ones in the pictures, with the rectangular plates. On one occasion I was shooting from my 20-yard line with a .45 ACP. One plate had rotated only 90 degrees and a bullet caught the inside edge of the plate. A piece of the bullet was thrown back at me and caught me in the forehead right between the eyes. And yes, I could see it coming. I replaced the rectangular plates with round plates and haven’t had any problems since. I also came up with a game for dueling trees. I paint the plates different colors and have a partner shout out a color of the plate to be shot. It adds a bit more challenge and fun.
