There were production lots of Eastern Bloc ammo that became unstable, and would cause huge overpressure. I had to replace some 7.62x25 Tokarev because of this, before I blew up a CZ. It sounds like you got some of that defective ammo in Makarov.

Your reality is very skewed, fren. The world is not Iowa, which happens to be FLAT. It's not as if there's no Phase 3 or volte here, in a couple of large, flat metro areas. Once you get into the mountains things quickly change. Topography matters.

Right. The two things are not mutually exclusive. 👍

“It’s bail reform,” Shea said on PIX11 this week. “It’s Covid. It’s emptying out prisons. One of the most frustrating pieces right now, is a criminal justice system that just is not working and I’m calling on Albany to fix it. Fix it now. People are dying on the streets of New York City.”

Funny how all that shit waited until June 15 to start having an effect, isn't it? They disbanded the plainclothes unit on June 15 BTW.

It is way out there. So is the story about the Bidens owning the island next door to Epstein's, coincidentally also with a submarine base. Perhaps this is a 4chan op.

Seriously, they haven't even finished deploying P25 out here in gov't service yet. There are plenty of places where volte won't work, because there's no service. I think First Net is still building out...Oh yeah, they are - it's AT&T.

Believe it or not, there are still lots of places where public service and gov't still run ancient 1940s VHF tech, and not just in aircraft.

Ya, had to watch on mute the first 5 min.

Yeah. The commentary there is hilarious at times. PPD has been stepping it up the last few nights.

This is excellent, and should be seen by all. It's too bad the hand-wringers are getting all the upvotes.

Use a smaller brush, pede. Some of us have already been down this road. In another time, the easy answer would have been Scouting.

Look into youth programs like CAP (USAF Auxiliary) or USN Sea Cadets. Unlike the US Army or Coast Guard programs, these are not affiliated with Boy Scouts/Explorers. Both you and your kids will make friends for life in any of these, in addition to gaining valuable knowledge and experience.

Read the founding documents and the Federalist Papers together, especially on Memorial Day, Independence Day, and Veterans' Day. Explain them to your kids.
