Gun Tips By: Lloyd

Gun Tips By: Lloyd “Duke” Hodges There is a song from a great production that goes “Getting to know you, getting to know all about you”. I think that also applies to your firearm. The more you know, the less likely you or someone else will suffer an injury or worse. We humans also, under stress, do suffer loss of motor skills that we take for granted and become victims. Firearm skills suffer when not practiced on a regular basis. Connect with a group or someone with similar interests and actively practice. Set some competitive activity, this will aid in building mindset which I believe will firm motor skills. There are products available that will assist in training such as a laser pistol and target which will allow you to maintain skill and can be a family fun time. Find the ad in most gun magazines. I have a Crimson Trace laser on my carry pistol and I use it on the range and also at home. What I do is unload and inspect to see if a round did not eject and proceed to dry fire at different targets at different distances. Yes, it does take some effort to aim and activate the laser however, your motor skills will improve and you can see with the follow through how accurate you will become. I have a laser device that bore sights a long gun and sights adjusted to the red dot at a specific distance. Windage and elevation then becomes the drill when differentiating to another target. Practice will help achieve what shooters learned from necessity over years. What happens is confidence, pride, and ability will increase. Enjoy developing your sport or career needs, you will be glad you did. Oops! I digress. Can you disassemble, reassemble without parts left over, clean your firearm and recognize a malfunction?

The Unsung Heroes All of our clients get their own QR code for free when purchasing an ad. www.scv.org This month a modern and racially diverse America will set aside time to recognize the many achievements, of pioneers, revolutionaries, inventors, athletes, politicians, soldiers and heroes belonging exclusively to the African American community. Among this crowd of patriots, are some who seem to hold center stage, and while their achievements certainly do merit the attention they hold, there’s another group of courageous African American men whose names seem to stay hidden within state archives and government records. These are the forgotten black Confederate soldiers, the often misunderstood, unsung heroes of African American history. One of these many brave men was Weary Clyburn, childhood friend of Frank Clyburn, growing up on the same farm, working, hunting, fishing and playing together. Weary was a slave belonging to Frank’s father. Frank & Weary were the same age, both born into an undeserved status.In 1861 Frank joined the Confederate Army, he was sent to Columbia, SC for training. A short time later, Weary shows up in Columbia telling Captain Clyburn that he wishes to join him. He willingly joined out of a sense of loyalty and friendship. The following years, Weary served alongside Frank in Co. E, 12th South Carolina Infantry. Weary was reported to have carried Frank off the battlefield, on two different occasions saving his life and for a short time worked alongside the legendary General Robert E. Lee. In 1922, he had a daughter, Mrs. Mattie Clyburn Rice. Later in her life she was officially recognized as the only living African American, real daughter of the Confederacy. In 2012 she helped to organize a memorial dedication to recognize her father & 9 other African American men, from Union County, that fought with the Confederacy and would live on to receive pensions for their honorable duty to serve their state and their community during a time of great difficulty. In consideration of Black History Month, The William F. Martin Camp, Sons of Confederate Veterans, would like to commemorate the Black Confederate Soldiers and their decedents who have helped to preserve their memory and the true cause to which they fought.
