September 11th rememberance instead of drinking game.

I saw this posted by Wayne Thompson on Facebook –

Today, on the eve of 9/11, I remember. This day is not a holiday, not a vacation day. It is not a cause for celebration, relaxation, parades or the like. It is a solemn reminder that evil walks this earth. On this 13 th anniversary I remember.

I remember the cowards who murdered innocent people. I remember the radical terrorist that killed in the name of their religion. I remember the towers, 4 planes, and the Pentagon.

I also remember the heroes. Not just the brave military, police, fire and EMS personnel but all patriots and heroes. The teachers, preachers, construction workers, nurses, doctors, and many others from different backgrounds, faiths, and job descriptions who rushed in to help. The brave heroes who fought back and prevented another aircraft from killing those it was destined to hit.

I remember that the healing is not over. The battle is not won. The fight still continues. But as long as we have Patriots we will overcome.

David writes:

OK, please, when talking about scopes and such, you start using terms, such as, first and second focal planes and also parallax. What the heck does that mean?  Please explain as if you’re writing the book SCOPES FOR DUMMIES.

  • Variable vs. Fixed
  • Illuminated
  • FFP vs. Second Focal Plane
  • Elevation – Mil/MOA turrets
  • Wind Turret
  • Parallax
  • Focus
  • Magnification
  • Glass
  • Reticle
  • Subtend
  • Ocular Lens
  • Objective  Lens
  • Eye Relief
  • Field of View
  • Explanation of the numbers:  5x-25x 40  40mm objective lens size in diameter – bigger, more light, etc.
  • Tube size – one inch tube, 30mm, 34mm, etc.  This will determine the size of rings you need.
  • “Minutes of Angle” (MOA). This is a unit of measurement of a circle, and is 1.0472 at 100 yards. For all practical purposes it is called 1 inch at 100 yards. It is 2 inches at 200 yards, 5 inches at 500 yards, one half inch at 50 yards, etc.

Going ballistic with Savage1r (news stories, gun control, etc.)


Gun companies don’t get a worse deal than porn/adult companies.

First, adult material companies can only accept major credit cards by going through a a payment processor approved by them. Those companies have to charge $750 to open an account. Those companies then typically charge 17.5% per transaction.

On top of that Mastercard charge $500 per year per account which gets passed on to the adult material companies.

Forget Paypal, they will close accounts connected to adult material and freeze any funds in that account.

On top of that, the federal government passed 18 U.S.C 2257 quite a few years ago requiring all documented ID of adult talent be held by the company indefinitely. Thank Jemma Jameson for that. One of the by products of that wonderful piece of legislation is that if you have pictures of your partner, wife, girlfriend, boyfriend, ex girlfriend, boyfriend, wife, husband… then technically, by law you have to have a signed model release and a copy of their ID recorded or you can face prosecution.

I did not tell you any of this… my name is unattached to this knowledge…

F-ing hilarious, oh and informative!!

Rating: 5 Stars

These guys are awesome! They do a fantastic job of combining comedy and pertinent information of firearms and firearms equipment. By far the best podcast with a panel that’s currently out there, hands down! Lastly it’s important to know in this review of how Shawn, “the ring leader”, is very good at interacting with their listeners. I’m sure he is very busy with this podcast and personal life, yet takes the time to respond to Facebook posts. This is a must in your podcast playlist!!! Keep it up guys 🙂
