55 I am waiting for the proposal that "reasonable" gun owners (the only kind that need to be considered since all the others are toothless red-neck revolutionaries) really want all guns to be confiscated now so that we can eventually institute a "re-issue" program that puts guns back into the hands of the "right-thinking" ruling caste people (and their mercenaries) at some point in the future.

Please take it easy with your back (like you were going to play three sets of tennis -sure).
A former co-worker had a ruptured disk and then two additional ones.
First they put in a synthetic disk. Then with the other ones they did spinal fusion surgery.

My neighbor also had spinal fusion surgery for her ruptured disks. I think she is about the same age as you are. Very painful for you now, I am sure.

85 Comet Hyakutake in 1996 was awesome in the Northern Hemisphere. It wasn't terribly bright, but it passed close to the Earth and absolutely dominated the night sky for about three nights as it whizzed past. But you had to be away from city and suburban lights to fully appreciate it.

Comet Hale-Bopp was visible to the naked eye for months in 1997. It was also quite memorable. It was larger than Hyakutake, but didn't come as close to Earth.

I didn't see Comet McNaught in 2007 as it was only visible in the Southern Hemisphere, but those were some of the most gorgeous comet photos I've ever seen.

Keep in mind that a comet that "could outshine the moon" is a comet that is visible in broad daylight when it is close to the sun. That's a big deal, and such comets only occur 2-3 times per century on average.

But that doesn't mean that it will outshine the moon at night. It will only be that bright when it is close to the sun, which means that you will need to look towards the sun and block it off behind the corner of a building or something in order to see the comet, which will probably appear as a small fuzzy point of light.

Still, as I said, a daylight comet is a pretty big deal.

From the KU link:

Speaking previously about her most famous assets, she said: 'I don't really know what the appeal is about boobs. But I do know that when I was in junior high, I used to be made fun of - for being flat-chested.

'Everyone would go, "She's not pretty! She doesn't have boobs!" So I always had boob envy. And when finally I went through my growth spurt, and they appeared, and I just loved them. So that's why I like boobs, because I didn't have them, and then I got them!

102 Jewells, I was lucky that I had only a single herniated disk about 7 years ago. Back pain is excruciating - no one can know unless they've had it. Sometimes I would sit up in a chair late at night because I could not sleep, and drink a beer with a valium and that would let me doze.
I had terrible pain in my left leg, and I had to walk all hunched over. I got epidural injections of cortisone, which helped when it got really bad. But there were only so many times they would do that. Eventually it healed on its own - I was lucky.

I hope it doesn't sit there floating like a turd in a punchbowl.
Second thing is my wife and I watched last night's Justified this evening. I had to laugh that Ollie, the $2400 a year constable, drove the same model and color babe mobile I drove when I met my wife to be, a bittersweet (golden colored) Gremlin. I busted a gut on that one.

137 I had a microdiscectomy for a bulging disc 1.5 years ago. It was bad towards the end. Couldnt walk, drive, sit or stand. So damned miserable. Tried everything before resorting to surgery.

Doctors told me I would have to stop weightlifting and running... which is pretty much my life. Wasnt going to happen.

Finally had surgery and cured me 100%. I went back to the gym 3 months after surgery and havent looked back. Lifting as heavy as ever.

After surgery, listen to them and walk/stretch as much as you safely can. When youre cleared to exercise again, ease back in slowly. Its amazing how quickly you can recover.

Just wanted to leave a positive story for you.

The herniated disk rubs on the spinal chord, and the irritation causes pain somewhere else in the body. Like Jewells, I had a herniated disk in the L5 lumbar, and the pain from the irritation was in my left leg. Even today, my left foot is partially numb from the irritated nerves in my back.
A herniated disk is no joke - the vertebrae bones are rubbing on each other after the disks rupture. The pain is excruciating at times. That's what got Rush Limbaugh in trouble with oxycodone addiction - back pain. It can be unbearably painful.

Go see a real back doctor... i forget the technical name. Get second opinions if you dont like what you hear or if you think someone is rushing you into surgery. Take ownership of your healthcare while you still can.

Also, get in touch with a physical therapist. A good one. Look for the therapists who treat the local sports team. I saw the same people who treat our NFL team and insurance covered it. Physical therapists come a dime a dozen, so be selective.

This is the first year I've done it this way, because we consolidated the potted citrus in an area nicknamed "the mesa" by the window to the BH's sewing room. Before, we'd try covering them individually wherever they were. It's a southward-facing wall, and now -- with the plastic -- it's quite toasty. I think they'll like it.

Then the rifle was issued to the Army in Vietnam, at first without cleaning kits. Army claimed the rifle did not need them. Well the ammo the Army issued to the M-16 users fouled the tube so they quickly jammed. So the Army rushed in cleaning kits and training.

Obama might easy go easier on pot smokers, though he didn't in his first term, and will maintain a pro-choice administration (though I'd argue that shouldn't count as a libertarian issue).

In exchange, we get gun control, Obamacare, tax increases, and his failure to see that spending is even a problem.

182 146 -ette,

the "M-16/M-4" he was on about.....

The M-16 was born as the AR-10 Eugene Stoner's competitor against the T-33 to become the m-1 garand's replacement......

Stoner cranked the design back from .308 to 5.56/.223 and wound up selling it to Ranchers and gun enthusiasts.

The original AR-10 design was used by some foreign military contracts but the USAF adopted the AR-15 for its security police after Curtis leMay got a demonstration from Stoner.

The Military build up in Vietnam saw the design shift to Army hands as well. the marines adopted it nearer the mid phase of the war.

Colt made the rifle under license as Armalite

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ArmaLite

The notion that the "M-4 is a weapon of doom" is rich....

it is the fucking ammo they are pissy about and it is just as deadly coming out of a bolt gun as a fucking semi-auto.

What Pissy mc Crys wants is us stuck with .22 LR ammo.

Fuck him he works for us not us for him

184 Not really a back room deal. Just the McNamera DoD striving for commonality. What I type was just the start of the M-16 saga. Its what caused so many in the Army to think it a failure. The rifle was forced on them to replace the more lethal but heavier M-14.

190 Yeah McNamara, that fuckin' Whiz Kid.
He didn't want to chrome the recievers on the original M-16's used in Viet Nam, even though the institutional people in the Army knew from WWII that a rifle without a chromed reciever would corrode in a jungle environment.
Those early M-16's would get corrosion overnight in the jungles in Viet Nam.
And the early ammunition used in Viet Namhad a different powder than Gene Stoner's design, which made the mechanism more dirty after firing, leading it to jam faster. I think Stoner's designs used a "stick" powder, which burned cleaner, rather than the cheaper "ball" powder which made the action in the M-16 dirty fast.All the rifle experts in the Army knew better, but McNamara over-ruled them, until there were a lot of "problems" in the field, i.e., guns jamming and men getting killed.
That guy - what a freakin' bastard. McNamara.

194 184 Anna puma,

Well Stoner's design with ammo built to his specs was by army standards 'damn near perfectly clean" in a NATO environ not 'nam....

and the AR-15 is more lethal in ways that matter than the M-14 pound for pound.

1) more soldiers are WAY more accurate with the AR than the M-14 hour for hour of training

2) from a military standpoint a wounded opfor is more useful than a dead opfor minute by minute.

You wound one fucker it takes one or two to carry 'em.

A soldier who is HOOAH TROOP will be more lethal wwith the 7.62*51 but Avergae joe handles the 5.56 MUCH better.....

and I went in believing the opposite.

201 I found a killer quote from federalist #29


"But though the scheme of disciplining the whole nation must be abandoned
as mischievous or impracticable; yet it is a matter of the utmost importance
that a well-digested plan should, as soon as possible, be adopted for
the proper establishment of the militia. The attention of the government
ought particularly to be directed to the formation of a select corps of
moderate extent, upon such principles as will really fit them for service
in case of need. By thus circumscribing the plan, it will be possible
to have an excellent body of well-trained militia, ready to take the field
whenever the defense of the State shall require it. This will not only
lessen the call for military establishments, but if circumstances should
at any time oblige the government to form an army of any magnitude that
army can never be formidable to the liberties of the people while there
is a large body of citizens, little, if at all, inferior to them in discipline
and the use of arms, who stand ready to defend their own rights and those
of their fellow-citizens. This appears to me the only substitute that
can be devised for a standing army, and the best possible security against
it, if it should exist."

cthulhu glad you weren't seriously injured
hope the citrus plants like it
what kind of citrus trees do you have?


Posted by: chemjeff at January 09, 2013 11:08 PM (BBWjt)


Blood orange, lime, and a dwarf lemon. They're all really small -- like about 3 feet -- in containers of about 25 gallons.

Most of our plants are actually in containers rather than in the ground, and so a lot of our garden infrastructure is "staircases" so we can display 'em all ranked up. And then you get to try and pair things so that you have "droopers" and "standers" in the same pot -- we have trailing lantana and bird-of-paradise in one pot out front, for instance, that's worked particularly well. When we initially got some of the citrus, I thought it would be cute to have the lemon tree growing with a groundcover of lemon thyme, and the lime growing with a groundcover of lime thyme -- but it turns out that this is a bad idea because the thyme outcompetes the surface feeding roots of the citrus.

The last time the BH and I visited London, we stopped off at Kew Gardens. They have a cafeteria in a building that was originally an "Orangery" -- a heated building where they could grow oranges in England. Having grown up in California, where you can generally grow citrus outside, it's disturbing to think of places where you have to do that.

218 I have a funny story to share with you all!

So a buddy of mine went with me to a fun show back in late Nov last year and we both picked up some precious metals. Later on, I bought a thousand rounds and urged him to do the same. After hearing that he only got 200, I highly encouraged him to get more (this was right before Sandy Hook happened). So, this past Monday I asked him if he got any extra mags too. He told me that he wasn't going to buy anything else because this wife had intercepted his ammo package and hid it from him. LOLOLOL!!!! He said he spent this past weekend looking everywhere for it and he still had no idea where she hid it. He didn't want to risk any more shipments being "hijacked". I told him to go ahead and order the mags while they were still available but have them shipped to my house instead so his wife couldn't fuck with it.

Today was the day for delivery. I come home and the first thing my wife asks me is "Why are we getting Bill's mail at our house?" I started to tell her the whole backstory and she said she had a suspicion about what was in the package and was tempted to hide it from me herself! LOL!!!!

WOMEN!!! WTF is wrong with them?!?!!?!?!

So now, it isn't safe at my house either for him or me! I gotta worry about TFG and his goonsquad coming to my door, I can't spare any more paranoia on my own wife! Holy shit, what is going on in this world?!?!

I'm going to have to take exception to that about Rummy -- "The Once and Future SecDef", and the only man to have been both the oldest and youngest SecDef when he held the post. I think he got stuck with the old "you didn't give me the solution I needed; you gave me what I asked for" rap -- and that he was technically competent to the point where he could make the convoluted and difficult guidelines he was given look plausibly doable. For years. Even if, ultimately, they weren't.

231 1. until enough are outrage/endangered by the regime, no march will be effective and if their are enough, no laws against marching will be matter. that some are concerned about the laws is a sign that the passion isn't enough yet.

2. this is all part of the LIB folks. Did anyone think you could just sit back and not be affected until the rest of the country woke up? if you care about certain things/ideals then anything this regime will do in the next 4 years will outrage you and be very dangerous to you personally. even those in so called red states.

3. each step that is taken towards tyranny is logical and foreseeable. Only the timing is in question due to events.

4. the states are the last bastion. Those that fall or have already fallen will provide the human resource to begin the return.

5. strong desire or cold logic isn't enough to overthrow any regime. It takes passion. Passion derived from fear for self, fear for family, fear for others. until they have created that fear, not enough will be passionate enough to overthrow the regime.

They know this and their plans will take it into consideration.

The only thing that can save us sooner would be an "event" of some type. could be anything.

271 Newark Mayor Cory Booker Tries To Eliminate Senior Citizen Politically... With A Smile

Newark Mayor and crypto-Progressive Cory Booker is ramping-up towards his eventual run for the U. S. Senate in 2014. The only problem is that New Jersey already has an incumbent Democrat in the seat: Frank Lautenberg, who had retired previously, only to be substituted for the scandal plagued Sen. Torricelli under questionable legality. While Booker comes across as a personable everyman, he has previously let it slip that he is a radical Progressive who supports a twisted view of ďjustice.Ē He even manages to praise the man that he wants to push aside in order to satisfy his own lust for power.

297 Good evening.

I sw Django Unchained Tuesday night. I wrote this review..."review"...in two parts for an email list I'm on. There's nothing else to add so I'll just post teh whole thing for your pleasure.

Robert sees Django Unchained

*Sits*

*Ponders*

*Opens mouth while pointing finger*

*Stops*

*Rubs outline of mouth*

*Crosses leg*

*Huffs*

*Looks at feet*

*Breathes*

3/5 stars.

------------------

Fuck.

Here's the thing.

It's a Tarantino movie.

And while the movie is good, it has many qualities that recommend it, I can't simply say good is good enough when it comes to Tarantino movies.

Tarantino movies need to be excellent. They need to be great. They need to leave you thinking "holy shit" in regards to something while leaving the theater. Django Unchained, while a very good movie, doesn't ever really excel. It's just a really good if overly long and talkative genre film. A b-movie western character combined with many Quentin Tarantino affectations and a modern rap soundtrack. And while that can be entertaining it's not really going to leave much of a mark.

Jamie Foxx, an actor who I don't really like much, is rather good here. He's still very much Jaime Foxx, but...palatable. He plays a slave freed by Christoph Waltz who agrees to help him find and free his slave wife after doing some bounty hunting beforehand.

Christoph Waltz is most excellent, by the way.

So Waltz finds Foxx, frees him, yada yada yada, fast forward, they find his wife on a plantation in Mississippi run by Leonardo Dicaprio, yada yada yada, shoot out happens, lots of people die, blah blah blah, then it just gets overlong finally the end now I Can go home and take a shit and who is this Jonah Hill asshole that keeps popping up here and there and whose dick did he suck to become famous any-damn-way?

*Sigh*

I dunno. It's just okay. I'm trying to be as objective as possible and not let my crushing disappoint factor in. I'm tampted say say 2.5/5 stars but that might be unfair. So 3/5. But, and maybe it's because I've been on a Tarantino kick lately but...damn.

Reservoir Dogs is vital and raw. Pulp Fiction is a masterpiece. Jackie Brown is a criminally underrated but outstanding work. Kill Bill is wonderful genre filmmaking given new vitality. Django is...eh. Just eh. Good. Sure. It's good. Not that it stands shoulder to shoulder with Tarantino's previous work. Doesn't really stand out against other films out now. Hell, if not for the ginned up N-Word controversy it wouldn't stand out at all. Django just sort of...is.

But it did occur to me pretty quickly, you know what this movie really compares to? Robert Rodriguez's movie, Machete. The one with Danny Trejo playing the Mexican Federale, you know the one. It's not unlike Machete in some ways in that it starts off as pastiche and ends up in some bizarre racialist dick waving place. But whereas Rodriguez starts waving the flag of Mexican nationalism Tarantino leads the viewer into white guilt territory while being escorted by the blackest guy he can find for authenticity's sake. And with more words and less tongue-in-cheek humor. Though I'd say Machete has more going for it since Lindsay Lohan gets her tits out in it. Oh, there's nudity in Django (a first for Tarantino, I believe) but mostly it's Foxx's nutsack. A little titty, but mostly cock and balls. Briefly, but...mostly.

Man, I'm just so torn. I really wanted to like this movie more. I really did. I totally get why the DGA snubbed him Tuesday.

Fuck it.

Cloud Atlas finally landed at the dollar theater. Missed it the first go around. Think I can spare the buck fiddy to go see it. Going Wednesday night, I'll let you know if it's any good.

But let me leave you with a brief word on the trailers I caught.

Scary Movie 5 - They're still making these fucking movies? Jesus, awful.

Pain & Gain - New Michael Bay, hooray! Much as I like Bayformers I've been wanting to see something else from him for a while. Marky-Mark and The Rock? I'm in.

Last Man Standing - New Ah-nuld, looks pretty good. Opens in a couple of weeks.

Zero Dark Thirty - Hated The Hurt Locker, but am looking forward to this one. Kathryn Bigelow won the Oscar cause of Academy pity. Wanna see if she does something to actually deserve it. Killing Bin Laden? Can't go wrong there.

Oblivion - Tom Cruise and the dude that directed Tron: Legacy. Looks okay but I can never remember a single detail and still don't know what the movie is about. Meh.

309 And I did in fact see Cloud Atlas tonight.

BUT!

I was tired going in and began dozing off slightly during parts. That's not a knock against it, I was just tired. The way the movie is structured, six stories woven together into a tapestry, important stuff could happen in one story while another story was being told. So I got a little lost.

GOOD MOVIE!

