Whew - Spring is Here!

Oh Mother Nature... you're a bit early.

They want to bloom so badly they can't stand it!
Just moments later. Boom!

Pushing 70 degrees in Tennessee today. Hard to believe, right? (It's February 22!)

I'm going a little stir crazy. Might hit the porch and grab a cigar. I'd like to go shoot at some point.

I'm thinking it might be time to go buy some land.

It's so nice out today and I've got nowhere to go shoot --- at least nowhere on private land. I'm not a big fan of the outdoor range here on my side of town. Lots of craziness, crowds, and a ton of noise. Makes it tough to get a nice relaxing afternoon of range therapy in. Don't get  me wrong, I enjoy the camaraderie and all, I just would prefer to have the choice for a tranquil afternoon of long-range shooting at times.

Have a great weekend.

Range Report

Had a great time this morning at the range for a quick trip.

Shot some of the new Wolf Gold 223. It's brass, decent stuff performed as well as I'd hoped.

Decent crowd at the range considering it's February. I wonder if it's related to ammo prices. Things are definitely a little bit better but I don't shoot much .22lr so I'm oblivious to their strife. Either way, it was good to see the crowd even if I'm not sure why it was there. I did get a kick out of one guy who was in the pistol area shooting with a young kid.

The kid kept saying "gun ammo" over and over again. I kind of laughed, seems like that's a little redundant. "Gun ammo" --- as opposed to what other kind of ammo?

Either way, thanks to OB (you know who you are) for the gift card that helped me pick up the AR-15 gun ammo from

I guess I'm older than I thought.

Cool Idea - Maybe

Kind of a cool idea, I'll be curious to hear who gets some of this.

So, I've heard about flash sales in the past but never in the gun-world. 

Last week I got an email from Eric at who said they were having what is basically an ammo flash sale. It's like 150 rounds of .308 in an ammocan for $57. It sounds like these are rounds that came from damaged boxes that they couldn't sell so they'll be loose-packed in the ammocan when you get them.

If you're interested, that's a pretty good deal per round. It's mixed brass, so probably not ideal if you're looking for match quality but if you've got an AR-10, sounds like it'd be a good to blow through a few magazines for relatively cheap.

Basically, I had to swear to secrecy and promise not to post too much of a heads up. It seems they've had a ton of demand for sales like this in the past.

The ammo will be available at 11 a.m. central time (that's noon eastern time) and he says you can't miss the 308 deal on this page.

If you get some, let me know how it shoots. I haven't shopped at yet and I'm not sure how he got my name but I do know they did a loose-packed sale around Black Friday and it sold pretty fast and even caused website issues because so many people wanted it.

Bill Clinton Had an Affair? Oh Noes!!!!

Sorry, it's been a while.

This got me worked up today so I had to update.

From the "I don't believe what I'm hearing department"...

Bill Clinton is alleged to have had an affair with Elizabeth Hurley while he was in office.

You wanna know how I know it's true? Tom Sizemore said so. That's how I know it to be fact.

Does this look like a man who would make up something like this?

Tom Sizemore doesn't lie... at least not often.

Meanwhile, the verdict is out on whether I blame him or not.

I mean, honestly... can you blame him?

But, can you believe the President of the United States had an affair?


Oh wait.

Clinton with Lewinsky.

Carry on. This is old news.

Merry Christmas to Me!

Good evening, hope you had a great Christmas!

I had a good one and have been keeping really busy.

The highlight, aside from my hanging out with the family and getting a little bit of time away from the office had to be the time I've spent at the range with my new tool: a Walther PPS chambered in 9mm.

It's been too cold for outside (I'm kind of a wimp) but I've had a great time shooting it at the indoor range.

So far, so good with the pistol. It's been feeding reliably and I feel like I'm about as accurate with it as I was with my full-size Taurus, so that's a good thing. It's generally pretty hard to keep a pocket pistol about as accurate as a full-size but 9mm tends to be a little easier on shooters than larger calibers.

Oh, we'll see what Valentine's Day brings. Maybe I'll get the .40 S&W version of the Walther as well?

What'd you do for Christmas? Anything fun?

Have any resolutions I need to know about for 2014? :)

Should Holidays Be Stressful?

I might be buying into the whole commercialism on the holidays way too much.

I'm already stressing over the big one at the end of the month but I don't know how to avoid it.

Do you stress out like the rest of seem to? If not, how do you avoid it? Shouldn't family time be relaxing?

Bear With Me...

I don't get it.

Yesterday's headlines all warned of an active shooter on Capitol Hill.

As in, yes, another scary gun had come to the Gun Free Zone to impose its will on all of us.

CNN's headline claimed "shots fired" with no mention that the only people who had guns were the police. "Chaos" reigned in D.C., which is pretty clearly hyperbole.

More accurately put, "An unarmed woman with a history of mental illness drove her single  vehicle through a barricade. Then the government ended her life."

The end.
