Gun-Day Monday: This Weekend’s Gun Show and Other Things

MajW DC (aka Phat Joe) and I linked up at the Nation’s Gun Show yesterday and had hell’s own good time for a few hours. He bought some .22 LR (including some snake shot) to begin a stocking program; I bought a bagful of cleaning gear and lubricants. For the moment, because of his geographic difficulties, I’m storing his ammo and ordnance, but soon (very soon!) he’ll retake possession, and that will be a glorious day. Not that I mind keeping it all for him– quite the contrary, I’m glad to do it– but a free man needs his weapons.

In rooting through his small stash down in my basement last night I made the pleasant discovery that he has a lot more .22 LR than I thought. Now he has more! Also, he has a handful of the curious .25-20 rounds. Does anyone know anything about that round? It looks like a nifty little small game cartridge.

In other news, tyranny never rests. WeaponsMan has a round-up of foul acts and usurpations. Here’s but one:

State Department Attacks Gunsmiths

If you’re a gunsmith who cuts metal on firearms or firearms parts, the State Department has just mounted an attack on you. You will now need a $2,500 annual “registration fee” to as much as crown a barrel or fit a flash hider, because you’re now “engaged in the export of armament services.”

Resist them all, I say.

    Oh great, more executive overreach. Why anybody is okay with this when “the other side,” regardless of your perspective, will inevitably be in power again during your lifetime is unfathomable.
