Tactical Shooting / Re: Tacticool Timmy Wants To Shoot Long Range!
« on: July 31, 2019, 11:53:19 PM »

A real sniper has spent years perfecting his skills of shooting ...
  and millions in training, equipment and infrastructure. (fixed it for ya')

Anyone with a bb gun can 'want' to be a sniper.  But if you look at the qualities and abilities required for success, it's a very, very, very small group.

When I was in the army, we shot a bunch, and it would turn into a base competition.

In our company of 250 men,  only two, 2, .of us could hit 40 out of 40 on the 400 meter pop up range with an m16 A2. 
This went to a battalion shootoff, then a division shoot off.

The top 2 winners of the division (12,000 men ) shoot off, were recomended for scout sniper school and could apply.

And even then, that didnt mean they would be accepted or pass those test.

But Imo,  it wasn't entirely fair either since there is alot of difference shooting open sights and a scope.

Personally, I was deadly to 600 yards with a 3006 or 270. With an 18x scope, I could put all 5 in an 8 inch bill. But I never really perfected my skills beyond that. Although I have shot elk and deer to almost 700.

I've shot 1000 yards on a range before,, but there is a bunch of science involved. It's hard to do even if a guru hands you a rifle  built to shoot 1000.

A couple weeks ago, I had a guy ask me to sight his 22 250 in for 250 yards. I zeroed it for 50 yards. He had a 4x scope. I  just told him there was no use trying to even zero it at 250 with that scope, because you can't get a good enough sight picture with a 4x at that range the get an accurate zero.

Bottom line, you gotta be able to see what your trying to hit imo.
Maybe others can do it, but I need to see the bull to hit it consistently. Anything else imo is just guessing. I told him to go get a 3 x 9 Nikon and I'd put it back on the bench for 250 yards.

I kinda got a deer in the headlight look.

Hoover , besides being a Denerate pervert. used the FBI to gather dirt on anyone in any positions of power. He then would blackmail people if they decided to piss him off. 

Probably the biggest misuse of power right up to the obummer administration.

I wonder what really happened to dillinger, because it seems like it would be odd he never turned up again. So a conspiracy that he might not have been killed seems unlikely.

Dillinger was said he hated federal LE and wouldn't have missed an opportunity to rub their nose in catching them in a lie  just to discredit  Hoover.
The real truth will probably never be known if that body is not dillinger.

Only a complete fool would believe Hoover. That guy was a snake in a g man uniform. So who knows what kinda stunt they may have pulled to get rid of dillinger.

Happy birthday Ship.
I hope you get a good piece of  :beer1:,,,,,,,,,,,,,,err,,,,,,,umm,,,,,, CAKE.  Yeah,, that's what I meant.  :th_thicon_lol:

I seen Rhonda fight quite a bit.  While I never had any trouble holding my own,, you couldn't pay me to get in a ring with her.  :th_nuts:

That gal can kick sum serious  azz.  :sick2:

Bout one punch if he wasn't knocked cold, bieber would be crying like a little girl.


When I was a private in the Army in 1983, most of our cadre were Vietnam vets.  While they were all tougher than woodpecker lips,, we had the best training we ever could have possibly got.
These guys really knew their shit. Their tactical prowess was unmatched. Which paid big dividends  later for us.

One of the guys name was Fye. He was a brown water navy PBR vet that was the bow gunner on the .50.  While he was kinda loud and outspoken,,(likely hard of hearing) he was very likeable and took the time to teach us how to deal with booby traps. And of course, to know how to disarm them, you need to know how they're set in the 1st place.  :th_thicon_idea:
We ask him one day about maybe teaching us how to tear down, assemble, maintain an M2- .50 cal one day,, and he held a class on it for anyone that wanted to attend. While we all basically knew how to load, field clean, and shoot a .50,  the armored usually always reasembled them,, so our knowledge was limited. SFC Fye fixed that, and with enthusiasm.

3 of our other cadre were 173 rd herd from the 101st.  And (while I didnt know it at the time ) they certainly held nothing back when teaching us the good, the bad, and the ugly of war, and how to survive.. one of their specialty was assaults and defense. So we got schooled but good.

To this day Ive  always had a warm spot in my heart for All the Vietnam vets. Those guys were/are awesome.
Their training was priceless.

I was about 4 years old,, so I don't remember.

One of the things I do remember from back then was my Grandmother walking in the room and saying they shot Bobby Kennedy. She was very upset,, but I have a clear memory of that.

I also remember my Uncle coming home from Vietnam in  the fall of 1969 and walking in the driveway at my. Grandparents house in his dress uniform. Me and my older brother ran to meet him. I would have been almost 4, my brother 6. We crashed into him with big hugs. It's funny how I seemed to know he was my Uncle,, but he left in 67 and I don't remember that. But everyone was excited, so I suppose a kid would be too. He picked us up, one in each arm and walked on to the house. He gave us each a little silk robe he bought somewhere over there. Gram saved them so I still have it.

