Bullethead Of The Month

July's Bullethead of the Month goes to two people! The race for anti-gun chief buffoon for this month is split between the mayor of Washington DC, Adrian Fenty, for his pathetic refusal to obey the law as handed down by the Supreme Court in the Heller decision, and obstruction and delay of implementing the right to keep and bear arms in the district.

Sharing this month's dishonor is the hysteric anti-gun Representative Carolyn McCarthy. Her office had a political opponent and pro-gun rights advocate arrested and his guns were confiscated because he dared appear at one of her local offices to make his voice heard as our constitution guarantees. Another heavy handed attempt by a politician to silence those who disagree with their anti-American and anti-freedom views.

Please call or write either of these two and laugh at them. Loud and long public ridicule is one way to clear the political landscape from hoodlums in high office. Do it. For the children.......

Haw Haw!! Lookee Here....















I was doing some research and wanted to go to the website of the DC government. They're a transmission site for malware and trojans!!!! Haw Haw Haw! You worthless pieces infect computers and try to deny constitutional rights! How like them, whether they know about it or not. It's not just now either, for the last ninety days they've been examined by google crawlers and they're infecting anyone who logs into the site. How choice is the irony. A sinister city leadership letting their website transmit sinister things to unwitting visitors. Whatta larf. Corruptocrats corrupting computers...........

Whhaa?! Kim's Calling It Quits??!!

Kim Du Toit posted today that as of December 1, 2008 he will no longer blog. His two sites, KDuT.com and Geopolitics will stay up for copyright purposes, but he won't add new material. All other sites will disappear. The Gun Thing forum and others will dissolve into the ether.

Lots of info will be gone and an excellent source of political and social commentary is leaving as well.

I've gotten a couple of responses from him about gun things and it's sad to see a trusted source disappear.

I'll just have to spend more time at Firearmstalk.com....

Cuil!

Found a new search engine. "Cuil." I've already made it my default search engine. No more "evil" google or "can't be bothered for patriotic American holidays" yahoo!

Check it out here. They claim they don't collect info on the searchers, just what you're searching for. Uh oh. Bad news for China. (and Microsoft, and google, and yahoo!, and totalitarian thug governments, and....)

Heh! Ah, Shoot! Banned In Pakistan....

Church Gun Giveaway Horrifies Media

Enemy Press Network CNN posts a story out of Oklahoma City's KOCO .com concerning a local church's planned gun giveaway.

Reporters are suitably shocked by the idea of kids and churches being mixed up with guns. According to the video on the site, the station was clued into this story by an apparently disgruntled ex member of the church. Guess he/she didn't think that protecting yourself has anything to do with religion.

Turns out that the pastor who runs the giveaway isn't able to attend, so the gun will be kept until next year. Only at the end of the video, and not included in the text story, is the reason for the gun event explained. The pastor is an ex green beret who wants to educate kids about the safe, appropriate use of firearms. Guess they thought it wasn't important to put in that little tidbit until the end. That little tidbit being the most important part of the story. Gun safety.

Leave it to the Enemy Press to try to denigrate a church for doing something more organizations should do. Gun safety and training is everyone's business. Most likely they were just afraid of the fact that Christians might be willing to use guns to protect themselves from crime and tyranny instead of being docile sheep to be slaughtered.

Gun Show Thoughts

So I went to the local gunshow yesterday, not to do anything but look for ammo and maybe fingerprint a few guns.

It was rather empty at the center, I guess the Fourth must have had an effect on attendance. I've never seen one so sparsely attended.

I was able to look around without much obstruction anyway, so at least that part was good. Unfortunately there seemed to be only one large ammo supplier there. They had what I was looking for so I filled my ammo needs.

Another reason for going was to take a look at a few handguns to see what was about in 9mm. As seen in this thread, I was searching for a Walther P38 to see what they feel like in hand. I wasn't expecting to find any because I've never seen them before. So, of course, I find at least ten between three or four vendors, P38s and P1s. They aren't as heavy as I thought they would be. After examining them I could see that the postwar P38s do have alloy frames, guess that answers that question. They felt ok in my hand but not as comfortably as I hoped they would. Maybe the wartime grips would feel better. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to handle one of those so I can't compare them.

