3/19/18 USA Today:

Led by attorney Lisa Bloom at a press conference in Los Angeles Monday, two women who had previously accused Steven Seagal of rape and sexual assault told their stories about the actor's alleged misconduct.
Originally revealed in a January report by The Wrap, actress Regina Simons said she was 18 and an extra on Seagal’s 1994 film On Deadly Ground when he allegedly raped her, while former model Faviola Dadis said she filed a police report about Seagal in the last month, saying he groped her during an audition in 2002.
During the press conference, Simons said that Seagal raped her after inviting her to his house, claiming he was throwing a wrap party. She said that he was twice her age at the time, and she had not had a sexual encounter with a man before ...

World’s Narrowest Streets

by JDZ in Never Yet Melted at 08:56, Tuesday, 20 March

Spreuerhofstraße, Reutlingen, Germany.

Amusing Planet:

According to the Guinness Book of Records, the narrowest street in the world is located in the old town of Reutlingen, in Germany. It is actually a narrow alley, called Spreuerhofstraße, between two closely built houses. The “street” is only 31 centimeters wide at its narrowest point and 40 centimeters wide on the average. The street isn’t particularly long either — just 3.8 meters. But since it is located on municipal land, the folks of Reutlingen insist it’s a public street.

There’s not much to see in Spreuerhofstrasse, and ...

1984 Redux?

By Nathan Barton

The United Kingdom, once a land of far more liberty than 95% of the world, has become the poster child for the new “democratic despotism” which (like all forms of involuntary government) seeks to control not just the lives but the thoughts of those under its rule.

“Hate crimes” are defined by the Royal government as: A crime that the victim or any other person perceives to be motivated by hostility or prejudice towards any aspect of a person’s identity. Police forces in England, Wales and Northern Ireland annually monitor five strands of Hate Crime:

  • Disability
  • Gender Identity
  • Race, Ethnicity or Nationality
  • Religion, Faith or Belief
  • Sexual Orientation

“Hate incidents” are “Any incident, which may or may not be a crime, that the victim or any other person perceives to be motivated by hostility or prejudice towards any aspect of a person’s identity.”

Her Majesty’s civil servants (including the police) tell those “victims: “If you think it is, it is. Whate...

The dogs are usually hyper alert to things outside. Their beds are by the window and Belle in particular sits and gazes out all day long. When either one of them sees or hears anything suspicious--a passing cat, someone walking a rival dog past (Oh no they didn't!) or something really threatening like the UPS truck, a school bus, a garbage truck or their personal nemesis the mailman, they sound off in tandem like it's World War Three.

But last night, they were completely silent as I worked on assembling a dresser in my bedroom. They didn't even react to the drums and the chants outside that finally caught MY ear and made me go look.

Take a second, save a leg

“The fast and/or emphatic reholster is an awesome way to shoot yourself.” – Chuck Haggard

We often see people practicing for a faster draw from the holster, and as they speed up each draw they also start SLAMMING the gun quickly back into the holster on every repetition. That’s a very predictable result of getting a little adrenalin going. “Faster! Go faster!” is the chant in your head, after all, so it’s no surprise that your body reacts to it by going faster.

Even when it shouldn’t.

This pattern creates one of the most common ways that people shoot themselves, as we discussed yesterday. Among experienced and otherwise well-trained gun owners, a habit of jamming the gun into the holster very quickly and without thinking accounts for a huge number of close calls. And for far too many serious injuries.

As Karl Rehn, one of the best and most experienced instructors in the business, says: “The two scariest moments I’ve had occur in classes both were [negligent discharges] while re-hol...

Cook and Brother was one of the largest and most successful of the private ordnance factories in the South during the Civil War. It was formed by two British brothers who had moved to New Orleans, Frederick and Francis Cook. They opened a rifle factory at the intersection of Common and Canal streets, and began making Enfield pattern rifles. A contract was soon procured for sale of a thousand rifles to the state of Alabama, and in total they produced about 1100 rifles in New Orleans before the city fell to the Union. When that happened, they managed a hectic evacuation, and the armory was reestablished in Athens Georgia by early 1863. Production there took some time to ramp back up due to labor shortages, and they produced only about another thousand rifles in 1863. By this time they had a large contract with the CSA government, and managed an impressive 4500 more guns in 1864, before the entire enterprise collapsed as the CSA became unable to make payments.

