Help!! Social Emergency!!

August 4th, 2014 1 comment

Hello, 911? I can’t play Candy Crush!!

Imagine, the horror of not being able to browse silly kitten pictures while waiting for the mailman to deliver your welfare check. (Well, as if the State of California had any money. heh.)

Surely, what any sane individual would do is call the authorities and get a gumshoe on the case fast!

The irony here? The local police PIO took to social media to post about it…

From WFSB (CBS):

An officer from Los Angeles County took to Twitter on Friday when Facebook users called for help to report that the social mediawebsite was down.

Sgt. Burton Brink, the public information officer in La Crescenta, CA, posted a Tweet reminding people about the reasons for calling them for help.

“#Facebook is not a Law Enforcement issue, please don’t call us about it being down, we don’t know when FB will be back up!” he wrote.

Users who tried to get on Facebook around noon EST were greeted with an apology.

“Sorry, something went wrong. We’re working on getting this fixed as soon as we can,” the site posted.

A message posted by a Facebook’s developer around noon said the site “is currently experiencing an issue that is affecting all API and web surfaces. Our engineers detected the issue quickly and are working to resolve it ASAP. We’ll update shortly.”

Facebook returned about an hour later.

The sad part here is that the article doesn’t specifically mention one person; it reads “users”, suggesting there was more than one call about. I also assume this is the case, as it prompted him to post in social media about it.

2nd Amendment Wins in Chicago

July 8th, 2014 No comments

Chicago has certainly been making some headlines lately!  The city is certainly no stranger to bad news, being a haven for crime and the local government there being an enemy to the 2nd Amendment.  This last week however, the city suffered some setbacks to it’s agenda and the good guys scored some victories.

A crazed gunman opened fire on a group of partygoers this past 4th of July, but ultimately was ultimately shot himself by a veteran and legal gun owner, with a concealed-carry weapon.  The veteran and a few of his friends were leaving a party last Friday when one of them noticed a cup of liquor sitting on their vehicle.  When she removed the drink, 22-year-old Denzel A. Mickiel approached them shouting obscenities and threatening them.  Mickiel then left, returned with a gun and began firing at the group, injuring one of the women.   The veteran, armed with a concealed weapon, returned fire and hit Mickiel twice.

I wonder if Rahm Emmanual will give the veteran the key to the city over it? Probably not though, considering the city that just had a legal gun-owner stop a homicidal maniac, lost it’s battle to keep gun stores out of the city of Chicago. From the Daily Chronicle:

Chicago lost its legal battle to keep gun stores out of the city, and now it must pick up the tab for nearly $1 million in legal fees that the winners spent on the case.

U.S. District Judge Edward E. Chang said in a one-page ruling Thursday that he found fees associated with the lawsuit filed in 2010 by the Illinois Association of Firearms Retailers “reasonable.” Chang, who in January declared Chicago’s decades-old ban on gun stores unconstitutional, ordered the city to pay attorneys’ fees and costs totaling $940,000….

In related news, Vice President Joe Biden, the legendary gaffe machine is keeping it classy with his usual foot-in-mouth disease, calling his opponents ‘Tea Baggers’ for resisting further gun control.  Such an exemplary model of class coming out of the Office of the Vice President today…

The Cobray Double Barrel Derringer 45/410

June 6th, 2014 No comments

cobray_derringer cobray_derringer2

So I bought this little guy a couple years ago and I only just got around to taking out to the range last week.  I was at a gun shop looking for a single-stack .380 at the time, to fit the bill as an ultra-light comfortable waistband or pocket carry in the summertime.

I spotted this little Cobray was sitting there with some there used guns under the glass counter and it struck my curiosity to see it more up close.  It just looked like something out of the 18th… you know one of those little dueling pistols (except shorter and not flint-lock), or some little 19th century Saturday night special like a pocket derringer carried by some poker player in the deep south.

The price tag on it was $75, and long story short – the shop owner made a joke about it being ugly or something and didn’t want to see it anymore and enticed me with an asking offer of $50.  I said eh, what the hell… even if I never shoot it, it’s a great little collector piece, especially to be had for less than a tank of gas.

I finally get around to buying some .45 Long Colt ammunition maybe a year later (not cheap by the way!!), and fast forward another year or so to last week.  I co-own a house in a gated community the Poconos and we have a private range in the back of the development.  The weather was warmer and I was itching to do some shooting. I remembered I had the little Cobray sitting in the safe.

I didn’t know what to expect when shooting it, honestly I was half kind of concerned the damn thing would just blow up in my hand, or I’d lose grip on it as it flew back really hard because of the caliber and size of the grip. As it turns out, not so much, it shot pretty nicely.  It took a few shots to get over the anticipation of the larger bang and holding something so small with that grip, but after that it was actually fun.  It’s definitely not something to rely on for accuracy; probably better suited for carrying as defense against snakes or something with .410 shot-shells loaded instead.

I have no idea exactly how old derringer is, but I would imagine it was made in the 60s or 70s. I’ll have to do some research and post some follow-up details about it.  I do also have a close friend that’s a Special Agent with the ATF, so I’ll have to ask him sometime if he can tell me more about it from the serial number or just about the gun model history in general.   The Cobray Company is dissolved today, but what I do about about them is that they were more known for manufacturing sub-machine guns (similar to the MAC-10, 11, etc) and semi-automatic rifles.  Cobray was also home to a counter-terrorist training center in the 1970s and 80s, under the leadership of Mitchell WerBell.

Bullets Beef n Beer… Road trip!

May 30th, 2014 1 comment

Guns… steak.. beer… ‘Murica!! :-D

Only thing missing in this equation are babes, but midwest farm girls are quite the hotties and I’m sure the Sooner State has quite a few.

Wilshire Gun, a pretty sizable gun range in Oklahoma City, has just been given approval to serve alcohol on site by the city council there. Now some might see this combination as a really bad idea, and of course the libtards and anti-gun activists will go ballistic over it (no pun intended hehe), but co-owner Jeff Swanson has setup a system in place to insure it’s always shooting before drinking and not the other way around.

“Once you order a drink your driver’s license is scanned and you are red-flagged and you’re not allowed into any of the shooting facilities…for the remainder of the day,” Swanson told Fox 25.

Brent Fairchild, with the Alcoholic Beverage Laws Enforcement (ABLE) Commission, argues that people who want to drink then shoot will find a way, which is true – someone could just have drinks before going to the range. But seriously, how is that any different than any other range, or any different than someone going shooting after drinking at some other bar?

EDIT: And to add another excellent point made by a member in a gun forum “I wonder how many of these left wing hypocrits will be entering drinking establishments this evening, consuming alcoholic beverages while possessing car keys.”

This isn’t a done deal, mind you; they still have to apply for a license from the ABLE Commission, but congrats to Wilshire on their success so far.  Check out their website and Facebook page for more info and to keep up to date on their progress. Good luck guys!

Two Cows

May 29th, 2014 No comments

You have 2 cows.
You give one to your neighbour

You have 2 cows.
The State takes both and gives you some milk

You have 2 cows.
The State takes both and sells you some milk

You have 2 cows.
The State takes both and shoots you

You have 2 cows.
The State takes both, shoots one, milks the other, and then throws the milk away

You have two cows.
You sell one and buy a bull.
Your herd multiplies, and the economy grows.
You sell them and retire on the income

You have two cows.
You sell three of them to your publicly listed company, using letters of credit opened by
your brother-in-law at the bank, then execute a debt/equity swap with an associated general offer so that you get all four cows back, with a tax exemption for five cows.
The milk rights of the six cows are transferred via an intermediary to a Cayman Island Company secretly owned by the majority shareholder who sells the rights to all seven cows back to your listed company.
The annual report says the company owns eight cows, with an option on one more. You sell one cow to buy a new president of the United States , leaving you with nine cows. No balance sheet provided with the release.
The public then buys your bull.

You have two giraffes.
The government requires you to take harmonica lessons.

You have two cows.
You sell one, and force the other to produce the milk of four cows.
Later, you hire a consultant to analyze why the cow has dropped dead.

You have two cows. You borrow lots of euros to build barns, milking sheds, hay stores, feed sheds, dairies, cold stores, abattoir, cheese unit and packing sheds.
You still only have two cows.

You have two cows.
You go on strike, organise a riot, and block the roads, because you want three

You have two cows.
You redesign them so they are one-tenth the size of an ordinary cow and produce twenty times the milk.
You then create a clever cow cartoon image called a Cowkimona and market it worldwide.

You have two cows, but you don’t know where they are.
You decide to have lunch.

You have 5000 cows. None of them belong to you.
You charge the owners for storing them.

You have two cows.
You have 300 people milking them.
You claim that you have full employment, and high bovine productivity.
You arrest the newsman who reported the real situation.

You have two cows.
You worship them.

You have two cows.
Both are mad.

Everyone thinks you have lots of cows.
You tell them that you have none.
No-one believes you, so they bomb the ** out of you and invade your country.
You still have no cows, but at least you are now a Democracy.

You have two cows.
Business seems pretty good.
You close the office and go for a few beers to celebrate.

You have two cows.
The one on the left looks very attractive…

RIP Harold Ramis

February 25th, 2014 No comments

Egon but not forgotten

Harold Ramis has been in numerous movies, but he’s probably best known for playing Egon Spengler in Ghostbusters and Pvt. Russell Ziskey in Stripes.  I remember watching both as a kid, but Ghostbusters especially countless times when I got it on VHS.

Ramis contracted an infection in 2010 that gave him an autoimmune inflammatory vasculitis and ultimately resulted in his untimely death today.

In a nice tribute to him, Hook & Ladder 8 of the FDNY (the setting of Ghostbusters) apparently hung this outside the building.

Montana Bows to Pressure from Anti-Gun Lobby

Hard to believe Montana did this, but Montana has followed that idiot newspaper in New York and released a map of the location of all gun owners in the state.

Their locations are marked in red:
