last night. There is a reason that Rod Serling's early death was such a disaster to the arts, and this one of them. The first of the story's either a descent into mental illness, or a supernatural discovery of dangerous predestination as were many of the episodes of the original series. The second story is one of those reminders of how much of the mainstream of our culture has changed over time. Like many of Serling's stories, death is an inevitable process not to be feared, even if there is nothing afterwards, but as one line observes, "like going to sleep after a long and tiring day." In this Serling captured well the dominant Judeo-Christian perspective of Western Civilization even ignoring the assumption in Daniel 12:2:
Multitudes who sleep in the dust of the earth will awake: some to everlasting life, others to shame and everlasting contempt.The older and sicker you get, the less frightening death becomes: only the prospect of a painful death remains truly frig...

"What do you mean the Native Americans altered the land and cut down forests?!?"
Even so, people in the 1800s made less of an environmental impact on the valley than the people who lived there before colonization. Loughlin and his colleagues compared the pollen species in sediment layers from the last 700 years to the pollen species in layers of lake sediment deposited long before the first people moved into the region thousands of years ago. They found that the period before 1588 was most strikingly different from the original pre-human cloud forest. Even the settlement and cattle grazing since 1819 disturbed the cloud forest less than pre-Columbian agriculture.
It has been difficult to understand exactly how and to what extent pre-Columbian people in Central and South America modified their environment with agriculture, irrigation, and construction. Different cultures left different marks on the landscape, and archaeologists are sometimes still surprised by wha...

Every time we get weather the connection goes all wonky. That’s always been the case and it was much worse back when I depended on the satellite dish. Back then sometimes I lost connection for days. Now I have this smartphone, which also serves as a hotspot for the laptop – which remains my main blogging ‘pooter because it can receive emails and manipulate graphics – and normally that works great even though I can’t pretend I ever understood how it works. It must all run on the same signal, so you’d think either everything would work or nothing would.
Not so, though. The hotspot hasn’t been able to connect with anything all afternoon, but this smartphone by itself works just fine. Tomorrow it might be the other way around.
Evening storm is coming in now and I might lose it all for a while. Time to unplug things and wait out the lightning.

I have been having some unexplained shortness of breath problems since at least May when a 1.2 mile walk to the convention center where the NRA Annual Meeting was held left me struggling to keep up with an NRA employee wearing high heels. Last night, the "overly demanding" exercise was 90 minutes of doing the couch potato. Many of the symptoms were those from before my aortic valve replacement; I spent several sleepless hours deciding whether the post-operative pain of going through that again was worse than calling it a life, and moving on. Thinking through the effects on my wife, kids, and gun rights, I decided that it was worth it. (Or perhaps doing the slightly riskier transarterial valve replacement (TAVR), which does not require cutting you open.)
This morning, the shortness of breath problem woke me up. Walking to the kitchen to prepare breakfast not only exhausted me but produced upper left chest pain. Nitroglycerin pills solved the pain, so we set out for the St. Al's E/R. The very concerned, engaged, communicative (can I think of some more positive adjectives?) doctor found an EKG no worse than my last post-...

I have been having shortness of breath issues for some months now, including after 90 minutes being a couch potato last night. This morning walking to the kitchen was too intense, and I was having upper left chest pain. Nitroglycerin took the pain away, so to the E/R. The EKG was normal; the treponin level indicated no heart muscle death, but I am anemic and the incredibly concerned and engaged E/R doctor thought these might be symptoms of that. Unsurprisingly, the reduced oxygenation of the blood has many similarities to a heart attack. He is having my cardiologist jump me in queue for an appointment and having me increase my iron intake.
This anemia might be a product of the hernia surgery, but when I was in Dallas in May, a 1.2 mile walk left me utterly overwhelmed, so I think at most the hernia surgery tipped me over the edge.
That’s why opposition to large-scale Muslim immigration into Europe (or America) also has little or nothing to do with xenophobia, racism (Muslim is not a race anyway) or nativism.

