RIFLEMAN'S JOURNAL - NOVEMBER 2015
The World Sucks
Enemy action in Arizona, with a proposal to take the "instant" out of "instant" background checks gun registration. The whole corrupt and tyrannical system should not exist.
Speaking of a corrupt and tyrannical system, connect the f***ing dots.
Not unrelated, for the elebenteenth time I say THERE'S NOTHING HOLDING IT UP. Get your "money" out of the banks and your wealth out of "money". Before that's outlawed too.

Show, chat & show every Sunday 1100 and 1700PT, wherein one of the Chatroom Elves links the true story of Josey Wales. I had not heard that.
BACON NEEDS NO EXCUSE
[thought=random] Is it possible to make a self-powered Gatling? Gas operation for example? I can't see why not. Gas port -> piston -> cam thingie. And isn't there already a dual AR with cross-linked gas systems? Probably wouldn't get the high cyclic of an electrically-driven model, gas only goes so fast, as would parts driven by gas pressure - theoretical reliability would also suffer because external power would extract and eject misfires, though that's extremely rare with modern factory ammunition. Hmm. Advantages vs. disadvantages; the original Gatling was, besides a higher and sustainable rate of fire, an attempt to solve the overheating problem of single-barrel designs. Would it be worth the effort to make a gas-operated Gatling? Would the gas system cause the heat buildup the Gatling is supposed to reduce? Would the cyclic rate have any advantage over existing single-barrel designs? Oh... never mind.
Remember, peasant, Obama will end the wars and bring the troops home and if you don't really believe that you must be racist.
In chat yesterday, one of the Elves noted flooding near his part of Texas, while another begged for it to alleviate drought in California, to which I sarcasm'd, "Breaking news: Obama signs Federal Rainfall Redistribution Act, deploys National Guard to arrest flood victims for hoarding." Later in Skype, blogbrother SMLE Fan observed, "You know they're over the top when you can't parody them."
And as if on cue, 'To disappear the [NINETEEN-YEAR] warming hiatus as ["global" "warming" "climate" "change" "scientist" TAX-EATING BUREAUCRAT Thomas R.] Karl and his co-authors purport to do, you have to repeal the laws of thermodynamics. (Not even the current president can do that.)'
In my fictional utopia I've made reference to a planet named Neues Deutchland. Why would anyone want to leave Old Germany to colonize a raw, new planet? Gosh, I couldn't imagine.
For further example, the next time someone uses the word "Islamophobia" in my presence I just might nail them into a crate and ship them to Saudi Arabia Nigeria Pakistan Iraq Detroit Syria Kenya Sudan "Palestine" Sweden Australia England Jordan Canada Gaza Germany Rome Denmark Seattle the border COLLEGE New York Iran the Netherlands Libya Armenia Minnesota Dubai Maine Norway.
Not unrelated, "It doesn't take much of an imagination to guess where the Obama administration would come down if two Christian truck drivers refused to transport abortifacients to the nearest Planned Parenthood clinic."
To which dot connect Massive Vote Fraud.
So several moons ago was that big disaster earthquake movie in which San Francisco more or less slid into the Pacific. Like that would be a bad thing.
Which segues to:
Their way. Not working.
Our way. Working. Think about the psychotic perverts who INSIST otherwise.
'Pelosi said she is "hopeful" and "optimistic" about Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) serving as speaker of the House.' And that's all I need to know about Paul Ryan. As for her slander, I rebut: "Timid men prefer the calm of despotism to the tempestuous sea of liberty." But the genocidal bigot control freaks don't like him either....
And the EBT-swiping Obama-voters really believe every lie they're told. While calling us liars.
And if you don't really believe Obama will end the wars and bring the troops home you must be racist.
Not unrelated, willful-ignorance-wise, "When this idea came up in our newsroom about campus administrators shredding the Constitution because it's a trigger against students, we didn't think people would actually fall for it.... We underestimated just how stupid and politically correct these people are."
DEMOGRAPHIC WARFARE AND MASSIVE VOTE FRAUD.
Col. Kratman's latest column examines Robert A. Heinlein's Starship Troopers. It's one of the first books I ever read on purpose, and I lost count of the rereads at four. There's a paperback copy within arm's reach as I type. The way I heard it, Heinlein fans boycotted the film and Ginny sued to get her husband's name taken off it. Some moons ago was word of a remake in the works.... Anyway the service-for-citizenship thing is a core component of my own fictional utopia, and "no one who hasn't contributed has a say in how things are run." But it's quite too late to implement here and now. It would have had to be done way back in 1787, and having just thrown off the Redcoats I doubt the people would have bought it. Now we have to wait until after the Collapse and put it in the Restoration. ...Which does appear to be what Heinlein did with his Future History....
How's that $15 minimum wage working out for you?
Obamacare will make everything better and if you don't really believe that you must be racist.
