Liberty is an inherently offensive lifestyle. Living in a free society guarantees that each one of us will see our most cherished principles and beliefs questioned and in some cases mocked. That psychic discomfort is the price we pay for basic civic peace. It's worth it. It's a pragmatic principle. Defend everyone else's rights, because if you don't there is no one to defend yours. -- MaxedOutMama

I don't just want gun rights... I want individual liberty, a culture of self-reliance....I want the whole bloody thing. -- Kim du Toit

The most glaring example of the cognitive dissonance on the left is the concept that human beings are inherently good, yet at the same time cannot be trusted with any kind of weapon, unless the magic fairy dust of government authority gets sprinkled upon them.-- Moshe Ben-David

The cult of the left believes that it is engaged in a great apocalyptic battle with corporations and industrialists for the ownership of the unthinking masses. Its acolytes see themselves as the individuals who have been "liberated" to think for themselves. They make choices. You however are just a member of the unthinking masses. You are not really a person, but only respond to the agendas of your corporate overlords. If you eat too much, it's because corporations make you eat. If you kill, it's because corporations encourage you to buy guns. You are not an individual. You are a social problem. -- Sultan Knish

All politics in this country now is just dress rehearsal for civil war. -- Billy Beck

Back from the Range

Man, I'm beat. I got up at 4:00AM this morning, partly because the better-half decided that this would be a good weekend to have a yard sale, and I had to move my truck out of the driveway so she could set up. I didn't leave until about a quarter after six, since I had to help, but I got to the range about 7:15 and Exurban Kevin was right behind me. My new cart was one of the best purchases I've made recently. It really helped in getting all of the stuff from my truck to the shooting benches and then downrange and back again.

A total of about twelve people showed up, mostly from, but besides us the range was PACKED. One group showed up with some full-auto fun and a single-shot .50BMG, about half of the rest of the crowd had EBRs of one flavor or another. My steel took quite a beating. I managed to break a weld on the one I hung up at 100 yards, but the other weld held so we kept shooting at it. Now my ammo stocks are low again and I need to do some serious reloading. Thankfully the component drought has ended and I have a pretty good supply on hand so that I can.

Thanks again to Exurban Kevin for the idea, and we'll have to do this again next year. (Pictures to follow - though not many, I was busy shooting - when I get a chance to download them.)
