  1. You’re gonna have a tough row to hoe trying to sell that to GA when the vast majority of commercial airplanes don’t have TCAS once you leave the major wide bodies. Given the number of flights to the number of incidents, it’s really not a priority.
  2. Prolly. Or the Otter was landing and the beaver accelerated into the path of the Otter, as you have extremely limited visibility below and behind you, so a plane accelerating can stay in your blind spot or move into it without your ability to see it.
  3. A long fight doesn’t help the situation. If you can’t move and fight them in a short period conflict, drawing it out will not make it better. The problem is they lack the logistical capability to move troops and supply them for even a short period fight. Which is why they can’t take even take back islands just off their coast.
  4. They don’t have the logistics to move, support or fight 1/2 their number. People get all fixated on the number they claim to field, yet overlook that they can’t move to battle or feed more than a fraction of their forces. Logistics is king.
  5. I can (and have) shoot my BO and 6.8 to 500 yards. I don’t know how much more range you really need?
  6. The only problem is the issues you’re combating (recoil, and overall weight) can’t really be effectively negated. Even with a good brake, the 308 and 6.5 are demonstrably slower than my 6.8 and 300 BO. 6.5 Creedmoor will always kick more than the comparable 6.5 Grendel, 6.8 SPC, 300 BO, 224 V, 5.56. And, like 308, doesn’t add much. There are some theoretical advantages to a caliber like 6.5. But the truth is they’re not born out in reality.
  7. I don’t know, side by side they’re quite a bit heavier. I have a bit of an addiction to MK-12 Mod 0 clone rifles. I think I own 4 (6.8, 5.56, 300, and 7.62x51) The 7.62 is considerably heavier, and slower on follow up shots than any of the others.
  8. Spent many hours crawling around her while I was in Norfolk for school. Dodged over the chains and took myself on quite a tour once too. Everyone should have that opportunity.
  9. easier, less risky, more fun and will probably give me more time with my family while the kids are young. Ego be damned, you only get one chance with the kids to be kids. I dont have kids, so I get to be the selfish guy, but don’t be the rich old guy regretting trading time with his kids for money in excess of what he needed. Just my opinion.
  10. Eww. Hard pass DC sucks balls at decent comic book movies.
  11. Except these laws have already lost. The battle occured, we did not win. It is highly unlikely that the SC will rehear a settled case.
  12. Those laws have already been tried, taken to the Supreme Court and beaten. Severl states have “firearm freedom act” laws enacted.
  13. I’d fly on it. They havent made a plane yet that pilots incorrectly responding to an emergency won’t crash. That was the case with Lion Air, pilots did not properly respond to an emergency. I suspect it will likely be the cause here too.
