Re: Church shooting

I thought domestic violence was grounds for forfeiture of ones second amendment rights? Being unable to qualify/perform duties as a rifleman was a big part of why people were discharged for it (I thought?)

Re: Choose an APC during war.

In a PAW- fuel will be an issue for any gas/petrol engine. It's a little less of an issue with diesel (I've explained my views on this in other threads.)

Bug net, bug net, bug net... mosquitoes are annoying, but Chagas disease from assassin bugs can mess you up (and it isn't usually looked for by medical staff in the US) years later.

Re: Suggestions for compact gun cleaning kit

I second the Otis kits but I will very strongly suggest one of the Hoppes green/red pull-through bore snakes as an additional piece of kit. They are way more convenient than punch rods + brush + patches. (though I would keep those with as well)

I have a 1999 with similar mileage. I will echo what crypto says about the electrical problems. My front two speakers are out and my window child lock is stuck so only the driver can control the windows. Other than that and an interior I'm responsible for wrecking the jeep is great.

Staying awake during post: caffeine, nicotine, and physical activity. If you're starting to get too tired take a minute and knock out some pushups/squats/lunges, it will keep you going for a bit.
