Cool Rims

The lowly .22LR is the most common and popular of the rimfire category… and the stuff that comes out for it is pretty amazing.  I find myself in modes where it’s almost like I consider a .22LR to be a “Kid’s Gun” or something.  Honestly, I think since I got a .17HMR, I’ve only fired about a dozen rounds of .22LR.

But .22’s are not just for kids anywhere, not by a long shot.   .22’s are getting serious.  We’ve seen the .22 Colts and M&P 15-22, and of course the plethora of modification options for the Ruger 10/22…  But what you are about to see here… These are just staggeringly cool on a whole new level.

North Dakota is booming

I’m happy that North Dakota is having a good boom time with the oil rush. Their economy is roaring.

And ours here is withering.  Because 3,000 jobs from here went directly there.  Jobs shut down here and opened there directly because of policy from the Obama Administration.  Because of the actions of Ken “The Loathsome Cowboy” Salazar specifically.  A lot of Utah residents are working N.D. right now… I’ve talked to several guys just today that are working over there.  Companies fly them back and forth.  Making great money.  Pumping their economy up like an balloon.

Utah Schools is looking at deep cuts.  All the County Governments are looking at deep cuts.  Utah is tightening its belt, big time.    But North Dakota is booming.   “Hey, Ken!  Where are those Oil Leases people PAID FOR?  Where’s the Money, Ken?”  If you didn’t want people drilling there – then don’t put those areas up for lease!  Just a thought.  Friggen thief.

I’m not bitter against N.D.   Not at all… good for them… but the way this shook out is outrageous.
