can we get a creepypasta thread going, opchan?

I've been on an /x/ kick the past few days. Stories of wendigos, skinwalkers, shapeshifter stories of native American-based creepiness are my favorites, but anything will do.

I recently lost my old windows install, so I have nothing saved right now and nothing to contribute.

Kicking around an idea for a bill to amend the NFA as such:
Remove suppressors from the nfa entirely.
Reduces sbr length from 16" to 14"
Reduces sbs length from 18" to 16"
Increases NFA tax from $200 to $500

Basically, we make the argument that suppressors are safety and convenience devices, etc etc, and it makes no sense to over-regulate them with the NFA, citing how they're treated in europe, and how encouraging suppressor use would help save people's hearing, as well as make ranges less of a "public nuisance" (which gets them shut down).

Additionally, suppressors are the most popular (and becoming more and more popular) NFA item and cause the atf to be significantly backlogged with paperwork (citing the year+ wait times) as well as the additional hassles of taking the suppressor over state lines, etc. This change will reduce the workload on the government, allowing it to pay attention to what matters more and be faster and more responsive. In order to make up for the lost revenue, we're increasing the other item's tax (this will help convince legislators who are on the fence and makes this bill more of a fiscal issue than a gun rights issue for some). So, more revenue, less bullshit, faster turnaround. All around win for everyone (except Feinstein.)

Finally, suppressors are easy as fuck to make. You can make one with a fucking water bottle and duct tape. The law is unenforceable because of how easy it is to skirt (if you were a criminal) and the fact that criminals don't use illegal suppressors more should alleviate concerns that its going to be used by zomg assassins. Attempting to have the ATF enforce this is a waste of ahem good ahem law enforcement resources when they can be going after people with rubber bands and shoestrings.

There's no way we'll get it to pass with Brock in office, but maybe we can try to get the ball rolling for the next time the republicans have the upper hand. The important thing is to use baby steps to get our rights back and chip away at the NFA and GCA over time, so I'm not proposing anything that would elicit a kneejerk reaction like repealing the hughes amendment or anything like that, but I'd ideally like to follow this up with bills to not count 2 or 3 round burst as a machine gun (premise: you shouldnt go to jail if your gun malfunctions and doubles), clarifications on ATF-abused legal code (like "sporting purposes" or "easily convertible"), and the FFL system.

They're pretty much the reason why I'm even bothering to break into the world of NFA items in the first place. If it weren't for the same deal with the fudd days of the NRA and the legislative actions that ensued from them, my purchases would likely have stayed with handguns and shotguns.
>> No. 88651 ID: 382f32
Remove Silencers
Reduce SBR to 10"
Reduce SBS to 14"
Peg NFA Tax to CPI
Applications must be processed within 6 months of receipt by the ATF.

This is what I would accept. Anything less probably isn't worth the time, effort and political capital. Your proposal would actually make my NFA collection cost more money in taxes than it did for me as is ($1800 vs $2000). Pegging the tax to CPI means that it never costs more than it does today, in relative terms.

Remove everything from the NFA

Increase NFA tax to 10 billion dollars

It's a win for both sides.
>> No. 88658 ID: 0e90df
I am there with you, aside from pegging the fee to any thing. Because of congress's mismanagement of the country, a dollar today can purchase about what a cent could when the NFA was passed. And with the current trend of fe4eva, even tripling the fee will amount to little in a few year's time. So, you simply play up the painfulness of the fee increase, trying to sell it as a tough bargain.
>> No. 88771 ID: b89631
Actually, I am worried about this shit getting amended kinda like how the hughes amendment got tacked onto the FOPA. That is a legit concern, which is why its critical to time it for the correct political environment. If the repubs get control of both houses of congress, theyd be able to tack something like this onto a "must pass" bill like the NDAA or a tax bill.

