personal defense fantasies

Posted in survival, weapons with tags on October 14, 2011 by Word-Drum

Hey you gun nuts! What is your minimum and maximum personal defense/survival needs?

Ideally, guns are about the right tool for the job. If you can’t have all the tools my feeling is a 45 with high capacity is necessary for personal defense. I could be dead wrong, but for human targets, a spray of 45 ACP rounds can be as good as a shotgun blast.

A good 45 and a backup pistol would make me feel secure. Then a rifle for hunting is needed if there is a Semi-State of Emergency: where food distribution is stopped.

If we go Code Red and it is something like a State of War, then you would need a rifle. My choice would be a AR-15 (or a real M16) with a grenade launcher. With plenty of ammo for each firearm, I would at least have a fighting chance.

P.S. I noticed there were very few used FNP 45s for sale on line. None in the style I want. Folks must like the FNP and are holding on to them(I want to hold on to one too). On the other hand, a fancy 45 I wanted a year or two ago, the Para ‘Gun Rights’ with a 14 round capacity, was being sold for half price.

This is not an extended drum solo here at Word-Drum. My beats and phrases are carefully measured. Here’s what I can say about events and their aftermath on Saturday in Tucson, in my Home State of Arizona:

Sheriff Dupnik is a disgrace and I have no faith in him.

Gabrielle Giffords seems to be one of the few decent liberals and the only hope for the Democratic Party.

But the liberal spin against conservatives after the massacre is cause for alarm. It only makes sense to liberals.

Welcome to Crazy Town.

When Hitler is one of the killers favorite authors and he tries to kill the first Jewish Representive from Arizona, how can you blame Sarah Palin who is a friend of Israel and the Jewish People? Not to mention the murder of Republican Judge Roll.

 Small Point Gun Stuff

The bedraggled Sheriff of Pima County also got his facts wrong about the magazine for the Glock 19. The wigged-out puke, Jerry Lee Loughner, must of loaded one in the chamber and then refilled the magazine. It holds 30 rounds, not 31. The reload would of given him another 30 shots, not 31. Or he had a 33 round magazine, but since he started with 31 shots before reloading, I guess he had 30 round mags(+ one in the chamber for the first and final magazine used in the slaughter).

Trying to take him out would be very difficult using the full metal jacket rounds that he used. You would have to get on top of him and shoot down, or you would also hit innocent bystanders (since the bullets can go straight through the body).

One security person(armed with hollowpoint ammo) standing beside the Congresswoman would of made all the difference. But that doesn’t matter now. Now we pray for the complete foiling of the evil plot: When Gabrielle Giffords returns to Congress.

The Left think the American People have no memory. But we do. Like a jilted lover, we remember all the lies told. We cannot bear anymore but White Lies. The Big Lies must stop.

Leaving Crazy Town.

Black Five:

Concealed Carry is Counter Terrorism by Uncle Jimbo

excerpt:

…I do not recognize the right of any individual or group to disarm me. So regardless of what rules petty bureaucrats may enact, I will retain my right to self defense. So when Ahknard pulls out an AK, I will take dead aim and he will eat multiple .357 cal 125 gr. semi-jacketed hollow points. This type of response is most likely to happen in red state areas and if the jihadis had any intellectual firepower they would concentrate their efforts in Chicago, NYC and DC where the government has disarmed the populace. The only thing they would have to look out for is the well-armed and extremely violent gangs in all those areas, but they would have plenty of defenseless sheep to slaughter. Weird huh, how the most gun-controlled areas in the country have some of the worst gun violence. We probably just need a few more laws, or regulations.

(Update for Kurt)

It comes with three 14 round magazines. If you are going to pay 700 bucks, the extra mags are a nice touch. FN USA

warming my xd

Posted in weapons with tags , , on December 23, 2009 by Word-Drum

I went out in the snow to try out my new LaserLyte Rear Sight Laser for my XD.

Even with all the hot air coming out of Copenhagen, Washington and Hollywood, the ice is barely melting here in sunny Arizona.

I had to shoot in the shade of a tree to see the laser. It works well but I think I need to have my sights aligned. I wasn’t sure if it was my aim that the rounds tended to fall low and to the right. With the laser I can always put it close to where I aim. I will take up the offer from the gun shop to sight it for me. I spent over $300 there, also purchasing a ProMag 20 round magazine.

Unfortunately my pistol misfired several times. That never happened before. It could have been the ammo. I started shooting with Winchester and had no problems using the new 20 round mag and my 16 round mag. Then I loaded some Federal (from Walmart) and I started getting jams, and when the mag emptied the slide didn’t open.

This is strange because I’ve shot nearly 500 rounds of Federal ammo with only one or two times when I pulled the trigger, nothing happened.

I cleaned off the nasty carbon emissions in the pistol, and will try again when the weather clears (unless the liberals stop the warming). Then I will write further on the laser and it’s awesomeness.
Update: 1/4/10

Went to my spot in the mountains today. The laser works great. I don’t have to aim at all. I can shoot even more accurate from the low ready position.

Without the laser my handling of the pistol is getting better. I was either gripping too tight or using too much finger. I’m feelin’ it and ready for action.

I experimented with ammo and again found that the 20 round mag does not work well with the cheap stuff. It works alright in the 16 round mag that comes with the XD. I’ll use it up for target practice and stick with the better stuff (my carry load is Magtech since it was the most expensive).

It was good experience dealing with jams. It’s not a big deal. Putting a little extra oil in the winter time seemed the right thing to do. The cold making it evaporate faster.

hi-point 45 acp?

Posted in weapons, word-drum with tags , on October 29, 2009 by Word-Drum

45ACPEven with no jack, I’m still searching for a 45. I have hope and change. Not quite enough change, but I only need about 200 bucks to buy a Hi-Point 45 ACP. The Black Monster is looking pretty good. It’s big Mother made by Americans, for the working man.

Please leave a comment if you know the weapon. I’ve only seen one negative video on YouTube, Every review is positive and owners all seem to like it. It’s not pretty, but it gets the job done.
