From the Desk of John Rourke – December 18th, 2017


This past weekend has been super busy and as such posting this week will be limited.

There have been a lot of stories going around about “UN troops” going to Chicago. Ladies and gentleman – this is a publicity stunt and the vast majority of the stories are set up as clickbait. Clickbait? Yes. Clickbait – if unfamiliar with the term – is generally an article with an unbelievable and attention-grabbing title. Often there is some tiny piece of truth behind it. This “Chicago Asking for UN To Help With Gun Violence” is a good example.

The mass power outage in Atlanta is a good example of the chaos from just one area losing power. The domino effect on transportation will be felt everywhere. Remember – it’s not just affecting passengers trying to travel but commercial planes moving product such as the US Mail, UPS, and Fed Ex.

Picked up an Anderson stripped AR lower on sale for $45.99. Great price. Now deciding what to build with it. Considering something different. Not really sure.

I’m not interested in 300 Blackout. Considering a 6.5 Grendel as a long range shooter. Likely I’ll stick with 5.56.
