Feel Like Makin Love – USP 213

In 1975,  Bad Company had a hit song called Feel Like Making Love.  I wasn’t into the group back then.  I just found them now to be honest and remembered I had heard it before.  It’s funny how your taste changes.

The song has more meaning for me now because it’s not really about sex but the depth of love.  Now I am not just saying that because I am old and that is all I got either.  I still got it, thank you very much!  I dedicate Bones Hooks’ rendition of the song to my wife that he is going to do for us this week.

USP 213

Zombie Strike starts a new arc with chapter 8 of episode 76.

While the government was considering the ramifications of a shut down I made plans to visit my son at college.  This fatherhood thing is cool.  I get to share my knowledge and experiences amassed through making a boatload of mistakes to my son so he won’t have to duplicate my pains.  It’s good because he listens, loves and appreciates me.

The government proved to be bluffing, and grand standing.  Congress proved to cause more damage than good by it.  I decided to go on.  I packed up my Blackhawk Fire/EMS ops bag for two days and took a train south.  The train (Amtrak) is an interesting mode of transportation.  I have some suggestions for you however if you decide to do it.

You need to know that you will most likely be sitting next to John Q. Public on the train and not have your own space.  He or she will be twice your size or have too much stuff that encroaches on your space to relax.  Make sure you bring a hat and jacket.

After about an hour it gets cooler on the train.  During the summer months that might even be a blessing but right now, it was cold.  Bring a MP3 player, so that you can tune out the conversations, bodily noises and such as you travel.  Don’t forget the power cords for these devices as a long ride will drain the batteries.  There are AC outlets on the train.  If you can really plan for your trip, see if you can get the reserved seating.  It is totally different than coach and maybe called business class.  It is worth the extra $20.

While visiting my son, I learned about an event he attended last week called Action Fest.  It is a new action/stunt movie fan event that takes place in Asheville, NC.  Last year Chuck Norris was the feature.  This year my son’s movie hero, Michael Jai White the star of Spawn, (also in Universal Soldier, Blood and Bone, and Tyler Perry movies).  I hope to present some cool new info about Actionfest.com to you soon.

I have a couple of side notes:

I am now in the process of the ten day waiting period for my Glock 22 lower receiver from Lone Wolf Distributors.  It was sent to my favorite federally licensed dealer in Maryland and now I am going through that long waiting process.

The Glock 22 is a 40 caliber S&W round and my first .40.  I’ll provide the test and evaluation for you as soon as I get it in two weeks.  For some reason, Marylands’ additional prohibition on the rights of gun owners angered me this time.  I am sick of it.

I am really considering moving for the first time.  Lone Wolf has created a stainless slide with a compensator, a tactical sight and this frame called the Timberwolf, has all the accouterments you would want on a Glock.  I can’t wait to assemble it.

Fitness:  After riding with a train full of candidates for the next Biggest Loser show, I am reminded to get back in the gym.  You local gym/fitness center has probably less people in it now.  You won’t have to wait for a treadmill now so join me in doing at least thirty minutes of cardio plus, three times a week.

Beat Box

Parents all over moan and roll their eyes, wondering where they went wrong when their child utters these words, “I am going to be a rapper.” They wouldn’t if you didn’t give up your education, didn’t celebrate idiots and embrace the drug culture. Consider this…

If you are a rapper to be, a spitter of prose or call yourself a lyricist may I suggest you try harder. If your music contains the words “Nigga” or some derivative, “F@ck” or “Btch” it is a fail. It is weak. Profanity is as appealing as vanity. If you want to last or succeed tell a story.

Use your gift to be clever and make a point. Intelligence is still sexy. Words can be manipulated, articulated and simply stated to do a variety of things. Do something.


I attended a 16th century play the day called “the Heir Apparent”. It was a comedic play that rhymed. It was updated, and translated from French into English and still was funny. Every part and every act was a rap without the music. This thing, as corny as it was, has survived longer than your latest YouTube attempt. You have the skills, just not the exposure to what can be done with your gift.

I think I am a good judge of what is good and what crap is. I have been around since the creation of Hip Hop. I love music. If you do, you’ll work harder at making what you do last. It is my prayer that the Lord save me from another young brother with a mix tape and no message.

Speaking of spitting, here is a guy making a living doing Beat Box…

The Book They Didn’t Know What To Do With

Get your autographed copy of the book that launched my career as a pro-gun activist known internationally as the Black Man With A Gun. Not since Robert F. Williams wrote “Negroes With Guns” in 1968 has anybody tried anything like this.


I almost got kicked out of a pulpit as a young minister when it was published. Oprah’s book club said they didn’t want to promote it. A former African American book store in Maryland wouldn’t carry it (it subsequently has gone out of business).

I have tried everything. My mother has sold it to her friends at her job. (She was so proud.) This book has been reviewed by the National Rifle Association magazine, the American Rifleman, they have been sold by the Second Amendment Foundation and Gun Owners of America. They are on Amazon.com.

I even gave a free copy to Rev. Al Sharpton after being on his show. A friend had me send one recently to the Chicago police superintendent after a crazy remark he made confusing the Black Codes and gun rights.

You can get yours here and help me keep this site and all that I do going.

It’s a timeless, easy to read primer on gun ownership, the history of gun control, insights and suggestions for handling the controversial subject of guns from a former federal firearms instructor, US Marine veteran, and one of the most audacious gun activist of color.

The book will be sent in a priority mail envelope via the US Postal service. Originally the book sold for $16.95 and is still available on Amazon.Com. (although it still comes from me)

You can get your signed for only $5 plus the USP shipping of $4.95 per copy.…

That’s a Lie!

This week on the Urban Shooter Podcast, I will interview a polygrapher.  Have you ever taken a lie detector test?  What did you think?  Did you pass?  It’s one of the most controversial subjects for people in our US criminal justice system  and Executive branch of government.


Source: BBC News

A polygraph also known as the lie detector measures and records several physiological while the subject being tested is asked and answers a series of psychological questions. The belief is that deceptive answers will produce physiological responses that can be differentiated from those associated with non-deceptive answers.

I got a chance to talk to a good friend and one of the most regarded in the industry, Dr. Craig T. Johnson  of CJ&Associates on episode 250.

If you have any questions you’d like to ask about polygraphs, feel free to email them to me and I will pass them on for his reply to you.…
