O'Reilly is an Idiot

I hate commenting on politics but Bill O’Reilly is an Idiot.
I always thought this guy was full of manure, and I’m right. He is an arrogant and ignorant fool with the IQ of a cucumber. I don’t buy his phony books; including the ghost written and flawed Killing Lincoln or any of the other trash he’s peddled over the years. You see, some years ago, he tipped his hand, and on his TV program stated “all semi-automatic guns should be outlawed”. I have never forgotten that statement. I know he is a fraud and a bullying ass. O’Reilly needs to man up and learn the FACTS about gun laws before he opens his stupid mouth and spreads his ignorance. Others can reply to his statements pointing out the inaccuracies. I see the big ugly picture. In his latest disgrace, O’Reilly showed he does not command the facts on firearms laws or the ability to debate civilly. This faux conservative is trying to fool everyone. However I will never be fooled, I know O’Reilly is just another media turd out for his own aggrandizement. He stinks, his show stinks, and his books stink. Don’t be fooled by this charlatan. It’s about time the “Number 1” show on cable news is put on the bottom where it, and he, belongs. If you want to see what a nice guy he really is just check out his “do it live” routine.

Wild Bunch Makes a Positive Change

It appears that SASS has made a very positive change in the Wild Bunch Shooting Rules. The Winchester Model 12 is in! This is an intelligent move! Most of the Winchester Model 97 shotguns is use are actually Chinese copies. It’s great that an original American made shotgun is now permitted. Model 12s may be America’s greatest shotgun. The Model 12 is made out of high quality steel and was basically hand built in its early years. Over 2 million Model 12s were made in over 50 years of production. Another fact is the Model 12 was used in the movie the Wild Bunch. I’ll have to get my Model 12 project gun going now.

Best Gun Handling Actors: Ernest Borgnine

Ernest Borgnine passed this week. He reached the age of 95. It’s amazing to think that in 2012, a man was alive who joined the U.S. Navy in 1935! Ernest joined in 1935 and rejoined after the Pearl Harbor sneak attack (yes that’s what it was) think about that before you buy a Japanese car. He spent the war on anti-submarine patrol duty and training.
Ernest Borgnine obviously learned to handle weapons in the Navy and he translated this skill to the big screen. Ernest was very convincing with any weapon he touched. Movies like “The Wild Bunch” made Ernest a screen legend. I also remember Ernest as the likable LT CMDR Quinton McHale in McHale’s’ Navy in the 1960s. One of his most famous lines comes from his academy award winning performance in “Marty”. “Whatever women want, I ain’t got!” Well, whatever screen legends needed, Ernest had.
