I think it is a shame that we can't have those annoying Amazon ads on! If this site were an Amazon Associate, we could also sell useless shit to other people on the internet. Imagine the lost profit potentials because Amazon management are assholes!

Imagine the market for Long Pork and Face cookbooks. I bet AF and I could publish such a book and it would fetch a pretty penny! The secret is to use lots of garlic and wild onions to hide that distinct smell of seared flesh. What would be the going rate for 10 lbs of shit stuffed in a 5 lb bag and marketed as fertilizer? I bet that would sell out faster than the rate at which I could fill up the bags up.

Now if someone pulls out a 1911 and puts of few .45 ACP rounds though the brains of this menacing and threatening robot, I would applaud them.

Part of me wonders if knocking it over on its side and then taking a baseball bat to it Michael Bolton style is in the cards for the anti gun Californian? How many of these things would have to be destroyed before the retailer gave up on them?

Forget Pokemon Go. We should make a Robotocide Geo Tagging game out of destroying these robots in the most creative ways possible and posting it online. Bonus points goes to the man that uses a flail.

BayArea says

Most engines don't require these and it is more important that you change the oil at regular intervals with conventional motor oil of the appropriate spec called out by the owner's manual.

Pure FUD. The only way to determine if the oil needs to be changed is by pulling a sample and analyzing it. Most people won't go that far and just change the oil well before the oil has broken down or been depleted of the additives.

If you really wanted to run an engine for a long time and avoid engine wear, you really need a bypass filter that can filter out the sub-micron particles and keep the added chemicals in spec. Oil becomes depleted of the additives long before the actual breaks down. The only way to know if the chemicals are depleted is to analyze the oil. Car companies just pick a mileage number that will cover most driving habits. Why do you think Subaru went from a 7.5k interval to a 6k interval the next year?

I put about 700 miles on my car a week (2010 Subaru Impreza) but I have extended the oil change interval to 10k by using Mobil 1's top grade synthetic and Mobil 1 filter. The only problem with doing this is that extending out the oil changes and letting the sump get depleted from normal oil loss past the piston rings usually does not end well. One of the only negatives about the flat 4 is that it burns oil faster than any other engine design that I have owned. I have to add a quart every 3 k miles to keep the sump at the high mark.

The real basis for the short interval changes are normal oil losses (people too lazy or stupid to check the oil level at the gas station) or the additives are out of spec low.

Buy the 5 quart container of Mobil 1 for $25 at Walmart.

I could not agree more! I would add that changing the oil yourself is also a good idea. I doubt even the factory trained techs at the dealerships follow the manuals. Buy a Craftsman torque wrench, the Toyota oil filter tool, and single use crush gaskets (if the car uses it) and you can get the change time down to 10 minutes of actual work. The old oil can be put in the oil canister that you the new oil came in and turned in to recycle.

I will add that of all the heads that I have pulled off an engine, the engines that used synthetic oils always seemed to have the original holning marks still visible in the cylinders. Synthetic is far superior to conventional oils and the tests consistently show this.

My question is, is there a "better" time of year to put your contributions in, a la "buy low, sell high"? "Sell in May", would seem to indicate that the 2nd quarter might be a good time to be "buying" via contributions.

You are better off buying stocks when the full moon is going into a Lunar Eclipse as the moon crosses Sagittarius A.

For added returns on top of your "ok gains", you would need to get a few virgins to sacrifice on the alter of your local bank for the sole purpose of pleasing the sky wizards. Make sure you collect the blood of the sacrifice victims and bath in it 14 days later when the new moon arrives. Your profits would easily double!

That my friend is the only logical way of timing today's stock market.

I am wondering if the department violated an unwritten policy to obfuscate and cover for the deputy's crime. There is going to be hell to pay when the thin blue line turns on the law enforcement officer that investigated this incident. What is the use of abusing your power with impunity if there is no guarantee that you will get protection when your ass is on the line.

Bilirubin treatment? Bilirubin is a toxic compound made from the break down of hemoglobin. A light source in the range of 450 nm to 500 nm is used to photoisomerize Bilirubin so it can be excreted from the body and maintain the Bilirubin concentrations at safe levels?

Thanks for the input.

I shot a Mini-14 (223) last weekend which is technically a carbine. Also got to shoot an AR15. Both were great, i shot much better with the AR15.

