Oh, Hell.

by Pawpaw in PawPaw's House at 18:44, Thursday, 05 December

I'm going to leave this right here so I ca find it later.

Smoked Sausage and Potato Bake

1 package of sliced Eckrich skinless smoked sausage.
8 quartered Yukon gold potatoes.
1 diced green pepper.
1 diced yellow pepper.
2 tbsps of butter.
1 tsp of oregano.
1 tsp of basil.
½ tsp of black pepper.
2 tsps of olive oil.

Preheat the oven to 375°.
In a pan, arrange the sausage, potatoes and peppers and place the butter over the top in small cubes. Drizzle with olive oil and season on top.
Bake covered for 40 to 50 minutes.
Bonne Appétit!

That sounds pretty good, but I'm going to have to "Cajun" it.  I'm thinking some onion to go with the peppers, and some cheese.  I don't know anything about basil, but a good shake of Tony's over the top wouldn't hurt.

Unexpectedly, Car Sales Are “Epic”

Entry opens to Boomershoot 2019 participants on Wednesday December 11th at 6:00 PM PST. When you sign up, the site checks your name in the list of 2019 participants. It will fail to find you in 2019 if you use a different name with this entry than you did last year. The classic is ‘Robert’ versus ‘Bob’.

Federal Air Marshal Qualification

by Joe in The View From North Central Idaho at 12:10, Thursday, 05 December

I tried this years ago and failed. I should try it again.

Federal Air Marshal Qualification: Test Your CCW Skills

Commonly called the “old Air Marshal (FAM) course,” it was created for Federal Air Marshals in 1992. In cooperation with the Office of Civilian Airline Security, it was developed by a private instructor in the Fort Bragg, NC, area who routinely taught skills to certain units based at that facility. It eventually became the qualification course for all Federal Air Marshals. Those who passed it received their flying orders. Those who failed went back for more training. It was not an easy course. In fact, when senior officers from the Joint Special Operations Command attended and reviewed the course in 1998, their opinion was that those passing the TPC were among the top one-percent of pistol shooters in the world.

I expect I will fail again but I now have easy access to a place where I can practice on the stages I difficulty with.

Let me know how that works out for you

by Unknown in The Freeholder at 07:38, Thursday, 05 December

(Via Rantingly.)

Democrats, liberals and leftists (sorry, some redundancy there) want to disarm the American people-by force if necessary.

Good luck with that.

17,700,000 AR and AK semiautomatic rifles in private hands. 8,100,000,000 rounds of ammunition produced per year. In 2018, an estimated 7,660,772 total firearms were produced and imported.

The last number kind of makes you wonder about that 17.7 million "assault weapons" number, doesn't it?

I don't know how many households in the US own guns, but if I had to guess I'd say at least half.

Add in the stellar performance of gun restriction laws, registration schemes and the like, and any attempt to snatch American guns is doomed before it starts. This is as it should be.

That doesn't mean the gun grabbers are going to quit. What it means is that they are going to redouble their efforts. The conspiracy theorist in me says to watch for another spree shooting ev...

Well, in the first place an armed society is a polite society. Manners are good when one may have to back up his acts with his life. For me, politeness is a sine qua non of civilization. That’s a personal evaluation only. But gunfighting has a strong biological use. We do not have enough things to kill off the weak and the stupid these days. But to stay alive as an armed citizen a man has to be either quick with his wits or with his hands, preferably both. It’s a good thing.

Good they use units

by New Jovian Thunderbolt in New Jovian Thunderbolt at 03:30, Thursday, 05 December

Until recently I was using numbers of NICS checks as a sign of how healthy gun sales were.

But that's no longer reliable.  For example, Chicago cops run a NICS checks when they want to harass someone legally carry CCW.  So Illinois has more NICS checks than Texas.  I bet they don't have more gun sales than Texas.

I am not the only one to notice, and when folks report on the health of the gun selling retail industry they now also talk about units shifted, along with NICS. So, good.

Disgusting greed

by TPOL Nathan in The Price of Liberty at 05:00, Thursday, 05 December

A small city in Northwestern New Mexico demonstrates one of the many evils of government, especially in 21st Century North America.

This particular evil is GREED. Which leads directly to STEALING.

Let me explain:

The city has had a 3% excise tax on motel room rentals for more than 20 years. According to a radio broadcast on KENN, the town is now considering strongly doubling that tax to 6%. (This is on top of sales taxes of the city, county, and state.) When added to state and other local taxes, that means that a room rate of $39.95 will cost close to $50 – for tourist, businessman, or persons forced from their home due to fire, flood, etc. In the past, the money has been used (so it is claimed) to pay for promotional advertising of the city: getting people to come visit and stay at those motels and hotels, eat at the city’s restaurants, and such touristy things. Of course, what that REALLY means is that the tax pays for the salaries of bureaucrats (who run the tourism promotion program and manages contractors who actually DO the work), and goes to the contractors: a variety of private businesses who...

