To All Veterans...



Friday, November 05, 2004


So the wife and I are making plans NOW for the next Boomershoot. For those of you who are not familiar with it, go check it out! It combines long range shooting with EXPLOSIVES!!

Picture From Boomershoot 2004, a reactive target goes BOOM!

It's over on the Idaho/Washington border, in the little town of Moscow, Idaho. Make your plans now, as space is limited. What more does a growing boy need? Oh, and my son might like it too!


Yah! My blog is back! After some horrible problems, the IT guys over at Blogger have fixed me! Thanks Guys and Gals!!

So, I have a couple of things for ya....
First, what is up with the left wing moonbats in California? Jeez, These people are WAY out in left field, like not even on the field, more like the parking lot! To fully comprehend the enormous scope of their 'asshattery' (Thanks Rachel!) You must check this out! What in the sweet chocolate Christ is wrong with these fucking people? I mean, do they really believe that by burning flags, destroying property, and assaulting Police Officers they will change anything? The only thing it gets them is a felony conviction, and they lose their right to vote! Wait, maybe this IS a good idea! Without THEM voting, the GOP will rule! Go Baby Go!! Jeez, maybe I've had too much coffee.

OK, new Cuppa Joe in hand, Lets move one to ANOTHER asshat group.... The Violence Policy Center. (No link, not yet!) This group of left wing shit stains are SOOOOO anti -gun, they believe every American who owns a gun should be arrested. They want ALL guns banned forever! Could you imagine the deer and elk population explosion with no hunters? So, to help turn "middle America" against the gun industry, they have published a (now the link) list of guns that are made for kids. This is to prove that the gun manufacturers are targeting our children! Forget the fact that the Manufacturers don't advertise in kid's mags, only in grown-up mags. Forget the fact that the kids themselves CAN'T even buy the ammo, much less the GUNS! How do people come up with this crap?

So, in response, I would advise EVERYBODY to go there and thank them! Tell them you found the perfect rifle or shotgun for your kid, ON THEIR LIST! I know they have made my Christmas shopping a little easier!

*Thanks to Kim DuToit for pointing this one out!

Today's PIG Pic..

Well Kids, today, for show and tell, I brought out the beautiful, Winchester Model 94. Ain't she purdy? This Rifle is chambered in 30-30 Win. Which is sufficient to dispatch any mammal on the North American Continent. The Barrel is only 20" long, so don't expect to make any 300 yard shots with this! However, it only weighs about 6.5 pounds, so the weight is very manageable. Stocks are American walnut, with no checkering. (This no-nonsense look has great appeal to me. I don't know why, just does.) The best part? New from Winchester, they run about $375 - $400. Used is about $250. Nice.

So, If you are looking for a nice little rifle, to have and to hold, I would highly recommend adding one of these to your collection.

Tonight I was Awarded a special Civilian's Commendation from the Sheriffs Office for doing something Firemen do every day. I have some mixed feelings about it. The other guy who got one caught the Asswipe that had just moments before killed one of our Sheriffs deputy's. Now THAT guy is a hero. Anyway, here is the award.

Citizen Service Medal

Oh well, If you want to learn more about it, go see the little wifey's blog.

Tomorrow, another PIG pic!

Thank You Sir, May I have another...4 YEARS!

YAH! Ding Dong the witch is dead! Which old witch? JOHN FUCKIN KERRY!!!

President Bush showed the Demoncraps that American is not as stupid as they would like to think! Bush received the most popular votes of any President in history. AND, to sweeten the pot that much more..... We own the House of Representatives, the Senate, and get to make a couple of key appointments to the Supreme Court!

There is only one thing I wasn't pleased with. My State...Washington...Went to Fuckwit. Well the electoral votes may go to Fucknut, but MY vote went to Bush!

Speaking of votes, I didn't see any of the problems some people are talking about. We went in, showed the woman our card, see pointed to the right book and we were shown where to sign. After that, they walked me over to the booth I had to use, my son watched while I made my selections, and I was done in a matter of minutes! Then, as we were walking out, the nice lady asks, "Has you son voted yet?" Wha???? "No Ma'am, he wasn't, not yet." She smiles really big and says "We have a children's booth right over here." Needless to say, he was THRILLED! He got a ballot that looked just like Daddys, (except a different color) and a voting machine that was exactly like mine! He voted for George Washington for Pres, Dolly Madison for First Lady, Bruce Lee for Secretary of Self Defense, and Michael Jordan for Secretary of Sports. It's little things like this that will encourage the next generation to vote!

I am SOOOOOOO happy! I am talking full on, dancing, singing, shouting from the roof tops! I have to admit I was a little worried about this election. I had planned to go out and buy a couple new "assault weapons" just in case Fucknut was elected and wanted to make em illegal. Now I can give the budget a break and buy food and shoes for my kid instead.

New School

OK, as you have probably noticed, I am a big supporter of an individuals right to Keep and Bear Arms. HOWEVER, with gun ownership comes responsibility. To fully accept that responsibility, you need to go out and get some firearms training. Here in Washington, we have a top notch school, The Firearms Academy of Seattle. Now, I have gone through their FAS 2,3,4,5 as well as their FAS Defensive Shotgun class. These classes were VERY well taught, with an emphasis on safety, and our state laws. I enjoyed my time there, and consider the money spent there as an investment. I consider the owners to be friends, and if they called, I would come to their assistance in a heartbeat! With that said, I also profess that I am not a gun school snob. I know there are other excellent schools like Gunsite, Insights, FrontSight, Lethal Force Institute, and a host of others.

So, with this said, allow me to introduce the new kid on this block. "This Block, Mike?" Yes, this block. For this school is not new, it is merely new to us in the Pacific Northwest. Clint Smith's 'Thunder Ranch'. Check out the Article in the Liberal Rag 'The Oregonian' titled "Oregon gets gun school with a reputation". It made the FRONT PAGE, is suprisingly well written, objective, even supportive! One quote I loved was from the town Manager, who said:
Lakeview town manager Roberta Huddleston thinks most of the 7,400 residents of economically strapped Lake County are delighted about the arrival of the shooting school.

Nice. You better believe I'll be spending my money there! When you have a business that is as controversial as a gun school, it is important to have the support of the community around you. These are the first people your students are going to interact with. If they have a bad experience, they won't come back. However, it sounds like Clint and Heidi have their collective 'Ducks" in a row.

Welcome to the Pacific Northwest Clint, and Heidi, welcome home. Look for both my wife and I to be attending one of your first classes.

Forget Mardi Gras!

Dude, this ain't Fat Tuesday, IT'S ELECTION TUESDAY!
Well folks, it's finally here. And although I could continue to bore you with more of the same political garbage that we have been forced to choke down for the last 12 months, I will refrain. Instead, I will take this moment to simple ask that everybody who has followed the issues, and is knowledgeable, go vote. Whether you are right or wrong, left or right, in or out, up or down, please please please go vote. If you didn't bother to pay attention, don't vote. Don't go in there just to say you did. Please make an informed, intelligent decision.

On that note, this is the last election post you will see. I will blog more on the new or newly re-elected President tomorrow!

* Remember folks, no matter the outcome, he who gets elected is the President! We don't have to like his policies or him, but we will respect the Office, and the position he holds!
