  1. And once again we're seeing that mental illness was the problem. As for the "Silencer" we'll need to see some actual pics to confirm. Lots of faux-suppressors out there. Libs will want to ban anything that even looks like a suppressor. Especially if it's evil Black.
  2. The folks who actually lose in the market are the ones who don't diversify and panic when things drop. It ain't a thing amateurs and scairdycats should dabble in. The day-trading craze and get rich quick mentality have contributed to a less stable market in the past few years. Bottom line is, the Market always rises. Always. But not in the time you might want it to. Patience is king.
  3. My agency had numerous patrol boats and was responsible for natural resource protection and drug interdiction among other things. A lot of firearms won't reliably function under or when full of water due to the increased resistance to hammers caused by the denser medium to hammers and strikers.
  4. At least he's a real doctor....unlike DR. Phil.
  5. Gimme some beer and popcorn and I could watch gun camera footage of Jugs shooting up German trains and airfields all day!
  6. I saw Dr. Drew being interviewed the other day. Now I don't give a flip for Oprah's favorite celebrity doctor but he had some interesting observations. He was pretty pi**ed off. In his opinion the news media is in fact making this thing much worse. He blasted the irresponsible, alarmist reporting and mentioned the other health issues like influenza and many other serious, wide-spread diseases that are pretty much ignored by the MSM. And as we've seen in the past week, that irresponsible reporting has directly contributed to the biggest one day stock market drop in history.
  7. Just wait. One of his pistols had a suppressor.
  8. The jacket looks to be an army issued parka from the late 50s - 70s. I had a pair of Teva goggles in 68 that looked almost identical.
  9. Not sure I’d call those fads. Certainly emblematic of the 60s.
  10. He pretty much standardized Mandarin as the official language as I understand it.
  11. Sure. No problem with a detachable mag. But you would never go into combat with an empty chamber.
  12. As Mark stated, you can't do it with a fully loaded enbloc clip. You can't push the rounds down far enough for the bolt to clear. You need to take a round out. And why would you. The safety works fine.
  13. I went to the Salvador Dali Museum in St. Pete. Came out a little dizzy.
  14. Any scuba diver knows how easily sound and concussion will travel under water.
  15. Emergency auto defibrillators like officers and paramedics carry will absolutely not administer a shock if the heart is functioning normally. As far as the paddles they use in the OR, I don't know.
  16. And if they wrote anything critical about the government, they got tossed into prison. Hitler liked dogs, Mao taught everybody to speak mandarin, and Mussolini made the trains run on time. I guess they deserve praise too.
  17. "A person is smart. People are dumb, panicky dangerous animals and you know it." Agent K, Men in Black That being said I think this virus is posing a significant threat. More so than the Ebola scare of a few years back. The Communist countries in Asia are downplaying the size of the problem. Vietnam announced they had cured all of their patients two days ago. Interesting, in that there is no known cure yet. I wouldn't believe them if they told me the sun came up this morning. I hope researchers can get a handle on it quickly.
  18. My department put Glocks through a torture test before they were approved, involving among other things running over one with a patrol car, putting them in saltwater for a week, burying them In mud, and firing underwater. You definitely need real good hearing protection.
  19. It ain’t gettin any better. https://www.msn.com/en-us/sports/mlb/the-astros-george-springer-tried-to-silence-a-booing-crowd-whiffed-spectacularly/ar-BB10r8T4?li=BBnb7Kz&ocid=mailsignout
  20. The flat earthers can explain that away. When I worked for the park service we has a historic site on the Gulf Coast that used to be the Koreshan settlement back around the turn of the century. Their leader called himself The Koresh. They believed we lived inside the earth. Take a look at some of their ideas. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Koreshanity

  22. Interesting. Brings up an old memory, unfortunately. The day after an attack on our firebase near Cambodia in 1970 we were patrolling in the treeline after the NVA had retreated. They had hit us with a very sizeable force but triggered the attack prematurely early in the evening before all their units were in position. The result was a pretty big dang fight all night long. The 7th Cavalry nearly did a Little Big Horn again. About mid-mornng I came across two NVA soldiers sitting in a foxhole. Gave me a start at first till I realized they were dead. They were seated calmly with their weapons on their laps, facing our perimeter. Other than some dirt and debris on them there was not a mark on the bodies. I often wondered if they had been killed by the concussion of an exploding round from one of our 105mm guns that had been firing direct into the jungle. I guess that was the case.
