Описание: "Here, point and shoot." These words from his father propelled Buz Fawcett's shooting success as a child, gaining him a number of High Gun awards at local trap clubs by the time he was fourteen. Because of his success, his father awarded him his grandfather's Model 1912 Winchester, which he mastered, even though it "kicked the whey" out of him. However, his amazing shotgunning abilities as a kid didn't follow him into adulthood. Fawcett entered into what he calls his "Dark Ages" of shooting after accepting an associate editor position at Sports Afield in New York City, where he had to read and edit what other gunmen were writing about shooting techniques. Eventually, he took a position as editor of Guns & Ammo magazine, located in California. He soon found himself in a position where he could shoot as much as he liked. After a number of years and extensive research into shotgun shooting methods, Fawcett rediscovered his talents through a technique called Instinctive Shooting. This research and a lot of practice finally led to teaching a workshop on instinctive shooting to help others become adept at this miraculous point and shoot method. Instinctive Shooting is Fawcett's guide for other gunmen, describing exactly how and what needs to be done to achieve the ultimate shooting instincts. Practical and hands-on, the book covers such topics as determining your dominant eye, achieving proper shotgun fit, how to correct point and shoot, selecting equipment, practice regimens, mounting, and much more.

Описание: From merchantman to man-of-war William Richardson was always certain he would be a seaman. His father and all his brothers were mariners so it was not unusual that he should go to sea in his turn. By the last part of the eighteenth century Richardson was an accomplished and experienced young mariner who had made steady progress in promotion and who had travelled sea-routes across the globe, including time served in the notorious slave trade. These were the days of the press gangs and many a merchant seamen was forcefully taken into the ranks of the Royal Navy. Richardson was no exception and, perhaps peculiarly, he accepted his fate with good humour. While under the ensign he joined Sir Ralph Abercromby's expedition to St. Lucia and served throughout the West Indies aboard HMS Prompte and HMS Tromp. War with Napoleonic France saw Richardson, now a master gunner, aboard HMS Caesar. Those interested in the wars of the 'Age of Sail' will find much to interest them in this book, as the author richly describes his experiences among the crew of a British man-of-war in action in the Channel, the Eastern Atlantic and the Mediterranean. An excellent and rare account of Nelson's navy from the pen of an ordinary seaman. Recommended.

Описание: Each book in the True Horse Stories focuses on a contemporary horse from a different part of the world, and each animal is, in his or her own way, a hero. PBJ Decks Smokin Gun (Gunner) is an American Paint Horse, one of the many of Heather Lott Goodwin's herd, and a valuable show animal that won the World Championship Paint Horse title. When Hurricane Katrina passed over the Goodwin property, it took with it the fences, the cattle, and several horses. Heather and her family lived in their horse trailer for six weeks and considered themselves lucky to have safe, comfortable shelter. After the storm, they searched for the animals and recovered many of them. But three months passed before they located Gunner, a hundred miles away. They were told he was in terrible shape and should be put down. Nevertheless, Heather drove on washed-out roads to bring him home, starving, dehydrated, and blind in one eye. With the help of a vet and her mother, she nursed him back to health. Amazingly, nine months later, he was well enough to compete again in the World Championship Paint Horse Show. Gunner's story is a testament to love and to determination.

Описание: Unique first-hand account of the Falkland s War published to coincide with the 35th anniversary of the conflict
Satan has strategies that he has used for millennia, yet many of us don't always see him at work. He works behind the scenes, and he likes to do all he can to destroy God's original designs. Every day, he engages us in spiritual warfare-whether we realize it or not-yet Christ promised us a resounding victory.
Son of a Gunner examines scripture to uncover the enemy's schemes, and it exposes the tactics he still uses in contemporary life. Author P. David Christensen sheds light on Satan's manipulations and how they look in modern-day life, explaining how we can put our ultimate trust in God and find the courage in faith to stand up to the advances of the enemy. And by finding parallels in the Bible, we can learn from these biblical examples, identify the satanic strongholds in our lives, and fight the good fight by putting personal trust in Jesus Christ, our champion.
Victory is available in Christ alone. Satan does his best to blind us to this truth, using all his tactics and deceptions to build his strongholds of sin. The time is now join Christ in the fight, so grab your sword and join the battle.
