Sheeeeesh, forgot to add, the hostage targets is the gold standard for LEO snipers. Most police shoot at 100y or less. Today, those shots are being practiced at 600/800y. Unaware of any REAL deal shots taken at that distance. We liked melons. Left no doubt when you hit.

Good work CI.

Good on you for practice clutch shooting. Best to punch paper, at those close distances. Many years ago, I was shooting a sniper comp. on the third day, we had the option of shooting a tennis ball hung on a string, at 100y, 17% downhill grade. With minor wind.

Everybody was given the option, I was in 4th, and didn’t hesitate, the points offered if I hit was substantial. If I missed, o well. Carpa Diem. I was the only one to shoot.

I hit, and carried 2nd.overall.

The shots in your head. Know your kit, call your shot, put it where you called it. Your pellet gun is the perfect way to become very proficient.

Finished Red Cliffs, yesterday morning. Interesting read, not what I had anticipated. A bold move for Bracken, think he pulled it off. I’m a sailboat guy, have four, any sea adventure is good for me.

This book focus’s on the Red Cliffs Of Zerhan, which is a real place in Morocco, down near what use to be known as Spanish Sahara. Pirates, kidnapped girls, sinking, and saving the girls. Good read.

From 1979 to 1983 I was stationed in ROTA Spain. I use to spend a lot of time in Morocco, from central to northern Morocco. This book sparked my memories so I’ve started to re visit my time their.

Matts book triggered a bucket list moment for me. Tickets round trip are 1300.00 cheap. My pass ports current, and I have friends who have retired their, to possibly stay with.

Don’t know if Mrs. Williams would enjoy a trip their, things have clearly changed.

While taking care of business, I was mugged by literally 500.000 Miskitos, ? These things were as big as small Cessna airplanes. I had so many bites I had to sit on a soft pellow.

I have PTSD, from that mugging.

From day one on our prepper adventure, I’ve kept at least 360 rolls of TP in the big preps. A barrel cut in half, slid under a plywood hol is handy. If you can’t bury it, you must burn it.if not your creating a health hazard.

I was first aware of him mid 80s, as their is a famous navy recruiting poster of that era, with Matt Bracken shooting a Ingram MAC -10 sub pistol with a Sonics suppressor attached.

Matt war initially EOD/UDT, and transitioned when SEAL teams and UDT were co assigned early mid 80s.

Matt is a very out spoken patriot, who is not shy about the direction he sees the US going.

June 24, 2017 Dirk Williams 0

A prepper book by Old Navy SEAL, Matt Bracken.

The leftist Govt, has changed the Constitution at a Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia.

Parts of the NW and Texas have said BS, the Govt brings in Troops from Eurasian Soviet Union to Tennessee, Kentucky and a couple other states, to stop the citizens of those states from rebellion.

A massacre happens, and is covered up by leadership within theDHS home land security, and the White House. The Black President, an ex community organizer is pushing hard for this passification, before he tries to reel in the NW and Texas under the new constitution.

———————————————————————————————————————
This read is bitter sweet, no doubt written with the Obama admin in control. A small group make a huge difference, causing those in the military to take a stand for our nation.

9/10 rating for me, the story line is parallel to historical events being carried out as I write this. This is jusy a possible scenario, in which our republic is possibly headed.

If your from Louisiana, Kentucky Alabama, you will be able to pin point locations easily, for tracking strategies.

Good book, I’ve read everything Brackens done. A great writer, and a real deal patriot. Lives in Florida, and is very vocal about the direction the US is headed. Purchased off of amazon for my kindle.

General Preparedness Discussion • Re: Russia Threatens U.S. Planes after U.S. shoots down SU-2

June 20, 2017 Dirk Williams 0

Any military aircrew here can attest to this age old tradition. Foreign combatants have historically flown close, as the US combat/Intercept AC have.

From 1979 to 1983, I flew as aircrew in EP3E aircraft. Our counter pats in the AF, were the RC135, like the one jumped yesterday. I can recall two incidents that I personally witnessed. When the ice was breaking up, in the north of Norweign, we were jumped by two foxbats ” mig25s” .

The only place an EP can be jumped from is straight down and aft. While coking and joking with the pilots two 25s, came straight up about 100 yards going straight up. Scared the poop out of me. To the p-3 drivers it was just another day.

Anyways the foxbats played with us, and it seemed to be in good natured gamesmanship. I recall one wingtip to wing tip, the foxbats driver was holding up either a Pepsi can, or a coke ca, and laughing.

