Sometimes It's Fun To Watch Idiots

Ballseye Remembers When...

 ...as a married adult, I could buy a brick of decent 22 LR ammo at under 2¢ per round; I got it less expensive than that in my adult years before marriage but cannot recall the price then.

To my amazement, I was at a gun show (of all places) in Yonkers NY or White Plains in the mid to late 1990s, NY when I found bricks of CCI Blazer 22 LR ammo for sale @ $9.00 per brick - making it .018¢ per round. At that time, prices had recently increased and bricks of 22 LR were going for at least $12.00 to $15.00 at similar shows. I think that was the first time I bought, let along had heard of, CCI Blazer ammo. I was impressed enough with it to buy more over the years. It went bang like 99.9% of the time with only rare failures to fire, was pretty accurate in most of my 22s, was inexpensive & plentiful and those attributes made up for the fact it was and remains one of the dirtiest 22 LR rounds I have ever fired.
Those days are long gone but 22 LR ammunition is still one of the best buys in the world of ammo purchases as you can find it widely available at, or a bit under, 6¢ per round and even can find it from several dealers at 5¢ per round.

All the best,

The Normalization of Pedophilia - It Can Be Stopped

I believe: that pedophiles - a group which has for years been silently infiltrating society and becoming a bit bolder as each year passes and who have been getting jobs as: medical practitioners, educators, clergy, politicians, home maintenance employment (plumbers, electricians, carpenters etc.), law enforcement, retailers and just about any other position you can think of where they come in fairly frequent contact with children - have become emboldened by the apparent acceptance of other weirdos by liberals/leftists/democrats on the whole. It is becoming evident that they now feel a certain amount of liberty to come out with actions that they believe will help to ease pedophilia into being, if not outright acceptable - then tolerable to other folks including those of the conservative ilk sooner or later. 
If you don't see that as happening, think of queer bashing (I am in no way making an endorsement of physical queer bashing just stating what I believe is factual). It for the most part is a thing of the long gone past both in its physical & philosophical forms, and those on the right mostly tolerate (to some fair extent) queers, lesbians, gays or whatever word salad they want to call themselves today.They used the oft used methods of the communists to get to where they are today, tolerated at least to a fair extent if not outight accepted by most people in the USA.
Slowly infusing their lifestyle into society seemingly is how communists and other leftists work to instill their belief systems into a society that they are obviously incapable of taking over by force (such as the USA). It ostensibly is no different for how pedophiles seem to be trying to find tolerance for what amounts to their disgusting, immoral and illegal perversions. So, now that the so called LGBTuvwyz and such are mostly tolerated and since the latest transgender self mutilation by proxy lifestyle insanity is also seemingly becoming acceptable to liberals (maybe even preferable to many of the left), I think the pedophiles see themselves as the next group to succeed in at least becoming tolerated if not actually legitimized under the law. In effect, they evidently push sexual instruction onto young children in schools. This is as their allies in the groups mentioned above give them their support and spew forth support forth what I can only see as truly mind boggling mentally ill behavior. That would be behaviors such as teaching children they can become another gender either mentally (through brainwashing in secret meetings at school or elsewhere) or physically (through surgery) and then have the audacity to put on female impersonator shows for school aged kids in the hopes that children will choose to have themselves surgically mutilated. To what end!
I think, what they hope for in the end is to be allowed to freely engage in sexual conduct with children without fear of reprisal and that right now they see the opportunity to be able to do so materializing soon because all this other, in my opinion, mentally ill behavior has been accepted by those I think are liberal psychos who freely support others like themselves in their quest to destroy conservatism and free will. The pedophiles also see that all too many on the right (and independents) do little to nothing to prevent it. Not only are they and their allies pushing to teach our children that this outrageous behavior is normal by continuously & openly inundating our children with it but now they in sum & substance are saying that children are not a parent's to bring up but essentially belong to the state. That would have been unfathomable 15 or 20 years ago except to extremists on the left but now it appears to be a widespread belief ever since that politician, who thankfully lost her bid to be president, said: 'children need a village to raise them' (or whatever words she used but that was the drift). Political hacks like her make me truly hope there is a hell and if I wind up therein, I hope to become her (and other leftists) eternal tormentor.

