Have You Given Any Thought To What You Will Do...

 ...once the demonkrats & RINOs legislate whatever anti-gun laws they have in store for us and which Biden is surelygoing to sign and enforce? 

I have given it some thought but am not certain how much I want to write about my thoughts on that subject here for the public eye (and for government stooges) to see. Yet, I will say this: I will be ridding myself of many guns, each and every type that I can imagine the current goons would try to ban & seize. So, I will get rid of any AR-15s, AK-47s, semi-auto centerfire rifles and semi-auto rimfire rifles that I may have. I will also only keep ammo that is likely not to be banned or restricted. I am thinking of dumping whatever small amount of 5.56x45mm M855 that I have currently. I mean, why bother with it when as we all know - all I need to protect myself is a double barreled shotgun and two rounds of #9 shot. Shoot one in the air to scare away the bogeymen and if that does not work; well then I suppose - just eat the other one from the muzzle. I am going to be a good little commie and lover of overly restrictive politicians and petty bureaucrats.

I had been thinking of burying a few semi-automatic centerfire rifles but then I thought - why bother! I mean, after all, the demonkrats will assure we are all going to live peacefully and happily in the Utopia that they have been promising us - right! Guys and gals who used to think like me will be even luckier than most - we will get to attend summer camps (or spring, fall & winter camps) all of the same ilk. They will teach us how to throw off any sense of Americanism we may hold dearly and to disregard the Constitution and our rights such as the ones to keep & bear arms and of self-defense, to hate Donald Trump and to adore socialism and communism and what could be better than that! Who knows, it could get better - they may send us on a one way trip to Chicago with a $20.00 bill pinned to our lapels and any one of us could become the next shooting victim in that berg to somehow help end all that is evil.

When it comes down to getting serious - and mind you all of this here is serious - maybe we all should think of what we will need to do once the next few pieces of anti-gun legislation will have the effect of turning us into complying sheep or into heinous (in the eyes of the leftists) felons should any of us (not me) decide not to comply. Think about what you do now and how it might come back to bite you in the arse, such as: blogging about guns or politics, reading & maybe even commenting on a blog like mine, admitting you are mostly conservative or a Libertarian, owning firearms, owning ammo, buying ammo or guns,  going to a shooting range where they ID you and sign you in, signing into a gun forum, browsing a gun forum or other firearms related sites, driving around in your car with an NRA, SAF or other firearms related bumper stickers on your car, going onto to a site like Facebook and writing about guns, posting pictures of you and guns on a site like Instagram, obtaining or already having a license to carry, having a dealer's FFL, having a C&R FFL, registering for & using the features (including selling and purchasing firearms) on a site like, keeping an ammo inventory on paper or on your computer, same for a firearms inventory, saving your inventories to the cloud, sending emails about guns, having firearms insurance (especially if you had to itemize which firearms are covered), browsing sites for info on how to store firearms underground, buying underground storage tubes for firearms, buying long term protective coatings for firearms, talking to family members, friends, neighbors, coworkers and other associates about your firearms and on and on. The government can track down info on all of those things if they are looking to nail you. Believe me on that, I was a federal agent for many years. Are the feds perfect at doing so - nope, far from it but I am telling you that you have been leaving trails if you have done more than 3 or 4 of the above, trails that sooner or later someone can follow right to you and your guns.

Prepare yourselves for it. For what? For being investigated by overzealous, Constitution disregarding, law enforcement who are trying to seize your firearms and ammo once such anti-gun laws are passed and signed into law. I am not going to tell you what to do - you can give up your guns like a good little commie (like I will be) when the government demands them for all I care. I am just saying be ready for it because it is coming. Of that I have absolutely no doubt.

All the best,

Buy Ammo Or Be That Guy Or That Gal

I am of the opinion, with the batch of scum-suckers currently in charge in DC and all of the civil unrest and violence in leftist strongholds (yes it is still ongoing) that one should buy all the ammo one anticipates needing for the Great Zombie Apocalypse and should buy it regardless of price if one does not have a sufficient amount now.


Don't let the guy/gal wearing this shirt be you:

Of course, if you'd like to be that guy or that gal who wears it because it fits (the sentiment more so than the shirt) then wear it. You can get one at this link:

That Corned Beef...

 ... that has been sitting in my refrigerator and should have been cooked for St Patrick's Day is finally being cooked tonight. I've got to say it smells absolutely divine. No cabbage in with mine though, instead I just tossed in three large parsnips cut up and six white turnips also cut up. Cabbage is okay but these vegetables are better. I'll enjoy the corned beef with them but most of all I will enjoy the corned beef on a couple slices of Jewish rye bread with some horseradish mustard and a nice beer. I am not much for Irish beers so I think I'll go with a Spaten or three. That's going to be some good eats.

All the best,

Two Times Better Than The One In My Last Post...

 ...because this one shows two Marlin lever action rifles, a matched pair, going as a single lot:

I like those better than the one I posted about in the post immediately prior to this one. Found out that the other one, the one marked New York, may not be a factory original but an aftermarket or Limited Edition for a club type gun (like those often advertised in The American Rifleman) with not nearly as much value as I may have expected. Then again, maybe it is valuable but I can find nothing on that one anywhere. 

These two, on the other hand, are a part if a well documented limited edition put out by Marlin. Want to say wow, take a look at them at the above link. Two beauties by master engravers.

All the best,

Marlin 1895 - New York Limited Edition 1 of 10

Being a refugee from NY, my interest in this rifle, up for auction, was immediately piqued when I saw photos of it. The irony of a rifle that has the engraving "A Tribute To Freedom" on its barrel and the state name "New York" elsewhere on the rifle is intense. I'd love to own it if for no other reason than as a fuck you to New York's current anti-gun politics. That's the same reason I love my Henry Repeating Arms lever action rifle in 22 Mag - it's stamped Made In Brooklyn! As for this rifle, being it is 1 of 10 also gives it great appeal.

See it here:

My guess is that this one will go for over 3K - maybe as much as 5K; it is one nice rifle. Who knows, maybe I will hit the lotto before the 20th and will be able to afford the winning bid but otherwise I am afraid any bid I place will be swiftly outbid. 

I have not been able to find anything when it comes to info on this one. So, if anyone has or knows of any info on this particular model or its value, please can you direct me to it? Not that I expect anyone from a state other than NY to have much interest in a gun with New York engraved on it but I had to ask just in case someone does have knowledge of it. Thanks.

All the best,

Francis & Co. on the Winchester Model 12 Repeating Shotgun (contains brief history, specs of different variations, and a serialized production date list), this I think is a keeper; a Ruger poster; four (4) M16/M16A1 rifle maintenance cards, GTA 21-1-3 June 1970; one (1) Operator’s Manual, Pistol, Semiautomatic, 9mm, M9 dated 28 March 1989 and a small booklet called “Silvaloy A Complete Guide To Silver Brazing And Selective Fluxing For Low Temperature Silvaloy Brazing…”. There were also a few other things like gun safety pamphlets, Big Game recovery Guides; a small H&M Tool Co. catalogue for headspace gauges and chambering reamers; and a small advertising catalogue from Assault Systems containing a dealers price sheet with effective date of 1/1/85.

I do not recall what I spent on the BAR magazine but it was a good price, less than half retail as I recall. The manuals cost me about $110.00 with shipping. Me thinks these were some wise investments of a small scale nature - some to keep and some to sell sooner or later. Of course, they could be a good excuse to buy every one of those guns on that list which I do not already own. After all doesn't everyone need the gun(s) for which they have the magazine and or manual(s)!

All the best,
Glenn B
