    Click here to enlargeThose of you who might not know, the man on the left is the Commandant of the Marine Corps, and he is proud to know the man on the right.

    Maybe you'd like to hear about a real American, somebody who honored the uniform he wears.
    Meet Brian Chontosh Churchville-Chili Central School Class of 1991.

    Proud graduate of the Rochester Institute of Technology.
    Husband and about-to-be father. First lieutenant (now Captain) in the United States Marine Corps. And a genuine hero, the secretary of the Navy said so yesterday.

    At 29 Palms in California Brian Chontosh was presented with the Navy Cross, the second highest award for combat bravery the United States can bestow.

    That's a big deal. But you won't see it on the network news tonight And all you'll read in Brian's hometown newspaper is two paragraphs of nothing. The odd fact about the American media in this war is that it's not covering the American military. The most plugged-in nation in the world is receiving virtually no true information about what its warriors are doing.

    Oh, sure, there's a body count. We know how many Americans have fallen. And we see those same casket pictures day in and day out.
    And we're almost on a first-name basis with the jerks who abused the Iraqi prisoners. And we know all about improvised explosive devices and how we lost Fallujah and what Arab public-opinion polls say about us and how the world hates us.

    We get a non-stop feed of gloom and doom but we don't hear about the heroes. The incredibly brave GIs who honorably do their duty. The ones our grandparents would have carried on their shoulders down Fifth Avenue.

    The ones we completely ignore, like Brian Chontosh. It was a year ago on the march into Baghdad . Brian Chontosh was a platoon leader rolling up Highway 1 in a humvee.

    When all hell broke loose, ambush city. The young Marines were being cut to ribbons. Mortars, machine guns, rocket propelled grenades.
    And the kid out of Churchville was in charge. It was do or die and it was up to him. So he moved to the side of his column, looking for a way to lead his men to safety.As he tried to poke a hole through the Iraqi line his humvee came under direct enemy machine gun fire. It was fish in a barrel and the Marines were the fish. And Brian Chontosh gave the order to attack...

    He told his driver to floor the humvee directly at the machine gun emplacement that was firing at them. And he had the guy on top with the 50 cal unload on them.

    Over into the battlement the humvee went and out the door Brian Chontosh bailed, carrying an M16 and a Beretta and 228 years of Marine Corps pride.

    And he ran along the trench, with its mortars and riflemen, machine guns and grenadiers. And he killed them all. He fought with the M16 until it was out of ammo. Then he fought with the Beretta until it was out of ammo. Then he picked up a dead man's AK4 and fought with that until it was out of ammo.

    Then he picked up another dead man's AK47 and fought with that until it was out of ammo.

    At one point he even fired a discarded Iraqi RPG into an enemy cluster, sending attackers flying with its grenade explosion.

    When he was done Brian Chontosh had cleared 200 yards of entrenched Iraqis from his platoon's flank. He had killed more than 20 and wounded at least as many more
    .
    But that's probably not how he would tell it. He would probably merely say that his Marines were in trouble, and he got them out of trouble. Ooh-rah, and drive on.

    "By his outstanding display of decisive leadership, unlimited courage in the face of heavy enemy fire, and utmost devotion to duty, 1st Lt. Chontosh reflected great credit upon himself and upheld the highest traditions of the Marine Corps and the United States Naval Service."
    That's what the citation says. And that's what nobody will hear. That's what doesn't seem to be making the evening news.

    Accounts of American valor are dismissed by the press as propaganda, yet accounts of American difficulties are heralded as objectivity. It makes you wonder if the role of the media is to inform or to depress - to report or to deride. To tell the truth, or to feed us lies.
    But I guess it doesn't matter. We're going to turn out all right as long as men like Brian Chontosh wear our uniform.

    The Israelis have a hand-held, shoulder launched missile with
    phosphorous that explodes on contact. The destruction is devastating.
    Was a time being inside a tank was considered a relatively safe place
    during battle. Of course that was some years ago. Even without armor
    piercing ability, the phosphor will burn completely through the metal
    in a very short time. No more safe battle positions, imagine this
    from a drone! What you are about to watch is an actual event. The
    Israeli Armed Forces filmed this in real time. What you'll see is a
    fully armored Syrian tank being hit by an Israeli laser-guided,
    steel-penetrating, phosphorous-filled "hand held shoulder mount"
    mobile rocket. The rocket is small, very portable and is a tightly
    controlled weapon Each one is accounted for when they are checked out
    and back in. There must be no fewer than 2 soldiers present to verify
    the use, one must be a senior officer with a minimum of 10 years
    military service. (Sorry,
    the name and program is kept secret.) This tank was headed for one
    of Israel 's settlements. There were four more tanks one mile to the
    rear of this tank. They turned around before getting to the area
    after learning what had happened to the lead tank You can hear the
    ammunition going off after the initial strike. No Syrian tank crew
    member survived this event and it did not make the news. It is an
    everyday event for Israel 's Armed Forces and they do not permit the
    "embedding" of news reporters with their armed forces like we silly
    Americans do. This weapon and its tactical use is for their survival,
    not for "news" entertainment!
    Perhaps we should take a page from the Israeli Military Handbook.

    Just want to know if there is a counter-measure to this or if tanks are useless. I'm guessing Syrian tanks aren't exactly all that more advanced that cardboard boxes on wheels with lots of duct tape.

    Picked up this nice piece for my Ruger M77....I think with a little bit of training, maybe I can reach out and touch someone at 1000 yards...


    I want to thank all my customers, because without you, I couldnt have gone out and spent $1500 on 'hobby' stuff...

    Those MIG pilots have some nice tricks.... Sure the F-22 and F-35 could handle it though....


    I heard the new MIG can target up to 20 targets at the same time in a 360 degree radius.... but we have similar tech.

    ok, the top knob. once you have it mounted on the rifle, set it baseline 2. that is, under "0" the perpendicular line that has staggered horizontal lines. the second one should just barely be visible when looking at it from behind the gun, not how you have it pictured. with windage on the right, should have them as well. but i doubt you will shoot in high wind, so pick baseline 1 for that.

    left knob is your parrallax, you can play with it, but its individual preference on where its at.

    from there, we need to have you zero it. gotta look up your caliber as i never shot it before, but that scope should be 1/4 minute adjustments- 1 MOA@ 100yds =1" 1MOA @ 200yds = 2" see the pattern? so your scope is in 1/4MOA adjustments for both elevation and windage

    and thats all im gonna give out until we get on a range Click here to enlarge

    Well its not even mounted yet...im waiting for another Ruger ring to arrive because I needed 2 new ones to space the scope away from the barrel (25mm vs the new 30mm tube and 40mm lens), and my Harris bi-pod is slated to show up at the same time. Then they will mount that and the scope for me, zero it and hand it over and off we go Click here to enlarge hoping to get some range time next sunday with it.

    field expedient boresite is put the rifle on a rest, or someone holds it-prone, aiming in, put your target at 25M, set your scope for 300m. Pull out the bolt. look down the barrel and put barrel on target, then bring the crosshairs to target as well, all while keeping LOS (line of sight) through the barrel. Wont be perfect, but will be close

    or use the chamber borelites they have, i had one, but some $#@!er stole it
