Rollin' Like Sisyphus

Good Music Friday

Posted in Good Music Friday by Huckleberry on January 30, 2015

Let it be said that, if nothing else, the Friday before Super Bowl is a great time to pick up cheap crap in bulk, like soda, beer, snacks, ground beef, whatever the Hell chicken tenders are, and if you’re the market for a new flatscreen TV, you’ve got about 60 hours left before the deals run dry.
Oh, and for prepping, this is a great time to stock up on pallets of bottled water for cheap.
If you want a sign of gloom and doom to dour the weekend’s festivities, you couldn’t do worse than the unsettling indicators that by year’s end, punitive interest rates will be a thing around the world, because saving money should cost you dearly.
Spend comrade!
Anyway.
Not much on the agenda; weather’s supposed to be about perfect, so again I hope to spend as little of the next two days indoors as possible.
There’s a football game. Whether I watch any of it or not, I don’t know, but I do know I’ll pipe the audio feed out of my outdoor speakers, pointed at the vegan neighbors, just to raise their hackles a bit.
Sometimes we have to make our own kind of fun, you know?

Gun Chalk

I’m not sure I see the tactical merit in an auto shotgun.
This seems like a bit much to me. A great feat of gunsmithery, to be sure, but it’s certainly not a defensive weapon, unless you’re defending against the Ducky Boys, and for offense I think I’d rather have a rifle instead.
What say you, novelty or necessity?


Wings de Huckleberry

Fixin’s

8 Full Chicken Wings
2 Cups Buttermilk
1 Tbsp Dry Rub (any type)
2 Tsp Cayenne Pepper
1 Tsp Black Pepper

Doin’s

Cut the wing tips off and toss ‘em. Separate wings from drumettes.
Mix buttermilk, dry rub, cayenne pepper and black pepper together, then pour into x-large ziplock bag. Toss in the wings and drumettes, shake up to coat everything, then put the bag in the fridge overnight to marinate.
The next morning, place a colander in the sink, take the ziplock bag and dump it into the colander. Let the wings drain some while you go fire up your pit. Use apple wood or peach wood and build a fire that hits 275 – since these aren’t going to be on the pit very long, you can go with the higher temp. Once it’s at 275, put the wings on and let them smoke up for about 15 minutes, but don’t overdo it. You don’t want them fully cooked in the smoker. While they’re smoking, set up a pot on the stove top with vegetable oil.
Take the wings off the pit, then fire up your fry pot and get the oil to 350. Fry up the wings for about five minutes or until the chicken is fully cooked. Remove from the fry pot and coat with a little more dry rub for flavor.
Let them cool some, then serve up with BBQ ranch, Tapatio sauce or whatever else you like.

    Auto shotgun? I… don’t know. I think it would be pretty devastating against unarmored targets at close range. So maybe in a zombie apocalypse. Not my choice for offensive weapon either, unless you can get up close and personal first. I don’t like the idea of being defenseless against someone that is a 100 yards away.

    I suppose it would be ideal for any situation that a handgun would work for, minus the ability to conceal. The ability to fire semi auto would be necessary.

      I’m not sure if the AA has this feature; it looks like even one trigger pull is a three-to-five shot burst.

    Semi-auto, a good one, would be useful. More for the untrained. Not so much auto. But a hellafun novelty if I had the dough and political clout to own one. Urhm, it would get a safe, within a safe, however. Hmm… though if you were an evil government, and wanted to get rid of some sorts, leaving those out to play with, if at great collateral cost, might just work. I don’t think it would, honestly, be stable enough for real close dire wetwork. Unless you loaded it down a lot. Hellafun novelty, as I see it.

    “Novelty” is correct, I think. There are few conceivable circumstance where you would need to throw that much lead into the air. Facing Quantrill at Lawrence? Yeah, you could take out 400 Bushwhackers so long as all of them weren’t firing at you at the same time with 40 cal handguns. In the movies you always get the first shot, in reality not so much. The advantage of a shotgun indoor defensively is that no one can really see what they’re shooting at and a shotgun increases odds because it covers a larger blind spot. Does shooting 60 rounds a minute increase odds much more? I doubt it.

      Absolutely.
      And besides, if you need suppressive fire on a small-scale level that badly, SAW guns are a much better option I think.
