Fun with Headlines: Reckless Endangerment Edition

Actual headline: Police: Homeowner fired shot because kids wouldn’t leave Accurate Headline: Homeowner fired shot at parent angry he wouldn’t let kids steal his fruit.

Yesterday afternoon the story was pretty sparse, but last night the local Democratic Party ABC Affiliate’s story just said someone shot at some kids in his yard. I thought maybe [...]

Gun Porn: Fixing a PF9 edition

At the bidet shoot this year, which I have yet to write about (bad blogger, no cookie), I had a very disturbing failure with my 4 year old Keltec PF9.

I was taking some videos for a future purpose and I had a failure to extract on the first round I’d shot that day out [...]

Correspondence from Remington says it’ll be 2-3 weeks from the time they receive it, which will probably be Monday. Add in Independence Day and transit times and I’m probably looking at mid-July before I get it back.

Recall box from Remington is on its way

Eight weeks after I submitted my brand-new Remington 700 for the trigger recall, I got confirmation that the box I’m supposed to use to ship my rifle back to them is on it’s way to me.
