Barron is the owner, editor, and principal author at The Minuteman, a competitive shooter, and staff member for Boomershoot. Even in his free time he’s merging his love and knowledge of computers and technology with his love of firearms.

He has a BS in electrical engineering from Washington State University. Immediately after college he went into work on embedded software and hardware for use in critical infrastructure. This included cryptographic communications equipment as well as command and control devices that were using that communications equipment. Since then he’s worked on just about everything ranging from toys, phones, other critical infrastructure, and even desktop applications. Doing everything from hardware system design, to software architecture, to actually writing software that makes your athletic band do its thing.

A thanks is deserved by the entire Huffman clan for putting this on every year.  It takes a lot of time and effort to organize this shin dig.

Thanks Kim, Barb, Joe, and Xenia.

Anyone who says things like this don’t bring families together must be nuts.  Today is the first day of Boomershoot, if you’re not here, well it sucks to be you.

The chemistry set, without this nothing would go boom.  There’s actually two mixers running during full production.  This year I’m going to try and spend some time out there and help, if nothing else finally document the effort for everyone else to see.SDC10823

Some must die for others to be a “Hero”

An off duty cop, not in uniform shot a man in front of his wife in his own house today.  The man ran after the off duty officer pulled a gun and yelled at the individual he was a cop and proceeded to run at him.

Moments later, "Josh ran into the house, slammed the door and fell," said Britton, 22.

"I said, ‘What are you running for?’ And then he [the off-duty cop] opened the door like he was welcome in our house," Britton said.

"He didn’t have a badge. He didn’t have a warrant. He took a breath, looked at me, and shot Josh. And then he turned and ran."

The officer needs to be jailed, he is responsible, there’s numerous versions of the story but he should have called police instead of running up kicking in the door of the house and just shooting him.  The cop was not in uniform, not on duty, not in his jurisdiction, and had no real business other than calling in what he perceived to be suspicious behavior.  I honestly wish in this case the home owner had shot the off duty cop, the guy obviously wanted to be a hero and sadly this individual may pay for this cops desire with his life.

If you’re not in uniform, call the police, it’s what you tell us to do.  Stop looking for problems and creating situations because you want to be a hero.  You wrongfully shot this man and honestly committed murder.  I’m sure since he’s a cop though they’ll let him walk free, they always do.

The reason why Joe loves doing this is quite simple.

Don’t believe me, here’s the proof.

Note, these pictures were from a private Boomershoot event, doesn’t make it any less awesome though.

It begins

Now begins the job of arranging equipment, packing, and getting read for Boomershoot.  Blogging will be light over the next couple days, I have some stuff set to auto post but I’m going to be pretty busy.

This is the first year I’ll be camping on site so I’m trying to make sure I’ve got both camping and shooting equipment lined out and ready.  Tomorrow I pack!

21 Days of Boomershoot-Day 18 (2011)

I just stumbled across this pic Oleg took with a bunch of the Boomershoot bloggers who regularly attend.

But, there’s gun control.

A father of 4 was murdered in cold blood today in Britain after breaking up a fight in McDonald’s.

Raymond left the 24-hour McDonald’s but was chased into a cul-de-sac. The gun was then delivered and Mr Mitchell was beaten and pistol-whipped before being shot three times in an alley in Brixton, South London, at 6.50am on Sunday. Raymond, nicknamed Brown, was taken to hospital but died hours later.

Amazingly enough given all of Britain’s strict gun laws the criminal was still able to obtain one and shoot the innocent person who broke up the fight.  The individual was disarmed by his government and was told to rely upon the state for his protection.  We see how gloriously this blind faith failed this individual. 

His children are now left without a father not because of a gun, but the actions of an individual.  The individual responsible for this crime would have used a baseball bat, a tire iron, or any other tool available to him to commit this crime.

We also see through other statements that no one came to Mr. Mitchell’s aid even though they heard him in trouble and in fear for his life.

One neighbour, who saw the shooting but was too terrified to be named, said: “He was begging, literally begging for his life. I didn’t dare look out my window in case they saw me. I heard them laughing and swearing at him, calling him a ‘b***h’. I heard them laughing afterwards as well.”

Thanks to the disarmament of the population people who could have helped were instead rendered helpless to ensure the demise of Mr. Mitchell.  The police didn’t help Mr. Mitchell, the neighbors didn’t help Mr. Mitchell, the only person who could have helped him was himself.  That person was intentionally disarmed by his government to ensure the safety for their criminal class.
