Is this that “hindsight” people keep talking about?

For the last few weeks, I’ve been eyeing the local supply of high-cap magazines, debating whether to pour limited funds into magazines for guns I don’t own, just because it’s always good to have a stash of a scarce commodity when demand for it spikes.

In particular, the BX-25 magazines for the Ruger 10/22 were practically begging me to buy them, but I never did because I didn’t own a 10/22 and didn’t plan on ever buying one.

Well, my brother went and gave us a 10/22 for Christmas. How nice!

And by now, the whole entire national supply of BX-25 magazines is sold out, with backorder list’s a mile long.

Just my luck.

White Guilt strikes again

The liberal news organization KSL has suspended all firearms sales while they navel-gaze and try to figure out how to deal with the guilt they feel over allowing law abiding citizens who had nothing whatsoever to do with recent events in CT engage in legal commercial activity.  Via Statement on Firearms and Hunting Section | ksl.com:

Statement on Firearms and Hunting Section

Like everyone else in the country, the management of KSL is profoundly saddened by the tragedy in Connecticut. In the wake of this and other similar incidents, important questions have been raised about the ease of access to guns. These questions deserve time for careful consideration and we are confident that an appropriate resolution will be found. Accordingly, KSL has temporarily suspended firearms listings on KSL.com classifieds. We recognize that this may inconvenience responsible citizens who have used this service, but we feel this is an important step while these broader societal issues are examined.

Or, perhaps they are just helping their liberal friends in the federal government get a head-start on making it harder for Red-Staters to buy and sell firearms.

Good thing we already have an alternative! UtahGunExchange.com  Long live free markets!

The perfect desktop calendar

A couple weeks ago, I was privileged to take my 13 year old daughter to a Brian Regan show for her birthday.  That was fun and special and all — but back to my story — one of Regan’s jokes was about how he hates it when two days have to share a single square on a calendar.   He says when he sees that, he whites-out the line, draws another square, and gives the day its own square.

And sure, he was just joking (or was he?) but here, David Malki!’s gone and solved the problem!!

I kinda wish I’d ordered one before they all sold out. Oh well, maybe next year.
