Stay away from the Morlocks. California gives away free money.



This is why the Eloi need to stay out of the Morlocks territory.  I'm going to Banana Land today on a shopping expedition,  but I'm carrying my Kimber Custom II.  It's heavy, and it makes my shoulder ache, but it' s better than having this happen.



California giving away free money.  ISYN!  ( I sh*t you not.)




Wonder who is ponying up more taxes to pay for this?



Just a short post this morning, a M is still asleep and I wanted to get one done before we launch out today.  We are trekking to the land of the Aztecs, formerly known as Hall County, because I need to go to the big gun shop there.  Rumor control has it they got in a shipment of "Liberty Model" WW2 Smith and Wesson Model 10 .38 specials.  I want to plunder around, and M wants to go to Belks, then we will go to the bookstore.  Should be a fun day if we are not set upon by "The Latin Kings."


Something dug up Rufus's grave last night. Something big.  It, or they, was big enough to drag the hunks of granite off the grave. My guess is hogs. They didn't get to him though, as he was buried in a secure container. I have been down this road before , and I learned pretty quickly that if you buried one of your pets in the dirt without taking steps to prevent it, you'd wake up in the morning to find that they'd been dug up and eaten overnight.  First thing I did this morning, even before I had my coffee, was to repair the grave and drag some big chunks of logs over it.  This does show I need to get myself in  gear and get some more dogs up here. Tuggy did the same thing I did, slept right through the event.

I saw this video and liked it.  The man has made several and I need to track them down and listen to them.

Yeah, what he said!

  1. maybe you should get Rhodesian ridgebacks or irish wolfhounds instead of the whippets or whatever you call them, lol....yeah, you have to keep your head on a swivel these days. I'm also going back to carrying non-lethal but very painful tools along with my kimber. sometimes they play all innocent until its too late, and if you pull your smokewagon too early its a brandishing charge, that is if you survive the police stop(man with a gun!). you know, if I'd shot all the folks I saw with a gun when I was a cop, I'd be the country's most prolific serial killer in history. now days that's all they require to unload on you. anyway be careful out there. out.

    1. I expect I will wind up looking in the paper and finding some puppies that need a home. I have to have dogs who won't kill chickens or cats, which often means you need to start them out as pups. I still want a whippet, especially since Rufus died and now we don't have an indoor dog. My wife misses having an indoor dog.

      I have a feeling Ridgebacks and Wolf Hounds would be out of my price range, even if there were any up here, and I am pretty sure there are not any other than private individuals dogs. My son and daughter paid several thousand dollars for a German Shepard, and I'm still not over that. Great dog, but surely they had other things to spend their money on! Guess that's the Scotch Irish in me.

      I have an air pistol that shoots tear gas pellets I bought after the great "Rousted by the Black Thugs in Chattanooga" episode. I have that MP-40 air gun that throws lead pellets out there at 450 plus fps. But the MP-40 is not something I can carry under a summer shirt, and that air gun is a big SOB, about the size of a short barreled .44 magnum. Then there's the issue of what happens to a white guy who uses any sort of weapon, lethal or otherwise, to defend himself against black guys, in a city. That isn't going to end happily, for damn sure.

      I've already been reamed in the county because I did have to display my pistol, many years ago, during a run in with a bunch of Mexicans on the highway. When I went to report it, the Sheriff's Department took the view that I was guilty of brandishing a firearm on the public highway, but the Mexicans who ran me off the road were not guilty of anything because there were no witnesses. The Sheriff's Department "let me off" with a "stern admonition." Still makes me feel sour when I think about it.

      You're right, it's dicey, even in states with strong "stand your ground" laws, like we have here in Georgia and they have in Tennessee.

  2. They're not "Liberty" models, they're "Victory" models. All their serial numbers start with a V. (Unless there's some other "Model 10" from WW II I don't know about.)
    And they're not really Model 10s, since model numbers weren't introduced till 1956. They're M&Ps.
    Now that I've released my inner pedant, I wish you well on your hunting expedition. Victory models are fun shooters, as long as you stick to standard-pressure loads. Good luck, good hunting, and have fun.

