Squirrels Are Up In The Unity Area

Tuesday, March 24th, 2009

Cindy said the squirrels are up in the area. And I quote:

The squirrels are just starting to venture out. I saw my first one a couple days ago (A big fat one!). I hear they are out pretty good in Hereford and Ironside/Cow Valley which is typical. I’m sure it won’t be long and they will be out here too!

Stock up on .223 and .17 HMR and head for Eastern Oregon people. LOL

See you there…

Yakima Gun Show

Monday, March 23rd, 2009

I went to the Yakima Gun show with the Verminator this weekend, and did pretty well, but it was also kind of weird. I’ve never seen so many guys scrambling to get their hands on primers and gunpowder. After the last show we went to in the Tri-Cities last month, we went over to the Sportsman’s warehouse to look for powder and primers, and their shelves were empty. The same shortage is still taking place, because we saw guys who had primers, selling them for $75 or more per brick, because they could get it, and people still wanted more.

I guess one way to control the part of the population that lives in rural America, and shoots, is to control reloading components and live ammunition. Since they decided to reduce the price of gas, after the economy collapsed, they changed tactics and decided that the next best way to control the rural population would be to take away their ability to defend themselves… or attack; if the Idjits in Washington can’t back off and leave well enough alone…

In the meantime, there doesn’t seem to be a shortage on .17HMR, so I will continue to wage war against sage rats when they start popping up in the spring.
