Terrifying. Reloading. Disarmed! Politicians.

Gawker (website of some sort) wets itself over ..

THE MOST TERRIFYING thing on the internet.

Hello!! Is an inanimate object! Does nothing without a ‘USER” meaning a human being to operate it!!

Good grief…Some people need to grow up and deal with the real world.

A tool people a piece of metal, plastic, wood and it scares you?


Reloading myths.

Six of them.

Separating old wives tales from explosive truth

Sometimes the amount of B.S. floating around reloading circles is astonishing.  For instance, I’ve come to realize that I will most likely not die a sudden death of lead poisoning from handling cast bullets.  Just as shooters reload for as many reasons as there are types of reloading devices, some myths are true and others are old wives (or old reloaders) tales. No matter.  Just ensure that safety always takes priority at the loading bench.  Load often, use common sense, and enjoy a great hobby that makes better, more attentive shooters of us all.


Well this would make some sense..


Feds say no to veterans having guns and ammo.

Well if you think about it. Makes sense as why arm those whom you trained and have experienced combat. Wouldn’t want them to use those skills against the Government when it goes for total control and take over of all things American and Free…

Truth from Wild Bill.

Disorganized Conservatives..Herding cats…Yep..

Problem being the Dhimmwits blindly follow whomever offers them the most promises of bullshit.

The Repuplikans or Conservatives tend to think for themselves and have independent streaks and do not like anyone telling them what to do..

So tough to organize.



This is Rep. Alice Hausman (DFL 66A, Roseville)(Minnesota)
“Author” of:
HF 241 Gun ban, registration confiscation (the bill defines common use handgun revolvers as “assault weapons“)
HF 242 Standard capacity magazine ban, 10 rounds
HF 243 Standard capacity magazine ban, 7 rounds

Didn’t write the bills, didn’t present the bills (Heather Martens, paid anti-gun lobbyist from Protect MN presented the bills. Highly irregular.) And Hausman couldn’t be bothered to attend the public hearings on these bills despite the fact that Minnesotans came from all over the state to testify.
Gross dereliction of duty.


Friday Facebook..


And we have a wee bit of snow out there and I DO NOT have to travel in it unless I want to!!

And I do, Ahlman’s for sure as I need some supplies, reloading type.

And to wander around their gun racks and see what they have, which is usually lots but will be interesting after all the OMG buying recently…

Me? I have a few I would desire…But only in calibers I already own. SO another carbine in 7.62×39, maybe something in a long gun for both .38/.357 and 9 mm.

We’ll see what we see I guess…

Saturday Facebook…


Yep is Saturday and after doing a lot of running and ‘household’ chores Friday and no reloading, need to rectify that..

MBWITW was getting a haircut yesterday and ran into a neighbor whose views are similar to mine, if not more so ‘conservative’.

They were talking and it somehow turned to 2nd Amendment and the coming storm. Neighbor whom os a senior citizen, well off and has a ‘home’ in Montana somehow brought up ammo and reloading and MBWITW stated that yes I did reload.

He then asked her if she know how to reload…

She replied ‘No!’. A bit shocked I think she was..

He then stated she should probably learn how in case I was ‘wounded’!!!

Now she was really ‘shocked’!!!



The Cost of Reloaded Ammo

vs. Factory Loads: The cost of freedom?

Right now I reload .38 Special  and .357 magnum and find it is cost effective.

I also reload for my rifle .32 Winchester Special becasue ammo is hard to find.

And it is cheaper for me to reload..

I have considered 9mm. But you can still find boxes of 50 for range use under 10 bucks around here, if you pay attention..

And I am thinking I need to get that lever action in .38/.357 and components stocked up…Soon…Another Revolver in that caliber or 3 also.


Reloading on the Cheap

Reloading on the Cheap – HUMAN EVENTS.

Is my setup.

Reloaded many rounds or .38 special and a “few” of .32 Winchester Special last winter.

Much time spent handloading and although some of my friends thought I should “upgrade” I saw no reason to!!

“But your set up is so sllloooowwww” I was told.

Um…Worked fine on those snowy days sitting with the boyz reloading a couple of hundred rounds in an afternoon.

Like I really needed to do or be anywhere else!!!

