Re: Chinese Mystery Illness Prompts Hospital Lockdown

More worrisome is they think that only 5.1% of the number of cases have been reported. Not because of cover up but difficulty in detecting infection until the person becomes symptomatic. (15 days incubation from other sources) IMO that is a sensible statement. The PRC would not be going to this ext...

Re: Chinese Mystery Illness Prompts Hospital Lockdown

According to this https://bnonews.com/index.php/2020/01/the-latest-coronavirus-cases/ as of an hour ago, total confirmed cases worldwide are 1320 and the number of deaths are 41. So here are a few musings of mine: - We can assume the confirmed cases in China/World are vastly under-reported - why? B...

Spring Snow Trip

RonnyRonin and I were excited to get out on a weekend in May. Of course May was very snow filled here so whilst we were planning an ultralight distance hike it turned into an ultralight snow slog with some extra shivering from the cold. BUT it was a good experience in the shoulder season. My pack wi...

Re: The definitive ZS MRDS thread

I have a Shield RMS/C coming with an 8moa dot (large) that I picked up for a great deal on ebay.

It's going on a G19 slide to co-witness with my irons. Excited to move forward. At distance the RDS really does help.

If the Jews are allowed their own private patrols why not the Muslims?

Re: Vortex optics

Big fan of my UH-1 "EOtech" beater from Vortex. It's heavy but feels robust and survived some drops.

I like the reticle - donut of death, 2moa dot and a close range triangle (don't need it but doesn't distract)

Re: Sanctions on Russian Ammo?

Just keep in mind when stocking up that defensive handgun ammo is the ammo you want to invest in the least. Most of it relies on a minimum velocity to perform properly and even a relatively small loss in velocity can cause problems. Can you expand more on this for someone like me still newer to the...
