We as armed citizens are called to walk a higher path: to provide security for ourselves, our loved ones and even those citizens around us who may despise the freedoms necessary to provide such protection. Given the grim nature an armed conflict may lead to, each citizen who chooses to shoulder the responsibility to bear arms should endeavor to achieve ever higher levels of skill and discernment.

If you head to the range, stand back and watch various shooters, you can notice some really interesting behavior. One such item I've seen at many ranges, is the failure to expect accuracy. Talented bolt action shooters who can drill 1/2 MOA groups regularly will pick up a modern sporting rifle (such as an Ar15) and totally bail on their expectations. Instead of prone or at the bench, all of the sudden they're standing with poor chicken wing form, blasting rapidly and then decrying the rifle as inaccurate. This isn't a failure of the rifle, it is a failure of the squishy matter between the operator’s ears.
