Lost another quiet hero

Houston McCoy, police officer who shot UT Tower sniper, dies

 A man, a public servant, and quiet hero.  This man ran toward the sound of the guns, stepped out into the killing zone of a deranged mass murder, and ended a rampage with a 12 Ga. shotgun.

 THESE are the men we need to remember and honor.  Not some entertainment monkey,  not some blowhard that convinced the gullible to vote for them , but a true hero.  Someone that had the steel taste of fear in his mouth, yet went forward into danger, and did the hard things that saved lives.

 Rest in peace, Officer McCoy.   You have earned it.


Oh, and here is a double middle-finger salute to the Un-American Spaceman.  A hero requested that the name of the shooter be omitted from his final story.  So, they put the shooter's name in the headline.  You guys are a bunch of assholes.  Honor his courage, sacrifice, and his last wish, you jerks.

Range trip!

If I can get a decent group from this, I am going to try and get a deer with it this weekend. Range report coming soon

Hour wait to get on the range.  No report... Sorry.

That Kid is in the hospital with what appears to be double pneumonia. Any prayers, good thoughts, vibes, or Druidic chants would be appreciated.

Lego channels Larry Correia

Very cool.  Lego monsters and "Fighters". Vampires, werewolves, ghosts, swamp monsters, mummies,  zombies, Agent Franks! Etc...

If I get time, I am building a killer gingerbread house with Lego monsters.  Hell yeah.

Sandy Hook Elementary in CT

As a parent of a young child, my condolences go out to the families of the victims.  This is unspeakable horror visited on the most innocent of all victims, and I cannot imagine the pain that the families are going through.  I wish I could do more than offer my prayers.

I hope the shooter is burning in hell right now.

Coal Powered Motorcycles

The latest news being hyped by morons of facebook.  Coal Powered Motorcycles:

Zero Motorcycles

For $7700, you get a city range of 28 miles and a top speed of 55MPH.  For fuel, you plug into a wall outlet and burn dead dinosaurs from miles away while spewing toxic fumes into the atmosphere and poisoning the planet.  Plus, there is the fun of toxic batteries that wear out and must be recycled, and can explode in a fire, or electrocute rescuers after an accident...

Does not seem like a great trade off against a normal internal combustion engine.

Carry knife meme

T-Bolt put his up, so I thought I would join in, in lieu of actual content.  The whole point is:

Take the knife out of your pocket and take a picture of it.  Post it on your blog.

So.  Here is mine.

I just noticed that I picked up a couple of new followers.  Thanks "West Tx At Heart" and "Josem5" for clicking the follow button. 

I know I am slack and thanking everyone, and I wish I could be as good at it as Stephen but I'm not.

Anyway, I know I promised more of the story on the buck I shot.  I'll get it on here ASAP.

Finally got one!

Smaller than I wanted, but the pressure is finally off. Deer down, meat in the freezer.

December 7th, 1941

Today, we remember the attack on Pearl Harbor that brought the US into WWII.  Take a moment today to remember those that fought and died, those that fought and lived, and those that made sacrifices on the homefront to secure our victory.

Thank you to all that served.

Verizon wants to know what you are doing

So, Verizon has patented a DVR that can see what you are doing while watching TV, and target the ads to your activity.

They want to:
 target viewers “cuddling, fighting, participating in a game or sporting event, and talking” and match them up with appropriate advertising content.

I see you have changed the channel to Cinemax.  Care to buy some lotion?
 They seriously want to know if you are cuddling with your significant other while watching TV.  I'm sorry, this is just so f***ng wrong, I cannot describe.  It's nuts.  I can't believe ANYONE thought this was a good idea.

Alone with 30 cats?  Verizon suggests a box of Franzia White Zinfandel.

How long until the FBI starts demanding Verizon turn over the records of this 'service'?

"Our records show you were watching "The Walking Dead" while repeatedly working the action of an AK-47.  Come with me, please.
If anyone knows the exec that greenlighted this, kick them in the balls for me, please.

Things that need to be said.

1) To you people who have some sort of inflatable yard decoration out from Mid-September through Mid January:  When your so-called 'decoration' is turned off, it looks like a giant has thrown a used condom on your front yard. 

2) I can't believe this needs to be said.  NO TALKING IN THE MEN'S ROOM!  This is a long standing and time honored rule.  If you are talking to someone and you walk into the men's room, pause the conversation until you leave.
