Hard to believe that the deceased in Pearland Texas was able to obtain a hammer without a background check. We need to enact common sense Hammer laws to close the home improvement show loopholes.


At least there is no shortage of nails….yet.

What makes the officer in the first article “suspect”? Also, I really shouldn’t be surprised that the picture at the top of that article is the now infamous “hands up” still photo, instead of a mugshot or still photo from the case at hand.

I have a short list of things in my life of things I’m ashamed of more than that I used to (very briefly!) be a newspaper reporter.


Wasn’t it Harry Truman who compared being a politician to being a piano player in a whorehouse? Although, compared to a reporter… only one has the skill to play the piano.


BZ to Officer Burch on his fine shooting. One less dirtbag to prey on Society.

Was it a “Claw” (ht 2 Supply Daddy) Hammer? Ball peen? Sledge (ht 2 SFC Sledge, a damn fine 3 war Soldier that helped teach the Gin Bunny how to be a better man AND a better Soldier)? Will ATF start visiting tool departments of hardware stores? BZ to the homeowner for “hammering” this mofo.

Interest gun pr0n article, was not really familiar with this one. I did notice, again, how the reviewer compared this piece with the works of His Most Saintly JMB (Howitzer be His Name). The comparsion was made to the JMB Design that is mentioned in the Book of Rev 19, 11.

“Gin Bunny”? Something new? Or telling some backstory? Top shelf? Or bottom basement?

The original Automags were popular back in the 70’s. Those were huge and what a flame shot out when they were fired. Was shooting at the Nassau County NY range when the guy in the firing point next to me had one. On a side note, I bought a Colt Detective special and a Spanish Star in .380 and along with the colt, I got a box of Super Vel .38’s which I believe aren’t made anymore. I shit canned the full box and was telling a vendor at the Gun Show about it, He said that it was worth some bucks to a collector.
