Mommy, am I gonna die?”— 4-year-old Ava Ellis after being inadvertently shot in the leg by a police officer who was aiming for the girl’s boxer-terrier dog, Patches

“‘Am I going to get shot again.’”—2-year-old survivor of a police shooting that left his three siblings, ages 1, 4 and 5, with a bullet in the brain, a fractured skull and gun wounds to the face

Children learn what they live.

As family counselor Dorothy Law Nolte wisely observed, “If children live with criticism, they learn to condemn. If children live with hostility, they learn to fight. If children live with fear, they learn to be apprehensive.”

And if children live with terror, trauma and violence—forced to watch helplessly as their loved ones are executed by police officers who shoot first and ask questions later—will they in turn learn to terrorize, traumatize and inflict violence on the…

Facial Recognition for your Car, by Eric Peters

Posted: October 6, 2019 by gamegetterII in Uncategorized


In a project that is well underway, the powers that be will soon every place your car, and you, have gone. From Eric Peters at

If you’ve ever wondered why so many new cars have Angry Samurai Face, maybe it’s because they’re annoyed about being watched all the time.

There is something called the Digital Recognition Network – which operates kind of like the fingerprint database the FBI maintains to keep track of criminals. The difference here is it’s our cars that are being kept track of.

Also that we’re not criminals.

This is a distinction of no particular relevance in the “Homeland” (doesn’t the eructation of that word make your right arm want to voluntarily snap outward and upward like a baton?) where the possibility that you might be guilty of something is sufficient to presume you are guilty.

The burden of innocence resting squarely –…

A Book Review of Indian Country: By Kurt Schlichter

Posted: October 4, 2019 by gamegetterII in Uncategorized

A friend asked me to do this review and give my impressions of the book’s fictional scenario and whether I thought the playing out of the events was realistic. I’ve never really done a book review before, so be kind, and I say that with all the sarcasm I can muster LOL. Flame on, this is just my semi educated opinion.  

Indian Country.jpgThe Scenario

Hillary Rot-Damn Clinton wins the 2020 election and immediately starts to do what every one of us figured she would. This book begins in 2022 with the adventures of an Army Special Forces Captain named Kelly Turnbull. In 2022 he is running ops in Iraq, but then, mysteriously gets pulled from Army Command by a guy named “Clay” who works for what he calls an “Other Government Agency”.

U.S. Forces are being withdrawn from Iraq and Europe by Clinton and “Clay” wants Turnbull to help him finish…

This is a post I wrote for Springfield Armory’s Blog, “Armory Life”, back in August.


A Self-Defense Precision Rifle (SDPR) should have a number of qualities, the highest of which is pinpoint accuracy at realistic ranges (max distance you can ID a threat). As a survivalist, I consider a realistic range for a self-defense rifle to be a good deal less than what one would suppose the operational ranges of a military sniper would be.


My standard for a precision rifle is 1 Minute of Angle (MOA is approximately 1 inch at 100 yards, e.g. 200 yards = 2 inches) groups at any realistic range. Beyond precision, attributes of a SDPR would be reliability, durable design, and comfortably ergonomic. All of these features are embodied in the Springfield Armory Loaded M1A, and at a reasonable price.

The Rifles

I have owned a 7.62×51 NATO caliber Loaded M1A for…

“With DBC reticles, there’s usually no choice: 100 yards or meters main setting is required to make the other offsets correct. The way to pick the scope zero for the slower but more flexible reticles using MRAD or MOA subtensions is to figure out the point range first.

Point blank just means that a center hold would produce a hit on a target of a given size. Point blank on a torso of an enemy soldier maybe 275 yards, while on a prairie dog only 60 yards.

So the same rifle may be zeroed at 175 yards for a fight, but at 40 yards for a hunt. At the same time, this isn’t the only consideration for picking the zero distance.

If you have no expectation of encountering vary varmints up close, the zeroing distance should reflect the more realistic shooting environment.

So a 200-yard zero for the rodents just means your point-blank is 170 to 220, while shorter shots require holding under rather than over.

Similarly, if serious sniping is expected at 600 yards, it would make sense to zero that far and use a chart or a ballistic calculator to extrapolate shorter ranges. The error would be much smaller than with zeroing at a hundred and extrapolating to six.

The practical problem for most of us is the absence of ranges long enough to do that, and also the relative scarcity of actual long shots in either defense or hunting.”

Ammo is cheaper than it ever has been, so are magazines.  So are replacement parts.  So are upgrades.

Don’t get me wrong; I love my Yugo M48 and my other rifles, but if I gotta defend hearth and home, I’d really rather have an AR with about 4,000 rounds of barrier blind ammo and about 20 mags…..along with another couple thousand practice rounds and some range time.

Get thee hence and upgrade your ‘survival’ armory.

“The existential unmasking of the Deep State…

Long-time readers of this blog know I take a rather elegant but simplistic view of power. Race, class and groin tackle are not what make the world tick despite the hundreds of billions of debt-bucks utterly wasted in faculty salt mines, salons and lounges across the fetid plain.

It is power and in particular, the exercise of initiated violence which is the easiest definition of state power devised. The meat puppets in suits whether elected or the nameless low-information apparatchiks stealing oxygen in government offices planet-wide, this comprises the bedrock of all violence brokerage.

Who in their right mind with comply with most of the garbage spewed and enforced by these Marxian mandarins?

And make no mistake, the coproach is an armed Leninists willing to stop at nothing to enforce their political masters’ will.”

“The violent legacy of a secret government operation lives on.

Another weapon from Operation Fast and Furious has been found in the hands of violent armed groups in Mexico. The newest recovery happened on June 20 in Chihuahua, Mexico.

Mexican police and military arrested nine people and confiscated ten weapons after a gunfight between two groups. According to arrest documents, one of the weapons, a semi-automatic rifle, traces back to Fast and Furious.

The gun is listed as a “Romarm Cugir GP-WASR 10/63 rifle.”

“Clusterf**k”: Lessons Learned

A terrific AAR, sent by a reader:

“Clusterf**k” —

That is the one word answer I uttered to my wife’s one-word question as she eyed my weary face and body covered in smelly sweat soaked clothing, and asked me, “Well?” She was inquiring as to the outcome of my weekend session as an untrained spotter for an ex-combat veteran sniper during a competitive team event that we were using for training and evaluation. She tried to suppress her laugh.

For the past 8 years I have been training in various aspects of both long-range shooting and SUT. Some of my skills are self-taught and for others I have been receiving various forms of “professional” training, some good and some not so good. (Here I come Max and Mosby for the real deal.) I have noted over the years, that everyone seems to do things differently to achieve the same end…
