5 Guns

The current meme floating around the gun forums and blogs is "What five guns would you own if money and other considerations were not a factor?". I've decided to play along and my choices are as follows;

1. Thompson .45 SMG- I'm not sure if I'd rather have the classic "gangster" type with the fore-grip and drum magazine or the GI style from WW2, but I definitely want one.

2.Vickers Machine Gun

3. Spencer Carbine

4. Colt Army Model 1860

5. M-16 A2 w/ M-203

Most of these weapons have history behind them; the fifth one just has boom behind it.

Mall Ninja - Street Smarts | SWAT Magazine

Mall Ninja - Street Smarts SWAT Magazine

An interesting article on the "Mall Ninja". While I'm sure that such people have always existed, I think the current ease of access of information and gear (via the internet, etc.) has caused a greater crop than before.

Bizarre Dream.

I went to sleep early last night and slept well much of the night. I woke up, however, around 4 AM and, after going to the restroom, began having one of the more disturbing nightmares I can recall having.
I was seated in an amphitheatre that had dinner tables facing a stage and was packed with well dressed people. Waitresses moved along the rows taking orders and making suggestions. My waitress, as I recall, was quite lovely and suggested I have a hamburger. I thought (in dream think) that this was odd, given the upscale aura of the place, but I ordered it on her suggestion. Upon receiving my burger, I noticed that the patty was seared black on the outside, but raw and bloody on the inside. I looked up from my plate to complain to my waitress, who had been standing on the edge of vision the entire time, to discover her entire face was a ruined mess. It essentially looked like a bloody mass of ground beef with eyes. I looked at the other people around me, and they were all gory and burning. I recall someone, possibly the waitress stating that this was Hell and at that point, I woke up.

Easier to pack on than shed...

Well, over the holidays, I managed to regain several of the pounds I had lost in October. This was due not only to traditional holiday eating, but just bad eating in general. Money was tight, as it is so often during the holidays, and I ate fast food instead of being disciplined. I hope to correct this soon.
