Low cost defense

Wasp Spray
I have a friend who is a receptionist in a church in a high risk area who was concerned about someone coming into the office on Monday to rob them when they were counting the collection. She asked the local police department about using pepper spray and they recommended to her that she get a can of wasp spray instead. The wasp spray, they told her, can shoot up to twenty feet away and is a lot more accurate, while with the pepper spray they have to get too close to you and could overpower you. The wasp spray temporarily blinds an attacker until they get to the hospital for an antidote. She keeps a can on her desk in the office and it doesn't attract attention from people like a can of pepper spray would. She also keeps one nearby at home for home protection. Thought this was interesting and might be of use...

And it does kill bugs
Hmm didn't make headlines when she broke her face

A Reminder about Safe Direction

Received via email (no other details, it appears he really got lucky) Per The Armed School Teacher this may have been from a 12 GA,(see comments) I added the shoe photo, that came with the other, it does not appear to be big enough for a 12 ga resting on the foot, (but entry holes can be deceiving) if it was indeed a 12 ga, this idiot was really lucky. From the above book, close contact shots usually are a bit more devastating.

Says he respects the Military

Graduating midshipmen of the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis are being told in writing to leave at home or in their vehicles all "ceremonial swords" and anything else "that might be considered a weapon or a threat by screeners" for Friday's outdoor commencement ceremonies featuring an address by President Barack Obama.
Inside the Beltway has obtained the academy's list of prohibited items for this year's graduation exercises, which, besides ceremonial swords, includes umbrellas.
Yes, cell phones and texting are still allowed.

If the C&C fears the weapons of his own military, then he must go into PSH over mere citizens having any. It is going to be a wild & crazy ride my friends.

B.O.H.I.C.A. ?

Well it's no wonder there is no ammo, that it is being bought as fast as it hits store shelves, they want to to an end around on the 2nd amendment.

Cutting grass will get you arrested

The government keeps telling people to take part, sort of play it forward, but when they do it seems the reward is a fine

About 12 dumptruck loads so far, suppose to be 10 more today, & hopefully the "new" range will be done, we will go from around 24 feet to around 50 feet of back stop, with wings, although we won't be able to shoot south, we will be able to shoot north as well as east, & it will be a bout 2 foot taller. While he is here I'm having in put a compacted dirt pad in so we can add a yard barn for target storage etc right behind the pistol line.

The expansion started last year but equipment & weather have delayed completion, we had the extended base in last august, now it's just filling in compacting & getting the frontal angle right, & getting it high enough

But anyway I'm excited to see it getting done
