Take THAT, Diane Feinstein!

Because Calico Light Weapon Systems is back in business. After they collapsed under the 1994 Clinton "assault weapons" ban, I thought they were dead for sure. Im not sure who bought them out, or who's in the charge of production now ( the lead designer died in the late 90s, cant remember when), but NO MATTER! The public can now revel in ludicrously large helical-feeding magazines for cheaper prices. Check out their site here--

Im extremely curious what they have in store next, if anything. Now I just have to BUY one...
I have a weird connection with busted stuff. Ive now purchased my second motorcycle after I stripped the other one down, learned a bunch and still couldnt get it running (life lessons flying all around here) and this one doesnt run either. Of course, its alot better off, and all it needs is a seat, fender, blinkers attached, ignition rewired...

oy vey. But boy howdy, that chrome is shiny :)
Pictures later, if I can bear the everlasting shame.

Two very good quotes

"Personal weapons are what raised mankind out of the mud, and the rifle is the queen of personal weapons. The possession of a good rifle, as well as the skill to use it well, truly makes a man the monarch of all he surveys." -Jeff Cooper-

"The right of citizens to bear arms is just one more guarantee against arbitrary government, and one more safeguard against a tyranny which now appears remote in America, but which historically has proved to be always possible." -Hubert Humphrey-

So good, in fact, General MacArthur is being replaced on my header. Sorry, Dougie.

Man vs. Wild, Weenie vs. My Patience

I dont know if youve seen it, but Discovery had a show running called "Man vs. Wild", wherein an utterly insane former Special Air Service (I think) member goes to remote locations and shows the viewer how to survive with the shirt on his back. They put the show on hiatus because of allegations he wasnt really doing any of it; instead, they replaced his show with a whiny guy with no special talent who "survives" for a week in "dangerous" locations, like Wal-Mart, or your neighbor's backyard. Its pathetic. The new show is called Survivorman, and I swear on all my roommate's earthly posessions, the guy is a total weenier.

It makes me sad. If you ever get the chance, you should watch Man vs. Wild--he goes around eating live frogs and similar oddities to survive. You know what you call that? Great television.

Im a huge liar...

Because I never deleted the blog. Now, I feel the need to forcibly convey myself upon the internet once again.
