Jackson or Tubman?

Well I for one am not upset with pulling the genocide supporting founding father of  the Democrat Party off the $20 bill and putting a Gun-toting African American Republican Woman there instead.

Backyard shootin.

Last month for my birthday I treated myself, just a little.

I really wanted THIS, an IZH 46 but at $600 it was just a little out of my league.  Actually THIS one would have been a real hoot.  However with my shooting ability, my owning and shooting either of  them would be a bit like putting a $50 saddle on a $10 horse.

So instead I bought myself THIS.  A lot less money and still way more accurate then I am.

Daisy 1

That target is probably 5 shots at 10 meters, since that  is what the gun is intended for.

As I read the chronograph results, it gives 312 fps Low, 346 fps High, 34 fps Extreme Spread, 333 fps Average and a Standard Deviation of 13.  That does not strike me as shabby, most of what I’ve read online indicates that these guns can take anywhere up to 500 rounds to truly break in.

I’m trying, and mostly succeeding, in shooting 60 rounds from it each weekend, in the backyard of course.  As of now I  don’t have any targets worth bragging about yet but I’m trying to get there.  I shot two targets in the low 60’s today.  If I can get consistently into the 70’s I’ll be willing to post a target or two.

Now for a quick review of the gun.  It’s a Daisy, it goes Phhhhht and hits the target every time, if I do my job right.

It’s not a light pistol but it seems to hang nicely in my hand, the rear sights are adjustable but are plastic which just grates on me just a little.  The sight picture is not as “Crisp”, as for example, the sights on my Ruger Standard Auto, but they are quite usable.  The trigger is nice with no creep that I recall.  It is adjustable but I’ll leave it where it is for now, probably about 3 lbs, while I get use to the gun.

The loading port is TINY and with my fingers that counts as a minus, but one that I’ll live with it.

It does not seem possible but with an average pellet velocity of 333 fps, the dwell time for a pellet in the barrel is enough for you to “wibble” right off the target at 10 meters if you don’t hold your follow through on each shot.  I’ll confess the first time that happened to me it was a bit embarrassing.

Overall I like the gun and intend to shoot a couple of thousands rounds through it this summer.

I’ll bet I can get 7 or 8 yards in the garage over winter time also.

The Difference Between Liberals, Conservatives, and Texans

The Difference Between Liberals, Conservatives, and Texans

You’re walking down a deserted street with your wife and two small children. Suddenly, a dangerous looking man with a huge knife comes around the corner, locks eyes with you, screams obscenities, raises the knife, and charges. You are carrying a Glock 40* and you are an expert shot. You have mere seconds before he reaches you and your family. What do you do?
______________________________________________________________________________

Liberal’s Answer:

Well, that’s not enough information to answer the question!

+ Does the man look poor or oppressed?
+ Have I ever done anything to him that would inspire him to attack?
+ Could we run away?
+ What does my wife think? What about the kids?
+ Could I possibly swing the gun like a club and knock the knife out of his hand?
+ What does the law say about this situation?
+ Does the Glock have an appropriate safety built into it?
+ Why am I carrying a loaded gun and what kind of message does this send to society and my children? Is it possible he’d be happy with just killing me?
+ Does he definitely want to kill me or would he just be content to wound me?
+ If I were to grab his knees and hold on, could my family get away while he was stabbing me?

This is all so confusing! I need to debate this with some friends for a few days to try to come to a conclusion.
______________________________________________________________________________

Conservative’s Answer:

BANG!
______________________________________________________________________________

Texan’s Answer:

BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! click (sounds of reloading).

Wife: “Sweetheart, he looks like he’s still moving. What do you kids think?”
Son:  “Mom’s right Dad, I saw it too…”

BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! click.

Daughter: “Nice grouping, Daddy! Were those the Winchester Silver Tips?”

*My only question is.  Why a Glock  and why in .40 S&W?

Insurance so good they have to threaten you to take it, or else.

Halfway through tax season, uninsured filers are paying more than twice as much as they did last year to satisfy Obamacare’s penalty for lacking coverage, H&R Block said Tuesday in an analysis that found other customers are still struggling to match their incomes to tax credits they got from Uncle Sam.

Small Swedish Town Shaken by Migrant Sexual Attacks

I don’t understand it!  It’s almost like they invited a pack of savage animals to play in their nice clean sheep pen.

Now they act all surprised that Rabid Dogs don’t play well with others.

The streets are deserted after dark in a sleepy Swedish town which is a now no-go zone for women after eight sex attacks in three weeks.

Women have been warned by police not to walk alone at night after the once peaceful town of Östersund was shaken to its core by a string of vicious attacks on females and even children by groups of young men of ‘foreign origin’.

First, two 10-year-old girls were groped at a bus stop by a gang of men who threatened to rape them.

The following day, a woman told police she was punched in the face, splitting her eyebrow, by a man who threatened to kill her after he made a rude comment to her.

Just five days later a woman walking on her own was attacked by three men, beaten and pushed to the ground.

They held her down and forced their fingers into her mouth while saying offensive, sexual words to her.

And in the latest incident just five days ago, a woman had to use martial arts to elbow her would-be rapist in the head and escape after three men surrounded her and punched to the ground and tried to pull her trousers down.

Police in Östersund, with a population of 45,000, say they have never seen anything like this before.

They took the unprecedented move of calling a press conference on Monday to warn women to stay indoors.

That will take care of the problem.  Tell them women to stay indoors where they won’t tempt some man like fresh meat left out on the street.

Me?….   I like the “Q Ship” solution to the problem.  Have a half dozen or more Police women (or slightly built “Trans-Women”) walking around by themselves or in twos or threes late at night with orders (or permission if you wish) to shoot to kill if attacked.

A half dozen or so rabid dogs lying dead in the street would cut down the number of these attacks.  In my opinion EVERY SINGLE INCIDENT mentioned above would have been a time and place that the use of lethal force would have been justified.  Just like taking out the trash.  It does not matter, White, Black, Brown or Green.  Christian, Atheist, Buddhist or Muslim.  If you Batter someone like that, then the Gene pool is better off without you. If the “Authorities” won’t take care of the problem, then guns, in the hands of the citizens can and should be the chlorine.  It’s not pretty but building and holding on to a Civilization is not always pretty, but losing it is far worse and uglier.  If the authorities won’t do it then the Free citizens should.  Or they won’t be Free very long.

But no, modern Liberal/Progressivism holds that “A woman found dead in an alley, raped and strangled with her pantyhose, is somehow morally superior to a woman explaining to police how her attacker got that fatal bullet wound.”

Frankly I’d like to see the women of that town (and county) learning how to shoot and carrying concealed.

Please, let the door hit you were the Good Lord split ya.

That’s “Nominated” not elected.

Still that is one or two IQ points above this shining example.

More music.

Two greats.  Doc Watson’s “Deep River Blues”

Played by Tommy Emmanuel

Tommy gave one of the best performances I’ve ever had the privilege to hear, a few years back at Strawberry.
