Almost overnight, every major name in the industry jumped on the bandwagon, producing their own versions of tactical .22s based on their popular full-bore battle rifle designs.

What you need is a one-of-a-kind custom-made tactical 10/22 that you can assemble yourself. Tactical Ruger 10/22 is the ultimate reference for showing you how to do just that. Written by J.M.Ramos, a noted gun designer and authority on rimfire weapons systems for more than 30 years, this book features simple, step-by-step instructions and hundreds of photographs for assembling a worldclass tactical 10/22 from start to finish. The stunning rifles presented in the book use state-of-the-art 10/22 platforms made by RB Precision (Evolution stock), Nordic Components (AR-22), and Canadian made Fabsports (FS-556). These high-quality, CNC-machined, aircraft-grade aluminum chassis are designed to accept virtually every AR rifle stock, grip, forearm, tactical rail, backup sight, optics, bipod, and muzzle device out there. Whether you own a stock 10/22 or the new Ruger SR-22 that you want to transform into a more versatile multigun weapon system, Tactical Ruger 10/22 shows how to turn out the perfect marksman, sniper simulator, or competition rifle for you.

Everybody Lies

Big Data, New Data, and What the Internet Can Tell Us About Who We Really Are

Author: Seth Stephens-Davidowitz

Publisher: HarperCollins

ISBN: 0062390872

Category: Social Science

Page: 352

View: 9849

Foreword by Steven Pinker Blending the informed analysis of The Signal and the Noise with the instructive iconoclasm of Think Like a Freak, a fascinating, illuminating, and witty look at what the vast amounts of information now instantly available to us reveals about ourselves and our world—provided we ask the right questions. By the end of an average day in the early twenty-first century, human beings searching the internet will amass eight trillion gigabytes of data. This staggering amount of information—unprecedented in history—can tell us a great deal about who we are—the fears, desires, and behaviors that drive us, and the conscious and unconscious decisions we make. From the profound to the mundane, we can gain astonishing knowledge about the human psyche that less than twenty years ago, seemed unfathomable. Everybody Lies offers fascinating, surprising, and sometimes laugh-out-loud insights into everything from economics to ethics to sports to race to sex, gender and more, all drawn from the world of big data. What percentage of white voters didn’t vote for Barack Obama because he’s black? Does where you go to school effect how successful you are in life? Do parents secretly favor boy children over girls? Do violent films affect the crime rate? Can you beat the stock market? How regularly do we lie about our sex lives and who’s more self-conscious about sex, men or women? Investigating these questions and a host of others, Seth Stephens-Davidowitz offers revelations that can help us understand ourselves and our lives better. Drawing on studies and experiments on how we really live and think, he demonstrates in fascinating and often funny ways the extent to which all the world is indeed a lab. With conclusions ranging from strange-but-true to thought-provoking to disturbing, he explores the power of this digital truth serum and its deeper potential—revealing biases deeply embedded within us, information we can use to change our culture, and the questions we’re afraid to ask that might be essential to our health—both emotional and physical. All of us are touched by big data everyday, and its influence is multiplying. Everybody Lies challenges us to think differently about how we see it and the world.

Concealed Carry Bible A Complete Self Defense Guide A to Z There are too many books about self-defense and handguns, I know. I see them and read a few of them. But one thing I noticed lacking is how a gun can protect you in a self-defense situation. Most experts tell you what guns to buy, how to train with them, how to load them and how to shot them, but is that all you need to know? How do you find out when the time comes you will be able to pull the trigger? When I teach people about self-defense, I teach them about the ins and outs of handguns that are popular, how they work and what and how to fix common issues. But I hope that is not why you would read this book, I want to prepare you mentally, and physically and I want you to know all the laws that may affect you along with making you a master of concealed carry where you are comfortable, confident and will know when and how to use it if the time ever comes. I never thought my education and training would be put to test until one fateful day when I found myself in the middle of a gang related shoot out situation where I did have to draw my gun and use it. Let's just say I was little faster. That situation taught me a lot about the legal system and the abuse that goes on in the government everyday basis. But the important thing is I survived through it, and it made me a better person both as a human being and as an instructor who teaches self-defense through concealed carry. Regardless what you hear about declining crime rate, just remember the world population is growing at a much faster rate than the resources we survive on. When this happens you can imagine, more people will fight over the same resources than before. It won't surprise me if there will be a day when it will be "survival of the fittest" law meaning who has more strength, and power will win and have access to the resources. I am not trying to scare you; we are not there yet, it may never happen, but what if it does? Should we be ready? I believe we do. So if you can learn some basic self-defense handgun skills and learn to protect yourself and your family, it won't be such a bad thing would it? I tell my students, 97% of the people who carry guns will never have to use them on anyone, but it is there in case they ever need it. In my opinion, there is no harm in learning a new skill, specialty, if that skill can save lives.

A Time to Kill

The Myth of Christian Pacifism

Author: Greg Hopkins

Publisher: Mindbridge Press

ISBN: 9780982215159

Category: Nonviolence

Page: 334

View: 4249

This book is about decisions. Not the everyday kind such as "What should I wear today?" or "Where shall we eat tonight?" but decisions dealing with life, death, and protecting the innocent. The issue of self-defense concerns decisions of survival for the individual. It can also decide the fate of a nation and its citizens. Survival is the most basic of instincts. Without it, there is no family, community, culture, or state. Unless a person survives, he cannot pass down his genes, ideas, or beliefs. And religious beliefs can affect survival. If Christians are commanded to treat others as they want to be treated, would this not include protecting others from criminal attack? Jesus Christ may have had that in mind when he instructed his disciples to acquire a sword before entering the mission field, even if that meant trading their cloak for the weapon. A Time To Kill: The Myth of Christian Pacifism by Greg Hopkins includes chapters about preparation for self defense, laws that govern self defense, understanding how criminals think, recovery from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), biblical appraisals of military and police, arguments on criminal punishment and retribution, and much more.

The single most important factor in a rapid mass killer incident is time and this book provides advice for the armed or unarmed citizen and the steps that one can take to increase his or her chances of survival. The average active killer will kill or wound between four and five people a minute. Police reaction time varies from a couple of minutes to half an hour. The best way to stop these murders is to have someone close to the scene with a gun and the training to use it. The book describes many major incidents and what can be learned from them and also includes chapters that deal with lone wolf attacks, gun-free zones, and the type of incidents that are likely to be seen in the future.

Frantz Fanon was one of the twentieth century’s most important theorists of revolution, colonialism, and racial difference, and this, his masterwork, is a classic alongside Orientalism and The Autobiography of Malcolm X. The Wretched of the Earth is a brilliant analysis of the psychology of the colonized and their path to liberation. Bearing singular insight into the rage of colonized peoples and the role of violence in historical change, the book also incisively attacks postindependence disenfranchisement of the masses by the elite on one hand, and intertribal and interfaith animosities on the other. A veritable handbook of social reorganization for leaders of emerging nations, The Wretched of the Earth has had a major impact on civil rights, anticolonialism, and black-consciousness movements around the world. This new translation updates its language for a new generation of readers and its lessons are more vital now than ever.
