I am low on fodder again. But I’ve been more picky as I’ve matured as a blogger. For instance I didn’t comment on the British Shootings, or the justifiable Chicago shootings and how the gun owners aren’t being prosecuted despite running afoul of localized possession prohibitions. I’ve not explored laws passed or vetoed in other state beside Maryland…
I need to go rifle shooting. For practice, and something to write about.
Maybe I need to make a troll through the gunstores again. To get inspiration on gun types and see what is happening with retail ammo supply now and if it is back to 2007 levels yet.
I got another WWII vet in the neighborhood that is getting on in years that I am friendly with (Not Archie, the crotchety neighbor with a hankering for M3 Greaseguns). And he is a lifetime NRA member. I am seeing if he is interested in maybe parting some of the long guns in his collection. He has a son, but he’s in prison, so if he dies it’s not like he can get his hands on the family heirlooms. He isn’t ready to sell yet. Which I can understand. If I was his age I’d hesitant to part with old friends. It’s not like I have much room in the safe, anyway. If he said “here just take all 2 dozen lever guns and over-unders” as a gift I’d not know what to do with them all. (And I don’t even know what he has. ) Then again, I should ALWAYS have that kind of problem...
I do know that he won't have a closet full of WWII vintage .45s, and Luger war trophies, and what not. From his chats it sounds like he has about what I have, he just got his versions 40+ years earlier than I did. A few pistols, a few more long guns. I don't even know if I'd want to deal with the hassle of pistol transfers.
Any other ideas for fodder?
I wish I could think up a fresh gunblog meme.
Going hunting today - gotta go. more later.
