I posted last week about the four guns I was considering for my next purchase. Well, while looking around, I came across this little gem. A Walther PPQ with it’s 4 inch barrel and 15 shot magazine. Looks pretty sweet, and the trigger everyone says, is amazing.
I really need to find a range that rents different types of guns, so I can try all of my options out.
Cracker Barrel’s mission is Pleasing People. We operate within the ideals of fairness, mutual respect and equal treatment of all people. These ideals are the core of our corporate culture.
We continue to offer Duck Commander products in our stores.
We removed selected products which we were concerned might offend some of our guests while we evaluate the situation.
Mutual respect? What a silly thing to say. They made a decision that will please some folks and offend others. Had they chosen differently, they would have gotten similar results, just in reverse. I am really tired of this fake sensitivity. Cracker Barrel knew they would offend fans of Duck Dynasty by pulling merchandise, but, to Cracker Barrel, offending Christians, and those of us sick of bullies like GLAAD, is obviously preferable to offending publicity whores. In an effort not to offend, Cracker Barrel ends up offending many more people. I really wish these corporations would start realizing that appeasing emotional terrorists, yes, GLAAD, that would be you, is not a worthwhile aim.
And no, I man not going to boycott Cracker Barrel over this. First I have a strong distaste for boycotts no matter who does them. Secondly, I have been boycotting Cracker Barrel for years over their horrible food.
CHINA – a 38-year-old man leaped to his death after an argument with his girlfriend who insisted they continue shopping. CCTV captured Tao Hsiao and his girlfriend in a mall in Xuzhou, Jiangsu province, east China where they had reportedly been shopping for five hours or so before he hit his limit.
Eyewitnesses said Hsiao could be heard telling his girlfriend that they already had more bags than they could carry, but she insisted on hitting one more store where there was a sale on shoes.
An eyewitness said: “He told her she already had enough shoes, more shoes that she could wear in a lifetime, and it was pointless buying any more. She started shouting at him, accusing him of being a skinflint, and of spoiling Christmas. It was a really heated argument.”
The argument continued until Hsiao threw the bags on the floor and himself over the balcony, dropping seven stories to his death and smashing Christmas decorations on the way down. He was killed on impact.
A spokesman for the mall said: “His body was removed fairly quickly. He actually landed on one of the stalls below and then fell to the floor so although the store was damaged it meant he didn’t hit anybody.
“This is a tragic incident, but this time of year can be very stressful for many people.”
I mentioned previously I purchased a new handgun, a Sig Sauer P250 .45 compact a couple of weeks ago. I have now been to the range twice, and after 200 rounds I can say I LOVE THIS GUN! It is accurate, the sights are super easy and once I really got the feel of the trigger action, it is a blast to shoot. It is the most accurate, and the easiest to field strip and clean, and reassemble of any gun I have ever owned. In short the gun is simple, and crafted to perform. It feels better in my hand every time I fire it.
In appreciation for the fine work Sig Arms does, I am making Sig Sauer the OFFICIAL gun maker of The Daley Gator. Maybe they will hire me to go over tp Switzerland one day to test fire their weapons? Yeah, I know a guy can dream though. Of fine arms, and hot Swiss gals!
Off to the gun range here in about an hour or so, and I have been looking to buy a new gun, actually, I am looking at selling my Taurus PT140. 40 S&W and putting that money into a new gun, specifically a Sig Sauer P250 .40 S&W compact. My problem is this. I love the Taurus, I have put 2500 rounds or so through it at the range, with no problems at all. But a few weeks ago, I ran into a buddy at the range, a retired police officer, he had a Sig P250 .45ACP and let me shoot it. And, to my surprise, I was more accurate with it than my Taurus, plus I loved the feel of the gun. Another plus is that the P250’s are modular. you can change grips, calibers, and sizes, full size to compact, to sub-compact. Here is a video explaining
Pretty cool. I like that the Sig has a 13 round magazine, my Taurus has a 10 round magazine. I would also have to buy extra magazines for the Sig, and they run in the $40 range. The Sig is a tad bigger but feels great in my hand. Since the gun is largely for concealed carry size dos matter, a 3.9 inch barrel vs my Taurus 3.25 inch barrel. And, I know Sig Sauer has a great reputation for quality. So, there is my dilema, stick with my Taurus, or switch to a Sig. Any thoughts?