Ripping open the pouch with his gritty teeth, he hastily poured gun powder down the barrel, followed by a large ball of molten lead. The sound of metal against metal pierced the air while removing the cumbersome ram rod from its holder as he attempted to pack down the concoction with the hopes of getting off one good shot.

Shooting the 1860 Henry Rifle

by Dave Markowitz in Blog O'Stuff at 18:42, Monday, 19 March

Yesterday I went out to a friend's place and we put 100 rounds through the Cimarron Firearms 1860 Henry. The ammunition was 50 rounds each of two different loads:

First, .44 Henry Flat rimfire-equivalent loads:

  • Starline brass
  • CCI large pistol primers
  • 28 grains Goex 3Fg black powder
  • 0.5cc of cornmeal, to take up airspace
  • 219 grain bullet cast from an Accurate Molds 43-215C mold

The second 50 rounds were as above, but with a full charge of 35 grains of 3Fg Goex and no cornmeal filler.

My first ten shots, fired offhand from about 40 - 45 yards:


A couple of weeks ago I ordered a Cimarron Firearms 1860 Henry Civil War model rifle from Buffalo Arms, the same place I got my Cimarron 1873 Sporting Rifle from two years ago. The Henry arrived at my FFL last week and I did the transfer on Thursday. Like the 1873, the Henry is chambered for .44-40 / .44 WCF. I shot it for the first time yesterday.

Learn From My Stupid

by Clayton Cramer in Clayton Cramer. at 16:03, Monday, 19 March

A couple years back, I moved some of my maturing bonds into various high yielding stocks.  You should always keep track of how the stocks are doing; far more important than for stock mutual funds.  A number have dropped in value because rising bond yields made them less advantageous.  A few that paid handsome dividends (like Frontier Telephone: FTR), no longer pay a dividend.  A couple of the stocks that are technically partnerships have disappointing returns that make the annoying paperwork of Schedule K-1 at tax time too much work.  (One still has a 10% annual return.  I'll keep that one.)

Instead of buying high yield common stock, buy mutual funds or preferred stocks.  My Barclays preferred stock has been giving me 8.125% dividends annually for many years.  While there are no guarantees, the preferred stocks often have some minimum surrender value.

Ruger:RGR and American Outdoor Products: AOBC, owner of Smith & Wesson have been beat up by impending gun control, more than makes any rational sense; both firms have significant product lines in no danger.  Buying because you respect what a company does is never w...

Which body parts…?

by Kathy Jackson in Cornered Cat at 16:27, Monday, 19 March

Key point 1: Injuries from loaded guns nearly always arise from longstanding bad habits with unloaded ones.

Key point 2: Being aware of how injuries happen helps people better understand what they need to do in order to stay safe.

Did you ever wonder — and yes, I know this is a little morbid, but bear with me — about the ways that people shoot themselves unintentionally? Or about the type of injuries they are most likely to get?

Not talking here about people who inadvertently or even recklessly shoot someone else. Or about someone who shoots themselves or someone else on purpose. I’m talking about good people, people like us, who simply make a terrible mistake. These are people who are stone-cold sober and possibly even supervised at the range, but who fire a round without meaning to and somehow shoot themselves when they do.

Did you ever wonder which body parts they were most likely to hit, and why?

I mean, I understand it can be difficult to know what you’re talking about but you seem capable of research since you can put words on the internet. He refers to it as gunsplaining. A term which should be given the same level of credibility as mansplaining and white privilege (i.e., none).

If you’re advocating for a policy change of legislation, it helps to know what the fuck you’re talking about. And you don’t and that makes you look like a hack.

Individual probable cause? It’s not necessary to get a warrant anymore, at least not in North Carolina. Cops there are now getting warrants for any phone within up to a 17 acre area near a crime. From WRAL:

In at least four investigations last year – cases of murder, sexual battery and even possible arson at the massive downtown fire in March 2017 – Raleigh police used search warrants to demand Google accounts not of specific suspects, but from any mobile devices that veered too close to the scene of a crime, according to a WRAL News review of court records. These warrants often prevent the technology giant for months from disclosing information about the searches not just to potential suspects, but to any users swept up in the search.

Nowadays you can find even obscure pieces of classical music but a click away on YouTube (such as the Wolf’s Glen scene from Weber’s Der Freischuetz, I mean, that’s amazing really).   In the past, music majors such as my high-school choir teacher and Juilliard alum David Pool would have to dig through a Schwann catalog to find vinyl pressings or tapes of obscure-but-required pieces for their studies, generally recorded by equally obscure ensembles.

