US Navy Conspiracy

GUAM - (AL-JAZEERA) - The US Navy fast attack submarine USS San Francisco (SSN 711) sneaked into harbor here last night under cover of darkness to try and elude international reporters having questions for the skipper of the boat regarding the submarine’s recent activities in Southeast Asia. The submarine’s smashed front-end coupled with the recent underwater earthquake and tsunami, which killed hundreds of thousands of peaceful, devout Muslims in the region has left many questions unanswered at present time. Imam Pati-Kayk Fazooli of the Holy M’Oli Mosque in Jakarta, Indonesia issued a condemnation of the US for the careless act of the submarine in causing the tsunami, “Allah will punish the Great Satan and sink all of her underwater boats of mass-destruction! I declare Fatwah on all American submarines!”

Official at the US Department Of Defense, when contacted by this reporter, only had this to say, “Hey! Fatwah THIS, Mohammed!” This story is developing into an international embaressment for the Bush regime which only recently returned to power in the US after manipulating the election using mind-control drugs. When this reporter tried to approach the submarine in drydock, he was being manhandled and brutally sent back by a huge, brutish Marine who shouted at me, “Hey! f**k off, Mohammed!.”

Below is picture that has been taken by this intrepid reporter of the tsunami causing weapon.

My Little Adventure At The Range

Well, it was with some apprehension that I took my SKS and CZ-52 to the range yesterday.  “Why the apprehension?” you may ask.  Concerns over mis-fires or non-fires and basic inexperience at using “relic” firearms.

I purchased the SKS some months ago and it was all full of cosmoline.  What a pain in the ass to clean.  All I read about was how tedious it was and how important it was to make sure the firing pin mechanism was ABSOLUTELY free of cosmoline or else the thing would go into “automatic” mode.  Then things like the gas chamber apparatus had to be free of gunk or the gun would only fire one shot at a time.  Hell, the full technical details I can not give you but suffice it to say I spent several hours cleaning the thing.  Then it sat for two months.

So I was concerned things would get gunked up again……… but I did not feel like cleaning it once more.  Since I heard the pin rattle when I shook the beast I bet on a come that it’d work but still.............that little voice was there

The CZ is another story.  Having gotten my FFL-03 license from the BATF, I can now order collectibles like the SKS, old Enfields, Mausers, and CZs direct from suppliers without having to do background checks or having them routed through an approved dealer and paying the dealer surcharges for the favor.

I ordered a CZ, supposedly in excellent condition, from AIM.  The pistol is known to have more stopping power than a 9MM but less than a 45.  Shoots a hot little bullet and all I’ve read about it indicates it is a lot of fun to shoot.

It gets to the house, I pick it up, look at it and go, “What the fuck?  How does this thing come apart?” So I dig around my bookmarks and pull up Military Surplus Rifle’s site. It showed me how to disassembled the SKS and it showed me how to take apart the CZ.  I opt not to take the CZ apart as it appears very clean.  But I can’t quite figure out why, when I pull the slide back it locks and I can’t make it go forward.  Something is not quite right and I suspect user error.  (I know, I can hear most of you now-"hey, come on!  That’s easy.  What a maroon!” )

Safety time: two things everyone needs to know about a CZ.  Never dry-fire it until you replace the firing pin.  NEVER, EVER use the de-cocking feature with a round in the chamber.  You WILL (most likely) discharge that round.  Heaven help you if you and the gun are not at the range and you do not have it pointed downrange!

So off I go.  I figure, it’s Thursday.  I’ll have the place to myself.  I get there at opening time (9 AM) and the place is packed already!

Show time!  Will my fears be founded?  Will I figure out what I am doing wrong with the CZ?  Is the SKS clean enough.

I needn’t have worried.

I decide to shoot the CZ-52 first.  Put one round in the mag, and the slide is still stuck in the “pulled back” mode.  Now, at home, I saw this little lever on the left side of the receiver area but could not get it to go down unless I used a blunt object and forced it down.  Then the slide would slam forward.  Hmmmmm.  Gotta be something going on here.

There I was, at the range, perplexed and about to be embarrassed if I did something stupid so I called the range officer over and explained how I did not want to screw the pooch by doing something wrong but I could not get the slide to go forward even after inserting a magazine.  Then it dawned on me!  “ASSHOLE, pull the slide back a bit and push that little left-hand side lever down.” Just like your 45!  Bingo. MORON!