I also looked around for whatever 9s were for sale. I found a Browning Hi Power that I immediately picked up, and nearly as immediately put back down. Now JMB is considered a saint by many in the firearms community, and I'm not going to debate that fact, but sadly, the Hi Power just didn't feel good in my hand. What an unhappy feeling it was finally holding a classic firearm and knowing the grip was too uncomfortable to use!

There were plenty of plastiguns around but they just don't appeal to me. I kept perusing the tables and found another of Browning's creations: the venerable 1911. I actually found two specimens in the show, one was a Colt, apparently dated 1913 that had been parkerized recently, for $995, and a Remington Rand for $1200, dated 1943, which appeared to be in its original configuration. With trepidation, having been disappointed with the much lauded Hi Power, I picked one up to see how it felt. It felt good. It felt very good. The 1911 is truly God's Own Sidearm! Man! Some day I gots to get me one of these! Some day wasn't today however....

I wandered around and found the Rock Island Armory clone out of the Philippines at a couple of different vendors tables. They look so right, but feel so wrong. Durn it, but they don't feel comfortable in my hand. The grip was hurting my second finger. Not very much, but enough to be noticeable. I picked up an officers length and it wasn't much better. The magazine wasn't in it, but the grip seemed too short. Too bad, for the price it might be something worth trying.

That was about the extent of my handgun search. I still keep looking at each show for that one longarm to steal. Winchesters are still too high. The least expensive I found was an 80s vintage 94 for $499. Dirty, bad wood, worn bluing. Gah!

There was one levergun I found which, although out of my price range, looked good for its age. It was a tube fed Marlin chambered in .32. I can't for the life of me find one online anywhere to get info on it. The tag said it was manufactured in 1889. It looked good, really good and I was, sad to say, forced to put it back. I tried to console myself by looking at some milsurps and I stumbled on an Enfield No III for $245. Right next to it was a No 4 Mk I for $145. I almost pulled the trigger on the number four but just couldn't justify a new caliber.

It was nearing the end of the show and I was wandering around taking a last look about when I saw it. An unscrewed up, uncut, unchopped, unbubba'd Krag! Wow! It seemed to be in pristine condition, or it's been restored. I hesitatingly looked at the tag and saw it was for sale for only $725. The metal looked good, the wood looked good. There must have been a catch somewhere. I found it very, very hard to keep my visa in my wallet, but I had to. Even finding an apparently original condition Krag wasn't enough to get me to increase the debt load. Maybe I should get another job.....

Fairly typical gun show. Too many non gun or firearms related vendors. That gets tiring seeing jerky vendors, garlic-olive sellers, glassware, silverware, and toy sellers. Guess the days of gun sellers being the main vendors at gun shows are long over, if they ever existed.

Ya-hoos Poll

It looks like the sharp political minds at Yahoo! and the Enemy Press AP thought it'd be nice to get the top ten descriptions of the presumptive nominees for president.

Here's what was said about John McCain:

1. Old 19%

2. Military service 9%

3. Record, qualifications 8%

4. Bush 7%

5. Strength 7%

6. Insider, politician 7%

7. Iraq, terrorism 6%

8. Honest 5%

9. Republican 5%

10. (tie) Moral/good and dishonest 4%

Hmm, looks like trying to tie McCain to the President isn't working all that well. We see that the Enemy Press is pushing the old angle as we see constant referral to his age in nearly every story about him.

Now for the commun, er Obama's description:

1. Outsider, change 20%

2. Lack of experience 13%

3. Dishonest 9%

4. Inspiring 8%

5. Liberal 6%

6, 7 (tie). Obama's race, young 6%

8. Not likable 5%

9. Intelligent 4%

10. Muslim 3%

Well, we see here that the ultimate Chicago machine insider is duping quite a large percentage of the people surveyed. We also see that despite the push by the Enemy Press, a good number of people see him, rightly, as having no experience and dishonest to boot. His dishonest number is double McCains.

What, if anything, this means at the moment is left to be seen. Most likely those who hate liberty will use this information to try to bury McCains positives and Obama's negatives in a desperate attempt to foist an America hating, filthy red on us. The power of the press is still great enough that it just might work.
