Hey Frank! Figures youd have one lol.. We stock .30 cal ammo and i can get p mags cheaper than "cheaper than dirt". 15 or 30 rounders..I want to get one of the stock pouches for it also and an original style sling..


And Glanton,, a zipperhead was the term used for a "gook" that had just been shot up the middle with a fully auto M-16 in Nam..They kinda made a zipper track if you will.

Dal..Although I pefer a larger caliber of weapon the M1 carbine is easy to shoot and very accurate. I guess it depends on your level of marksmanship.

The ballistics for the M1 30 caliber are indeed sweeet! 1901 fps in standard FMJ 110 grain bullets, and sizzling 2400+ in the 90 grainers.

The Armed Citizen:
A man in his 20s died and at least three others were hospitalized after a shooting inside an engineering building on the campus of Seattle Pacific University on Thursday afternoon, authorities said.

A suspect was in custody. Seattle police had initially sought a second suspect, but later said the person in custody was the only shooter.

As many as five people were injured, according to the Seattle Fire Department. Harborview Medical Center said four victims had been brought to the hospital, including the young adult who died shortly after arrival.

Another school shooting. How long before these become "dog bites man" stories and they become relegated to the back pages?

Well, Ron, I'm sure that's a huge consolation for the parents of the kid that was murdered.

What's your opinion of this, really, alarming increase in school shootings?

Ive given my opinion more than once Gary. Its been my personal observation that gen X and baby boomers have raised monsters. Ive seen enough of them to base that opinion on facts. Laws against correcting children, children allowed to shyt their drawers until age 3 and 4 because " they have to learn in their OWN times"...That may SEEM totally ridiculous and anecdotal at best, but its also a prime example of inactive ineffective parenting. And thats where it all starts. Even our society has been redesigned so that kids must raise themselves to a very large degree..And that experiment has been one large failure imho, along with the internet being a great resource and a DEVIL at the same time.

I was raised with guns Gary. Knew very well their consequences from misuse because i was taught at an early age. I wasnt left to myself to figure that out. EVERYONE i knew and hung out with through childhood was the same , an NONE of us ever took a gun to school besides to hunt birds after class let out, which we did frequently back then.. At Carson high it was COMMON PLACE to see shot guns and rifles in the gun racks of pick up trucks driven there by students. Dont seek to blame guns, your on the wrong track.

I grew up with guns, also, Ron. I had a Savage .22 bolt action single shot as a kid.

I'll ask the question again, do you think the proliferation of weapons might be part of that experiment you wrote about?

No i dont Gary.. In fact the proliferation of weapons - some 20 million new gun owners in just the last couple of years has actually led to a DECREASE in violent crimes over all. And has been doing so since the nineties..Those are NOT anecdotal facts but pure statistics. The occurrence of violent crimes has gone down while gun ownership has soared. It is for the most, school aged kids and young adults now committing these school shootings- those that were raised by boomers and gen x-ers. As much as kids now are of the instant gratification generation, so are the parents. Little jimmy acts out in class, call it ADD and give him ridlen. Little jimmy is depressed, give him mind drugs. There was NO SUCH THING as ADD when we grew up- as we had that cured by a principles paddle.

I remember absolutely hating school... Couldn't stand it. But we didn't shoot the place up since we knew that would be suicidal and random murder wasn't high on the list. We had access to far more firepower then as kids. I had a friend who's dad collected machineguns. Real ones. Guns were often on the wall or in glass cabinets on display. Every vehicle in town had a firearm or two inside.

Families were broken then too. Parent's drank and beat their kids with no fear of DCYS then.

But there were no random killing rampages, at least nothing that made the news perhaps. Sure there were targeted murders but not this random insanity.

The only big difference I see is these drugs being pumped into people now for the simplest things. Therapy is hard, takes a long time, and is expensive. Pills are cheap, plentiful, and can have deadly behavioral side effects. So bad in fact, that they print the warnings on the black-box labels.

Ron,

This doesn't seem to back you up:
http://www.slate.com/articles/news_and_politics/map_of_the_week/2012/12/sandy_hook_a_chart_of_all_196_fatal_school_shootings_since_1980_map.html

Nor does this:

Nor does this:
http://www.msnbc.com/rachel-maddow-show/charts-half-the-deadliest-shootings-u

Then there's this:


Is there an issue here, do you think, or is this just normal and to be expected?

Is rather live next to the 5 Taliban released than live next to Ron. I'm sure they have less weapons.

All this NRA propaganda is sickening.
