As previously mentioned, I will unfortunately not be attending SHOT Show this year… however, as a recent anonymous coward reminded me, one of my Eastern Tennessee Monster Hunter International patches is still up for grabs for those lucky folks who are going. What do you have to do to earn this patch? Simple:
To all you lucky bastards going to SHOT Show this year, take heed! I have a few Eastern TN Monster Hunter [...]
Considering that my posts documenting how James Yeager is a coward and how he violated the Tennessee constitution are getting an unusual amount of traffic in recent days, I thought I would take a brief moment to comment on Yeager’s most recent bout of mind-numbing stupidity wherein he stated, "If it goes one inch further, I’m going to start killing people!".
First, just like the Sandy Hook Elementary School murderer, James Yeager is not [...]
Now, see, this is a position I can respect:
I have open carried when I was not legally allowed to conceal but prefer to conceal when I can. I have found that it is just easier to go about your day and interact with people when they have no knowledge of you having a firearm. First impressions are important and cannot be erased. Many develop a poor perception of someone when they appear with [...]
It is disappointing when an ostensibly pro-rights forum sinks to engaging in reasoned discourse simply because the member in question had the temerity to question a supposedly pro-rights organization’s stance on open carry in Texas. Unfortunately, this behavior does not appear to be unprecedented at the forum in question.
It is even more disappointing when an ostensibly pro-rights competitive shooter and low-grade attention whore sides with two grade-A attention whores* when they decided to [...]
So here is how it is.
A website called “Smoke & Thunder” appeared out of the firmament about a week ago and started hijacking names and reputations of pro-rights webloggers in order to provide a good, firm footing of astroturf for this upstart site. When challenged on this dickish and generally frowned-upon behavior, the mind behind “Smoke and Thunder” engaged in personal attacks against those who dared to question it. And, finally, when taken [...]
Well, this whole Martha Boggs kicks Stacey Campfield out of her restaurant thing has been… enlightening, if nothing else.
Apparently, for some people, some discrimination is a-ok so long as they disagree with the person being discriminated against but it should be strictly, legally verboten in any situations they feel appropriate (in other words, logical/internal consistency fail), while those those same people (and others) have no problems misrepresenting other people’s positions and words.
This is [...]
A couple of rather disparate thoughts were rattling around my head for the past few days, but they did not completely congeal until I read this comment from Oliver Perry:
It was discussed, perhaps here, the notion that we are able to develop a shitstorm when something goes wrong, but the author could not recall an atta boy resulting in a built business.
I currently carry in a crossbreed, but my next holster will [...]
By now, you are probably well aware of the difficulties Paul Helinski, the president (?) of GunsAmerica and current sufferer of faragosis, is having comprehending how the internet works.
Well, just over two days ago, I issued the following challenge to my readers:
To all you lucky bastards going to SHOT Show this year, take heed! I have a few Eastern TN Monster Hunter International patches left, and I will send one patch, [...]
Well, it is fair to say the gunblogger community has finally come of age… not only do we have people skimming and siphoning off the community for their own profit, not only do we have people exploiting the community for their own gains, but we now have old-timers proclaiming their superiority solely through age. As such, I am inclined to agree with Peter on this one:
It’s time for another term for the pro-gun [...]
Paul Helinski, president of GunsAmerica, simply does not understand the Internet or how it works. This profound ignorance is rather surprising in this day and age, especially since he claims to have been using the “network of tubes” for the past 15 years or so, but being the gracious and generous person I am, I took it upon myself to try to correct this oversight yesterday.
Apparently, I was too late:
Alas, I [...]
I suppose I should be thankful that some things in this world will remain constant, no matter how much everything else around us changes.
It would appear as though wanna-be gunblogger and certified attention whore Robert Farago is still being a dick, and a rather ineffective one at that.
Color me surprised.
Someone who stoops to arbitrarily deleting comments and then lying about the content of those comments, misappropriating and misrepresenting others’ [...]
