AR-15 Acronyms A

A1 - Of or referring to a characteristic of the M16A1 (for example, an A1 rear sight)
A2 - Of or referring to a characteristic of the M16A2 (for example, an A2 flash hider)
A3 - Of or referring to a characteristic of the M16A3, or (in civilian parlance) a flat-top receiver. Note that the M16A3 is essentially just a full-auto M16A2, but civilian manufacturers began using the term A3 for flat-top receivers before the military adopted the M16A3 and M16A4, so there is divergence between military and civilian usage of the term "A3". Without a definitive military context, it is most likely that "A3" refers to a flat-top, civilian upper receiver. Note also that some civilian manufacturers call their flat-tops A3, others A4.
A4 - Of or referring to a characteristic of the M16A4 (for example, a flat-top A4 upper receiver)

Eelectronic Hearing Protection

I've tried Peltors...Dillons and others, but prefer my Pro Ears by a long margin. As a firearms safety instructor the ability to hear, at all times, is paramount. Your product is the only one that does not "blank out" momentarily during loud noises. I've been using them for 4 years or so, and have no intention of replacing them with another product. Nothing else lives up to your standard Eelectronic Hearing Protection!

Thank you so much for the two pairs of Pro-Ears Predators. [We had the Predators] in time for our Stuntwomen's Association of Motion Pictures/NSSF Tactical2Practical II shooting seminar we held in November for the elite film industry stuntpeople and stunt coordinators. Everyone who attended got a chance to try them and they became the "must-have" of the weekend!

There are a number of companies that make electronic ear protection with amplification. The company I chose was Ridgeline, Inc. because their specifications were superior and their experience in various applications is extensive. I m very satisfied and impressed with their product.
mspmwg2

Eelectronic Hearing Protection

I bought these based on prior Pro-Ears purchases. Each set that I have bought has been better than the last. I buy them for friends as gifts (my originals are still going strong). I really appreciate the American Made commitment you have; it is my number one purchasing criteria. Your warranty is top notch (I've had to use it once) and your "ears" are the best in Eelectronic Hearing Protection . I wear them proudly on the range and in training.

I would like to thank the person responsible for the fast replacement of the mic covers for my sporting clay muffs. I needed them for competition this weekend and I received the covers today in the mail. Not only do you have a great product, but you stand behind it.

I want to thank you for your excellent customer service and response to my request. American business companies should learn how to take care of their customers like you do! Thank You!!!

SCOPE MOUNTS - Day Still Pressing To Abolish Gun Registry

Hearing Protection

PRO-MAG PLUS
(DPM-1P & DPM-2P)

The Pro-Mag PLUS Hearing protection is the Big Boy when it comes to protection. The new PLUS model with the Pro-Form leather ear seals has an industry highest NRR of 33. The Pro-Mag PLUS Dimension model is designed for high noise situations or shooting in an enclosed area such as indoor ranges, shoot houses, very high caliber loads, demolitions, etc. Pro-Mag Dimension PLUS units will become a favorite choice for use by Range Masters/Instructors or anyone exposed to an extraordinary degree of loud noise. The DLSC circuitry means the officers will hear everything with the clearest, most natural sound quality ever captured, yet be protected against the dangerous sounds of explosions and weapon discharges

All Pro-Mag PLUS models are 7/10ths of an inch larger in cup size than the Pro-Slim PLUS models to accommodate additional insulation for greater sound attenuation. The new Pro-Mag PLUS models have the highest attenuation of all the models we offer with an NRR of 33, also note NRR 33 is the highest in the industry of any electronic hearing product. Available colors: Black, White & OD Green The Pro-Mag PLUS weight with batteries is 14.6 oz.

Online Etiquette: Or lack of it. I've always wonde...
Online Etiquette: Or lack of it. I've always wondered about those online guestbooks that are attached to obituaries these days. Even the printed obituaries in the newspaper often have instructions to "sign the online guest book at ...." Knowing how the physicians on the email discussion listserves stoop to name calling and prickly insults, one would think that inviting people to comment online about the lives of others would be an invitation to vitriol. It is, according to this story. Those online guest book companies devote 30% of their budget to deleting lines like this:

"I sincerely hope the Lord has more mercy on him than he had on me during my years reporting to him at the Welfare Department."

"She never took the time to meet me, but I understand she was a wonderful grandmother to her other grandchildren. "

Reading the obit, he sounds like he was a great father. His son Peter.


Those are the milder (and funnier) ones. Some accuse the dead of molestation or accuse the living of being responsible for the death. The internet - the great revealer of what truly lies in the hearts of men.

Little Bursts of Evolution: How the flu virus evol...
Little Bursts of Evolution: How the flu virus evolves:

Evolution of influenza A virus is commonly viewed as a typical Darwinian process. In this mode of evolution, the virus main surface protein, hemagglutinin (HA), is thought to continually change to evade human immune response, resulting in new dominant strains that eliminate all competitors in a series of rapid successions. Unexpectedly, however, the study found that the periods of intense Darwinian selection accounted for only a relatively small portion of H3N2 flu evolution during the ten-year period examined.

