So is Obama ?

a Socialist or a Nazi?

Just wondering
Well the truth is:

Chicago’s Sad Summer; Barack Obama and Mayor Daley's continued ignorance

Really nether Obama or Daley are ignorant, they just don't care.
Met Breda!!

At Dave Grossman's Bulletproof Mind Seminar, in Columbus, she is a petite but strong lady, & her husband Milk seems like a jovial sort. It was an honor.

I hope to have them down for training in the near future
Good thing they have strict gun Control laws!!

Manual Safeties are a good Idea

"but the Browning 9mm never fired,"

JR has some more on this:

If the Chief had been carrying a Glock he would have gotten shot.
From An Email

And it does sound better than what DC has come up with so far

Hi Y'all,
I'm against the $85,000,000, 000.00 bailout of AIG.
Instead, I'm in favor of giving $85,000,000, 000 to America in a "We Deserve It Dividend."
To make the math simple, let's assume there are 200,000,000 bonafide U.S. Citizens 18+.
Our population is about 301,000,000 +/- counting every man, woman and child.
So 200,000,000 might be a fair stab at adults 18 and up..
So divide 200 million adults 18+ into $85 billon that equals $425,000.00
My plan is to give $425,0 00 to every person 18+ as a "We Deserve It Dividend."
Of course, it would NOT be tax-free.
So let's assume a tax rate of 30%.
Every individual 18+ has to pay $127,500.00 in taxes.
That sends $25,500,000, 000 right back to Uncle Sam.
But it means that every adult 18+ has $297,500.00 in their pocket.
A husband and wife has $595,000 .00.
What would you do with $297,500.00 to $595,000.00 in your family?
Pay off your mortgage - housing crisis solved.
Repay college loans - what a great boost to new gradsPut away money for college -
it'll be thereSave in a bank -
create money to loan to entrepreneurs.
Buy a new car -
create jobsInvest in the market -
capital drives growthPay for your parent's medical insurance - health care improves
Enable Deadbeat Dads to come clean -
or else Remember this is for every adult U S Citizen 18+ including the folks who lost their jobs at Lehman Brothers and every other companythat is cutting back.
And of course, for those serving in our Armed Forces. If we're going to re-distribute wealth let's really do it...instead of trickling out a puny $1000.00 ( 'vote buy' ) economic incentive that is being proposed by one of our candidates for President.
If we're going to do an $85 billion bailout, let's bail out every adult U S Citizen 18+!
As for AIG - liquidate it.
Sell off its parts.Let American General go back to being American General.
Sell off the real estate.Let the private sector bargain hunters cut it up and clean it up.
Here's my rationale.
We deserve it and AIG doesn't.
Sure it's a crazy idea that can 'never work.'
But can you imagine the Coast-To-Coast Block Party!
How do you spell Economic Boom?
I trust my fellow adult Americans to know how to use the $85 Billion "We Deserve It Dividend" more than I do the geniuses at AIG or in Washington DC.
And remember, The Family plan only really costs $59.5 Billion because $25.5 Billion is returned instantly in taxes to Uncle Sam.
Ahhh...I feel so much better getting that off my chest.
Kindest personal regards
,A Creative Guy & Citizen of the Republic.
Since I haven't figured it out yet

Rustmeister has video Barry "you talking bout me" Obama does not want you to see:
Ahab has it too:
Uncle has it too:
Home Defense

Of course in setting up a plan, one needs to consider lifestyle, family & location.

For me it is only myself & Lady D, we live out in the country, close neighbor is 350 yds away. We live back a about 900 foot driveway.

We keep a 12 ga pump gun loaded with #4 Buck, we also keep a CAR-15 with 30 round mag (55 fmj) Of course there a few hidden pistols here & there.

We also have a selection of cool tactical lights like Blackhawk & Surefire, & others.

but the one I have for home defense I found at a discount store on sale for $9

V-1 Million Power Series™ Cordless/Rechargeable Spotlight .

It may not be taci cool, but it does throw a lot of light, & the cost was very affordable, & yes I will be shooting one handed if need me, but with fried cornea's I really doubt they will resist a whole lot.
Obama Will Lose

David Deming has a way with words!

