Found this on a Facebook group that I belong to:
“Imagine you and your family are in a store shopping for whatever reason, that store ends up with an employee that was fired hell bent on revenge, or a gas station where you’re simply grabbing fuel and a soda, all of a sudden it’s being robbed at gun point, well I’m the quiet guy who’s in the isle (sic) next to you who has trained and trained and trained and trained, and guess what I also carry a firearm. I am your silent protector, there’s no police officer there only me, the national guard is not there, only me, not even a Navy Seal team can get there fast enough to save your life. Yet I am there, I am a responsible gun owner with a license to carry a firearm, not only for the safety of myself and my family, but also for you and yours.”
It was meant as a plea to others who don’t believe in the right to keep and bear arms, but it sounds more like Tom Joad delivering a Batman speech.
If I *ever* start to talk like this, reach in to your monitor and gently tap me with a clue bat. I am not a “silent protector”, I’m just some dood who wants to keep on living, no matter what.

Having gone from the über-competitive realms of Phoenix Rod and Gun and Rio Salado to the more laid-back reaches of central Missouri, I can DEFINITELY sympathize.
A Spyderco pocket knife… “He’s from Texas, honey,” I yelled at the television, startling the cats, “That’s not ‘armed’, that’s ‘dressed’, you island-dwelling herbivore!“
Read the whole thing.
PETA thinks they know what is a sport and what is not.
I respond to their, ummmn, assertions over here.
An offhand comment I made awhile back got me thinking: What are the Eight Wonders of the Modern Gun World? What eight guns created since then end of WWII have features that are so outstanding they rise above all others? In no particular order:
- The reliability of Glocks
- The action on a Pre 1964 Model 70
- The adaptabilty of an AR-15
- The trigger on a good 1911*
- The popularity of the Ruger 10/22
- The ergonomics of the CZ75
- The accuracy of the S&W Model 41
- The flexibility of the Thompson Contender
* Yes, I know the 1911 pre-dates World War II, this was more about how the custom 1911 has zoomed in popularity since WWII.
Ok, what should get taken off? What should be added?
Over the last few years I’m getting bombarded with questions about how to send ‘don’t @#$! with me’ signals without having what makes those signals work. “How do I warn someone that I’m ready to rip his face off?” “Uhhh by being ready to rip his face off…”

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Faced with overwhelming and relentless opposition from Michael Bloomberg’s grassroots “Every Town For Gun Safety”, Wayne LaPierre will announce that he’s disbanding the National Rifle Association at the conclusion of this week’s NRA Annual Meeting in Indianapolis.
“Look, everyone”, Wayne said at a press conference today, “We gave it a good run, but it’s over. We just can’t win against the dozens of people who have joined Michael Bloomberg on his new crusade. I mean, have you seen what they’re doing on social media to show how they can get people involved in gun safety and educate people about the realities of firearms? The NRA just can’t compete with that kind of know-how, so it’s time to call it a day and go home.”
Michael Bloomberg was busy purchasing the entire state of Rhode Island as a location for his new mansion and was unavailable for comment.
