Storage Solutions

Back when I lived in a small apartment I was always in search of good storage solutions.

One of these in the back of my closet would have fit the bill very nice.

Walking it in and out in this would also not freak out the elderly democrat former hippie that lives in 3C. Though guitar cases also worked well for transport. (but only if you have a concealed carry permit!)

Make sure you have a strong clothes rod. Not those thin white shelf things made of wire and hope.

You you actually make a home project out of this. Go to Salvation Army and get the right size garment bag. Sew in some Velcro and start adding gear.

Plus the right garment bag will already have lots of pockets and compartments.

--Just don't run it through the scanner at the airport. You might wake the TSA guy.

Skeet Shooting

Had a great time at Clark Brothers, skeet shooting yesterday with my friend Tony. The weather was beautiful

Right off we saw the 75 year old woman with the .500 mag. Damn, she is a good shot. She is the almost every Sunday.

I was shooting my Saiga and Benelli. The Saiga is big fun while skeet shooting! It feels like hot dogs and buns. A case of clays has 135 pidgons and boxes of 12ga come in 25s...

The was a guy in the next lane that brought his girlfriend shooting for the first time. He didn't know they needed eye protection. I loaned them spares. Had to keep an eye on him. I was sure he was going to muzzle me, but never did.

I should have brought the drum for the Saiga. A whole box of shells at once!!

Finished up with a box of 9mm through the Glock 17.

--It was a good day!

In our desire to have gov't become our benefactor and sustainer, we have allowed it to become our taskmaster and overlord.

Another Random Saturday!

Finished my novel. Went off to the editor and I started book 2!

I am off to take photos today of guns for future blog posts. Going to try it Oleg style!

What caliber do our troops use to fight ebola?

I am planning an epic Nerf Gun fight with my wife soon.

It is so not cool doxxing people on the Internet.

I am going to miss Saturday morning cartoons on Broadcast TV.

So far I have lost 31 pounds as part of my fitness project!

I will no longer allow people to tell me what I believe.

--My zombie gnome is beginning to rejoice the Halloween season!

Knives

At work today we were talking about knives.

It wasn't the usual conversation we have where everyone starts showing off their pocket knives, Swiss army knives, multi-tools, and/or flip knives. We were talking about fixed blade knives.

I was amazed that almost everyone had at least one K-Bar. Even the women! This is my favorite model.


You can get it on Amazon for a great price!

- I just ordered another on!

Ottawa Shootings

I really hate the media these days.

For what it does and for what it doesn't do.

They do exactly what these murders want. They want to be famous. I am not going to print the assholes name. I am not even going to link to any story that does.

I believe any media outlet that releases a mass murders name should be heavily fined. The same kind of gag order they have for minors. We would get far less mass murders if we didn't give them what they want.

They are also, once again, going after the gun, not the guy.

What they are also leaving out is that this asshole in Ottawa is yet another radical Muslim. Oh and he was stopped by an old guy with a gun.

--My sincere condolences go out to the victims.


iScope

I bought one of these iScope adapters for my iPhone 4s.

This thing works crazy good but I would like to add a few notes.

This rig is perfect for my Ruger 10/22 with a fixed 4x scope. Love it. What it is not so good with is my bolt action .308 rifles. The recoil is just to high on those rigs. But that is just fine really. While I can happily sit up and pull the trigger on my 10/22 with no worries, the .308 need to be shouldered and tucked tight.

My favorite use of it by far is on my spotting scope. I LOVE that! Looking up with just a glance. You can actually do a little digital zooming. You can record the actual shooting. You can even FaceTime the live action elsewhere.

I have a great 60x spotting scope. Combined with this it makes sighting in a scope so much easier.

--Don't be watching your neighbors! No one would ever do that!

Random Thought Saturday

I finished writing my Scifi Novel this week. It has been sent to the editor. The word count is 121,285 and is 544 pages in MS Word. That was some fun!

Started Book 2 already.

I didn't read Facebook for a few days and didn't miss it at all.

Turning the night vision off me security cameras can result is seriously creepy images sometimes. Especially when my son is outside with his laptop...

One of the nurses with Ebola is now in a hospital close to me. Stocking up on Spam and 9mm. I wish the .22LR drought was over!!

I want to buy another Glock 17. Two is one and all that.

Might have to go skeet shooting today. I just kind of have that itch.

Still going to the November first Blogshoot. You should as well. No I am not wearing a kilt to this one.

I would like to remind the Obama Administration that the Constitution was written to restrict the Government, NOT the people.

I love the new season of The Walking Dead. Guns are getting way better for the Zombie Apocalypse.

--Yes, I stole the random thought blog post idea from another blog. I like it.

Brad Pitt

Brad Pitt has always been around guns. I saw this article on FOX.

“There’s a rite of passage where I grew up of inheriting your ancestors’ weapons,” said 50-year-old Pitt, according to the Independent. “My brother got my dad’s. I got my grandfather’s shotgun when I was in kindergarten.”

This is the same in my family. I have my fathers shotgun and a revolver. One day my son will have them.

I usually hate it when actors weigh in regarding guns. It is usually with a large dose of hypocrisy. Not Brad Pitt though. I will have to go out and watch one of his movies tonight!

-- I am way behind on movie watching.