I own a few Ruger products but I will never own a Mini-14. The earlier model's rifling rates were too slow to properly stabilize the heavier grain .223 Remington rounds. The Mini-14 was designed for the lighter loads in the 45 grain size. Keep in mind too that some older guns chambered in the .223 are not designed to safely handle the 5.56x45 loads. The 5.56x45 produces higher pressures and can damage older .223 firearms. I doubt you will see that problem today because everything new that I see in the .223/5.56x45 caliber are designed to use either round.

I agree with you on the AR-15. The modular design opens up so many options. The AR-15 is the gun world's open source standard. I also like that the standard iron sights are optimized for having a "good" zero from 25 yards to 300 yards without making any elevation adjustments. You can also put different sized uppers on the receivers to fire many different calibers. I have seen 9mm, .45 ACP, 300 blackout, .22 LR, .50 Beowulf, and .450 Bushmaster all fired from the same gun just by swapping the uppers. As an added bonus, you can use a standard 5.56x45 magazine to hold the 300 Blackout, .450 Bushmaster and .50 Beowulf calibers. I have seen a .50 BMG bolt action upper that will fit any standard AR-15 lower. Good luck coming up with the money to feed it. The guy said .

I am "old school" when it comes to handguns. My preferred handgun is the 1911.

Thanks for the input, open source lingo for the AR, I like that!

thenuttyneutron says

My preferred handgun is the 1911.

Why is this?

The 1911 is a semi-auto pistol designed by John Browning and was used by the US military from 1911 until 1986. My grandfather flew the A-20 in WW2 and this was his sidearm. He always spoke fondly of it. It is chambered in .45 ACP, which is a caliber with a proven track record. I have also seen .380 versions.

The reason I use it is simple.... it works. It has been out for over a century and there are many parts available for it. I love the single action operation, the ease of trigger pull and how well it is balanced to allow for fast follow up shots. There are many manufactures of it as well. You can get the cheap Rock Island version for about $450 used or go with the Kimber for a lot more. Like the AR-15, this gun is also "open source".

While I agree with the choice of the 7.62x39 caliber (my favorite), you could have bought a much better gun for just a little bit more money. The CMMG Mutant is an AR platform chambered in 7.62x39 that accepts any standard AK magazine (even drums) with all the ergonomic benefits of the AR platform. It is also built to eat steel case ammo. The metallurgy of the barrel is also superior. They use a case hardening process where they use a molten salt containing lots of carbon and nitrogen to form a very hard layer around the entire barrel of the rifle to a depth of a few microns. They call it salt bath nitriding. This case hardened exterior is extremely tough and hard. You could run many rounds through it an never see any wear.

Along with the top notch barrel, they designed this platform to accept basic AR-15 parts like triggers, and butt stocks. The bolt carrier of this rifle is also a great innovation. Instead of milling out a 5.56x45 bolt to accept the 7.62x39 case, they started with an AR-10 bolt (7.62x51), cut the bolt carrier down by a few inches, and made a custom lower and upper. The bolt carrier group is not as large as the AR-10 but a lot beefier than the AR-15.

It comes with a nice free floating hand guard that is either Keymod or Mlok depending on your preference. On my Mutant I have a simple QD Sling swivel mounting point and a set of Mbus Pro Iron sights. The Mbus Pro sights are awesome because they have a M1 style aperture sight system with both elevation and windage adjustments on the rear sight and elevation adjustments on the front sight. The sight radius of my Mutant Rifle is 21" which is 1" longer than an AR-15 A2 setup.

I took the rifle to an Appleseed event over the weekend and was getting quarter sized groups from a seated position at 25 meters. I can usually keep it to about 3 MOA at 100 yards in the prone position. I have shot it with limited success at 500 yards. The round is just not designed for the extreme ranges that a full powered rifle round like the .308 or .30-06 will give you. I was however able to adjust the rear sight to raise the elevation by 12 MOA to mortar the rounds in (7.62x39 has about a 63 inch drop at 500 yards) and was getting about 50% hits on a 24" steel plate at 500 yards.

I don't like the AK platform for rifle calibers. My opinion changes if you use the AK platform in a shotgun because that is where the AK platform shines. The AK sights just plain suck and adding aftermarket sights with a long sight radius is just not an option with the dust cover design. The "looseness" of the gun that makes it so reliable also reduces the precision of the rounds.

The only thing that I don't like about the Mutant is the lack of a bolt hold open device. This is not an oversight of CMMG because the AK was never designed with a bolt hold open feature and there is no way to make one work with the standard AK magazine. You would have to trade off the many options of AK magazines for a more expensive magazine redesign in order to get this feature. The fact that I can buy 40 rounds of steel cased TulAmmo for $10 at Walmart makes me think that CMMG made the right choice.

Disclaimer I am not a CMMG employee nor do I have a financial interest in their company. I just happen to like this brand a lot after seeing, buying and, using many of their innovative products over the last few years. Their dedicated .22 LR uppers and .22 LR conversion kits for the AR-15 has been some of the best money that I have spend on firearms. They just announced their new Guard rifle which is an AR platform chambered in the .45 ACP (accepts Glock 21 magazines). I was puzzled at first expecting it to be another one of those direct blowback designs with a 5 lb bolt. To my delight and a pleasant surprise, they figured out a way to make a delayed blowback system that allows them to use a much lighter bolt.

CMMG Mutant

The Muzzle brake on the end really reduces the recoil based on my comparison to how a Yugoslavian SKS feels. The guys off to your sides on the firing line however may not like the concussive muzzle blasts that are being directed at them.

A nice bolt action custom build probably. I want to get into long distance target shooting.

Take a look at the Ruger Scout Rifles. They come in a 7.62x51 (.308) or 5.56x45 (.223) flavor. The Scout rifle has a Mauser style bolt, detachable box magazine, iron sights, and the ability to mount a standard optic over the bolt or a scout scope forward of the receiver. The other alternatives would be a M1 Garand, M1A, or a standard AR-15 A2 with a 20" barrel.

You should also go attend an Appleseed to learn the skills and techniques for shooting a rifle at long ranges. Their metric for success is shooting at 4 MOA or better using nothing but your self, a USGI web sling, and the rifle.

Did you make Rifleman score?

Yes. I scored a 210 (minimum score for Rifleman) last year, and a 212 last Winter with a Ruger 10/22. The Ruger 10/22 is has some Techsights on it and I used CCI Minimag ammo (40 grain). I also scored a 211 last weekend with a RRA NM A2 AR-15. I shot 55 grain American Eagle bulk ammo.

I am signed up for a KD (Known Distance) event in June. I plan to use my RRA NM rifle and American Eagle 62 grain M855 bulk ammo for this event.

I took a job that was in Lisle, IL back in 2015. I never relocated my family to Illinois nor did I establish residency there. I simply lived out of a hotel during the week and commuted home to Ohio on weekends. I started working in DFW at the start of the new year and I am so glad to be filling out my last Illinois 1040-R tax form.

This state is horrible and has little redeeming qualities. I will never support a Federal Bailout for this state that is too fucking stupid to govern themselves. How about this idea? If they go bankrupt and go into receivership to the Federal Government, they become a territory of the USA and lose ALL representation in Washington DC. No senators, no representatives and no ability to become a state for many years. If they want to become a state again, they would have to pay back all monies used to bail them out.

I'm on board with the sarcasm, hence my comment. But let's all be honest here, isn't this what is actually going on? Again, I dig the comment, but when does this not become funny anymore? For me in IL the chickens are coming home to roost. I literally have a contingency plan to move out of this state. I'm not kidding at all. Why should I need to do this? Oh wait, borrowing $100B will fix this.

I feel empathy for you but Illinois is not my problem. You need to get the hell out of Illinois and make it someone else's problem. This may require you to sell your house at a huge discount. Just don't wait too long because many other people like you are going to be doing the same thing. Hell you may not be able to give the house away when the massive exodus is at its peak.

Look at states like Ohio that have low property taxes and a moderate income tax. Retired people with smaller incomes pay little income tax and this benefits older people.

Why is Ohio your least favorite state? I think that it is a very good state to live in.

My income tax is reasonable ~5%. My property taxes are low at about $2600 per year for a house that cost me $300 k to build. The sales tax is about 6%.

Ohio is also a state that respects civil rights.

The only thing that sucks are the winters. The summers however more than make up for it.

OH is not bad-just the toll roads are a killer.

The only toll road that I am aware of is the Ohio Turnpike. It was cheap to use as well with an EZ pass. Chicago has toll roads all over the place. I commuted between Ohio and Chicago for a few years and there is only one complaint from me about Ohio. They enforce the speed limits so you had better not get caught speeding.

I just moved back to the DFW area and it reminds me of Shitcago. I think Dallas is just the "Chicago" of Texas. Dallas is also in trouble with pensions. Thus is why I plan to live in Tarrant County.

This one made me laugh. A guy cuts the barrel of his AR-15 in half in protest to these rifles being in the hands of civilians. He violated the NFA by creating an illegal SBR (short barrel rifle) on video and then posted it online. Illegal manufacture of a SBR without paying the stamp tax of $200 and getting ATF approval carries a minimum 10 year prison sentence.

AR-15 is considered a modern sporting rifle and does not meet the definition of an assault rifle because it does not have a select fire capability.

There are some AR-15s that were legally registered as machine guns with the ATF prior to the 1986 deadline. An auto-sear could be added to the AR-15 to allow it to be an automatic rifle. The auto-sear simply kept the hammer from falling until the bolt was fully in battery with the trigger being pulled. This is no longer possible legally for a civilian to do. You can however apply for the machine gun stamp and buy a pre-ban registered receiver.

AR-15 does not belong to any of the above categories - it's best described as a sporting rifle or "civilian rifle".

Yep. It is mainly a sporting rifle, it just looks scary.

The AR15 fires a 223 caliber bullet, actually is approximately the same weight as a 22LR, just traveling at higher speed.

The .223 is in the middle. If a nut case was really serious about killing, there are a bunch more larger and more powerful rounds to fire, which are the ones hunters use. Hardly anyone hunts with a .223, not powerful enough. It's used for getting rid of varmints on the farm.

The 300 AAC "Blackout" is one of my favorite calibers. I own three different uppers for my AR-15s in this caliber. The standard AR-15 magazine can be used to feed the 300 AAC.

The .223 is indeed a varmint round but it is also specifically made to be extremely lethal by tumbling violently when it gets into something denser than air. This is one of the reasons that the military adopted this civilian varmint round to be used in their new infantry rifle. The original M-16 A1 models had a 1 in 12" twist rate that was barely enough to stabilize the bullets in hot humid air. These same rounds would keyhole at 100 yards in dense arctic air. This is why you now see 1 in 7" or 1 in 8" twist rates being standard. The faster twist also allows much heavier rounds to be stabilized.

This tumbling is sensitive to speed. Once the bullet slows to about 2,600 fps, it will not tumble and tear apart. The shorter 14.5" barrels of the M-4 reduces the range that these bullets are able to tumble. The same can be said for the AR-15 with a 16" barrel.

This may be why we are hearing about survivors of these mass shootings being hit multiple times with an AR-15. Had they been hit with a M193 (55 grain 5.56x45) out of an AR-15 using a 20" barrel with a slower 1 in 12" twist rate, I doubt anyone would survive a single hit to the center of mass.

If you want to reduce damage of these guns, the DNC should push to repeal the NFA SBR provisions and then run a huge brain washing campaign showing people fighting zombies with SBR AR-15s while laughing and smiling at the "dead" zombies. The DNC would easily get the support of the RNC in removing the SBR provisions and this would save me $200 for the tax stamp that I plan on applying for soon.

I'm a bit confused, it sounds like you are saying that if someone shot up a school with a 22 they would be able to cause the same amount of casualties as someone with an AR-15.

Guess what, I'm not buying it.

I bet a .22 LR could be as lethal as the .223 with the right setup and situation. Simply pull the .22 bullets from the cases of a CCI Stinger and replace them with tracer bullets or white phosphorous with a lead jacket. At close ranges, these bullets would be able to penetrate into a person and burn for a bit in the victim.

The .223 and 5.56x45 use a 0.224" caliber bullet design. The .22 LR is a 0.222" caliber design. This is where the similarities end. While I don't reload .22 LR, I have dissected the caliber and it holds about 4 grains of powder. I put about 28 grains of CFE 223 in my 5.56x45 reloads.

The hottest .22 LR has about 4 grains of a fast burning powder. Average speed of a .22 LR Stinger is 1600 fps. The .223 is about 3,200 fps from a 20" barrel and is double the velocity. Since KE goes up as the square of velocity, the .223 55 grain load is a bit more than 4 times as powerful as the hottest .22 LR.

While I don't reload .22 LR

If you can find a way to reload a rim-fire cartridge like a .22, I'll take my hat off to you. Not saying it can't be done, but I will be impressed.

It is possible to reload a .22 lr but it is not easy or worth my time.

I reload .223, 300 aac, .308, .30-06, and .45 acp. Most of my .223 cases are converted into 300 aac cases with a chop saw and then running it through my resizing die. I have a ton of different .308" caliber bullets because they are used in three of my reloaded calibers.

