From the Desk of John Rourke – March 9th, 2017


I’ve been thinking of another AR project. Why not, right? The possibilities are truly endless with the AR platform and budget restraints d0 exist. I could build a 9mm carbine. That would be interesting though I have a Beretta CX4 Storm in 9mm that I am getting ready to start testing. How about building a lightweight AR? I like that idea. Just how light could I go for under $XXX? Hmmm…..I could do another AR-pistol with a “stabilizer” stock. Absolutely love my current one and it is my go to SHTF weapon. I always wanted to get a replica of a standard CAR-15. Maybe.

I would consider a .308 but just cannot afford that build right now.

Any ideas?

The extent in which the CIA is reported to be able to spy on civilians is concerning. While protection against terrorism is important it would be curious to know the amount of money – and the quantity of rights violated – to stop how many terrorist plots? For those of us worried about an abusive, overbearing government this is not very encouraging. The fact that Alex Jones – 11 years ago – actually reported on one of the programs involved in this latest report and named it by name(Weeping Angel) has me wondering.

Added a social media icon bar on the right side of the website. This links to the site’s accounts for Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, YouTube, and Google+. Still in the process of updating some of these. The plan is in a month or so to start posting videos again. Can’t stand watching myself on video but enjoyed the interaction when I did it years ago. A bit odd as some of the content on the social media accounts are related to my previous project.

Sit back and think about this for awhile……
