I'll just leave this here

This comic is basically my previous post, in graphic format.



Be sure to follow the link to read the artist's rant about the show, as he picks up on things I either missed or neglected to mention.

A quick review of NBC's "Revolution"

To paraphrase Monty Python's Australian Wines sketch, "This is not a show for watching. This is a show for turning off and avoiding."

I'm not going to do a long analysis of what's wrong with the show. I'll just hit the high points of what pisses me off:

  • The first episode starts in the modern times when a Plot Device happens to turn off all forms of electricity everywhere. Categorically NOT an electromagnetic pulse, apparently it is capable of affecting the entire world, and prevents things like batteries from working. At least they acknowledge within the show that this is bullshit and, according to physics, shouldn't happen. 
  • Of course, according to Hollywood logic, losing power causes transformers to explode; airplanes to go into flat spins and crash; and turn off cars in a dramatic down-the-line fashion. 
  • Then the series skips ahead to fifteen years later, thereby bypassing all of the interesting post-apocalyptic bits about survival and rebuilding. (A viewing of the second episode shows that we may get bits and pieces of this parceled out in flashbacks. Still, that's 10 minutes of flashback to 40 minutes of show.)
  • 15 years later, and all the kids have remarkably perfect teeth. Their hair is washed, their faces are clean. They have clothes which look BRAND NEW and have undamaged, top of the line, compound crossbows. Apparently entropy only happens to the sets and not the props. 
  • Speaking of which, I've watched "Life After People," and these places do not look like they've been abandoned for 15 years. Five, maybe. It's amazing how good Chicago looks. 
  • Oh yeah, the St. Louis Arch is missing a chunk at about the 2:00 position, but it's still standing. I'm not an engineer but I'm pretty sure this is impossible. 
  • Given all the guns in America, we are supposed to believe that they've either gone missing or have been confiscated by the Militia? But yet these same militia troops are using Civil War-era flintlocks?
  • But the named bad guy has a modern semi-auto pistol. Well that's movie logic again: why would you want to arm your front-line troops with good weapons when you can give them crap and only arm the officers with modern equipment? I swear, it's like this Monroe guy is reading from the big list of villain cliches. 
  • Oh, okay, so the key-fob thing is another piece of Plot Deviceium that somehow turns the power back on... and also apparently rebuilds crumbling infrastructure such as telephone lines, because there is a computer that is communicating long-distance with another. If it's cellular, replace phone lines with cell towers. About the only way this might make sense would be if they were connecting over satphones, in which case I have to ask how the hell they restored power to the satellites in orbit (assuming their orbits hadn't degraded to the point of uselessness or re-entry). 
  • Was anyone at all surprised that the big bad guy was the other man in Uncle Badass' car? I mean, they all but telegraphed it. 
  • Speaking of Uncle, he's one of only two characters who seems halfway competent (the other being Deagle Dude). Two episodes in, and I already want to punch the others in the face. How did any of them manage to survive this long?
  • Flexible morality: It's immoral to kill someone who was trying to kill you, and who will cause you future grief if you let him go, but it's perfectly okay to kill slavers as long as you act angtsy about it later. Sure, that makes sense. 
  • The female teenage lead is basically Katniss. Her love interest is basically Jacob from Twilight, minus the lycanthropy. And so far, the entire series seems to be written at about the intellectual level of a young adult novel. 

I could go on, but you get the point. For all that Cormac McCarthy's The Road was too bleak to be believable, this series isn't bleak enough. I could understand that if this was an 8 pm show, but it's on at post-watershed 10 pm instead. 

My initial prediction was "One-season wonder" but NBC is trumpeting how it's a "hit new series" so it might stick around for a while, increasing in suck. I'm torn between giving up on this show entirely, and watching it like a trainwreck where I can skewer it on a weekly basis. If you haven't started watching it, then please, take my advice and stay away.

It's not Revolutionary; it's Revolting.

Tacticool Geardo Porn

Spent yesterday at the dentist, which was why there was no free icecream. Hopefully some pictures of my tarted-up Sub-2000 will make up for it.


