Yeti, the maker of greatly overpriced coolers, has decided to sever whatever connection it had with NRA Foundation. They have a contact page. I'd refuse to buy from them except I never have bought and never plan to.
It's a made up fiction of the Left. A boogie-man for them to spar against.
THEN they want to somehow associate these racist group with the Right, with Trumpists, with Conservatives, with Second Amendment advocates like us, and others not expressly Left.
"How can you say that, T-Bolt? The nazis are marching!"
Yes, that proves my point. The headlines are alarmist and scary and warn: "The nation’s largest neo-Nazi group is planning a demonstration in Newnan, Georgia today. Possibly 50 racists may show up."
If you can only muster up 50 folks, and you are the tippy top biggest organization peddling that bushwa out of a nation of 300 million, then you have statistically zero members. You only have influence on the Left because the Left likes to react to you. You are useful to them. Otherwise you'd be totally ignored. By everyone.
Remember back in 1925, when the Left embraced the Klan, they could get 30,000 to march in DC. That's be like 100,000 today. The Democrat's muscle, putting on a display and trying to show President Coolidge...
The Model P was a firearm that was both iconic, and a continuation of continuing design. Also known at the Single Action Army, or the Peacemaker, it is the iconic firearm of the cowboy westerns.
Colt still makes them, if you have $2 grand to drop and are willing to wait a year or so.
There is another alternative, though. As the story goes, the president of Cimarron Firearms happened to have a first-generation Colt in his collection, and sent it to Uberti to be copied. His was the later manufacturing change, and has the cross-bolt latch for the base pin, instead of the screw for retaining the base pin. We call these the pre-war model.

The Left used to love Venezuela, and Bernie Sanders wanted the US to be more like that country. In the wake of a gun ban, Venezuela sees rising homicide rate
In 2012, the communist-dominated Venezuelan National Assembly enacted the “Control of Arms, Munitions and Disarmament Law.” The bill’s stated objective was to “disarm all citizens.” The new law prohibited all gun sales, except to government entities. The penalty for illegally selling or carrying a firearm is a prison sentence of up to 20 years. Despite criticism from the democratic opposition, the bill went into effect in 2013.
Made it easy for the dictatorship to remain in control.
The stats show that they always had more murders than we did per capita, but since the gun ban went into effect the rate has gone up substantially.
More importantly, the national homicide rate rose from 73 per 100,000 in 2012 to 90 per 100,000 in 2015. The real figures are likely higher as the Maduro regime is well known for pu...

Just got back from it. The symposium was excellent, the flight back terrible, my first really bad experience with American in all the years I've flown it. I was supposed to be back in Tucson (and could have been) at 2:42 PM, instead I landed at 10:40 PM.
But the symposium was great. Every speaker was interesting, including those on the other side. It beat hands-down a general two day symposium on constitutional law that the U of Az law school held last month. Their best speakers would have been below the average of the SIU ones. Their worst speakers ... I prefer not to remember. One spent 20 minutes explaining all the ways that death penalty sentences could be handed out with less than perfect consistencies. Why you could have an incompetent attorney, different juries, and so on. Yes, and remarkably the sun rose in the east this morning.
I suppose a big difference was that every SIU speaker was interested in his topic and speaking for that reason, whereas it is likely a bunch speaking at U of A were just trying to write on article on something, anything, toward getting tenure.
Why, oh why do we allow these killing machines on our streets.
and why we don't trust them.
Now Kleck has unearthed some lost CDC survey data on the question. The CDC essentially confirmed Kleck's results. But Kleck didn't know about that until now, because the CDC never reported what it found.
(Gee, I wonder why...)
Kleck's new paper—"What Do CDC's Surveys Say About the Frequency of Defensive Gun Uses?"—finds that the agency had asked about DGUs in its Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System in 1996, 1997, and 1998.
For those who wonder exactly how purely scientific CDC researchers are likely to be about issues of gun violence that implicate policy, Kleck notes that "CDC never reported the results of those surveys, does not report on their website any estimates of DGU frequency, and does not even acknowledge that they ever asked about the topic in any of their surveys."
So the 'non-partisan' CD...
Or something. Sweden and their problem with hand grenades | SOFREP
The last few years have seen a significant increase in the use of hand grenades for violent crimes in Sweden. The police have responded to several gang-related incidents involving grenades, including two grenades thrown into a nightclub in May, 2015 and a grenade exploding inside a restaurant in April, 2016. In January of this year, a Stockholm man was killed and another woman injured when he picked up a grenade that had been discarded to the side. In October of last year, a hand grenade went off outside a police station in Helsingborg, blowing out forty windows.
There have been 66 detonations of grenades in the past 3 calendar years, while in that time 143 grenades have been confiscated by police.
The more common choice among Swedish criminals seems to be the Yugoslavian M75 hand grenade, generally built for enclosed spaces like trenches or bunkers, but still effective in open environments. They typically hold somewhere around 3,000 balls of steel, providing a kill radius of approximately 15 meters and a cas...

[They mean it. Literally. They want to stop all causes “gun violence”. How can you do that without eliminating all guns?
It’s not like they can eliminate all violent attacks on innocent people who would use “gun violence” to defend themselves. Self defense is their biggest weakness. Push the self defense angle and watch their arguments crumble. This principle, self-defense is an inalienable right, is something they must get people to ignore in order to win in the court of public opinion and here is an example of them using weasel words in their attempt to deny people their rights.—Joe]
I experienced a first on Wednesday: an aborted takeoff. We had started rumbling down the runway, when the pilot suddenly reduced power and applied the air brakes. We rolled off the runway and he explained that one of his lights indicated the air conditioning system was not working but the problem was now solved, so we got back in line and took off. I am skeptical that was the real failure indicator, but whatever it was, he was being cautious.
Early on in each year’s building season I usually have a little encounter with dehydration, just to remind me that the issue doesn’t go away over the winter, it just sort of hibernates.
Doesn’t usually happen as early as April, though. This got me Thursday afternoon, after a very productive morning in which BB and I finished the new flashing on the east side of the Lair and fixed and resealed some winter damage on the siding.
The next task was supposed to be quite simple, just cut and apply inside molding around the back door. But suddenly I couldn’t get anything right – I wasn’t thinking straight and really shouldn’t have been around power saws, the sun dazzled me, I was achy and cranky and just generally stupid. You’d think I’d know what all those things are a sign of by now, wouldn’t you? Except it’s April, it’s not hot, it wasn’t even all that bright.
Dehydration is cumulative. I spent the whole day before holding a ladder and staring into the sky, getting a nice face sunburn. I was fine Wednesday and I was fine Thursday morning, but Thursday afternoon it all came home to roos...

Kevin Williamson discusses his short career at The Atlantic.
In early March, I met up with Jeffrey Goldberg, the editor in chief of the Atlantic, at an event sponsored by the magazine at the South by Southwest conference in Austin. He had just hired me away from National Review, the venerable conservative magazine where I’d been a writer and editor for 10 years.
“You know, the campaign to have me fired will begin 11 seconds after you announce that you’ve hired me,” I told him. He scoffed. “It won’t be that bad,” he said. “The Atlantic isn’t the New York Times. It isn’t high church for liberals.”
My first piece appeared in the Atlantic on April 2. I was fired on April 5.

While traveling through Albuquerque, I was invited to join the New Mexico Milsurps club for one of their long range rifle matches. This is no typical shooting challenge – the course of fire is 20 rounds (after the spotting shots to figure out your hold) on a 21″ x 43″ silhouette target at 800 yards. It is open to unmodified military firearms only, with a heavy focus on iron sighted bolt action rifles. I was loaned an Eddystone M1917 rifle in .30-06 to use – one of the best military bolt actions ever made, in my opinion.
The club has a very cool system set up for spotting hits on the target. A bracket on the back of the target holds a piezoelectric accelerometer connects to a bright strobe flash on a tripod about 10 yards off to the side. When a bullet hits the target plate, the accelerometer triggers the strobe to flash, and that light is readily visible from even 800 yards away (as you can see in the video)....

I talked about this pistol back in 2013, an old Colt 1911 I picked up in a pawn shop. I shot it a few times, ran it through a USPSA match, and shortly after that, the Sheriff gave us Glocks to carry.
The 1911 was probably the very first pistol I ever shot, when we went to the range with a class of savetail lieutenants back in 1976. I learned that I shoot the 1911 almost instinctively. It just points well in my hand. The grip angle is correct for me, and the sights align naturally out of the holster.

The US Marine Corps are working with the US Army to find a replacement for the 5.56x45mm ammunition currently available.

The Marine Corps, however, have not voiced the same concerns, indeed they even recently […]

Will you have a recreational boat located in a hurricane zone as of June 1? According to recently released predictions by experts at Colorado State University, the 2018 Atlantic hurricane season could be a doozy. If your boat may be in the crosshairs of one of the 14 tropical storms or seven hurricanes predicted, Boat Owners Association of The United States (BoatUS) recommends that boat owners check their boat insurance policy now for these six most important things to know.

Effingham County Illinois has become the latest sanctuary in the nationwide movement of local governments standing up to State and federal governments and refusing to enforce laws that the locals think are wrong or unconstitutional.
By an 8-1 vote, the Effingham County Council voted to declare their county a sanctuary for gun owners and to direct county employees to not enforce any gun control laws that they felt violated the 2nd Amendment.
“The best we can hope for concerning the people at large is that they be properly armed.”
According to my various newsfeeds, students across the country plan to skip school again today to shamelessly dance in 19 year-old Columbine blood to demand more gun control. After all, it’s been nearly twenty years and we still haven’t stopped school shootings.
Let’s look at what they want:
Raise firearms purchase age limit to 21.
The Columbine shooters obtained their firearms unlawfully, through a combination of straw purchases and illegal sales to 17yos.
They broke age limit laws.
“Assault weapon ban.
The Columbine shooters only had one “assault weapon” (TEC-9; illegally obtained: see above) and that was smack in the middle of the 1994-2004 federal “assault weapon ban.
That one didn’t work.
Universal background checks.
See above, re: illegal and straw purchases.
They broke laws to get around background checks.
“High capacity” magazine ban.
The Columbine shooters used a carbine with 10-round magazines, a pump-action shotgun (illegally sawed-off), a double-barrel shotgun (illegally sawed-off, and just try to jam ...
Ohio Politicians are as ignorant as Oregon Politicians (and that's saying something), when it comes to "Gun Control Laws".
Under the bill, an “assault weapon” is an automatic firearm or semi-automatic firearm capable of accepting a detachable magazine with the capacity of accepting ten or more cartridges and a semi-automatic firearm with a fixed magazine with the capacity of accepting ten or more cartridges.
I ran across this blog article (written a year ago), and after consideration I think the author has so thoroughly "done his homework" that nothing I can say would amount to anything more than Gilding the Lily.
Nobody wants to take your guns? – The Writer in Black:
Whenever I, or others, object to “registration” or bans on transfers, or other forms of “gun control” and firearms restrictions as steps toward an eventual complete prohibition and the confiscation that such would necessarily entail, we get told we’re paranoid and “nobody wants to take your guns.” Well, perhaps we should consider these “nobodies” ...Take a few minutes.

Belle is at the funeral home, to pay respects to a lady she once worked with, so I'm on my own hook for supper.
The doctor has me on a no-white-stuff diet, and I"m trying to be a good boy, so on the way home this afternoon, I stopped at the grocers, got a pound of good sausage, some frozen mixed veggies, and some shredded cabbage (cole slaw mix).
I got home, and piddled in the shop for an hour or so, then came inside to concoct a meal.
I cut up half of the pound of sausage into rounds, then put them in a black skillet and browned them.
Dropped in a handful of mixed veggies and let that saute in the fat from the sausage. Then I put in half the bag of cabbage, and added water to let it simmer for about 10 minutes.

I’ve kept it in the Jeep’s gear bag, reasoning that if a need arose for a length of really kickass rope it would likely happen around the Jeep. But no need sufficiently urgent appeared, and I certainly wasn’t going to use it up in little slices for mundane uses. That’s what cheap hardware store rope is for, and this is a really nice piece of rope.
Last night it occurred to me, a sufficiently important use had emerged to cut a piece off that coil.

