Here Come The Judge

“The prospect of tyranny may not grab the headlines the way vivid stories of gun crime routinely do. But few saw the Third Reich coming until it was too late. The Second Amendment is a doomsday provision, one designed for those exceptionally rare circumstances where all other rights have failed – where the government refuses to stand for reelection and silences those who protest; where courts have lost the courage to oppose, or can find no one to enforce their decrees. However improbable these contingencies may seem today, facing them unprepared is a mistake a free people get to make only once.”

Big Punch In A Small Package

Wiley Clapp Ruger GP100

Feed it with any DoubleTap load, hold on tight, then watch things evaporate.

I prefer the 158 grain BONDED DEFENSE load that'll crank out the tube @ 1400 fps or thereabouts. And I had to replace the standard grips with oversize Hogues because my paws are too big and clumsy for the teensy weensy factory furniture.

Browser Game: The Ways of History: Russian Civ Knockoff

If you enjoy playing glitchy, balky, annoying browser games that hurl popup windows at you every other nanosecond, then Ways of History is for you!

I've been testing this From Russia With Hate offering for the past 4 months and it doesn't deserve a genuine write-up, yeah, it's that poorly done.

But picture yourself wanting to give it a go, then landing smack dab in the middle of a country laden with Russians seething at the froth about losing the Cold War. You're going to be attacked without mercy, and poof, there goes your foray into detente shot to hell and back.

I held it together until the commissars decided to introduce popup windows after each and every mouse click, and that's too bad. Because for a glitchy, balky, annoying browser game, it was a way to pass the time on a boring day.

Free-To-Play as long as you really don't want to win. Then you need to purchase luck coins that can take an hour to arrive even though PayPal has sent you the confirming email 2 minutes after your purchase.

Don't bother, brother.
