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

Nothing Like a Little Wretched Excess

I finally got around to downloading the (few) pictures I took at last week's shoot at the Casa Grande public range. Here's the guns I took:
From the top (though you can barely see the pistols):
XP-100, Kimber Classic, AR-15, Enfield No. 5 Mk I Jungle Carbine, Mossberg 590, and my 1917 Enfield.

This is what was on the bench next to me:
In case you don't recognize it, that's an 18" barrelled single-shot .50BMG rifle.

With a suppressor.

Thank Jebus.

It's actually pretty damned quiet for what it is. It's maybe as loud as my .45. But it kicks like a freaking mule.

If he'd removed the can and put the muzzle brake on it, all my stuff would have been blown off my bench.

Here's a shot looking downrange.
The far berm is (by laser rangefinder) 285 yards. The mountain makes a quite effective backstop.

This shot is from about 100 yards downrange back towards the shooting positions.
About 50 people or so showed for this one, but the weather was excellent and we all had a good time. What I didn't know was that one of the Class III dealers had brought an FN P90 and was letting people shoot it. I missed out. Bummer!

Maybe at the next shoot...

Edited to add: This is a picture taken by another attendee of someone shooting the P90:
(Envy, envy, envy....)
