Stan Lee died

And there was much weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth.  Loud were the cries of the fans, who mourned and donned sack-cloth and covered themselves with ashes.

There's going to be tributes, and everybody is going to cry about how they loved x character best.

Look, the guy was 95.  He was rich.  Not rich as in "I have a nice house and a fancy car" rich, but rich as in "he would never have been able to spend all the money his comic book characters made for him" levels of wealth.  He lived a good life, and died at an age that I won't ever see thanks to my genetics.  I don't want to see another outpouring of grief for a celebrity who died.  Why can't we just celebrate a good life without all the hysterics?

So what they're really saying is that Muslims are incapable of existing in Western Civilization.

England is refusing asylum for Asia Bibi, a Pakistani Christian woman who's life is in danger, because they don't want to cause "unrest" in their Muslim population.  So in short, they are admitting that Muslims cannot co-exist with Western Civilization.  They are also admitting that they are no longer part of Western Civilization, seeing as how they care more about the inbred pedophile worshipping rapists and barbarians than they do about a Christian woman who's life is in danger from more inbred pedophile worshipping rapists and barbarians. 

Britain has rejected an appeal for asylum from Asia Bibi, the Pakistani Christian acquitted of blasphemy last week who is under the threat of death from Islamic leaders who struck a deal with her government to block her exit. 
The British government said allowing Bibi to enter the U.K. would cause unrest among Muslims, according to an advocate, the Huffington Post reported
Wilson Chowdhry, chairman of the British Pakistani Christian Association, said he’s been led to believe that the British government “had concerns that her moving to the UK would cause security concerns and unrest among certain sections of the community and would also be a security threat to British embassies abroad which might be targeted by Islamist terrorists.”

The proper response to these inbred, pedophile-worshipping rapists and barbarians is "We are bringing her here because it's the right thing to do.  If you try to stop us, you will be shot like the dogs you are."

If all of Islamic history could be boiled down into one sentence, it would be this:  Rage filled sub-human animals infect societies they could never build and destroy civilizations they could never create.

And quite frankly, Britain is done.  They're finished.  They don't have the strength necessary to defend themselves from the Islamic infection they gave themselves.  They refuse to defend the girls and women that muslims rape and use as sex slaves as in Rotherham.  They refuse to grant asylum because they know the muslims they have allowed in will riot and kill and loot and maim, and they're unwilling to do anything about it.

If you've ever wanted to see Britain, go do it now, because soon it'll be nothing but another Jihadi shithole.

Saw this. Stole it. Posting it here.

Yep, yep, yep and yep.  Especially #6.

Veteran's Day

I'm thankful to every vet who came before me that gave me the opportunity to do what I do now.

Vets might not be the most genteel people.  War is fought by rough men.  But I'd take a football field of vets for company over a roomfull of Hollywood liberals any day of the week.

In related news:  The Birdsong of Peace.  I wonder how many Yanks broke down when they heard the guns go silent, and the birds start to sing.

Range Report

Took the new Ruger to the range.  There were a few hiccups in the first couple of magazines.  A couple of FTF, at least one where the case didn't eject all the way and got caught in the chamber as the slide closed.  I put about 200 rounds through it yesterday, and I tried all kinds of ammo.  The cheap plinking ammo is where I had problems - I tried Gold Dot, Sig Sauer and Hornady hollowpoints, and they all fed/cycled just fine.  Like I said, the problems were only in the first couple of mags.  After that, the gun ate everything I threw at it.  So maybe the springs needed to be beaten into submission before they operated properly.

Came home, and found my Talon grips in the mail.  So I put them on last night.



That's SEXY right there.....  I do find it humorous that I got my hot-weather carry gun just as the weather here turns cold and wet.  It'll go into my carry rotation anyways; the Mrs. decided that she wasn't in love with her Vedder holster so she gave it to me.  Also ordered a LC9 shell for my Alien Gear holster, which the Mrs. might just steal when it comes in.  That's a comfortable holster.  The Vedder is smaller, which will come in handy depending on what I'm wearing.

Anyways, there it is.  Mine all mine.

Been a screwed up month

So I'm going to the range today with the Mrs. and a friend.  Nothing like poking holes in paper at long distance to make you feel better.

Pompous, puffed-up prick loses his White House Press Credentials

It's about damn time.  Jim Acosta is a legend in his own mind, but for anyone else who's unfortunate enough to be around him, he's an arrogant, ignorant, egomaniacal narcissist who spends his time shouting accusations at Donald Trump rather than asking questions.  His press pass should have been yanked a long time ago, and that fat, stupid cow April Ryan should be next.

We normals have waited decades for someone to treat the mainstream media with the contempt and disrespect they deserve.  Trump could publicly lynch 90% of the White House Press Corps on national TV, and I wouldn't shed one tear.  I'd celebrate.

I ain't paying $10 shipping for a $5 item

Look, let's say you're selling a widget, and it's not a widget I can't live without.  It's a small, light widget that might weigh an ounce.  Maybe.

Shipping on that widget should be a buck or two.  Call it a dollar for postage and shipping materials, and another dollar for the time you spend slapping it in an envelope.

I'm not going to pay $10 for you to put your widget, your nice flat light widget, in an envelope and put a first class stamp on it.

Hell, Talon Grips didn't charge me a damn thing for shipping, because they can effectively ship me their grips in a flat first-class USPS envelope.  And USPS will come pick it up for free.  They don't even have to fight lines at the Post Office.

Anyways, just wanted to get that off my chest.

National Socialist Democrat Worker's Party regains the House

This sucks, obviously.

However, it also means that this country now gets to stare Nancy Pelosi in the face for a few years.  America doesn't like Nancy Pelosi.  Not really.

Dear GOP:  If you had actually helped the President along, you might have had more people that were willing to vote for you.  But on damn near every issue, you sat on your hands.  Paul Ryan is to blame for his feckless, weak, and establishmentarian leadership.  He's a big-government punk, and we're better off without him.

The Kavanaugh fight actually helped us in the Senate.  Possibly because we voters got to see the GOP senators actually fight back.

Belated birthday present

So, the Mrs. got a Ruger LC9s Pro for an anniversary gift.  It's going to be her carry gun, and she's put several hundreds downrange since she got it.  And of course, since I'm in the lane right next to her, she allows me some time with it.

Oh my, that trigger.  And it's a single stack 9mm that's almost as small as a .380 pistol.  And it shoots so very, very nice.....


So I got one as well for my birthday.  Somewhat belated, but I'm calling it my birthday gift.  So we now have His and Hers Rugers.  I ordered some Talon grips for mine, in Moss.  So we can tell them apart. 

This will be my carry gun during hot weather.  My Taurus or my 1911 will be my cold weather gun.  Screw this whole "dressing around the gun" thing.  I'm just buying a gun that fits the climate.
