hava fundraiser and endo apparel

By now, everyone who reads this site should be familiar with Everyday, No Days Off, and if you are not already reading his site, you are doing yourself a rather significant disservice. Likewise, regular readers should be aware that ENDO has his own apparel line, given that I have only posted about them a few times, and even worn one of the shirts in my famous-on-the-internet video: […]

quote of the day – theodore roosevelt

There is not much I can add to this quote from Theodore Roosevelt provided by The Art of Manliness:

If a public man tries to get your vote by saying that he will do something wrong in your interest, you can be absolutely certain that if ever it becomes worth his while he will do something wrong against your interest.

Unfortunately, the kinds of folks who most need to learn […]

honoring those who honor our best

By now, you should be more than aware that the folks at Crimson Trace Corporation are, quite frankly, awesome – they were one of the largest supporters of my Soldiers’ Angels Fundraiser, and donated an honestly amazing amount of equipment to it.

With that history in mind, this news release, courtesy of their Media Relations Manager and Chief Head-Licker Iain Harrison, should come as no surprise […]

the starbucks buycott

I do not drink coffee, but I appreciate companies that respect our individual rights to self-defense and self-preservation, and I further enjoy reminding anti-rights cultists how increasingly irrelevant they are making themselves; thankfully, Starbucks sells some stuff other than coffee:

The barista manning our local Starbucks seemed completely unfazed by my People of the Gun ballcap, and she commented to the customer before me […]

it is not intolerance when martha boggs does it

By and large, Better Half and I do not make it into downtown Knoxville very often; neither of us are overly fond of cities, I do not like driving on confined streets, and the parking situation down there… well, it is a topic for another post, especially since I just had to send the Knoxville Police Department $16 for not parking aft-in when the need to do so was not posted anywhere Better Half or […]

crimson trace corporation and soldiers’ angels, the sequel

Remember what I said about the firearm-owning community being astonishingly generous?

Yeah, it keeps happening. I just got this email from Iain Harrison at Crimson Trace:

Figured I’d up the ante on the fundraiser. I’m shipping you a Lasergrip for the Glock Gen 4, models 19 & 23. It hasn’t been released from production yet, but what the hell, right?

Take a look for yourself – every last […]

militec and soldiers’ angels

One thing that has never stopped impressing me about the firearm-owning / pro-rights community is how very generous they are – they encourage you shoot their firearms with their ammunition, they help out in the community, they volunteer their time at local ranges and clubs, they educate children about the safe and enjoyable use of firearms, and now they are massively supporting an outstanding cause

Speaking of generosity, I do […]

dragon leatherworks and soldiers’ angels

Despite having only announced my Soldiers’ Angels Fundraiser and Giveaway a week ago, and despite that week including a long holiday weekend, the gunblogger community has already donated $355 to that outstanding organization (you can keep up with the donations with the ticker near the top of the left column on my site).

However, it is now my distinct pleasure and honor to sweeten the pot a little […]

pleasantly unexpected

If I were to be bluntly, brutally honest, I would describe BSA Optics‘ products as "affordable, functional, but nothing special", at least from my own personal experience. They get the job done, and they are great for people with limited budgets, but there can be concerns about long-term reliability, and some of their stuff just screams "tacticool to excess!"

A few years back, I purchased a 2005-era BSA RMDS Multi-Dot reflex sight […]

how people react

In situations wherein people are vicitmized by crime, have you ever seen anti-rights nuts come together to support the survivors, families, and friends? Certainly, they will come together to to try to enact more laws, and further infringe on the rights of the people who did not commit the crimes, and demonize inanimate objects, and so forth… but when it comes right down to it, the victims are scant more than a vehicle for the […]
