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

Two Weeks to the Rendezvous!

There's still time to get signed up and make room reservations for Gun Blogger Rendezvous X.  Check out the site.  There's some good stuff to take home with this year.

The schedule has been sent out to attendees, and here's what's on tap:
Thursday, August 20:

2:45-5PM - Trip to the massive Scheel's Sports in Sparks. If you need any last-minute range gear or just want to check it out (worth the trip) a group will be leaving from the Silver Legacy. Upon our return we're having a group dinner at the El Dorado buffet. (No sponsor, attendees responsible for buffet cost.)

Friday, August 21:

8-9AM - Breakfast at the Silver Legacy Resort &Casino (Free, sponsored by
10AM-2PM - Range time at the Washoe County Shooting Facility. Shoot what you brought, and shoot what everybody else brought. This is where the Gardner Gun and various other toys, some suppressed, some full auto, will be available to shoot. The range has target frames and known-distance positions for them out to 300 yards. Steel swingers at various ranges out to 900 yards. I'm bringing my .300 Win Mag for this. Range fee is $8/person. Bring something to drink, and sunscreen is advised. You also need eye and ear protection.
6-8PM - Dinner at the Silver Legacy - (Free, sponsored by
8-Whenever - Mix-n-Mingle in the hospitality room.  Adult beverages and snacks (byob!).  This is the main reason I go to the Rendezvous, and I don't drink.  The range trips are just an extra added bonus.

Saturday, August 22:

8-9AM - Breakfast at the Silver Legacy Resort & Casino (Free, sponsored by
10AM-2PM - "Paper steel" shooting at the new indoor range at Reno Guns & Range.  $15/person.  Rimfire and centerfire handguns only.  Irons & optics.  Five white paper plates mounted on IPSC style target stands. One plate will be designated as the “Stop Plate” and it must be shot last. The other four plates may be shot in any order. Each shooter will shoot the stage multiple times, and the slowest time will be discarded. The remaining fastest times will be totaled, and added to the shooter’s overall score. Once each shooter has completed the stage, the targets will be moved to different positions, and will be shot again as “Stage 2.” Additional stages will be shot as time permits.  Each string will be shot from the "low ready" position.
5-6PM - Special Interest Arms' Richard Brengman will talk about his Gardner Gun and other toys, which you should have gotten to shoot on Friday.
6-6:15PM - Brief introduction to the organization we're sponsoring, Honored American Veterans Afield (HAVA).
6:15-7:15PM Pizza dinner, provided by the National Shooting Sports Foundation. Please don't drip pizza grease on the Gardner Gun!
