Email to Shooting Times

For the first time that i can remember, i disagree with Sheriff Jim Wilson. He is a courteous gentleman so i understand why he apologized for his earlier comments about IPSC. (Although, calling it an "armed track meet" with " cute, pastel-colored pajama outfits" is pretty funny.) But he went too far when he wrote: "The majority voted, the majority rules, and life goes on."

If Col. Cooper and the guys at Big Bear believed that, we would all be shooting .38 Specials out of the FBI stance. Progress does not come from going along with the majority; it comes from cantankerous individuals who are willing to challenge conventional wisdom and figure out what really works.
