great article, definitely very thought provoking - interesting that your description of who snowden was in high school and who he ended up becoming is exactly what I thought when this whole story broke open - a spineless traitor...

My friend just purchased a "civilian" Colt CQBP Marine Pistol and all I can say is that thing is absolutely incredible to shoot! Im postponing my Resco Watch purchase and parting with a few of my firearms I never thought I would so I can try to get one. I dont know if there is anything different between the civilian and actual MARSOC issue pistol (there has been a ton of debate on this also) but this is one HELL of a 1911 and if you can get one at or around the suggested retail of around $2000 it is money very well spent! I just hope I can find a dealer that has or can get one and willing to leave it at that price range...

There are so many multi-tools out there - but Paul makes an excellent point - buy a multi-tool based on your needs... I have 2 Leatherman multi-tools that I absolutely love an OHT and a Juice that make my EDC, I also have a Smith & Wesson multi-tool that was my fathers that I love - but I have very basic every day handyman and amature armorers needs so any of these mentioned here would suit me well....

i finally got to shoot an mp5 a few weeks ago! we blew through 1000 rounds of ammo so fast! what an amazing carbine! I got a part time evening/weekend job at an awesome gun store/range - it will be so awesome to finally get the opportunity to shoot some damn cool firearms! the mp5 is sooo sweet and even in full auto it has very manageable recoil! the owner has an m249 saw - hope to shoot it this weekend!

Great article Jack - its a very thought provoking topic to say the least.  I still wonder if there was some sort of way there could have been something released to varify for the American Citizens that in fact they got him - I dunno something to solidify more closure?....

I was finally able to see this movie yesterday.   There wasn't a single solitary sound made as everyone exited the theater.  The entire audience sat, paused a few minutes before exiting.   I can't remember being so "moved" by a film as I was with this one BY FAR.  It's simply a movie you HAVE to go see - words cannot describe the way it will move you, you have to experience it!  So amazing - the perfect example true Honor, Valor, Respect and Dignity - could go on and on.  Such an amazing life story!

Another great post (like there have ever really been any bad ones) ;)  !!!  I want a Malinois so bad!  What a gorgeous dog Nero is!  The Malinois/Shepherd breeds have always been my favorite followed very closely by Husky/Malamute.  We had my sons Siberian Husky with us for 3 months.  She is such an amazing animal!  So intelligent and SO HYPER!  She would get me up every morning at 5:00am like clockwork to go out for her morning walk/run - I gotta admit I more than likely at times must have looked like the pic of obumer below  - she was so much fun!  I'll really  miss having her up on the mountain this winter!

@Virginstateofmind  @gipbmac Incredible words. I was pretty sure it was from The Declaration Of Independence - it has been too long since I have read it in its entirety - was great to read it again just now!  I am recommitting myself to read this and other important historical documents & books that are the foundation of our American heritage at least something every day even if it's just a few pages or chapters.

Excellent post Blake - thank you!  Honor, respect, integrity  - valuing and upholding oaths...  that is whats missing from our so called leaders in DC. They set the example and tone of attitude that floods into all branches of government and eventually to our military  - no wonder this country is so bassackwards.. we have a psychotic freak-show carnival from hell at the helm all drunk and gluttonous on their own pride and greed...DC needs a serious DOUCHE!... DC could use some good ol fashioned soldiers and boy scouts!!!  I mean no disrespect to anyone at all.. i try not to get too political but in these crazy times its too hard sometimes to keep a tight lip...

@Virginstateofmind  well said!...  really makes you think and I couldnt agree more...  our current "state of the union" is so freakin messed up - we have absolutely NO leadership or moral character in our White House and Congress is just about as bad.  The time is now for us the citizens to push harder than ever before to effect change, take a stand for whats right and to have courage to not budge one inch back regardless of the nasty storm that lies ahead...

Another excellent article Eric!  I couldnt agree more with this - really it seems life is just this - one challenge after another and just when you think you have topped out or finally completed the one at hand, 3, 4, 5 more line right up after it... no real time to stop and take a breather.  The patience piece is what I have the hardest time with LOL - I have no problem pushing through and holding course but it's when I learn to just let things go and come as they are supposed to (be patient) is when I find success - the next challenge...

Keep up the great work!  I paid with just my credit card last time if I remember right but if you guys decide to just run paypal exclusively I think I could live with it.  No offense to anyone here but I dont like paypal much at all and try not to use them when I can.  I have had a few horrible experiences and got burned both times and I was not the perp.  Once in a while with an online with an transaction the only way to pay is through them and if I REALLY need the item I will get it, but if there is an alternative to paypal I will always use it.  Hopefully I can just continue using my card with an auto-renew! ;)
