Obama was Born

OK, can we move on now??
I wish as much as anyone he was not a Citizen and we could remove him from office, but it is not to be. . . . It never was folks.  No one has ever said that his Mother was not a US Citizen, so he is a citizen.  DONE LETS MOVE ON!
What I don't get is why he finally released this info. . .  It looked like it would have been in his best interest to stay quiet and let the right go nuts over it.  The more noise folks made about it the more they looked like nuts, and the more independent voters they lost to the cause. . .  .  all good for Obama
So why release the Birth Certificate now?? What does he gain by doing it??  Was someone digging up stuff he didn't want found and he thought this would end it?
Who knows, but I think we still need to dig into all the other records he had sealed.  He is hiding something folks, if he has nothing to hide then why not let us all see the records right?  Isn't that what the left says every time they invade your life?  You got no worries if you didn't do anything wrong so you have nothing to hide right???
So what is he trying to hide??????

Gas Prices go UP

Isn't this interesting. .  . Now gas prices are back up where we were told that Bush McHitler pushed them to help his oil pals. . . . except Bush ain't in charge any more. . . So Obama must be in on it right??

Oh no.  The chosen one would never do that.  You see now the news folks are parroting his explanation that there are complex factors that are doing this and he is working to lower them.  These would be the same forces that were at work last time, but then it was Bushes fault. . . . The Media said so. . . .

I love how they change sides so quickly. . ..

I also love how this has nothing to do with the fact that they have devalued the dollar so badly that everything including gas is costing more.  And they have the balls to say there is no or little inflation.

It will be interesting to see where the Media go with this story as they try to save their chosen fool in the White House.  Obama has no clue what is going on (what else is new?) and or how to fix it.  He continues to try to tax and spend his way out of this hole, just digging us all in deeper.

But the Media is key.  They can see that this may sink his second term if they can't find a way to blame someone else.  I am sure there spin machines will be working overtime on trying to deflect this from the chosen one.  Going to be a fun ride to 2012. . . .

Hunting Classes

I have a shooting friend that keeps trying to get me into hunting. I am more of a target shooter and self defense but I can understand hunting. My brothers in law also hunt - well, use to anyway.

Almost went once until I found out they were heading out at 3AM. . . on the weekend. . . . Bit early for me.

Another drawback is in MA you need to take a class on Hunting Safety to get your permit, and at the time I had no idea where to take the class, or the money for it.

Looks like hunting has hit the Internet age. I know folks are trying to get new people into the shooting sports including hunting. And now you can even get class info and online classes for it. . . . Check it out at:

This is really cool. I think it is great to see them roll out online classes. If they had these back when my in laws were trying to talk me into it I may have tried it out.

Anyway I am all for any way to get more folks into any of the shooting sports and this looks like a great way to get the attention of the younger crowed.

Remember, the more folks we get into shooting - no matter which shooting sport, the safer our rights are.  So, if you need info or a class, give the link a click and good hunting!

150 Years Ago Today

It all started when Fort Sumpter was attacked. . . .
Just about four years later the country was one again. . . and aproximatly 625,000 Americans were dead. . .
It is just amazing to me how much has changed when you look back at it.  They were using muskets, railroads and just started with the telegraph.  No cars yet, you still had to ride a horse.
What is even more amazing is how much we have forgotten about our past, how far our country has slipped from it's roots and what was fought for. . . we may well be on our way to our next civil war as the welfare state goes up against the worker paying taxes. . . I only hope it is fought at the balot box and goes no further down that road. . . . .

How Tree Huggers are killing MA. . .

Back in 1996 they passed a law here in MA that got rid of all trapping in the state. . . . The tree huggers rejoiced at the win. . .

The state lost. Beavers and other animals that we use to hunt and trap here to keep them in check now ran wild and overpopulated. Damns caused streams to back up and flood land and basements.

And the Tree Huggers rejoiced. . .

Now we are starting to see a small bit of sanity return. .  .

Thanks to hunters and gun owners we are trying to get control of these animals again so they won't overpopulate and destroy land and homes.

You can read more about the bill on the GOAL site here

Lets hope this passes

Background check for Ammo?

I just got asked by a friend who owns a gun shop if I had heard anything on Obama looking to push for a background check just to buy ammo. .  . I had not.
So, have you?  Is this a new push for gun control by Obama to go with the new election kick off?
Has anyone heard of this?

Dry Fire

I finally got around to doing some of that dry fire practice I should have been doing for a while now.

One of the best ideas I have gotten (thanks Jay G) was to get a laser and use that to help out.  So I got a laser bore sight and I mount that in my double action Makarov and off I go. . . .

Been doing it for about two weeks now.  I practice a few times a week and I can already see the pay off with the laser not jumping around as much.

This has really worked out well for me.  I can change my grip a bit and see right away how it effects my shot.  I quickly could see how much the laser was jumping because my grip was too loose.  Where it use to jump 2 inches or so to the right when I fired I am now down to a half inch or so. 

My normal practice is to shoot 5, 10  or at the most 20 shots, then take a break so I don't tire my hand and finger too quickly.  After a break I do another set of shots.  This has worked well so far.  Now I need to get to the range and see how this translates to paper. . .  ..

A side effect of this is I am also finding I can watch the front sight and still see the laser better and better as I practice.

I have become a convert!  more dry fire time needed!
