Reader Comments of the Week

“I would like to add the pilot and weapon systems officer group of Capt Steve Ritchie and Capt Chuck DeBellvue. They have been a group flying more than North Vietnam. They became the initially Air Force Aces of the Vietnam War. I do not have a quote from either of them but they each meet the criteria talked about by Col Robin Olds in every single way. I met them each when they flew their F-four Phantom to Korat RTAFB Thailand immediately after a mission. There have been 4 red stars painted on the left engine intake splitter which was impressive. I got the feeling from each guys that they knew their business enterprise and have been quite fantastic at it. A handful of weeks later they shot down their fifth MiG producing them aces. DeBellvue went on to score a sixth MiG with a further pilot producing him the highest scoring ace of the Vietnam War. He retired as a Colonel. Sitchie retired as a Brigadier Basic.”

– MIKE KIEDROWSKI, in response to five Inspiring Quotes from Air Force Legends

“I have three AR kind weapons. Two chambered in five.56 x 45 a single 16” carbine &amp a single 10.5” pistol. And a 10.5” chambered in .300 Blackout. I have Anderson adjustable gas blocks on all of them. If you run a sound suppressor on a .300 Blackout pistol you may not get it to function with all ammo without having an adjustable gas block. I had to use an adjustable gas block to get mine functioning with subsonic ammo.”

“I encourage every single handloader to get a chronograph to understand how a specific load behaves in a distinct firearm for sensible motives or basically for entertaining. For instance, in an work to discover 9mm Luger loads that would boost the sound reduction of a suppressor, I “downloaded” various batches with progressively significantly less powder. Then, I tested them with my chronograph to discover what load would be subsonic, but nevertheless have sufficient oomph to function the semi-auto pistol’s action. You can also experiment with (for instance) 115, 124 and 147-grain bullets to create loads exactly where heavier bullets are quicker than lighter bullets. With my chronograph, I get so substantially additional from my variety time than just punching holes in paper!”