I have heard of people reusing .22 lr brass to make a jacket for a home made .224" bullet for use in a .223.

I have fired both the 44 Magnum in a revolver and a Henry Big Boy classic. This cartridge pairs very well with a long gun. I highly recommend the .45 ACP over a 44 Magnum when it comes to handguns but I would take the 44 Magnum over the .45 ACP in a carbine.

Ears? If your ears are bothering you, you may not have picked out the best hearing protection. Find foam ear plugs with a 33 db reduction rating. You can use those less effective muffs with the plugs and get an even better db reduction. If you can move to a NFA friendly state, a suppressor would help a lot with the ear safety.

Another safety tip, keep your hands away from the sides of the cylinder, Revolvers spray tons of burning gases out the side where the cylinder lines up with the barrel. You appear to be holding it correctly in the video so this comment is simply a reminder.

Author's just made because they aren't open on Sunday.

The only day I don't like Chick Fil-a is on Sundays.

They were so distraught and upset it wasn't a AR15, but a shotgun. I guess in their depressed state, they just combined the two together to make their own version.

The MSM does not care about facts. Semi-auto shotguns do exist but they are no where near as reliable as a pump action. Maybe the MSM is gunning for this?

These Saiga shotguns are still around but they can no longer be imported into the USA and thus command a very high price if you can find one for sale. You used to be able to get them in 12 gauge, 20 gauge, and 410 gauge until they were banned from import by the Obama administration. The imported guns were sold in a "sporting" configuration which means no pistol grip and the fire control group was pushed back and had a Rube-Goldberg mechanism that connected the trigger to the hammer release.

There were domestic firearms parts manufacturers in the USA that made conversion kits that comply with the 922r rules to restore these shotguns to the correct configuration. These kits moved the fire control groups forward to the correct receiver holes, installed a pistol grip, and allowed for the use of an adjustable stock. If you were handy with a hand held drill, you could drill out the rivets and remove all of the garbage added to make it a "sporting" configuration.

The only problem with this gun is that it does not like to run on low brass ammunition without a lot of gun smithing. The gun requires a lot of tuning to the gas system, and lapping work to the bolt to polish it up in order to reduce the internal friction.

The Saiga shotgun is nothing more than a modified AK-47 patterned firearm that shoots shotgun shells.

This is one of the reasons that I love Ohio so much and wish that I did not have to move back to Texas. Ohio also recognizes the rights of free people to legally open carry without a permission slip (conceal carry). Ohio law preempts any local gun laws meaning that you can walk in the down town areas of major cities with an AR-15 strapped to your back and the city can do nothing about it.

Texas completely sucks in this regard because they do not recognize gun rights for people choosing to open carry. Shortly after moving there I ran into a guy trying to sign people up for a CC class that he was running while browsing guns at Cabelas. When I mentioned open carry, he got all defensive and stated that he does not support open carry. WTF! You either support gun rights or you don't. I can make a compelling argument that open carry is better safety wise.

I wish that I were single and 10 years younger because I would love to go out on a date with a woman like this.

real purpose of the QE was to prevent a depression. It worked.

Negative. It was to assign losers in the games of economics at a later date rather than the banking system. The system is too full of bad debt that will never be paid back. The bad debt is still there and has not gone away. It will have to be written off at some point in the future which means someone is going to get fucked.

It is sad, such beauty. I was recently talking to a liberal woman who supported illegal immigration and was saying trump was heartless. I changed the subject to career etc and she started to complain about how difficult it was to egt good paying jobs, there was no job security anymore.

I was going to bring it up, but then I realized if her own brain cannot connect the two-then why bother? How can you not connect the two??

You should have asked about the car insurance rates. I recently moved from Ohio to Texas. My car insurance rates trippled. I looked into it and found out that the major cause of it was the large numbers of uninsured drivers, many illegally here.

You also have to look at the collective resources such as roads, water, and schools. All of these are being strained as the number of people using them goes up.

The leftist have gone crazy and are on a suicide mission.

The Housing Trap
You're being set up to spend your life paying off a debt you don't need to take on, for a house that costs far more than it should. The conspirators are all around you, smiling to lure you in, carefully choosing their words and watching your reactions as they push your buttons, anxiously waiting for the moment when you sign the papers that will trap you and guarantee their payoff. Don't be just another victim of the housing market. Use this book to defend your freedom and defeat their schemes. You can win the game, but first you have to learn how to play it.
