December 13, 2017 -- A Quick Run Around the Web

  • "Extended Buffer Tube for AR Pistols"--The Firearms Blog. Leapers is now offering a pistol buffer tube that is 8.5 inches in length. According to the article, "[t]he interior length of the tube makes it compatible with standard buffers and springs." Although it can work with any pistol brace, it has some features intended specifically for the Gear Head Works Tailhook Mod 1 brace.
  • "Long Range Shooting: Barrel Vibration & Accuracy"--The Load Out Room. This is an article discussing, in basic terms, that part of interior ballistics commonly termed barrel harmonics. Basically, you have two types of waves being set up in the barrel: sine waves that travel down the barrel and cause the barrel to whip, and pressure/compression waves that can stretch or shrink the bore diameter. Per these theories the best accuracy will be obtained when the bullet leaves the barrel during a node when the waves have the least impact on the barrel and, therefore, accuracy is based on finding the optimal barrel time (OBT) for a particular barrel.
        The encampment was nestled in a canyon several hundred feet from Sepulveda Boulevard and the 405 Freeway, hidden from passing cars. For several years, it had been home to an unknown number of people, officials said.
             Investigators said the fire had not been set deliberately and they have not found any of the people who lived there. The camp — one of scores of makeshift communities that have grown along freeways, rivers and open space across Los Angeles — was largely destroyed in the fire, leaving authorities with little evidence.
              News that one of Los Angeles’ most affluent neighborhoods was damaged in a fire sparked by some of the city’s poorest residents added a sober note to the incident, with some officials saying it underscores the need to do more to house the homeless.
      The article also mentions that Los Angeles County is estimated to have 58,000 homeless residents.
                The intense fire is burning away vegetation that holds the soil in place and baking a waxy layer into the earth that prevents the water from sinking more than a few inches into the ground, experts said.
                    With one heavy rain, the soil above this waterproof layer can become saturated, start to slide in hilly areas and transform into something catastrophic.
                 ... when you’re conservative woke, you’re ready to deploy the most powerful non-bullet firing weapon in your liberty-loving arsenal – your devastating capability not to give a damn what the liberals and their Conservative, Inc., cruise-shilling Benedict Arnold buddies say.
                     When you don’t care anymore, they got nothing.
                       What are these whiny weasels going to do to you anyway? Not like you? Think bad things about you? Taunt you a second time?
                         Look. Learn. Accept the harsh truth.
                           They hate you.
                             They hate you.
                               They hate you.
                                 No matter how you try to please them, regardless of whether or not you comply with their every command, that will never change.
                                    They hate you. Govern yourself accordingly…
                            AC adds his own thoughts:
                                     Amygdala is growing on both sides and as it does, we are coming to hate each other. and as we hate each other, we cease caring what the other side thinks. ...
                                         ... And this is not a destination – it is a waypoint on the path we are traveling.
                                             r/K Theory would indicate the only way to restore unity as the K-shift passes involves massive mortality, and looking at our national lack-of-unity, it is hard to think that is not going to be the case.
                                    With this in mind, I think the question the GOP and Democrats ought to be asking is not why Roy Moore lost the senate race in Alabama, especially considering all the allegations made against him, but how he came so close to winning notwithstanding those allegations.
                                             Here’s a little secret we have to say out loud: Women love the sexual interplay they experience with men, and they relish men desiring their beauty. Why? Because it is part of their nature.
                                              Women want to be desired by men, to attract them, to be the only woman in the world for that man. Their beauty is an essential part of their allure, especially when men and women first meet. They have little else to go on because they don’t know each other, and beauty serves as a guidepost to greater interest.
                                                Outside of a woman looking for a mate, her beauty is a source of power because men and other women value it. This is why married women still want to be beautiful. It’s an expression of their femininity, which doesn’t disappear at the altar.
                                                  We don’t need studies to bear this out, though we do have them. A recent Pew Research study says society values physical attractiveness in women the most. Nurturing and empathy are second. The top traits most valued in men are morality and professional success. In other words, men want women who are attractive and emotionally connective, and women want good men who are financially successful.