These are the rails I got in the mail on Monday:



This is what my Sub-2000 used to look like:

The one on the left. 


With the addition of the rails, it now looks like this:



Mine came with side rails as well. This is what it looks like with just the default top and bottom:


And with the side rail added.


And yes, it even folds with the rails in place. (Anything up top will obviously have to come off first.)


A full review will come later. The short version is:

  1. The rails are awesome;
  2. The instructions they come with suck;
  3. While it doesn't require gunsmithing, attaching them isn't the easiest thing in the world. My mother would not have been able to do it. I accomplished it with much cursing. 


The aluminum forend with picatinny rails may be found here (when in stock).

Monday Gunday: Shootin' Update

Not a lot to report today, as last week a heapin' helpin' of crazy was dropped on my life and I was unable to make it to the range. However, it looks like I have some good things in store:

  1. Via Google+ I have found a nice lady named Gwen who not only uses the PMR-30, but carries it concealed as her primary weapon because she has an injured neck and cannot tolerate the recoil of anything stronger.  I have asked her to write a guest post about her experiences with this gun, and she has graciously agreed. 
  2. I hope to take my mother shooting this Friday. If so, she will shoot not only the PMR, but also her .380 S&W Bodyguard. This will give me excellent blogfodder. 
  3. I have a tentative schedule to meet with Gun Shop Guy at his private range to shoot the PMR and possibly other things. I would love to finally get a chance to use my shotty. 
  4. A little birdie tells me I will soon receive a set of rails for my Sub-2000....
  5. I'm trying to get Timney Triggers to send me their patented "Drop-in" Mosin-Nagant trigger. Since I've posted my shot groups already, it will be easy to see if the new trigger measurably improves my shooting, and since I'm not especially handy we shall see if they are truly as idiot-proof as the words drop-in would indicate. 
So, it looks like good times are on the horizon as the temperature drops and the season changes from "Hell" to "tolerable". 

As always, if there is anything you would like me to review, or explain in my own weirdly affable manner, let me know!

What's on my Desktop

Because all the other gunbloggers are jumping off bridges...


This is what I have on my desktop. I've heard it described as "Earthporn" by a friend.



Before that, it was a picture of Power Girl.



Before that, it was a picture of the Andromeda Galaxy.

PMR-30 Keyholing Update

Thanks to the due diligence of fellow gunbrony and official Lurking Rhythmically fact-checker The Jack, I have determined the source for the key-holing that occurred during testing:

After extensive testing with various ammunition we have concluded that all remaining key-holing issues have been isolated to one particular brand and weight of ammunition. Unfortunately this seems to be the most common and available ammunition: CCI Maxi-Mag 40gr.
The 30gr and 50gr varieties of CCI shoot flawlessly, as do other brands of 30gr., 40gr., and 50gr. ammunition. For some reason, though, it seems that the 40gr. CCI Maxi-Mag in particular still has sporadic key-holing. At this point in time we have deemed it ammunition specific and recommend trying a different grain or brand of ammunition if your PMR-30 is still continuing to key-hole with an updated barrel.

On the one hand, this is great news.
  • They've fixed the chronic key-holing with a new barrel;
  • They sent me a proper barrel instead of an older version;
  • A 10% key-hole rate for one specific kind of ammo is quite acceptable. 
On the other hand, CCI Maxi-Mag 40gr was specifically recommended in the literature that came with the pistol. While I understand not wanting to change the manual for something like this, the fact that this card was included in the case bothers me:


Come on, guys. If you're going to include a "Oh by the way" card, you need to get your information right.

I'm not anti-other guys, I'm pro-catsuit

Have you donated to Kilted to Kick Cancer yet?  If not, then be advised that brony and holster-maker extraordinaire Evyl Robot Michael has upped the ante significantly:

JayG offered to shave his face
Kelly offered to shave half his ‘stache
Then, Stingray offered to wax his junk
These guys are talking like I’m not even in the room, and it’s very irritating. As of yesterday, I was in third place. As of this writing, I am in fourth, but it’s by a narrow margin. This is not a competition between the three of them. I have spoken with my lovely wife and we have a new offer. 
If I win first place in the KTKC 2012, I will publish a video of the sexy Jennifer.
In a shiny, black, vinyl catsuit. 
Shooting a Barrett M82A1. 
I’m talking multiple angles, with some high-speed stuff. So, who’s in?

