Didn't make it to IGOLD this year but w/ the NRA AM in St Louis, I was able to attend and have lots of fun w/ other bloggers, gun enthusiasts and friends. The election results were entirely unsurprising w/ the moral pudding that the GOP keeps putting up for candidates and now the nation and gun owners are going to pay for it.  On the positive note, Moore v Madigan came out majorly in our favor although we can expect the state to appeal all the way to SCOTUS, especially now that they think they have the gun control momentum. I fully expect 2013 to be a year of suckage on the firearms front, economically, you name it.  Maybe when the Mayans said 'End of the World', this is what they meant.
