Finally finished Monster Hunter Vendetta late last night (sad, I know, I've had it since it hit shelves... stupid life getting in the way...)  All I can say is that Mr. Correia is quickly becoming one of my all time favorite authors, and he's only got two books out.  There were a few points where I simply hated him for what he was doing to his characters, which only means that they're insanely believable characters, and that I was able to build up quite a bit of sympathy for them.  (Thankfully it works out by the end, mostly, yet still leaves plenty open for more books.  Hooray!)

Like I've said before, if you haven't read them yet, get your hands on them and get prepared to be blown away.

Clark County update

From the WCI Chair over on the OC Forum regarding the news out of Clark County yesterday:
Just got off the phone with WCI Attorney Joe Olson. He reviewed the decision.

Its a very broad decision. If upheld on appeal it strikes a death blow to Wisconsin's CC statute.
If it isn't appealed, those in Clark County could be pretty confident in carrying as they choose so long as they don't violate any other laws. (GFSZ???) are not felons prohibited from carrying, etc.
Not advising people to CC in Clark county (we are all adults, you make your own decisions)
But it appears this decision is very broad and expansive and there is only 1 circuit court judge in Clark County so its completely logical to expect the exact same decision in any CC case that doesn't involve a crime.
(bold emphasis mine)

Pic of the Day, Sweeeeeeeet Edition

As usual, click to make bigger.

Of course I couldn't help but crop it a little more... This is just cool.

Just plain cool.  Oh, the new gun works.  I've got a slew of pics, but I'm going to spread them out, so check back daily.

More XM-25

A while back it was let known that limited numbers where going to go to Afghanistan with some SF guys.  It turns out there were some problems getting the guys trained and getting the weapons to them in time for their trip (at least that's what I assume they mean by "scheduling problems") and it didn't happen.

It looks like they're going to send a bunch with some of the 101st boys to get a feel for how they'll work with Infantry Teams though.  Cool stuff.

They've got a facebook page going now, some cool pictures and links to reviews.  Check it out.
