Signs

April 7th, 2013 | 5 Comments | Posted in It's all about me, Pass the ammo

So, I went shooting the other day with my dad. The original plan was to go with my brother too but since he is studying for his Lt. promotion board we ended up deciding to meet him at the range and he would just catch up.

I brought the 1911 and the LCP figuring that since the LCP is new and I haven’t shot it that much I should get some more time with it and since dad reloads all his brass shooting the 1911 is relatively cheep especially when you are using wad cutters instead of FMJ or JHP.

Things started off just fine. Had a new set of grips that I made out if Teak for the .45, two new 8 round magazines (don’t want to make the liberals scared of my excessive number of rounds), and a new magwell I was trying out. All was golden and glorious right up to the tenth round.

That’s when it happened.

Pulled the trigger and instead of BANG there was ‘click’.

Now when it happened I will admit I first thought misfire so I waited a moment to make sure it wasn’t a slow burn, dropped the mag and ejected the round. What came out was a very dirty looking casing. The outside was black but otherwise it looked normal. I assumed (wrongly) that the ejector hadn’t grabbed it and tossed it out which, if I had been thinking, I would have realized if that was the case I would have been dealing with a mis-feed and the slide would have tried to grab a new round.

I showed it to dad and he said something about the round not being crimped enough and needing to have a look at his reloading equipment when we got home and I went back to my lane not thinking anything more about it.

It was when I put the magazine back in that I realized all was not right with the world. The round wouldn’t chamber.

I STILL wasn’t thinking squib, and I should have since I have read about them plenty of times, instead I was thing ‘magazine not seated’ ‘bad magazine’ and even ‘bad round’ or ‘dirty feed ramp’.

After trying a different magazine and checking the feed ramp I grabbed my dad who immediately called an end to range day and we headed home to see what was going wrong. Once we had it stripped there it was, jammed just far enough in the barrel so it couldn’t be seen but enough that another round would not load.

According to our gunsmith, he thinks the round didn’t get any powder and was all primer.  Dad is going to have his reloading equipment checked by the manufacturer and the round was extracted from the barrel with no damage.

squib

Moral here, I guess, is never take anything for granted and pay attention to your ammo and your weapon.  I should have realized all was not right when the ‘click’ happened.  My initial thought of the cartridge not be ejected from the last shot couldn’t be right because the pistol wouldn’t have been cocked.

I wasn’t expecting a squib and when it happened I didn’t follow the signs that were right in front of me.  That’s when bad things happen – pay attention to the signs.

So, I Was Thinking

Which can be very dangerous.

I saw on Jennifer’s site that she was dealing with a Twitter Troll so I decided to go a poke it with a stick.  Yeah, I do that when I am feeling ornery.

Anyway, one of the responses that was sent my way was this

douche-1

Yep.  Guns. Are. Bad. M’kay.

Couple of things get me here.  One, why does El Douche care about what happens in a country that is not his own? I’ll never figure that out I don’t think.

But the second part is this.  I was watching Castle (Beckett is smokin’ – just saying) and I started thinking of all the ways I could remember people being killed on that show.  Here’s the list I came up with:

  • Guns (yep, we know)
  • Samurai Sword
  • Pillows
  • Spiky Sculpture
  • Rope
  • Swimming Pool
  • Chorine
  • Motor Oil
  • Cyanide
  • Balsamic Vinegar
  • Decompression Chamber
  • Frying pans
  • Wooden Stake
  • Fists
  • Steak Knife
  • Pipe Bomb
  • Liquid Nitrogen
  • Ice Pick
  • Stone Gargoyles
  • Picket Fences

These are just the ones I can think of to!  So, I guess if we are going to ban guns ’cause they’re bad, m’kay, then we should ban all these things too because if they have been used to kill someone then they must be bad too, m’kay.

Just a thought.  What do you need a pillow that fluffy for anyway!  Do it for the children.

 

Bingo!

Nailed it

First though, we have to make certain only responsible people can get alcohol. I’m sure you agree about that much, right?

So obviously we have the ID checks at point of sale, but too many kids are buying it second hand. Clearly, we have to make the IDs harder to get. (Shut up, this is for the common good).

All you need to do is take a class… yes, it’s a couple hundred dollars. Do your part and cover your own damn externalities, will you?

We’ll use that to cover the ER bills for all the drunk driving accidents damage you psychopaths are doing.

Yes it is you, now shut up.

Go RTWT.

Super Secret Jarhead

So when Marine John Boston wrote an open letter to Feinstein stating that any bill that would require him to register and/or turn in the guns he owns to the government would be illegal and he would refuse, he got a lot of support and a lot of heads on the left started exploding.

I will not register my weapons should this bill be passed, as I do not believe it is the government’s right to know what I own. Nor do I think it prudent to tell you what I own so that it may be taken from me by a group of people who enjoy armed protection yet decry me having the same a crime. You ma’am have overstepped a line that is not your domain. I am a Marine Corps Veteran of 8 years, and I will not have some woman who proclaims the evil of an inanimate object, yet carries one, tell me I may not have one.

