Got lots of range time worked into the schedule. You should, too!
Current projections show I’m going to have a GREAT weekend; hope you have the same. If I can post, I will, but I need time behind the stock of a few rifles and a couple of pistols. Remember what the graphic says….
As is getting more and more usual these days, H/T to Wirecutter, as he seems to find the most interesting and relevant videos to post. Really, if you’re not going there on a daily basis, you’re missing out on some great posts and some really funny posts!
This one is about if one might survive three 5.56NATO rounds to the chest. Now, admittedly, this is with assumed M193 55gr FMJ, which a lot of people still use. It is NOT Federal MSR (a superb round) or M855 (which is not quite as fast as the M193) or a 62gr OTM, all of which would most likely have catastrophic results. The point? Hit your target and hit it again. Until it stops moving. Watch.
A forward assist on an AR today is simply unnecessary with an out of the box AR from anyone’s shop with first quality parts. The only reason to have it is for the CDI (Chicks Dig It) factor for explaining to your winsome lass how ‘bad ass’ it really is, which is smoke to cover the speaker’s real intentions, but I digress.
The USAF was correct – the FA is unnecessary. To date, even though I want a slab side receiver for my AR’s I can’t find one, so they all have FA’s. I have not, even in nasty, wet, muddy training, ever had to use the FA for its intended purpose. Ever. Especially with higher power recoil springs that I replace the standard spring with on build completion or purchase.
H/T to Wirecutter – He always puts up interesting weapons historical and development videos. If you don’t check him on a daily basis, you should. Lots of entertainment, news, and HILARIOUS posts. This one is here.
Another Lockdown Needed to Save Economy. Pray tell how that will work. This is Orwellian logic, at best.
Vaccine won’t change world right away. No S!*t??? It takes awhile to get all those people vaccinated at the point of a gun, especially when ‘Big Pharma’ has legal immunity from any law suit from undesirable side effects, including death. What change in the world are they after, other than a significant reduction in the population??
It has to be painfully evident that the globalist cabal is going for all the frickin’ marbles. If you can’t see that, you’re going to be in the first harvest.
In related news, guns keep flying off the shelves and ammo is becoming a more finite resource. On the one hand, that’s good. On the other, owning a gun a few boxes or cases of ammunition no more makes you able to defend yourself, your family, or your home than owning a Baby Grand Piano makes you Concert Pianist. Gotta get out there and train.
Shooting is a perishable skill. If you don’t use it, you’ll lose it.
On the 28th of July, an article in SHTF Plan, here, indicated that we’re being warned about the 2nd lockdown coming soon. This time, we might be really locked down, depending on how the remaining police and national guard troops respond to the tyrannical orders of the governors who spit and piss on constitutional rights. This pic immediately below shows peaceful protest that may never be seen again.
An aside. You are aware, aren’t you, that the term, ‘lockdown’ is a term coined by prison guards to ensure inmates are tightly controlled? Just wanted to make sure as it’s now part of the lexicon used in schools, churches, corporations, etc. We ‘lockdown’ to make sure nobody can move or do anything not authorized by the ‘aw-thor-i-tays.’ Digression complete.
This morning, as I read the on-line news, my gubernator, Gretchen Twitmer, was quoted CNN with Chris ‘Fredo’ Cuomo, saying, ” I’m trying to nip this in the bud,” says @GovWhitmer on Covid-19 in MI.
“If we want to have any shot of getting our kids back in schools safely in four weeks, our actions today are going to dictate whether or not that’s possible… that’s why we have to tighten things up now.” pic.twitter.com/QWmrq1PlSG

They always, ALWAYS telegraph their moves. They really are going for broke on this; clearly, Whitmer’s mission is to destroy Michigan’s economy and make the state population of 10 million people dependent on the government. All sorts of things can happen then. All for the betterment of our communist masters.
This is the precursor to the American Holomodor. It will happen by design, because the economy is being shut down by design. If food can’t be brought in, people can be starved into submission. Food is a weapon.
Another article by Fred Reed posted at Unz.com, titled, “It’s Gonna Blow Be a Miracle if it Don’t”
“The media encourage the rioters, inflame passions either deliberately or through partisanship. They have little idea what they are encouraging. It may seem strange to say that the media do not know what is going on—it is their business to know–but they don’t. They were blindsided by the Trump because they had no idea of conditions in the country, in Flint and Gary, in Wheeling. Today they do not know what is brewing out there, or of how much they contribute to it.”
“And BLM [Antifa, BAMN, NFAC] wants to go into the suburbs to get Whitey. God help us. Then it will well and truly blow. BLM doesn’t know how many white men are sick of the chaos and destruction, sick of BLM. They quietly say, “Bring it on. Let’s settle it.” Laden words.” (Emphasis and brackets added for clarity.)
