I think it’s going to take more than one can of WD40 to get this guy up and running again.

Quote of the “Scout Rifle”

“[...]I had a conversation in which I joked that the ideal real-world general purpose rifle was a Glock 19 – that is, after all, all the modern man is ever likely to need to survive in the concrete jungles of the American coastal megalopoleis, and heartland waystation-towns alike. The irony of the Scout Rifle is that it’s a late 20th century weapon designed for the 19th; a sort of modernist homage to the romance the post-war generations have had with Brand’s Old West, Kipling’s India, and Conrad’s Africa.”

–Nathaniel F, from The Firearm Blog

I can’t find any fault in that line of explanation, but that doesn’t stop me from being a romantic about the desire for a scout rifle anyway!

I didn’t buy any

Cabela’s had one tiny box of .22 Short blanks, and two small boxes of .22 Long shot shells.  Still more rimfire than I’ve seen in a year.

Because Stickers are Better than Bookmarks

I upgraded my Reading Rainbow kickstarter to 10 bucks from 5, so I could get some stickers. To upgrade my Camouflage, of course.

For fucks sake

Bloomberg apparently doesn’t even know how to read a nap. COLORADO SPRINGS doesn’t have ROADS according to him.  The are not enough face palm pictures to show how hard I am face palming right now.

T Barker Shotgun

Something we found at grandpa’s, probably from his dad.  According to the internet, they were made from 1880-1910. This one has been shot to hell and halfway back; doesn’t lock up tight at all and, well, notice the homemade hammer–great grandad was a Kansas blacksmith and I’m sure he made it himself.

Camaro in background for scale.

Sorry? SORRY?

Hickenlooper just proved he is either too stupid or too evil to lead. In case there was any doubt.

Sorry? Fuck you with a rusty fork.

Color Me Intrigued

A quick detach dust cover? May have to pick one of those up. Wish it came in crazy colors, though (tactical brown isn’t a crazy color, sorry).

Broke In

For a floppy holster, this Nemesis had been broken in so well it actually has pretty good retention.

You know you’re a gun nut when…

…you read this:

And your first thought is “only seven?”

Don’t get me wrong, this whole case is tragic, but it definitely illustrates the difference in perspective from the breathless press and the average American.
