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

BAG Day, 2005 - I Jumped the Gun a Little. to speak. I put off doing my taxes a bit longer than normal, and because of a little complexity I had them done professionally rather than doing it myself this year. So today we went to the accountant and ran all the numbers.

I contributed a bit more to the non-interest-bearing payroll savings plan than I had expected. The refunds, both state and federal, will be substantial.

So, with my wife's blessing I went out and bought my BAG Day gun. It's not for my wife. Really. I passed on the beautiful S&W model 25 Mountain Gun in .45LC ($699), and instead went for a 3" S&W .357 Model 60, used, with adjustable sights and the green Hi-Vis fiberoptic front sight, complete with Hogue monogrip. But it's not hers. She doesn't want one.

But when I'm gone on a business trip, this little beauty, filled with five Federal 125 grain .38 Nyclads, will be in the quick-access safe for her.

Edited to add: By request, also using my crappy little camera, a picture of said Model 60:
