Missed XI fest, but....

Recommended Posts

Damn, sorry I missed XI fest, by having to make an emergency trip to Indiana and then to Texas a week later and then Maryland a week after that, but....

All the OT allowed me to pick up 2 beautiful firearms!

The fist is a Panzer Arms bullpup 12 gauge shotgun. Came with cleaning kit, sights and 2-5 round magazines.

The second is an absolutely beautiful Springfield Armory M1 Garand. (maunfactured January 1943).

Hated to miss the fest, but allowed me to obtain 2 fantastic firearms.

I have not had the chance to shoot them yet as I am in Boston this week.

off to Hawaii on 11/11/18 for a week next. Then, I will be off for vacation 1.5 months.

I should be able to squeeze a few rounds off by then.

Elvis, the stock has been replaced (not original), but it is gorgeous.

I think I may have a case made to display this one....

Hey there BlackRose,

Need? Do we really need anything?

I purchased these firearms because:

1. To protect my family.

2. To teach my children how to be responsible with and around firearms.

3. My children love to go shooting.

4. I wanted to own a piece of history. (And thinking that my rifle could have been on the battlefield spilling blood!)

5. Holding that Springfield M1 Garand, gives me a whole new respect for the soldiers that carried that rifle into battle.

Here is the little 22lr that my girls shoot. Looks like an AR... It is a Smith and Wesson AR15-22.

And my new Ruger Super Redhawk .44 Magnum with 500 rounds. What a blast to shoot!

I am not sure what it is.. but the M1 Grand brings back memories only an Idiot would love. Having to run in place as my CC yelled, "Get your legs up Hicks" in boot camp. That is as close I got to an M1 grand in action. Plugged and used as punishment instead. Great memories!!! Pain helps you remember a moment.

Gun Deaths in the U.S., 2012-2016

DOT motor traffic deaths

https://www.cdc.gov/washington/~cdcatWork/pdf/infections.pdf

Approximately 1.7 million HAIs occur in U.S. hospitals each year, resulting in 99,000 deaths and an estimated $20 billion in healthcare costs.

If you want to be concerned about preventable deaths, at least give equal time to some of the top killers like ~40,000/year in car accidents, most preventable...or Nosocomial (hospital-acquired) infection deaths at ~90,000 last year...mostly because doctors & nurses don't wash their hands between patients or don't sufficiently maintain cleanliness around an i.v.  When's the last time gun rights protesters were up in arms about 90,000 people needlessly dying because someone didn't feel like washing their hands?  Or about people texting while driving...or applying makeup while on the road....  Didn't think so.
