I'd like to plug a certain website I recently came across called "The Box of Truth". They answer all of the questions you've had about different ammunition and their penetrating power. Ever wonder what the best Home Defense shell is for that 12GA you have behind the front door? Have you ever worried that your CCW ammo isn't up to the baggy clothes Homey G is wearing? Go ahead, give 'em a visit and find out the answers!
...and now for your viewing pleasure, a Glock modified for full auto w/ a groovy double drum magazine.

Where can I get one? :-)

The number of physicians in the U.S. is 700,000.
Accidental deaths caused by Physicians per year are 120,000.
Accidental deaths per physician is 0.171.

Statistics courtesy of U.S. Dept of Health Human Services.

Now think about this:

The number of gun owners in the U.S. is 80,000,000.
The number of accidental gun deaths per year is 1,500.
The number of accidental deaths per gun owner is 0.000188.

Statistics courtesy of FBI.

So, statistically, doctors are approximately 9,000 times more dangerous than gun owners.

Remember, "Guns don't kill people, doctors do."


Please alert your friends to this alarming threat. We must ban doctors before this gets completely out of hand!

Out of concern for the public at large, I have withheld the statistics on lawyers for fear the shock would cause people to panic and seek medical attention.

Crazy Lady on CNN

So sad...
God Hates Fags

Or at least that's what a small fanatical, inbred (the cult is comprised primarily of two different families, and the leader forbids marriage outside the group) cult would have you believe. They even use it as the address to their website. I'm talking about the WBC, or the Westboro Baptist Church of Topeka, Kansas. They are referred to in their Wikipedia page as "virulently homophobic". Perhaps their leader has a secret predilection he's keeping in the closet?

They're basic argument is, because the USA tolerates homosexuals, God is punishing America with hurricanes and soldiers being tortured and killed in Iraq. No, I'm not making this up. Read their web page. I'm not gay, but I can't stomach these idiots actions. It's a no brainer. What these people are doing is wrong.

In case you've been living under a rock, these miserable excuses for human beings have been protesting at military funerals with signs that read "God Hates Fags!", "God loves dead Soldiers!" and "Thank God for 9/11!". It has gotten so bad that a federal law was passed to make it unlawful to protest at military funerals. One state even passed a law making it "child abuse" for them to use their inbred children in their protests.

Now, they are planning to protest the latest casualties from the war in Iraq. Pfc. Thomas Tucker, one of these, is from Madras, OR. Almost 38 years ago I was born in Madras, OR. I guess this makes it hit home with me harder than normal. It is so wrong what these people are doing. I consider anyone who was brave enough to put themselves in harms way in the service or defense of this country as heroes, let alone being tortured, drug behind a moving vehicle and beheaded. These people need to learn to have respect for their fellow human beings. What a complete waste of flesh and blood and space these people are. I cannot describe how angry these idiots make me. What should be done about them is not up to me, but they need to go somewhere where the sun don't shine. You can't legislate manners and common decency, and unfortunately some people appear to be born without either one.

Look, believe what you want on the issues, but let's have a little respect for the people who have fought and died in the name of The Unites States of America. If it wasn't for people like Pfc. Thomas Tucker who fought and died on the beaches of Normandy back in WWII, we'd all be speaking German right now. In addition, these pieces of filth wouldn't be able to spread their hate and filth either, something that seems lost on them.

Well shit... I'm tired and I'm going to bed. Night, erm, morning...

I'm worn out and in a very bad mood right now. It's my own fault really. I pushed the ol' Caravan just a little too far past the "E" and suffered for it. Yep, that's right. I ran out of gas in the middle of the street about two blocks from the courthouse (I'm getting divorced) and seven minutes from my appointment, whilst looking for a free parking space. After I asked someone for help (I was ignored until I took preemtive action) I got a guy to help me push it into the closest space, a permit only space. Great, so I'll either get a ticket or be towed! So I walked (slowly) the two blocks or so to the courthouse, go up four floors to the right office and I wait almost thirty minutes past my appointment time before she came out to meet me. She then (kindly, once she's heard about my problem) let me reschedule for next week. I called my older brother and he came with some gas.

Not enough it seems. The van is tilted at a steep angle, nose down, and the two or so gallons of gas in the can aren't reaching the intake. So, after making a quick trip to his office and then to a gas station, we finally found a store that sold starting fluid (remember the boyscout motto). I also picked up a long funnel "just because" while I was there too. So, once we get back to the van, we put the five additional gallons into the tank. This time, after about fifteen seconds of cranking it turned over and smoothed out into an idle. Damn skippy! So, with the equivalent of a quarter tank of gas I was able to drive home. I'm keeping the starting fluid just because, you never know when it might come in handy.

I would keep a five gallon can of gas in the van with me for these emergencies if it weren't for the risk of explosion and fire in an accident. What's a guy to do?

Oh, I never did get a ticket or towed. How lucky am I?
First, a moment of silence for the most recently killed troops from Iraq. They were killed by some of the most cowardly scum to walk the planet. Thank God, some of their number have been taken out of action with extreme predjudice.

Well, what can I say? I've been meaning to start blogging again for a while. Life has a way of screwing with your plans though. On this blog, I'll give my unvarnished opinion on various subjects, mostly related to firearms, the war in Iraq and the second amendment. If this kind of thing bothers you, or you're a liberal gun grabber, then you might not want to read further.

Let's see... My collection is so far small, but so is my budget. I have (in order of purchase) a Ruger 10/22 rifle, a Remington 870 Express Magnum 12 gauge shotgun, a Mosin Nagant M91/30 made in 1938 with all matching serial numbers and lots of goodies, a Ruger 22/45 pistol, and a SKS "Yugo" M59/66 rifle made in 1975.

Yes, I've shot them all and they're all fun to shoot, but I have to admit to liking my new SKS a lot. I bought one hundred rounds for it's first trip out to the range and I wish I'd bought more. I guess it doesn't hurt that it's a semi-automatic and has a ten round magazine. Both the Mosin and SKS are very accurate, which is good because sometimes you play pot-luck with millitary surplus rifles. I had my doubts when they told me the SKS was in "Unissued" condition, but once I had the cosmoline all cleaned off of it I was a beliver.

Guns I want to get: Ruger SP-101 in .357 Magnum with a fanny pack holster for CCW (I'll be getting my permit soon). I shot an aquintances SP-101 at the range the other day. It kicks like a mule with .357 Magnum loads in it, but I like it a lot and with .38 Specials it'll tame right down. I've also been lusting after some really nice 1911's, but on my budget that might be more easily said than done.

Well, that's all for now. I've run out of things to say and I have an appointment in a few minutes.

Bubye... :-)