Pool used to joke that as a result of all this, he and and his Juilliard classmate Charles Emerson Winchester III had between them the most extensive collection of recorded works by the Chamber Society of Lower East Cleveland.

Self-Driving cars: the killer app

Last night a woman was struck by an autonomous Uber vehicle in Tempe, Arizona. She later died of her injuries in the hospital.

The deadly collision—reported by ABC15 and later confirmed to Gizmodo by Uber and Tempe police—took place around 10PM at the intersection of Mill Avenue and Curry Road, both of which are multi-lane roads. Autonomous vehicle developers often test drive at night, during storms, and other challenging conditions to help their vehicles learn to navigate in a variety of environments.
Think about that last sentence for a moment.  The implication is that these things aren't very good in a variety of environments.

Der Schmied (The Smith)

by Zendo Deb in 357 Magnum at 12:20, Monday, 19 March

I have become sort of fond of a style of music known as Neue Deutsche Härte, or New German Hardness. Aside from the lyrics being in German, it reminds me of hard rock from days gone by.

This is “Der Schmied” by the group Stahlmann from their 2013 album Adamant. I hear echos of a hard rock song in the opening, but I can’t pull a name out of memory. You can find the lyrics and their translation at this link, though sometimes it’s easier to enjoy the music if you aren’t 100% clear on what they are singing. But any song that uses the ringing of an anvil, can’t be all bad.

David French think it’s high time the NRA got on board with Gun Violence Restraining Orders, and praises it as a good move. I don’t agree it’s a good move, but I think it’s probably a necessary one. French seems to think this will make a difference, but I’m going to bet you even if we pass GVROs in every state, we’re still going to have mass shootings. French seems to believe gun control will work. It won’t. It’s never worked. In the Parkland case, they had every opportunity to take action under current laws, and no one ever bothered. This would just have been one more crack the killer would have fallen through, and everyone knows it.

03/15/18 CBS Los Angeles:

LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — A man who once won a $19 million lottery jackpot pleaded guilty Thursday to four federal counts of bank robbery, authorities said.
James Allen Hayes, 55, who was also known as James Killen and Ceaser Killen, was indicted last October in connection with bank heists in Newhall, Valencia and Santa Barbara counties. Authorities say he is believed to be the PT Cruiser Bandit and the Seasoned Bandit, so named by the FBI for his gray/white hair.
In each heist, the robber slipped a note to the teller demanding cash and threatening to shoot if they did not comply, according to the indictment....
Hayes was a Ventura security guard supervisor on the graveyard shift in January of 1998 when he won a $19 million SuperLotto jackpot. His ex-wife reportedly took half the jackpot, and Hayes ended up with a $6 million lump sum and a $1,000-a-week heroin habit.

1938 Phantom Corsair

by JDZ in Never Yet Melted at 08:22, Monday, 19 March

1938 Phantom Corsair — The Phantom Corsair is a prototype automobile built in 1938. It is a six-passenger 2-door sedan that was designed by Rust Heinz of the H. J. Heinz family and Maurice Schwartz of the Bohman & Schwartz coachbuilding company in Pasadena, California.

Rust Heinz planned to put the Phantom Corsair, which cost approximately $24,000 to produce in 1938 (equivalent to about $370,000 in 2010), into limited production at an estimated selling price of $12,500. However, Heinz’s death in a car accident in July 1939 ended those plans, leaving the prototype Corsair as the only one ever built.

Akarate Zach took 2nd place in Category, and 4th place overall in the main match.
Belle took 2nd in Category, and stayed alive till the 6th round of the Main match.  Eh also shot well in Brackets, staying alive long past where she thought she would be.

I read a lot of RKBA news. Seriously: A lot. (And that matters, as you’ll see.)

One theme that started popping up last week is the idea that RKBA advocates are somehow losing the culture war.

If you read the national news (or watch television, or get your news from mainstream web sites), that’s an easy conclusion to reach. So long as you don’t look too closely.

As I said, I read a lot of news. I must, to put together the weekly TZP news summary. Besides my casual browsing, I use several pre-built news searches on a variety of terms. The terms were selected to produce headlines from various points of view.

Probably 90% of the actual results reflect only one point of view; that RKBA is losing. You see it in “news” reports and Letters to the Editor (LtE) alike. You see it in polls and surveys.

And it’s BS.

