But enough of that. I'm told that one of the purposes of blogs is to direct readers to other sources of information. So I would like to commend to you Jeff Cooper's Commentaries, a collection of thoughts on military affairs, history, hunting, firearms and ammunition, the English language, and American culture. You can read the commentaries by clicking here. For those of you who live in outer darkness and have not heard of Colonel Cooper, he is a former Marine, a gun writer for nigh unto 50 years, one of the Main Thinkers on the subject of combat handgunning and rifle marksmanship, and an elegant and always-interesting writer.