Remember, peasant, you're just paranoid if you think Obama would suspend the Constitution and implement Martial Law. And also racist.
No, really, Massive Vote Fraud. And also racist.
Timely Visual Aid.
Rebellion in Coos County, Oregon.
Resistance in Virginia.
Think about the kind of perverted monsters who would rather have this woman violated than allow her to defend herself.
Let me state it explicity. If guns are outlawed, we'll kill the cops and take theirs.
Icky plastic Glocks though they be.
"Treason against the United States shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort."
During the Second World War, the National Socialist forces wore belt buckles stamped with the words "Gott Mitt Uns".
To which dot connect, brainwashing children, with racism. And you thought the Bracken Trilogy was fiction. (Almost finished with the third one....)
Speaking of children, boob jobs for unionized government-school teachers, with your taxes.
In my fictional future history I stated, "140 JR/2097 CE - United Nations secretly begins releasing fertility-suppression agents to targeted populations worldwide." But that would never actually happen... RIGHT?
Blood Libel o' the Day. But they call us "racist".
While loudly and endlessly claiming to be "tolerant" and "inclusive".
Harvesting baby body parts WITH YOUR TAXES.
Also speaking of children, think about the kind of psychotic monsters who don't want your children to know basic safety procedures. Though I don't mind seeing anti-self-defense bigot Mark Kelly being eaten by his own.
To which dot connect anti-self-defense bigot wants to tax gunowners at government gunpoint. NO. I WILL KILL ALL YOU SEND OR DIE TRYING.
Remember, peasant, IT'S JUST A FEW BAD APPLES.
Oath Keepers movie free online tomorrow night.
Speaking of those who keep their oaths, Michael G. sends A Marine Love Story.
A sociopath is someone who can't tell right from wrong, who doesn't see other people as human beings. A psychopath is someone dissociated from reality, who genuinely believes things that are provably not true or disbelieves things that provably are. Our government is comprised of both.
For example, the Pointed Question o' the Day: "How incandescently stupid do you have to be to (a) ignore a century of the absolute failure of Communism-Socialism, and (b) still adhere to it?"
Speaking also of disbelieving things that are provably true, the next time someone uses the word "Islamophobia" in my presence I just might nail them into a crate and ship them to Saudi Arabia Nigeria Pakistan Iraq Detroit Syria Kenya Sudan "Palestine" Sweden Australia England Jordan Canada Gaza Germany Rome Denmark Seattle the border COLLEGE New York Iran the Netherlands Libya Armenia Minnesota Dubai Maine Norway. An obvious example of the Sudden Jihad Syndrome I was reminding you of just the other day.
I wonder what effect this will have on troop morale? But the psychotic sociopathic regime really believes these same troops will unquestioningly obey orders to turn their government-issued weapons on us.
Burn the government schools, Chapter MMMMDXXIII.
Headline says, "Florida: Unbelievable - 3 Democrats Against Stopping Gun Buys with Welfare Cards". My view is that, as usual, the busybodies have a firm grasp of the wrong end of the equation. In most states, as I understand it, the EBT cards can be used for cash, lots of it, from nearly any ATM. The whole system is inherently fraudulent and inviting of abuse. What was that about getting them to ask the wrong questions?
Potential SCOTUS action. Not Lighter because I'm not hopeful.
(Larry Correia's Son of the Black Sword shows protagonist Ashok Vadal as the very model of a True-Believer Jack-Booted Thug, in a rigid caste system where "everyone knows their place", and I've just reached the point where the jackboots are about to be pulled out from under him. Correia maybe oughta be nominated for a Prometheus Award. Since the Hugo is worthless now.... Except this award is specifically for SF, from the Libertarian Futurist Society, so a fantasy work wouldn't be eligible....)
(Unless, like Ringo's Council Wars series or even McCaffrey's Pern, it turns out to be SF in the end after all....)
It's not paranoia if the president's mentor really is openly talking about rounding us all up for imprisonment or execution.
To which dot connect "It's becoming a badge of honor among the right to be targeted by the Southern Poverty Law Center." Not Lighter News because they really are out to get me. I warned you about this years ago and I was right, again.
IMMIGRANTS! CONTRIBUTING! TO SOCIETY! Tell me more about the moral equivalence of different cultures.
Speaking of which, "Campus stabber's manifesto included 'praise for Allah,' plan for beheading". Gee it's a good thing none of his victims had a gun or someone might have been hurt!
And why, why do none of these worthless sheeple, in massacre after rendered-defenseless-by-"law" massacre, beat the monster to death with a chair or a fire extinguisher? Have we sunk so low?
"It doesn't matter how beautiful your theory is, it doesn't matter how smart you are. If it doesn't agree with experiment, it's wrong." A reasonable person has to seriously question the real purpose of all this anti-self-defense legislation... which question answers itself.
When I see a cop, any cop, I see a clear and present danger to public safety.
