    It was an interesting thought, but when I skimmed through it and saw him make a math error of 0.9%, I decided he was too unscientific to take seriously.

     

    One kilogram is NOT equal to two pounds.

     

    You forgot to add a Harrumph! :lol:

    "The Journal-Sentinel reported that Ferrill was armed with two guns, one with a silencer."

    And once again we're seeing that mental illness was the problem.

    Ferrill had also told a co-worker that he believed brewery employees were coming into his home and bugging his computer.

     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.

    I'm waiting patiently to back up the truck and load up on more of my favored investments.
    We have not yet hit bottom, and will vacillate at the bottom for awhile.
    Buy the saber rattling, and sell the peace treaties.

    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.

    Who had that (not so) bright idea?

    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.

    Dr. Drew has been on Fox a lot and he's contemplating running against Schiff in L.A. He's pretty conservative and he's also pretty pi%$ed off about the homeless situation. I liked his take on the corona virus, he's a good guy. He's also been on Greg Gutfeld's show a few times. He's no liberal!

    At least he's a real doctor....unlike DR. Phil. :D

  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.

    Demonstrations

    Communes

    riots

    burning .... bras, draft cards, flags

    End of segregation 

    color tv

    Spread of franchised fast food joints

     

    Not sure I’d call those fads.

    Certainly emblematic of the 60s.

    Don't see why it would be. Up into the 60s, and maybe even later, all submachine guns were open bolt. Thompson is, MP40 is, Uzi is. No more dangerous than any other gun - keep your finger off the trigger until you're ready to shoot.

     

    Let the bolt go forward on an empty chamber, then insert a magazine. Now you have a loaded magazine and an empty chamber. Simple.

    Sure. No problem with a detachable mag. But you would never go into combat with an empty chamber.

    Thanks Joe....awesome pics. ;)

    Can't get my cellphone to take that great a picture, but then, it didn't cost a billion dollars. :o

    Looking at the images, Salvador Dali comes to mind......

    I went to the Salvador Dali Museum in St. Pete. Came out a little dizzy. ;)

    So the subjects could read the lying government's propaganda! 

    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. :rolleyes:

    I don't know if it's the media frenzy is falsely out of control or facts about this is true but it's making people panic about just 59 confirmed cases in the US.

    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.

    Am I the only doofus wondering why my brethren have experience firing 44 mags under water or 357s inside a truck?

    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.

    Not so sure about that. If you go out on the open sea and have something level on the ship to compare the horizon, you can see a slight curvature on the sea. Been on quite a few cruise ships. It's there if you look.

    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. :blink:

  14. 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.