Not to defend the NRA, but did you see the “news” story ...

Turns out that, years before he committed the school shooting, two school counselors and the school security guard (yes, that one) recommended that the shooter be committed, based on his cutting himself, telling another classmate to get a gun and use it on people, drinking gasoline, etc.. But no one acted on it.

What is telling to me is that they all "recommended" this. Nobody did anything, all passed the buck (I suspect to the principal, who probably had nowhere to pass the buck and so they settled for ignoring it). If a kid had nibbled a cookie into the shape of a gun, they probably would have imposed discipline, because the kid was harmless and so it was safe to beat up on them. But with a person who was really a problem, it was best to ignore it or pass the buck. Which in a way is a metaphor for modern gun (and crime) control.

UPDATE: Speaking of which, a New Jersey school suspend...

A Call to Resistance

by ASM826 in Borepatch at 08:02, Monday, 19 March

From Fatale Abstraction comes a post everyone should read.  The topic is the idea that young people have been trained to be so passive that they will not resist even when their lives are at stake. By the end of it I could hear John Williams playing in the background.

Here's a quote:

My mind keeps going back to the eternal question about the Jews and the Nazi death camps: “Why did no one resist? Why did no one fight?” The answers to these questions would probably be as baffling and heartbreaking as anything else about the story itself. In his superb book Ordinary Men, Christopher R. Browning tells of how during the Nazi terror in Poland, 8,000 Jews were loaded onto a train that was overseen by only 20 guards. Can you imagine this? That crowd of humans--even if only a quarter of them were of ...

Brave victims today expose a Telford grandfather as the evil paedophile who sold children for sex in a house of horrors. 

Police were tipped off about Shahzad “Keith” Khan as far back as 1996 but he was allowed to run his “Rape House” for years. 

He regularly picked up one sex slave outside a local police station.

I'm not going to excerpt any more from this, just go read it.

And reflect that of all the people who turned a blind eye to this shit, not one of them will pay any penalty.

and the Sheriff's Office:

BREAKING: Deputy and counselors recommended institutionalizing Nikolas Cruz long before deadly massacre at Florida school.
— The Associated Press (@AP) March 18, 2018
School counselors and a deputy wanted him institutionalized under Florida’s Baker Act, which would have made him a prohibited person, but that never happened either.
But let's blame the gun.  And the NRA.  And the Stupid Party.  Blame ANYONE except the murderer and the idiots who had dozens of chances to do something, and failed.

Dashcam Video of the FIU Bridge Collapse

by Zendo Deb in 357 Magnum at 07:36, Monday, 19 March

Left here without comment.


Faced with a generation of defeat in the gun debate, the Left is increasingly turning to one of its favorite weapons in the culture war, stigma. It’s mobilizing its tribe — including progressive corporations, Hollywood, and the mainstream media — to not just make policy arguments but also to shame and insult Americans who disagree. The goal is to make gun ownership culturally toxic.

But shame is weaker than love. Gun owners who’ve experienced a threat possess or carry a weapon because they love their families. Teachers who wish to carry a weapon at school do so because they love the kids under their care. These folks know that their responsible gun ownership makes their communities and families safer.

Why does the Left keep losing the gun debate? Because it’s hard to persuade any man or woman to surrender an unalienable right — especially when exercising that right helps preserve the most vital right of all, the right to live.

Shooting a Suppressed Sten Gun

by Ian McCollum in Forgotten Weapons at 06:27, Monday, 19 March

During World War Two, the British spent several years developing a silenced version of the Sten gun for special operations commandos and for dropping to mainland European resistance units. This is a recreation of one of the experimental types, based on a MkII Sten with the receiver lengthened into an integral suppressor. So – how does it shoot?

CCI Ammunition is pleased to announce an addition to its popular Mini-Mag rimfire product line. New Mini-Mag Segmented Hollow Point combines all of what made the original a favorite with a bullet engineered to split into three equal-size parts on impact, creating three distinct wound channels that quickly take down small game and varmints.

For hikers, a backpack is everything. It carries your gear; it doubles as a pillow, and it is a reflection of all the places you’ve been and dirt you’ve sat in. Just as your backpack represents everything you love about the outdoors, it can also be your biggest burden.

Choosing the wrong backpack, packing it the wrong way, and even loading it wrong can all make your hike hard but the life of your favorite hobby that much shorter. It’s the difference between taking in a glorious view and enjoying that view with a twinge in your neck and a sore spot on your lower back.

