    The Idea looked better on Paper - In World War Two Japan had a paratroop corps, Germany provided the technical assistance with equipment implementation in the late 1930s. One of the methods was the use of parachute-equipped containers housing the firearms, this was dropped separately from the paratrooper. In the combat drop at Sumatra (Japanese) and Crete (Germany), both drop zones had problems of weapons containers landing far from troops, resulting being out gunned. Especially, the experiences of the airborne attack on Palembang in Sumatra, Dutch East Indies, February 13-15, 1942. In that battle, the airborne troops were equipped with...

    Extreme Recycling - Want a new AR lower, but can't afford it? No problem. Just collect soda cans and make one. Everybody loves getting new guns. Unfortunately for some of us, they are just aren't in the budget. If you don't have the cash for a new AR, you can always just start collecting soda cans. No, you don't sell the cans; you melt them down and make your own AR. Meet Jared of Gun Craft 101, this is how he likes to recycle his aluminum. Jared starts out with a bunch of aluminum cans, melts them into ingots, then...

    Stolen During The Great Depression - George Irish was an independent-minded man. In 1917, he was 25 years old. He made a living as a jack-of-all-trades in Summers, Conn., just across the border from Massachusetts. He wasn't married and America had just become involved in what became know as World War I. He volunteered for the army. He was assigned to an artillery unit and trained in the Midwest before crossing the Atlantic in an improvised troop ship. In France, he didnt work the guns, instead he kept the dough boys who labored over them fed. He was a muleskinner,...

    Portland has become a political football, with Donald Trump essentially running his presidential campaign against Democratic mayors like Wheeler, tweeting that Portland will never recover with a fool for a Mayor. He tried mixing with the Agitators and Anarchists and they mocked him. He would like to blame me and the Federal Government for going in, but he hasnt seen anything yet. We have only been there with a small group to defend our U.S. Courthouse, because he couldnt do it. Both sides are getting their information through purposely bottlenecked media reports, and the results are predictably distorted and dangerous....

    Groups of conservatives, QAnon supporters, and others on social media have jumped on the release of the French coming-of-age film Cuties and a trending Cancel Netflix hashtag to associate the company with pedophilia. A Netflix spokesperson on Thursday defended Cuties as an award-winning social commentary, according to the DCNF, Cuties is a social commentary against the sexualization of young children. Its an award-winning film and a powerful story about the pressure young girls face on social media and from society more generally growing up and wed encourage anyone who cares about these important issues to watch the movie.

    On September 11, 2001, two planes were flown into the famous twin towers of the World Trade Center in New York City. 19 terrorists associated with the Islamic extremist group al-Qaeda hijacked four airplanes and carried out suicide attacks against targets in the United States. The third plane hit the Pentagon just outside Washington, DC, and the fourth plane crashed in a field in Pennsylvania. Over 3,000 people were killed during the 9/11 terrorist attacks. The 9/11 attack triggered major US initiatives to combat terrorism. 19 years ago at 8.45 am on a Tuesday morning, an American Airlines Boeing 767...

    Almost Fifty-three years ago, the 173rd Airborne Brigade (Separate) fought in close quarters and uphill through deep foliage to take Hill 875 in what became known as the Battle of Dak To The 173rd Airborne Brigade had already seen action before moving inland to South Vietnam's Central Highlands in early November of 1967. This support included a role in Operation Junction City in the spring, as well as a search-and destroy (S&D) mission in the vicinity of Tuy Ho on the south-central coast. The 173rd was assigned to Dak To after intelligence reports indicated that North Vietnamese Army (NVA) regiments...

    Sighting in a rifle is an important thing to do if you want your rifle to be dead on when taking a shot. Which brings us to the Carlos Hathcock way of sighting in a rifle. For those that dont know who Carlos Hathcock is, he was a United States Marine Corps (USMC) sniper with a service record of 93 confirmed kills. What many people dont realize is that the Unertl scope back in the day doesnt have glass amplification. There also isnt any internal adjustments to zero. The scope adjusts with turrets integral to the rear scope mount, and...

    A knife is a tool, and you must choose the correct one for each specific job. While you can dig a hole with a spoon, a shovel works a lot better, and the same goes with knives. Also, I don't jump out of helicopters with a tactical knife clenched in my teeth to cut off the heads of the bad guys. I just like to hunt and fish, and gut, skin and cut up what I kill, so my advice comes from that perspective. - Just because you skinned your first bear with a certain knife doesn’t automatically mean that...

    The Little Badger's overall design principal is minimalistic. The Chiappa engineers gave the little gun everything it needs. I first encountered the Chiappa Little Badger single-shot, I pegged it as a survival rifle. It comes in basic black, either in 22LR or 22WMR, both of which are fine for small game. With an overall length of 31 inches, it is already small, but it also folds over and onto itself, creating an extremely compact triangle about 16.5 inches tall and 8 inches across the base. It weighs less than 3 pounds, making it only slightly heavier than large center-fire...

    What's feared more than a Sniper Lurking in the Darkness? A sniper that shoots an exploding bullet, sounds far fetched out of a James Bond movie. Exploding rounds have been around since World War II. The Germans made an 8mm rifle ammunition which exploded upon impact. Which originally was design to help zero machine guns on an aircraft or as a replacement to tracer rounds out of a belt-fed so that you are making a bi-directional identifier from where youre firing from. Though the round was banned by the Hague Convention this didnt stop the usage of it. During World...

    Guns are much more than guns to die-hard hunting folks. Sometimes they help define the love of a family as grandfather passes their guns from one generation to the next. And, more often than not, the gun that is cherished the most as a symbol of tradition and collective wisdom is the "humble deer rifle". The following hunting rifles are no longer in production yet still find their way to the the hands of hunters who value both tradition and well-design sporting arms. Maybe this is what the younger generation rifle lacks. Savage 99 Savages Model 99, preceded by the...

    Presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden shrugged off a question Tuesday about taking a cognitive assessment test, which President Trump has challenged him to do while misrepresenting what the test measures. Joe Biden was asked by Errol Barnett of CBS News if hed taken a cognitive test during an interview this morning. A flustered Biden responded by asking the black reporter if hes a junkie. Biden also pulled out his signature Cmon man comment used to express outrage at anyone asking a question he wont answer.

    At first glance the SIG P226 air pistol could be mixed up with the SIG P226, which comes in 9mm and .40 caliber, which is a pistol preferred by elite military forces around the world. I can see how their airgun could be used for training purposes and you could do a lot of inexpensive training with a pistol that so closely resembles your real one. The P226 air pistol uses a conventional size 12-gram Co2 canister, which slips into the back of the grip. The magazine pops out of the bottom the same way it would on any modern...

    Was the Preferred Weapon for the U.S. "Tunnel Rats" while Hunting the Việt Cộng Since World War II, America's elite forces have used quiet firearms for missions where it pays to be silent. Sound suppressors—commonly referred known as silencers—remain in service today. What many don't know is that U.S. commandos once carried revolvers with special cartridges designed to muffle gunshots. According to a 1968 Army report on silencers, "Throughout the history of firearms, gun noise has been of considerable concern to the military." "To the enemy, gun noise reveals presence and, often, the location of the shooter, thus resulting in...
