Anyone Using Gab.ai?

Gab.ai is another social media site suggested to me to replace Facebook. Anyone using it, who can invite me inside? I'd like to join but need an invite code.

Thanks,

Anyone Out There On MeWe?

A while back, someone among my readers or another blogger on my link list, told me (or posted about) a new social media website that supposedly would be better than Facebook for privacy and such. I joined and then almost immediately forgot all about it. Recently, I remembered I had signed up many months ago but I'll be damned if I could remember the sites name. So, for weeks now, I've been trying to recall the name of the website but it had been eluding detection by my little gray cells.

Then, a few days back, I received an invitation from someone on that site inviting me to link up on that site. The site is MeWe. I reset my password today and accepted the invitation. 

It all leaves me wondering, are any of my readers also using that social media site and if so:

How do you like it?

If you want, send me an invitation to join up with you; I am signed up as Glenn B.

All the best,

This Says It All...

...and yet they voted her into office! 


God damn, I guess that means there already is a village of idiots and she is their leader. We are truly in trouble; how is it we let this happen!!!

I've Got To Show This To My Local Gin Mill Owner

While I was away for a gun auction this weekend, I stopped in a tavern by the name of Tavern (that's all I saw on the sign outside) in Penn Yan, NY. After a drink, I grabbed a bar menu figuring to get some decent eats in my belly and that is when I saw what might be one of the best menu items I have ever seen for the hungry drunk.

Could be the greatest menu item ever. No, not the Phiily Cheese Steak!

No, I did not order it, I was not hungry enough and did not want to waste any part of those delectable goodies. I will say this though: The next time I am in Penn Yan, NY - I will stop there again and I will make sure I am hungry enough to order it. The only thing I might ask for different than what is in that mess would be Mac & Cheese instead of macaroni salad.

As it stands now though, I need to show that menu offering to the owner of my local gin mill. They offer a really good variety of food already but nothing as appealing as this would be to someone with my lack of taste.

All the best,
Glenn B

One Followed Me Home, The Other Is Awaiting My Return

What better to do on a bitter cold February day than spend it inside a nice warm auction house filled to standing room only for a gun auction. Yeah, I know you can think of plenty of better things but let me tell you it was not a bad way at all to spend my day yesterday. As a matter of fact, I drove to Geneva, NY on Friday for the auction preview. The drive was actually pleasant for a change - zero traffic jams even going through the Bronx in NYC!

I did the preview then headed to my motel in Penn Yan, NY about 21 miles from the auction house. I had gotten the best rate there using Hilton Honors Points; in Geneva they were asking almost double the points of the Hampton Inn in Penn Yan. I suppose that could be because, in my opinion, the heating system at the Hampton Inn at Penn Yan sucks - way too hot for an hour or two and then way too cold for the rest of the night. I should have learned when I went there the first time, this was my second stay at said motel and probably my last in the winter. Anyway, let me proceed to the auction.

Since I had checked in and gotten my bidder's number on Friday afternoon - then inspected the guns, on which I wanted to bid, during the preview - I had little reason to get to the auction house early on Saturday. I arrived around 0930 after a leisurely breakfast at my motel and a scenic drive through the countryside on the way back to Geneva. Even made a stop at a drugstore to refill a prescription for a blood pressure medication I had forgotten at home. 

Well, when I arrived the place was  mobbed with mostly grumpy old me from the looks of them; although, there was a decent smattering of younger & middle-aged men and a decent amount of younger to middle aged women (many more women than there would have been a decade or two ago). I meandered here, there & everywhere within the confines of the auction house and did more looking at guns. One or three more, maybe five or six, caught my eye and I planned to look them all over but had to do something more important interrupted me after looking at a couple or few. I  answered the call of nature then went back to the main room of the auction house. Somehow it slipped my mind that I needed to look at two more pistols on which I wanted to bid and  I wound up looking at some items in the back room and at what knives & ammo they were offering, I just never got to remembering to look at those two other pistols.

