When the Singer Sewing Machine Company Built the Best .45 Pistol Ever Made
Rock Island sold one in 2010 for $80,500 . . .
In 1939, the U.S. War Department contracted the Singer Sewing Machine Company to build 500 1911A1s. The contract, Educational Order W-ORD-396, was a test to see if Singer could produce 100 guns a day, a number it thought was doable. The War Department got its handguns, serial number series S800001-S800500, but the company was unable to live up to the pace of 100 guns a day.
Rather than complaining, the War Department gave Singer something much better to work on. The War Department realized Singer’s pistols were of such high quality that the company was qualified to do more important work, and that Singer’s expert machines abilities would have been wasted on mere handguns.
Washington put the Singer Company to work on aviation-related components that required precision machining, particularly navigation and targeting equipment. During the war, Singer produced components for the Sperry T-1 bomb sight, B-29 bomber gunfire control computers, directional gyro and artificial horizon instruments, and automatic pilot parts. Singer built the sort of equipment pilots relied upon to find their targets, fend off enemy fighters, accurately deliver their bombs, and get home.
Joe Biden to campaign with Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams
Good news for NRA-endorsed, pro-gun candidate Brian Kemp . . .
Former Vice President Joe Biden is planning to join Georgia’s Democratic gubernatorial nominee Stacey Abrams for a campaign event for the first time in Atlanta next Thursday, an Abrams campaign spokesperson told ABC News.
Abrams is running against White House-backed Republican and Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp, who leveraged the president’s endorsement to leapfrog over Republican favorite Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle in May’s primary.
Abrams’ has been thrusted into the national spotlight for galvanizing Democrats’ hopes of a victory in a southern conservative stronghold. She handily defeated her opponent in the primary, scoring more than 75 percent of the vote statewide and capturing all but six of Georgia’s 159 counties, including rural areas across the state where Democrats have struggled to make inroads in their ongoing effort to turn Georgia blue.
Feinstein distorted facts about AR-15, aka ‘America’s rifle,’ NRA says
No…you don’t say . . .
U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein has drawn the ire of the National Rifle Association over claims that the AR-15 – which the group calls “America’s rifle” – is not “in common use.”
In a statement Friday, the NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action called into question the California Democrat’s assertions about the weapon and said the rifle has gained popularity in recent years.
The group cited figures from the National Shooting Sports Foundation. The firearms industry trade group calculated that between 1996-2016 more than 16 million AR-15 and AK-pattern rifles have been available for sale in the U.S.
The gun rights group went on to accuse Feinstein of distorting facts in what it described as the senator’s ongoing effort to limit Second Amendment gun rights.
Missoula to consider expanding gun control measure
It’s Montana, but it’s also a college town . . .
Missoula’s ban on carrying firearms in some public buildings could be expanded under an emergency amendment to a city ordinance that will be discussed by the council Oct. 15.
The emergency amendment is needed if the city wants to prohibit people from bringing weapons into polling places during the Nov. 6 midterm election, and was created at the request of the Missoula County Attorney’s Office, the Missoula Public Library and the Missoula Art Museum, according to Marty Rehbein, the city clerk and legislative services director.
“There has been some concern about open and concealed carry at polling places,” Rehbein told the city council on Wednesday. “So the county attorney’s office has kind of found a gray area in the laws with respect to whether that’s allowed or not.
Giffords PAC features hypothetical texts during school lockdown in ad against Colorado rep
There’s no depth to which they won’t sink in pursuit of their goal of total civilian disarmament . . .
A new ad targeting Rep. Mike Coffman (R-Colo.) for his gun-friendly policies features a hypothetical text conversation between a mother and child during a school lock down.
The ad was released by a PAC run by former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.). According to Politico, the PAC intends to spend almost $1.5 million on TV and digital ads against the vulnerable congressman.
Democrats are optimistic about their chances in November against Coffman, who is facing Jason Crow in Colorado’s 6th district. Cook Political Report rates the race as a “toss up.”
Late breaking –
Bad news – Guess what? *Another* woman is claiming Kavanaugh exposed himself to her.
The Dems are gonna roll out more of this crap untill he gives up.
They will do this to EVERY candidate we put up, out of revenge for not having a vote on Merrik. No matter who we nominate, unless they are a Leftist. Untill a Leftist is in the White House.
My prediction -They will not let us seat a Justice. Period.
