Beretta® PX4 Storm 9mm Full Size High Capacity Pistol

Built around Beretta’s latest PX4 modular technology, the Beretta PX4 Storm 9mm Full Size High Capacity Pistol delivers large frame firepower that can be customized for different shooters. Utilizing Beretta’s strongest pistol action, the PX4 Storm’s unique rotating barrel and locking system reduces felt recoil and muzzle rise by releasing recoil energy radially. The gun’s chrome-lined barrel resists corrosion and requires less maintenance. Beretta keeps the PX4 Storm light with a corrosion resistant, fiberglass-reinforced polymer frame that includes an integral Picatinny rail for rapid attachment of tactical lights and laser aiming devices. Ambidextrous manual safety lever is positioned on both sides of the slide for easy access by all shooters. Bruniton™ non-reflective black coating provides superior corrosion and wear resistant finish. White 3-dot sights provide quick acquisition of the target. Weight: 27.7 oz. Capacity: 17+1 and 20+1 round magazines

We’re a big fan of compact and sub-compact larger capacity (.40 S&W, .357SIG, .45ACP) pistols for every day concealed carry.  But for the Zombie fighting, insurrection, defending a home invasion against multiple targets or any prolonged firefight, we favor the large capacity 9mm pistol. See two of my favorite TV Shows Strike Back and The Walking Dead for details.

Mrs. Wolf has a Glock 19 for these situations and suprisingly, the old gray Wolf has chosen the PX4 storm as my firefight sidearm of choice.  This is a good gun for anyone from the novice shooter to the professional. In SA mode trigger is crisp and light. The trigger action is smooth with very light recoil. This pistiol is the upgrade for the 92FS, which is carried by most members of the U.S. Military.

From The Tank Guy: Advantages Ease of use, Performs well, Quality, low recoil ★★★★★

PX4 Storm. 9mm. This is an excellent handgun. It takes 17 round or 20 round magazine plus one in the chamber. It has proved accurate and in single action is capable of 1-2” groups when double tapping. The DA trigger pull requires a break-in to smooth it. The SA action is excellent. Trigger break is good in both modes and kick is minimum. Magazine release is smooth and clean. The gun with the decocker off can be safely carried in a good holster which covers the trigger. The gun has three safeties - the decocker if on disconnects the trigger, with the decocker off the firing pin is blocked/not aligned the gun will not fire, and the third safety is the gun will not fire unless the DA trigger is pulled. The DA trigger pull is sufficent to make the gun as safe as any DA only pistol. Night sights are adequate. Front and Rear sights are both adjustable in windage or removable. Has a built-in Picitinny rail in front of the trigger guard. Recommended for a full size 9mm semi-automatic pistol. # rounds fired ~2000

It’s a fun gun to shoot at the range in multi-target and in rapid fire situations.  You can find the full size Px4 for around $500 in all the usual places. Here’s Hickok45’s YouTube review:

The Obama "Fair Share" Propaganda Machine is Working

Barack Hussein Obama is eager to collect scalps from the class war he appears to have won in the election.

Americans, Obama said in his post-election news conference earlier this month, “want to make sure that middle-class folks aren’t bearing the entire burden and sacrifice when it comes to some of these big challenges. They expect that folks at the top are doing their fair share as well.” House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., echoed this point in a fundraising pitch sent out on Monday: “Voters sent a clear message to Republicans in the election: we must stand up for the middle class and ensure the wealthy pay their fair share.”

Although Obama and his fellow Democrats repeatedly call on wealthier Americans to pay their “fair share,” they never specify what percentage of the nation’s tax burden the wealthy would have to bear. The Washington Examiner recently published these bipartisan Congressional figures.  As matters stand, the top 1 percent of American households paid 39 percent of income taxes in 2009, according to the most recent data compiled by the Congressional Budget Office, and the top 5 percent of taxpayers paid 64 percent.

But income taxes, taken in isolation, do not tell the whole story, because lower-income Americans do pay payroll taxes. But even taking into account all forms of taxation, the top 1 percent still paid 22 percent of federal taxes while earning just 13.4 percent of household income. The top 5 percent paid 40 percent of all federal taxes, despite earning only 26 percent of all income.

No matter how you slice the numbers, it’s hard to understand why anyone would think the wealthy aren’t already shouldering a burden commensurate with their blessings.

In the next few weeks, Obama will keep repeating this “fair share” language as part of his call to raise taxes on those earning more than $250,000 per year. He also wants to close additional loopholes and limit deductions to increase their tax burden further. But bear this in mind: On top of whatever new taxes go into effect in the deal to avert the so-called fiscal cliff, there will be additional new taxes due to Obama’s national health care law. These include a 0.9 percent Medicare tax hike for individuals earning more than $200,000 per year and couples earning more than $250,000 as well as a 3.8 percent surtax on investment income.

Even if Obama gets his way on all of his tax hikes on the wealthy, it still won’t make a dent in the $16.3 trillion national debt. Later in his term, once he has blown all of the new revenue with spending increases and goes back to this well for still more revenues, will the media let Obama get away with claiming the wealthy aren’t paying their “fair share” once again, without specifying what constitutes fairness?

