Even in California 

Been on hiatus visiting family and celebrating my wife’s special birthday in California. Where you can still find gun culture. Like on the bumper of a work van in Half Moon Bay.

Skate boarding, guns, guns, technology cult.

Don’t seem to go together naturally, but there it is.


  1. I don’t see why “they don’t seem to go together naturally”. One aspect of firearms sports, and I assume skateboarding, is that it can be an informal competition that gives an immediate physical, and visual, result. You make your jump, or you don’t. You bust the clay pigeon, or you don’t. And the folks you’re with are on a level playing field, making the jump, or the shot, right then, right there, in front of everybody.

    Another aspect of firearms interest is that it offers, like other technical fields, the pretty much unlimited opportunity for learning the secrets of “How it really works.”. Complete with more and more obscure details and insider language. Compare the language used about the new super duper iphone, (Gigs, apps, etc, etc, etc.) and the language used about the new super duper AR, (Dwell time, buffer weights, etc, etc, etc.).

    Of course, this is part of firearms as an interest, sport, avocation, or hobby, not firearms as utilitarian tools. But, let’s face it, most people spend a lot more time and resources on their avocations than on utilitarian tools. Not that there’s anything at all wrong with that, it’s human nature. I think it was Jeff Cooper who once commented that most people will train a lot harder to win a brass trophy than they will just to save their lives.

    For what it may be worth.

    Wafa Wafa, Wasara Wasara.

  2. The folks at Hill and Mac Gunworks making the STG-N had a note on 11/18/16 that they had to get all the pre ordered guns to the Republic of Kalifornia before 11/21 before they were banned for some reason. Don’t know if they made the dead line or what the band was. They have long said on there web site rifles shipped to magazine restricted states would come with a legal one.
