Post Katrina Education

Prof. Mike Adams has a column today dealing with that awkward transitional stage between sheep and sheepdog. In "Getting into the World of Firearms", he leads the novice on a path to confident self-protection and a heck of a great new hobby. The article mostly deals with specific guns that a newbie should consider and in a sequence that will ease the user into the sports of plinking and hunting. Of course, he suggests buying a .22 for starters. Some of us were a little more adventurous and thought the best beginner gun was this:

The S&W 686PP .357 Magnum was my first handgun and still one of my favorites. There's something very satisfying about pulling the trigger and seeing the flash and feeling
and rocking back on your heels. Schweeeet!

In Other News: Contrast and Compare

Two 'chick' stories today that couldn't be more diametrically opposed. First, from AP comes "Iraq's First Female Suicide Bomber Strikes".
A woman strapped with explosives and disguised as a man blew herself up outside an Iraqi army recruiting center in a northern town Wednesday, killing at least six people and wounding 30 in the first known attack by a female suicide bomber in the country's bloody insurgency.
Will the feminist nags see this as a victory for equal rights?

Then from Defend America we get a completely different kind of story about women. "First All-female Crew Flies Combat Mission" is about a group of gals who are much better role models than Ms. Blownapart.

I don't think these ladies are afraid of much of anything. Reading the article, it is apparent that none of these flyers think the occasion was a big deal, but they are proud to be part of any crew that does it's job well. No feminazis here, just professionals.
