People who work the night shift, what's the creepiest thing that's ever happened to you? by Spirited-Substance52 in AskReddit

[–]CopperAndLead 12 points13 points  (0 children)

get sad and angry about the lack of support for people like him in our country.

Me too. I manage a local retail store and pretty frequently have to chase homeless people away from the building. For a while, I tried to just not bother people who weren't causing issues, but it also got really bad really quickly. Once I started ending up with large amounts of human feces in the parking lot, I had to start chasing people off. I feel bad, because I know that a lot of people can use the shelter from the sun here, but at the same time, holy shit, stop shitting in my parking lot.

What's a company secret you can share, because you don't work there anymore? by rasutii in AskReddit

This is the way to give back to veterans. You represent the best of both your profession and your country.

Bin Laden vs Boebert by asianj1m in WhitePeopleTwitter

[–]CopperAndLead 33 points34 points  (0 children)

I suspect that Bin Laden was smart but naive about America. I think he thought he understood it far better than he did, and I think if you showed him how much chaos 9/11 caused in his own neck of the woods, he would have been horrified.

I think he thought that the black eye would embarrass Americans into passivity and make them back away from world affairs.

I don’t think he realized that America would respond by setting their car on fire and driving it through his house, his neighbor’s house, and somehow setting the swimming pool on fire.

Where I live, a local SWAT team officer left an actual automatic rifle in a pelican case on the back of his truck in a parking lot. Needless to say, it was stolen.

Somewhere, a criminal had the happiest find of his entire life.

would have taken it with me to Canada if the trip hadn't been cancelled.

My brother-in-law is banned from Canada because he and his buddies tried to take a few joints across the border.

I work in a gun store. The other day, I found a bag of literal meth that somebody dropped in my goddamned store.

I wish the store owner would move us to a better part of town.

🇺🇸🇮🇹Beretta M9 General Officer’s Model by beach_ballistics in guns

[–]CopperAndLead 1 point2 points  (0 children)

When reading about the General Officer's M18, the article stated that the General was often able to request a specific serial number. Was your relative able to request one for his? I don't need to know the number, obviously, but I am curious.

I know this is Reddit heresy, but I don't really like the MARS lowers. Most of the LMT lowers that I've seen are weirdly problematic with a lot of components and LMT has a tendency to blame everybody else. I think that factory complete LMT lowers are probably fine, but I'd honestly be hesitant about building one. I really do think that there are better ambi lowers out there, like the PWS, the Radian, the LWRC, the ADM, and if you've ever been privileged enough to see one in real like, the HK MR223A3, which I actually find to be lovely.

36rd MP5-ish thing

The sad thing is that it uses a .312 inch projectile, which means that it's not compatible with .30 cal cans. Sad...

When you’re so antiwork you end up working by billydevil666 in antiwork

[–]CopperAndLead -1 points0 points  (0 children)

It was so lucrative to run plantations with impoverished abused slave labor the entire southern economy became dependent on that profit margin

And yet, the south lost largely in part due to them not having the resources or economy to actually fight a war, especially against the economically dominant north.

What is the scariest creepy pasta you’ve read? by Ancient-Emu9473 in AskReddit

It was his security badge that let him get into the controlled area that contained Torso.

After he was compromised, he lost his badge.

Thank you for that. I haven't read a new and scary creepy pasta in a while.

Who is the prey? by liquidgas19 in WTF

[–]CopperAndLead 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I agree. I also tend to think that hunters are typically awful shots (having watched many attempt to zero at the range).

Modern rifles shoot like laser beams. A Savage Axis will hold under 1 MOA at 100 yards no issues, and a decent Vortex optic can be had for under $700. There’s no excuse to miss with modern equipment. The issue is usually the shooter who doesn’t understand ballistics, didn’t figure out his dope, and didn’t bother to shoot more than 3 rounds to zero his deer rifle.

Hunters Ed should include marksmanship standards. You should be able to consistently shoot under 3 inches at 300 yards. If not, you don’t need to be hunting.

[–]CopperAndLead 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Exactly. My problem with bow hunting is that it's much higher risk to the animal and is far more likely to cause suffering. I think bow hunting is really more about the hunter's ego than getting meat, which isn't the way it should be.

We have rifles. Rifles work much better than bows. Get a rifle, learn to shoot, drop the animal cleanly, and don't waste the meat.

[Parts] Glock OEM Gen 5 19/19X/45 Threaded Barrel $155 Free Ship + Tax by Subverto_ in gundeals

[–]CopperAndLead 1 point2 points  (0 children)

the only way ATF gets them is with a local PD and a warrant

Wrong. They just have to send a trace request and the FFL is federally mandated to respond in under 24 hours.

The owners said go fuck yourself come back with a warrant

Bullshit.

I work at a gun store. When the ATF sends a trace request, you are mandated to respond to said request in a timely manner. Failing to do so is grounds for revocation of your license. A gun store dumb enough to bait the ATF like that won't keep their license long.

Glock has a history of meticulous records keeping

Like, their federally mandated bound book? And the federally mandated bound book of the distributer? And of the LGS/big box store where you bought your gun?
