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

I Drank the Kool-Aid (Bumped)

Happy birthday to me. (And this is my BAG Day gun, since I bought it once I knew we were getting a substantial tax return.)

I just picked up my present to myself, a Smith & Wesson M&P9. I looked at both the full-sized and the compact, but my hands are big enough that the compact just didn't fit right. I traded in a Ruger GP-100 on it, so it only set me back $165 plus tax. Now I need an Apex trigger, more magazines, magazine pouches and a concealment holster. Finally, I guess I'm going to have to get a 9mm caliber change kit for my Square-Deal B so I can reload for 9mm.

Only $165. Yeah. Right.

Well, at least I'm with all the other kool kids who have drunk the M&P Kool-Aid.

UPDATE:  Fresh out of the box I used the new M&P to win Minor class at my bowling pin match out of a field of seven shooters, and I think I would have won the overall match if I hadn't run out of ammo.  (I brought 84 rounds, but I needed about 90.)  All 84 rounds (Winchester 124 grain NATO +P FMJ) ran flawlessly, with no failures of any kind, and I even managed to clean at least one table with five shots.  It hits where it's pointed.  I haven't been a fan of tactical Tupperware, but this thing is impressive.

And Robb Allen has the graphic I was looking for to top this post.

UPDATE: Now I've got six magazines, 1,000 pieces of brass and a bunch of projectiles to load, and I need to order the Apex parts.