So just to be clear, if Michael wins:

  • Lots of money is donated to prostate cancer research;
  • A brony gets nice prizes;
  • You guys get fanservice of an attractive lady in a tight black vinyl catsuit shooting a large gun. 

This is what we call a "win-win" scenario. So donate in the name of catsuit fanservice!

Calling all Hoosier dog lovers!

My dear friend Miakoda wants to share this information:

"Dog-people, I know a lovely golden English Lab who needs a new home ASAP. She's an adult, very curious and friendly, and seems good with children from what we can tell, but she and the Malinois (Belgian Shepherd) she lives with are not getting along. We would love to have her but don't have a good yard for her. Please let me know if you're interested, and I can put you in touch with her owners."

The dog is currently in Elkhart County, IN.  Please contact Shari (or me, and I'll get the message to her) if you are interested.  Thanks!

Monday Gunday: the Kel-Tec PMR-30

The Kel-Tec PMR-30 is, without a doubt, the finest anti-zombie pistol ever made.

TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS (from the Kel-Tec website)

Calibers:.22 Magnum(.22WMR)
Weight unloaded:13.6oz.385.6g
Loaded Magazine:6oz.170.1g
Length:7.9"200.7mm
Height:5.8"147.3mm
Width:1.3"33.0mm
Barrel length:4.3"109.2mm
Sight radius:6.9"175.3mm
Energy (40gr):138ft-lbs187J
Capacity:30 rounds
Trigger pull:4-6 lbs17.8-26.7N


Not that I'd ever want to be within pistol distance of a zombie, mind you; I think they are best eliminated sniper-style, over a range of several hundred yards. But if I had to clear a house in the zombie apocalypse, this is what I'd want to use.

Why? Well, let's start with the big reason: It has a thirty-round magazine.  If zombie movies have taught me anything, it's that you run out of ammunition at a fast rate. With 30 rounds in your gun, you will be changing magazines less often. And carrying extras won't be a problem: the magazine is almost all polymer (I think that the spring is the only metallic component) which makes it very light, and the .22 Magnum round it carries is also very light. Three full magazines would be negligible weight; six would be barely noticed. I imagine (though I cannot prove) that 10 magazines -- 300 rounds -- would constitute a manageable combat load. Bulk would be more of an issue than weight.

Comes with two magazines: one in the pistol, and one spare. 

Actually, I think the real issue would be continued supply of ammunition. On the good side, the .22 WMR is a commonly available (if pricey) cartridge, such that stocking up prior to Z-Day, or scavenging supplies in wrecked Wal-Marts post-Z, is entirely possible. On the bad side, it's a rimfire cartridge, meaning that it can't be reloaded. And the manual specifically says not to use anything but .22 WMR, so no loading it with .22 Long Rifle.

But the best thing about the pistol is that it is screamingly accurate. Bright fiber-optic sights make target acquisition easy, even in dim lighting. The .22 WMR cartridge is essentially flat-shooting, and its already low recoil is further mitigated by a full-size frame.

Sexy fibre-optic sights. 

In short, the pistol handles exactly how you imagined guns worked as a kid: you pull the trigger, there is a flash and a bang, and the muzzle rises a little. There is barely any kick to it, and follow-up shots are fast and easy. 


THE TALE OF THE TAPE
Some photographic evidence to back up my claim. All shooting was performed at an indoor range under artificial light.


A full magazine at 25 feet (left) and 50 feet (right). The last 5 rounds of each magazine were shot quick-fire, to test how easily I could re-acquire a target.  As you can see, accuracy degrades with distance, but since the last 5 rounds were quick-fire, and there are 5 hits in the 7 ring, the decreased accuracy might be due to speed of shooting. 

