Malcontents, "waving their little tea bags."

Most Americans said they are more committed to their favorite soft drink than the company they work for.

But they are most committed to their country, followed by their family
Keep this:

Off of this:

Until you have made the decision to fire

So True:

They’re standing over a rack of 1911s, so there’s a part of me that’s hoping that they’re going to do something smart like pull out an all steel, easy to shoot Kimber in 9mm – basically the easiest shooting gun on the planet. Needless to say, I was hoping in vain, as out of the case comes a micro-compact 1911 in .45 ACP with a 3 inch barrel. Let’s see, small grips, excessive recoil, short sight radius – clearly it’s the perfect first gun for a novice shooter! On the bright side though, it wasn’t a snub nosed revolver…but alas I spoke too soon, as the very next gun out of the case was a sierra foxtrot Taurus Titanium .357. Now you’ve hit the perfect gun: really excessive recoil, small grips, low ammo capacity, crappy sights, and to top it all off, a lousy trigger! IT’S PERFECT.

Assault Knife Attack!!

This time 28 victims!

When will laws be passed to ban them, everyone knows knives were devised for just one thing and that is of killing, They do not run out of ammo, and they do not jam. Assault knives cause people to act violently. All knives should be regulated, and anything over 3/4's of an inch should be banned or licensed. They are silent, and kill with every strike. spray thrusting leads to high victim counts, as one cannot miss with an assault knife. They are easy to hide, some even fold, and easy to acquire, through the knife show loop hole, one can purchase an Assault knife without a background check.

Assault Knife Assault!


And Another one

And another one

It even affects Canadians

All in the last 24 hours!!

Assault knifes can be described as having a thingy that goes in the hand, and they are usually pointed, and have one or more sharpened edges. Some have a feature called a "skull crusher" many of the folding ones , very easy to conceal, have locking blades, to protect the attacker. Some types have "Assisted Opening" so the attacker can attack faster. Some also have a feature called a "Guard' that allow for deeper stabs. They are capable of both stabbing, and slashing.

Yeah,.. tougher laws will fix it

Some of us can't stand guns and never want to use them. But we want the ex-marine on the subway to have one, just in case the creepy guy sitting next to us tries anything.

Yeah make what is illegal, more illegal that will sure stop them

Maybe we should start calling Chicago, "Little England", they may want to pass tougher knife laws too.

Pennies to improve your trigger control

While I am not a fan of shooting "The Reset" as fine motor skills are one of the first thing to go in a fight, it does teach trigger control, use to do it with quarters on round barrel revolvers.
Consider what it would be like without the ban

So far this year, 113 people have been killed across Chicago, the same number of U.S. troops killed in Iraq and Afghanistan combined in the same period, Fritchey said.

Well at least US Troops can shoot back

Law enforcement gets requests for firearm safety classes

class participants are expected to learn, the law, basic safety, and basic shooting skills, but most important thing law enforcers teach in these classes is not to take the law into your own hands.

It's not that they want to take the law into their hands, it's more they don't want to be a statistic

Hell of a shot!

Head shot at 48 yards, with a 45
He should be charged with negligence

3-year-old Kalli got her hands on a .40-caliber pistol and shot herself.

If you cannot keep a firearm out of reach of a 3 year old, you shouldn't own one, cop or not.
I'm sure he is devastated with the loss of his child, but he is the adult, and he should have kept better control of his weapon.

If you have small children, there are any number of products that secure the weapon, yet make it readily available if needed.

When I had small children living with me, I had 2 house guns, an old Hi Standard 12 gauge pump with a magazine lock out (When the lever was flipped you could cycle the gun, and pull the trigger all you wanted, and it wouldn't load) I kept a Browning HP unloaded, but cocked and locked, in a drawer by the bed, with the loaded magazine in a separate drawer. Even if they found both, they not only had too insert the mag, but also push the safety off, and rack it to get a round in it.
I also educated them, I took them to the range, and shot milk jugs full of water, with the 12 gauge, exploded warm cans of pop, and cantaloupe with the 9mm. I still remember the wide eyed look on their faces when I held the melon up, and explained thats what could happen to them if they played with guns. Sometimes a bit of fear, is the first step in respect. But at 4 and 6 they wouldn't touch a firearm without asking first.

Perfect day for the March on Washington DC

The Concord Hymn Ralph Waldo Emerson (1837)
By the rude bridge that arched the flood,
Their flag to April's breeze unfurled;
Here once the embattled farmers stood;
And fired the shot heard round the world.
The foe long since in silence slept;
A like the conqueror silent sleeps,
And Time the ruined bridge has swept
Down the dark stream that seaward creeps.
On this green bank, by this soft stream,
We place with joy a votive stone,
That memory may their deeds redeem,
When, like our sires, our sons are gone.
O Thou who made those heroes dare
To die, and leave their children free, --
Bid Time and Nature gently spare
The shaft we raised to them and Thee.
Fake doctors provided fake breasts
Running your patrol rifle
Ole War Horse Comes home.

This Garand is a Springfield Armory, from SOG, not sure what country it was imported from, it was $440 (handpicked) picked up a new buttstock at the gun show this week end so for $525 total not bad, and the bore is still in good shape, and the SN indicates it was built between 1955, and 1957.

Charter Arms Rimless

I've kinda of been awaiting these to be released, but there is the concern for quality, as the last few Charter Pistols that have come through class have been of poor quality, the last one we had in class the cylinder kept sliding forward in the frame, and would not fire, the student sent it back to Charter, and it was returned in the same condition that it was when he sent it in.
These are the same people marketing the Chiappa 1911, that has the 20 lb trigger pull, so it might be best if I don't get my hopes up.

