Found on Facespace

Saw this posted by a BACA member, and figured I would spread it a bit...


Hero? No I am not
I am a biker
I am a physical presence
I am emotional support
Child Abusing cowards beware for I am not one
I am part of a body, a family like no other
one of worn leather, shining chrome, and burning hearts!
Skin tattooed with our intent
For some we are the comfort after a bad dream, for others we ARE the nightmare
THE CHILDREN- they are the Heros

Politics... BAH, HUMBUG

So, I'm sure most people are just as tired of the Republican Primary Season as I am.

Seriously: are they in a competition to see just how badly they can fail?

Anyway, this post over at Atomic Nerds got me thinking: what would I want in a candidate? If I could build a candidate for office the way I would an AR, what features would I want?


- No religion. Leave it at home, I don't care to hear about it. Don't recall ever seeing a spot on an employment application asking about my faith, so I don't want to know about yours.

- Knowledge of basic civics. Such as knowing the Bill of Rights, and that it means the government "may not". Bonus points for not agreeing with something (such as gun ownership), but defending it as being enumerated

- Stop trying to avoid "scandals". Seriously, that was one thing Obama did that I appreciated (and that Clinton seriously messed up). Prefer someone who will own their mistakes to someone who tries to excuse them

- Actually admit to not knowing something at some point. Seriously folks: nobody is an expert on everything. Would be refreshing to have a candidate answer a question "Honestly, I'm not sure what to tell you on that. I'll have to do some research on the topic..."

How about y'all: what do YOU want to see in a candidate?

Casting about for blogfodder

And caught this at MArooned

Rules are simple: "What 5 firearms would I purchase, should price nor practicality be an issue?"

Hoo, boy!


Beretta 93-R Because Mack Bolan couldn't be wrong. Already have the Automag, need the Italian machinepistol to go with it.

Size of a 92F, select fire, uses commonly available magazines. What's not to love?

Le Mat The ultimate in percussion revolver fighting pistols

H&K MP5SD For Spoon, who considers this the ultimate in fun to shoot

Pfeifer-Zeliska .600 Nitro Express pistol Do I even NEED to explain?

.45 Luger C'mon... who WOULDN'T want one?

Interesting article

So... as anyone in the shooting community knows, there has been a long-standing debate about what caliber to use for a defensive handgun. Recently, a friend of mine sent me this article, which shows some interesting facts for the debate.

I've always told people to carry whatever they felt comfortable with. If you're fine with a pocket .22, and feel that will do what you need it to do, cool. If you feel you need a Smith .500, rock on with your bad self.

Me? There's always a .32 in my pocket. What's on my hip varies: my .45, or the .357, or even the Beretta 9mm. I'm certain any of them will preform well if needed.

Go read: what this man's study shows is something many have known for awhile. That there is no "magic bullet"