I am going to start reloading .35 Remington for my Dad’s gun this year and am kicking around 9mm.

Why not I say!! I enjoy it!!




Rainy Saturday….

Raining. Supposed to rain all day…

Sounds like a reloading day and just read Brigid’s post on reloading. Gal can write.

I got into reloading about a year and a half ago.

Friend whom has done it for years convinced me and got me going.

Lee Reloading setup.

Lyman manual.

So far have been reloading .38 spec, .357 and .32 Winchester Special.

Have a goodly supply of all now.

Considering 9mm.

Found this at Brigid’s Place and am always looking for sources of good info.

Enjoy it.

Like the idea for using dryer as polisher…wonder hoe the MBWITW will take that one??

Have to get some polishing media though….Trip to Cabela‘s today possible?

They have done some remodeling at their Owatonna store…would like to see it…Plus it is the closest place for me. There is Ahlman‘s though…….Hmmmm and they have a range and I am a member there….

Old Stuff…..

Yesterday or sometime earlier this week I was sitting downstairs and trying to figure out how I could:
A) Make my reloading setup more “available”.
B) How could I and where could I put my new “Ubuntu” box up so that I could more easily access it.
I knew that setting both items up somewhere in our newly redecorated Family Room would not score the needed points with the MBWITW and could lead to some “issues”/
But damn I hated dragging my current reloading setup out of the closet whenever I wanted to use it. Yhe same for the Ubuntu setup.
In the closet….
Geesh..I really would like to get out of the closet!

So I was looking at this old wardrobe we have sitting down there that has served as an entertainment center, housed my stereo and most recently has served as a storage unit for my old vinyl albums, which I refuse to get rid of!! And my collection of really old comic books plus some sundry other items.
When it came to me!
I could convert that with a work into a reloading center AND computer desk!!

What I started with..

A few 2x4s some laminate shelving from Menard’s, a few screws and about 8 hours later I had this!

Oh yeah…

I get me my computer with the innerwebz and Linux, which I am liking and my reloading stuff all setup!!

AI have to figure out something for the keyboard besides me lap and the mousie..

But I am happy, the MBWITW is liking it and I think it will all work out well!!

I mean, reloading, computer…what the hell else do I need!!!??

Besides a range in my backyard!!


Ammo…reloading and sundry bits and pieces…

Nice quiet day today.

Took kid to baseball practice.

Mowed lawn after picking up all the branches from last Thursday.

Picked kid up from practice and stopped at Menards for a few items.

Prepped 200 .38 Special cases.

Made supper. Steak and potatos on the grill!!

Finished reloading all 200 rounds, errr 199 as I found one split case!

And watch Transformers I with son.

Good day.

Now have a wee bit of Irish Mist I am sipping on.

Must haves for guns and shooting!


Because. I can!

Kel Tac PLR 16 in 5.56 Nato. What is it good for? Target shooting, plinking(okay not so much) Small game hunting and Zombie killing(remember to double tap!)! Yep all good reasons for buying one!!

Plus it is black and militaristic looking and will drve the anti gun leftist sheepoles into a frenzy!!

(H/T Snarky Bytes)

So while in this line of wants, how about a tactical double barrell shotgun!?

I mean you need a good home defense weapon and a shotgun is about the best! A couple of rounds of buckshot and BOOM! Intruders solved!!

Tactical rails etc… Although my 12 Gauge pump will probably do the job as well or better(more rounds = more firepower)

This would just be neat!

Read about it here at Gun Pundit last year and number one Son seems to think we just need one, I do not disagree…..

But I also would like a Glock (because as a medic I am able to get the Glock discount at authorized dealers and the prices I saw yesterday at Ahlman’s were pretty good!) and am thinking of giving this a whirl this year! And PIne Island is not to far away.

And speaking of Ahlman’s, my number one son and I went there yesterday and put a few roounds down range, He brought his .410 and .380 Hi-Point and I my Ruger GP100 and of course my every day carry Kahr CW9. But the biggest reason was to see if my new adventure into reloading would actually work! I had loaded up a few .38 Special loads with the new reloading set up and well, they went bang when I pulled the trigger and lead flew down range and punched holes in the target I was aiming at!!! WOOT! 

So that was a good thing!
