Wait A Minuit; I thought the hole Idea behind the AR15 was to put a lot of amo down range. While your partner with the 308 or 30-06 takes them out. I didn’t know you were supposed to aim and hit targets with one. Back to the range I will go………….

I look at it this way, the demogods that don’t like the immigration pause, not ban, should stand up and say they will take them into their own homes for a year and see how they live and react to the society of the U.S.. If all goes well and none are decapatated, then they will go through the veting process.

I have yet to see any holeywood morons, naney POO POO polocies, chuck dry my tears sutmer as to house them, but they want us to bring them into the U.S. and house them and pay their bills. NOT FOR ME!!!!!!!!!

Then you have the left wing dead head mayors of ny, chicago, la, sf, phi, and more who want to house them but want more money to do it and of course it’ll be on my dime and yours. What happened in canada is just the beginning because people who work for a living are tired of it, that’s why DJT is now the President of the USofA. The demogods are commiting political suiscide, they will loose more offices the next election but are too stupid to know it.

Went to town and bought a really nice, used Jeep stroller for the niece for $10. Niece saw it advertised on our local swap Facebook page and asked me to pick it up.

While we were in town, we got an oil change on the new-to-us Honda Pilot we bought last year.

Got our taxes done. Husband used to do them, but we prefer the accountant now because he’s up on the latest tax issues.

And today, we finally cut the cord…to satellite TV. Husband has decided to use the money to invest in some of the freeze dried foods, we’ve never used that resource before. Emergency Essentials has sales each month on stuff, and so he bought a few things to try out.

I think the lefts frustrations is they are discovering Trump using Alinsky’s doctrine against them.

They are discovering that it’s hard to protest a week old issue,,when their are 20/30 others issues since that old issue. Their grasping at remaining relevant, keeping that moment in real time space.

They look like the village idiots they are.

To summarize for your left leaners

It’s hard to focus on a target moving at light speed. Good luck!

If you have to go the AR15 route due to budget constraints in the anemic 5.56/.223, do try to get EPR ammo. It overcomes the limitations, deficiencies, and the massive performance failures of the M855 ammo.

Granted you will likely suffer barrel ware, and possible parts failure due to the higher pressure.

“So what is your story,” the man asked Dan.

Dan sat at the picnic table, his feet propped up, a glass of tea in front of him, and a woman with a shot gun aimed in his general direction.
“Well,” Dan took another sip of tea and told his story.

At the first break in the weather, Dan decided to head out. He was not really attached to his house, bought it more for convenience commuting to work than the nearly hour drive it was from his parents home.
Besides, after the firewood ran out, he burned every piece of furniture tying to stay warm over the winter. The only place he could actually sit was on the toilet, but that was only if he brought in snow melt to flush. Made for a very cold toilet. He had a co-worker who ran a hot water line to his toilet so his wife would have a warm seat in the winter. As stupid as it sounded, Dan relished the idea. But he also just wanted to be warm again. The house never got above fifty degrees since the first snow fell. The old fire place was not very efficient, even with the modifications he made.
He stopped in at his one remaining neighbors to let them know he was leaving. He might come back if things return to normal. It was a big IF, and they all knew it. They thanked him, as if it was not for Dan’s hunting skills none of them would of made it through the winter. As much as Dan hated parting with it, he gave them the .22LR rifle and ammunition he had for it. He could not carry it and the AR15 too. It would only weigh him down. They wished him luck and he was on his way.
The roads were clear for the most part. A few cars here and there, pulled over to the side of the road. All of them empty, including their gas tanks. As he walked, the quite was strange to him, only a few birds and the sound of the wind.
Dan passed houses along the road. A few had smoke coming out of their chimneys. He even saw movement in a few. But no one came out.
He had been walking most of the day, and decided to set up camp while he still had a few hours of light, night still coming early this time of year. Dan made camp off the road, back into a grove of trees next to a field. He light a fire using his blast match, made himself some hot coffee from the packet in his MRE and ate as he watched the fire. He covered himself in a tarp and slept a dreamless sleep.
Dan awoke as the sun broke the horizon, feeling better than he had in months. He did not know if it was the walking, or sleeping outside, but he considered himself lucky. As he pulled his boots on, he noted hot spots on the back of his heels and one on his big toe. He grimaced as he laced up his boots.
Camp broken, Dan set out, tossing a hand full of GORP into his mouth. What he would do for a Egg McMuffin, and a cup of real coffee right about now. He found a small, shallow pool of water to refill his bladder and filter the water.
He checked his GPS for the time. It was just after noon, when he came up to the bridge. It was fortified on both ends with elevated positions. The bridge itself someone had placed large vehicles forming a chute at a ninety degree angle, making any transit by car slow going. Two emplacements over looked the chute.
Dan walked up and stopped at the base of one emplacement. Someone came out to meet him. The man had a AR15 held at the ready.
“What do you have to pay for passage?”
“What?”
“What do you have to pay for using the bridge? No payment, no passage! Food! Fuel! Ammo! What do you have?” Dan could see several weapons pointed at him from the emplacements.
“Ok! I have some ammo. How much to cross?”
The man seemed to settle down some, “Ten rounds will do. We don’t gouge anyone.”
Dan nodded as if he understood, removed his magazine, slid out ten rounds and gave it to the man. The man nodded, turned and raised a hand to the others and shouted, “All clear!” He turned back to Dan and said, “You may go. And good luck to you.” He offered his hand.
Dan nodded taking his hand, replying, “Good luck to you too.”
With the bridge behind him, Dan pressed on to his parents house, down the road.