    1. Hum. I mispoke. You are right, it's Victory Model. I guess I shouldn't do posts early in the morning before the coffee kicks in. They're commonly thought of as a version of the Model 10 here, though I think technically it's a chicken or the egg question and you are right. They are .38 specials, you have to give me credit for that.... ;-)

      When I got over there , the shop had gotten 10 of them in, and some guy bought them all as gun show fodder. There are two in a pawn shop in town, where they will remain because they are in NRA good condition and exorbitantly priced. I did get a good deal on some frangible ammo though, and we had a good time

    2. That's too bad about the Victory models. They're shooters, and they're a good addition to any military or WWII firearm collection.
      Besides their history, you just can't have too many good .38 Specials.
      Maybe you'll come across one that Mr. Greedy doesn't know about. I hope so.

    3. Anytime you hear about something in a store that far away, it's likely you'll be a day late and a dollar short by the time you get there. Especially Gainesville, where nobody goes anymore if they don't have to since it turned into Banana Land.

  3. I have been watching Chad Prather for a while now. He is usually spot on and he pulls no punches. Best of all, I am guessing he makes left thinking heads explode. I like that in a person.

    I look at the rest of it and I have to think that sooner or later right thinking folks are going to say 'Enough.'

    1. I was impressed with the guy, and I enjoyed his video. Glad I ran across it. Believe me, in at least some places, people are WAY past enough is enough. The days of "the Reconstruction" are returning to the rural South. Wild times, then and now.

  4. Take a 4x4 foot piece of fencing or heavy gauge chicken wire and bury it about six inches below grade covering a good perimeter beyond the area directly over the grave, then place you heavy stones over that. I have found that seems to keep the scavengers from getting too far down.

    1. That would work. Never thought of using chicken wire to keep the diggers at bay. We are going to the gravel quarry tomorrow, my wife is incensed that her little dog's grave was disturbed, and she wants some big chunks of granite to put on it. I have chicken wire, think I will employ it as you suggested. You never know what the hell is going to come out of the woods at night, you know?

    1. Belks is still a big deal here, Charlie. At the mall in Chattanooga, TN they have two Belks, the "men's" Belks, and the women's Belks, but you only see women in either of them, because they buy all the men's clothes here anyway.

    1. I have some "black talons" , the one's that caused so much
      B.S. with the moon bats when the ammo came out. Don't know if I would actually shoot them though, they are pretty rare now. Kimber is top flight. I have several M1911A1's, but it's the Kimber I carry when I do feel like lugging one around.

  8. Well, kiss my grits, Harry. I am a northerner like Trump and I think we are pretty exceptional, too!!! All of us true Americans is what makes America great. You southerners have nothing on us! Nothing like running into a bunch of NAPAs with an I.Q. of 60 like Aunti Maxine. What a bunch of low lifes! Sorry about Rufus' grave....

    1. Well, I know there are some good people from the North. Maybe not from New Jersey, Connecticut, Massachusetts,and the other abolitionist/moonbeam strongholds. But Michael is from New York (upstate) and I know a few other good folks from up that way. Truly I always considered that birth in the North constituted a birth defect, but now I am being multiculturalized and learning to have a better outlook towards diversity... >:-( Actually, I always thought of you as a "Westerner" since you really grew up in California before it became the PDRK.

    2. Well, I grew up on Long Island and was a big Roy Rogers fan at the Saturday matinee. When I saw "Sprigtime in the Sierras" I was hooked on the West. We moved out here when I was 16 and have been out West ever since. So, yeah, in that sense I am a Westerner. But I am an 'in your face' New Yorker, too, lol. My DH says it doesn't matter what you carry, just so you carry. Just remember, our country was started by Northerners..heh

    3. I always think of the post English Civil War cavaliers who relocated to North Carolina as the true progenitors of America, the Pilgrims were too stodgy for me. ;-)

    4. Don't think Pilgrims or Puritans. Think Revolutionaries. Think Boston Tea Party. Think Paul Revere....or Concord where the Brits wanted to take the guns.