I am a Holocaust concentration camp survivor. I am one of a rapidly dwindling number of eyewitnesses to the Nazi Holocaust, the most systematic genocide of all time.
I regularly speak at high schools, universities, and community events, sharing my eyewitness account with newer generations of Americans who have no concept of the horrors governments can inflict. I feel a duty to keep alive the memories of millions of Jews who were murdered by Adolf Hitler’s Germany and who cannot speak for themselves.
Today, misinformed students cynically led by progressives are using that event and its rallying call to confiscate guns and turn them over to government–the exact opposite of the core lessons to be learned. This is so fundamentally wrong no justification can excuse it. Naming a book Never Again!–which is a desperate call to arms–to address drug-addled, video-mesmerized, psychotic, murderous classmates –misappropriates and reverses the central messages and lessons of the Holocaust.

I had some good results with IMR3031 and Sierra Matchking 168 grainYou're not the first person to report that, but I've always considered 3031 to be a bit fast for the .308. I've always considered 3031 to be perfect for the .30-30 WIn, and for years, the chant-mantra for reloading was "30 grains of 3031 in the .30-30." But, even this load will get you in trouble nowadays because about the turn of the century, 3031 changed. It got a little aster. We learned that we had to back down to 29 grains for a standard .30-30 load (here, I'm talking about the lever gun load with the 170 grain RN jacketed bullet.) Of course, the .30-30 shines as a cast bullet cartridge, but we're opening a whole 'nuter wroms when we talk about cast bullets.

So here's the text of the petition, interspersed with my comments:
Our names are Amanda and Sophia. One day in science class, we came upon an article on plastic straws. The article stated that Americans use more than 500 million straws a day- and throw them away. That is equivalent to 125 school buses filled with plastic straws. We also learned that by 2050, there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish.
Well, Amanda and Sophia, one of the first things you should learn is that most of these so-called "articles" are bullshit. If it's on youtube, assume it's bullshit. On a petition site, assume it's bullshit. Twitter: Bullshit. Any kind of pop-news site: bullshit. The latter are especially bad. They only want ad dollars. In fact, the "article" you read was written by a 9 year old girl. As far as studies done by 9 year old girls go, it's probably an A for effort, C for results. As far as an actual science article, F-. About like listening to a Kindergarten choir and thinking you heard music. When people start believing 9 year old girls are experts on thermodepolymerization and marine biology, we as a society are fucked.

John A. Stormer, whose self-published 1964 book, “None Dare Call It Treason,” became a right-wing favorite despite being attacked as inaccurate in promulgating the notion that American government and institutions were full of Communist sympathizers, died on July 10 in Troy, Mo. He was 90.
Mr. Stormer’s book, published by his own Liberty Bell Press, tapped into a vein of conservative alarm that was still very much present in the early 1960s, even though the Red-baiting era of Senator Joseph R. McCarthy had faded in the 1950s.

The campaign manager for Democrat Tedra Cobb, who is running to unseat Rep. Elise Stefanik (R., N.Y.), left the campaign on Tuesday in the wake of a video where Cobb says she won't publicly state what she actually believes about banning certain guns.
Mentioned this twit before, but it's worth putting up again(bold mine):
"When I was at this thing today, it was the first table I was at, a woman said, ‘How do you feel about assault rifles?' And I said they should be banned," Cobb said in the video. "And I said, you know, people were getting up to go, to go get their lunch because it was a buffet, and I just said to her, I want you to know Cindy, I cannot say that."
Cobb's campaign website includes a page detailing her support for various gun-control measures but does not include any provision advocating for the ban of any firearms. Cobb went on to say that she had been advised by representatives of the gun-control group M...
This morning, the largest newspaper in the state, the Baltimore Sun, reports that Maryland’s Department of Legislative Services calculated that the state would have to levy a 10 percent payroll tax against every business and charge a $2,800 fee for every man, woman, and child in the state to raise the needed $24 billion a year.
As I told a guy years back when he was counting on Hillary! to give him free health care, "It won't be free. You may not be writing a check to the doctor, but you damn well WILL be paying for it."
The Democrat reaction to the numbers:
Kevin Harris, a spokesman for Democratic gubernatorial candidate Ben Jealous says that it’s “premature” to talk about what kind of taxes or fees would be raised to pay for the plan.
Yeah, wait until the economy is trashed and people are screaming, then talk about the actual costs. Which I guarantee will be a lot more than their estimate.
that's said to give very good accuracy in .310 Cadet, check on it, and find that it's made in Australia, and the maker can't afford the costs and mess of getting a license to export them.

