David, the "mover and shaker" behind the Gun Show on the Web website has decided to jump head first into the blog world, and he's off to a good start.

Well, the release of the rules and target for the latest handgun e-Postal match, "jack-N-Jill" have been well received. There's lots of challenge, some strategy required, and it's a good excuse to drag your better half out to the range for a little brass emptying!

The Four Rules of Firearm Safety
As some of you know, the business I'm in gets crazy a couple of times a year, and requires just about all of my time, day and night, for ten days to two weeks, which is why my blogging has been a little lighter than usual. I'm happy to say that the craziness is just about over for another six months, or thereabouts.

There is a move afoot by the anti-hunting people to BAN HUNTING altogether on WHIDBEY ISLAND !
Rivrdog has a new and timely post up at his preparedness blog, Paratus, on how to store fuel, including gasoline and diesel.
The patient was overweight, so the doctor put him on a diet. He said; "I want you to eat regularly for two days, then skip a day, and repeat this procedure for two weeks."
I don't claim to be much of an expert on winning, but I know a lot about losing. Sometimes I amaze myself with my ability to find new ways to beat myself.
Sunday will be a light posting day, at least until Sunday evening, as KeeWee and I are off to another CWSA pin shoot in Coupeville, Washington. I've got everything all cleaned and oiled, ready to go.

The Carnival of Cordite is up, with lots of good gun related stuff, including lots on the New Orleans situation.
Well, I'm working away on the rules for the next e-Postal handgun match, and I thought I'd let you all know a couple of the advance details, so you can start planning for it.
"You may be interested to know that global warming, earthquakes, hurricanes, and other natural disasters are a direct effect of the shrinking numbers of Pirates since the 1800s.Now that we've resolved that, can we get on to something else........
For your interest, I have included a graph of the approximate number of pirates versus the average global temperature over the last 200 years. As you can see, there is a statistically significant inverse relationship between pirates and global temperature."
KeeWee of KeeWee's Corner got this in an email, and sent it on to me:
A couple go for a meal at a Chinese restaurant and order the "Chicken Surprise".
The waiter brings the meal, served in a lidded cast iron pot.
Just as the wife is about to serve herself, the lid of the pot rises slightly and she briefly sees two beady little eyes looking around before the lid slams back down.
"Good grief, did you see that?" she asks her husband. He hasn't, so she asks him to look in the pot. He reaches for it and again the lid rises, and he sees two little eyes looking around before it slams down.
Rather perturbed, he calls the waiter over, explains what is happening, and demands an explanation.
"Please sir," says the waiter, "what did you order?"
The husband replies, "Chicken Surprise."
"Ah... I'm sorry," says the waiter, "I brought you Peeking Duck"
