I Know This Tune

I see Midway is rapidly running out of primers for reloading. I've just picked up 13,000 of various types, which isn't much if one is seriously paranoid, but is probably more than enough if not planning for the full Mad Max scenario.

Shades of 2008.

Got out yesterday and put some rounds downrange. Sadly, it was all .22 rimfire. While any shooting is better than none, and .22 rimfire is good for training and the pocketbook, it lacks something. Namely, recoil.
Guess it's time to start getting the loading gear out the moving boxes. The Dillon 450 was the first one I dug out, and since it has the .38 Special dies in it.............Looking at it, I think I'll tear it down and detail clean it. Don't know it's ever been done, as I bought it used at a gun show, where it wasn't much cleaner than it is at the moment. Carb cleaner, WD-40, and axle grease. Because I'm all about the expensive custom cleaning stuff.

Responsibility: A Problem For Other People

After reading this article in the local paper, it strikes me that if those interviewed are actually representative of the area, we have some significant problems.

It appears to me that most of these people have no concept of how our political system was designed to work, that political parties differ because not everyone thinks as they do, and that a government that can rapidly enforce change and ensure full employment will be totalitarian, which will bring an end to this whole notion of speaking your mind in public.

But most of all, there is overwhelming desire to have someone else take care of problems. And that never ends well although most people seem to forget government's actual response to disasters as soon as normality returns and are shocked when the same performance occurs in the next response.