    What kind of holster are you using for the slab side?

    Also if they have a pile of those Victory .38’s please let me know. I would like one.

    1. It was ok. Didn't get over there fast enough to get one of the guns, but I figure if the word got out here, it must have spread in the counties nearer to Gainesville even faster. There are some Victories in a pawn shop in my town, but they are not in really stellar condition and the old fart that owns the pawn shop wants way too much for them. I will go by today and see if he still has them and what he is asking now, though, and touch base with you.

      I have a good Galco holster, the Miami Classic, and carried the M1911 for years without trouble. But I hurt my shoulder when I fell off a ladder some years back, and arthritis hasn't helped. Now, if I wear the rig for more than an hour or so, my left shoulder starts to hurt. I feel like the old Viking who gave the "Yes, I am old" speech in the second season.

  11. Hey Harry,

    (captaincrunch)

    Sorry I have been absent Harry. Been working on some other projects. 'First I gotta say that its sad that old Rufus passed away but better at your house than a vets office. Had a good life and a great retirement.

    I saw the video above with the Nig Nog's attack and knockout of the guy then seeing him robbed by even more Nig Nog's was pretty sad.
    Just like a heard of Baboons. Its not a racial statement. Its a cultural and behavioral statement. On that note too these low I.Q. wingnuts cant figure out that the Mexicans, Central Americans and South Americans are taking all of their jobs and in another 20 years they will be taking all the welfare from black Americans.

    I am still insulated from the immigrant dirt bags in my area, especially the ones that ride magic carpets.


    I was impressed that the young man that got his grandfathers M-1 Carbine is learning how to reload. that's cool. Its even better that the grandfather was forward thinking and got 4,000 rounds for that thing. Now that's thinking ahead:)


    On YouTube the latest channels I can recommend (a channel on YouTube is like Fox News on YouTube or Hickok .45. You type in One America News and its a channel on YouTube)

    The ones I can recommend.

    Red Ice TV
    Revolting Man (he's in North Georgia)
    Hickok .45
    Poseidon
    WCAMstudios (on the collapse of California)
    Thulean perspective (a Norwiegan survivalist living in the Mountains of France)

    1. It's not racist to "call a spade a spade". I agree with your sentiments 100%. At the latest gathering of the clans (in the Scottish sense, not the "KKK" sense) there was a black guy. I don't know who brought him, but apparently he was of the right political persuasion and these days, that matters a lot. On the other hand, there were no white "niggah wannabees" although we have some of that kind now in town, playing their rap music so loud the vehicle shakes, wearing their hats backwards, bedecked with cheap costume gold jewelry. I see those guys and I want to wield my Samurai sword and slay. But I am civilized these days and just ignore their antics. They're pathetic.

      There are a lot of old coots around here who went heavy on guns and ammo when Bill the Bastard was running the country. Janet Reno probably sold more guns and ammo than any other person who has lived in the last 200 years. Vast quantities of arms and ammunition are sitting in barns and basement gun safes all over the South.

      His grandpa is giving out his arsenal to the kids and grand kids. The guy owns 140 acres of prime farm land, but the taxes are to the point where he can't afford to keep it. So he is selling up, dividing his possessions among the family, and getting ready to check out of this mortal coil.

      I like this young fellow who is motivated to reload. He left Georgia when he graduated from High School (he's 23 now), went out to Texas and worked on a ranch owned by his Uncle. Some of the tales he tells about cattle ranching are hair raising. Then he had a blood clot in his leg, and had to give it up. He came back and is living on his folks farm now, and working a "kill time" job in town while he figures out where to go from here.

      I will check out those Youtube stations, especially the guy in North Georgia.

      I'm glad things are going ok for you down there. I was talking to another fellow via email not so long ago, and we were considering where a man might go and be safe from having a "project" built in his back yard out of the blue. Way down there in South Texas, on the coast, was the one place we could think of. I know you like it down there, and Clive Custler wrote one of his non-fiction books about ship salving off the coast in that area, sure sounded good.