Media spins these incidents for ratings.

I’d be surprised if that RC135 was flying without a migcap, or fighter escorts fairly close, it’s just how it’s done anymore.

As for us shooting down the SU22, seems to me that’s an act of war!

Why are we even their?

Amused to awake to this news. The shooter a left wing progressive kook, shot roughly 50/100 rounds into a senate baseball team practice this morning, in VA. Hit one official, may have wounded a couple, not sure.

Used an AK style rifle. A trump hater. What a douche bag.

Was amused to listen to all those brave soles talk about how they dealt with being under fire.

Frankly these men were lucky, this shooter wasn’t a determined disciplined shooter. They ran into a dugout, of all things. Talk about fish in a barrel.

Anyways the media’s putting out all kinds of dumb stuff, in their quest to be first, with half truth aand perception stories. Don’t worry, they will recant tomorrow, when they re distribute the story.

Both great ideas. Another thought, or approach. Col Jeff Cooper, lived at Quartzite ? aZ, and had a custom house built on site. The good Col, had many I ovations incorporated into his home, for defensive integrity.

The idea and later he turned it into reality was a metal sliding gat in the hall way leading down to his residences bedrooms. The door or metal fence slid into the wall. At night Jeff would poo poo the gate and lock it.

Cooper was an innovator, his idea for this was simple. The bedroom hallway was on the second story. The hallway was long, and he stragically placed the gate, 3/4s of the way down the hallway, or towards the bedroom.

The rationale was to,make the retreat distance the killing field. So Cooper built a artful metal,sliding gate which was secured in the wall and pulled across the hallway on the bedroom side of the hallway.

Coopers imtent wasn’t to keep the bad guys out forever, just slow them down and draw them into his kill zone. Col, Cooper also built a bullet proof fighting position in his closet, which when entered looked directly,down the hallway into the secured gate.

Giving Cooper or his family the oppertunity to fix the problem.

Cooper wrote of this gate and shared pictures on his site way back then. I’ve considered it, just never gotten around to it.

Just sharing another idea. Admittedly the above ideas are far more practical.

Guns • Re: Curved verses Straight triggers for the AR Platform

June 10, 2017 Dirk Williams 0

Could care less what’s fashionable or not. If it works for you, is practically priced, and enhances your target group at versos distances, then you should consider one.

I’ve got CMC, straights, and am very pleased with their added performance. I shot faster, at all distances. Their is a trade off. I do not like the install set up. The pins walk when shooting. I changed out the pins to a style that screws into themselves, a little blue lock tight ang I’m happy with the fixed pin problem. The upgraded pins are an added expense, like 20.00. Something to consider.

I’ve also got the grisselles straight triggers, again faster, smoother FOR ME. I’ve got short fingers. These triggers are now 230/250.00 not cheap. I’ve had mine for years now.

All my m4s, and now all my sniper rifles have straight triggers. I use to spend a fair amount of time ” stoning” my stock triggers relieving the trigger pull pressure,,and just to clean up any blemishes.

Remember if you,stone the trigger to much your guns will dump 30 rounds in a little over a second. It’s illegal as an auto, and for me, I’m not into,auto or machine guns. I carried some sort of,full,auto rifle from day one of my career. Much prefer a solid semi with a great trigger in it. ,

Like driven said their is a physiological mental “step up” when you go to,these triggers.” For the average shooter, which is me anymore, I don’t know that I’d spend the money,,if it ment my kids went without shoes or,a,family nessity.

I am in the middle of a slow build,right now, an M4 pistol.

VLTOR upper.
Noveske lower.
CMC straight trigger,
A three hole full auto,BCG, ” the third hole sets the dwell time to hang up a bit longer allowing a better gas dump, for recoil.
VLTOR shorty spring and heavy buffer. It’s got,a number, it’s VLTORs heaviest spring and duffer.
Colt spring kits.
Crane ring upgrade.
H&K hooded sights for aft.
T1 red dot.
Also using the VLTOR for end and gas block, pinned.
Gem tech muzzle break, to except a genre H suppressor.
Magpul furniture.

I’ve got,a,magpul stock, but this is a pistol,,which would make it a 10 inch and illegal without a tax stamp. Not into illegal weapons, so I’m thinking this thru.

I’m actually looking for,a,buffer rude that houses a slide in stock very simlar to the H&K MP4/5.

I’ve found a couple they just look flimsy. Looking for,a,better,built one. And I don’t mind spending the money if it’s what I want.