But in fairness I can't review it fairly since I didn't quite take in the whole thing. Seemed like a damn fine film. Wachowski Siblings are definitely back in their game. But when did Tom Hanks start trying to act? I like Tom Hanks better when he's being Tom Hanks.

The earth is trashed by aliens and Cruise is some sort of janitor trying to clean up the planet. He thinks he's the only one left after everyone left for greener pastures. Wrong.

Some people have already speculated that Cruise's character was brainwashed and is really working for the aliens, trying to find the last remnants of humans still hiding on the planet. Things get even more tense when a spaceship crash lands, filled with humans who left many years ago.

314 I believe that one of the reasons our situation has gotten so twisted and anxious for so many is that we are frustrated and defensive over what should be our rights.

not just guns but our opinions and actions in other things.

this is aided and abetted by the State Media.

they refuse to cover rallies that would show the rest of the country how strong our opinion is (which is why they don't show them).

They don't cover or distort what we have to say (which they don't/won't understand).

And they deride daily who we are and what we think and even if we should be allowed to exist. (they'd like to see our elimination or surrender).

If the country blows up, a primary cause is the State Media's war on conservatives.

Tom's job is to re-activate damaged drones monitoring a devastated and uninhabited Earth after an alien invasion that failed but fucked everything up.

If things get ugly, the Left is not going to allow us to communicate.

According to this new Amazon Prime selling point, i would be paid to read it, with it shipped free, and 25 bucks off my next order.

Nope, not signing up for it. But to tell the truth, i have had nothing but good experiences with Amazon. I once bought an around 5 buck book and had it shipped rush which turned out to be a 30+ total. Found it in a store the next day and cancelled the order and they gave me full credit for both the book and shippings.

324 Mero,

In comment #95 chemjeff suggests 'civil disobedience', further saying 'what are they going to do, arrest one million people?' Also on this thread, someone suggested carrying empty magazines to DC.

Now, you can (and did) argue that no one advocated breaking the law, but there have been cries right here on this blog to prosecute Gregory for waving around an empty 30 round mag in DC. Is it or is it not illegal in DC to possess a magazine capable of holding more than 10 rounds? I'm not saying saying that chemjeff strictly advocated carrying guns to DC, because he didn't. But you could infer that. Now maybe that poster was saying bring legal magazines, but again, there is that pesky inference thing going on.



So I took a position saying that going to DC and breaking the law would be a bad bad idea. That is still my position. Any useful suggestion at this point needs to be fully within the law.

For now. No one knows what the future holds.

Pretty much. They have worked tirelessly to marginalize some people and give others an excuse to ignore reality outside their bubble to the point where both sides see their differences as irreconcilable.

They are *literally* trying to foment a bloody revolution, and they have such a stranglehold on the main channels of communication and education that you can't communicate that fact to most people (thus marginalization).

Basically it's people with power and people convinced they should have power revolting against restrictions created by our political system.

310 Oblivion - Tom Cruise and the dude that directed Tron: Legacy. Looks okay but I can never remember a single detail and still don't know what the movie is about. Meh.The earth is trashed by aliens and Cruise is some sort of janitor trying to clean up the planet. He thinks he's the only one left after everyone left for greener pastures. Wrong.Some people have already speculated that Cruise's character was brainwashed and is really working for the aliens, trying to find the last remnants of humans still hiding on the planet. Things get even more tense when a spaceship crash lands, filled with humans who left many years ago.

Some more detail from Merovign.A lot of speculating and guessing have been going on on the internet about it. They're saying that Cruise's character has been duped/brainwashed by the aliens into thinking he's just there to fix shit and clean up earth in his little home in the sky. He thinks that he's the only person on earth as everyone else is either dead or offworld somewhere else. He doesn't know that Morgan Freeman and his band of underground humans have been there the whole time, hiding from Cruise and his drones.Then, a spaceship crashes with humans on it, but the markings on the ship look like they're from our near future. They have different flags for some of the passengers on their "pods" and it looks like the spaceship may have been traveling "relativistically", i.e. traveling close to light speed away from earth, time slowing down for them, but years passing by on earth.Cruise's boss betrays him by trying to kill the passengers and him and the game is on.

Also, socking is cool, just don't sock regular commenters. You can sock trolls, celebrities, public figures etc - as long as they don't comment here (i.e. Adam Baldwin and Nick Searcy comment here, so don't sock them).

