A Brief Statement of Policy

By David E. Petzal and Phil Bourjaily

1) Why I Do Not Pick on Barack Obama

A blogger noted a few rants ago that I had not said one hard word about Barack Obama, despite my constant picking on Hillary Rodham Clinton, and asked if it was due to political correctness. It is not, and to understand the situation we must return to ancient Rome, where the legal system had an unusual system of disposing of people whom it really did not like. They would sew the offender in a bag along with a rooster, an ape, and an adder, and then throw the bag into the Tiber River to let its inhabitants sort things out among themselves.

Mr. Obama, a decent and likable individual of no discernable substance, finds himself sewn in a modern-day bag with the Original Werewolf, her increasingly deranged husband, and the very unusual Reverend Jeremiah Wright. PC has nothing to do with it; I simply do not have the heart to say unkind things about someone with that kind of trouble.

2) Why I Will Not Stop Talking About Expensive Stuff, Even Though It Makes Some People Feel Bad

In the most recent edition of Guns & Ammo, its editor states that readers will see the magazine's future product evaluations devoted to cheaper and cheaper gear. Considering the future economic state of our country, this is sound and logical thinking. Why should G&A waste pages on stuff its readers can't afford?

However, it is not the way things work. Reflect a moment on the photo of Ms.Elisha Cuthbert shown here.

Elisha_cuthbert

Do you have even a prayer of hooking up with a woman who looks like this? Of course not. But is that any reason why I should not run the occasional photo of Ms. Elisha Cuthbert? Take away our dreams and it is a pretty sorry existence.

If you would like to buy some good, inexpensive gear, get a Marlin XL-7 rifle, which is a stupefyingly good rifle for $325 list, or a Cabela's Bell & Carlson Gator, which is $90 and about the best working knife I've laid eyes on.

Now leave me alone.

Just wondering, Dave. You say Obama has "no particular substance." How do you get to be editor of the Harvard Law Review if you have no "substance." After all, it is an elected position. Obama did not get there due to family money or family connections. Do you think you yourself have the horsepower to be editor of the Harvard Law Review?

WA Mtnhunter:I pray that day never comes. However, to quote Thomas Jefferson"The beauty of the Second Ammendment is it will never be needed until they try to take it."I have not forgotten those hard learned lessons from SE Asia, nor have I forgotten that I once swore an oath to "Protect and Defend the Constitution of the United States against all enimies, foreign and domestic ..." Seems to me that this current crop of Demoncrats are about to edge over the line into that domestic enemy of the Constitution catagory?

Miss Elisha Cuthbert is CANADIAN, btw. Aside from "24" she's also appeared in "Old School", a very short role that is still required viewing for her fans, even hotter IMO than her title role in "Girl Next Door". Also worth the DVD rental (or buy) are "The Quiet" with the very beautiful Camilla Belle, and "House of Wax" (it's a silly movie, but that hasn't stopped you before).

Dr. Ralph thanks for the info, however my long used method is much simpler. Haul the colts to the vet and pay him or her to deal with them. Actually most local vets will travel to your place if need be. I figure they all use Bell & Carlson scapels as I think there are Gators sometimes hanging from their belts. Of course I could be mistaken about this observation.

I'm still trying to figure out the inside joke here or if there even is one... I know Bell & Carlson make replacement rifle stocks and aftermarket accessories for guns but hadn't heard of their knives and didn't give it a second thought. Does this have something to do with his statement that he would lie to us on his knife sharpening video? Obviously over my head... maybe someone can explain. Ish let me tell you how to handle this delicate situation. Always tranquilize any equine species and rip them out before he wakes up! This is a tricky business as it entails guesstimating the weight and tolerance of the animal. Unfortunately you can't ask them to start counting backwards fromm 100. With a full grown bovine bull you can sit on his back, pull the tail straight up over the spine with much pressure and somehow this makes it impossible for the bull to kick... as an experiment you might want to try this with your jack. As for technique make a slight incision, well... maybe this part is too graphic.Dustin Hoffman on a full bottle indeed...

