Have been enjoying reading the 2A Blog Bash website and hearing about all the goings-on at the NRA Convention. I went to one of those years ago with Dad when it was in KC at the old convention center downtown and even then, 30 + years ago, I had a great time.
Ok, back to studying for me....
Pics and announcement over at Snowflakes in Hell – I have been extremely happy with the Rugers I have owned and shot over the years and I will be getting at least one of these.
Update: Tam has some good points over at her site regarding Ruger and the company being more than a little late to the EBR party. Part of my enthusiasm for the Ruger is that my gun pimp buys through Davidson's and besides getting a hell of a good deal on them through the pimp, Davidson's stands behind what they sell. Cheesy Tapco stuff would come off, replaced by one of the many Magpul sets in the closet, keep the Troy goodies, etc. Troy Industries must be happy - their stuff comes on a S&W AR and now the Ruger.
I saw a link on NRO this morning about Vonnegut and his short story “Harrison Bergeron” and it brought back memories of reading it in high school. Apparently, they have made a movie and it is showing at the Seattle International Film Festival in a couple of weeks.
Here is a link to the short story for your reading pleasure: Harrison Bergeron
Do they even let kids read stuff like this anymore or is it considered “extremist literature”?
Frank W. James has a great post up over at his place on Corn Planting 101 – good stuff.
He has been chomping at the bit the past couple of weeks to get his corn in the ground and the weather has not been cooperating. Great information and pics for those that want to know where the food on their tables comes from. It requires a lot of hard work and patience.