Yup. I hear the bigfoot and alien groups have teamed up to storm area 51.   :th_thicon_lol:

Bigfoot,,, hide and seek world champion.  :th_thicon_funny:

The GOP made me realize back during the John Boehner days they would do anything to get re elected,, but nothing they promised.

Remember all the bawling over obummer, and how they didn't control the Senate or the house so they were powerless.

They voters, we the people, went to the polls and gave them both.

And WHAT did they do ?  NOTHING.

I also left the Republican party one time and registered I,,, until I realized I couldn't vote in local elections,, which,, imo,, are even more important than your electoral vote for potus.

In Pa,, the rural locals have kept Hillary, bummer, and Bloomberg from Turning our state into another New Jersey, New York, or worse.
While they may be able to buy the govs seat through voter fraud in filthadelpia,, they R controlled house and legislature have shut them down at every turn.

So while I am back to being registered R,, I have absolutely no faith in any of them.

Sad to say, I vote damage control.
The fact of the matter is IMO,  that the party's fighting and just voting no to be a jackazz, is sometime the best thing.
How many things have they done, that they DIDNT PISS UP ? Sometimes nothing getting done is the best thing. Look how obummer care turned out? While I think Trump has done a lot of good, and could do a lot more,, maybe he needs to fight for it,, which shows the sensible people the lunacy of the dems.

The dems lunacy is exactly WHY Trump got elected, and why he won PA. Life long dems were ranting at the polls about hilliary. I heard it alot.

I think voting damage control is s about the best we can do with the way they have everything rigged.

The internet was a NASA invention.

No,,, :facepalm: Al Gore was fullaschitt.  :th_nuts:

While I've always been a 22mag fan and use it alot,, this brain/fart/storm don't interest me in the least.

22 mag has always been underestimated Imo.

It has more penetration in gel than a .38.

Is extremely fast, flat, and accurate to 250 yards.

It was used on our family farm back since about design time in 1950.

They always used it for cows and pigs to butcher.
 Since we were allowed to shoot deer for crop damage, and grew up eating venison. I have my grandpa's western auto 22 mag, that has likely killed more animals for food than all our high powered rifles put together.

Head shots are one and done, regardless of the  critters size.
 I bought the wife a LCR 22 mag for her 1st carry gun. It was perfect. Point and pull, no muss or fuss. East to use, load, clean. No brainer for a newbie.

Even after she graduated to a CZ Rami 9mm, she refused to give up the Lcr. Which was fine by me.

I've said before, years ago I seen a big guy charging another to attack get shot in the chest with a 22 mag derringer. It dropped him like a bad habit. He was done, right now. It actually stopped his forward momentum. And he layed there and bawled like a baby until EMS showed up. I seen him over a month later, and he was still gimping around.  I think it taught the azzhole some manners,, cause he sure deserved it.

They want their cake and eat it too.

The saddest part is,, THEY EXPECT, AND DEMAND IT.

I want everything handed to me for free,, but dont you (the taxpayer), tell ME what to do.

I shouldnt have to take a drug test,, like the dumb SOB that works for a living.

How dare you ask.

I have my rights ya know. 🤣

Why else would they put cameras and speakers in everyones electronics?

Nothing new here.

Remember back when they were offering to microchip people? Back BEFORE cell phones were a big thing.

Everyone lost their minds.

So whats better than a micro chip ?

A cell phone, that everyone wants,, that can record all conversations, all locations, and can even record the sounds and pictures around the owner and the device. .And YOU even pay for it. 
Just like your vehicles onstar.

Did you know alot of tv's,, just like your laptop screen , cable tv box, and cell fone,, has a reverse  camera in it ? Looking at YOU.

Theyve been doing this eves dropping crap for years.

And thats no conspiracy.

#4.  Wrong.  Bush put the dead or alive bounty on binladen, and the cia worked  on finding him for years.  They finally found and killed him under the obummer administration.

As with most of his so called accomplishments,, he took credit for something that was already started and done by others,  before his election. He only ok'ed the mission.
Dont forget, bill clinton refused to allow them to kill binladen several times back in the 1990's.

Well,  he dragged over 1 million muslims into the USA, claiming they were Syrian refugees, when they were actually black muslims from north Africa.

And got away with it.

He sold arms to the muslim brotherhood in Bengazi,, got his arms dealer ambassasor and several others killed,,,, and got away with it.

Getting elected POTUS after going to college as a foreign exchange student from africa was his biggest trick.

The list of dirty underhanded crap he did hurting our country, and got away without being shot for treason,, is his biggest accomplishment Imo.

Pretty pathetic.

No matter what he does they are gonna bitch.

And the fake news will pile on,, as always.

I could care less about that racist player, or nike.
Both can pound sand. Which , by their own hand, is about all they got left to do. 😂
