I was wishing for an M16.

You wouldn't regret buying a Mosin. They're fun to shoot, and the 91/30s can be very accurate. But if you've been to many gun shows lately, you will have noticed that they are no longer the inexpensive project guns that they were ten years ago.

I started collecting when they were dirt cheap, and the other collector communities sneered at them as nothing but "junky Russian crap that'll never be valuable." Haven't heard much of that kind of thing lately.

And I'm old enough to remember hearing the same shit-talk about Enfields and SKSs, but that's another story.

If you decide to rely on an antique milsurp rifle for SHTF, you'd better make sure you have a lot of ammo for it. Because the gun shops aren't going to be open for CWII, and the only calibers that'll be around are .308 and .223.

If you want to learn more about the Mosin-Nagant, I can recommend this site:

It's an age-old female trick: Be sexy as you can be -- then deliver withering scorn to any man who looks at you. It's a power ploy.

The only difference today is that, thanks to feminism, it's become politicized. "Aggressive eye contact," my male ass.

If I interpret it correctly, it means that womynpersons can't be forced into the military. But if they want to join, they must be allowed.

At best, it's a half-step in the right direction.

What are those bottles on the cowering NPC's floor?

Looks like Kaopectate to me.

Not a hippie -- or even ex-hippie -- but I first saw DJT on C-span coverage of his 2016 campaign rallies.

I knew right then that he'd be the candidate for whom I'd vote.

I think Bolton has defected to Red China by now.

Is it racist or sexist to question her eligibility?

Yes. CNN said so.

Trump has sold a shitload of American military hardware to our allies. So if you're a manufacturer of planes, tanks, ships, guns, stuff like that...

Wish he'd sell a few of those surplus military rifles to American citizens.

Not sure if you're kidding or not, but it's true.

I get that you're being ironic. But it may be of interest that for most of the prewar 20th century, the source of most glass Christmas ornaments was a small town in Eastern Germany called Lauscha.

It's not a quaint little town full of Old World craftsmen turning out ornaments in their basements any more, but Lauscha still sells Christmas decorations:

Nowadays, of course, the cheap Chinese slave-labor knockoffs dominate the market. But you can still find the old German glass ornaments at antique shops, if you know what to look for.

I bet if that had played out today and not ten years ago, it would have gone a bit different,

Very different. You'd be declared a "bigot" and a "transphobe" and fired.

we at the DNC have always loved the USA being world police

Even though they piously claim to be "anti war."

Agreed. I'm always amazed at the number of posters here who keep on telling us about the latest reddit atrocities. Who give a damn about reddit?