The bidding in the back room - where they auction off reloading equipment & supplies, some firearms accessories, archery equipment, and odd lots of fishing and shooting items - was already under way when I got the the auction house. No matter to me, I was interested in only one thing back there - a locking pistol attache style case. Wound up I missed my chance because bidding on it was coincidental to bidding on a gun on which I wanted to bid and a man has to know his priorities - which for me was bidding on the gun. 

The bidding up front started maybe around 10 or 1030 with a snowmobile they had up as the first item, then a couple of bear traps (one vintage one going for around $800), some taxidermy mounts and an item or two more - then the guns. I had not planned to bid on anything until the 44th item on the list a Savage 111 FCNS Hunter rifle in 30-06. Thing is it had already taken it off of my list because the online bidding (which runs prior to the live bidding and ceases at 0800 on the day of the live auction) had already gone above my high bid. I starting bidding on item 61, a Huglu SXS shotgun, never had a chance as it went for way more than I was willing to pay.

I probably had about  30 guns in all that I had picked out on which I planned to bid. At least 5 or 6 of them started out with opening bids right at or above how high I was willing to go, so I declined on them.  Some others I did not get the chance to bid on because thy started at close to what I would offer as my high bid and another bidder beat me to the bid I would have made. Others that I did bid on went anywhere from one bid higher to way too many dollars higher than I was willing to go. All typical for an auction. 

I did have the high bids on two items - one I had intended to bid on (depending on condition) when I did my review of the catalog while still at home and another that caught my eye while I was at the auction house for the preview. The one I had been planning to bid on was a Remington 141 Gamemaster in 35 REM. 

The Remington 141 I picked up at the Hessney Auction.








When I came across it, I picked it up to give it a visual inspection and feel its lines. Then I checked it to see how the action operated. It was as impressive looking as a pretty young lass on a fine sunny fall day and it moved as smoothly as Chinese silk would move against her skin. I fell in love on the spot. It was not like it was an I have to have it kind of a thing but I knew for sure I would be placing bids up to my predetermined high bid amount. 

I wound up with the high bid at the exact high bid price that I had planned on not going over. The thing is, this time I did not figure in the 10% buyers premium or tax as I usually do for my high bid price - so I paid 10% more (plus tax) than I normally would have; I just I liked it that much. My estimation is it is worth every penny and probably $100 to $125 more than the total I paid. Of course, that will all depend on whether it is a shooter or not but it seems everything is in working order so I am optimistic.

The other gun was one I had not planned on placing any bids being it was a pistol. I did not think I'd be bidding on any handguns. That being because should I have the high bid on any, it would require a trip to my local county PD to get a purchase document, another trip back to the auction house to pick up the handgun(s) after that and another trip to the PD to have it put on my license. Since they are having another auction in March, I figured what the heck, I will go to that one to pick up any handguns on which I may have had the high bid at this auction. So I bid on a few of them but only had the high bid on this one.
This High Standard Double Nine was offered "as new".






It's a High Standard Double Nine, 9 shot, nickel plated revolver in 22 S, 22 L & 22 LR. As far as i could tell it is the pre-1971 version. It indeed looks to be "as new" as does the box it was in. It also looks so much like the cowboy cap-guns I used to play with as a kid it was an instant hit with me. The thing on this one is I took a big chance bidding on it since it was one of the two pistols I forgot to look over before the bidding commenced. These guns are all sold as is/where is and if you don't look them over before bidding you may be in for a nasty surprise when you have the high bid, pay for them and only then find some damage. Luckily for me, I bid without examining it and it seems to be okay. I looked it over when picking up the Remington 141 and I was not disappointed - it looks "as new". In fact, it looks to be unfired to have been fired very little if at all. Besides that, the box is in VG to EXC shape. I may just clean it and put it in a display because it is that nice of a gun! Then again, whom am I kidding; of course, I will shoot it; I am more the shootist than the collector although I am a bit of that too.

