Why I Love .22s

For a total cost of $87.00 ((including $1.72 for Midway’s NRA Round-Up contribution and $14.81 for shipping)), I purchased 1,500 rounds of CCI Blazer .22LR ammo. Here they are:

This purchase is due to Carl’s contribution to the New Shooter Ammo Fund, and has been marked and set aside for that specific purpose.
The same amount of .223 ammo ((Prvi Partizan M193)) would cost a bit more than seven times as much, and would be considerably bulkier and heavier. Although prices have risen, .22 is still cheap, small, compact, and lightweight.
It’s also a heck of a lot of fun.

Spam Counts & Technical Difficulties

This blog is on track to hit 10,000 spam comments stopped since it’s inception in July 2008.
The total number of spams that have passed the battery of filters? Zero. When will they learn to stop trying?
Total number of CAPTCHA’s and other things that annoy legitimate commenters? About three, over a year ago, but were quickly retracted due to being poorly received.
I’d also like to apologize for some technical difficulties that resulted in the website being unreadable (though the feeds evidently kept working) for at least a few days. It’s been corrected.
