Are You Frickin' Kidding Me?!?

Apparently part of the POS Stimulus Bill went to funding a certain BATFE program that directly channeled weapons to straw buyers and Mexican drug gangs.

For an additional amount for ‘State and Local Law Enforcement Assistance’, $40,000,000, for competitive grants to provide assistance and equipment to local law enforcement along the Southern border and in High-Intensity Drug Trafficking Areas to combat criminal narcotics activity stemming from the Southern border, of which $10,000,000 shall be transferred to ‘Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, Salaries and Expenses’ for the ATF Project Gunrunner.

And you're saying that no one in the Administration knew about it?!?

New Toy on Order

I have a deposit down on a Ruger SR1911 and I can't wait for it to come in. A US made stainless 1911 for under $700? Whoever heard of such a thing? I haven't had a pistol in about 14 years and I've sorely missed having one. The last one was the perfect carry piece; Smith & Wesson 469 9mm...12+1, bobbed hammer, lo-pro sights and Pachmeyer grips that made it feel like it was part of my hand. Oh, and it was made from METAL!! I still can't get my head around the plastic pistols; they just don't feel right.
I'll post pictures when I get it.