The invention of police is one of the most horrible mistakes in human history.
The "cure" is worse than the "disease".
POLICE SHOULD NOT EXIST.
Please burn the colleges. Before the infection spreads. Probably too late....
Not unrelated, years ago I made this cartoon illustrating my view of today's workforce. This one is also not racist if it's true.
And you know it is.
Show, chat & show every Sunday 1100 and 1700PT. Not there for the first show because
CMP Garands at Lone Oak. It's been months. ...Some debate over scoring rules. The way I've been doing it there for years, marking sighter shots separately on the scoresheet, I got 86 in slow prone, for a total of 246, but someone got the idea they were using convertible sighters, throwing out the worst five of fifteen, which would give me 92 for a total of 252 and 2nd place out of nine shooters. Hopefully that'll get sorted out on the CMP competition tracker. Anyway it was good to get some recoil therapy, can't afford much these days.
Then, I have to prep for the next match, the Allies vs. Axis WWII-theme, in which I'll use a scruffy-lookin' VZ24 with moderate handloads. Course of fire is 45 rounds plus sighters, meaning I'll need at least fifty and more would be better. I have exactly 45 left over from last time and that ain't enough. Last week, after work as I was still driving around and before I got back to the hovel and lost all steam, I detoured to the nearest Sportsman's Warehouse and grabbed the Very Last Box of Sierra #2400, the Chosen Bullet for this rifle. The day before that I hit Bi-Mart for a fresh pound of W748 (rifle powders in the W/IMR/H little-round-jug family-of-families are finally back in stock, but not other brands, and no handgun powders). Fortunately, years ago, back when I had gumption, I processed more than enough brass for a new batch; that box is near the top of the heaps; I found my RCBS hand-priming tool quickly; and I got a whole sleeve of 5,000 WLR primers in an estate sale a couple years back, which I haven't even had to open yet anyway. So there's a lot less work this time, consisting mainly of excavating the Lee Load Master my sister gave me several birthdays ago and then finding the correct die set (the Load Master has only the one shellplate, Lee #2, for .45ACP, the entire -08/'06 family, and most of the Mausers). As stated in my recent YouTube channel update, I'm pooped a lot, but now I have everything ready in the same place.
I really need a better range bag though.
Yet another Quisling Fudd.
Burn the taxtheft-funded government schools, Chapter MMMMDXXVI.
To which dot connect, "Are we creating a generation of mentally-ill, credentialed, physically mature children?" Yes. Evidently we have already done so and many of them have been "elected" to high office.
Remember the Thought Police in Orwell's 1984? That was just a story... RIGHT?
And that "FREEDOM IS SLAVERY" part also.
Which segues to: I have a decades-long friendship ending as a casualty of the culture war. I swear, there are people who really believe every gun show or NRA meeting is filled with Neo-Nazi Satanists sacrificing goats and trading child porn and plotting the next school shooting, and will not acknowledge the existence of incontrovertible evidence to the contrary. My side doesn't openly call for the roundup and extermination of people who disagree with them. But hey, anything, anything at all, to keep those EBT dollars flowing....
All the way to the end.
Speaking of Other People's Money being wasted, WoGged again.
IMMIGRANTS! CONTRIBUTING! TO SOCIETY! "Most modern, right-thinking Europeans would rather die beneath a Musselman's blade than admit, even to themselves, that their entire concept of human nature is incredibly wrong."
And the GOP wants to go faster over the demographic cliff.
Remember, peasant, IT CAN'T HAPPEN HERE!
AND THEIR "BROTHERS IN BLUE" RALLY TO THEIR DEFENSE.
F***. And Arizona's under attack by Bloomberg's billions now too. I might get there just in time to have to leave again.
"A state may not impose a charge for the enjoyment of a right granted by the federal constitution"OH. WAIT. And there are people who really believe NRA members are handing out free guns to gang members in the back alleys of Chicago.
And that all five million of us should be jailed or executed for it.
Enemy action in Wisconsin. Yes, Fudd, that includes Grandpa's Auto-5.
Demographic Warfare, Chapter MMMMDXXVII. Looking for a job? White Males Need Not Apply. It's not racist if it's true.
To which dot connect, Col. Kratman's latest column continues examining The Prophet Heinlein's Starship Troopers and the concept of service for citizenship. "In short, we think that we either, in [Berthold] Brecht's words, elect a new people, as our denationalized and corrupt rulers seem to be trying to do via immigration, or we fall hard - so hard we'll never stand again." Which appears to be somebody's intent.
Speaking of jobs, f*** the taxi companies and the FAA too. Get out of the way.
Burn the colleges-fatigue.... "They want a safe space, all right; one where they can threaten and abuse people, and act like the Red Guard, with no record being made of it."
Tell me again why police don't like being recorded by their victims...?
