Anti-594 rally brings Mike Vanderboegh to town

I regret I wasn’t able to attend. Speech here, dealing with neo-Nazis here, hats here. Buy some hats, throw in something above shipping.

Joe wrote up his experience here.

58 more

It’s funny. I showed the cheap AR magazines to all the gunnies I know, and one person bought ten. I’ve bought 108 so far, and now that I know they come in boxes of 100, I’ll just pick up 100 a month instead of 50 every other week.

Tam says it, and it’s common sense. I say it, and I’m crazy.

Mag whore thread

I was motivated to prepare my entry for the mag whore thread. All 1500 rounds fit nicely into my Irwin toolbox.

For the love of horsepower

Ken Block smokes LA. Thanks to Barron for letting me know it was out. I’ve probably watched it a couple dozen times now.

All things must end.

My first pistol, which became my EDC in 1994, was a Ruger P90DC. It started my love of all calibers 45, but I grew weary of the sharp edges, so I sold it and switched to a Glock 21. At some point I realized I could get a Glock 30 with the same capacity, so I carried one of those for a few years. Then, I went insane, sold the G30 and bought a Beretta 96FS which has been my EDC since 2002 or so. I’ve hated it all along, but kept with it for no good reason.

After careful consideration, I picked up a Glock 17 and a couple boxes of Ranger. The holster is on the way. I’d like to get rid of the millstone Beretta, but it’s an unpopular gun for all the reasons I dislike it, so there we are. I’ll keep it as third string EDC. I plan on getting a GM9 and (eventually) Lone Wolf Slide Melt with the race gun, front dovetail option. This gives you ultra high sights (which you need with a can) and a red dot.

This, of course, means it’s no longer EDC-able as nobody makes a holster for that. Actually, I think I will need two slides.

Domo arigato, Shikkoku sama

Shikkoku, named for the anime character, was put down this morning at about 10:30. I stayed with him until the very end – as he had been my nearly constant companion for twelve years, I could not leave him alone to die. He was truly more sinned against than sinning. His last day, I stopped the insulin injections and fed him full cans of cat food for every meal.

Shikkoku is annoyed
