Monday Gun Post

To start with, Joe Huffman used a Claire Wolfe quote on his blog last week.

America is at that awkward stage. It’s too late to work within the system, but too early to shoot the bastards.

An alert reader left a comment to let him know that she had since amended herself and has stated,

I can no longer think of any moral reason not to “shoot the bastards.”

So Joe, being the enterprising fella he is put forth a number of questions about ‘The Hunting of Bastards’.

And I, being the affable smartass that I am, have answered his questions on ‘Bastard Hunting’ in his comments section.

Enjoy and feel free to update with your own rules.


Ravenwood went and got just plain vicious on a couple of anti-gun news stories.

1. How many cliches and lies can you fit into one article?

2. Gun grabbers going after shooting ranges


I was finally able to see my 90% completed Boomershoot rifle last Friday when I was dropping off parts for the stock to extend my necessary ‘Length of Pull’ to almost 15 inches.

I did not think to bring my camera however, because the smith had just gotten the barrel in from Hart the last time I was there and still had to ream and hone the chamber and put threads on it, along with bead-blasting the exterior, fitting it to the receiver, etc, so I did not think it would be anywhere near as done as it was.

Let me just tell you all that it is a thing of beauty. I wanted to take it home with me right then, even though the smith had not yet gotten the trigger from Jewell or put the bolt back together yet.

If it shoots half as good as it looks, I’ll be a very happy man.

    Who’s the gunsmith? I live in your neck of the woods and will be doing up a custom bolt gun soon.

    I think your only error is in assuming all of “the Bastards” are on the Left, Kid. I’ve always figured Big Gummint Bastardy was a kind of an equal opportunity thang, mahself. 😉

    Nice rifle. Ooh – shiny!
