Don't worry, my DOWN RANGE Radio podcast will appear as usual on Wednesday! BTW, do you guys like the carefully picked music opening we've been doing the last few weeks?
My sources are confirming BIG TIME that the starting gun has gone off, so to speak, and the AR-15 race is off and running. ARs and 5.56/.223 ammo are blowing out the doors; orders are huge. To put my money where my mouth is, I ordered 10 more Brownell's 30-rounders and placed an order with Spike's Tactical for 2 lowers — 1 rifle and 1 pistol lower. One of them will end up a short-barreled SBR.
BTW, I am hearing on and off the reord that urban law enforcement is gearing up for some ugly nights if The Blessed One manages not to get elected and his stalwart, upright supporters take to the streets. Be aware!
Finally, a gun note from David Petzal...Marlin is rolling out a Guide Gun lever action a la Jim West at Wild West Guns:
What grabbed me, though was the Marlin Model 1895SBL. The company has taken note of all the hot-rodded Guide Guns out there and decided to build one of their own. It’s .45/70, all stainless steel, laminated stock, heavy 18.5-inch barrel, an enlarged loop lever, a 5-shot half-magazine, and instead of the usual horrible factory sights, it’s been fitted with the XS Ghost Ring sight system. This consists of a big white post up front and a huge, adjustable-aperture rear. You look through it and the aperture seems to vanish. It’s very fast to use. There is a long rail mount that let you use long-eye-relief scopes or standard scopes.I'll be getting one of these myself, and so will you after you see the SHOOTING GALLERY episode on the "Tactical Lever Action." I saw the rough-cut on it yesterday (along with several other SGs for the 2009 season), and I was blown away. We're raising the bar again! And wait until you see THE BEST DEFENSE — nothing like it, ever! The daily rushes are spectacular.
Ph, one more note to Brother Petzal...it's okay to be obsessed with Elisha Cuthbert...I mean, she's no Sarah Michelle Geller, but, then again, she's never married Freddie Prinze Jr.!
