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

Brick & Mortar FAIL

Brick & Mortar FAIL

I received a gift card for the local Caveman's Warehouse for Christmas, so I went in to see what I could pick up. The barrel for my T/C Encore came today, so I thought I'd maybe get some .260 Remington brass, perhaps some loaded ammo for a baseline comparison, maybe a pound of powder.

I wish I'd brought a camera.

The shelves are empty. Well, not completely, but I think there's about six pounds of powder, total (what's left is shotgun powder), about 10% of the normal stock of bullets (what's left is premium hunting bullets), about 5% of the normal stock of brass (.204 Ruger, anyone?), and it appears that Caveman's doesn't stock .260 Remington loaded ammunition of any flavor to begin with.

The firearm section has a wall of pegs on which hang the majority of the handguns they have for sale, and there are usually a dozen or so in the glass display cases.

About half of the pegs are bare, and there's two (2) revolvers in the display cases.

I asked one of the sales guys about when they might be restocking. He didn't know. They get whatever's on the truck when it arrives. He asked if I was familiar with MidwayUSA.

Hell, I'm on a first-name basis with Larry Potterfield. Maybe next year I'll have to insist that I be given Midway gift certificates.

Tomorrow Caveman's is having a big sale.

I wonder what the hell they think they're gonna sell? Well, shotguns. They've got a lot of shotguns left.