After all was paid for and over, I headed right home. Had a nice drive up there with no traffic and the drive home was likewise. Quite unusual for a trip that has any part of it going through any portion of NYC. All in all an excellent trip and I picked up some really nice guns.

All the best,
Glenn B

My Son Just Turned 45...

...and no, I do not mean 45 years old. Heck, he isn't even 30 yet. What I do mean is: He just got his first pistol in 45 AUTO (45 ACP). We have always fooled around saying 'the Glock 45 mitt der long slide' spoofing the scene from The Terminator in which Arnold Schwarzenegger asked for "...45 long slide with laser sighting...". 



Well, this past Saturday, I stopped off at my local FFL and left my Glock 21 there to be shipped to Brendan in AR. His FFL received it yesterday and he picked it up before yesterday was over; I am guessing right after he got off of work. 

Now granted, a Glock 21 is not the Glock 45 mitt der long slide and the one I sent to Brendan does not have laser sighting. The one that does have a long slide is a Glock 41 which has a longer slide because it is a competition pistol and that longer slide, with its longer sight radius and added weight up front, is beneficial to the competition shooter. Still though, the Glock 21 has a longer slide than do my Glock 26, my two Glock 30s, the Glock 17 I sold last year, the Glock 19 I was issued when in LE, or Brendan's Glock 43. So, his newly acquired Glock 21 does - kind of, sort of, almost - have what you could call a long slide and that's not much of a stretch. I mean just compare them - it's pretty long. The Glock slide lengths of the pistols Brendan and I have or have had as compared to the Glock 41, with the true Long Slide, are listed here in order of decreasing slide length:

41 = 8.31"
21 = 7.60"
17 = 7.32"
19 = 6.85"
30 = 6.77
26 = 6.26"
43 = 6.06"

Long Slide or not - he wants to shoot it as soon as he can and was getting ready to order a case of ammo for it until he saw the prices. Those prices are rather long too - so to speak - at least as compared to the price of the 9mm ammo he shoots in his other pistols. Normally, I'd buy him a case to start him off but not this time. You see, I told him he had to pay me for the Glock 21 and all I wanted was what it cost to ship it to him through my FFL (have to ship outbound through an FFL here in NY - at least in my county). That was $80. Then I thought better of it and told him to keep the money and use it to buy ammo, so that should help him shorten the ammo cost burden at least a little bit. 


Not a long slide but not bad for free, even if the ammo is fairly expensive.
Speaking of ammo and shooting it, I sent him all the mags I could fit into the box, which means he now has 4 magazines for it. I am sending another two in just a bit. Right after I complete this blog entry, I will be heading out to the post office with a box containing another two Glock 21 magazines and some other goodies for him.

An Extremely Painful Execution Would Be Way Too Merciful...

...for scum who wind up convicted of crimes like the acts reported in this article about a group of suspects who were arrested for allegedly planning to kidnap, sexually abuse and then kill a child. Not only were they arrested in relation to that alleged conspiracy but at least some of them were charged with other violations including sexual crimes against children.

The Locker Room at The Golf Club

Several men are in the locker room of a golf club.  A cellular phone on a bench rings and a man engages the hands-free speaker function and begins to talk.  Everyone else in the room stops to listen.

MAN:  "Hello"

WOMAN: "Hi Honey, it's me.  Are you at the club?"

MAN: "Yes."

WOMAN: "I'm at the shops now and found this beautiful leather coat It's only $2,000; is it OK if I buy it?"

MAN:  "Sure, go ahead if you like it that much."

WOMAN:  "I also stopped by the Lexus dealership and saw the new models.  I saw one I really liked."

MAN:  "How much?"

WOMAN: "$90,000"

MAN:  "OK, but for that price I want it with all the options."

WOMAN:  "Great! Oh, and one more thing... I was just talking to Janie and
found out that the house I wanted last year is back on the market. They're
asking $980,000 for it."

MAN:  "Well, then go ahead and make an offer of $900,000  They'll probably
take it.  If not, we can go the extra eighty-thousand if it's what you
really want."

WOMAN: "OK. I'll see you later! I love you so much!"