Packing a backpack is both art and science. We’re going to share precisely how to do it with you here by showing you the importance of:

The best part about Tactical Conference 2018 was that it was three days of being more or less entirely  unplugged.

We were leaving the hotel at 6:30 so as to arrive at the range before 7:00, in time to get signed up for some of the more in-demand classes. Lunch was on-site and we didn't head back to the hotel until after five, and then all three nights I had dinner with friends and colleagues (some of whom I hadn't seen face-to-face since last year) until late.

While I did my usual motel room habit of letting the TV drone softly with cable news while I slept, I didn't pay it a ton of attention. I'm also now three days behind on work and email, but it was worth it.

My batteries are pretty charged, and I added at least one more class to my training roster for the year (Gabe White in Missouri in June). Plus I have more stuff to write about. I may even try the novel tactic of pitching it to editors instead of waiting for them to come to me.

and nobody knows anything except 'Someone is setting bombs'.

From a member of the DC council:
“Man, it just started snowing out of nowhere this morning, man. Y’all better pay attention to this climate control, man, this climate manipulation,” he says. “And D.C. keep talking about, ‘We a resilient city.’ And that’s a model based off the Rothschilds controlling the climate to create natural disasters they can pay for to own the cities, man. Be careful.”
'It's the JOOOOS!'  Bloody hell.

Doctors, Big Pharma and the Opioid Crisis

There is little doubt that the doctors and the industry put blinders on in order to make money. The War on (Some) Drug™ was making supply a very good business to be in. 5 NYC doctors charged with taking kickbacks for fentanyl prescriptions – CBS News

You could file this under “Doctors Behaving Badly.”

Five New York City doctors were arrested Friday on charges that they accepted bribes and kickbacks from an Arizona-based pharmaceutical company to prescribe large volumes of a highly addictive painkiller. Prosecutors say the doctors, four men and a woman, collected tens of thousands of dollars working for the company’s “Speakers Bureau” over a four-year stretch beginning in August 2012.

63 Winchester

No failures (but I still haven't cleaned it...  after I am done with the Winchester I will...  Filthy.)

Oh my.  There are two types of ways of me going fast.  "Make trigger go NOW" which is how I usually shot for years and years.  And that get's the flinchies  And "Whatever, you've been here before, you know how to pull the trigger right, do it without thought." And that compressed surprise-break happens

They look the same, but the second is marginally faster and much more accurate.

Students across the nation walked out of school Wednesday in honor of the victims of the Parkland shooting last month, including a group of New London kindergarteners.

While people involved in the walkout involving a group of 5-year-olds at Harbor Elementary School said the demonstration was about school safety, student safety and parent permission have been called into question.

"It was discussed, it was a safety march and we took them out and they chanted 'we love school' and 'honk your horn.' And we told them that the 17 angels are above in heaven, they’re watching down and they’re proud," one parent, Olga Vokolou, said.

That Bridge Collapse

by Clayton Cramer in Clayton Cramer. at 21:54, Sunday, 18 March

Reason points to a report about the federal program that funded it.

Specifically, DOT did not document key decisions to (a) accept and review applications received after the published deadline; (b) advance projects with lower technical ratings instead of more highly-rated projects, and its procedures were inconsistent with DOT’s internal guidelines; and (c) change the technical ratings of lower-rated projects selected for funding to the highest technical rating category. 
Could not have played a part, right?
MIAMI — On the day an 11th grader named Nikolas Cruz told another student that he had a gun at home and was thinking of using it, two guidance counselors and a sheriff’s deputy at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., concluded that he should be forcibly committed for psychiatric evaluation, according to mental health records obtained on Sunday by The New York Times.
An involuntary commitment of that kind, under the authority of a Florida state law known as the Baker Act, could have kept Mr. Cruz from passing a background check required to buy a firearm.
But Mr. Cruz appears never to have been institutionalized despite making threats to himself and others, cutting his arms with a pencil sharpener and claiming he had drunk gasoline in a possible attempt to kill himself, all in a five-day period in September 2016.
The revelation that school officials considered trying to commit Mr. Cruz under the Baker Act in 2016 appeared to be another in a string of missed opportunities...

There Shall Be No Darkness

Twelve years ago I cited James Blish’s “There Shall Be No Darkness” as the best werewolf short fiction bar none, but unlike the quite unrelated Lovecraftian tale “Than Curse The Darkness,” I couldn’t find TSBND online to post or excerpt here.

