Outside the box thinking personified

(Via Says Uncle)

The most cogent reason for carrying a pistol chambered in .45 ACP I've seen recently.

AR-15 Wear and Failure Points

(Via Says Uncle)

15 wear and failure points on the AR series of firearms, but a list of good spares to keep.

I note they diplomatically mention the shooter as a failure point.

Upstairs, Downstairs

Eric S. Raymond posits that we are genetically selecting for intelligence at the top of the income scale and muses on the possible consequences. e sure to read the comments as well.

He points out that this would make an interesting SF book. Personally, I think it could be a series.

Hurricane Florence AAR

Hurricane Florence has came and went. Here at Ft. Freehold, Florence wasn't as serious a problem as it was for the residents of coastal NC. We received a measured 6.9" of rain and had wind gusts that topped 30 MPH. No trees down and no power outage, although it did the "on-off-on-off-on" dance a few times.

In the local area, there are a few trees, mostly dead or diseased, that have come down, along with minor flooding and a number of power outages. I imagine there is also some roof damage here and there.

I'm grateful for my blessings, and pray for the safety and well-being of those who have been grievously affected by the storm.
