Well, There's Somewhere Else I'm NEVER Going To Go

Las Vegas. Too bad really, I had even thought of moving there once. All that is now nullified by this. A video (H/T KABA) has surfaced showing what appears to be the unnecessary and brutal beating of a National Guard Medic.

As a vet myself, and given the nature of this country and the TSA and the "only ones" mentality that has surfaced among SOME law enforcement personnel, I'll give the benefit of any doubt to the Sgt.

If the Seargent's story proves out to be true, I think any of the officers involved in this should be handcuffed and sent over to the Seargent's home station for a little payback in kind.

Range Report:

Well, today was my reminder on how much I hate Glocks. My company had it’s annual firearms qualifications today (as I write this, yesterday as I post it) and that got topped off by the cleaning process.

You want the truth? Yeah, I shot like shit. You see, the Glock doesn’t fit me. The grip angle places my wrist in a slight downward angle that I dislike. It was cold, it was raining, I was tired, I wanted a fresh cup of coffee and a hot shower and 8 hours of sleep since as I write this, I’m at work.

Now, my biggest issue (like I need any more issues) is this. Why does a company issue a handgun for duty use that you cannot practice with sufficiently to become actually proficient? I get about 45 rounds a year with this damn thing. The other several thousand rounds I fire, come out of a 1911. Whole different feel, whole different manual of arms. Different POI, it’s just a totally different animal. Oh, did I mention that the duty ammo this company gives us is 9mm SWC? I think that should tell you something.

There’s no way, on my best day, that I could hit a Mozambique drill at 25 yards with this stupid thing, hell, it was issued to me brand new, it has less than 150 rounds through it, it’s not even broken in yet. I put 1000 through my 1911 in just the first week I had it.

Then on top of that, like I said, tired, cold and wet and wanting coffee, shower and sleep before work, I was having grip issues, I was trigger slapping. It was just friggin miserable performance on my part.

Now the topper, I have to clean it.

Who was the tiny fingered homo pansy that designed the take down system on this fuckin thing? I can’t hardly get the fucking buttons down, because they’re so small, I can’t get my fingers engaged properly. Twist and turn and pull and push and swear like the sailor I was 25 years ago and I finally get it apart. It took me longer to take it down than it did to actually clean and lube it.

Did I mention how much I hate Glocks yet?

I actually enjoy cleaning my 1911; I even enjoy cleaning my AR. Cleaning a Glock? Fuck Glocks and the gay cross-dressing cocksucker that invented them, that miserable bastard wouldn’t make a pimple on John Moses Browning’s ass. Not even the scent of Hoppe’s could make this better. Come on guys, you all know that the only thing on this planet the smells better than Hoppe’s is Brigid’s kitchen and still, not even that could possibly make me forget the sheer hatred I feel at taking down a fucking Glock.

Thank the Goddess that’s over and done now. It’s all cleaned and lubed up with Brian Enos’ Slide Glide lite and back in the holster. And sitting on the damn desktop because if anyone wants to shoot me, they have to get through 2 other guards with guns, plus 2 military guys with guns AND break down 2 magnetically locked steel doors. I think I might be ready for him by then.

Now since I mentioned it, you have tried Slide Glide haven’t you? My 1911 and AR cycle beautifully. I highly recommend it. I’ve been using it for a couple of months now and so far, it does everything Brian says it does.

Random Wrant

Well, April 15th has come and gone and there were Tea Parties all over the country. It was great to see everyone coming together and putting our rights to assembly into practice. It was also a wonderful thing to see how many people around this great Republic actually got off the couch and participated in making their voices heard at all levels of government.

While I was at work, I had a chance to see some of the talking heads at Fox debate this issue and wonder if it was a one time thing or the beginning of a real movement. For me, I hope this is the beginning of a real movement. The people finally waking up and realizing that they run this government and that they give the orders. I admit that most of what I write about here is related specifically to the Second Amendment, but there is so much more about the way our government operates that is just wrong.

It is time, past time indeed, for Americans to get together and tell the government to back off. That the taxes are oppressive, that illegal immigration is a crime and must be stopped, that we don’t want an acknowledged tax cheat to run the IRS and that in fact, we’d be better off without the damn IRS. That BATF should be a small mom and pop store and not a federal agency.

Most importantly, we want the government to stop lying to us. 90% of the weapons in Mexico are 100% Mexico’s problem. America is NOT going to stand for punishing law abiding citizens for another nation’s issues. Deal with your own shit Mexico; we have to rid ourselves of your citizens that are here illegally. We need to stop being so damn nice to people who want us dead. We need to be a hell of a lot less concerned about offending people and start doing what’s actually right for both the people and the nation. Raising taxes on business right now is just stupid. That’s the kind of shit that made them leave to begin with. Spending Trillions of dollars that you don’t actually have on stupid shit doesn’t stimulate anything except heartburn for the poor slobs that have to work their asses off to pay for this bullshit. How about you cut your damn spending down to the absolute minimum while you carefully craft a real plan rather than rush into some silliness that no one even had time to read before they voted on it?