I have gas buster I took off of one of my m4s. I’ll apply the gas buster and leave it in the gas reducer selection position. I,discovered that by using the GB, the heavy bolt with the extra hole for,dwell reduction, and the VLTOR heavy spring and heavy buffer,,with a 3 pound trigger, the rifle displays almost zero recoil.

The VLTOR foremd will extend past the muzzle so when I spin the can onto the Quick disconnect it gives the rifle/ pistol and unusual look. Like a foremd with a can sticking out of it.

O yea using a Noveske Afgan heavy 10/12 inch barrel. (Censored word. I’m a Potty mouth) barrels, and I’m still kicking around making this rifle a piston gun. I’m not,big on them, but still,considering them. ,

I do own an H&K 416 piston m4. I’m not real happy with this rifle, just feels funky to me. This HK is the go to,rifle of all the tier 1 teams military wide. Mine is the civilian version.

Much prefer my others.

Nice!. Some dam good and sturdy kit on your new rifle. The VOLTOR fore end is bolt on. And solid kit. The fore grip actually bolts to the pitinny and reduces ” flex” in the upper receiver. Straight triggers, are the ticket for a better trigger press.

The hooded HK style sights are superior to the standard AR built ones. These sights are rock solid.

Dan, in looking at the pic, I can’t tell if your gas block is ” pinned” or using set screws from the bottom.

It’s critical to use a set pin for durability longevity.

plane crash non SHTF, body check, on myself. Triage and address injuries I have, with materials salvaged on site.

If capable start rescue ops for others. Set up a staged medical location close but not to close to the downed bird.

Critical care of fellow passengers first. Then crash site review for water food, blankets, medical etc etc. this parts in no particular order, you will know the value of the stuff found and how it can help the collective group.

You need to understand what you find will be carnage. Bodies ripped in half, I really doubt their will be many survivors, if your one of them. That God almighty, for he surely has a plan for you.

Also try and identify a water source ASAP. All comes down to where you crash, what season of the year you crash.

Train wreck the same in same order.

If it’s SHTF and you recognize it. I’m doing what I can for others in a three hour window. Then I’m walking out.

i no longer fly anymore, I do not agree to the rules our govt has put on us. I do intend to start traveling by train for leisurely trips with my wife. We both carry bug out bags. We recently purchased a huge suit are with off-road wheels. Very sturdy.

Example, was in Reno Nv, Memorial Day weekend. In my suitcase on wheels I had a Kel tec 16 shot shotgun, 50 rounds of buck. One glock 30 and one glock 21. Holsters and mag pouchs. Four mags apiece, Kukri.

,pvs14, flashlights, water filter. Boots comfortable pants and layers, plus a wool bee you.
Extra batteries for the nods.

I know a lot of kit. Understand this. We were in the Nugget casino, for me to be in a casino, is like a fish out of water. I do not go to cities, or big venues. It’s just not in my DNA.

All this kit, is to insure I’m able to extract my family from the hordes. Every gang banger on earth was at the nugget that weekend.

My suv is a rolling QRF. I intentionall park on the bottom floor of the parking garage, always near the exit, closest to the unlikely escape route.

Food water and even more firepower are in the car. If you think I’m paranoid,I’m not, I’m prepared for whatever comes my way.

Example, was in Reno Nv, Memorial Day weekend. In my suitcase on wheels I had a Kel tec 16 shot shotgun, 50 rounds of buck. One glock 30 and one glock 21. Holsters and mag pouchs. Four mags apiece, Kukri.

,pvs14, flashlights, water filter. Boots comfortable pants and layers, plus a wool bee you.
Extra batteries for the nods.

I know a lot of kit. Understand this. We were in the Nugget casino, for me to be in a casino, is like a fish out of water. I do not go to cities, or big venues. It’s just not in my DNA.

All this kit, is to insure I’m able to extract my family from the hordes. Every gang banger on earth was at the nugget that weekend.

My suv is a rolling QRF. I intentionall park on the bottom floor of the parking garage, always near the exit, closest to the unlikely escape route.

Food water and even more firepower are in the car. If you think I’m paranoid,I’m not, I’m prepared for whatever comes my way.

Terrorism & other Man made disasters • Re: Another terror attack in the UK

June 5, 2017 Dirk Williams 0

If you don’t recognize this patten for what it is. You need to look deeper. We are daily giving up our freedoms, to the govt, the NWO, for perceived protections. This is aganda driven. If your expecting your govt to protect you, your in for a rough ride.

