A Marine Buddy

Of mine doesn't like pistols or want an AR in his house.  Like many Marines I know, they become half Hippie after leaving the Corps.  They still LIKE shooting, but scary black rifles are too scary to keep around.  He'll play with mine.

He has a shotfun for home defense.   And WANTS a boltie in .308.

He got to try one of his buddies Mossberg bolt action in that chambering, and now this same individual is gonna sell the gun at a steal of a price.

Problem is?  It doesn't work very well.  But, from what they describe, it sound magazine related.  And Mossberg says it will use a variety of magazines...  So I am thinking that some magazine work better than others, and that he can get this rifle, find those magazines, and be happy with the purchase.

The Power of Cheese.

And with any luck I am buying cheese from here.  Something with angel tears. 

Gonna spend WAY too much there.

Howdy, partner

Poor Schwartz...

Pajamas Media

Wow, the new site design is really awful.  Change is not always an improvement, ya know.   The change will make me less likely to check on them, or only use them as a pass through to Instapundit.  Now PJ Media looks like a dumbed down, crappier version of itself while trying to look like everyone else.

Don't change Instapundit, Glenn.  Certainly not like that.

Terrorist Watch List

I got an idea.  Let's forbid all the people on the No-Fly Terrist Watchlist from buying a gun.  Then delete all the names on the Watchlist. 

I mean, apart from the gun stuff, what is the list doing?  No one is going to use the tactic of taking over the airplane and crashing it into buildings again.  That method didn't even work on all of September 11th.  And now there are door and a tube full of people that know not to sit tight and just wait for the ordeal to end at Havana airport when the hijackers land and get off. 

Feinstein Reid Schumer and Clinton all deserve to be yoked by tyranny as they wish to do to the rest of us.

Gonna be outta pocket

What with holiday travel and all.  Posting may be sparse.

As many of you already know... if you decide to have a go doing in one of them cowboy action shooting type organizations, a big part of the fun, apart for shooting 19th C type shootin' arns, is you dress up in costume and pick a persona name.  An alias.  A moniker.  A name to go by.

It's like those Society for Creative Anachronism geeks playing at the Middle Ages, wearing arm and fighting sword battles with rattan poles for sword, but here you are shooting targets and it's the American Western Frontier, post war.  You still need a name.

What sorta names should someone like me be looking at?  If it has to be unique, I bet Thunderbolt is taken...  Wait maybe not.  There are variants, too, on that.  If someone had T-Bolt, there is Tarnation and Thunderbutter.  &c.

  •  Cornhole Pete
  • Ol' Stanky 
  • Spittoon
  • Milkin Stool (He has 3 legs)
  • Blamazon
  • Union Suit
  • Stumbles
  • Thunderjugs (She's a nice lady...)
  • Catfish
  • Double Down
  • Itchy
  • Plugger
  • Shiner
  • Ribeye
  • TBone
  • Skirt Steak
  • Pumphandle
  • Skunk Kicker
  • Skitter

And Apparently

Winter is coming. 

So, the hunt today was in the 40s.  Not bad.  I had learned from previous ones.  I need bigger boots and over shoes?  Why?  One more layer of wool socks.  And ditch the military utility pants and get some wool so it is long johns, pants, insulated overalls.  Then I think I am ready for the 20 degree drop tonite.


Saw a smaller doe.  Didn't take the shot.  Wanted it a little bit closer.  Woulda been perfect otherwise.

Gone Huntin'

With luck, I went hunting for deer yesterday and/or today and if I got sumthin I'll let you know.

Hmmm, this is posting at 7AM.  Suns should be bright enough now.   Maybe I just shot a yearling buck.  Only took MBtGE 10 minutes.

Make up yer minds, Leftists

"There isn't a terrorism problem!  You have a greater chance of dying of infection from a paper cut!  Let the Syrian 'refugees,' which seem to be composed mostly of military aged males, in."

"We have a HORRIBLE terrorism problem!  We must ban anyone on the secret terrist watchlist from being allowed to own a gun, due process be damned!"

Well?  We either have 800,000 people already here that are too dangerous to be allowed near a gas station, much less in a gunstore or on an airplane, or we can import hordes of folks from regions chockablock with murderous barbarians and their supporters and sympathizers, where they make up 90+% of the population.  Which is it? 

Keep in mind we are already struggling with immigration from friendlier neighbors but that are still bringing criminal elements along and are pressuring all wages down in this soft employment market.

Moving to Pennsylvania

I asked you folks what the co-worker moving to Pennsylvania should get for his ol' homestead once he is out of restrictive Maryland.

Because of you people, he is leaning Mossberg 590.

But, speaking of HQLs yesterday, before he goes, he is thinking of getting one.  THAT way he can rent a firearm by his workplace here in Maryland.  He's moving to the countryside.  No ranges other than large expanses of the great outdoors.  He could get the HQL in just a few short weeks, then cut ties with Maryland.  The HQL is good for ten years, after...

It's Buy Ammo Day.  Totally forgot.

Guess I am going online tonight to place an order.  100+ rounds, right?
