Firearms / Thermal Weapon Sight Recommendation
« on: June 03, 2020, 08:23:09 PM »
Guys I’ve been wanting to look at thermal weapon sights. Having earmarked some funds for taxes that I won’t have to spend I’m going to get serious about it.  Looking for experienced recommendations and things to look out for.

Intended use: pig hunting
Weapon system: AR platform 5.56/3.08
Requirements: some method of range finding
Don’t care: video recording, pictures, WiFi etc.

I want something rugged and reliable and with good resolution

WILNR - Whiskey Induced Late Night Rant

I've about reached the end of my rope with people who believe that we should take care not to "offend" people.  They live their life worried about what other people think.

Got into a really hot debate with the HH6 tonight about this.  She made the comment "aren't you glad that your truck (with the Redneck license plate) is not parked out in front of our house in Houston?  I told her I am prepared to handle the threat, to which she replied that I would be partly to blame for having that plate that might offend people.  She failed to see the analogy that her statement is like saying the girl with the short skirt was asking to get raped. That led to a very lengthy debate on why I don't care about what other people think.  She continues to insinuate that the license plate would be a reason for people to attack us.  She said she understood some people's anger in the protests. I agreed, but that it is no excuse to riot and break the law.  It should not have taken 3 days to arrest that cop and the other 3 should probably be arrested on lesser charges.  Permissive attitudes like hers is what leads to weak liberal politicians backing off and "letting the protestors get it out of their system". the same ones that turned a blind eye to the officer's 18 other complaints against him.  We are either a nation of laws are we arent and we need to crack down on looters, hard. Just as we should crack down on the minority of LEOs that are bad apples.

She continued to argue that I should acknowledge that some might find my license plate offensive to wit I replied, I dont care.  I could put an American flag on the back and there would be someone who would be offended.  I wear a hat with Infidel on it and I'm sure some would be offended.  I won't change my life or speech to coddle the minority who might find themselves offended.  Redneck is a salt of the earth hard working farmer type and those that choose to make it a racial issue are ignorant and I won't coddle ignorant people either. Unlike her I grew up in diversity and one of my first jobs was in what is one of the roughest parts of black Houston near the corner of MLK and Cullen.  I gained my street creds there and was harrassed constantly by the cops for being in that neighborhood as a white guy.  They figured I was selling or buying dope.  I rolled bones and drank 40s with the guys in the hood and made friends.  These days, in my truck I roll up to convenience stores in black areas and invariably the blacks crack up at the license plate and get the humor in it. "truth in advertising" as I tell them.

In the end we had to just stop talking.  My passion was coming through loud and clear.  I won’t be lectured by someone who hasn’t grown up with diversity.

Rant off.

Firearms / 300blk
« on: April 21, 2020, 10:16:57 PM »
So Bobby posting the Kriss got me thinking about an AR pattern pistol again, a project that has been lurking in the back of my mind for a year.

Those of you who know me know that I favor standardized platforms with interchangeable ammo and parts.  Ar-10, ar-15, Remy 870,glocks,  not withstanding a few novelty pieces (1911s - Ken) and bolt guns.

So here is my dilemma.  I was opposed to AR pistols for years until the “brace” rulings made them very usable and no tax stamp. Sub guns are cute but I really like rifle power if given the choice.  Now that I’m warming to the idea of a very packable AR pattern pistol I know the limitation of the lightweight 5.56 especially at super short barrel lengths and what the loss of velocity does to lethality. That’s why the project has bee gathering dust in my mind for a year. I already have SBRs in 5.56 and a 10 inch barrel is about as short as you can get without compromising the ballistics too drastically.

For years I thought the 300blk was a novelty but after this many years its here to stay.  I like that it uses AR mags and bolts and is really interchangeable with much of the 5.56 stuff I already have. I can also form my own brass from 5.56

Ballistics out of a super short barrel is much better and subsonic still packs a punch.

So I’m debating if I should add 300blk to my inventory and perhaps buy that sig mcx rattler pistol in 300blk.?  I know it’s not an AR per se but aside from form factor what are the pros and cons of adding the 300blk to the stable?

