My Message to youtube

My Message to youtube

Just read of your new firearm policy, and am quite disturbed with the read. The firearm content I enjoy watching is primarily educational and informative. I would like to know why it is now against your policy to post instructional videos on reloading ammunition and assembling firearms. Both are perfectly legal activities and completely safe to do when done correctly. Depriving educational videos and instruction from those wishing to get into these hobbies could make it far more dangerous to the beginner that will no longer have valuable instructions available to him from your platform.

Taken to the extreme this policy will outright remove all firearm content from your platform, which seems to be what you wish to do.

I do not believe it is a valid justification to silence pro gun members of the community because at the moment firearms in general are a controversial topic. I just read youtube mission statements and this policy contradicts every aspect of those statements. I (obviously mistakenly) took you at your word that you wanted to give everyone a voice. When one side or the other is silenced it is not condusive to an honest debate.

I have always liked Google/Youtube, but this decision is extremely discouraging to me. However, It is your business to run as you see fit. With that said I will continue to use your products (until something better comes along) albeit doing so in a way as to reduce as much as possible any profit you may make from that use.

By the way when this goes into effect I expect to also see ANY video with a link to Wal-Mart removed as they still sell firearms.

Will the gun grabbers ever get it?

Will the gun grabbers ever get it?

They come out in droves to attempt to ban firearms every time a some whacko massacres a group of people. I concede that these are horrible events, many of which can be prevented. Banning the tool they’ve chosen to use however is not the answer, as they will find another readily available tool as an alternative. As it always does, when the gun grabbers get vocal, it creates a panic buy on the gun market.

Their latest buzz term is “common sense” gun reform. So let’s use some common sense.
1) The second amendment gives law abiding citizens the right (not to be confused with need, which they like to twist contort into their argument) to bear arms. This means gun bans are unconstitutional, period.
2) Enforce laws already on the books to keep firearms out of the hands of those that are insane and out of the hands of criminals.
3) Ensure that all agencies responsible updating the NICS database are submitting all required records.
4) Resign to the fact that you cannot legislate morality. Those intent of doing evil will do evil.

Finally Broke Down And Installed a Water Softener

Finally Broke Down And Installed a Water Softener

Needed one since we got this place, just couldn’t find the time to get it done. …OK, I would rather do just about anything besides plumbing. Took me most of the day a couple trips for the hardware store, but it seems to be working fine. Did I mention I don’t like plumbing?

Got a New Wet Tumbler

Got a New Wet Tumbler

Been looking at these for a while. Cabelas has a great rice on them this week http://www.cabelas.com/product/PLATINUM-SERIES-ROTARY-TUMBLER-L/1811194.uts. Now I just need to turn some ammo into dirty brass to see how well it does.

I suppose I shouldn’t be so picky, but I wasn’t reloading very long at all before I realized that I wasn’t really satisfied unless my reloads looked nearly factory new.

My Tablet Died This Weekend

My Tablet Died This Weekend

I have a Asus Zenpad Z10 on its way to replace it.

When I got my first tablet (G Pad 7) I didn’t figure i would use it very often, but it was more or less given to me when I signed up with a new Verizon account. Its kind of slow and small, but what can you expect for a dollar?

Turns out I use this thing fairly regularly (OK a lot). When it died, I realized how much I actually do use it and that I needed to replace it pretty quickly. Bummer, the Verizon stores don’t keep them in stock. I told Aaron at the store he was now in a race against Amazon to see which came first, the tablet or the case and screen protector I was going to order when I got home. He has a 45 minute headstart on them. We’ll see who wins, my money is on Amazon.

I’m still young at heart, but my eyes must be getting older, so I was looking for something a wee bit bigger. I think this should fit the bill. Anyone heard much about them (good, bad, or indifferent)?

New Toy

New Toy

Went to Ride 1 Powersports to look at a Goldwing F6B a couple weeks ago. The only one they had in stock was white. I don’t care for white vehicles and didn’t like the looks of it.

Walking past other bikes they had a couple previous years’ CTX1300 with a reduced price that caught my eye.

Had no intentions of buying anything, but after calling the wife to make sure I would be safe to come home, ended up driving one of them away.

Stock it came with no back box and a completely useless windshield. After those additions, and getting enough miles on it to get the break-in oil out, I’m really loving this bike so far.

Just Ordered Some New Steel

Just Ordered Some New Steel

From shootingtargets7.com. Don’t know who runs this place or the website but his sense of humor can’t be beat.

For instance their policy for not selling email addresses: ” We will never share your email unless you are a member of ISIS, in that case we will forward it to Seal Team Six.

Or the free fitness training for USPS and FedEx Drivers
