I really planned to spend the day futzing around with the air rifles, but instead ended up cleaning and setting up all the cowboy guns for next week's Winter Range in Phoenix, the cowboy nationals. All the ammo's loaded, the guns are clean -- well, my revolvers are still floating in solvent -- got my clothes laid out...looking forward to it. I love shooting matches, and I miss them in the dead of winter.
Am moving forward on the break-down Marlin .44 lever gun...going for a16.5 inch barrel & scout scope mount with the little Aimpoint. Be a while until its done, of course.
Interesting to see how many blogposts/articles seem to center on stuff we've covered on thus season of THE BEST DEFENSE...sincerest form of flattery, etc.
Great article on Big Government about why don't we just repeal all gun control:
The repeal of gun laws or even a moratorium for sixty months will not lead to blood in the streets any more than the right to carry in forty-eight states has. The majority of states in America supports the concept of the armed citizen with more than enough laws to protect the public (murder is already illegal, for instance) and registration of guns is unheard of in many states. All inall, they have not been given reason to regret open and concealed carry for millions. Those states have found that the armed citizen reduces crime by a ubiquitous presence while gun control has proven to be absent when it was needed most.
