What’s that old saying? “Life would be easy if it weren’t for other people”.
Do you like guns? If you’re here, you probably do.
Do you know a lot about guns? Some of you do, some of you don’t. Some are aware of where you stand on the gun knowledge spectrum, and others are not.
Do you want to talk about and learn about guns? Once again, if you’re here, you probably do.
It would be great if we could all discuss the things we like and learn more about them. But like any activity, once you add people into the mix it can get pretty complicated and annoying.
(Updated) We have posted about range rules before, specifically the issue of ammo restrictions and brass retention policies.
Another set of rules that many shooters encounter is restrictions on the amount or frequency of shooting.
While it is common for publicly-accessible ranges to exclude full-auto weapons, certain ranges take the principle farther. Some ranges limit the number of shots you are supposed to take without a pause between them (a “5-shot rule” or a “no rapid fire/double-tap rule”). Others limit the number of rounds you put into the magazine. One range (according to a commenter in this post by SayUncle) doesn’t allow semi-auto rifles to be fired with a magazine inserted!
The full-size .38 revolver is a fine weapon. Not an ideal choice for concealed carry, but certainly not impossible. The holster is key. The right holster makes a carry gun safe & secure, and ensures that it is accessible when it is needed.
There are plenty of holster styles available, from a variety of manufacturers. Leather, soft nylon, rigid polymer. Strong-side, weak-side, on-the-waistband, inside-the-waistband, paddle, pancake, shoulder, ankle, pocket. There is a holster for any carry need.
If you need a holster for a full-size .38 revolver, try your local gun store or any of the reputable online retailers.
It’s almost over, folks.
The Year of the Rabbit (by Chinese reckoning) is drawing to a close, and the Year of the Dragon is coming.
It’s been a fun ride for the YGN team, and we will be continuing our efforts in 2012. We are gratified by those readers who are glad to hear that, and just as gratified for the angst we will continue to cause our detractors. Hey, at least we haven’t been blacklisted…
There are many things competing for our attention at this time of year, but some of the posts that we are working on for the near future are:
Thanks for reading.
Che Guevara was an asshole. A murdering, cowardly asshole. Even the left-leaning Slate thinks so.
Who but an asshole believes in socialism enough to murder women & children in its name?
Who but a coward would gleefully execute bound prisoners of the Cuban regime, but beg for his life (“I’m worth more alive than dead!” were his alleged last words) when he was hunted down and executed by American-led Bolivian rangers while trying to export revolution to that country.
Lower down the sphincter scale are the ignoramuses and dupes who wear Che-themed clothing in the belief that it makes them look cool. It doesn’t. It does assist the rest of us in identifying morons, however. (more)
