Ammo For Sale

The smartest woman in the world

I wish Hillary Clinton would just go away. Funny how losing Republicans tend to but not Dems. But I digress.

In a world where a Bernie bro shot hundreds of rounds at Republican lawmakers*, seriously injuring one; Rand Paul was beaten up by a Democrat; someone attempted to stab a republican; and democrats are rioting in the streets; she says:

You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about,

She may be right. Only not for her party.

Rand Paul is concerned that someone is going to get killed.

* Funny how that one didn’t really get wall to wall media coverage.

Most of us call that reloading

The NYT calls it DIY ammunition.

Another product created by stupid gun laws

The Remington V3 Tac-13. It’s a 13 inched barrel shotgun that doesn’t require going through the NFA process.

Shotty v. Carbine

Tam has some wise words on the topic. I’m likely to go with carbine and it’s not that I think shotties are bad. My shotty is too long. And, at casa de unc, I have a sooper seekrit area where I keep an AR-15 accessible within a few seconds but you’d never know it was there. And my shotty is definitely too long for that location.

I’d like to see comparable rifle and shotgun data.

I concur

I, too, have never gotten the appeal of horror movies. Mostly, because I don’t really dig the gore and because I get so mad watching them when the characters do something irretrievably stupid. And most horror movies would be over in about two minutes if someone had a gun.

Knife bleg updated

Thanks for the comments. I had a kershaw with the wave. Didn’t much care for the flimsy blade. A few nuggets of truth from the comments:

Folders are for opening the mail, boxes from Amazon, or cutting salami.

Fixed blades are for self defense.

As for the fixed blade, I carry a clinch pick by shiv works. Do recommend.

And this is what I have recently figured out:

I cant tell you how many friends of mine called me crazy for carrying a $200+ dollar blade while showing me their $40-$60 Spydercos, Kershaws, and CRKTs. 5 years later theyre on their 4th and 5th knives broken/bent clips, screws falling out, pivot bearing failures and Im still carrying the same Emerson.

That is what I have been going through. I think I’m on Spyderco number 4. I snagged the Emerson Commander. We’ll see how it goes.

Bleg: Knife

I’ve liked my Spyderco knives with the Emerson Wave. But I’ve had not one but two shit the bed. I replaced one with the titanium clip and it’s held up, but the clip is getting wobbly and the screws are stripped. So, I want a new knife with the following criteria:

Sturdy clip
Has an Emerson wave
And is not ridiculously long

I’ve been looking into Emerson’s for a bit and am leaning toward this one. Anyone recommend or know of something else?

New Army caliber?

It makes the rounds every once in a while. The Army Times:

The Army has selected 6.8mm as the new common round for both its Squad Automatic Weapon and M4 replacement.

A Prototype Opportunity Notice posted on the government website fbo.gov is going to give three companies the chance to submit their versions of the new individual service rifle, the Next Generation Squad Weapon, chambered in 6.8mm, the same round that developers are using for the Next Generation Squad Automatic Rifle program.

Until recently, officials would only say that developers were being encouraged to look at requirements in the intermediate caliber range, somewhere between the existing 5.56mm and 7.62mm rounds common to individual, sniper and machine guns in the Armys inventory.

If true, 6.8 would be a very affordable round very quickly.

Grilled Okra

I’ve been remiss in posting the occasional recipe. So, here’s one. You can eat these like fries. In a bowl, toss in a pound or so of okra. Drizzle with olive oil and add salt and pepper:

Toss until it’s fairly evenly coated.

Skewer. I use two skewers so they’re easier to flip but for some reason, I found older photos:

Lightly char them:

You can eat them like fries. The flesh will be crunchy and the seeds will have a satisfying pop. Oh, and since these are like fries, you’ll need a “ketchup” or dipping sauce. I whisk together some of the juice from my aunt Rhonda’s canned sweet hot peppers with sour cream and some Italian seasoning. You likely don’t have any of that but a close substitute is the juice from Korean pickles or the juice from spicy bread and butter pickles:

So good:

Life in the future

A group of pranksters decided to write a bunch of hoax papers and see if they could get them published in their respective field’s academic journals. They got 7 published. One paper was on how dog parks promote rape culture. And another was a chapter from Mein Kampf where the author substituted “men” for “jews”.

The future is stupid. And scary. And also hilarious.

What you see here are bullet-shaped whiskey stones. Once chilled, they keep your whiskey cold without watering it down as ice cubes would. Anyhoo, whiskey stones are fine to pack in carry-on bags, but not when they look like live bullets. To bring them on a trip, youd have to bite the bullet and pack them in a checked bag. These were discovered recently in a carry-on bag at the LewistonNez Perce County Airport (LWS) in Idaho. These of course are not dangerous, and were not posting them to try and say we saved the day by finding them. This is just an attempt to pass along a friendly travel tip so others dont make the same mistake. While were talking about friendly travel tips, heres the scoop on traveling with ammo. This info could really help you dodge a bullet. Small arms ammunition (In checked bags only), including ammunition not exceeding .75 caliber and shotgun shells of any gauge must be securely boxed or included within a hard-sided case containing an unloaded firearm. As far as empty shell casings, theyre allowed through the checkpoint as long as the projectile is no longer intact, and the primer has been removed or has been discharged. If a bullet has no gun powder, yet still has the projectile attached, it is considered a replica and is not allowed in carry-on bags. These are common on necklaces and keychains. They need to be packed in checked baggage. #RandomThought Too much whiskey can lead to shooting your mouth off, so it could be said that youd be dodging a bullet by drinking in moderation. … #tsa #lws

One of the things I didn’t care for on the VP9 was the Walther style magazine release next to the trigger guard. I had a Walther p22 and, on more than one occasion, somehow dumped the magazine during a string of fire. Seems they’ve fixed that.

Bump stock ban soon?

The issue just sort of seemed to go away. But Trump is now saying that it’s coming in a few weeks. And that he’s told the NRA that. He then explains to the press about the rules and regulations. And public hearings. Trouble is, this plan is exactly wrong. To enact such a ban would require a law passed by congress. Not the interpretative legal gymnastics that occur at bureaucracies.

Why we win

Take someone shooting. They usually smile.

I think this is accurate

The Kavanaugh stuff is about abortion:

Yes, there are politicians including Governor Cuomo that would be upset if their signature gun control laws were shot down by SCOTUS. However, the main difference between the issues is that abortion has a legitimate grassroots surrounding it and gun control does not.

Gun control is largely astroturf.

You’re not voting your way out of this

Kevin:

Instead of what we had in our first Civil War which was state against state over a specific ideal, what we have now is urban versus rural and I don’t think the urbans realize just how many rurals there are. The rurals do not wish to be controlled by the urbans. And we will not put up with it if they try to impose their will on us.

We shall see.

Cool
