2nd Amendment Target On Tour

This is the second stop of the TOT, or Target on Tour celebrating the 2nd Amendment. I received the target from Bullseye, the American Drumslinger after I won it from him on EBAY.

This time all I ask is you either write a short post on the merits of the 2nd amendment, or come up with a great quote or anecdote in the comment section. I will leave this open until next Tuesday evening October 4th. I will pick a winner and then move this on its way to the next state at my expense! You sign it, come up with a way to promote it and ship it down the line. Have at it.

Not one comment so far. This is indicative of why America is on the fast track to extinction. Not even a mention of the NOLA gun grab. Maybe this blog does not reach readers interested in protecting and defending their right to bear arms. How dissappointing.

Trespassers will be shot,
survivors will be shot again.
Remember, gun control means being able to hit your target.

Cheer up Billy Budd. I'm sure your philosophy on life is very similar to mine which is "BE PREPARED and COVER YER ASS". If America is headed in the direction that I think it is, and widespread social unrest should occur, I say, let the damned lazy uninformed slackers fend for themselves!

I don't remember the exact wording, but that quote about "you can have my gun when you pry it away from my cold dead hand." Something like that.

My .38 stays loaded with hollow point. No trigger lock to delay me from pulling the trigger when someone comes through my front or rear door that is not welcomed.

When I moved to Alaska after spending most of my life on the East Coast, I was amazed to learn how easy it is to purchase a handgun. No permit required, no five day waiting period.

I purchased a Ruger Super Redhawk, .44 magnum, with a 7 1/2 inch barrel. I shoot 200 rounds every week at the range the state runs down the street from me. The other day, seven co-workers joined me; two first time shooters were there. We're thinking about starting a gun club at work.

I'll be suplimenting the Ruger with a Glock. Don't groan. Glock gives a huge discount to active duty military. I can get a full-size .40 S&W for under $400. They support the military; I'll support them.

I used to carry my cell phone with me, in case I needed to dial 911. Sometimes I leave it at home now. Did I mention that in Alaska, if you can purchase a handgun [and almost everyone can] you can carry it concealed? No permit or license or fee necessary.

Isn't that the way it should be? [sorry for the length of the post... got on a roll]

That Is precisely the way it should be. My zip code here in Arizona is #2 in CCW permits for the state. Crime is waning in my neigborhood. The poster could be headed your way.

If awarded the target, I intend to unload a clip of 30-06 Springfield ball ammo into it before passing it on.

I guess we are headed to Arkansas!

Here in Arizona this Yuman being got his first semi auto pistol from his father-in-law before he passed away. His Anti aircraft unit had the Germans in Italy backed up against the Po River when a short demonstration of what the quad mount fifty caliber can do convinced the German company it was time to surrender. One officer tossed his pistola in the river not counting on a what Louisiana bred country boy can do. My father-in-law being much younger at the time jumped in the river and came up with his second captured officers weapon of the war. One brother-in-law who just retired from the Army has the first one. A cute little nine mm short (.380 to us) Berreta and I have the restored nine mm Luger caliber FB Radom that I placed third in one shootin contest with. The weapon is now retired to home defense back up weapon and looks remarkably like the Colt 45 that the patent license was used to manufacture it with in Poland. It was made in the year 1935 before the Germans took Poland and the use of those weapons made there.