Who pays for this crap?

"Cats and Dogs Are Household Hazards"

Cats never run beside you always directly in front, then they stop a lot to make sure you are still behind them, like little moving stumble blocks, and well dogs are dogs, and sometimes they get in front, and sometimes they push you out of their way, we needed a study to find all this out?

Paul Helmke is sad this week

Paul lets get one thing straight, for Columbine, those punks violated about 23 laws before they ever entered the school, so I'm pretty dam sure a couple of more would not have stopped them, and as to VT, the system was in place, to report the shooters mental problems well before anything bad happened, but no one did what they were suppose to do, so there was nothing to stop him. From the judge, to the professors, they ignored the problem, don't blame Glock.

If I go out in the country build a pen, and fill it full of sheep, and post signs, that say "No Wolves Allowed", and get the government to pass a laws that make wolves killing sheep illegal, when I come back in a week will I still have sheep?, or would I perhaps leave some sheepdogs with the flock, would I have a better chance, at finding my flock alive?
US News has a Poll on Open Carry

A small clue for everyone, about open carry, if its in a holster its very likely a good guy, unless its at wally world, then all bets are off.
Pentagon to adopt uniform rules on guns

The new policy is expected to mirror restrictions already in place at some military installations that, for example, require guns brought onto a base to be registered with military police.

Yeah.....Like that is going to work, or would have prevented what happen at Ft Hood
According to David Corn

We are dangerous extremists

Put this all together -- saber rattling, militia fomenting, demonizing government -- and you have a brew of far-right paranoia mixed with guns. When have we seen this before? Oh yeah, Timothy McVeigh and the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing. And here's the kicker: this pro-gun march will happen on the 15th anniversary of the Oklahoma tragedy. This is not insensitivity; it's a message.

It is also the 135th anniversary of:

"By the rude bridge that arched the flood,
Their flag to April's breeze unfurled;
Here once the embattled farmers stood,
And fired the shot heard 'round the world."

Perhaps for Mr. Corn anyone who might stand up for their constitutional rights, is an extremist.

2nd amendment activists are not anti-government, they are pro Constitution, they are simply asking the elected government officials do what they swore they would do and that is up hold the Constitution of the United States of America

Thomas Jefferson was born

"A strong body makes the mind strong. As to the species of exercises, I advise the gun. While this gives moderate exercise to the body, it gives boldness, enterprise and independence to the mind. Games played with the ball, and others of that nature, are too violent for the body and stamp no character on the mind. Let your gun therefore be your constant companion of your walks." - Thomas Jefferson

You should never assume a firearm is unloaded, they are all loaded, until you have physically checked them, and even after you have confirmed they are unloaded you do not point them at other people, and drinking and firearms do not mix well ether. You should also keep your finger off the trigger.

Administration Follies
For those who have never traveled to the great West, cattle guards arehorizontal steel rails placed at fence openings on highways to preventcattle from crossing. For some reason the bovines will not step on theguards, probably because they fear getting their feet caught between therails. We need to make that clear in order for everyone to appreciate thefollowing story.

President Obama received a report that there were over 100,000 cattle guards in Colorado. Because Colorado ranchers protested his proposed changes in grazing policies; he ordered Secretary of Interior Ken Salazar to fire half of the guards immediately.

Before Salazar could respond, and presumably straighten him out, California’s congresswoman Nancy Pelosi intervened with a request that before any were fired they be given six months of retraining. And these people run our nation???

Gun Rights Policy Conference

Great Conference lousy city

I have to agree with Tam here and here, and with Uncle

While there will be a lot of fights in Cali to try to reinstate peoples god given rights, I'm not going to spend money there, period. Just like here if a business posts a "No Guns" sign, I stop doing business with them. California has pretty much put the sign at the state border.

It is a great conference I attended the one in Cincinnati in 07,( it was really slightly south in the Blugrass State) and when its back in the area I'll attend it again.

Two years ago today

We lost Charleton Heston
I met him once in 1998
22 range session yesterday

Chiappa 1911- Getting it to hit, but after 200 round the finger couldn't pull the trigger, I think if it had even a decent trigger it would be fairly accurate.

Sig Mosquito- Lot of failures to fire, and eject, not as accurate as I would expect a Sig to be.

Browning Buckmark-As expected very accurate, only a couple of failures, fun

S&W 22A-1- Boring, very accurate, easy to shoot

I had high hopes for Chiappa, as a training gun for my 1911, but the trigger pull is extremely hard. (None of my double action wheel Guns are that hard or heavy). I would have been money ahead to have bought a conversion kit, and likely happier.

I had the same hope for the Sig, but it is so picky about what it will shoot, other than being good for malfunction drills, it is about useless. 6 inch groups at 7 yards are not what I expect out of a Sig.

The Buckmark was a used purchase, to add to the guns for student use, it ran as expected, and was a $100 less than I paid for the Sig (which I bought used)

The Smith was the least expensive of the 4 guns, but it was also the most reliable, and the most accurate of the 4, Saturday during class we did have a magazine floor plate blow out of one of the Smith mags,the plastic floor plate broke. The only thing I do not like about the Smith is the location of the mag release, being in the front of the grip

Without being extremely well trained, tested, and having your true performance validated on a regular basis, you cannot know that really are “good enough.” Unless you have an incredibly strong sense of what you can do under real-world gunfight or use-of-force conditions, you really don’t know where you are in terms of skill and ability.
