Ruger (original) Police Carbine PC9 — A First Look — R. Doug Wicker — Author

As many readers of my firearms articles may have surmised by now, I’m an unapologetic fan of pistol-caliber carbines. Why pistol calibers in a rifle? Because it just makes sense for a whole host of reasons, unless perhaps you’re a hunter of large game. A 9mm carbine, such as the Beretta CX4 Storm, is a […]

More PC9 goodness. I did not know that there was an older version of this carbine. Cool.

Sorta Blogless Sunday Pinup — Pirate’s Cove

Happy Sunday! Another fantastic day in America. The Sun is shining, the mockingbirds are mocking, and baseball is back. This pinup is by Romain Hugault with a wee bit of help. What is happening in Ye Olde Blogosphere? The Fine 15 The Deplorable Climate Science Blog features Earth Hour in the Maldives Jo Nova highlights…

The pinup girl looks like a Bettie Page homage to me, of which I highly approve.


The average military man cannot hit much with any pistol — Isegoria

Before the war, Dunlap was a competitive rifle shooter: The average military man cannot hit much with any pistol, and as a rule, the bigger the gun the less he hits. That is why Uncle called for the M1 carbine in the first place. In the hands of gunmasters such as Charles Askins, Jr. or…

This is why I’m interested in the Ruger PC Carbine. I generally suck pretty bad with a pistol, but i have a familial tremor I can blame it on, so its not just being shitty for no reason. I’m fair-to-middlin’ with a long gun though, so I’m planning on focusing my efforts there.



Well, That Actually Explains A Lot…

Dwelling on this a moment, one thing becomes clear: many people are immensely deluded. They think themselves two standard deviations brighter than they really are.

In fact, the scores on the Raven’s Matrices were corrected for two decades of Flynn Effect. Without the correction, the scores would still be 1.5 standard deviations too high. Lake Wobegon on steroids.

Back to the main point: people seem to be over-estimating their intelligence by 30 IQ points and their partner’s IQ by 38 points in the case of women doing the judgments, and 36 points in the case of men doing the judgments. People are deluded about their abilities, and deluded about their partners’ abilities. Delusion plus 7 points. This is dreadful, but also highly illuminating. No wonder so many people hate actual intelligence tests.

People who are actually below the “average” of 100 think they’re 2 SD brighter than they actually are.

Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you the Democratic Party of the United States of America.

P.S. The GOP is full of cucks, not morons, but cucks just the same.

Every Picture Tells A Story – Gun Grabber Edition from the Pirate’s Cove

The gun grabbers keep exposing their true agenda on firearms. When you look at abortion, it isn’t about making them “safe and rare”, it’s about allowing them unfettered, no restrictions, right up birth to right after birth. With firearms, it’s not about making it more safe, it really is about disarmament It took New Zealand…

First they take your guns, then they take whatever else they either want or just don’t want you to have. Liberty is not the natural order of things. It must be defended.

Hell, all U.S. Democrats should now move to the paradise that is New Zealand. Didn’t they see Lord of the Rings? It’s gorgeous down there.

Pirate’s Cove had some more girls with bikes in a post dated today, but I much prefer this one from back in February. I did several triathlons, but that is the best looking rig I’ve seen yet.

P.S. Bike Porn can be a serious thing issue for triathletes. You can spend hours and hours on bike sites trying to get that ultimate speedy, yet rigid enough, yet light-weight machine together.
