trying to counter the evils being perpetrated on our country. Having seen such an obviously inept judge sworn in to SCOTUS, I feel more than a little defeated today. We aren't represented by the elected anymore other than a handful that understand the concepts of 'representation'. Most understand 'servitude' quite well though not in the sense that they are 'servants'. Most seem to think that we are here to provide a power base for their careers and further trepidations on us are completely within the 'rules of engagement' that they follow.
I am taking the weekend from the interwebs of politics; surfing online comics, playing with rifles and pistols and basically IGNORING THE GOVERNMENT!
My recoil pad FINALLY came in today(been a week and half since I ordered it. Not Marks fault, I chose to send it USPS, Silly me.) With the pad I also ordered a spare Sight leaf that I modified for an aperture sight.(I am keeping the original along with any other parts that I am changing out for "IF" I sell later down the road.) Looks like I will be making a range trip after all this week since now I need to make sure that everything is lined up correctly. I don't like having any weapon unsighted even if its not my 'goto weapon'. Who knows when it may be the goto weapon or backup gun in a pinch.
On a side note I spent most of this afternoon reading The Box 'o Truth Learned much and unlearned more. For all the world I have been taught that the .40 was a better round than the 9mm yet his tests seem to indicate that they are fairly equal. Sometimes better in one case, sometimes worse in others. The .45 is still the consistent winner hands down in Handguns with the 7.62X25 coming up as one hell of a follow up. Still like he says,"a pistol is a pistol and a rifle is a rifle" Guess there is a reason I prefer the rifles over handguns. Still not a bad idea to have one and be good with it since its hard to 'carry' a rifle in today's world. Fact of the matter is there isn't any consistent 'show stopper' and its not the rounds or the gun that make the difference. A guy with a .22 and 20 round magazine can out shoot a guy with a .45 and 7 rounds if he knows how to hit his targets. Still I would rather have a .45 or .40 when it comes down to anything where I would need a gun (other than combat then I am going with any round that starts with 7 or .3 depending on metric or English measurements. Semi-auto preferred thank you)
On a personal note: Granbehbie is starting to stand on her own, occasionally lets on that she is starting to talk, and still has a fascination for chasing cats around the yard.(she is getting quite fast too, the cats are so in trouble when she starts walking/running. LOL)
