Range day

and was able to test the modified .22 ammo. Got to the range and there was a light easterly breeze, and it stayed that way until just after I finished the testing part of things, and then picked up some. Need to shoot some pictures, then I'll post on the test.

Tried something else on some .38 Special ammo, pictures to come on that, too.

In the meantime, here's another reason I usually refer to them as 'palisimians':
A former Palestinian intelligence officer has reportedly been sentenced to death after it was revealed he had sold his home to Jews.

Muhammad Abu Shahala, who worked for the Palestinian Authority reportedly confessed under torture to selling his home in Hebron on the West Bank to a Jewish man.
Yeah, we need to give these people lots of our money and a 'country of their own'...

The dog can text?

That clown Obama appointed to the EPA 'apologized'; as expected, it boils down to "I'm really sorry you found out about this, now will you please go away and let us destroy energy production?"

Speaking of palisimians and related stuff, you've got to read this. Hint: sex with a dead wife: approval of.

The original Chief Clown of TSA says us being so upset with the molesters, thieves and Constitution-violators is 'dangerous to security'.
“I think TSA gets all the abuse for frustration about a system, that was created in 2001 with the full support of both parties of the United States, that no longer works as well as it did in 2001 and needs to be significantly changed and it is not the fault of the officers at the front line who are following their instructions,” he said. “It is the policy that needs to be changed and that is what I argue.”
I'd argue that it didn't work well to start with and has degraded since; when you have idiots telling the pilot "You can't have those nail clippers", or a US Marshall "I don't care if you have a gun, you can't have a knife on the airplane," you have- at BEST- people following idiotic rules; at worst you have dirtbags also abusing their authority just because they can.

4) What does it say about the state of the nation that I was moderately surprised to find that some humorless functionary hadn't appended my name to the no-fly list for no better reason than my constant harping on the fact that the TSA is a worthless sack of bastards who accomplish no function other than turning millions of taxpayer dollars into annoyance and frustration?
I don't have nearly the audience Tam does, and both times I've flown I was nervous about catching some crap for the same reasons; another reason TSA needs its collective ass kicked. People should NOT have to worry about being effed-over just because they expressed an opinion that one of the employees is offended by.

Sheila Jackson Lee(NSD-TX), one of the most bigoted socialist fools in Congress, wants more:
A new proposal by Texas Democratic Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee threatens to give the Department of Homeland Security the power to spy on Congress and the Judicial Branch.
Congress and the Judiciary aren't happy. Join the club, dumbasses, WE don't care for the crap you keep doing either.

Oh, if you missed that in the past, ATF and DHS and so on also allowed grenade parts to be smuggled into Mexico:
The administration officials then put together a plan: They secretly intercepted Kingery’s grenade parts after he ordered them online, marked them with special paint and gave them back to him. Then, they allowed him to take those grenade parts into Mexico. ATF was going to try to find his weapons factory there — even though the U.S. government and its federal law enforcement agencies have no jurisdiction in Mexico — with the apparent goal of building a bigger case against Kingery.

ATF agents had planned to work with Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials — who, unlike ATF agents who ultimately report to Attorney General Eric Holder, report up the chain to Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano.

The emails show ATF agents were aware they might lose track of Kingery while they allowed him to transport the grenade parts into Mexico. The emails also show ATF agents knew that the grenades could end up exploding and killing innocent people if they proceeded with the plan. That didn’t stop the Obama administration’s ATF from allowing the grenades to walk.

“Even in a post blast, as long as the safety lever is recovered we will be able to identify these tagged grenades,” an official wrote in one email.
Translation: "Even if a bunch of people get killed, we think we can still use this."

And guess who'll be running the Baltimore School of Law(at least the 'Perjury, how to' section)?
The DOJ official is the same Holder deputy who falsely told Congress that neither the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives nor any part of the Department of Justice ever allowed illicit firearms to “walk” across the U.S.-Mexico border — even as contrary facts emerged from the investigation into Operation Fast and Furious.
In February, Weich denied the Justice Department’s involvement in another scandal. The Daily Caller learned that the DOJ had failed to arrest and prosecute several indicted financial criminals because of an alleged bribery scheme. Weich said the DOJ had no knowledge of any bribery.

It should be noted that even with the attention on them from Gunwalker, BATFEIEIO is still ignoring the law in other areas:
“Despite what the law clearly states, I’ve heard from several Alaska gun shop owners who are being hassled by the ATF,” said Rep. Young. “As I have told the gun shop owners, the ATF has no right to either copy or remove their records and if any attempt is made, they should refuse it.”
What think you: agents with bad training, or agents ignoring the law because someone told them to go get copies of the records?

The latter, of course. The sad news is, that of the first five gun shops contacted by the field agents, FOUR of them allegedly turned over their records.
