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 […]
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…
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.
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.

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…
