    After having a cold Carta Blanca and watching '300,' I glance over at my old slabside and wonder.

    Readiness. It's a word with meaning in battle. It signifies preparedness, alertness, skill and confidence. It is also a word, like 'hero' that is overused and diminished by such overuse. Are you truly ready?

    Are you ready to carry the fight to whomever, whenever?

    Are you ready to bring the fight?

    Preparedness, training and confidence such as the Spartans used would shock and be reviled by those today, but the essence of that preparedness should echo in all of us. No doubt many of you who carry have gotten the strange look, the sideways glance, or cold shoulder from many of those sheep who would turn a blind eye and an inviting target for the predator. But are you ready to bare fangs at the wolves and fight? Warrior after warrior from the earliest ages of history has understood that fortune favors the prepared. So the onus is on you, you who have decided that depending on the mercy of evil is for those 'cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.' Are you truly ready? For those who have served know well the adage: The more you bleed in training, the less you bleed in combat.

    I'd like to think I'm ready, but funds have to be split several ways with a college budget, so I really can't practice much :hsd:

    Nice rant. And remember, second place in a gunfight usually is synonomous with "dead."