The gun-hating Left loves to go on about how if you own a gun, it might be used to shoot someone you know. “You say that like it’s a bad thing.” Homeowner shot Travelers Rest man in self-defense, Greenville deputies say.
They were acquainted. He came to the guy’s house. “A confrontation” ensued. He attacked the guy while he was sitting in his vehicle. The homeowner responded by shooting him one time.
Sikkila left the scene and was located later on Pine Log Ford Road. He was taken to a hospital for non-life-threatening injuries. He has since been transported to the Greenville County jail, according to online jail records.
So they knew each other. He was a threat, and the homeowner defended himself. That isn’t just my opinion.

Germany established their colony of German South West Africa (Deutsch-Südwestafrika, now Namibia) in 1884, as part of its late attempt to become a colonial power to rival the United Kingdom. The soldiers deployed to protect German interests t here were the Kaiserliche Schutztruppen, and they were few in number and armed with a variety of rifles. Most had Mauser 1871 Jager rifles, single shot black powder arms. The best off, however, were outfitted with new Mauser 98 rifles when the German military adopted the G98. A special batch was made for these colonial troops, with a few distinctive features – a bent bolt handle and sights calibrated down to 200m. And yes – they were used by troops mounted on camels!

Academy Sports pistol thief - who threatened to kill upon his release - released on bond - The Gun Writer:
Jason F. White told Tallahassee police that he tried to steal a Glock 27 from Academy Sports June 29 because he needed to kill someone. The unemployed 24-year-old Tallahassee resident told officers an “unknown man” was threatening him and his children, and that he needed to kill him.This certainly provides a provocative contrast to the previous story about the Brit who was arrested for attempted murder for firing a paint-ball gun into the ground in front of an aggressor.
“Close enough. I felt he would lunge at me and strike me with the stick as he was carrying it in a raised position,” the owner said. “He ignored my demand, slowly moving forward. Consciously, I moved the paintball gun to the front, still maintaining its position pointing to the ground. Approximately one metre in front of me, I released two paintballs. They made a popping sound. Then the man stopped.” The owner then called the police.Arrested for attempted murder!

It stormed like crazy yesterday afternoon. Storm came out of the north, which I’ve been kind of hoping for because I wanted to see how fixing the north edge of the roof would finally get the front window to stop leaking. For quite some time my assumption has been that the water is exiting through the top of the window but entering up between the roof and the top edge of the siding.
Apparently not. The siding and roofing are now very well sealed but the front window still leaks like a sieve. More than that, the front bedroom window leaks just as badly. This is completely confusing. They’re metal flange windows: They screw to the underlayment and then the siding goes over the metal, there’s lots of caulk at every step, and I simply can’t see any physical way either window could leak. But they both do, about equally badly, implying that I’ve done something wrong in their installation but I can’t imagine what. No way the bedroom addition is leaking from the top of the frame – there’s overlapping metal roofing and a good drip edge. I...
I started reloading back in 1976, and quickly became hooked. With three boys and one daughter that likes to shoot, we lived in the country, and my ammo bill was .. interesting. So, I started reloading for shotgun, then pistol, and finally for rifle. For a time, back at the turn of the century, I was the managing editor of a webzine called The Frugal Outdoorsman. In 2003, I penned an article about reloading on the kitchen table.
Today, I recalled a conversation with my daughter. It seems that the hunting season is approaching and she was inquiring if I happened to have any spare .308 Win cartridges laying around. the kids have been scamming ammo from me for years, and I make batter ammo than most of what is on the shelves at the stores, for a whole lot less money.
So, I was digging through my scrounging stocks, and found a bag of once-fired brass, .308 Federal Gold Medal Match, that I found at the local Sheriff's office range. So, I found my hand press, brought tem inside and decapped them. Then took them out to the t...