I am so pissed off about this bullshit… 🙁
Yep, saw that. My response was to send another email to both of my US Senators telling them that I expected them to get on with approving him.
Me too. Even though both mine are the wrong party I still let them know.
Grassley should drop the Mr. Magoo imitation and get on with the vote. Up or down, yes or no.
Just ask all the democrats saying the women should be beleived without evidence what they think about Jones, Broaddrick, and Willey’s accusations. If they throw Bill under the bus ask about their accusations Hillary helped cover it up.
That will always shut them up, at least as long as the witch is alive.
The thing to do is call their bluff. “Okay senator, you want this woman who says Kavanaugh assaulted her investigated?” “Okay then let’s call out all the women that say that politicians have attacked out, Republican AND Democrat.” “Let’s call out Bill Clinton’s accusers, Cory Booker’s accusers and all of the other numerous Democrats that have been accused, but nothing has been done politicians.” They’ll change their tactics DAMN FAST.
“That will always shut them up” Hahahahahahahah! Double standards>Facts.
Its even got a name now: The Feinstein Rule. Coined by Kim Strassel at the WSJ.
Its when you no longer have to provide any evidence of an illegal or immoral act and can use this as justification to deny confirmation to an appointed position.
Get used to it guys. This is the new normal
These people have the morals of an alley cat in heat.
All of you conservatives in California should make a point of voting for DeLeon against Feinstein.
For Spite. Just hold your nose and DO IT. You won’t be sorry. Every vote matters.
Well, this is what happens when you don’t slap down feminazi pound-me-too bullshit right out of the gate. This shit happened before a large chunk of the voting population was even born. If it wasn’t serious enough to report then, it’s certainly not serious enough to matter now.
This. Well said.
What is good for the goose is good for the gander. If the Democrats COULD prevent Trump from appointing a justice, they might. But that’s a big if.
Repubs control the Senate, House and Presidency. Start acting like it. Use the authority you already have and stop whining the Dems and media will be mad and not like you. Grow a pair.
“My prediction -They will not let us seat a Justice. Period.”
I wonder where they got that idea.
Well, Hannibal, that would be Joe Biden who said GW Bush shouldn’t be allowed to appoint a Supreme Court justice in his last year in office. And Schumer modified that to ‘in a mid term election year”. You people love to set rules for others that you then don’t obey yourselves.
What you people are doing is going to end up in a civil war…at some point.
“You people love to set rules for others that you then don’t obey yourselves.”
^ THIS x 1,000,000
Maybe they should have picked a female nominee, just to block the whole metoo accusations. The Democrats don’t have to convict him, just make him look bad and cast enough suspicion to score points. “See, Trump, Kavanaugh, and the Republicans all rape women, don’t vote for them… He says, she says, he could have all the evidence in the world, the Democrats will cover their ears.”
That would be Judge Amy Coney Barrett.
She’s warming up now, and if you thought that the Kav confirmation was a circus….
You ain’t seen nothing yet!!
Amy Barret is our best bet. This new liberal strategy of accusing every conservative of rape is just getting started.
Amy will get the racist bible thumping fascist treatment, same tactics, same results, different accusations.
“Maybe they should have picked a female nominee, just to block the whole metoo accusations.”
And as mentioned, we have just the candidate.
I’m cool with that, but not enough time before mid-terms.
This had better fire-up our base to turn out and vote, because if we lose the Senate, we are fucked…
I think Judge Amy Coney Barrett would have been the better choice from a Constitutional standpoint and it would have cut the legs out from under just this type of Leftard circus.
weeeeell, the “leftard circus” is many legged creature and in spite of all its tripping over itself, it still manages to kick everyone in the vicinity. It seems that the only solution is to kill it with fire…
If the dems want to push Kavanough out I think Trump should start nominating people they REALLY don’t want on the Supreme Court. Maybe Ted Cruz? Marion Hammer? Rand Paul? James Dobson?
Start throwing those names out as options and I bet all Kavanough accusers will disappear.
Cruz is apparently a sex addict who is so weird that even the gals on Ashley Madison won’t take his calls. Plus there is that thing about how even his friends don’t like him. Just sayin.’
I don’t need to like him. I need someone who can understand the 2A and not give a rat’s patootie whether you like him or not.
If that’s the case then it’s over. The GOP will roll over and just give up.
