I like how they are pretty much "bullet proof." A 1 pound block of aluminum with a lens. They've been military tested in Israel too.

My SCAR has built in back up sights, but I'm not putting any on the Rock River Carbine I just got. For one, I want the optic all the way to the rear. Plus, I just never use iron sights at the range.

And, with this optic, I don't really see the need for it. If the optic goes belly up for some weird reason, then I likely won't have a functioning rifle at that point anyway.

Just got another of these in yesterday - This is the 3rd one I have of these now. I've also previously owned 3 others (sold the when I sold the rifles they were mounted on).

Gt my newest Mepro 21 in today. Mounted it on the CX4 again. Will probably go zero it Sunday.

Topping Turmoil: Big Pizza fights ObamaCare menu mandate


Quote
The pizza lobby is mounting a double-extra-large battle against looming government regulations that would force their franchises to post a dizzying array of calorie counts on their menus.

Under ObamaCare, a Food and Drug Administration rule would require restaurants and food retail shops with over 20 locations, like pizza delivery chains, to post in-store menus displaying nutritional information.

Pizza chains argue this would be particularly tough for them, and take extraordinarily large menu boards. Domino’s Pizza claims it offers 34 million different pie combinations; Pizza Hut boasted last year it can make 2 billion different pizzas. While the FDA has suggested restaurants can institute calorie “ranges” for each pizza, one Domino’s franchise owner in Missouri guessed it would cost him $5,000 to build the boards -- though over 90 percent of Domino’s business comes in over the phone or online, and so most customers never see the in-store board.

Listen to Donald Trump’s Answer When CNN Host Asks If ‘It’s Time to Do Something Else About Guns’ After WDBJ Shooting



Quote
“Do you think it is time to do something else about guns?” Cuomo asked. “Would you do something different with gun policy?”

“I don’t think I would, because this is really a sick person,” Trump said of the WDBJ shooter. “This isn’t a gun problem, this is a mental problem.”

Eotech 300BLK XPS-2 Review


Quote
The big problem with a gun this versatile is switching from super to subsonic ammunition will move your zero. When looking at a gun that so commonly goes back and forth from one type of ammo to another it becomes bothersome to either adjust all calculations or re-zero constantly.

Eotech solved this problem when they created the dual zeroed XPS2-300 for the 300 Blackout caliber in both super and subsonic.

Yea I have ordered guns online many times, due to price.

Check wikiarms.com and do a search for that model name (type it in the search box). You will see the cheapest prices.

Remember that Bud's lets you "Make an offer" on some items. I just saved $75 on a Mepro 21 optic that way on Monday

Off the grid: North Korean sub fleet's mystery mission


Quote
Two-thirds of North Korea’s submarine fleet was reportedly on the move and off of Seoul’s sonar this week despite an announcement by the two Koreas that they were ratcheting down the saber rattling that followed a land mine explosion in the demilitarized zone earlier this month.

More than 50 North Korean subs, believed to represent about 70 percent of Pyongyang’s fleet — were still unaccounted for Wednesday in a potentially ominous development that a spokesman for South Korea's Defense Ministry called "unprecedented."

Ammunition / Re: 22 LR ammo shortage again

If I didn't only want Minimags, it would be super easy to buy 22 ammo in this area. But even now, the minimags are starting to show up again. I have enough, though

I have looked at their 1911s before. For their price range, the Rugers seem to be good 1911s. If you like the features and the feel of the gun in your hand - go for it. Have you held one? Different brands of 1911s have different can have a different feel from one another. So, make sure you've compared it to other brands and like the feeling.

Have you owned a 1911 before?

Battle continues over doctor-patient gun law


Quote
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -

Raising concerns about First Amendment rights and public health, opponents of a controversial Florida law aimed at restricting doctors from asking questions about patients' gun ownership have asked a full federal appeals court to take up the issue.

A three-judge panel of the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals last month upheld the constitutionality of the 2011 law, which has drawn heavy attention and was dubbed the "docs vs. glocks" law. The 2-1 ruling was a victory for gun-rights supporters such as the National Rifle Association and a defeat for medical groups.

Regal Theaters Checking Purses, Bags to Ensure Law-Abiding Citizens Unarmed


Quote
In reaction to firearm-related attacks at gun-free theaters in Aurora, Colorado (2012), and Lafayette, Louisiana (2015), Regal Entertainment Group has gone from simply barring law-abiding citizens from carrying guns for self-defense to checking their purses to be sure they are unarmed.

Regal theaters have said, “backpacks and bags of any kind” will be subject to searches for theater goers’ safety. At the same time, The Wrap reports the theater chain admits their policy “is not without flaws.”

Of course, those “flaws” will result in law-abiding citizens paying a price for being unarmed—a price that those denying the exercise of Second Amendment rights are largely immune from paying.