MAN:  "Bye! I love you, too."

The man hangs up. The other men in the locker room are staring at him in astonishment, mouths wide open.

He turns and asks: "Anyone know whose phone this is?"


Hat tip to Jim S. for this one.

The FBI Essentially Has Given Up...

...after less than two years of investigation! No, I am not referring to the investigation of Donald Trump for 'collusion' with the Russians. I am talking about the October 1, 2017 Mandalay Bay shooting, in Las Vegas, that resulted in the deaths of 58 people and injuries of almost 900! Those killed and otherwise shot were all allegedly mowed down by Stephen Paddock. It has become evident to me that the FBI is either virtually worthless when it comes to legitimate investigations and/or for some reason just does not give a damn about the 58 lives that were lost & their grieving families and loved ones, nor about the hundreds of people who were injured. I say so because of  what Aaron Rouse, the agent in charge of the FBI’s Las Vegas office, reportedly said about figuring out what was Paddock's motive:

"“It wasn’t about MGM, Mandalay Bay or a specific casino or venue,” Aaron Rouse, the agent in charge of the FBI’s Las Vegas office, told The Associated Press. “It was all about doing the maximum amount of damage and him obtaining some form of infamy."...
"“This report comes as close to understanding the why as we’re ever going to get,” Rouse "said." 

More at the source.

As close as we are ever going to get! It's all apparently supposition and the FBI is seemingly saying that is the best they can do - suppose this or that! Is this agent is throwing his hands up in the air and saying we give up, we in the FBI - a world class A1 investigative agency - are not smart enough to figure out his motive and show you the hard cold evidence by which we arrived at that conclusion? Maybe it is that the FBI is hiding something from us, is that possible? Do they really expect us to believe they do not know, or cannot uncover, his motive! Damn, they created the motive and even the whole crime, it seems, when it was convenient to them investigating our president. Yet, when it comes to a guy who killed 58 Americans and wounded hundreds more - they are left pretty much clueless! 

I find absolutely incredible that by now and forever afterward they do not and will not ever know what was his underlying actual motive and not be able to show solid proof of their conclusion as to his motive and that they essentially seem to be giving up. Damn, this investigation should remain open until his motive is found out conclusively. So why does it appear as if the FBI has given up? My guess, and mind you it is only a guess, is that Paddock had ties to powerful and influential people who want this investigation squashed. Again though, I stress that is just a guess on my part - maybe though it is based somewhat on the recent not so stellar behavior of other FBI agents in other recent investigations and actions that amounted to travesties of justice at worst and fiascos at best.

I pretty much have lost any faith I ever may have had in holding the FBI up as being one of the premiere law enforcement agencies in the world. After seeing what they did with the Clinton investigation, what they seemingly created with the alleged made up dossier to create a Russian collusion case against President Trump, how their agents have evidently lied under oath to Congress and smirked about it, how other of their agents and employees sent text messages back and forth ranting against Donald Trump ever becoming president and, as I recall, bragging about having a back-up plan to essentially oust him if he did become president, and how they have dropped the ball on this investigation (among others), it leaves no doubt in my mind that the FBI's investigative prowess and integrity amounts to just about naught. I am beginning to think that every one of their investigations, that were ever in the least bit questionable, going back many years, should be subjected to a srutinous review.

Build The Wall (Hopefully With Schummer and Pelosi On The Other Side)




Let's face it - a border wall will never completely stop entry by illegal aliens or smugglers & their contraband but they do work and have a marked effect on curtailing both the illegal entry of aliens and the smuggling of contraband into a country. They also would have enormous beneficial effects on our national security and  economy.

The Whiners Among Islamic Believers...

...seemingly are very little different than the incessant complainers, moaners and groaners of the far left here in the USA; at least that is my opinion after reading an article about some Muslims reportedly crying foul over the logo Nike has placed on the bottom of some of its shoes (and mind you I said some Muslims because I find it hard to believe all of them are doing so). They, the some Muslims, are saying it is extremely offensive and blasphemous and are demanding Nike gets rid of it, all because they see it as resembling the written word Allah (in Arabic). More at the source.

