Range Trip!

The purpose of today’s range trip was to shoot the Appleseed ‘redcoat’ target that ET had sent me months ago, months after he had originally threatened to send them, and I plain forgot to bring last trip. I was going to do a vblog type deal, but I fail at speaking, even with prepared notes: […]

One Year Old

Holy crap, has it been a year already? How’s it going? I have no idea. He seems to be okay. He walks and chatters and gets into crap and makes me lose my hair faster than the store ever did. He’s in the 95th percentile for height and 74th for weight, so clearly he’s a […]

I Approve!

Say, this sure looks like an excellent no-nonsense, lightweight fighting rifle! I bet that guy had expert assistance in choosing its configuration and parts.

I am appalled. Surely this opinion is not […]

Analogy

Was there some kind of big spec-car race yesterday? NASCAR is to auto racing what Olive Garden is to Italian food.

Policy Change!

Commenters who pass judgment on economic matters without a demonstrated understanding of economics consent to me hunting them down and pounding them in the head with a claw hammer until they smarten up. If you have not read von Mises, David Friedman, Hazlitt and Rothbard, please shut the fuck up and let the adults speak. […]
