    I’ve also read many forum posts saying you shouldn’t dry-fire without them or you risk wearing away at your firing pin/striker. I don’t have much experience with that particularly so I couldn’t say yea or nay, but I love them anyways. I don’t take any new toy to the range without first getting the snap caps for that caliber and practicing all the functions thoroughly.

    Yup. Problem is, down there it’s a good time of year to leave the doors and windows open. After April you don’t do that because it’s not like the dry heat like you have down there in Texas, Arizona, Nevada, etc.

    I wonder if the thugs were “locals” from East Orlando or “imports” from Crime Hills (AKA Pine Hills) or other wonderful parts of West Orlando. I remember when West Orlando was a beautiful place to live about 20 years ago, now it seems they can’t go a week without a bank robbery.

    The unlocked apartments are pretty typical of students. They are either too ignorant, intoxicated or wanting to keep their doors “open” for friends to drop by any time.

    This is a must watch on the topic of the Exodus:

    Usually insecticides have a federal warning that it is a punishable offense to use the product in a manner not prescribed, like for personal defense instead of killing ants. They’re considered low-level nerve agents and Comrade Holder would love nothing more than to charge you with chemical warfare and terrorism for having the audacity to defend yourself.

    Roger that. It did take a huge toll on him, but it seems like he would dwell on the deaths of his team mates and Marines more than on his “kills” as a whole. As far as the people in his scope, he seems to have had closure on that by the time the trigger reset.

    I see both sides of the issue, but the critics are simply wrong. Having read the book, I know there are , in fact, parts where Kyle does in fact call insurgents (not all Iraqis) savages and that he enjoyed his work and felt no sympathy for those who would do harm. The libs who WANT to depict him as a maniac (like the deranged Ed Schultz) will single these out and not take those parts in the context of the whole book. That’s how you know they haven’t read it.

    If they had, they’d know that Kyle was grieved at having to shoot women and children when they presented a threat as well as when the insurgents committed violence against or disregarding the lives of their own people. He also enjoyed working closely with the Iraqis when the tribal elders realized the insurgency was a liability and needed to get kicked out of their province.

    He did sound “flippant” at times but if you wanted to be intellectually honest you’d also have to take that in the context of the man as a whole as well as the experience that he went through.

    Nick “The Reaper” Irving is the heat.

    He’s got a book out that’s supposed to be pretty good too. I’ve read excerpts and sounds pretty intense.

    They need to retool it, reorganize it and rename it. Call it something like “Current TV”. Or something…

    Seems like a cavalier attitude that may not consider other factors, like increasing the likelihood of high-risk pregnancies if they manage to get pregnant at all. You can’t freeze your hormonal profile and how a young female body responds to pregnancy vs an older female body. Good for you if you have the money to brute force it, but it still increases the risk to the child.
    I understand wanting to take measures to heed the call to be a mother if you haven’t found the right person and feeling time slip away, but for careers? That’s just not wanting to give your child the gift of your youth. Child is not priority number 1, they’re just another milestone in the program. I speak as a parent who wishes they’d done more with the free years before having a child, but I don’t regret it one moment.

    This guy isn’t the “point man” who fired the first shot into UBL. He was one of the two, along with “Mark Owen” that came in immediately after that and shot him while he was squirming on the ground when they had entered the room after point man. His account in the Esquire piece is embellished to indicate he was the first one to shoot UBL. Even fellow SEALs call Owen’s account way more credible than O’Neil’s.

    He seems to have served well, but couldn’t resist the temptation to embellish and gloat, so much so he was reprimanded by command for running his mouth at a Virginia Beach bar when they got back from the mission. I’ll watch just to see if he sticks to his story or backtracks.

    I don’t oppose OC legislation. I agree it should be left up to the individual, and it depends on the weapon and overall context of where and when, but my biggest fear is to have my weapon taken from me.

    The deterrence factor only deters the marginally inclined criminal element, which could be deterred by other means (situational awareness, basic personal security measures). The determined criminal element will view it as an opportunity, will have as a priority to dispossess you from your gun and will calculate a way to get the drop on you to get it. Where I come from, you’re likely to get held up for your gun when you get to the parking lot and end up on with blood trickling from your head front page next day. That’s not and episode of 24; that’s reality where they have one of the highest per-capita crime rates in the US. I got tired of seeing that and moved.

