The more I read about these clowns the more I think I should become an arms dealer. Apparently the only risk is RSI from cashing checks and shipping fake stuff to our allies.

Got the word today that a large portion of my former team has been let go; we had a GTG scheduled for Friday afternoon already, it just turns out it will be more of an Irish wake than planned.

Bride of the Sea

This episode of Love + Radio interviews Sam Najjair, who left a relatively comfortable life to be a soldier, then a sniper, then a leader in the Libyan revolution. His discussion of why he wanted to be a sniper is interesting – because it was much more personal to him to be able to see the faces of the people he killed.

A second discussion, at the end of the episode, talks about how he handled another sniper. I want to give nothing away – it isn’t a sniper-chasing-sniper drama, by this time he is a leader; the story is still very dramatic. The episode is an hour long, the story starts at 42:37, but I suggest you listen to the whole thing.

Mixing powders and oils

I was talking to someone about mixing powders and oils; he uses a setup made for meat processing. It consists of a grinder (which is really just a 1/2 horse motor with extra bits to throw away) and a seven gallon tilt mixer. The mixer can handle 33 pounds of meat, or about the same mass of Boomerite for ~33-16 targets. It has a lid to keep powders down and scraper blades to keep the sides clean. I might sneak down to Lacey this weekend to take a look at one.

Consumer thermal is only getting cheaper and better.  Someone told me a couple of years ago to hold off on buying thermal sights, as things were going to get cheaper soon – I guess this is part of the first wave of that.
