Redneck campfire tales

Ah, there is nothing like a goold ole Redneck campfire . . .

Nothing like sitting around a redneck campfire the roasting puppy peters on a stick:

The best trigger pull action

It’s hunting season in NC and the smell of gunpowder fills the air, reminding all Americans to support our 2nd Ammendment right to bear arms:


We all have the right to bear arms

Janet loves her Ruger .357 GP100, a lovely gun for the gracious lady, feminine but not pretentious.

Best of all, it’s extremely well-balanced with a trigger pull of about 3 pounds and feels as smooth as snot on glass:

I wanted a rifle, but I wanted a versatile gun with these characteristics:

– Switch to cheap ammo: I’m cheap, and .223 caliber ammo runs 60 cents each for long range kills but you can get a .22 conversion kit (for about $230) allowing you to shoot six cent bullets!

– Fast switch between manual sight and scope: The AR15 has a great manual sight up top 200 yards with special sight clips to change sights from manual sight to a high-powered scope without loss of zero.

I would feel like an idiot using a scope to shoot a rat at 100 yards.

The best rifle to fit my needs is a Colt AR-15 heavy barrel match target rifle, allowing you to kill a home intruder at up to a third of a mile away.

Unfortunately, I found the AR15 trigger to be a hard jerky pull (4 pounds), gritty and spreading my patterns.

The inherent mistakes in limited testing

Different people see things different ways, but narrow-minded people only see things in one way.

The old saying is quite true:

“When all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail”

That’s why it’s important in science to take a look at the whole picture, never relying on a single test case to infer the behavior of a universe:

This image is a perfect example:


A question of perspective is fixed by adopting multiple viewpoints

Funny advertising product placement!

I love the primitive product placement that keys-in on a search phrase, often with hilarious results.

Today’s word is Anatidaephobia – The constant fear that you are being watched by a duck.
