He did alright. I was going to give him a hard time about being scope-dependent and weak sauce, but he got his little suitcase carbine to hit at 200 and shut me the hell up.

I'm not scared that he's going to be be bigger 'n' stronger than me some day soon. I'm worried that he'll start out-shooting me before I'm ready for that. Trying to stave off Father Time for a little while longer.
"How we burned in the prison camps later thinking: what would things have been like if every security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if during periods of mass arrests people had simply not sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, ham- mers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand. . . . The Organs [police] would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers . . . and notwithstanding all of Stalin‘s thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt." - A.
