Happy New Year Everyone

     I would like to take the time to thank each and everyone who has stopped by a viewed and commented on my humble little blog. To date, I have had 8323 views and have 33 Outstanding Americans and a Canadian or two (LMFAO @ Kimber and her man) and a few other countries, if I don't know which country you are from, I'm sorry to not have recognized your country. They have decided that my points of view are worthy enough to have clicked the follow button. Once again, thank you all!!!

     2012 is gone and we are rolling into 2013. The Mayans were off on their end-of-the-world date, American made the foolish mistake of re-electing the current president, and by god, we celebrate the birth of a Kardashian child more than our men and women who are serving in our military, throughout the world. What does 2013 hold in store for us? Probably a complete collapse of our society due to ridiculous tax rate hikes, I know for sure if the new AWB that Sen. Frankenstein wants to pass is implemented,

(Training Time-Out) BITCH!!!!, get your finger off the trigger until you are sure of your target and willing to destroy it. Didn't you learn anything from a firearm safety course?

Secure from the TTO:

there will be a Civil War, to say the least. I really hope my prediction is wrong, I really do. I will close this post with some quotes to ponder:

"The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants"
“For a people who are free, and who mean to remain so, a well organized and armed militia is their best security.”
“When a man assumes a public trust, he should consider himself as public property.”
"All warfare is based on deception. Hence, when able to attack, we must seem unable; when using our forces, we must seem inactive; when we are near, we must make the enemy believe we are far away; when far away, we must make him believe we are near. Hold out baits to entice the enemy. Feign disorder, and crush him"
"To fight and conquer in all your battles is not supreme excellence; supreme excellence consists in breaking the enemy's resistance without fighting"
"The clever combatant imposes his will on the enemy, but does not allow the enemy's will to be imposed on him"

New Years Eve 2012

Well this is what I ended up doing on my New Years Eve. Better do it now before they ban rice or tax the hell out of it.

WOW! Where has everything gone? 300 AAC Blackout Case Prep.

     Wow! Where has everything gone? Seems like there is a gun ban coming around the corner, being sarcastic here so bear with me. Well my mission today was to go out and see what I could find locally for reloading 300 AAC Blackout at some of the hidden places that most metro-sexuals don't know about. One place is a restaurant supply store that has a reloading shop in the back. These people were a frequent site at one of the two gun shows we have locally. Well the family and I arrive and see the sign.
We arrived at 1230, and their sign said they closed at 1300, well the doors were locked and after looking in the tinted windows, seems they aren't in business anymore. Another casualty of the Obama Administration. 
So we load up and proceed to the second location and happen across a one pound jug of IMR 4227 which I can use. After a quick survey, I pay for the powder and proceed to our third establishment.
The third stop is notorious for high-quality Chinese crap, here is where I bought a cut off saw for case sizing.
The last a final place has reloading stuff along with metro-sexual camping, fishing, and hunting stuff. As I am ND are in the reloading section I notice a fellow and his wife walking around frantically looking for something. Well by this time, JUGM and NW come over and we observe the fellow ask the sales associate, do you have any .223 ammo. I look at JUGM and just smile. The poor young sales associate tells the fellow, "We are out and have no exact date of when we will get anymore in". The man spits out his shuttering mouth, "Why do I have a AR15 if I can't get ammo for it". Now in my "Jump at an opportunity when you get it" moment, I say to the man and his wife, "Well you should have thought about ammo 4 years ago, sucks to be you." and we turn and walk away giggling. I heard utter silence behind me. I'm sorry if I was a complete ass-hole to this poor man and his wife, but don't tell me that anyone who has seen the writing on the wall for at least the past 10 years, would not have taking the same jab at them as I did. Well this final place had nothing in the 110-135 grain range for .308 so we left.
Since the 300 AAC Blackout uses the 5.56x45 or 223 case and trying to find that specific brass with all that is going on, I decided I will make my own. Doing a bit of research on the NET, it really isn't that hard to make.
    The next thing I though about is how will I cut the casings using the cut-off saw, so I made a jig for the saw so I get good and even cuts each time.
    After making the cut, just below the neck on the 5.56 case, this is the outcome.
   After the cut, there is some minor case trimming to do to remove the burs caused by the saw.
     Once the burs are removed from the case, I apply some RCBS case lube to it and run it in the sizing die. I only did one case at a time to get my exact sizing down before I go into a production run. Note: I learned reloading from a very wise man with VAST reloading knowledge, lets just say that I learned about 4 decades worth of reloading in one day. This man knows his stuff. Anyone know who it is?
   After making a couple cases, here they are with the production case that I had shot. Which ones are they? They should be easy to spot.
    As most of you have seen, there is a shortage of reloading supplies, but did manage to order some bullets and a LEE Case trimmer, which is on backorder until later next week. Once I get these things in, I will continue with the 300 AAC Blackout postings.





