I happened to click on a Fox News story today about an Al Qaeda website that has published a hit list of some organizations. First off, fine, but if these guys could do some serious damage to anyone in the US, they would have already done it without needing a "hit list". So, here is the article, and here is the real point for the post:
This scope angle allows me to shoot back in time.
You have got to be freaking kidding me. Straight from the website where the threats are coming (no I did NOT go there, just the news article alone scared me into thinking they'd kick down my door for just typing it into Google), I bring you the shadetree jihadist. You see, I've been kind of looking around for a nice scope mount for my CETME. Maybe a nice Stanag, or heck I don't know I haven't even decided yet. I just want something pretty solid. Orrrrrr, I can go with the "flat piece of steel bent into a curve and somehow hooked into the receiver with the rear scope ring kind of angled over touching and the scope at a 20 degree angle from the barrel" mount. I know, I know. NEVER underestimate your enemy. I know, I really do. But it's hard not to think these guys are the freaking Keystone Cops of evildoers. And that's all for now.