The $300 increase, imo, isn't too big of a deal, considering that 1. Inflation will eat it away, 2. You won't be paying it for suppressors and 14.5" M4geries, and 3. Wait times will be significantly cut down as the ATF isn't swamped. I think that a "compromise" like this shows that were willing to play ball (without compromising rights) as well as helps sway people who wouldn't care or are uncommitted antis, if we need a few dozen votes to tip the balance, and it puts political pressure on people to pass it, as it benefits other people than just gun owners.

Pegging the cost isn't a good idea because it'll linearly increase instead of a 1 time step. If we go up a fixed dollar amount, we dazzle stupid people with OMG 150% INCREASE FREE MONEY though that goes down to 200 2014 dollars in 20 years.

As much as I love the idea of reducing SBR/SBS to 10/14, I don't know if we'd be able to ram that through as its a way more noticeable change. With my 2" instead of 6" change, it feels like an afterthought and not something for opponents to focus on/point of contention, while still giving us carbine-length ARs. Ideally, if we have the congressional support for getting shorter barrel lengths, I'd agree that that is something we should go after. Maybe we can stagger it like having 1 bill for suppressors and 2" barrel, and then after it passes we do another trade for a 6" or 8" reduction (to 10" or 8" for sbr), and once people realize having that short of a barrel isn't a big deal (nignogs arent CCWing CAR15s) we can try to get it dropped entirely.

BTW, I predict that the ATF under a non-hostile admin would support this bill as it benefits them too to not be swamped handling suppressors and shit (provided they get money still). Having the ATF supporting a bill we're pushing would be really powerful politically.

For those who don't know, way back in the 80's, the US Army contracted Atari to make a Bradley gunner simulator for them based on the popular arcade tank game Battlezone. Only a couple examples survived.

File 140692582196.jpg - (314.78KB , 625x800 , US flight helmet virtual reality Sensorama (1962) .jpg )
US virtual reality Sensorama (1962) 3D video.

The Sensorama was a machine that is one of the earliest known examples of immersive, multi-sensory (now known as multimodal) technology. Morton Heilig, who today would be thought of as a “multimedia” specialist, in the 1950s saw theater as an activity that could encompass all the senses in an effective manner, thus drawing the viewer into the onscreen activity. He dubbed it “Experience Theater”, and detailed his vision of multi-sensory theater in his 1955 paper entitled “The Cinema of the Future” (Robinett 1994). In 1962 he built a prototype of his vision, dubbed the Sensorama, along with five short films for it to display. Predating digital computing, the Sensorama was a mechanical device, which still functions today.

Howard Rheingold (in his 1992 book Virtual Reality) spoke of his trial of the Sensorama using a short film piece that detailed a bicycle ride through Brooklyn, created in the 1950s, and still seemed quite impressed by what it could do more than 40 years later. The Sensorama was able to display stereoscopic 3-D images in a wide-angle view, provide body tilting, supply stereo sound, and also had tracks for wind and aromas to be triggered during the film. Oddly enough in hindsight, Heilig was unable to obtain financial backing for his visions and patents, and so the Sensorama work was halted. Today, it remains primarily a curiosity in the history of Virtual Reality. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sensorama

Most folks wearing the the PT jacket are not wearing it in the morning, and they sure as hell aren't running in it, or doing much in the way of any PT. The only formation you'll be likely to see these in would be the sick call line, more likely than a battalion-level run.

Picture for scale.

I've carried a Kel-Tec on-and-off for about a decade. I added the side-clip and carry the weapon naked against my flesh. This mean I have rust stains on me and it has rust stains on it. Right after I purchased the side-arm, I upgraded to the .357 Sig kit, which is just a 40 S&W slide & mag with a .357 Sig barrel. It is that mouse what roars.

But, I need to refinish it. The bluing is getting rusty, and the barrel is oxidizing black. Also, I dress better, now, and having rust stains on $40 dress shirts is laaaaaaaaaaaame.

Should I tumble or sandblast it myself and do my own rebluing? Pay for nitride? Chrome?

Frankly, if I can't find a good solution from you boys, I'm slipping it to a cop buddy of mine and buying a Para-Ord NightHawg. Thanks,

Production of the .40 and .357s ended several years ago, before the turn of the decade. They've been out of production since at least 2009, probably 2008 or 2007.