The shining light of hope, that our children will be saved from these evidently very mentally sick types, does exist though. It is in the form of boycotts right now that for the first time in a long time seemingly are being undertaken by millions of fed up Americans and also possibly by millions of others worldwide. They are having a very positive effect but we must keep them going ad infinitum for these companies that support these leftist ideals. The thing is - I think we need to boycott not only products from companies like Bud Lite, as I see it, but we should be boycotting all (as in each and every one) of the products of the entire corporate empire that owns Bud Lite. For me, that goes for other companies too such as: Nike, Kohl's,Target and any other companies or corporate entities that push any form of perversions of nature onto our children and or who also support the state becoming the caretakers of our children while at the same time destroying not only the rights of parents with respect to their children but are obliterating the whole idea of family structure as well while wanting to destroy our Constitutional rights (i.e.: gun control advocates, those who oppose free speech, those who support defunding law enforcement, supporters of over taxation, and so on) while being easy of criminals who commit heinous crimes of various natures. 
We can fight back with boycotts that will place a lot of pressure on these companies and will in the end cause them to cease these evident abusive policies by which they target our children, our families, parents and our Constitutional rights. We can do other things also such as: creating political pressure (it takes a few minutes to write a letter or a email - one of either can be copied and mailed to every one of your political representatives in only a few minutes more), take part in individual or group protests such as in schools at PTA & school board meetings, group protests outside of state capitals, marches through your local communities and so on, monetary donations made to politicians & groups that support parental rights and that oppose things like trans-gender brainwashing, voting for candidates who are solidly behind parental rights and who oppose this child targeting insanity. Sitting around doing nothing accomplishes nothing for us or our children and allows the leftists & perverts to advance their sick practices. Do something (anything legal and make sure to keep it legal) to support the cause of sanity in regard to our children, parents, families and rights because if you do nothing the pedophiles. other sickos & leftists will succeed in destroying the United States of America.

All the best,

On Memorial Day - Remember The Reason For It

Y'all have a nice enjoyable weekend. While sun bathing, grilling and boozing though, please remember to say at least one prayer for, or take some time to solemnly think about, those for whom we celebrate Memorial Day - those in our military service who lost their lives defending our Constitution, our nation and her people during war. Never forget their contribution to our nation, in fact to each of us, it was the ultimate sacrifice. 🇺🇸

One Man's Trash...

...can is another man's treasure nostalgia. I have been watching reruns of American Pickers and am up to Season 22 Episode 2. Mike & Jersey Jon were rummaging around in a 300 year old farm's barn when Mike comes across an old Galvanized steel trash can. He mentions it but does not buy it.
 I would have bought it. When I was a kid, and well into my twenties, I used to help take out the trash for my great-grandparents who owned three 6 family apartment houses. My great- grandparents had a live in helper, Franz Weber, who was like family. When they got a bunch of newer light weight cans, they kept one of the old ones. It was very much like if not exactly like the one Mik3jie finds in the barn. That older heavier trash can was a challenge for me to haul up the cellar stairs to put outside within the confines of the front fence & gate. It took a beating over the years but as it was much sturdier than the new ones, it outlasted some of them. 

The can on American pickers had me thinking of that ne and that single memory of that one trash can stirred up many other memories of my days as a kid , a teen and a young man all to do with those buildings, Franz and my great-grandparents. 

The saying is true: One man's trash can is another man's treasure - or in this case another man's nostalgia.

This Article MUST Be Wrong...

 ...because it could not possibly be right since Mayorkas and Biden claim the border is secure. So how could someone who is on a terror watch list cross it illegally (more at the source)! Yep, he got caught but he was in country and could have just as likely eluded captute. How many other enemies of the USA have crossed illegally and gotten away!
All the best,

The Last Time This Happened,...

 ...the this being one of my firearms auction packages being delayed by USPS, the result was the box mysteriously opened in transit and only the bayonets that were inside of it decided to and were able to make an escape. They just disappeared like magic. The shipment was insured but my son will never see those bayonets he had wanted.
This time around, yes another one has been delayed, the tracking info shows essentially the same as it did for the previous one. It was picked up by USPS in Geneva, NY, made it to a USPS facility in Rochester, NY and seemingly has fallen off the radar since arriving there. Tracking does not show it leaving Rochester yet says it is in transit - again same as last time. That previous parcel's tracking showed that way for days or maybe even a week or more and then miraculously the package was delivered to me light. It was minus the bayonets. This one contains only a shotgun and a revolver; so, if they somehow escape the confines of their cardboard prison, I guess I won't receive a thing as I doubt even USPS would deliver an empty box. 
I hope they actually still are in transit and not in some postal employees collection of stolen guns or worse yet that they have been sold to some dirtbag.

Time will tell and the wait will suck until I find out one way or the other.

All the best,

Is This The Most Important Thing At Fox News...