Indiana is bracing for a hotly contested senate race this fall, with incumbent Joe Donnelly (D-IN) facing GOP upstart Mike Braun, who won one of the nastiest primary mud-wrestling contests it has ever been my misfortune to live through.
With control of the senate teetering on a knife edge, this race is attracting national attention and a lot of out-of-state dough. In fact, the Senate Majority Project ad below complains that "out of state billionaires"...ie the Kochs...are buying ads to smear our beloved "Indiana Joe". (A recent pro-Braun ad accused Donnelly's family printing business of off-shoring south of the border and dubbed him "Mexico Joe".)

It is especially inappropriate for the majority opinion here to apply intermediate scrutiny rather than strict scrutiny to D.C.’s ban on semi-automatic rifles. No court of appeals decision since Heller has applied intermediate scrutiny to a ban on a class of arms that have not traditionally been banned an “incidental” regulation. It is equivalent to a ban on a category of speech. Such restrictions on core enumerated constitutional protections are not subjected to mere intermediate scrutiny review. The majority opinion here is in uncharted territory in suggesting that intermediate scrutiny can apply to an outright ban on possession of a class of weapons that have not traditionally been banned.
Gun bans and gun regulations that are longstanding—or, put another way, sufficiently rooted intext, history, and tradition—are consistent with the Second Amendment individual right. Gun bans and gun regulations that are not longstanding or sufficiently rooted in text, history,and tradition are not consistent with the Second Amendment individual right.

Until recently I’ve had a long and relatively happy relationship with Amazon*. Then I got a smartphone and it all went to hell.
Naive and unknowing, I made the mistake of logging on to Amazon with a second device, which triggered some security bot. Now I can’t use either my laptop OR my smartphone on Amazon without inputting a second security code emailed by Amazon’s bot – except the emails the bot sends me are invariably BLANK. Which is not a big help.
Maybe – probably – it’s just my comically outdated software. Maybe … I don’t know. I’m sure an eleven-year-old would sort this out without breaking stride. I have officially reached fogeydom. It’s all downhill from here.

It’s Not Controversial -- It’s Virtually Holy
This article originally ran in the JPFO Bill of Rights Sentinel, Ed. 13
It’s easy to feel a certain degree of guilt about advocating for gun rights and the Second Amendment.
The amount of mud-slinging, criticism and abuse “regular” people heap on you, when you speak of guns is so enormous, it can weigh you down. It is difficult to bear. The constant berating, denigration and antagonism. The non-stop belittling. Endless bombardment by the so-called mainstream media, about crime and society’s psychos doing bad things, it makes it tough to see the forest for the trees, to stand up for what’s right and just and good.
Yet the brilliant Founding Fathers, the ones who ensconced the right to arms in the Bill of Rights and the Constitution must have had some method to their madness. And it turns out it wasn’t madness at all. It was brilliance.
They realized that no matter what they did about the lowly common man, the even lower common criminal was going to be armed. The d...

Independence Day – we like to call it “The 4th of July” – we celebrate it with family cook-outs with hot dogs and burgers on the grill, and close the day out with sparklers and fireworks. But, when was the last time you or I really stopped to consider the deeper meanings of this day? What too many of us don’t know is that July 4, 1776 wasn’t the day we gained our Independence from English rule – it was the day we declared (and knew that we must fight for the right to have) our freedom. Too many of us have become so separated from our nation’s historical origins that we only know July 4th as an extra day off from work, when in fact it was the day that our Forefathers set out to do the hardest, most perilous, and dangerously life-threatening work.
ASM826's post yesterday looked back on the race to the Moon nostalgically, as a lost age of engineering and an opportunity squandered. I'm not so sure. The Moon race was an anomaly in American history, a massive engineering project divorced from financial return. The great projects from the 19th and 20th centuries all were focused on profit and growth - the Erie canal, the transcontinental railroad, the Interstate Highway system. Project Apollo stands out as the oddball.

to have real problems with Mueller & Co. I think I mentioned before how he was involved in that screwed-up investigation of the anthrax attacks; I pulled that article up, doesn't this sound familiar?
Much of what authorities discovered, they leaked anonymously to journalists. The result was an unrelenting stream of inflammatory innuendo that dominated front pages and television news. Hatfill found himself trapped, the powerless central player in what Connolly describes as “a story about the two most powerful institutions in the United States, the government and the press, ganging up on an innocent man. It’s Kafka.”
In their own depositions, both John Ashcroft and Robert Mueller, the FBI director, said they had expressed concern to underlings about news leaks that appeared to single out and smear Hatfill. Both, however, denied any knowledge of who specifically was doing the leaking.

Today I am joined by Mr. Stephen Petroni, chairman of FESAC – the Foundation for European Societies of Arms Collectors. FESAC is an organization set up to advocate for and protect the rights of European arms collectors at the European Union level. Here in the United States many people shrug off gun collecting in Europe as a lost cause when in reality American and European collectors have a lot to learn and gain from cooperation, as do collectors within each nation in the European Union. Just as the US is a collection of states with widely differing gun laws, so is the EU a collection of nations with diverse laws and regulations. If we want to promote the preservation of military history worldwide, we must work together worldwide to support each other.

Robert Mueller must be convicted of treason and executed.
Liberals may now close the window and scream about how insane I am, maintaining their belief in Trump's Russian birth certificate and the Easter Bunny.
Mueller indicted 12 Russian intelligence officers for developing software, under orders from their leadership, in Russia.
Not for using it against us, which still wouldn't be a crime (since US law does not apply in Russia), though it might be an act of war.
For DEVELOPING it.
And in the process he's exposed them to the world. They effectively can never leave Russia without a diplomatic discussion and guarantee of their safety in any nation they might stop in.
Now, anyone capable of basic rational thought (apparently, not-liberals) realizes this is a precedent for Russia, and any other nation, to likewise file charges against any and all of our intelligence community.
Or, really, anyone at all who has done anything that is restricted.

The Zelman Partisans recently received an inquiry about liberal Jews and tikkun olam.
Y.B. ben Avraham addressed this back in 2014:
Gradually setting aside their fundamental belief in Torah, and longing for Geula, many Jews focused on secular, social action, to satisfy their ingrained drive for Tikkun Olam. After many, many centuries of exile, poverty, suffering, and death, many thought the Enlightenment (and the Jewish variant; the Haskalah) was the correct path. Perhaps, they thought, ‘this’ was the way to bring about the coming of Moshiach?
For all that I pen many of the columns here, I am not a Jew. Faith comes hard to me; even a belief system that has successfully maintained an identity for thousands of years. Nonetheless, I admire the strength of will that maintains in the face of adversity, and I see things that have happened to Jews as a cautionary tale; what has been done to one group — the Shoah, for instance — can be done to any other group, if they do not stand fast. And I admire the Maccabees for… standing fast.

If you read just a bit of this, the implication is that the NRA is somehow tied to Russian election meddlers. But, basically, she’s a member and met a few NRA folks at a gun rights festival.
Interesting polling data from Pew. So, let’s see. US adult population is 249,485,228. 3 in 10 own a gun. So that means 74,845,568 say they own guns. Of those 3 in 10, 19% say they’re NRA members. So, 14,220,658 people are NRA members? Or, rather, some number of people think they’re members.

He thinks assault weapons are within the scope of the Second Amendment, which puts him way out of step with the Supreme Court and circuit courts that have considered this issue. [The Second Amendment] protects the kinds of weapons that were in common use at the timein 1791, when the Second Amendment was adopted. Those are [former Supreme Court Justice Antonin] Scalias words.

The second phase of constipation was bad enough for me to drive to the E/R last night. I was concerned that they might regard this as not a real "emergency." The intake nurse had spent nine awful days after a tonsillectomy, so they took it seriously. After an X-ray to rule out bowel obstruction they gave me what I hope will be a once-in-a-lifetime experience, which loosened the logjam enough to reduce my pain and nausea enough to go home and sleep badly, a giant improvement over no sleep at all. They also have a medicine that reverses opoid-induced constipation.
I am still bloated and uncomfortable with some pain, but I can hear gurgling noises that suggest the factory is beginning to operate again.

On the top of the stack in the Reading Room is Osprey's US Cold War Aircraft Carriers: Forrestal, Kitty Hawk and Enterprise Classes.
I was idly skimming the section covering CVN-65, the Mobile Chernobyl, and noticed that it named the ship's skipper at the time it was commissioned: Vincent P. de Poix. Dude was a fighter pilot in the South Pacific with VF-6 for a little over a year in '42-'43.
Think about this as a metric of the speed of technological advance in the 20th Century: The first captain of a nuclear-powered aircraft carrier got his primary flight training in a fabric-covered open-cockpit biplane. When he was born in 1916, the unofficial air speed record was 134mph in a British S.E.4 fighter plane, which is likely rather slower than the first plane to land on the Enterprise was going when it trapped the wire.
As far as the ship he was skippering, it remained in service until the end of 2012. To put that in perspective, the Enterprise's first captain was born during the Wilson administration, before commercial radio was re...

If you’re anything like me, you’re tired of reading handgun recommendations that can be summed up as “small and pink.” After all, smaller handguns are harder to control, not easier, as many handgun neophytes seem to assume. Pink can be liberating, and no one should be stopped from buying a pink handgun based on someone else’s opinion of the color, but recommending a gun on color alone doesn’t pay due respect to other important factors.
How, then, is one to pick out a handgun for their wife or girlfriend? Easy – by looking at her shopping receipts and figuring out where she shops most. We’ve used a highly scientific formula to match guns to shopping habits, making your task easy and fun. Ready? Let’s go!
Yeah, it’s a clickbait nonsense listicle. But it’s unusually funny, and I can’t actually disagree with most of those few elements about which I have some knowledge. Except: Matching Wal-Mart and S&W? Naw. Where&...

So when the trains stop running during the coming illegal strike, well, at least no one will die on a train. Fewer high speed accidents, too, because traffic will be 5 mph bumper to bumper.
The life of Ernest Hemingway remains sufficiently fascinating that a new book has appeared, Andrea Di Robilant’s Autumn in Venice: Ernest Hemingway and His Last Muse, chronicling the great man’s not-necessarily-ever-consummated infatuation at age 49 with an 18-year-old Italian countess.
That inappropriate relationship, ironically enough, provided the gravamen of Ernest Hemingway’s worst, only genuinely bad, downright embarrassing novel, ...
In Tablet, Claire Lehmann discusses the sudden rise to powerful influence of cultural taboos forbidding criticism of recognized victim groups and the ability of members of such groups to wall off cultural items and artifacts from access by outsiders.
Perhaps the most famous American case occurred in the fall of 2015, when Co-Master of Yale Silliman College Erika Christakis responded with an email of her own to an admonitory pre-Halloween email from the Intercultural Affairs Council — a group of administrators from the cultural centers, Chaplain’s Office and other campus organizations — sent to the ...

July 16, 1969, the United States launched Apollo 11.
I consider the Apollo missions to be the high water mark of the United States. The energy the country had coming out of World War II culminated in this:
I remember the summer of 1969, watching these events play out, and thinking that there was no limits to what we could do.
"We choose to go to the Moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard."

“When you leave Cuba for the first time, you discover many things that you had been blind to,” said Yaili Jiménez Gutierrez, one of the doctors who filed suit. “There comes a time when you get tired of being a slave.”

Chicago PD has released the bodycam footage of the shooting. Body camera footage of police involved shooting on the 2000 block of East 71st street. The Tribune has listed a graphic content warning.
The video at the link above does show him getting shot.
Second City Cop – who gets the hat tip – has the 2 screen grabs that are of interest. One shows the gun, and maybe even a spare mag. The second shows his hand on the grip in preparation for drawing.
USA Today says that there is also security camera video showing he was armed.
Protests continued Sunday evening. A few dozen demonstrators who gathered near the scene of the shooting were unmoved by the police video.
You can’t please some people.

Having trouble figuring out what to get Grandma this upcoming holiday season? Are the consarned scruffy-haired teenagers on her block getting lippy as she shuffles back from the IHOB?

