    Got an American Community Survey

    I got one, they say there are "penalties" if I don't answer their intrusive questions or answer incorrectly. What questions can they legally ask and what questions can I legally ignore?

    Article on Jesus Gonzales in Milwaukee Magazine. July issue

    I'm sitting in the Urgi-med office waiting room with my son, pick up a magazine because I notice it has an article about beer. Thumbing through the magazine I come across a picture of Jesus Gonzales and the story of his imprisonment. Don't know if anyone else read it or not, I didn't know it...

    OK, whats the scoop on the UN gun treaty?

    I hear some say it wont affect us, I hear other say the Senate will never authorize it and some say we are doomed. Is there a concise easy to understand summary of what this treaty is all about?

    Mother in law and CCL

    I was talking to my mother-in-law yesterday and found out she is going to get a CCL. I was pleasantly surprised to hear that. My wife was very surprised. She said "Mother, what to you need a gun for?" She saw the look of disapproval on my face and added a "giggle". As I said before my wife...

    Do you still "pat"?

    I have been open carrying for some time now and still find myself occasionally patting my sidearm to make sure its still there and secure. I try to do it nonchalantly as possible but still feel every eye is on my sidearm as I am "reaching" for it.

    Firearms and hot tempers.

    The thread about road rage got me thinking. When Wisconsin got concealed carry I had some concerns about hot tempered people that barring any legal disqualifications could now carry a gun. When I first started open carrying I was nervous about how I might react in any given situation. I...

    Ammo storage and moisture

    Since moisture is bad for gun power, is it a good idea to store your ammo with rice? I read that if you drop your cell phone in water that putting it in a bowl of uncooked rice will draw the moisture out. If I put some rice in the bottom of my ammo can (army surplus) will that prevent powder...

    I let my NRA membership expire.

    I decided not to renew my NRA membership this time around. I understand the NRA is still the largest and most well funded pro-gun (not pro-2A necessarily) organization, but I just don't feel they are working for what I believe is important in Wisconsin. Besides, I don't need another key chain...

    Cheaper than Dirt ad on radio

    Heard an add for Cheaper than Dirt on AM620 this morning. When the ad started I almost thought it was an ANTI ad by the somber music in the background and the opening topic line was something like "owning a gun is a serious decision..." I cant remember hearing any firearms ads in Wisconsin...
