I wouldn't personally go out and buy a full set of cryes because I tend to run in jeans and a shirt, rarely using a uniform. Boots on the other had, you wanna splurge on boots because bad ones will make you miserable
Yeah. Sure you can hit up a soldier to use as a proxy to buy patagonia gear, but are you really gonna get your money's worth. Also what's up with those cucks at patagonia not wanting to sell to civilians? lol
When people are like "if you like guns so much why don't you just join the military you pussy" and go into shock, frothing at the mouth if I reply: I've got respect for soldiers, but fuck the military. I'm not up for being the government's sword.
Growing up, I always wanted to join. I really liked the idea, and it took literally getting run over by a truck to knock some sense into me. My dad would always tell me that he had the highest respect for soldiers, but not to join because the people running the show weren't trustworthy.
I'm not condoning aliengear holsters as they're trash and have caused people to ventilate their own legs, but this article by them seems to give a decent rundown of the generations.
Optics is a massive topic. As for rounds:
308 is good out to 1000 yards and readily available
6.5 creedmoor is good well past 1k and with a competent marksman, can reach a mile. It's fairly available but not as much as 308.
300 win mag will go well past 1k and is accessible but you'll only shoot it twice before saying fuck this my shoulder hurts.
For optics, you'll want something quality, possibly more expensive than your rifle. You won't use a thing higher than around 15 power, even shooting at a mile, because the mirage will fuck you up if you zoom in that close.
Vortex, Leopold, Nightforce, schmidt and bender, and kahles are all pretty good, vortex being the only budget option out of the bunch. If you're on a tight budget, probably the vortex diamondback tactical
1. Find out where your caliber will hit at 25 yards with a 100 yard zero
2. Bore sight it at 25 yards and fire one round
3. Shoot one round at 100 yards
4. Hold your rifle still with sandbags or whatever and adjust your scope to center over where your last round hit

@Tagout1221 my advice is to get a 12-18” fighting rifle (like a solgw, Sionics, bcm) and a decent LPVO, like a 1-6 razor, 1-8 Trijicon, etc. Run 77gr match ammo, and you’ll have a 600m gun all day that’s still a fighting rifle.
My first line of defense is avoiding confrontation. No one gets too close to me, and if someone's acting aggressively, I've got pepper spray in my hand, shaking it right there in front of them. It doesn't need to be shaken, but I've yet to come across someone who wants to get any closer to me when they see it.
Lmao yeah no spring assist knives allowed. In Canada you actually cant carry anything with the purpose of self defence if you carry a knife you have to tell the police officer it's a work knife or something like that same with pepper spray you can only carry bear and dog mace for defence against wildlife and that can be subject to interpretation lol a good lawyer will tell you to keep a bat and a glove and a ball in your car so you have a reason to be driving with one if you use it in a self defence situation. Same thing applies in your home and at all times force can only be met with equal force and you are to retreat into your home until you a cornered and then you might be able to use lethal force but be prepared for a lengthy court process and possible bankruptcy unless you plea bargain and accept a lesser charge to get out of manslaughter or murder lol
Handling a violent criminal is one thing, most of them are pussies when by themselves. Mob mentality though...
Having worked in both a county jail and a state prison, oc spray is hardly a deterrent when you walk into the dormitories. Never let someone get behind you. I’ve seen jailers get their asses beat numerous times. Best thing to do is de-escalate. But NEVER, EVER show fear. We had them clean their dormitories, I made sure they did the floors to the point they were smooth as a baby’s ass for the sole reason it would be easier to trip or dip them.
Good times, but the pay is shit. Definitely taught me a lot about their behaviors. To me that’s become a take-home skill. You’d be surprised how often it comes in handy when dealing with people in security. Also a great thing to have if you’re planning on going into security. Another letterhead stepping stone/competitive bargaining chip if you can pitch it right.
Out of all the shit I’ve been sprayed with, defense solutions was the worst. Followed by fox, and then freeze +p. Not gonna brag, but that 2% fox stuff isn’t bad once you have some idea what it feels like. Don’t get me wrong, it makes taking someone to the ground harder, but to me it brought out additional strength. I guess through desperation/panic, but I felt it was precise given the circumstances.
Also another tolerance to take home considering they’ve got those big ass OC foggers now.

Obviously there’s some times where your hands are tied and you gotta enforce jail policy and rules at which point you take every jailer in there with OC spray and you’re basically done.
The aftermath is the shitty part because then they hate you, are gonna be pulling shit, and it usually ends about a month or two later.
Prison is a totally uncontrollable animal.
Outside of shake downs and breaking up fights, they can pretty much do whatever the fuck they want.
There’s ways to enforce policy rather than having a shouting match though.
Female dorm refuses to wear their shirts for some reason, drop the temp to 46 for a few hours.
Won’t stop running around the pods at 3 am, keeping the other inmates trying to sleep awake?
Black that place out and turn off the night lights.
Taking a shower when they’re not supposed to (rape liability)? Turn the water off and let them walk around for a few hours covered in suds.
Most of them are just drug addicts. Even the biggest assholes in jail usually get over the fact they got caught and warm up to you. Besides, most of them are revocation dudes who do 90 days and get out.
Fuck the sex offenders and gangbangers though
I toured a prison once growing up, it was pretty interesting. The lower security areas were sorta like dormitories, a circular room surrounded by a couple levels of doors, some tables in the middle, and a circular desk with a single guard near the center. They said they only kept one guy in there to minimize risk, and the prisoners knew they could overwhelm the block if anything happened.
The high security area was way dinguer. Gray concrete, single person cells, a shower room where they'd be hosed down for 30 seconds by a guard through the bars, and a little plexiglas box they'd let a few of them wander around for a few minutes.
The illegal immigrants got the best treatment. They had a nice little area with wooden doors and locks that the prisoners could operate. They claimed they wanted to leave a good impression so they'd come back legally, but it was just a revolving door of the same people who were back in a month after being deported.
That sounds fucking awful lmao. Was the desk walled in with reinforced glass or something?
The jail I worked at was more of an open barracks. Even the sex offender dormitory was open, but had individual cells they were supposed to be in 10pm to 6am.
The prison had the same but gang members and sex offenders had their own cells and a dorm area they had 2 one hour times in a day with multiple inmates going out around the same time. New people in the control tower were why crazy shit went down, cause at first you don’t know who’s got beef with each other.
We occasionally had high security people. FBI would come in and out and pull them to a CID room. Usually murderers. Then after sentencing they’d get put in isolation for a bit and then release to general population. When FBI did come in, a lot of the cameras would go dark so as to protect their identities. Were usually escorted to and fro by state police or a jail admin. Looking at some you’d never expect them to be feds lol.
Well that was interesting. I placed an order with forward control designs at like 9pm and they had it shipped at 3am from california. I didn't know california had post offices open that late, 1am their time
