Recently I was asked if my posts on the Ruger 10/22 magazine repair and maintenance tutorials could be used to create PDFs.

"Bear" Luallen of Tactical Image Guys specializes in the creation, design, and production of the M249 SAW Conversion Kit for the Ruger 10/22, and thought that it would be a great asset to his customers. I was more than happy to oblige!

M249 SAW Conversion Kit for the Ruger 10/22

The conversion kit is a well engineered accessory for those folks looking to have a little more fun with the 10/22, but Bear is currently working on far more serious stocks for our fighting men and law enforcement personnel. I'll have more details on those as production starts and the first ones come out for testing and use.

I would like to thank Bear and his team at Tactical Image Guys for thinking enough about my work to want to share it with their customers.

You can find all the tutorials in printable PDF form, Disassembling the Ruger 10/22, Cleaning the Ruger 10/22, Assembling the Ruger 10/22, and Disassembling and Cleaning the Ruger 10/22 Rotary Magazine, at Tactical Image Guys Hints and Tips.

Bore Patch: A Soldier is being railroaded

I just snatched this from Bore patch's blog:

Bore Patch: A Soldier is being railroaded

By the Pentagon, no less.

1LT Michael Behenna was sentenced to 25 years for the murder of an Iraqi detainee he says attacked him. The Government's own expert witness filed an affidavit saying that he told the prosecutors that Behenna's story was the only explanation that fit the forensic evidence. I've read the affidavit, and it is damning of the Government's actions.

Behenna's attorneys were not informed of this testimony. He was convicted, and a motion for a new trial has been denied.

Please pass this on. Bloggers, please post a link to Lt Behenna's site.

Warrior Mind Training

"Rooted in the ancient Samurai code of self-discipline, Warrior Mind Training draws on the image of the mythic Japanese fighter, an elite swordsman who honed his battle skills along with his mental precision. The premise? Razor-sharp attention plus razor-sharp marksmanship equals fearsome warrior.

A new program has been ushered into the US military to help our soldiers become even better than they already are.

"Our mission is to mentally prepare our troops to go out and fight the war, whether that is in the mountains of Afghanistan, the streets of Baghdad or protecting our borders and assets at home. To take the war to the enemy, but leave the battle on the battlefield."

Taking lessons from the Samurai and there legendary mental acuity and concentration, Warrior Mind Training teaches the art of mental focus, calm, and clarity necessary on today's battlefield. It also teaches our soldiers how to better cope with the stresses of war, both during and after deployment.

I would suggest that anyone interested in an edge like no other, take a look at Warrior Mind Training.
