10 Amazon Warehouses Hit With COVID-19

We are avoiding Meat-Space in droves. Little towns, big towns, grand malls … they are all hollow echoes of their ever-so-recent past. THE MASSES have discovered online ordering. We don’t touch keypads a hundred others have touched. We do not handle paper money a hundred others have recently handled. We aren’t gripping shopping cart handles a hundred others have grabbed in the last two days. ONLINE ORDERING HAS EXPLODED. Big box stores were right on top of it. Minor chains were hot on their tails. Mom-N-Pop were right behind them, sometimes in front. Darn near everybody whose income HAD depended on floor traffic have come up with ways to deliver their services (and get paid for them) while minimizing virus […]

your first home defense firearm

I published the information below a year ago, but am refreshing it now as many people wake up to the need for providing their own self-defense, family-defense and home-defense. There are many serious, fatal accidents looming when untrained, inexperienced people purchase firearms just cuz they suddenly recognize the utility and are able to purchase a gun. Single-shot guns are the simplest of all. The user places a round in the chamber when they are ready to shoot something, aim and shoot. The utility is limited and not a great choice for defense. Revolvers are also straightforward in that novices can readily see whether they are loaded or not, reducing some of the possibilities for negligent discharges, damage and death. […]

The Oregon Standoff

Understanding LaVoy Finicum’s Death  and the Management of BLM Land by permission from Ammo.com When one talks about the Bundy Family, the first thing that springs to mind is the standoff in Nevada in 2014. However, perhaps even more important is the standoff and occupation at Oregon’s Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in 2016. Indeed, the two events are often conflated because Ammon Bundy is the son of Cliven Bundy, the man who stood up to the federal government over “grazing fees” on Bureau of Land Management land. The occupation was a highlight for both the militia and the sovereign citizen movement as well as proponents of states’ rights. The main argument from those occupying the land is that the federal government is mandated by law to turn over […]

mass shooting today in Fort Worth church

Less graphic than your basic TV or movie fare, but real dang clear on what happened. A thug walked into a church, pulled out a shotgun and started killing Christians. The mass shooting part – well, that was the shooter’s intent, but a concealed carry church goer reacted quickly, accurately and effectively… perhaps with divine accuracy, eh? The second victim of this mass shooting was the mass shooter himself … a third is in critical condition as of the time this report came to me. Thanks to a man taking responsibility for his and his community’s safety, there was no fourth, fifth, sixth… etcetera victim. When seconds count, police are only minutes away. Watch the top of the screen […]

banashing bad dreams

Occasionally I will have dreams several nights in a row where my life is in extreme danger but the firearm I have does not match the ammunition available, I am unable to deploy not-quite available guns, am grossly out-gunned or some other failing. These dreams stop coming as soon as I take some time during the day, go to a range, and do some shooting … handgun, shotgun, rifle … what I shoot doesn’t seem to matter. Defenseless dreams disappear. Recently my wife and I seeemed to be on a streak of unpleasant dreams that did not involve shooting. They just weren’t good interpersonally or physically, and left us lying awake for longer than sweet dreams would have. Even the […]

assault on weapons missed by a mile

If you listen to lamestream media or political beasts, banning and collecting every AR-15 will make the world a safe place. That is worse than incorrect. Here I will focus on one aspect of the ridiculousness. The FBI released its 2018 crime statistics – see the table below. ALL RIFLES, included the horrid AR-15, account for 2.9% of the homocides. The FBI did not single out any particular style of rifle, but if they did, the hugely versatile and popular modern sporting rifle would not likely be a blip on the stats board. Why in heaven’s name would it be such a target for the gun banners? Because for over 40 years it has proven itself to be an effective […]

Ruby Ridge anniversary

Think you can move into the woods and just be left alone.  Randy Weaver and his family thought so. Gardening, canning … doing all the right homestead stuff, yet the JBTs wanted him to infiltrate a group they thought was dangerous.

Arm Thy Neighbor

Ignatius Piazza lived in a very high-end Silicon Valley neighborhood when a carload of thugs rolled through shooting the place up for amusement. The terrifying moments of defenselessness inspired him to arm himself, train, and eventually create his own training academy, Front Sight Firearms Training Institute. It also inspired him to purchase a large number of inexpensive, utilitarian, peasant-friendly semi-auto carbines that he could share with his neighbors when the time finally came that they wished to participate in self- and community defense. Matt Bracken suggests we all consider that neighborly, foresighted approach as part of our preparing strategies. In my neck of the woods there are probably more guns and ammo than food stockpiles. Nevertheless, the one sentence that […]

Bowling Alone

How Washington Has Helped Destroy American Civil Society and Family Life from Ammo.com Church attendance in the United States is at an all-time low, according to a Gallup poll released in April 2019. This decline has not been a steady one. Indeed, over the last 20 years, church attendance has fallen by 20 percent. This might not sound like cause for concern off the bat. And if you’re not a person of faith, you might rightly wonder why you would care about such a thing. Church attendance is simply a measure of something deeper: social cohesion. It’s worth noting that the religions with the highest rate of attendance according to Pew Forum have almost notoriously high levels of social […]

good Kiwis vs bad Kiwis

Whether it was a staged event rather than real has been debated on the Internet, but the Christchirch shooting event was all the excuse ruling elites needed to pass draconian gun bans and an incredibly expensive program they call “gun buyback”. As one commentator notes, the government never owned the affected guns, thus cannot buy them back. Worse than the semantic failure is the program’s realities. The politicians rushed their anti-gun legislation through in a few days – thereby avoiding organized resistance. It was unsurprisingly already written up when the ‘trigger event’ took place, though the legislators don’t mention that part. Millions of guns costing a thousand dollars each were instantly disallowed with gun owners offered $350 for each during […]

20 gauge youth pump as #1 home defense weapon choice

8 gauge shotgun An intelligent man watching his wife at 60% of his muscle, meat and bone shoulder, hold and fire my lovely Mossberg 590A Special Purpose would find it disproportionate. In simpler terms, “This ain’t right”. Simply holding it up is far more effort for her than he. Then the 12 gauge recoil kicks in. Mister 200-pound tough guy is moved slightly by it. If he is fortunate enough to have a cute 110-pound mate, it rocks her world. Idiots and those of frail egos are amused. Intelligent men see lack of balance. For proportion Mr Weak Ego should track down an 8-gauge shotgun and fire off a dozen rounds. He might be getting the point somewhere along the […]

New Zealand fakeout

How do you know a staged event from a real one? When the perpetrators pull out all the stops to hide evidence of the event from the public. No further proof is needed, but tons of it is out there. Over the next couple of weeks the evidence from genuine investigative reporters and analysts will come out. Use your head. Much of what you hear, see and read will be fake. Trust is earned. So is distrust. A teenager faces 14 years in prison for re-posting the New Zealand mosque shooting The teen faces two charges: one of sharing the live-stream and a second for posting a photograph of one of the mosque’s attacked with the message “target acquired” along […]
