Building a long-range rifle shooting pit

We have developed a home rifle range, and when shooting at distances in excess of 250 yards, it neigh-on impossible to see the bullet holes on a black target.

Instead of digging a traditional pit into the ground, I designed this shooing pit, where the “puller” can sit safely behind a burn.

After each shot, the puller will mark the current hole in red, and paste over the previous shot with either a black or white pasting circle.

We aee starting out with 308 rifles, powerful to hit a target at 1,000 yards, so a safe burn is an absolute necessity.

See our plans for our 300 yard long-range rifle shooting area.

Installing a rifle scope on an AR-15 or M-4 assault rifle

While the long distance 50 caliber sniper rifles can kill at 8,000 yards.

At over a mile away you have a full seven seconds from the time between squeezing off the first round and the terrorist hearing the first bullet!

That’s enough time for three shots before the ememy hears you!

However, you can also mount a high-powered rifle scope on an AR-15 or M-4 for high-speed shooting at up to 400 yards.

When mounting a rifle scope on an AR15, resist the temptation to stack AR-15 rifle sights because you lose cheek weld, vital for long distance kills.

Don’t do this!

Instead, get a quick release for a picatinny rail and mount the telescopic sight as close to the AR barrel as possible:

Use a quick release rail to allow you to use your battle sights also

Note that the telescopic sight blocks the charging handle.

You also need to add an AR-15 Charging Handle Assembly extender to allow you to load the weapon.

Use a charging handle adapter to get around the rifle scope

Feral hog hunting & Hogzilla

Feral pigs have become a real problem, and with pigs quickly reverting back to a feral state, killing them has become a real public service.

You can book feral hog huinting trips.

We all remember Hogzilla, a monster pig which grew to a giant size from feasting on fish chow at a catfish farm.

Redneck pistol!

I'm proud to come from a long line of rednecks:

And I collect redneck art and redneck innovations.

Here is my 150 year cap lock rifle that some redneck chopped down and converted into a 58 caliber pistol!

A redneck pistol made from a rifle from the redneck collection of Don Burleson

The redneck sawed off the end of the rifle butt and added a pistol grip!

This is just as bad as using Duct tape, like redneck repairs!

Be careful putting a Potato in your Speedo!

There is an old urban legend that a man can make himself more attractive to the ladies by putting a potato in his underwear.

But most Americans don't need any "male enhancement":

Some say that the ladies are attracted to a bluge in the britches

Some insecure men believe that size matters, and European men wear padded underwear to compensate for having teenie weenies:

Underwear for European men

No Lie, they make special itty-bitty condoms for European men:

A Eurpoean condom

Be careful using a potato to enhance your masculinity

Once upon a time there was a European who was told that he could attract women at the beach if he stuffed a potato into his Speedo.

He immediate went to the grocery store and inserted a potato into his swimsuit.

However, when he started strutted his stuff down the beach, the ladies did not react as he expected.

Instead of being impressed, they pointed and laughed at him.

“What am I doing wrong?” he asked his friend.

“You Idiot!"

"You are supposed to wear the potato in the front of your swim trunks!”

Death by "Bloody Eagle"

I was watching the "History Channel International" TV show "The Dark Ages" amd it described a torture called the "Bloody Eagle", practiced in York.

One of my favorite authors Thomas Harris (“Silence of the Lambs”, “Hannibal”) has a scene where Hannibal Lecter uses an ancient Norse method of execution called the “Bloody Eagle”.

In the Dark Ages, the Viking “Ivarr the Boneless” created a gruesome precursor to being drawn and quartered, an execution called “att rista blodvrn”, translated into the “bloody eagle” or the “blood eagle”.

The victim lies face-down his ribs are cut away while he is still alive.

His lungs are then yanked from his cheat and spread apart to resemble to wings of an eagle, and they continued to fill and contract from the heavy breathing of the victim.

“They caused the bloody eagle to be carved on the back of Ælla, and they cut away all of the ribs from the spine, and then they ripped out his lungs.”

This form of death by "blood Eacgle" could take many hours as the victim slowly bled to death

Seal Revenge!

The seals are now fighting back:

.223 to 22 conversion kit tips

I'm cheap and I shoot alot, so I bought a "22 conversion kit" for my AR-15 Assault rifle and I love it!

Converting a assault rifle into a 22 is a great way to practice at up to 100 yards:

AR-15 with a 22 bolt and magazine

Smaller bullets are way cheaper, and you can save cash using smaller 22 bullets:

Smaller bullets are 10x cheaper

This shows how easy it is to change out a Colt A-15 .223 bolt worth a .22 Long rifle bolt, giving you 10x the target time for the same money.

It costs 40 cents for a 2.23 bullet vs. only 4 cents for a 22. LR bullet, a 10x cheaper ammo.

See here how easy it is to convert your AR into a .22 caliber semi-automatic rifle:

origin of "Admit nothing, deny everything, make counter-accusations."

I have seen Federal agents wearing shirts with this neat logo:

Andrew Burleson's first shot at 1,000 yards - Bullseye!

