Boomershoot Update

Managed (finally!) to secure one of these bad boys for the annual Boomershoot ULD drawing:

It’s the Savage 110 Apex Predator XP:  Accu-Trigger, .308 Win, 20″ heavy (threaded) barrel, camo stock.  I can’t wait to get it to the range and sight it in.

That’s not the scope it will come with, by the way;  I’m still a little undecided between a Vortex 5-25x50mm or a Meopta of similar magnification.  It all depends on how much more I can raise in the next couple weeks.

Which [segue alert]  reminds me:  $25 per entry, no limit on the number of entries, checks or PayPal.  Please be generous so that I can actually afford to go to the abovementioned event, not to mention afford the .308 ammo (!!!! holy balls !!!!).    I will send all unfired ammo, if any remains, to the lucky winner as well.

Also:  for those who have already entered, please send me yer email addy via kim – at – kimdutoitdotcom so I can notify you if you’ve won, and keep it anonymous.

Ah, Hell

Sarah dun a goodie.

It’s not from her, but from a movie she just watched:

“You can’t walk [away from] your own story.”

And if you want to watch Rango  (again) after reading her post, then let that be your movie recommendation for the weekend.

I just wish I knew whether this is my own story… I need to get to the range again soon.

Apologies

Turns out that my “Example” post of yesterday was based on “false news”, i.e. a crock of shit.  Mea culpa — whenever there are no names or specific addresses given in an article, it should be a dead giveaway but I missed or ignored that.

The problem with this stuff is that after Ruby Ridge, Waco and gawd knows how many other instances of no-knock invasions of people’s homes by the various law enforcement entities (SWAT, FBI, DEA, DHS and all the other alphabet agencies), shit like the above can get traction and fool the gullible — in this case, people like me — and our natural suspicion / hatred of rogue government activities makes us patsies.

I promise to be more circumspect in future.

“The idea that everyone must bow and do pointless things to make others feel comfortable regarding COVID has long expired.”
