Badlands Fieldcraft


The following is a post I copied with permission from a discussion over at the Brushbeater Forum. I thought the author made a lot of good points and they seemed to reflect my own observations I wrote about recently.

What makes a rifle practical and well suited to the tasks you envision for it?

When cogitating on what platform, caliber, optics, etc. one should pursue when attempting to put together a capable, versatile rifle covering a variety of roles – as always, “it depends” is the answer.

For example, from a quantitative analysis perspective, a test with all things being equal will show that a semi auto will be faster for follow ups shots than a bolt gun shooting the same cartridge.

Maybe this one?

That said, how much faster? Does it make any practical difference? At the cost of what other aspects? These are really the…

Dear Badlands Rifleman: Bolt gun vs. M1A considerations

Badlands Fieldcraft

The following was an email I received from a student, and as I was trying to answer it I had a lot of thoughts I wanted to convey so I figured it would be a good article.

Hi, I’m wondering if you would allow a bolt action rifle for the fieldcraft course. I have a Bergara B14 HMR in .308 that accepts 10 round mags.
The only self loading rifle I have that’s capable of 500yds is a Springfield M1A but the best accuracy I’ve gotten out of it is about 2 moa. Please let me know if either of these options would be acceptable for the course. Thank you.

To answer your question: yes, either rifle is appropriate and of course they are allowed (I’m a modern man, I’m not riflephobic after all). The Fieldcraft Course is a class that teaches skills that apply to anyone in the outdoors…

I Am a Racist*

President Joe Biden gave a fiery speech in Georgia on January 11th, 2021. He declared that those who oppose the Freedom to Vote Act must support Jim Crow laws, George Wallace, and Jefferson Davis. I neither support any of those people, nor the Right to Vote Act. I support our Constitution. I support conservatism, especially when it comes to limiting government powers, size, and spending. I consider myself a patriot. In the minds of leftists like Biden, that alone makes me a racist. Maybe he is right, and I just never understood what that word means?

If opposing the Federal Government taking over the Constitutionally defined right of states to conduct elections is racist, then I am a racist.

If calling for laws establishing that ONLY United States citizens can vote in elections, even local elections, is racist, then I am…

“Long ago, in The Time Before, Dick’s Sporting Goods sold guns. Lots of guns. And then the son of the founder decided to get woke and stop selling guns at all but a handful of the chain’s stores. After being hailed as a progressive, forward-thinking responsible retailer, the company now admits that going woke and kicking guns to the curb cost it (and its shareholders) $250 million in revenue.

That’s probably an understatement. When the pandemic hit, gun stores saw lines of people waiting to buy firearms, ammo, and accessories. Meanwhile, over at No-Guns Dick’s, corporate was furloughing employees as fast as their printers could pump out the pink slips. They sent 40,000 employees home when sales fell off a cliff and gun retailers were doing land office business.”

“The indoctrination of communist thought throughout the school system has infected the populace to such a degree that the very idea of freedom is misunderstood, the principles of capitalism defamed and derided by those incapable of surviving under a system that requires intelligence, drive and passion”

“Political correctness is fascism pretending to be manners.”—George Carlin

Cancel culture—political correctness amped up on steroids, the self-righteousness of a narcissistic age, and a mass-marketed pseudo-morality that is little more than fascism disguised as tolerance—has shifted us into an Age of Intolerance, policed by techno-censors, social media bullies, and government watchdogs.

Everything is now fair game for censorship if it can be construed as hateful, hurtful, bigoted or offensive provided that it runs counter to the established viewpoint.

In this way, the most controversial issues of our day—race, religion, sex, sexuality, politics, science, health, government corruption, police brutality, etc.—have become battlegrounds for those who claim to believe in freedom of speech but only when it favors the views and positions they support.

Free speech for me but not for thee” is how my good friend and free speech purist Nat Hentoff used to sum up this double standard.

Dr. Robert Malone is too much of an authority and is too honest to be allowed on social media. From John Mac Ghlionn at The Epoch Times via

Dr. Robert Malone is a U.S. virologist and immunologist who has dedicated his professional existence to the development of mRNA vaccines.

In the 1980s, Malone worked as a researcher at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies, where he conducted studies on messenger ribonucleic acid (mRNA) technology. In the early 1990s, Malone collaborated with Jon A. Wolff and Dennis A. Carson, two eminent scientists, on a study that involved synthesization.

In fact, Malone is the father of mRNA vaccines. He has served as an adjunct associate professor of biotechnology at Kennesaw State University, and he co-founded Atheric Pharmaceutical, a company that was contracted by the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases in 2016.

As you can see, Malone is…

By Publius Huldah (Joanna Martin, J.D.)

Our Framers understood that a free State cannot exist without an armed and trained populace (i.e., the Militia). Accordingly, they wrote a Constitution which prohibits the federal and State governments from infringing the natural right of the People to keep and bear arms.

Under our Constitution, the federal government has no authority to make any laws whatsoever over the Country at Large restricting the rights of the People to keep and bear arms. Gun control is not an enumerated power. Furthermore, the Second Amendment expressly forbids the federal government from infringing the right of the People (the Militia) to keep and bear arms.

The States are also prohibited from infringing the right of the People to keep and bear arms by Article I, Sec. 8, clauses 15 & 16, US Constitution. Those two clauses provide for the Militia of the Several States; and implicitly…
