Scene from the range

I'll say it again: Biden's handlers, and Harris, and all the other 'ban all the things' idiots better be paying attention to sales numbers.  And class numbers.  Because all those people aren't buying guns and ammo* just to turn them in to some control-freak leftists.
*Or the upgrade parts, holsters, and all the other things.

Saturday has arrived, so,

 after a long day at work, I'm going to relax now that I've  got the data for you





Scene from the range

Know those magnetic mounts to hold a pistol under the dash as you drive?  After all the videos of mostly-peaceful protesters breaking windows and dragging people out, a lot of people are looking for those.

Why, it's like lots of people don't want to be the next Reginald Denny.

Friday evening,

things to study, etc.


Holy shit...

Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) agents tasked by fired former Director James Comey to take down Donald Trump during and after the 2016 election were so concerned about the agency’s potentially illegal behavior that they purchased liability insurance to protect themselves less than two weeks before Trump was inaugurated president, previously hidden FBI text messages show.

“[W]e all went and purchased professional liability insurance,” one agent texted on Jan. 10, 2017, the same day CNN leaked details that then-President-elect Trump had been briefed by Comey about the bogus Christopher Steele dossier. That briefing of Trump was used as a pretext to legitimize the debunked dossier, which was funded by the Democratic National Committee and the Clinton campaign and compiled by a foreign intelligence officer who was working for a sanctioned Russian oligarch.

“Holy crap,” an agent responded. “All the analysts too?”

“Yep,” the first agent said. “All the folks at the Agency as well.”

“[C]an I ask who are the most likely litigators?” an agent responded. “[A]s far as potentially suing y’all[?]”

“[H]aha, who knows….I think [t]he concern when we got it was that there was a big leak at DOJ and the NYT among others was going to do a piece,” the first agent said.

The supposed anti-racists:

Just wonderful people, aren't they?

As a general rule I've tended to sympathize with cops ,

And the 'child services worker' needs a public flogging.

This. Is. CNN.(again)

Call a black AG racist names.  Double down on it.  Then call people who object 'bully bigots'.
These people are just fucking wonderful, aren't they?

"...these collectivist pukes are more race-obsessed than the Nazi Gauleiter of 1930's Lower Swabia"

That's a quote from the Dutchman that fits with far too many leftists.  Which the NYeffing Times is very much.  This is some of their latest bullshit:The term “people of color” is already ambiguous enough with white professors, grad students, and NAACP presidents claiming to be black. But the New York Times’ racial list, a thing reeking of Nuremberg and Goebbels, put the paper in charge of deciding who is a person of color by marking them with yellow. It’s a good thing no notorious racist ideology had the same idea.

(The Times had previously published a list of members of Congress who had voted against aiding Iran’s nuclear ambitions and terrorist regime by marking Jewish members in yellow.)

Like all racist Rohrsarch charts, the Times’ racial list says more about it than about America.

The Times claimed that only 112 of the 431 House of Representatives members are people of color. It lists Rep. Rashida Tlaib as a person of color, while listing Rep. Justin Amash as white.

Tlaib's parents and Amash's father came from Arab towns and neighborhoods in Israel. Amash's mother came from Syria. They both have traditional Arab names.

How is Tlaib a person of color while Amash is white?
As Twitter observers of the New York Times racial list noted, the paper of racial record appears to invariably list Arab Christians as white, while Muslims are described as people of color.

Make your own snap caps

This idea is courtesy of the Great and Knowledgeable Og, in a post he did a few years ago, and which I cannot find; I do locate it, I'll post a link.
Simple process: take a cartridge case, and a nylon screw.  Drill the primer pocket to suitable size for the screw and thread it(I've been using #10).  Run the screw in from the front, and you're done.

It works well, and when the screw is getting battered you can just screw it in further and trim off the beaten-up face.

One of the most stupid things I've read in a long time

Considering the year, that's saying something.  Why White People Owning Dogs is Racist...
These two sentences cover the whole piece of shit if you don't want to endanger brain cells reading the whole thing:
Shortly after the Eurasian people worked so hard to train and bond with wolves, most of them were shipped off and given to Europeans.
These filthy white savages took the work and credit from the Eurasian people and branded these magnificent creatures as their own. 
Isn't that just so special?
The author of this drivel 'spends his time creating and disseminating educational materials for local schools that help kids understand why protecting animals and LGBTQIA+ rights is so important', so he's an all-round abuser of fact and children.  Because teaching kids bullshit like this IS abuse.  Which does bring up what kid of idiot teacher lets an asshat like this through the door?

Still clearing old ordnanace in a lot of places

Two bomb disposal experts from Britain and Australia died in the Solomon Islands when World War II ordnance they were helping to clear exploded, officials said Monday.
Some of that crap stays dangerous for a looong time.

I can't mow

because the dew was so heavy it might as well have rained, I'm not lifting anything heavy because the back has been having some difficulty, and it was a long past few days; I think I'm going to take it easy today.

On the ammo and components situation at the place I work: for about three weeks had no small pistol or rifle primers except Remington 6 1/2 rifle, and those were bought up in the end by people planning on using them for pistol.  Some Remington Large Rifle, which for some reason people didn't seem to want(no experience with them so can't comment), still some large rifle magnum as of yesterday.

No 9mm, .38, or .40 bullets, still have .45 and .44.  Range brass is selling about as fast as it's processed and bagged.  Rifle bullets other than .223 a fair amount, and a few 100-round boxes of 50 & 53-grain .223, most people wanting bulk in that(surprised those boxes were left). 

Powder is getting short, with most of the 'use for 9mm/.40/.45' being out right now.

Did a bit of looking around, a lot of bullets and powders are still available but you'd have to order, primers are short everywhere.  Guy who came in a week or so ago mentioned he'd bought a thousand small rifle at a gun show for $125, because he had none and couldn't find any anywhere.

I think we're out of almost every kind/brand of loading press, too.

Firearms... longer-barrel shotguns and bolt rifles for hunting are in pretty good supply, but AR patterns, AKs, shorter shotguns, are in very short supply.  Handguns selling just as fast, especially those suitable for concealed carry/self-defense.  LOTS of first-time buyers, and the 'learn to shoot' and CCW classes are full for at least the next month, some longer.

I hope the "We want to ban everything" clowns are paying attention, because all these people are not buying things just to turn them in to some .gov office. 

I don't know about the rhyming, but history

but it does seem to repeat.
How did educated, liberal society respond to such terrorism? What was the position of the Constitutional Democratic (Kadet) Party and its deputies in the Duma (the parliament set up in 1905)? Though Kadets advocated democratic, constitutional procedures, and did not themselves engage in ­terrorism, they aided the terrorists in any way they could. Kadets collected money for terrorists, turned their homes into safe houses, and called for total amnesty for arrested terrorists who pledged to continue the mayhem. Kadet Party central committee member N. N. Shchepkin declared that the party did not regard terrorists as criminals at all, but as saints and martyrs. The official Kadet paper, Herald of the Party of People’s Freedom, never published an article condemning political assassination. The party leader, Paul Milyukov, declared that “all means are now legitimate . . . and all means should be tried.” When asked to condemn terrorism, another liberal leader in the Duma, Ivan Petrunkevich, famously replied: “Condemn terror? That would be the moral death of the party!”
