I wonder if there’s a more emasculating experience for a would-be burglar than being held at gunpoint by a naked senior citizen. That’s what happened to a man who broke into a San Diego man’s home early Tuesday morning. Keith Groves heard a couple crashing sounds at 4:22 a.m. and jumped out of bed to see the kitchen window broken and the garage door open. He sleeps without clothes, but didn’t bother to grab anything but his handgun. (Click on the image above or here for the video. Sorry ladies, no nudity.) He went outside to find a guy standing next to his classic ’32 Ford Roadster smoking a cigarette. He said he tried to be as “bad looking” as he possibly could, telling the guy to freeze and yelling to his neighbor to call the cops. A few minutes later, he heard sirens, and the bad guy was carted off to jail. Groves says from now on he’ll keep a pair of shorts by the bed.
A Connecticut man, who would probably consider himself an ally of ours, has been charged with inciting injury to a person or property and second-degree threatening for allegedly threatening the life of CT Governor Dannel Malloy. The Register-Citizen article makes sure to point out that David C. Ragozzine is a “gun enthusiast who had the weaponry to carry out an attack,” a proponent of free speech, and a prepper while telling us about the Facebook post in which Ragozzine made a veiled threat against Malloy, saying the governor needs to be “taken out.” Although Ragozzine later backpedaled from his statement, saying it was misunderstood, the actual quote — “We need violence, we need to take out the scumbags. Locally, Malloy needs to be taken out. He must pay in blood for the crimes he has committed…” — sorta belies his denial. In the meantime, he’s been ordered to not possess any weapons, not to use computers, and to have no contact with the governor or the governor’s office. As far as being a confederate of mine, if he thinks that’s the case he’s in for a rude awakening.
From The Tactical Wire – West Valley City, UT- SilencerCo and Noveske Rifles announce a multi-faceted partnership to make the best rifles in the world even better. To start with, every Noveske rifle going forward will feature a SilencerCo muzzle device – Trifecta RS flash hider or muzzle brake – ready to mount a SilencerCo silencer. The first Noveske rifle (8.2″ 300BLK Gen 3) featuring a SilencerCo muzzle device was auctioned this past weekend at the NRA/ILA live auction in conjunction with day and night optics and a hog hunt in TX. In addition, all lowers for SilencerCo’s Saker 556 promotion, which ended January 30th, will be provided by Noveske. Customers can expect their lowers to arrive by the end of June. Finally, the SilencerCo sales and marketing staff will shoot Noveske 5.56 and 300 Blackout platforms for live fire demos and content creation.
The Yankee Marshal is a strong proponent (and the originator?) of Every 2nd Matters, a program that advocates for gun rights by open carrying or even empty-holster carrying on the second of every month with the goal of inviting conversation and raising gun awareness. This month he brought his camera with him to record any encounters he happens to have while open carrying.
The day was much ado about nothing for him. Do any of you do anything like this?
hickok45 gives us a tour of the KRISS Vector SBR, suppressed with an AAC Ti-Rant. It’s not exactly my bag, but it’s interesting. I’d shoot the heck out of it if someone bought me one.
