Visions of Obama

I thought I was depressed after reading Mark Steyn.

I wish I drank.

My buddy Dave stopped by to chat this evening.

He observed that you can tell a lot about how an election went by how many people are buying guns.

SRO at my favorite gun store today. Reloading components for metallic cartridges have doubled in price since summer.

I contributed to my retirement plan. About five hundred rounds; it will not be so easy to confiscate as what is left in my 401(K). The two folks in front of me at the register never owned a firearm in their life. One was buying a .22 rifle and pump 12 gauge. He had his kids with him. The other was buying a recycled Sig 9mm and three different varieties of ammo for it. He asked my opinion on long term storage* for ammo.

I'm going to hit the Left's Most Hated Retailer tomorrow morning for another bulk box of 12 gauge shells myself. Maybe a box of 16, too; I don't own one, but barter goods never hurt.

It was quiet in the store, for all the people there were.

* GI ammo cans. You can find them at surplus stores and gun shows. Don't buy them if they are badly dented or have flaking rust. If they have surface rust, hit the bad spots with crocus cloth and/or paint them over with Rustoleum (tm) spray paint. Make sure the rubber seal on the lid is good. Put a table spoon of clay cat litter inside cloth bag or a pouch made from a segment of discarded nylon stocking inside with the ammo to be stored and you are good for years.

I drink.

It's not doing any good.

It could take me a while to forgive you for this, Gerard. Not to mention quite a bit of alcohol.

(My sympathies, Cathy.)

Nice post.
We are the underground now.

Anyone got any acquaintances who used to run guns from the USA to the IRA?

Strange how things sometimes work out. Maybe the people who were fighting against the UK government will soon be doing it again - this time against our Muslim overlords.

I once read a story set in the 2030s or so, in which was mentioned the British Liberation Front. I thought it was over the top then. I don't now.
