Also found at the fun store

Ammo storage boxes! A little small, but effective. Nice when your LGS will order hens teeth for you, instead of playing Midway's 2 item limit game. 

Blue gun

Halloween leftovers.

WTF did I do!

I think I mounted a lightsaber on my pistol!

The switch was on when I put the batteries in. I was blinded. A 630 lumen TLR-1 HL will do that to you.

All sorts of handy

Picked up a primer swager tool. RCBS 9481. Very nice, even on those nasty LC crimps. I reloaded 20 cases- Winchester, Winchester 5.56 and Tula brass*. Also tried a few LC marked cases I had already used a cutting type swaging tool to trim. Primers slid in consistently after using the new swager. I feel the need to shoot up some of my nemesis- PSD marked brass from PMC. Too bad I got pissed and chucked most of the brass last time.

 A deal for the $40 Midway wants, and a steal for $32 locally.

*I swaged about 150 cases, only reloaded some samples. Compared to using the cutting type tools, it took less time and effort, although the cup on the base could be taller on my Lock 'n Load Hornady press. Maybe I can find a washer to space it up slightly.

Good old days

Back when civil servants had a conscience.Or expected jail time for nasty crap like this.
From the Nixon Library.

Our latest mountain lion

Is just here touring the bridges of Madison County. The DNR has to admit this one, as a game cam caught him. How long will the DNR continue the prior restraint policy of not letting bow hunters carry a pistol?

Looks like this will be a baseball blog for a bit

Cardinals are going to the World Series. :)

After Obama's Victory Lap Presser

Did he get in the limo and do a burnout in front of the RNC's offices in DC?

Well, that was stupid

As much fun as that shutdown was, the stupid party lived down to their name. Pathetic.

Bet the Dems are pissed

The Million Veteran March members are removing the Barrycades from the monuments and delivering them to the place from whence they came- the White House. If the DNC wasn't broke, I would bet their rent-a-mobs would have taken them to Capitol Hill. Of course, veterans know who the Commander in Chief is.

System upgrade

EBT broken? Or just a trial to see what happens?

Judging by comments on Facebook, people are trying to use them at places that piss me off that they accept them at all. Movie theaters take EBT? Fuck you, freeloaders.

More shoddy work before 8 am

Than some people do all day...

Made a plate holder from steel and wood rather than wood and a prayer.

Mobile Victim Disarmament Zones

Much hay has been made about the "oblivious" passengers in San Francisco when the man was executed on the welfare tube. Maybe if the criminals weren't the only ones packing heat....

Just think, Chicago requires victims to be disarmed on the trains. If they ever get around to issuing any permits.

So, if Obama claims a random number of Republicans >1 are ready to give him his way, that means his party is starting to break.

Also, something George Bush did better than Obama. Not that rampant free shit is anything to brag about, and was one of many things I thought could not stand about Bush*, but Hah-Hah.

*I always disliked the growth of .gov under Bush, but Obama makes him look like a piker.

Oh, you are hurting my morale...

The Washington Times notes the ATF wants to block publication of John Dodson's Fast and Furious book. Morale in the Phoenix office might be hurt. Just where in the blue hell did they find agents with feelings, anyway? Are these the guys that weren't hardcore enough to be in the IRS?

Overheard at the range

"What? Are you packing it in early?"

"Dude, I've gone through 200 rounds and I'm shooting again Wednesday. I can watch people shoot just fine...."

Broke steel target holder rev 3.0. I underbuilt this one to see how weak I could make it.  Now I know.

Dealing with petty tyrants

WWII vets visit the WWII Memorial in DC, found it closed today. Looks like the park police are no match for the greatest generation. Or Obama is not dumb enough to order the park police to arrest American heroes.

Essential workers

Are the accounts still active during a shutdown?
