    My issue I think is the mainline of the Dem party are dipshits like Beto who would think the AR15 shoots a more powerful round than the M1 simply cause it looks scarier.

    Never mind the 30-06 has killed literally EVERYTHING that has walked or crawled on this gay Earth.

    Posted in new thread so I don't lose track @Falsedawn

    I don’t think it’s that much better but I usually get conflicted when there’s multiple tweets and usually keep it so long as there enough information about whatever is going on. They aren’t great OPs though imo. Anytime I see a YT video and just a sentence or so, I’ve dumped it. It’s one of the main hurdles we put in the guidelines to avoid a dump.

    Man, taking a couple weeks off from disc golf was getting kinda rough. It was kinda wet and shitty outside but worth it. I lost one about 50 feet up a tree, where only squirrels dare imo.

    My Grandpa had his M1 from his time in Korea. Used to get a lot of range time when I was kid. I'd say on top of their power, they're reliable as fuck, 50 some odd years later.

    Just listening to folks like Feinstein and then shit like this:


    Has me ready to petition Mat Best to let me be in a skit.


    That round is still one of the MOST USED large game calibers out there. And M1s just with how they're made are rock solid. I really want one, my grandfather had an M1 tanker but it, well... walked after he passed away and repairmen showed up at the house to fix stuff. Grumble.

    He never talked about the war, until the dementia came on, and then it was blood and guts stories. Not sure of his history except he went twice.

    some quick factoids about the Korean War
    1) technically the war is still on going
    2) the longest (in terms of distance) of a US military retreat .
    3) The first War where a Jet, shot down another jet.

    My dad has only ever told me two stories about Vietnam and that was enough to scare me away from ever asking about it again.

    EDIT:
    The memoir A Rumor of War did enough to round out the horrors of Vietnam too.

    It’s nothing sexual, but I like to wait to go the bathroom until I’m about to piss and shit my pants.
