  1. LF M1A Model Recommendations

    I have had buying an M1A on the back burner for a while, and am thinking now might be the time. I was looking at the various models last night, and the M1A Scout Squad in Black or Walnut seems to be the best choice from a pragmatism point of view. That said, I love the look of the M1A National...
  2. Police just blew up suspicious package in Boston Seaport Area

    I don't have much more info. Roads were closed. We heard the explosion. Lots of choppers in the air. NVM - dupe of Off topic thread.
  3. Holding Their Own V: The Alpha Chronicles(No Spoilers)

    I just finished reading this, and I have to say, I thought it was excellent. The story continues to develop, all the main characters remain, and there is a fair amount of action. The book reads really fast; I got this on Monday and finished it yesterday, mostly reading on the train. The...
  4. DOB required for letter of reference - Waltham

    I'm basically just looking for feedback here. I am writing a letter for a friend in Waltham, and in addition to my name, address, and telephone number, they want my date of birth. I presume they mean to use it to run a CORI on me, or something similar. Basically, I prefer to give my friend the...
  5. My Meeting with State Senator Spilka - And Your Mission

    Your Mission: Get face time with your legislators and EDUCATE THEM!!! Be polite, have your information ready, make your points, and be prepared to respond to their questions and concerns. Summary: I get the impression that magazine size limits and enhanced background checks, and ensuring...
  6. Sta-Bil follow-up/field test -14 months later

    A little more than a year ago, 14 months, to be precise, I filled 4 NATO Jerry cans with 4.5 gallons of gasoline and 3 ounces of Sta-Bil. I wasn't really sure how long this would keep the gasoline good, but my plan was to store it for 6-12 months and then rotate it. I let it go a while longer...
  7. Bunch of new bills filed - malegislature.gov

    Well, apologies for no link, but in searching for the text of Linsky's bill at malegislature.gov, I found about ten new bills on damned near every gun related topic you can imagine, from body armor, storage, and habitual offenders with guns, to a bill that would reinstitute the death penalty if...
  8. Good WSJ column with a lot of facts/stats

    This was in today's Wall Street Journal. It has a lot of facts and statistics showing how the AWB did not reduce crime, good explanations of differences between military and civilian weapons, and the pointlessness of magazine restrictions. It will give you some good information to use in your...
  9. Another Letter to My Rep

    This one is a bit longer and more detailed, since the first batch was targeted to a group of people. Feel free to crib if you like. Ms. *****, I am writing you tonight to voice my concerns regarding potential new gun restrictions in the Commonwealth, and to ask that you do not support...
  10. Response From Ed Markey

    Dear (Loser), Thank you for contacting me with your concerns about gun control in America. I appreciate hearing your thoughts on this very important matter. The fatal school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut shocked and horrified us all. Our hearts broke for the loss of so many young lives. As...
  11. Collision Course by David Crawford - Book Review

    I feel like I should make a couple of disclaimers here before I post what may be a disappointing review. I don't want to give a lot away, and without providing spoilers, it's hard to do that. Overall, I think this is an excellent book. It is much shorter, and much less epic, than Light's...
  12. Founders Book Bomb/Launch day - Anyone buying?

    I'm just curious who's buying or has ordered. I didn't read the first, thought the second was meh. My only real reason for buying it would be to support Rawles and his site, as my expectations are pretty low. (and yeah, I know I spoke highly of Survivors initially, but that was before I read...

    I was up in Epping, NH this week taking Intermediate Handgun Skills, Intro to Defensive Shooting, aka Handgun 103. This is considered an intermediate course that focuses on practical shooting scenarios, skill improvement, and defensive shooting scenarios. Class check-in is 8:15, with the class...
  14. NOLS/WMI Wilderness First Aid Course Review

    This is a course review of the Wilderness Medicine Institute of NOLS' Wilderness First Aid course as taught at REI in Reading. This is a 2-day course taught over the weekend(9-6 Sat/Sun) and completion of the course results in a Wilderness First Aid certification good for two years. The course...
  15. Holding Their Own Volumes 1 & 2 - Book Review - Added a bit on Vol. 3 in post 4

    I just finished reading Holding Their Own and Holding Their Own: The Independents and thought some NES-folk might like a book review. I'm going to try not to give much away, so I apologize for vagueness. The books are written by Joe Nobody, and appear to be Print-on-Demand, given the quality...
  16. Sigh - Another mass shooting - Sikh temple in Wisconsin

    7 dead, including one shooter. Details sketchy ATM. http://www.todaystmj4.com/news/local/165061026.html And it was such a nice afternoon. Sorry, this is a dupe. The other thread title didn't say what it was about. http://www.northeastshooters.com/vbulletin/threads/168869-Here-we-go-again
  17. Gold and silver prices are down

    I had to go back to late February to find anything on the subject, so I thought it would be worth mentioning that gold is right at 1600 and silver is under 30 for the first time in a while. I'm hoping the downward trend will continue a while longer, as people think the economy is getting better...
  18. Monday Holiday Tragedy - I'm off, but the Candy Store's Closed

    This is my sad lamentation/commiseration thread. I hardly ever get weekdays off. when I do, it's usually a Monday holiday, and most all of the gun shops are closed on Mondays. It's hard for me to get to them on Saturdays because it's usually the last thing on my to do list, so if I make it...
  19. Is 2M dead? What am I doing wrong?

    I hate to post this thread, but after a few months with my new handheld, I have found little activity on the bug local repeaters, 145.23, 146.64, 146.955(has activity, but I can't reach it from home),and 147.15. I hear some taking on 955 when I am on the road on weekends, but other than...
  20. Questions re: Survival/Bug out vehicle engines and equipment

    I'm thinking about a truck for weekends, camping, etc, and one that could potentially be used for bugging out. I like the F150, but have a few considerations that I'd like opinions on. First, it seems to me that almost any vehicle built in the last 10-15 years has some sort of ECU and...