Soldier Up / Shelter in Place workout
« on: April 06, 2020, 12:08:20 PM »
Thought I would post this up for us to share our workout ideas since those of us that can’t get to the gym need to stay in shape and focused. All the preparedness was to get us ready for moments like these and staying in shape is extremely important

So, I was on a 5 day rotation in the gym and now that I’m working remotely and can’t get to the gym, so far I’ve incorporated:

Wheel of death for ab workout
Push-up handles for deep pushups
Jump rope for cardio and coordination

Was searching for a shoulder and back exercise and just found this.

.30 cal ammo can full of 45ACP makes for great dumbbell raises for the shoulders!

I’m now trying to find the right piece of pipe to build a pull up bar

What ideas do you guys have or what is your routine?  Let’s help each other stay motivated and in good shape in the event things get worse

CIEMR / Corona virus
« on: February 07, 2020, 07:50:53 PM »
So, I hate to drop this here but I guess it’s as good as any.  Ive traded some note with some Birkenstock dope smoking hippy from CO who shall remain nameless but the wife has been obsessed with the above ground and underground reports on the Coronavirus. (She was somewhat the same way with Ebola)

So I’ve read that the virus has been decoded to show that it includes portions of HIV and other evidence that it points to man made weaponized versions of the naturally occurring corona virus. We know we cannot trust the Chi Coms in any form and I’ve seen some disturbing videos from China on the very aggressive tactics being used by the government to control the outbreak.

We have 12 cases here in the US.  Can we really trust the US government any more than the Chi Coms?

People are panicking over N95 masks with boxes of 20 going for 400 plus now.

I’m ready come what may and can sit it out in the woods for a year or more but what say ye?  What do you think is really going on and when is it time to pop smoke and retreat to the woods?

D.O.T. / Pilots - I’m jealous
« on: December 11, 2019, 08:45:12 AM »
Being in the air is an amazing invention of the 20th century.  Before that time, men gazed in wonder at the flight of God’s creatures and dreamed of flight.  Mythical stories of Icarus and others dot the history of mankind.

As I saw the sun come up today on a flight, I noticed how the fog and low clouds hug the contours of the earth, just “so”, creating a wonderful tapestry and topography in ways that earth bound man can’t appreciate.

Pilots get to see that, and more, every day.  I’m jealous.

This picture does not do it justice.  By the time I got the camera up it was past the best parts...

Hand Tools, Power Tools, Welders, etc / Powder Coating
« on: October 19, 2019, 06:17:26 PM »
So a while back I bought a HF media blast cabinet and a used oven off CL to get into powder coating.  The HF cabinet has been nothing but trouble from day one. It simply would not suction the media and my compressor was producing a lot of water because of the humidity.

So I added a transmission cooler to the compressor along with an automatic draining water separator. It works wonders for reducing water in the lines.

And after a lot of research I bought a TP tools Scat media blaster gun and pick up tube which has a Siamese tube with a vent to allow air to enter and help the flow of media.

Today I got it all installed and out some new glass bead media in it and it flows really well. The only issue is that I can tell to do any real work on pieces of any size I’m gonna need to step up the compressor to a 5-7hp twin. I sized the nozzle for my compressor and my compressor keeps up but it just doesn’t have the volume necessary to really get pieces done quickly.

Ammo & Reloading / 5.56/.223 reloading
« on: September 21, 2019, 11:22:26 AM »
Since a lot of us shoot and potentially reload the ubiquitous 5.56 (that word was on my Redneck Word Power Calendar as the Word of the Day), I thought I would start a thread about my reloading adventures.

When I started shooting 5.56, you could buy 1000 rounds of mil surp Lake City for $176.  Not so much now which makes reloading a more cost effective endeavor.

For me, 5.56 is a volume play and not an accuracy play.  I’m not weighing and sorting bass and experimenting with seating depths etc.  It’s “minute of scumbag” accurate and good enough for me.  Generally I aim to duplicate the ballistics of factory military ammo like M193 in 55gn and M855 in 62gn.

[/b]Let’s start with a disclaimer:  My loads and my advice are worth just what you are paying for it, meaning nothing.  Consult your own reloading manuals and technical data.  Reloading is dangerous and I’m not responsible for you blowing yourself up or losing an eye.  My recipes and techniques work for me and I’m sharing for the general good.  Use common sense and if you don’t have any, don’t reload. Buy factory ammo, save your brass and send it to me.[/b]

CIEMR / Never Forget
« on: September 11, 2019, 06:46:41 AM »
Never forget.

As I sit here with my BRCC CAF 18 years later, Satan is still in control of evil on this planet that includes a so called religion that believes that killing innocent people in the name of Allah is the pathway to heaven.

So much time has passed there are people of legal voting age that weren’t even alive to see what happened that day.

And today we have the proverbial camel’s nose under the tent with Ilhan Omar, AOC, Rashid Talib and Pressley in congress as America hating, Jew hating democrats who I believe secretly believe we deserved to be attacked.

As Omar said, “some bad people did something”

I say. “Never forget”. Evil is here amongst us.

Firearms / Glock mods
« on: August 20, 2019, 10:54:27 PM »
So a while back...quite a while back I promised to do a detailed write up on some of my favorite glock mods.

As a teaser I’ll start this and work on it this weekend

Since I was getting a recipe dialed in last week I wanted to crono the ammo in a full size pistol. I only had my G30 with a 3.78 bbl length. My G21 is in the safe next to the bed in Houston so I had to scrounge through the stash and pull out a NIB Glock 21 genIII for testing. Now that I opened the box it’s only fitting that I keep shooting it and that means I need to do my favorite mods.

First up will be the Ghost Rocket trigger disconnect that reduces the pull to 3.5 lbs and allows precise adjustment of overtravel.

Then an extended mag release and some trijicon night sights and the maritime firing pin spring cups

Firearms / Perfect Excuse
« on: August 06, 2019, 06:14:36 PM »
So as some of you know I spent a week hiking around the mountains in Grand Teton and Yellowstone with the family.

I knew we were going into bear country in the summertime and I really wanted to bring my 10mm G20 with the aftermarket barrel and hopped up 210gn loads.  But alas, getting the family out the door at 4:45 am to get to the airport was enough to make me not want to check a weapon in my baggage because of the 30 extra minutes it take to find someone who knows the protocol and doesn’t scream out “hey what do we do about a gun?” And it wouldn’t be the first time my luggage was delayed because of the extra screening.

However, after being in WY and seeing all the people with bells and bear spray, I felt like a guy in a gun battle that thinks a cardboard box is cover.

(As an aside:  How do you tell the difference between black bear scat and grizzly scat?  Black bear scat is full of grubs and berries. Grizzly scat is fully of bells, human bones, and smells like pepper spray)

So I went on my merry way with the family in tow with my little bell ringing and a big bottle of bear spray....

Doing a great deal of reading on bear behavior and dealing with a bear attack (we plan on making that trip many more times) I felt really bad for being lazy and not pack a weapon.

However as much as I think my hopped up 10mm would be sufficient, I apparently misjudged the requirement for bear.

So, I think I may have found a great excuse for a ultra big bore handgun and so the search begins.

Despite S&W quality and other problems, they are really the only one who makes a weapon that is a no doubter on bear, namely the 460 and the 500.  Ruger has the 454 casul and 480 Ruger, but the fall woefully short of the ballistics of the 500.

So looking at the 500S&W with 4 inch barrel. (And maybe a face guard for when that beast recoils into my face...)

What say the menses out there?

Though I didn’t serve,  these things have to be disturbing to those who have.

Based on the charges and the way he was pursued, its clear to me that the ROE have changed over the years to handicap our war fighters who now have to second guess themselves in the heat of a fight.  “Will I be courtmartialed for this if I get it wrong?”

We are turning our war fighters into cops.  Soon they’ll be wearing body cameras and second guessed by civilians ever time they pull a trigger.

War should, by necessity, be ugly, really really ugly.  Horrifying.  We should enter into it only as a last resort and after much contemplation.  However when we do we should send some hard men to do some really dirty work and kill people and break things effectively and efficiently and then get out quickly.  Our fighting men are not cops and they should not be treated as such.

First step to correct this ought to be to no longer allow embedded reporting. 

I would be curious to hear from our current and former war fighters here.

Construction and Building / Engineering Help
« on: May 16, 2019, 07:32:59 AM »
Is there a real man here that has access to engineering software that can help me with deflection calculations for a timber beam?

It’s been 30 years since I had to use calculus and I really don’t want to spend 2 days fumbling through a calculation trying to reeducate myself.

I can provide the load, span and modulus of elasticity and beam cross section if someone has access to software.

