If this is true, then McCain is going to take Florida. I hope it's not true and that he still takes Florida, but I only get one vote on it so I can't really pull it off myself. Amendment 2 is an anti-gay proposal (although the commercials against it never mention gays, only hetero-companions) meant to define marriage and one man and one woman only. I believe marriage is a spiritual thing but if two (or more...yeesh) people want to shack up, that's none of anyone else's business and the...

Claims the NRA is lying about Obama's gun grabbing past, so I assume he is insinuating Obama is actually good on guns, which in Bryan's sad, pathetic little world, translates directly into "Obama has a small penis".

But the message it brings is still apropos. Ms. Jong states "If Obama loses it will spark the second American Civil War. Blood will run in the streets, believe me." She better hope she's not right because the vast majority of people who will vote against Obama are like me, the ones with all the guns. Of course, a washed up, 70's feminist (isn't she just so cute!) doesn't exactly speak in terms of reality, but it is funny how people with that mind set turn their noses up to gun ownership but...

Now, I walked into the buildings, got her fundraising stuff, met with the teacher, got back in my car and proceeded to pick up dinner. During my few minutes in the school, even had I decided to not follow the law, I would have posed no danger to any of the children.

This was a tragic accident that, like most accidents, could have been avoided, however humans don't always make the best judgements and thus life can be cruel. The boy was supervised and had an instructor behind him. Unfortunately this was not enough to keep the muzzle from jumping upwards.

First things first, thanks to many emails and comments, I am planning on just waiting out the repairs on the Para Gun Blog 45. It's a great pistol, it just needs to get fixed, that is all. However, feeding it is always going to be expensive. Prohibitively if I do nothing but buy factory ammo, tolerable if I reload myself, and even then I could lower the pain level if I use lead cast bullets rather than FMJ or hollow points. Now, I've contacted Para USA, and like every other manufacturer they...

1840s Colt auctions for $920,000 An anonymous bidder paid a record $920,000 for a historic .44-caliber revolver owned by a Libby man. And the buyer got a bargain, said auctioneer James Julia. The Colt Walker pistol made for U.S. marshals in the 1840s belonged to University of Maine graduate John McBride's great-great-uncle. That must be one hell of a revolver.

Endorses McCain/Palin Not sure their perfect record is going to stay in tact here. I can understand why though, it's probably the same reason I support McCain. Not because I want to, but the other option is so God awful that I'm not left with much of a choice.

I've been saying the same thing for a long time But at the end of the day it will still, basically, be a gun. Lumps of metal driven by expanding gas will fly out of the end at high speed, and make holes in things or people which they hit. Again, a firearm is a simple device. It is a tube, enclosed at one end with a projectile that is expelled out the other by means of pressure. You can use PVC for the tube, a sack of nails for the projectile, and lighter fluid for the propellant and create a...

OK. I think I've calmed down enough to write a better blog post that doesn't use foul language every third word. Here's the story - When I received my Gun Blog 45 from Para USA, I was ecstatic. I only had a few glitches with the pistol at Blackwater and I primarily assumed it was just being a newbie when it came to the 1911 platform. However, when I first took it to the range, I discovered there was actually something physically wrong with the pistol itself. With the (superfluous IMHO) safety...

I'm not thrilled about this The Cheerleaders at Nacogdoches High School have sparked gun violence protesting after their skit last month, in which they fake kill cheerleaders dressed as the opposing team. Executions are not something lighthearted and trivial. It's one thing to use a euphemism such as "Kill the other team", it's quite another to actually act it out, especially in something as gruesome as a shot to the back of the head. I'd have been equally disdainful had the cheerleaders...

That I realize I did well by not watching the debates last night. Reaction from the 'sphere seems to be nothing new was learned, that McCain failed miserably to go on the offense, and that basically it's going to be President Obama come early next year. Again, I wouldn't care if people wouldn't put such stock in the presidency, but they do. If only the GOP hadn't chosen such a shitty candidate, I might feel compelled to help sell him, but it's hard to push someone when his biggest redeeming...

Watching the IDPA and IPSC matches, I've realized there's a shirt that many of us need. And, being the entrepreneurial kind of guy I am, I've made it for everyone to enjoy! I call this one The Ahab Special I'm going to have to get one for the matches. Just a hint - Dark colors work the best on this design. For some odd reason, Zazzle can't print white on light colored shirts, so the target becomes the color of the shirt you pick if it's not considered "dark". Enjoy!

Palin referred to a New York Times article that called Ayers as a domestic terrorist. "His own top advisor said they were, quote,...

I've been dangerously low on ammo. With all my money going into buying actual firearms, I've neglected to do what I need to when it comes to feeding them. Tonight, I loaded up all my 6.8 SPC. I enjoy loading rifle much more than handgun, even though it takes me an hour to only get 75 rounds finished. Tomorrow, I'm going to try to crank out as much 10mm as I have components for. I might even try to load up some .357 Magnum Sound and Fury loads for poops and grins. With trying to shoot...

Watching the USPSA match today, I got hyper-pumped. I'm dying to shoot now. I think I could handle myself ok in competition, I'll do fine in motion and feel confident I could knock down the steel pretty well. My biggest concern with IPSC is that I have 4, 8-round magazines giving me a total of 32 (33 if I feed one first) shots. Some of the rounds required 32 minimum, and I'm not that good yet, so there'll need to be backups. Para USA sells some 10 round, single stack 45 ACP magazines, but...

Since I went to watch an IDPA match, I'm heading over to watch a USPSA match tomorrow. I'd partake in the activities, but alas, my pistol is in the shop. Some rod isn't connecting with some pin correctly and the trigger is able to be pulled with the safety engaged. Para USA is taking care of it as we speak. Not that I'm a fan of the safety, but if it's there, I'm going to use it and train with it as the last thing you want to do is freak out because the trigger won't move (in my case, it would...

I find the best way to start a nice Saturday is to wash my car. With the Wrangler, I simply didn't care since the dirt added character. However, with a black hatchback, washing weekly is a requirement. Luckily it's something I enjoy. I have to start early on Saturday because even though it's starting to cool off a little, by 10:00 the sun is out and the water will dry before I get to the other side. This is a problem, washing your car in Florida, because the water is extremely hard and if you...

Dry firing practice is a great way to help with trigger control and preventing flinching. It's something everyone should do from time to time and in fact, when I find myself flinching during range time, I'll unload and do some dry firings until I feel I've overcome the flinch again. However, last night I realized that if I am to start shooting IDPA like I plan, it's going to take a few more skills that I don't get to practice on the range - Namely drawing from the holster and reloading rapidly....
