The Sad Death of Hero John Hurley

John Hurley was in a store when he heard several gunshots outside. A police officer had just been fatally wounded by a gunman. He rushed outside, told innocents to take cover and engaged the shooter. He was eventually gunned down but it is unknown whether or not it was the bad guy or a responding police officer who killed him (or I imagine he could have accidentally shot himself). The video, at the below link, tells a much better account of what is known so far than the written article at the same link. More at the source: I wish he had not wound up being a victim and I also hope with all my heart it was not a cop who killed him!
What a shame this happened to a man who did the absolute right thing. RIP John Hurley - my condolences to his family, loved ones & friends.
Be careful out there is you ever do the right thing to help out in such a situation.

When President Trump Was In Office, I Feared...

 ...on an almost daily basis, that I would awaken in the morning to learn that he had been assassinated. I really expected not so much that it would happen but that some far left wing nut would at the very least try to kill him. It gave me the creeps every night for at least the last year or so of his presidency. I guess it was driven by the intense hatred of those on the left for him and for anything he did for America. 
Today, I have no to little fear that some far right wing nut will try to kill President Biden; although one never knows. What I do have now, is an anticipation that I will awaken one morning, go to the news online or turn on my radio, to learn that Biden has met his end - in whatever way his end comes about be it assassination, accidental death or natural causes - and that I will smile when I learn of it. 
To tell the truth, I think for one of the few times in my life, the death of a political figure - his death in particular - would actually make me happy. Why is that? Well, I think he is bad for America - very, very, very bad - and that he is well on his way to destroying our great nation, our Constitution and our way of life while looking to create a tyranny bent on ruling by way of communist and socialist ideals. To me, it seems that just about everything he has done to date since he became president proves it. 
Despite the fact that his demise might make me smile a happy smile, I do not actually wish anything bad upon him but if it comes it comes. I hope you can understand what I mean: I do not wish harm upon the man but sincerely wish that the severe harm I believe he evidently is causing to our nation and way of life would end immediately and if that happened and I think it would make me a happy man however it was brought about. Note, I am definitely not advocating that anyone go out and try to off him or harm him - and I for one am most certainly not about to attempt something like that. I am just saying how I think it would make me feel if I found out tomorrow that he had dropped dead tonight because that is about the only way I can imagine him being removed from office and as a threat to our country anytime soon. Of course he might also be declared mentally incompetent but it would likely take a stroke or some other fate almost as bad as death, if not worse, to accomplish that.
What it comes down to though is this: As much as I hate the fact and wish it was not so - he is my and our president. I believe that most of those who are republican, conservative, libertarian or even hard core right wingers agree with me on this by now - as much as they hate the fact just as I do that he is in the oval office - we understand and accept he is our president. Now think about this: how many democrats, liberals, socialists, communists or other leftist radicals do you know who believed that about President Trump - that he was their president at anytime during his four years in office. They hated him and tried to destroy him and the extremely good changes he brought about for our people and our country and one of their most prominent sayings about him was: he's not my president. Most did not even bother to say: 'He's not our president',  The truth is liberals are for the great part so self centered that just about everything they do or say or believe is based on the principle of 'me myself & I' as opposed to it being based upon 'we, our & us' as it should be in a unified America!

Had The High Bids...

 ...on these today:
Remington R-15 VTR Predator in 223, listed "as new".

Remington 870 12 gauge. Judging by the lack of wear showing on the mag tube, I am guessing it has never been fired or only fired very few times.

Colt Lord Deringer boxed set of two 22 Short derringers.

A guy could have some fun with these.
All the best,

Texas - I Ain't In NY Any Longer...

 ...and some of the best proof of that are gun friendly laws that were passed during the 2021 legislature. Take for instance House Bill 1927 which allows for license free carry of a handgun by law abiding citizens over the age of 21 or House Bill 1500 that "...establishes that firearm and ammunition manufacturers, distributors, wholesalers, suppliers and retailers are essential businesses that shall not be prohibited by state or local officials from operating during a declared disaster or emergency". Several more new gun friendly laws, in Texas, can be seen at the source:
Dang, the politics here are much more to my liking than those in Cuomoistan! This may not be the most gun friendly state but as I indicated it sure ain't NY!
Edited To Add: House Bill 1927 was signed into law today by Texas Governor Abbott; it goes into effect September 1, 2021! (Source.)

Imagine The Outcome Had Putin Stood Up...

 ...pulled out a 9mm Makarov pistol and shot Biden in his head killing him instantly during their meeting today. Really think about what would have been the outcome. Would it result in WWIII? I think that a distinct possibility. If you agree on that, how then do you think that would go? 
Well, to answer that, you'd have to imagine Kamala Harris becoming the Commander In Chief of the armed forces of the United States of America and also imagine Nancy Pelosi as becoming our vice president! Think about those two being in charge of our nation during time of war caused by such a defiant and terrible act of forceful aggression by the Russians (who would likely be allied with the Red Chinese). Would we stand a chance of winning such a war? Would we surrender almost immediately after only a few skirmishes? Or would we profusely apologize for everything we have ever done with regard to our foreign policy with Russia and then offer the Russians reparations before even giving our enemies the chance to offer terms of surrender?
Sure, my scenario of Putin offing Biden sounds far fetched but I am willing to bet should it have happened or an assassination of Biden ever happen, we would be in for an awful lot of trouble with the current crop of nitwits moving up in the chain of command. Heck, we are already in trouble with those screwballs in charge now!

