ISIS holds caliphate-wide safety stand-down after botched NYC terror attack – Duffel Blog

SYRIA — ISIS is initiating a caliphate-wide safety stand-down after one of its members injured himself on Monday with his own explosive device in New York City, sources confirmed today.
“This is a chance for us to stop operations and come together as a family to figure out what we are doing wrong,” said Akbar Muhammad, Director of Standardization and Training for ISIS.
What should have been a routine operation on Monday to maim innocent civilians instead turned into another embarrassing stain on the caliphate’s already sullied reputation.
Akayed Ullah’s failed attempt resulted in zero casualties while injuring himself in the process and only moderately disrupting the morning commute in Manhattan. This blunder comes on the heels of recent dismal performances such as ISIS’ eradication from Mosul and the Iraqi Army claiming complete victory over the Islamic State.
It also happened just days after a command climate survey was leaked, which showed plummeting morale among junior jihadists. “They barely want to blow themselves up anymore,” said one ISIS commander.
According to sources, ISIS will cease all operations during its safety stand-down and require all members to call into a telephone conference line or watch the presentation over Skype. Officials have allotted about one hour for callers to yell at each other while telling each other to mute their microphones, as others ask “can you hear me?” before the conference begins.
Over an entire day of classes, ISIS members will be reminded to conduct a full safety check on their vehicle bombs and make sure their detonators are always placed on safe until they intend to set things on fire. Another class will broach the controversial topic of suicidal ideation among jihadists, while encouraging them to seek help at ISIS’ state-of-the-art mental health/suicide vest assembly facility.
Commanders are also using the time to talk about other important topics for junior jihadists, to include anti-money laundering training and operational risk maximization training.

Sig Sauer to Offer Commercial Version of Army's New Sidearm

Sig Sauer, the maker of the U.S. Army’s Modular Handgun System, intends to sell a special, commercial version of the full-size MHS 9mm pistol.
“We are planning to do a limited release of about 5,000 of the Army variant of the M17 for the commercial market,” Tom Taylor, Sig Sauer’s chief marketing officer and executive vice president for commercial sales, told “The timing is not finalized yet, but it looks to be late spring.”

The Army awarded Sig Sauer the MHS contract worth up to $580 million in January. The service launched its long-awaited MHS competition in late August 2015 to replace its Cold War-era M9 9mm pistol.
The selection of Sig Sauer formally ended Beretta’s 30-year hold on the Army’s sidearm market.

The 10-year agreement calls for Sig to supply the Army with full-size XM17 and compact XM18 versions of its 9mm pistol. The pistols will become the M17 and M18 after they are type-classified.
Each commercial MHS will be serialized and have serialized matching coin as well as a letter of authenticity from the CEO of Sig Sauer, Taylor said.
Sig Sauer would likely be able to sell more than 5,000 of these pistols, but Taylor said, “we just wanted to make it really special. … And once they are out there, the owners will be privileged to own the actual gun.”
The commercial version will be almost identical to the Army-issue, full-size MHS, except it will not have the anti-tamper mechanism for the striker action, nor will it have the special coatings on some of the internal parts that help it maintain lubricity under harsh conditions, Taylor said.
The Army MHS comes standard with a frame-mounted thumb safety. The commercial version will be available with or without the thumb safety, depending on customer preference, Taylor said.
Sig Sauer has not yet decided on a price tag for the endeavor.
“It’s high in demand, but if we price it too high, they will say ‘I really want it, but it is just too expensive.'”
In addition to Sig Sauer, Glock Inc. told a German publisher in August that it plans on selling its MHS variant on the commercial market as well.
Glock, FN America and Beretta USA, makers of the current M9 9mm pistol, all lost to Sig Sauer, but selling their versions of the MHS may allow them to recoup the money they invested in the high-profile endeavor.
Richard Flur, head of international sales for Glock GmbH, based in Deutsch-Wagram, Austria, told Stephan Dorler, managing director of European Security and Defence, a publication based in Bonn, Germany, about Glock’s plans to sell its version of MHS on the commercial market.
A Glock official in the U.S. said, however, there is no timeline yet for such a plan.

Why I like Sporterized Rifles Part 2

Image result for sporterized rifle
Here are really what the basic parts that a Good Gunsmith Needs to build a good custom rifle!

