and you voted for....?

My friend and neighbor popped into work today stating that she needed to buy a gun....

"I need to get a gun"
Me: "Oh. Something going on?"
"No, I just heard something about not being able to buy a gun soon."
Me: "I see... and whom did you vote for?"
"I voted to protect my lady parts."
Me: "You are a typical American voter, persuaded by some shocking commercial without educating yourself on the possible facts."
Me: "You disgust me."

Me: "See you at 4."

That's what friends do, but I hope I made her think a little bit. I don't hold back, I've always told people how I feel and a friend gets it the same. I don't care how anyone voted if it's what they really believe in and they know the facts. There are a lot of people who are reading the headlines since the election that wish they could change their vote (including many people I know and/or work with). Fail.

When I drive over to the gun store, I will ask her what type of gun she wants and what she wants to do with it. She will reply, "9mm, something to keep in the nightstand in case I'm home and something happens."

I love when people say that. Especially when it's someone who doesn't lock the doors at all. Numerous phone calls about letting her dog out and of course the house is always unlocked. I have a key but I've never had to use it. Then of course the whole gun in the nightstand drives me nuts, it's not like you are always next to the nightstand. How about strapping that thing on all the time? I mow, make bread, vacuum, play computer games, etc. and I'm packing.

I know, small steps...


  1. I fully expect such episodes to get worse. Wait till the tax increases hit in January or just before when the MSM decides to finally start covering it.

    1. I'm already planning on being out about $200 a month in January. I've enjoyed the money but always knew it wasn't going to be around forever. I think I've spent it wisely on preps.
      Time will tell I suppose.

  2. Have my 9mm strapped on today for the first time. It's an odd feeling, but I want to get used to it. My wife asked me today if she could get one. Times are getting scary to say the least.

    1. Mudbug! Nice to see you around, hope all is well down on the Z ranch.
      Soon your 9 will be like a wallet, there and not noticed but easily removed and emptied!
