October fundraiser: this time it’s personal. And also, October [sticky; new posts appear below; FRIDAY UPDATE; final Monday update]
Help support the notorious and unsupportable; help fund the demise of polite and self-destructive GOP status quo politicking and the rise of outlawish Visogthisityism; and give the Devil his due, on the outside shot you can win a shiny fiddle made of gold (which, let’s face it, that ain’t gonna happen; I can fiddle like Nero while my reputation burns): it’s three, three, three mints in one!
Plus, it’s a month before election time. Romney’s flush with cash, and the media’s in the tank for Obama (though mentioning the obvious is practically racist). So it’s not like this thing hasn’t already been decided one way or the other.
Either way, I figure I’ll need MREs, some sort of dugout or bunker complex, and more ammo. For when NOAH and the IRS start going door to door armed with all that .40 hollow point they’ve been hoarding.
Thanks in advance.
Friday update: Thanks so much to all who’ve donated this month! I’m about 2/3 of the way home, which is a marked improvement over this time last month. I’ve also noticed some new names among the donations. This gives me hope that I’m somehow making it around some of the boundaries that have been put in place against me.
Likely the fact that I’m using porn tags to get traffic here. Come for the (missing) titties, stay for the spirited and unapologetic discussion of hermeneutics, classical liberalism, and foreign policy seances!
Okay, so I made that last bit up about the porn tags.
You’re pretty sure.
Monday update: Thanks again to all who’ve contributed. Because of your generosity — and because of my hatred of zombies, should they come my way — I’ve been able to increase my practice with my rifles. At 75 feet, using 7.62×51, I believe I’m now able to shoot their teeth out one by one:
..and at 300 ft, I’m getting much better (note: two separate groupings on this target; I was fine-tuning my scope):
Shot both targets off a swivel bipod that converts outward from a pistol grip. Little bit of cant allowed in the design, as well. No rear stabilizer or sandbag. Just cheek and shoulder.
Next up: Standing shots.
Been getting some pointers from a former Special Ops buddy. My breathing control has gotten a lot better, as has my deliberate completion of the trigger pull.
The SCAR-17, let me tell you, is an awesome rifle. And the GRSC 1-6x scope I put on it is about as good as it gets from 10ft-1800ft. Seriously. Stands up to the $2500 Elcan, and is priced 150% less.
