Well, I’ll tell you what’s coming. The left is in a complete uproar to legalize same sex marriage, give amnesty and voting rights to the illegal aliens and also restrict our guns. They’re also clamoring for more Muslims in positions of power which means Sharia Law. And some turncoat GOP-e RINOs are working with them and helping to sway the public. Obama is going full bore on his promise to build a civilian army just as powerful as the military. For whatever stupid reason, the left thinks Obama is their Messiah. And he’s giving them everything they want. After the 2014 elections, they will be pushing wall-to-wall for an amendment allowing Prince Obama a third term. They will do all in their corrupt power to see that the Demoncrats win big in 2014. Obama is delivering for them so they will get the democrats the majority in both houses in 2014 him elected again in 2016, then it’s Katy bar the door. America will be doomed.

He must be impeached for high crimes and treason and impeached NOW before 2014!! The demoncrats must be stopped in their treasonous tracks!!

Another thing, Obama has demonstrated over and over again that the constitution does not apply to him. He violates it daily and no one in congress dares do anything about it. NO BACKBONE, NO BALLS!

He and his demoncrat minions will not give up easily. Even if they can’t get the constitution amended, they’ll just ignore it, twist it, or otherwise go around it just as they are every day on a host of other issues, and the GOP-e will refuse to lift a hand. One way or another Obama will stay in office and set himself up as a dictator. History repeats itself.

Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. Our children are not born with the knowledge or will to fight for freedom. It must be instilled within them. Ask yourself why the left has removed the real lessons of history from our education curriculum and why and for how long have they been preaching to them about the glorious peaceful utopian world of borderless, godless docile socialism. No borders, no nations, no God, no sin, no guns, no war, no violence, equal wealth distribution, no worry, no hunger, no profit mongers, etc, etc, etc.

Their time has arrived. An entire generation has been indoctrinated.

Never, ever surrender your guns!! It’s coming.

I have cut back on shooting and am using the cheap russkie surplus when I do.

I may look to black powder to scratch my itch if they don’t ban that LoL

It may be time to buy a lead furnace, some molds, and learn to make percussion caps.

The 8th annual TCMS is coming up in just over a month.
I will be shooting 7.62x54R and 5.45x39 Russian.

Maybe a some .22

It might just come down to it. Especially if in 2014 the house goes to the Leftists. You’re right about pushing Obama going for a third term. That has already been floated by the commies.

It’s 1930’s Germany all over again Boss.
“You have nothing to fear! Honest!”
And yet, the signs wee all there despite the attempts to hide it and allay fears.
The screaming came later.
By then, people were too afraid to speak.

Stay focused, stay succinct, be polite.

7.62x39 is coming down.
I think it can be had for $300 the case vice $600 a couple months ago.
Still, it is over priced. it should be $100 the case.
I am shooting what is cheap, and even then I will be frugal.

If you want to feed that beast, it’s yours to shoot.

7.62 X 39 is the diet.. crappy cheap brands preferred.

It’s a Yugo.. it’ll eat crap for weeks and smile about it.

I’m amazed they didn’t hurt anybody else. That many round fired by DHS, they could have injured more innocent bystanders than the bombers did in the first place.

Well, you know.. in recent years the shooting has perhaps become secondary to the socializin'...

This year at Dietz range we wont be "running our own bench", as I recall that range to be fair
strict and rigid. That's kind of off-putting to a degree.. at least for me.. after having gotten
used to a degree of autonomy in such things.. like at your river or some of the less regulated ranges.

And my south fence-line. ;-)

Anyway, my point is that we are not necessarily needing to burn up a thousand rounds each to have a good time.

Well, I am in agreement that the social aspect has superseded the raw “let’s put some lead down range” aspect, and that is just fine.

I am certain Elroy would be cool with that.

That’s the stuff.

But a bit pricey. I say true, ratty-assed old surplus ammo
is filet mignon for that gun. It truly does not care.
That’s one of the reasons I selected it.

Mylife usually comes up with amazing deals out of the blue
and he knows what kind of feed that thing will gnaw.

Agree it’s a monster but Bush didn’t see it coming. He proved his bonafides in protecting the homeland but it wasn’t because of the DHS that he was successful, and he knows it. And if you recall, Democrats were the most keen on doing this and that the TSA for instance have government employees as screeners. That it not be contracted out. Bottom line is they wanted more government union members and dues.

How could Bush have NOT seen this coming?

Mylife is right, picking it up is 'WAY cheaper. Ammo shipping be exorbitant what with the regs and declarations and whatall.

I've already got one envelope fulla money for Mylife in my ammo box.

He noted that is “roughly 1,000 rounds more per person.”

“Their officers use what seems to be an exorbitant amount of ammunition,” he said.

Has Chaffetz never been to a gun range? 1000 rounds is not an exorbitant amount by any stretch of the imagination. I fire about 50 - 100 rounds when I go to the range to train. So 1000 rounds would last me about 10- 20 days.

Do we know when and how the rounds are used? Is it used for practice and training or only in the line of duty? If it's practice ammo, then 1000 rounds is easily understood. If it's used only in the line of duty for self defense, then 1000 rounds is not just exorbitant but also unbelievable.
