During spring of 2023, J'den McAdory, in Maryland, has been openly carrying a long gun in protest over Governor (D) Moore's push for infringements on Second Amendment rights. For weeks, maybe months, people ignored J'den's protests. WBALTV interviewed McAdory, the governor responded, and called McAdory's brave protests an "act of cowardice". Whatever else is true, for a young man to stand against the entire state apparattis in Maryland and assert his First and Second Amendmen...
The homeowner, Bob Grafft, said his daughter let their dog out late Thursday night, while he was sleeping. According to CSPD, three masked suspects entered a home through the open backdoor while the daughter was with the dog.
Grafft said two suspects went downstairs to the basement while the other, with a sawed-off shotgun, went to the bedroom. When his daughter, Lisa, realized people were in the home, she grabbed a gun.
Grafft said he was awakened by his daughter telling the suspect with the shotgun to get out or she will shoot him. When the suspect ran, Lisa shot him in the shoulder, according to Grafft.

During the Russo-Japanese War, the Japanese government helped smuggle arms to potential revolutionaries in Russia, in hopes of provoking a domestic crisis that would divert Russia military force form the war. This included a plot to buy many thousands of surplus Vetterli rifles (as well as C96 Mausers, Webley revolvers, and a few other odds and ends) and ship them to St Petersburg. The Japanese provided the freighter SS John Grafton, and it loaded up the weapons in Copenhagen.
The first plan was to unload a few guns in Helsinki and take the rest to St Petersburg; this was scrapped when the ships intended to help unload failed to appear at the scheduled rendezvous. A new plan was formed to drop all the guns in Finland, and the Grafton headed north into the Gulf of Bothnia. When it went to start unloading at Pietarsaari, it...
I quit smoking cigarettes 10 years ago today (observed)
Today is a day that is not about hot dogs and cookouts, but about honoring and remembering those who gave their lives and who give their service to this country and to the ideals of freedom and to the proposition that all men are created equal. So today I remember the honored military who gave their all and try to be worthy of that sacrifice.
On this last Monday in May, Americans stop to remember and honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice in defense of our nation. It is their sacrifices that helped to preserve the freedoms we value and enjoy today. Sadly, there are too many people in our country who take freedom for granted, or even naively despise the blessings of liberty. As we pause to remember our lost heroes, may we also vow to be steadfast in our opposition of those who wish to destroy that which has been so hard won.
Today, Memorial Day, is a day of solemn remembrance in the U.S. of the many who have given their all for our freedoms. We always thank those who are serving in our military and their families who have also made sacrifices, but today most of all we want to honor those who gave their lives. — Today’s feature article is a review authored by SurvivalBlog Field Gear Editor Thomas Christianson.

Back in the days of my youth, when a hunter headed out to the field, he usually carried a fixed-blade sheath knife on his belt. The one serious exception was the Buck 110 folder. Someone carrying a Buck 110 in a leather belt pouch was considered just as well equipped as someone who was carrying a fixed-blade knife. The classic Buck 110 is still available today. May it always be so. But there is also a variant of that classic design that has been updated for easier pocket carry. It has a thinner, synthetic handle and a pocket clip. It …

“Political correctness is communist propaganda writ small. In my study of communist societies, I came to the conclusion that the purpose of communist propaganda was not to persuade or convince, not to inform, but to humiliate; and therefore, the less it corresponded to reality the better.

A glimmer of hope for Seattle?
Bland is back? In Seattle the fiery far left is barely on the ballot
It appears the revolution has petered out.
Or maybe it’s just on pause. But Seattle’s great civic experiment of the past decade, dabbing in socialism and far-left progressive experiments in public policy, is all but a no-show in the current City Council campaigns.
It wasn’t long ago that candidates for public office here would routinely declare things like, “We’re going to make Seattle the most progressive city in America.” The campaigns were movements, centered around first-in-the-nation policy ideas involving wages, tenant law, anti-corporate campaign finance measures or such utopian fantasies as completely abolishing the police.
Seattle became one of the only cities to elect a real-deal socialist, of the type that wants to end capitalism — the outgoing Socialist Alternative Councilmember, Kshama Sawant.
Now candidates are talking about potholes. Building sidewalks. Hiring more cops. Fixing st...

