2010 in review

I’m not impressed by these statistics. The intent of that M14 article was to persuade readers to email Magpul and ask for M14 Pmags. That’s it. Unfortunately, it’s become the number one draw to this blog. I do hope that folks that Google search “M14 Afghanistan” are staying to read my other writing.

To the folks that come learning to position shoot or to use an M14 sling, I salute you. Those photo tutorials remain the backbone of this blog. Continue to practice until you can proudly take the title “Rifleman”.

There will be continued medical and preparedness posts in 2011. They’re the easiest to write considering my school schedule. There will likely be additional riflery posts in the summer of 2011, but not before.

Finally, thank you to my small core of readers. I did start this blog to inform. It has become a bit of a sounding board of late. I will continue to strive for the highest quality writing, and to include well-formatted documents and including accepted rationales for all of my conclusions. I want the information I present to be excellent. Here is to a better 2011.
