with the assistance of some AR15.com'ers i found a couple of guys in the 42nd ID who could use my help. the other day i was fitting a Larue gas block that i just bought, and i was thinking "WTF am i doing? -- i'm spending money on a gas block when i what i should be doing is sending stuff to my overseas brothers who are in a lot crappier place than i am..."

incidentally the 42nd ID is the same unit that my father was in a couple of years back when the US had to deal with germany in a not so nice way.

ps: the USPS has a "fixed price" shipping scheme set up for military endpoints; no matter how much the box weighs you pay the same amount -- $7.70 -- and the cardboard box itself is free.

pps: for info on what to send/where to send it, you might want to check out:

No Cigs or Cope?!?!
Good for you!
And if anybody is sending tsunami victims money, you damn well better chip in a care package for our troops as well.
I bet millions of "Americans" are donating to the tsunami releif, and good for them, but they don't give a fuck about our troops. They haven't given one dime.
They just complain how Bush has made us resort to "Hillbilly armour" and that sort of bullshit.
Pieces of shit I tell you........
Sorry. I got worked up. Care packages to our troops bring about emotions in me.

my contributions go to my local gunstore which sends packages weekly...sometimes in the range of hundreds of pounds...donated by locals.

My donations consist mostly of cases of babywipes. (apparently worth their weight in gold to people who have little access to running water or soap out in the field) and little niceties like chewing gum.

the thing that REALLY gets me going is when i read this kind of stuff from OUR SOLDIERS:

"-- Another shortage comes in weapons cleaning equipment. Like I mentioned, the climate is harsh & a clean weapon is a happy weapon, dirty ones cause weapon malfuntions usually when needed the most & we all know the results of that. Things like: cutips, pipe cleaners, silicone gun cleaning rags, "bore snakes" in .223 caliber & .308 caliber are the best of the best for cleaning the rifle barrel itself. Most of these items are found in any sports type store in the guns & ammo section."


my wife was trying to calm me down for 10 minutes after i read that entry. some grunt with his face in the sand, living on shit MREs, and sleeping wearing his armor has got to BLOG the world back home to get a 5.56mm BORE SNAKE? who the fuck is in charge here/there?

ok, i'm calmer now.