It appears that Arizona is facing a water crisis. It has many facets, but here are some that are worth considering, both for people in Arizona and elsewhere. This is the case even if the FedGov-pressured grand agreement between Arizona and a half dozen other States actually goes into effect.

But back to water in Arizona.

Previous evidence suggests that living at higher altitudes leads to longer life spans for humans. Scientists at Harvard Medical School wanted to know why.
In a study released this week of mice, evidence found restricting oxygen flow led to significantly longer lifespans. Researchers placed mice into two chambers. One set of mice was in a chamber with normal oxygen levels; another set was in a section with an oxygen level equivalent to Mount Everest’s. The mice employed in the study generally have short life spans.
The group of mice with their oxygen restricted lived, on average, 24 weeks, compared to 16 weeks for those who experienced normal oxygen levels. Harvard Medical School also found the maximum lifespan for mice with oxygen restriction was about 30% longer.
The researchers also noted that oxygen-restricted mice preserved neurologic function longer.
Study shows farms on decline, posing risks to future food supply
The world’s farms are disappearing.
A new study out of the University of Colorado, Boulder found that the number of farms globally will shrink in half by the end of the century.
“The most striking finding that comes out of this work is that globally…we’ll see a tipping point from farm creation to farm consolidation,” said Zia Mehrabi, an assistant professor at the University of Colorado, Boulder and author of the study.
Why is this happening? One reason, the study mentions, is because there are not enough people to do farm work as people move from rural areas to cities.
The research also mentions the average existing farm will double in size by the end of the century.

In many ways, America is already broken apart. When secession is portrayed in its strictest sense, as a group of people declaring independence and taking a portion of a nation as they depart, the discussion is myopic, and current acts of exit hide in plain sight. When it comes to secession, the question is not just “What if?” but “What now?”
I’m not sure I even have a reasonable guess to answers for the questions posed.
I could possibly see the Federal government collapsing due to the debt crisis and no individual states claiming responsibility. But that is about it. And then what happens? Do the Federal Assets get auctioned off to the highest bidders to pay off some fraction of the national debt?

Never forget their contribution to our nation, in fact to each of us, it was the ultimate sacrifice. 🇺🇸
This history of gun control is exceptionally ugly. Dating back to the colonial times in the 1600s in the New World, and before that in Europe and elsewhere, gun control was used to disarm various minority groups to leave them open to terror, oppression, and exploitation. Slaves, freed slaves, Native Americans/Indigenous Peoples as well as Catholics and others were targeted by colonial authorities and the early states with explicit gun control measures to keep them obedient and in line. These SAME laws are NOW being used to by gun control advocates to advocate for gun control TODAY. Gun control advocates are using the very existence of these laws as a legal basis to show that there is a “historical tradition” within the United States and preceding colonies as a claim to bolster the constitutionality of gun control today.

We are in the midst of a system bank run, which is in the greater sense really a bank run on the United States of America, the issuer of the reserve currency of the world.

Her banking system is under pressure and this is likely to intensify until something much bigger breaks.

The cooling that ends it causes central Asian nomads to play bumper cars with other tribes, sending the Goths pleading for Roman protection in the 4th century AD.

We regularly see the MP43/44/StG44 portrayed with an optical sight (a ZF-4). But was this really something that the German Army actually issued? Well, in a word…no.
The first iteration of the Sturmgewehr, the MKb-42(H), was designed to potentially fit a ZF-41 long eye relief optic on its rear sight tower. A few of these setups were made during testing, but he General Staff dislike the mount and wanted something more solid.
The next iteration was a test in September and October 1943 comparing the new ZF-4 optic on the MP43/1 and the G43. The same type of mount was used for both rifles, and the MP43/1 had a stamped mounting rail spot welded to the right side of its receiver. However, it performed quite poorly in testing – much worse than the G43. The MP43 accuracy was awful (about 11 MOA on average), the optic was useless in bursts, and...