Obama is a Harvard lawyer who is a mile wide and an inch deep. He is only the latest in a long line of shallow elites that consider it stylish and intellectual to despise their own culture and heritage.

Picked up my carry gun

It had decided to stop ejecting when I was at LFI-1, Dale cleaned under the extractor, & tensioned the extractor, works well now.

Glad to have it back
Ya can't have it both ways Barry!

Address Gun Violence in Cities: As president, Barack Obama would repeal the Tiahrt Amendment, which restricts the ability of local law enforcement to access important gun trace information, and give police officers across the nation the tools they need to solve gun crimes and fight the illegal arms trade. Obama and Biden also favor commonsense measures that respect the Second Amendment rights of gun owners, while keeping guns away from children and from criminals who shouldn't have them. They support closing the gun show loophole and making guns in this country childproof. They also support making the expired federal Assault Weapons Ban permanent, as such weapons belong on foreign battlefields and not on our streets.

I also wonder since he took office in January of 2007, how many days has he really been at the job he was elected to perform?
Oleg has done a lot for us

Now he could use some help:

The LDA Trigger

I didn't shoot an LDA at Blackwater, I had chosen the, the 9mm LTC Single Action, but I did put in for one of the LDA's & lucked out being able to acquire one.

Truly never been a fan of double action pistols, the first shot usually requires 12-14 lbs of pull, then you have a lot of slack to take up for the following shots.

Not so with the Para LDA trigger! It is in fact lighter than some SA's I've owned, it is as Todd Jarrett says a real sweet trigger.

The pull is very much like a Glock, so far I've only had time to dry fire it, & hope to make it to the range this Sunday.

The Para LDA fits that area of people that like 1911's, but find cocked & locked a bit scary, but they don't want a true double action*, but want a consistent trigger. This is a double action that I would carry.

(*A true double action will continue to cock & release the hammer without resetting the gun)
What A Pair!!

Dave Hardy got his LDA also:

Really is'nt Bush's fault

NYT 1999
"Fannie Mae, the nation's biggest underwriter of home mortgages, has been under increasing pressure from the Clinton Administration to expand mortgage loans among low and moderate income people and felt pressure from stock holders to maintain its phenomenal growth in profits. . . .

John Lott's Website: Even the NY Times understood that this meltdown was going to occur 10 years ago
They know they are losing

They know they can't beat Mc Cain since he has Sarah as a VP, so they are going with a "Hail Mary", after the VP Debate, as they don't want the sheep to see Sarah skinning & nailing Hillary's hide to the barn wall.
Voting for Obama,

Is like going to going to the fast food drive thur, you hope they get the order right & the change right.

Like Joe Pesci said in Lethal Weapon, "They F*%# You at the Drive Thur"!
The Kids are Home!

The Gun Blog guns arrived yesterday!, The Para-USA 9mm LTC that I shot at Blackwater, & an LDA in 45 Auto. I will pick them up tonight.

I had taken my dealers FFL with me, & when I got back I requested if there were any unclaimed 45's I would like to purchase one, & well I lucked out ;-)

It Does work!

Now that I've had some time to really focus & apply what Todd Jarrett taught us at the Para-USA Blogger event, I am seeing a pretty remarkable improvement, & I wasn't bad before I got there.
Whenever you are shown something new it is likely going to feel unnatural at first, but take the time to work it & it give it a chance, you may well improve your performance.

And the winner is:

Compared to weapons loss rates for the FBI and Drug Enforcement Administration, the ATF misplaced almost twice as many guns.

Leave it to the ATF to lose twice as many weapons, oh yeah that's their job isn't ??

Gun Games:

Some were pretty simple 6 inch plate rack at 7 yds*, clay birds on hangers at 8yds, golf T's at 7 yds, & splitting playing cards at 7 yds, it seemed for many of the first timers didn't quite get it & threw as much lead as fast as they could at the smaller targets, like splitting a playing card, instead of taking time to maybe make, the shot count? I guess "while there is lead in the air there is hope in the heart", I told them they shot like cops

*Newbold targets, not steel
We are back!

