Greetings everyone! Time for the Carnival of Cordite!
Unfortunately, time is a luxury I don't have this week. Therefore, this week's carnival is going to be done in "super quick link and go" mode. It's not a slight against contributors (I love you all!). It's just the nature of being a law student near finals time. I hope to be able to devote more time to next week's carnival, really!
So please, make sure you go and check out all the many fine entries below, listed in (sort of) the order received.
The Right Coast brings us guns for Gail.
The Opinionated Bastard explains assault weapons and religion.
Owen needs your help after breaking a brand new gun.
Xavier has been busy! He recommends getting a bill of sale when you buy or sell a gun and teaching our youth. Also, read about a hero in Tacoma and what really happened on the bridge. Find good deals on used shotguns and airguns. Never loan an heirloom firearm to someone near death. And keep a J-frame in your pocket!
Bothenook has a range report with his new Springfield 1911.
View from the Porch has a good article on the SAFN-49.
Jerry the Geek has some great shooting videos and more.
Rivrdog is cautious about "improvements" to the "instant" background check.
Sarah almost J and her fiancee shared a new Thanksgiving tradition: shooting!
Did Oregon's legislature screw up?
NW Republican bagged some bucks!
The Judicator brought home a beautiful Swede! (that could be interpreted the wrong way...)
Anthroblogogy broke down and got some new toys.
The Civilian Gun Self Defense Blog has a handy 50 state comparison guide to the Right to Bear Arms. It's good to know these things, in case justice fails.
PawPaw says you need these three guns for an emergency.
Mr. Completely has been a busy fellow, too! Turn up your sound and go hunt Martians. Learn more about Cowboy and Single Action shooting. In an emergency, you will revert to your level of training. Look out, postal match shooters, because he has a new toy! More here. Don't shoot your eyes out. How NOT to bag a deer. How to properly take down that Mossberg. Postal results. A cool new range box. More here. And try indoor pin shooting!
HEY! Check out M.D. Smith's Reloading Pages!
Les Jones has the scoop on what Uncle Sam wants in a new .45 pistol. (scary!)
Another busy poster is South Park Pundit: freaks and geeks; gun nuts; grip and stance; more on the new military .45; .45 vs 9mm; do you want to buy my gun? (duh!); bear medicine; taming wildcats; and more on ammo day.
Not to be outdone, Countertop Chronicles offers us up a bunch: the start of the shooter's Advent Calender (follow up every day!); gun ad scams; maintain your 10/22 mags; early Christmas; Star PD; and Cops and Tazers and Turkeys (oh my!).
Fried Heels tried hunting.
I hope you enjoyed this lightning-fast Carnival of Cordite! You can catch up on previous issues, and read about submissions and such, here.
See y'all next week!