Of course, those of us who own guns – and not the Fudds who say “I only have mine for duck hunting” – agreed with Cpl. Boston.  His argument was reasoned, based on fact, and cut to the heart of the matter “I will not have some woman who proclaims the evil of an inanimate object, yet carries one, tell me I may not have one”

The left saw that letter as open rebellion against the mandate they have created in their mind that people want more and more government control over their lives.  How DARE those plebeians tell us no, DON’T THEY KNOW WHO WE ARE!

Well now CNN has a response letter from a ‘Marine’.  I  put it in quotes because this particular person doesn’t have the conviction to sign their real name to the letter, so like most arguments from the left we are just supposed to take their word for it that what they say is true.  Personally, after reading it I call bullshit on the whole thing.

While I did not experience combat, I served in Afghanistan as a Marine, exiting the service as a Sergeant in 2008 to enter college. My experiences in the Marine Corps of course led me to train with semi and fully automatic weapons, and yet, I have no desire to own these weapons now that I am out of the service. I can’t see why any civilian needs semi-automatic, high-capacity weapons designed to kill as many people as quickly as possible, and I support a ban of future sales in addition to a retroactive ban that would force Joshua Boston to relinquish his weapons.

So this ‘Marine’ is quite fine with throwing out the 2nd, 4th and 5th Amendments to the Constitution. I also love how this anonymous vet states that they were a Sergeant.  Interesting that the person, who is anonymous, was a higher rank than Boston.

I also like this part “I can’t see why any civilian needs semi-automatic, high-capacity weapons designed to kill as many people as quickly as possible” – wow, almost like they got that straight from the Brady Bunch, amazing coincidence.

Boston’s attitude towards authority is frankly disgusting and his open letter is wrong in both its assumptions about why the gun-control debate has become heated, and the reasons why we should care about his opinions at all. It implies that because he served in Iraq and Afghanistan as a Marine, that he can choose which laws to obey while at home. This is of course, incorrect, and gives other veterans a bad name. Regardless of his personal beliefs about gun-control, Boston should obey the law, or stop using the title of Marine veteran so proudly.

This person obviously forgot their oath to ” SUPPORT and DEFEND the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God.”

Not the parts you like, not the President, the CONSTITUTION.  Which mean that any law passed, or any order given that goes against the Constitution you have an obligation under your oath to NOT OBEY.  The UCMJ clearly spells out in article 90-92 that a military member is required to follow LAWFUL orders.  Any order that goes against the Constitution – such as a gun confiscation – is unlawful and should not be followed.

But I am sure that ‘usmcdiorio’ knows nothing about that, because first he would have had to take the oath and unless he is willing to produce a DD214 and prove his track record I will call this just one more false flag by the left, but I’m used to those.

**UPDATE**

Had to add this choice comment from TAH

Fortunately Mr. Anonymous Marine’s paranoid ranting does not represent the views of Marines nor the Marine Corps in it’s entirety. If anything it represents the views of a certain group of people that just don’t seem to get it, and probably never will. That being said, anonymous “Marine”, get bent you fucking douche rocket.

Oh, and one part that I missed

Another attempt at moral equivalence that fails under the first light. The title is Marine, not former Marine or ex-Marine. Marines would say, I did a combat deployment in Afghanistan, but did not see actual combat. Marines will say the unit to which attached, it is bona fides. Lastly, Marine veteran? That is also not a title, Marine is the only title earned. ‘Marine veteran is a bumper sticker’. And amazingly, the king of all missed terms, not one Semper Fidelis. Especially when trying to convince Cpl Boston (no reference to rank, either) that he would be a criminal. No remember the words Semper Fidelis is “Always Faithful”. Just a form letter with insert branch of service here. I really like the term tone-deaf, hmmm who else is tone deaf? Everybody who believes in the second amendment and the NRA earned that particular moniker. Nice FAIL anonymous.

Remember, Guns Are No Defense

According to the anti’s that is.  Aren’t they the ones who like to say that it will just be taken away and used against you?  Someone forgot to tell this 12 year old girl.

The quote of the day

“When I had the gun, I didn’t think I was actually going to have to shoot somebody,” the 6th grader recalled. “I think it’s going to change me a whole lot, knowing that I can hold my head up high and nothing can hurt me anymore.”

Wow, a gun allowed her to protect herself against a full grown man.  Whoda thunk it.

Not the anti’s, that’s for sure.

Why We Have Guns

September 3rd, 2012 | No Comments | Posted in ...Let God sort them out, Pass the ammo

Because if you are outnumbered and out-muscled, a gun can provide the edge to tip the odds in your favor as proven here when a 92 year old man defended himself against three 20-some year old home invaders.

Police said a man broke into the basement and entered the first floor of a Boone County home in the 15000 block of Violet Road in Verona just after 2 a.m.

The homeowner, Earl Jones, 92, was awakened by a noise in his basement and grabbed his .22 caliber rifle.  When the intruder came through the door from the basement, Jones fired a shot, police said.

He immediately called his neighbor, who then called 911.

Final score:  Home Owner – 1, Dirtbags – 0

Yep, one is no longer wasting valuable oxygen and the other two are in jail.

 

So remember, when the anti’s say crap like we should be physically tested every year and vision tested what  they really mean is that they want people like Mr. Jones here to be a victim.