For ANY firearm to be legal in New Jersey, it must now meet two criteria established by this law:
1) the firearm must be imprinted with a serial number; and
2) the serial number must be registered with a federally licensed manufacturer.
Under these requirements, the following types of firearms are now banned in New Jersey with no grandfathering or exceptions:
1) All pre-1968 rifles, shotguns, and handguns without serial numbers. Warning: Prior to 1968, there was no federal law requiring guns to have serial numbers.
2) All modern rifles, shotguns, pistols, and revolvers with serial numbers, but are not registered with a federally licensed manufacturer. This would include most modern imported rifles, shotguns, pistols, and revolvers, plus foreign firearms, and military surplus firearms from countries around the world, if these companies were not federally licensed manufacturers (e.g., Lugers, P-38s, Mausers, Arisakas, Enfields, SKSs, Carcanos, Webleys, Norincos, Mosins, etc.).

"Came out to investigate the noise on the patio door. A guy had come through the kitchen window, over the sink and was turned toward me about 15 feet," Craig said.
Craig said he yelled at the guy and then pulled out his gun.
"I got off one shot at him. I hope I scared him, but I missed him," Craig said.
Craig may have missed him, but he has a sneaking suspicion the suspect might be a little sore.
"This window frame is broken where he pried under here and forced it up — that's where he came in,” Craig said.
He said the suspect escaped the same way he came in.

When the Slovenian Army decided to adopt a new infantry rifle in the mid-2000s, the Arex Defense company decided to submit the F-2000 into the trials. The H&K G36 was widely expected to be the winner, but Arex had already been involved in making F2000 parts as a subcontractor for FN, and wanted a chance at a domestic-production rifle for Slovenia.
The one major hurdle was that the Army tender required the rifle to have a carry handle, which the F2000 does not. At the request of Arex, FN agreed to design a version of the rifle with such a feature, but balked at the extremely tight time frame required. So instead, Arex made their own new upper receiver for the F2000, with an elevated picatinny optics rail and a carry handle beneath. This was entered into the rifle trials and ended up winning. A contract for 6500 of the guns was issued, and they were d...

Electricity prices in Finland flipped negative — a huge oversupply of clean, hydroelectric power meant suppliers were almost giving it away
Finland was dealing with an unusual problem on Wednesday: clean electricity that was so abundant it sent energy prices into the negative.
While much of Europe was facing an energy crisis, the Nordic country reported that its spot energy prices dropped below zero before noon.
This meant that the average energy price for the day was “slightly” below zero, Jukka Ruusunen, the CEO of Finland’s grid operator, Fingrid, told the Finnish public broadcaster Yle.
In practice, it doesn’t appear any ordinary Finns are being paid to consume electricity. People pay a markup on t...

She gave me a little taste when it came out of the oven, and OhmyGod. It's good. Buttery, with a nice crust, and very light on the inside.
Tomorrow, we're hosting the club for our Monthly Match, so I'll be busy for most of the day.
The Association is talking about different match formats, and we will try one out tomorrow. It caps the number of shots n an individual bout to 13 shots. Many matches are over in five shots, but sometimes they tend to go longer. We'll try it with the club tomorrow and see how everyone likes it.
I think we'll be okay.
I do like this guy's vlogs. These recipes sound yummy - even the one from 3rd class. I'd eat that.
In Indianapolis, a 'Youth Carnival' is being put on by Indy Pride and Indiana Youth Group (both alphabet mafia groups).
But here's the kicker: parents are not allowed on premises BUT per the registration form, they include adults from ages 18-20 under the banner of 'youths' so they can attend. I'm pretty sure that even same-sex sexual activity is still counted as statutory rape, by the by.
Regarding the exclusion of parents, O’Haillin-Berne said that although parents “are invited to participate in alternative activities … , we do not allow parents on site for safety concerns.”
These safety concerns derived from a “general sociopolitical climate” that is “inhospitable and hostile to LGBTQ+ children,” she said, and could “cause psychological and physical harm to queer youth.”
Here's the registration form. Please to note the activities such as meeting 'drag queen royalty' and the plethora of pronouns to choose from.

Bond Arms is well known for their Stinger series of compact derringers that offer everything from the shootablity and fun of 22LR all the way up to defensive cartridges like 9mm. These compact derringers are often most well known for having a bit of a sting when it comes to shooting some of the larger […]
