    going price for 7N6

    I notice that 7N6 has dried up everywhere, but I still have a fair amount of it, and am thinking to get out of 5.45. What would be a reasonable price?
  2. All sold, other than the VZ rail (#8).
  3. Good guy to deal with.

    +1 Jim Digriz

    Thanks. I'll have to give USPS a +1 also, since I shipped on Saturday morning and it arrived already!
  5. Only two items still available, both heavily discounted: 1) Bonesteel Arms left side folder AR stock adapter, mounted to rifle but never used. $89 8) Bonesteel Arms VZ-58 top railed handguard, new in package. $58
  6. What the military does today does not provide us with freedom nor guard our freedom, which is not in danger from overseas sources but from domestic ones. I noticed that Odd Man Out bailed out of this thread when I posed the following challenge: 'While you were "protecting our freedom", we were (and are) becoming less and less free. How do you explain that?' I don't think he or any of you can answer it.
  7. "It is mandatory that all students take two years of math. If you understood the word, you would have understood my meaning..." I get it. You are trying to pretend that being forced to "serve" in the military is not involuntary servitude. If you are serving, but not voluntarily, what is it, exactly? "To your second statement, "No, I was never inclined...". It is very clear to me that you do not know the meaning of service. I served under a few that I did not agree with but understood that my service was to my country and not a single man. Service transcends the petty self serving interests of the individual and elevates the person into serving the nation. " You weren't smart enough to work out that obeying the President's wishes is not the same as serving the nation's interests. The Iraq war was stupid in and of itself and not in the nation's interest, but it also led inexorably to Obama and Obamacare. (There would have been no President Obama without the complete and utter debacle of the Iraq War). But hey, thanks for your service! While you were "protecting our freedom", we were (and are) becoming less and less free. How do you explain that? But you are right about one thing: I care nothing about serving the nation. The nation is no god to me, and nationalism is not a value promoted in the Scriptures. I try to serve God, and to take care of my family, not the interests of those who want to take away my freedoms and sponge off of my labors (the majority of my "countrymen"). So I do know something about service, just not the kind you value.
  8. "My offer of mandatory service for the country has nothing to do with the draft, ergo your statement has no bearing in logic..." If you don't wish to be misunderstood, try to make it more clear what you are advocating. But given the topic of this thread, the assumption that a draft is in view is completely logical. "have you ever served???" In the military? No, I was not inclined to put myself and my conscience under the absolute authority of the likes of Barack Obama, George W. Bush, or Bill or Hillary Clinton. I do try to serve God though. "And it is even more amazing how many liberals desire more State control over the unwashed masses, not realizing that they populate said group." If you'd been paying closer attention, you would have understood that I want less state intervention and control, not more.
  9. It's still involuntary servitude. It's amazing how many conservatives believe that our lives belong to the state.
  10. What else do you call involuntary servitude if not slavery? How is "service" meritorious if it is not voluntarily given? Besides, your thesis has been tried and found wanting. Did the draft during the Vietnam era instill "depussification and patriotism"? Hardly. Our lives do not belong to the state. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aLEUsa5MdUg
  11. I'll differ from everyone who has commented so far and say this is a good change. Freedom of conscience is good, and mandatory military service (slavery) is not. If the United States is ever invaded militarily by a foreign power, there will be no shortage of volunteers to repel the invasion.