Tim,Just a bit of personal opinion on NCIS. NCIS is a Politicly Correct and therefore lousy implementation of fantastic technology. The voice of the techies was politicly suppressed in this implementation. The only proper way to do such queries/searches quickly requires that the search item(the buyer) be somehow unique. The chance was there. The SSA#(Social Security Account #) is the uniqueness all qualified purchasers possess. It is 'optional' on the yellow sheet.To required it would most likely have meant that the legislation would have failed. To not provide it on with your affadavit could mean a seemingly endless delay with your request and/or false returns. This is especially true if you have a proud but common surname i.e. Jones, Smith, White ... I can hear the 'Black Choppers' overhead ... so the repellers shud be on me anytime. To close quickly ... If you're clean and want speed put your SS# the sheet or be prepared to wait! :-D

On Elisha Cuthbert -- would you *want* time with her? She's a very busy actress, hard working, hard to tell what she'd want. I'm often astounded by the simple joy my own wife gives.There's an old joke about guns -- they don't complain if you try out your friend's (which usually won't bother him, either).. but I'm not sure I'd want to marry one. I've been surprisingly happy with what I've ended up with.. and yes, SOME of them I've put some $'s into; many are not that remarkable.But the one thing you said that gives me greatest pause: HOW can you tell which is the adder, the ape, or the evil politician sewn into that bag?Dan

Tim,I don't know how old you are or past experiences in your life and I don't want to bum you out but, are you going thru a divorce, do you have an x (wife, girlfriend) with an ax to grind. In either case that is why you may have been delayed 9 days and the fact is after the waiting period you won't be approved to make this purchase. If the above is true, at the end of the waiting period you will be told the ATBE folks denied you. This is another way most people don't realize our 2nd. amndmnt rights are being stomped on and the anti's have seized upon it. All it takes is one 'innocent voice' saying 'he hurt me, he scares me' and the police/lawyer/judge can quietly get a restraining order on you that you may not know about and gun purchases are stopped.What you should immediatly do is go to the police dept. and ask for a records check, see if they have anything. If they have nothing keep your fingers crossed, you may need a lawyer. I have a bad tale of a man going to Canada for a bear hunt and his ex of 6 mos. filed a complaint on him just to ruin his fun and at the Canadian border he was turned away, at least his guns were. Get this straightened out.

Bryce,I love my Kimber Mdl 8400 classic in 2506. Give me a pretty piece of wood everytime. To hell with plastic stocks.With 61 gr H1000 powder, WW case, Rem mag primer and 100 gr Barnes XXX bullet it gets 3280 fps and puts 5 into 1" at 100 yd. Just make sure you put quality rings and scope on it (suggest Leupold VXIII) and you will be happy. Note that most folks go too cheap on glass and with too much power for the job at hand. More power equals less field of view which makes it harder to find your target fast in the scope (suggest 1.5X-5X or 2.5-8X variable). Remember the old timers did it all with open sights.

He attends a church for over 20 years the pastor of which is an avowed racist (at least that is what we would call it if he were white!) and only ‘rejects’ the man’s diatribe after his political advisors made it clear to him that he must… Yet he talks of reconciling and unifying our country.

Trae B. just today at work we were discussing how long it would take to ride the nine miles from my home in the country to work in town via one of my good Missouri Foxtrotters. One of them is very comfortable at a 7 to 10 mile per hour trot. If I took wire cutters with me on the first trip it would decrease the trip by a few miles but no doubt anger the fence owners unless I reattached the wire. I could hobble the gelding on the lawn of the BBHC and he would spend his day happily munching away plus saying the Museum the cost of having to cut their massive lawn. I suppose I would have to pick up the poop or get one of those bags that hangs under his tail like you sometimes see on city horses. I guess I would save quite a bit of cash by leaving the 2008 Duramax Allison 1 ton 4 x 4 in the driveway.

Now all we need is a photo of the lovely Elisha holding a Holland & Holland or some similar work of art that I can never hope to afford.But to touch on Obama, how he handled his scumbag preacher say a lot about him. And I don't mean dumping him when his spin doctors finally told him how much the twit was dragging him down... I mean refusing to distance himself from Wright in the first place and instead going off on some tangent about race in America. Fine, Wright is black. Who gives a rat's ass? People were pissed at the guy for saying we had 9/11 coming and for claiming the feds invented AIDS. And don't tell me Senator Osama can go to the guy's church for two decades and not know he is a raving lunitic. Finally dumping Wright only shows he is smart enough to cut his losses (unlike Dubya who has spent the past eight years refusing to get rid of incompetants like Rummy and Alberto). He is still part of the "Blame America First" crowd and I am yet to hear him say anything bad about his other terrorist buddy out in California.

