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.

Dogs have been our hunting companions for thousands of years but when did this partnership begin? Scholars believe that dogs descend from the gray wolf, Canis lupus, the largest member of the Canid family, which includes foxes and coyotes, but have not yet established where they were first domesticated. Was it in the Middle or Far East or did dogs accompany our ancestors out of Africa? It is more likely that they were domesticated in several places at different times.
