Can You Spell "Cabin Fever?"

The high point of the day was making guacamole (Alton Brown's recipe) after ordering a .204 Ruger AR upper from JP Rifles. That's what happens with cabin fever...a little voice in your head says,"Go can scrape up the bucks when it's ready..." I was blown away with the .204, a 4000fps 36-grain rocket that shoots like a laser beam. I have plans for the final gun!

Today was a heat wave, the high was 20, count 'em, degrees! Alf was as frolicsome as a puppy since the ice wasn't freezing in her paw pads. I even slept late, which is rare. I'm trying to spend 30 minutes a day dry-firing the Ruger revolver, and I think I'm finally settling into it. Hopefully the Blade-Tech holster will be here soon so I can start draws.

Here's a piece you need to read and distribute...a former MAIG mayor says he left the organization when he realized Bloomberg's ONLY objective was total civilian disarmament:
A former member of Michael Bloomberg’s gun control groupclaimed this week that the group’s objectives are far more radical than it has let on. 
John Tkazyik, the mayor of Poughkeepsie, N.Y., said he quit the former New York City mayor’s group, Mayors Against Illegal Guns, after he realized its objective was outright confiscation of firearms from law-abiding citizens.
Read the whole thing and pass it on. And remember, I told you so. There is no "conversation," there is no "reasonable," there is no "common sense," there is no "third way." There is only door-to-door confiscation by whatever reiteration of the Gestapo our little progressive friends can dream up...I'll bet they will have the cutest silver scull morale patches!

To back that up, here's a good piece from William Levinson at AMERICAN THINKER (where the above poster came from), "Gun Control: A War, Not a Conversation:"
(3) Incrementalism is War 
When Adolf Hitler says, "Today Germany, tomorrow the world," nobody should delude himself into believing that appeasement will make his statement mean something else. When militant Arabs publish Israel-free maps of the Middle East, and run children's shows that call for the extermination of Jews followed by Islamic domination of the world, a responsible person takes them at their word and treats them accordingly: like rabid animals, as opposed to negotiating partners with whom it is possible to have any kind of win-win conversation. 
When Senator Dianne Feinstein says, "If I could have gotten 51 votes in the Senate of the United States for an outright ban, picking up every one of them . . . Mr. and Mrs. America, turn 'em all in, I would have done it," it is similarly best to take her at her word. The same goes for Jan Schakowsky's (D-IL, wife of convicted felon Robert Creamer) statement that Congress can indeed get around to banning handguns. Andrew Cuomo has added that confiscation of firearms is an option, while Handgun Control Inc. said openly that the Brady Bill is merely the nose of the camel under the tent.
Good reading and good reminders. I have been taken to task for saying we are involved in a "war." This is the battle of our lifetimes.

And BTW, if you could spare a minute cross your fingers for my friend Lanny Barnes and all the members of U. S. Biathlon in Russia at the Winter Games.

Alton Brown recipes will brighten up even the coldest, darkest day.

The man likes Monty Python, good bourbon and classic 1911's. What's not to love?

And I still say that "Good Eats" is a viable template for a TV gun show.

Hmmn, now who do I know who could make that happen... :D
