    The Armory is in mourning.

    I dont even know what to say. I have been out in AZ in the Army Senior Leaders Course and very busy. Things are finally winding down and I got an email about this today. I can remember getting into it with Jeff several times early on when I showed up. Nothing serious but just didn’t see eye to eye on much. Over the years we found much common ground. Jeff was one of the best people I knew about keeping subjects separate. He could be in a knock down drag out in one thread and use as happy go lucky in the next. I PM with him often and even spoke with him on the phone a few times. Funny how we all have a picture in our mind of what other members look like, while I dont ever remember seeing a picture of him here, I did picture him very much like the photos in the news reports. He was often a calm and reasoning voice in very passionate threads. He was one of the people that if I got down in the area I would have gone out of my way to meet him. The staff knows much of what happens behind the scenes and other members will not know the effort he put into this place. I pray that he and his wife are at peace in a better place. It sounds as if they may have passed in there sleep and hopefully with little pain. I hope by now the family has finished grieving and begun healing. Jeff will be missed greatly. This is a great little corner of the internet but we are not as complete as we were with Jeff. Jeff your wit, humor, and reason will be missed greatly by all that knew you. Fair skies and tail winds my brother.

    Really, I guess that is why it is still illegal. I said plenty, if you had 2 brain cells to rub together you would figure it out. But you are willfully ignorant and choose to remain so. Maybe you should put the pipe down, get a job and move out of your mommas basement.

    You dont have the slightest clue what freedom is, nor what freedoms are guaranteed to you by the USC. Your constant referral back to the AR15 as your argument makes you look stupid and simple minded. You are trying to compare apples and freight trains. You only have two freedoms in the United States. Stop believing in the progressive lies. You have countless liberties, but smoking dope ain't one of them. So you want to think you should have the “freedom” to do something as an individual, well guess what, if that were true, it also carries to the next level, groups of people also have freedoms as a group, that also carries to the next level to say societies have the same freedoms and society as a whole has the same freedoms. Under this doctrine society has used it freedom under the constrains of the law of the land to limit what you perceive as your individual freedom. Under your non existent “freedom” doctrine, freedoms exists at all levels and your argument still has no weight because society has the freedom to set forth its own rules for what it is to consider acceptable conduct. Smoking dope is outside of those rules. You don’t have the freedom to do 150 down the interstate, you don’t have the freedom when living in a neighborhood to blast music at 3 in the morning disturbing the neighbors. I am sure you have heard the saying your rights end where my nose begins. Freedoms are no different. There is freedom of the press, that does mean that a reporter can come into my house any time he wants. You have the freedom of religion but that doesn’t mean you can do human sacrifices.

    Progressives also believe we live in a democracy. They think that the Constitution should be null and void as it was written by a bunch of old white slave owners. You must somehow share that thought referring to it as an “arbitrary government dictate”? I would say you really need to educate yourself. What is sad is that the willful ignorant are happy with their condition and refuse to educate themselves.

    I have spent more than my fair share of time defending freedom and I can tell you that it wasn't so I could have pot in my kids school, or drunk drivers run my brother over in the middle of the night or folks getting baked and out on the road with my wife while she takes my kid to school. You would do well to research the difference between freedom and liberty. Other than press and religion you are not guaranteed any freedoms in the USC. Your liberties are subject to due process of law. The law has run due process and there is no liberty in the US to use marijuana. In your weak ass argument of AR-15s first we have that little thing called the 2nd Amendment to the USC. It specifically says that my right to keep and bear arms will not be infringed. To add my owning of a AR15 does not interfere with anybody else’s health or safety nor does it infringe on any other freedoms or liberties. You may not agree with the facts, but it doesn't change the facts.

    Help Finding a Decent Hunting Rifle

    Well if he can compromise on the wood stock I’d go with the TC Compass https://www.budsgunshop.com/catalog/mobile/product/3618/redirect And top it with a Vortex Diamondback Tactical 4-16. https://www.opticsplanet.com/s/vortex-diamondback-tactical-ffp?cat=21&_iv_cat=21 That’s roughly $700 so with a set of $50 rings he still has a little left over for a sling or a couple of boxes of ammo.

    9mm or 45.

