WAIT. “...I have three cars following me at all times,” McAlpine continued. “We have tails in most of our locations, and the police will not address this.

So my sister gifted me a pair of proper bore-square offset rails and I've been more-seriously shopping for optics ever since (because srsly it was $120 for the pair and they're still sitting in the desk drawer 'cause the sights Precious has now are still zeroed and I'm not mucking with 'em until I have a reason to). Today after work I hit a Grocery Outlet (outside the city limits so I could get plastic bags which I reuse) and on the way I saw a signboard on the sidewalk saying "GUNS". Naturally I investigated and discovered a little hole-in-the-wall shop. Spent money I shouldn't'a on a new PMAG30, on principle, but while there I saw one of these for $149. Which I won't be able to afford for at least a couple months but at least now I can hold it in my hand and fiddle with it before buying. No reviews yet... but I did fiddle. It appears to have a true 1.0x setting, at which the crosshair looks like a Remchester's duplex, but as you zoom the reticle zooms with the image to reveal Mil-Dots (meaning the MOAs stay the same) - and the center section illuminates in red, blue or green. Kinda stiff on the zoom ring (which just means it won't get nudged) but I expect I can find a throw-lever to fit, for racing. Hmm. -Furthermore I'd be supporting a local shop.

  • Apparently the (latest round of...) official property theft in New York is not entirely as represented - but everything is in place for it to be. -Also the cops on the cop forum could simply be lying.
  • "They are lucky to get out of that scrape with the law alive."
  • "...[C]itizens in the area are feeling uneasy about the measures taken against the general public." YES. YES WE ARE.
  • "The National Tactical Officers Association (NTOA) announce a partnership with the Below 100 Initiative to reduce the annual line-of-duty deaths to below 100, a number not seen since 1944. The Below 100 Initiative, founded in 2010, is based on improving officer safety through education, training and individual officer responsibility." You mean "training" like this?

    Überpr0n "Ludicrously Huge!" See also more pics linked in comments.


    Giving more thought to that AIM Sports 1-4x24mm scope. One thing I noted when handling it was the weight, which further examination of the specs says is over a pound. It doesn't have BDC, but on the other hand it doesn't cost Three Thousand Freaking Dollars (which linked product is more than a quarter-pound heavier), and it does have Mil-Dots and I've already captured .FLVs from YouTube which purport to instruct in their use - the rest is math and practice.

    Meanwhile I just received money-I-shouldn't'a-spent, from Primary Arms' Black Friday Sale: A new Vltor BCM Large charging handle for the preci$ion upper I'm trying to build for Precious, the exact same model I'm already using on the Palmetto State Armory mid-length upper; the C.A.T. M4 bolt/carrier cleaning tool everyone seems so happy with; and a Butler Creek LULA for the AR, which I just tested on a STANAG and boy-howdy it works as advertised. Been meaning to get that last one since the county passed a bigoted and nonsensical "law" against loaded magazines in "public places" even if you don't have a firearm with you. Anyway it makes it hugely easier to unload an AR magazine; srsly they advertise 5 seconds to dump 30 rounds and it's true. Loading, as directed, is no faster than by hand and slower than chargers - though I see they offer some kind of charger tool as well which I will investigate later - but it does save the fingers.

    Bloody civil war. We're not the ones trying to start it. ALL WE WANT IS TO BE LEFT ALONE.

    I have been warning about the impending reinstitution of human slavery and Michael G. sends evidence I WAS RIGHT, AGAIN. "So long as doctors are free to decide which patients they will see, and free to decide where they will practice, this is going to be a stumbling block for the central planners in Washington." And they just can't have that. Digging for a reference on the second page I found, from just one month ago: "...Democrat delegate candidate Kathleen Murphy said that since many doctors are not accepting medicaid and medicare patients, she advocates making it a legal requirement for those people to be accepted." And if the doctor says "No"? What then?

    Michael also sends: When you don't know what else to do, blame the Jews.

