Little Sammy Miculek…
Liking that perspective shot in the last panel. Not bad in the next to last panel either.
My son started at 4 with a Red Ryder BB gun, now at the age of 26 he ARs, FALs, AKs and a couple long distance precision shooters.
Always start them early.
You might try an AUG – smaller and easier to carry.
You forgot the half dozen Delegates and Resident Commissioners from DC, PR, Guam, USVI. American Samoa and the Northern Marianas.
Yeah, but then there is that army of unelected, smirking bureaucrats that ACTUALLY run things. THAT’S the herd that needs to be thinned!
They can get to them later after they take care of the dc libturds.
Apparently, there are more things inherited through genetics than I thought. Ambidextrous to boot.

Considering Sam’s look in the fourth panel… Do Nanos throw brass very far?
I was just thinking that. I admire Sam, but a shooting range should be a no-cleavage zone for a very good reason. Don’t want any brass dances.
Why not? Some of the best strip shows I’ve seen were on ranges
Do they even manufacture enough ammo to take out all the unelected bureaucrats, lobbyists, and GS-rated scum who really run the show? That “535” number just peels the icing off the cake and reveals the maggot-ridden rotten meat layer cake underneath!
Cut off the head and the snake dies. We only need the cabinet secretaries and a few of the senior bureaucrats immediately under them.
Not. Cut the head off a snake and the head can still bite you and kill you. Just FYI.
I’d donate a couple boxes of rounds to help.
So, what you have here is either a Jo enhanced replica, or a Ballistics Savant.
That young Samuel is a real colt … a chip off of the shoulders of Sam and Zed.
This message is sometimes said to have been printed on a Colt revolver used in the old West:
(The following lines were printed on a revolver—ed.)
“Be not afraid of any man;
No matter what his size;
When danger threatens, call on me—
And I will equalize!”
25 October 1931, Charleston (WV) Gazette, “The Backslider” by Lucian Carey, Magazine Section, pg. 3, col. 6:
I’ll be on a podcast 10am est this morning with https://westernrifleshooters.us/, a great site many of you are familiar with.
That’s great news! I’m sure he’ll link it over at Gab as well.
I don’t see a link for the podcast on their site.
It will go up later, the week of the 29th
Like father, like son.
Nope, 537. Maybe 540.
I like Samuel. All do and no talk.
Another George S. Patton Jr.
In Olympic pistol competition in 1924, Patton missed taking the gold medal in rapid fire because one of his bullets passed exactly through the hole created by a previous shot in the same string.
This is why benchrest went to moving backers – when you start shooting group sizes so small(record at a 100 yards is .009!) You need some way to verify that all five shots were fired and hit the target.
Got into a heated pissing contest on the pistol range with a signals Capt. acting as RSO at the National Matches when he claimed that I had four rounds in one ragged hole, five almost touching said hole and…a complete miss.
You could easily see the ‘missing’ round where it had just cut the edge of the hole, provided you used a magnifier which I had in my hand and he refused to use.
We’d had a lot of trouble with some very questionable decisions by the range workers that year, including mismarking scores, and another one I experienced was of the butts worker assigned to my target marking the first shot a miss, at 300yds prone !! the easiest match ther was, then putting the marker for each subsequent shot in the hole left by the previous one. Luckily I was squadded for that relay with a multiple ‘Queen’s Medal for Champion Shot’ winner(who I later on, after retiring from the military, ended up working with for many years) who had a few choice words for the RSO and it ended up my getting a reshoot and the butts worker assigned to kitchen duty for the rest of the match.
I almost ended up on charge after I told the pistol RSO in no uncertain terms what I thought of his lack of impartiality, eyesight,moral fibre and common sense.
Probably would have too if my father’s cousin hadn’t been the Base Commandant at the time 😉
I could read and reread this one all day but I got a house to paint (exterior).
Sorry I’ll miss podcast.
It’ll be up at Wrsa the week of the 29th
Notice that Zed added the word “metal” in the sixth panel as a necessary adjective so that the reader would not confuse the glowing red-hot silhouette standing next to him with the target.
As has been mentioned above the number 535 + 2 are just front-end meat puppets. Starting 537 dirt naps will be gratifying but will not rectify the myriad of issues coming out of WDC. The Obama Crime family (Zero, Holder, Rice, ValJar, etc) should be considered as the next to be visited.
Unfortunately starting down such a road is inherently unhealthy for this country. Good people, people who have the talent and drive to operate a government that is good for the country will avoid government service knowing that any mistake could end up with them getting a 9mm headache. That is why we have scum like the Obamas using this knowledge against us.