This capping breechloader was patented in the UK by William Terry in 1856, and adopted (in limited numbers) by the British military in 1860. Approved for cavalry use, it was issued to the 18th Hussars, and also bought by a variety of colonial organizations in New Zealand, South Africa, and elsewhere. In addition, it was used to some extent any the Confederacy; both J.E.B Stuart and Jefferson Davis had Terrys in their possession when taken into custody.

Mechanically, the system is a bolt action, with a two-lug, rear-locking rotating bolt. It uses a paper cartridge, the base of which is a thick greased felt pad to provide obturation. Not more than 20,000 were made between 1860 and 1870, when the company shut down. Unlike the Sharps (for example), Terry’s system was not really able to be converted to use metallic cartridges, and so sales dried up as the self-contained metal cart...

A libertarian cop…

by TPOL Nathan in The Price of Liberty at 15:29, Wednesday, 04 December

I’ve known a few libertarians who were cops, or retired cops, over the years. They’ve been good, very good, for the most part – a few were fakes (fake libertarians, not fake cops!) but it was obvious from the git-go.

Lew Rockwell just published a great story by a libertarian cop (now retired) which is worth reading. John Baeza tells a simple story and shows that it is possible to serve the public without sliding to the dark side. Although he doesn’t point it out, he explains one of the major ways in which law enforcement agencies are corrupt: they think that they exist to make money.

I recommend taking a few minutes to read, and sharing it with others.

But gun ownership is on the decline

by SayUncle in SayUncle at 09:31, Wednesday, 04 December

The NSSF has some interesting numbers for us:

The estimated total number of firearms in civilian possession from 1986-2018 is 422.9 million, according to data reported in the ATFs Firearms Commerce Report in the United States 2019 report and including the preliminary 2018 Annual Firearms Manufacturing and Exportation Report (AFMER) figures.

17,740,000 Modern Sporting Rifles are in private ownership today. (Those are rookie numbers – Ed.)

More than half (54%) of all rifles produced in 2017 were modern sporting rifles. (much better – Ed.)

I don’t know who this Ed guy is.

Virginia SB 16

by Pawpaw in PawPaw's House at 06:04, Wednesday, 04 December

I don't know if you've been paying attention, but the Virginia legislature is considering a draconian bill that would severely limit the gun rights of citizens in that state.

Virginia State Senator Richard Saslaw has introduced SB 16 in a prefile ready for 2020: it expands the definition of “assault weapons,” among other things. It also has no “grandfather” clause. Will it lead to confiscation? IF confiscation could even occur, considering gun owners in Virginia aren’t likely to roll over and give their guns back.
I haven't done a deep dive down the rabbit hole, but I was mildly curious, and find that one of the provisions is to limit pistols to 50 ounces, unloaded.  Like many of you, I know the fine distinction between a pistol and a revolver, but that 50 ounce limit got me to pondering, so I grabbed a handgun and headed for my decidedly un-calibrated scale.  Basic math tells me that 50 ounces is 3 lbs, 2 oz.

…so hey! Let’s expand the program with UNIVERSAL background checks!

Gun background checks are on pace to break record in 2019

So it makes PERFECT sense to double or triple the number of background checks! Right?

Rare Turf

So, a pastime of mine is using Google maps to explore towns in this great land of ours. Sometimes it's just out of idle curiosity. Sometimes I'll go so far as to imagine relocating there.  "Where are the cool neighborhoods? Where's the place where you can walk to the brewpubs and decent restaurants?"

One thing I've noticed is that there are not many places where you can walk to both a grocery store and good eateries in a neighborhood of single-family dwellings. The restaurants and grocery stores are usually not located in the same neighborhoods. It makes me appreciate the walkability of Broad Ripple.

5. The FBI’s Systemic Forensic Fraud in Crime Labs

In the early 1990s, Dr. Frederic Whitehurst, an attorney and chemist who worked at the FBI as a Supervisory Special Agent, noticed troubling practices in the in the bureau’s Investigation Laboratory.

There were “alterations of reports, alterations of evidence, folks testifying outside their areas of expertise in courts of law,” said Whitehurst. “[Really] what was going on was human rights violations. We have a right to fair trials in this country… And that’s not what was going on at the FBI lab.”

