AR15 Lowers With Custom Laser Etching: $150

It is a tough time to be shopping for a rifle these days.  Fear has sent everyone into a panic and rifles and handguns of all kinds are tough to come by.  I'm still holding fast that in a few months everything will be business as usual, and I saw a pretty good deal mentioned at the Armory Blog.  Shadow Ops is offering a custom laser etched AR15 lower for a $150 that is also CA legal!  The downside is that you'll have to wait about six months before receiving your lower.  They are under the mindset that if a worst case scenario bans all ARs they'll still have time to get them completed before the ban goes into effect.  Here are the official rules from their site:

1) If you want your money back and want to back out at anytime, you will be allowed a FULL 100% REFUND without any penalty. If you back out though, you can't come back in.

2) First ordered, first received. If you ordered first you receive your order first.

3) If we can't make it in time, then you get a full refund of your purchase price.

4) We will not ask for your custom EPS logo until your generic lower has been made. The lower can be laser engraved on both sides. DO NOT SEND US YOUR LOGO UNTIL WE ASK FOR IT !!! You will receive detailed instructions on how we need to have your logo sent to us with very specific requirements.

5) DO NOT HAVE A COPY OF THE FFL SENT TO US UNTIL WE CONTACT YOU AFTER WE HAVE MADE YOUR LOWER.

6) YOU NEED TO HAVE ABSOLUTELY AMAZING PATIENCE WITH US. We will be absolutely overwhelmed with responding to this offer.

7) DELIVERY TIME JUNE 30, 2013 or before

I like the idea of custom etching a bad ass My Name Is Foxtrot lower, and engraving on both sides is pretty nifty.  Anyone gonna pick one up?

Rogue American Gun Fighter Vid

Have you heard of Rogue American Apparel?  They make a pretty bad ass collection of hats, morale patches, and shirts.  They have some sweet designs for shirts and they are all printed on American Apparel shirts.  Rogue also has a brand dedicated to firearms accessories called Rogue Gun Fighter.  The RGF website and product line isn't live yet, but hopefully it will go live after Shot Show.  Check out a pretty cool promo vid they made!

Penn Jilette: Intelligent Defender Of The 2nd Amendment

I've had an ear full of the racially mixed, middle aged women deus, discussing political issues complaining about society and offering no real solutions.  I've seen about twenty minutes of The View, and hated every minute.  Apparently there are several of these types of shows, and Hot Talk is one of them.  Despite a name that sounds like a 90's Party Line that you'd see a commercial for past 10:30pm on network TV, Hot Talk follows the same format as The View.  Penn Jilette is a fantastic entertainer and I really enjoyed him on last season's Celebrity Apprentice.  He manages to hold his own amongst these faux news debaters, and presents some great logical arguments.  I know the clip is a little long, but seriously the best thing I watched today.

2012 Fail Compilation

I love a good fail compilation!  This vid is a little long, but it is filled to the brim with fail.  I think the parkour fails are probably my favorites.  Happy Friday, and enjoy the vid.

Stop The Fear And Educate

The tone of the general public seems to be fearful.  Many choose to let the news do the thinking for them and the news sells its stories on potential fear.  Ever hear a tag line for a news program coming up in a few hours?  "Tonight at 8, find out which bottled water manufacturer could be harming you and your family!"  This is how the news has worked for years, and many people I see on a regular basis are afraid.  They are afraid their taxes may increase and that their kids won't be safe at school.

As a responsible gun owner, it is responsibility to educate your friends and family.  I had a conversation a few weeks ago with a coworker about the Sandy Hook tragedy.  Our conversation looked like this:

Her: That guy had a machine gun and he was spraying bullets at that elementary school.

Me: No, machine guns are really hard to get and they cost upwards of $30k.

Her: Really?  I thought he was spraying bullets all over the campus?

Me: No it was a semi automatic rifle, that only fires one bullet per pull of the trigger.  A lot of people actually use that kind of rifle for hunting animals.

Her look showed that of surprise but also understanding.  All she had to go by was the news, and we saw where that went.   Take a few minutes to talk to your non gun owning family and friends and let them know that this AWB really does nothing but punish law abiding citizens.  If we were to compare guns to cars, you could ask why anyone actually needs a vehicle that can drive in excess of 65mph.  Or perhaps has "features" like a spoiler, turbo charger, etc. 

So what abou this evil assault weapons ban?  Well I think Feinstein will try, but honestly it won't go anywhere.  This isn't 1994, and if you got some time The Truth About Guns posted an article comparing then and now.  The biggest thing to realize is that we have the Heller case and the 2nd amendment applies to an individual.  Things will be okay, and not to worry magazines and AW's will be back in stock in a few months.  Keep calm and carry on!