A Paintball Drive-By = A Very Bad Idea

A masked 10 year old Florida boy was shot when he and his father donned ski masks and his father agreed to take him on a drive-by paintball shoot. Wound up they shot at a crowd in a yard and the property owner fired back with real bullets thinking he and his family & friends were being attacked and fired on with real firearms. 
Somehow the kid also fell out of the father's vehicle and was run over by it. Lucky kid as they say he will recover, unlucky him though as well since his father may spend some time in jail. More at the source. It is really hard to believe that some parents are that frigging stupid!

77 Years Ago Today - June 6, 1944 D-Day - Too Many Brave Men Were Maimed or Died But...

 ...their sacrifices, and those of they who survived to fight on, paved the way to free the world from a tyranny the likes of which had not been known until Adolf Hitler and Nazi Germany, along with the other AXIS Powers, unleashed a reign of terror on the world like none before. It all commenced with savage internal attacks within Germany against those whom Hitler and the Nazis called the untermenschen - those he thought were inferior to his so called master race - the Jews, Catholics who opposed him, invalids, mentally ill patients, dissidents, criminals, Slavic peoples and the Romani. (It truly is somewhat similar to how leftists view conservative or libertarian Caucasians today within the USA.) Then, with the invasion of Poland on 1 September 1939, WWII commenced and Hitler's forces, in short time, had conquered most of the countries of mainland Europe and most of Northern Africa; that all while the Japan expanded it's territory by brutally conquering parts of China and many other Asian nations on the continent as well as many island countries within the Pacific Theater. That the Japanese were a brutal tyrannical empire is evidenced by The Rape of Nanking (Nanjing) among many other atrocities committed by them during WWII.
WWII was a long and brutal war, both in Europe and Asia. As we all should know, the Allied forces eventually won. 
In Europe, Germany surrendered on May 8, 1945. Many a hard battle was fought and many limbs and lives lost from 1939 through 1945 - but some of the most, if not the most, intense fighting of the whole war took place during the battles that spearheaded all those others. Of course, I am talking about the landings of Allied troops, on the shores of Normandy in Northern France on June 6th 1944 - D-Day, and the battles that followed. D-Day (aka: the Invasion of Normandy) was the largest naval & amphibious invasion in history. The D-Day invasion and the battles that followed to secure Northern France, and thus assure an Allied foothold on northern continental Europe, were devastating and Allied losses were high. The cemeteries of Northern France are overflowing with the bodies of allied troops who landed and died on D-Day, Americans counting for most of them.

Remember all of them today no matter the allied country for whom they fought because they fought for the freedom of all people of the world. Think of them, read about them in the links provided here and elsewhere, think of their sacrifices, think of their bravery, if so inclined say a prayer for them or honor them in some other way. Let us hope no one ever has to live through something like that again - not any of us on this earth. I am sad to say it though, I believe it will happen again all too soon. Tyranny has a way of rearing it's ugly head again and again but thankfully there are brave men and women who always seem ready to answer the call to defeat it.

If nothing else, take the time to watch and listen to President Ronald Reagan's speech on June 6, 1984 - the 40th anniversary of D-Day.

All the best,

Remember That Leftist Spoiled Bitch Greta T...

Well, here is the perfect response to her sissy fit whining episodes of indignance. Mind you, You have to sit through a bit of her blathering before the good part but it is worth the wait. 

I am all for saving the environment or at least for not destroying it but I also realize we need to use the earth's resources for every, and I do mean every, industry in which we engage (as for myself I use a lot of lead, copper, brass and chemicals used as propellants). So to little twats like her, I say fuck off - as does the gentleman in the video although he says it much nicer than I ever would say it to her.



That was truly an inspiring piece; hope you enjoyed it as much as I did so.

All the best,

Maybe Not Very Smart But She Has Bigger Balls...

 ...than most men I have known in my lifetime. In fact, I found it hard to believe it until I saw it but a woman actually ran to the defense of her dogs and pushed a mother bear, who was with her cubs, off of a backyard fence to protect the dogs. Watch it here:
More about the story here:
It really may not have been the smartest thing to have done but it sure was ballsy! She did do something smart though, she looked over her shoulder to reassess the situation as she scampered away holding one of her smaller dogs. Those dogs might have been dinner for the three bears had the woman not intervened; they owe their mama bear lots of thanks.

The Mongrel Skye & I...

 ...were out for a walk  couple of nights ago around the apartment complex. We were heading back to our apartment, when there was one definite gunshot followed by about five to six (or even seven) more in rapid succession. I'd guesstimate the shots were from not more than 50 to 75 yards away at most, thankfully none incoming. I'm pretty sure they were all pistol shots. I thought they came from the Southwest end of our apartment complex or from the gas station right across the street from there. 
When we got home, I looked out the back door over toward the gas and saw a few people standing they're looking toward our apartment complex. I made sure the doors were locked and I merely went to bed. The two other times that I heard shots fired here, I called the police and would have done so this time too except for their arrogant and nasty attitudes when I told them about what I had heard those two other times. I figure, I'll let someone else report things like this from now on and let them take the crap from the local police officers with their holier than thous attitudes. 
Man, things certainly have changed a lot since I retired almost 10 years ago and even monumentally more so from when I first got on the job back in 1979. The changes are not only in the attitude of the public toward the police but in the attitude you get from the police if you try to do the right thing by them. Then again, most police, from what I have witnessed, have always fostered the 'Us Against Them' attitude with the us being the police and the them being everyone else - even others in law enforcement who are not police officers, such as federal agents. 
Oh what a world!

All the best,
Glenn B
