…but that’s just me. I try to avoid that place like the plague. I hope Mr. Perazzi takes them to court and cleans them out. Two or Three Billion isn’t too much to ask–make sure that they have to keep paying you in installments (with interest!) for the next 50 years.
Added: Apparently this story was a hoax? Or maybe not? Or maybe just a big clusterfuck of conflicting reports, denials of denials, ad absurdum? In any case, I still wouldn’t mind it if anyone of the last name “Perazzi” sued the City of Denver for $3,000,000,000.00.
I didn’t technically. My tax return went to support the Boulder Airlift. But in the same time frame I bought my spiffy new Pelican and decked it out with camouflage (with more stickers inbound!) and a new plastic toy. So plenty of my money (more than my tax return, I can say that) was sent off in return for gunny-related goods.
I was blowing the dust out of my holster and thought to take a picture is all.

I got a new toy the other day (which some of you may have figured out already)
Ope, wait, no that’s not it. That’s an old toy I dragged out of the closet when I was cleaning the upstairs last weekend.
This is the new one:
Kinda hard to tell them apart, both are just colored plastic with some clicky bits inside.
Butch convinced me that a CAV-15 polymer lower was the way to go, and since I got a load of Boulder Airlift Magpul mags, it seemed sad that I had nothing for them to go into. This way I have something grandfathered in, and can order all the other parts I want off the internet (assuming they ever come back into stock). Planning on making a nice little lightweight jobby eventually.
It’s a great thing, a polymer lower–it pisses off pretty much everyone on a gun forum!
“The Democrats have just handed me a sledgehammer and I get to walk through their china shop in the 2014 election”
Dudley Brown, director of the RMGO (see upper left sidebar for link)
That article lays out some serious stupidity on the part of the Democrats. John “Let the Cleansing Begin” Morse now says that he doesn’t really think these laws will do anything. And here’s John “Look At Me, I’m A Moderate, No Really” Hickenlooper saying that he didn’t mean it when he made a bunch of laws that turn ME into a felon for letting my range buddy load a magazine for me without us PAYING and WAITING for a background check EVERY TIME we pass it back and forth to each other. Does he really think that me telling a zealous, irritable, and half-clueless police officer “No, that’s not what they meant when they wrote it that way!” will get him to stop trying to arrest me? REALLY?
I was really looking forward to seeing the dumb looks on their faces when they were pitched out of the capital building come November 2014; it’s a little bit gratifying to see said looks so much sooner than that.
And for all the cluelessness around the national Republican Party, it is very good to see that it seems the locals have their heads on straight–rather than getting discouraged, they’re getting pissed off. And it’s time to start lighting some torches, as they say.
A big tip o’ the hat to Billll and Michael Bane, for the nice articles.
I passed a background check today! Aren’t you all so proud of me?

So I walked through Cabela’s, and wonder of wonder, they actually had a metal AR magazine.
Then I got home, and the other half of the Boulder Airlift arrived.
If, say, one were to want to start putting together an AR15, what tools would they need? Roll pin punches, armorer’s wrench, a magazine block… what else? Hypothetically, or course; we wouldn’t want any more of those evil things on the streets than there already are.
It’s a day of blegging, apparently.
Since it appears that I should be doing more gun-and-magazine-locking-upping in the near future, I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for easily lockable cases. I would prefer one that could hold more than one rifle at a time, and was a nice sturdy hard case. The plano-esque one that my ORC came with is ok, but firmly on the flimsy side. I was thinking that I should also get a separate lockable box for my OMGEEEEVILLL (but still ok enough to be grandfathered in) over-15-round magazines, just so when Officer Friendly stops you for your burnt out tail light he can’t start jumping to conclusions right away. Something that doesn’t scream “GUNS!!!!” would probably be good.
I was looking at this and this (not affiliated with Amazon or it’s affiliates, and any affiliations are purely in the mind of the FCC or FTC or Effin-whatever-the-hell-your-stupid-government-organizations-who-seem-to-be-obsessed-with-making-our-lives-more-difficult-are-called, merely linked for educational purposes.) A bit rich, maybe, but, as my Uncle says, “It’s only a dollar more to go first class.” And despite the recent stock market run, I have my doubts on the long-term worth of my money, so why not convert it into something useful? Something that might usefully help me stay out of jail for malum prohibitumy things? After all, you wouldn’t want any of your high-velocity rifles to escape, since they can go so fast, apparently.
Wow, that turned kinda ranty there at the end, didn’t it?
My friend the history major, who has been watching the state Senate all day, reports that the assault weapon liability and campus carry bills were killed, with the magazine limit and universal background check bills on shaky ground. John Morse reported as “angry, disorganized, and full of vitriol.”
Reportedly he said, and I quote, “we need to start the cleansing.”
I can’t really argue with that; I figure we’ll start in early 2014, and work until November til we get a goodly number of Democrats booted out on their behinds.
Hey, all you Colorado Democrats! Look what I just got in the mail!
And that’s only the first part of my order–.223 mags were backordered.
