Project Appleseed: My Daughter’s First Shoot

By Jay Mundy “Dad, do we have to go?” Samantha, my then 13-year-old daughter asked. “Yes.” In Sam’s defense, I’d gotten her up at 5.

When Is It OK To Violate The Four Rules?

By A. Reeder The question came up after reviewing several shooting episodes posted on YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter (also some news station videos).
