NRA Life Memberships – Special Opportunity

Posted by Rob Longenecker on 27th February 2009

NRA Life Memberships are usually $1000. Until March 31st, 2009, you can get one for $300. If you recently renewed, I believe you can upgrade for the difference.

One hitch – you have to be “sponsored” (probably not the right word) by a life member to get it. What that means is, when you  call the NRA Member services you need to have the Life Member number of a buddy to give them.

Call 1-877-NRA-2000 and press #3 for Life Memberships. You may have to wait on hold a couple of minutes.

I just upgraded and I’m now a LIFE MEMBER of the NRA. That feels pretty darn good.

It’s something we can do to let Mr. Obama where we stand.

A blog worth frequent visits.

Posted by Rob Longenecker on 25th February 2009

I recently recommended a book called “The Three Laws of Performance” by Steve Zafron and Dave Logan. I’ve been handing out copies to my friends. I’d like to recommend a copy to you.

Why talk about this on a holster-related blog? My customers occur to me as my friends and I want the best for them, for you. I like to share resources as well as rant against what I see that doesn’t work. This book is a resource for a future you didn’t think was possible.

The authors also have a blog and it’s well worth a visit. If you’re wondering how to interact with the current economy you may enjoy reading one of their blog posts entitled, “The Two Recessions.” Check it out and visit frequently. The book and the blog may offer you some access to some personal power you forgot you have.

Stimulus explained by professor

Posted by Rob Longenecker on 24th February 2009

Shortly after class, an economics student approaches his economics professor and says,

“I don’t understand this stimulus bill. Can you explain it to me?”

The professor replied, “I don’t have any time to explain it at my office, but if you come over to my house on Saturday and help me with my weekend project, I’ll be glad to explain it to you.” The student agreed.

At the agreed-upon time, the student showed up at the professor’s house. The professor stated that the weekend project involved his backyard pool. They both went out back to the pool, and the professor handed the student a bucket. Demonstrating with his own bucket, the professor said, “First, go over to the deep end, and fill your bucket with as much water as you can.” The student did as he was instructed. The professor then continued, “Follow me over to the shallow end, and then dump all the water from your bucket into it.” The student was naturally confused, but did as he was told. The professor then explained they were going to do this many more times, and began walking back to the deep end of the pool. The confused student asked, “Excuse me, but why are we doing this?” The professor matter-of-factly stated that he was trying to make the shallow end much deeper.

The student didn’t think the economics professor was serious, but figured that he would find out the real story soon enough. However, after the 6th trip between the shallow end and the deep end, the student began to become worried that his economics professor had gone mad. The student finally replied, “All we’re doing is wasting valuable time and effort on unproductive pursuits. Even worse, when this process is all over, everything will be at the same level it was before, so all you’ll really have accomplished is the destruction of what could have been truly productive action!”

The professor put down his bucket and replied with a smile, “Congratulations. You now understand the stimulus bill.”

“The Three Laws of Performance”

Posted by Rob Longenecker on 19th February 2009

If you have a business, lead a business, manage thousands or run a “mom and pop,” this is the book to read this year. I cannot recommend this book highly enough, especially in the trying economic times we’re experiencing now. (Amazon has it in stock for $18.45 in hardback.)

Despite the business title, you can apply this book to any endeavor, any important project or personal dream you have. Don’t wait to read this book. (Yes, you sales pro’s, too.)

“Cracks the code wide open for breakthrough performance. Recounting of specific successes across diverse businesses makes claims undeniable. A must read for next generation managers and leaders.”
Bob Young, Former Group President, Lockheed Corporation

Book: The Three Laws of Performance

Book: The Three Laws of Performance

Although most of us aren’t aware of it, we have a future that’s already been written. Our future is written by hopes, fears, dreams, expectations, and decisions made about life. In the same way, organizations have futures written by history, circumstances, culture, aspirations, successes, and failures. These already-written futures determine and shape the level of performance that’s possible for individuals and organizations.

In The Three Laws of Performance, Steve Zaffron and Dave Logan crack the code on rewriting the future for people and organizations, elevating performance to unprecedented levels.

