Re: Firearms Chat: Yeet Cannon 2 Electric Boogaloo

Asking nicely...could the name of the thread be changed to perhaps... Electric "Avenue?" I've seen a notice, and more recently heard a report on NPR that the other word is being tied more and more closely to extremists. I am not, so... the center must hold. Wouldn't want people happening upon this s...

Re: Home Defense Choices

Tell me more about the threat? Does anyone that lives there drink alcohol or use drugs? Of his options, I'd add a good lockbox and safely secure them. A group of 20-year olds with ball bats or broom sticks can take apart just about anything in about 15 seconds. The best proven shot should stand over...

Re: Vortex optics

I've used them. I do not own one. I had everything I needed by the time they entered the market. They are a good company. Their products are rugged and more in line economically with what most shooters want to spend, from low to high end. If you look to what many of the competition long-gunners are ...

Re: College kids

Everything Raptor wrote. Assuming that you've taught them about the big, bad world, keeping their head on a swivel, keeping a letter opener nearby and all that, my first thought is that you shouldn't worry. But, as a parent, of course you do... (also, for daughters, don't accept open drinks, that an...

Re: Social Unrest Going Viral Globally

TacAir said: The protests may be driven by economic factors, rather then the other way around. More precisely, they're driven by rising popular anger over corrupt and venal elites that have rigged the system for their own advantage, while systematically plundering the 99%. At some point the 99% are...

Re: Tactical bags that don't look like tactical bags?

I fight hard to prevent drawing full conclusions. But I do collect one premise after another. If I make it to the end of a sting I try to remember the completion and consequence.

Re: Mexico becoming a failed state?

The "targeted" explanation is half-assed. Does it mean the cartels and their sicarios are protecting land or ending this family expansion?
Sad that this sickness cannot be stopped because the demand signal is so very high.

Moab, apologies for the delay. I was in STA at the same time but on the East Coast. (Unus Supra; More privately if you desire). School seats for 1st & 2d MARDIV and Quantico, and ARS, were difficult and good platoons provided much of the same training in house. Visited some of the same places throug...
