I enjoy the works of Jeff Cooper , the gunner's guru !

If there is anybody out there on mindset experiences of real life ,
that's Mr. Cooper !

He talks about the existence in some of us of the killer instinct
neither to be extolled nor condemned ! Funny thing : he believes
that those people without the killer instinct lead somewhat
diminished lives !

As he says , we live in an emasculated age , most people are wimps in deed , but armchair warriors in mind ! He thinks that the killer instinct is worthy of in depth study as among us there are those who are true killers and those who are not ! You lotus eaters karate-ka , 'masters' of your art _ will leave a big brown stain before you die upon realizing you are about to be killed by some lowly unassuming opponent with no martial arts experience whom you grossly underestimated ! Sound familiar ??



You think you are a tough karate - ka ; tournament fighter , big bad
Mother F*** ; let's see how well you would do against a cape
buffalo[Syncerus caffer] in Africa !
Here is one bull with a real attitude [ killer instinct ] which might
cultivate out of mindset :

" You wound a buffalo and he turns into 1500 pounds of hate . He
can run faster than you , smell what you had for dinner two nights
ago , turn on a coin , hide behind a bunch of leaves , and when this
big black brute boils out of the bush his little eyes are focused only
on you . Nothing will turn him . As he charges , he chews out bullets
and spits them out . Only death will stop him , his or yours , or both
." [ by Jep Jonas in Magnum ]

It is said that for a big game hunter he must gather ten bulls before
he can be sure of drama and resolve !

How many bulls have you gathered ?

Van-san,

I must confess I am no big-game hunter - and as such have not gathered any bulls or cape buffalo. Instead, when needed, I turn into one. No prisoners, no trophies. I prefer live flesh anyway.

Peace,
Lori

" SYNCERUS CAFFER , the joined horned infidel . Something unnaturally demonic in the rage of the cape buffalo ; " vindictiveness" as in vengeance of human emotion ! Once a buffalo has acquired the idea that that he is being abused or even threatened , only death will turn him off ! A buffalo may brush aside a man he has not selected , but once he gets to his prime target he does not stop ! He hooks and pounds and stomps and bites until there is nothing left of his antagonist except shreds . I saw a photograph from Africa ; it depicted a piece of ground about the size of an average living room , and on this ground only three objects were clearly distinguishable . Two were boots with the stubs of feet protruding , the other was a head , resting upside down showing a blond beard and a stump of spine . " { Jeff Cooper }
