Camouflage Your AR-15

Camouflage Your AR-15

Let’s face it: your AR-15 (or other black rifle) has a very pronounced silhouette. You may have noticed that a big, black rifle sticks out like a pair of dog balls, especially when its owner is decked out in ACUs.  Silhouette, as a military concept, is any shape that’s discernible […]

Army Downsizing A Boon for Patriot Recruitment

Marines to cut 20,000 active duty personnel in five years.  Army to cut 30,000 troops to meet budget cuts; possibly as many as 100,000 over ten years. One of the most glaring errors of the Iraq Campaign was the culling of the Sunni-dominated Iraqi Army.  Virtually overnight, thousands of Iraqis, […]

On the Coming Civil War

(Thank you for bearing with me and these posts.  Last night I finished the last 4,000 mile round-trip of moving the rest of my belongings to the new Fort Partisan.
