Felony Search Warrant Executed on the Bieb

LA Sherrif showed extreme restraint in executing a felony Search warrant on the Bieb's property. 

The warrant was for egging a neigbors house.

11 units were dispatched to execute the warrant and search of the property.

Welcome to the police state boys. Give us any reson and it will be used for us to put our jackboot on your neck.

This is rediculous. This is criminal mischief and vandalism. What were they looking for? Eggs? 

Officer those are free range eggs, the ones used were farm raised.

I mean come on. 
They did arrest one person for felony possession of cocaine. That just shows once they're in they will look for anything. The incident is just the key to get in the door.

I guess depending on the amount of damage it could be felony vandalism due to cost of damage and cleanup but still. Way over the top.

I'm sure the officers time could have been better used trying to stop gangs or some other real crime they have in their liberal utopia.

I wonder if this is the same unit they use to Cold call on prohibit persons in possession of firearms.

Furry Squaters

I found out this morning that I have at least one furry little squater on my property.

I went to let the dog out and she went nust jumping up on the back wall. Next thing I see a fuzzy city criter run down the wall across the patio and up the drain pipe. 

Looked too big to me a mouse but not a large rat.

I guess I get to go on a search mission tonight to see what's in the attic.

Any suggestions on how to get rid of these beasties without hurting doggy and without filling the house with the smell of dead rodent.

I could put the cats up there but they would probably make friends with it.

A New Shooter

My last day of work before the Christmas Holiday I received a phone call from the lovely wife asking if I had seen my daughters cheer coaches post to the book face about being at ye 'ol local outdoor range getting his CHL. I said no and quickly congratulated him as I figured him on the opposite side of a lot of my views being a gay man. Of course that is my fault for stereotyping those that I know.

His response surprised me. He was getting gift certificates for CHL's for himself and his partner. However he has never shot.
After a good bit of back and forth that day followed by a 2 hour conversation on Christmas Eve, (When I was picking up one final present that had just arrived at the gym from him for oldest daughter) which included getting yelled at by the wife for where the hell are you and what are you still doing there and do you know what time it is and what we have to do and what today is!!!?, It was decided that I needed to take him shooting.

A little over a week later we settle on the day after New Years. He meets me at my favorite ye 'ol indoor range with a big ball of nerves.

Go in, do a little bit of paperwork, grab a blue gun, cover grip and safety and onto the range we go.

He did not do too bad. Most shots within the silhouette. After about 150rds of 9mm and 25rds of .380 we head over to the mountain of geese and introduce a few options based on what he shot and what he was looking for.

The shooting was done with an XD-9, M&P 9, and Bodyguard .380.

Since he is looking to go straight into conceal carry and has specific style of dress he liked the single stack 9's. He was very partial to the Sig 938.

He is going to go to the fancy gun range and rent a few before he buys. Which is a great idea in my opinion.

All things said 3 hours later I had a new shooter with an ear to ear grin telling the world about his first shots.

On a side note there was a mother/daughter pair that came in and were taking a lesson from one of the staff members. I did not get to observe much but they brought their gun in one of those file fire box looking containers that weights 50 lbs. I think it was to keep it from sneaking out and shooting someone on the drive over.
