  1. the only handgun i would bank my life on is the one i had in my pocket at the time i needed it, which would only be a 1911, glock or hk usp tac, maybe a smith and wesson revolver. in any caliber that starts with a 4. to paraphrase the great jeff cooper... a pistol only used to fight your way back to your rifle. the first rule of gun fighting is to have a gun. preferably 2. and all your friends who have guns, and lots of ammo. if you can choose what you want to bring to a gun fight, make it a battle rifle and as many friends you have that have them.
  2. there is a used m82a1 on snipershide right now with cleaning kit, mags and goodies for like 7300. you can get the .50 single shot barretts for 3000 all day long at gun shows. while .50's are awesome, the barretts are only 4 minute guns. 2 moa gun, w/ 2 moa ammo. that is fine and good, but to use the gun and the round to its fullest, you must hand load. 4 moa at 2000 yards? thats like 80". that is a horrible group for precision. which is why im saving for a .408 chey tac. and getting the new rem. 700 p style .338 lapua mag. why does everyone on here like handguns and little sub machines? you need battle rifles people, battle rifles!

    Recession??

    yeah, betting the farm on gold isnt a good thing. you shouldnt put your eggs all in one basket. like i said, im not some rich mofo, but i am pretty satisfied at what i have accomplished by not being a typical spend thrift 20 something year old. i dont go ape shit over new iphones (they are cool though, arent they?) and try to not eat out or throw money away on things other than typical living expenses and anything i buy, i try to have it be something that will hold its value. living frugally i guess you could say. but i have some precious metals, cash and savings accounts, roth ira's that are invested in stocks, and a good amount of tangible things that will hold thier value or go up. im looking into opening a gold/precious metals ira with either fidelity or swiss america. swiss america literally holds your gold in bullion form in their vaults in switzerland. but i question how i will be getting to it if something happens. i wouldnt go out and dump all your money you have and sell everything to buy gold. i would probably and am gonna probably buy some silver this weekend, if i can scrape up a couple hundred bucks. but one thing is just about certain... no one ever went broke buying and holding gold. like you said, you might not be able to eat it, but gold has never lost its value. dawood... this is a pretty good article. it was written by what most would consider a crazy christian gold bug, but i like the guy. http://www.lewrockwell.com/north/north596.html

    Recession??

    in reguards to john galt's post... when society emerges after a collapse i have little doubt gold and silver will once again rise to the top of the monies list. i sympathize with the idea that you cant eat gold but i reject it. im a saver by nature. i see myself as pretty prepared for most things. atleast money wise. im hardly rich, but i do have atleast 6 months back up cash. im pretty close to having a 20% down payment on a house and that is in addition to other things like IRAS, gold, silver, blah blah. i have atleast enough food for me and my wife for 6 months or 3 months if my family or a couple friends had to move in with me if SHTF. but this is the advantage of gold. it is a highly portable means of wealth. it always has been money and probably always will be seen as wealth. its so engrained in our culture. when something is the best you say it is the 'gold standard.' it has never lost purchasing power. in the 20's a 20$ gold peice (1 oz) would buy you a top of the line suit or a good quality handgun. and it still will today but you have to transfer the gold into cash to use it because those idiots in DC made using gold as currency illegal. but more realistically, gold is simply an inflation hedge. i wouldnt put all your money into it, after all during a recession or depression... cash is king. just make sure you have some on hand all the time. dont rule out bank runs... they are totally real possibilities.

