Back when I was much younger — and, as a result, much more foolish — I owned and rode a motorcycle. It wasn’t the fact that I rode motorcycles that made me foolish. It was the fact that I thought I was somehow exempt from the cliché, “You ride ‘em, you wreck ‘em,” or, more commonly, “It’s not if you’ll be in an accident, but when.”
My ignorance of this warning resulted in not properly preparing for the day that I would be in an accident myself. As a result, when I did have an accident, I was wearing safety gear but was not prepared with how to deal with a last-second cut off, the result of bad judgment from a typical four-wheel driver. Now I have to forever live with the consequences of my failure to prepare by losing the use of my right arm.
I don’t intend to make the same mistake with firearms.
Spend enough time around firearms and you WILL experience accidental and, quite likely, negligent discharges. Many YouTube gun channels have
In the east, many states have already fallen to tyranny, New York being the most obvious example. But here in the west, save for California, we’ve been holding out fairly well.
But of all the western states, if I had to choose the next to fall, I would not in a thousand years have thought Texas would be it. Though my personal experience is by no means scientific and can hold no related conclusion, it certainly seems like I hear more stories like this coming out of Texas than I do coming from California. And that honestly shocks me.
This is relatively old news, but the addition of two dash cam videos plus the recent judgment against the man being illegally detained and arrested in this video brings new perspective. And that perspective (at least my perspective) is that too many
So Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder recently made his backwards attitude regarding gun control very public during an interview with some surfer dude… well, not just ANY surfer dude. This was Mark Richards, four-time world surfing champion.
Of course, by Dianne Feinstein’s standard, Mark’s interview doesn’t count as journalism, so I guess we can just go ahead and ignore it. But I’m one of those weirdos that believes in a free press, so let’s go ahead and take a look at this, shall we?
You’ve no doubt heard of the Mozambique drill. But what about the Stuzambique drill?
If you’ve never heard of it, that’s because I just made it up. But I’ll give you a hint as to what it entails. The Dim Mak (death touch) is a secret martial arts move that can supposedly kill a man with a mere touch. Well, the Stuzambique is not a Dim Mak. It’s more like a, um, well…
Why is it that every game of Truth or Dare I participate in seems to end up like this?
BECAUSE I REFUSE TO LOSE!
Seems like I’ve read this warning in every firearm owner’s manual I’ve looked in, but it’s worth reminding. Always, ALWAYS inspect each round that you load into your magazines, clips, etc.
If you hang around guns long enough, you’re going to come across a bad cartridge. Most of the time the defects are minor and might not even cause any sort of problem if you miss it. But sometimes, well, just take a look…
After being delayed several months, Sig Sauer finally started shipping their recently announced P227.
As soon as Sig announced that they were shipping this bad boy, I went on the prowl by calling half a dozen gun shops in Utah. After several weeks, I was finally able to find one at Get Some Guns & Ammo. Unfortunately, Get Some is some 270 miles away from me in Orem, Utah. Fortunately, I travel to Orem once a month for business (actually my wife’s business, but I always go with her for support).
So, what do I think? Well, you’ll just have to watch my
Things are so bad now, with one government scandal after another being exposed, that you might think it’s IMPOSSIBLE for anyone to continue supporting Obama — or any part of government for that matter — right?
In November of 2012, a friend asked me, “You don’t think people are stupid enough to vote for Obama again do you?”
I laughed and replied, “Are you kidding? These are the same people that gave Bush a second term. They’re stupid enough.”
They were. And many still are. If you still have any faith left in the American public, watch this and have that faith destroyed:
One method that both sides of the gun argument use to prove their respective points is manipulated statistics. Remember, “90% of people support universal background checks”? That number was largely obtained by limiting available responses to leading questions. Followup polls completely obliterated the myth, proving the conclusions of the original poll to be complete lies.
Or how about this one, that gets repeated so oft with so much smugness that it just makes me cry — because I’m laughing so hard:
