• Methinks we see the same results here but have slightly different takes on the causes of things.

    I was raised by strict christian-conservative parents, so I know of where I speak, when I say I don’t agree with a lot of their agenda. But. If you want to take a look at their overall impact on our society and culture, it was a lot more positive…[Read more]

  • I couldn’t agree more. The military is still infested with Obama ass-kissers who think our military is the problem, not our enemies, who are just nice, mis-guided boys.

    Other Commonwealth countries are pulling the same shit with their troops. It’s disgraceful.

    I am no longer recommending young men serve their country. Go to MVT instead.…[Read more]

  • You know, at this point, I view both sides as essentially twin threats to my liberty. If you look at both Republican and Demo parties, they have both been co-opted by powerful government lobbies, so really the little guy is getting squeezed out in the center. Neither side really represents me, and my core values anymore. Much less these little…[Read more]

  • Well I think it’s high time to bring back a few independent states.

    When we talk about framing a government, and at what level, consider this. A Pashtu tribesman doesn’t give a flying fuck about lines drawn on a map, whether he is inside some “nation-state” designated as Pakistan, or Ass-Crackistan. It has zero effect on him personally, in…[Read more]

  • RR, good to see you are getting into the deal. Let us know whatcha end up with. I have a few spares and might be able to help ya out. Now start planning your E&E route to Romney!

    On the Canadian front, well, we’re not that far behind ya, Mate, we just have a guy who is thwarting their plans for awhile. We don’t like the Reds very much either…[Read more]

  • Hey cool Mike, glad to see you came to the dark side.

  • Well, you know, Max has had some really good designs come down the pipe, but damn it man, it’s hard to find someone to do small production runs of custom gear.

    Max and I have been talking about rucksacks lately, and also belt kit. So maybe chest rigs are not far behind. There is a chance we maybe be able to line up another mfg to do some…[Read more]

  • No offense to our urban brethren, but, my intention is to be as far away as possible from any urban shit-hole that might be a threat to me and mine.

    The whole point of why we go to MVT and train is to prep[are for possible times when urban hordes might migrate out and threaten our enclaves. I think it is unwise to discount our little communities…[Read more]

  • Well, as a card-carrying old bitter clinger, my way forward through this current morass does not hinge on re-building the republic, rather a return to my ancestor’s way of life, which evolved around a local-regional model vs some grand national scheme. So I am perfectly content to congregate with people of my own kind, meaning folks that are as…[Read more]

  • OK sorry for the rant and missed point. What can we all rally around. Well, I would say:

    Freedom. The freedom to do whatever the fuck you want, as long as it doesn’t get stupid and impact negatively on others. Freedom based on your ability to insist upon it, even to protect it with deadly force. Freedom based on your ability to support…[Read more]

  • I understand the 1st Sgt’s frustration about the dialogue surrounding your choice of AR, specifically concerning Colt. He is right, in that the current Colts are “gold standard”, as it were, but I would also say that it took them 40-odd years to quit fucking around with neutered bolt carriers, lower sear blocks, enlarged pins, funky take down…[Read more]

  • I keep coming back to Heinlein here, so forgive the redundancy, but I believe he comes as close as anyone to describing the state of human affairs.

    I believe you have no rights, past what you are ready and willing to enforce, at a moment’s notice. The only rights you have are what you make for yourself. And even then that may not be enough. If…[Read more]

    Getting yourself a “rack grade” but utterly reliable AR-15 is easy but hard at the same time. We all come from different backgrounds and have different talents. Sometimes I forget this. The AR market is so crammed full of vendors at this point that it can be hard to separate the sheep from the goats.

    Colt has finally got it’s head out of…[Read more]

    Same here. Been looking at ebay at different models. They have low power for around a 100 bucks, and high(er) power for about 250. Lots of guys trash them but at least you get a metal housing and can use MBTR leads and antennae’s.

    Yeah the techniques, weapons, and equipment are legit. Just the mission sets are different. If these guys had to…[Read more]

  • DiznNC replied to the topic Veterans Day! in the forum The Lounge 1 week ago

    One of my earliest memories is of watching my Dad in uniform, marching by in formation, on a Veterans Day. As he came up even with me, have gave me a wink. That snapshot is engraved in the halls of my mind. I was never so proud of him, or of being his son. I look back on that as one of the moments I could not wait to be in uniform and replace…[Read more]

  • DiznNC replied to the topic Leader & Led in the forum Teamwork & Leadership 1 week ago

    This is a very difficult subject. Made doubly so by the compressed time frame for training classes, and the fact that folks are paying for it.

    From the time that Max first hung up his shingle, the training curriculum has continued to evolve, to where he offers combat leadership courses. The mere fact that he does, speaks volumes for how far MVT…[Read more]

    Yes I’ve watched it from day-one. You have much catching up to do.

    You have to be careful with mainstream entertainment. Yes, they have real-deal advisors here, and the weapons, equipment, and yes even some T,T,P’s are legit. But. Two things.

    First, is the age old bugaboo, OBE (Overtaken By Events). Much of what you are seeing here is…[Read more]

  • OK I’d like to add my two cents here. I was brought to task on another forum because I had mentioned that I had been to 6 courses at MVT in that past year, and some dudes were like, you’re getting way too wrapped up into one curriculum; you need to expand your horizons and attend other instructors, blah, blah, blah. So OK, I did go out to some…[Read more]

  • OK yeah applied to the present sit. Slavery was the biggest mistake we ever made. It will be the death of this country yet. If we go the way of Rhodesia and South Africa, the entire planet is fucked.

    It is a mistake to discount racial hatred in this country. Saying you know a few black folks that are good folks does nothing to address the…[Read more]
