Within the last few years there have been all sorts of terror attacks not only in the USA but increasingly in Europe and in other countries. Just what is this world coming to?

this vehicle and knife attacks have been common in Israel for years now – no media coverage to speak of – just Muslims attacking another body of people of another religion – could be a connection

Financial Issues • Re: Cryptocurrency for investments?

March 23, 2017 Antihero 0

In my mind anything we can save or spend anonymously without big brother dipping into it is a great thing. If you have extra cash laying around why not put some into crypto. Best case it just keeps on going up like it has been lately, Worst case it’s worth whatever cash you put into it. It might fluctuate a bit but based on its track record so far it’s a fairly safe bet it won’t lose value. And since it’s not tied to any government, economy or paper currency its not likely to be negatively affected by inflation like cash. As for after a shtf scenario we all know cash is going to be worthless after day 5 but crypto has the potential to retain its value, it may or may not be accessible after shtf depending on your preferred scenario but because it’s a global currency if shtf is localized to say just the northern hemisphere then in theory your crypto still has value on half the planet. And it is possible to get some limited Internet access over a ham radio. I don’t know if I would go throwing thousands into it maybe a thousand if you plan on spending and using your crypto cash for some purchases as well. I’m not an expert by any means but I’ve been looking into crypto for awhile. I would definitely think of whatever cash you convert into crypto as a long term conversion because converting back to cash can raise alot red flags for the irs, or even the fbi these days depending on the method and the amount your converting. It’s not like your debit card where if you want to buy something online you just go to the bank and deposit cash then change your mind and withdraw it the next day. It’s more like buying a foreign currency to buy things in another country it’s easier to only convert what your planing to spend or have on hand whIle traveling. Now for real world transactions say using crypto to pay a contractor or buy car on Craigslist . It’s possible as long as the other party uses crypto this limits the amount of people you can do business with since crypto simply isn’t as widely used as cash. And again if your thinking of using it like a debit card for gas grocery cable bill it doesn’t work that way unless your gas station is willing to be paid in crypto and that’s not going to happen any time soon. As for the wallet security I really don’t know I’m debating a hard key myself but haven’t looked into what happens if it gets damaged. I’m still in my research stage for alot of this crypto stuff I’ve only put in a couple hundred just to test the waters but this is what I’ve learned so far, hope it’s helpful……

Same here…Guinea pig is just WAY too much like a rat. Chickens, at least, are dual purpose…eggs as well as meat. Plus, I already HAVE the chickens!

Gardening • Re: Potatoes: Another Container Gardening Idea

March 23, 2017 IceFire 0

Years ago, when we were in PA, I grew potatoes in a couple of 50+ gallon plastic garbage cans that I’d poked a bunch of drain holes into. Filled the bottom 1/4 of the cans with soil, planted the taters, then as they grew, covered the growing plants with leaves and straw. Worked REALLY well, and harvesting was EASY!

Guns • Re: Mil, MOA or inches?

March 23, 2017 Dirk Williams 0

Old shooter here, early on we did MOA, two of my high end sniper rifles wear high end Schmidt & Bender PMII scopes, it’s what I know. I also shoot other rifles with the new Vortex Gen II scopes which are MRAD the 4.5x27x56 EBR-2C scopes. Cool kit! Have three now on long range guns, as I can’t justify purchasing the S&B PMIIs after I retired.

My group, decided to break away from the MOA scopes, to the MRAD to learn. We have set up our shoot computers to put the distance Dope out in either or, with one click.

We also have older Super Sniper scopes these are fixed power in 10 and 16 power. For the money, not a bad scope at all. These scopes are mildot. These scopes give me more trouble then any other. I just forget the formula’s and how to,measure with the Dots.

Frankly I need to be up to,speed on the MilDot system as their are a metric ton of those systems in the world.”

It’s my understanding ” and I could be wrong” but doesn’t the ” inch” is in reference to the actual scope tube size? I’m having a brain fa-t, and can’t remember.

Regardless of what scope your using, become informed on what you have. Don’t care if it’s a fifty dollar scope, or a 4 k scope, at the end of the day, it’s the guy driving the rifle and scope that is the difference.

I attended my first tru LEO sniper basic school with a gold ring leupold scope, with capped MOA turrets. I was pretty much laughed at by the BIG DOG AGENCIES, with the cool guy stuff.

The instructors just shook their heads, one stated he had never had anybody show up with something like this scope. One of the instructors actuall took his scope off his rifle for me to use.

I refused but I was honored the instructor would do such a thing. 45 guys in the class. I had a beard, wore OD green pants, a tan uniform top, and a low slung 1911, with four 10 round mags. Everybody else had cool,guy camo on. I stood out like a sore thumb.

I also only had 500 rounds of match grade 308, the class flyer called for 500 so that’s what the agency ordered and provided. ” we actually need 800″ on the newer class requirements.

I was shooting an old clapped out Remington 700 with a Krieger barrel with roughly 10k thru it. The barrel was clapped out.

I shot this rifle every day, while on patrol, EVERYDAY. I knew the rifle, the scope, I shot is 110 degree weather and -20 below weather, up hill down hill. In huge wind, and I would shoot out to 1200y, not the standard 100y standard.

Nobody wanted to,partner with me the first day, so I shot on my own, which is how I worked, was use to,doing all the duties of sniper ship by myself, got very proficient.

275 round the first day. My rifle my scope my kit purred like a kitten, I did my best, I was polite I listened to the city slickers helpful tips. Even shook my head up and down like I just discovered fire for the first time.

After noon the instructors were keeping a close eye on me, smiling and having instructor meetings, and pointing at me. I was beginning to,think I had a third eye or something wierd. I was rocking it, I was clearly in the top 2 percent of the class.

I ran out of bullets by end of day two. I was embarrassed, when I had to tell the instructors I had already shot my 500 rounds. I then showed then the class flyer we had received and the fact that it called for 500 rounds.

I came back to my table after lunch and their was a 1000 rounds of federal match grade 175 g ammo. I never learned where it came from, and I tried to pay for it, not ecptable. I was greatful.

I had not been shooting mthe 175 g bullets, but the 168 g match grade rifle, a huge difference, my dope cards were for the 168 match kings. So I had to compensate. I was allowed to shoot across a digital crono, to learn my a real bullet speed.

I made close friends that week, life long friends, all world class shooters, some from police agencies, some from tier one military groups, some from three letter agencies. In fact many years later I learned that the guys in that class all kicked in and purchased that 1000 rounds of ammo for me, out of their own pockets. I was honored.

I shot 42nd out of 45 that first class. I was voted most improved, which I stood up,and turned down. Their were kids in the class who made dramatic improvements, they deserved that title.

Over beers with the instructors, we became life long friends. They still come to my area yearly shooting, they stay with me. We have a ball.

I still have that old ” gold ring” scope on one of my older sniper rifles, I will always have that scope. It will go to my son when I’m gone.

I don’t want to drop names but two of the guys are lead instructors with Viking Tactical shooting. Ram by some Delta Troopers.

And one is now lead instructor with ATN a night vision company. He training up troops and cops on the new ” white light” NODS and IR gear the new generation stuff, like the four to two NODS seen being used by DevGru, Team 6.

I’ve offered all of you a seat in a class were doing here first week of May. Got some SF boys coming in to teach a class, over the weekend. I’m hoping to also provide a night shoot for the class, and local agencies, to shoot the NEW white Light NODS and IR.

The guys who,build my rifles ” Northwest Rifle Actions” are providing a couple rifles with the long distant nODS and IR scopes mounted, for some comprehensive night shooting.

The class isn’t cheap, but I think worth it. 400/500 dollars, if you want to come your welcome to stay at my home. To help keep costs down for,you.

If your interested go over to a site named ” Mountain Guerrilla” web site, the guys nick name is John Mosbey, he has a fantastic reputation for no non sense training.

Sorry to be long winded.

Terrorism & other Man made disasters • Re: Where to Run, If a Nuclear Bomb is Dropped

March 22, 2017 Dirk Williams 0

Please read this, then in your own head tell me where we are at. I did not write this, but have copied for review daily.

In 2004, Richard Poe wrote in a article/Book-named ” Velvet Revolution”, which outlined these seven steps and strategies. Poe Writes this is the same blueprint used repeatedly by George Soro’s in other countries.

1.Form a shadow Govt.
2. Control the air waves.
3.Bleed the State dry.
4.Sow Unrest.
5.Provke an election crisis.
6. Take the streets.
7.outlast your opponents.

This isn’t rocket science, and I would take this to the next level, Soros is their point man, he’s their ” Boy” Soros isn’t really driving. Do you really think he is solely responsible for the amounts of money being spent, do you think Soros owns all the media corporations.

He doesn’t, this is Bildinerg, CRF, this is BIS, this is the top one percent imposing their will on We The People.

Friends, while I truly believe Trump can help, I’m a realist, and recognize that we are a failed nation. People on my side have zero change of reconciling with the left, frankly I don’t even want to try. I’ve seen their vision, and I simply don’t stand by them.

This nation is in for a split. Civil war? I don’t know. i do know we are one progressive side phone call away from serious clashes.

Don’t underestimate the left they are well orginized, had leadership in place, have transportation, medicine food, water legal sources, clubs rocks cap stun etc etc. you would be foolish to not understand that they also have vast weapons and ammo stored.

Keep in mind it takes about a day to instruct novice shooters to be battle field proficient. Those who excell will be further trained as sharp shooters and snipers, sappers and engineers.

Please pray for our nation. I hope you all continue to prep, load bullets, and pay attention, who knows what the trigger will be.

Respectfully.

Mythbusters was a pretty good TV show – but that is what it was. Considering how few people wash their hands, let alone properly wash their hands, I doubt a little arosol crap would make much of a difference. I don’t wash my hands or flush in public restrooms like Walley World! I figure a little of MY crap on me is better than someone else’s! I do carry those little hand sanitisers that come in individual packets. Swamp
