modern handgun ammo

The first rule of gunfighting: #1 Have a gun Practice is a close second. News reports OFTEN have guys emptying magazines towards each other missing their intended targets in a big hurry. The guy who hits first wins… or more accurately, Loses a lot less, because nobody actually wins a gunfight. Everyone is wounded to some degree. Caliber matters as does ammo. Modern construction like Hornady’s Critical Defense has changed the caliber equation. 9mm is now where .40 was a few years ago. 38 Special and even .380 have become effective defensive ammo. I wouldn’t have said that about them until recently, though .38 sufficed for a long, long time. By the way, Critical Duty is made for law enforcement […]

Signs That The Elite Are Feverishly Preparing For Something BIG By Michael Snyder, on April 15th, 2015 What in the world are the elite up to? In recent days, we have learned that the New York Fed is moving a lot of operations to Chicago because of concerns about what a “natural disaster” could do, the federal government is buying 62 million rounds of ammunition commonly used in AR-15 semi-automatic rifles for “training” purposes, and NORAD is moving back into Cheyenne Mountain because it is “EMP-hardened”. In addition, government authorities have scheduled a whole host of unusual “training exercises” all over the nation. So are the elite doing all of this in order to prepare for something really BIG, […]

our new car

We just completed a round trip to Helena to fetch an attractive model of the car at the top of my list. I really didn’t expect to find one in good condition, but there it was. These have spectacular efficiency and longevity. With mechanical fuel injection, almost nothing can stop them if you take care of basic maintenance. 1982 Mercedes Benz 240D 4 Speed manual mid-size type : sedan drive : rwd fuel : diesel transmission : manual cylinders : 4 cylinders condition: excellent White, tan MBTex interior, sheep skin seat covers in front. Straight, and rust free. Crank windows, original AM/FM, cold A/C. Less than 15K on perfect running rebuilt engine…. starts instantly, runs great, consistently honest 30mpg town […]

read the labels, and know why

High Fructose Corn Syrup Apologist or Shill? By Nate Rifkin Back in college, I took a took a nutrition class in a stadium-style room with about 199 other students… who would all quickly come to despise me. Because I couldn’t keep my mouth shut. Especially when the professor prattled on about how cholesterol and saturated fat are bad for you. One fond memory of mine was when she compared two major sports drinks and said their nutritional profiles were essentially the same. I raised my hand. “Not so. One contains sucrose, and the other contains high fructose corn syrup.” She shrugged her shoulders and replied, “So?” Good times in higher education. Believe me, she wasn’t genuinely perplexed. The professor knew […]

Kansas or Oz

OTC Pain Reliever Found to Blunt Emotions Like Joy Heather Callaghan – from Activist Post It’s been about 12 years since Equilibrium quietly arrived in theaters, only to become better known as the years went on. The dystopian flick about the forced removal of emotions – i.e. any shred of humanity – through mandated injections was quite the extreme allegory to average viewers. But perhaps you looked around and saw the “desensitizing metaphor” in all kinds of things in this twisted bumpy stop we call reality. Fluoride, prescription drugs, antibiotics and other things that wipe out the gut (second brain), television programming, heavy metal and chemical exposure, schooling, etc… A good many things keep consciousness quelled by various forms of […]


That the 40-somethings have nothing to learn from their parents has one of two possible assumptions. 1) Nature made a breakthrough in a single generation. Thousands of years of evolution suddenly spiked in the late 1900s making the current crop of middle-agers genius when compared with their parents. 2) Humans peak somewhere in their 40s and become stupider and stupider over the next 40 years. I would rather think option #1 happened than that my kids have given up hope of gaining knowledge over the next 20 years. But I know this is a product of the deliberate breakdown in nuclear families and the programming that there are experts outside of, and superior to, families, and that matriarchs, patriarchs, wise […]

mandatory drinking the Kool-Aid

It is certainly a bad thing when the media monopoly, the training monopoly and The State conspire to sell one side of a story. But in today’s Internet world, other views ARE available. People can trip over non-mainstream thought. Some escape the monolithic mind meld, get out of the current, and make their own way through the information jungle. This is, of course, why shutting down or controlling the Internet is so important to the statists. It would cut the number, knowledge and power of the escapees to a fraction that poses no threat … or at least a greatly reduced threat. Meanwhile, we do have the Internet. Nearly all aspects of any theme or story are available, if we […]

