My Congratulations To President Elect Obama

Well we fought the good fight, but he whooped our candidate, and us, in the electoral vote, not so much in the popular vote, but certainly enough to win. So in the spirit of being an American I must offer my congratulations to President Elect Obama. I can only hope I will not force myself to eat those words later. Yes that means I am not optimistic about the outlook for our country under President Obama, but I will in the best of spirit of being a citizen of the United States of America respect my president (president elect), as you should too, even though many of us will probably disagree with him and the great majority of his policies. So long as he upholds the Constitution and honestly tries to do the best he can for our great nation, then he deserves that respect as president (or as president elect as he is now). Time will tell for how long he deserves it.

He is our president elect. He will become, in a couple of months, our president. He will then be our president for at least 4 years. Live with it, get used to it. Keep letting your voices be heard though because that is your legacy from your freedom loving forefathers, it is your right and even your duty as citizens. As you move along through the next 4 years, you will have plenty of time to support him, criticize him, or damn him depending upon his performance. You will also have plenty of time to prepare for the 2012 elections. Think about that and do what is needed to be done in order to assure a strong nation with free citizens who enjoy their rights and liberties under our Constitution.

I also wish to offer my condolences to John McCain and his hopes to attain the presidency. To the Republican party all I can say is get your fucking act together better luck next time; and remember - you make your own luck.

All the best,
Glenn B

EXERCISE YOUR LIBERTIES AND FREEDOMS NOW...

...while you still have them to exercise. I refer especially to your liberties and rights pertaining to firearms and ammunition ownership. Obama was one of the most anti-gun senators of all times, and if you do not think that he will make plans to reinstate the Assault Weapons Ban, and probably do even worse than that, then you are either a fool or someone without the capacity for logical thought (hmm, I suppose those two things are the same).

I think you should have already taken a hint from my last two posts and gotten round to action already; but in case you are slow to get going, or if you just cannot see a hint when it is right there in front of your face, then allow me to be blunt:

GO OUT NOW AND BUY AS MANY FIREARMS, AND THE AMMUNITION FOR THEM, AS YOU CAN AFFORD. CHANCES ARE THAT PRETTY SOON FIREARMS AND AMMUNITION SALES WILL SKYROCKET CAUSING PRICES TO GO UP. FURTHERMORE, THE CHANCES ARE ALSO VIRTUALLY A SURE THING THAT SOON AFTER OBAMA IS ORDAINED HOLY SAVIOR OF MANKIND SWORN IN AS PRESIDENT, LEGISLATION WILL BE PASSED SWIFTLY TO SEVERELY CURTAIL OUR RIGHTS WITH REGARDS TO FIREARMS OWNERSHIP.

If you don't get it by now, then I suppose you never will, but I'll try to explain it one more time briefly: The right to keep and bear arms is the most important one we have. Without it, and without our ability to protect our freedoms, rights and liberties, the government will be able to place the yoke of servitude upon us. That is not the American way. In the U.S. of America it is the government that is supposed to serve the people and not the other way around; but from what I have heard during Obama's campaign he sees that the other way around. Heavens help us!

All the best,
Glenn B

Have Been Busy Ordering...

...things like 7.62x39 ammunition. I went on the Sportsmansguide.com site and I ordered:

1. Wolf® 7.62 x 39 122 Gr. HP 500 rds. Product: WX2-54048 In Stock. Quantity: 1, Unit Price: $109.22, Total Price: $109.22

2. Wolf® 7.62x39 154 Gr. SP 500 rds. Product: WX2-73974 In Stock. Quantity: 1, Unit Price: $113.97, Total Price: $113.97

That works out like this:

Payment Information:----------------------------------------------------------------------Merchandise Total: $223.19
Shipping and Handling: $17.49Shipping Method: [Ground]
Coupon: [SN441] - $10.00
---------------------------------------------==============-----------
* Grand Total: $230.68

That will give me over somewhere over 2,000 rounds on hand. Hopefully they have it in stock. I will probably also order another 1,000 rounds of it in 122 grain FMJ.

Now I only own one rifle to shoot that ammo. We thought Brendan also would have had a Saiga in 7.62x39 by now, but the gun store that told us they had it today told Brendan they sold it. Those rotten dirt bags, I do not know how they stay in business. had us calling them for almost 2 full weeks, telling us each time they were looking for it in their basement stockpile, and that it was in stock for sure, then tell us they sold it. I called and gave them a bit of my mind. The other guy who was suppose to get some in said his planned for ones never arrived.

So what to do with all that ammo and one Yugo through which to shoot it. Well, I just ordered another Yugo from SAMCO. It is supposedly in NEW condition, and it cost $249.95 plus shipping of $20.50. I hope they have my C&R license on file or this could become a hassle. I sent my C&R to them back in June or July when I ordered a Spanish Mauser from them (that was on back order and has not yet been filled). Hopefully the Yugo order will be filled without delay, so I get one. You can bet they are in short supply, and will sell out soon at inflated prices (yes I know the price is already inflated).

So there goes $501.13 that I know was well earned money, and that I think is well well spent money too. At least that much of my pie will not get redistributed.

Anyone know a good source for cosomoline?

All the best,
