This weeks article is another guest article by Dan McNeil. This one much less controversial than his previous articles, and a tribute. He wrote this in May of 2014.
I lost a best friend last week. After 11 years, our Yorkie passed on.
He’d been fading for a year, his passing was expected, and we knew it would be sad. But I thought it would be bearable. Continue reading Loss of a dog, no a friend
Below is a link to the West Freeway Church of Christ near Fort Worth church shooting (12/29/2019), it has multiple zoom ins and replays so specific areas of the church can be seen during the shooting and immediately afterwards.
This is not Monday quarterbacking, just my analysis (as a church security team leader for 6 years) that will save lives at your church.
Important points that I noted:
Security knew there was an issue, that is why they had several people on that side if the sanctuary watching him. They knew he had a fake beard when he came in.

Back in 2015 I first saw the “Jack” lower by Sharps brothers. Back then I thought “I’ve got to build me one of those” and thus my quest began.
I try to wait and buy parts only when on sale, however I do fail at that. In May 2019 I still did not have all the parts I wanted to complete this build so I gave in and ordered the final parts at retail.
During the years following my finding the Jack lower, I purchased it, and scanned the internet for build ideas, looks at parts that would fit what I envisioned my rifle to look like. Ideas came and went. I took screen shots of numerous builds to give me better ideas of what others had done, what I thought looked good and what was good for them but not for me.
