Semi-retired like Vito Corleone before the heart attack. Consiglieri to J.Kb and AWA. I lived in a Gun Control Paradise: It sucked and got people killed. I do believe that Freedom scares the political elites.

  1. Come on…if you wear eye pro, people might not recognize you in the picture. And if they don’t recognize you, they won’t know how awesomely pro-gun you are. Straight posed PR shot of a dishonest, dishonorable man.

  2. Now, I’m not a photographer and I can’t really claim to have spent much time with clays… but am I wrong or wouldn’t the photographer have to be forward of the firing line to get a shot with this angle?

    No eye protection, minimal ear protection, finger on the trigger, and someone standing down range…? Is Mark Kelly opening a Tactical Operator Ninja Academy?

  3. Now, I will admit, I usually do not wear eye protection at the range.

    But I do still encourage it, and this guy has sunglasses right there on his hat, so he CLEARLY does not have the personality quirks I use as an excuse.(I hate having lenses in front of my eyes. No matter how clear they are, they still put a wall between me and the world around me. Exception being my eyeglasses.)

    1. It is possible to get everyday-use prescription lenses with a decent enough safety rating… plastic composites and whatnot. That’s what I wear just as a matter of course. With clays, where the full-blown eye protection you’d want with a pistol or in an indoor range isn’t quite as necessary I think they’re fine.

      But, then again, I’m not touring nationally to “promote gun safety” and claiming to be an “expert” on the subject.

      1. I use my regular eyeglasses with add on aftermarket side shields. It’s hard to use regular shooting glasses when you’re blind.

        That has to be a staged picture to show how he’s supposedly a friend of the 2A. The astroturf is thick.

      2. Yeah, if I’m teaching people about gun safety, eye and ear protection will definitely be listed. If you aren’t using them, you are the only person put at risk, but it’s a decision you have to be the one to make, and by not mentioning or encouraging it, I would be making that decision for you.