On Saturday almost 1,500 motorcyclists gathered in Aix-en-Provence in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur region, protesting against the speed limit of 80 kmh [50mph]. Around 5 pm one of the drivers, irritated by the blockage of the road by the demonstration, couldn’t stand it any more and, swinging a knife through the open window, he plowed his car into the rallying motorcyclists. Some of the witnesses testified that he was shouting “Allahu Akhbar”.Ah, France. Blocking roads has become an art form. Or an entertainment. Or both.
Two of the motorcyclists were wounded: one in the hand and the other in the arm. Both were hospitalized. However, the angry crowd turned on the car, and with the help of helmets and rocks they began to destroy it. The driver and the passengers, however, managed to break free and avoid lynching.It may be France, but these are bikers. Click through to enjoy the video of, well, bikers reacti...

As the final episodes of Game of Thrones are being anticipated, it is fun to look at the way gaming has impacted our view of government today. (And by gaming, I do not use it in the South Dakota manner of “gambling” at all the little “casinos” which dot the state (the places in Deadwood are “gambling houses”) and bring in all kinds of money – that is a subject for another commentary.)
War games and role-playing games long predate our current computer and internet based gaming. Indeed, some of the earliest are beloved family games: Monopoly, Risk, and The Game of Life come to mind. But the complexity and elaborate nature exploded in the 1970s and 1980s.
They became “popular” (at least to geeks and a small community of interesting people) back in the 1970s: Strategic Simulations Inc. and Avalon Hill for wargaming, and Tactical Studies Rules (TSR) for Dungeons and Dragons, the first well-known role playing game.
Huge numbers of competitors and hobbyists sprang up over the next decade. Wargames, usually known by their German name “Kreigspeil”...
Sweden in general, and the government in particular, isn’t too keen on recognizing the truth. But you can’t hide from reality. Sweden’s violent reality is undoing a peaceful self-image – POLITICO
In a period of two weeks earlier this year, five explosions took place in the country. It’s not unusual these days — Swedes have grown accustomed to headlines of violent crime, witness intimidation and gangland executions. In a country long renowned for its safety, voters cite “law and order” as the most important issue ahead of the general election in September.
Even discussing the issues is hard because of social taboo. The police complain that the foreign press “makes it seem like crime is out of control.” This is after a hand grenade attack on a police office, and a police car destroyed by explosion. (Sounds out of control to me.)
Where violent crime was once rare, shootings are now so commonplace they no longer make top headlines.
The government isn’t just trying to...
“Stand your ground; don’t fire unless fired upon, but if they mean to have a war, let it begin here.” — Captain John Parker.

And fired the shot heard round the world.

Hannes Wessels is angry that his teenage daughters are being indoctrinated with the Left’s Victimology approach to History. So angry that he produced a rant full of denied, ignored, and absolutely unspeakable truths.
That “truth” goes right to the core of busting the myth about colonialism being a blight on the continent [of Africa] and the independence that followed being a blessing, when in fact, the very converse is true. That would be made embarrassingly obvious if the countries of Europe and North America were to make it known that they were bac...

I consistently hear people in the So-Called Patriot Movement(tm) talking about how stupid the feds are. Well, as this story proves yet again, those stupid feds keep getting people with the same old schtick. Every time. The same freaking thing. So who’s really stupid here?
Note the all-too-familiar formula:
1) All about the Facebook postings.
2) Someone magically shows up, agrees with everything they say, and oh, look, he can help with your plan (or he HAS a plan).
3) The media is right there to twist it all up and make it sound even better. To be fair, these three didn’t exactly need that. They did a great job all on their own.
Although I think the postings themselves are mostly pretty tame for the most part, the point (once again), is that Facebook is not safe. Not your pages, not your timelines, not your messages, nothing.

Former NYPD Sgt. David Villanueva, a longtime supervisor in the department’s License Division, testified Tuesday that he accepted greenbacks and goodies from Former Assistant Brooklyn District Attorney John Chambers and other gun expediters, to speed up the permitting process.

The Deschutes County sheriff would decide whether any local, state or federal gun law is unconstitutional under the measure’s broader interpretations of those rights.