Late December Mission

I am still here, just been busy and taking a much needed break from technology. I will embark on a late december mission today to every hole-in-the-wall establishment I know of in search of........

Ted Nugents KLRU interview

   I think he stated his point..


Dr. Susan Gratia, remember her?

    My second mom posted this to Facebook tonight, wanted to share this. Notice who is on the comittee, Chuck "The Turd" Shumer.


Gun Ban on the U.S. Government

     I have stepped away from the blogisphere for a few days to collect my thoughts, get some Christmas shopping done, which has been hard with the events in Stoney Brook, and try to get my mind off what is going on as of late.

     I think there is an overall consensus that this shooting should not have happened, was PURE EVIL and I think as a nation, we all are hurting from it. One of my neighbors stopped and talked as her kids were outside with mine and ask me my thoughts on gun control. I basically told her, it's not the gun's fault. The more gun control you impose on law-abiding citizens, the more freedom the criminals have. This kid could have easily driven a car at a high rate of speed into a crowded bus stop, or playground and killed children.

    Guns, Knives, Baseball bats, lead pipes, Pencils are all objects, they do not breath, think, sweat, or eat. These objects do not all of a sudden stand up, walk up to a person and take a persons life. Maybe the India, Delta, 10, TangoS in DC need to start looking at themselves before us.

     In my honest opinion, I think we need to ban guns from the U.S. Government. This is why....

How do you feel after hearing of what happened today?

    I, like many of you all found out the horrible news that came out of Newtown, CT this morning. Some sick, demented SOB went on a killing spree at an elementary school and took the lives of many innocent children. THIS TOTALLY FUCKING SICKENS ME!!!!!!!! Is this what our society has come too, taking the innocence from our lives... All I can do is offer my prayers to the families of these children, you will be in all our prayers for a long time.

    Now I will shift a gear and continue with this topic. What also sickens me is MAYOR BLOOMBERG!!!! You piece of crap, in the face of a tragic event, you could not hold yourself to feeling for these families and showing one ounce of compassion without making a POLITICAL STATEMENT out of this tragedy.

    I cant go on, this P.O.S politician will make me show my ass on here. I will not resort to this right now. I will show these familes some compassion and respect and not make a political statement out of it, this is not the time nor place. I usually dont give a Rat's Butt on what the president says most of the time; however, I will lower my flag tomorrow morning for the children. Mayor Bloomberg, I will continue this with you later.

North Korea, I know what your doing.....

     I seem to have an idea, or assumption of what is going on here. North Korea is under sanctions for nuclear weapons testing and now they are firing a missile into space saying they are launching a weather satellite. Am I the only one seeing this or are they almost finished developing a delivery vehicle to get a nuke over to the US and EMP our ASS? If there is a threat of them using a EMP on us to make our way of life like theirs, why wasnt this missile shot down? Do I need to do a RFI and help you military planners out? I know I'm retired, but I haven't lost it yet. I sure hope the money we have spent on Destroyers and Cruisers that are BMD capable pays off. I got it!!! The "Boy Wonder" in the White House is going to save us.

Day 2-1 and Odds and Ends

     Here I sit very proud that I am at day 2-1. It has been a trying week for me with my attempt to quit chewing tobacco. My last post was about as accurate as I was feeling, the first three days were hell. The effects of nicotine in my system is gone, and I actually feel much better. I plan to put in a second order for the mint chew and after that I think I will go without the replacement and see how it goes. At almost $7.00 a can for Copenhagen, times 30, there is now more money for my preps.

    Finished up my last ground campus class until June. The classes I have to take are only offered online, which I don't care for but I am ready to get this degree done and move on with my life.

    Finally got my old Liberty Safe sold. I forgot how heavy that damn thing was to move, especially by yourself. Note to self, don't sell another safe to an older gentleman, you end up doing all the work. It was worth it not only to get it out of the house, but $550 in our pocket for Christmas presents is always good. We only use cash for presents.

    Plan on attending the next gun show this upcoming weekend. My mission is to buy reloading components for 5.56x45 and some powder. I just did a CA for reloading 300 AAC Blackout and have made the decision to configure my Lee Progressive press to 300 Blackout and start cranking rounds out. Since 5.56 and 300 blackout use the same casing, only have to replace dies and recalibrate the charging station and I'm in business.

     Bob Costas update: Still waiting on him to ban cars and alcohol from this past weeks second professional football player dying. Also, he still is a piece of crap liberal that can choke on rice for all I care.

    Time to head off to bed, till next time.

Day 1-2

I feel like this today.......

Note: Wife, Kids and pets are fine. IT MUST BE NICE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Tuesday, December 4, 2012

Hey Bob, Kiss My .....

I wanted to provide Bob Costas a point to ponder before he opens his "PIE HOLE" and makes comments concerning handguns on a Nationally Televised football game.

