Thank You Playing And Good Luck With That

Dear Gun Show Vendors,

I know the S-12 was on Sons of Guns.  I know there are all manner of rumors flying about regarding its future.  But if you think this market will bear a 40% overnight price increase, you need to go back home and study your old Micro Econ 101 books. 

Sure it’s a coolish curiosity.  Sure it’s maybe gonna get the import ax.  But paying that much for a gun that still needs another $300 to $500 bucks into it to make it really usable and to develop its full coolio persona?  Nope.  And that’s probably why you still had all 3 or 4 boxes laying on your respective tables when, by that point in any old show, you would have already sold all but one and that one would have had someone hovering over it trying to talk himself into it.

The S-12 is not an AK.  Its usage is limited and its need for reworking well-known.  It’s a fun gun to own but its practicality, unless you want to run 3 Gun, is kinda limited.  By jumping it that high, you popped it into the category of, “The money I would spend on a gun that I NEED.”  And, in this economy, not many folks have the scratch to spend that much on a toy.  Good luck, though.  I hope you find your suckers.  Cause I’d hate to think you’ll be back at next month’s show with the price back down to maybe a 10% increase.  You’d look like a fool and an opportunistic snake oil salesman who can’t read the market.   

BTW:  I do have to thank you.  I had considered looking at one for a little over what they were going for a week ago.  So you saved me some coin that I can spend on my ARs and 1911. 

KTksBye,
Dante

Watch And Learn What Egypt Can Teach Us

See how ineffective an unarmed populous is against an oppressive government’s troops?  Think about that the next time you are declaring your desire to have us surrender ANY of the 2nd Amendment for the children. 

I’m not calling for violence.  I’m only saying that if the sheep are disarmed; who can prevent the sheep dog and the wolf from teaming up?

Wait… What???

Starting to see this pop up on Facebook and wondering where this meme is from.  Can’t point to any one post because the ones I’ve seen are all private and un-viewable by the friendless.  However the “logic” goes something like this:

“Because Sarah Palin put herself at the center of the AZ controversy, she now can’t be president since she showed such lack of class by making it all about Sarah.”

Sooo… let me get this straight.  The Media attacks her and tries to pin the whole thing on her.  She responds, batting them away like the ineffectual morons they are and SHE’S to blame for being made the center of the tragedy.  Let me see if I can apply that logic in other areas.  I’m a woman at a party and a man tries to rip my top off and expose my breast-a-ses.  The party stops and all eyes are on us.  I slap the bastard, kick him in the nuts, and call the police.   That makes the fact that the party was derailed my fault because I should have just let him expose me to the masses and left it alone so the party could continue.  Riiiiiight.  I guess that’s how some leftists sing themselves to sleep at night. 

I hope this is an aberration and not some new meme that the Lamestream media is floating. 

FTC Disclaimer: I’m not a Palin supporter.  I’ve repeatedly said I don’t think she’s electable.  But hell’s bells folks, pick a new whipping bo… I mean girl.  You’re starting to sound obsessed and… well… a little simple.

The Roaches Come To Feast After AZ Shooting

Ok… Let me get this right, Congressman King, you lowest of the low dirt-bag who is trying to climb on the bodies of the slain to get face time with a fawning media.  You think that a schizoid nut-ball who got it in his head to kill someone would have said to himself as he was book marking pages in The Communist Manifesto, “Oh shucks, I have to cancel my plans to go kill my Congresswoman because I can’t bring a gun within a thousand feet of her.  Darn.  Weekend is down the drain now.” 

GOOD LORD!  You tiny little man who can’t let the bodies assume room temp before joining hands with political cronies and playing all butthurt for the cameras.  You, and all the other ghouls supping on the blood of the fallen, should be ashamed of yourselves for this.  I wonder if I asked the Honorable Mr. King, Republican, NY, if he could, without looking at a note pad, tell me what the names of the “other victims” are?  Probably not.  Because he doesn’t care.  It’s just some numbers to him.  It’s just some ratings to him.  It’s just sauce for the goose.

You evil scum dwelling stellar example of all that is wrong with our political system.  SHAME ON YOU!  SHAME ON BLOOMBERG!  Shame on all you filthy troglodytes who jumped up and cheered at the news of the dead and greedily smacked your lips at the chance to chip away, yet more, at the people and their rights. 

Once more, you thick headed power hungry parasite sucking at the teat of the American Voter, please show me ONE instance where posting signs and making something illegal made it stop happening.  While you are at it, you may want to make murder illegal or shooting someone illegal.  That might have stopped the killings too.  You frivolous glory hounding moron.

Several Points To Ponder

Gun goes boom, man goes ouch.

First, to rip-off the hand grenade analogy, once Mr. Gun is loaded (and they are all always loaded), he is no longer your friend.

Second, as Unc points out, if you drop a gun, let it come to a complete stop on the ground.  Don’t try and catch it.  You are just too likely to grab it in a way that trips the mechanism or causes it to point at you.

Third, he was hunting so there is a not so small chance that it was a stand/blind related accident.  You aren’t in the Mekong Delta with VC hot on your six.  You don’t NEED to saunter about with your long gun in condition “Get Charlie.”  Leave it unloaded until you get your posterior into your seat

Forth, if stalking, keep your gun pointed in a safe direction and in a manner that, should you fall, points mister muzzle away from you. 

Lastly, next time you are passing by a gun store, check out the bore diameter on a Icosa-bore shootzenboomer.  If Wiki is correct, it’s .615 inches.  Lets do the math on that;  You have a hunk of lead a good bit larger than the end of some adult thumbs, weighing north of three quarters of an ounce and boogying at faster than 1500 feet per second.  That will give you around 1800 foot/pounds of hurt.  To put that into perspective, the typical 9mm round is half the size and could generate about 420 foot/pounds at the extreme.  … And yet;

“An ambulance took Mingie to the University of Tennessee Medical Center for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.”

Guns are magic death rays?  Hardly.

A Giggle For The Gunnies

I have a new holster.  I love it.  These guys were super nice and really cool.  Who digs for a holster they’re kidna sure they might have in one of the dozens of boxes they’ve brought to a Gun Show when they are already selling stuff like hot cakes and it’s the last hour of a show on the last day?  People who want a repeat customer, that’s who.  http://www.dmbullardleather.com/  Will be buying from them again. 

Anywhoo… that’s not the funny.  The funny is that this is the first holster I’ve had with a J-hook.  I like the versatility that it gives me and am quite happy with it.  But I’m accustomed to regular clips that grab onto anything.  Including pants that don’t have a belt on them. …like I usually have on at home. 

HINT!  You can’t draw a gun from a molded holster that is hung on pants using a J-hook if you have no belt.  You will only draw the holster out of your pants. 

Put the holstered gun on, went to do a brass check, and ended up with the smokewagon, skin and all.  *BlinkBlink*  LOLLOLLOL  Glad life provided me with that lesson free of charge.  I assume I’d have put two and two togther at some point.  I hope.

The only thing I don’t have to complain about is some GI taking up space in my living room. I’ll let you know about the Civil Courts if someone ever owes more than $20 to me. ---If you didn’t get that one; sue your Civics or US History Teacher.
