Tired Puppy...

Finished up this filming session for TBD/SURVIVAL yesterday after the big 3-day push on McDonald v. Chicago for DRTV. Which started as soon as we got back from Arizona...my brain needs a quick break...so I'll just crib from other blogs this AM.

REASON has a good commentary on "Chicago's Pointless Handgun Ban:"
The proponents obviously knew all along this city-by-city approach had serious shortcomings. But they figured it was bound to curtail gun availability somewhat. They also hoped that by prohibiting handguns in one place, they were beginning a bigger process.
First, they expected that other cities and states would follow suit. Second, they wagered that strict controls at the local level would acclimate Americans to new regulations at the national level.
But things didn't work out that way. The persistence of crime in supposedly gun-free zones didn't build support for broader gun control by showing the limits of piecemeal legislation. It weakened the case, by proving that such regulations have little impact on the people who present the biggest danger. Instead of a broad upward avenue, it was a dead end.
Gun control supporters fear that if the Supreme Court invalidates local handgun bans, the consequences will be nothing but bad. That would be easier to believe if the laws had ever done any good.
Over at my regular daily read at THE FIREARMS BLOG, Steve's covering the military's quest for an improved magazine. I'm all for improved magazines but I'd like to note hat the current generation of magazines for the AR platform are amazingly reliable, most notably the P-Mags and the Brownells.

My good friend John Snow over at OUTDOOR LIFE has apparently been drinking some of our (exceptionally flavorful and good for you!) Kool-Aid as he wades mucky yucky gore-deep into the zombie gun controversy:
When it comes to zombie guns there’s no middle ground. You either love ’em or hate ’em. And because I hate zombies, I love zombie guns. My top choice in a rifle for battling the undead is this AR from Lauer Custom Weaponry that includes an arrow launcher attached to the bottom rail and a blood-splattered DuraCoat finish. For a shotgun, I have a modified 870 with an extended magazine tube, adjustable Knoxx buttstock and a Surefire weapon light, and on my hip I carry a hi-cap .45 1911 from Para—the company’s Super Hawg model.
Me, I'm leaning toward something in a 10-gauge flavor, maybe like the old Ithaca Mag-10 Roadblocker, although the 12-gauge Mossberg current version isn't exactly chopped liver:


The Mossberg would need the "zombie" Duracoat option, maybe red spattered green and yellow gore or a skulls motif like this image from Glock Talk:




That pattern would make a great Hawaiian shirt, wouldn't it?
