Do You Have An “Arsenal?”

Mayor says housekeeper “likely prevented a tragedy” by reporting two-gun “arsenal” in Streeterville hotel room

Chicago’s mayor and police superintendent used dramatic language Tuesday after a Streeterville hotel housekeeper allegedly found a rifle sitting on a hotel room window sill over the weekend.

But neither Lori Lightfoot nor David Brown explained why they believed the city had “adverted disaster” and “nefarious” plans.

Keegan Casteel, a 32-year-old visitor from suburban Des Moines, Iowa, was charged Tuesday with two counts of unlawful use of a weapon. He must pay a $1,000 deposit to get out of jail.

Lightfoot claimed Casteel came to Chicago “with an arsenal, an AR-15…Thank God for that hotel worker who saw something and said something, and I believe averted disaster.”

Groot’s an idiot, she saw a black, scary gun and the only thing it could be is an “AR-15.”

In fact, the rifle police recovered was a .308 caliber, not an AR-15, according to Burkhardt.

Whoops !!!

“This wasn’t a firearm for personal protection. What he had was weapons of war,” Lightfoot continued, saying the seized items represented “something more nefarious.” She offered no evidence that Casteel harbored any evil intentions to support her belief.

Brown, appearing at an earlier press conference, said the housekeeper who allegedly discovered the rifle “likely prevented a tragedy from happening.” But he offered nothing to support the claim.

Like I said before, Groot’s an idiot and wouldn’t know a “weapon of war” if it slapped her upside her head.

 

How many of you have an “Arsenal” like this??

Greatest Gas Station Ever !!!!

Once a Roadside Attraction, This WW2 Bomber May Get a Third Life

In February 1947, gas station owner Art Lacey announced that he planned to buy a mothballed bomber to attract—and shade—customers. A friend bet him five bucks that it would never happen. “If you told my dad he couldn’t do something,” his daughter Punky Scott says, “then he was going to do it.” The story of how he did it has been Lacey family lore for 70 years.

Lacey borrowed $15,000 and hightailed it to the airport that very night. At Altus Army Airfield, Oklahoma, he bought a well-used B-17 for $13,750. Although Lacey was an experienced pilot, he had never flown anything with more than one engine. But after a few taxi runs, he felt confident enough to take a test hop.

Everything went fine until it came time to land. The landing gear refused to extend, so Lacey bellied in and slid into a second B-17. Fortunately, the War Assets Administration officer took pity on him, and declared it “the worst case of wind damage I’ve ever seen.” Then he sold Lacey another B-17 for a mere $1,500.

Give the story a read !!!

A Quick Trip To The Range………..

I was able to make a quick trip to the range.

I’d rather be shooting outdoors, but don’t have the time to run out there.

 

I shot 60 rounds with each 22, 30 at 5 yards, 30 at 7 yards.

S&W Compact on the left, Beretta on the right.  4 inch circles.

18 rounds of 380

The right side has nine holes, can you find them all??

The left side was at 5 yards and I was bringing the gun up from my waist and point shooting.
