I have a label: "WWTD"
It stands for "What would Tam do?"
It's a bit of a josh. Tam is not Christ, by any stretch. But Tam has given up some good gouge over time, and is a reliable advisor. Frex: I had a jam issue with my 1911. Tam asked if I was loading all 8 possible in a 1911 magazine, and that if I was, that may be the issue. Sure enough, she was right. I load 7 now, and have never had an issue since. Good safety tip.
So now I have a category where I consider the experience and knowledge of someone that has been around the gun world a bit and has a level head on her shoulders. Now if she starts her own religion and want me to wire her money, that may be a different matter. But I don't see her trying that. It's similar to the advice I mine from Jeff Cooper's writings. He proffered up a lot of wisdom, and there are a lot of nuggets in there, but you gotta use your head while you filter out the occasional dross. Tam is like that. There is very little dross. It's like she is conscientious of (for? to? dang grammar...) her readers or something.
