So the one consistent piece of feedback I have been receiving both on the last post and on the Facebooks / Twitters is that I should go larger – put a wider-diameter (and generally heavier) round down-range.
At first glance, that seems reasonable – I am attempting to combat wind and ensure a bullet maintains velocity at distance, and denser things do that. In firearm parlance, “denser” generally (and I do only mean “generally”) [...]
This is going to be another one of those posts wherein the backstory may or probably will not be explained. You are just going to have to deal with that.
Speaking on a personal level, I will never again do business with a company called “Texas AK Designs”, who are now apparently owned by / part of “Canis Design Group”. From my own personal experience, their shipping department is substandard, their customer service is [...]
By now, most of my readers have probably seen this image, along with the various other ones floating around all branded with the Brady Campaign’s logo:
Said image’s text reading, "A rape can last 30 seconds but a murder lasts for ever. Guns are not the answer." For the Googles.
And, like most of my readers, I saw the image and immediately dismissed it as a parody – oh, to be certain, [...]
… and now “shall be punished otherwise, in such manner as the Legislature may prescribe.” No, seriously.
After yesterday’s post documenting how James Yeager is a coward, not based on his actions in Iraq, but rather his actions here in America, I was planning on leaving this whole topic alone for the foreseeable future, but this is just too much comedic gold to pass up. As was pointed out to me by WizardPC, dueling [...]
I have rightfully “had beef” with the Second Amendment Foundation’s borderline illegal “fundraising” campaigns, but the truth of the matter is that they get the job done when it comes to protecting and preserving our Second-Amendment-protected rights. So head on over to their Facebook page and give them a “Like” – that, at least, will not put you on their to-spam list, and I feel certain we can get their numbers higher than the Brady [...]
A little over a month ago, I made the following comment in response to the "gun violence" candle-light vigils anti-rights cultists held and attended:
One interesting side-effect from not making this distinction is that by holding their candle-light vigils for “victims of ‘gun violence’”, the Brady Campaign and their sycophants are, by definition, memorializing those murderers, rapists, thieves, muggers, robbers, home-invaders, and other scumbags who were shot down in self-defense by their intended victims, [...]
By now, regular readers of my weblog should be familiar with the name “Baldr Odinson” – that spineless, dishonest, cowardly troll who so very much hates it when his own methodologies and tricks are used against him (speaking of, I need to put his poll back up at some point). Regular readers of the pro-rights community would also be aware that Baldr Odinson condoned, if not outright supported, the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence’s vicious, [...]
Being somewhat goofy looking, having a non-symmetrical face, possessing the stereotypical pasty-whiteness of my ethnic background, and so forth, I generally try to refrain from making fun of people for the way they look.
The way they dress, however? Well, that is entirely a matter of choice, and while I have no shortage of appreciation for outlandish styles and resurrected trends (well, except anything from the ’70s), even I have to draw the line [...]
… But I am proud to have been the one to stand up and point it out.
[2330 18MAY11 Update]
Since it has come to my attention that the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence has seen fit to further viciously and maliciously lie about my behavior in this incident on their Facebook page, I thought I would set the record straight. Below is a screencap of the email I sent Twitter:
I am currently testing out the Apture… functionality… on “wotc” – highlight some text, give it a second or two, and it will do an inline search for you, both here and across the cortex. Likewise, when you scroll down, a toolbar shows up at the top of the page allowing you to link the page to various social systems, as well as search my entire site… and unlike the last widget I tested, you [...]
One interesting byproduct of the recent problems I have been having with my RSS feeds and Google Reader is that I realized I have 106 folks subscribed to my main feed, with another 93 subscribed to the various other forms and flavors it takes (with the majority using my old Atom and RSS links). In short, 199 individuals keep up with my weblog on a daily basis (by way of Google Reader – I have [...]