    It’s all about user preference. I own 3 different 9mm all from different manufactuers, Glock, Bereetta, and Canik. Of the 3 the Canik has the highest capacity and is the easiest of the 3 to conceal. It also feels the best in my hands, points the best for me and has by far the best trigger. The Beretta is very large and difficult if not almost impossible to conceal. The controls are not user friendly. The Glock is just a damn Glock, either you like them or you dont. I dont. That damn funky grip angle. Yea I understand the science behind it but it dont work for me. On the other hand I have 3 1911s all in 45. I like the fit feel and point of the 1911. I am willing to give it the extra attention it needs to run reliably and I can run it in 45 as fast as any 9mm shooter I personally know. I’d like to have a 1911 in 9mm just to see if I could run it any faster. The 1911 (as a platform) is much easier to coneal even in the full size package. Because it feels, and points better it means I shoot it more. Because I shoot it more I am more accurate and faster with it than any of my 9mms so it is the handgun of choice for me. I reload so the difference is practice ammo is small enough that I really dont care. Really you are talking Chevys or Fords. If we are talking about the same platform just different calibers say a Glock in 9 or 45 or a 1911 in 9 or 45 go with what you know. Personally I have gotten pretty damn in tune with the recoil impulse of the 45 and enjoy it. For me its fast accurate and just feels better.

    Responding to your unedited post you are 100% wrong. I know folks now that dont smoke it because its illegal and there are repercussions for breaking the law. It’s called a deterrent and they work every day. Some are strong enough to change minds and some aren’t. Why do we pre-flight aircraft, beause we want to make sure it is airworthy beause if it isnt we could die. That’s a deterrent. Why do we not travel down the interstate at 150 MPH if our car can do it, beause if we get caught we might go to jail, again a deterrent. If the penility for shooting a dumbass in traffic was a $25 dollar ticket, I would have a monthly budget that would allow me to kill at least 5 a week but the penility is jail time and maybe even death. I know I dont want my pilot smoking dope, do you want your mechanic smoking it? Your approach is that we should just make it legal, freak it everybody does it anyway right? Well there are a lot of folks killing each other in Detroit, NYC, Chicago so should we just make that legal too? That really is punishing the innocent for the actions of the guilty. It is a fact that in CO and other states where the states have passed these laws that are in direct violation of federal law that use in MV accidents are up, use in schools are up, medical expenses are increased. That is a cost everybody pays. My approach is to punish those that think they are above the law and can do what ever the hell they want despite the cost.

    Yes I do as I think other people that are breaking laws should be in jail. Hell just 2 days ago I called the police on a driver I saw smoking pot while driving. Didn’t hesitate. Gave them her location, tag number accurate description of the car, where it was and what direction it was headed. They asked me how I knew she was smoking pot while driving? I told them I saw her twist it up when she got off the exit after crossing state lines (TN into KY) with it. In 2017 alone almost 11,000 people in the US died because of DUI according to the NHTSC. Do we really think that legalizing pot is going to make that situation better? Check the stats in CO, CA, NM and other states that have legalized it for either medical or recreational use. No prohibition is not cheap, but it is a much better option that watching a loved one die because some dumbass in violation of federal law wanted to get baked and get behind the wheel of a 2 ton weapon. Personally I think the 2nd time DUI should be life without parole and it should be no less for driving high. I think anybody caught selling pot should do time in a federal facility biting the pillow at night for bubba. 2nd offense should be a needle in the arm and that is for selling pot or any other illegal drug.
  11. Well lets look at exactally what title 27 says Being that a bump stock does not meet the definition as the trigger still only fires one per function of the trigger, they legally can not enforce it.

    Blackhorn 209 Question

    I am using 250 gr Shockwave SuperGlide with 56 grains (by weight) and getting about 1725 FPS. I want to be closer to the 2149 with the 84 grains by weight.

    Blackhorn 209 Question

    I swapped to Blackhorn 209 last year and run the powder through my RCBS dispenser combo and then pour them into the blackhorn speed tubes. While I noticed a bit of a difference in where the powder fell on the tubes markings I can tell that the very first weight I tried produced a sub MOA group at 100 yards. I didn’t even shoot the heavier loadings, just loaded up a bunch more for the season. This year I will spend a little more time with load workup so I have flatter shooting dope but I am very pleased with the combination of 209 and TC 200 grain shockwaves.

    Plate carrier setup

    This is why cops use belt keepers. Cheap enough to get and mounts the war belt rock solid to the regular pants belt. As far as the pile on the inside of teh belt, some of it is there for adjustment, but it is lined the entire length for a Velcro belt that can be worn though the belt loops. I ran one when I worked security and armored care. I want say it does a lot but it will keep it in place while attaching belt keepers.
  15. Good basic information but he left out one piece that some folks will need to account for, height over bore. If you are talking about absolute vs lower 1/3 cowitness the change of POI may be small enough not to worry about but if you are dealing with something a bit higher, say an RMR or T1 mounted on top of an ACOG it will make a major difference.