Girl on the ferry

by Joe in The View From North Central Idaho at 16:31, Sunday, 18 March

Last weekend Barb and I went over to the peninsula to have dinner with some friends. This involved a ferry crossing and I took a picture of this girl pretending to fly like one of the seagulls floating in the air ahead of the ferry:


I am sure that you know that slang expression "hooker" is commonly believed to be derived from the name of Civil War General Joseph Hooker, who has a statue outside the Boston legislature.  The entrance door near it is called, for no apparent reason, the General Hooker Entrance. 3/15/18 CBS Boston:

BOSTON (CBS) – A Massachusetts lawmaker wants the “General Hooker Entrance” sign removed from the State House because she calls it a double entendre “misrepresented as respect for a long-dead general.”
Michelle DuBois – a state representative from Brockton, West Bridgewater, and East Bridgewater – tweeted a picture of the sign on Wednesday, saying “#MeToo it’s not all about rape & harassment but also women’s dignity.”
So she thinks, what?  The statue was put up to justify the double entendre entrance name?  I think her parents named her Michelle because they knew America's first black First Lady would be named Michelle.

Oh yes:
A rumor also...

A recurring question that we are asked, not only by gun control advocates, but even by a number of gun owners is, "What's wrong with mandatory gun registration?" Usually by the time we finish telling them about the Supreme Court decision U.S. v. Haynes (1968), they are laughing -- and they understand our objection to registration.

Registration??   Fat chance, and slim chance ... your choice, Legislators!

There is an emerging legislative requirement for  Firearms Owners to join a list of nasty people who own  guns.  This is presented as a public health issue ... what if your gun is stolen? 
According to this MANDATORY law, you should  have previously identified a stolen gun (which may have subsequently been used in a crime, and you should have already reported it even if you were not aware of your loss) as "Not Now Yours").

(Some states MANDATE that you must report a "stolen gun" ... I'm not sure how that works out; if someone steals your gun and uses it to commit a crime, are you...

A professor of structural engineering takes a look at the bridge collapse in Miami. FIU Bridge Collapse: Why Müller-Breslau Matters.

The mavens of engineering, who have been screaming for more social justice and less rigor in engineering have been strangely silent this week. And the media is run by a bunch of people who had trouble with high-school algebra, so they are not much help. It was nice to see an article by someone who takes the rigor seriously.

Dr Oliver McGee is a Professor and former Chair (2016-17) of the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Texas Tech University.

Apocalypse Chow

by Joel in The Ultimate Answer to Kings at 09:35, Sunday, 18 March

Some blogger I am. I neglected to take a picture of the lovely pork and potatoes breakfast I roasted early this morning in celebration of the really crappy weather.

Right on schedule the temperature fell, the wind rose and the snow blew by like bullets. Not very cold and hardly any snow so far. But windy enough to make 40o feel like 20o.

Forewarned, I took the precaution of pulling out one of the 1-pound billets of frozen pork roast Landlady brought up week before last and let it thaw overnight. That had the double advantage of warming the cabin without having to deal with the woodstove, and of being roast pork.

Meanwhile just to spoil the aroma I’m testing the gaskets on some fancy tire valves Big Brother sent me some time ago.


Public School Teachers must be more racist than David Duke.

10 Worst Holsters for Women

by Kathy Jackson in Cornered Cat at 08:21, Sunday, 18 March

Gosh, I dunno about you, but I’m tired of seeing the same three articles written “for women” that we see over and over again in the firearms press. One of my friends, a well known writer who I’ll leave anonymous here because reasons, gripes that she has repeatedly been asked to write that article — you know, the one about best concealed carry guns “for women”, as if these mechanical objects magically function differently for us than they do for anyone else. Every female writer in the business has gotten the same request from her editors, believe me. And it’s annoying.

Same thing with holsters, really.

You want to know the best holster “for women”? I’ll tell you. It’s whatever fits your firearm and your budget that meets the following three criteria:

  • protects the trigger reliably,
  • holds the gun securely, and
  • allows the user to access the gun at the very moment they need it.

A baker’s dozen ™ dealing with school murders

By Nathan Barton

A Baker’s Dozen ™ Actions to Prevent, Mitigate, and Prevent Armed Attacks on Schools in The Fifty States

There are constant screams about “banning guns” and raising the age, increasing screening of gun-buyers, and many other measures to “prevent” armed attacks (or at least attacks using guns) in schools. Most of us (and anyone able to reason moderately well without excessive emotion) knows that these will not work. These “solutions” have risen to a crescendo since the Valentine’s Day killing spree in Florida, punctuated by the March 14th nationwide children’s crusade.

