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

Happy Birthday to Me, Happy Birthday to Me.

I just got in my birthday present to myself. A thousand prepped and primed .223 cases from Top Brass. These are Lake City headstamped, cleaned, resized, trimmed, and primed with Winchester Small Rifle primers. All I've got to do is dump a powder charge in and seat a bullet. I've got enough WCC-846 pulldown powder (from Jeff Bartlett) left to load a thousand cases already. Now I've got to order a thousand Hornady 75 grain BTHP Match bullets from Sinclair. That'll be next month, though.

I can build a sub-MOA load good for 600 yards for about $0.20 per round, or I can go to Ammoman and pay the same price for stuff that won't hold 2 MOA, and isn't really any good past 300 meters.

Or I cay pay $0.36 a round for Black Hills ammo no better than my handloads.

And that, ladies and gentlemen, is why I handload.

Edited to add:

And this is what my pet load is capable of out of my AR-15 at 100 yards if I do my part:
