    1 Samuel 17:4
    "And there went out a champion out of the camp of the Philistines, named Goliath, of Gath, whose height was six cubits and a span."

    Are We really afraid of this Goliath (the media, the rioting, the looting, the evil ones, who have highjacked, and perverted our legitimate forms of government)? He thinks he's too big to fail. I'd rather lay in a pool of my own blood, fighting for what's right, than cowering, and waiting for the day they come for my loved ones. I'm sure there's more good men and women out there, with some semblance of humanity left, than there are this riff Raff I've seen on our streets. We didn't ask for this fight. It was thrusted in our laps. The days of being complacent are over. The days of riding the fence are over. Communism never goes easy in the night, and what we're seeing is the death throws of communism in this country.
    "THESE are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives everything its value. Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods; and it would be strange indeed if so celestial an article as FREEDOM should not be highly rated." – Thomas Paine

    Yep, don’t rush it ... a week of picking ‘em off a few here and there from the “tree line” or such would be my choice. First day or two they’d be like “WTF” ... after that every snap of a twig, movement of a shadow and such would make them jump and some need to change the drawers. I’d also add a firearm ain’t the only way either ...

    Laughable training? Yes... But they are training... Are you? They can muster hundreds. Are they SEAL Team 6? No... Can you must even a tenth of their number in capable bodies? I can't...

    That scares me...

    I am just guessing here, but while they may be training we are having much better evenings with our wives. Who’s going to perform better in battle? A happy wife, or a wife that has had to wear a mask in her living room and dry fire? Then again I am an optimistic guy.

    Good point. I am such a dork. I could easily have an AR BIATCH in my basement without my wife and kids ever knowing a thing. Where have I gone wrong?

    What they might have, incrementally, in training, sort of, they totally lack in judgement.

    What is a good thermal to use in such endeavors? I would not mind getting one.

    A person like myself. A widower with little close family and has members who have had enough. I have been pushed around since kindergarten. Time may well have come for my f'n turn. It looks to cost a lot less to get out and confront these pricks. Show up in my neighborhood. The adrenaline will keep me awake. I might say I may be the most dangerous gut in the hood.

    When I was a bartender back in the 1980's I would say " the last guy you want to mess with is the quiet guy at the end of the bar. Piss him off and the only blood seen will not be his".

    Come on and get some with your .22 long rifle with no sights. Might be tough sledding for you.

    Pretty impressive group. I imagine two Heuys with mini guns could take most of them out in a minute or two.

    While the vid is labeled "Weapons Training" ~ Women, I consider it "Foreplay."

    Someone what to check the porn sites for "Weapons Training" with a "One Eyed Wonder Worm."

    It's not efficient or remotely practical to "Train(?)" hundreds of followers "One by One" ~ "One on One."

    No structure, at all.

    Yes I take his rhetoric serious and if this is "The Grand Masters" training style and if he pushes his followers into a "Bang Bang" situation he's going to get many of them killed.

    Someone raised the question of how are they funded?

    I bet Goros is loosely connected as well as some of his Shell Organizations.

    The following was on Masters play list and lends insight to his thought process;




    Then, flip side we have this.
    Of which ( by the way ) I don't believe they, Redneck Revolt, are burning buildings or Shaking people down for money,, Yet(?).




    Serious , focused training;

    John, I think there is an aspect in this and another thread you've overlooked. Intimidation. The who and why of it. It might not intimidate you, or anyone on this board. But we are not the audience. Soccer moms and families with kids were. And I imagine a lot of them were plenty intimidated.

    Take a look at the difference in who the two armed groups are presenting themselves too. Groups on the right are going after local and state Gov. Groups on the left are going after the public.

    An insurgency requires either the support of the public or the public to fear them in order to fully operate. They currently have neither. But it looks like they are putting their hope in instilling enough fear to push their agenda into the open. Most of these groups are of some Marxist bent. They don't really have to communicate or work together just yet. They all know which direction they are headed though. And this falls right in line with many other Marxist attempts at power grabs. Scare the public into submission.

    While 22LR will hurt your feelings, I really Hope he got a Deal on bulk Thunderbolt.

    Remington Thunderbolt.jpg



    I didn't see that and didn't watch very much of his, message?

    My point, good catch and that goes toward Mr. Masters ( Grand ) "Mindset" & prep which would be "Piss Poor."
    I wonder if he has a dead brother, Jim;
    Jim Jones.jpg


    In the conventional sense, I don't see it happening.

    Outside of the reason~s of "US" or "WE" have lives & responsibilities I don't see it.

    In general I don't see it for the primary reason,Class Warfare.

    While "WE" own firearms there are those of us that don't own the latest & greatest, coupled with the fact that many of us don't own a $1,000.00 Optic and, so on, that we not as serious as those with disposable income to purchase the latest "Thing" , etc.

    There is a LOT of honest confusion and interest in getting one's rifle shooting good / excellent and the confusion Definitely comes into play when a lower skilled shooter inquires about which rifle or scope to buy under the premise of "Long Range Shooting."

    In a situation where an "Armed Mob" are arriving to do mayhem, what one needs is a reliable rifle (shoots well ) with iron Sights ( ideal ) and / or a Second Focal Plane scope of medium power, 100 ~ 300 yds, or more but definitely being at ease and confidence to call and place a shot close.

    A scope should HOLD Zero and learn to use the reticle for Holds.
    Using a Second or First Focal Plane, set it at one power and learn the reticle.
    A parallax adjustment is not needed, stay behind the optics center.
    If the scope fails have the tool needed to remove it.

    Don't have Iron Sights and your scope fails? Sight down the barrel, better than nothing.

    One would also want to"Know your Rifle" and be able to "RANGE" well, with or without assistance of a device.

    SO,
    Concerning organizing a group?

    IMHO I don't see it in a conventional sense but I can see it if an event or close chain of events occurred that everyone recognizes as "Not Good."

    What would such an event be?
    I don't know however, with one situation last fall, when the "Ds" were talking about removing Trump & Pence at the same time would have been one such situation.

    Installing Pelosi as "POTUS" would be "spontaneous combustion" for organization and warranted a "Road Trip."

    Fully agree.

    Staying ontop of ones situational awareness and avoiding such conflict has to this point, stopped a flash in the pan. But at some point, its going to flash.

    Didn't see your earlier post. As for what more do I want.... How about thinking for more than two nano seconds before posting something like that about a person's deceased wife or husband?

    Comes under the category of "don't be that guy".

    Looking at this after really thinking it reminds me of the “Ghost Army” of WWII ... plywood and inflatable decoy aircraft, artillery and other equipment were used to deceive the enemy. At Stone Mountain it seems they had some more “experienced” people upfront and doing the interactions but many of those in the background were there to give an appearance of a far greater force. They “dressed up” enough people and taught them some steps that at a first and at distance the average person would see a huge force. After the “intel” photos were analyzed the little things started to be seen but still the MSM and average person still see a huge “organized” group and are taken back ... which is what they want.

    While I love the Ghost Army story, and always speak for a few minutes on the subject (understanding that ALL of WW2 is about 3.5 days/5.5~ hours in my class, a few minutes on this is a lot of time), there is a huge difference between that and what we've seen here.
    Difference is that even though these people arent trained (didnt many say recently, about the St. Louis folks, that 'sure, they dont have training, but theyre doing something!"???), but they can still harm people. Those balloons were harmless, truly. They were a trick in the strategy, mind games. And effective. But they couldnt harm the enemy.
    Here, these folks CAN harm folks.

    Do not underestimate an untrained person with a gun. Even a .22. They're deadly, can cause much harm and pain.

    It’s pretty nice they went all out at Stone Mountain with gothic dress and ARs. The people in the park or trying to get out had a good encounter with the Biden Team future. Lots of those will be liberal suburban voters. They got a look at their future in Georgia. Like I keep stating- they are alienating the largest voting group who fear the loss of their middle class status. This is why MSNBC and CNN has turned completely from the riots and deaths for weeks and drummed up the Bat Soup Flu again. The criminal acts are undermining the party objectives.

    That's a great way way to think about it. Agreed. This group was mostly a joke and farcical with their borderline Black Israelite rhetoric, but it says something to be able to muster that group (in a community that is 85% black, we should remember).

    Wouldn’t surprise me if those folks dressed up in black weren’t paid protesters. Even if they weren’t I don’t think it would be hard to get a group like that together. It’s not like they were worried about losing their jobs, looking bad in the media, or getting in trouble.

    I do believe it would be harder to get a group of working class white/black guys together because they know the media would have the country freaking out about it. In turn they’d be doxed and probably end up in financial trouble if not legal trouble if something went sideways. I am 100% sure that the media would spin it to make them look like the aggressor and the group at fault no matter the situation.

    The media did try to make the Richmond 2nd A folks look bad, but it was too clean of an event for them to make it look bad. So I dont know if "we" wont show up when we need to, I think we have. in force, armed. It just need sto be something other than a publicity stunt like this one.

    I think they was a video of the “leader” talking to someone about money and getting paid , then he put his finger over his mouth and said something to the effect “We live “.

    That says a lot about their loyalty to their cause. It implies that the only loyalty they have is to little pieces of green paper (cloth) that have pictures of dead White men on them.
