    Local gun range closing permanently

    So I just learned today that the local range I've been going to for 12+ years is closing permanently on 2/14. Apparently whomever they lease the land from isn't going to renew their lease. Assholes. So, anybody here know of any decent ranges in Polk County, Florida, say within a half hour's drive of Lakeland? Doing a bit of research online I've found that there's a public range owned by Florida Fish & Wildlife. I've never been there, but the small bit of literature I've found online about it makes it seem OK. There's also a local gun store with an attached indoor range, but it's small(8 pistol lanes, 3 rifle lanes) and was expensive when I looked at prices a while back. My last option is joining the local gun club. They have what seems like a decent sized range, rifle, pistol, trap, five-stand, etc. But it's also somewhat expensive and you also have to come to events and help with maintenance work and such to be a member, not to mention you also have to have your membership approved by their board of directors and and be approved by a two-thirds majority vote of the membership. Seems like a lot of hoops to jump through just to shoot guns.

    Supposedly there is a movie in the works based on this book. Wikipedia says Peter Berg and Universal have teamed up. Filming is expected to start next year, with release expected in 2013. Hopefully they stay as true to the book as possible and don't inject any stupid shat that didn't happen.

    Tips for new security contracters.

    I picked this up from SOCNET. Tips for New Security Contractors.... Shave your head and grow facial hair. Bonus points for a scraggly Taliban beard. Lets’ face it, when Abdul is lining up that RPG with your vehicle, and he sees that bad assed beard, he will tremble in fear and put down his weapons. This is a proven fact. Also, it will help you blend in with the locals. Because all the locals are 6 foot 2, 250 pounds, speak English, and wear body armor. Buy Gucci kit. I know your company may issue you armor, but it’s probably crap. UN style blue vests are the corporate rage. Don’t go buy that crappy airsoft knockoff crap from China. Buy quality American made kit. Even if your company issues you good stuff, buy your own. It’s just cooler that way. Make sure to fit as many pouches and magazines on it as you can. Get molle pouches with molle on them so you can attach other molle pouches to them. The more the better. If you can’t fit in the door of your truck, cut the strap so the door opens wider. Can’t fit behind the wheel? Take out the seat and sit on ammo cans. That’s hard core. Get tattoos. I’m talking a lot of them. All over your arms and neck. Make sure they have skulls, tribal emblems, guns, Chinese characters, and barbed wire, in them. That makes them cool, which in turn makes you cool, and scary. Abdul sees that dark black ink all over you and shats his man jams. No way he’s going to fight that force. Huge crosses are always cool. Show everyone how devout of a Christian you are. Don’t put too much thought into the design, just pick something out of the book. Save that brainpower for the gym. Steroids. Eat that shat for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Don’t worry about piss tests. Get some pencil necked admin geek to piss for you. Twenty bucks is a ton of cash for those TCN’s and you know they are clean for steroids. Baseball cap. You need one and only one. Never change it or wash it. It needs to be sweat stained and covered with grime. Frayed edges and cool patches help. If you don’t have one, just grind a new one in the dirt for a while. Give it that “been there done that” look. The well gunner should be able to smell it when you’re driving. Morale patches. If you suck and can’t cover all the available Velcro on your kit with pouches, cover it with morale patches. There should be at least on offensive word on each one. Skulls, religious references, and brand name knock offs, are always popular. Nothing says “professional” like a “Hey fuzz Face” patch. Go to Thailand. Nothing says “I’m a winner” like paying a 16 year old for pussy. Better yet, get a Thai girlfriend. Support her, her husband, and her kids. Pay their rent and put braces on the crumb-snatchers. That way you always have a place to crash in country. Go to the gym. Every chance you get. Wear muscle shirts to show off your tribal tat covered guns. Grunt loudly so everyone knows how hard you are working. If it sounds like a porno, you’re doing it right. Stare at yourself in the mirror and check out that ass. Remember, when your boss sees how much effort you’re putting into the gym, you will definitely get that team lead position. Buy a new house. Your wife and her future husband need a good place to raise your kids. Make sure that the payments are at least 25% of your monthly paycheck. Buy a new car and motorcycle. Don’t pussy out and get a Corolla. Get an F-350 Supercab four wheel drive with the biggest Diesel they offer. Get a Harley. Anything but a Sportster will work. I don’t care if you never rode before, you need a Harley. Keep them in the garage of that McMansion that you bought so your wife’s boyfriend can borrow them. Spend all your money. You’ll get more in 28 days. Don’t save anything. It doesn’t matter that you have no retirement plan and social security will be non-existent when you are old. You can always start saving next year. This shat is tax free after all. Why should you save for tax payments? Buy an iPod. shat, buy three. You need one for the room, one for the gym, and one for the truck. How else are you going to jam to the greatest band in the world, Nickleback, while you are driving, lifting, and relaxing? b**** about the internet. It doesn’t matter that you are in some third world shathole, you have a right to be able to upload videos of yourself onto YouTube for everyone to see. Make sure to upload full videos of your daily movements. OPSEC is for pussies. Facebook picture. If it doesn’t show your rifle, your kit, your truck, and your guns, you are doing it wrong. Weapons accessories. fuzz policy, weapons were made to be altered. If there is open rail space, you fail. Bolt something to that. Buy a PEQ-4. It doesn’t matter if you don’t move at night, you still need it. Same goes with night vision. If you can’t afford the night vision, at least get the mount for your helmet. Vertical fore-grip is a must. Only losers use the hand guards. Plus, with all that shat bolted to the rails, you are going to need that vertical grip to hang on to. Weapon too heavy? Get your ass back to the gym. Knives. You need lots of them. You need the biggest freaking knife you can find to strap to your kit. Make Mick Dundee piss down his leg in fear. Get another one to tape to your thigh rig. You need at least one Benchmade auto knife to clip in your pocket. When talking to people, click it open and closed repeatedly. This will get your point across no matter what it is. If you’re man enough, stick a knife in your boot and another around your neck. Listen, you really can’t have too many knives. They’re like magazines in that respect. Cellphone. Like the internet, even though the citizens of the country you work in are still wiping their ass with small rocks, you need a cellphone that does everything. If you can’t check your email or surf porn while on venue, what good is it going outside the wire? If you can get a molle pouch to keep it on your kit, you get more bonus points. Bonus points are good for discounted pussy in Thailand. Military Chicks. Lure them into your vehicle with promises of alcohol and big cocks. The PX is the best place to find them. Bang them hard enough so everyone in your container complex knows what’s going on. Make them walk home.

