Also while I understand your drive to offer this for free, keep in mind that in some people’s eyes that something they didn’t pay for is often something they don’t value. Not saying you need to charge money, but you may want to consider creative ways to make the participants stakeholders and finding non-monetary ways for them to invest in the…[Read more]
Having been and instructor and state co-ordinator for project appleseed, I will chime in a little.
I occasionally got offered money as state co-ordinator. (at the time the program did not have a definite policy on donations like this. Now monies have to be sent in to national.) At first I didn’t want to take it as I considered it an offense to…[Read more]
I don’t know how much you like your dad, but my dad bought me an HR 20 gauge single shot shotgun when I was 13. When I was 16 I traded it. A few years later I became an adult and regretted it simply because it came from my dad and when he died when I was 27 I regretted it even more.
Speaking as a father, your father would understand you getting…[Read more]
SO 1SG your preference?
BCM or Colt?
Good to know as I was pondering one vs a BCM.
In your opinion does FN make your list?
I toured their factory here in Columbia 5 years ago and was impressed.
I toured PSA about the same time and was thoroughly underwhelmed.

Then only exception has been their FT Lewis boots. I have one pair in black leather and…[Read more]
As far as rifles go, the one that is at the top of my approval list.
Unlike most rifles with a lo-pro gas black, this gas block is pinned.
Of all the gear I have owned, theirs has been the highest quality so far. I have used the M14 micro rig at most of my classes. It is also my go-to-town rig. Very compact and efficient. Holds 6 AR mags and a blow out kit.
Don’t buy cheap shit made in China. No matter how high the Amazon ratings are.
Don’t listen to the couch commandos on the forums (MVT excluded). They are a bunch of fat-ass fucks that are impotent and if they even own the gear they tout, the only thing they do is put it on so they can masturbate their egos.
All the high-speed, low-drag gear is…[Read more]
In reply to a soldier who kept calling his rifle a weapon.
“The mind is the weapon. Everything else is just a tool.”
In all seriousness most technicals I have seen were white Toyotas.
DuaneH replied to the topic President Trump and the Application of the UCMJ. UPDATE 5 in the forum Current Affairs & Topical News Pieces 1 month, 4 weeks ago
I knew Matt Golsteyn. Trump did the right thing.
The problem with the military is that it is more worried about being politically correct and advancing the careers of the upper echelons of the officer corps than it is with fostering the warrior mindset and Gee I don’t know things like winning battles and wars.
Actually I hope he lives.
It is hard to say where and when the problem started and the big question WHY?
Personally I think it is that Americans have become so self absorbed (selfish) that having children has become a burden.
