re: Pistol caliber carbines - Ace Midnight
[quote]I've never been crazy about PCCs just because if I'm gonna have something that big, I'd rather it shoot a rifle cartridge.[/quote] The only possible POU where one of these things make sense is a non-tactical officer carrying one of these things around, specifically one with some sort of op...

re: Most memorable "Special/Serious Episodes" from a sitcom - Ace Midnight
[quote]Radar telling the 4077th operating room the chopper carrying Henry Blake went down in the Sea Of Japan and there were no survivors..[/quote] The script was withheld until the very last minute. They had a rehearsal (IIRC) for the movement and the marks, but he didn't give the lines to Berg...

re: 9MM or .40 pistol recommendations - Ace Midnight
9mm. Skip the Sig P250. Either go with a P320 (polymer), a P226 (full size all metal) or P229 ("mid-sized" all metal). If you don't want a Sig, get a Glock 17 or Glock 19 - I'm not saying it's the be all, end all, but you simply cannot go wrong with those choices. I like Ruger weapons, gener...

re: John Glenn Dead at 95 - Ace Midnight
And then there were none. Symbolic of the WWII generation passing, the last of the Mercury 7 astronauts, John Glenn (however much I disagreed with him politically over the last 40+ years), was a legitimate, bona fide American hero. He was the oldest of the Mercury 7, the only Marine (3 were USAF...

re: Trump selects Hardee's/Carl's Jr. CEo as Labor Secretary - Ace Midnight
[quote] It really was Carl's Jr. that ran the White House.[/quote] That's not true. Brawndo Corporation ran almost everything in government. They bought the government so they could make their outrageous advertising claims. Carl's, Jr. had the kiosks that called the law on you for damaging t...

re: Don't pilots have tracking beacons on them now? - Ace Midnight
[quote] Lots of things can go wrong both before and after ejection that could cause issues with the beacon. [/quote] An ejection is about the most violent thing that can happen to a person, at least intentionally. It is worse than some hard landings and "soft" crashes, from a "trauma to the pi...

re: More effective: Binders vs. Dossiers? - Ace Midnight
Archer never reads his dossiers and often misplaces them. Everything just seems to work out. Binders full of women was a particularly effective attack against Romney. O has binders full of awesome LSU football future. My assessment? It's a wash right now. It's not the size of the binde...

re: For everyone on this board that believes Muslims haven't assimilated into the US - Ace Midnight
[quote]It's absolutely true they do this.[/quote] Fair enough - they ALSO do this. But, the implication in the OP is that education is somehow a panacea against radicalism. It isn't. If anything terrorist organizations are over-educated (and, again, heavily in the West) at the middle manager a...
