  • Texas Theater's Women-Only 'Wonder Woman' Screening Is Infuriating Fragile Men [More]There's a difference between being infuriated and pointing out  hypocrisy. As for being fragile, coming from trivial "progressives" self-identifying as "too fab," that's rich.As long as sex is a legitimate factor in voluntary commercial association, you have to wonder how fragile they'd be if, say, a Christian baker refused to produce a "gay wedding" cake.In re the "exclusive" screening, I'd liked to have seen some monkeywrenching male patrons tell the theater they self-identify as women and dare them to refuse admittance. Now that it's over, there's nothing to stop a bunch of guys from doing the same thing though, with the restrooms at Alamo Drafthouse.  En masse.And while we're at it, let's see how fragile the little Too Fab bitches are over this:

  • I was reading some friends' comments online recently about how many rounds they fired in a month. They were quoting numbers like 1,500 or 2,000 each month. I knew I was nowhere near those numbers, but it made me curious to check my own shooting logs.As of May 16, my last range outing, I had fired approximately 2,875 rounds in practice this year. While not high numbers in comparison, those rounds were generally fired with a purpose in mind. I fired another 935 or so rounds in IDPA matches were I could judge the fruits of that practice.I stated earlier this year that I wanted to step up my dry fire time as well. Sadly that hasn't happened yet. I've only gotten in about 4 and a quarter hours total so far, in mostly 10 minute sessions.Self examination can be revealing. I will try to raise the numbers in all three categories this summer. [ This content originated at Musings Over a Pint ]

  • There's no denying that I simply like shooting. I find it a personally satisfying and enjoyable activity. I also like competing in practical pistol matches, and strive to do as well as I can despite bad eyes and worn out knees. My shooting goals are my own, and I'm my own competition and critic. I occasionally simply hit the range just for the fun of it, but most often I go to practice, even when I don't really feel like it.As I sat at my desk preparing to head out for my weekly visit to the indoor range this week, I wasn't feeling up to the trip. I would have to hit the interstate and run the risk of sitting traffic. I didn't know how many other shooters would be there or how competent they would be. I did know it would be hot inside. And my gun was dirty. It would be easy to just skip it.But you don't get better, at anything, by not practicing. So off I went. The session consisted of two 50 round Julie Golob...

  • The FBI has arrested a man (a school security monitor, no less) for threatening the life of U.S. Representative Martha McSally.

  • An FFL has sent me a notice alleged to come from H&K (in Germany) saying that it has ceased supplying the domestic US market as of May 1, owing to some general BS, and asking the FFL to respond to a survey giving his location and how many various types of H&K arms he has sold (period of the sales not specified). The response is to be mailed to H&K at Str. 1, 78727 Oberdorf aN. The FFL enclosed an image of the alleged notice. It sounds like BS to me, although I cannot figure out a motive.
