Sigh...Summer's Almost Gone...

Where will we be...where will we be indeed....

Took yesterday off and drove over to Summit County for one of our favorite bicycle rides, from Frisco up to the top of Vail Pass (10,662 feet), then whoop de do, back down again. It is a beautiful ride in any season, sort of the distilled essence of Colorado. The high aspen are just starting to go shimmery green, the color they get before they go gold. The temperature was perfect, in the high 60s, and the hordes of Labor Day end-of-summer crowds had not yet descended on the mountains.

Then stopped at Backcountry Brewery for one of their award-winning pilsners, Ptarmigan Pils, never as good in the bottle as fresh from their taps.

Am chasing my tail today, doing a little work on next week's podcast so I can take Monday off and lots of telephone conferences. We start filming Season 3 of TBD in Denver next week, with more Season 11 SHOOTING GALLERY scheduled for the week after. Gonna be crazy time for the rest of the fall, to be sure.

Shooting-wise, one of the Ruger 6.8s showed up, so I'm going to try and work in a side-by-side with the same gun in 5.56...I just ordered a bunch of 6.8 — ouchies! They're not giving the stuff away, are they?

Joe Huffman had a nice post yesterday on the current antigunners' cry for us to find "common ground." I of course agree with Joe — the endless meme of "common ground" is simple code language for, "would you guys mind giving up a bunch of your enumerated rights so we can feel better about ourselves?" The answer is no. You want to feel better about yourselves, take a firggin' Pilates class...or go to a range and learn how to shoot! It's amazing how empowering shooting can be!

My response to the anti-gunners is that we have been trying to find "common ground" and compromise with them for almost 100 years. It's time for them to start giving some stuff up.

It is all about incrementalism with these guys.. We need to be vigilant since they are always lurking in the fringe and coming up with "clever" little ideas to try to compromise or destroy us. We are only gaining when our push back causes.a slide! Keep pushing and never let up. Take no prisoners. Carlito's Way!

The Obama State Department just "RULED" that they will not allow the import of vintage Korean War-era rifles to the United States "because they may find there way into the wrong hands"! This is indicative of the elitist idea that honest people can't be trusted to own guns.

You’ll surely not regret investing your few cash on these Christian Louboutin Pumps
. Looking at it already tells that these are sure to last through the years and are sure to complement just about any of your choice of wardrobe.
This go-with-everything footwear is done in stone suede material and is trimmed with golden leather, which indeed shows a luxurious neutral combination. It has a wide band across the open toe, which comes plain with only the golden trimming; but what actually makes this pair chic is the gold leather woven design on the elasticated ankle strap and also on the heel. This is definitely a stunning design, but you know that such could indeed work with anything for every season.
The heel measures about 3.5 inches, and it is definitely enough to make this work from the day throughout the night.
For the spring and summer, you might want to wear these Christian Louboutin Woven-Effect Suede Sandals with your sun-drenched dress for a luxurious seasonal look. Get this at STYLE-HEELS for $245.
