Gun Walker about to go Nuclear

So the ATF personally handed weapons across the border, including NFA weapons?

In a second, equally explosive disclosure, a law enforcement source tells Fox News, that ATF undercover agents were acting as the straw buyers and purchasing guns using government-issued false identifications and then providing those guns to cartel traffickers to gain credibility in their undercover roles. In that capacity, the ATF "provided 2, 50 cal. machine guns to traffickers that are loose in Mexico and unaccounted for," the source said.

I would like to point out that they sent weapons knowingly into Mexico and then magically lost the hardware.  This is pure conjecture however I would NOT be surprised to hear that agents received private cash payouts from cartels as part of this investigation.  What better way to smuggle equipment across a border than to have a government aiding and abetting.  

Then after shoving all these weapons over the border the ATF then says that straw purchasing is a serious problem and a long gun registry needs to be created.  This whole thing smacks of an engineered plot to achieve political goals by committing crimes and then blaming the law abiding.  Every agent who broke the law while operating on an “investigation” should be prosecuted under the law.  Just because you are an LEO doesn’t exempt you from following the law.  If anything you should be held to a higher accountability.

As Dave Hardy said:

While opinions may vary, I’ve always thought that undercover operations should stop short of committing acts of war.

Quote of the Day–Porretto(05/4/2011)

GUN CONTROL: The theory that a woman found dead in an alley, raped and strangled with her own pantyhose, is somehow morally superior to a woman explaining to police how her attacker got that fatal bullet wound.

-Francis W. Porretto, (Comment on British gun control is sexist)

[I find that the majority of the gun grabbers feel morally superior to call 911 and have a police officer shoot their attacker.  The thing is, the attacker will most likely have killed you prior to the police arriving.  I know the person above didn’t coin the above, but it bears repeating. 

Some would rather die than defend themselves.  Many of those would like to disarm those of us who would.  Their claim is security and safety.  How is safety increased when you are disarmed to be at the mercy of your attacker.  I’d rather die while fighting for my life than groveling at someone else’s feet to let me keep it.  -B]

Issa and Chaffetz Grill Holder

My only hope is this anger is real and they find every person who is responsible and hold them accountable.

The video of Issa nailing Holder to a wall.  Issa did a wonderful job nailing Holder.

Here is Jason Chaffetz.

One of these days I’ll probably write up a nice post with all the info I have.  Every time I start trying to make a post on this I feel my blood start to boil.  The amount of negligence and how it was being manipulated to destroy the rights of law abiding American’s is staggering.

In Which Ry Cooks Bacon

So Ry saw someone cook bacon on their MG-42 barrel and had a bright idea.  His suppressor gets scorching hot, why not cook bacon on that.  So the games began.


I was up at the line when Ry actually fried the bacon up.  Thankfully Rolf and AntiTango got pictures.

The fat acted as a lubricant and it wanted to slide off after every shot.

It didn’t cook all the way through but that never stopped anyone from enjoying bacon.


Thanks for the extra bacon Ry, it was delicious.

2011 Boomershoot Fireball Stills

This fireball was epic, it has created a flurry of traffic.  Rolf was kind enough to send me the pictures he took and I have uploaded them into my photo gallery.  The fireball stills start here (look at the bottom).  I’m posting the best images though in this post.

Thanks for the pictures Rolf!

Boomershoot 2011

Here is a quick post on some of the more broad points of Boomershoot 2011.  I was out there Thursday-Sunday, and camped Friday and Saturday night.  I must say, from now on I’m camping out there, it greatly simplified things even though I only live about an hour and twenty minutes away.

This post is going to focus on Sunday, I’ll make one that covers Friday and Saturday later.

Sunday kicked off with a wonderful fireball created by Ry





I got some other pictures of it turning into the mushroom cloud but I was just too close.  Hopefully we’ll get the pictures from Rolf some time soon.

At lunch there was the normal anvil shoot as well as a slightly new addition. 


These guys were lobbing bowling balls 600 yards easy.  They also looked damn impressive when they went off.



The anvil shot was impressive as always.


80 pounds tossed like a pizza.  Pictures of guns and shooters at Boomershoot will be randomly posted with comments throughout the year.  I’ve got so many pictures I can’t just pack them all in one post.  A video though should cover it.

There were some other lessons learned and other comments to make as well, but yet again, for another post.

Quote of the Day–Patrick(05/02/2011)

However, I think this quote from her is proof that because they act with a hive mind, they believe we do as well.  As if I’m sitting here, in IRC, telling others what to publish on her blog.  I’ve been in the gunbloggers channel.  We rarely even mention political gun stuff.  It’s mostly about alcohol, NSFW pics, and just general insanity.

Patrick, Joan Peterson Thinks Gunnies Are A Single Entity

[Anyone who has ever spent 10 minutes around gunnies knows that Patrick nailed this on the head.  We do not plan, scheme, or otherwise come up with hive strategies for dealing with those who would take our rights.  Instead when we get together we talk about guns, explosives, beer, sex, real alcohol, and just about anything else you can think of other than politics.  Just spending 5 minutes in the GBC will probably land you at least one NSFW link. Boobs are awesome though. If the anti-gunners come up in discussion we basically make the same comments to each other we would otherwise on their websites.

Joan, you’re a freaking idiot.  When mikeb rolls through the pro gun blogs making stupid idiotic statements, are you policing him? –B]

Boomershoot 2011

Today is Boomershoot 2011, the main event.  If for some reason you couldn’t make it, here’s another pic of blasty goodness.