You want to really stimulate the economy? Then get your pork greased fingers out of my fucking wallet and let me spend my money. Back off the taxes and create a business environment that businesses actually want to operate in. When the businesses do better, they grow; when they grow they employ more people, when more people have money they spend it thus creating demand for more products therefore, businesses grow. See how it works? And I don’t even have some stupid fucking degree. If I can see this and you can’t, then you’re just incompetent to hold office and you should resign.

Now I’ll tackle a gun control issue. The issue is simply this, don’t! Don’t even think about it. How can I say this? Simple actually. You see, people on both sides of this issue tend to concentrate on the Second Amendment of the US Constitution. What they tend to forget is that there are 50 individual states out there and most of them have a clause in their state constitution that is at least similar to Michigan’s Article 1 Section 6 which simply states: The people have the right to keep and bear arms for self defense and the defense of the state. How the hell can you even consider a “gun ban” when you have to try to change 51 different Constitutions? Then of course, you would have to assume that several million gun owning patriots are going to let you. I do believe that you may have heard the term Molon Labe before? If you have and you still don’t know what it means, you had better do some quality time with Google and find out.

You banners really should try changing tactics. I have a suggestion for you. Try leaving us alone. Try really hard to just shut up and go sit in the corner and not say anything to piss us off. We’re all Domestic Terrorists ya know…DHS says so. How many times can you poke a dog with a stick before he bites you? How many times can you jump into a Polar Bear cage before you get mauled? What’s it going to take for you to get it? We have a right to our guns which is protected by Constitutional Amendments at both State and Federal levels. You possess no right to “feel” safe. You want to be safe, then you make yourself safe. Stop pissing your pants every time a firecracker pops. Either learn to defend yourself or submit to whatever cruelty life has in store for you and stop whining. You can’t have it both ways.

As for all the newly awakened citizens at the Tea Parties? Find out who your elected weasel is and get in his/her/it’s face and stay there. Don’t stop at one day of protests, we can’t let them forget who’s really in charge around here. It’s your country fellow citizens, take it back!

A Couple of Tips

I spotted a couple of tips at Hecate's Crossroad and it's a good idea to review them. You need to keep in mind that the first priority in your daily journey is to be aware of your surroundings.

Happy Ostara

Many of you may scratch your heads at that title, but Easter is the Christian version of the ancient Pagan holiday of Ostara which was a celebration of the coming of Springtime and the beginning of the planting season. It is the time of the year when all which "died" under the cold and snow of winter is reborn to live and bloom again.

I hope you will all take a moment today to reflect upon what this day means to you in a spiritual sense. Regardless of your spiritual path, today represents many wonderful things. Take time to honor them all.

I pray to the Lord and Lady that your new year will be filled with joy and happiness.

Blessed Be to all of my wonderful friends.

I give extra thanks to the lord and lady for each one of you, without you, I would not be who and what I am today and I am so thankful for what each of you has taught me, no matter how trivial it may seem to you, that you took the effort with me is a priceless gift that I will honor to my grave.

Help Wanted

OK folks, here's the quick and dirty.

I have been thinking about doing some of my own reloading for a while now. As much as I love to shoot, it would save me money.

What brings this post about is that in the not too distant past, I acquired 1200 pieces of once fired Lake City 5.56 NATO brass. The deal was too damn good to pass up since it involved my 2nd favorite "F" word. So now, I have this brass all ready to be tumbled and reloaded and I need some sources for solid reliable how to type info.

I'm looking at a single stage Lee set up that runs about $90 at Cabela's since I'm going to be at one in a couple weeks.

So, who can help me find reliable how to type information? What am I going to run into with the primers? I heard there's a trick to working with military brass.

New Cold War?

I'm beginning to think so but this time, the opposition is not Soviet Russia, it's Congress. Shrieker Pelosi (Socialist-PRK) has already announced her plan for nationwide registration.

If you're still reading this, just know that I guess I'm about to become a criminal because I will NOT comply.

ΜΟΛΩΝ ΛΑΒΕ motherfucker! I will not be pushed any farther.

He Bowed?

I am damn near speechless with rage. So much so, that I'm going to let Breda say it for me.

What kind of Moron did you sheeple elect? He gave DVD's to the British Prime Minister, oh, did we forget to mention that due to electronic coding, they're useless in Great Britain? He gave the Queen of England an IPod? He even let Michelle actually make physical contact? With the Queen of England? Is this some kind of fucking joke? He tells the Fwench that Americans are a little arrogant? Gee ya think Barry? We only saved their surrender-monkey asses in 2 World Wars, I think we may have earned that right where they're concerned.

Let's not wait the 4 years, let's vote this nit wit out of office before America is a bigger laughingstock than it was before he got elected.
