Oh Noes! I'm turning into a crazy gun nut!

Not gonna lie, folks.

I went to Afghanistan, and came home with a love for firearms. On my 2-week leave, I bought a Mossberg 500 and two AR-15s, one of which I have recently sold.

When I got home for good, I bought an AK-47 and an M1 Garand. And lots and lots of ammo.

I filed my taxes on Tuesday, and in celebration of my rather sizeable return, I went and bought a handgun.

Behold, the Glock 30 SF (Short Frame), chambered for .45 ACP!

User-friendly, tough, and perfectly sized for concealed carry. I think this is probably the most expensive hobby I have ever picked up.

Buy firearms, people. And since I'm all about the gettin' of knowledge, I will now perform the end-post ritual of AWESOME Quotations from AWESOME PEOPLE.
"Loneliness. The American grizzly lives out his life alone. Indomitable, unconquered - but always alone. He has no real allies, only enemies, but none of them as great as he.
The world will never love us. They respect us - they might even grow to fear us. But they will never love us, for we have too much audacity! And, we're a bit blind and reckless at times too.
The American grizzly embodies the spirit of America. He should be our symbol! Not that ridiculous eagle." -Theodore Roosevelt, The Wind and the Lion(1975)

I have to agree with TR, the grizzly should be our symbol, not that silly eagle :) But they're both better than Ben Franklin's turkey -_- that wouldve been plain embarrassing!
Everyone should love guns :)

Originally, the national symbol was (unoficially) the Rattlesnake, as seen on the Gadsden and Culpepper Flags.


1) Indigenous to only N. America (at the time)


3) Warns you by rattling to stay away, and

4)Finally attacks when it has no other choice.

Most of the Rebels thought that this was perfectly representative of the colonies, warring with Britain only after exhausting al other options for peaceful resolution.

Oh, I found your blog quite randomly. I just press the "next blog" button, till I find something I want to respond too. I'm afraid there's no grand scheme behind it, just coincidence of being the next blog! :D
