The Biden Special!

Heh. Wally sent me this picture yesterday of one of his latest projects:


Look, it's the latest offering from Biden Tactical!

The bottom shotgun has a 9" barrel, the top is 12.5". The shotguns started life as Mossberg Maverick HS12 shotguns (Hmmm. wonder if Mossberg would offer up one for T&E?), and were massaged by York Arms into their current configurations. Figure if you're limited to two shots a la Joe Biden's tips on self-defense, you might as well get the best spread possible. You know, since you're going to be firing into the air, rather than, say, at your assailant where it might do some good.

I'm still in shock that this was actual, honest-to-goodness "advice" given by the Vice President of the United States. I mean, this is the kind of talk you'd expect to hear from a 10 year old, perhaps, and one that had ever seen a firearm outside of Nintendo's "Duck Hunt". It ignores the rules of firearms safety and common sense, and in the end, anyone following Biden's "advice" would wind up in violation of local laws - as well as facing an unknown adversary with an empty gun.

Fortunately, the rest of us that live on planet Earth and not fantasy Biden land have other, better options...

That is all.

I am waiting to hear about the brave soul that follows Biden's advice and it charged by the DA for discharge of a firearm within 100yds of a dwelling and uses Biden's suggestion as a defense. It would be more delicious if it happened in DE and Beau had to support the prosecution.

Biden is saying shoot like a drunk cowboy so that when the "Assault Weapon" ban is passed legal citizens will be breaking the law with the only home defense weapon available. Thus oppening the door for further gun control. (What do you need a shut gun for home defense? Thats a terrible defense weapon. Take Karate and rip their heart out kid.) That is all

You ask if *Mossberg* would offer up one for T&E ?
For I am a bit offended at that statement, sir!

One of the unaltered versions, Wally. I can't own a SBS that doesn't come from the factory that way...

Wally said...


Yes, Jay. That is correct. These are "factory" guns; Factory York Arms guns to be clear....

Anyone who's played Duck Hunt knows that a 12 gauge won't even take down a mangy mutt. There for it must be a horrible self defense weapon.

You should see the video someone posted to youtube about this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jafkVM-jnbE The main problem is the lack of proper instruction and proper gun control in this video, but there is a point being made.

And unfortunately some of us live in New Castle County Delaware, where the Biden resides.