  12. An attack can happen so fast! When I lived in Savannah and Atlanta I kept a knife on me at all times. I took the bus in Atlanta, so one never knows what can happen on a bus or subway.

    We're heading to Arizona. Kind of shitty that it's monsoon season. It may be just as wet as it is here. Boo!

    1. It's absolutely true. I never thought of you as a woman who would carry a blade, but when I think about it, I don't know why. You're a stout heart. Always thought you would have made a good frontier woman, because you put up with all the bumps in the road so well, and never complain.

      I hope you have a good time out there. As you say, they've been having some hellacious rain, I saw on the morning news today that parts of Flagstaff flooded last night.

  13. Hey Harry,

    (captaincrunch)

    I can say this about Texas. The state may turn blue on the outside (democratic governor, senator, etc) but as long as the oil flows the state will be Red at heart. The oil and natural gas industry is immense down here and the oil billionaires and oil market control the policticians regardless of Red or blue.

    In order to make money there has to 'free markets' less regulation and less worker regulation. This is why Texas is beating out Venezuela in the oil market. The work ethic and intelligence is also beating out Saudi Arabia and Russian in the Oil an Natural Gas markets. We can cut the expenses down so much that we can keep running at $25.00 a barrel. Now that oil is $74.00 a barrel a big part of it is pure profit.

    This is innovation in action. The ability to work smarter than the competition in other countries and still be able undercut their market and profit greatly. This is what will keep Texas free!

    Regardless of political outcomes. We live in a petroleum based civilization. The oil must flow. Texas and other states that awash in oil have that attitude of freedom not found in the East Coast, West Coast or many Midwest states. That's why Texas will survive.

    I don't want to see this happen but I think it is inevitable regardless of what happens over the next 80 years or so. I think by 2100 A.D. America will fail. The Union will collapse because we have made the same mistakes as the Roman Empire in its latter stages.

    Texas will keep going because of the oil.


    I see Texas, Oklahoma and many other states forming a coalition many decades from now for the sake of self survival and protection. Those are the states I recommend young men and women move to. Those are the best places to be in North America over the next 100 years. Their offspring will be able to survive and even thrive as a new dark age settles over most of the world in the next century.

    I don't think 'La Raza' will stand a chance in Texas. They want the oil. They have oil in Mexico and they cant manage it. They have oil in Venezuala and they cant manage it. The Latino culture is incapable of proper business and government management. That is why they have plundered and mismanaged their own countries and they want to do that in Texas. 'Oh hell fukking no!
    This our oil and 'Jose you can go find Augusto Pinochet and take a flying leap off of one of his helicopters Comrade. When your in hell.
    Tell Che' Guevera I said 'Hi.

    Texas fought and defeated the Mexican army and Mexican bandits many times in the past. We can do that again!

    Tell that young man with the M-1 carbine that he got from his grandfather to come back to Texas. We need people like him.

    1. I think if we do reach the point where the house of cards collapse, Texas will be a good place to be. At least there, people are largely used to taking care of themselves. I should probably exempt city residents from that broad statement, since they tend to be less self sufficient, and there are large core areas of most American cities today that have become Third World and have no real connection to America.

      He's a good kid, and would be able to take care of himself in just about any situation. I like the guy.

  14. THANK YOU for What he said. Oh my gosh, husband and I have a new youtuber to follow!!! As northerners I have to say I agree with everything he said. While I doubt we have a waitress here by the name of Flo I was recently called "hun" by a local waitress and it made me smile :)

    Also, looks like I missed the post where one of your furry friends left this world. Our condolences. It's never easy :( Even in our populated area we bury them really deep and put stones on top to deter the fox and coyotes.

  15. I'm glad you liked the video. I just ran across the fellow by accident, but I know now, having heard from other folks who follow him, that he's quite popular.

    Yes, our little indoor dog passed away. It really is hard to lose one of your animal family members, especially when you live a fairly isolated life and don't move widely in social circles.