You only get one chance at your first first-shot at 1,000 yards, and most folks are happy if they hit the paper, much less the target!

Imagine the challenge of hitting a six inch bullseye at a distance of ten football fields away!!

It's rare, but our Son Andrew Burleson did it on his very first shot!

Janet and I we watching the TV show “Top Shot” where they used a 50 Caliber rifle to hit a huge six foot round target at 1,000 yards.

See the show here, the Top Shot 1,000 yard Challenge

They made it out like it was a big deal, so we decided to see how we did at 1,000 yards.

The target square below is six feet square with a 44 inch black target:

Even at 300 yards, a target looks small

A 50 caliber at 1,000 yards is too easy, we use a 30 caliber rifle at 1,000 yards, and both Janet and my son shot nearly as well a the guys on the "Top Shot" show.

We believe that long distance rifle skills are important and we are studying NRA conventional high-powered rifle competition.

This is Janet with her .308, she affectionately calls “The Beast”.

Janet with her .308 Remington 700 (with a Leupold 6.5-20x 40mm scope)

It works great on our 300 yards range on the ranch, but we need to get out and stretch our legs at longer distances.

We have family in the military and we got access to a 1,000 yard range.

It’s very intimidating on a long target range.

The black targets ring is only 44 inches and it’s barely perceptible to the naked eye!

Fourty Four inch targets can barely be seen at 1,000 yards

Our .308 has a muzzle velocity of twice the speed of sound (2.760 feet per second) which is fine up to 900 yards, but after that, the bullet goes sub-sonic and tumbles into the target!

To get around the trans-sonic airflow, we loaded with a faster powder and 155 grain bullets (a lighter load), and we stayed supersonic at 1,000 yards easily.

After doping the scope, I was shooting 2 MOA, so I gave up and let our son Andy have a crack at 1,000 yards.

Andy Burleson learns proper sniper sighting

On his very first shot at 1,000 yards he hit a bullseye!

A 10-X!

Remember, this is the distance of ten football fields and the bullseye is only six inches wide!

Later, we tried a bigger rifle, a 300 Mag, and the same again, Andy’s first shot was a bullseye!

Andy Burleson is a born sniper, incredible eyesight and superb sense for Kentucky windage . .

The Shoe Bombers Sentencing!

I love this judge, a real American. It’s sad that this Patriot (Judge Bill Young) was not covered on TV. Read this the sentencing of the Shoe Bomber Terrorist

Judge William Young: My hero

The shoe bomber

Ruling by Judge William Young, US District Court.

Judge Young: 'Mr. Richard C. Reid, hearken now to the sentence the Court imposes upon you. . .

We are not afraid of you or any of your terrorist co-conspirators, Mr. Reid. We are Americans. We have been through the fire before.

There is too much war talk here and I say that to everyone with the utmost respect. Here in this court, we deal with individuals as individuals and care for individuals as individuals.

As human beings, we reach out for justice. You are not an enemy combatant. You are a terrorist.

You are not a soldier in any war. You are a terrorist.

To give you that reference, to call you a soldier, gives you far too much stature.

Whether the officers of government do it or your attorney does it, or if you think you are a soldier, you are not-----, you are a terrorist.

And we do not negotiate with terrorists.

We do not meet with terrorists.

We do not sign documents with terrorists.

We hunt them down one by one and bring them to justice. So war talk is way out of line in this court.

You are a big fellow. But you are not that big. You're no warrior. I've known warriors. You are a terrorist.

A species of criminal that is guilty of multiple attempted murders. In a very real sense, State Trooper Santiago had it right when you first were taken off that plane and into custody and you wondered where the press and the TV crews were, and he said: 'You're no big deal.'

You are no big deal. What your able counsel and what the equally able United States attorneys have grappled with and what I have as honestly as I know how tried to grapple with, is why you did something so horrific. What was it that led you here to this courtroom today?

I have listened respectfully to what you have to say. And I ask you to search your heart and ask yourself what sort of unfathomable hate led you to do what you are guilty and admit you are guilty of doing? And, I have an answer for you. It may not satisfy you, but as I search this entire record, it comes as close to understanding as I know.

It seems to me you hate the one thing that to us is most precious. You hate our freedom. Our individual freedom. Our individual freedom to live as we choose, to come and go as we choose, to believe or not believe as we individually choose.

Here, in this society, the very wind carries freedom.

It carries it everywhere from sea to shining sea.

It is because we prize individual freedom so much that you are here in this beautiful courtroom, so that everyone can see, truly see, that justice is administered fairly, individually, and discretely.

It is for freedom's sake that your lawyers are striving so vigorously on your behalf, have filed appeals, will go on in their representation of you before other judges. We Americans are all about freedom. Because we all know that the way we treat you, Mr. Reid, is the measure of our own liberties.

Make no mistake though.

It is yet true that we will bear any burden; pay any price, to preserve our freedoms. Look around this courtroom. Mark it well. The world is not going to long remember what you or I say here. The day after tomorrow, it will be forgotten, but this, however, will long endure.

Here in this courtroom and courtrooms all across America, the American people will gather to see that justice, individual justice, justice, not war, individual justice is in fact being done.