Now on to why I prefer Sporterized Bolt Actions Part 2!
 The models that I like are Springfield 1903 Bolt Actions and the Various Mauser 98 especially the Argentine Models. Image result for Argentine Model             No not that Argentine Model! Jeez FOCUS Grumpy!!
This one!Image result for Argentine Model mauser rifle
or this.
Image result for Argentine Model mauser rifle
Which could be turned into something like this!
Image result for ugly sporterized rifle
  All right now let us move on from that embarrassing incident!
  It seems to me, That I remember somehow. That from say when President Theodore Roosevelt went on safari with a custom 1903 Springfield Rifle in 1908.Image result for TR In africa
 Up until let us say the mid 1970’s.Image result for 1970's
 There was a golden age of taking Military Rifles and converting them to a civilian type looking rifle.Image result for teddy roosevelt's rifle
  Now granted some of these veterans of the wars were just butchered. When some idiot would take a hack saw and chop off parts of the stock and maybe hack off part of the barrel also. Then off to “a hunting will we go”.
  Granted for most folks back then. Times were a hell of a lot tougher than we can imagine now a days. Image result for really tough times medievalNo they were not that tough Grumpy!
But some of the rifles from that time period. That I have seen over the years. Would make a hard man cry. But that is just the way it is.

  But on the other hand. You still see some absolute works of art out there. For example I have seen a couple of Griffin & Howe 1903’s. That I would buy in a second. Right after I win the lottery that is.Image result for teddy roosevelt's rifle 1903 springfield rifles
Image result for teddy roosevelt's rifle 1903 springfield rifles
  Then you have the middle ground. Where I do most of my looking. As you can find some really outstanding rifles at some really reasonable prices. Like for example. I have a few Springfield 1903 Rifles that are just wonderful.Image result for custom 1903 springfield rifles  I also have a few Custom Mauser 98’s in various calibers. I am not a fan of the 8 mm Mauser Round by the way. Since it is just too big a caliber for me and my arthritis.
Image result for look of pain after shooting a gunAnswer is! -Don’t shoot a 505 Gibbs in a 9 pound rifle!
 That and there is a real shortage of Grizzly Bears out here in Southern California for some reason. Plus I can not afford the higher grade of 8 mm ammo to get any kind of decent patterns.
  But I do have a Custom Mauser 98 in 257 Roberts. That I bought on line a few years ago. So when it finally got here. All I had to do was to take it to the range and zero it in. That’s it ! No trips to the Gunsmith for a tune up. Nada! It just shoots & shoots well Thank You very much My Lord!257 Roberts Superformance +P 117gr SST (Per 20)
  So here is why that I will almost always choose a custom rifle over a factory made on.  I think that this covers all the reasons on why.
  Since it started out as a Military Rifle over in the Fatherland during WWI. It had to undergo a a pretty strict inspection for it to be accepted by the Imperial  German Army.  An outfit that is not noted for sloppiness.Image result for wwi german army how tough was it
Do you want to talk back to this guy? I think that I will pass myself!
  Then somehow I suspect that it got brought back by either a Doughboy or a GI after one of the World Wars. I am told that the our Army had no real problem back then with the Guys bringing back Trophy Guns. As they were called back then.Image result for GI looting guns in wwii
So once it got here to the Land of the Big PX.
Image result for us army px wwii
I am willing to bet that a pretty good Gunsmith got his hands on it.Image result for a real old school gunsmith
  Who then pulled the action from the rifle and either ditched or traded away the barrel and the old wood stock.
  He then did a pretty good job of squaring he lugs on the bolt itself. He then put on a high quality barrel and chambered it for the then popular 257 Roberts.
 The rifle was then it was given a Timney trigger at some point. Followed up by being married up with a high end Commercial stock like say a Bishop. To finish up the project. A Nice BSA Scope was mounted on it.
  To say that it is a great rifle now would not really be fair to it. But the key difference is this.
  As this rile has been basically been totally remodeled from ts original state. By one man I am willing to bet. Whose reputation is wrapped around in it. So it had better be pretty good or he is going to be out of business soon.
  It has also been very lucky as it is obvious to me. That it has been well taken care of before I got it.
  So I call it a widows gun. Since I think that the owner died and his widow or his family did not want it or needed the cash. Therefore the great price that I paid for it, I think that altogether I paid around $400 dollars about 10 years ago.
  Now could I get such a great deal on a NIB factory Rifle? Maybe. But I kind of doubt it. So I think that I will stay with these old timers for a while longer.
Because for me, it just makes way too much sense to not to.
