Now, that title may be a shade misleading.
At present my meager collection is as follows:
- Sig P220 (9mmp)
- Beretta 92F (9mmp)
- S&W Mdl 14 (.38spcl)
- Remington 870 (tacti-cool config)
- Mossberg 500 (uber-tacti-cool config)
- Norinco M14S / M305 / M1A (7.62x51mm)
- VZ-58 (7.62x39mm)
- Olympic Arms (Mutt) 20″ AR15 (5.56x45mm)
- Springfield M1 Garand (1941) (.30-06)
- Longbranch SMLE No.4 Mk I (1944) (.303 British)
It’s a motley assortment of firearms, and it occurs to me that the majority stand unused in the gun cabinet, which is at capacity.
I’d like to add a Remington 700 in .308, and a Sig P226. This means, however, that a few of the existing ones have to go.
…but which ones?
Uh, did I miss a memo?
When did “bring your own reusable bags” turn into “bag your own sh*t!“.
The other day I watched the cashier ring up my $100 in groceries, then place 6 plastic bags on top of the assortment of groceries she had just scanned (but not bagged) and then stare at me expectantly after I had finished paying.
I stared right back. This continued for about two minutes before she expelled a long suffering sigh and began bagging my groceries.
Am I the only one noticing this?
Human Rights Tribunal comes to the rescue once again.
That October 2009 decision ordered Telfer to pay $36,000 to a woman who had been her employee for six weeks. Lawyers wanted the sheriff to seize and sell Telfer’s home to collect the money.
The woman who lodged the complaint, Seema Saadi, told the tribunal she felt pressured to wear skirts and heels instead of her hijab. Saadi also said Telfer complained about the smell of food that she warmed in the microwave.
Oppression is truly rampant in this country.
Um, yeah. It snowed.
Need I remind everyone that this is Canada, in Winter no less, and that this is supposed to be our métier, hearty Cannucks one and all?
(Although in all honestly, I am indebted to a former colleague and current neighbor who wandered a half block over with his snowblower to clear the driveway back a bit)
