Off Topic / Re: 5.56 is a antipersonnel round
« on: December 14, 2015, 12:33:12 AM »
So how come the military had to go from 55gr at standard .223 Remington SAAMI pressures to (as much as ) a 90gr bullet at redefined pressures of (let's call it) 62,000 "PSI" and increase the web thickness of the brass  and lengthen the leade of the chamber to reduce bolt thrust to "safe" levels?

And, I am told, had to reduce the "requirements" for military cartridges during testing from penetrating both sides of a GI helmet to only one side at what... 600 yards?

And didja ever notice how many near-wildcat cartridges have been developed commercially to enhance the performance of the AR platform.... constrained, as it is, to .223 cartridge lengths?

Even the Brits were working on a .280 caliber as an intermediate cartridge.  I understand Colt spent millions to con the high-up  military suckers into their AR concept.

That's one of my long-standing bitches.  Years ago I bought a very accurate varmint rifle in .223 Rem on the theory that I would always have military loads and brass.  Yay!  Smart me, huh? I chose this caliber over .22-250 for that reason.  Now I can't use military ammo or brass in my varmint rifle, even though it chambers and (would) fire in it.

Shoulda bought the .22-250.  Or even a triple deuce I drooled over until the gun shop owner told me to stop getting the gun all wet.

So I never miss a chance to zing the military for choosing that barely-100lbvarmint cartridge in the first place... and then having to soup it up and fiddle with cannelures and rifling and chamber pressures and bullet weights  to meet the necessities of reality.

Nyah!   >:D

"5.56 is a antipersonnel round"

And barely that.  More like an anti100lbvarmint round, max.  And barely that, too.

Sadly, probably one of the reasons many Hawaii "gun people" decline to participate here... 

I'm not sure what you meant there.

(1)  "Sadly," less outspoken gun owners in Hawaii don't like the flavor of more explicit statements like mine...
(2)  "Sadly," most Hawaiian gun owners are content with the way things are going, so don't participate in 2ahawaii anyhow.

(1) and (2) can be intermixed, but I wonder which one you are mainly talking about.

My tentative conclusion is that Obama is not a coward or "pussy," but that he has the balls to advance a rather obvious general strategy of destroying America's core values.

He thinks that all the Obamabots will vote in agreement with his destructive policies and thereby  advance the socialist/communist/"liberal" plan to achieve the complete totalitarianism they ultimately desire. 

It's refreshing to note that you guys over there on the Hawaiian site are a lot more outspoken about this than on many other sites.

Keep up the good work!

Quote from edster48:

I long ago came to the conclusion that the progressives { read communists } among us, and especially those infesting our government, will stop at nothing to achieve their goals. To them, the end truly does justify the means. If a few people, or a million, have to die for them to achieve it, they will applaud the fact that they were able to rid the world of so many that stood in the way of their "Great Achievement". Just like Mao, Stalin, Hitler, and Pol Pot. That many of those that died were innocent is just breaking eggs to make an omelet to them.

Spot on !


I'm so pleased that someone else sees this.

In so many ways, "McCarthyism" was wrong.

But in so many ways, "McCarthyism" was right.

Unfortunately, only some of our elders remain to remember this and to recognize the progress "progressivism" has made toward "communism.".

The false flag concept has been brought up before.  It's pretty easy to push a highly passionate self-righteous hotheaded individual into action with a hint here, an agreement there, and a little positive reinforcement over there.

That "pushing" doesn't have to come from the top.

It can be done by like-minded individuals at the middle and lower levels of  "that camp."  All it takes for the idea to germinate and spread is a remark at a party or something to the effect of "I wish we had more attacks like that so we could ban all those damned guns those rednecks have." 

Overheard, others gather to that person and the discussion begins and the idea spreads through mid-or-lower levels of "that camp."  Sooner or later it gets to a person who is brainwashed and weak-minded enough that a few extra pushes, a couple of suggestions, an "approval" here and there, prompts that person to take action.

There doesn't have to be a high-level coordinated plan to do this. Just let the idea quietly spread under the table through the more dedicated members of the group and sooner or later, it'll come to someone daft enough to actualize their passion on the grounds that the end justifies the means.