What I don’t understand, is why women would join a group called,
“Pound me too” I guess it’s somewhat abbreviated by #metoo, but WTF?
Because they’re feminazis and it’s the only way they will ever get a sober man to touch them.
Pretty sure the pounding thing is a lesbo deal
At this point Kavanaugh doesn’t stand a chance. Trump should rescind his nomination so we don’t waste time on a vote, and just nominate a conservative woman so all this ‘Me Too” nonsense gets put to rest from the get go.
Don’t surrender to evil. If the GOP rolls over on Kavanaugh, they lose the battle and the war.
“Never give in–never, never, never, never, in nothing great or small, large or petty, never give in except to convictions of honor and good sense. Never yield to force; never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy.”
― Winston Churchill
This is all part of the script.
And what’s stopping us from just holding a vote and ramming it down their throats?
The Dims tried to Bork Kavanaugh but that didn’t work. Now they’re trying to do a Clarence Thomas on him, times five, by trotting out a whole carload of attention-whoring, drunken skanks.
Meanwhile, the slow coup d’état against the President is being carried on apace.
In any civilized country, every one of the Dims would be put against a wall.
I’m not sure the left would be happy even if Pres. Trump had nominated HRC. After all Trump would have nominated her.
I welcome Mr. Shoot The Pizza guy through the front door with a shotgun to campaign here in Georgia! I am sure he will do a great job assisting Stacy Abrams with running off even the Fudd vote. With his help Ms. Abrams might even get thirty five percent of the vote!
Dianne is such an IGNORANT liar. Damn, woman, there are probably as many accessories and variations of the AR as there are of and for the 1911A1. Lady, you’rea lousy example of a human.
Unfortunately, ignorant is one thing she’s not. She’s a liar and a despicable scumbag with absolutely zero principles, but she’s also a seasoned politician who knows exactly what she’s doing. Don’t underestimate our enemies
“She’s warming up now, and if you thought that the Kav confirmation was a circus….”
Elsewhere it has been suggested McConnell calls for a full Senate vote on 3 days’ notice – no hearings at all.
Hearings are not required; and certainly, if ever they had value, the Ds have destroyed it.
“Elsewhere it has been suggested McConnell calls for a full Senate vote on 3 days’ notice – no hearings at all.”
That’s what I truly hope happens – Just ram him through, the same way the ‘Health Care’ shit-sandwich was rammed down our throats.
I don’t trust our leadership to have the balls to do it…
The vote should have occurred this past Friday.
Runs like a sewing machine…yeah you can’t win with Kavanaugh. But push him through anyway! Geez bringing up high school BS. Anyone as old as me(60’s) change since HS?!? This is a man investigated by the FBI SIX TIMES! And Trump won despite his “past”…sigh.
Push him through without the dems. Show them just how irrelevant they’ve become.
From what has been shown, republicans are not that smart. Could have drained the swamp and put HRC in prison. It will not get any better than this and they are blowing it.
Problem is there’s 4 or 5 Republican senators who are not only RINOs but full blown Demoncrats. So they don’t really have a majority.
Flake, Collins, Murkowski, and who else?
They’ll forever scream he’s a rapist and an illegitimate Justice. But then, they were going to do that no matter what. It’s time Americans fully appreciated that. The Progs are going to scream, riot, and yes, eventually get violent if they do not achieve the power they crave. It’s who they are. Yes, it’s going to be ugly. But the only other alternative is to capitulate, eventually, become Venezuela. That’s worse.
For a while I thought about Montana as a place to retire and began learning about Missoula by reading the internet version of their newspaper. I would call it the Berkeley of the Rockies if Boulder, Colorado didn’t already have the title. Native Montana residents tell me the rest of the state is okay.
I always thought an “emergency” implied some sort of imminent threat.
Evidently it now includes “feelings.”
How times change.
If Feinstein couldn’t lie, she’d be a mute.
Christine Blasey Ford groped me when I was 12.
I’m putting it out there now because I only decided it’s been 25 years so the time is right. I demand an FBI investigation and her to testify in her defense before I speak in private not under oath. I don’t remember where or exactly when it happened but subpoena all her friends and they’ll tell you.
Prove your innocence.
