More bad weather today



We got a break in the weather this morning and this was just over the house.  All this morning after the first front moved out, the AEP Crews, 5 of the local VFD's, TXDOT, the cops, the sheriff's office, DPS Troopers, even Customs and Borer Patrol were out dealing with downed power lines,  and the after math of what MAY have been 2 tornadoes.  One south of town and one north of town.

Right now I've had lightening bolts and thunder that have made the whole house vibrate and shake.  My front yard looks like an Olympic sized swimming pool or a small lake.  Take your pick.

We're doing ok, nothing major damage wise out my way, but I can't get out of my driveway unless I want take the chane of either getting stuck or damaging my engine because in a few areas the water is high enough it might get into the fresh air intake of my S-10.

I really need to get the transmission of my suburban rebuilt.

Bad weather again


I'm just north of the red boxy looking thing.  The county Public Safety center is on their backup generator, two of the repeaters are already off line.  We have small hail and rain now, but south of us there was quarter sized hail and winds in excess of 50 mph.

Four tornadoes were sighted one MAY have touched down by Alice abut 50 miles from here.  I"m shutting down for the night.

Hillary Clinton? Trustworthy?

Guns Show and Air Show this Weekend

This weekend down the road from me in Aransas Pass, there is a Gun Show at the Aransas Pass Civic Center.  Entry is $5.00 for adults and kids free.  9:00 am to 5:00 pm Saturday and 9:00 am to 4:00 pm Sunday.

Also even further down the road in Corpus Christi is Wings over South Texas.  Entry is FREE however there are certain VIP Events which do require tickets for.  For Directions click the Following Link:  Directions to NAS Corpus Christi

I will tell you, that because of all the rain we've had down here in the last 2 months, parking WILL be hard to come by.  Normally there is plenty of parking on the grass however the fields are too wet.  So you might be best advised to carpool in or get there very very early.

ETA:  I forgot about Fiesta De La Flor, a celebration of the life of Selena Quintanilla Perez.  There are 2,000 tickets available for tomorrow however they are first come first served.

PJTV - Shoot Like a Girl? Targeting Women at the NRA Convention



One thing I noticed many years ago when I was working Security for the Housing Authority, we had several women whose holsters didn't allow for a proper draw because their hips angled the holster inward.  A friend of mine who was a police officer and worked secondary at the housing projects with me had a MAJOR problem with that.  We fixed her problem with a "Jacket Slot" spacer. 



That angled the holster outward so she could properly draw her weapon.  However, for her to carry OFF DUTY, there was no holster other than a purse holster which she HATED!  She, like many other women are uncomfortable with off body carry.  It wasn't until the late 90's that holster manufacturers actually started to really design holster specifically for women.  However, even today in 2015, there is a real dearth of holsters compared to holsters for men.

Much of that is simply because men's bodies and women's bodies are DIFFERENT.  Not because of any misogyny or intentional sexism.

A female friend who is a former St. Louis City Police Officer absolutely HATED the SLPD's policy restricting her off duty carry choices.  She could either carry her Beretta 92D, OR she could submit her choice to the Department to try to get it authorized.  She would have to qualify with it, which she didn't have an issue with, however she told me they wanted her to put over 500 rounds through it, on HER time, and she would have to pay for the ammo and the range time.  ORRRRR she could carry a S&W Model 36 or a Chief's Special.  When what she WANTED to Carry was a Beretta 58.  But SLPD's policies made it so she basically couldn't.

So again, there is a real dearth of holsters specifically designed for females as compared to males.  I'm glad to see that there are more and more options becoming available.

Oh and my friend who was with SLPD?  She went on to the US Marshal's Service, then to the FBI.

Alfonzo Rachel - Choo Choo! All Aboard the Hillary Clinton Train Wreck


Moss Pawn - Air Force .45 Air Rifle



I really wish, Eric would do less with the destructo testing and show more of his Velocity and range testing.

For what it is, I think this type of air rifle would be very good for vermin control.

When I used to live up in St. Louis, one of the municipalities had a MAJOR problem with the deer population.  The various Anti's, (Anti guns, anti hunting) would NOT allow for professional hunters to come and thin the deer population, which had EXPLODED.  An increase in deer vs car accident, destroyed yards and gardens and when I left the St. Louis area there was a small but measurable increase in destruction of habitat for other wildlife and disease due an accompanying tick population increase.

They tried trapping and relocating the deer and despite being expensive as all get out, it was actually killing more of the deer the "Anti's" wanted to save.

If you want to know more about that situation google Deer Population + Town and Country Missouri.

The amount of Derp and Herp and general stupidity of the "Anti's" will be self evident to you.

However one of these air rifles, especially an integrally suppressed one, in the hands of an experienced and  professional hunter, would both thin the herd to a manageable size, the meat by law, at least it was, in Missouri would go to the local Food Banks to help feed the needy.

I did leave a comment on the video for Airgun Depot, asking about the possibility of using Saboted bullets in this rifle.  Maybe I'll get a response.

ETA: Airgun Depot responded to my question.

"greylocke100 12:03 PM

+Airgun Depot Would a Saboted bullet work well?Thinking a .357/.358 JHP or PSP with a polymer Sabot should seal properly without damaging the rifling, and should give a little more velocity and range.

Airgun Depot 2:21 PM

Good question, I had planned on trying that while I had the rifle in hand before I sent it to Eric and Chad. I had a hard time finding a sabot that fit just right. The barrel on these is slugged at .457 and all the sabots that I could find at my local sporting goods store where .454, in theory it should work though...if you check out our guide page to the Texan we do have some chronny data for a few different bullet types
http://www.airgundepot.com/airforce-texan.html"



I wonder if a .50 cal muzzleloading Sabot could be turned down to try.