keep it open

A mind is like a parachute It only works when it is open Son, twenty years ago I trusted the same people you now trust. Oh their faces looked different, but their hearts and souls are identical. And that, trust me, is not complimentary. Power corrupts Absolute power corrupts absolutely I have yet to stop learning. I hope you are also continuing to learn. I am not forgetting important things. I am instead learning that some of what used to pass as knowledge was instead fiction. Granted, that within another twenty years my mind is likely to weaken. But I will also, judging from experience with my elders, recognize that. I am not there yet. Twenty years from now you […]

another car guy blogger

This morning I discovered Eric Peters’ website. Perhaps a half-generation younger, he is strikingly similar to me in many ways. He clearly understands and has plenty of experience with high-performance driving for the sheer delight in the act itself. He also fully comprehends The Nanny State efforts to remove joy, individuality and thinking from our lives. Best of all, he can express that and more with written words. His car- and motorcycle-guy stories are like reading my own with names and places changed to protect the innocent guilty. We both understand that speed limits good for cement trucks and motor homes are not real-world relevant to high-performance bikes and cars guided by skilled drivers. Con Brio driving focuses an alert […]

why cops murder innocents

LNC Chair Nicholas Sarwark says murder charge against Walter Scott’s killer is only first step Libertarian National Committee Chair Nicholas Sarwark released the following statement today: “Mere words are insufficient to describe my outrage over the murder of Walter Scott by a man in a police uniform. “A man was pulled over for an alleged traffic infraction and ended up dead on the ground, shot eight times in the back as he fled. “Naturally, Officer Michael Slager felt safe from scrutiny, given the recent high-profile cases where courts have refused to prosecute police brutality.” “But finally, the justice system is functioning as it should. Unlike the killing of Eric Garner – and countless more whose slayings were not captured […]

Super Polluter – beats all the rest combined

Chemtrail Pilot Blows the Lid Off OPERATION INDIGO SKYFOLD Maybe my fellow pilots will read or hear about this, and decide to come forward as well. The original version of this page as posted on our healthcare site is being attacked. Please bear with us as we try to reconstruct the entire page right here.Thank you very much for your understanding. A Courageous Chemtrail Pilot Exposes the Global Geoengineering Program Finally, a military pilot steps forward and completely blows the lid off the unlawful and exceedingly destructive Global Chemtrail Program.   What follows is a video which puts forth a true story about a courageous pilot who has broken ranks with his chemtrailing peers. In so doing he has […]

Iceland economics – same as the old boss

Meet the new boss; same as the old boss. In Animal Farm, George Orwell writes of the barnyard overthrowing the wicked farmer and the evolution to a new boss – with no fundamental change in the structure of users and usees. That comes to mind as I trip over a Chicago-School economist reviewing and recommending modifications to the new banking system in Iceland: Iceland may have cure to bad banking. Unsurprisingly, mainstream media, a wholly owned subsidiary of the world’s central bankers, publishes the delightful-sounding obfuscations of a credentialed preacher for their cause. Iceland, you may recall, suffered through an extreme boom-bust cycle – which is the signature achievement of all central banks. They print paper payment promises in prodigious […]

What Romance Can Tell Us About Government Regulation

by Julian Adorney from Mises Institute Dating is perhaps the freest “market” in the United States today, and its lack of regulation can teach us powerful lessons about the flaws inherent in government regulation. Most people recognize the absurdity of trying to regulate romantic relationships. What many don’t realize is that this absurdity stems not from the nature of these relationships, but from the nature of state intervention. For the same reasons that regulating dating would be counter-productive, regulating many consumer choices is unwise. Subjective Value Makes Government Regulation Unjust When it comes to dating, we see a wide range of tastes and desires. Some people love dating intellectuals. Others pursue athletes. Some women prefer wealthy, established men; others […]

more re-purposed hardwood floor fun

I continue to enjoy working with the pickup truck full of oak flooring I salvaged out of Missoula for a hundred bucks or so (as I vaguely remember). I was lucky as all-get-out that I tripped over a great deal on a plastic imitation-snap-together hardwood flooring closeout before I put two months of tedious, dirty labor into making my studio floor out of the real stuff. I fabricated a metal bar into a fixture to scrape the tongues and grooves back and forth cleaning them up so they would mate together again. I glue, then clamp them together into panels for various uses. Then I polyurethane a few coats on for a finish that pleases me. Strips of oak hardwood […]
