Sorry I haven’t been really putting up a lot of good quality content. Then again, I rarely have, but what with my brother being home for the week and still going out to the dam every day to do more measurements and surveys, the most I can seem to find time to do is my daily song and a few pictures (Which WordPress makes really easy to do if you have a smartphone, by the way). So today I’m going to give you a few links to click through.
First off, Butch Cassidy talks about giving up the gunny characteristic of “Buy every shiny toy you can fit in a safe, and then a couple more” and going to a “I will infect people who don’t have guns by giving them a nice starter rifle/shotgun/pistol, with a small supply of ammo and a good supply of information” system. He says “I want more people to be armed, I want more people to learn to shoot, I want more people to carry, I want more people to own decent holsters…” He is looking for suggestions and resources that he can give new shooters, so go over there and help him out.
Second, The Firearm Blog has a piece up about how a electronically-controlled grenade launcher system for the South Korean Military was kaboomed because of EM interference. Another check mark for the box of “NO ELECTRONICS IN MY GUNS, PLEASE,” to go along with all the others. As my uncle the mechanic is fond of saying for cars, “if it doesn’t have it, it can’t break.” The inside of a gun has enough levers and springs to go wrong as it is, and adding another layer of things to go wrong by way of a bunch of error-prone circuits just seems like a bad idea.
And last, in case you haven’t heard, Daddy Bear has moved from blogger to a WordPress site, https://daddybearsden.wordpress.com/. Adjust your links accordingly.
Well, that’s it for now, back to work!
