  1. Air Force graduation

    So in a bit of a ‘passing of the torch’, I just passed twenty years on active duty yesterday (NOT Air Force), and my oldest is getting ready to head to Air Force boot camp. Any zoomies here have good ideas for a basic training graduation present? Wasn’t really a thing went I went through, and I...
  2. Jeopardy

    Am I the only one under 70 (WELL under 70) that watches Jeopardy? This guy that's been running the table for almost two weeks - he seems like a bit of a hipster, so I really don't WANT to respect him, but damn is that dude good at Jeopardy!
  3. Playing chicken: World Championship

    http://www.foxnews.com/health/2017/06/02/dad-overdoses-on-heroin-to-teach-his-addict-son-lesson.html JFC, dude! Apparently it may work, though (and I'm aware of the slim odds of success). I guess if it's absolutely batshit crazy but it works, it's not batshit crazy?
  4. Pelican Bay prison riot

    http://www.foxnews.com/us/2017/05/24/pelican-bay-state-prison-riot-5-inmates-shot-8-guards-hospitalized-in-melee.html Good article to play "spot the outright lies" and "spot the setup for blaming the CO's" with.
  5. Accidental shooting

    http://www.currypilot.com/news/5273635-151/brookings-woman-dead-boyfriend-arrested-after-accidental-shooting?referrer=fpblob Curious to hear 'the rest of the story' here. One local source made a comment that "the gun just went off" - given the area where this happened, where abject...
  6. Shoulder holsters

    Anyone familiar with them? Looking for a more comfortable way to carry a .45 (double-stack 1911 type deal) while hiking or aimlessly wandering in the woods on an ATV this time of year. Not looking for anything Tommy Tactical, don't need to carry spare magazines, a straight bladed knife, 4 D-cell...
  7. Dillon 450

    I'll skip the background because it's boring and stick to the point: I have a Lee Loadmonster that I use for .38 and .45ACP. At least I did use it for .38, but it just punched a primer sideways through the primer feeder, and I've had enough. I'm sick of it's shit. I have two die holders...
  8. Trim-It II

    I know this thing has been discussed and spoken very highly of here in the last few months or so. I really needed a better trimmer than the Lee case gauge take-the-fun-out-of-it tool. I've been dragging my feet because of the big cost once the caliber dies are added in. Right now they have a...

  10. Yeah, that was a bad idea

    http://m.washingtontimes.com/news/2016/jan/15/air-force-officials-pull-mlk-fun-shoot-poster/ I'm astounded this made it past more than one person without anyone realizing what a profoundly bad idea it was. I detest the modern culture of political correctness and being offended by everything...
  11. When your time comes...

    http://www.foxnews.com/world/2015/12/22/shark-kills-man-during-coast-guard-rescue-near-aruba.html Sometimes nobody can rob the Reaper of his due. Talk about God hating you...
  12. Terror attack in Germany averted?

    http://www.foxnews.com/world/2015/11/17/german-soccer-stadium-evacuated-security-concerns-cited/ Some other articles say they discovered an ambulance full of explosives trying to get in to the stadium.
  13. Body cam video of police takedown

    http://www.kmtr.com/news/local/Video-Oregon-police-officer-stops-woman-from-jumping-off-bridge-327627281.html?tab=video&c=y No sacred minorities or violence involved, so it probably won't be seen beyond local/regional news.
  14. Latest on Hillary emails

    http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2015/08/11/fbi-has-hillary-clinton-emails-from-home-server-official-says/?intcmp=hpbt2 TS/SCI through home e-mail - anyone else would go to jail.
  15. The Finest Hours

    Shitty and overdone accents aside, I've never been this eager for a movie to hit theaters. Can't wait to see this one: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2025690/ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BQmllwTKtqU Hopefully the movie stays true to the history - because the history of this case is...
  16. Bad news in Boston (boating accident)

    http://www.myfoxboston.com/story/29200273/womans-arm-severed-in-boston-boating-accident Not sure how 'accidental' operating under the influence and backing over a person in the water is.
  17. 12 less ISIS animals.

    http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2015/05/16/us-conducts-raid-on-isis-in-syria-kills-top-official/ Cool article. Wish they'd release video (well aware that won't happen). Favorite quote from the article: "Normally, when we go in, we kill a lot of people." a U.S. official said.
  18. Old powder

    Curious about something - I figure one of the experienced reloading gurus here might have some insight. Broke a powder hopper a while back, and spilled maybe 1/8 - 1/4lb of Titegroup. It was mostly contained in a shoebox when I removed the powder dump, thrown in a small cardboard box until I...
  19. Domestic terrorism?

    http://woodtv.com/2015/02/08/attack-at-coast-guard-station-in-grand-haven/ They're calling it domestic terrorism because it was a federal facility, or something like that. Not sure that isn't a bit of a reach.
  20. .300BLK & copper plated bullets Part II

    So, I got these Xtreme 150 grain flat points running just fine with Lil Gun. Cycling fine at 14 grains, probably at 12 grains but who knows because it turns out Militec sucks donkey dong for corrosion protection and my expensive as hell Syrac adjustable gas block rusted over a few days because...