Old Media Visual Aid o' the Day. No, I'm not supporting Ben Carson, who says in plain terms that one's ZIP code determines what kind of guns one should be "allowed" to own, but MSM's blatant partisan bias can't be pointed out enough.
"Was walking into Walmart on 8th, two guys right ahead of me looked Jewish but weren't wearing their yellow badges. Mentioned it to the clerk, who started quoting the First Amendment and said that it was their God given right. I walked out."OH. WAIT.
Happy Birthday, Marine Corps.
Pushbutton safety for AR15. Hmm. If your receiver only has the two positions anyway.... And here I was thinking about one of the short-throw levers.
A John Moses Browning automatic rifle design I've never heard of. "Seems almost like he was trying to create an M1 Carbine before anyone even knew they wanted it."

Meanwhile at the Ministry of Truth, 'It is truly bizarre to exclude the states with the fewest gun deaths from an article about what states have "the fewest gun deaths."' Once in a great while I try to point out such lies to people who really believe them. They become violent....
"Live Free or Die"OH. WAIT.
My side isn't the one threatening to NUKE ENTIRE CITIES IF SOMEONE IN THEM DISAGREES WITH OUR POLICIES. And I know people who really believe that we're the "terrorists" who want to wipe out Certain Kinds of People.
To which contrast, The War on Terror, We're Doing It Wrong. "The western world's humanity has been used as a weapon against it for quite some time." Which is something I've touched upon.
FIFTEEN DOLLARS AN HOUR. I for one welcome our new robot servants. Used one at the supermarket just a few hours ago in fact, the Self Checkout. And there was no surly, lazy, incompetent racist, thinking it was entitled to something because of its skin color, hurling the groceries around like firewood and bruising the apples I paid real money for (yes that is a thing which actually happened and is another reason I hate going to the supermarket). Money which I earned. At work.
Prohibition FAIL o' the Day. "The trigger in this case is an absurdly simple arrangement consisting of a rectangle and square plate which pivot together." I see how that works, with an open bolt. Match-winning accuracy is not the goal.
On the other end of the spectrum, Historic Browning Pr0n.
Think about the horrible sick sociopaths who would rather have these innocent people violated or dead. Think about the kind of people who don't want you able to defend yourself.
"ROUNDS COMPLETE." One hundred of them, 7.92x57mm Mauser, for my VZ24, for the Allies vs. Axis match this weekend. Whew. I know I'm a procrastinator, feels good to have that accomplished.
I swear, if Old Media were presented with undeniable evidence of the close similarities, of Obama's policies & Hillary's proposals, to historical National Socialism, they'd start running revisionist puff-pieces on Hitler. I mean for f***'s sake they actually did point out how Osama bin Laden built roads and schools. But the EBT-swiping Obama-voters really believe that we're the ones who are lying.
"The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated"OH. WAIT.
Jew fired from job for meeting Jewish friend at workOH. WAIT.

Larry Correia, whose latest book I am well and truly sucked into, has a lousy day in traffic but another really good day at "work". "[Monster Hunter:] Nemesis was pay off the mortgage twenty five years early numbers." He even got a cunning hat.
"...[N]ever mind that the states with the 'weak gun laws' never seem to rack up the unceasing 'gun violence' headlines, that is, except for in islands of Democrat rule."
Seriously. Please. Burn the colleges.
BUT THEY CALL US "RACIST".
The Prophet Heinlein wrote about the Crazy Years. And that's why I call him a Prophet.
Gee, it's a good thing France has gun control, or someone might have been hurt! And we don't dare identify the attackers perpetrators misunderstood agrarian reformers because that would be raaaaacist!
And the regime wants us to be just like them.
Genocide is not hyperbole.
And there are people who want it to happen here.
[thought=notreallyrandom] You ever notice how the people calling NRA members pedophiles and whatnot are the same people who want to lower the age of consent to 12?
Action to reduce suppressor restrictions. Click yer f***in' mouse, you're already on all those lists. Seems to me, this would also decriminalize making your own suppressors, under the same standards as, for example, an 80% receiver.

Another potential breakthrough in desalination. From comments: "I predict the enviros will oppose this if it works, because cheap plentiful water would encourage agriculture, which they don't like. I wonder how this new process would be for cleaning a river, the next time the EPA turns one bright orange? (Something the enviros didn't seem to mind)."
A while back I wrote about "hopping a semi-ballistic to the antipodes". I got the idea, of course, from The Prophet Heinlein. Airbus is working on it.

Allies vs. Axis WWII-theme highpower rifle match at Clark Rifles. Dusted off my VZ24, whipped out some handloads. Course of fire:
Unlimited sighters at 100 and 200 yards in 5 minutes. Light was horrible, though I finally have a spotting scope that sucks less.