Apparently limp wristing and various operating issues due to the low weight of the pistols caused them to be discontinued.

The stock trigger on the Shield and PPS are both better than the Nano's DAO trigger.

Otherwise, the Nano isn't bad, but a tiny bit snappy.

Maybe this is a waste of a thread, but you guys helped me get into the Army and gave me advice on basic. Now I'm at Ft.

This is pretty much for advice, opinions, and anyone else who browses this site and is at Ft. Lee. I'm in the 16th Ordnance BN.
It's very chill so far, my PSG is cool but doesn't take any shit obviously. Tobacco is allowed though I don't use any, just thought it was neat. There's a gym and a PX 50ft from my barracks. Phones allowed after the duty day. I'm a 91c by the way.

Thank you for your decision, committing to it, and updating us on your progress thus far. It might be peacetime and a budget crunch, but I've never met any decent individual who didn't believe that joining the military didn't do them some form of good in their lives, so keep that as a feather in your pocket.

I know AIT is a bit more relaxed for MOSes with longer cycles, so I don't know what to say other than save your money (don't blow your cash on a laptop, DVD player, and brand-new cell phone or any other stuff the kiosks sell), and do some extra PT on your own time on Saturdays if you can. You'll feel the difference a bit of light jogging and sprints can make come Monday.

15 sec sprint @ 80% of what your all out feels like
15 sec jog
30 sec sprint
30 sec jog
45 sec sprint
45 jog

continue bumping up in 15 sec increments to 2 minutes.
When you do your 2 minute sprint you get 1:45 rest
1:45 pushing it sprinting
1:30 rest
continue with 15 sec decreased rest periods, once you hit 1 minute you should be sprinting all out on each sprint down to 15 sec, at which point you're done

Do it 3 times a week once released from the duty day. Your run time will improve.

>This is YOUR opportunity to list the major planks and policy maxims of the Libertarian Party platform and people can debate on what is good and what is dodgy.

I'm not really a Ron Paul Libertarian but-

It's pretty much just what I've been saying above. Check out the "Non-Agression Principle." The concept is essentially just that the initiation of force is always immoral.

That someone has fallen on hard times does not justify theft and coercion in order to assist them.

That doesn't mean that there wont or shouldn't be vehicles to assist those in need. People WANT to help! That's WHY they vote for foreign aid and disaster assistance and the welfare state, because they care about such things, and as far as they know that's the only way to git 'er done.

They're not going to stop caring or stop looking for ways to help just because they can no longer seize their funding at gunpoint.

  I don't hate Ayn Rand's writing or her philosophy, but she's not exactly balanced in her works. Ayn Rand should be understood as the fully-opposed end of the spectrum from Marxist-Leninism as instituted in the Soviet Union, where she spent her early years.

I've read and own four of her books, it seems to me that it's less that she hates personal acts of charity as that she hates legally- or socially-enforced charity. To her, there's nothing worse than saying "You're a bad person for not giving away your stuff/time/effort".

Let me put it this way: I spent two months in Africa, volunteering my time, money, and effort to help folks get medical care. That's me, acting out my own rational belief system, on behalf of others. That was a year ago (actually, I was in Haiti a year ago, but w/e), and I really hope I can get back overseas again. It was a very rewarding, if very difficult, lifestyle.

It would be the most heinous of crimes if I guilt-tripped/threatened/coerced anyone into doing anything similar with their lives. *I* think humanitarian work like I did in Haiti and Lesotho is a fantastic way to spend one's life, but if you don't want to, it would be utterly immoral for me to force you to do so. What Ayn Rand seems to have hated most was the people who told people to sacrifice themselves and live in servitude solely for the "greater good".

It's in my rational self-interest to pursue a meaningful and rewarding existence (as I define such a thing), and if that means helping people, so be it. It would be foolish, however, to pursue a lifestyle that was neither rewarding nor meaningful because some guy told me to.