However, there are some things which could reduce the threat of armed attacks on and murder in the public schools. Some of these have been discussed and even proposed on a limited basis, others apparently not even touched on:

1. Eliminate the federal “gun-free zone” established in and around schools. These zones create hunting preserves. The rate of such attacks has increased co...

Is Socialized Medicine Stuck in the Past?

Because people don’t have a choice, why should they do anything differently? Million patients a year needlessly enduring major surgery as NHS hospitals are not adopting modern practices, research finds

A million patients a year could be needlessly enduring major surgery because NHS hospitals are not adopting modern practices, research has found.

Up to three quarters of patients who could have keyhole procedures are forced to undergo open surgery, putting them at higher risk of blood loss, pain and infection.

The adoption of new methods would seem to be a result of competition. Because without an outside force, or without patients who have the ability to choose, doctors and hospitals will keep doing things the traditional ways. An then there are the bureaucrats who need to approve the purchase of new equipment for the new procedures. Even when it is clear that the new ways of doing things (keyhole surgery) are a huge benefit to the patients.

Spring is almost here, and its arrival is greeted with a mini-blizzard in the UK. Snow hits Britain: Flights cancelled as ‘mini Beast from the East’ sweeps in. I blame global warming. (Or is it climate change?)

I know I shouldn’t laugh at other people’s misery, this isn’t a real snow storm. (I grew up in Chicagoland – greater Chicago for those of you not from Illinois. Things didn’t stop or even slow down much unless there was close to a foot of snow.) Britain is woefully unequipped to handle snow. If you click through, the image they show indicates about one half inch. And it appears the temperature is high enough to let the snow melt off the roads. (Since I don’t think they are using salt or brine, that puts the temperature at about 28 degrees Fahrenheit or better.)

Weaponized Social Networks

by Sebastian in Shall Not Be Questioned at 09:33, Sunday, 18 March

This scenario is harrowing, and I already see some evidence of it. My mother’s side of my family and some friends on social media have gone commented and shared a lot on social media that aims to socially shame me and other gun people out of shooting and our opinions on the matter. It does not come close to rising to this level, but I see things headed in that direction.

One of the weaponized social networks I’m currently covering is a loosely connected network built on a newly emergent consensus morality (#metoo, etc.).  A consensus that it uses to successfully wield social, and increasingly, political power.

This moral network recently expanded with the addition of the #neveragain movement, after the Parkland shootings.  In the past, a movement like #neveragain would be focused on gun control through changes in government legislation.  Now that it’s part of this weaponized moral network, that focus is going to change.

The midterm elections usually go against the party in the Whitehouse.  And the gun banners are in it to win it this next cycle, too.  So, if trends hold out, Dems will win big in the House, at least, and the gun banners will spin this to "See?  Siding with us on gun control now wins elections for you!  This is 1994, but turned upside down.  We are on the right side of history, now, and you better get with us."

So it might be kind of important to counter that now, NRA, hint hint.  Maybe highlight how the failures of Democrats resulted in the massacre. 

Oh, I need to donate more to them.  Maybe the Second Amendment Foundation, too.

Lancaster Four-Barrel Shotgun With Double-Action Trigger

by Ian McCollum in Forgotten Weapons at 06:27, Sunday, 18 March

Charles Lancaster started his unmaking business in London in 1826, and it would survive more than one hundred years, being run after Charles’ death by his sons and then by an apprentice who bought out the firm in 1878. The company had an excellent reputation for quality, and did some pioneering work on developing the modern breechloading shotgun, as well as interesting technological developments like Lancaster’s oval-bore rifling. One of their most notable products was a series of 2-barrel and 4-barrel handguns, and they expanded the mechanism from those into a small number of 4-barrel shotguns (and an even smaller number of 4-barrel rifles).

This particular four-barrel shotgun is in 20 gauge, and exhibits a unique trigger mechanism derived from the pistols. It has two triggers, with the bottom one acting as a cocking lever and the top as a firing trigger. This allows the shooter to either cock the gun and then make a careful shot with the l...

"Women don't like about this!"

Yes, some of them do.  I hope he sues Yale for a large part of their endowment, and the prosecutors are PC-brained idiots who should lose their jobs.