My 100-yard sighters, which I could just barely see at 60x, due to a) big fat 8mm bullets making noticeably larger holes than the usual .30 and b) maybe a bit of hydrostatic shock on the wet targets:
200-yard, which I couldn't see at all and only had time for three of, guessing the number of elevation clicks on the Mojo rear sight:
On full-size B27 target at 200 yards, 10 rounds in 3 minutes, standing. Yeah that sucked, half the string outside the scoring rings and one of those off the right side of the paper (but safely into an expensively over-engineered backstop):
But that still wasn't the lowest score for that stage. Next, on reduced-size B27 at 100 yards, 10 rounds in 3 minutes, standing. These were better:
On reduced-size B27 at 100 yards, 10 rounds in 60 seconds, on bench over sandbags, one mandatory reload. The VZ24 is only cosmetically different from a K98, and the '98 Mauser is the Best Bolt-Action Rifle Ever, not least due to its instant-international-standard stripper clip system. (Yes, I still intend to make a tutorial video on the '98. I have to learn to use a Linux video editor first.)
On bench over sandbags, five rounds on each of three previous targets at both distances, in 100 seconds total. One extra round allowed on last target, worst of six discarded, which I didn't bother with, that was for the convenience of the eight-shot Garands. I started at 200, again guessing the elevation, then cranked down to my 100-yard zero, which wasn't really, so I went up another guessed number of clicks from there and engaged the side-by-side 100-yard targets. And I should have left the windage alone from last year.
And yet, for all that - and on the technicality of me being the only participant to bring a bayonet and use it for the bonus points traditional to this match - I won first place, getting my $10 match fee back plus $5 prize money.
So today didn't suck.
Then I stopped at the $how, $igh, and blew twenty bucks on a new-in-bag Magpul PMAG40. Because forty. I also have a pair of steel Charles Daly-marked STANAG-style 40s which I haven't had occasion to use, much preferring the PMAG. With the car blowing up and the 'puter blowing up and millions on welfare depending on my taxes to fund bureaucrats' SUVs & condominiums and big ugly rusty bird-poop-attracting "public" sculptures in places no one ever goes, I had to skip the last couple 3-Gun matches, $igh. And I still haven't acquired that Very Particular Gas Block to make Precious just right.
Let me get this straight. Syrian "refugees" turn out to be Islamic terrorists who murder innocent people in the country that opened its gates to them and the GOP establishment wants more of the exact same people to come here.
And they still really believe it's all, somehow, my fault.
And for how many years now have I been telling you to get out of the cities?

Think about the sick psychopaths who insist this never happens.
In case you missed it: "On Thursday, President Barack Obama declared in an interview that ISIS had been 'contained,' asserting that the terror cell had been stalled in Iraq and Syria. The next day, ISIS claimed responsibility for one of the worst terror attacks in European history...."
And they really want the same thing to happen here. "The best way to stop a mass shooter is an immediate violent response" AND ANY COP WHO EVER ENFORCED ANY "LAW" AGAINST THE OWNING OR CARRYING OF WEAPONS IS AN ACCESSORY TO MASSACRE.
And they really want the same thing to happen here. "The best way to stop a mass shooter is an immediate violent response" AND ANY COP WHO EVER ENFORCED ANY "LAW" AGAINST THE OWNING OR CARRYING OF WEAPONS IS AN ACCESSORY TO MASSACRE.
...Yeah take the time to read the whole thing from Correia. "When people are being mass butchered, barring tossing hand grenades at the bad guy, it is pretty damned hard to make it worse." And, "Because if you think things suck now, just wait until the house of Saud collapses, and the same militant asshole extremist JV team that we've contained so well rolls in there. But don't worry, before that we've got a nuclear deal with Iran that will surely result in Peace in Our Time." With, "The security apparatus will then go back to being an ever tightening ratchet against the wrong people." And much more, including the comments. Everything really is getting worse all the time. And I'm still $tuck in a Blue State that wants me en$laved and/or dead.
You want to talk about acts of war? Project Gunwalker.
But the psychotic genocidal bigots really believe it's all, somehow, my fault.
And the illiterate infants-in-adult-bodies murderers-by-proxy keep proving that's not hyperbole.
In my fictional future history the United Nations evolves into the Terran Empire, whose official language is French. Along the way, Paris was destroyed by Islamists with a presumably-Soviet-surplus one-megaton weapon and the UN ordered the Eradication of Islam in retaliation. Seems legit.
Speaking of future history, I predict just such an attack here in America at a shopping mall full of Black Friday shoppers. Committed by the "refugees" being invited in by the Usurper and the GOP Establishment. And their suicide-bomb-splattered remains will be found to include EBT cards, not that we'll be told about that. Please prove me wrong. I know where I won't be on the 27th.... ...Which nightmare scenario is also mentioned in comments at Correia's link. Thought exercise for the reader: Some malls have more exits than others. How big a team would you need to block all of them, one way or another, like bombing the escalators to the lower level for example? Oh but now I'm a "terrorist" for warning against it?

