“The essential characteristic of Western civilization that distinguishes it from the arrested and petrified civilizations of the East was and is its concern for freedom from the state. The history of the West, from the age of the Greek polis down to the present-day resistance to socialism, is essentially the history of the fight for liberty against the encroachments of the officeholders.”

  • Merry Christmas Linoge!

  • I hope everyone had a fine and merry Christmas. For my part, I gave my nephew the gift of BoreSnake, since he recently purchased an AR-platform rifle*. I also showed Ophelia (and examples of the 300 AAC Blackout cartridges on which she feeds) to several relatives, all of whom approved of her.

    * Shortly after arriving at my ancestral home on 23 December 2012, I showed Ophelia to my father. In the course of this showing, my father mentioned that my nephew had recently purchased an AR-platform rifle. The next day (24 December 2012), I decided to buy a BoreSnake for my nephew; fortunately, though the Friendly Local Gun Store was pretty much sold out of AR-specific items, it still had plenty of .22/.223 BoreSnakes in stock. As it turned out, even before my nephew opened the Christmas gift I had bought him (but after I had bought the BoreSnake), he told me that he needed to learn more about cleaning an AR-platform rifle…. 😉

    OK, where in the world did you find these? Very cool!
    Please include a link to the website so we can order some.

    Never mind, found them at http://www.lapolicegear.com/molle-deluxe-christmas-stocking.html, but they are out of stock. :(

  • @ Wing and a Whim: To you and Peter as well!

    @ Hoplophobic Healer: They look great on me ;).

    @ Robert: To you as well :).

    @ Oakenheart: Hope you had a good one!

    @ Groundhog: And a Merry Christmas to the burrow as well ;).

    @ AuricTech: Ah, the joys of actually cleaning ARs… those bloody lugs apparently work, but they leave something to be desired in the “maintenance” category…

    @ Lord Sega: Unfortunately, they invariably sell out at least a month before Christmas. I waited around until after the holidays last year to get some on sale, but missed out entirely, so I left a note for myself this year. I would recommend doing the same :).
