Election is TUESDAY.

  • Hillary said this week that she wants more gun control in order to protect violent homicidal felons from their victims. Literally.
  • “Government Executive” polled more than 1,000 government employees about the election and found that 27% of federal workers said they might consider leaving their jobs were Trump elected, and that 53% support Hillary Clinton for president, while 34% support Trump. Fewer federal bureaucrats? That’s reason enough right there…
  • Some polls are now indicating a dead heat in the presidential race. You know what I’m gonna say. Just hold your nose and DO IT.
  • Generally speaking, guns carried openly, or concealed with the enhanced permit, are legal at MS polls. But that is no guarantee of no pushback. Keep it concealed.


Al-Quaeda attack Monday?

The Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps, the country’s elite military force, is sending assets to infiltrate the United States and Europe “very soon” at the direction of Iran’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, according to recent Farsi-language comments from an Iranian military leader.


Armslist wins in suit filed by murder victim’s family.

In Tyler v. Hillsdale County Sheriff’s Department, the full US Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals (Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio and Tennessee) ruled that people who have previously been involuntarily committed for mental illness may be able to regain their Second Amendment rights, because sometimes mental illness is temporary, and so should the gun ban be.

The Rhode Island State Supreme Court has rebuked the East Providence, RI Police Chief Christopher J. Parella for improperly denying residents licenses to carry concealed weapons and for failing to abide by the court’s recent previous directive to do so. But apparently the court did not impose any penalty on the lawbreaking chief.

Competent, sane, law-abiding VETERAN DENIED GUN RIGHTS by US government

Veterans Day is Nov. 11.

I stand with Matt

“Few men living make more than those [pro athletes] who are protesting. Few men living have paid more for that privilege than Matt Keil.”


Do you know how to change a flat tire? I’m assuming yes.

Can you change one?

It was a trick question. You can’t, even if you know how, if you don’t have a spare tire, a jack, and a lug wrench.

Same thing with staying alive. You gotta have the tools with you; probably ON you.


A group of three people attempted to rob a closed Pizza Hut after hours in Charlotte, NC, when one of the victims/employees fatally shot one of the robbers, who was armed with a gun. Predictably, the poor perp’s family is questioning the altercation, implying that Pizza Hut shouldn’t allow their employees to carry guns for protection from their little felon, and that if he had to be killed, it should have been by a security guard or police. They did NOT question why their 28-year-old criminal had his own gun or why he was robbing the joint with it.

A protective order is just a piece of paper. Really, that’s all it is. A piece of paper used as evidence in the trial against the perp that killed you, or as evidence in your acquittal of killing him. You pick.


Labor unions admit lying to their members about gun issues. Big surprise….

Lives matter

A new study shows that Native Americans are killed by police at a higher rate (per capita) than any other race.

No word on the justifications for such homicides or on the rates of violent crimes committed by the various races. In the absence of that sort of information, the study is meaningless.

Recent letter to the editor. Feel free to write your own.


We continue to get reports nationwide about violent incidents at Walmart stores and parking lots. Apparently it’s an epidemic and some police departments are stretched thin due to this alone. It is not Walmart’s, nor the police’s responsibility to keep you safe.

Don’t go to stupid places.

The Only Ones

  • Fresno County, CA, Sheriff’s Deputy & Special Investigations Sgt. Rod Lucas, 46, a 20-year veteran, died Monday afternoon after he was accidentally shot, according to the sheriff’s office. The SO also said that detectives are investigating “how the gun that shot him was accidentally discharged.” It appears that the deputy and another detective were “checking out” (unnecessarily handling) the detective’s backup gun at a sheriff’s office, resulting in a negligent discharge into the sergeant’s chest. Apparently there were a total of four officers in the room at the time, and they were having a discussion about gun safety. We yet don’t know who fired the gun, and speculative reports vary. None of the other officers have been identified. No word yet on any charges filed against the gun.
  • An unidentified Virginia State Trooper “accidentally” fired his weapon while “detaining” an innocent Michigan trucker during an abduction investigation, nearly hitting the trucker in the head.
  • NYPD’s shooting hit ratio runs about 10% to 20% in the field most years. In one year, they fired 1,293 shots on the streets to hit 64 suspects (2.6%) and 11 innocent bystanders.

Ole Miss now has a “Demonstration and Assembly Response Team” to make sure the kids do free speech right.

No word yet on any diaper donations.

Dept. of Idiocy

Mississippi attorney Paul Newton Jr. filed suit against a Gulfport, MS, Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen chicken restaurant because the restaurant included a plastic spork, but no plastic knife, with his drive-through order a year ago. Because he was completely helpless, stupid and unable to cut up his chicken due to the restaurant’s negligence, he says, he choked when he had to eat a piece of fried chicken with his hands and teeth. I bet they didn’t include any diapers either. May I suggest the baby food aisle?

Newton, who immediately dropped the suit after it became public knowledge, is a ~61-year-old Gulfport lawyer and claims to be an expert in trust and tax law. He unsuccessfully ran for a seat on the MS Supreme Court in 2008. Voting is important.

Lunch. Arby’s. That is all.

Record shot?

We have a report that a Monsieur Benjamin Gineste, a French soldier, successfully shot a target at 4150 meters (4540 yards), using .408 CheyTac caliber rifle, on a paper target appearing to be about 3 ft. x 6 ft. Looks like 3 hits out of 12 rounds attempted. This was on Oct. 29, 2016.

About those SERPA holsters


Colt 1911 Machine Pistol

Lose the shoulder stock and it’s good for CCW, right?


  • Springfield Armory’s new SAINT is an AR-15 rifle in the general M4 configuration with mid-length gas system. Apparently good quality, except the polymer handguards (Bravo Company USA) melt off the gas block during high volume firing strings, as does the black finish on the flash suppressor and gas block. Other areas are Melonite coated and survive. $900.
  • Speer’s new Gold Dot G2 bullets are now available in its Law Enforcement line in 9mm (147 gr.), .40 (180 gr.) and .45 ACP (230 gr.). Like the Hornady FTX bullets, instead of a conventional large hollowpoint, the GDG2 has only a shallow impression filled with a high-performance elastomer. On impact, the material is forced into specially designed fissures to start the expansion process. The ammo reportedly passes the FBI protocol tests. About $1 a pop.
  • The Steyr Scout RFR is a straight-pull toggle-lock action (like a biathlon rifle) with a polymer stock and a long Picatinny rail section above the barrel in Scout style. Comes with a survival knife that stows in the stock. Ten round detachable box magazine. Chambered in .22 LR, .17 HMR or .22 WMR. Not available in the US.

Quote of the Week

“The gun-control movement is driven by raw emotion. Facts are irrelevant. Logic is spurned. Utter nonsense is solemnly intoned. It’s little wonder that our most emotive president has made gun control his signature domestic issue.” — Don Feder