What I am attempting to do is design a simple outdoor structure to support a roof for an outdoor kitchen.  The main calculation will be for a simple span of 24 feet with evenly distributed load using a single southern pine timber beam.  Just trying to figure out if a 6x12 will work or if I have to go deeper to a 14.  Or if its not possible do I have to break the span to 2 12 ft spans

Thank you gentlemen

CIEMR / 12 places to invest money in the next election cycles
« on: March 16, 2019, 08:25:26 AM »
This is, indeed a Coffee Induced Early Morning Rant.  Up at 0300 and well caffinated

I'm am sick and tired, no, very angry that supposed Republican's continue to fail to support our President.  The facts are clear and the law is clear.

You can research border facts here.  https://www.fairus.org/issues/illegal-immigration

Ken and I live in border states and can attest to the degrading cities that are a result of unchecked mass illegal immigration.

These so called republicans voted against the president and its time to send them a message and send them home for not supporting the most conservative president we've had since Regan.  I'll come back and update with their re-election years since they werent up for reelection in 2020 they thought they could weather the storm.  We will not forget.

Especially Rubio.  That jackass should have learned from his failed presidential bid.  The only reason he lost is because people remembered he signed on to the Gang of Eight amnesty bill.

 Here are the 12 GOP senators who defied Trump and voted in favor of the resolution and their statements. 

    Rand Paul of Kentucky: "Every single Republican I know decried President Obama's use of executive power to legislate. We were right then. But the only way to be an honest officeholder is to stand up for the same principles no matter who is in power."

    Mitt Romney of Utah: "We experienced a similar erosion of congressional authority with President Obama's unilateral immigration orders — which I strenuously opposed. In the case before us now, where Congress has enacted specific policy, to consent to an emergency declaration would be both inconsistent with my beliefs and contrary to my oath to defend the constitution."

    Marco Rubio of Florida: "We have an emergency at our border, which is why I support the president''s use of forfeiture funds and counter-drug money to build a wall. However, I cannot support moving funds that Congress explicitly appropriated for construction and upgrades of our military bases. This would create a precedent a future president may abuse to jumpstart programs like the Green New Deal, especially given the embrace of socialism we are seeing on the political left."

    Mike Lee of Utah: "This is not about the president. This is not about my disagreement with or disapproval of the president or his approach to border security or his approach to build a barrier along our southern border. I think all those things need to happen. But this law, Mr. President, is wrong. It's not President Trump's fault. It's Congress'. We need to change it."

    Roy Blunt of Missouri: "This issue will be settled in the courts. That could take months and result in future Presidents having emergency authority to use in other ways...I was aggressively opposed to the Obama administration's attempts to circumvent Congress's appropriating authority to prop up Obamacare. The same principle should apply regardless of which party occupies the White House."

    Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania: "This is not about border security.It's about the process the president has chosen for funding that policy...The biggest concern is that it's very, very important that we honor the constitutional responsibility that is assigned to Congress to determine spending."

    Lisa Murkowski of Alaska: "I take very seriously my oath to uphold the Constitution, and my respect for the balance within the separation of powers. Article 1 provides that the power to appropriate lies with the legislative branch...We can and must address the President's very legitimate concerns over border security, but we must not do it at the expense of ceding Congress' power of the purse."

    Susan Collins of Maine: "By declaring a national emergency, the President's action comes into direct conflict with Congress' authority to determine the appropriation of funds — a power vested in Congress by the framers of our Constitution in Article 1, Section IX. That is why this issue is not about strengthening our border security, a goal that I support..Rather, Mr. President, it is a solemn occasion involving whether or not this body will stand up for its institutional prerogatives and will support the separation of powers enshrined in our Constitution."

    Roger Wicker of Mississippi: "I am concerned about the precedent an emergency declaration sets, which might empower a future liberal President to declare emergencies to enact gun control or to address 'climate emergencies,' or even to tear down the wall we are building today...The system of checks and balances established by the Founders has preserved our democracy. It is essential that we protect this balance even when it is frustrating or inconvenient."

    Rob Portman of Ohio: "The Congress, not the president, has the sole authority to determine how to spend the money. Although there is a crisis on the southern border, we are not in war time. Today I will vote to support the disapproval resolution."

    Lamar Alexander of Tennessee: "I support the president on border security...But his declaration to take an additional $3.6 billion that Congress has appropriated for military hospitals, barracks and schools is inconsistent with the US Constitution that I swore an oath to support and defend...This declaration is a dangerous precedent."

    Jerry Moran of Kansas: "I share President Trump's goal of securing our borders, but expanding the powers of the presidency beyond its constitutional limits is something I cannot support."
