Pumps for Punks

Not real sure about the context of this pic I Googled (from somewhere here), but the time has come for New Orleans and other areas overwhelmed by looters.

This New Orleans cop seems to be taking that consideration under advisement. A 12-gauge seems to be about the only law in the Big Easy right now.

I wonder if Remington offers a "Looter Special."

I saw on MSNBC last night, they had a news crew in a Wal-Mart and taped police officers stealing shoes from the store. When confronted, they go "I am doing my job, looking for looters". There were looters everywhere and the cops had a shopping cart full of shoes.

The top picture is of Terry Frey, in Charlotte Harbor, FL, taken after Hurricane Charley. An update of his story can be found at the following url.

Hopefully the commenting system will let the link stay!

A Remington "Looters Special"...I think it's called a Norinco 98. It'll do in a pinch, for $150.

As an owner of other Norinco products, I'll take the real Remington 870, or a Mossberg 500, "for a few dollars more."

I actually intend to blog about a similar topic tonight, so hang onto that thought...

As an owner of Remington 870's and Mossberg 500's, I'd tend to agree, and add the Benelli to the list. I'll wait for that other topic, too.

The survival gun list will have to wait another night. It is midnight and I'm blogged out.

Help where you can, folks.

Down here the weapon of choice is the Remington 870 express with 18.5 in barrel. Mag extention tube for 7+ shells. Side clip with additional ammo. 2 1/2 in. 01 buck or turkey shot. no choke.
Tally ho!
