Good Perspective

On the recent Oklahoma happenings.

"Initial reports are ALWAYS wrong. This is true at the S.O., at your house when your daughter comes home late, at the TOC overseas. They are are ALWAYS wrong, if for no more or other reason than they're incomplete."
Ask anybody who's done any work in the S2.  Sometimes you just need to wait for the cluster to un-f$%& itself before you can really figure out what happened.

Truth

My fortune cookie speaks it.

The Anatomy of Shooting

At least in regards to the target's anatomy. This is a good read to follow up the link I posted a couple days ago.

In short, where you put the bullets is a crap-load more important than what kind of bullets they are.

Tactical Loitering

Another good read for the fellow LEOs out there.  In regards to an Active Shooter scenario. Hit them hard and fast, with an emphasis on fast.  How often do you see reports of a shooter capping themselves as soon as they meet armed resistance?

Smarter Every Day

Super slow motion tattoos!  This is relevant to my interests.

FBI 9mm Justification

If you haven't seen it yet, it's worth the read.  I think it mostly sums up what I've been saying for a while when people ask my opinion on the whole caliber war issue.  I can carry more and shoot it better, and it works just as poorly as any other pistol round.

Militarized Police?

Apparently one of the kids on our college radio station claimed our department is getting "too militarized" because we have an SUV.  I wonder if I could borrow County's Caiman for a day or so to put things into perspective?

I'm quickly learning the extra challenges of working for a University PD.  We don't even keep a long gun in the Tahoe because that's too scary.  We're also a tiny department, and we only have one vehicle, and we need to keep a bunch of crap in there at all times.  Combine that with Wisconsin winters, and it's darn nice to have a vehicle with high ground clearance and four wheel drive.  That's not militarization. That's just common sense.

KtKC... Plea for Donations!

Looking at the most recent standings... I can only turn to you readers and ask, "what more can I do?"  I'm sitting at like 10% of what I raised last year, which gives me a sad. :(

9mm LCR


Not gonna lie, I kind of want one.  I know my .38spc J-Frame is probably the better choice ballisticly, but there's some strange sort of appeal to this as a range toy.

KtKC Day 20

5k fun run this afternoon to kick of Pointoberfest at the big local brewery.  Fairly awesome that it also happened to be co-sponsored by Pints for Prostates, another Prostate Cancer Awareness group!


That is genuine hops growing behind us too!  I decided that if this becomes a regular thing, I need a better "running" kilt.

5.7 vs .22mag

MAC shoots some loads into some gel to show how they do-




Somewhat surprising actually.  I would like to see something similar involving a chrono, and a comparable .22mag with a 10.5" barrel to compare to the P90, but overall very cool.

KtKC Day 19

My schedule is making it a little tricky to get good photos this year, but here's another from yesterday.


The clouds were literally blowing between the camera and me, so you can't even see the lake in the background... It was actually pretty neat.

Bonus points if you recognize the rock formation I'm next to.

A friend of mine wanted to go hiking at Devil's Lake State Park this morning, so we did.  That required waking up at 4am, but it was worth it.


The kilt certainly allowed for a great freedom and range of motion for scrambling up the sides of the cliffs.

Nitro Baby

Celebrating the new furnace with some quality brews. Really just an excuse to get O'so Nitro Octoberfest.

How much do Americans love coffee?

A fairly decent amount.  I am honestly surprised that only 31% of Americans make coffee before doing anything else in the morning.

Furnace Fun

Cats are locked away in the guest "suite,"  and I'm stuck hanging out around the house while a bunch of guys do work.  It sure beats CO poisoning, but dang it makes for a boring day.

We called in a guy because the blower fan relay crapped out and the fan was running constantly.  He fixed that, but in his checks discovered the heat exchanger had a crack in it, which would do a great job of pumping exhaust fumes into the entire house.  Thankfully we were already planning to be out of town all weekend, and it's only chilly enough to just toss on a sweatshirt and be fine (50°...)

So... only replacing the furnace 5 years ahead of planned. Yay?

Only in California...

Somebody found out that dimensional lumber is dimensional.
As part of the judgment Lowes was ordered to pay $1.47 million in civil penalties and costs of the investigation, as well as an additional $150,000 to fund further consumer protection-related activities.
Yup, tubbafors aren't actually 2"x4", and apparently that's false advertising.

MSBS Promo

Very cool.  I'm a quarter Polish too, and we worked a bit with some Polish RCP guys on my first deployment, and they were cool shit, so I was interested to see that TFB posted a neat promo video for the newest Radom carbine system.

Ah, the joys of home ownership.  Also went to Menards to pick up a new storm door we ordered, somehow ended up loading it in the truck along with a new exterior door for the same doorway.  Go figure. (In our defense, it was a return that was a little over 60% off.  Dumb not to get it, since that was on the list for within the next year.)

Weekend!

I had my last overnight shift for a couple months, so we're kicking off the weekend right.

O'so Cherry Train.

KtKC Day 4

I realized that I slightly overshot day 4... it was rainy and hectic, and things happen.  Don't worry, I was still kilted, despite the thunderstorms, and manly activities occurred (like going to the fabric store... for manly things! More on that in a week or so...)

In the meantime, here's another photo from the wedding, not as professional, and not as far back.  Cue the jokes about who had the better dress.

Just three more overnight shifts in the foreseeable future.  Switching to 2nd shift for a couple months, which means lack of family time, but it does mean sleeping at night.

I've been using one for a couple years now, zero bad things to say.

Kilted to Kick Cancer 2014 Kick Off!

Once again, For the entire month of September I will be wearing a kilt (when I am not required to be in a uniform) to help raise awareness and funding for Testicular and Prostate Cancers.

I love this cause so much, I got married in a kilt!

1 in 7 men will be affected by Prostate Cancer in their lifetime. 1 in 250 men will be diagnosed with Testicular Cancer in theirs.  As with all cancers, early detection and treatment are key to survival.  The point of KtKC is to raise that awareness, inform men of these risks, and urge them to get checked.

I will be wearing a kilt, but what can you do to help?

You can get yourself a sweet outfit and enjoy a pants-free lifestyle too, but more importantly you can donate to help fund awareness campaigns and research into fighting these diseases.  Simply go to the Kilted to Kick Cancer Donate page and make your tax deductible donation today! Please remember to check "This donation is made as part of a Fundraising Team" and select "Team Guns & Coffee" from the drop-down menu as well, since there is a bit of a friendly competition going between us bloggers to see who can raise the most.

Your support is greatly appreciated, and get checked!