I must agree with DP, Obama strikes me as being a well-intentioned shmuck. The Clinton’s and the Clinton-ites have revealed themselves as boorish despots. They don’t even have that neat James Bond-istic villainess and villain aura about them. I quake at the idea of Hillary being Prez and Bill being the De Facto VP, running the country, nor can I imagine this Lot quietly accepting being cut out of the Power.I’m certain all sorts of matters regarding the outdoors and shooting sports will soon change, especially when gas hits that $4/gal mark. I doubt you’ll be seeing the casual yuppie invading the Uplands and Mountains. Transportation costs will make it more difficult for us sportsmen, too.Also, inexpensive hunting items aren’t necessary “cheap” items. I hope folks maintain this perspective.

Dave, well put! May I add a bit of recently developed policy of my own? After a recent expedition to the local Nat'l Forest in search of brook trout and a bit of solitude, I came home more stressed than before because of all of the litter along the stream. For your consideration I offer the following: 1. Make littering a shooting offense. Catch someone droping anything from a cigarette butt to an old refrigerator, just shoot 'em there and save the government's time and money. If this won't fly, then we go to item #2: Get caught littering any given stretch of stream or public road, it becomes your responsiblity to keep that area litter-free for the rest of your natural life and three years after that. Clean-ups will be conducted under the following conditions: A. Temperatures must be either less than 20 degrees above zero or higher than 85 degrees above zero. Cleanups will only be conducted during driving thunderstorms or heavy snowfall. Can you get behind this? Best regards.

I'm still trying to figure out the inside joke here or if there even is one... I know Bell & Carlson make replacement rifle stocks and aftermarket accessories for guns but hadn't heard of their knives and didn't give it a second thought. Does this have something to do with his statement that he would lie to us on his knife sharpening video? Obviously over my head... maybe someone can explain. Ish let me tell you how to handle this delicate situation. Always tranquilize any equine species and rip them out before he wakes up! This is a tricky business as it entails guesstimating the weight and tolerance of the animal. Unfortunately you can't ask them to start counting backwards fromm 100. With a full grown bovine bull you can sit on his back, pull the tail straight up over the spine with much pressure and somehow this makes it impossible for the bull to kick... as an experiment you might want to try this with your jack. As for technique make a slight incision, well... maybe this part is too graphic.Dustin Hoffman on a full bottle indeed...

Tim,Just a bit of personal opinion on NCIS. NCIS is a Politicly Correct and therefore lousy implementation of fantastic technology. The voice of the techies was politicly suppressed in this implementation. The only proper way to do such queries/searches quickly requires that the search item(the buyer) be somehow unique. The chance was there. The SSA#(Social Security Account #) is the uniqueness all qualified purchasers possess. It is 'optional' on the yellow sheet.To required it would most likely have meant that the legislation would have failed. To not provide it on with your affadavit could mean a seemingly endless delay with your request and/or false returns. This is especially true if you have a proud but common surname i.e. Jones, Smith, White ... I can hear the 'Black Choppers' overhead ... so the repellers shud be on me anytime. To close quickly ...

Tim,I don't know how old you are or past experiences in your life and I don't want to bum you out but, are you going thru a divorce, do you have an x (wife, girlfriend) with an ax to grind. In either case that is why you may have been delayed 9 days and the fact is after the waiting period you won't be approved to make this purchase. If the above is true, at the end of the waiting period you will be told the ATBE folks denied you. This is another way most people don't realize our 2nd. amndmnt rights are being stomped on and the anti's have seized upon it. All it takes is one 'innocent voice' saying 'he hurt me, he scares me' and the police/lawyer/judge can quietly get a restraining order on you that you may not know about and gun purchases are stopped.What you should immediatly do is go to the police dept. and ask for a records check, see if they have anything. If they have nothing keep your fingers crossed, you may need a lawyer. I have a bad tale of a man going to Canada for a bear hunt and his ex of 6 mos. filed a complaint on him just to ruin his fun and at the Canadian border he was turned away, at least his guns were.

Just make sure you put quality rings and scope on it (suggest Leupold VXIII) and you will be happy. Note that most folks go too cheap on glass and with too much power for the job at hand. More power equals less field of view which makes it harder to find your target fast in the scope (suggest 1.5X-5X or 2.5-8X variable). Remember the old timers did it all with open sights.