In 1994, he blew the whistle on the “systemic forensic fraud” he witnessed. Nothing happened. So he took his case to the Department of Justice. The FBI didn’t like that. Whitehurst was eventually chased out of the Bureau, but not before winning a $1.16 million settlement.

This is going to get sporty

by Firehand in Irons in the Fire at 06:23, Wednesday, 04 December

Protesters in southern Guangdong province, China, took to the streets last week to demand the communist government not build a polluting crematorium near their town, adopting slogans common to the Hong Kong protest movement, Time magazine noted on Monday.

The Hong Kong newspaper Apple Daily, which openly supports the anti-communist movement, reported the use of slogans such as "revolution of our times," which China considers seditious hate speech, and "just like you, Hong Kong!" in Guangdong. As China heavily censors coverage of the Hong Kong protests and bans all statements of support from the few permitted social media sites in the country, the adoption of the Hong Kong movement's slogans and tactics is a sign that people within Communist China are informing themselves regarding the protests through unapproved means.
Since they've got a lot less in the way of 'get news out' I'd imagine the PRC army stomped all over the place.  Be...

That's a nice sentiment.  The Freebeacon noticing that even super Lefty Dem primary candidates are either avoiding talking about the gun control they want to avoid scaring away voters, or are no longer running because they scared away voters.

But the true test will be how scared Dem majorities in Virginia are.  Will they pass their dream gun control measures?  Pass a watered down version?  Be stopped cold by the minority and constituent outcry which includes their Democrat constituents?

Kamala Harris Out?

by Pawpaw in PawPaw's House at 04:43, Wednesday, 04 December

It appears that the Democrat clown car has gotten a bit lighter in the run-up to next year's election.  It seems that Kamala Harris, the senator rom California has dropped out of the race.  Okay!  I never thought that she had a snowball's chance anyway. 

Lest we forget:  She was running in the Democrat primary.  Republicans wouldn't have had an opportunity to reject her until after she had won the nomination.  This is a Democrat race.  She has been rejected by other like-thinking people.  And yet, the wags reporting on this train wreck of a Democrat primary can't seem to figure out what is happening, because they don't want to spend the energy to actually think.

Sad about Kamala Harris - she didn’t dropped out, she was pushed out by the sexism and racism of our media coverage. She also faced internalization of both in our base that we still need to grapple with.

Expanding the war on guns…

by TPOL Nathan in The Price of Liberty at 05:00, Wednesday, 04 December

Disturbing news out of Virginia in the war on guns front. The Common Sense Show often stretches things just a wee bit, but this might be the real deal.

It isn’t just an infringement on multiple constitutional rights, it is badly written law that offers opportunities to anyone, especially prosecuting attorneys, to make life miserable for gun owners in the Old Dominion.

A change to an existing (and already problematic) law would make it a felony to carry a weapon (openly or concealed) when protesting or just walking down the street, if there is an “intent” to “intimidate” a person or group.

What we have is a bill proposed in the new, more statist than ever, Virginia General Assembly. Senate Bill 64 states in part:

Tippman’s Half-Scale .22 Rimfire Browning 1917 Machine Gun

by Ian McCollum in Forgotten Weapons at 05:27, Wednesday, 04 December

In 1983, Dennis Tippman formed a company to manufacture half-scale functional replicas of Browning machine guns – the 1919 and 1917 specifically. He built these as both fully automatic and semiautomatic (the semiauto design being approved by ATF in 1984) as new machine guns could still be registered in 1983. They were chambered for .22 LR rimfire ammunition, making then cheap and easy to shoot. In 1985, he added an M2HB replica, also in half scale, chambered for the .22 Magnum cartridge.

Tippman’s guns were excellent replicas of the originals, including accessories like tripods and even a few .22 caliber belt-loading machines. However, when the machine gun registry was closed in 1986, he left the business, selling it to FJ Vollmer. Tippman would move into paintball markers, and the company name is much better know for those today outside of a small community of machine gun enthus...

That didn't occur to them when they were applying to schools? It seems a bit like complaining about the meal after it's been eaten and the check has been presented.

It does make it fair to wonder how many of the whiners knew they couldn't pay going in.

That they are "law students" at this school is the most significant part of this story.

Many have chosen the 9mm PPQ as their competition or home defense gun. And for good reason. Everyone’s heard about the Walther PPQ and its exceptional trigger. But what a treat to check out the Walther PPQ M2 Q4 TAC! There is SO much to say about this beauty, so let me get started. 

Cautiously Pessimistic

by Carl Bussjaeger in The Zelman Partisans at 11:46, Tuesday, 03 December

Direct marketeer Alan Gottlieb is cautiously optimistic “that the U.S. Supreme Court will “step up to the plate” and expand further on the right to keep and bear arms that is protected by the Second Amendment in the case of the New York State Rifle and Pistol Association v. City of New York.” I’m not. And when Gottlieb says things are good, you know it’s gonna hit the fan.