Here is what they reportedly are deeming offensive:


Now, I looked that over pretty well, then I went online to look up how Allah is written in Arabic. To me it looked nothing like the bottom of that shoe nor any part of the bottom of the show. Here it is, supposedly in Arabic:



Then I figured that Allah may appear differently in other languages and did a search to see if Allah in another language looked like the bottom of Nike's shoes. Once again, to me, the word Allah, written in several languages, did not look even faintly similar to the bottom of those shoes. Take a look for yourself and you tell me - do you see the resemblance? 


This whole brouhaha seems very much like what happens when a leftist here claims something is abhorrently offensive or racist or misogynistic or homophobic but has absolutely no hard cold evidence to back it up; yet other leftists climb aboard and the whole thing spirals out of control for a week or three with them bashing whomever they found to be offensive and often getting companies or individuals to apologize over nothing. Then as suddenly as it sprang from their discontented little minds, it is forgotten and a new anti-anything not leftist (or anti-anything not Muslim, depending on who is found to be offensive on any given day) it is started up all over again in the same manner as before but with a new target. 

My bet is Nike will capitulate, apologize and give money to these Islamic whiners, or to their cause, just to appease them and make them shut up. What a shame. I think, what they should be doing is telling them to get a life and grow and Nike should just keep using a logo as they see fit.

Opening Soon - Or Maybe Not So Soon

A newly built Travelodge, not yet open for business, was ravaged by the driver of a "mini digger" earlier this week in Liverpool. The reason, he said he had been shorted 600 pounds in pay. He reportedly was said to have carried out his rampage of driving into the building and smashing things for 20-30 minutes before the police showed up and almost injured at least one co-worker while doing so. More at the source. I love this quote from the article, the understatement of the month, maybe the year: "Wow. Don't think Travelodge is 'opening soon' now." 




Damn that guy was pissed off; he must have been hard up for money because of one heck of an expensive habit or one hell of an expensive woman in his life!

The Selective Legalization of Marijuana By The States


The politicians in my local village are taking it upon themselves to regulate where marijuana, for recreational purposes, may be sold and where it may not be sold. They claim they are doing so in anticipation of NY state legalizing it for such use. Thus it has been proposed that vendors will only be able to sell it a certain distance from houses of worship, schools and the like. They have determined that it should be sold from stores within the village’s industrial zone (made in the USA is bound to suffer due to that one) do not want it to get into the hands of kiddies, So, someone setting up shop will have to assure that the place of business will have to be at least 500 from any school. (More at the source.) Such a law or regulation ought to work as well as the federal law making it illegal to carry firearms within 1,000 feet of a school zone – look at how many lives that one has saved.

If marijuana was actually to be legalized it would be okay by me; let’s face it prohibition does not work. The thing is though, even if NY state passes legislation into law permitting the recreational use of it, it will still be illegal – there are federal laws making it such. Now comes the tricky part – NY will undoubtedly enforce federal laws making marijuana possession and use illegal as they see fit to fit their political agenda. With that sad, you can safely bet that even if legalized in this state, guns owners will be prosecuted or at the very least will have their guns seized and license revoked should they be caught or admit to use of marijuana within NY. After all, it is part of federal law/regulation that does not allow for a person to legally own transfer and or own firearms if they use illegal drugs. “Oh wait, but marijuana is legal in my state” you say. Yes but as I just said still illegal under federal law and NY, being a gun-control leftist Utopia, definitely will enforce those laws and relative regulations unlike the way they totally violate federal laws and regulations relative to illegal immigration and/or likely will violate federal law and regulation relative to the possession and use of marijuana should they pass legislation legalizing it under state law.

