Let free to kill

From FOX News:

SEATTLE — A traffic stop in the woods led to the shooting death of a U.S. Forest Service officer, a shootout in which a fugitive was killed and the discovery of a third gunshot victim at the home of the owner of a pickup truck he was driving, the Washington State Patrol said.

The FBI was investigating the shooting of USFS Officer Kristine Fairbanks, 51, a certified canine officer with 15 years in the forest service, and the other shootings in the Sequim area were being investigated by the patrol and Clallam County sheriff's deputies, state Trooper Krista D. Hedstrom told The Associated Press early Sunday.

Shawn M. Roe, 36, whose last known address was in Everett and before that in Shelton, had three handguns and fired at least one shot before he died in a shootout with two deputies at a convenience store, Hedstrom said.

Roe was a convicted felon with "an active criminal history" and was supposed to be under state Corrections Department supervision but details were not immediately available and he apparently was not being sought on any warrant, she added.

Another tragic victim of a failed justice system.

Building a symbol of Communist oppression.

Got my 1977 Romanian 'G' AK-47 kit in the mail today. Man, what a beautiful thing it is. The wood is beautiful, the metal is not scratched and the bore looks nice and new. Hopefully this will get put together into a nice rifle here soon. Pictures will be forthcoming.

Where have I been?

Well, it was nice of you to ask. I have been doing roughly the same thing I have always been doing, just being too lazy to post.

In the last few months I have:

Found out that the wife is expecting again.
Taken my 2 year old to his first air show.
Decided that my 9 month old daughter cannot ever have too many clothes.

Bought a new (to me) .22 rifle
Participated in my first steel plate action match
Joined a private shooting range
Bought an AK parts kit (should be here any day)

Also, I have discovered that my 9 year old son is a way better shot than his old man.

Details on some of these to follow.


Thwap.... beep...... beep..... beeep.......

Ok, I am going to try to get some life back in this thing.

Damn I'm lazy.