They are destroying a good man’s reputation even if these allegations have any merit. We’re any of the Democratic senators acting so self righteously going to vote to confirm him anyhow? Screw them, get a real constitutionalist on the Supreme Court. I’ll do it and you’ll be BEGGING Kavanaugh to please come back. And I’ll live longer than Ginsburg.
1980s? Shit, 1980s. If it was so important, should have dealt with it then. Lesson learned, instruct and support future generations of women so they don’t make your mistakes.
What a $h!+ show circus 2020 is going to be. I’m not a conspiracy guy, but I doubt everything I’m told now. Will the accuser against Cody Wilson be a 3-d plastic printed girl with an embedded speaker manipulated by Shannon Watts? How can I be sure?
Wats touched me in a naughty place when I was 12… I don’t remember where or when exactly, but that should be enough to ridicule her out of the public arena? Right?
Hmm… robotic sex victims with AI indistinguishable from normal humans. Like terminator but sex bots intead of killer androids. It’s so bizarre but it’s probably the future we’re facing. I think at this point it’s more likely we’re facing outright lies, and honeytraps though.
The NRA missed the “subtle” point that Fineswine was trying to make. She didn’t dispute that there were millions of these rifles in circulation, but contended that despite common “ownership”, they were not in “common use,” i.e., that people don’t use them for hunting, so they just sit in a closet or safe somewhere, and therefore can be banned. Talk about rewriting U.S. v. Miller!
Yeah, I caught that. I have been meaning to write Miss Piggy (the Fineswine) to advise her that even if our AR-15s are only commonly being used to hold down the carpet in our safes, she will find out just how commonly they are used for something else if she ever gets a law passed, and sends her minions out to collect them.
They won’t round-em-up right off the bat, they’ll ban new sales, registration of existing ones, and then confiscation…
Registration? Based on how badly that failed in New York, even that Communist knows that ship has sailed.
Advise away, but I’d bet my last dollar she knows already.
There was a congressman named Gerry Studds from Massachusetts that served during the 80’s and 90’s . He had admitted to having an affair with a 17 year old boy. He was only censured . It did not hinder his career with the voters or congress.
I don’t know what Kavanaugh did happened or not but I would think that one should first be convicted in a court of law of what they are accused of . That is what I would only believe.
The problem is that there are too many angry feminist holding office with an agenda.
“The problem is that there are too many angry feminist holding office…”
FeminNazis, that’s the proper term…
“I don’t know what Kavanaugh did happened or not but I would think that one should first be convicted in a court of law of what they are accused of .”
So would I, but that ship sailed decades ago. Statute of limitations, and all that.
The thing is, though, in the court of the public press, a decision of “not guilty” isn’t possible where a Republican (especially one connected in any way with Trump) is involved.
So he’s “guilty,” without a trial. Even if confirmed, he will always be considered unqualified by the Dems because of that.
As with the “nuclear option,” that will come back to bite them in the future.
Any chance that the CMP will get a Singer?
The alleged happened before either of them were 18. Was there a police report? They were both minors – if it happened, it is over.
If I was shot in the face by some lunatic I’d bet I wouldn’t like guns either.
Did you know that Stacey Abrams received a Legislative Livestock Showdown Grand Championship for showing a 1000 lb. heifer named Bessie at the Georgia National Fair?
And if Stacey gains a few more pounds before the next show, she won’t need the cow.
Re: DiFi’s Mewlings
Comments above are accurate, and off-point. Yes, she’s morphing “use.” I’ll counter-claim that sitting around “just in case” is exactly the “use” of defensive fire arms. When you buy a fire extinguisher having is is also using it … to reduce your risk.
BUT, that’s all off-point. On-point, what can we do to move some votes with this? I think calling her a liar, for something that looks like a lie, dirties her up. I can think of few in of the anti-people propagandists I’d rather have dirtied up for the liars they are. Chuck-y maybe but he lies about everything.
DiFi lies about guns & gun control. Make her make the case that *this time* she’s not lying. See, the AR-guns aren’t in “use” because they’re just sitting there. Really, reducing my risk because it exists isn’t use? We’ve heard of deterrence, right? So, lyin McLiFi, what else were you lying?
Every time they say something that sounds stupid, rub it in. Mention it every time. LieFi said what about guns? I gotta ask: the truth you might know on your own, but crap she makes up could be anything.
What, guns are weird and bad some new way? Glad she got that out there. Would hate to have to wait a couple months for her to bring it up.
