Gun Tips By: Lloyd

Gun Tips By: Lloyd “Duke” Hodges A Happy and safe New Year to all. I hope you all received just what you wanted for Christmas too. I received a nice long gun. The first thing out of the box was the operating manual and I read it and understood what the levers and buttons are for and proceeded to operate the rifle after checking the breech (you never know until you inspect the chamber to see if is loaded). I am looking forward to the “sight in” and going after some paper targets. Several folks phoned and wanted to take a CCH class with their new handgun. I was pleasantly surprised that they are seniors who felt they needed some guidance with the gun training and I am jubilant that they admitted to a lack of knowledge other than what they had read about it. Because of this season they were advised about the B’s (no booze, no bullets. and no bragging) or bad things can happen. This is also the season of bright colors, however, consider some other colors: WHITE is when you are totally distracted, ORANGE when you are aware of surroundings and can make changes to your advantage, RED when things are going bad, and BLACK means you must act to protect yourself and whoever you are with from harm. Think about it. This is situational awareness. Some call it people watching. You may be surprised how aware you will become. We have had a rough year and I truly hope and pray next year will be better. I will continue to offer concealed carry instruction and my best reward will be no one gets injured or worse. So practice with the unloaded gun (look and verify): find likeminded folks and have fun at the range.

Three Cheers for the Camden Girls All of our clients get their own QR code for free when purchasing an ad. The true story of “the Maple Leaf” is an exciting subject to study. So much that it seems it could be a fictional tale suitable for a Hollywood script. Full of adventure and high risk ending with a hero’s welcome home celebration for 70 Confederate officers that had escaped after being captured and on their way to a POW camp aboard a union steamer called the “Maple Leaf”. This all happened right here in our neck of the woods back in 1863. During that time most of the area between Norfolk on down to Bertie county was occupied by federal troops, but the locals not in uniform, the children, the elderly and the women, just as brave as the soldiers on the front line, would risk it all to save their homeland from Lincolns invasion. This story tells of our locals that assisted these 70 officers to navigate their way through enemy occupied areas of Knott’s Island, over to Currituck, through the swamps of Camden and down to the nearest Confederate line in Bertie County. After the war, the veterans that endured this heroic escape spoke highly of the citizens of our area. Some spoke in very admiring terms of the ladies of Camden. While the men were hiding in the swamps the girls would sneak out and deliver them food and drinks. One young lady Miss Adelaide Campbell brought them a fresh baked pound cake with a Confederate flag stuck in the center. Another veteran, said “ A dance was proposed, and but for the lack of a fiddle, our company would have taken all the chances of capture for one dance with the Camden girls” It’s great to know that our local citizens were able to bring cheer and comfort during the toughest of times, as these brave men fought the good fight for Southern Independence.