 ... the vocal cord condition of a country singer, at least as I write this post at 2:10 PM on May 9, 2023? Is it really an article about some country music singer, whom I have never heard about before today, having a problem with his vocal cords and having to lay off his concert tour for 6 weeks! So it seemed as I wrote this post. More at the source. Now, while that is entertainment news, and some folks may be interested in such news, does it truly rate being the top headline on a national news site when there is other much more important news for the nation? Really Fox News - is that the best you can do at finding a newsworthy item to place as your top headline at any given time!!!
Whatever happened to Fox News reporting on really important things (to all Americans as a whole) that concern our nation? Let's face it, as I was writing this, President Trump was reportedly convicted in a civil trial for civil battery (more at the source) and several news agencies reported on it in their headlines - not Fox News, at least not on their main online news page, as I continued to write this at 2:15 PM! So, a country crooner is more important than a former president being convicted in a civil trial! I do not comprehend Fox News' priorities in reporting.
Lately, besides Fox seemingly reporting on things that I think are more befitting a Hollywood rag, I have seen lots of what I think are horrendous grammatical and spelling errors at Fox that someone, like maybe an editor, should have caught before an article containing such errors went to print. Besides misspellings, they often include gender neutral pronouns - whom are they kissing up to? When they talk about one specific person and then start calling that person "they" or "them" it truly is ridiculous in my estimation.
As for spelling & grammatical errors, yea I know, I make plenty of mistakes in my blog posts but here is the deal: I am not a journalist by profession, I am not a professional writer who is receiving pay for what I write (in fact I get zero compensation except maybe self satisfaction and personal enjoyment), I do not have an editor who checks over my posts as an editor at Fox News should be checking the work of his underlings and yet I am willing to bet you'd find a higher rate of errors in Fox News reports than in my blog posts. 
Now, I may be wrong about the rate of errors in my stuff as compared to theirs but even if I am incorrect, why are the reports on Fox News.com strewn with errors? I do not recall that being the case a couple or few years back. The truth is, as it seems to me, that Fox News articles appear to be getting dumber and dumber in as much as to content that would better befit the pages of the super liberal Main Stream Media Mud Slinging Media and as far as an apparent lack of editing goes when it comes to the writing skills or lack of such skills among the journalists who write some of their pieces.

Ballseye Remembers When...

Halter tops like this one were worn by almost every gal I knew. That was way back in the 70s. If those gals wore em now, they'd have to be cut a lot lower.
On another note: I could come to like the ATF if they hired a slew of agents like this gal. She could interrogate me for days on end; well at least if I was a much younger man. Sadly, ATF agents (for the vast majority of them) will never be anywhere as pleasant to behold while standing in front of you while armed as she is such.
All the best,

Ballseye Remembers When...

 ...you could pic up a case of these at about $65.00 - 75.00 per rifle. Those pictured here are supposedly Hungarian M44 (Model 1944) carbines.

I bought one for myself in 1998, it was a whopping $80.00 including tax. It's the only Mosin Nagant I still own, bought from a guy named Ray at a gun show in NY state. I visited the show with my pal Dom P. and we each got one. As we were walking away, I turned to Dom and told him I was going back to Ray's table. I had decided I was going to buy another. When I got back to Ray I blurted out that it would be a gift for my wife. Ray, the dealer, immediately became paranoid and refused to sell it to me saying that if he did so it would be a straw purchase. Of course, it would not have been one because it would have been a gift to someone who could legally purchase one if she had wanted to do so (it took the ATF many years to get that straightened out among knucklehead dealers who thought otherwise). 
I recall they were so inexpensive that a guy from a gun forum in NY bought a case, refinished the wood somewhat, cannot recall if he put legs on it but do know he took off the lid covered, the guns inside the case with glass and his wife was happy with the new coffee table (imagine that). I also remember the feeling I got when I first realized they would have evolved from mere steel & wood into a small gold mine had I picked up a case or three. I still; get that same exact feeling today many years later - it feels like a good swift kick in the jewels!

Oh well, live and hopefully learn: The time and place to buy it is when you see it and he who hesitates on such a deal is a schmuck!  I've been there and I've been one of those in the case of these and some other firearms deals I should have picked up on. I should have known better too because of some advice I'd gotten from a Jewish butcher in Brooklyn who had fresh chickens on sale. His exact words were: "Such a deal - don't be a schmuck - buy two". Had I applied it to a couple of cases of M44s and held onto them until today, I'd be able to put a down payment on a car or buy more guns.

All the best,