Hell to the YES. The main stream media including NBC, CBS, ABC and their cable siblings are nothing more than propaganda machines for the Obamanation.  Figures don’t lie but liars figure.  Obama is winning because he of the liberal fascist propaganda machine which controls both the news and entertainment media as well as the education system in the United States.

Barack Hussein Obama is First Anti-American POTUS

Yet again, Barack Hussein Obama’s Thanksgiving message left out any direct reference to thanking God, making this the fourth straight year in which the President of the United States has ignored the central message of the holiday in favor of political grandstanding.

This year, Obama’s central message was that now that he’s been re-elected, Americans should agree with all of his policies. His unity routine sounds strangely empty after a campaign in which he focused on dividing Americans:

But most of all, it’s a time to give thanks for each other, and for the incredible bounty we enjoy.

That’s especially important this year. As a nation, we’ve just emerged from a campaign season that was passionate, noisy, and vital to our democracy. But it also required us to make choices – and sometimes those choices led us to focus on what sets us apart instead of what ties us together; on what candidate we support instead of what country we belong to ….

We’re also grateful that this country has always been home to Americans who see these blessings not simply as gifts to enjoy, but as opportunities to give back. Americans who believe we have a responsibility to look out for those less fortunate – to pull each other up and move forward together.

How are we supposed to move forward together, you ask? Why, with greater government spending, of course!

As for God, here was the only mention, used by this president for liberal fascist propaganda sloganeering:

As Americans, we are a bold, generous, big-hearted people. When our brothers and sisters are in need, we roll up our sleeves and get to work – not for the recognition or the reward, but because it’s the right thing to do. Because there but for the grace of God go I. And because here in America, we rise or fall together, as one nation and one people.

No mention of thanking God. None.

“In God We Trust” is the national motto, guaranteed by an act of Congress in 1956. Obama is the first anti-American POTUS in history. God help us all.

Happy Thanksgiving 2012

For each new morning with its light, For rest and shelter of the night, For health and food, For love and friends, For everything Thy goodness sends.  -Ralph Waldo Emerson

The pilgrims made seven times more graves than huts … nevertheless, set aside a day of thanksgiving. H. W. Westermayer

Expanding Dependency is the Foundation of the Obamanation

Increasing numbers of citizens are relying on government handouts to feed their families. Lines for food stamps are eerily reminiscent of the bread lines of the early 1930s. Are we in the midst of another depression?

Recent reports from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program show that the number of families claiming food stamps in the U.S. is rising dramatically.

In the first throes of the recession, 30,841,790 individuals and 13,900,815 families were reliant on government help to stock their cupboards. Now, despite repeated assurances from politicians that the worst of the economic downturn is behind us, more than 47 million people - a staggering 15% of the population –  are taking to social security offices in search of help with groceries.

Nationwide, there are more than 47.1 million Americans on food stamps. That includes 4.1 million in California and close to 4 million in Texas, according to USDA.

There were 26.3 million Americans on food stamps in 2007 before the big recession started and 28.2 million in 2008 before Barack Hussein Obama started his first term.

From 2007 to 2011, enrollment in SNAP increased 70 percent, to 46 million Americans per month at a cost of $78 billion, according to the Congressional Budget Office.

The average monthly family benefit is $250 a month.

How many Obama votes do you think the Food Stamp Program, known as SNAP, generated?

This country is in more trouble than you think.  We have brought it upon ourselves and there is no sign of anything getting better anytime soon. 

Obama’s intention: Expand dependency on the federal government.

Federal spending for food stamps has more than doubled since Obama took office.  The Obama administration saw fit to spend up to $3 million of taxpayers’ money in radio ads to get more Hispanics and working poor on food stamps. Newt Gingrich had the fortitude to tag Obama “the food-stamp president.”

The president’s signature legislative accomplishment, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare to most of us, dramatically expands Medicaid. Spending on Medicaid, the nation’s health program for the poor, is projected to increase by an additional $434 billion per decade. So far, five states have expanded Medicaid under Obamacare, resulting in 500,000 new enrollees to the program. Imagine how many millions more will be enrolled once the Obamacare law is fully implemented.

Most recently, the Obama administration quietly announced it would waive the work requirements written into the 1996 welfare reform law. The bipartisan legislation, which was signed into law by President Clinton, mandates that able-bodied people must work or be preparing for work as a condition for receiving welfare. The law has been a success, dramatically lowering poverty and cutting the number of welfare cases in half. While the impact of the administration’s decision on the number of people receiving welfare is not yet known, the outcome is easy to predict: less self-reliance, more government handouts.

Overall spending on welfare programs is up by more than 40 percent under Obama, and it’s clear from his actions that the president’s vision for America is one of debt and dependency, not opportunity and prosperity.

The problem with the president’s vision is a death spiral: Taxes have to keep going up to pay for the ever-increasing costs of the welfare state. There will come a point where nothing is left in the taxpayers’ pocket to take.

America asked for it and believe me, it will get worse before it gets better.  There are consequences for irresponsible actions.
