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

B.A.G. Day 2011

Today, April 15, is Buy A Gun Day, a tradition going back at least eight years or so.

Here's mine:

If you read this blog much, you'll note that it looks an awful lot like my .38 Super Witness.  That's because it is my .38 Super Witness - mostly.  I bought a .40 S&W conversion kit for it, plus six spare magazines (for a total of seven).  The conversion kit I bought direct from European American Armory.  The magazines I bought from U.S. Citizen.  I also bought 1,000 pieces of once-fired brass and 1,000 Berry's 180 grain HP plated bullets.  I thought about buying a 10mm conversion, but the cost of brass decided it for me.  .40 S&W is ubiquitous and cheap.  10mm, not so much.  Everything's here but the bullets.  I may have to break down and buy some factory fodder for a test this weekend.

It looks like the .40 will be MUCH less picky about what it eats than the Super.
