THE LOOTERS. Return to the Dark Ages.
The problem was not born from the streets it was manufactured by social ‘ist’ ‘do gooder’ reformers. “Those that sow the wind, will reap the whirlwind.”
Again, the British Gun Laws worked for the Looters and Crims. The poor disarmed public were queuing to buy aluminium baseball bats to defend their families, properties and lives again. Repetitively, the second generation of coloured immigrants, (black, brown, light brown, yellow, and white, sometimes referred to in a derogatory way as ‘whiggers’) are again out of control, becoming more confrontational, attacking ‘law abiding’ whites and blacks and robbing stores, in organised mobs. It is in an epidemic form, fermenting in every Angelo Saxon country in the world.
It is not oddly that large gutted, ‘has been’ whites, like me, are becoming more outwardly and openly, sick of it? What’s more annoying is that the media are hiding the cause and nature of this mass theft and violence, which further infuriates the right wing, red necks into stating, “Bring it on.”
The media paints me, as the model, racist, white supremacist, ‘red neck’ and slings in many other untrue slurs as well, just because I am a pro gun activist, and believe in the freedom of speech and have been persecuted and prosecuted for stating that Sodomy is wrong and is a very un healthy life style. Yet, I am criticised by friends for, explaining to them that their solution would give firearms negative publicity and would play us into the media and anti gunners clammy hands. “Kill all the ………” comments get no support from me, besides the known fact that my genocidal inclinations are limited to those, whose backsides polish up the thick leather seats of Parliament House Canberra.
The Entries and Back Streets
The 2nd gen looting coloured (includes all colours) immigrants are not the product of the slums of Britain, or even the product of racism. I grew up in those long rows of houses during the 1950s. Manchester has some of the most notorious slums, Old Trafford, Stretford, Salford, Trafford Park, Hulme, Ancoats. Segregation reigned. Manchester City supporters lived separately to Manchester United supporters, to read whole article see http://www.ronowengympie.com/ron-owen/ron-story/the-looters-return-to-the-dark-ages/
………they have been doing it for years, they call my warnings, incitement. Maybe, I’m just getting too close to the source of the problem.
Postscript for Debate.
Is this the reason for Anders Behring Breivik’s attack on a Labour Party’s Workers’ Youth League Camp? Did he understand that the real problem was the left wing, academics, the social worker, ‘doo gooder’, and obliging, vote prostituting politicians? Maybe he was not mad, after all? Is it just the fact that we are all a bit slow, in picking up his reasons?

Accurate Firearm Design
Hand Guards And All That!
In the days of black powder and muzzle loading firearms, firing at best 2 rounds per minute, rifles rarely got hot, maybe warm enough to create a little mirage when using the sights but not hot enough to burn the hands. In the 1870s, when British Forces went to South Africa to fight the Zulu’s with the Martini Henry rifle, which fired the .450/577 round, the soldiers who knew the score, used wet deer skin to wrap around the barrel. In the sun it went hard, dried into shape and gave their hands protection from the heat of the barrel. As the Zulu’s were rather thick on the ground at places like Rorkes Drift and Ulundi and after lots of rapid firing at thousands of bodies, they needed to cut a bit of space with the Bayonet and give them the drill, 1 , 2 three 1, was the timing as I remember it. As the soldier had to grip the rifle, as he would use a pike, they often burnt the skin off their hands. Of course it was much worse for the Zulu who had to wear the pointy end between his ribs. It was noticed that the ‘old sweats’, who had used the deer skin had not suffered any burnt hands, so from then on the worlds firearm designers on government budgets and expense accounts began to design handguards on all military rifles.
We still have them on new military rifle today. Quick bursts of more than one magazine full, (often necessary in war, but unless you come across a mob of ten pigs, it not an occupational hazard in hunting,) will heat the barrel to such an extent that it would seriously burn the hands if touched. Therefore, semi-automatic of fully automatic shoulder rifles intended for military use are provided with synthetic hand guards over the top of the barrel to protect the hands from the hot barrel, both in ordinary operation and when using the bayonet. Such hand guards are objectionable in that they prevent free circulation of the air around the barrel to cool it, but they are necessary to prevent burning the hands. They also, to some extent, prevent the cloud of mirage of heated air that arises from a very hot barrel from obscuring the target when aiming. This phenomena is a common occurrence in Australia, when looking through the scope it makes the target seem underwater or in a swimming pool. Many shooters experiencing this will, wait have a cup of tea, and then go back to shooting with a clear vision. Of course in competitive shooting with time a great factor, the only way to cure it is to fit a tube to the front of your telescopic sight. Scope manufactures call the ones issued with the big target scopes, “Sun Shades” and when shooting into a low sun, they may be very useful, but I have found the main use if to deflect the heat rising from the barrel, which will generally leave a cooler clearer air in front of the sight. Sometimes is necessary to extend this tube with a thin sheet of rolled up cardboard rolled into a tube and Sellotaped to the front of the telescopic sight. Obviously, none of the attempts to alleviate the mirage must cause anything to touch the barrel itself as this will immediately change the harmonics of the barrel and subsequently change the point of impact of the bullet.

