All in the Family featured the curmudgeonly Archie Bunker. Archie was television’s most famous grouch, blunt, blustering, straightforward and untouched by the PC crowd. He was the archetype of the conservative male. Michael desprately tried to reeducate him, but he persisted in his breviloquence.

Looking back at the last 40 years, we realize: ARCHIE WAS RIGHT!



It's late Thursday night.  I just got in from work.  In a couple of hours I'll be packing up to head up north to work the Wyoming Tactical Rifle Championship, formerly known as the International Tactical Rifle Championship.   Technically that Wyoming part of the name is a bit of a misnomer too, part of the match is shot in Montana.

Late to bed early to rise, watch guys shoot all day and make up lies.

Well the make up lies part will be harder, since I'm going to be one of the score keeps for this match.

It's too late to join us this year, unless you can make the ranch in 6 hours.  I think it'd be a hoot if the Ilk could manage to field a team or two for next year.


  1. Scopes or iron sights?

    I shot CMP, back in the day when an outstanding high power range was available to me.

    6 hours is out of the question. Maybe next year?

    Scopes. Its a fun little game of sniper golf. Get a teammate and come out.

    Write up a post on what it takes.

    Equipment list, ammo, etc.

    Food? Lodging?

    I will put this on the "wishful thinking" list for next year.

    What is the skill level involved to participate? to participate respectably?