    Wrong SEAL team, bud. SEAL team 6 was dissolved in 1987 and the Naval Special Warfare Development Group was established in its place. I bought this book when it first came out. One of the best I've ever read. Another one you might be interested in is this one. It's a bio on Lt. Michael Murphy, who was awarded the MOH for what he did during that mission.

    Haven't they been blaming their crime rate on guns from the US for a long time?

    Someone brought one of those in on Pawn Stars. Hopefully they will donate the guns to a museum, but I won't hold my breath.

    So....

    From what I've been told she doesn't want to treat it. My dad seems to think chemo and radiation would just kill her faster anyways, considering she wasn't in the best shape health-wise before they found the cancer. She could change her mind, but I doubt she will.

    So....

    It turns out my grandma has small-cell lung cancer. They haven't staged it yet, so we don't know if it has metastasized. *shrugs*

    For sale: One Team USA hockey 'Miracle on Ice' gold medal

    I like when they turn down what the pawn shop offers them. That makes them smart, IMO. If you walk in there with something you know is worth a bunch of money and take what they offer knowing it isn't what it is worth you deserve to get screwed. The one in Detroit is supposed to be really scripted.

    "Obama to award Medal of Honor to Vietnam-era airman"

    Obama is awarding the MOH live right now. Link
  14. I'm not into hockey at all, but this is really cool. Poke here
  15. An Air Force senior non-commissioned officer who was killed more than four decades ago will receive the nation's highest military recognition on Tuesday. According to the U.S. Department of Defense, President Barack Obama will posthumously award the Medal of Honor to Air Force Chief Master Sgt. Richard "Dick" Etchberger for "conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of life above and beyond the call of duty." In 1967, Etchberger volunteered for a mission at Lima Site 85, a clandestine radar post in Laos. There he maintained equipment that helped the U.S. bombing campaign in North Vietnam. But when North Vietnamese rangers overran the secret outpost in March 1968, 16 Americans lost their lives. In his book "One Day Too Long," author and Vietnam veteran Timothy Castle described the incident as "the largest single ground combat loss of U.S. Air Force personnel in the history of the Vietnam War." Etchberger, 35, displayed "immeasurable courage and uncommon valor" by single-handedly holding off the enemy with an M-16 rifle while directing air strikes and air rescue with his radio, the U.S. Air Force reported. Under heavy fire, he placed his wounded comrades into evacuation slings that hung from a rescue helicopter. Only after the others were on the hovering helicopter did Etchberger climb into a sling. He was being raised into the aircraft when enemy fire fatally wounded him. "I definitely wouldn't be here if it were not for Chief Master Sgt. Etchberger," John Daniel, a technical sergeant, told The Ocala Star-Banner. "If (Richard) hadn't gotten us out of there we would have ended up dead or POWs." Although Etchberger was posthumously awarded the Purple Heart and Air Force Cross in 1968, the sensitive nature of the mission, which occurred in then-neutral Laos, may have hindered efforts to have him nominated for the Medal of Honor. Today, a granite memorial in Hamburg, Pa., memorializes Etchberger's heroism. He will also be inducted into the Hall of Heroes at the Pentagon later this week. SOURCE :salute:
