Database Shows What Military Equipment Your Local Police Department Has Been Stockpiling

Database Shows What Military Equipment Your Local Police Department Has Been Stockpiling

A database you can query by state/county to see what .mil gear your law enforcement agencies acquired via Defense Logistics. My own county has 18 pages worth of stuff, including a half dozen helos and several pages worth of 5.56 rifles.

The Strange Tale of the North Pond Hermit

The Strange Tale of the North Pond Hermit

Interesting read on the Maine "hermit" who lived off the grid for nearly 30 years (sort of off the grid, given his food and supply pilfering).

Time lapse map of every nuclear explosion ever on Earth | memolition

Pretty amazing visualization. The USA really concentrated most of ours in one area.

One of the comments at the link said what I was thinking: This kid has a bigger pair than a lot of grown men I know.

Why Gun People Don't Trust Anti-Gun People

Why Gun People Don't Trust Anti-Gun People

This editorial is the most well done and concise piece I've read on the gun debate. If anti-gun people want to know why we are so "obstinate", they should read this.

MaxTuck IWB Holster - Natural  Tan Horsehide

MaxTuck IWB Holster - Natural Tan Horsehide

One of the most comfortable holsters around. Great for large frame autos, and the Kydex portion is interchangeable, so you can use the same leather backing for multiple pistols. I carry a full size 1911 with this and barely notice I'm wearing it.

Whiskey With Essence of Hot Chick

They apparently pour the whiskey over the breasts of a hot babe before bottling. Okay then. (NSFW images)

Walther PPQ

Walther PPQ

I've been a dyed in the wool 1911 guy for over 30 years, but recently acquired the Walther PPQ in .40. It's becoming stiff competition whether I CCW a 1911 or this on any given day. Great ergonomics, and the best striker fire trigger out there. Practically 1911-ish :) .