Finished Correia's Son of the Black Sword. As good as expected. Correia has enough experience and success as a writer that he can be expected to pull off an Epic Fantasy Seriestm, unlike the overly-cluttered War Gods series from David Weber, which I gave up on along with his Safehold epic space opera. In Correia's books, stuff happens, without three pages of internal dialogue between every swing of a sword. Trying to finish off McGrath's Give Me a Fast Ship before beginning Mission: Tomorrow, a futurist collection edited by Bryan Thomas Schmidt - saw it in a Baen e-newsletter and the library had it. Featuring entries from Certified Libertarianstm Michael Flynn (Fallen Angels, the Firestar saga) and Sarah Hoyt (Darkship series, etc).
Astute Observation o' the Day. What effect will this have on troop morale?
"Most leftists seem to care more about shutting you up than actually arguing a point." Wastes of bandwidth. They're going to try to exterminate us, like their kind always does, and we're going to have to kill them in self-defense. And the "tolerant", "inclusive", "reasonable" ones really believe they're not doing anything wrong.
This Just In: Australia Still Sucks.
Idaho is slipping down on the relocation list.
THIS DID NOT SUCK
Reader sends a possibility for the Very Particular Gas Block. Very close, with a QD sling swivel hole instead of a conventional swivel, but I think those are nearly standard now - if they are, Magpul offers attachments, and the Fixed Carbine Stock will accept sockets for the other end. Problem is, this gas block is not drilled for the pins. Precious has a 16" barrel with a mid-length gas system, and came with the ordinary triangular front sight base, pinned, which I removed and replaced with a Yankee Hill model, which unfortunately wasn't receiver-height, so I had to use a riser, and it looks funny. Anyway the holes in the barrel, for the pins, which I kept of course, are an international standard, right? Why not just drill these to that standard during manufacture? 'Cause if that had been done I'd be clicking "Add to Cart" right now. Also, Precious uses a nosecap for conventional handguards, and that may be a dimensional issue with this product, scrolling down through the fine print. I found another option several moons ago, but that one's not pinned and lacks sling attachments altogether. Hmm.
Just the other day I said "I swear, if Old Media were presented with undeniable evidence of the close similarities, of Obama's policies & Hillary's proposals, to historical National Socialism, they'd start running revisionist puff-pieces on Hitler" AND THERE THEY GO.
Reminder: The Mayflower pilgrims were communists and nearly starved to death because of it.
Michael G. sends the Government Making Everything Worse Forever o' the Day, in Canada. The rulers won't miss any meals due to rising food costs, nor will their enforcers, for as long as they're useful....

$igh. Blew $53, on two still-sealed pounds of W748, $20 each, and a big RCBS tumbling media separator, which will help a lot with my next Big Batch, only $10, and a Lee case length gauge for my trim station, 7.92x57mm, $3. Found some pr0n - these first four images are from one engraver, of a Winchester Model 63:
These two were from another table - my eye was caught by the shield-shaped engraving around the bolt-stop notches:
It's not paranoia if they really are using Soviet-style punitive psychology. "And if they can do that to him, who's next?"
Michael G. sends the "tolerant", "inclusive" emerging rape capitol of the world where Sweden used to be. Tell me more about the moral equivalence of different cultures.
And the usurper wants us to be just like them.
Blood Libel o' the Day from North Carolina. I'm reminded, again, of that bit in Fallen Angels where the TV reporter was warning the sheeple that the fallen fugitive astronauts were super-strong, while showing an image of one moving something in freefall. Most TV reporters aren't even sentient human beings anymore, just wind-up meat-mannequins who spew whatever the teleprompter says without a thought.
Not unrelated, Der Ewige Jude, 2015 edition.
Burn the colleges-fatigue....
AR15 racing triggers approach the hundred-dollar barrier. I might have to get Precious one of those for Christmas. She's presently wearing an ALG mil-spec, which is a meaningful improvement over the usual LPK junk, crisp, but heavy, and with a way-too-long reset.
Aaaaand I'm typing sideways with a fluffy soft kitteh in my lap and that's going to give me back pain later.
The No-Fly List. Michael G. sends, "Fans of mindless authoritarianism are having a pretty good month", while on the other hand, "MSNBC's 'No-Fly List Is Islamophobia' Poster Boy Arrested in Turkey as Part of ISIS Cell", and we can't even say the enemy's name. As Larry Correia said some days ago, "The security apparatus will then go back to being an ever tightening ratchet against the wrong people."
Not that I have any intention of flying commercial until I see TSA agents being prosecuted, jailed, and/or hung-from-streetlights-until-their-corpses-rot.
And. As if. On cue.
Also as if on cue, more enemy action in Occupied Connecticut... but with the silver lining of giving Trump an opportunity to implode so Cruz can scoop up his supporters.
