Hippys with Handguns

I recently received this email from the indoor range where I currently practice with my .22 rifle.

-------------------------------
Dear fellow Members

Many of you have seen the amazing demonstration of the Power Balance wrist bands that we had a few of recently.

Good news - the club has been appointed the Sydney reseller for them now and we have good stocks in, just in time for Christmas.

First in best dressed, so get in soon. For more info, check out their website - http://www.powerbalance.net/

Kind Regards
-------------------------------

Now I figured this must be some kind wrist brace used in pistol shooting (the club is primarily a pistol club) so I thought I'd check it out.

I discovered that:

-------------------------------
Power Balance is performance technology that uses holograms embedded with frequencies that react positively with your body’s natural energy field to improve balance, strength, and flexibility.
-------------------------------

How does it work? I'm glad you asked:

-------------------------------
Most everything has a frequency inherent to it. Some frequencies react positively with your body and others negatively. When the hologram comes in contact with your body’s energy field, it allows your body to interact with the natural, beneficial frequency stored within the hologram. This results in improved energy flow throughout your body.
-------------------------------

Now is it just me, or do you also wonder at the wisdom of allowing people who believe this kind of crap to possess handguns? Even if the guy in charge of the club is just out to make a buck he must think that a reasonable subset of the members will buy into it.

Scary stuff.
