Top 10 Handguns for Self-Defense

Top 10 Handguns for Self-Defense | Riding the Silk Road | Scoop.it
Tom Luongo's insight:

I love a good gun and many of the guns on this list are quality firearms but honestly, lists like this drive me insane.  The bst gun for self-defense is the one you can hit your target with..... RELIABLY.  In my case it's a full sized heavy-as-sin CZ 85 Combat in satin nickel with a nickel-boron slide couresty of my 5+ years of work perfecting the coating process at UCT Coatings. 

 

So, now not only can I reliaby hit a 4" clay target at 50yds I don't have spend an hour cleaning it afterwards.  And, of course, the best self defense weapon is not putting yourself in a position to have to defend yourself in the first place.

The Golden Truth: It's Getting Ugly

The Golden Truth: It's Getting Ugly | Riding the Silk Road | Scoop.it

Dave in Denver writes:

 

"The declining state of the economy, as I've been explaining for a while now, is starting to finally manifest in economic and financial reports. As most of you know, corporate earnings for the 3rd quarter have been pretty dismal, with lots of earnings "misses" occurring.

 

"Second, the Government released its "income statement" for the month of October, the first month of the Govt's Fiscal Year 2013. It showed a $120 billion deficit, substantially higher than was expected and estimated and higher than October 2012's $98.5 billion. Here's the LINK The Government is saying "technicalities" led to a higher deficit. But the OMB didn't seem to know about those technicalities when it projected a $113 billion deficit a couple of weeks ago. Where were these seasonal "technicalities" last year? I smell an accelerating spending deficit coming, which means more printing! ..."

Investors Selling Because They Need the Money - TrimTabs Money Blog

Investors Selling Because They Need the Money - TrimTabs Money Blog | Riding the Silk Road | Scoop.it

Charles Biderman says:

 

"Individual investors have been getting out of US equity mutual funds for most of this year. And the pace of outflows has been soaring recently. Outflows for all of 2012 now stand at $100 billion. Half of that, $50 billion, came out during the last three months. Flight from the funds is not a new trend. In fact, about $134 billion flowed out of equity mutual funds in 2011. What’s really puzzling is that despite these heavy outflows, stock prices have gone up."
