Follow up from the flag issue in California I mentioned yesterday- it looks like the school pulled their collective heads out of...... you know, and reversed their decision.

Well that was a let down...

It's always great to drive 30 miles in the rain to find an empty building and a handful of guys standing around going "isn't there supposed to be a gun show here?"  At least I know I'm not crazy since there was at least two other guys in the parking lot, and another guy walked into the nearby gun shop to ask what the heck is up with the gun show a couple minutes after I did.

M4 Upgrades

This is the most logical solution in my mind, and it's good to see the changes coming down the line. reports:
Upgrades to the M4 include a more resilient barrel, ambidextrous controls and a full-automatic setting. Add better ammunition, and Soldiers will have a more lethal weapon to fight insurgents, according to Program Executive Office Soldier, which introduced the improvements.
The Army says they plan to start issuing them to guys going to A-stan in the near future.

Yeah... I want one.

Can we get these imported? Please??

More .458 SOCOM

From Oleg Volk.  No pictures this time, but:
In complete darkness (two hours after sunset), the 16" rifle with 300gr SBR ball showed minor red glow entirely contained in the flash hider.
If only ammo wasn't so freakin' expensive...


After the better part of a weeks worth of unseasonably warm weather, we're back to a proper Wisconsin November.  Currently 39 massive degrees, dark, grey, and drizzly.  Ick.

Probably go hit up the gun show in the small down down the road and see if I can't cheer myself up.  May be optimistic and keep my eye out for a S&W 442 without a hole in the side or something comparable.  If all else fails, maybe a little Kel-Tec.
