    Military Thread

    USAF Security Police, 1974-86, SAC Nuke-Puke, MAC, NKP-Thailand, too many TDYs to Thule, Lakenheath, Ramstein and Embassy flights. Good times except for the several "congressional junkets" with the "elite", sometimes throwing someone out over a large body of water is entirely justified. (rhetorically speaking of course)

    It certainly didn't take her long

    Senator Feinstein has LONG held a coveted California concealed weapons permit, that she got from her San Francisco Police Chief, whom she first hired when she was then Mayor of SF. Unfortunately, she doesn't "think" normal people in her city or state deserve the same rights she demands for herself. As a US Senator and as Mayor, she had full time law enforcement protective details' the average citizen cannot have. how, she and her extremely wealthy husband live full time in Napa County, while "maintaining" a "residence" in San Francisco. Feinstein, is and always has been one of the privileged elites that so many of her supporters rail against. She is just another Washington phony.
  4. There are NO coincidences, therefore, no need to draw our own conclusions. It's about damn time!
  5. While not trying to steer the intent away from the warning, I do wonder, if this "war game" has anything to do with the anarchists' actions in Portland and Seattle metro areas of late? Seems that if those raggies were to start up again, regional chaos could in sue, if, the ports and transportation hubs were blockaded by these lice.
  6. I have a "natural" yarmulke, that seems to be getting concentrically larger each year. When it finally takes over, I shall sport a brass ear ring, and go Mr. Clean, and perhaps grow my beard back.(well trimmed of course) At least my face shall be warm in the winter and protected from aging sun in the summer.

    Camping in Oct

    My son and I have been taking the grandsons out camping.As a boy, our son HATED camping, now he likes it-he does insist that HIS sons learn to start fires without matches, using homemade fire starters, and other tinder we've put in the waterproof "tinder box". The four year old likes to try, so fa he has managed to get some good sparks, the 10, 8 and 6 year old have done flint and steel as well as magnesium shavings with flint and steel. Little pyros like to "practice" in their back yard as well. They "think" it's fun, I call it lifesaving.

    Looking to Pick up a .308

    I have fired the Vepr pictured ( a friend has one) and I liked it a LOT. Extra mags seem to be a bit dodgy on price variances and availability. Also have fire an AR-10, liked that one a lot as well. Sorry, I am no help! I do like the vepr price point though, can buy a lot of extra ammo in the savings.

    Rifles for the apoyclypse

    I travel a lot now for work. So, I am assuming at some point in time, we will be in a metro-suburban area, when things turn to schumer. I also spend a lot of time in my home state of California, so, if I take what we normally carry on trips, I become an instant felon, the minute I hit the state line. That is not appealing to me. So, in general, I usually have a Mini-14 with both 10 and 20 round mags, the 20s, go in a lock box for the duration of our California stay. I have six plus 10 round mags for each Glock 9mm we have with us, plus some others in the lock box.(just in case things get really interesting. I also make sure we have a 12 guage with us and plenty of ammo for all calibers, cleaning kits in the "Go Box", which goes with us every time we travel in a vehicle. I am hoping it will be "enough" to see us home. If not, we have places and people we can hunker down with, until things get a bit more stable. I do believe most of what passes for "zombies" will most likely never make it out of their urban lairs.

    Interesting Article

    Having spent some time in soCalifornia law enforcement-before finally getting smart, FEW agencies can afford a full time swat or srt team. It is far better I believe, to have multiple officers/deputies assigned to patrol duties, in a county-wide area, cross trained as SWAT or SRT members. That way, you always have a platoon or squad available, SHOULD the need arise. I am in favor of having a number of patrol officers cross-trained innSRT/SWAT tactics, so that they could be first responders to barricaded/hostage situations. Armored up I believe make good sense for HIGH risk warrant service and other situations like active shooters. I am not in favor of law enforcement being kitted put in paramilitary uniforms and fadt-mover gear. I've not seen that it is TRULY necessary in most applications and areas. Tacti-Cool, it may well be, but knowing the ground you fight on, is a whole lot better.(speaking for smaller less densely populated areas) Just my highly subjective opinion is all. I am now a "has-been" so what DO I know anyway?

    Glock or Smith & Wesson M&P

    Scout start saving up for YOURS now! Kiss the one YOU just bought goodbye. After almost 35 years of marriage come December, if MOM likes it, it is NO longer yours!
  13. In our state, we are allows to own and posses silencers. One day recently, my wife "suggested" we invest in a suppressor for our .22 pistols as well as picking up a suppressed 10-22, since we already have a number of "normal ones. I KNEW that marrying that girl would come in handy! Of course we have some relatively powerful air rifles as well, and spend a lot of family time in air shoots off the deck for points.(even the grand kids love it)

    Help finding an AR

    LOOK at the dpms line. They should be well under $2K , at least in my neck of the woods. Try gun broker dot com, gunsamerica do com, and for starters. Also check your local want ads like in a Penny saver type of publication. The deals are out there.

    Dutch Ovens

    We use Dutch ovens a lot, winter and summer. Winter takes a bit longer is all in our climate.(no.Utah) I have been trying to perfect my desserts, but everyone eats them too fast. I do like roasting brisket, pork loin, turkey breast(bone in), as well as roasts and chicken. I tried making spaghetti once on a boy scout outing, came put more like glutinous "something", but it did taste like spaghetti. Have finally (I think) perfected using skillets and cast iron gills on wood coals, takes some doing, and it AIN'T like charcoal!(learned the hard way several times) Have been teaching the grand kids some "how to" using cast iron, the oldest two (10 8) are getting pretty good. I also never "thought" using cast iron was "survival" cooking. Then again, someone once told me, "going camping is practicing to be homeless". Pretty much...
