I carry subscriptions to several firearms publications:

Guns&Ammo

Shotgun News

American Rifleman

 

and I must say I am fairly irked due to the fact that since I have been receiving the magazines, they would almost always carry an ad (I believe to be sponsored by) andyabsinth at absinthe24.net. (Isn't that the gentleman who did business out of NY?)

 

The ad simply has a bottle of KING in the background (go figure) with a gun held "gangsta" style in the front, pointed at the bottle, and at the bottom the wording simply reads "Take a Shot".

 

Its mildly upsetting at worst, but I can't help but feel that no matter which hobby I choose there are always people who are out there willing to debase and spread misinformation about it. It really reflects to me how popular culture continues to make America its bitch for all intents and purposes, and how social responsibility is a value that is all but forgotten here in this fine country when it comes to mainstream (and even underground) media.

 

I dunno, maybe I'm just oversensitive, but I see this kind of social violation and it just really makes me weep for my children.

Freedom of speech is truly a double edged sword. The first time I truly realised this was when my cousin, who was 12 at the time, loved and knew a rap song that explained how to make crack. I think it's just up to the consumer to not buy what they're selling if they disagree with the product.

Aside from catching a rare glimpse of your screen name, and avatar, this was the line that drew me in.

 

You have children? :shock:

I'm not a father, yet. I just have a cesspool of potential children floating around in my loins.

 

As for elfs question, one could peice together that I have been courting a lovely girl and am drawing ever closer to making her my wife, while also pursuing a newfound hobby of collecting and shooting guns (which is just about as expensive as pursuing an absinthe hobby).

 

So I haven't been around for awhile

 

I did recently open my 2004 Jade Edouard and will be opening my 2004 NO in July, so I still drink, just not as much.

Thanks, Conju, I should now have no trouble losing those last few pounds I've been meaning to shed, buddy. :cheers:
