By hiding his identity until they’ve got their ducks lined up, and by ensuring his internet tracks have been swept to only release information supportive of the narrative being told by “the authorities,” our ability to glean public interest information, which is needed to be informed, self-governing citizens, is diminished and effectively deprived.  If our only source of that information is the government, disseminated and amplified through its media mouthpieces, our system becomes no more credible or any less manipulative and tyrannical than China’s or Iran’s.

Seven or eight years ago a neighbor was getting rid of a bunch of these canvas jeans, rather heavily used and requiring some patches here and there but fundamentally in good shape and much more appropriate for winter than BDUs.

Schools are safer than they were in the 90s, and school shootings are not more common than they used to be, researchers say

From the linked piece:

Mass school shootings are incredibly rare events. In research publishing later this year, (James Alan) Fox (Lipman Family Professor of Criminology, Law, and Public Policy at Northeastern) and doctoral student Emma Fridel found that on average, mass murders occur between 20 and 30 times per year, and about one of those incidents on average takes place at a school.

Their research also finds that shooting incidents involving students have been declining since the 1990s.

Four times the number of children were killed in schools in the early 1990s than today, Fox said.
“There is not an epidemic of school shootings,” he said
Not according to the bleating gun control crowd. The actual numbers are pretty bad, but they always have to inflate them because apparently reality isn’t bad enough. It’s like hate crimes. Th...

Freeman Dyson, dead at 96.  Nobody does obits like Dwight, and this one is particularly good.

What it leaves out is just how big a deal he was in theoretical physics.  Among the big time awards he won are the Lorentz Medal, the Max Planck Medal, the J. Robert Oppenheimer Memorial Prize, and the Enrico Fermi Award.  That's kind of a Who's Who of theoretical physics awards.

Oh, yeah - he was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society, which makes him a "fraternity brother" with Sir Isaac Newton.

Interestingly, he did not win the Nobel Prize for his theory of Quantum Electrodynamics.  He was an early pioneer in this field (little physics pun, right there) along with Richard Feynman.  Feynman and a couple others won the prize in 1965; Dyson wasn't included.  It makes you wonder why.

A Rifleman’s Guide to the ACOG

by lothaen in The New Rifleman at 07:17, Friday, 28 February

The ACOG is a time tested optic… however it is getting rapidly displaced by the LPVO in civilian and military circles. This is a guide to share some of the advantages and disadvantages of the ACOG sighting system and compare it to the typical LPVO. Both the LPVO and ACOG are excellent tools for the rifleman, each with its unique advantages and disadvantages. I am going to highlight some thoughts on the ACOG as it relates to a rifleman trying to decide if the ACOG offers him or her anything over the LPVO. This guide will break down a few reasons why the ACOG is still pertinent, and then discuss the advantages (and some disadvantages) for the rifleman the ACOG can provide. Let’s get started!

Weight:

ACOG’s are lightweight. The compact prismatic design and simple construction lead to a compact, lightweight optic. My Ta01 weighs 9 oz and with mount, it runs a portly 14 oz. A Burris RT-6 weighs in at 17.4 oz without the mount. When you add the once piece mount you are adding about 5 more oz to the setup so at a bare minimum you are going to push 20+ oz. To be fair, a variable does allow us to go down to 1x so we need to add an RMR into...

OldAFSarge sometimes posts this sort of thing, but I don't remember this story over there.

Clarence Smoyer was said to be the best shot in the Tank Corps in World War II.  A reluctant warrior (drafted into the Army) he was assigned to the Tank Corps because he had taken a night class on aircraft engine repair.  Since the Sherman tank had what was basically an aircraft engine, he found himself assigned to be a loader.

As D-Day approached, his commanding officer thought it would be a good idea to cross train tank crews so they could cover for wounded team members.  That's when everyone realized that Smoyer was an exceptionally accurate gunner.  He quickly became assigned full time at that position, and gained a reputation for coolness under fire and quickness in getting off a first, accurate shot.  Since 75% of the time the tank that shot first survived, this was pretty important to his team.

He was assigned one of the first 20 of the brand new M26 Pershing medium tanks.  It was in this that he became famous for the tank duel in front of Cologne Cathedral in March 1945.

Joel Kotkin, as usual, is explaining that the real constituency of Progressive Statism is the new clerisy whose class interest is intimately connected to the growth in power and reach of the Administrative State.