    Recession??

    gold is through the roof right now bro... i bought about 2 ounces back when it was about 650$ an ounce. yesterday gold was around 915$ an ounce. the last kruggerand i got a couple months ago, was 770$ an ounce. i think if you buy it now, buy on the dips, say wait till it falls back to like 880$. then the question comes forth... but is it going to dip. it probably will, but it might not stop or dip on its way to 1500$ an ounce. i really wish i would of backed the truck up at 650$ an ounce. eh, hindsight is 20/20. but i think silver is still relatively low. i only have 1 oz coins because im an idiot, but the safest and best way to invest in silver is in pre 1964 quarters and dimes. if you like ebay, go on there and search for 'junk silver' people always have lots. and plus being old US coins are still recognizable as regular money. i always read about these assholes who found 5 gallon buckets at relatives farms after they pass away full of coins from the 40's and 50's. they just found themselves a small fortune. as for buying the stuff.... apmex.com is a huge online gold dealer and the only real dealer with a shopping cart function. other than that, i usually use ebay to eliminate the small commissions on the coins from dealers.

    Recession??

    i hear you, i'll take the money. any money i can get back that they stole from me... i'll take it. however it is sort of funny... giving back tax money, when we are in trillions and trillions of dollars in debt, all the while increasing spending on EVERYTHING. then they are inflating money. borrowing 2 billion dollars a day from china. its f'ing rediculous. giving back tax money would make awesome sense if departments were abolished, welfare, offensive military spending was ended... but who are they to make any sense.

    Recession??

    inflation will be exploding with this relief plans they are talking about. the fed just cut rates again, which is code for 'dood we just printed a shit load of money....' all this crap is like fighting the laws of gravity. you might be able to post pone symptons of economic collapse of our paper money system, but things could get bad. i think the depression that is coming is gonna be way worse than the collapse of 1929

    Recession??

