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

33 Days 'till the Rendezvous

The sixth annual Gun Blogger Rendezvous is only a month away, and there's even more stuff to win this year.  In addition to the Ruger Blackhawk that Bea is donating, Ruger is also donating another firearm to be determined,  Glock has donated a certificate for any standard Glock pistol, MKS Supply will probably be donating another Hi Point Carbine (they've donated a firearm to the Rendezvous every year since its inception), and I have been informed by email that Weatherby is donating a PA-08 pump-action shotgun.  That's at least four and possibly five firearms, and more may be coming.

But not only firearms will be given away in Saturday's raffle.  Leupold is donating one of their VX-R Patrol scopes and a couple of game trail cameras, Pro-Ears is donating one of their electronic ear muffs, Woolrich is donating about a thousand dollars worth of their tactical clothing to one lucky winner, and there will be the usual other goodies like AR-15 magazines, range bags (Brownell's makes a damned fine range bag), t-shirts (I'm bringing two Kalashnikitty shirts donated by the maker and one S&B "bullet" vacuum-packed shirt I got at Bulletfest 2011), cleaning supplies, lubricants, and more!

In addition, you can hob-nob  with (and shoot beside) celebrities like Alan Gura, Smith & Wesson sponsored shooter Molly Smith, and possibly stars from the first season of Top Shot.

And remember, it's all for a good cause:  Project VALOUR-IT.  Here's the founder, Maj. Chuck Zeigenfuss talking about how Project VALOUR-IT came about:

Chuck has attended two Rendezvous, but won't be able to make this year's since he is currently stationed in Hawaii.

We'll be shooting Friday, Saturday and Sunday again this year.  Friday will be "shoot what ya brung," Saturday will be Steel Challenge, sponsored in part by Sig (which ought to be very interesting!)  Sunday once again will be Cowboy Fast Draw.  Here are some videos from previous Rendezvous:

You don't have to be a blogger, readers are more than welcome!  So scrape your pennies together, make your reservations and come enjoy a great weekend with a great bunch of people.  Gun Blogger Rendezvous VI is coming!