The very President of the United States through his officers will have to come into courtrooms and lay out evidence on which specific matters can be judged and juries of citizens will gather to sit and judge that evidence democratically, to mold and shape and refine our sense of justice.

See that flag, Mr. Reid? That's the flag of the United States of America.

That flag will fly there long after this is all forgotten.

That flag stands for freedom. And it always will. Mr. Custody Officer. Stand him down.

What if you are a horse in human form?

Lulu is a self-publisher in North Carolina who is aiding and abetting plagiarists and they allowed a thief named Flavia D’Souza to publish one of my own books in her name, even though a 30 second Google search would have revealed that it was stolen:

Flavia D'Souza stole my book!

I detest Lulu even more because they allow people to publish anonymously, making it nearly impossible to sue for copyright infringement.

To wit, here is an interesting offering by Lulu, written by “Jason the horse”.

It’s a real lulu of a book titled “What if you are a horse in human form”?

Lulu publishes by anonymous authors

“This book discusses openly what many have known but very few have ever revealed, even to family members and close friends.

Today there are many horses in human form in the world, and they are here to help their race—and humanity.

What if You are a Horse in Human Form? was written to comfort, inform, and encourage these equines, most of whom have never met another in their situation and fear that they are all alone.
Here they will find information that will facilitate their own journeys of self-discovery to learn why they are here and what the equine race wants them to accomplish.

This work will also be of help to the human relatives and friends of these horses-in-human-guise.”

How do we know that Jason is really a horse in human form?

Rocket to Uranus

Back in the 1950's, everyone was outer-space crazy.

They even had space cadet music records, featuring the official space cadet chorus and orchestra!

You can’t make this up, This is a real record album, the space cadets fly a rocket into Uranus:

The space cadets rocket to Uranus

And what's with those bulges in their britches?

The term “space cadet” has been used since the 1970’s to describe ADD people and potheads, but there was a time in the 1950’s when space cadets were quite real.

They even had the Space Cadet magazine/comic book. Is it me, or do these guys look way too-old to be cadets?

The creepy space cadets of the early 1950's

The old cadet on the right looks like my friend's uncle Vinny from New York City . . .

In 1953 we saw space cadet comic books that featured Tom Corbett as the elderly space cadet.

In the 21st century they are bringing Space Cadets back!

Important virus alert

The Computer Virus Legion has just issued a Severity-One virus alert for a security vulnerability for myBase Databases on Linux and UNIX platforms. This virus effects myBase and may result in a complete loss of service. This virus may be serious and requires IMMEDIATE attention to neutralize the threat.

Problem: The virus exploits a vulnerability in a Windows myBase client, allowing an unauthorized myBase user to gain root privileges on the UNIX myBase database server. The virus then places a malicious Trojan executable on the server.

CVL References: 41-20374, 75-28365.

Platforms Impacted: Sun Solaris, Red Hat Linux, SuSE Linux, AIX and HP UNIX.

Vulnerability Assessment: The risk is HIGH. The virus software allows the myBase user to gain unauthorized root privileges and can cause serious loss of production service.

Virus Detection: This virus plants a Trojan UNIX shell executable ( on your myBase server and starts a daemon process on each myBase UNIX server.

Again, the threat level for this virus is HIGH, and we highly recommend that you get full details. This myBase virus creates a Trojan executable on your myBase server and starts a daemon process on each myBase UNIX server. If the following command returns "1" then your server may be infected:

ps -ef|grep `whoami`|grep -v grep|wc -l

The virus spreads between myBase servers using the UNIX e-mail gateway by exploiting the UNIX mailx daemon, sending malicious messages to all users defined in the /etc/passwd file. These messages can be detected by their distinctive subject lines 'GENERIC VIAGRA', and 'GROW YOUR THINGY'.

Hallmarks of the myBase virus include:

Increasing degradation in myBase performance, especially as user load and database size increases.

Sub-optimal SQL execution plans will appear in the myBase library cache.

The instance will switch to rule-based SQL optimization and send an e-mail to myBase Support, requesting an iTar for technical assistance.

The following message will appear in the myBase alert log:
MYB-0911411 - Cannot install MySQL

It will rewrite your myBase backup files, changing all active verbs to a passive voice and introducing undetectable misspellings into all text.

You may see a variation on the Oprah Winfrey virus where your SYSTEM tablespace suddenly shrinks to 20 Meg, and then slowly expands-out to over 500 Meg.

The daemon process will attack all PeopleSoft software on the server, in an attempt to take-over control of the application.

The virus may also manifest as a variation of the Monica Lewinsky virus, sucking all of the RAM out of your SGA and then sending e-mails all users, telling them about it.

It will de-magnetize the strips on all of your credit cards and re-program your ATM access code.

It will program your telephone to auto-dial 1-900 talk-dirty-to-me phone lines.

If you are running myBase on Windows, it will will re-calibrate your refrigerator's coolness settings so that all your ice cream melts.

If you are running the multi-threaded server, it will leave the toilet seat up and leave your hair dryer plugged in dangerously close to a full bathtub.