Speaking of Kafka-esque backwards-and-upside-down nonsensery, you've heard the LifeLock ads on the Rush Limbaugh show and seen them in American Rifleman, right? "A Gilbert woman says her ex-husband used LifeLock's credit-monitoring systems to create an account in her name and secretly track her every financial move since their separation two years ago." And who among my readers is naive enough to think the government doesn't have backdoors built into the system? To "track" "terrorists" and "suspicious" financial transactions? LifeLock sez "There's often little a company can do to stop someone who is intent on causing harm using the personal information of a partner...." ISN'T THAT YOUR ACTUAL F***ING MISSION STATEMENT?
Speaking of Islam and the dissolution of civilization, Col. Kratman's latest column examines these very topics. ...And launches debate in comments as to whether the Second Amendment applies to nuclear weapons. It does in my world....
Meanwhile in Texas-of-all-places, "...[A]t a hearing before the Ethics Commission, the director of enforcement John Moore (who is one of the participants in the secret listserve) told the eight commissioners to essentially ignore the issue of whether what they were doing was 'constitutional or not.'" Read through to see the infection spreading to Vermont.
Hey, remember that quota-hired fire"fighter" in New York who couldn't pass the physical? Your Tax Dollars At Work, baby. At government gunpoint.
Prepare.... I remind you that TracFone still has $15 phones and you don't have to give your personal information when activating them.
To a tyrant, everyone looks like a terrorist... except, evidently, an actual terrorist.
Finally finished Tim McGrath's Give Me a Fast Ship, and again my agnosticism is shaken by documentary evidence that God Himself reached down His hand to shelter the fledgling United States of America. On paper, we never woulda made it. Beginning Mission: Tomorrow, a post-NA$A futurist collection from Baen.
Speaking of NA$A, a thousand competitors to put them completely out of business, FASTER PLEASE.
Okeh, so, I've done a handful of small, local, backwoods-dirt-track-equivalent 3-Gun matches, and one thing I've really noticed is, my AR15 needs a better trigger. Precious has the $45 ALG mil-spec, and that's decent, but not good enough for racing, particularly with the long reset. Just the other day came a new offering for (barely) under one hundred dollars. I went to the manufacturer's site and it wanted to add Oklahoma sales tax. No.... Comes now another report on the same product, referencing several vendors who stock the thing, and with some digging I found one place offering it for a few bucks less than the manufacturer and with free shipping. Naturally I'm posting the link after I ordered my own. That's a lot of money for a guy like me but it's Christmas dammit. Got shipping confirmation email just a couple hours later.

Blood Libel o' the Day and I know people who really believe it.
Aaaaand burn the colleges, where such people are manufactured.
Speaking of brainwashing, continuing enemy action in Nevada.
And everywhere else. They will never stop. They will have to be stopped. All WE ever wanted was to be LEFT ALONE.
So I'm reading Mission: Tomorrow and the first couple entries in the collection give a vibe of "Ohhh, poooor Naaaasa, if ooooonly we'd given them mooooore of our taaaaaxes" NO. F*** YOU. GET OUT OF THE WAY. IF IT WEREN'T FOR F***ING NA$A WE'D HAVE HOTEL-CASINO-RESORTS ON MARS BY NOW. "I follow a fair number of astronomers and planetary scientists on Twitter and they share [Neil DeGrasse Tyson]'s unwavering belief that spaceflight, particularly human spaceflight, is the purview of NASA and NASA alone." With more such in the comment thread.
Prohibition FAIL, Chapter MMMMDXLII. And there's always another way.

$igh, Black Friday sales all over the gunternet and I've already blown more than I should have on that hopefully-race-quality trigger for Precious. :( To say nothing of:
SWEDEN. AGAIN. AND THE USURPER WANTS US TO BE JUST LIKE THEM. I TOLD YOU SO.
Codrea reposts his traditional Thanksgiving essay.
"In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right... to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the Assistance of Counsel for his defence"NOPE THAT ONE'S GONE TOO

Cryogenic suspension is a common trope in science fiction, and one I've used in my own work. Working on it.
As for that Thanksgiving dinner-table brainwashing "conversation", Michael G. sends a bit of "global" "warming" satirical fiction from Orson Scott Card. "...[W]hen you're in the devil's pay, it's best not to contradict the devil's dogma."
From Skype last night:
[4:18:48 PM] Jeffersonian: Watching the first episode of The Expanse
[4:19:15 PM] Jeffersonian: Aaaaand SyFy has done it again, blown an opportunity by making the science soft and squishy.
[4:19:54 PM] Jeffersonian: Six minutes in, it's some commie agitator going on about how the wealth of Ceres (water) has been stolen by Earth and Mars
[4:20:12 PM] SMLE Fan: 1) With a name like SyFy, what do you expect?
