In Case of Zombies

Zombies were more popular than ever at the NRA convention this year.

There was lots of Zombie themed targets, guns, knives and other items.

I think the best example was this Bug Out Vehicle! The roof mounted mini gun and two door mounted guns are perfect for the Zombie apocalypse or heavy morning traffic on your commute!

I can't imagine how much this thing cost to put together.

I still prefer a Brinks Armored Truck for my Zombie Apoc needs. Lots more storage for food, water ammo and fuel.

--Your mileage may vary...

I'm Back

I just got back from the NRA 2014 Convention.

It was a great trip. Saw a lot of old friends and met a lot of new friends.

Normal posting will resume tomorrow.

--Now I need coffee...

2014 NRA Annual Meeting

I am heading out today for the NRA Annual Meeting and show.

They expect over 70,000 people to attend.

I have not been there since Pittsburgh. I have my most comfy shoes ready.

This will also be my first big roadtrip since my spine surgery last winter.

I am going to try to post from the Meeting!

--Who's going? Email me at!

This guy lays it out.

It Only Took This Army Vet 3 Minutes To Destroy Obama's Gun Control Safe Act:

--You want to go in first?

Range trip

I made a quick range trip. In an unusual series of events I only took one firearm to shoot.

I took my Suppressed Roni/Glock 21 SBR.I have a new EOTech that I needed to sight in. It was fun.

I walked in the sight at 25 yards and then at 50 yards. I forgot to bring my spotting scope or binocs. My eyes are not what they use to be but if you drop a whole mag you can see where they go.

I can't believe how much .45ACP drop.

Fun stuff.

The only problem was that when the gun heats up the suppressor begins to work loose.

Tightening the can when it's HOT is not much fun!

--I love this gun!

Quotes of the Week

There's no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren't enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws.”
― Ayn Rand

The smallest minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities.
--Ayn Rand

Benelli Shorty

Yet another short shotgun I am lusting after. This one is from Benelli.

--I wonder if they make holsters for it.

Serbu Super Shorty 12 Gauge

As you know. I am a sucker for a short shotgun. This vid also explains why these are defined as an AOW ($5) and not an SBS ($200). If you really like recoil you might need one.

--Only 3 round capacity and a bit expensive for a novelty gun.

VA Gun Trader

I have been enjoying the hell out of VA Gun Trader this week.

If you have never checked it out, and live in VA, You really should.

To do it right you really need to go there daily and keep an eye out. It also gives you a realistic sense on the value of a firearm.

--The discussions can also be a hoot.

Teddy Roosevelt

I was at the Smithsonian National Art Museum today and was suprised to see a rifle on display in the Portrait Gallery.

I should have known. I look to the left and there is the Portrait of President Roosevelt.

This was Teddy's Springfield. 

This was one of three firearms he purchased for his hunting trip to British East Africa.

--It was a beautiful day.

Robot Sentries

A friend sent me a pic via email.

I would love to build a remote controlled sentry. Here are the features of this that I like:
  • Foundation is an AR15 pistol flt top
  • 300 round, dual drum beta mag
  • Suppressor
  • EOTech sight
  • Remote camera through the EOTech
  • Powerful LED light
The parts I would have to make:
  • Fire control
  • Targeting control
While researching the legal traps I could even use an Airsoft AR as the foundation.

--I wonder if EOTechs have an always on mode?

Another DYI Gun Safe

Here is another hidden gun safe that would be good for a dusty corner of your garage.

This not only locks, it has really good internal volume.

It could even be plugged in so it could have interior lights, dehumidifier and maybe even some security systems.

I would also remove all the compressor and motor gear and install a drawer in the bottom.

--Good camouflage! 

Gun Free Zone

Last night the Church I have attended voted to become a Gun Free Zone.

Also known as a, Miller Free Zone.

I have been a member there for over 20 years. Intolerance and political bigotry has become acceptable behavior there in recent years.

I had made my views clear to the congregation, minister and the board of directors. It's easy to leave with my children grown and my wife of the same exact opinion as me.

In an ironic turn of events, I suddenly have thousands of dollar freed up in my budget that will now go to the 2nd Amendment Foundation and a Lifetime Membership to the NRA.

--More time for coffee and bacon on Sundays...

DIY: Gun Safe

A Friend sent me this image of a Do It Yourself locking gun safe.

I have a tall, five drawer filing cabinet that I could see being refit like this.

As I was looking at mine I might have seen a design flaw. If you make these mods and fill it up with long guns, then slide open the drawer, it could tip.

The advantage of the file cabinet normally is that you open only one drawer at a time.

To make this work you would really need to bolt the whole thing to the floor or the wall behind.

I can't say that this would even be good hidden storage. Burglars would still open it. This lock would slow them down but not stop them.

--This would be useful for keeping your kids out.

Bug Out Vehicle

Are you ready for the pending Zombie Apocalypse?  This guy is! Seen in WIRED!

--If only I had enough cash.

Want: KRISS Vector

I have had this gun on my want list for a long time. Sounds like they have worked most of the bugs out!

--I like this guys range too!

Quotes of the Week

A little government and a little luck are necessary in life; but only a fool trusts either of them.

Gun Porn: Short Shotgun

I know they are not very useful, but I still love me some short shotguns. One of the basic problems with a short shotgun is their ammo capacity. I saw this puppy on and thought it would be awesome with a pistol grip!

Mag fed is awesome. I would pistol grip this and add a single point sling and have a pile of fun!

--I have that shoulder stock on another shotgun already!

Shotgun Myths and Realities

 --I love my shotguns!

Gun Content on Pinterest

I saw these images about the Four Rules on and it's always good to remind people of them. So happy Friday and keep your bugger hook off the bag switch.

--Have a great weekend!

Another Fort Hood Shooting

Yet another Fort Hood incident.

Details are still thin but here are a few facts tht we do know:
  • Fort Hood is STILL a Gun Free Zone
  • Asshole killed himself
  • He killed himself when people with guns shot back
You will get no sympathy from me for the shooter. That is what they want. No. Not going to happen.

I wish the media would not even say his name. They want to be famous. Screw that.

--I hope his gun is traced to Leland Yee. Maybe someone would cover that story.

Leland Yee and Media Coverage

The Leland Yee scandal has revealed more than just the corruption and hypocrisy of Leland Yee.

It has revealed, once again, the depth of the hypocrisy and bias of MANY media outlets.

A politician caught red handed taking bribes and arms trafficking and basically silence from the media?

What really pisses me off is that it is working. The basic Benghazi like blackout on the facts are keeping it quiet. (crickets)

I overheard a conversation at work that got the rage up. Not only did a large knot of people (Obama-voters) not hear about it, when it was mentioned Leland Yee was identified as a Tea Party member. Not a Democrat, gun-control advocate.

That is when I had to butt in. I rarely talk politics at work. So I laid out some facts and walked away.

-I hate political bigots.  

Next Project

I am building another AR-15 for my next project. This one will be made to be light and comfortable. I have been talking about it for a while.

I am thinking the upper will be configured like this:

It will have a polymer fore-grip and iron sights only with a single point sling. I might consider a flat-top with advance, but lightweight sights. Nothing with heavy batteries though. Crisp and clean and no caffeine...

--Well maybe a little caffeine.