370 There's another movie with Cruise in the works that sounds interesting. The title is a little weird though.

"All You Need Is Kill".

Again, the earth is invaded by especially lethal aliens and Cruise is drafted as a soldier to fight them. His first contact with them lasts only seconds and he is killed. Then somehow, he wakes up again and is again fighting the aliens, lasting only seconds before he is killed. He wakes up yet again, and the cycle keeps repeating, each time he lasts a little longer against the aliens, learning how they fight, adapting his tactics, to last longer against them, until he's holding his own and defeats the alien that has killed him a thousand times before.

Emily Blunt is also in it as a ninja-skilled soldier chick. Cruise somehow gets involved with her.

As much as I ignore Ruger, the mini-14s are probably not being snapped up as fast as AK/AR clones, so there might be a few left. Also consider less traditional (or more depending on your POV) choices such as Remington and Browning semi-auto rifles like the 7400 or BAR hunting rifles (with detachable magazines).

Don't get a high-mileage 7400, though, they really are not designed to fire thousands and thousands of rounds.

Since you mentioned money, I'll skip over the more expensive FNs, HKs, FALs, Steyrs, etc - though they are all good choices if you can find them.

The Mini-14 and the Keltec SU-16 are similar in that they are light, cheap, and not hugely accurate (someone will complain).

If you are mechanically-inclined you can build an AR, AK, FAL, or HK rifle from parts as you find them. It is not hard unless you make the receiver yourself.

You might still be able to find some of the less common parts at reasonable prices, such as surplus HK G3 or FN FAL parts - they are both available as .308 and .223, though .308 is more common and usually cheaper *in those models*. Most of the makers of those parts, even the South American ones, have been pretty good quality.

Both of those are accurate and reliable, if a little heavy, and the .308 recoils significantly more than a .223.

397 Dearest Moron horde,
I lurk more than I comment, but I feel you all are like an extended family. And as such, I come to plea for prayers and healing thoughts for my wife Kim.
She is 17.5 weeks pregnant with twins (our first), and is currently in a medical coma in the ICU of UNC hospital fighting a severe Legionell pneumonia. While she is getting better by the day, today she began showing signs of pre-term labor. Which is obviously very not good. I'm grasping at every straw of acquaintance I have seeking prayer and goodness.
Thanks,

409 If money is not really an object, while the FN SCARs are pretty much gone, the FS2000 is kind of rare but still around, there's always the Steyr AUG or the FN PS90, or the Galil or Daewoo 2000 (Galil clone), and I would trade at least *somebody's* left nut for a Kel-Tec RFB, even if not my own.

There may be a few AR-10s or variants around, and if money is *truly* no object there are things like the Cobb rifle, if they're still in business, which is a long-action AR for magnum calibers.

There are still SCAR 16's and 17's on GB but are now double their MSRP. You can buy one, but will pay out the ass. The PS90 is nice and exotic, but the ammo and mags are extremely hard to find, which also makes them very expensive.

Posted by: Exasperated Expat at January 10, 2013 01:20 AM (gkfSV)

424 But back to the "cheap and cheerful" end of the spectrum, there are still some surplus rifles around that are magazine-based, which is really what you're looking for. SKS, though I do not like them (at least get the aftermarket non-inertail firing spring if you get one, it's cheap).

Unfortunately some of the best ones are collectors' items and expensive, like the old WWII G43. And many good ones were never imported much before import bans.

But *MOST* of the market is ARs, AKs, and Surplus Military like FALs or G3s.

I haven't really talked about M1As or M14s because they never were cheap, even years ago they were Mercedes and Caviar territory. I don't know what FNARs cost right now if any are available, they're basically FN semi-auto rifles that look more like hunting rifles but are built kind of like SCARs.

I've got the book on my Kindle. It is very much Groundhog Day crossed with Starship Troopers. The book, not the movie.

I have no doubt they're going to fuck it up. In the book the protagonist is a young Japanese man drafted to fight in powered armor against the aliens and get caught in a time loop mechanism the aliens use to warn themselves against new human tactics. The female lead is an American soldier who is a legendarily effective against the aliens because she has been living in the time loop for a long while already.

