Fun is the enjoyment of pleasure, particularly in leisure activities. Fun is an experience — short-term, often unexpected, informal, not cerebral and generally purposeless. It is an enjoyable distraction, diverting the mind and body from any serious task or contributing an extra dimension to it. Although particularly associated with recreation and play, fun may be encountered during work, social functions, and even seemingly mundane activities of daily living. It may often have little to no logical basis, and opinions on whether or not an activity is fun may differ. A distinction between enjoyment and fun is difficult but possible to articulate, fun being a more spontaneous, playful, or active event. There are psychological and physiological implications to the experience of fun.

    Fun Day Shooting!

    Got out yesterday with a friend I had not been shooting with for a while. Not anything real 'formal' but a lot of just offhand pistol shooting and a little rifle. I did manage to get my 26" Winchester 100 year Commemorative dialed in with the globe sight I installed on it a while while back. I...

    Your favorite 80s films?

    So, last night I was watching Better Off Dead (1985) and I got to thinking today about how many truly amazing films were release in that decade. Be it action, horror, comedy, romantic, surreal, war film, science fiction, and all the rest. So, just tossing it out there: what are your favorite...

    So I was at an indoor range with a fun switch equipped STEN.

    right after I mag dumped it and some guy asked me if I was the guy going full semi-auto. I just didn't know what to say. So I said something to the effect of "nothing semi about it, this is a full auto machine gun." But I could not believe somebody was saying that and not in jest.

    Other State  More California Fun

    So now the state of California wants to charge $63 to run their background check on gun buyers. It never ends. So glad I left.

    Poking fun at the generation gap

    In the tradition of "You might be a redneck..." If you bought your new Glock so you can "mod" it, you might be a millenial... If you refer to you favorite firearm as a "platform" you might be a millenial... If you describe a revolver as "old school" you might be a millenial... If you describe...

    Cartridge you wish you got into much earlier?

    The .44 Magnum has inspired this thought. I got into said earlier in the year and wondered why I had not earlier. I can, and have, run everything from delightfully light .44 Specials to hot loaded, wrist-cracking heavy .44 Magnum loads. I've found the factory-loaded 240-grain loads seem like...
