Old Canuck

I purchased this Smith and Wesson .455 Mark II Hand Ejector 2nd Model. Made in 1916 for the Canadian Army to fill in for an arms shortage. S&W made about 15000 chambered in .455 Eley for the British and Canadian Armies. This particular one, like many others had the rear of the cylinder milled down to accommodate .45 ACP. This ruins it collector value but adds to the versatility as it will now shoot .45 Long Colt,.455 Eley, .45 Auto Rim, and .45 ACP.

I took it to the range today to see how the old Canuck would do. I had a couple of fizzlers in the Marksman reloads that I shot, other than that it is a great shooter!



Gonna keep as a SHTF gun, if it is .45 and will fit, we are good to go!

The Hips Don't Lie

"Secondary sexual characteristics convey information about reproductive potential. In the same way that facial symmetry and masculinity, and shoulder-to-hip ratio convey information about reproductive/genetic quality in males, waist-to-hip-ratio (WHR) is a phenotypic cue to fertility, fecundity, neurodevelopmental resources in offspring, and overall health, and is indicative of “good genes” in women. Here, using fMRI, we found that males show activation in brain reward centers in response to naked female bodies when surgically altered to express an optimal (~0.7) WHR with redistributed body fat, but relatively unaffected body mass index (BMI). Relative to presurgical bodies, brain activation to postsurgical bodies was observed in bilateral orbital frontal cortex. While changes in BMI only revealed activation in visual brain substrates, changes in WHR revealed activation in the anterior cingulate cortex, an area associated with reward processing and decision-making. When regressing ratings of attractiveness on brain activation, we observed activation in forebrain substrates, notably the nucleus accumbens, a forebrain nucleus highly involved in reward processes. These findings suggest that an hourglass figure (i.e., an optimal WHR) activates brain centers that drive appetitive sociality/attention toward females that represent the highest-quality reproductive partners. This is the first description of a neural correlate implicating WHR as a putative honest biological signal of female reproductive viability and its effects on men's neurological processing."

Been telling my wife of twenty five years this all along.

Horace Greasley RIP


Horace Greasley, who died on February 4 aged 91, claimed a record unique among Second World War PoWs – that of escaping from his camp more than 200 times only to creep back into captivity each time.

Cowboys and Indians

RKBA in India

"I feel safe wearing it in my ankle holster every day," said Verma, 27, who runs a family business selling fire-protection systems. "I have a right to self-protection, because random street crime and terrorism have increased. The police cannot be there for everybody all the time. Now I am a believer in the right to keep and bear arms."

"To illustrate the point, gun advocates refer to a 2008 incident in the state of Madhya Pradesh. The clamor for gun licenses was so high, according to news media, that officials tried to induce men with large families to participate in a vasectomy program by promising a license in return."

Shootin blanks to get a chance to shoot live ones.......ouch

RKBA does not lend itself to America alone. This may be premonitions of things to come here.

The Intolerable Acts 2010

The Intolerable Acts revisited to include the current crop of Liars, crooks, and thieves..............

"Intolerable Acts. The very sound of such words reeks of a tyrannical villainy that exceeds the “run of the mill” oppression normally associated with a bloated, out of control government. However, it also reeks of something else: A people who believe they deserve better and are unwilling to tolerate the tyranny, regardless of the ramifications of resistance. Despite the insistence from our president otherwise, we descend from a good, decent and independent people. However, our government, unable and unwilling to acknowledge this fact, is re-instituting a policy of Intolerable Acts, and we need only consult our wise ancestors in order to discern the remedy."

My Little Pony

I picked up a Colt Model 1908 Hammerless Pocket .380. This one was made in 1927 and is a real beauty. One of the first CCW pieces that was not a Saturday Night Special.

At 24 ounces and 6.75 inches long it can be concealed with ease.
