Liberal Wimps Weap at This

Well at least some of those in
Fla, who may have had some difficulty in the past finding there way around a voting booth, know how to use a weapon when the time arrives.

Seed this article

For those faint of heart liberals who's stomach turns when the thought of guns arise...lets just say - keep praying that the bad guys in your neighborhood never find you - your just a moment away from victim-hood...unlike our Fla friends who take responsibility for their own safety.

Enfield No. 4 MK I

This famous British rifle was one of the best of WWII. This variant was produced in Canada - it was and still is a very sturdy, reliable and accurate gun. Per Wiki -

By the late 1930s the need for new rifles grew, and the Rifle, No. 4 Mk I was first issued in 1939 but not officially adopted until 1941.[30] The No. 4 action was similar to the Mk VI,[31] but lighter, stronger, and most importantly, easier to mass produce.[31] Unlike the SMLE, the No 4 Lee-Enfield barrel protruded from the end of the forestock. The No. 4 rifle was considerably heavier than the No. 1 Mk. III, largely due to its heavier barrel,[31] and a new bayonet was designed to go with the rifle: a spike bayonet,[31] which was essentially a steel rod with a sharp point, and was nicknamed "pigsticker" by soldiers. Towards the end of the Second World War, a bladed bayonet was developed, originally intended for use with the Sten gun—but sharing the same mount as the No. 4's spike bayonet—and subsequently the No. 7 and No. 9 blade bayonets were issued for use with the No. 4 rifle as well.[32]Using my own reloads in .303 British, results are pretty good at 100yds, from a rest - my gun has the issue aperture sights - that really help - and are finitely adjustable for elevation only.

I generally can keep 10 shots in the black 7 inch circle at 100 yds...and focusing on that front sight seems to be getting harder.

My reloads use 180 grain round nose softpoints, 40 grains of IMR 4064 - not much kick since the gun is so solid....and accuracy is consistently good. 80% of my shots are in the 9 and 10 ring.

Iowa - GOP Selection Process Begins

As a gun owner, I want the next President to never waiver on my gun rights. But that does not mean I am willing to support someone who has no chance of defeating Obama. To do so would simply be a wasted effort.

So, the question for all of us concerned gun owners should be - who can be elected, who I can support as someone who will stand up for my gun rights....but even more importantly, can in an reverse the downward slide of this country...and that slide is across the board - the economy, our culture, our morals, our health etc.

Sorry to say that in a country so full of talent, there are so few people willing and able to rise to the occasion and take on Obama - who is aside from his novelty of being the first minority President - the worst President we have ever seen, at least in my life time.

So, my view - and it is just that, my personal view - is that only Romney can be elected - at this point - R. Santorum - well he shows promise but he is just not viewed as having enough gravitas yet - but I would be happy with him...if he could get the nomination. That will not happen, since the general public wants someone right of center,....but not way right of center. The key to this election is the moderates and disenchanted Democrats. Especially those of us (53 percent) who actually pay taxes.

So...Gun owners, Romney unless, and until Romney shows a lack of support for our gun rights. Don't be influenced by his past stance on assault weapons...See him as a pragmatic supporter....who will not reverse our recent gains....but more importantly as the best alternative to ensure we get rid of the current curse on America - which is clearly what the current President is.
