Re: COVID-19 Chat Thread

Their take away is they think the story is actually referring to one of the ...

Re: The Coming Civil War - (Warning: No Politics)

My purpose in inquiring about the demographics of the rioters and protesters was to try to gain some insight into who I should be concerned about while moving around. The answer seems to be "anybody." I have opinions about the white, white collar protesters but they are political so I shan't share ...

Re: The Coming Civil War - (Warning: No Politics)

I was under the impression that most "protesters" are unemployed while all the working folks are too busy to get involved in this mess beyond watching the evening news? With historically high unemployment, there are hordes of people available to get involved. Either way, we're staying clear of dens...

I wonder why these violent episodes are mostly at night? Night will get longer soon, with both daylight savings and seasonal change. At least, maybe, the season's weather may dampen participant's enthusiasm (pun intended). Keep your powder dry, and your head on a swivel. People don't get off work f...

you can get an angled picatinny mount and have the laser offset to one side. This also helps to get around a front sight if you have one.

+1 on checking local independent shops. They often have stuff the internet doesn't. That said, do you have a place to buy 300 BLK ammo? Because right now that's harder to find than the guns if you don't want to pay 3x what it cost a few months ago. People who chose BLK as their goto round are hurti...

Oh, and what's your budget? I am fully aware of what a cop-out answer this is, but "as much as it takes without being stupid and overpaying due to price gouging".

Even that's an oversimplification. It's not incorrect, but neither is it correct. The problem, especially in the US, is trying to apply the same rules everywhere.

That said IMO the origin/evolution of the virus itself (whether man made or natural) is irrelevant as to the question of was it used as a weapon. If it is man made that does not mean it was developed as weapon and if natural that does not mean it cannot be used as a weapon. The current claim I see ...
