I’ve established some weight equipment in my garage and completed 75% of the organization I need to do. Still need a squat rack and a set of Olympic weights. Looking for used to save money. Diet has started already and doing well.

Working on my goals list for 2018. Mentioned last week, if willing, that you can feel free to share yours here on the site. I’ll be posting mine either tomorrow or Wednesday.

AR BUILDER: Looking for a lower parts kit to complete a build? Mid State Armory has them for $39.99 – great price. I used this same LPK on my last AR. Worked great.

I – like many other people – take issue with the level of privacy invasion that has occurred all in the name of protecting us from terrorism. Seeing a 6-year-old girl felt up by a TSA agent is a poor excuse for effort in keeping us safe. While not politically correct-  how about searching EVERY SINGLE Muslim that flies? I suspect that would have a greater impact.

Take a look at the magazine cover above. An apparent intruder has entered a home and the magazine is “suggesting” a full-sized .308 rifle with a magnified optic as the weapon of choice. I’m thinking not.
