I'm an American

Hmm. My mother is from Louisianna. Her parents were Cajun French and German. My fathers family had Revolutionary War heroes on both sides but came from England and Belgium. There was an introduction of Scottish and Cherokee Indian between the War of Independence and GWOT. Yup, I'm an American.

You Are 87% American
You're as American as red meat and shooting ranges.
Tough and independent, you think big.
You love everything about the US, wrong or right.
And anyone who criticizes your home better not do it in front of you!

Kimber Custom II Range Report

Awesome pistol! My uncle was visiting from Louisisana for my father's funeral. To pass some time, we went to the range. One of his groups at 10 yards was less than 1.5 inches. He gave me the ultimate compliment and said that this thing is one accurate gun. I love my 1911. It's much easier for me to clean and strip now after a few attempts. Now it's time for more practice, practice, practice.

Support the Troops

Random Nuclear Strikes has a great post to a link at Primedia. For $10, Primedia will send a 1 year subscription for a soldier, sailor, or marine to their favorite hunting or firearm magazine. I just sent 3 subscriptions. Go with God boys (and girls). Go to the link and send a couple yourself.

Goodbye Dad

My Father passed away this morning. He fought a 4 year battle against a particularly brutal form of cancer called Multiple Myeloma. I'll miss him. I won't miss his suffering. Services are Tuesday. If you have anything that you want to say to your parents, do it now before they're gone. I love you Dad.

MIchael Yon Interview

Hugh Hewitt has an interview with one of the best blogs out there. The transcript is up on Radioblogger (the best kept secret in blogging). Michael Yon has been reporting from Iraq for the last few months. He is a former Special Forces soldier turned journalist. He has a book that is on my short list of reads and has a humble writing style that is refreshing. Michael has a new post up. Read the transcript and the post if you have time.

The Victory Vigil Returns

I'll be spending an hour or so with SMASH and friends for the Victory Vigil. It's a worthwhile effort. With the recent losses in Afghanistan, we've been challenged to do something for the troops this weekend. In addition to a donation to the Special Operations Warrior Foundation, the Victory Vigil is a great way to spend a couple of hours on Saturday. If you're in the San Diego area, come join the fun.