That's my story and I'm sticking to it. I'm sure a better-trained shooter could wring far more accuracy from this pistol. 





Headshots at 12.5 feet (left) and 25 feet (right); 30 and 10 rounds, respectively. I leave it as a matter of debate whether or not missing the Shoot-N-C but still hitting the head counts as a hit or a miss.



OTHER THINGS I LIKE
In no particular order:
  • The pistol is full-sized but extremely light, yet still absorbs recoil. 
  • Integral accessory rail for mounting a laser or flashlight. 
  • Top slide comes already drilled and tapped for mounting a sight. 
  • Controls are ambidextrous and easy to manipulate.
  • Magazines have windows for every 5 rounds. 
  • Magazines insert and remove easily and ambidextrously. 

Grid squares are 1". 

THINGS I DON'T LIKE
Also in no particular order:

  • The pistol requires a tool (a punch or unspent bullet) to remove a pin before you can field-strip it. 
  • Getting the slide off is a bit of a trick. I discovered that once the pin was removed, racking and releasing the slide was the best way to get it started down the track. 
  • The recoil spring is not the easiest thing in the world to remove. I had to grab the spring, pull it toward the muzzle, and practically wrestle it out of place. Fortunately, putting it back together is much less difficult. 
  • The length of the .22 Magnum round means the grip is surprisingly wide. However,  Kel-Tec can't really do anything about that. 


THINGS WHICH ARE NEITHER HERE NOR THERE
There is a special way to load the magazines, which is clearly illustrated in the manual. If you try to load the magazine the traditional way, not only will it be a lot harder, the cartridges will seize and bind. Do yourself a favor and Read The Manual.


WOULD I RECOMMEND THIS PISTOL
Absolutely yes. It's a bit of a specialty gun, to be clear, but I would recommend it for the following uses:

  • As a farm, kit, truck or trail gun. Not only can it be used on small game, or against varmints such as foxes or coyotes, the muzzle flash and loud bang of the magnum could serve as further discouragement to larger predators such as wolves and mountain lions. 
  • As a training gun for novice shooters who have progressed past .22LR but are not yet ready for the increased recoil of larger calibers. The combination of flash, loud bang, but low recoil would be excellent in helping them overcome anticipatory flinch. 
  • As a self-defense pistol for those who find regular pistols too heavy, or recoil too severe. The only drawback to this is that its full-size frame could make it difficult to carry concealed.*
  • As a sidearm for a zombie apocalypse.

IN CONCLUSION
The PMR-30 is a fun pistol, and you owe it to yourself to shoot it at least once in your life. 
It is a specialty pistol, I grant you, and I would not want it in a war zone (zombies excepted). But for what it is -- trail gun, varminter, trainer -- it does its job very well.


*I think that if Kel-Tec were to sell a model with a shorter barrel and 20-round magazine, it would be a dandy concealed-carry pistol for the elderly and the infirm.**
** A version in .22 LR would probably also sell very well, since the leading semi-auto pistol in that caliber is has a magazine capacity of only 10 rounds. 



EDITED TO ADD:
Yes, I am aware that about 1 in 10 rounds seem to keyhole. Several astute readers pointed this out to me and explained why this is bad. I sincerely thank them for curing my ignorance.

It is my understanding that keyholing was an issue with earlier versions of this gun, and they have since increased the twist rate of the barrel. In addition, the manual makes it plain which ammunition to use.

Per the manual, the following cartridges are also recommended:
* CCI Maxi-Mag JHP+V 30gr
* Federal Game-Shok JHP 50gr
* Winchester Super-X FMJ 40gr
* Remington Premier Magnum 33gr

The following cartridges are NOT recommended, also per manual:
* Armscor 40gr
* Fiocchi 40gr
* Winchester Dynapoint 45gr
* Winchester Supreme 30gr
* Any other Non-U.S. made ammunition

Unfortunately, I was using 40-grain CCI Maxi-Mag, which is specifically recommended by name for "reliable functioning."   Rest assured that I will mention this to Kel-Tec in an email.


