Interesting. Go to the MAIG website: http://www.mayorsagainstillegalguns.org/html/home/home.shtml Do a search (upper left). You get bounced to http://search1.nyc.gov/
So, Bloomberg’s group is using the NYC government search appliance. Now, the NYS constitution states: “[N]o county, city, town, village or school district shall give or loan any money or property to or in aid of any individual, or private corporation or association, or private undertaking”.
Looks like a winner for the PS Vita. Reviews for the demo version were very good.
Moving. It’s been my experience that men (real men, not douchebag man-children) focus on what they find beautiful in women.
Clown Shoes “Chocolate Sombrero” – chocolate stout with a touch of vanilla extract, ancho chile, and cinnamon. The spices add just a little kick, but not at all overbearing. It was highly recommended, and my initial skepticism is totally erased. Warming, good mouth feel, good stout body, and an tasty aroma. 9% ABV.
I can’t recommend it enough.
The anti-2A lobby and the media have done a good job portraying we gun owners as one of several types:
• The hunter. These people are “okay”. However, this type is starting to be attacked as well.
• The sportsman/skeet/clay shooter. These people are “okay”, as long as they are using a single shot shotgun.
• The self-defense gun owner. These people are “crazy”.
• The gun owner that shoots for fun. These people are “crazy”.
Now, they also break us down into these categories:
• Right wing, old, racist white guy.
• Drug dealer/gangbanger black guy.
• Drug dealer/gangbanger Latino.
• Crazy prepper guy.
• Crazy survivalist guy.
I know many of us don’t want to promote that we own guns. I believe, though, that some of us need to be heard. We need to show to the public that we are your next door neighbor, your doctor, your kids’ teacher, your mechanic, your accountant. We are normal, well-adjusted folks that believe in the Second Amendment.
Too often we gun folks attack each other. We need to bring it to an end – we’re in a real fight, and we can’t be split. You can bet your last round that the anti-2A are trying to divide and conquer and we can not give them more ammunition. Beyond that, we need to bring others that may be ambivalent to our side. We can’t do that by allowing the media to continue to spin the negative images of us.
I am trying to find a way to start to evangelize this. Perhaps use the #IAAGO on social media sites when making a stance on something. I certainly evangelize when I talk with friends – well, perhaps proselytize is a better term, as I am trying to sway, convince, and convert.
I’m looking for more ideas. Thoughts?
I own an M&P Shield, and I recently had trigger work done on my XDM 9C. Those two carry guns made the trigger in my M&P 9C feel less than stellar – no crisp reset, a little gritty, a little mushy. After about 1000 rounds through the M&P 9C without any improvement, I figured it was time to buy the highly recommended kit.
Went in easily enough – if you’ve done any work on guns before, it will be a simple task. The Apex install videos are also very good.
The kit increased the trigger weight a bit, smoothed out the action, and it now has a clear tactile and audible reset. I have not yet shot it, so I’ll have to report back later this week (or perhaps I’ll swing by the range tonight). I have high hopes based on dry firing, though.