Found this idiocy at American Power Foreskin Pride marches? By Gay men without pants on? Just when you thought the Left could not get any goofier! Here is the video, you will laugh, you will say WTF often, you will wonder if this is a SNL skit, you WILL learn the difference between good naked, and BAD naked and you might even get nauseous. Personally, I think the goofy bastard in the video just likes running around half-naked. Seriously dude, put some pants on
WARNING, the video contains nudity, and oppressed penises, oppressed foreskin, and oppressed douche bags without pants on, viewer discretion is advised
The Canadian Foreskin Awareness Project (CAN-FAP) Sexual Revolutionary Art Division presents this heroic video of CAN-FAP’s heroic marching contingent in the 2012 Vancouver Pride Parade, featuring the world premiere of the heroic Foreskin Pride Salute!
The Foreskin Pride Salute was created and performed by CAN-FAP founder Glen Callender, who hopes that genitally whole males around the world will adopt this salute to show their Foreskin Pride and stand up to thousands of years of anti-foreskin prejudice and persecution. FORESKIN PRIDE
Anderson Cooper weighs in on a nude, 9-foot gargoyle that’s causing a giant controversy in one small town. “I hate Ken dolls,” the artist comments. “It just seemed like it needed to be there.” “It” being anatomically correct genitalia, scaled to a 9-foot tall humanoid.
John Carey reports that he is finding 9 mm easier to find, I can say the same about .40 so, those are good signs.
Over the past two weeks I’ve noticed that handgun ammo shelves at my favorite sporting goods stores are beginning to fill up again with popular calibers. It appears the great guns and ammo crisis of 2013 may actually be coming to an end; at least until the next panic buying kicks in
The key to making this last is to pace yourself when purchasing ammo. If everyone buys a little at a time to fill their stockpile we all win.
I have been getting to the range 1-2 times a week since getting my Taurus .40 S&W earlier this year, the only thing holding me back is the continued shortage of ammo. So far I have put maybe 1200 rounds through it, and am finally really comfortable with the guns recoil, sighting, and the feel for it. I actually do a bit better if I focus more on just aiming rather than using just the sights. Today was my best day by far, getting much better accuracy from 15 yards 45 out of 50 shots in the target (7-10 areas) and from 3 yards, 30 shots and 7 yards, 50 shots, I am in the center 8-10 area every shot with most in the 9-10 areas.
Here is a sample target, if I had a better phone, I could post a picture, I pretty much wore out the target today. Since my Taurus .40 is for concealed carry/home defense, I also have a Smith and Wesson Sig .357 for home defense, I am quite confident in my ability to hit what I aim at in a vital area. Now I pray I never have to fire in self-defense, but if I do, I want to be prepared and proficient.
By the way, just so Crazy Uncle Joe Biden feels better, I also have a Mossberg 12 gauge pump shotgun.
Right now my right wrist and lower forearm are swollen up, and damn painful, this has been happening lately, in both my hands and wrists. I have no idea what the cause is, but typing is, well, not helpful, so, I am hoping it is better by morning or I might have to miss work and go back to the doctor. He thinks it might be some form of Carpal Tunell, but is not sure. The anti inflammatories should kick in soon, I hope. And there is so much I am itching to write about. Maybe tomorrow.
Well, I guess that bumper sticker works about as well as any other liberal strategy to curb violence. Matt has the story
You’ve seen that “coexist” logo. It’s on bumper stickers, and I saw it on a co-worker in t-shirt form today. Well, in a turn of complete irony, it was on a certain car the other night, the one car-jacked by the Muslim Bombers had a “coexist” sticker. Just a Conservative Girl has the pic…
The moral of the story? You cannot “coexist” with murderers and fanatics. Further you cannot curb violence with stupid bumper stickers, empty slogans, useless laws, or by limiting the rights of the law-abiding to defend themselves.
Coming soon to a convenience store near you: Vuse, an electronic cigarette that delivers nicotine without the use of tobacco and is benefiting from the combined marketing power of R.J. Reynolds and state government regulators.
Reynolds is testing the Vuse brand e-cigarette in limited distribution and is expected to roll it out nationwide.
