You treat me like I am a war chassis.

Hell, you have me doing it too.

Maybe we all are?

Mr. Platform


They are real enough.

This Stephens was one. There are more.

Hell, pick a place.

I don’t want to be a war chassis.

It pisses me off that is how I am thought of.

But I deal with it.



Pics of Steel Head and Armor

    • All re-usable.

Pass throughs of 22 rifle rounds, nothing exotic about the ammo.

Picked as much lead out of strike face as I could and am now reconditioning it for re-use. It will be as close to original specs as I can get it. I could replace strike face with new section easier. But I want reuse data. Yes it is wood. No I am not telling you the kind. This armor is top secret.

Ready to go again.


Platform Discipline

I knew I was neglecting my rifle platform training/practice compared to my pistol regimen.

I did it on purpose for two reasons.

1. I wanted to improve my pistol KSAs.

2. I wanted to see how my rifle KSAs fared. I suspected a drop off and it happened. It is important to Honestly critique yourself and to accept quality critique from others. It is also important to NEVER over estimate your skill.

Now I shall practice both platforms equally. If I was with shotgun, that too. But I don’t roll with a shot gun currently.



Looks like perfect weather for a range trip. Going if I get a slot. Steel Head may go back too. I am reconditioning him. He did well. He stopped what I figured he would. I knew my 22 rifle would rip him a new one in terms of penetration. But he is more than capable of being reused.

I may decide to just build armor today though. Based on yesterday’s tesults, I am really onto something in my combo Revere and Barbie armor. I have really improved the matrix.

If I go, and wind is down, I will line up some stuff and mow it down real fast.

I need to work on my rifle at home more. I have been focusing on pistols at home (Airsoft) and neglecting my rifle training. No I don’t shoot firearms at home, Airsoft and BBs.

But I tore my range down at home so BBs can’t be readily used. I am looking for Airsoft rifles that will mimick carbines. I have one in mind.

I noticed yesterday that I am not up to my standards with my rifle and that is because I have stopped drilling with it and almost exclusively been working with pistols.

Don’t misunderstand me, I am good with a rifle still. I just am not as good as I should be.

The techniques are way different in terms of grip and sight alignment, trigger Aint that different.
