Remain Calm And Check Your Zero

Related image

There are several different ways to ‘battle’ zero your rifle.  Here is some info that may be useful.  When we zeroed our M16’s back in the early 70’s with the issued 55gr projectile, the formula we used was:

25 yards – 1 inch low.  This yielded 5.6 inches high at 100 yards and dead on at 250 yards.  This was the Army method.  I don’t know what the other services were using, but I understand that current Marine Corp zero allows for shots out to 600 meters with the ACOG.  I expect that with a Mil-dot optic that would work for any projectile-launching platform.  Again, back in the day we zeroed for a 55gr bullet, so the new green tips would require some tweaking.  Anyway, here is some info I recently ran across on the web.

Comparision / Contrast: Old v New AR Platforms – Pt 2

Great info

The Defensive Training Group

Posted at AP on 11 Oct 18.

Before we get into this installment, I freely acknowledge that there are as many people out there who simply loathe the M16/AR15/M4/M4gery platform and would rather throw rocks at an enemy than use one, as recently evidenced by comments not making the cut here (I don’t do vitriol) or seen at other sites posting the first installment of the series.

There are also those who really, ‘don’t know what they don’t know’ about continuous product improvement, and honestly don’t care to compare/contrast older versions with newer versions of anything, and operate on what is known as, “The Law of Primacy,” which basically means, “first learned, longest remembered, revered, trusted, etc (put in your own descriptor..)  I actually was in this category for 20 years after retiring from active duty, so much so that I moved to the 7.62NATO round in a M14 type…

What Specific Goals has the Communist Party NOT Achieved in the USA?

The Defensive Training Group

Posted at AP on 15 May 18.

Here’s a list compiled in 1958 by W. Cleon Skousen, in his book, “The Naked Communist”  and revisited in the book, “The Naked Truth: The Naked Communist – Revisited,” by James C. Bowers, of 45 communist goals that must be accomplished before the US government could be overthrown from a free state and transfigured into a communist state.

Examine it.  And once done, please describe any of these that have not yet been accomplished.  Then judge as where we are as a people and nation. I’ll be interested to read any comments on this post.

  1.  U.S. acceptance of co-existence as the only alternative to atomic war.
  2. U.S. willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war.
  3. Develop the illusion that total disarmament by the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength.
  4. Permit free trade between all…

The Riotgun And The Bayonet

Shotguns are wonderful tools.

Mason Dixon Tactical

I was asked the other day if I thought a semi auto rifle like the AR or AK was a good “Anti riot” gun. My response was that although either of those rifles would do fine, I was a bigger fan of the 12 gauge shotgun, specifically one designed with an extended magazine, rifle sights, and is designed to mount a bayonet.

The individual started laughing and said “I don’t see myself doing a bayonet charge, Sarge.” To which I replied, “Do you know of any other firearm that is designed for close in defense, can fire non lethal ammo like rubber balls, pepper dust, or pepper balls in the same repeatable way you can with lethal ammo, can accurately hit and drop a man sized target at 100 meters, and can immediately and effectively disable a vehicle engine with accurate hits?” His answer was “No.”.

Is the shotgun the…

Another Illegal Alien Serial Killer

The Tactical Hermit

Alleged serial killer, a Kenyan man in the US illegally, is charged in multiple Dallas-area deaths

In the military we used to say “All Safety Regulations are written in Blood” in other words, it took somebody getting killed for the Brass to realize “Hey, maybe we should change our safety policies!”

The same goes for Immigration reform in this country. How many innocent people have to die before we realize that the Immigration system in this country is broken and we need more than just a Wall?

Stay Alert, Armed and Dangerous!
