Tactical Thursday -Greatest Battle Implement Edition

So, I did not make it to the range today. But I'll get to do that plenty next week. Write up to come on the abuse I'm about to subject my P-95 too.

But today was still a good day. But first a bit of back story. I like old rifles. I like old American military rifles. And no discussion of old American military rifles is complete without discussing the M-1 Garand.

So, my good buddy Dennis has an M-1 Garand. Purchased from the CMP. And I went with him to get it. And then we shot the hell out of it. Funny thing, as much as I love the M-1, being a left handed shooter, I find it awkward to run the weapon. But still, they are great old guns. Where as they shine a bit brighter than possibly deserved due to being the only 8 shot semi-auto in a five shot bolt gun conflict; the fact remains that the Garand killed a lot of America's enemies. And truly armed the Citizen Soldier who won the war after the small pre-war professional military held the line.

I believe I remarked that the Chi-Comms could bring it
That day was also a couples round robin corn hole tournament. Cindy and I were paired up because Jackie was in Colorado or some damn place.

We put more thought into our uniforms than actual skill
But today, I went with another good Boy Scout buddy to the CMP. Fellow blogger Mr. Garabaldi made the purchase today. And I rode shotgun. It was a good day. Looked at old guns, talked grain weights with the CMP counter guy, and got a free lunch. Mr Garabaldi will have a better write concenring his gun soon.

  2. I am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don't know how to cook or clean, don't want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women?

    American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least.

    This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.

  3. "...round-robin corn hole tournament..." sounds like a San Francrisco activity to me.
