Remember, Remember the 19th of November

I shoot guns, and I do it every chance I get (though life in El Pueblo de Los Angeles offers precious little opportunity to shoot legally). I like handguns, since they present more of a challenge than do rifles. Most places where one can shoot in the urban area are indoor ranges that allow only handguns, and a few light rifles, such as .22's, which fits into my preferences quite well.

Monday, the 19th of November is National Ammo Day, as proclaimed and promoted by Nation of Volunteers, Inc, which is, as I understand it, a pro-2nd Amendment special interest group promoting traditional American values--particularly as regards to the Bill of Rights and the US Constitution.

National Ammos Day is a day to empty the ammunition from the shelves of your local gun store, sporting goods, or hardware store and put that ammunition in the hands of law-abiding citizens. Make your support of the Second Amendment known--by voting with your dollars!

Seems like a worthwhile idea, and it happens that I need to fill my inventory of ammo for my next trip to the range.

Fits together kind of nicely.

People shouldn't be afraid of their governments. Governments should be afraid of their people.

Warm regards,

Col. Hogan

Is that your gun CH, damn that's a work of art. Hope you never have to use it on any scumbags. :)

Might get it messed and that would be a shame.

Ok, I stand corrected, and I've made the corrections. Apologies, apologies!!

Hello Col. Hogan,

Nice guns.

Could you shoot me an email? I have a question for you.


Col. Hogan said...


I don't have your email address and I can't get into your blog. Write me at

And thanks for the complement on the handgun. It's not mine, but I'd give every gun I own for it.

Col., enjoy your constitutional rights. You guys are the last bastion on the planet who still have them.
Nice gun.

Auroea, I seriously hope y'all can find a way to get back your right to self defense, as well. At various times in my life, I've considered moving there, but the gun issue was always the stopper.
