I noticed that the spot price of silver dipped below $12.70 per ounce for the first time in many moons. Given the pitiful intrinsic value of the US Dollar, in my opinion silver priced anywhere south of $13.50 is a bargain. Buy on the dips!

This is your chance to get five days of awesome training and an XD pistol and a lot of other gear and useful references for less than the normal cost of the training alone.

Simon in England sent us some evidence that the public fear of guns in the UK Nanny State has gone absolutely ballistic. Simon writes: “A SNP (Scottish National Party) councillor – Jahangir Hanif – almost got the sack for shooting a gun legally (years before he became a councillor) when on holiday in Pakistan. Instead, he got “a two-month suspension”. No, you have not read that wrong. He broke no laws in Pakistan, Scotland, or the UK but there is still a call to sack him.” Here are some links to news stories about this man’s public humiliation for daring to shooting a gun recreationally: Councillor Kalashnikov, Kalashnikov councillor suspended, SNP refuse to kick out ‘Kalashnikov councillor’, Kalashnikov councillor escapes SNP expulsion, What has become of Scotland the Brave? William Wallace must be restless in his grave. OBTW, if any politicians from Scotland would like to engage in some similar “foolish and inappropriate conduct”, they are welcome to come visit the Rawles Ranch. Perhaps we’ll even fire some “evil” tracer ammo or detonate some Tannerite charges with one of my L1A1 (“SLR”) rifles. That should send the UK tabloid press into an absolute paroxysm of hoplophobic frenzy.
