Matt Bracken is a former SEAL and one great author. Everyone should read his Enemies Trilogy. Catstigo Cay is the last novel he wrote. It's fast paced and a really great read. The hero, Dan Kilmer is a former Marine now cruising around the Caribbean on a 60ft. sailboat. It has plenty of intrigue and action. I found it hard to put down because we want to know what's going to happen next. All of his books are available on Amazon. I get the Kindle editions. There are more reviews on Amazon you can check out. I just purchased the Bracken Anthology, a collection of short stories and observations.
I got a sample of this back in the summer and decided to give it a try. To say I was impressed is understatement at it's finest. I started with my old Llama .45. It was like the slide was mounted on ball bearings. Frog Lube is a food grade lubricant, developed for the harsh environment that the SEAL's work in. It's formulated to be absorbed into the metal and build up a permanent protective coating. It's easy to apply and works the best if the metal is warm.
I took a fresh from the box AR15, stripped it, heated it in the oven and coated it inside and out with Frog Lube. We (youngest son and I) fires a couple hundred round through it and the only failure was a ammo issue. We field stripped it there and everything was still clean and shiny. I'm going to add more lube and see just how much shooting it will take before there is a non ammo failure.
I was so impressed I became a dealer. Come by the show this weekend and Check it out. It's far better that any petroleum products I have used. The part I like the best is it's not temperature sensitive. Some of the heavier gun oils will freeze up and quit if the temp gets too low.
In Sundays Register there was a letter vilifying the NRA and calling for the President to do whatever it takes to enact gun control. This guy is supposedly a retired Marine Colonel. If that's true he should be stripped of his EGA and made to turn in his man card. So much for the oath he took.
I don't see anything in the officers oath that says to only defend the parts of the Constitution I like. To make matters even worse, one of the commenter's even said it would be OK to murder 4 million NRA members if that's what it took. Gee, haw about another holocaust. It's only been 70 years since the last roundup of people the government didn't like.
Go read the whole letter. Don't forget to read the comments and maybe even leave one.
