First post published on Nov 8 2013
I would like to thank everyone who reads this site. We just reached 14,000 views since this blog was started in November 2013. My job keeps be busy and I sometimes can’t post as often as I like. I hope to change that now I am moving to a new job next week.
Thanks to everyone who has commented or emailed on posts or just read some of my posts.
I am in Harrisburg PA this week teaching. And next week I will be near Dallas TX.
Posts will be erratic. Although I did shoot a video if me going through my gun collection. Should be up in a day or two.
We had a good year.. well it was only two months ago that I started this blog. Thanks everyone for visiting and commenting on the articles here or on one of the social media’s sites that we publish to.
Gun Owners had a good year for most part unless you live in California, New York or CT. If you live in one of these Police States, then I recommend you move.
The rest of America lost more freedoms as Obama continues to convert Americna into a Police State. Here’s hoping that American’s will wake-up in 2014.
I hope everyone has a Happy and Safe New Year. If you are going out and not drinking, it might be a good night make sure that you are carrying tonight. There will probably be many Drunk maniacs out on New Years Eve. Stay Stafe

The following were the three most popular posts here on http://www.crypticpunk.com

This blog is only around two months old and we are doing pretty well. We averaged 8 views a day in November and we are looking to end December with an average of 200 views a day in December, which is pretty good since I mostly only post Mon-Fri and I took a few days off for Christmas. Everything I post a post on this blog, now also publishes to Twitter, Facebook, Google +, and Tumbler. I am going to introduce some contests in January to boost readership. And I am getting involved in cross promoting this website with another websites.
So I find myself looking for others to contribute to this blog. There is no money involved at this point. This is not a money making venture at this time. But it may be in the future.
What I am looking for is a few people to come with a weekly column. For example, I am already doing gun of the week from my collection on one day. Pick anything related to any of topics I have written about here on the site. Guns, Gun History and Anti-gun politics always draw the most hits. Some of my posts have been Satire, and some noticed, some did not. That’s ok.
Conditions: No money but you can get credit with your name and contact info. You can even write under a assumed name if you want. To apply send me a sample weekly column. I am looking for around 600 works or more. I am looking for proper grammar and spelling and the ability to tell a story or convey a thought. Pictures tell the story as well. Include pictures if you can. Send your sample article and a brief bio to firstname.lastname@example.org. Use the Subject: Writers Wanted.
I will be taking a few days off for Christmas. On the 24th my son and I are flying my mother up to Maine, to visit my brother. She is 78 years old and has never ridden in a small plane before ( 4 seat Cessna 172). On Wednesday is the Christmas Day Festivities at several different family houses.
May you and yours have a very Happy and Safe Christmas. May Santa bring you all the firepower that you ever wanted.
And unless there is a large 2nd Amendment or Gun Story, I will see you again at the end of the week.
