Concealed Carry Weapons Permit

I completed the Arizona CCW course yesterday at the Marksman Pistol Institute. An informative eight hour course, long over due on my part. I recommend it to anyone who regularly packs heat. (I do) I did the course because I believe in being part of the solution. Every where in America where CCW permits are being issued crime is on the decline.

I also puchased an Springfield XD .45 on Saturday just because. (Cowboy Blob will groan I'm sure) I did a great deal of research on this and chose it over the Glocks, Sigs, S&W, and the H&K. I shot it during the lunchbreak of the CCW course and like it so far. I am not a fan of polymer guns but the two 1911's I have get heavy after awhile.


BARREL LENGTH: 4.04 inches
OVERALL LENGTH: 7.25 inches
WEIGHT: 30 ounces w/ magazine
SIGHTS: Dovetail front and rear (steel)
TRIGGER PULL: 5.5 to 7.7 lbs. Ultra Safety Assurance (USATM) action trigger system
MAGAZINES: Two stainless steel, 13-round, easy glide magazines
FEATURES: Fully hammer-forged barrel
Easy, no-tool disassembly
Ambidextrous magazine release
Internal parts forged/machine from billet
Visual/tactile loaded chamber indicator
Visual/tactile striker status indicator
Grip safety
Sold with XD Gear System at no extra charge

I like the 13 round capacity and the ease of disassembly.

Anyway, I will take the advanced pistol course as well, I like the fact that I have a better understanding of what rights I have and how to successfully defend them.

By The Numbers

From the L.A. Times

1. 40% of all workers in L.A. County ( L.A. County has 10.2 million people) are working for cash and not paying taxes. This was because they are predominantly illegal immigrants, working without a green card.

2. 95% of warrants for murder in Los Angeles are for illegal aliens.

3. 75% of people on the most wanted list in Los Angeles are illegal aliens.

4. Over 2/3 of all births in Los Angeles County are to illegal alien Mexicans on Medi-Cal, whose births were paid for by taxpayers.

5. Nearly 25% of all inmates in California detention centers are Mexican nationals here illegally.

6. Over 300,000 illegal aliens in Los Angeles County are living in garages.

7. The FBI reports half of all gang members in Los Angeles are most likely illegal aliens from south of the border.

8. Nearly 60% of all occupants of HUD properties are illegal.

9. 21 radio stations in L.A. are Spanish speaking.

10. In L.A. County 5.1 million people speak English, 3.9 million speak Spanish. (There are 10.2 million people in L.A. County ).

(All the above from the Los Angeles Times)

Less than 2% of illegal aliens are picking our crops, but 29% are on welfare.

Over 70% of the United States ' annual population growth? (and over 90% of California , Florida, nd New York ) results from immigration.

The cost of immigration to the American taxpayer in 1997 was,? (after subtracting taxes immigrants pay), a NET $70 BILLION/year, [Professor Donald Huddle, Rice University ]. Thelifetime fiscal impact (taxes paid minus services used) for the average adult Mexican immigrant is a NEGATIVE number.

29% of inmates in federal prisons are illegal aliens.

If they can come to this country to raise Hell and demonstrate by the thousands, WHY can't they take charge over the corruption in their own country?

We are a bunch of fools for letting this continue.


On February 15, 1998, the U.S. and Mexican soccer teams met at the Los Angeles Coliseum.

The crowd was overwhelmingly pro-Mexican even though most lived in this country. They booed dur ing the National Anthem and U.S. flags were held upside down. As the match progressed, supporters of the U.S. team were insulted, pelted with projectiles, punched and spat upon. Beer and trash werethrown at the U.S. players before and after the match.

The coach of the U.S. team, Steve Sampson said, "This was the most painful experience I have ever had in this profession."

Did you know that immigrants from Mexico and other non-European countries can come to this country and get preferences in jobs, education, and government contracts. It's called affirmative action or racial privilege. The Emperor of Japan or the President of Mexico could migrate here and immediately be eligible for special rights unavailable for Americans of European descent.

Corporate America has signed on to the idea that minorities and third world immigrants should get special, privileged status. Some examples are Exxon, Texaco, Merrill Lynch, Boeing, Paine Weber, Starbucks and many more.


Did you know . that Mexico regularly intercedes on the side of the defense in criminal cases involving Mexican nationals?

Did you know . that? Mexico has NEVER extradited a Mexican national accused of murder in the U.S. in spite of agreements to do so? According to the L.A. Times, Orange County ,California is home to 275 gangs with 17,000 members, 98% of which are Mexican and Asian. How's your county doing?

According to a New York Times article dated May 19, 1994, 20 years after the great influx of legal immigrants from Southeast Asia , 30% are still on welfare compared to 8% of households nationwide.

A Wall Street Journal editorial dated December 5, 1994 quotes law enforcement officials as stating that Asian mobsters are the "greatest criminal challenge the country faces." Not bad for a group that is still under 5% of the population.