If I took wire cutters with me on the first trip it would decrease the trip by a few miles but no doubt anger the fence owners unless I reattached the wire. I could hobble the gelding on the lawn of the BBHC and he would spend his day happily munching away plus saying the Museum the cost of having to cut their massive lawn. I suppose I would have to pick up the poop or get one of those bags that hangs under his tail like you sometimes see on city horses. I guess I would save quite a bit of cash by leaving the 2008 Duramax Allison 1 ton 4 x 4 in the driveway.

As for Bla errrr Barack Obama you'd better watch your step. You know you're immediately a racist if you call him out. It would make the Zumbo fiasco pale in comparison. On second thought, why not? It's been a while since we've had a public flogging and your hide seems tough enough to make it a good show.

I may not be able to have it or to afford it but I sure can appreciate it. That includes both material things and trophy ladies. Ahhh..To sleep, perchance to dream. Ay there's the rub. (Apologies to Shakespeare)

It's your blog, and you should write what you want. I suspect those who rag on you for writing about expensive guns are just jealous. The videos are great (I'd like to see one of you firing a H&H double in .700 Nitro Express - because I'm thinking of buying one for coyote extermination here in the Midwest). Elisha is a very nice touch, too. I'm particularly fond of Marissa Miller, but that's me.

Now all we need is a photo of the lovely Elisha holding a Holland & Holland or some similar work of art that I can never hope to afford.But to touch on Obama, how he handled his scumbag preacher say a lot about him. And I don't mean dumping him when his spin doctors finally told him how much the twit was dragging him down... I mean refusing to distance himself from Wright in the first place and instead going off on some tangent about race in America. Fine, Wright is black. Who gives a rat's ass? People were pissed at the guy for saying we had 9/11 coming and for claiming the feds invented AIDS. And don't tell me Senator Osama can go to the guy's church for two decades and not know he is a raving lunitic. Finally dumping Wright only shows he is smart enough to cut his losses (unlike Dubya who has spent the past eight years refusing to get rid of incompetants like Rummy and Alberto). He is still part of the "Blame America First" crowd and I am yet to hear him say anything bad about his other terrorist buddy out in California.

I must agree with DP, Obama strikes me as being a well-intentioned shmuck. The Clinton’s and the Clinton-ites have revealed themselves as boorish despots. They don’t even have that neat James Bond-istic villainess and villain aura about them. I quake at the idea of Hillary being Prez and Bill being the De Facto VP, running the country, nor can I imagine this Lot quietly accepting being cut out of the Power.I’m certain all sorts of matters regarding the outdoors and shooting sports will soon change, especially when gas hits that $4/gal mark. I doubt you’ll be seeing the casual yuppie invading the Uplands and Mountains. Transportation costs will make it more difficult for us sportsmen, too.Also, inexpensive hunting items aren’t necessary “cheap” items. I hope folks maintain this perspective.

Dave, well put! May I add a bit of recently developed policy of my own? After a recent expedition to the local Nat'l Forest in search of brook trout and a bit of solitude, I came home more stressed than before because of all of the litter along the stream. For your consideration I offer the following: 1. Make littering a shooting offense. Catch someone droping anything from a cigarette butt to an old refrigerator, just shoot 'em there and save the government's time and money. If this won't fly, then we go to item #2: Get caught littering any given stretch of stream or public road, it becomes your responsiblity to keep that area litter-free for the rest of your natural life and three years after that. Clean-ups will be conducted under the following conditions: A. Temperatures must be either less than 20 degrees above zero or higher than 85 degrees above zero. Cleanups will only be conducted during driving thunderstorms or heavy snowfall. Can you get behind this? Best regards.

Im no fan of Clinton and Im not a Republican - but Im a bit tired of people giving Obama a pass despite long standing anti-gun position.If a politician takes your gun with a kind word and understanding - he still took your gun.

Del,I believe your wrong. The story I read yesterday by Terry Wieland said the makers of high dollar sxs rifles are in full production. And a waiting line to boot.Also your right about the 120grand. You should have picked up on that one for 30.

Dave,Well said and the young miss is a fox.Jim,Last year they had a cased H&H Royal grade in the KC Cabelas gun room for around 30K. That beats the hell out of 120k plus 18.5% VAT for a new one in the London store last June when I was there visiting my son. I suspect they don't sell like hot cakes.

I like to daydream which is exactly why I look at pictures of the H&H Royal and Miss Cuthbert.

Thanks for making me laugh on an otherwise cruddy Friday morning. The photo of Ms. Cuthbert was also a welcome contrast to today's weather in NY. Please keep your reviews (and nicely illustrated analogies) coming.
