    Richard Jewell

    All Eastwood did was tell the truth. The media, led by the skank that was depicted by Olivia Wilde, destroyed that man's life with their scurrilous lies. Meanwhile, while Richard Jewell was being destroyed, scumbag Eric Rudolph was getting away.

    Mk18 10.3” 5.56 AR as a SHTF truck gun?

    Okay, I need to preface this with the fact that I got out of the Army a looong time ago, and I'm old enough to remember when an operator was the nice lady on the phone that would help you complete your call. BUT, if you see a roadblock up ahead, wouldn't it be smarter to just turn around and go...