I am humbled and excited to have been invited to join The Maven, a confederation of independent bloggers, journalists, activists, and subject matter experts spanning across the spectrum of topics. It is a group assembled as a bloc to help ensure and support open free speech on the internet, and to attempt to bring back alternatives to the walled gardens of social media that have formed online in recent years. The assault on open speech comes not from political prejudice, but rather from a corporate infantilization of media; an attempt to force all content to be so bland and non-threatening as to not possible perturb anyone. From firearms to social commentary to political activism to health, The Maven hosts independent publishers who have poured their lives into subjects they are truly passionate about.
For most of its members, Maven’s greatest value is offering a way to gain advertising income by offering access to audiences who are engaged with truly high quality content – and this c...

And while Chicago is no longer a defenseless-victim-zone by way of the law, most residents of Wrigleyville and Boystown are disarmed because they are too liberal to believe in guns.
It won’t happen all at once of course, but progressively. It’s already in progress. Eventually, everyone who dissents against the coercive state will be deemed “mentally unfit”. We’ve seen these kinds of things before, so there’s no need for speculation.
It is all in play right now, protected by our normalcy bias and our incredulity.

On this day in 1775, the British moved toward the villages of Lexington and Concord, They were trying to trying to capture military stores, ie; muskets, powder, balls, or cannon. We cal it a battle, but it was really only a skirmish, or a brushing engagement.
The colonists had been forewarned by Paul Revere and other riders.Captain John Parker put his militia company on the town square. His move was calculated for maximum advantage. He neither blocked the road to Concord, nor tried to stop the British advance. He was a "show of foce", to let the British know that colonial militia was present, and watching. He told his men, "Stand your ground; don't fire unless fired upon, but if they mean to have a war, let it begin here." In the resulting engagement, eight colonists were killed.
The British continued to Concord to continue to search for military supplies. On the return trip, they were harassed by hundreds of militia who had gathered, hearing of the engagement in Lexington.
This was, of course, the year b...

one of the things they're not reporting on:
The House Office of Inspector General charged in Sept. 30, 2016 that data was being funneled off the House network by the Awans as recently as September 2016 — shortly before the presidential election.
Nearly Imran’s entire immediate family was on the House payroll working as IT aides to one-fifth of House Democrats, and he began working for the House in 2004. The inspector general, Michael Ptasienski, testified this month that “system administrators hold the ‘keys to the kingdom’ meaning they can create accounts, grant access, view, download, update, or delete almost any electronic information within an office. Because of this high-level access, a rogue system administrator could inflict considerable damage.”
For some reason this isn't 'newsworthy'; gee, I wonder why...
Actually that is one of a very long list of things that I wish reporters knew about.
I would like to have some real information about what happened to the Southwest Airlines Boeing 737, aside from the 2 words, “metal fatigue” in relation to a fan blade. But most stories don’t even mention the First Officer of Flight 1380 by name – His name is Darren Ellisor. The Captain on the flight was Captain Tammie Jo Shults, but you probably already knew that.
I want to say that high-bypass turbofan blades are replaced regularly, but I’m actually not sure if that is true, or how it is handled for a CFM engine. I do know that on at least some engines the blades are replaced during an engine overhaul. (I don’t remember if the fan blades replaced or if only compressor and/or turbine blades are replaced.) Overhauls happen regularly according to FAA dictated schedules, or if problems are discovered.
Tam has an interesting take on the fact that most people are oblivious to the dangers that surround them in everyday life. Forget about the dangers involved in sealin...
That was when and where the British Empire tried to impose gun control on the Americans, and the Americans objected. The Battles of Lexington and Concord.
At dawn on April 19, some 700 British troops arrived in Lexington and came upon 77 militiamen gathered on the town green. A British major yelled, “Throw down your arms! Ye villains, ye rebels.” The heavily outnumbered militiamen had just been ordered by their commander to disperse when a shot rang out. To this day, no one knows which side fired first. Several British volleys were subsequently unleashed before order could be restored. When the smoke cleared, eight militiamen lay dead and nine were wounded, while only one Redcoat was injured.
A day of skirmishes followed, with the British Regulars being met by about 2000 militia at Concord, where they were sent to search for arms. Most had been relocated, and the British found very little.
They decided to burn what little they found, and the fire got slightly out of control. Hundreds of militiamen occupying the high ground ou...
