    Oh, also Skunk, you said:

    “Either way, as you said Kyle lived by the sword and he died by the sword. So let his widow and children also suffer the same fate he inflicted on truly innocent men’s wives and children.”

    So you’re totally OK with murdering Jessie Ventura?

    @Rose & Skunk:

    You’re disgusting. Whether you agree with the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan or not, Kyle was the reason a lot of our guys came back breathing.

    Maybe one day you’ll realize that whether you “like” the war or not, it’s us or them out there. Your posts suggest that you prefer American causalities to occur as long as the enemy doesn’t get hurt. Again: DISGUSTING.

    I’d suggest you try joining up, but you’d probably have a heart attack just walking by a MEPS station.

    Gunny: Ventura was never a SEAL. He was a Underwater Demolitions Specialist before that group was rolled into the SEAL’s. Technically speaking, SEAL’s don’t need to disown him as he never was one of them.

    Long story short, there’s 0 reason for the cops to be coming to my house unless I call them. In such a case the dogs will be corralled before they get here.

    Therefore, the only reason for a cop to shoot one of my dogs is because they’re in a place they don’t need to be.

    That being said, shoot my dogs and it sure would be a shame if your house burned down with you and your family in it… but that terrible accident might just teach the other idiots a lesson.

    @ABM4:

    I didn’t learn this from a bio class, but the effect is the same when drawing a pistol or using a rifle in close quarters.

    Basically, I noticed with a rifle or other long gun that there was no way you could follow the *correct* instructions 100% due to peripheral vision and the way walls/corners sometimes contain your motion.

    Without wasting a ton of posts explaining what you already know; I came to the conclusion that your view on the situation is correct (albeit without the biology reasoning). I didn’t know why it worked, just that it did.

    The trouble I’ve had is in trying to teach this to other people. I couldn’t fully explain what I was doing or why, merely that it worked. This frustrated a lot of cops who wanted saw me at a range and wanted advice.

    In future I’ll send ‘em your way!

    @Raydoc:

    I don’t have one but my buddy has the one that pops cans off the top of it when you hit them with the laser. He LOVES it. Every night when he gets home he has a couple brewskies and practices with it.

    He spent a fair amount of money on the thing but hey, if you want that sort of practice inside your house you’re gonna pay for it.

  • [1] July 29, 2014 at 5:35pm

    Never mind, if you read the bottom of the Police Blog it says he was arrested on the 26th. So they’re figuring he stole this stuff then got himself arrested the same day.

    And then his house got blown away. What a week!

  • [2] July 29, 2014 at 5:32pm

    See that’s what confuses me.

    My first thought was that he must have been a weekender or something, but this occurred on Sunday the 27th, the stolen property was stolen on the 26th (Saturday) so… I’m still confused.

    Either a judge ordered this guy to report to jail on Sunday morning, which I very highly doubt, or he was in jail at the time of the alleged theft.

    Maybe it’s terrible editorship on the part of the Police Blog or The Blaze, but I’m wondering how they can suspect that he stole this stuff when he was apparently incarcerated at the time of the theft…?

  • [1] July 29, 2014 at 3:32pm

    I’d have to disagree with you TEXAS.

    People who practice enough can do this. It’s just a question of having the patience and the money to go through the ammo (which was much easier, at least the money part before the recent problems with ammo and the economy).

    These days I don’t find it challenging to cut a cigarette in half at 25 yards with my Jericho 941 in .40S&W. Granted, I’m not drawing and doing it in .84 seconds, more like 2-3 seconds.

    Learning to draw and fire accurately and *rapidly* is a question of repetition. ABM4CG has some good advice on it posted just above your original comment.

  • July 29, 2014 at 3:21pm

    I agree with ABM 100%.

    The only suggestion I would have is to start out aiming at a small part of a larger target when you start using a gun.

    That way if you’re off a bit to the left/right/up/down/whatever you can see exactly where you tend to shoot and make the correction faster than guessing where you’re missing a small target.

    I certainly won’t defend some of the things that have been said by members of the GOP.

    However, to take those statements, apply them to other people who didn’t make them and then use it to raise money smacks of desperation.

    The idea that Republicans are even going to file articles of impeachment against Obama is a fantasy.

    Politicians pay attention to polls, which at this point suggest that ~60% of the public disapproves of Obama’s overstepping of his authority but similar numbers (~60%) are against impeachment.

    The only way the Republicans file is if those polls change to ~60% disapprove of the President’s overstepping of his authority AND ~60% want him impeached for it.

    So if I understand correctly, they want an exemption from being provided an informational packet because they don’t believe that the packet contains the best scientific information available?

    Seems like a stunt because it would be a lot easier to simply accept the packet, drop it in the trash and say “I’m more scientifically informed than this packet, I’ll have my abortion now, please and thank you.”

  • [32] July 29, 2014 at 12:11am

    I’m not sure which is more amusing. The state using inmates to clean this up or the state thinking anyone with an IQ over 90 would believe “high quality” was grown outdoors these days.

    Apparently the paper his slipped some in the 17 years I haven’t lived in NZ.

    When it comes to nonautomotive locks, best $35 you’ll ever spend. I also recommend the lock picking book by “Eddie the Wire”. If you read that book carefully, practice a bit and have a decent set of picks not much can stop you.

    For automotive locks buy a set of jiggler keys, that’s what the dealerships use when they lose keys.

    This is the second generation of detonation resistant grenades from IMI.

    Apparently they live up to the hype.

    As I posted above, the docs that treat this disease say the incubation period can be anywhere from two days to three weeks. After symptoms show up, the person is rapidly incapacitated.

    I suspect that the reasons the outbreaks of this disease don’t usually spread very far is because as you point out the disease isn’t airborne but mostly due to the fact that it mainly occurs in small African villages where the villagers don’t have a reason to travel outside the immediate area of the village.

    Finally, Ebola is strange in the fact that it’s not communicable until you’re showing symptoms, which means even if it does take 3 weeks to show itself you didn’t walk around like Typhoid Mary infecting dozens or hundreds of others.

    Still, I suspect that if Ebola were to get loose in a major Western city it would spread much faster than most people would expect. One guy with a cough gets on the subway in NYC…

    Even if it doesn’t spread as fast as I personally might expect, the panic it would cause would shut down the country.

  • July 28, 2014 at 8:27am

    Actually, according to the WHO and CDC, the incubation period for the strains of Ebola that can infect humans is anywhere from two to 21 days and those who recover can still pass the virus along to others via fluids for up to seven weeks.

    I’m not a fan of the death penalty unless it’s for crimes where imprisonment doesn’t mean they can’t keep ordering murders (like gang leaders) or treason.

    That said, this argument over method is stupid. There’s tons of painless ways to kill people. Just give the guy/gay a MASSIVE overdose of heroin, give them a bunch of Ketamine and shoot them in the head/spine, etc. etc. shoot them up on dilaudid and run them over with a steam roller for all I care.

    Arguments over the morality of the death penalty will continue forever. Arguments on it’s effect on crime will continue forever.

    Personally I doubt it’s effectiveness since it was used for 4000+ years and didn’t stop murder from occurring, but if society feels it’s appropriate I won’t argue.

    Well maybe the people will eventually realize the genius of what you’ve said, put their rifles on slings, pick up their torches and pitchforks and head to Washington D.C.!