    I like the principled chivalry of the past, but I’ll stick to opening people’s doors for them. OC is fine for marching to the capitol steps, not necessarily when stepping out to the gas station. At that point I need every advantage I can retain because I’m not out looking for a fight, and “they” are.

    I understand freedom and the second amendment and all, but, I don’t feel the need to show my weapon, and in fact I think it to be a tactical disadvantage. To quote Doug Marcaida “A weapon should be felt, not seen.”

    Although I’m highly suspicious of the supposed “calibration errors” that are happening all too often and only seem to favor democrats, this particular one in Texas seems to be a software error. I write software and this one might just be a legit malfunction. That looks like a rendering error up at the top.

    It looks like someone is continually sending “Undo” commands, and it’s apparently not her. Superficially, I would say someone’s got positive control of her computer, or at the very least a virus is doing its thing. It would take serious computer forensics to investigate the source of those commands within a few days of the event, to make sure that any logs have not been flushed out by the system. It can only keep logs for so long before deleting them. Her router’s logs could also be a good source of forensic data because it could detect things like snooping or redirecting certain ports, IP ping inquiries, etc.

    I thought the same, and it seems like this zone should be larger. An out of control rocket could definitely spew some debris out far enough to reach out and touch this pilot. In fact, I used to be able to see the Cape Canaveral/KSC launch pads from a Cessna 172 at a few thousand feet flying out of Titusville. I would say I am not comfortable flying during a launch, even at Titusville’s distance from the pads which is further away than this aircraft appears to be.

    Um… I too hate this muslim outreach nonsense, but in this case this was a privately developed launch vehicle from Orbital Sciences.

    I wouldn’t be laughing if I had a panicky individual running at me with a loaded gun and most likely a finger on the trigger. Did you see how many times the camera man got muzzle swept? I’ve had enough of these scares with noobs renting guns at the range it brings bad memories.

    Blight? Having poor judgement on methods and losing sight of priorities is a natural consequence of being a flawed human tasked with a calling such as pastoring. As the grandson of a pastor, I understand what it is to know the man behind the pulpit and seeing him stumble with the load at times. It is a heavy charge and we as his family had to bear the burden at times too.

    I never heard him pervert the Gospel like Bell, Osteen, Dollar, etc. He has been deferential to Jesus throughout the years. There are years’ worth of sermons on the website and you will not find another idol in place of Jesus in any one of them. Unorthodox? Yes. Controversial? For some, yes. Doctrine, style and methods will always be debated. Lapses in judgement are bigger and louder when you’re center stage.

    He will indeed stand before God and give an accounting, but so will the stone throwers and busybodies, whose deeds will pale in comparison to his, even counting his foul-ups. Those who have no ministry to mind will be busy attacking him, while digging their own graves, and that is just as sad as the original situation.

    It’s possible and you could argue evident he got his priorities messed up and got careless. This is exactly why the bible shows us the unvarnished truth of its characters. God works through flawed vessels regardless of failures. There are no heroes to be found but God Himself.

    Yes you missed something. He hired a firm to help publicize the book (not uncommon), but he was careless and did not check into which methods they implemented to help the book get out there. Turns out, this firm used shady tactics to increase the book’s ratings.

    Maybe this incident was an early indication as to the kinds of threats they would be getting. If they’ve had to move three times, then that’s taking measures. He says he was not happy with the idea, but trying to preserve some kind of normalcy for your children through a tough time I can understand.

    Lastly I have a hard time believing that the people he offended in his church are now dedicating their lives to taking revenge with violence. These are crimes of opportunity from people who are joining the “hate Mark Driscoll” bandwagon that has come as a result of the media circus that has formed around this issue by other opportunists in the media.

    Normal, sane, socially functional people would settle differences and resolve these issues with communication and understanding that is directed towards reconciliation and healing. People who have been directly affected by this situation would preferably be getting counseling and addressing the issue through the appropriate accountability channels and then moving on, possibly to another church, etc. Not airing their dirty laundry out to whoever wants a juicy headline, and definitely not throwing rocks, spreading rusty nails, or phoning in threats. Scumbags do that.
