  1. Most pattern weld uses an etching compound to 'bring out' the differences in the 2 steels. Its similar to bluing, the different metals take acid and discolor differently. If you polish it you can make it look like monosteel.

     The pattern welds I have are usually some form of high carbon steel and another tool steel. Not stainless so I have to care for them as I would a 1030 high carbon blade.

    You have to use other words besides AR15 and shoot.  The FB algorithm will kick you out for such offense words.   Instead use "My black plastic baby" or "Insurrection Repellant device".  If you're going to visit enemy lands, you must learn the language.

    Control of the language is control of the mind. A language cannot have a word for which the concept doesn't exist: Sapir - Whorf language relitivity.

  3. Linseed oilcloth takes aplication dry time and multiple layers, you are essentially applying pigmentless oil based paint to the cloth until you have a thick flexible waterproof layer. 

    One set of instructions I read said to taughtly nail a piece of sailcloth to the barn wall and paint it repeatedly. IIRC process took 3 months BEFORE cutting and stitching the geatcoat started.

  4. Old school blacksmith approach: lightly file the barrel where the pattern is moving TO.  Shortens that side allowing exhaust gasses to push the pattern away from that point. If it's shooting low and left  from the stockside view file the 5 o'clock position. 

     

    Is the end of the barrel true, plumb and square?

  5. Linseed stinks. A LOT. and takes time to paint and repaint to make a proper oilcloth. 

     

    Thompsons water seal in a pump sprayer. If it's cotton canvas wash it HOT to shrink the weave. After it's dry Hang it up outside and spray it with water seal let air dry hanging.

     

    Used to do that with canvas tent cloth, tight dry and tight.

     

    Or go into the camping aisle and buy a modern waterproofer in a spray can and do it the easy way.

  6. The police are employees of the government. 

    The government is made up of the people.

    When employees don't do their job in an organization SOMEBODY has to.

     

    Like all organizations our country has people who will sit and watch it burn while saying 'somebody should do something'

     

    The police are employees of the people not management. We don't live in a totalitarian police state yet.

     

    I have seen several comments from people stating a feeling along the lines of 'what gave him the right to show up there armed'. I should be able to walk around every day as armed as I want as a citizen. Their right to protest/riot/loot/burn does not abrogate my 2a. 

    When Ferguson mo caught I worked 1/2 mile from there. Darn Skippy I loaded heavy and carried armor. Seemed prudent.

    Legislation and social engineering seem to have changed our society to accept rioting as legit but open carry freaks people out.

    Trying cases in the media seems to be the new thing. Let's let the Judiciary do their thing.

    I was a 91B, 91W and then a 68W. The entire time I was a medic.

    I started as a 91A and they phased out the alphas. Back then you made Bravo as a senior medic so about E5. I was spec4 one day and woke up a Bravo