Keep in mind our Supreme Court has stated that Law Enforcement officers have zero duties to protect human life, their job is to investigate, make arrested and to protect the INFASTRUCTURE. I think that means protect them!.. Yea right.

So if your not prepared daily to protect yourself, your family, you may or may not be saved from those bad ol jihadists, or armed career criminals the courts are freeing from the prisons on a daily basis.

I just got a legislative update from my Oregon legislature. In Jan 2018. ALL drug crimes in Oregon are going to be misdemeanors? All possession sales etc etc. pathetic at best.

I see in short order this becoming the norm across the US. While I’m a big Teump guy, I’m also a realist. I’ve doubled my preps since his swearing in.

Tic Toc.

Guns • Re: Night Vision Distributors

June 5, 2017 Dirk Williams 0

I own four sets of PVS 14s, all gen three auto gyrated etcetc. I also own two sets of PVS-7s, two into one lenses. I purchased two 14s from TNVC, 3500.00 a pop.

I purchased two other sets of 14s, from a small start up company of Army Rangers in Seattle. These sets were Referbished 14s. I think they cost like 2500.00 a pop.

The PVS-7s, came from the ranger company aswell.

I recently inquired about another set for an associate. Was sad to learn their doing SURPLUS stuff, but not NV right now.

Your going to pay 3000.00 plus per set, so be prepared.

I recently hosted a dog and pony show, where’s some friends who are trainers for ATN, brought up some of the new ” White Light” models of night vision. New technology, and pretty slick.

” no green background, it’s white and appeared to be great quality stuff. I was told that the switch to this new generation of NODS, will be slow, due to costs, but that a bunch of the currant Gen III stuff will flood the market.

I’d like to share this, and I said it here before. Night vision is an absolute force multiplier. The ability to see and shoot hundreds of yards accurately in the darkest of nights, is a big deal.

Add a suppressor and an IR laser like the D-BAL-2 to a rifle any your light years ahead of the program.

The PVS14 is 3 k plus. The Suppressor is 1000.00 plus the tax stamp 200.00. The D-bal-2 is 900.00. The package is worth every penny.

I have three rifles with these set ups on them. Two m4-S and a Fn 308. The 308 can be switched to one of my m-14s.

The value added to the package is incredible. I can shoot others from 100s of yards away, leaving almost zero sound signature. Almost zero flash signature, and track my foes movement step for step.

Out of ALL of my preps, these rifle systems are perhaps the most important in terms of protecting our survival package. If you can’t defend it, it ain’t yours for long.

The psychological advantage added by these systems will be worth the costs.

So if you believe bad times are coming, you owe it to your families to be able to protect them, and your preps from raiders or others bent on making your kit, theirs.

I made the choice to scrap with anybody in my turf for my stuff, to include city county state and federal representatives.

Incidentally, the listed agencies at least here, currantly do not possess the abilities I have available. The State and Fed’s, have these items just not locally.

Keep in mind that Bight Vision devices can view other night vision devices. And IR lazer, which leads right back to your D-bal-2 in a firefight. Also the Dbals have green visible Lazers which work much better then red lazer in the sun light.

” personally I don’t see a need for Lazers in light, my sight package is for instant identification and targeting.

In the past 25 years I’ve used nods almost nightly. I actually had a set of PVS-21s hand reciepted to me may last three years as a deputy Sheriff. Most tier one military guys have never seen a set of those, truly remarkable.

I could drive as fast as I wanted 100 mph, on windy curve mountain roads, with zero lights on, with zero perception differences.

Gunns my friend, I guess so,etchings better then nothing. The gen one stuff does work, if it meets your needs, wonderful. In the late 80s, I had that stuff. I was greatful for it, saved my bacon more then once. The gen 3 and now gen 4 stuff is measurably by large margins better and better made, solid.

A 300 y shot with a14 mounted on a good rifle is easy Peasy, I do it all the time.

Should you get a 14 also purchase a mount called a TM14 mount, from TNVC, these mount directly behind your red dots, and co witness, easily.

When you shoulder your rifle and look thru the 14, you pick up the red dot, centered. It’s quick and sturdy.

Hope this helps

Check In Here Hawaii Preppers • Re: North Korea/Hawaii?

April 25, 2017 Dirk Williams 0

While I have no connection to the islands, I would be interested to here what you learn. NK, is an interesting subject. I view NK, as a regional issue, not a global issue.

