FOUND HIM!

Unless I'm the last to know (which could be the case as I've been just about incommunicado), Phil's 'Busted Knuckles' has landed here , for now.  I'm thinkin' it's a temporary thing, but he's up and blogging.

I've Been EXTREMELY Pre-Occupied with a LOT of things....

But not too busy to put out a reminder:  Winter is coming on fast; time to get your primary 'go to 'winterized.'  Clean it extremely well, and remove all but the most minute amount of lubrication.  Change batteries in your optics, if they're so powered. You'll be glad you did, should you need your 'go to.'  Just keep it away from any actors you may happen across.

No Wiggle Room on This!

Regarding Baldwin's killing of the DP of his latest movie and "fault": It is the PERSONAL responsibility of the person holding the weapon to immediately check the chamber for either appropriate loads OR empty status.    No excuses, no,  "they told me it was empty..." ALL WEAPONS ARE ALWAYS LOADED UNTIL PROVEN TO BE EMPTY BY VISUAL INSPECTION. THE PERSON WITH HIS OR HER HANDS ON THE WEAPON IS SOLELY RESPONSIBLE IF THE WEAPON IS DISCHARGED, UNINTENTIONALLY OR NOT. End of story.

Annnnnnndddd, it's a muslim....well, thankfully, at least here in the US, sidearms trump archery equipment.   Via Info Wars . Muslim Convert Responsible for Bow and Arrow Killings Described as “Danish National” by Media by  Paul Joseph Watson October 14th 2021, 6:16 am Media outlets & Twitter bury likely motivation. After a Muslim convert on a radicalization watchlist killed five people during a bow and arrow rampage in Oslo, media outlets and Twitter reacted by describing the perpetrator as a “Danish national.” Hmm, they appear to have left something out there. Four women and one man were left dead after the attack, while an off-duty police officer and another person were wounded. According to police chief Ole Bredrup Saeverud, the 37-year-old culprit had converted to Islam and “There were concerns over radicalisation.” Reuters  reported  the story with the headline “Danish man suspected of killing five in bow-and-arrow attack in Norway.” Twitter also chose to bury his Muslim

 From the, ' Tactical Hermit .' Avoiding the ‘Fatal Funnel’ October 13, 2021  by  The Tactical Hermit  in  Active Shooter ,  Another Reason to Be Armed ,  Armed Citizen Corner ,  Home Invasion Prevention/Security ,  Home Security ,  Police State ,  Police Watch ,  Self-Defense Issues ,  Tactics ,  Tradecraft ,  Training ,  Training Tips  and tagged  Doors ,  Home Security ,  Houston Police Shooting ,  Modern CQB Tactics ,  Room Clearing ,  Self-Defense Issues ,  Tactics ,  The Fatal Funnel In a recent  Police shooting  in Houston, one officer was killed and another wounded while serving a drug warrant. Both officers were standing in front of an open door to an apartment when the shooting began. Tactically speaking you want to avoid standing in front of doors, open or closed. Open doors silhouette your profile while closed doors give your position away to the bad guy. It may sound basic but in a bad guy’s mind they have a 50/50 shot of hitting you if they shoot through the door

Halloween Scares....

  According to the WSJ, here , the scariest thing about Halloween THIS year is 'the supply chain'....now, extrapolate the shortage of Halloween 'stuff' to essential 'stuff....like food.  I was in a local Costco today....went to the refrigerated veggie room, and was totally amazed that it was less than half full.  Anyone who shops at Costco knows the veggie room has a double stack rack for pallets of veggies....many of the first and second layer racks were empty.  The center floor level stack was really small. So, I'd not worry so much about costumes or yard decorations....I'd worry about the people who will look scary naturally once they start to get REALLY hungry and decide to show up at your door with a bag...demanding YOUR food.    Adverse jab effect?  Naaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhh....couldn't be!! An excerpt: "For those who haven’t yet bought costumes and decorations, the news may be grim. Of more than 8,000 consumers surveyed in the first week of Septem

Field Cleaning Kit...

Lots of different configurations out there from none 'I don't need to clean my piece' to 'half my ruck is  cleaning equipment and solvents' when it comes to weapons cleaning equipment. My kit is light, comprehensive, and easily stowed and will clean my tools when needed for a good bit of time without resupply.  It takes care of 9mm/.45ACP (so I can take either, but not both) 5.56, and 12 Ga.  I added a Gerber M4gery tool, some CLP, Springco MG lubricant, patches for both pistol and the 5.56, and a collapsible rod.  Just over a pound, maybe pound and a half, altogether. If circumstances force me to stay away from my normal cleaning 'laboratory,' I've got enough to keep me going for quite some time....maybe the rest of my life. When you put yours together, make sure you don't overpack, and make sure you know how long your piece will operate as designed without cleaning.  Hopefully, you're into chrome or nitride lined barrels and chambers and Nickel