God forbid that a gun owner would smoke marijuana – he might go on a killing rampage. So, NY will likely still consider it illegal for someone to own firearms if he or she smokes or even possesses marijuana. Then again, what about drivers, doctors, nurses, law enforcement officers, crossing guards, judges, district attorneys, politicians, builders, electricians, barbers (those razors are sharp), teachers and anyone else – won’t it be potentially very dangerous allowing them to use it too? Under NY law, it likely will not be illegal for most of those folks or will be ignored even if illegal (by way of selective enforcement), except maybe in the case of law enforcement officers.

The federal government could stop all this immediately if those in it wanted to put an end to it. All they would have to do is collect the tax on marijuana that has been on the books for years. Taxation is how the federal government was able to regulate narcotics and other drugs, by way of the Harrison Act, in the first place and yes it was the progressives who came up with that tax. Francis Burton Harrison was a New Yorker, a congressman and, of course, a Democrat. Getting back to the tax on marijuana, I do not recall the tax rate per ounce but I do remember it is astronomically high. The feds could rake in a lot of dough allowing the states to legalize it even if the federal government legalized it but still regulated it. Not that I am much for over-taxation by any government but he feds potentially could rein in states like NY by enforcement of such a tax or they could reduce the tax for states that continue to cooperate with the feds on such things as illegal immigration. Yet, that is unlikely to happen and the states will just legislate laws making it selectively legal as they deem fit while selectively enforcing federal laws and regulations making it a no-no for firearms owner. You can bet on it.

My personal thoughts are that neither the state nor federal governments should have anything to say about a weed someone wants to grow and possess to get high except maybe with regard to operating motor vehicles or carrying out critical job functions and endangering the lives of others while under the influence. Owning a car or having a certain job or owning a firearm should have nothing to do with it so long as you are not endangering anyone while using it.

Upon Reconsideration..

...of President Trump having cancelled Nancy Pelosi's flight last week, I have come up with a question:

Would it not have been better for him to have allowed her to take her outbound trip and then to have cancelled the return flight?

Imagine the huge amount of exploding libturd heads there would have been across America had he done that!

The Gun Buyback I Would Have Attended...

...if held near to my home would have been the one that offered $500 for any working firearm! Yeah, you read that right. Thing was, I would have had to camp out to hold an early spot on the line because the arsehats who ran it ran out of money. A lot more here at the source Lagniappe's Lair.

Man, I can think of at least four guns I own that I would have gladly sold for that much. Heck, I would have happily split the cash with whomever waited on line with me and still would have made out like a very successful bandit.

Pretty Cold Outside Right Now...

...at 4 degrees Fahrenheit in my neck of the woods concrete jungle semi-suburbia. Not as cold as it sometimes feels inside the home but this too shall pass, pretty quickly too, supposed to be in the thirties tomorrow and 40s the next day.

I do need to go out later and even thought it has been forecast that today will hit a balmy 15 degrees, you can safely bet I will be dressed for it and that I will have my car up and running for at least 15 to 20 minutes before I even think of driving it.

Stay warm my friends,

Some Fine Shooting Down Houston Way

Whatever firearm it was that a Houston homeowner was using to defend himself from 4 thugs, who apparently were invading his home, he did some mighty fine shooting with it (of course the homeowner could have been a she). One of the alleged home invaders was shot and wounded and the other three were shot and died. More at the source.

Me thinks if there was more instant karma type justice of this sort, home invasions and many other violent crimes would be reduced markedly. Enough of it and some criminals might decide to get a real job to make an honest living.

More NY State Gun Control Insanity

NY State must be vying with CA to see which state can come up with the most tyrannically preposterous violations of the RKBA as each state keeps pumping out one oppressive law after the other relative to the RKBA. Take for example this newly proposed law in NY which could be interpreted to mean (and probably was meant to mean) that no one who owns a registered assault weapon in NY can buy more than 20 rounds of ammo for it in a 120 day period. Of course, the way it was written, one easily might interpret that to also mean you could buy 20 rounds per day for it for each of 120 days. Why 20 rounds, well, assault weapons in NY are limited to use only 10 round mags since higher capacity mags are banned. Read the proposed law, you will understand what I mean:
