Tomorrow is Veterans Day. That’s why you’re getting this today.

Thank a vet. And vets — Thank You! We wouldn’t be here without you. I had a double blessing this week — I was able to thank a vet while we were voting.

And today is the USMC’s 241st birthday!



THANK YOU for voting. My take on this election is simply that people can’t stand Hillary Clinton. Had the Democrats nominated a likeable candidate, the picture would be different. But what do I know — I’m just a guy at a keyboard. (And right now might be a good time to put some money in the stock market.) Remember, I warned that this would be a disaster.

Trump has better coverage than Verizon

We’re still waiting for those Hollyweird liberals, who promised to do so, to leave the country after Trump’s election.

SOME folks at my polling place were carrying concealed, with no problems or discussion. Note that MS law generally prohibits CCW at a polling place, a church, or a place posted with a no guns sign, unless one has the enhanced permit. My poll is all of the above.

We’ve noted no riots or other disturbances from the conservatives when “their” president wasn’t elected and Bill Clinton or Barack Obama was (twice each). But we are seeing some now by the other side after Donald Trump’s election. Perhaps that tells you which side has the better idea.

Speaking of Felons

President Obama reportedly commuted the sentences of 98 more federal inmates last Thursday, bringing his overall tally during his time in office to 944 commutations and 70 pardons. Forty-two of these last 98 felons had been serving life sentences, most for drug trafficking crimes, and at least 14 of them for firearm-related crimes.

White House press secretary Josh Earnest did not rule out the possibility of President Obama pardoning Hillary Clinton before he leaves office in January on Wednesday. In other words, he knows she did it.


Philadelphia Indemnity Insurance Company of Bala Cynwyd, PA, has stopped insuring some gun businesses due to a revision to the Company’s Underwriting Guidelines which dictates that sales or rental of NFA Title II (aka class 3) weapons, modern sporting rifles, semi-automatic rifles, OR COMPONENTS OR ACCESSORIES FOR ANY OF THESE FIREARMS “are no longer an acceptable exposure.”

John Farnam reports that last weekend our sitting, Democrat president (during an interview) encouraged aliens, non-US citizens, to vote in our upcoming national election. For them to vote, be they legal or illegal, is a clear violation of our law.

The Only Ones

Boston, MA, has recently decided that it now needs to fingerprint current and prospective constables so authorities can run out-of-state background checks on them, after two Boston Police officers were shot, allegedly by a constable who ran afoul of the law outside of Massachusetts. 33-year-old Kirk Figueroa allegedly opened fire on the two officers last month while they investigated a report of a domestic disturbance. Figueroa had a criminal record in Georgia before becoming a Boston constable. Massachusetts constables serve legal documents in civil matters like lawsuits, divorces, and evictions, and in some instances they can take people into custody and secure property. Some are elected, while others are appointed, depending on the municipality.

So, we have big brother fingerprinting and running background checks on citizens who want to carry a gun, but not on their own officers.

An unidentified US Park Police officer negligently shot himself in the foot last week while he was being attacked by a raccoon in Rock Creek Park in Washington, D.C. Another report indicates that it took the officer approximately nine shots to hit his own foot.

Be careful out there

A 69-year-old Oregon elk hunter was rescued from the Maury Mountains last week after he was involved in an ATV rollover crash while ascending a steep hill while dragging a bull elk. The elk’s antlers impaled the man during the accident, which occurred in an area remote enough to require rescuers to carry the victim a half mile to a spot where a helicopter could land.


Don Kates, a pioneer in the arenas of civil rights, academia, law and writing, passed away on November 1, 2016 at the age of 75. His work represented a key foundation of the Heller and McDonald decisions.

Mike Dillon of Dillon Precision (The Blue Press) and Dillon Aero passed away on the morning of November 7th, 2016.

Janet Reno, US Attorney General under President Bill Clinton from 1993-2001, died this week at the age of 78 from complications of Parkinson’s disease. Reno was probably the worst AG in US history, as evidenced by her involvement in the Waco massacre, Whitewater, Filegate, bungling at the FBI laboratory, Monica Lewinsky, alleged Chinese nuclear spying, questionable campaign financing in the 1996 Clinton-Gore re-election, suspension of Constitutional protections in federal prosecutions, illegal FBI email snooping, and the armed seizure of 5-year-old Elian Gonzalez in Miami.

S&W name change

Smith & Wesson Holding Corp. wants to change its name to American Outdoor Brands Corp. Investors will vote on the change at a Dec. 13 meeting. The change would only affect the holding company, not the brand name of its guns. But S&W has stepped in it before.

Quality squared

Benelli has reunited with Duck Commander and will be the exclusive shotgun provider for the Duck Commander media properties.


Product review: You’re probably familiar with the flexible polymer speedloader strips for revolvers. I have use the straight/linear ones from Bianchi and Tuff Products. The Bianchis work well, but are available only in .38/357 and .44 rim sizes. The Tuff Strips are available in most every caliber and are offered in either black or orange. These are different formulations and I have found the black ones to be entirely unsatisfactory because they break up quickly, and sometimes melt and leave corrosion on the ammo. The orange ones, on the other hand, seem to be excellent.
