Fifty million Americans are missing!

January 22, 1973. American service personnel were dying in Vietnam, as America acted to prop up the South Vietnamese government under the Domino Theory. Back home, war protests were going on, illegal drugs were all around us.  
Things are pretty much the same now as then, except . . .

Small pistols and revolvers - constant companions

In a recent post on handgun stopping power, I mentioned that the first order of business is to be armed. In that post, I mentioned the NAA mini-revolvers. These are about as small as one can go with a firearm. NAA has a new player in Beta test right now, that they call the Ranger Breaktop. This iteration of the mini-revolver adds the break top action of the Smith and Wesson Schofield to their .22 Magnum model. I wish I had thought of that. . . . Actually, I did.

Tuscon shooting

The tragic shooting yesterday in Tuscon has fingers already pointing at conservatives and at legally armed citizens as well. 

The fact is, political assassinations have been a part of human history since antiquity.

It will be interesting to find out what kind of juvenile record the perp had (if any). It seems obvious that he is no more normal than the killer at Luby's Cafeteria.

For more details on the gun used, check out Beregon's Bar. H/T to SayUncle for the link.

Ruger to introduce new .22 Magnum pistol?

Not that I know of,  but Ruger has apparently cloned another Kel-Tec, the PF-9.

First it was the LCP which took the KT P3AT configuration, and added a slide stop. The rest, as they say, is history. LCP sales have been very successful.

Then, the Glock OS with the addition of a manual safety gives us the SR-9, which is, in my opinion, a sweet gun.

Now, with much fanfare, comes the Ruger LC9. To me, it appears to model the PF-9, with the addition of a manual safety. Michael Bane's video review is HERE.

So, why not a new .22 Magnum auto-loader, with a few 'improvements' on the KT PMR-30.
- - -Maybe a magazine safety (yuk), and a striker fired system; and lets go whole hog and add a .22 Long Rifle conversion kit in the box. All for a MSRP of $499. This would be a real poor man's Five-seveN.

Seriously, I think LC9's will sell like hotcakes for Ruger. Recoil will be snappier than the SR-9's, but certainly softer than the LCP's. 

Now, to see who's packing some real big heat check out MJM.

UPDATE JANUARY 2013. If you like the idea, contact Ruger Customer Service and let them know.

Curly fry light bulbs

Do you remember when cleaning up a broken light bulb involved a broom and dust pan? Well not any more. Common sense has gone out the window, with environmentalism gone awry. Common Cents explains why.
