Just curious

I was looking at the blog stats--what is it with my post on the Savage 6D that is so continually fascinating to visitors?  That post is continually a top post over on the right, leads the most viewed posts at this moment, and is (and I find this frightening) the #1 search result on Google for the search string "Savage 6D".

Good grief, I just reread that post and I cringed.  I won't rewrite it, but man, was I looking for my voice.

Pay attention

The death of Command Sergeant Major Michael Heintz as a result of a misfire of his gun at a private range in South Carolina is a reminder to all of us that the hobby we love is dangerous.  A brave man is dead because his gun misfired.  By all accounts, it was that rare bird, a true accident with a gun.

It is a reminder to all of us why we must also keep in mind that we should never forget to live out lives in such a way that if we happen not to come home at night, those left behind should absolutely know that we loved and cared for them.

Federal Bureau of Inquisition?

(Via the Drudge Report)

While I normally shun the Infowars site as a bit far on the woo-woo side of things for my taste, this article on the FBI's NGI biometric database made my shorts suddenly start chaffing.

Give a bureaucracy a fingerprint and they will take a full body scan, I suppose.