I understand that H. Beam Piper’s “Lone Star Planet” (aka “A Planet for Texans”) has a working model for this. Haven’t yet read it, but probably should soon, especially since it’s dowloadable from Gutenberg now.
I notice Zed uses Samuel’s proper name whereas Sam calls him Sammy. Maybe I’m old fashioned but I approve of Zed’s choice to do this.
Yes, and for good reason when I named him 2 or 10 years ago…
While i used the diminutive above after Sam did, he is named for the most solid conservative rock on the Court, with the proper name Samuel…
I suspect the armor wouldn’t be going “ding, ding, ding,” in this case, but more like “squorsh, squorsh, squorsh!”
“Crossed the T” with 8 mags of 9mm and no flyers. Impressive.
I understand that this is in DoubleD land, but there are individuals in the real world who are gifted (or cursed according to Liam Devlin a character in multiple Jack Higgins novels) to be able to do this. I have witnessed individuals who can put multiple rounds in the same hole, sign their name on the target in cursive, perforate the bullseye from the target, or win a game of 301 on a dartboard target with six shots (60, 60, 60, 51, 20, and a bullseye ). On open air ranges.
As Punta Gorda notes they are Ballistics Savants who can visually calculate and “see” the path the bullet will take, accounting for the weapon, bullet weight, ballistic coefficient, muzzle velocity, air temperature, relative humidity, barometric pressure, target movement, wind, elevation, slope, and Coriolis Force. Yes, there are ballistic calculators that do this, but these individuals can account for changing conditions on the fly.
They also have an innate “feel” for most weapons and optics, are harsh and accurate in their assessments of each individual device, and are often master armorers who can improve the performance of most devices, if you permit them to do so.
In addition most have 20/20 vision or better, and most importantly, no astigmatism. As they age, they prefer to correct for their decrease in visual acuity in their optics rather than in corrective lenses, so as to eliminate introducing another variable into the equation.
If you are at a long range shooting event and one of the participants lays his rounds out on a flat rock in the hot sun for precise periods of time prior to shooting them, don’t bet against him. (Heating the rounds provides a slight increase in muzzle velocity, flattening and extending the trajectory. But, you have to be able to calculate and account for it.)
Saw a cute (German?) video ad for gun gear: old man puts a target downrange, takes careful aim, puts one in the upper right edge. RSO watches. Takes careful aim again, puts one in the lower right edge. RSO grimaces. Takes careful aim again, puts one dead in the X. RSO sits up. Old man wheels in the target, takes it down, and clips it in a ring binder by the first two holes.
Seen that one too. It’s precious.
Got to load up some more mags…
Also found at WRS site. I know good old boys back up in The Frozen Tundra that fit this picture. https://anodtothegods.com/?p=35950
Everywhere I’ve been in the old USA, there are rednecks.
“Rednecks…not just in the South anymore!”
“Come Git Some!”
When I was working in Anchorage my daughter made the observation they had more rednecks there than any place we’d lived. That includes Texas, south Louisiana, North Carolina and Florida.
She was not wrong.
God Bless us all. All ‘rednecks’ that is.
Browncoat57, the point at which most Northern and most Southern meet, I guess (well, continental North and South anyway, ie, not including state 50)?
Happy to say that the Redneck Country Club (aka the Oakwood Lanes bowling alley in Warren County NJ) is doing great business. T-shirt dress code is open to “FJB”, anything anti-Hillary, any pro-2A slogan, American flags, Harley shirts, muscle car shirts, “country strong”, the ubiquitous “I hate 10 pins” etc. Not a single can or glass of Bud Lite has been sold in weeks. Not one.
Yes sir, rednecks ARE everywhere. It’s an outlook, not always a lifestyle.
Who gets to reload?
Speaking of ammo …
Lots more than that off the cost down by Halifax, millions of .303 rounds alone. ‘Burial at sea’ was common for surplus or tx ordnance all along the coasts after WW’s 1 and 2 and up until fairly recently, including chemical weapons still waiting to corrode.
Things get dumped in the oddest places, we had an EOD call once for artillery shells used as ballast in an old ship that had run aground. Most of them were solid shot, probably anti-armour, but a few weren’t…made for a good week’s work clearing it all out.
I was a member on an EOD page on facebook for awhile, until I stopped using it completely. One guy was working a harbour dredging site in the far east, Indonesia I think, or thereabouts. Live shells were common finds in the dredge, common enough to pay to have EOD on site at all times.
Mom had two comments on gun control: “Gun control is shooting only your intended target”, and “Gun control is putting each round through the same hole in the target.”
You can’t beat a Mother’s Wisdom.
