Hello and welcome once again to the Carnival of Cordite!
Just a few quick announcements before we begin:
Next week, the Carnival of Cordite will be hosted by AnarchAngel. The following week, check out the Carnival of Cordite at The Countertop Chronicles. I should be back hosting here again after that, but I will be seeking guest hosts again from mid-April into May. And then...
There is a very real possibility that, after late May, I may need to consider passing the Carnival of Cordite over to someone else on a permanent basis. I will be spending 6 weeks or so doing NOTHING but prepping for the bar exam, and after that, I may be working in a job environment that is not conducive to blogging.
I am not saying it is GOING to happen that way. I am just saying it MIGHT.
And if the time comes when I must hand over the reigns, I have no idea how to choose a successor. Maybe I'll just have to auction the rights to the Carnival of Cordite off on eBay or something...
Anways... as Ann Coulter would say to Ted Kennedy, let's drive off that bridge when we come to it. In the meantime:
And, meet the winner of the custom 10/22!
Want to know what it could be like to go IPSC shooting with Jerry the Geek? Well, he has video!
Have you heard of Cory Maye? If not, you should have. Read this!
The ATF is out to get your guns, and 60 million gun owners don't care? Shameful!
Ronocracy has been busy this week. Did you know that gun control is racist? Did you know dozens of cops could ransack your property without a warrant? Did you know that American civilians drive sales of military weapons?
Do you reload for the .45 ACP? Bothenook has some information for you.

Meanwhile, Toys in the Attic explores many options, including this:
Which, by the way, is very similar to my own personal choice: a Remington 870 with the 21" turkey barrel and a 3 round extension... now you know!
More on these lines here.
Speaking of shotguns... ever wonder what "gauge" actually translates to in terms of size? Les Jones can answer that for you.
Are you into lever action rifles? Countertop has some exciting news for you:
Mr. Completey (who just won the coveted "bestest gunniest blogger ever" or something!) has also been a busy beaver... First, check out the rimfire roundup. With posts like that, maybe Mr. C. can take over Carnival of Cordite duty from me some day... Then, check out what might be the first amateur blogger review of this:
I've been drooling over these in gun magazines for several years now, but still have yet to handle (or even see) one in person. I'm SO jealous! If you will be in Seattle on March 1, you can hear Mr. C. speak. I wonder if Mr. C. can make it as far as Ohio for a meet-up?
Normally, Mr. C. is the one answering questions, but this time he has a question for you - do you know anything about this?
And from the old to the new, here is video of a state of the art Beretta in action.
Speaking of video... regular readers have seen numerous "guns of" posts that highlight what's being used in movies and television shows. But this might be the first such post I have seen featuring animated guns:
Meanwhile, Hell in a Handbasket discusses guns of The Shield.
Here's some big news about a recent high-profile shooting in Baton Rouge.
Another busy blogger this week has been Of Arms and the Law. We have polls on political affiliation and gun ownership. We have a list of riskier sports than hunting (or, things you REALLY shouldn't do with Dick Cheney!), and for you voting NRA members, information on this year's NRA elections.
Xavier has also produced a lot of material this week. He gives us... The S&W 15:
And while you are there, keep an eye out for a K-22.
Cowboy Blob love his gun pr0n. And these are NOT gun fearing weasels!
Irons in the Fire has a new baby of his own:
This picture is a test... can you guess what this is before you click here and find out?
Next week's host has been busy of late (and despite sickness and other time consuming things, no less!)... First off, check out the new "rat" gun to go with the "mouse" gun:
Stepping away from the guns for a moment, but over to a subject that is important to shooters, hunters, and security folks: can you what's going on over there? I mean way over there? No? Then you need some good binoculars!
Finally this week, Baboon Pirates is going all "Danger Will Robinson" over ammo.
That wraps us up this week. Be sure to check out AnarchAngel and Countertop over the next two weeks while yours truly is on the road. I'll see y'all in a few weeks. Until then, keep your powder dry!
