New Feature: Weekly Guns & Hunting Thread

I was going to do this on the weekend, but it looks like there's popular demand, so what the heck.

Here's the overall plan for what this post is going to cover. First, if there's firearms/hunting related news, it'll get featured. Big events like Fast & Furious developments warrant their own posts, obviously, but we'll reference them in the weekly posts as well. This will cross into the political at times, for obvious reasons, but it will always be topical.

Second, I got the idea to make this a regular feature a couple of weeks ago when we were discussing what gun was in the picture on Dave's Veteran's Day post. The prize went to 'andycanuck', who identified it as a 1916 French 37mm gun. I like gun trivia like this, and I know lots of the Moron Horde does as well, so I thought we'd do a featured gun of the week and either do a poll for a visual identification trivia contest or just do a profile of a historical piece.

As this is the inaugural thread, throw out other ideas in the comments. Now, on with the show.

Preserving the Second Amendment

Are you a member of the National Rifle Association, Gun Owners of America or other second amendment-related organization? If not, you should consider it, given that a certain SCOAMF now has "more flexibility" and has already claimed to be running an under the radar campaign for gun control.

Also, there are some very good state second amendment organizations*. I belong to what is arguably the best of them, the Massachusetts Gun Owners Action League. They've been fighting the good fight behind enemy lines.

Marksmanship Award

Cam Edwards, who hosts Cam and Company on NRA News web/satellite radio, is a good Twitter follow, and he regularly links heartwarming stories like this:

Gun of the Week

This one's not unique by any stretch of the imagination, but given the upcoming holiday season and the extreme level of joy felt by any kid who's gotten a the only present that comes in a long, skinny box shaped like that, I present the Ruger 10/22:

With about 6 million of these in circulation and every accessory imaginable available, it's hard to go wrong with one of these. I have 2.