“It’s gonna blow. Short of a miracle.”
Whether or not you are convinced these groups mean to kill whites to take their wealth for ‘reparations’, do not discard their intent. They can learn to use the weapons they have, no matter how inept they may seem now. Remember the clip from, “Black Hawk Down,” that showed how the SF troop was finally killed after all his ammo was expended by a man with only the training necessary to pull a trigger at about 5 feet from the target? Expect BHD levels of violence and attacks if it does blow, as Fred indicates.
Do read the all the articles posted above. Get your stuff together. As the song says, there’s a bad moon on the rise.
I think a better title might be, “YOU GOT TA BE SHITTIN’ ME PRIVATE PYLE!” Great entertainment and very interesting from the perspective that he is wearing his ‘kit’while he shoots, keeps pointing the rifle at the ceiling between relays and loading, has ill-fitting kit, doesn’t ground his weapon pointing down range, has the ejection port closed (indicating a bolt in the forward position, recoil from the 5.56 giving him a hard time, forgetting to close the bolt to fire, and so on. Lots of information in the video if you have what it takes to watch the whole thing. The guy is a safety issue. And he’s trying to teach people on the range.
I’m really looking forward to the week in August when he said NFAC is going back to Louisville to either get justice or burn it down. I’m thinking that’s not going to work out so well, in fact, I bet they don’t go, or if they do, they’ll be REAL polite.
UPDATE: The ‘Grandmaster’ teaching basic nomenclature and functioning of a Post-Ban AR he states he bought in Germany in ’90.
And another. His ‘weapons’ training for his ‘army.’ All I can say is, “HO-LEE-SHIT!” POSER ALERT!!!
Forewarned is forearmed. First, stay away from crowded protest locations. Second, go ‘heeled’ at all times, as they used to say in Tombstone, and three, if forced to engage to save your life or that of another, make sure you don’t hesitate and you hit your aiming point to neutralize the threat. Controlled pairs in the Occular Cavity do nicely. Remember, everybody, including NFAC, wears vests.
The commercial-grade fireworks-turned-bombs were discovered almost immediately after the “protest” ended last Sunday, prompting federal officials to investigate. What they found is that the makeshift devices were intentionally tweaked to make them deadly, putting the very lives of BLM targets at risk.
“The alert states that approximately 100 to 200 people dressed in dark clothing, backpacks, goggles, and helmets approached the ICE office in Atlanta,” writes Bob Price for Breitbart News, referring to an “activity alert” that was issued by the FBI following the incident. “The subjects reportedly carried shields, bats, and large sticks.”
Some of the fallout from the incident included 20 broken windows and the remnants of “commercial-grade fireworks with nails embedded in the mortar shell,” according to bomb technicians. You can see these embedded nails for yourself in the following image:
The incident in which this all occurred had originally been dubbed as a “Freedom Fighters” event based out of Portland, which quickly spread all the way across the country to Atlanta after organizers called on BLM “activists” from other cities to take a stand in “solidarity.”
Video footage of the incident, which you can watch on Twitter, shows some of these firework bombs going off in front of the Atlanta ICE field office.
Atlanta “protesters” used green lasers to BLIND law enforcement
Some of the “protesters” there also reportedly used green lasers to try to blind and impair law enforcement officers from trying to intervene. They also smashed windows, set fires, and inflicted whatever mayhem they could on the facility.
“This kind of device is clearly designed to maim or injure anyone who might be close when it goes off,” stated an unidentified federal official about the firework bombs, speaking on the condition of anonymity as he is not permitted to speak publicly about this investigation.
Other buildings that incurred damage and destruction include various immigration-related field offices, including an immigration court where immigrants go to receive documents and comply with the laws concerning their presence in the United States.
Federal Protective Services (FPS), along with the FBI and the Atlanta Police Department, are all looking into the matter further as part of a multi-agency investigation. They hope to determine who is responsible and hold them accountable.
Mainstream media still falsely claiming that the “protests” are all “peaceful”
Despite continued violent incidents such as this, the mainstream media, including ABC News, is stillfalsely claiming that BLM “protesters” are all acting peacefully and with civility, and that all reports of extreme violence and destruction are “fake news.”
In Oakland, California, as another example, where “protesters” vandalized and set fire to a police station, ABC News reported the incident as “peaceful.” After receiving a flood of tweets challenging this false claim, ABC News responded by saying that it was “a peaceful demonstration” that merely “intensified.”
“These people are not protesters, they are terrorists,” wrote one Breitbart News commenter, affirming what President Donald Trump has previously stated about these violent groups being akin to domestic terrorists.
“Use the Insurrection Act to blow them away,” wrote another, offering a slightly different perspective on the situation. “They are not protesters but traitors to the U.S. and deserve terminal sanctions.”