Post-Heller and McDonald, the Supreme Court has been AWOL on the Second Amendment. Many people thought that would change with the appointments of Gorsuch and Kavanaugh allegedly giving the Court a “conservative” majority. How they figure that with “It’s not a fee, it’s a tax” Roberts beats the heck out of me.

We had a chance to test that theory with the bump stock ban. And they rejected a temporary stay of enforcement. Twice.

Slow learners thought that SCOTUS grant...

it could actually mean that, and we promise this won't be abused, so you really shouldn't hear this case."
NYeffingCity, and all their little friends like Watts, really don't want the Supremes to hear this because it would almost certainly cut into their 'screw with any of those peasants who want a gun' space.  Like this:
Dearing assured the justices that the NYPD would not look askance at "reasonably necessary" stops for coffee, gas, or bladder relief, prompting Gorsuch to wonder, "Is coffee reasonably necessary?" While that remark prompted laughter, Gorsuch emphasized his point: "What's going to qualify? I'm just a little unclear about that."
Sure.  This is the NYPD that, for years, arrested people on a bullshit 'gravity knife' law.  If you believe they wouldn't do everything they could to arrest people(and yank their license) for this, you're an idiot.

Pay careful attention to the second paragraph here:

Quote of the day—Josh Horwitz

by Joe in The View From North Central Idaho at 06:00, Tuesday, 03 December

As I said this morning, the gun lobby has told us for years that guns will keep us free. That simply is not true. The reality is that gun violence confines where we go, how we worship, what we do, and how we live.

Guns do not make us free — they bring death, violence, and injustice. 

Josh Horwitz
December 2, 2019
Email.
[Tell that to the people of Cambodia, Cuba, Czechoslovakia, East Germany, Hong Kong, North Korea, Poland, Venezuela, and probably dozens of other countries where tyrannical governments inflicted death, violence, and injustice upon their own citizens.

But Horwitz interest in the the facts only extends to the point he can conceal and ignore them in an effort to further his agenda.—Joe]

Lots of Guns

by Pawpaw in PawPaw's House at 07:05, Tuesday, 03 December

It wasn't a record, but Americans bought a lot of guns on Black Friday.

USA Today reported that, in total, the FBI states they fielded 202,465 requests during the 24-hour period associated with Black Friday, just under the prior record of 203,086.
Not bad.  I was traveling last Friday and didn't get a chance to look at any guns  With the proliferation of internet sales (all perfectly legal through an FFL) I wonder what the total will be for gun trade.  I see emails from some of my favorite merchants that they are still giving cyber deals.

It's enough to give a liberal the willies.

Hat tip to Termite.

The Keystone Issue

by David Codrea in The War on Guns at 08:49, Tuesday, 03 December


Abortion, tax policy, deregulation, gun rights, judicial activism … all are critical to maintaining the United States as the type of place where the most people can have the highest quality of life. But if we allow Democrats to succeed in filling our country with people predisposed to vote for big government, over time and election cycles it simply won’t be possible to win on any other issue.

Takeaway from #LondonBridge incident: If law-abiding Londoners could carry firearms legally, it probably wouldn't have happened. Amazing how bold the terrorists are when they know their victims will be unarmed. [More]
The near-universal pile-on was predictable. The sheltered, self-proclaimed superior intellects engaging in it with short-term statistics seem oblivious to Europe being genocidal killing fields twice within the life spans of people still with us. Those who do recall apparently believe that will never be repeated.

[T]he year of the Ghost Ship fire, I lived in a shack. I’d found the place just as September’s Indian summer was giving way to a wet October. There was no plumbing or running water to wash my hands or brush my teeth before sleep. Electricity came from an extension cord that snaked through a yard of coyote mint and monkey flower and up into a hole I’d drilled in my floorboards. The structure was smaller than a cell at San Quen...

Breakdown of Order in Baltimore and Chicago

So this all started because I was embroiled in a discussion about the general breakdown of order. Looking into the situation in both Chicago and Baltimore, is disheartening.

Making the switch (continued)

by SayUncle in SayUncle at 02:44, Tuesday, 03 December

I avoid public ranges. However, the weather wasn’t cooperating all week and I had to go shoot the Zev. The range was replete with all the stereotypes. To my right, two older fellas sharing a lane and their groups with their 1911s looked like someone was patterning a shot gun. To my left, some guy who had the tactical look was teaching a young lady how to shoot and encouraging her to get the 1911 instead of a black plastic people popper. Sadly, I left my phone in the truck so no pictures. But after my first mag, the lady to the left said “he can shoot”. Seems its a rare tack that a group looks like one hole (though I had a few flyers).

