North Dakota Becomes First State to Approve Armed Drones for Police

We called it here long ago.

The image shown in the article is not an armed drone. It's a cute little surveillance drone. Short range and mostly harmless to anything but privacy.

The armed drones are big. Their guns are big. They are fast and have a long range. They can stay aloft for hours.

It will not be long before they are 100% pilot free. Even remote.

--What could go wrong...

Riots? What Riots?

Have you noticed how the country has reacted to these race on race murders?

Have you seen all the rioting white people?

Me neither.

So this racist asswipe was a gay, democrat and an Obama voter. He doesn't fit the narrative. But you know what? None of that matters.

We don't have a gun problem.
We have a crazy person problem.
We have a lack of respect for human life problem.
We have a political agenda problem.
We have a bread and circuses problem.
We have an education problem.

--Remember, gun control is always racist, classist and more about control than guns.


There was another double murder that is going to fuel gun control advocates.

Two people being murdered with a gun is just another Saturday in DC. But these murders will get a lot of coverage because it was members of the media shot live on TV.

The media and even the President are focusing on the gun once again, and not the man. The motivation of the killer is being ignored in favor of blaming the tools. It appears he acquired the firearm legally. Background check and all. The gun was not fancy in anyway. Not a dreaded "assault rifle". Where can the gun grabbers go with it beyond dancing in the blood of the victims. They can't even call it a mass shooting.

My heart goes out to their families and friends.

-What made the man? Ask that question.

New Shooter Sunday

This weekend I took my dear friend Shea to the range for her first time!

I met her at my science fiction writers group and became fast friends. We went to Elite Shooting Sports in Manassas VA.

ESS has excellent facilities for shooters in wheel chairs so when Shea rolled in with her fancy motorized machine they were very welcoming. We had her registered, range card obtained, and the safety briefing done in no time.

I gave her the Four Rules speech in addition to the safety video. We bought targets, put on our eyes and ears and were off!

I brought a couple rifles and a couple handguns. She liked my Savage Mark II bolt action .22LR the best.

--It was big fun! Love you, Shea!!

US Soldiers on vacation stop a radical Muslim from mass murdering people.

Yet another asshole decided that he was going to kill a lot of people on a high speed train. He knew it was a gun free zone, so when he emerged from the bathroom and started shooting he didn't expect resistance. Boy was her wrong.

--Semper Fi.

Handicapped Shooters

This weekend I am taking yet another first time shooter to the range.

The difference is this friend is wheelchair bound. She is very excited about the adventure.

I will be taking her to Elite Shooting Sports range in Manassas VA. Their facility is specially designed to serve shooters in wheelchairs. Smooth rolling and extra-wide special lanes for shooters that need it.

I will give a range report next week!

--Should be fun!

Random Thursday

Murder rate is up 30% in Washington DC. Lots of people killed with firearms. Even though their possession is still illegal there. BTW, murder is also illegal there.

I am completely covered in cat hair and drool. Bailey is very needy today, even though I have already fed him.

More race riots in St. Louis. Some asshole pointed a gun at cops and they shot him. So of course riots and tear gas.

Regal movies theaters are now starting to search bags and backpacks. I expect that to last a few weeks before it fades away.

I saw Charles Barkley on TV while channel surfing. I like this guy.

--Need coffee now. Need it bad.

Interesting Graphic

I find this interesting. I believe that in the future there will be much more role differentiation in the armed forces. Everything from lightly equipped to advanced snipers to heavily armored ground forces. I also expect advanced in firearms.

--Don't forget the new drone soldiers.

Randon Busy Days

Two weeks from today is the deadline for my next novel. All my spare time will focused there after work. It is coming out really excellent.

I found a huge supply of subsonic .300 Blackout this weekend. The problem is it was all over $1 a round. Even in quantity it's still high. I can find it now. I'll take it.

It's going to be super hot outside today. But now the "experts" on TV are saying surface temps have nothing to do with climate change and temps have not actually changed at all for the last 18 years. Plus, it's too complicated for the average person to understand. Bite me.

I have decided my next buy is going to be another Glock 17. Two is one and all. Not exciting, not pretty, but high utility.

I am going to help a friend, that does not have a lot of spare cash, put a basic AR-15 together. I have a big pile of items I have swapped out for upgrades. Stocks, grips, foregrips, sights, mags, charging handles and other random parts will give him a leg up.

--Happy Monday. Drink Coffee!

Random Friday!

Sharia law Arabic: شريعة) is the body of Islamic law. The term means "way" or "path"; it is the legal framework within which the public and some private aspects of life are regulated for those living in a legal system based on Islam. The stated goal is to have the entire world subject to Sharia law.

It has NO place in my government.

Just as we are not a Muslim nation, we are not a Christian nation. We may be a Nation with a lot of Christians but separation of Church and State ensures Sharia Law is stopped.

I got an awesome new laptop yesterday. It was my first, tax deductible, purchase with my royalties!

The county fair is open. Can you say demolition derby!

PC Police have no sense of humor. For future reference, If you ask me about a babysitter and I recommend Benadryl and duct tape, it's a joke.

I am buying more tools for my gun room. Who knew that a rawhide hammer was so awesome?

--Happy Friday!

Weekly Comic Wednesday

--I don't think she will make it through the primaries before she pulls out for "health" reasons.

I found this over at with other good info.

Last Day

Tonight is my last night camping. Vacation will be over on Saturday. Regular programming for this blog will begin again on Sunday.

There will be talk about guns, famous quotes, weekly cartoons on Wednesdays, and even a few little notes about new books being published.

See you on Sunday!

Building an AR15

Sitting around the fire the last few days we were discussing our various ARs. 

This convinced one of our members to build an AR 15 from scratch. It turns out he will have a huge Headstart because everyone of us that already have A.R. 15's also have giant boxes full of spare parts.

Everyone has extra stocks, pistol grips and foregrips. Even spare flip up sights and red dot sights.

Might be the cheapest AR build ever. 

I built this AR that way. I spent more on the car than the rest of the rifle. 

Wow. It's Sunday.

The first week of my vacation is now over. One week to go. 

Help me slow this train down!!

It's going too fast!!