The Patriot Day cookout went well, shooting was a bit light this year, I'm guessing down to around 2000 rounds. We did have a light turn out of shooters.

Sunday cleaned up most of the range etc & then went to gun show, nothing really caught my eye, & we got home before IKE blew through, damage has been light other than the length of time the power was out we did loose a lot of food stuffs.

Blogging will be light

preparing for the Patriot Day cookout & shootem up

"These estimates are based on calculations of the 'lost product' that is represented by premature deaths from armed violence," said Achim Wennmann of the Small Arms Survey.
"These people — had they lived — would have contributed as any other individual as productive members of society. Their deaths represent a loss that can be quantified," he told The Associated Press.

They assume they would have contributed to society, when the survey shows 70% of the homicide victims are felons. So what would have been the cost if these "victims" had continued their professional careers?

When you look at the numbers we have approx. 16,000 +/- homicides a year in America, about 11,000 are firearms related. This includes Law Enforcement, & Self Defense shootings. ( a note to put in perspective Memphis TN had 35 self defense homicides in the first quarter of 2008, that's just one city)

With a population of 300,000,000 +/- the odds of being a homicide victim are pretty low, about 1/2 of those that are felons. Since Cain slew Able we have been killing each other, & that will not end no matter how many treaties are signed or laws are passed it's the nature of man.

If laws were effective at controlling mans behavior the first 10 would have been enough.

They really are different

Seven years today, & the really sad part the country is no safer today than it was that day.

Oh you can say there have been no more attacks, but our men & women overseas have a lot to do with that.

OBL said we were a paper tiger, attacks here would have given many resolve, to well "git it done", but nothing is happening here, many think we should just bring everybody home, & then we will have another 911, or a lot of little 911's everywhere.

They hate us to their cores, & they will not give up their attacks, until we remember how to really fight a war.

"War is the remedy that our enemies have chosen, and I say let us give them all they want."- General William T. Sherman

Even Barack who needs reason Obama's Insults not Original

McCain's Selection of Palin is Lipstick on a Pig
By Liz - Aug 30th, 2008 at 8:28 am EDT
Palin does not change one single thing of what the Republicans are offering which is four more years of George Bush. All that McCain did was to put lipstick on the Pig (the Bush Administration whose failed strategies have wrecked our nation). Nothing has changed except for an exciting and sexy dash of lipstick to freshen up their tired old face of more of the same.

HT to MM:
You can help turn it around!

If you are tired of seeing Made in India, or Made in China, think American!
How's that you say? Think Blackhawk, my friends.

Blackhawk began in Mike Noell's garage to make items that were ether not issued, or the issued items were not the quality that operators needed to get missions done.

Well Blackhawk has grown from that garage to a new world HQ's in Norfolk as well as facilities in Idaho, Montana, & North Carolina.

What's the secret? they are making as many products as they can here in the US of A, that's Americans making the products!

Of course the next thing is "it's too expensive", hey you can't have it both ways!
But they are not that expensive really, Let's look at pants, Blackhawk is about only $5 more than 511, & the back pockets are in the correct place for a man's wallet, not halfway down the leg. In the Blackhawk, the leg pockets feature webbing for mags, not just the right side ether. In 511 you will find a pocket.

Uncle has some word on the Blackhawk holsters:

Since returning from the PARA USA-Todd Jarrett event,

I've ordered a Sherpa Level 2 for Lady D's M&P, she wanted a paddle, FBI cant, & retention, hey that's no problem with Blackhawk. She also liked the Carbon Fiber finish, & the matching mag holders, I mounted on the M-3 light carrier.
I did the same set up for the 1911 mag holders I brought back from the trip.
I also ordered The Gladius flashlight, & the Mod-U-Lok carrier

A lot of future tactical & shooting products I acquire will be from Blackhawk, check them out:

Right now I need to get back to their catalog.

Well it's been 2 days

since these people said they would send me an RMA If you order from them you better have all your i's dotted & T's crossed & hope they send what you presumed you ordered, because they don't seem to want to provide customer service.

Perhaps I need to start posting on the car forums

Oversight, or they just don't care?