The stills I've seen of the movie production are not promising. Cruise is obviously not Japanese and is easily twice the age of the book's hero. A Lt. Col. where the book revolves around a buck private grunt. Cruise is shown in armor that only partially covers his limbs and torso, more like the experimental HULC exoskeleton. This is one of the great failings of Hollywood, refusing to cover up the face of an expensive star.

Good book, little hope for the movie.

461 Noveske does not prefer the piston at all for the AR-15 platform for some reason. He says pistons are fine, and if you want a weapon with piston then go get an AK, SKS, or M14.

Noveske explains it.

I am told that Noveske guns tend to run smoother, a little quieter, and with a little less wear, by people who handle lots of guns (I don't have one). I think they tune the gas system rather than just slap components together.

462 Except maybe Cowboy Action. It's basically a renfaire for gun people, and I'm not sure I could do that without falling down laughing, and that would be rude.

your Cowboy Action/SASS nic could be Ace of Spades or Double Trouble, Dry Gulch Pete, or sumptin'......


Cowboy Action is just blackpowder 3 gun with guns designed before 1895

so back where the liberals want to take us currently with their gun control plans

Unless you plan on having to hump the rounds in battle go with the round that costs less.

465 Part of the problem discussing guns is there's a tribe aspect. People believe what they saw or what one person said, and testing is kind of ignored.

Has anyone tested DI vs Piston on the same platform? Why yes, several, the Filthy 14 test, the Army tests, Pannone's tests - what did they find? *everything* else is more important.

And on top of that, most of the literature does really invalid tests, and the manufacturers aren't going to tell you when their stuff doesn't measure up.

But if you really want to see blood, start a discussion about what the best lubricant is! (For guns... 'cause I know what you were thinking!)

He's talking about piston vs DI running with suppressors which I will never be able to get through the legal channels.

471 Reading about how Obamacare forbids gun registration if Roberts was half as clever as some delusional righties thought he would've upheld the ACA on the grounds that revoking it would infringe on second amendment rights or that it passed muster under the second amendment. Makes as much sense as a tax.

Saiga 7.62x39 running great for me. Feeding it FMJ in lacquered steel cases. Cheap, even now if you look around.

474 Everyone I know who has an AR with a piston(stock, out of the box), the rifle generally does not shoot as good of groups as a gas AR out of the box, generally

478 Late to the "Occulist" part of the thread. Missed it first time through. As much as it pains me to agree with an arrogant, tact-less, self-important yutz like that, he's essentially correct. Brandishing weapons on a March on the Capitol" is not the right way to go about protesting any EO's that may happen. The opposite would be the most effective. Completely peaceful, yet forceful protest, is the only answer...

....at this point in time.

There is a sizable element within the Democratic community that opposes this kind of thing just as much as we conservative/libertarian types. Given the Marxist stranglehold on the media, the optics would be terrible.

If the opposition to confiscation legislation is to be violent, it had better be organized and prepared, under the radar. This is important. Any opposition will be quickly infiltrated. High profile people are best avoided or used as camouflage and diversions.

481 Piston AR's are a huge mistake. They're all proprietary systems and have no discernable advantage besides gas metering which you could put on your DI if you really wanted to. It's a boutique affectation

482 great failings of Hollywood, refusing to cover up the face of an expensive star.

prolly not all the studios/producers fault.

Actors are actors because they want to be seen. They're exhibitionists.

Plus they want the face time/audience recognition of who is doing the acting. For star power negotiation with the producers.

I always enjoy watching them when they're in spacesuits. Most Hollywood spacesuits are LIT FROM INSIDE the helmet. That's so the audience can see their face and expressions but it's stupid. In the REAL the glare would be obstructive and it wouldn't be of any use as any readouts inside would be self lit.

Dumb dumb dumb. Seeing one of those always ruins my suspension of disbelief.

Except the only people who said anything about brandishing weapons were the people dragging the discussion away from the topic, which had nothing to do with that.

The troll's point was to disrupt the conversation by inserting a false detail in it to the conversation to distract people, and apparently it worked.

Chemjeff, Lou and I were talking about marching and signs, not guns. One other person mentioned waving magazines, obviously in reference to David Gregory (who is Above the Law). That's it, no one was talking about waving guns around the White House.

You might as well be disagreeing with the plan to release Pterodactyls over the city, which also doesn't exist.

I wouldn't keep pointing this out, but it seems like *every* time someone has an idea, someone has to drop a rhetorical grenade on the subject and derail everything.