That took care of that.  Well, too late, the Range guy was there and did just that.  I felt stupid.

I take it off safe, squeeze the trigger and BAM!!  Right on target.  Hot shit!  I am excited.  So I do it again with only one round.  BAM! again.

Now I shove 8 rounds in it and start shooting.  Rough trigger.  Couldn’t quite figure the point where pull equaled discharge. Much to my chagrin, over the course of the morning it did not fully chamber a round several times.  Why?  No clue.  One guy told me my elbows were bent so therefore I was absorbing the shock and the round would not chamber properly as I was taking away from the recoil it needed to load.  I thought, “hmmm, that’s bizarre.  Doesn’t sound right.” So I set it on a support and locked elbows.  It still happened.  That guy’s credibility is now seriously damaged.

I’m now thinking--possibly cheap ammo or bad ammo.

I also notice I am pulling to the left.  I aim for the right of the bull’s-eye and things improve.  Time to either make a site adjustment or maybe I should just put another 100 rounds through it to make sure it is not me anticipating the firing or not controlling my trigger pull correctly.

Any thoughts out there?

After 15-20 rounds I also notice my trigger finger is suffering from some sort of “strike back” coming from the trigger.  There’s a term for it but I do not know what it is.  The tip of my index finger still tingled 7 hours later.  But I kept shooting for another 40 or so rounds.  There should be a way to avoid it and I will be doing a bit of homework hunting this down on the message boards.

I set it aside and pull out the Ruger.  MY!  What a difference.  Smooth trigger pull.  Imagine, even a rookie like me could tell the difference!

It also seemed to be pulling to the left.  But didn’t the first time I shot it months ago. Hmmmmm.

Now it’s time to take out the SKS.

Visions of misfires, non-fires, etc. go through my mind.

I set up a target at 25 yards, put one round in it, pull the trigger and BAM!  I hit the target.  Hell, I better.  After all, it’s only 75 feet.  I try again.  No problem.  Obviously I did a good job cleaning the rifle. 

I feel better and more comfortable now.

I use the stripper clips and slam 10 rounds in it and start firing…. slowly at first.  One failure to chamber properly.  Another stripper clip’s worth and 1 jam.  Another stripper clip’s worth and BLAM BLAM BLAM, all 10 rounds.

Of course, I can’t see the target properly at this distance since they are not those fancy “day-glo yellow when you hit the black zone” type targets.  So I had no clue how well it shot.  The misfires I attribute to bad ammo.  Will buy better ammo and try again soon.  I had to wait for the all clear and upon getting the targets I see that almost all the shots were high of center.  Immediately I think, “HA!  I bet this baby is sighted for 100 yards and if I were to shoot at that distance, they’d be right in the zone.” I asked the R.O. and he confirmed. 

All in all a very good shooting day.

The cleaning took place soon as I got home and that’s a lot more fun to do on a cosmo-free gun.  Plus it’s good to know how to strip down a rifle and pistol.  Hell, I think I’ll clean them again today.  Then it will be off to the stores to buy targets and better ammo.  Oh, and a spotting scope.

I look forward to the next trip to the range.

Let’s Go For Broke And Shoot For Four In A Row!

This one I am absolutely for certain the asshole is a democrat.  For one, he’s Black.  (hey, the story didn’t say so until near the end but a name like Kwame gives it away.)

Plus it’s Detroit.  And it deals with a mayor living a pimp lifestyle. But let’s go for 4 in a row where the media refuses to list the party affiliation of a known liberal. 

Had a Republican done this, you can bet the little (R) would be next to his name.

Who’s gonna go snooping?

This Is Very Upsetting

And very disturbing on several levels.

Younger men, BEWARE!!!!!!

If you are at the theater or in line at the grocery store, or on an airplane trip and suddenly feel VERY attracted to that “blue hair” sitting or standing next to you, RUN AWAY!  QUICKLY!!

Get more info here and you might agree this is taking pheromone study a bit too far.

I wonder is this was somehow tied to the Pentagon studies for that sex bomb thing a couple of weeks ago.

In Iraq you could spray this on the goats and camels and the Towelheads would suddenly find these critters attractive and want to become affectionate with them.  Oh, wait, that’s already happening.  Never mind.

