… 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 promise I will give you all an honest-to-God after-action report, but that will have to come after typing has stopped hurting; until then, you can read the official-ish one here.
Better Half qualified as a Rifleman on Sunday, shooting a 211, 212, and 227, each score with a different rifle due to equipment failures, and hit the Redcoat target shingle every single time; I qualified as a Rifleman on Saturday, shooting a 210, [...]
Remember that video of me going to town with my Saiga-12? (I mean, it is only a few posts down from this one.)
Well, it turns out that single, solitary video, posted six days ago, has had more views than the 33 most-recent videos the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence Ownership put up… combined (and some of those videos have been up for four months now). Even better, neither "likes/dislikes" nor comments have [...]
Hm. I think I know that guy:
As my mother (who recently out-shot my father with his HK45, much to his chagrin) told some of our Boston relatives, this is what happens when you do not allow children to have realistic-looking toy guns in the house. Bear that in mind. (I still made ones out of LEGOs.)
And apparently I resemble Hugo Weaving. News to me. Though I can live with this [...]
You know you have had a birthday party at Oleg Volk’s when you come home with a small box full of .22 ammunition of various types, flavors, and loadings. A big thanks to Oleg, Peter, Miss D., WizardPC, Mrs. WizardPC, everyone else who showed up, and, of course, Better Half for putting together what was a thoroughly entertaining party.
With regards to the title, it would appear as though my recent modeling has convinced [...]
I had the distinct privilege of finally meeting the guy who used to guest write here and currently runs Guns, Cars, and Tech along with his current guest author, meeting Gremlin and his staff, Oleg Volk, meeting Chris from Archangel Industries (who apparently makes shiny kydex holsters, including clear OWB ones, which is an interesting thought indeed), shooting a hell of a lot of guns that were not all mine with ammunition that was not [...]
For me, the whole Martin/Zimmerman case is functionally over – the incident is being investigated, and if there is sufficient evidence to indicate that a murder transpired*, I have every reason to believe that Zimmerman will be charged, and that is exactly the way the system is supposed to work.
On the other hand, the fallout from this case has just begun, and I shudder to think how far the ripples will travel.
A little over two years ago, I noticed an individual knocking around Say Uncle‘s digs whose comments were well-thought-out, reasonable, and remarkably poignant, but whose username lacked any link to any personal weblog. Being the occasionally-generous person I am, I inquired if he was interested in guest-authoring here at "walls of the city".
This morning, bright and early, WizardPC announced that he was heading off into the wilderness on his own, by way of [...]
