Bacon Nevermore

One of the things about hunting wild game is that you never quite can tell, at least with fairly big game, when the tables may be turned and the hunter becomes the hunted. Such was the case with a German hunter who was after wild boar. He shot at one and followed it into some reeds and the beast attacked. My guess is he was gored by the boars tusks. The hunter later died at a hospital. Getting gored and dying sucks, doing it while hunting down your next rasher of bacon and getting to taste it nevermore makes it an even more terrible way to go. More at the source.

Light Posting Anticipated

I will be working all this week and thst is okay by me because I can use the cash. I may be working full time, more or less, for the next month or more because someone quit and I will be covering until they find a replacement. I would say thank goodness except in this case it came about because of someone else's misfortune. Still though, I am grateful for the work when I need it. Because I will be working full time for awhile, I imagine my blogging will be very limited but I will try to blog at least a few days each week.

Now to get some chores done, like: do my laundry, attend to my critters,  clean some guns, put a rifle or three up for sale, find out which rifle of mine is missing a bolt I cannot identify, vacuum the basement, clean out the trunk of my car, and whatever else I can do to appease the wife by my being busy. Then I will put seeds in the bird feeders and also enjoy a fine German bier.

All the best,

Kindness Rebuked

After reading this article about a donut shop being shamed by the LGBT community (or whatever they call themselves today) I immediately thought of my post 'Kindness'. My words in that post could not be more true.

Merry Christmas except to you whining snowflakes who fill the world with vitriol.

The Call Of The Dollar

Just when I thought I'd be spending some days Christmas shopping in NYC and still have enough down time left over to get in some late season deer hunting, someone at work quit. What that means for me is that instead of working part-time on-call, I'll probably be working full time until they hire someone new. That could take awhile unless they find a candidate with the proper license and who has an active background clearance. The darned background investigations can take a couple of months, or more, to conclude. Not bad for me money-wise though, that is if it takes a month or three, because I will be raking in a steady cash flow and what I can get before Christmas will be a big help. Any money made after that probably goes into my very meager savings account (or to buy yet another gun).

Of course, maybe the person who quit will have second thoughts and come back, that is if the bosses allow for such, and I will wind up with those eggs I just counted not hatching at all.

It Is The Christmas Season,
So Go Ahead, Carry Out All The
Random Acts of Kindness You Want.
Just Do Not Be At All Surprised
When Someone Tells You To
Shove Them Up Your Ass!
 
And such is how it goes in real life especially when dealing with libturds. Don't let that stop you from being kind though, nor from enjoying the true meaning of Christmas.

A Stocking Stuffer For The Dogs

You know, if you have dogs that are part of the family and if you celebrate Christmas, then the dogs get Christmas presents. This year, along with some Duck dog biscuits, they will get a special treat, this:

If I Only Had A Thumb

I could grab around some big titties,
Or steer my car around inner cities,
Or up to ten I could add the sum,
And I could do some real good twiddling
and grab a pen to do some written riddling
If I only had a thumb...
 
So allegedly go the woes of more than one shooter who has attempted to fire a Savage 10ML-II (a muzzle loading rifle) in stainless steel. At least one lawsuit is currently under way seeking damages from Savage. More here at the source.

I have no clue if Savage is at fault here for having manufactured muzzle loaders with faulty metal in the barrels or if this is due to shooter error (it does not take much to screw up how you load a muzzle loader) and am not finding fault with either but just giving you a warning that if you own a muzzle loader - especially a Savage 10ML-II - be careful or in the case of a 10ML-II maybe consider asking Savage if they will replace it. Savage Arms reportedly discontinued the manufacture of these rifles in 2010 (source). What Savage Arms has to say about the 10ML-II can be seen here.

Here are some points, from quotes in the source article, I'd like to specifically address on this issue:

"The company acknowledged in Hansen’s case that it received 45 legal claims related to burst or split barrels dating to 2004. Hansen’s lawyers say documents show Savage Arms created a special “muzzleloader return team” and faced hundreds of warranty and service claims."

