Happy New Year, Goofy World!

My buddy Tim has fired up his blog mojo. Check him out at http://scarecroweyesonyou.blogspot.com

Apparently, he is focusing (for now) on what we screw around with down at the shop.

:-)

Oh, yeah- my very first Saiga-12 is on the way! 20 rounds of 12 gauge slug is SURE to callous up the old shoulders....thank you, Mike D!

I gotta write General Kalashnikov a thank-you letter, too.

Coolest Nerdy Toy...

...from the coolest Christmas movie, EVAH!
Lots of folks wax poetic about "A Christmas Story," this time every year, and the Leg Lamp; some lean more towards the Chevy Chase classic Griswold Christmas; some traditionalists gotta have their Charlie Brown. As for me, though, it ain't Christmastime in the US without a bit of Bruno.

THIS TOY has got to be the coolest thing, ever. I want one for a tree topper.

Where do I Start?

Every since the primaries, I have had more people approach me asking where to begin their education on preparedness than I have for all of time prior to the primaries.

While prepearedness should be a way of life for our generation, as it was for our grandparents and great-grandparents, unfortunately, in many cases it is not. The thought processes that go along with "the mindset" are often overwhelming to many newbies, and they tend to panic and lean towards the "what guns do I get!?!" mentality.

Firearms are a tool. I would rather see a newbie get a reliable .22 and several thousand rounds of ammo for a few hundred dollars, and make other preps, than see someone run out and buy a top-of-the line HK, AR or FAL and 200 rounds of ammo.

Along those lines, people should be charitable before, during and after a crisis, and you simply cannot do that if you cannot take care of you and yours FIRST.

With that in mind, an excellent place to start on the internet is http://www.survivalblog.com/.

If you are still convinced that you MUST learn everything about guns, begin with Boston's Gun Bible. While it cannot cover everything, and it has a lot of opinion in it, it is a good read and quite logical in many areas.

Good Luck, and don't let the Bastards grind you down.

English to Gunsmith dictionary

Anybody know where I can find one to hand out to folks BEFORE I take in work?

Today's example:

(In English) "Can you clean my shotgun for me?"

(Gunsmith SHOULD hear) "I've kept this buried in my back yard for 2 years, and hadn't cleaned it for at least 10 years before that. I think the freeze/thaw cycle might have left a mark on the bluing; mechanical parts X, Y and Z also stick sometimes- can you make it look brand new, clean it, test it, and only bill me for 30 minutes of work?"

I'm just saying.

Perhaps $150 Mossbergs wouldn't become $20 Mossbergs (requiring $200 of work & parts!) if they had been fortunate enough to have been born Benellis- but somehow, I doubt it.

Having a truck gun is one thing-full of dirt & lint & kept in a soft case in your trunk for 3 weeks during first snow, well, not so hot.

Hey, on a n up note, check out the newish hat at the NRASTORE.
