SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (3TV/CBS 5) – Two men are dead and a third was wounded and is in the hospital after an early morning shooting in Scottsdale.

It happened at about 2:40 a.m. at the Circle K near 81st Street and Indian School Road, which is just east of Hayden Road.

    OK, let’s try this again, way off my scheduling. As commented on the Independence Day Open Thread, (btw, notice who was FIRST?) I had just exited from the POG Article (author needs to either do more research or better yet go fire one a time or 50) on the “Brown Bess” British built shoulder fired Artillery when the IDOT dropped. Again, the Good Lord placed me where He wanted me to be, at His Right Place, at His Right Time. Proof that He Loves me and He wants me to be happy.

    Today’s offerings from our Beloved Aeronautically Designated Squidley Swabbie is also proof that he hasn’t lost that Lovin’ Feelin and will stand shoulder to shoulder as we ride into the danger zone. A real beach…err…err…peach of a guy that we really have a ball, swapping volleys with.

    Let’s recap…

    (A) Shoulder fired, pum’kin chunkin’ Artillery that was FIRST defeated by the American Citizen Soldier.

    (B) A Trifecta DRT FGS for our very own Wilted Willy.

    (C) A demonstration of the Cannoneers Hop by some very Historically Accurate Gun Bunnies (BTDT for the NPS & State Parks, their rules are a bitch and if we’d of had to fight a war following their guide lines we’d still have a cockney accent). I quote from the quote of the French from the video, “…the American Artillery has always been extremely well served.” The Troopers of Colonel Moore’s FIRST Battalion, 7th Cavalry Regiment can testify to that…among many others.

    Artillery…The King of Battle…The Winner of Wars!
