Wait, what?

"I don't mind it, but I wish they wouldn't constantly be rubbing their sexuality in our faces," says local man who has subscribed to Dillon's Blue Press with its gunbunny-of-the-month covers for the last eight years. https://t.co/K6OKThBTKj— Tamara K.

Pep Talk

Marko on writing full-time:"I sold Terms of Enlistment and its sequel to 47North in the spring of 2013, and I’ve been able to write full-time ever since. It took me until my forties to figure out that I wasn’t really cut out for any other kind of work, so to those of you who are submitting stories and trying to get a foot in the door, I’d say not to worry about being too late to the party. Nothing moves fast in the publishing field anyway." [Author: Tam]

Ah, the Hanyang 88...

I still remember buying mine... "...a crude Chinese copy of the Steyr copy of the German original. The wood was pretty beat up and it was missing a bottom metal screw, the buttplate, and a stock fitting out by the nosecap. The exterior was surprisingly un-rusted with no real pits and a smooth brown patina, while the action was caked with a sludgelike mix of old WD-40 varnish and dust. I asked him what he wanted for it, more out of curiosity than anything else, and he said something about how he'...

Negative Outcomes

Claude Werner, the Tactical Professor, has a couple more unfortunate lessons for his collection of serious mistakes gun owners make:Deadly Conduct and Attempted MurderThose are the charges in two incidents where Negative Outcomes resulted from gunfire. Both situations occurred when people thought they were making good decisions about employing a firearm for Personal Protection but the legal system doesn’t agree.In one case, we have a person whose sole and only plan for trouble seems to have been...

Zoom Hate

I think some of the residual hate toward zoom lenses comes from the fact that some early ones were truly awful, and even the good modern ones are usually slower than their fixed focal length equivalents. An f/2.8 zoom is pretty fast, after all. But sometimes you need one to get the shot. zOoM wItH yOuR fEeT https://t.co/qcnfx0sg3X— Tamara K.

Today's GoogleSat find...

I was steering the GoogleSat view around southern Germany and ran across this oddity parked out front of the Dornier museum... I wondered what it was...and what was up with those big long wingtip nacelles. Turns out they're full of lift! That's one of the surviving Dornier Do-31 VTOL transport prototypes. . [Author: Tam]

Gun Fight

Back in the early Nineties, the legal slapfight between Glock and Smith & Wesson got so acrimonious that you couldn't buy their products from the same wholesalers, and Glock changed the rollmark on their model 22 and 23 pistols from ".40S&W" to just plain ".40". Now it looks like Sig Sauer is going after Springfield Armory, claiming that the magazines for the latter's Hellcat infringe on two patents that the former filed for the P365's sticks. No telling if this will get as involved as Glock v...

Did you immediately want to share it because it pushed your buttons so hard?"There used to be a distinction between Russian and Chinese activities in cyberspace. While China concentrated on cyber-espionage, plundering secrets from Western corporate and government systems, the Russians were the vandals.

Ugh, the internet.

"Why didn't he fire a warning shot?" Okay, first, because even warning shots land someplace. Whose living room would you like it to land in? Second, because she was in the middle of stabbing someone, so there wasn't a lot of time for warning people. "Why didn't he shoot her in the leg?" Oh, man, when are we going to rid people of the damfool notion that it's possible to shoot someone a little bit? A bullet in the knee can leave someone crippled for life, possibly resulting in amputation....

It doesn't work like that.

So, some dude on the gunternet made the claim that he could draw a .22WMR NAA Mini from his pocket and put all five rounds into a playing card sized target at five feet in less than two seconds, strong hand only. Pardon my bluntness, but that claim is simply bullshit and is the sort of gun forum nonsense spouted by people who wouldn't know what button to push on a timer to make it go "beep" in the first place. A fast pocket draw to a relatively wide-open target like a USPSA A-zone or the ID...

Asking the important questions...

Are ghost guns guns useable by ghosts or guns that allow you to shoot ghosts? Because that makes a big difference in whether I want them banned or not.— Frank J. Fleming (@IMAO_) April 8, 2021 [Author: Tam]

"Bobbi, don't look!"

It's mostly just idle daydreaming, but this car has Bobbi written all over it. Heck, I wouldn't kick it out of the garage for leaking electrons, either. The styling is drop-dead gorgeous. I noticed it via a piece about electric runabouts at CNN. It's probably vaporware, but at least it's good looking vaporware. . [Author: Tam]

April Fooled?

Here's a tale about an...er, interesting Craigslist interaction. Not long ago, I got my old computer back from servicing and put it on Craigslist. Immediately I got a message from a nice woman who said she had researched computers and mine was just what she was looking for. One small problem—she lives in the area, she said, but she's on vacation, and could I please accept a cashier's check, deposit it, and then hold the computer for her movers, who would pick it up for her? She offered $500, and...

The G-Man

An interesting take on G. Gordon Liddy by Brian Karem: Liddy had a sense of humor, and didn’t mind when I made fun of anything he did; his main concern that I was accurate in telling the story. If he actually did it, and I called him on, he would own it. And while he had a reputation as a violent man, he said sometimes it was justified. “What gets me angry very rapidly is to see someone in a superior social position degrade someone with a lesser social standing who cannot defend himself.”Liddy's...

Coming Out Swinging

Internet-friend Chris Cypert's first post at his shiny new blog is a doozy. "We often encounter people whose self-image is radically divorced from how we see them based on their actions, and we wonder how they could see themselves so differently from how they “really are.” This conflict between self-image (who we think we are “on the inside”) and the image we project to the world through our actions is a common and pernicious problem which keeps people from soberly assessing themselves and their...

Hey, look!

"If you look at a picture of a car and it has tail fins, you know it was from the 1950s. If you look at a picture of home interiors and they’re full of shag carpet and avocado-hued appliances, you know they’re from the 1970s. Nowadays, if you look at a photo of a pistol and it looks like the slide lost a fight with a CNC machine, you know it’s from the end of the Twenty-Teens. I’m not exactly sure who actually originated this fad, so I’ll blame Glock. It didn’t actually start with Glock, mind y...
