IT’S A GIVEN
While shooting a firearm most inexperienced people close their eyes before they pull the trigger!
TACTICALLY DONE SFT2
Telescopic sights are used with all types of systems that require accurate aiming but are most commonly found on firearms, particularly rifles. Historically the rifleman or “sniper”, the all eye in the sky who in the rite time covers the safety to all his men and to all beneath his feet. Shooting a rifle properly comes with great responsibility just as firing any weapon. So a scope for your riffle is as important as wearing your glasses. The SFT2 scope seems to be one of top selling sights equipped with a 3 Piece 4-12×50 Scope Package including Red or Green Laser and Holographic Dot Sight. Thanks to its built-in Picatinny rail, this scope is easily mountable to any AR style top rail or bolt rifle rail adapter. Windage and elevation adjustments with 1/4 MOA audible-click stops and fingertip turrerts. High quality matte black finish, 100% waterproof, roof and shock proof ensuring flawless performance for any caliber. Integrated Picatinny rails built into the scope body offer ample space for a variety of accessories including the laser sight and holographic sight. Reasonably priced for around $140.00 you’ll be able to pin the tail on the donkey! (Please Be Tactically Responsibly)
AR-15 OR AK-47?
An AR-15 is a rifle designed by Armalite that fires a 5.56 round in semi automatic, it is a civilian rifle. The AK-47 is a rifle designed by Kalishnikov and fires a 7.62 round in full automatic, it is a military rifle. They are visually completely different from each other. If you remember prior articles ago of the Gatling gun, we spoke about rapid fire! The AK-47 is cheaper and easier to manufacture, however it is also less accurate than the AR-15, due to the difference in ammunition (the AR-15 fires a smaller round), or due to the fact that the rifles use different loading systems to chamber the next round, it is less accurate than the AR-15. The classic AK-47 that everyone knows usually has wooden parts to the gun, even modern variants of the gun are usually heavier than their AR-15 counterpart. The AK-47 and AR-15 also use different sights for aiming, the AR-15 sight is usually raised while the AK-47 sight is inline with the barrel. Statistically from my research I personally rather an AR15 due to accuracy. Despite the fact that you could pull off more rounds with the AK, if you can’t hit something in 30 shots or more, you have different problems! (Please Fire Arm Responsibly).
DRESS TO IMPRESS
Dressing for the proper occasion doesn’t necessarily always mean you need to put a tie on. Sometimes your day may call for something special say for example a bullet proof vest. Body armor has advanced extremely in the past 10 years with a lot of history prior. There are several different styles. Ballistic vests use layers of very strong fibers to “catch” and deform a bullet, mushrooming it into a dish shape, and spreading its force over a larger portion of the vest fiber. The vest absorbs the energy from the deforming bullet, bringing it to a stop before it can completely penetrate the textile matrix. Some layers may be penetrated but as the bullet deforms, the energy is absorbed by a larger and larger fiber area. While a vest can prevent bullet penetration, the vest and wearer still absorb the bullet’s impulse. Even without penetration, heavy bullets deal enough force to cause blunt force trauma under the impact point. Vest specifications will typically include both penetration resistance requirements and limits on the amount of impact force that is delivered to the body. In plain English, the shit’s going to hurt either way. Vests designed for bullets offer less protection against blows from sharp implements, such as knives, arrows, ice picks or from bullets manufactured with hardened materials. Prison guards and police often wear vests which are designed specifically against bladed weapons and sharp objects. These vests may incorporate coated and laminated para-aramid textiles or metallic components. Textile vests may be augmented with metal for example steel or titanium plates that provide extra protection to vital areas. These hard armor plates have proven effective against all handgun bullets and a range of rifles. These upgraded ballistic vests have become standard in military use, as soft body armor vests are ineffective against military rifle rounds. The history of affective vests date far back as 1914. I personally couldn’t imagine being the test pilot, “when I nod my head, you hit it’! (Please Vest Responsibly).
PINS & NEEDLES
A grenade is a small explosive, chemical, or gas bomb. It is used at short range, thrown by hand or launched with a hand held grenade launcher (I want one)! The resulting powerful explosion causes shockwave and disperses high-speed fragments of the metal, which provoke shrapnel wounds. The word grenade comes from the French word for pomegranate, early grenades looked like pomegranates.
Grenades first came into use around the 15th century and the first inventor cannot be named. The first grenades were hollow iron balls filled with gunpowder and ignited by a slow burning wick (not John Wick). Armies began to form specialized divisions of soldiers trained to throw grenades. These specialists were called grenadiers, and for a time were regarded as elite fighters.
The hand grenades of World War I can be described as empty cans filled with gunpowder and stones, with a primitive fuse. The first safe (throwing) grenade was the Mills bomb, invented by English engineer and designer William Mills in 1915. Mills bomb incorporated some design elements of a Belgian self-igniting grenade. These changes revolutionized trench-war combat. Two other important grenade designs that emerged from the first war are the German stick grenade (sticky bomb) a narrow explosive with a fucked up pull chord that was prone to accidental detonation, and then there was the Mk II “pineapple” grenade, designed for the U.S. military in 1918, hence looking like a pineapple.