Also Bob, the NFL player was a drunk, hooked on pain killers and sleeping around on his "BABY'S MOMMA", but in your eyes, the handgun jumped into his hand and did all this by itself.....

Day 1-1 in my struggle to quit

     Day 1-1 is almost done and I am quite proud of myself that I haven't quit my attempt to quit chewing, or in the south we call it dipping. Many of you may know that chewing tobacco has a higher concentration of nicotine that cigarettes or cigars have. This is what makes it harder to quit. I have smoked before and flipped back to dipping, them back to smoking, and the cycle continues. I can finally say that I have had enough of it all and I am determined to quit.

     I received the mint chew from Maine yesterday afternoon and opened it right up to check it out. I am very impressed, they package it in the same size cans as Copenhagen, it almost reminds me of the "Hawken" brand.The mint chew is not a fine cut, very coarse with some stems in it but damn it tastes good. I decided to wait until I woke up this morning to start since my nicotine levels would be as low as they would go.

     At first I was what you call "Jonesin" for a nicotine fix, but I put a mint chew in and it went away. I didn't not completely take nicotine out my first day, I have managed to have 5 small pinches of Copenhagen today that lasted 5 mins each in my mouth, then it was removed.

     Day 1-2 starts tomorrow and I am really looking forward to what it will bring to me in this quest to quit. I know I will hear from some friends, "Your a Quitter", and you know what, yes I am and your can look like these guys. This is what I do not want to look like nor go through the painful surgery.

As the world turns.......

     Sorry for taking an extended break from blogging. Just have not been in a mood to do much of anything as of late. Lost a good friend and neighbor the other night to cancer. He will be missed. I have been thinking of my own health too and have made a order for Jake's Mint Snuff. I managed to quit the last time using gum but I wanted to try something else this time. If any of you know how difficult it is to quit tobacco, well it is damn hard and changing your behavior and routines can be a challenge. I have done it before and should have never started back. So wish me luck whenever the Postal Service gets off their asses and delivers it.

  As much of you know already I am a college student and that has taking up some of my time. Next month will be my induction into the Business Honor Society, aka Lamba Sigma. I am quite proud of myself for this accomplishment, especially in my 40's.

Only 7 more classes and I will be done, for now. I do plan on going for a Graduate degree, but I will take some time off first.

    Today, the family and I went out to a yard sale for a group member who is hurting financially and helped him out with buying a few things. I know he hated to get rid of the stuff but I hope he will rest a little bit better tonight knowing he will have somewhat of a christmas now. I have also had some side-bar conversations with him about money saving ways and where he can go for help. Hopefully he takes me up on them, but more than likely, wont. Time will tell and I hope I am wrong, i need some humble pie.

    "Riddle me this Batman" As we were out, we went through a drive-up ATM at our bank. As I was sitting there waiting on the ATM to go through its process, I look up and see the phone jack for people who may have hearing problems, then I notice right below the phone jack, Braille. Can blind people drive now and if they can I am very happy for them or is this another one of the ADA requirements? Who knows....

     Reading past events in the news, I see that Fast food workers in NYC are wanting pay raises to $15 plus an hour. Really, give me a break. They say its too expensive to live in NYC, well I have an recommendation for you, MOVE!!!! Better yet, let's look at why you may be working there. Obvious you didnt take your education serious enough to warrant a better job or was it you were to busy hanging out with your friends partying like Lindsey Lohan to even care. Well I guess it is catching up to you now isn't it? "Teaching Moment" Kids, stay in school and learn as much as you can and most importantly, learn Self Responsibility.

     Hurrican Sandy victims are raising hell about FEMA and the other government agencies. Like anyone didn't see that coming. Like I have stated before, having some self responsibility would have made this disaster a bit more tolerable, don't you think? I cant make the suggestion that you change things in the ballot box since you all voted for what you got. Maybe you all have learned the valuable lesson of, the government only wants you tax money and could care less of you in a natural disaster. If I am wrong, please tell me.

     Fiscal Cliff is approaching, well really it isn't. There is no cliff, just a scare tactic, just like pushing granny over the cliff. "Attention, Attention, now hear this", There are India, Delta, 10, Tango's in Washington!!!! Like we didn't already know this, right?

    Results of the poll I had running here on Senior's Mess seems to have a overwhelming verdict of 93% saying that a SHTF scenario in the United States would be a result of a Economic Collapse. I have been thinking about just walking away from my house, maxing everything out to speed up the process, but I cant do it. I have morals and self responsibility, but you never know with me......

     Before I close this post, I managed to pick up another followe; GunDiva pressed the follow button and became my 33rd follower. Thank you very much for taking an interest in what my thoughts are and please feel free to comment and express you thoughts and ideas to any of my posts.

    I must get back to what I was doing, looking at beautiful property for sale.
