Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

Default On this day in 1905, Simo Häyhä has was born

On this day in 1905, Simo Häyhä has was born, also known as ‘White Death’.

Fighting in the winter war against the invading Russians, its believed the infamous sniper killed over 500 red army soldiers, making him the deadliest sharpshooter in the world history.

During the end of the war he was shot in the face and permanently disfigured but it didn’t stop him from defending his homeland. He died peacefully in 2002 in his hometown of Hamina.

Remember our heroes!

Iron sights .
He didn't like the idea of the sun reflecting
off of his scope and giving up his position.

He had more confirmed kills than Babe Ruth
had home runs . A snipers sniper .

I think? he used his old bolt action Mosin Nagant he had hanging around his farm? Iron sights but I think someone gave him a scope which he used later on??
He tied up the whole damn Russian Army with their invasion plans.

Add: The Ruskies were probably afraid to stand up and take a piss. It could be their last.

Get a DVD copy of ( The Winter War )....A lot of authentic weapons are used in this story of the Finns fighting the Russians.

The only downside is the movie is in Finnish only with English subtitles.