Is education important to you? Here are the words of a teacher who spent over 20 years in the Los Angeles School system. "Imagine teachers in classes containing 30-40 students of widely varying attention spans and motivation, many of whom aren't fluent in English. Educators seek learning materials
likely to reach the majority of students and that means fewer words and math problems and more pictures and multicultural references."


I remember hearing about the immigrants that came through Ellis Island . They wanted to learn English. They wanted to breathe free. They wanted to become Americans.? Now, far too many immigrants come here with demands. They demand to be taught in their own language. Theydemand special privileges . affirmative action. They demand ethnic studies that glorify their culture.

Visa For No Visa

The New 'Visa' Card?
by J.D. Hayworth

Posted: 02/22/2007

"Money couldn't buy the publicity that the Bank of America has received in recent days. Not money alone, because money isn't inherently bad but sometimes people do the wrong thing to get it.

Sure, cold hard cash is at the root of the B of A's decision to market credit cards to illegal aliens -- a decision that has ignited a firestorm of criticism across the country, and the type of publicity that any business would rather avoid -- but why would a financial institution take up this type of dubious, dangerous business?"

The rest is HERE. I have several accounts with B of A.......Time for a change.

Hey Ya

This video and This one have caught the attention of Navy brass. It seems the two have combined for a whopping 800,000 plus hits on You Tube. This has caused the big wigs to rethink how to reach possible recruits and may use the two videos. Here is the article. Very interesting........

Which media whore has sunk to a new low this week? You decide.
Beyonce, comparing her SI photoshoot to a Rosa Parks size milestone for black women. (Put Whoopie Goldberg on the cover instead)


Brittney Spears, the once nubile Lolita turned trailer trash has been.


Republicrat John McCain, for opening his piehole and proving once again he is definitely not fit for any office.

Craig's list

As a big Ebay junkie I have to admit I have found a new love......Craigslist.

In the last two weeks I have bought a 1997 Honda Civic (daughter) for $3500 and four 225r7019.5 tires for $325 I sold four Bilstein shocks $100 and 65 sets of brake pads for $75 dollars, a 2002 Weekend Warrior for $24,000 and a 2001 Honda 400ex for $2700. Now I am cleaning out the house and selling it all!

And Craigslist is free!

45 Auto's


Saw a new .45 that I may have to get my mits on here and here


Just like the original 1911's saw service against the Moro's in the Phillipines, it seems the .45 is making a comeback to help convince the enthusiastic members of the Religion of Peace to appreciate the old phrase, "There is no replacement for displacement".

Pick One Or The Other

Because you cannot Have It Both Ways. Another example of less for more. Your government at its best.


A man owned a small ranch in Colorado. The Colorado Wage & Hour Dept
claimed he was not paying proper wages to his help and sent an agent
out to interview him.

"I need a list of your employees and how much you pay them," demanded
the agent.

"Well," replied the rancher, "There's my ranch hand who's been with me
for 3 years. I pay him $600 a week plus free room and board.

The cook has been here for 18 months, and I pay her $500 per week plus
free room and board.

Then there's the half-wit who works about 18 hours every day and does
about 90% of all the work around here. He makes about $10 per week,
pays his own room and board and I buy him a bottle of bourbon every
Saturday night."

"That's the guy I want to talk to, the half-wit," says the agent.

"That would be me," replied the rancher.

America Alone

Who cares? If you must read only one book this year, read America Alone by Mark Steyn. It is entertaining, and frightening at the same time. I highly recommend it0895260786_01__SS500_SCLZZZZZZZ_.jpg

Moral of the Story

One day a farmer's donkey fell down into a
well. The animal cried piteously for hours as
the farmer tried to figure out what to do.

Finally, he decided the animal was old, and the
well needed to be covered up anyway;
it just wasn't worth it to retrieve the donkey.

He invited all his neighbors to come over and
help him. They all grabbed a shovel and began
to shovel dirt into the well. At first, the
donkey realized what was happening and cried
horribly. Then, to everyone's amazement he
quieted down.

A few shovel loads later, the farmer finally
looked down the well. He was astonished at what
he saw. With each shovel of dirt that hit his
back, the donkey was doing something amazing.
He would shake it off and take a step up.

As the farmer's neighbors continued to shovel
dirt on top of the animal, he would shake it
off and take a step up.

Pretty soon, everyone was amazed as the donkey
stepped up over the edge of the well and
happily trotted off!

Life is going to shovel dirt on you, all kinds
of dirt. The trick to getting out of the well
is to shake it off and take a step up. Each of
our troubles is a steppingstone. We can get out
of the deepest wells just by not stopping,
never giving up! Shake it off and take a step up.

Remember the five simple rules to be happy:

Free your heart from hatred - Forgive.

Free your mind from worries - Most never happen.

Live simply and appreciate what you have.

Give more.

Expect less

NOW ...........

Enough of that crap . . The donkey later came back,
and bit the farmer who had tried to bury him.
The gash from the bite got infected and
the farmer eventually died in agony from septic shock.
They buried him in the well.


When you do something wrong, and try to cover
your ass, it always comes back to bite you.
