Would you like to buy it? Chuck smiled and said, "Yes, I like the idea of owning an American-designed rifle. Lee-Enfields are British. He was a naturalized American citizen, and that's where he became a gun designer. The rifle's round magazine, which could be rapidly reloaded with 5-round stripper clips or "chargers" in the British Commonwealth shooting lexicon was a nice plus. He would have preferred a more modern SMLE chambered in 7. Chuck noticed that the ammo they were using was the later vintage noncorrosively primed ammunition made in Greece in the s, with an HXP head stamp.
He would have given anything for some more-recently manufacture3d American-made Federal brand. Having once used that ammunition, he had been able to put two-round groups from a cold barrel into the same hole on paper at one hundred yards, from a well-cleaned, cut and recrowned barrel.
The rifle was a No. As was typical of spotters, the forward portion of the hand guard wood had been removed, and the remaining hand guard tapered and rounded at the tip. Seeing this made Chuck cringe, as he hated to see original military rifles altered.
However, he was glad to see that the sporterizing had at least been done neatly and that the scope mount and scope had been expertly installed. I've got zero rounds! This ain't the wide-open prairie. You should have bought a. In his visit to Indonesia in , President Obama announced the gift of twenty-four former USAF Fs - multirole fighter aircraft - as a sign of friendship to the Muslim world. The gift was building on his first inaugural address, in which he said of other hostile nations, "We will extend a hand if you will just unclench your fist.
This increased their fleet of Sus to twenty-nine planes. The first thing Rhiannon said when she saw her sister was "Uggggh. You got old. At least you never got fat, and I got skinny and stayed that way.
And we all have our health. Yes, God is good. Chuck Nolan, I have a big fat question for you. I went to Sunday school and all the usual - " Ava cocked her head and interrupted, "Yes, but do you know Jesus the Christ as your personal savior? I really would't know where to start. I suggest you start by reading the Gospel of John - he depicts Jesus' work to solve man's biggest problem very plainly. See if that speaks to you. And if it does, then ask Jesus into your heart.
I need your phone number," Chuck protested. Ava pulled out a pen and wrote on the back of their lunch receipt. I would like you to ring me up, Chuck.
But before you do, I'd really like you to be able to tell me, with sincerity, where you stand with God. A camera safari is not a real safari. For example, they used the Afrikaans word braai instead of "barbecue," the Shona word chirairo for "dinner," and the Swahili words karibu for "welcome" and samahani to say "excuse me.

But this book Could have been a 3 or even 4 star book, but the characters were totally one-dimensional and bad and the constant attempts to push religion on the reader comp I loved Patriots, and Founders was good. Could have been a 3 or even 4 star book, but the characters were totally one-dimensional and bad and the constant attempts to push religion on the reader completely kill it.
The beginning was so thick with evangelical christian BS I could scarcely believe it. Obviously Rawles has either been emboldened by his previous novels successes to push his ideals on the reader or at least narrow his readership or he's gone of the deep end further than he was when he wrote his first novel. The force-feeding of his idea of Christianity did better after the first few chapters but it returned frequently throughout the book.
Not to mention his characters completely sucked and he kept taking jabs those who didn't agree with his "character's opinions" most likely reflective of his own.
I'm debating whether to even bother trying his next novel after this farce. Feb 24, Doreen Pettit rated it did not like it. Oct 21, Billy Roper rated it liked it.
I read apocalyptic fiction to see how others envision the coming balkanization. Rawles' novels read like clickbait ad stories with embedded reviews for name-brand prepper merch every paragraph. Jan 21, K Shirey rated it it was amazing. Each one of the books in this series is filled with info one might need if the SHTF.
Preparing for disasters, learning skills in order to be self sufficient and faith are all critical components of the SHTF survivors toolbox.