SECOND EDIT:  The Mystery of the 10% Key-Hole has been solved. 



Obligatory FTC disclaimer: I received this pistol to test and evaluate for 90 days. No monetary compensation was given for me to write this article.

Kilted to Kick Cancer

Over a year ago I wrote a ranty screed (is there any other kind?) about how I felt it was unfair that prostate cancer wasn't getting the same publicity as breast cancer, and how that should be changed.

I later found out this was ironic timing on my part, because September is Prostate Cancer Awareness Month, and said ranty screed was published on September 1, 2011.

Blue for boys, pink for girls. (Colon cancer's ribbon is unisex brown.)

So now that I am a bit more clued-in to things this year, it also turns out that every September, many bloggers wear kilts all month long in order to raise not just awareness, but also funds, for prostate cancer research. This is known as Kilted to Kick Cancer.

Now since I'm not a boy, I can't wear a proper kilt (and no one would notice anyway), but I can throw my wholehearted support behind those lads who are, and I encourage you to do so as well.

Something to take the sting out

I have to admit, seeing things like this make me feel a LOT better.





There are still guilty parties within the Libyan police and government, but it's good to know that the people in the street recognize this is a terrible thing and are apologizing for it, rather than celebrating.

Well done, people of Benghazi. You are a class act.

Time for a righteous asskicking

You know, all I wanted was a somber, mellow 9/11 where I could be kind of sad and mourn the dead. I didn't want to get angry.

But then, some assholes in Egypt and in Libya decided that it would be fun to invade our embassies. Which, I would like to point out, are considered American soil. This means that yesterday -- on the date of the biggest terrorist act against our country -- two nations invaded us.

There are some who say it was an al Qaeda plot, and that I should be mad at them and not Egypt or Libya. I call bullshit, because whose job is it to prevent protests from turning into riots and then international incidents?  That's right, the police of the host nation. Who, I hasten to point out, did fuck-all to stop their people. 

What's worse, in Libya they actually managed to murder our ambassador, along with three other people, and then drag his body through the streets

So you know what?  Fuck it. I'm back in full aggro mode again, screaming at the TV screen. American citizens under diplomatic immunity have been murdered by foreign agents on American soil, and so far no one has done anything except use mild language to condemn the attacks in a very namby-pamby sort of way, when this is what we should have done in both instances:  



That's right, waste the motherfuckers. Instead, we look like complete pansies because we can't even defend our patch of sovereign soil in a foreign country.

So here's what I say we do: We withdraw all diplomatic personnel from North Africa and the Middle East; we officially close those embassies permanently; and then we implode the buildings with demolition charges, leaving those countries with nothing but a pile of smoldering rubble. If they want to use the real estate, they'll have to haul it all away first.

It's the closest I can come to leaving a gigantic, stinking pile of shit on their front lawns.

Today is a complicated day

I don't have the strength left in me to summon the proper anger any more. I just don't.

If you do, I certainly support your right to wrath. If you are reading this and feel unfulfilled, please take a stroll down my blogroll; many, if not all of the gunblogs are writing memorial posts, and good for them for so doing.

But I ran out of steam long ago. This is still a sacred day of remembrance to me, but the anger has passed and I've moved on through mourning and into acceptance. It happened, it sucked, but I'd rather spend what energy I have on being positive and effecting change in my life.

Much of this is tempered by the fact that last year, United States SEALs were able to deliver wrathful judgement upon Osama bin Laden. A lot of my anger had been about how the figurehead and mastermind of this plan was still at large, living when others far more worthy than he were dead.

But he's dead now, and hopefully in hell being sodomized by a demon's spiked cock.

If you lost loved ones 11 years ago, I am terribly sorry. I will remember them as I remember  all who died that day.  But all I can offer are prayers and sympathy.

I hope this doesn't offend anyone, but I look forward to the day when today is as culturally relevant as December 7th, 1941 -- when all the hate has gone out of it and it is only a day of historical interest.