Lots of members aren't as happy about being associated with a racist asshole as the leadership is.  And get this:
Mallory, Perez and Sarsour are backed by Women’s March board member and fashion designer Bob Bland, who tweeted in defense of Mallory that “being held directly accountable for the words of any man is misogynistic.”
Yeah.  Because holding someone to account for SUPPORTING said words is woman-hating.  Because... reasons.   Farging assholes.

Amazon caught deleting reviews of works by conservative/libertarian authors.  Response to questions is basically "Screw you."

Texas State Day 2

by Pawpaw in PawPaw's House at 15:25, Saturday, 17 March

We're doing good, still alive after seven rounds.  Belle went out in the 6th round, but feels good about it.  Zach is seeded 5th in the youth, and I'm still in it, but I'm bleeding bad and dragging a leg.

Tomorrow is brackets.  That should be a lot of fun.

But, trying to get a picture with my gal today, my buddy Delta Whiskey photo-bombs us.

Ain't that a shame?  See what w have to put up with?

Last year Federal Premium sent me some test loads of their newest addition of American Eagle Syntech 150 grain Action Pistol to chronograph. Before running them over my chrono, I shot a few rounds out of my M&P CORE. I was amazed, but sad. The loads felt incredibly soft and I knew there was just no […]

“Being a victim is not a choice, but becoming a survivor is.”- Kimberly Corban Toys, Tools, Guns & Rules, my book about gun safety for children has been featured in the media and I am so grateful!

March 15th is a significant day for the National Rifle Association Board of Directors. It marks the last day of 2018 to sign up as a voting member! Right now mainstream media and anti-gun politicians are wrongfully blaming American gun owners for atrocities and murder. From boycotts to billboards, the hate aimed at millions of […]

What do you see when you think of an open gun? Many picture a race gun, the type of fine tuned machine built for speed in practical shooting (IPSC and USPSA) or the Steel Challenge. In NRA Action Pistol, open division firearms are purpose-built too. Designed to shoot accurately, they have features that make shooting […]

From safety rules to scoring and the different divisions within practical shooting the Front Sight Annual serves as a virtual handout that provides […]

Over the past few months a number of people have reached out to me and have asked about the NRA Board of Directors and what they do. NRA Family has an informative piece about the background of the NRA BOD that discusses the history and how board members are elected. How much do you know about […]

Self-defense Is Legal in the State of Washington

by Zendo Deb in 357 Magnum at 15:03, Saturday, 17 March

How should a woman respond when a man knocks her to the ground and climbs on top of her? No charges for woman who killed man on side of Interstate 5 | The News Tribune

He was upset with the way she was riding her motorcycle. He boxed her in with his crossover SUV and confronted her on the side of the road.

Jones started a fight with the woman and at some point she head-butted him. Jones then slammed the woman’s head into a jersey barrier and took her to the ground.

As Jones tried to climb on top of her, she shot him in the chest with a handgun. He died at the scene.

She acted in self-defense, and so will not be charged, because self-defense is a human-right. Good Guys 1, Bad Guys 0.



This is what they think of you

by Joe in The View From North Central Idaho at 11:31, Saturday, 17 March

From Scientific American:

Who is buying all these guns—and why?

The short, broad-brush answer to the first part of that question is this: men, who on average possess almost twice the number of guns female owners do. But not all men. Some groups of men are much more avid gun consumers than others. The American citizen most likely to own a gun is a white male—but not just any white guy. According to a growing number of scientific studies, the kind of man who stockpiles weapons or applies for a concealed-carry license meets a very specific profile.

These are men who are anxious about their ability to protect their families, insecure about their place in the job market, and beset by racial fears. They tend to be less educated. For the most part, they don’t appear to be religious—...

It’s related to the principal reason.

Inside my nostril?

I am pushing 50 years old.  Well beyond the life expectancy for the long majority of human history.  For all the people that came before me, I am and OLD man to most all of them.

Why do I still get teenage pimples?  I should be decades past that.

Inside the nostril just adds insult to injury.

Turlough O'Carolan - Si Bheag Si Mhor

by Borepatch in Borepatch at 11:51, Saturday, 17 March

The Dropkick Murphys are Irish(ish), but not traditional.  You want traditional for St. Paddy's Day?  You don't get more traditional Irish than Turlough O'Carolan.  This is one of his most famous compositions, done (as it would have been in his day) on the harp.