    there are two things you need to know about money. work and save. i believe that one day the FED's chickens will be coming home to roost and therefore i have been investing in tangibles, gold, silver, firearms, and am saving for land.
  9. speaking of montana, tell me why the hacker guy who lived in baltimore in live free and die hard had a fucking rack of montana in his 'command center?'
  10. not to back peddle, but there is a muscle milk secret. dont get it at GNC. they are like 10 bucks for a 4 pack there. if there is a safeway near you, go there. they are 6.99 for 4, but they have them on sale for buy one get one free. i buy them all when they are on sale, then go to the front the next day and get a rain check. im set for like 6 months in a couple trips and you save $$. i dont fool with the powder, it doesnt taste as good as the premixed chocolate.
  11. fear of being caught? hmmmmm isnt the consequence of being caught (why you get scared) put forth by law? i dont believe in anarchy.
  12. i agree with you on the drug use. on a federal level. there is no constitutional grounds to ban or allow drug use nationwide. its a state issue. but i believe laws are deterrents. we dont live in a democracy. there is a big difference between a democracy and a republic. our country was created to protect against the dangers of mass democracy. check it... "[D]emocracy will soon degenerate into an anarchy, such an anarchy that every man will do what is right in his own eyes and no man's life or property or reputation or liberty will be secure, and every one of these will soon mould itself into a system of subordination of all the moral virtues and intellectual abilities, all the powers of wealth, beauty, wit and science, to the wanton pleasures, the capricious will, and the execrable cruelty of one or a very few." Reference: Original Intent, Barton (338); original The Papers of John Adams, Taylor, ed., vol. 1 (83) "Remember democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There never was a democracy yet that did not commit suicide." Reference: Original Intent, Barton (335); original The Works of John Adams, C.F. Adams, ed., vol. 6 (484) "The known propensity of a democracy is to licentiousness which the ambitious call, and ignorant believe to be liberty." Reference: The Works of Fisher Ames, W.B. Allen, ed., vol. 1 (546) "[D]emocracies have ever been spectacles of turbulence and contention; have ever been found incompatible with personal security, or the rights of property; and have, in general, been as short in their lives as they have been violent in their deaths." Reference: Madison, Federalist No. 10 (81) "A democracy is nothing more than mob rule, where fifty-one percent of the people may take away the rights of the other forty-nine. " Thomas Jefferson "Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote! " --Benjamin Franklin
  13. i did respond to it. i'll repost it. QUOTE (yum - Mar 5 2006, 03:58 AM) my god thats so funny that you just posted a bunch of pictures of black people holding the confederate flag. wow. seriously what are those photos meant to prove? if you read what i was responding too... "southern man... listen what your good book says..." is from a neil young song talking about "those evil racist southerners." so i was responding with the WHOLE story.
  14. Quoted post [/b] never heard of a conservative democrat before?
  15. if you read what i was responding too... "southern man... listen what your good book says..." is from a neil young song talking about "those evil racist southerners." so i was responding with the WHOLE story.
  16. definately getting off topic... but another thing to note is..... some neo conservatives get offended by the term. they believe it is synomous with "jew" when used by "traitor" conservatives. of course this stems from the old right america firster paleo cons or true conservatives who are against all foreign alliances, no exceptions even for israel.
  17. allow me to break it down in simple easy to understand terms. a neo conservative is not a conservative. they are ex communists and 60s liberals who rode the reagan revolution into power. many neo cons do expouse social conservatism, (mainly to win the votes of the nations middle class conservative core) however many do not. one of the key differences between conservatives and neo conservatives is foreign policy. conservatives favor america first and an non interventionist foreign policy. neo cons believe in global democracy and a crusade to secure it. this is liberalism as embodied by Woodrow Wilson. why i call neo cons, liberals is simple. they believe in the federal state. conservatives do not. this is the basic core of each ideology. liberalism is belief in a strong central government and wanting citizens to rely on it. conservatives believe in small, decentralized government, and local control and individualism. decentralization, the principles espoused in the VA and KY resolutions penned by James Madison and Thomas Jefferson are held with as much esteem as the constitution and declaration. conservatives also believe in strict construction of the federal constitution. neo cons do not. they pretend they do, but they do not. it is against thier agenda of big government, deficits, and imperial foreign wars. neoconservatism is not conservatism. it is a form of liberalism.
  18. obviously, im referring to the guy who wrote the article. im saying this because that is what the author of the article is. if someone on the right wrote something like that baiting the left, he would damn near be indicted for violation of federal hate crime laws. i wonder if the author knows what a "neo con" is? and if he really hates them. after all a neo con is a liberal.
  19. wow... what an uninformed, hateful, bigoted ass fuck.
  20. "what? So If someone rapes and kills your daughter what do you do with him?" DING DING DING!!!!!! EXACTLY!
  21. those damn southern racists......
  22. eh, not a good analogy. i cant think of many british who fought for the nazi's. let me rephrase "an assload of indians, mainly cherokee and others of the 5 civilized tribes fought for the confederacy. and the war, as we all know was all about slavery and the northern good ol boys swooped down to save the day!" and those damn racist rednecks )with those jews in the CSA government) and those damn 100,000's of blacks who fought for and aided the confederacy. its so black and white! sorry. but back to abortion.....
  23. I don't think using property rights is a good analogy esp since land is this country was stolen from Indian nations... and I wouldn't compare cells inside a body to an imaginary line around a piece of soil Quoted post [/b] its kind of funny when you think about it. the indians fought for the confederacy during the war between the states. what a twisted web isnt it?
  24. i disagree. every one is endowed with "certain inalienable" rights, among them life liberty and the pursuit of happiness. governments are not to violate these rights, and were created to protect them. just as important for the government to establish what rights we have, is the right to establish which of us has those rights. enter the sovereign state governments, under the system known as federalism. abortion is a very very dangerous form of tyranny. the government simply decides a certain class of people are not people, therefore not entitled to rights. the right to kill someone (abortion) is protected the same damn way slave owners property (slaves) was protected in antebellum america. if a class or race of people was enslaved or mass murdered, it would be an outrage. nazi germany sent millions of people to thier deaths. in america, the government is allowing the people to practice a program of mass murder. the argument boils down to private property. the pro abortion side goes like..."the baby is mine, in my body, my property, i can kill it if i want." with this logic, anyone who steps on foot of your property can be killed, even if they are delivering the mail.
