Sarah to highlight NRA banquet with new moose gun

What do you get the woman who has everything? In particular, the governor of the great state of Alaska who already has her own moose gun? Another moose gun, of course, and just to make sure it will get the leftwingnuts' panties in a wad again, let's make it an Assault Rifle in moose caliber.

That's precisely what the National Rifle Association is doing for Sarah Palin, who is a lifetime NRA member and proud to be a hunter and a strong defender of our Second Amendment right to bear arms. The New York Daily News has the story about Sarah's new moose gun.

The all-white "Alaskan Hunter" - fashionable until Labor Day - is the civilian version of a modified M-4 rifle carried by U.S. troops overseas.

Alaska's feisty Republican governor, who is weighing a potential 2012 presidential bid, will receive the rifle made by Templar Consulting at a May 14 NRA banquet.

It's engraved with Palin's name and adorned with a map of the state on the collapsible stock - made legal after the expiration of the assault weapons ban in 2004. The Big Dipper from the state flag is etched on the magazine well behind a vented barrel guard.

The rifle is chambered in .50-caliber "Beowulf." It's the same caliber used by heavy machine guns, which can take down big game, and in war zones "can disable both motor vehicles and assailants with body armor," according to ammo manufacturer Alexander Arms' Web site.

Templar gun designer Bob Reynolds told the NRA's magazine that Palin had stood up for Second Amendment gun rights and "I just wanted to do something to give back."

Well, if Sarah can go to .50 cal., maybe I will too. I've been thinking about one of those G.I. .50 cal. conversion slides for my Glock 20 10mm. I've already got the 9x25mm conversion barrel, which is sorta 9mm Super Magnum, for my G20. Might as well step on up to .50 G.I., too.
