Presented without comment

Couple Reveals Child's Gender 5 Years Too Late.

Because every time I try to comment, I get a bit apoplectic right about the time I hit "What the hell, you self-absorbed twit?"


If my experience is any indication

You're doing alright so far, Mr Potterfield.

"We will be the best-run business in America."

MidwayUSA's management is dedicated to a culture of excellence, and it shows.  Their customer service in all of my interactions with them has been stellar, they exceed all their promises, and year after year are successful both financially, and as a part of the community.

Keep it up!

Out goin blastin

It's 48 and cloudy, an odd thing for January in Utah. However, it means that not only is USPSA on like Donkey Kong (they shoot rain or shine. We come tough out here) but I've got no excuse for not being there. Quick shower, grab the 1911s and a happy pack, and I'm off to the gun races.

Hope everybody enjoys their day.

I never thought I'd say it

But I have to agree with something Joan Peterson said. (Link goes to Weerd.  I'm not feeding the harpies and trolls any traffic.)

They don’t like victims….It’s odd that they don’t see how failure to do something has resulted in more victims.
She's right.  We don't like victims, or at least, I don't.  And failing to do something DOES result in more victims.  That's why me and my tribe strive to help victims heal, and raise themselves up above victimhood.

This is the ideal outcome for anyone who has been made a victim.  It has nothing to do with her buying a gun or becoming a gunnie.  It has nothing to do with her suddenly having all the answers.  If you read her blog, you'll very quickly realize, she doesn't.  She's still learning, and hopefully will be for the rest of her life.  What she does have, though, is confidence, and a iron-hard determination to never be a victim again, nor allow her children to be victims.

And that makes her very, very strong.  And her strength scares the shit out of perpetual victims.

I may have to try this Battlefield 3

In a rare post, not only does pdb sing it's praises, he also puts up a video that makes it look like a hell of a lot of fun.

And fun is what games are still all about, kids.

The perfect shot

Some days, luck is on your side.


Quote of the day

From the Queen of Snark her own self, in comments here...

Remember: When a masochist begs "Hit me!" a real sadist would say "No."
Within context, it's true, for the most part.  The only reason the antis have any traffic at all is because of the gunnies keeping an eyeball on them.

Without context, it made me snerk.


Well that was interesting

You guys know I love a good cover tune, especially when it represents a unique take on the song.  I was pleasantly surprised the other day when I was bumping around the internet and found this gem.

Definitely different.  Kinda fun.  If you have any favorite covers, share em, I'd love to give em a listen!

Movie Review: Tucker & Dale vs Evil

Disclaimer:  I'm a big fan of slasher flicks.  Scream, Friday the 13th, you name it, I like it.

Now, with that out of the way...  Tucker & Dale vs Evil recently showed up on Netflix Instant.  I'd heard about it, and that it was worth the time, so I fired it up.

The three word review:  They weren't lying.

What do you get when you turn a standard "College kids in the woods" slasher flick on it's ear?  You get Tucker and Dale, and some excellent comedy.  It's College Kids vs Hillbillies, and whatever crazy that can happen, probably will.  Don't expect much by way of plot (it's a slasher flick, and you expect plot?) or character development, and don't watch it around folks who're opposed to violence, gore, and a bit of language (again, slasher flick, turned up to 11.)

But if you like slashers, by all means, give it a view.

Every day, I pray for peace

Weerd asks, and I deliver.

On top is my wife's XDM .40.  On bottom is my ATI Commander.  Two of many, the primary two we choose to keep us safe.

I carry, not because I'm afraid, but so that I am equipped if someone tries to make me fear.