The study found that much of the time the H3N2 virus seemed to be in stasis ; that is, the HA gene showed no significant excess of mutations in the antigenic regions (those recognized by the immune system). During these stasis periods, none of the co-circulating strains is significantly more fit than others, apparently because multiple mutations are required to substantially improve the virus ability to evade the immune system. As a result, an increased variety of strains accumulates. Ultimately, however, one of the variants will come within one mutation of achieving higher fitness and becoming dominant. Once the crucial last mutation does occur, virus evolution shifts from stasis to a brief interval of rapid Darwinian evolution, where the new dominant virus rapidly sweeps through the human population and eliminates most other variants.


Are these viral micro-Cambrian explosions responsibl for the periodic flu pandemics of history?

Taipei Times - archives
Fever Fines: Taiwan is having an outbreak of Dengue fever, and the authorities are not pussy-footing around. Doctors who fail to report cases are being fined:

Individual doctors will face fines of between NT$90,000 (US$ 2,734) and NT$450,000 while hospitals face fines of up to NT$1,500,000.

According to Chou, patients sometimes ask doctors to keep their status hidden to avoid the hassle of being tracked and having sanitation teams come to spray their homes.


Meanwhile, the other China remains uncooperative in avian flu surveillance.

Bear Dangers Remain In New Jersey
The fact the New Jersey governor refused to even consider a bear hunt comes as no surprise. After all, he is a politician.

Flashback
"In my line of work--documenting the fortitude and perseverance of American soldiers, sailors, airmen, Guardsmen and Marines for FOX News--we often interrupt a story to inject a relevant earlier chronological event through the use of device called a "flashback," writes Col. Oliver North. "Such historical references often provide a context for later events. The 2006 political `campaign season` has been a long `flashback`--to the 1970s."

Confusing Animal "Rights" With Our Civil Rights
Dismissing people whose ideas are on society`s fringes comes naturally for most of us. Whether it`s immigration, foreign policy, education or the environment. Take the animal "rights" movement, for instance. Not to be confused with the animal "welfare" movement, a mainstream pursuit concerned with managing the puppy and kitten populations. Animal "rights" activism is more about protest, pressure and raising hell than actual animal care. It`s about taking civil rights that we enjoy and giving them to chickens.

AR-15 SCOPE MOUNTS - (Pistol sights) FAQ

AR-15 Acronyms A

A1 - Of or referring to a characteristic of the M16A1 (for example, an A1 rear sight)
A2 - Of or referring to a characteristic of the M16A2 (for example, an A2 flash hider)
A3 - Of or referring to a characteristic of the M16A3, or (in civilian parlance) a flat-top receiver. Note that the M16A3 is essentially just a full-auto M16A2, but civilian manufacturers began using the term A3 for flat-top receivers before the military adopted the M16A3 and M16A4, so there is divergence between military and civilian usage of the term "A3". Without a definitive military context, it is most likely that "A3" refers to a flat-top, civilian upper receiver. Note also that some civilian manufacturers call their flat-tops A3, others A4.
A4 - Of or referring to a characteristic of the M16A4 (for example, a flat-top A4 upper receiver)

Camouflage - 14 mini mount scope information -- 14 mini mount scope

Eelectronic Hearing Protection

I've tried Peltors...Dillons and others, but prefer my Pro Ears by a long margin. As a firearms safety instructor the ability to hear, at all times, is paramount. Your product is the only one that does not "blank out" momentarily during loud noises. I've been using them for 4 years or so, and have no intention of replacing them with another product. Nothing else lives up to your standard Eelectronic Hearing Protection!

Thank you so much for the two pairs of Pro-Ears Predators. [We had the Predators] in time for our Stuntwomen's Association of Motion Pictures/NSSF Tactical2Practical II shooting seminar we held in November for the elite film industry stuntpeople and stunt coordinators. Everyone who attended got a chance to try them and they became the "must-have" of the weekend!

There are a number of companies that make electronic ear protection with amplification. The company I chose was Ridgeline, Inc. because their specifications were superior and their experience in various applications is extensive. I‘m very satisfied and impressed with their product.

Eelectronic Hearing Protection

I bought these based on prior Pro-Ears purchases. Each set that I have bought has been better than the last. I buy them for friends as gifts (my originals are still going strong). I really appreciate the American Made commitment you have; it is my number one purchasing criteria. Your warranty is top notch (I've had to use it once) and your "ears" are the best in Eelectronic Hearing Protection . I wear them proudly on the range and in training.

I would like to thank the person responsible for the fast replacement of the mic covers for my sporting clay muffs. I needed them for competition this weekend and I received the covers today in the mail. Not only do you have a great product, but you stand behind it.

I want to thank you for your excellent customer service and response to my request. American business companies should learn how to take care of their customers like you do! Thank You!!!