As Warren Bennis wrote in his editor’s note: “I believe this book may be one of the most important written in many years. The ideas aren’t tips, tools, or steps, but are in fact laws that govern individual, group, and organizational behavior. This book can be a resource for generations to come.”

Extra effort…

Posted by Rob Longenecker on 17th February 2009

Extra effort

A little extra effort will go a long, long way. When you’ve already done what must be done, go ahead and do just a little bit more.

Once you’ve established some good, solid momentum, make full use of it. When you’re in the mode of accomplishment, keep on cranking out those accomplishments.

Beyond your original goal is the opportunity to raise your performance to a higher level. With a little extra effort you can get a lot of extra rewards.

Just an extra one percent can make the difference between being the best and being the same as all the rest. So every time you get the opportunity, give that extra one percent.

Persistent effort will get you almost there, and a little extra effort will carry you over the top. Once you think you’ve done all you can, find a way to do a little more.

Rather than focusing on how little you can get away with, give your attention to how much you can accomplish. Build on top of what you’ve already created and the results will be spectacular.

This totally infuriates…

Posted by Rob Longenecker on 10th February 2009

I’m absolutely in disbelief that this could happen. An Arizona rancher is being sued by a group of illegal aliens he stopped from crossing his ranch to illegally enter the U.S.

Do NOT read this if you have high blood pressure or there’s any likelihood the top of your head will blow off!

Climate change scare.

Posted by Rob Longenecker on 9th February 2009

They’re still at it. The climate change “global warmists,” “gloom and doomers” and such are targeting your kids. Chicken Little still thinks the sky is falling.

I was at a gathering this week where the guy who helped Al Gore spread his propaganda said, “I’m often challenged by adults who don’t believe our global warming story, but we talk to the kids and they know it’s true. We’ll work on them.”

As I’ve said in previous posts that what really concerns me is the notion that “it’s been decided so don’t rock the boat with your stupid, ignorant, skeptical questions.”

There are thousands of scientists who do not think global warming is an issue or caused by humans, yet Obama and the dems are hell-bent on screwing with the economy to fix a problem that may not exist.

Check out this recent short video and see what you think.

So, you think Obama’s a smooth talker?

Posted by Rob Longenecker on 8th February 2009

He’s only smooth when his Tele-Promter is working just right. When he’s making it up on the fly, he’s worse than Porky Pig.

This video is a message to Obama from his Tele-Promter with some tips and some demands.

Yes, it’s funny. It’s also sad that we elected such an empty suit because he could use a Tele-Prompter.

Why we carry…

Posted by Rob Longenecker on 6th February 2009

I received this in an email today and don’t know the original author. I thought I’d share with you the author’s take on why we carry.


My old grandpa said to me son,’ there comes a time in every mans life when he stops bustin’ knuckles and starts bustin’ caps, and usually it’s when he becomes too old to take a whoopin’.

I don’t carry a gun to kill people.
I carry a gun to keep from being killed.

I don’t carry a gun to scare people.
I carry a gun because sometimes this world can be a scary place.

I don’t carry a gun because I’m paranoid.
I carry a gun because there are real threats in the world.

I don’t carry a gun because I’m evil.
I carry a gun because I have lived long enough to see the evil in the world.

I don’t carry a gun because I hate the government.
I carry a gun because I understand the limitations of government.

I don’t carry a gun because I’m angry.
I carry a gun so that I don’t have to spend the rest of my life hating myself for failing to be prepared.

I don’t carry a gun because I want to shoot someone.
I carry a gun because I want to die at a ripe old age in my bed, and not on a sidewalk somewhere tomorrow afternoon.

I don’t carry a gun because I’m a cowboy.
I carry a gun because, when I die and go to heaven, I want to be a cowboy.

I don’t carry a gun to make me feel like a man.
I carry a gun because men know how to take care of themselves and the ones they love.

I don’t carry a gun because I feel inadequate.
I carry a gun because unarmed and facing three armed thugs, I am inadequate.

I don’t carry a gun because I love it.
I carry a gun because I love life and the people who make it meaningful to me.

Police Protection is an oxymoron. Free citizens must protect themselves.
Police do not protect you from crime, they usually just investigate the crime after it happens and then call someone in to clean up the mess.

Personally, I carry a gun because I’m too young to die and too old to take whoopin’.
