    "Ghost guns" are another fabricated and irrational scare tactic term akin to "assault rifles" for those who are hoplophobic. Serial numbers don't stop the illegal use of a firearm any more than a VIN stops someone from stealing a car. The right to keep and bear arms is an alienable one, not "granted" by any government. And, as we all can attest to, anything the government gets its nose into is more likely to get fucked up that fixed!!

    Published today in the Federal register, effective May 20, 2024... Definition of “Engaged in the Business” as a Dealer in Firearms Unless this gets thrown out in the courts, you kiss goodbye to private firearm sales for those of us who still live in free states. If you don't feel like trying to understand that legal mumbo-jumbo, William Kirks does an excellent initial summary... Thanks to the idiots behind the "Bipartisan Safer Communities Act" for actually believing disarming law-abiding citizens will reduce shootings!! 🤬🤬🤬
  3. Just got our Shirt's regular info sharing email, and saw this shit... STELLAR TALENT ACQUISITION RECRUITING REFERRAL (STARR) Program Air Force Recruiting Service (AFRS) is asking for your help in strengthening our force and wants to reward you for your efforts. The STARR program, governed by DAFMAN 36-2806 A2.14.1.6, was created to award medals to Airmen who refer someone to the Air Force who ships to basic training. In fact, if you refer just one person who ships to basic training, you are eligible for an AF Achievement medal. If you refer three who ship, you get two Achievement medals and if you refer five who ship you get an AF Commendation medal (no more than three medals can be awarded to one person). Since its inception in May 2023, 25 AF members have qualified for AF Achievement medals with the first recipient being an A1C that was one week out of technical training school. Imagine putting together a BTZ package, EPB push statement, or even going before a promotion board with a recently acquired Achievement medal. The STARR program is run through the Aim High App and there are just four easy steps to refer someone. 1) Download the app, 2) create an account (using your .mil email), 3) fill out prerequisites, 4) either you as the referrer can put in the person being referred’s information or you can send them a QR code (or link) to fill in that information for themselves (see picture below). Warning! Old Guy rant!! It took me two years as an A1C to earn my first AFAM where I was the Wing Airman of the Quarter for the largest tactical fighter wing in the USAF (81 TFW). It took another 18 months as a SSgt to get my first AFCOM. I know neither is an overly prestigious award, but at the time I felt my hard work and efforts were being recognized and I was proud to receive both! Recruiters already get a ribbon, why not expand the criteria to get one of those to these individuals instead of watering down awards meant for duty performance? /Rant
  4. I think they were being highly optimistic about that 67%...

    And they make fun of the USAF?!?
  7. Soon available at your local Class VI... Here's some useless trivia for everyone! The Class VI store is called that as the Army divides supplies into classes. Ammunition, for example, is Class V. Liquor is one of the personal items covered by Class VI! https://www.dau.edu/sites/default/files/Migrated/CopDocuments/Military Classes of Supply.pdf

  9. Yeah, it's a dumpster fire of biblical proportions; but it's also a great source of info such as this! Until someone gets seriously swatted for posting sensitive shit on there, it's not going to change...
  10. So, other than the conversations are taking place on social media and not over beers in the dorms, the topics haven't changed in 40+ years....
  11. Not a fan of Trump, but there is no way you can convince me the last four years under Biden were better! Had Trump won, our economy would most likely be doing better, our foreign and domestic policies been more focused on important things than wokeness and transgender recognition, and honestly I believe most Americans would have a lot more pride in this country! The fact that Biden even won (if he even did!) and pretty much every action he has taken over the past four years has been a major embarrassment to the US. This has got to be the largest amount of horseshit claims I've ever seen in my life, and I did 25 years in the USAF! The Biden-Harris Record | The White House Does the White House really think everyone is so stupid to believe all that?!? Again, I would prefer a different candidate to vote for, one more along the lines of Reagan in the 80s; but once again we are stuck between a Giant Douche and a Turd Sandwich. I for one would rather endure the Giant Douche then to spend another four years having a Turd Sandwich shoved down our throats!
  12. I hope not! Watching this is my Easter tradition!

    What can are you running on that? I'm in the market for one with the ATF approving individual (not Trusts) Form 1s for suppressors in a matter of days, once I see how I do on my taxes (if you wait until the last minute, it only takes a minute!). Of course, with the quick turnarounds most online suppressor vendors (Silencer Central, Capital Armory, etc.) are sold out of stock on many items. 🤬🤬🤬
  15. Whoops!! Army investigating Nazi imagery on Special Forces patch posted online In case anyone isn't aware, Army SF has used similar designs (but with the traditional SF skull and arrows, not the SS Totenkopf) in the past... And I guess no one has ever noticed that KISS has used the German Schutzstaffel's doppelte Siegrune or double “lightning bolts” (stylized as ᛋᛋ using Armanen runes) for decades... The irony being Gene Simmons (real name Chaim Witz) and Paul Stanley (real name Stanley Eisen) are of Jewish descent! (Both denied any intentional likeness to Nazi symbolism in the logo)...
  16. Not quite "pretty damn significant." While the ninth largest US port, there are plenty of alternatives which can reduce the impact while the channel is cleared of debris. There are also alternate HAZMAT routes but they either go through the city or a distance around it. It will have more impact locally, but nationally it shouldn't really be felt unless the market controllers wants to exploit the accident for gain (as it regularly does for gas prices following any incidents in the Middle East)...
  17. You wouldn't believe how many are claiming it was a deliberate act by the Chinese!! 🫢🫢🫢
  18. "From the Inbox: "Col Albertsen micro managed the MXG staff incessantly. Under his leadership, he made the Mx Training Facility at Holloman work extra hours, implement redundant training courses, and would routinely insult commanders at the monthly training meeting (which were only required by AFI quarterly). He was stuck in the past and was the epitome of toxic leadership. Holloman had one of the highest mishaps /accidents rates in AETC if not the AF (that is documented). Finally, he was the type of leader who held down the throttle to "ludicrous speed" at all times. He even attempted to cancel min manning for Christmas two years in a row, even when the wing CC announced no flying. We are glad to see him fired."
  19. Just thought I'd toss this here... The Final 'Wizzo': Marine Corps Captain Graduates as Service's Last F/A-18 Weapons Systems Officer
