    Default RIP Chris Kyle

    I did not know the man, but respect him tremendously. What a warrior, and giant of a man! After all he went through, what a tragic way to go. I spent a week on the beach in Hawaii reading his book. The thing I took away from the book was, "Yeah he is a badass, but family and friends come first!" Props to the State of Texas for honoring him the way they did. Rest in Peace Warrior

    He was a great warrior and marksman that tried to help fellow vets out when they returned from war.

    A true American Hero!

    I find it very pathetic and sorry that Obama ordered flags to be lowered to half staff for Whitney Houston who was cracked out and drowned in her own bath water, but would not do the same for our American soldier Chris Kyle.

    down right a slap in the face to all those that protect this country! I say send his A** to Afghanistan and have our service men and women turn their backs on him like he has to them. What a pathetic example of leadership!

    Couldn't agree more.
    "Force fetch isn't about retrieving as much as it is conditioning a dog to handle pressure, in a very controlled environment. It's about putting a dog in the position of having to figure out how to turn off pressure by finding the correct response. This translates into numerous areas in training." Sharon Potter.

    His book was a great read. It highlighted the courage, skill, training of our finest. Chris also did his best to conserve his ammo. One of the best parts of the book was him shooting two IED throwers driving a moped with one bullet.
