I'm getting an Aero Precision lower in my first internet transfer. I could have saved a little on the lower if I hadn't been in a mall ninja mood at the last gun show, but I thought I had a Spikes lower found. Live and learn. Between taxes/ transfer fee it works out closely. And I paid a little more for some parts locally (charging handle and LPK) but I like my LGS and give them as much business as possible. Just need a rear BUIS, but the carry handle will swap over from the other just fine. It isn't like I can shoot them both at the same time, after all, I'm not a lead farmer.... The locals have sights, I'll just get one there when I get the lower.
And by interesting, I mean pathetic. I need to read more to really opine, but it sounds like he should have raised the black flag a little sooner.

Yeah, I'm spending the day lurking the GD on ARF. So sue me.....It's raining and cold and my wife has decided on a Star Wars marathon. I need something to do when Jar Jar Stinks is on screen....I could spend all day on wookiepedia or tvtropes, either of those will suck me in for days.

This was at 50 yards from an 18" 870 with an antique Tasco Pro-point2. With a nasty saddle mount, and Walmarts finest bulk 2 3/4" slugs. If you can get the target to hold still, it prints fairly decent groups from the bench, and minute of deer off hand.
I have a "why I blog"/"why I carry" post brewing somewhere, but I need to generalize a lot to avoid too much attention from the parties involved. As it is, two minutes (or less) of goog-fu would get you their names. One of those, 'don't want the eye of Mordor focused on you' things. This was nothing these people did to me, nor I to them.
O/T I don't know if it is my phone or browser, but I get double taps when commenting. At least WV catches them so I don't look like complete moron on some blogs.

They all look like they need sheered. Or is that sheparded?
So if the NATO summit and the illuminatti meeting,er G(x) meeting (that was moved) attract so much interest in the protest class, why not hold the meeting somewhere with clear lines of sight for miles and less flammable stuff(like Chicago). Like the camps they are supposedly setting up for the people they want to evacuate?
I do agree with some of the complaints against the G(x) groups. But the class of protestors they attract seem to be the burn it all types. Maybe that is what is hoped for, so crackdowns can be made on other protests.
And either at the above linked article or another recent article, the S Service has met with the protest group leaders. So.....did they just walk down the hall to the campaign office or stumble into a brothel at the same time....
Looks like a woman shot an 18 year old "'teen'" (double scare quotes)who was trying to break and enter (Occupy?) her home at the bright and sunshine filled hour of 2:20 PM. She even warned them before she fired that she had a gun. Guess someteen watches movies where people who have a gun don't shoot. I think the curricula at the punk-ass training schools needs to be updated to include that more people who have guns will use them, as their minions in the gun control movement are failing to protect them by disarmament.

Like the Brady bunch or similar. That way I could write fake whiney letters to the editor about how the Pro murder (self defense is not murder EMFDYSI) anti self help crowd doesn't really represent me even though I am a member.
H/T to Weerd.
*Against an established civil right (see Heller, etc)=hate group. Also hypocrites, since so many speaking out against guns and bearing them have carry permits themselves. Should not their rainbows and light be good enough for their own defense too?

I see traffic backed up for 3 to 4 miles on 2 different highways. Supposedly someone hit a deer then several people hit that person. Hopefully they had stayed in the car....
Friday, 35 north out of Ankeny was stopped dead. We saw the head of the stoppage while going south- no accident there, just two morons playing in traffic. Wacky stuff.

Is this some kind of tongue in cheek joke? The only guy that both manages to out nanny both Obama and Bush, with an undisguised disdain for both term limits and anything approaching freedom for the masses? Friedman opines:
if only to participate in the presidential debates and give our two-party system the shock it needs.
What imaginary third party does Bloomberg lead? The People way too rich to be Democrats (lol), but so invested in controlling people down the the very last micron of their lives that they can't be Republicans either Party. Bet that party is pissed ABC has the Supernanny name copyrighted- they could run with it. I suppose the shake up in the debates would be how far each Bloomberg and Obama would go to eradicating what little is left of freedom in this country, and manage to make Romney look like a Libertarian by comparison. Then again, the Stupid Party loves to not only move to the center, but jump over the left's positions to try to attack them from the other flank.
I guess he would save the country in one way- his policies could finally unite the country against someone, because he wouldn't be from either party. I'll leave the rest to imagination.

Where the hell have they been? Under a rock the past decade? Zombie shooting has been getting to be a cliche for the past two years. (or more) I'm not saying I don't do it. Of course, cool people don't like to do whatever everyone else is doing. If it gets more people the range, go for it.
Is it bad that I was walking through the Easter leftover aisle the other day thinking cheap stuffed bunnies would be fun to plink? Pull the stuffing out, red dye filled packs of some sort inserted.....yep, I'm a little off sometimes.....

So if poor little piss baby Wallace got some "big" stories spiked, I could care less. Again, my contempt for the MSM started early in my life.

Here at LWRC forums. Short version: Federal will be making 6.8 ammo. Hell yeah! More ammo makers, more choices, better prices? Spent bullets look good. Also there- prototype P-mags that
Short Response: DO WANT!
This may change my plans for rifle number 3.5
*Added: Dang, it will take a new lower. Looks like another lower will be on the menu too. Oh, dang, another 4473 to fill out. It does suck, in that it takes away from the ease of using existing parts.

FCC disclosure: My wife sent me the hat, so sod off.
Hahahahahahahahah. I just got a bullet proof vest ad through adsense. (see linked post) Good thing, 'cause the Chicago thing is definite.
This restaurant (the original in the Drake neighborhood, anyway) was featured on an episode of Man vs Food, for the Adam Emmenecker Challenge. See the sammich below The Jethro, and eat the thing including fries in 15 minutes. Adam Richman failed.
The Jethro didn't kick my ass, but I was feeling it walking around after eating it.
So, I've eaten at Centro, Splash Seafood, and Jethro's. Hmmm, am I leaving out any restaurants owned by the same guy........;) cough, Zombie Burger,cough
OMG they changed it. It sucked.
Just kidding. Good movie. Had a few 'I see what you did there' moments, the game seemed shorter than it could have been. Peeta should have been taller. I need to reread the book for a couple of sections, just to see if Cato's lines rang the way they did in the movie vs the book. The actor playing Seneca Crane kept bugging me, realized he was in the first Ghost Rider movie.
The previews should have said "Sponsored by Marvel"

My M&P40c had a FTEx with the 10+1 loadout I'd been carrying the past 2 weeks. First round didn't extract, slide grabbed another round. Fixed it and all 10 left shot fine, plus 3 more full mags of range ammo. Funny, I was there to shoot a used old G22 3rd gen I had picked up (Shocked face! Different brand of Kool-aid! And not the hive approved 9mm!) in a trade with a guy I work with (calm down dear). It shot fine, I didn't. Not shooting pistols for 2 months makes me shoot like crap.