As to the gun, I purchased an additional frame sized like a G19 for carry. Put it on the gun and went shooting:

Training

by SayUncle in SayUncle at 02:35, Tuesday, 03 December

In VA, there is a bill proposed that, effectively, would ban firearms training:

A person is guilty of unlawful paramilitary activity, punishable as a Class 5 felony if he: 1. Teaches or demonstrates to any other person the use, application, or making of any firearm, explosive, or incendiary device, or technique capable of causing injury or death to persons, knowing or having reason to know or intending that such training will be employed for use in, or in furtherance of, a civil disorder

This goes beyond your average ordinary gun control pipe dreams and is a shot at the culture and education about firearms.

Update: Via Tam and in comments, the third paragraph is new and this seems to target open carry protesters. Here’s the text of the bill.

What a Booby

by New Jovian Thunderbolt in New Jovian Thunderbolt at 03:30, Tuesday, 03 December

Tam is going on about booby traps, and she is right.  Not a good idea.  Not even after the Zombacalypse.

Dude named Cyr (what a great name.  Cyr.  such a waste.) set up a pistol to shoot when a door was opened.  Ick.  Sick bastard.  Well, maybe familiarity bred some contempt on what might be a nigh branchless family tree, but Cyr got hoisted by his own petard.  In the closest thing you will see to a petard these days.

And this got me thinking...  what would make a good booby trap?

Now don't you finish this blog post and head on down to Home Depot for supplies.  Even the best one is an awful idea.

Trap-door, that YOU trigger, so when someone breaks into the front door, so bad guy rolls down to the basement Bond-villain style?  Maybe.  Maybe bad guy breaks his neck in the fall, too.  You HAVE improved on Cyr in that you triggered the trap.   It w...

Climate branding news

by TPOL Nathan in The Price of Liberty at 05:00, Tuesday, 03 December

I understand that “manmade climate change” and “manmade global warming” are being put to rest by the media and the environists.

The new phrase is “global meltdown.”

It is a neat term – “meltdown,” that is. I don’t know if it originated with the nuclear industry or not. It is used to describe a catastrophic failure of a nuclear reactor which runs away – where the chain reaction is uncontrolled.  Not to the point of a nuclear detonation, but to the point of melting the steel, concrete, and other materials which encapsulate and support the reactor. So that the nuclear fuel melts the entire thing down like a soft candle, but one which can take the candlestick or dish with it!

Meltdown implies something that is manmade, but uncontrollable, and is most often used to speak of people who are emotionally devastated and unable to control themselves and their response. Meltdowns are what fragile, emotional, people have – people under great stress caused by other humans. I guess it fits their...

Valkyrie Arms Semiauto M3A1 Grease Gun

by Ian McCollum in Forgotten Weapons at 05:27, Tuesday, 03 December

Valkyrie Arms was formed in 1993 to produce semiautomatic copies of classic military machine guns, and in 2004 they introduced a semiauto M3A1 “Grease Gun”. The M3 and M3A1 are particularly rare guns as registered full autos, and no other semiauto copy has been made, as parts kits are also quite rare, and the stamped construction does not lend itself to economical small-scale production. Valkyrie’s solution to this was to not copy the original production methods, and instead build the guns from a tube and a milled aluminum lower block. This lower blocks contains an AR15 trigger assembly, and the finished gun is closed-bolt and hammer fired. A few original parts were sourced for the project; the magazine release, ejection port cover (modified), and stocks – as well as using standard original magazines.

15 Minutes and a Search Engine

by ASM826 in Borepatch at 20:28, Monday, 02 December

We all know people like this. There was that kid in high school who had to lie to make himself feel cool. He lied about his exploits with his dates, or his car, or how much money he had. The guys that pin on medals they didn't earn are like this. They want to be heroes without the price.

Elizabeth Warren is like this. On simple things, where the truth wouldn't be better or worse, like her ethnicity, she lies. On things that are easily verifiable, where lying can only backfire, she can't help it.  When she was talking about education, she denied that her children went to private school. Because her platform is opposed to charter schools and school choice, she said her kids went to public schools.

Except, her son didn't. For six years, from 6th grade through 12th, he attended the Haverford School. Looks like an excellent school. Their vision and mission statements are lofty. One thing it is not, however, is a public school. Tuition is $39,500 a year.

Every President politician lies. Every one. In today's environment, what I am asking for is a Presidential candidate that is sm...