[4:20:54 PM] SMLE Fan: 2) plus all that pesky science stuff interferes with the real message: eee-vil white heterosexual men r baaaad
[4:21:01 PM] Jeffersonian: Three minutes in, after making a Big Deal of some character being in freefall, they show Benghazi-esque blood streaks on interior walls... with several drops streaking straight "down" under weight that they JUST ESTABLISHED ISN'T THERE.
[4:21:31 PM] SMLE Fan: science is the tool of the Patriarchy
[4:21:39 PM] Jeffersonian: Now there are crowd scenes inside Ceres, which according to Wiki has an estimated surface gravity of ZERO POINT ZERO TWO NINE TERRAN
[4:22:23 PM] SMLE Fan: there you go again, Moriarity, with your heteronormative facts
[4:22:39 PM] Jeffersonian: Shouldn't there be a "cis" in there somewhere?
[4:22:53 PM] SMLE Fan: I'm saving it :)
[4:23:19 PM] Jeffersonian: Aaaaand it's also a cop show.
[4:23:24 PM] Jeffersonian: DELETE
[4:23:39 PM] SMLE Fan: AMF!!
And then I got out of bed and went back to work.
Blogbrother SMLE Fan observes legal framework for property rights in space. Because that does matter.
Speaking of the glorious world of tomorrow, scienty-fictiony rejuvenation. Working on it.
Having broken clutch cables in two previous cars (or was it three?) and seen it happen in another, I ordered a spare for this car which I will carry in the trunk.
I should not have typed that out loud. I'll be murdered in a wrong-address prohibition raid in 3, 2, 1....
This is how a society commits suicide.
Even a New York newspaper is saying "In truth, the Obama administration is more concerned with cutting care than preventing cancer deaths." Next time you see an "I [heart] Obamacare" bumper sticker, know that its owner is not just a thieving parasite but also a genocidal bigot. Not that The New York Post's institutional hands are clean. They asked for it. We warned everybody this would happen and they called us "racist".
People who advocate socialism should be forced to live under it.
Speaking of bigotry, now they're claiming the Constitution causes mental illness. Trying to follow what these psychopaths use for logic will destroy brain cells, I know that much....
The camp guards at Auschwitz and Treblinka and Sobibor thought they were the guardians of civilization too. The Gestapo and Stasi thought they were protecting something.
Growing new teeth in your own mouth. Working on it. Faster please.
ONE OF THEIRS.
NOT ONE OF OURS.
The next time someone uses the word "Islamophobia" in my presence I just might nail them into a crate and ship them to Saudi Arabia Nigeria Pakistan Iraq Detroit Syria Kenya Sudan "Palestine" Sweden Australia England Jordan Canada Gaza Germany again, which appears to be racing with Sweden for the title of rape capitol of the world. It's not like they weren't warned.
"...[M]illions of middle-class people employed by the state to look after millions of poor people" with taxes stolen from the working class at government gunpoint. I've been telling you for years, THERE'S NOTHING HOLDING IT UP.
Speaking of nothing holding it up, Don't Go to College, Chapter MMMMDXLVI.
"Global" "Warming" MY ASS
Here's more on the space property rights precedent SMLE Fan noted the other day.
Adding Texas State Rifle Association to the front and links pages.
Pre-Luger pr0n. I've encountered a couple of these at the big yearly museum-quality show.
Burn the colleges, where fresh young minds are crippled for life. And placed in soul-crushing debt.
And here are more anecdotes from the collapse of civilization. Rape gangs in Norway and Sweden, murder gangs with badges in Chicago, and at best, executive psychosis, but more likely deliberate treason.
And that last bit is not hyperbole. The State is at war with the People.
MASSIVE RACIST VOTE FRAUD AND THEY PROBABLY ALL HAVE EBT CARDS TOO.
It will all come crashing down....
Think about the horrible psychotic bigots who don't want you able to defend yourself.
In Maine, which recently got Constitutional Carry by the way, an attempt to combat welfare fraud.
OMG SO TACTICAL
Mission: Tomorrow is proving a mixed bag, with entries by authors lamenting the lack of tax dollars wasted by NA$A, at least one anti-capitalist screed, and yet Prometheus-winners like Flynn and Hoyt. There are bits of sense-of-wonder, and at least this crowd doesn't completely bork the science like SyFy for example.
Speaking of books, this almost makes me want to fill out a Form 4473 again. ...Almost.
Today I had opportunity to try the Ruger drop-in AR trigger. Not bad, two-stage; the first seemed a bit mushy until you realize it is a two-stage. The second was good enough, perhaps better than the $45 ALG mil-spec Precious has now, but the deal-killer was the reset, which was about as long. Today, however, I received the racing trigger I ordered. As advertised. Simple installation (well, tip, install the trigger group without pins, then the safety selector, then the trigger group pins), lighter and crisper than the ALG, with a short reset at long last.
Ala$, it could be month$ before I can go to another match....
