  1. Note in the painting above the blue flag on the right with an icon of Christ. To get picky here, the blue banner has one version of the Icon of the Protection of the Most Holy Theotokos. The large icon being carried is the Icon of Our Lady of Kazan (where the events in the above painting takes place). The icon on the banner of your troops: My 15mm Moscovy Militia battalion has a very similar flag with an icon of Christ. For some reason, the Moscovy's always fight above their lowly militia rating. appears to be the Icon Made Without Hands (also known as The Holy Napkin and The Icon of Edessa).
  2. You hit the ones I grew up with. I'll add, Santa Rosa Ave, in Santa Rosa CA. E. Cotati Ave. Cotati CA. Petaluma Blvd. Petaluma CA. Novato Blvd. Novato CA.
  3. Before Borodino: Still a common practice. (OK, these in the image below are Georgians, not Russians - don't be so picky) But it looks like the Moscow Patriarchate is looking at stopping the practice of blessing anything above the personal weapon level.
  4. Well, in the image in the OP the gun is black, has a scope, and a silencer, so it is obviously an assault rifle.
  5. Likely leftover from when he was a Boy Scout.
  6. Yes, Priests Air-Bombed a Russian City With Holy Water to Stop All the “Drinking” and “Fornication” How dare the writer call an Antonov An-2 "rickety!"

  8. In other words, other than being at a range, pretty much realistic conditions for a DGU - bad lights, fast shooting, and your Mk. 1 eyeball. When my wife worked at a LGS/indoor range I could sometimes use the range that was used mostly for police training and qualifications, and for one of the shooting clubs to do some IDPA type stuff. Since I was the only one on the range I could go in front of the usual firing line. I'd hang a target, turn my back on it, set a timer and spend the time blindly running the target forward and back so I didn't know how close it was. When the timer went off turn, draw and fire. Best I could do on my own. I found that I was usually point shooting. One time I found myself with the muzzle about an inch from the target.
  9. U.S Army W.T.F! momentsLike Page 3 hrs What ever comes out of this is going to make an epic safety briefing next weekend Obviously authorized by Col. Charles Foxtrot.
  10. Thank you for telling us this, and reaching out to your friends here, Doc. I offer this for Beth: O Almighty God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, we pray to You for Your servant Beth whose sickness is bringing her to the end of her earthly life. You are the God whose only-begotten Son taught us that not even the smallest sparrow can fall without Your knowledge, and that You hold all creation in Your merciful arms. Look upon Your servant Beth and allow this illness to be for the death only of those things which are the result of evil and sin. Let her thoughts be quieted with the peace and confidence of her final deliverance into the fullness of Your love. Keep her soul and body pure, and sanctify them during the time she remains among us, that on the last day she may be raised up with all Your saints to live with You in neverending glory. For to You belong praise and worship, to the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, now and ever, and unto ages of ages. Amen
  11. What a cutie! May you have a long, interesting, and loving relationship!