The term clerisy was coined by Samuel Coleridge in the 1830s to define a class of people whose job it was to instruct and direct the masses. Traditional clerics remained part of this class, but they were joined by others—university professors, scientists, public intellectuals, and the heads of charitable foundations. Since the industrial revolution, the clerisy has expanded and become ever-more secular, essentially replacing the religious clergy as what the great German sociologist Max Weber called society’s “new legitimiz...

Biden and the Democratic Party

by TPOL Nathan in The Price of Liberty at 05:00, Friday, 28 February

With Biden’s campaign spiraling down, the upcoming South Carolina caucus, preceding the Super Tuesday votes, is critical. Can he, just once, overcome Sanders? Can he keep enough of the old “moderate” Democratic coalition of union, blacks, and the like? Or is he doomed to lose to the nearly-octogenarian socialist from Vermont?

But if Bernie wins, it is the Democratic Party that loses. Why?

Not only is he closer in nature and politics to Clinton, but his defects are things that the Democratic ruling class wants. (In other words, Biden’s faults are not defects, they are just “unadvertised” advantages to the Democratic power-mongers. They are the very features that the puppet masters want in a president.

He’s telling people at campaign speeches that 150 million Americans have been killed by guns in less than two decades? He states that he is running for Senate? He can’t tell the same story or the same joke the same way two times in a row? Is this senility?

Forced-Air Cooling in an Experimental Ross Machine Gun

by Ian McCollum in Forgotten Weapons at 05:27, Friday, 28 February

In addition to building three main patterns of straight-pull bolt action rifle for the Canadian military and the commercial market, Sir Charles Ross also experimented with self-loading rifles. Starting with a standard Ross Mk III, this experimental rifle has a gas piston and trigger to allow automatic fire and a very neat forced-air cooling system. A one-way rather mechanism (now broken, unfortunately) spins the fan when the bolt cycles, pushing air into a barrel shroud similar to that of a Lewis gun. This rifle was most likely made in 1915 or 1916 with an eye to a military light machine gun or automatic rifle contract – which never happened.

Thanks to the Canadian War Museum for providing me access to film this Ross for you!

InRangeTV has a couple videos up showing Karl Kasarda's use of an Uberti 1873 Winchester Sporting Rifle and a 1911 in the 2020 Desert Brutality 2-gun match. They are fun, interesting videos which demonstrate what these old guns (especially the '73) can do.

Day 1: https://youtu.be/c23ViNFqi6k

Day 2: https://youtu.be/Q-vv2OOLS7M

Observations:

The videos do a good job of how to run a levergun in a fight. If you're not shooting, make sure your gun is topped off.

Karl's rifle is chambered for .45 Colt, which is not authentic for original Winchesters but he does address that. He makes sure to note that his cartridges are loaded to duplicate original .44 WCF ballistics at the muzzle.

In the first video he mentioned that he secured the sling to the butt with hobnails. I have the same sling and used in when deer hunting 2018 with my Cimarron 1873. It wasn't all that secure, but it's a Leatherman sling intended for use on muzzleloaders. Last year I found a better option in a universal sling from October Country, which is securely laced ...

There was a lot more cut substantial wood than I expected. I keep my use of juniper to a healthy minimum, but Landlady’s stovepipe is shorter and double-walled and burns a lot hotter. It never even soots up. So it’s safer to use juniper in her stove.

In this editorial, I propose that a lack of raw data or data fabrication is another possible cause of irreproducibility.

How to Import Guns into the US (Legally!)

by Ian McCollum in Forgotten Weapons at 05:27, Thursday, 27 February

I have had a bunch of people ask me what the process is for legally importing firearms into the US. I have gone through this process now a couple times over the past few years, and I think I have a good enough understanding to give you an overview. If you are interested in importing a firearm, the two things to know are that (1) it is possible to legally do this, and (2) it will be pretty expensive to do.

The customs broker I use is Polaris Worldwide Logistics. They were one of the supporters of Desert Brutality, and my import experience with them has been the best of any of the several companies I have used. I would highly recommend them if you are looking to get into this process. You can reach them via the head of their firearms department, Les Winner, at les.winner@polaris-logistics.com.

Today, February 27, is the Feast Day of St. Gabriel Possenti.

Legend holds that Gabriel Possenti was a Catholic seminarian in Isola del Gran Sasso, Italy. In 1860 he is said to have used his skills with the pistol to drive off a band of marauding soldiers who were terrorizing the town. Possenti faced the troublemakers after grabbing revolvers from two soldiers. As they laughed at the young student, he took aim and accurately shot a lizard that was running across the road. Impressed, the soldiers left the town, escorted by the seminarian, who had become the hero of the town.

Like many Saints, there's an unclear line between the facts of the Saint's life and the "tradition" associated with him. However, this story about Gabriel Possenti has led to him being promoted as the Patron Saint of Handgunners. The St. Gabriel Possenti Society was created for the purpose of promoting the Saint's cause. The society also promotes the study of the historical, philosophical and theological bases for the doctrine of self-defense.

The Winchester Model 67

by Pawpaw in PawPaw's House at 16:13, Wednesday, 26 February

Belle came home from her mother's house the other day and took a rifle out of the car.  A Winchester Model 67.  It had belonged to her step-dad, and before that, it had belonged to a family friend.  For the past decade or longer, it had languished in the family gun case.

The Winchester 67 is a bolt action, single shot rimfire rifle, chambered in .22 Short, Long, or Long Rifle.It was the "value-priced" line in the Winchester family, selling for the exorbitant price of $5.50 when first produced in 1934.  It stayed in production until 1960 when it sold for $18.95 MsRP.

The Model 67 was produced without serial numbers, which makes dating it a little sketchy, but it shows a nickeled bolt, a nickeled safety, and a finger-gtooved for-end.  From what I have learned about the little rifle, I believe that it was manufactured sometimes between April, 1934 and December 1935  After that, they discontinued the finger-grooved stock.

It needs to be cleaned and oiled, and in time it will be fed appropriately ad used to train new shooters.  Belle asked what it is worth ...

"Woke" bus lines defy Fedgov to protect border jumpers

by TPOL Nathan in The Price of Liberty at 17:00, Wednesday, 26 February

Greyhound Lines, Inc. the largest private intercity bus line in the Fifty States has given the middle finger to DHS and ICE/CBP/Border Patrol, according to stories like this one in the Florida Times. DHS agents will no longer be allowed to board their buses to find and confront border jumpers: illegal immigrants, without prior consent by Greyhound.

In this, Greyhound will be joining many municipal and regional government buslines, joining local police forces in denying DHS an opportunity to find border jumpers on public transportation. This may be in response to a California lawsuit claiming that Greyhound denies “consumer protection” to its passengers.

The company will also deny access to “non-public” areas of their terminals to those same LEO, without warrants. (Or maybe even with warrants.)

Krasnovia In Exile (I’m in Facebook Jail Again)

by correia45 in Monster Hunter Nation at 09:28, Wednesday, 26 February

I should have posted this yesterday, but I came down with a nasty bug.  I can’t even do another Free Krasnovia video because I’ve lost my voice.

But anyways, I got put in Facebook Jail again for Violating Community Standards, 30 days this time. Being powerless, meaningless, sad losers, China Mike’s little minions have nothing better to do that report all my posts as hate speech. These people are a fantastic example of how red flag laws will work in real life.

Plumbing and Woods Cruising

by Pawpaw in PawPaw's House at 13:57, Wednesday, 26 February

I went to Jena today at noon to help my mother-in-law with a plumbing issue.  My brother-in-law met me at her house to assist.  Surprisingly, within ten minutes we were done.  Plumbing jobs don't often go that smoothly.  So, we had time to run out to a patch of woods on the outskirts of town that brother-in-law has leased for deer hunting.  It's small, as leases go, and it's on the outskirts of town, so we have to be really careful about shooting directions.

But, this little patch of woods is full of suburban deer.  They're everywhere if the sign is any indication.  I haven't been on a deer lease since 2015 o thereabouts, so this is going to be a lot of fun.

Sniper no sniping!

by Tam in View From The Porch at 11:57, Wednesday, 26 February

Stayed up too late watching the first third or so of Battle for Sevastopal last night. It's modern propaganda (intended to generate good feelings between Russia and Ukraine because "Hey, tovarisch, remember when we shot all those Nazis together? Good times, eh? Why do we fight now?") and it's based on a star of WWII Soviet propaganda, but it's a good enough movie that I don't mind.

FIRST LOOK: India’s AK – Not Quite an AK-203

by Matthew Moss in The Firearm Blog at 10:00, Wednesday, 26 February

For years we at TFB have closely followed India’s struggles to select a new service rifle to replace the 5.56x45mm INSAS which has gained a questionable reputation over the years. Numerous home-grown rifles such as the Indian Ordnance Factories Board-designed Excalibur and the Multi Calibre Individual Weapon System have both proven to be failures. A glimmer […]

Quote of the day—Molly Carter

by Joe in The View From North Central Idaho at 06:00, Wednesday, 26 February

What has the 20th Century shown us about gun control? That an unarmed country is not a safe country. That when citizens don’t have the right to bear arms, governments can and do grow too large and become a threat to their people. That in the 20th Century, governments murdered four times as many people as those that were killed in all the world’s wars during that same time period. That millions more people were killed by their own governments than by criminals.

