Flying Lessons

There is a first time for everything

You know, if you combine the Ruger MK-series (MK I, MK II and MKIII) it is probably one of the most-owned and most-shot handguns in the world.  Add to that group the Ruger 22/45 platform, and the numbers get even bigger.

Every new shooter that I have ever trained, including my wife and kids, has started on my stainless Ruger MK II with the 5” bull barrel.

They are relatively inexpensive guns, very rugged, easy to use and teach on, and you can shoot one all say long for under $10.  One of those and a Ruger 10/22 are all you need for an entire weekend of plinky goodness.

So why has it taken this freakin’ long for someone to come up with a decent, serviceable holster for them?

The wait is over.  Black Dog Machine out of Middleton, Idaho has them for sale.  My order went in today.


You’re welcome.  Hat tip to Unc who saw it first here.


Yes You Can!

International Wealth Transfer…

May 11, 2010

Because it’s not just the lazy asses underprivileged in the U.S. that want to steal need the results of your labor.

From Fox News:

World Health Organization Moving Ahead on Billions in Internet and Other Taxes

The World Health Organization is moving full speed ahead with a controversial plan to impose billions of dollars in global consumer taxes on such things as Internet activity and everyday financial transactions like paying bills online — while its spending soars and its own financial house is in disarray

A bunch of technocrats, bureaucrats and academics playing “Do as I say, not as I do.”

The aim of its taxing plans is to raise "tens of billions" of dollars for WHO that would be used to radically reorganize the research, development, production and distribution of medicines around the world, with greater emphasis on drugs for communicable diseases in poor countries…

Notice that the money would not go to those “in need” – instead it would go to, (surprise!!!), the WHO for “research, development, production and distribution” of drugs.  Because under what’s left of capitalism, no other entity is doing those things right now, and a quasi-government organization can always do a better, more efficient, economical and ethical job than a private company.

In effect, the plan amounts to a pharmaceutical version of the U.N.-sponsored climate-change deal that failed to win global approval at Copenhagen last December. If implemented as the experts suggest, it could easily involve the same kind of wealth transfers as the failed Copenhagen summit, which will send $30 billion a year to poor nations, starting this year…

Shit, they’re not even denying the wealth transfer goals anymore.  If they can’t get their hands on your “wealth” one way, they will try another – and another, until they are successful.

This is the end game of all socialists – not to help struggling people raise themselves up on the socio-economic ladder, but to ensure equal poverty and squalor across national boundaries.

Almost casually, the panel’s report notes that the fundraising effort would involve global changes in legal structures — and policing. As the report puts it: "Introducing a new tax or expanding an existing tax may require legal changes, nationally and internationally and ongoing regulation to ensure compliance."

“Global changes in legal structures and policing…”

Bring it Bitches.  And when you do, you’d better not bring it weak.

One of these days the talking will be over and the citizens of the United States will have to decide whether or not they want to remain free.
