Mope gets points for being the first to send news.
Ladies and gentlemen, tell me this ain’t purdy.
While I was doing a little shopping, Hubby was having some fun at the local gun show. This is Texas. We have local gun shows every weekend. Anyway, that little gem caught his eye. It’s a Browning™ Buck Mark .22 long rifle, with rosewood grips engraved with the Browning™ emblem, matte finish, fiberoptic front sight, with scope rail, and it came in the original box with an extra magazine. That made my BIL a bit jealous because those suckers are expensive, even for .22. The kids are all fighting over it, which is fine because I am quite content to have the HK .40 S&W for my own. And let’s not forget my little Bersa™ Thunder .380, either.
Now, the AR-15? Yeah, that one they will have to wait until I die for them to fight over
I think the military needs to get this contract.
A company in northern Idaho has come up with a culturally sensitive approach. Jihawg Ammo has developed a proprietary system for infusing ballistic paint with pork. The special pork-infused paint is then applied to the bullets of loaded ammunition. The inclusion of pork in the paint makes the bullets haraam, or unclean. Under Islamic law, anyone who comes in contact with any haraam item is then unclean and must engage in a cleansing ritual. No unclean person can be admitted into Paradise. Do not pass Go. Do not collect 72 virgins. (From WND)
I ask you: how many of the islamojihadist jackwagons would take the risk, knowing they would NOT get into “Paradise”??

Someone call Diane Feinstein.
Hey, DiFi, FUCK YOU!!
Have a great Saturday
They never let a crisis go to waste.
Several Democratic lawmakers called for a new push for U.S. gun restrictions on Sunday, including a ban on military-style assault weapons, in the wake of the Connecticut massacre in which 20 children and six adults were gunned down in a school.
Because ONLY “assault weapons” were used at the Sandy Hook terror attack. Yes, I do think it was a terror attack.
Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein, the author of an assault-weapons ban that lapsed in 2004, said she would introduce new legislation this week. Senator Dick Durbin, the chamber’s No. 2 Democrat, said lawmakers would hold hearings on gun control, and several others said they would devote new attention to the long-ignored issue.
“I think we could be at a tipping point … where we might get something done,” Senator Charles Schumer, another top Senate Democrat, said on CBS’s “Face the Nation.”
Because the guns killed those adults and children. I find it ironic that the person calling for a new ban holds a permit to conceal carry.
Republican Representative Louie Gohmert said (when asked why citizens would need to own semi-automatic weapons), “Well, for the reason George Washington said: a free people should be an armed people. It ensures against the tyranny of the government, if they know that the biggest army is the American people.”
Gohmert added, “Once you start drawing the line, where do you stop? … Gun laws don’t work.”
Just ask Chicago or Washington, D.C.
They want to take away our right to bear arms? Fine, then take it away from every single person, starting with the Secret Service, LEOs, and other federal agents. Every politician has to give up their entitled security. But what about the bad guys, you ask?? Well, guarantee me they will give up their weapons, too, and you have got a deal!
The only type of gun control that works is the type where you hit your target center mass.
Apparently, someone who shall remain nameless is too busy to put up eye candy, so the job falls to yours truly.
It’s Sunday, but this is appropriate for every single day.
Have a great day, and remember: “gun control” means hitting your target
This guy has lots of gun-related videos on YouTube. The guy seems to know his stuff and makes good use of humor in his videos.
You might take a look at the rest of his stuff on YouTube.
To the shores of Tripoli!!!
You look wonderful for being 236 years old.

The unit -- 2nd Platoon, Bravo Company, 2nd Battalion, 503rd Infantry Regiment (ABN), 173rd Airborne Brigade Combat Team
For those of you unaware of the name and the story, it is an outpost named after one of the first soldiers killed at that outpost in the Korengal Valley in Afghanistan (The Korengal Valley was regarded as “the deadliest place on Earth”). The story is about the soldiers who went in and set up an outpost in the middle of the night and how they fought to keep it!
If you have not seen the movie…GET IT, WATCH IT, then WATCH IT AGAIN!! It is an emotional, fierce and in-your-face documentary. It received the Grand Jury Prize for best documentary at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival. (One of the directors, Tim Hetherington, was the photojournalist killed in Libya on 20 April, 2011).
But now…to the trailer at the official web site. It is a peek into one OP of many and what some of our soldiers go through every day.
R.I.P. PFC Restrepo and your brothers that died there with you. You and your brethren display the TRUE American soldier!!
Restrepo, A Year In Afghanistan is going to be shown on National Geographic channel Monday 25 April at 9pm, Eastern.

As a soldier who has been Reserve, National Guard and Active….this video (yeah, it’s a bit old) still makes my eyes mist a bit. It used to be (Pre 9-11) that the Guard and Reserves were considered second class soldiers. I know, because when I went from Active Duty to a short stint in the Guard, I had the same opinion. We all used to hear stories of Reservists and the Guard guys taking beer chests and coolers to their two week AT (Annual Training). And hell, they only met one weekend a month!! How can you be ready for combat with THAT limited time?
But I can assure you that mentality WILL never be like that again. Some Guard and Reserve units have deployed more than most Active units. I have personally trained Guard and Reservists on going on their third, fourth and fifth deployments. (I also deployed as a Reservist, so I have seen the look we get from Active soldiers! Little did they know I still had more Active and combat time than they did!!)
But to the video….and BTW, 3 Doors Down did this video for FREE!!! They did not ask for ANY money from the National Guard!!! TRUE PATRIOTS!!!
(I personally love the Blackhawk coming in with an Apache package support!! Been there, done that!!! And it IS a rush!!)
“Hope and pray that you never need me,
but rest assured I will not let you down….
I walk beside you, but you may not see me….
The strongest among you may not wear a crown!”
Bonus points if you can name the left shoulder patches in the first scenes without Google!! HINT- it is NOT New Mexico! And I trained this unit!