Until then:

So, about five years ago I tried to start a meme about how Morgan Freeman is sexy, sassy, smooth-talking pimp-daddy. It didn't take off. Turns out I wasn't wrong, I was just ahead of my time.

Behold!

That said, if you like horror, and/or agree that terrible, horrible things should be performed upon the rude "people" who text or talk on the phone in the theater, then you will love this video.

Me? I laughed my ass off. I don't care if you think it's sick or twisted or misogynistic or whatever. I say it's awesome, and I've wanted to do something very much like it on more than one occasion.

On this Labor Day...

... I give you a slightly edited and improved (for clarity) commercial I had in a dream, probably inspired by the day and this news item

Interior: a ledge of wooden rafters against a wall with high windows. We are made to think this is the interior of a church, perhaps Saint Basil's Cathedral in Moscow.

Vladimir Ilyich Lenin (hereafter VIL) steps into frame from stage left. Instead of his traditional black suit he is wearing a tight t-shirt with slacks and dress shoes, hipster-style. The shirt is festooned with colorful designs that simultaneously suggest Tetris blocks, political graffiti, and Soviet-era art. 

VIL thoughtfully takes a few steps onto a crossbeam, then notices the camera to his right. He stops, carefully turns, and addresses the audience. 

VIL:  Modern political fashion can be a bit of a balancing act. On the one hand, a dedicated revolutionary should make every effort to convince other workers that his cause is just. On the other...

Cut to: a scene depicting a bourgeois capitalist pigdog, finely dressed, getting rich off the honest labors of the working man by selling Che Guevara t-shirts to noble, hardworking proletariat for literal buckets of money.

VIL (voiceover): ... one does not wish to give aid and comfort to one's political enemies simply because they control the means of distribution.

Back to VIL, looking straight down the camera, face-only.

VIL: That is why, on this Glorious People's Day of Labor, I, Vladimir Ilyich Lenin, am proud to announce...

Cut to wide shot. VIL's arms spread wide. To either side of him are large workmen, dressed in equally tight t-shirts.

VIL: ... the Second October Revolution! (SFX:  echo and reverb)

(Back to 3/4 shot of VIL)

VIL: Yes my friends! Today is a glorious day! Today, the workers take back style! From each, according to their sense of design! To each, according to their sense of fashion!

VIL begins stalking across the beam towards stage right, knocking over the workers in his way. Those further back, seeing the trend, dive off into oblivion.)

VIL: The workers control the means of production! Without the workers, you have no shirts! Do you truly wish to be seen as ideologically naked in this political struggle of class versus crass?

VIL stops again; head turns to the right to address camera once more.

VIL: (roaring) NO! Down with the industrial bourgeoisie! Up with the industrial  proletariat! Buy Second October Revolution apparel TODAY!

VIL stalks off-camera as the Second October Revolution logo appear: a dollar sign, a hammer and sickle, and a profile of Lenin, each indicative of the letters S, O, and R. 

Voiceover: Available at these fine outlets.

Fade-in logos of stores carrying the SOR brand, such as Aeropostale, Hot Topic, and Banana Republic. Linger for three seconds, then cut. 

Yes, even my dreams are full of satire.

Please tell me that all of you get this. I hate having to explain my humor...

Unboxing

Oh look, a package for me. I wonder what's inside?


Oh my. This looks promising...


Oh ho ho ho! Could it be...?


It could!


It is!
The PMR-30 from Kel-Tec! I have found a way to successfully turn bullshit my writing into guns!

It's larger than I expected, both in barrel length and grip size.

It's very thin, though, and quite light. About 90% of it is glass-reinforced nylon.

Sexy fiber-optic sights.


Well, I know what I'll be doing over Labor Day. A more in-depth review will follow soon after. I plan to have my mother shoot this as well, so as to provide that critical over-65 demographic.

My guy at the gun store, Kirk, was very interested in this. He's sold two PMR-30s, but has never had the chance to shoot one, so of course I invited him along. Not only will that provide me with a nice spectrum of reviewers, but it's always a good thing to have a gun store guy as a friend.

Pew pew pew.

Expecto Patreonum!