No. starting fluid is MOSTLY ether but also has light aromatic hydrocarbons (VOCs) that are very hazardous to ones health. They target the liver and central nervous system primarily but also cause other problems.
However…
It can be easily manufactured using a variety of methods. The simplest is alcohol condensation. I checked as i was writing this and there are youtube videos on this very subject. The one i watched is simple, safe and straightforward…boil ethyl alcohol and pass the vapour through a hot sulphuric acid bath and then through a reflux condenser. Google reflux condenser, vigreux (sp?) column or packed column. this is the only specialised piece of equipment that is needed. One can easily make this as well once the design is understood.

The only caveat is that ALL heat sources MUST be oil bath electrical. Any spark or flame or even electric coil glowing any shade of red will likely result in disasterous conflagration.

I would be happy with just a majority, in either chamber. The RINOS out there all over the news saying what Pres. Trump is doing is wrong need to change the letter after their name. I have even seen pics of some out protesting. For all intents and purposes, those are dims, not Rs.
As far as egging the other side on, it wouldn’t matter what Pres. Trump did. He could have rolled out the welcome mat and the dims would be protesting for national security. There is nothing he can do, that isn’t going to enrage the left. The media is going to focus on the left making it look like the entire country is protesting. Now, granted I don’t play in liberal circles, but I don’t know one single person that says we need to bring in more refugees or keep the borders open.

The rinos all over are mostly mccain and flimsy graham. I have never seen two people who are more concerned about getting in front of a camera to demonstrate how dumb they are.

At the very worst, I should be able to mail letters from my cousin’s children to the guy who killed their Mom. This is a great deal better than nothing at all. I’d bet he would read them too. Lot of temptation in a letter, from his circumstances and perspective.

At best, and I expect this to be the outcome, he will agree to see them in person if they ever want to do that, and hear them out. He won’t like it, but my cousin’s daughter looks like my cousin made over, about the age he probably first fell in love with her and I do not think he will be able to resist a chance to SEE her.

Time will tell. Probably take quite a while. I am patience personified on things like this. I don’t really have anything invested in the outcome. I just have to know I have done EVERYTHING I could possibly do to be able to live comfortably in my own skin. Having done that is enough for me.

The background here is that this guy killed my 32 year old cousin. She was leaving him and if he couldn’t have her, he didn’t want anyone else to have her either. Drugs were involved, and I will always strongly suspect that if we had not criminalized addiction, my cousin would be alive today.

I told the whole tale in this thread, if you search “trial” in this thread it should all come right up if you missed it and really want to read about it. I can’t recommend it myself. It was hands-down the worst experience of my life.

I did speak after the trial. I told him I would be writing to him, representing Genny’s kids. Two of them were not allowed to go to any part of the trial and the third one was only allowed to attend the sentencing, where he did get the chance to speak his mind to the guy who killed his Mom. I know what that feels like, to be excluded from the process and denied the opportunity to speak and I want more than that for the children of my cousin, my friend.

Anyway, here’s the letter. I’m including the first series of posts from our house fire thread with it as that’s where the material I plan to send is coming from.

Hello Gene.

I am Me Myself. I’ve included a photo of myself taken the last day of the trial, so you will know who I am. I spoke after the trial. I talked about Genny’s children and said I felt they might want to see you sometime. You may recall they were not allowed to attend the trial. At that time they did not want to see you but of course they have had some time to think and now they do feel they will want to speak to you at some point. I doubt they know if they want to do this in person or write letters right now.

So here I am. I am asking that you allow me to be on your visitor’s list so that I can be with the children if they ever want to see you. I am offering a straight-up deal. I will send you mail each week for however long you want if you will do this for me. I will continue to do this after the children write or visit, if they decide to do so.

I think you may agree by now that it is the right thing to do. Genny would want that for her children and I know you loved her. It is something you can do for her, even now.

