No one will hear the velcro! Those SF guys are always thinking.

If you haven’t heard of PostSecret, it’s a ongoing community art project where people mail in their secrets anonymously on one side of a postcard.

I had the privilege of seeing an exhibit at an art gallery a few years ago.  The postcards range from funny, to downright disturbing. These military ones seem like no exception.  It really gives you a glimpse into what people are like below the surface.

There are a few more examples on the PostSecret website – HERE

How come I was not aware of this earlier? Oh right… I was 3 years old when the movie came out.

The movie is called Top Secret!, and it stars Val Kilmer. It has 7/10 stars on IMDB and it actually sounds pretty funny… I might check it out.

Hopefully no one thinks handling guns like they do in movies like this is actually acceptable. :P

The five female members of Texas Christian University’s national championship rifle team got a shout out from Obama on Monday evening at the NCAA sports champions celebration at the White House; “We’ve got the sharpshooters from the TCU rifle squad. Where are they?” asked Obama as the team members, standing near the camera risers, screamed. “I think that they may be able to give the Secret Service a run for their money.”

Obama told the TCU team members that he, too, practiced shooting with a rifle. “He said he practiced with the Secret Service,”

Full Story – HERE

I don’t know he practices often, but it’s interesting to hear him acknowledge that he has shot with the Secret Service. Regardless, that is about the only cool thing I’ve ever heard him say.

Some hilarious stuff from Reddit user BattleHall:

  • President Obama is anti-handgun… because he knows that a handgun is only good for fighting your way back to your rifle.
  • Obama’s deep, dark secret isn’t that he’s a Muslim, it’s that he’s a gun nut. He has a prayer rug, but it’s embroidered with the image of John Moses Browning.
  • Obama scoffs at the 9mm vs. .45 ACP debate; instead his CCL authorized a tactical nuclear strike.
  • Sometimes, when he’s bored, Obama sends Sarah Brady anonymous gift wrapped packages containing a bottle of Hoppe’s No. 9.
  • After the election, he let everyone freak out and start buying up ammo because he was still sitting on a pallet of corrosive Bulgarian .380 that he got roped into buying at the Knob Creek shoot back in the 90’s, and he’s been trying to unload it for years.
  • In exchange for letting her plant an organic garden at the White House, Michelle has to let Barack keep his prized Dillon XL 650 in the West Wing; no single stage for him, he’s a progressive.

You know what the 1st Rule for a Gunfight is:

  1. Bring a gun. Preferably, bring at least two guns. Bring all of your friends who have guns.

“So Barack, who’d you bring?”

“The United States Marine Corp.”

“That’ll do…”

If you are running out of sneaky hiding places for guns, this might be a viable option… Hide one in a book.

There are a couple of rules of thumb I can think of when it comes to choosing a book:

  1. Do not choose a childrens book for obvious reasons
  2. Do not use a bible.. thats just poor taste even if you are not religious
  3. Do not use a good book.. one that someone will want to take off the shelf to look at
  4. Do not use a book that someone will want to borrow
  5. Do not use a book you think you might ever want to read, or re-read

Come to think of it.. “Barack Obama – The Audacity of Hope” is probably a good choice that will make sure you’re safe on all above points

What you need:

  • A book you don’t care about
  • 2 thin pieces of wood a bit larger than your gun
  • A scroll saw or jigsaw
  • A drill and drill bit
  • A hammer
  • Some finishing nails
  • Rubber cement (optional)
  • Felt (optional)

Instructions:

  1. Trace the outline of your gun onto one of the thin pieces of wood (remember this is your template, so leave extra room if you want for your hand so you can pull the gun out easily)
  2. Take the book and separate out the pages that you want to be the core of your hiding spot (it’s recommended to leave at least a few pages on the top and bottom untouched for looks)
  3. Fold the back and front covers towards each other so they are out of the way
  4. Position the wood with the outline of the gun on it ontop of the pages you want to saw through
  5. Position the other piece of wood at the bottom of all the pages you want to saw through
  6. Hammer a few finishing nails through the top piece of wood, making sure they go all the way through the book and into the bottom piece of wood
  7. Make sure the nails are not sticking out the bottom piece of wood. If they are tap them back a bit, otherwise they will interfere when you are trying to cut out the shape on the saw
  8. Drill a pilot hole along the edge of your gun outline through the whole stack
  9. Start the cutting from this position and slowly work your way around the gun outline
  10. Once you are done cutting all the way around the outline you should just be able to pop the cutout piece out
  11. You have your new gun hiding spot!
  12. Optional: Paint the inside of your cutout cavity with rubber cement paste and line with felt
