Two Targets, One Bullet: How the Ultimate Sniper Rifle Was Made | Danger Room <img class="aligncenter size-large wp-image-54478" title="08D-060" src="http://www.wired.com/images_blogs/dangerroom/2011/08/ORD_L115A3_and_Sniper_Ghillie_lg-660x490.jpg" alt="" width="660" height="490" /> In 2007, when the Navy SEALs went looking for an alternative to the Barrett weapons system it already used — an ultra-high-caliber rifle capable of firing .5-inch cartridges at distances beyond 1,200 meters — it talked to the best weapons manufacturers across the globe. Eventually it contacted a small company with 50 employees, who, it had heard, could make a weapon suitable for its tactical and operational demands. It didn’t buy American; it skirted around the excellence of German and Scandinavian weapons design ; and, unsurprisingly, it didn’t call the Russians. It went British.
How to Completely Mask & Anonymize Your BitTorrent Traffic Using Anomos A couple times a year, I hear about someone I know receiving that oh-so-scary letter from their ISP telling them to stop torrenting. ISPs will go as far as throttling your bandwidth (without lowering your bill), and sometimes even reporting you to authorities. The next thing you know, you're being summoned to court for copyright violations. You don't even have to be torrenting anything illegal! In my opinion, this is the worst part—you don't even get the bandwidth that you paid for.
The constrictor knot is one of the most effective binding knots . [ 1 ] [ 2 ] [ 3 ] Simple and secure, it is a harsh knot that can be difficult or impossible to untie once tightened. It is made similarly to a clove hitch but with one end passed under the other, forming an overhand knot under a riding turn . The double constrictor knot is an even more robust variation that features two riding turns. [ edit ] History First called "constrictor knot" in Clifford Ashley 's 1944 work The Ashley Book of Knots , this knot likely dates back much further. [ 4 ] Although Ashley seemed to imply that he had invented the constrictor knot over 25 years before publishing The Ashley Book of Knots , [ 1 ] research indicates that he was not its originator. [ 5 ] Ashley's publication of the knot did bring it to wider attention. [ 6 ]

Bug Out Bag For someone new to being a Survivalist building your first Bug Out Bag can seem like a big task. Everybody you read about has been tweaking theirs for months or even years and has a pile of gear built up. It’s hard to know where to start, but if you cover all of the basics in a survival situation you will still be much better off that 99% of the people. A Bug Out Bag, (also called a BOB, Get Out of Dodge Bag, GOOD, or 72 Hour Bag) is usually designed to get you out of an emergency situation and allow you to survive self-contained for up to 3 days. A lot of people plan their Bug Out Bag to sustain them for much longer than that, but there is always a limit to what you can carry on your back and a 3 day target is a good place to start.