    Which segues to the new Horst-Wessel-Lied. I'M NOT MAKING THIS UP

    So I'm listening to the show and the local station has dead air so I'm streaming from Nevada and comes a commercial for some range, voiced by talker Lars Larson, boasting of their possession of a "FBI law enforcement" training simulator. And I have to ask whether it involves "simulating" shooting an unarmed woman in the head while she holds her infant daughter, or burning a couple dozen children to death in their church.

    Later, radio news, someone from the aforementioned FBI reveals they can turn on anyone's webcam without their knowledge. Because we can trust the government! -I happen to have a webcam. I haven't plugged it in for at least a year. Originally because my bandwidth is rationed but now I have another reason. -And no, Petze the Linux laptop doesn't have one, it's too old.

    Yup - halfway through 1636: The Devil's Opera the cop characters turn to the only tool in their box: Threatening to destroy an innocent man's life if he doesn't grovel to their demands. -A few chapters later one of the supporting characters berates them for bullying his friend, but like real cops, they go into full psychotic denial, really believing they're the good guys and anyone who doesn't instantly do everything they say must be guilty of something. I'm sure that's not what the authors are trying to present in the story; but based on very personal experience and thousands of documented examples nationwide, that's what I'm reading.

    Cops are the bad guys. I know they are and I have more proof than I ever would have wanted.

    This article is relevant to my interests. What's the difference between a "heavy varmint" upper for an AR, and a long-range competition or sniper upper? Probably just the color. -But it will still be months before I can afford a barrel, and I probably shouldn't select other parts until I have that. Though I am thinking free-float for this upper, with a low-profile gas block. What I do have is a semi-stripped flattop upper (with M4 ramp cuts, so that affects barrel selection) with ejection port cover and forward assist; complete bolt carrier group (conventional direct impingement, not seeking nonstandard piston I won't be able to find or salvage parts for); Vltor BCM charging handle; and a proven-functional complete lower to drop it onto.

    It has to be green. That's important. I know a guy who can DuraCoat whatever free-float tube I end up with.

Online tomorrow-ish when the library's open again. Not sure how far I'll go with the Ithaca 37, as removing the internals requires removing the buttstock. OTOH I did the full treatment on the M11/Auto-5, and there are a lot of M37s around. Future Tutorials will include a Winchester M1894, to be representative of most lever-action repeating rifles, though I won't be doing a Disassembly video on that, as Jim Green of Gun Works already has a very good two-part treatment on his channel.

    At last, parts 29 and 30 of Aurora are online. Might be stalling again at 31. -So a while back I read Scalzi's Redshirts and one of its internal self-criticisms, meaning a criticism of Trek, was how that particular ship saw more action than the rest of the fleet combined, which was statistically not-bloody-likely. Still, if I'm to tell an interesting story - and I do have Climactic Action Sequences in mind - what's exciting about a commercial ship hauling cargo and passengers back and forth? [shrug] It's a story. I'll write what I want. -Also, consider this particular ship - which really did see nearly all the action there was to be seen.

And across the Hudson, a bunch of people planting crops on land owned by NY City and leased by a private developer get all bent out of shape that the city tore out their squatter's garden (where they were apparently raising chickens as well) without letting them know. And now they plan on suing the city. Let's think about this. A person is told to remove his Cristmas display from his private property because some informer tattles on him to the government and his response is to shrug and roll over, saying he'll get a permit next year. In the other case, a bunch of people squatting on land owned by the city and leased by a private entity become outraged when that private entity tells them to take a hike, and want to sue the city and developer for evicting them from property they DO NOT OWN. In the mean time, nobody is outraged about the steady eroding of personal freedom that is in evidence in the first story. What's wrong here?

    "I also need to grouse about my son's school. While they don't have any zero tolerance policies, the indoctrination has started.

He said 'for pushing, shoving, fighting, playing guns, yelling during quiet time....' And a whole list of other routine nursery school infractions. I asked him about what playing guns meant (since they certainly have no toy guns in school) and he said that they give time out if you point and say bang or pew-pew-pew or anything like that.
