    Covid-19: Even if you are healthy and not sick. Please be considerate of the elderly and people with health conditions to not go around them because you could still be a carrier. Let's all work together to slow the spread of this virus and help us get through this sooner. If we all work together and just use common sense we can minimize this bug. Another thing. Our Country has plenty of supplies if people will just stop raiding the stores faster than they can get new supplies in. Stop panicking. We will get through this faster with calm heads and common sense.

    Headhunter got a reaction from ILSL Sheepdog for a status update, I just noticed that in the "About Me" section, I had said that I was moving to Montan   
    I just noticed that in the "About Me" section, I had said that I was moving to Montana, in the Spring.  That would have been last Spring, and I no longer have any intention of going there.  For better or worse, I'm in Illinois (probably for worse!).
     
    @Sheepdog, you asked me if I would be interested in the long range marksmanship/sniper unit, in our militia.  The answer is "yes", but understand that I am building my rifle from a 1929 "Ishie" Mosin-Nagant.  It's almost done (and I can't tell you how many people have asked me, "What is this thing?" ... it looks like a thoroughly modern rifle).  The most expensive part is to come ... the scope.  Using Winchester-Western ammo (185-gr), I'm pretty sure that I can knock a gnat off a tit at 2000 yards.  But that kind of merchandise doesn't come cheap.  Also, it's got to be solid to stand the recoil of this rifle.  Right now, I'm using iron sights.
     
    I was a sniper in Vietnam.  Because of the terrain, I don't think I had a longer shot than 75 yards.  But I hold (or held) several records at Ft. Bragg and Ft. Campbell, on the 2000 yard range (they may have changed to meters ... I don't know). 
     
    The first thing I would advise anyone to do is to get a "dope book", to record your shots and scope settings, and bring someone along to the range to be a spotter (they should have tripod-mounted field glasses).  Of course, this assumes that their rifle is already zeroed at 100 yards.
     
    All snipers operate in a team of two, the marksman and the spotter.  The spotter should be armed with a lighter, rapid-fire weapon, in case the enemy gets close.  Also, I can't emphasize enough the importance of hand signals.  This means that the team must be in each others' sight, at all times.
     
    Thanks for the invite, and I hope that I can contribute something to this effort.

    Hey, brother!
     
    Just a few minutes ago, I made a comment on Fox News, where they were talking about Beto O'Rourke's flip-flop on confiscation of AR-15s and AK-47's, last night.  This is what I said:
     
    "I don't even own one of these weapons.  I was a sniper, in Vietnam, and I've always favored large-bore, bolt-action rifles. But AR-15s and AK-47s are just the beginning.  Slippery Slope Syndrome will kick in and the Left will go for all of them.  I'm 70 and have had a good life. I haven't pulled a trigger on a human since 'Nam.  I just want to live in peace, and be left alone.
     
    However, DON'T come after my guns."

    Welcome, Jonathan!
     
    In case you're wondering about it, I would think of mymilitia as a clearing house for communications between independent militias in each of the 50 states.  Of course, to build a "national militia" would be illegal, because the government would consider that an illegal army.  But the Constitution allows for State Militias.  We come here to share ideas, frustrations and to make our own militias more effective in performing their duties, under the Constitution of the United States.
     
    I hope you enjoy the site, as much as I do.

    When looking at the map, I can see only one militia in West Virgina, the Cottonmouth Teams.  I don't know if there's more.  After a certain time, you might consider forming a militia, yourself.