We have documented our personal journey after a fire at our home a couple years ago. We share about our work to rebuild our off-grid lifestyle, our work at our fabrication shop where we build industrial equipment and pretty things too, our pets, hobbies and interests, our losses and our triumphs. It has not all been fun and games but we have shared honestly and worked hard to find our best attitude and focus on the positive. If a particular topic such as our industrial builds are a real drag for you, say so and I’ll keep it very brief on whatever bores you.

If you like, I can keep any letters you might want to write about what happened, for Genny’s children when they are ready for them. If you do want to write I ask that you consider if you are OK with my sharing your letters in our journal online. It would be an opportunity for you to share your perspective and it might help others more than either of us realize.

Genny’s Mom wants to send you a picture of Genny and might like me to do that for her. We will be making a marker for Genny’s grave and I can send a picture of that when we manage to get it done.

If I do not hear from you at all, I’ll just keep sending letters. I include pages from the start to give you some idea of what I am offering. I was in the military and I know what it meant to me to receive regular letters at mail call.

Even if YOU are not interested in our letters, they might be something you can trade with someone who is interested, to get other things you do want. I am betting that if I go first, you will be willing to stand up when and if I ever call upon you because the children want to speak to you.

Obviously if you do NOT want to be bothered by me, you can just send a short note saying so and I will stop sending you mail. I may check in every year or so to see if you’ve changed your mind but I have no interest in being a pest to you at considerable expense in time and materials to myself.

January 31, 2017 rj5156 0

I have talked to people about writing inmates and find that many are afraid. They fear that an inmate, armed with their address, might just come hunt them down when they are released.

Again, I believe I understand far more about the mental and emotional state inmates are operating from than they do themselves. Introspection is rare and rarer still in that population. To date, only the introspective thinkers in a given population have been interesting in corresponding with me over time. I am no easier to socialize with in letters than I am in person.

Also, it has been my personal experience that while inmates might be fascinated with how I live, they are largely city folks. Dad told me often that the inmates he spoke to are TERRIFIED of rural areas. They are afraid of rednecks with their dogs and guns, they fear wild animals, and they do not want any part of all that.

Further, when inmates are released, they have very limited resources as a general rule. Even if they wanted to, they’d have a hard time even GETTING to a rural location. In actual fact, inmates I’ve corresponded with over the years are only grateful and do not represent a threat in my long experience.

Sadly, many of them are not capable of sustaining anything long-term anyhow. They have lost so much already that their biggest fear is getting attached because they expect to lose. It is normal that an inmate might write for a few months and then, in fear of rejection, abruptly stop. Sometimes they withdraw over time and then ask ME to stop writing. It sucks to see what you’re missing and many find it easier to do the time without outside contact, no matter how they long for it.

Almost without exception they “pass me around” when this happens, and ask if I would write to ANOTHER inmate they know, that has followed my letters and wants to write to me. I am sure they do this as a way to improve their own position in some manner and I’ve always been fine with this.

Remarkably, I have never attracted any attempts at a con job. The folks who have chosen to correspond with me over time are only longing for someone to TALK to about things that matter to them. They don’t find much to work with for that in the prison environment, and those who do want meaningful exchanges all seem to find and know each other.

To this group my letters seem to represent a lifeline. I’ve been there, waiting and hoping at mail call, myself. I KNOW how much it matters to be reliable, not to let them down and I’ve been good for it over very long periods of time in writing inmates.

All I can really do is offer them my acceptance and approval for their efforts, in an attempt to give them the courage to try again when they get out of prison. I’ve done this over and over because I understand that people who have lost their ability to believe that others will give them any chance at all are doomed to spend their lives in prison.

In return, they tell me everything. If they did it, they say so. They tell me why too. They talk of what they have learned, how they hope to suceed in spite of it all. They analyze themselves, speak of their childhood and life experiences.

They send me remarkable, hand-made gifts. Things like drawings of things they have learned I like, such as flowers, painstaking colored by hand using pigments obtained by carefully scraping magazines with color pictures. Really amazing things. I treasure these.

The rare bird that sustains ongoing correspondence is already so far beyond those who can’t do this that they truly represent no threat at all. They are even less likely to turn up at my home if it were possible for them to do so. After they bare their souls to me in their letters – and if they write over any length of time this is what they want, someone to SEE and HEAR them – they do NOT want to face me in person. They are only practicing with me. Flapping their wings at the edge of the nest in preparation for flight.

When they are nearing release, they thank me. Then they cut me off. I am, after all, a reminder of times they only want to forget about on their release. Again, they generally seem to have a friend who would love to correspond with me when they ditch me.

Once in a very great while, they do keep my address and write a time or two to tell me if they are doing well with their new lives. I’ve mentioned that I pray for them. I sure hope they are all flying easily and confidently now, enjoying all the success and happiness they can believe in. The psychology of the whole situation is just sad.

The biggest stake I have in this round is re-visiting the events of the past couple years. Peeling the onion. Working through it so I can get on with it. In the end, it’s mostly about me of course.

