1. For those of you who shoot .22LR and might be in the market for a good sale on ammo, RI Red sends along this:
Remington .22 Long Rifle Ammunition. US Military contract Remington .22LR ammunition 1990s production. Original packaging, 5,000 round case, consisting of ten (10) 500 round bricks made up of ten (10) 50 round boxes each. The 5,000 round case is over packed in a sealed foil barrier for long term storage. This ammunition has a 40 gr., lead round nose projectile and a velocity of approximately 1135 fps., at the muzzle. NLU is 4S22RSURP-5000 and price is $125 + $24.95 S&H per case. Ammo is now available on the CMP E-store but will not be available in the CMP Stores for another two weeks.
Me, I just picked up 5000 rounds earlier this month; cost me about $50 more than this; same 40 gr. lead round nose style. So it’s a good deal if you want to jump on it.
For my purposes, I really need to stock up on 7.62×51. Hoping to pick up a thousand rounds. I found a good deal on bulk, but I fell a couple hundred dollars short of picking it up during my latest fundraiser. Hoping to purchase it at the beginning of November in advance of the election. Just to be sure. Because, well, zombies.
2. Our old friend Robb Allen who runs the gun blog Sharp as a Marble has a birthday wish in advance of his Oct 15 birthday: Do something nice for others. If that sounds a little new-agey to you, too bad. It’s his birthday, and besides — it couldn’t hurt. I plan on taking some extra time for my oldest on Saturday, maybe go shooting or play a game with him. Also? I won’t put my foot in anybody’s ass that day.
Unless they start it.
3. Via Terry H, “Obama ‘believed he had BEATEN Romney’ in Denver debate – after ignoring advice of top aides on preparation”. Yes. He is that delusional. I didn’t think it was the drubbing some did, but at the same time, all I thought was that Obama’d held serve with the takers who adore him and the women he was looking to shore up with all his talk of education. But to think he won the debate one would have to be certifiable.
So now we know.
4. And finally, two words: ignorant scrunt.
