And The Winner of The Palin Photo Hunt Is…

…the unix_jedi. I do not know what is going on in this picture, but I support it wholeheartedly. For peace and trust can win the day, despite of all the Democrats losing.

Endorsement!

I am so impressed by the selection of Sarah Palin for the R vice presidency spot that for the first time in my life, I will slap a political sticker on my car! Let’s take a look at the Veep candidate, shall we? She took on the corrupt Alaska boys club, and won: “When it […]

Same Crap, Brown Wrapper

We may not agree on abortion, but surely we can agree on reducing the number of unwanted pregnancies in this country. The reality of gun ownership may be different for hunters in rural Ohio than for those plagued by gang-violence in Cleveland, but don’t tell me we can’t uphold the Second Amendment while keeping AK-47s […]

Appleseed Summary

So in response to pointing out some problems with the Appleseed syllabus, here’s pretty much the answers I got: “It’s an advanced course and really isn’t for the beginning shooter.” “It’s a beginner’s course and doesn’t need to cover advanced subjects like cover and improvised positions.” “It doesn’t matter that the instructors sometimes suck, they’re […]

History Matters

So this is the stage from which Barack Obama will be making his acceptance speech, in front of a stadium full of tens of thousands of adoring, cheering fans: Am I being unfair, or does anyone else get a Triumph of the Will vibe from all of this? I guess they couldn’t find a balcony. […]

Owie! Owie! Owie!

Sorry, kid. I know it sounds like a crock, but that really hurt your parents more than it hurt you. It took an entire lifetime for Polio to bring your Great Grandpa down, and it hurt like hell to watch. I hope you never have to go through that, and getting jabbed a few times […]

Wait, What?

So I entered the Gallery of Guns thing to win a Marlin XL-7. It looks an awful lot like a Savage 110, with the Accu-trigger, barrel nut and all. But I thought Marlin was bought by Remington? Help? I are confused.

Appleseed Strikes Again

I have previously made known my thoughts on the volunteer organization screwing up American rifle shooters under the “Appleseed” banner, but now that Breda has posted on her experience with them, I’d like to expand on my issues with the syllabus. Most importantly, shooting itty bitty targets on little pieces of paper at 30 yards, […]

Schooled By Sabra Airsoft

So myself, my brother the mathman, and our cousin hit the Greensboro funshow this morning. I was trolling to sell my Remington 1100 LT20, our cousin was there for moral support, and mathman was pricing M4geries and LED flashlights. Then at the end of a row, we both spotted something at the same time: “Airsoft […]

Goin’ To The Show Tomorrow!

I’m hitting the Greensboro gun show bright and early tomorrow morning with my brother and cousin. Gonna try unloading the 1100 LT20, and see if I can’t put my fingerprints on some neat toys.
