Preparedness Notes for Saturday – November 10, 2018

November 10th is remembered in the United States as the “birthday” of the U.S. Marine Corps. Coincidentally, the 10th is also the birthday of the late Mikhail Timofeyevich Kalashnikov, born in 1919, died December 23, 2013. He didn’t design a lot of different guns, but one of his few designs was the prototype for what turned out to be the world’s most widely produced assault rifles. Once an iconic symbol of international communism, the AK’s curved magazine profile has in more recent years become just a symbol of citizens being well-armed.

I do wish we could stop using the term “assault rifle”.
There is no such thing.
It is a “rifle”.

Anyone else notice that the rifles the Marines are carrying do not have the bolts in them. Things are really getting bad when we do not trust the US military with functional weapons.

These are ceremonial weapons at best, as much intended for Combat use as the Parade Dress accessories their officers carry on their belts.
