WTF? Over...

I don't get this. McCain is the called winner in Florida. Won South Carolina.

I really don't get it.

His McCain/Feingold was the largest attack on the 1st Amendment in history.

McCain/Kennedy was a massive boost to illegal immigrants.

Need I say the word "amnesty"??

He has a history of fighting against conservative judges in the Senate. He's been shown cuddling up to the Hildabeast.

He believes in the fraud that is global warming.

But here we have this 72 year old, lifetime politician - who's for term limits, by the way - winning.

Granted, since Thompson left the race I'm not thrilled with any of the Republican candidates. But McCain???

What the hell is happening to my Republican party?

Fun with steel

Haven't posted some shooting video in awhile, so here you go.

We shot steel today at the Dallas Pistol Club. Lots of fun. In a steel match, you shoot each stage 5 times. Your worst run is tossed out, and then you add up the time of the stages that are left. At DPC, we usually shoot 5 stages, so that's a minimum of 125 rounds downrange. Since the cost of ammo is going out the roof, several of us have started to shoot steel with .22s - I can shoot the match for about $6-$7 which beats the hell out of what I'd pay in ammo to shoot the same thing in .45.

I'm shooting the Ruger MkIII I got for Christmas with a cheap Tasco red dot scope on it - word on the street is that by shooting with the dot, that will speed up my shooting with the iron sights as well. Time will tell, but it sure is fun!
