SASS Wire Vet

SASS Wire Vet (1/1)



  1. Each year the team picks an event or unit to represent in their uniforms for the game. This year, that unit is the Special Forces on the 20th anniversary of Task Force Dagger in Afghanistan. https://www.unitedwestand.football/?fbclid=IwAR3cFGtPlEie8OUe9FdkXvb61k1GkoBJNkyvKj8r521X9oWmJuwBk9_HZp0
  2. If the 357 had been available in 1873, that presupposes propellant and metallurgy was also available. Yes, it would have been popular as it has been since 1934 when it was introduced. But assuming gun evolution were 51 years advanced, what would we have to work with today? Hyper velocity rounds from recoilless pistols? The 6.5 Creedmore, Rev 5? The possibilities are mind boggling.
  3. It’s good to see some parity coming back to college football. And let’s not forget this year’s Cinderella team, Cincinnati.
  4. They don’t deserve a CFP berth after that game. (Charlie’s gonna retreat to a hideaway and wait for the Bama faithful to chime in.)
  5. I find this to be my biggest personal risk. Like Sgt Sabre’s post, it was 8 years with Uncle Sam that opened my eyes and tore down stereotypes, for which I am very grateful. In today’s world where I am attacked for simply being who I am, I find it hard not to lash out at others, even those who are not hating me for who I am. It it is a fine line we all must walk.
  6. For anyone who might care to go to the source, instead of a muck raking rag… https://www.salvationarmyusa.org/usn/commitment-to-diversity/ https://salvationarmyflorida.org/anti-racism/
  7. The Huey was the C-130 of the rotary wing family in its day. Any mission. Anywhere.
  8. Sunset in our historic urban neighborhood, 4th and Gill, in Knoxville, TN.
  9. My dad and I were there. Will never be another one like that.
  10. I know Thanksgiving is a special time and I’m not trying to throw a wet blanket on anyone’s gathering. The feast has always been a special time for my wife. She loves cooking and feeding people, especially large family gatherings. In 2014 her dad was living with us, which actually added something special to the day in spite of his poor health. Around 1 o’clock she hollered down that the dinner was ready. Her dad got up, washed his hands, and had what was apparently a massive heart attack. He died in the arms of his daughter and his grandsons. While we are all grateful that he got to transition forward surrounded by family and friends and hearing words of love, there has been a pall over the holiday ever since. As you gather with your families this weekend, please send up a kind thought for my wife and sons.
  11. I’ve used the 44 mag for most of my life, including my entire time in SASS with some mild loads. I’m at a stage where I don’t shoot much CAS any more but have a zillion 200gr hard cast pills. What has been folks experience shooting hotter 44 mag loads with lead? How fast can you go? Are we allowed to share load data on the Wire? Any insight is much appreciated.