I had seen coverage of this earlier, & dismised it, but surfing around I have seen several more references to it, when there is this much smoke there has to be some fire.

I don't think they care about America at all, they just want the power! Your Rights, Your Flag, what other changes are they going to make, to keep that power?
I wonder?

We apologize for the frustrations that you have experienced with us. We are now processing your RMA and your return shipping label. We will not charge you for a restocking fee.

Thank you,

Customer Service

It's been 7 days now, last tuesday they said 3-4 days for an RMA, then Friday they sent an email that it would be 3-4 days, & the email sent sunday stated 3-4 days for an RMA, once I pointed out I was blogging about their customer service, I got the above email.
So we'll see how long it takes now.

Ted Likes Sarah!

We need welders, cops, teachers, ditch diggers, business people, construction workers, secretaries, auto mechanics, and guitar slingers to come to Washington, D.C. and replant the good old "We the People" tree.


High & Tight Straight Grip

Sailor Curt shows a series of photos regarding Todd Jarretts grip.
It is a combination of both grip alignment to the forearm & grip pressure.
He deatils it here:

"This woman who knows how to look down the barrel of a gun and gut an animal in the wilderness is not afraid that she'll break her nail when she punches some deserving opponent right between the eyes in a political brawl," said Sandy Froman, a former president of the National Rifle Association.

The Para Weekend

It was indeed a very long drive there & back. A very busy 3 days of training, & I never wanted to appear anti social, I was just fairly whupped by the end of each day.

The trip was much like a dream, which I had last night. Quality guns, Quality gear, Quality facilities, & Quality people.

Para-USA does make fine quality handguns, & with the move to NC they will be expanding into rifles.
Wonder have they ever thought of producing Browning's other pistol?, the HP?
I'm looking forward to the arrival of the one I bought from the training class.

Quality Blawkhawk gear, they did make us feel welcome, & gave us what we needed, I've already sent an order their way.

Blackwater really does have some of the finest shooting facilities I've ever seen, although I don't get out much, but as the other bloggers coined Disneyland for Shooters.

Quality People, I love shooters, they really are the best folks in the world.

Now back to that entires in the 360 degree shoothouse
Lack of confidence?

Biden is nevertheless continuing to run for Senate re-election as well as Vice President.

If he felt sure of a win with the Obamarama ticket, why would he continue the run for his Senate seat??
That about says it all

"I want to tell you folks something," said Huckabee. "She got more votes running for mayor of Wasilla, Alaska, than Joe Biden got running for president of the United States."

& she has more experience than Barack "give a speech" Obama

They want to charge a restocking fee!
When I ordered, I ordered for for each side of car, and they are specific to which side they go on, now they want to charge a 20% restocking fee?
I clicked once for Driver & once for Passenger, although the part # came up the same, I thought at the time they were interchangeable. I would have no problem if I had screwed up, but I ordered correctly, it's their website that is screwed up.

It's not tiny!

Alaska is the largest state in the United States in land area at 570,380 square miles (1,477,277 km2), more than twice as large as Texas, the next largest state. It is larger than all but 18 sovereign nations. and the 6th wealthiest (per capita income).
Hope & Change ?

Funny Obama promises "Hope & Change" & picks Washington, Joe Biden, he may be from Delaware, but he has been in DC a long time. That seems more like the same old same old

"Biden has served for the sixth-longest period among current senators."

Obama states that McCain is more of the same old same old, but McCain picks a younger nearly unknown VP.........

So really who might be offering Change?
Idiot Brits

Sarah Palin: God and guns not a good combination

Mr Martin there are three things that made America the greatest country on earth
God-Guns-& Guts

Mrs Palin has all three!

Between Vista & Dial-up getting on the net & having it work over the weekend wasn't happening.

Saturday & yesterday, really had a chance to work on what Todd Jarrett had shown me at Blackwater, & no doubt it works. It will take a while to make it happen without thinking about it. but it does work.

Lady D shot her Distinguished Marksmanship course of fire yesterday, & made it with an 89%, between surgries & recoveries, this has been a goal she has been trying to obtain for 3 years.
