Later today I'm going to start photographing the Spike's Tactical AR-15 rifle and 9mm pistol that arrived last week. They are masterpieces, so be prepared to drool. Also got my G26 baby Glock end of last week. Cute as a button!
RE: Michael Steele...I took my own advice and sent a letter to the RNC asking for a sit-down interview with Mr. Steele because if we in the gun culture are going to support the Republicans, we need some level of comfort with who's running the store. I do not agree with those who say, hey, he's got some interesting ideas, let's see how he does. My experience has been that people, even politicians, generally say what they mean during those few unguarded moments.
As a more or less libertarian, the majority positions on both parties makes me slightly ill. We all came to the Great Reagan Tent with the understanding that everyone in the tent would support, or at least remain neutral, on other groups' core issues. So I swallow my revulsion on so many issues because being in the Tent means support for my core issues.
If the Tent has indeed collapsed, then we need to start adapting to the new landscape.
