Fighting the Cold - U.S. Marine Corps training in Finland

A detachment of United States marines from the Black Sea Rotational Force is training in the Jaeger Brigade in Sodankylä and the Guard Jaeger Regiment in Helsinki, Finland. The marines and jaegers are swapping experiences and building skills in cold weather operations and military operations in urban areas.

Salient Arms International known for their high end custom Glocks, AR-15’s and Benelli shotguns have recently announced they plan on moving out of California and are heading to Las Vegas, Nevada by the end of 2014. There is some debate among the gun community whether packing up shop and leaving anti-gun states is a viable solution. Some proponents want companies to stay and fight back but if anti-gun laws makes business difficult, it makes sense to set up somewhere more gun friendly. (GRH)

Welp I can’t blame them.

My next build was going to be an SBR, but now I’m thinking of going the pistol route. The Thordsen AR Pistol Builder Package looks like a great alternative to other options. Plus I don’t have to deal with the stamp tax.

So, now which 5.56 barrel length to choose,10.5” or 11.5”?

This is Chester. When I was in Afghanistan I got a care package from one of those “Adopt a Soldier” programs that lets families send care packages to service men and women who are deployed overseas. Anyway, I got this care package, and it came with the usual stuff: Baby wipes, crackers, peanut butter, the Dad threw in a pack of cigarettes, and there was some jerky. But there was also a little beanie baby gold fish and a hand written note from a 7 year old girl that said
“Dear Soldier, (I wasn’t even mad)
I hope you are doing well. I’m sorry you have to miss thanksgiving with your family. This is my friend Chester. He keeps me safe from monsters, but I think you need him more than I do. I hope he keeps you safe from the monsters you’re fighting. Take good care of him for me”.

You bet your ass that little fish was in my pocket every time I went on patrol.
