Wow, hasn’t been much action in the video dept!

This is just a quick video update as to why I haven’t made videos in the lat month, a preview of what’s to come, and possibly some contests.. :)

Comparing Getting Shot By 12ga to Sex On A Roller-coaster

Darwinism at it’s finest. The irony is if you go to their channel, they are all about survival, prepping, hunting etc. It would behoove one to think that if part of what you do is to practice survival techniques that would also include not taking 12 gauge shotguns blasts to the chest at 25 feet, but that’s just me.

The take-away I get from this is in order to be  a man, you must get drunk with your buddies, put on a leather jacket, and shoot each other with “non-lethal rubber pellets” from a Mossberg 500. I’ll be in the wimpy crowd, thanks.

KONY 2012 Is A SCAM

KONY 2012 Is A Scam

In order to deploy a military presence in Africa, the American support is key. How do you get the majority of Americans ok with going to war or at a minimum have a military presence in Africa without anyone questioning motive? Provide the motive.

Let me preface this with saying I’m not intending to be insensitive to the crimes against humanity that have been conducted by Joseph Kony, but please understand that this video was originally filmed in 2006 and didn’t get ANY press coverage. Also keep in mind that social media wasn’t in much existence in 2006 so it was hard to get wide spread coverage. Why am I mentioning this? Because, Joseph Kony hasn’t actually been active in Uganda for years. What is in Uganda? Oil. Lots and lots of black money spewing from the ground.

The LRA is surely guilty of committing  kadogo (child soldiers) but so has the Democratic Republic of Congo, and this isn’t mentioned in the video. Especially when Ugandans have been wishing to rid of Yoweri K. Museveni who has been in power for more than 20 years by way of stealing elections and using the same violent tactics as Joseph Kony. Bill Clinton has been a long time supporter of Museveni and his power hold on the region.

Springless AA2 Kit

Closest thing to a full auto Ruger 10/22

Springless AA2 Kit

The stock and KIDD two stage trigger is the perfect addition to any Ruger 10/22. This kit is hitting the market with a lot of attention just like the infamous “slidfire” stock for the AR platform. The kit comes in at a cool $629.00 which is steep considering I paid for $189.00 brand new for my Ruger 10/22 with fiber optic sights. To drop more than three times what I spent ont he rifle for a stock and trigger group just seems absolutely……….awesome. :)

I don’t think I will be picking this up anytime soon but sure would love to get my hands on one. The issue with the AR/AK slidefire is that it’s super fun, but you burn through some expensive ammo super fast. With the AA2 Kit, you could play all day for $20.00 since 22 LR ammo is so inexpensive. It’s a tempting offer. Click Read More to see the awesome video..

Best Guns For Women?

How do you select a firearm for a female shooter?

Best Guns For Women

Recently more females in my immediate and extended family have shown more interest in not just purchasing a firearm that is right for them, but also carrying one on their person, in their purse or nearby.  This is a completely different scenario versus a man carrying. Typically men can carry inside or outside the waistband on different location of their waist. Women’s waist are not straight like a mans and it can create challenges for carrying larger firearms.

The first and foremost objective is to identify a firearm that is comfortable in the hand of the shooter, and the balance. The next is how does the gun feel when firing the weapon and the recoil. This first step usually will determine the size of the cartridge or caliber of the gun. The next step is to determine a revolver (quite popular with the ladies) or a semi automatic pistol. These are also referred to as striker fired pistols. The best way to figure this out is to take your lady, sister, mom, grandma or whoever it is to the local gun range. Rent some different revolvers and pistols and put some brass through them.   Some popular choices amongst females are the following:
