"It’s summertime and the shooting is CZ. When it comes to this beauteous ballistic Czech mate, you’re in one of two camps. Either you own a CZ and love it or you haven’t shot it yet. I’m in the former camp; I own a CZ 75 P-01. Despite the obvious fanboy joke, my love isn’t blind. Where it counts there’s awesomeness. Elsewhere . . . let’s just say I’ve had to learn the art of compromise. But I’m getting ahead of myself. Pull up a cubicle and listen as I tell you a tale of beauty juxtaposed with horror . . ." ...

I could tell at a glance they were all Army and/or LEOs, except for one, who looked every inch the silent, crazy type. Classmates? Nope. Instructors. It was just the rabbi and me. No ’bout a doubt it: I was going to get shot. Many times. How great is that?"

"Pretty great. I got more from King33‘s Sims class in five minutes than I grokked in the last three years at a square range. No surprise there. If you want to know what you’re going to do in a gunfight, what you should do in a gunfight, you have to have a gunfight. ..." ...

"If you’ve read any of my past reviews, you’ll know that I like Ruger’s guns. They’re extremely generous with their testing policies, so I get to shoot a lot of their products. I haven’t shot a Ruger yet that didn’t meet my expectations and no one does rimfire better. There may be individual products out there that outperform a specific Ruger gun, but Ruger understands the value of the most utilitarian of all chamberings and offers more .22 guns than any other company.

This was no botched operation but a deliberate effort by the Obama administration 'set up as an assault on the Second Amendment.' Crowley, who also made a name for herself by buddying up to Richard Nixon, also agreed with Sean Hannity that this so-called scandal is 'bigger than Watergate.'" ...

"'Voting on strictly partisan lines, a House committee recommended Wednesday that Attorney General (AG) Eric Holder be cited for contempt of Congress for failing to turn over documents relating to the botched Fast and Furious (F&F) weapons sting operation,' cnn.com reports. 'The committee measure now goes to the full House for consideration, expected next week, of what would be an unprecedented action — Congress holding a sitting attorney general in contempt.' Holder’s reaction to the vote was inevitable, obfuscatory and predictable: 'The action that the committee took yesterday was unwarranted, unnecessary and unprecedented,' the AG pronounced. Yes, well, no . . ."

"The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee hearing yesterday ended, as expected, with a strong majority voting to recommend that the House hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress, for his defiance of document subpoenas in the 'Project Gunwalker' investigation. The vote by the entire House could come as early as next week, if House Majority Leader John Boehner (R-OH) can keep his nerve."

"What would frighten Boehner into letting Holder off the hook? Some suspect it is the threat of being labeled 'racist,' for aggressively pursuing charges against America's first black attorney general, appointed by our first black president. Indeed, Holder himself has worked to stoke such fears in his critics." ...

"Assemblywoman Nancy Calhoun (R,C,I-Blooming Grove) voted Tuesday against passage of Assembly Bill 1157-B, which would mandate the practice commonly known as “microstamping” on handgun manufacturers in the state. This legislation would force this costly technology on gun manufacturers and make New York the only state to mandate the technology."

"'Microstamping is a technology in which a tiny imprint is etched onto the firing pin of a semi-automatic pistol. Theoretically, law enforcement could then trace the gun back to the owner,' said Calhoun. 'In the vast majority of crimes committed with handguns, the guns are obtained illegally and are, therefore, untraceable.'" ...

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
False is the idea of utility that sacrifices a thousand real advantages for one imaginary or trifling inconvenience; that would take fire from men because it burns, and water because one may drown in it; that has no remedy for evils except destruction. The laws that forbid the carrying of arms are laws of such a nature. They disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crime. — Cesare Beccaria, quoted by Thomas Jefferson
