When I told my mom Toby Keith was coming out with a new album, she was excited. She has the rest of his albums, and my parents have seen him in concert a few times.  When I told her the name of the new album was related to my blog, and I was going to write a post about it, she was excited again.

Although I don’t normally listen to anything other than rap, I can appreciate all types of music.  As far as country music goes I’d have to say Toby Keith is one of my favorites.

Not only does he play a mean guitar, and have a great voice, he also puts a lot of effort into supporting our troops.

The title track doesn’t disappoint:

The reviews on the internet seem to be very positive.  I thought it was pretty funny how even in the great review the Washington Post gave it, the writer had to get an anti-gun dig in by calling the album “regrettably titled”… that’s coming from a guy with a hyphenated surname. I’m imagining an argument the writer had with his wife, who told him that when they got married he had to get rid of his guns and take her last name.  Finally, she agreed to compromise and let him keep his maiden name only if he added hers.. but the guns HAD to go.

Not much happens.. The good gun handling though is notable.

I imagine this would work pretty well at close range.  I wonder if the cartridges can be loaded into the magazine where the staples used to go? Having it feed semi-automatically would be impressive.

Unfortunately it looks pretty dangerous.  It’s probably good that the maker of this didn’t have the “go big or go home” mentality and make a .50 BMG one.

At the age of 88 Ria van Dijk still makes her pilgrimage to the Shooting Gallery. She has been going every year since she was 16 (except from 1939 – 1945) presumably because of WWII. The Camera is triggered by her hitting a target.

Neat idea. It’s interesting to see how she aged, how the style of clothing changed, and how the photographs went from black and white to color.
