    AR-15 cost in 1969?

    Thanks for that. That was exactly what I was looking for. I know that a statement of charges for the Army on an M-16A2 was $449 in 1995. That was the only price comparison I had to go on. PSA regularly has full rifle parts kits for under $300, so it really is amazing to me how comparatively...

    AR-15 cost in 1969?

    Just like the title says, does anyone know what the retail price of an AR-15 was in 1969? It occurs to me, that they are likely cheaper now than they were even then, without having to account for inflation.

    What are you drinking right now!?

    Basil Haydens is mellow with good flavor, but a bit boring. I haven't had the other two. I'm slumming with some Maker's Mark tonight.

    Wind call break down

    All wind matters, the effect of drift has little to do with actual speed. It is the difference in velocity between the projectiles speed in a vacuum vs. it's speed in the atmosphere (lag time), multiplied by time. The difference between the front half and the back half is a function of the...

    Nope, three simultaneous shots. You can hear the count down under his breath if you turn the sound up.

    Wind call break down

    There is a better way to do wind math. There are plenty of threads on here about the BC / Mil method, so I won't go into it here.

    The word in the Hebrew and the Greek is "murder" not "kill". It is literally the same concept that we call 1st degree murder. As for the rest, I don't have time or the inclination to give you a lesson in hermeneutics or exigesis of the Holy Scriptures. You can work that out with God when you...

    Another who doesn't understand the scriptures. The verse quoted by @Rthur is in the context of God's people in relationship with one another. The passage you quoted is in the context of God using Armies to judge an entire civilization for it's wickedness. God raised up the Babylonians and the...

    First point. I will re-iterate. There is NO prohibition in Christian scripture against either defending oneself, or the death penalty imposed by the recognized legal authorities. Quite the opposite in fact. Second point. The murderers life is not "taken" when he is executed. The authorities do...

    All things abortion -

    The ending of an innocent defenseless life that literally has not even taken a breath of air yet, juxtaposed with a fully grown violent felon that is in need of a just punishment. Those are the same to you? Pro-lifers aren't the ones that are confused. Without justice, life is devalued. We...

    Self defense is not murder, and has never been murder, not for Christians, not in the Bible...never. Conflating the two illustrates a complete lack of discernment.

    Adams County Deputy shot and killed 16 Jan 19

    Every cop involved shooting is a Rorschach test. I have never seen a cop hater change thier mind because of the facts. People with an axe to grind and thier own tightly held pre-conceived notions very rarely give them up. If you are a cop, former cop, or cop supporter, then you probably...

    So which one of you went to Home Depot?

    There is someone at my work that HAS to be doing the "hover" shit. I mean, how in the FUCK do you get shit on the WALL behind the toilet??!! ....AND another thing.... in public toilets, check the inside of the paper roll before you use it. Some motherfucker had a "breakthrough" one day and...

    Weighing / Sorting New Lapua Brass

    The only brass I've weight sorted is LC 308, and I don't honestly recall the amount of reduction in group size. I did the test years ago. It was enough however, that I decided to continue the practice. My all around reloading skills have improved somewhat in the last 10 years or so, maybe it's...

    Weighing / Sorting New Lapua Brass

    Thanks for fleshing that out a bit. I wasn't trying to be a dick. You were making somewhat contradictory points. You were saying that with modern quality components you shouldn't see any benefit from weight sorting.....but, then admitted that shooting LC might require sorting. I tend to agree...

    Weighing / Sorting New Lapua Brass

    Surely there was a difference, or else why spend the money for "quality" brass? If consistent weight isn't one of the things that determines brass "quality", then what would you say does?