Seems like an awful lot of claims about burst or split barrels for one particular model gun. Either a lot of idiots buy those guns or maybe there just could be something to the claim that the metal of the barrels is unsound. It also seems odd that there were hundreds of warranty/service claims for one particular model if that model was not in some way faulty.

"Some hunters were offered free replacement rifles after they were told their errors caused the damage."
 
Add to that the alleged fact that while Savage blamed user error, they also offered some folks replacement rifles and it makes one wonder why would Savage offer replacements if the shooters were at fault. Were they trying to appease folks whose guns had barrels gone bad so they would not file lawsuits or were they doing it out of the goodness of their hearts?
 
"... a federal magistrate in 2015 sanctioned the company for a “purposeful record of obfuscation” that included falsely claiming that it was aware of only two prior explosions while withholding information that showed otherwise."
 
Then there is the obfuscation issue from the earlier case, Savage allegedly claiming many fewer incidents than of which they allegedly were actually aware and a magistrate judge reportedly calling them on it.
 
I am not saying Savage is at fault here but, in my opinion, I think this does not look good for Savage.

Safe shooting my friends.

It's Tough Finding Parking In NY City...

...so tough that it sometimes winds up two cars' drivers wind up vying for the same spot. That can often lead to raised tempers and in one particular case led to several injuries and one fatality - more at the source.

NY City's answer will probably be increased knife-control, maybe making it illegal to drive while in possession of a knife. My solution would be to execute the perpetrator once found guilty.

It Can Cut & It Can Kill...

...but only if you don't burn down your shop and another 20 buildings while trying to forge the blade. Those words probably would have been good advice for the aspiring television taught bladesmith, who tried to forge a blade after supposedly learning how by watching the show Forged In Fire. Yes, it is being reported that his attempt at bladesmithing somehow started a fire that destroyed 20 buildings and injured at least one fireman. More here.

It Followed Me Home From The Gun Auction...

...really it did and it stuck to me like green on the Grinch (which is better than it having been stuck in me).
 


 
It's a heavy duty fillet knife (you probably could fillet dragons with this one, small dragons anyhow). It has a 440C stainless steel blade, green Micarta handle and is 13" overall with a blade length of 8". A Kevin Johnson creation. Kevin Johnson was formerly of DNZ Trading Company but seemingly is now using the company name of Kuzach Knives LLC and a DKZ logo now instead of DNZ. I must say, I got an excellent price on it, much-much lower than the current sale price of $106.25. That makes me a happy camper or fisherman or butcher of dragons.

Even Fairly Conservative Media Outlets Report Fake News

According to an article at One America News Network, the numbers of allegations of violations 
committed by senior staff at the Pentagon have increased since Obama was president. Here is the pertinent quote so you can see exactly how they say it:

"According to the pentagon inspector general’s report on Saturday allegations have increased by 13 percent since the Obama Administration, expanding from 710 allegations in 2015 to 803 last year." (Source.)

What they just said is blatantly untrue relative to the time frame and under whose administration the increased violations took place. If you did not catch it the first time you read the quote read it again because their is something blatantly fake or wrong about what I says. Did you see it the firs time or did you need another look or maybe you have not se it yet!

What that quote says is that the 13% rise in such allegations took place SINCE the Obama administration and that they rose that amount last year! Do you get it now - Obama was still president and his administration was still in power throughout all of last year up to an including the first 20 days of this year. So the reported 13% rise in such allegations did not take place SINCE the Obama Administration but DURING the Obama Administration. Couldn't someone, at a pretty conservative news organization like OANN, have seen that and reported on it as such - no matter how the Pentagon's Inspector General's report made it sound. In other words, can't anyone in the frigging media ever get it right???

It is truly mind boggling that bullshit like this keeps seeping through the cracks and is reported as legitimate news.

Dear Santa Claus,

If you happen to have one of these around your workshop, would you please be so kind as to bring it to me for Christmas. Can't say I have been a very good boy all year but I think good enough to get just this one thing.

Thanks and have a Merry Christmas,
