Suicide is NOT Painless

Back in the seventies, a hit movie (and later TV show) M*A*S*H had a beautiful theme song, called “Suicide is Painless.” That’s a lie. Suicide is not painless. Never has…

Sunday Morning Funnies: 10 Ways to Kill a Pumpkin.

One of my favorite arguments coming from the Lunatic Left, KoolAid-drinking gun-grabbing Progressives,  gun-control advocates is that if you take away private ownership of guns, violence would be virtually eliminated. Um . . . not so much. Consider the humble pumpkin . . .

Question of the Day: Can You Think of Any New Handgun and Rifle Drills?

A member of TTAG’s Armed Intelligentsia named washlefi writes: I’m trying to come up with some new (at least new to my audience) training drills for the handgun and rifle….

Yep. In a world where “bigger is better,” there’s always some enterprising engineer that wants to lay claim to the title. And it seems there’s no shortage of entrants. Of course, I’m wondering if you couldn’t get professional sponsorship for such a competition – say a cabal of chiropractors and sports medicine surgeons. I mean, the possibilities for wrist, tendon, and carpal tunnel injuries alone, would make it financially viable. I think.

How NOT to Teach Your Wife About Handguns

Not sure how much you need to say about a video like this, but I feel compelled to make the following observations…

  • Don’t try this at home.
  • At least, don’t try this at home if you want to stay married.
  • Or if you’d rather that she not shoot you.
  • What in the HELL did she do to him, to make him want this kind of revenge?
  • Now might be a good time to review those life and accident policies.
  • What would you have done if she’d pulled the trigger and you’d cased an accidental discharge of the firearm?
  • You might want to look into professional training for her…that is, if she doesn’t divorce you, shoot you, or need therapy. LOTS of therapy.
  • Hard to disagree with her opinion of you – even if she had done something so bad you felt it necessary to extract revenge.

I got a bad feelin’ about this whole thing, Sundance…

NEWSFLASH! Many people have a hard time with loud noises and grew up without any connection to firearms. These types are frequently extremely sensitive and cautious regarding handguns. Give them the right training and they’ll be fine. Pull some boneheaded stunt like this one and they’ll likely NEVER want to touch a gun—unless they are moved to shoot you for being such a moron. Just sayin’.

Texas Starbucks Robbed At Gunpoint

Lost among the hyperbole of Starbucks’ policy of allowing local custom/laws to determine their position on conceal carry is the question: “has Starbucks ever been robbed at gunpoint?” To which…
