Overheard in a Shenandoah RestStop
If you can reliably hit a man out to 500 yards or more -- and you have the will to do so every single time it is necessary -- you have created a 700,000 square yard "freedom zone" around you.
-- Overheard at a rest area in the Shenandoah Valley coming back from DC
The arithmetic and geometry is simple.
Pi [3.1416] times the square of a circle's radius give you the area of that circle:
3.1416 X 500 yards X 500 yards = 785,400.
Push it to 600 yards and you've got nearly 1,131,000 square yards of liberty.
The skill is attainable with instruction and practice.
The tools are equally attainable.
The will to shoot, hit, reload, shoot, and hit again must come from within, based on a recognition that those targets downrange have earned in spades the match-grade justice coming at high velocity towards them.
The consequences to the Bad People are devastating.
