Girl’s fallen in with baaaaad company

Just look at those rogues!

And the result? She’s running hippie-blessed 5.56mm instead of the good ol’ orthodox 7.62mm like a man!

Disgusting, don’t you think?

I’ve only read “Hordes of Chanakra” so far and it was a 4/5 book, definitely good enough to try his other titles.

I wonder what that something is.

Seeking recommendations for a web designer

Originally published at VolkStudio Blog. You can comment here or there.

I’d like to separate my professional site from my personal site. Since my web design days are in the past, I’d like to work with an expert on making a new site just for my creative direction and photography work. Suggestions? Endorsements?

California girl in America

Originally published at VolkStudio Blog. You can comment here or there.

In the finest tradition of Japanese anime, running a belt through the M60 gets a big smile from a 14 year old girl. She showed good competency and safety habits…especially considering that was her first time ever on a range!

Self-identification matters

I identify as an American. My Thompson identifies as a Chicago typewriter. It’s a First Amendment matter now.

Shooting the breeze with friends

Originally published at VolkStudio Blog. You can comment here or there.

I will post the technical review later, but for now I just want to note how much I enjoy being able to both shoot and have a conversation with my friends at the same time.

Anybody near Nashville able to help me test autofocus of my camera?

Originally published at VolkStudio Blog. You can comment here or there.

My 5DSR is being inconsistent. I’d like to try adjusting it to individual lenses, but it seem that it doesn’t focus the same way twice, so there’s no baseline for adjustments. Perhaps I am doing something wrong? I can work more with my Sony body for now, or use Live View whenever possible…but I want to figure out what the problem is before I dump my huge investment in Canon glass and turn to Nikon in hopes that it’s even slightly better.

Does anyone local to me have experience with testing cameras?

As an aside, does anyone make adapters for use of Canon lenses with Sony bodies that will retain full auto focus? Metabones adapter I am using doesn’t despite being advertised as working that way.

Making America better, one immigrant at a time

Please read this statement from my friend Jing Zheng. In my opinion, he’s a brilliant inventor, a capable engineer and a great America in all but citizenship status. He was born in China by accident, while his commitment to our country has never wavered. If you have suggestions on expediting his Green Card process, please let me know. He would a great asset to both culture and defense capabilities of America.

Last call on firearms training near Nashville

Originally published at VolkStudio Blog. You can comment here or there.

Today, I discovered that one of the two class links in my previous posts was malformed…maybe that’s why only a couple of people signed up for the class by Monday 13. The rifle course has three students signed up, the pistol course only two. If five people total don’t sign for each class, they’d have to be cancelled…which would be a waste of a unique opportunity. Tatiana is a superb trainer, and it’s unlikely she would have time to make another trip to TN in the near future.

Use friendsofoleg2017 discount code to save 15% off the listed prices. $148.75 is a heck of a deal for the quality of training you’d receive. The last year’s classes went very well. If you have any questions, contact her or me.

Death next door

Found deer remains on the property adjacent to mine. Not sure if it was hit by a car or taken down by coyotes, more likely the former. The 45mph road is only 10 yards away.

No extra holes in the back of the head, so probably not a victim of either Mafia, OGPU or Hillary Clinton.

For a fee to a good home: 22TCM

Originally published at VolkStudio Blog. You can comment here or there.

A good friend has to sell a 5-inch double-stack Armscor 22TCM/9mm Luger barrel combo. At Bud’s, it runs $621 cash price, which is the lowest retail anywhere. He bought it with 500 rounds of 22TCM ammunition, of which 490 come with the gun. Ten were fired to verify functioning. The pistol is like new in the hard case,  comes with the total of two 17-round and two 18-round Mecgar magazines. Asking $640 for the lot that would cost over $900 to duplicate. Please inquire with Frank (frankstrattoniii@gmail.com)

Option 2: I buy his 5″ model and you get my 4″ set (same two barrels, with about 200 rounds through the 22TCM upper) for $540.

Michael has a filter. He just doesn’t bother using it most of the time. He’s brilliant, so people overlook that to hear him talk more.

Economic ignorance or a real concern?

Originally published at VolkStudio Blog. You can comment here or there.

I see people bellyaching about Mexicans working in the US and sending cash home. When a person performs work or sells a product, they get money for it. The money is a claim on future services or goods. If that money/claim is saved, then the value of the remaining money in the US economy rises: fewer dollars are chasing the unchanged amount of goods and services. If the money is used to buy third-country goods, the same is still true. If, eventually, somebody buys an American product with that cash, that merely sets things back into balance. What exactly is the problem with taking dollars out of the country, again?
