Need Your Support...

Today is January 19th. One year ago today we learned about the fate of MA blogger TJIC, who had his Second Amendment rights illegally infringed in retaliation for words he wrote in the aftermath of the Gabriele Giffords shooting. TJIC - although never charged with a single crime, let alone convicted - had his MA LTC revoked and was declared "unsuitable" to own firearms. Because of the arbitrary and capricious manner of MA LTC issuing, there is no reason whatsoever needed to revoke one's permit other than the nebulous "unsuitable person" criteria...

In support of TJIC, we recommend that everyone go out and get something related to the Second Amendment. Could be a firearm, could be ammunition, heck, it could even be a $5 pack of targets. Just go out and get something related to the Second Amendment (A Lahti would be nice...). Show support for TJIC and the unAmerican way in which his rights were stripped completely without due process, and show it in the manner most directly related to the situation.

Stretch already complied:

You know who designed that?

I'll let Stretch fill you in on the details:

Browning Hi-Power/P-35
Belgium made.
A finish unknown to me. Possibly ceramic.
3-dot sights.
13 rounds of 9mm goodness that says "My .45 is in the shop."

Any thoughts on the proof marks in the left photo? Store owner says he thinks it was a milsurp weapon but I can't find any country or unit markings.
She's a beaut, Stretch, and thanks for your support...

That is all.

Got mine last week...

That is a Smith&Wesson 581 L-Frame. Six rounds of .357 Magnum goodness... I snapped the pic on the way home from the gun shop. Yep, she was already loaded. What good is an unloaded gun?

Some months ago I had the pleasure of meeting TJIC at the Harvard Sportsman's Club breakfast. I didn't know who he was at first; I was introduced to him by a fellow Appleseed Instructor. We all passed a very pleasant couple of hours on the range - I was horrified to hear what had happened to him and was pleased to stick a thumb in the eye of local authorities and let him get in some range time with my hardware.