Finally reached a point where I feel like I can afford to start writing to the guy who killed my cousin. The timing will likely work in my favor. He’s had time to get through the shock to the point he will be bored, lonely, and acutely aware of it by now. I have had time to get through the most intense emotions myself too.

I had posted about this before. Below what I have finally come up with for the first letter. I had stated that I felt like I understood far more about where this guy is at mentally and emotionally than he probably does, and I expect this is still the case. If you’ve read my recent posts from “Clank” you’ll know what I mean by that now.

He would not have been in any condition to make simple decisions right after the verdict, and I expect he will be less able to do so now. This is why I’ve decided I will just send him letters unless he takes the initiative to write and ask me to stop. I do not think he can do this and I believe the weight of ongoing letters as a specific deal will build over time and add to my cause.

I seriously doubt he gets many visitors – or much mail – if any. I think there is a pretty fair chance he might agree to see Genny’s kids just to have company and relieve his boredom. I’ve said it before, but if I can manipulate him to do what I want and let the kids speak their piece, I do not care WHY he does it. This is about getting what I want, not about him.

Note I have gone with an implied threat of STOPPING mail if he does not hold up his end of the bargain I’m manipulating him to obtain here. Can’t work with someone who doesn’t have anything to lose and he’s got to HAVE something before he’s got it to lose.

My letters have been remarkably popular with inmates. Whenever I have written to one – and I have written to many over the years – they have shared with many others. Anything to relieve the boredom, to help pass the eternal stretches of time is gold in prison currency. Thus I do think others will peer pressure him if it comes to crunch time.

I happen to know the guy loved the outdoors, bonus information. That should make many of the posts I send him more interesting to him. Additionally, nothing happens in a vacuum. If all he does is trade what I send to others who ARE interested to improve his own positions, our offerings will get around. He will share with someone if he elects to keep them, I’m sure. Thus, we can plant the seeds of a totally foreign life-view in a population that needs it most. A mind once opened never goes back.

The prison population has extremely limited options when they are released. They’re not going to get a high-paying job. Anything they might learn about how to live better on less might just improve their lives down the road. More importantly, our life-philosophy of choosing how we think about things is a concept that population needs to hear.

If ONE person who is exposed to what I send is able to benefit from it, I will count the effort as well-spent. In my personal experience, far more than one person gets involved when I write an inmate. It’s not all about the guy I am sending the letters to.

You and I where raised by people that beleave right was right and wrong was wrong, There is no gray area. Even back then my boys did not understand why I pushed them so hard. Made sure they did it the right way by the book with even a little extra. It was very gratifying that they both have told me many times scene then they now understand.

They where confused when I told them how things would turn out for a few of the specific problem kids that displayed many dark and evil sides and their parents supported that action. They tried to lead the whole troop in that direction. I even threw one of them out of the troop. He tried to lead a group of the boys in the theft of another troops property and destroy it, I got wind of it before it was completed then he refused to return it and make right for what they had done. The rest of them did that I gave him the choice, he refused so I felt I had no choice. ( not really sure I had the authority to do that) But no one questioned it. And a very few years later it turned out I was correct. I just hope and pray that every one here and everywhere had done enough to keep themselves safe. Buckle up it will be a rough ride.

Thank you Driven.

Until you mentioned it, it has never occurred to me to do a Kindle version.

Something I will have to consider.

I am glad you like what you have read so far. I try to keep it interesting, use conversations to set the scene, and keep it realistic.

They have so many good features that they can be trusted from the start to run well as is. My M&P 15 Sport II, but I chose to pimp royally before even shooting the thing. Runs 100% so modified. The SP-1 is the semi-junk AR-15 that gave the Civilian AR-15 a bad name.This is totally separate from the Vietnam M16 ammo failures that got people killed. with jammed weapons. In 1982 however, Eagle Arms introduced today ‘s AR-15. A sturdier and much more reliable weapon that changed many minds-mine included -bout Armalite.

So a question, similar to the OP, I’d like to get a base lower that I can then modify. In my case I’m interested in a 308 upper as a choice. What are reliable Makers for such a dual-use system

Two more years of this and Trump has a 60 seat majority in the Senate.

I would be happy with just a majority, in either chamber. The RINOS out there all over the news saying what Pres. Trump is doing is wrong need to change the letter after their name. I have even seen pics of some out protesting. For all intents and purposes, those are dims, not Rs.
As far as egging the other side on, it wouldn’t matter what Pres. Trump did. He could have rolled out the welcome mat and the dims would be protesting for national security. There is nothing he can do, that isn’t going to enrage the left. The media is going to focus on the left making it look like the entire country is protesting. Now, granted I don’t play in liberal circles, but I don’t know one single person that says we need to bring in more refugees or keep the borders open.
