PETA pathetics.

Posted by Lissa on May 4, 2011

Via Best of the Web a few days ago, the PETA numb nuts strike again:

Domestic dogs, cats, hamsters or budgerigars should be rebranded as “companion animals” while owners should be known as “human carers,” they insist.
Even terms such as wildlife are dismissed as insulting to the animals concerned–who should instead be known as “free-living,” the academics including an Oxford professor suggest. . . .
“Despite its prevalence, ‘pets’ is surely a derogatory term both of the animals concerned and their human carers,” the editorial claims

.

I have said it before and I’ll say it again — PETS ARE NOT PEOPLE. We do not regularly castrate people. We do not buy and sell people for money. We do not put shock collars on people. We do not have People Farms (though of course I don’t approve of puppy mills).

As for “wildlife” versus “free living” … I kind of get the impression that someone smoked WAY too much pot. Or dropped too much acid and had an “experience” with a cricket or robin. Just sayin’.

Day 1 of a new holster

Posted by Lissa on May 3, 2011

No, there are no pictures. Because it’s a Galco thigh holster. 🙂

Is it comfortable?

No, not really. It has to be pretty tight to keep from slipping, so there is noticeable pressure. Also, I am not built like a Barbie doll, so there is also, uh, friction as I walk. On the other hand, I find it very comfortable while sitting. And it’s much more comfortable than squeezing a gun into the waistband of my skirts (which were not bought with guns in mind). Bottom line – if you spend most of your day sitting down while wearing skirts, this could work for you.

Is it concealable?

For me, yes. This won’t work with thin satiny materials or skirts with a deep slit. But anything sturdy and especially a-lines work very well. There is a visible horizontal line from the holster but only for people looking really hard. Dark colors help. Bonus – I can hug people without giving myself away.

Is the gun held securely?

Surprisingly, it is! Kevin fits nicely, his trigger guard is completely covered, and there’s no wiggle or movement.

How’s the draw?

Much easier than back-of-the-hip, for me. Much, much easier when I’m seated.

Is there a spot for a spare mag?

No. Which is sad, but then again I don’t know how well it would fit.

Is it hot?

I don’t know yet. I imagine that, outdoors, it would become sweltering pretty quickly. On the other hand, I can’t conceal waistband carry unless I’m wearing a jacket, and that is DEFINITELY hot.

Conclusion: I think this will work! I bought the holster off Amazon so I could easily return it if necessary, but Day 1 is going quite well 🙂

VENGEANCE AND JUSTICE

Posted by Lissa on May 2, 2011

As of last night, Osama bin Laden sleeps with the fishes. He’s probably shark shit by now. Enjoy Hell, you f***er!!

Three cheers for Navy SEALs! Although now we need a P229 Navy 🙂

A heartfelt thanks to President Obama for greenlighting the mission.

I hope the shades of the dead rest more easily.

P.S. I think burial at sea was a GREAT idea, but I have to concur with Mike, who sez:

“Oh and as for burial at sea, I wish they had towed him behind the Cole and just cruised around for a while first”