Understanding Reloading Ammunition
Development of the Primer
The Boxer primer is fabricated quite differently. It utilizes the same cup type and pellet of priming compound, but there the similarity ends. A conical anvil stamped from thin sheet metal is pressed tightly into the mouth of the cup, its peak bearing snugly against the priming pellet. Thus, anvil, cup, and pellet are formed into a single complete assembly.
The Boxer case contains a simple, flat-bottomed primer pocket, pierced centrally by a fairly large-diameter (usually about .080″, or a bit less) flash hole. When the primer is seated, the “feet” of the anvil must bear on the bottom of the pocket. If they do not, part of the force of the firing pin blow will be absorbed in driving the entire primer further forward into the primer pocket hole before the pellet is crushed and ignited. This causes staggered ignitions which lead to a loss of accuracy and reliability.
The Boxer primer is used almost totally in Australia, United States and Canada, it only when we have some obscure European brass cartridge cases to reload to we have to search high and low to find a source of Berdan Primers. The Berdan primer is used by Europe and parts of the world where they do not reload much. However, as Nato countries have had to fall in line with the U.S.A manufactured ammunition calibers the rest of the non aligned countries of the world are following suit with Boxer primed ammunition. For example, Israeli-produced military ammunition is Boxer primed. Some Indonesian and Chinese ammunition are Boxer primed and Germany‘s RWS is also now producing military and sporting cartridges in both types for the choice of the buyer.
In Australia, we find it hard to understand why anyone would ever use want to use Berdan-type cases and primers, but think about it, if its all we can get to keep a rifle shooting we will go to that extra trouble and use Berdan cases. Remember, though, that widespread reloading of metallic cartridges is virtually unknown in many other countries of the world. Except to the handloader, the differences between the two primers are insignificant and not relevant as the shooter just fires them, some do not even pick up the empty cases. Not like us bower birds.
Due to the location and size of the flash holes, it is virtually impossible to remove fired Berdan primers by means of a punch through the case mouth. The most common method is to pierce the cup with a slender, pointed instrument from the outside, then pry it out. As with the RCBS Berdan De-Cappers on the market. During black powder days, a tool called a “cap awl” was used for this purpose. European tools for the purpose look like a three-handled pliers and combine the piercing and prying into a single motion. Regardless of the type tool used, the point must be flat (horizontal) and chisel-shaped A conical point such as on an ice pick will tear through the thin cup, leaving it hopelessly stuck in the pocket. Remembering this simple tip can save you hours of blood, sweat and tears.
Boxer primers are very easy to remove. The large central flash hole allows a punch to be inserted from the mouth of the case to push the expended primer out of its pocket. It is just that simple. What came first the chicken or the egg? I have always asked the question. Did we develop as a handloading country because of the availability of the simple to replace Boxer primer? Or did our grandfathers adopt the Boxer primer because they were handloaders? I believe the latter as Australia began in shooting with British military and British calibres and way back they were all Berdan primed. Either type of primer is equally simple to insert in the case. They are simply pressed into the proper depth, and the same types of tools will handle either type so long as diameters do not differ greatly. Bizarre, really, that by the late 1880’s and early 1890’s the U.S. Berdan primer was solidly entrenched in England and the rest of the world. And the British Boxer was standard in virtually all U.S. production ammunition.
The Australian handloader is inclined to sneer at the Berdan primer and loudly proclaim the Boxer far superior. Well, for reloading with our tools, the latter is certainly the most convenient. As for being superior, an objective analysis indicates otherwise. From a purely technical viewpoint, there is little doubt in this scribe’s mind that the Berdan primer delivers equal or even more reliable results.
From a mechanical viewpoint, the interposing of a light-weight anvil between pellet and case is bound to inject ignition variations. The anvil may or may not be seated solidly on the bottom to the primer pocket. Assembly of anvil to cup can easily vary from the ideal. Pellets (particularly the dry-mix type) pre-stressed by the anvil are more likely to crack or flake in storage, handling, and loading. All of the foregoing are potential troubles that do not exist in the Berdan-type case-primer combination. In addition, the Berdan primer is simpler and cheaper than the Boxer to produce. At the same time, production of Berdan cases is extremely little (if any) more costly than Boxer types.
All of this convinces me that purely from the viewpoint of doing the best job of igniting small arms ammunition at lowest cost, the Berdan primer might even be superior to the Boxer. Do not rise in wild outrage at this statement. I would scream louder than all of you if the Boxer primer were replaced. Cold chills run up my spine just thinking of the headaches that would have developed if even a part of the millions of primers I’ve used, or thousand of customers whom I have had to instruct, had all been Berdan. When it comes to reloading, Colonel Boxer’s invention has no peer.

Hear and Protect Hear normally up to 85 db Electronically reduces & protects hearing Protects hearing above 85 db Able to hear normal conversations and sounds to 85 decibels. Over 200 hours of battery life. Auto-adjust headband. Solid state circuit. Rotary on-off volume knob.
HOW THE ELECTRONIC EAR MUFFS WORK
These electronic ear muffs are a high standard ear muff in design, they are made to feel light and comfortable for all day use. They can be used as standard ear muff when the electronic component is not turned on and will passively reduce noise like any normal ear muff. They have a standard noise reduction rating of 29 decibel and are a Class 5.
Once turned on the microphone, located at the top of the ear muff, will pick up and amplify ambient noise. If some one standing next to you talks, their voice will be amplified through the speakers in both ear muffs. Should there be a loud noise, such as a firearm, the electronic ear muffs will automatically cut out and block the loud noise. The electronic ear muffs are designed to attenuate noise about 85 decibels, meaning that they will block out instantly, once the noise reaches a certain level. The electronic ear muffs allow you to control the volume level of ambient noise around you. On the shooting range with constant loud reports, the electronic ear muffs will block this noise. For range instructions or to communicate with another person, you can instantly hear them speak.
At the range or anywhere ear protection is constantly required, but you also need to hear instructions from others or you wish to be more aware of the ambient sound around you, these electronic ear muffs are what you need.
