Preparing the next generation of Second Amendment Defenders

The future of the Second Amendment may well rest on how well we prepare the next generation to defend it. U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- President Ronald Reagan famously said that “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction.” That is particularly true of our Second Amendment rights. The fact is, those who wish to enact an extreme anti-Second Amendment agenda have been working to reach the next generation of voters.So, how do we prepare the next generation of Second Amendment defe...

Calibre is not resizing images

For some reason Calibre isn't resizing my images when I convert a .docx to an epub format. All of the forums that I find say it will automatically resize, but I've tried .png .jpg and .svg versions of the same image and they haven't been resizing. Instead they appear off the page. This doesn't really help, considering the main problem-image is a map. The images will resize on an iPhone, iPad and MacOS iBooks, but not a Kobo ereader, even though the output type is set to Kobo.

Question about ADE and authorizations

Is there any way to find a list of what devices are authorized to Adobe's ADE? I want to authorize my Tolino Vision 2 so I can borrow to it from Overdrive but I got the "six devices registered" error. So, I'm guessing, I can de-authorize a device to make room for the Vision, but it would be easier if I had a list of what was authorized. I assume the Windows computer counts as one device. Sorry to ask a dumb question. I just don't much about ADE (I hardly ever use it, except on the Sonys and To...

Precision Rifle Company Michigan Mjolnir .450 Bushmaster U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- I have been covering the .450 Bushmaster here on AmmoLand since this past summer and have had the opportunity to test and build some great guns.

This rifle is something entirely different in that it is a professional custom build from a world-class gunsmith operation. I am happy to be able to present the very first...

Drinking, Drugs, Marijuana and Guns, Never the Twain Shall Meet

Opinion When marijuana and guns are discovered in close proximity (in the same room), a charge of “Illegal Drugs with Guns Present” (a felony in most states) is extremely likely. Ft Collins, CO –-(Ammoland.com)- Students ask:“When I own guns, do I need to become a teetotaler?”The companion question is:“When I own guns, do I need to abstain from all contact with marijuana? For that matter, how about other consciousness-altering drugs, even ones I take by prescription?” My reply: Any time you’r...

Selling Epubs via Flash Drives

If you sell epubs on your own, then you're obviously going to set it up so that people can download a book after they make their payment. But I suspect there may be a few people who are hesitant to make credit card purchases online. In this era of all-out surveillance, some people may also want their reading habits to remain their secret. In that spirit, I wondered if some people might prefer to send an author a check with an extra $5 and have their book delivered via an inexpensive flash driv...

Hornady Critical Defense 22 Magnum Ammo Testing & Review

The much-praised Hornady Critical Defense brand meets the underrated 22 Winchester Magnum cartridge. U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- I am a fan of the 22 Winchester Magnum cartridge. It is a true chameleon cartridge. Like that underrated predator, the 22 Magnum comes in many forms and is surprisingly efficient at what it does. Designed as a rimfire rifle cartridge and an improvement over the venerable 22 LR cartridge for use against varmints.As soon as this new hot round hit shelves in 1959, companie...

Armed Washington State Residents Stops Nail Gun Thieves U.S.A. -(Ammoland.com)- On the afternoon of 22 December, 2018, two young men decided to steal from a Coastal Farm & Ranch store in Marysville, Washington. Marysville is a town of about 60,000 population 35 miles north of Seattle. The two young men took nail guns worth about $3200 from the store, without paying. They did not expect opposition.

Toolbar issue

And when I went to look at the toolbar the only button I now have is the Add Books one. So now I don't have any way to bring back the ...

Review | Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman

This title. This title is my favorite book title in ages. No question. It made me feel things for the titular character, made me long to meet her and join her on her completely fine journey, long before I ever picked up the book itself. My mom gave me a copy for my birthday back in the summer, and I kept it on my nightstand for ages just admiring the colors and the font and the general splendor of what might lie within. Basically just another example of present day me wanting to kick past mysel...

Not Almost

Sigh. It feels to me like I write so much that I don’t hit “post” on these days. (I guess it feels that way because it’s true.) We have had a pretty good Christmas over here, though Joe’s idea (mostly charming, and mostly effective) that keeping busy and building new traditions will be an effective bandage for the grief we all feel this year, as we navigate our first Christmas without Tupper, my Mother and now Susan, almost backfired and took us all out.

How to View Song Lyrics on an iPhone, iPad, Mac, or Apple TV
