I’m not on Instagram. Didn’t hear about this until it was over. However reading the comments there appeared to be a more than a hint of agent provocateur activity. Then like everyone else, moved on.
Then a 2A advocate (JW Walshington spelling?) put up a video of going to the scene and there was almost nothing going on. Couldn’t get jailhouse…[Read more]
Please include a ballpark cost estimate.
As an older civilian, I’m stuck in the terminal “I don’t know” loop, (what do I need, what’s the difference between good, bad, who is trying to screw you as a vendor, can I really hump it?)
To compound the situation, my gear has to be working on “post ban” rules. Consider training in the land of 10rd…[Read more]

Stay away from the rhetoric of fools.
This can’t be emphasised enough!
Staying away isn’t going to be enough. Make a plan on how to deal with the loudmouths.
In NY the belligerent got rounded up and found with contraband. They were made examples of and really hurt legitimate efforts. (Ammoland had an article recently regarding t…[Read more]
NY has an very weak and disorganized 2A community. Many of the best people have voted with their feet and left. Good organizations have fractured or closed completely as divisions between people who want to “do something!” And the “wait for***XYZ” factions fight for direction.
Bootlickers in NY are overshadowed by deep throat and swallow praise…[Read more]
Here in Post SAFE act NY, reserve officer status is a big money maker. If you want to buy an AR or keep your information published with pistol permit, becoming a Reserve Officer is about the only option. Donations and volunteer hours depend on who you are and what you can give. An annual six digit donation, use of an airplane, free events at…[Read more]
Google “Luty machine gun”. He wrote a book on how to build an open bolt.
Government made an example out of him and he died in prison iirc.
In the ’30’s a guy sold or gave away 1 square foot properties in upstate NY. If owning land became a requirement someone either politically or just enterprising will do the same to satisfy the requirement.
The rule of law is broken. The Wall Street journal estimated that the average person committed three felonies a day.
Love the Lee Loader. I don’t have a 30-30 anymore but whack (literally with a hammer!) Out some 30-30; cast over TrailBoss loads for a friend.
There’s a 358Win BLR I really would like to spend some time with. If someone would just design a way for it to take AR10 mags….
Jeff Cooper refered to the lever gun as a legal “Brooklyn special”.

JC, There’s a lot of truth in “Good fences make good neighbors”.
As livestock on pasture has decreased, the fence has become Posted signs.
It’s much easier to identify bad guys when they break the rules.
My sign printer is occupied with her mother’s hospice care but some preliminary layout of an alternative to the traditional Posted sign was…[Read more]
Fels Naptha soap, Borax, and washing soda is good stuff. It won’t quite get the stink of Diesel and Hydraulic oil out but it’s better than anything else.
An old saying, “I don’t have money for bubble gum.” or Soda Pop or whatever else was a trivial thing that wouldn’t help get someone to where they want to be in life.

Recently a Highschool kid with a “rice burner” caused an incident. His school parking lot burn out had his car bouncing off the electronic rev limiter making a staccato noise mistaken for “machine gun fire”. This consumed a considerable amount of resources.
Just as the Ronin movie used a simulation noise maker to…[Read more]
A priest molesting kids is still evil. However even a few years ago Catholics would protest “not here!”. 20 years ago the church would be considered a foundation of Good, and will most likely face a RICO case in my lifetime.
The abuse in government run orphanages and bodies being dug up in boy’s towns is evil long denied.
My point was are we…[Read more]
Going into the weeds here from the original topic however I have to defend the “More guns=Less crime” truth.
1. That study was from 2002 and got ripped apart for the statistical twists in 2017.https://ajph.aphapublications.org/doi/full/10.2105/AJPH.2017.303837

Joe, One thing that’s peculiar is the historical decline of murder.
We’re living in one of the safest times and places in the history of the world. Are the seemingly bizarre and evil things that are currently crawling into the light (the folks trying to normalize all these perversions for example), the same as always except we’re seeing them or…[Read more]
NY banned online sales with the SAFE act.
Online sales of Reloading supplies are not banned.
I find reloading very enjoyable, but not inexpensive. Gear and then faster or more precise or larger volume gear can add up. It’s a rabbit hole that has black hole power if you are outside of the really cheap 9mm, 5.56, 7.62*39 rounds.
Double up…[Read more]
It does sound like MVT!

Who will protect us from the police?
If the Union head hadn’t threatened the 1st amendment rights of “Dirtbags” these cops would be still on the job.
Good chance they will never serve a day or loose a dime.
My Great Aunt started WW2 assembling “tiny parts” into Carburetors for Curtis Wright. Then fueling “outside in fresh air”. As the war went on she became a nurse. She mentioned the use of maggots on men returned from the Pacific. They worked wonders cleaning up “the rot and dead parts” so the living could heal. However many men itched…[Read more]