Molly Carter
American Gun Ownership: The Positive Impacts of Law-Abiding Citizens Owning Firearms
[The first publication of this essay is unclear to me. It was sometime in 2019 or earlier. I found it on many sites with the most recent being Zero Hedge (via email from Tony P.).

Reading it I was struck by so many references to materials from the 1990s that I suspected it was over 20 years old. Even t...

This time it’s Bloomberg. In last night’s South Carolina debate, Bloomie admitted to buying the 2018 House Majority:

Slip of the tongue? Mike Bloomberg stops himself from saying he 'bought' all of the new Democrats' seats

Let’s just go on the record. They talk about 40 Democrats, 21 of those were people that I spent $100 million to help elect. All of the new Democrats that came in, put Pelosi in charge, and gave the Congress the ability to control this president, I bought – I got them
He obviously didn’t quite stop himself.

See the previous example.

The Marines are Replacing the ACOG with… The VCOG

by lothaen in The New Rifleman at 07:43, Wednesday, 26 February

The Marines have awarded Trijicon a contract to produce the “squad common optic” which appears to be a variant of the VCOG from Trijicon.

VCOG

The SCO is a magnified day optic that improves target acquisition and probability-of-hit with infantry assault rifles. The system comprises a noncaliber-specific reticle and incorporates an illuminated or nonilluminated aim-point. Because the optic is variable in power, Marines can identify their targets from farther distances than the RCO.

The variable continues to march forward into combat roles. The extra 4X over the standard RCO does result in increased hit percentages past 400 yards, but the penalty is weight.  With the extra 31 oz of the VCOG a loaded M27 becomes a 12 pound carbine.

He also has the obituary for NASA'a Katherine Johnson.  They made a film about her not very long ago.

Digby Dent on What’s Happened to Poor Vermont

by JDZ in Never Yet Melted at 09:21, Wednesday, 26 February

Glancing through the morning’s potential blog fodder, I found a Spectator piece on The Evolution of Vermont. The hijacking of that once-paradigmatic flinty conservative, rock-ribbed Republican state by goat-milking hippies and trust-fund bolsheviks is, to my mind, one of the true tragedies of our time. Seeing Ethan Allen and Calvin Coolidge replaced today by a crazy ranting Communist makes my blood boil.

The Spectator piece turned out to be a tongue-in-cheek philosophical reflection on the same theme by an imaginary old school WASP commentator from the Yale Class of ’89 named “Digby Dent.”

“Digby Dent” is the pseudonymous author of a more-or-less-monthly Wasp Life column, whose nom-...

The last batch of Mauser K98k rifles made by Brno after World War Two was a run in 1950 for East German border guards. These rifles have receivers marked “tgf 1950” in a style just like the wartime German arsenal codes, but where the codes were random letters, this one stands for “Tschekoslovakische Gewehr Fabrik” or Czechoslovak Rifle Factory in German. The rifles are very rare in the US, having remained in East Germany until the late 1970s, when a relationship developed between the new socialist government in Ethiopia and the DDR. A batch of the tgf 1950 Mausers was supplied to Ethiopia as military aid around this time.

Shukran Druze 2020

by Sheila Stokes in The Zelman Partisans at 01:44, Wednesday, 26 February

So this is late, by more than a week late. But LIFE is intruding on my life right now, so while this column is late, it is no less sincere or grateful. The reason it’s more than a week late is that #ShukranDruze2020 is a week that is meant to coincide with Parshat Yitro, Exodus 18:1-20:23. Yitro (Jethro) was the father in law of Moshe. The man responsible for the organization of courts and administering justice to the new nation of Israel. Jethro of Midian is considered an ancestor of Druze, who revere him as their spiritual founder and chief prophet.

According to Wikipedia,

The Druzites form a religious minority in Israel of more than 100,000, mostly residing in the north of the country. In 2004, there were 102,000 Druze living in the country. In 2010, the population of Israeli Druze citizens grew to over 125,000. At the end of 2018, there were 143,000. Most Israeli Druze identify ethnically as Arabs. Today, thousands of Israeli Druze belong to “Druze Zionist” movements....

The following blog is an excerpt from, 20 Things to Do in 2020 in National Parks by the National Park Foundation here.

A new decade is a fresh start to form new habits, take on new challenges, and have new experiences. We’ve compiled a checklist to set the tone for 2020 – one filled with history, culture, nature, and adventure.