I also think the kid glove handling of this spoiled brat needs to stop. However I don’t think the NK people need to be spanked for this culls actions. One missle up his butt, should fix the problem.

Think it’s clear, its time for the two Koreas to be reunited, we live in a different time, with a different military plan and tools in place. A massive invasion of China via NK, is simply not in the cards. Old logicVS modern tools don’t make sense.,,

Frankly the citizens of NK would likely be greatful for getting rid of the cull, and the reintegration of the severed country.

Please keep us posted after you do your review,,would be interesting.,

General Preparedness Discussion • Re: Top 50 Places To Find Supplies After SHTF

April 16, 2017 Dirk Williams 0

Oops, I hadn’t returned to review this thread.

This information was from Intel and AARs, from agencies in that area. Those agencies were seemingly ok with the Koreans holding their turf. For those not knowing AAR= after action report.

I had just finished advanced SWAT, down their with LASD, and was tight with them, well at least a few of them. Over the years I’ve lost contact. I’m sure their mostly retired now. Great group of guys. An honor to work and train with them.

Anyways, who did the Intel review and penned the AAR, I don’t know other then it came thru LEO sources.

Hope this helps understand the chain and source. I read it, re read it, and developed my observations off of what was provided. Ive often wondered where the pics came from. They appear to,all be from the air, above, likey helo’s. However those guys were pretty slick, I would not be surprised if they already were using some sort of drones, even back then.

LASD and LAPD, were always cutting edge tool creators.

First Aid & Medicine • Re: Tinctures – please tell me more!

April 15, 2017 Dirk Williams 0

Swamp, yes the tincture is green, I don’t have an exact formula, I just fill a ball jar 3/4 full with cannibis, and fill to the top, Everclear, alcohol. Some folks slow boil the mixture.” I usually use the shake or cut off veg material. I’ve used just buds before, I personally can’t tell the difference when applying it externally on my joints.”

Another thing I do is, mix cannibis, and coconut oil “organic”, at low temps on the stove, I then apply the cocanut oil infused with cannibis into cupcake holders, those paper ones. I gift all of this stuff to the elderly, and Vets. I’m amazed at the amount of 70/80/90 year olds who understand the benefits. The other use for this coconut butter is making eatables, cookies, brownies, etc etc. I’ve never had much luck making eatables, I find it very difficult to regulate the THC content.

Some eatables are just right, and some are crazy high THC. I’m reluctant to make eatables for others.

I took an old navy buddy to Seattle earlier this week. I gave him a few Bags of bud. He has Parkinson’s, and has the brain implants, dropped him off, he went home where his wife made brownies for him. He called and told me my cannibis was way to strong. Which is true, it 27.5 THC, via a certified lab test results.

All I could do was laugh. I’ve told him multiple times to only eat 1/4 of a browny, and wait, to determine medical benifits, if it’s not enough, eat another 1/4 of the browny. He eat an entire brownie. When Bob invests cannibis, he stops shaking completely, for most of the day. If I hadn’t seen the results for myself, I would not have believed it. I have a few Parkinson’s patients I help out. Each has the same results after eating, or smoking. It’s a miricle in my mind.

One of the issues I’ve had has been in the manicuring of the buds. I manicure all the vegetation off, but don’t cut any of the tri combs or crystals off. That’s medicine, the industry standard is to trim the bud down to a tight marketable bud.

For my stated application I see zero needs to cut roughly 1/3 of the tri combs off, as I don’t market this stuff, I gift it to those in need.

I’ve found both formulas to work well after rubbing either the tincture, or the coconut butter on a stiff or aching body joint.

Swamp if you need help let me know. I’m always willing to help.

I make a different kind of tincture. I learned this from the older generation of migrant farm workers. They place cannibis in alcohol and let it site in a dark place for three weeks.

They then dump/strain the plant material, and use the liquid on their joints after a long day in the fields. Soothed their aches.

I made a huge mistake, I was a young deputy sheriff. I would find these guys tincture/ medicine, and pour it out, cuz it was against the law. I had a group of the “elders” approach me one day, asking to talk.

This group asked me to hear them out and I did. They explained the how, why, and history of their tincture.

I told them it was the law, but I would work with them. I never poured a tincture jar out ever again.

I use those wise old Mexicans formula these days. I use “ever-clear”, and cannibis, in the same soaking jar for three weeks. I then rub it on aching joints, for medical benifits. Don’t laugh, it really works.