Flashy PR stunts involving untested technology when peoples’ lives are at stake. Not everything should be used as a PR stunt. Elon Musk’s Thai Cave Rescue Grandstanding Explains What’s Wrong with Tesla.
1. Sometimes, Established Experts Actually Know Something
People who are experts in a specialized field—like, say, cave-diving—generally are not idiots and don’t need a Silicon Valley guy to come swooping in to say, “Well, actually, here’s how you really do it.” In fact, a big emerging story from the cave rescue is the crucial decision of Thai officials to hand control to a team of foreign cave divers after one of their Navy SEALs died during part of the rescue mission.
Someone with no knowledge of the caves – and no knowledge of submersibles – built a submersible, tested it for a few minutes, and expected everyone to worship him as a hero. In reality, the sub wouldn’t have fit through the cave where it needed to, no one was willing to risk the lives of a bunch of school...
During World War Two, the OSS (Office of Strategic Services) was the primary US clandestine operations organization. It was responsible for making all sorts of unique weapons, including these “Stinger” cigarette guns. They were single shot disposable .22 Short pistols.
The first pattern was contracted and manufactured entirely by the OSS, and 25,000 of them were manufactured early in the war. They proved to have a myriad of minor to moderate problems, though, including failures to fire and burst barrels. A second version was produced by the Ordnance Department in 1944, with a strengthened and improved design, and 25,500 of those were made.
I have not found any documentation of these being actually used, but then again not much documentation exists on the use of any OSS weapons. These sorts of things were often provided to infiltration agents who might never be heard from again, or dropped to partisan or resistance groups who weren’t exactly writing field reports on their ...

Well, right now Brownell's has pages and pages of replacement parts.
The lamestream media told you:
All these crazed permit holders carrying dangerous loaded semi-automatic handguns that spray bullets are nothing but bloody danger waiting to happen on our streets. The whole idea is just a gun-lobby scheme to sell more guns and make the gun manufacturers richer at the cost of our children's lives. If it was legal we would have the whole batch of them lined up against a wall and shot, which would be a good thing, they are just devil's pawns, if the devil was real.
The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:
As gun owners know, CCW-permit holders are in the smallest demographic group for the commission of crime of virtually any ambulatory group of Americans. Self-educated and supremely conscious of the dire ramifications of using firearms in any situation, they are extremely reluctant to draw a firearm and use it unless it is absolutely necessary and justifiable. So-called news-media experts didn't get the memo.
Firearm trade magazines carry regular columns detailing the common and righteous use of firearms in self defense, and though these t...

My friend Claude Werner recently wrote an article where he postulated most shooters don’t do any real structured practice with their firearms. They plink or play, but they generally don’t perform drills designed with realistic standards in order to improve performance. In the article, Claude talked about sharing details and photos of his practice routines to give novice shooters an idea about how they might better spend their practice time.
I think that is a wonderful idea. I plan on sharing the drills I shoot in my weekly practice sessions. Hopefully, you will get a little value out of my posts and come up with some new drills to make your own practice sessions more effective.
My stated practice plan this year was to begin each session with the ...

The launch of Apollo 11 took place on July 16, 1969. For those of you who don’t remember, it was the first Apollo mission to land men on the moon.
This is Saturn V launch-pad footage from that day. 16mm film at 500 frames per second. 8 minutes plus is about 30 seconds of real time. I think it is fairly interesting.
I love that video because there is expert commentary, but not everyone agrees with me. So here’s a link to a video that is a compilation of views from various cameras, including the control room, and the audience on site at Cape Canaveral.
A recent flood of images from the excellent Turkish defense armaments based Twitter account Aybars have revealed that Turkish infantrymen are receiving the latest variant of the 7.62x51mm NATO MPT76 as a Designated Marksman’s Rifle.

It's not "OUR" fault that people who should not own guns have not reliably been caught during Instant Background Checks.
The Infinite Wisdom of the American public has often pointed their fingers at legitimate firearms owners for "Mass Shootings" over the years; but recent information suggests that governmental agencies who are responsibility for updating the list of forbidden firearms purchasers have not been doing the job; the embedded article points right back to them.
"THEM" .. is the folks responsible for religiously maintaining current information on the Database which registers and tracks felons and madmen.
