No 44 Ammo Yet

The anticipated delivery of the 44 MAG ammo I ordered has been delayed, supposedly by on day. In other words, I still don't have any ammo for my new Redhawk revolver. It's not a big concern as long as it does arrive tomorrow as it is now scheduled. That's because Brendan and I will be heading to a range in PA on Saturday, so if the ammo arrives tomorrow and I can pick it up, all should be well and good. I am truly looking forward to shooting this thing, especially with the fairly hot 300 grain rounds I am getting for it. More so though, I look forward to watching Brendan shoot it.

All the best,

Today In History - America Gone Berserk

I think that if you were a truly patriotic American and lived by the Constitution, then no matter whose side you were on - the rioting protestors or the government's - you had to have been saddened by the events  of the day on May 4, 1970 . On that day, National Guardsmen opened fire on Vietnam War protestors (and on some not involved in the protests) at Kent State University. I was not only extremely dismayed that such had taken place, and I say that without taking sides, but was very uneasy that troops were repeatedly called in to disperse such crowds in the first place. That should have been the job of campus security and or the police.

I have often heard those who claim to be patriots saying something to the effect that while I may not agree with what you are saying, I would defend your right to do so with my life. Sadly that was not what happened that day. Four students were killed and eight or nine (depending on the source and I seem to remember it was nine) others were wounded (source). I cannot find any information of how many, if any, Guardsmen were injured but they were attacked by students throwing tear gas canisters back at them (that the guardsmen had fired) along with rocks and other objects.

The Vietnam War, the protests hoping to end it and the response to those protests amounted to a tragedy in our Nation's history.

On Target Political Humor

This may be tasteless and inappropriate political humor but it sure can't get more on target than this and it hit the funny bone every time I watched it. Yes, I have watched it numerous times. Bet you can't watch just once.!



While it doesn't make me at all inclined to vote for Sanders, it kind of, sort of makes me like him a little bit. (How bad can he be if he shoots Berettas).

All the best,
Glenn B
