All right!

Man knows how to party.

Congrats on the book sales, and my thanks to the Instapundit and Dr. Helen, too.

Hahahaha! Behold the power of the Instalanche!

Congratulations, Aaron - that grin is priceless. Now go murder some cans for us (and don't shoot your eye out, kid)!

Pretty damned sweet, man!
Ahhh...the spoils of success.

Great Job Aaron...nothing better than a dapper dan man holding an AR-15 with a shit-eating grin getting ready to ETD by hunting moronic liberals.

Is that a ACOG scope? And if so do you have the back up sight attached as well? PS Welcome to the club

Captain Capitalism said...

Tis an ACOG, but I don't know what you mean by a back up scope?

There are sites "carved" on the top of the scope so if the battery dies I can switch to manual.

Captain Capitalism said...

Thanks Bill! More importantly, get it into the hands of a young kid. THat's where we're going to do the most damage.

Nice!

Planning to grab a copy of Worthless. I just got picked up as an adjunct instructor by the local community college, going to be teaching a philosophy section this spring, possibly several quarters following that, too. It's another opportunity to do what I did the last time I was given the helm of intro Phil. courses: teach the useful, beneficial portions of the material, but warn my young, impressionable charges away from the siren song of the department lifers who needed to dash undergraduate futures on the rocks of the department in order to perpetuate their own bloated, over-blown careers. I'm thinking that including Worthless as recommended reading could be of great value to my students.

More love from Instapundit.

AN AR-15 for Valentine’s Day.

Couldn't happen to a more deserving fellow.

I have to say that's the first time I've seen the Cap'n in a suit and tie.

And the grin is priceless.

That is sweet.

Captain Capitalism said...

Paul,

Let me know if you need copies on the cheap. I can order some and get a discount. More important to help out the kids and get this into their hands than me make a killing.

Cpt.

Captain Capitalism said...

You need to do Bradley Cooper's poses for the A-Team with that and post them.

Nick Rowe said...

Excellent.

Dennis said...

Yup, back up sights (i.e. iron sights) are in place. Easier to see in the large version of the picture.

Nice piece.

I a Colt AR-15. It was a plasticky piece of junk. I swapped it for an AK-47.