In anticipation of Reynolds’ first effort in the e-cigarette market, the company’s lobbyists are pushing laws at the state level that could add costs, paperwork and headaches onto smaller competitors that have largely served the e-cigarette market so far.
More worrisome is that the online activities of thousands of e-cigarette consumers, who are looking for a tar-free alternative to smoking, could be effectively outlawed.
In particular, a bill passed by the Oklahoma state Senate on March 6 could boost the price of e-cigarettes by restricting online sales and preventing retailers from selling to consumers without going through a wholesale middleman first.
“We really feel this is a push by Big Tobacco to gain some more control over the market,” said Rob Ragan, owner of VaporKings, a store with four locations in and around Tulsa selling e-cigarette kits and related accessories, also called vapor products. Ragan estimates that there are about 45 such stores throughout the state that would be affected by this legislation, SB 802.
I have been looking for a new gun specifically designed for concealed carry, something small, but powerful. After looking at several local shops, and several Academy Sports, I narrowed my choices and last Friday, I went to the Academy in Arlington, and bought my newest gun. Yes, Liberals I own four handguns, two shotguns, and some rifles, you Liberals would call that an “arsenal”. Anyway, the gun I opted for is this. The Taurus Millenium Pro 140 .40 S&W Polymer Pistol in stainless steel.
It has a 10-shot magazine, the gun comes with two, two safeties, including a locking mechanism that disables the gun entirely, and a loaded chamber indicator. Being a .4o caliber it has sufficient power, and weighs only 18.7 ounces with a 3.25 ” barrel. I am taking it to the range over the next few days so I will get back to y’all on how it does
Australia’s National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) has just declared that children should no longer be allowed to blow out candles on birthday cakes at parties. The official guidelines state:
‘To prevent the spread of germs when the child blows out the candles, parents should either provide a separate cupcake, with a candle if they wish, for the birthday child.’
Love Andrew Klavan, he is one of my favorite thinkers. if you blame TV, or video games, consider that millions play video games, and very, very few ever go out and go on killing sprees. If these games “caused” violent outbursts, there would be many many more of these acts. The fact is so many WANT to blame something, anything other than the killer.
I would argue that eventually, the Left wishes to ban all guns, then other instruments of “violence” like knives. Of course, they would not go after all knives first. No, they would treat that as they did with guns, Dianne Feinstein wants to have a new assault weapons ban”, because the first one was a complete flop, and Democrats LOVE to reintroduce failed policies, because that is being progressive or something. So, just as Democrats will start with guns that look mean,they would start with knives that look mean too.
A&E doctors are calling for a ban on long pointed kitchen knives to reduce deaths from stabbing.
A team from West Middlesex University Hospital said violent crime is on the increase – and kitchen knives are used in as many as half of all stabbings.
They argued many assaults are committed impulsively, prompted by alcohol and drugs, and a kitchen knife often makes an all too available weapon.
The research is published in the British Medical Journal.
The researchers said there was no reason for long pointed knives to be publicly available at all.
Hmmm, in the UK they started with gun control, and now………….. Ultimately, they will run out of weapons to ban, so they will get around to criminalizing self-defense.
Because our letter-writer has been reduced to asking her mom for money, we’re going to assume that she’s not very well off and she’s a bargain hunter. On Amazon.com, one can purchase a fishbowl filled with a variety pack of 144 Durex brand condoms for $25.89. Assuming she’d use one condom per day every single day between the ages of 12 and 52, that only equals $2,624.96 for 14,600 Durex condoms. For those of you who aren’t great at math, $2,624.96 is far less than $18,000. She’d have to be using around four or five condoms a day for 40 years for that number to even approach $18,000.
Suppose our cash-strapped friend prefers to use the birth control pill instead of condoms. In 41 states, she can get the pill for $9 a month at a Target or Walmart. That totals $108 per year, and $108 multiplied by 40 is $4,320, which still winds up less than $18,000. In the nine other states, the cost per month is around $30, which reaches around $14,400 over 40 years. These figures assume that our letter-writer plans on using birth control pills over the full length of time that she is able to get pregnant.
Using birth control every single day for 40 years, a slut’s total cost is still not $18,000 in a lifetime. So even if she’s putting out like a Pez dispenser — and, after all, she’s a Democrat, IYKWIMAITYD — she’ll have plenty of cash left over for vodka and Newports.
