The ATF Returns This Friday

My apologies guys.  I have been on the road and the fact is I just cannot do the show from a truck...  at least... not a cummins diesel.  The things are loud ok?

We will fire it up at the usual time friday night.   We obviously have a lot to talk about.

ATF Show Tonight?

Listen up.  I've got three words for ya....


We've been busting our asses for VBS for about 2 weeks straight...  today was the last day... and dude I am shot.  We got it all done... it was the best one we've ever done.  So...  sorry man.  We'll pick it back up next week... or do it tomorrow night maybe?  I dunno. I just know I am way to shot to do it today.


Never the less:

A: Dos Equis Amber.  I consider this a well earned victory lap.

T: Gurkha Warlord.  Thanks Res.


I thought I would include a little story from VBS...   because well... lets face it... many of you are thinking... "my GOD what would a VBS with NATE look like?"


Great Stories from VBS:

 Little girl sees the multitool on my belt and says "why do you have that?" I said, "its a tool. its better to have it and not need it, than to need it and not have it." She smiled and said, "My daddy says that same thing about his pistol. He takes it with us EVERYWHERE!" so I patted her on the head and said, "That's because he's a good man. And he loves you very much."   Roll Tide.

I was team lead of the Red Team... which of course was called The Big Red One all week.  I taught them this little thing...  I would yell "RED TEAM ROCKS!" and they would all yell "JUMP BACK! KISS MYSELF!" and take jump backwards and kiss their bicep.   Seeing 5 and 6 year olds do this...  there are no words to the glory of such a thing. 

Today was the last day and the kids really didn't want it to end so they asked if I could sign their shirts... and I did... but then they wanted to sign my shirt too... and I let them all.  I didn't get to read any of the "signatures" until I got home today.. but man...  One little girl... Joshlyn... she's a doll... in fact she's the girl from the first story up there.  She wrote "Jump back! Kiss Myself!" on my shirt... but my favorite...  was a little boy that wrote "you our osum"

Can't make that up.  None of it.

American Rifleman Goes Full Retard

Most of you may not realize this... but the NRA was actually formed after the War of Southern Independence. (you yankees probalby call it the civil war)  See some yankees came home from the war and were deeply disturbed because the confederate soldiers shot a lot better than they did.  The yankees had better rifles... but the southern boys shot more accurately.  Now rather than rationalizing this... they did the manly thing and recognized it and set out to fix it.   They started the NRA and started teaching yankees to shoot better.  They built rifle ranges and worked to get shooting taught in schools.  They did good work... at least if you think yankees shooting better is desirable.

Over the decades... hell a century... the NRA has changed.   Its changed so much in fact...  that now.. its own publications can do things like this.

Yes Virginia...  an organization created to help folks shoot accurately... just published 5 reasons for you to buy a mini-14.

This makes sense in a sick and ironic sort of way...  you have an anti-gun organization marketed as gun lobby...  recommending an odd piece of useless plumbing marketed as a rifle.

I think my favorite bit here is where the author starts yammering about how 2 inch groups at 100 yards "are not out of the question".    Note...   he didn't say you could expect them.   He didn't say they'd happen regularly.  He said...  "they are not out of the question."   In other words... the mini-14 is the same minute of paper plate piece of shit it has always been.

And actually its even worse.  Remember... these guys measure their groups from the center of the group out.  Meaning they look at the group they shot.. pick a center point... and measure out from there.   So you have shots that are 4 inches apart... but its a 2 inch group.  Because see each was only 2 inches from the center.

So when you see these guys calling something a 2 inch group...  that's what guys like JAC and I call a 4 inch group.  Because we find the two shots that are the furthest apart and measure one to the other... center to center.  So if the two furthest are 4 inches apart... it is a 4 inch group... and well...  maybe this illustration will help...

Attention Toothy!

hey man I have something I need to talk to you about.

Look me up in the comments here... leave an email or something.   And actually... now that I think about it... if you own or work in a gunshop... or have family that does... this applies to you to.

We need to talk.



I have no idea what I just watched.   And I cannot decide if its unspeakably awesome... or the most terrible thing I have ever seen.
