Most companies appreciate my douchy 2nd Amendment philanthropy:

Just wanted to say a quick “thanks Mike” for the click-thru traffic yesterday and today!

While I’m sorry that you seem to think our (legal) idea is “probably the stupidest idea you’ve seen in a while”, I am glad that some of your comment-posters don’t have that same opinion.

We will continue to do what we can to draw attention-to and support-for the 2nd Amendment as we know you are in the habit of doing also.

Thanks again for the publicity, even if you didn’t like the idea.

Haha there you go… That was in reference to Defacing Money Like A Douchebag In The Name Of The 2nd Amendment.

Every time I criticize a person or a company, many of you blow up the comments or email me in outrage.  That said, many of you also agree with me. Neither case really matters, because this blog is about my opinion, and the truth is whether it be in favor or against whatever I’m talking about most of the companies or people I talk about in those posts genuinely appreciate the exposure.  There’s the occasional person or company that takes it really personally at first, but they usually end up coming around (or I’m assuming at the very least, forgetting about it anyway).  All sorts of personality types and egos out there, that’s bound to happen occasionally.

I normally don’t ever hear from the really big companies (Glock, Hi-Point etc…) because I think so far they would prefer to distance themselves from guys like me.  For example July 17th, 2012 or as I like to call it “Black Tuesday”, Glock even quit following me @GunBlog on Twitter because I imagine they didn’t appreciate my relentless humor.  The unfollow was enough to know I’m doing my job ;)  If Glock only knew how many people I’ve put onto their magical firearms… I seriously don’t shut up about them if you get me going.

In the end I believe we (douchebags, companies, and other tactical individuals) are all on the same side, which I think can basically be summarized with a sentence like: “Don’t mess with our freedom and guns.”

ENDO LogoAnyway, just thought I’d share that.  Hope everyone has a great weekend.

Head over to Thumbs & Ammo for tons more!

Just wait… some law will be passed (likely in California first) where this will be a requirement unless you are willing to be fingerprinted and undergo a background check before you go to a movie theater.  Ocular pat-downs by the theater staff will no longer suffice.

Linoge from Walls Of The City gets his DIY on like a villain.  I like the idea, and it could also double as a Kydex Condom Holster when you put the camera down from professionally photographing hot babes all day.  Go throw some money at his Honored American Veterans Afield (HAVA) fundraiser / giveaway if you’re feeling charitable and want to win some cool stuff!  I tossed a couple shirts in the mix for that.

I can’t take credit for the clever post title… I lifted it from a good rap track Evidence – It Wasn’t Me, give it a listen!

New from LaserLyte:

This will help you get your technique down before you inevitably have to pistol whip someone for real someday.

Here are some tips for those of you who are new to pistol whipping:

  1. Get the person on their knees.  They obviously aren’t going to want to kneel down infront of you… the solution? Some Bruce Lee style move on the back of their knee caps.  Since you roll so deep, this is actually a good task for a member of your entourage to perform. You’ve got a whole 9 steps ahead of you, energy has to be conserved.
  2. Alright here we go… start the interaction off by asking a really vague or even a rhetorical question.  “Oh you didn’t think I’d ______ huh?”
  3. Next you’re going to want to throw in a statement about how they shouldn’t have messed with you.  This is probably quite evident by now… but still, pistol whipping is all about being dramatic so make this part good.
  4. Tell them that you are in fact going to whip them with your pistol.
  5. Describe exactly what is going to happen and how it’s going to feel.  “The slide of my Glock is going to hit the side of your face and shatter your pretty cheekbone into 1000 fragments and you’re going to taste gunshot residue, regret, and… etc.. etc..”
  6. Ask them if they are ready for it.
  7. Count down from five.   5……4……3 *WAPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPOw*.  Yea you hit them on 3… that’s a total boss move I learned from my dentist.
  8. Over enunciate a really solid swear word or profanity laden phrase, as dramatically as possible while they are lying there bleeding.  This part is absolutely crucial.  Yea they could be unconscious or really dazed, but again this is all just all about looking the coolest possible infront of whoever is watching.
  9. Act like you didn’t enjoy it.  Shake your head, scowl  scoff.  It’s kind of like “cool guys don’t look at explosions”.  You’re going to come across as a herb if you get all giddy that you just laid steel to face.  You’re not a herb are you?  Of course not… you made it to step #9.
  10. Casually walk away, or more realistically get on your badass custom hog and ride away without a care in the world.

LaserLyte-Pistol-Whip-Training-PistolThe Trigger Tyme Pistol Whip Trainer is only $55 from LaserLyte.

LaserLyte, if you read this I’ll definitely consider licensing my 10 tips to you, to include with every trainer pistol.  Contact info in the sidebar.

Thoughts?  Any of you pistol whip vets want to throw some of your own tips out?  I’m always looking to learn something.

Leaked by an anonymous law enforcement source:

Gabrielle-Giffords-AR15-Hypocrisy

“We were told she wanted to toughen her image. She asked to come out and she wanted to shoot a rifle. She had one of our guys out there to show her how to shoot an AR-15.”

Full story over at Brietbart.

Thanks LE-Anon!  If she wasn’t operating (no pun intended… really) on a reduced mental capacity now  (I’m assuming this by her slow as molasses speeches and glazed look) I’d be harder on her.  I still think her AR-15 buying-to-hand-over-to-the-police husband started this whole crusade.

A snippet of Gabrielle Giffords facebook statement:

I grew up with guns, and I like owning them. So does my husband Mark. It’s an interest we’ve shared ever since we met. It’s part of my heritage as an Arizonan and it’s my right as an American. Being able to shoot a gun is something I haven’t been able to do since I was shot – because my right arm is paralyzed, and I’m less mobile than I was.

Riiiiiiight… so you and you husband like guns, but you don’t want the rest of us to have certain types of guns with certain features and certain magazine capacities.  *shrug* sounds legit. *eye roll*

Thoughts?  Oh yea and *dat awkward “I’ve never held a rifle before” trigger discipline*.