Now, If Only……….

What a great discovery! Now, if we could only apply this technology to some of the congress-critters we have as well as the hollyweirdos and other leftist America-hating scum in this country!!!

Then we could use them as real-life chess pieces in town-square sized chess sets.  Choosing the kings, queens, pawns would be a shit-load of fun.

Or target practice???????????  Better than bowling pins!

Capitalism Is Great, But………

I was a bit disconcerted upon reading this last night.

In a nutshell, it talks of how to make money from sure-to-come purchases of energy suppliers in the world by Chinese conglomerates.

Given that China’s economy HUMMED along at 9.5% growth last year, we all need to keep our eyes open for the greediness factor to kick in and our corporate chiefs start to sell off our companies to the commie-chinks.

Of course, the leftist fucks in this country want us to sign the Kyoto Accords (which conveniently exempts China) and had we done so we’d have been in a world of hurt, pollution wise, since that crap flows west-to-east.  Read:

Put another way, on average the Chinese use about 1.8 barrels per person a year, compared to average consumption in the United States of about 25 barrels, says Charlie Maxwell, an energy analyst with Weeden & Co. Rapid economic growth will only move China towards Western consumption levels. “Will the Chinese ever use five or seven barrels per year? That would be a huge increase,” says Maxwell.

One more factor: China uses a lot of coal, and there’s grumbling around the world from environmentalists about this because the pollutants don’t stay in China. The country will likely come under more pressure to convert its coal-fired power plants to natural gas.

Be afraid.  Be VERY afraid.

Let’s hope they go for the “infrastructure” option.  In that case, we’ll be a bit better off since our refinery building companies stand to do well.

What’s Wrong With This Picture?

Other than some of these money grabbing leftist pricks are still breathing air, two things:

1. Bill Gates looks like a slob

2.  What the hell does that other moron in the leather jacket (Bono?) have to do with world economies?  He’s just a singer in a rock ‘n roll band.  And a bad band at that (at least after the first three albums) Plus he’s dressed worse than Gates.

Fucking slobs.

Anything else?

Do We Go For Three In A Row?

Do We Go For Three In A Row?

Back a few days ago I asked you to go snooping for me to confirm whether a certain individual was of a certain political persuasion.

You did and he was.

Yesterday I asked again.

You did and he was.

Today I want to go for three in a row.  Honestly, I do not research these and then post them (guaranteeing a perfect score and skewing the results.) I go through these exercises as a matter of personal research to prove the bias in the media and to display how it is often cloaked such that most people never catch on.

The most recent leaves unsaid through the article the person’s political persuasions.  But given the fact that it is NOT mentioned and given that the request is so bloody stupid and reflects nothing more than a politician sticking the nose of government “further under the tent”, I will go out on a limb and guess he is a democrat.

Wanna bet?  Go read it. Bascially he wants gloves on cocks.  It’s incredible.  I can’t make this up!

Bottoms Out!

Hot on the heels (butt) of Allan’s post, I give you this one.  It’s all about fashion and in this case I do not object.  Do you?

If I were to see a pretty, slender young wearing this here in Spring Hill I would be very pleased, indeed.

Now, if she were so ugly that if my dog looked like her I’d have to shave its ass and make it walk backwards and/or if she were fat, I’d be filing an indecency complaint right away.

Who’s with me?

Request For Assistance

Our more astute readers may have noticed a new addition to the blog this afternoon. Below the blog logo and before the daily posts you now see a random quotation that changes every time you come here. I have picked out about thirty quotes and set them up to display randomly. I have started with some of my favorite quotes and some very good quotes by conservative politicians.

I have decided to leave the rest up to you, our readers. I’m sure you all have favorite quotes. Send them to me for inclusion in the random display. Just send them in a plain text e-mail to .

All I need is a simple format as follows:

“blah-blah-blah-quote - author”

Example:

“TB or not TB, that is the consumption - Hamlet (dying of cancer)”

Send as many as you want.

So go dig out your favorite quote from Shaw, Dickens, Churchill, Bush, Reagan, Jefferson, Franklin, Adams, O’Rourke .... whoever (within reason, of course). Let’s have fun!

Update: Yes, I’ll accept dumbass quotes from John Kerry and Bill Clinton too.