Let's not forget that "that camp" is remarkably adept at manipulating things psychologically... as in creating terms like "assault rifle" and so forth.  (I assume I need not illustrate that any further.)

But the actors who do this kind of subtle pushing on the targeted individuals have easy deniability, so it's hard to prove.  And they are prone to drop the "paranoia" card to stifle discussion of the possibility.

I note that even the OP felt it necessary to give a disclaimer that he was not a conspiracy theorist.  See how that works?

Nevertheless, false flag operations have been done by smart generals, and the dumb generals fall for them.

Happy thanksgiving all!

We've got a quarter inch of ice all over everything today.  And at its slickest temperature, ~33 degrees.  I feel sorry for all the emergency and police people. And snow will fall on top of that.  Worst thing you could imagine, winter-wise..

Read it and be thankful, you guys in Paradise:

So it turns out that yesterday, November 6th was  "Love Your Lawyer" Day.  No kiddin:

So I shamelessly stole this joke from the discussion on another site:

A man stomps into a bar, obviously angry. He growls at the bartender, "Gimme a beer", takes a slug, and shouts out, "All lawyers are assholes!"

A guy at the other end of the bar retorts, "You take that back!"

The angry man snarls, "Why? Are you a lawyer?"

The guy replies, "No, I'm an asshole!"

From the cited article:


"You see this stuff all over the news and stuff, and you see it happen to all these other schools," but you don't expect it to happen at your school, said Lopez, 21.

Yeah, those statistics always happen to someone else or somewhere else.


So there's obviously no reason for me to carry a self-defense firearm all the time.


Especially no reason to carry one in declared gun-free zones.


After all, I've been carrying for over ten years, and nothing has happened to actually require firing.

Therefore, the statistics indicate that I'll never need one, so it's ridiculous for me to go armed all the time.


Yeah, those statistics always happen to someone else or somewhere else.

I never register any product.  I don't need the extra junk mail after they peddle their data base.

That includes my guns.  Never registered one, never will.  (Unless you count the 4473 as registering.)

Im in Left most lane of the freeway, the fast lane, all of a sudden in front of me I see one KINGS SIZE MATTRESS FLYING, upright, in the air, above all the cars, A MOMENT LATER I SEE ONE BOX SPRING TAKE FLIGHT.  I immediately start to slow down, anticipating to stop.

People forget how much "lift" there is on mattresses and 4X8 Masonite sheets and the like on top of a car at speed.  They form pretty good airfoils like that.  And of course the minute the front end gets lifted, more air can get under them.

Driving is a 110% job.

Drive 1/4 mile ahead of your car if possible.

Register?  No registration in Colorado.  (Unless they slipped something through while I was napping.)

Marijuana Meds?  No.,-card-or-certificate-/

See therein:
Any person who uses or is addicted to marijuana, regardless of whether his or her state has passed legislation authorizing marijuana use for medicinal purposes, is an unlawful user of or addicted to a controlled substance, and is prohibited by federal law from possessing firearms or ammunition.

What the federal government doesn't know won't hurt em.

^Poor advice. Very poor advice.


ETA I see you edited your post, Drakiir84, for clarity.  But the quoted paragraph above still pertains.

You ain't seen nothin' yet, I suspect.  The big bucks, including Bloomberg, Soros' The Joyce Foundation, among others, are ready to pour a lot of money into a disinformation campaign.

You might not see much of a spike in HI, since hyperleftists can pretty much count on it to be mostly anti-firearms, but who knows?

General Discussion / Get ready for a massive propaganda war
« on: August 30, 2015, 07:18:27 AM »
The American Rifleman warned in the September 2015 issue (page 18) that we are entering an extremely well-financed statistical war with the anti-gunners and decried the cherry-picking of numbers that are and will be distorted by the antis.

Quite some years ago the NRA published a list of "lies," with specific counter-arguments to each one.  I expect they will do this again in the near future.

You can expect a deluge of cherry-picked "statistics" to be forthcoming from the antis.

This pro-gun bit of "propaganda" is interesting and amusing. Ya want ya statistics?  I gotcha statistics right here. (Terry grabs crotch):

The limerick, peculiar to English,
Is a verse form that's hard to extinguish,
Once congress, in session,
Decreed its suppression,
But people got around it by writing the last line without any rhyme or meter.
