Re: Ruth Bader Ginsberg - dies 9.18.2020

I have a problem with the hypocrisy that would be shown if they do make a nomination now. The Republicans held up a nomination for quite a long time because an election was close and they wanted to let the new president have a say (well, that was their stated reason). If they do a nomination this c...

Re: Ginsburg has died

RIP. I may not have liked her politics, but I do have to pay respects where respect is due. Condolences to everyone affected by her passing. As for business, November turned really important on the federal side of things. Considering the stunt that was pulled back in 2016 with the whole senate not v...

Re: Who's running a dot on their pistol?

I have a Vortex on my FNX-45, and I like it. It is very different than using irons, but I can see where it will benefit over using irons. I was just shooting that along with the Beretta M9 with irons. Here are my thoughts. The RDS will definitely get you better groups. The dot does a pretty good job...

I’m convinced that if you are carrying a firearm you should have a tourniquet on your person. TQ is as much a part of my everyday carry as pistol and magazines.
:iagree:

I always have a TQ on my person as well as in the car kit. It may look a bit goofy, but better safe than sorry.

Re: Corona Virus (COVID-19)( SARS-CoV-2) from China: Its going to be bad.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XggbLjUkXLk&feature=youtu.be FYI for those on a mobile device or anything with a single speaker setup, one of the channels is 180 degrees out of phase with the other channel. This causes an interesting effect of depth on stereo speakers and garbled to no audio on dev...

Re: GL.iNet GL-MT300N V2 smart router

Couple questions. Are you using the right port? And is this a user-locked profile or the server profile? I haven't used that router before, but the type of profile you import may make a difference to it. Oh, and last super silly question, but I gotta ask. Did you get the hostname right? It actually ...

Re: Protests - the next level?

https://time.com/5886348/report-peaceful-protests/ Time says 93% of protests are peaceful. That means 7% are not. Over 99% of police interactions conclude peacefully. Less than 1% do not. It seems like Time literally just confirmed that hanging out with the police is at least 7x safer than hanging o...

Re: what to build next

I really like my 300 BLK for the suppressed stuffs. Makes it really nice and quiet with some umph behind the bullet. :iagree: It's a great round if you reload. I use Sierra MKs for my mine. Otherwise, ammo isn't exactly scarce for it. Regardless, it's a great, practical option. If you want to have ...

Read a vaccine will be available in November https://www.washingtonpost.com/nation/2020/09/03/coronavirus-covid-live-updates-us/ It will definitely not surprise me if the vaccine comes out a week before elections. At this point, the vaccine is being produced in full capacity despite it not being ap...

Warning to voters regarding mail-in ballots

I was talking to a gentleman earlier, and he mentioned that he got a ballot in the mail from the Trump campaign. He was under the impression that it was a real ballot, and that all he needed to do is check the Trump box and mail it back. The ballot does NOT contain anything other than the presidenti...

Re: Corona Virus (COVID-19)( SARS-CoV-2) from China: Its going to be bad.

Yeah, that 94% is an extremely misleading number. It's irresponsible to throw that out there. True, as RoyGBiv put it, there are some people who would've died anyway with or without the virus, but to say over 50% would've died from pneumonia anyway is preposterous. Most of what is listed as addition...

Re: November 4th... What are your preparations

I honestly think I'm good where I stand. I got plenty of everything I need here, including tons of popcorn. Four years ago, I took the day after election off to celebrate with a friend. This year, I'm planning on staying home the day after the results are finalized. It doesn't matter who wins or los...

Re: Anybody bought body armor? Thinking about it....

I've always thought about getting some soft armor. But one thing that always lingers in my mind is that if I ever need to put on soft armor, that means I probably made a bad decision to be somewhere I shouldn't be to begin with.
