Apparently there was not the response from local level expected during the 2023 and I have been getting emails and phone calls about when I plan to return to my local EMA, FEMA and GEMA volunteer position as our county didn't fare well in the Annual State & National SET or IPAWS response to the Presidential Level Test of WEA alerts. They expected responses that the Wireless Electronic Alerts hit local broadcast/cable television, commercial radio, cellular systems, etc and per normal it was mid day on a Wednesday. Our tornado siren tests are monthly at 11:00 am unless we are having bad weather then they don't set them off and scare the natives.

For almost two decades I always went to a siren where local school resource officers or fire stations were not close enough to hear to add sirens that went off to the list and ensure all were reported at least quarterly. It's two years now that about half the counties sirens didn't get a report as I would usually call friends who worked near ones we didn't get reports and make a call on local repeaters and manage to get most sites reported monthly and the ones we missed would get the next month or two based on how long it had been since it was confirmed.

Turns out like before I joined majority of volunteers will not miss work to participate in a simulated emergency test and why the AARL 48 hour test begins at noon on Friday then ends noon Sunday so volunteers and comtestors could participate without taking a sick/vacation day. While this years IPAWS was supposed to augment this year's goal of:
FEMA is implementing four strategic priorities for the FY 2023 RCPGP: housing, equity, climate resilience, and readiness, with an emphasis on the needs of disadvantaged communities
I don't think that is the real goal just the liberal spin of saying they allocated over 35 million dollars on equipment when writing up the IPAWS scope of goals beyond making everyone's cells beep and interrupt their television show.

Have gathered my info in past from home (tornado siren 1/2 mile from house and 3/4 miles from work), truck and work more than EMA or hospital.aCan monitor all bands/all modes to roust hams to help but I passed that job off because felt others could do it better. Turns out a monthly siren report has not been filed since went on "inactive list". S.O. and P.D. is supposed to dispatch an officer to every site then 911 or EMA director send but got used to volunteers doing it. We never got any confirmations via LEOs via radio just Hams on local repeater and personal friends via telephone and now its almost two years without a report for GEMA, FEMA or ARRL SETs locally from Mayberry.

Told EMA director I could do the forms from home shack (home and work are both ARRL OES status stations) just like did from work shack or even work truck had I known nobody picked up sending reports. My county issued public service radio has not had the encryption codes updated for two years so about all it does is monitor the non encrypted fire department "talk around" channel and learned it's not compatible with many systems in the county anymore period and majority were already pulled and sold at auction. Told him my public service radio is too big to move, I can't bring to EMA whenever they update the encryption codes and he said have new radios where if its serial number is in system gets encryption code updates automatically.

He said if I will see the monthly and quarterly state reports were filed along with the biannual FEMA reports will send me one of the new handhelds programmed for and compatible with every emergency service from small municipal F.D.s to P.D.s, hospital, EMA, GEMA and more that they got in the grant that was used to fund latest IPAWS. Expected to get a new generation Motorola but instead got a L3 Harris XL 200P which is basically a PRC-152 in a smaller less featured package but still a lot of radio.

Sent spare battery, mobile cradle to mount in truck or shack, remote speaker-mic and other accessories. It even tethers to my existing 3M Peltor headset on high gear helmet and my in mask microphone along with linking to items like my new Walker 2.0 hear thru ear buds and cell phone. This radio is designed to link emergency services with military and has all but the military features that let this radio into encrypted military systems and there frequency hopping "self healing" features that allow field radios to all migrate to a new frequency if a repeater drops or frequency using is being jammed. All the LEO/FD/Government Emergency capabilities with ability for military to link if they need. I am stunned as long as I have been out of the loop nobody picked up the reports but since most data is collected on Wednesday and if volunteer works in ATL they are out of local loop if run to car at 11am or 2pm.

Full-Spectrum. High-Performance. Future-Primed.
The XL 200P delivers leading-edge advanced connectivity across VHF, UHF, 700/800 MHz and broadband LTE. Because emergencies respect no boundaries, GPS, Bluetooth® and Wi-Fi® come standard. From wireless updates to a personal Wi-Fi hotspot, the XL 200P keeps you working so you stay focused on what’s important.
Extreme Audio
Challenging environments are a given. Combining a 1.5/4.0 watt max amplifier and dual speakers with advanced noise cancellation, the XL 200P comes in crystal clear. On the fireground, Bluetooth integration with the leading Self-Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA) manufacturer improves in-mask audio and elevates communications quality.
Rugged and Tough
Engineered for top performance in severe environments, this ruggedized multiband meets tough MIL-SPEC standards for contamination by fluids and flammability. The XL 200P features a glove-friendly A-B-C-D switch with both front and top LCD displays in an ergonomic, streamlined profile that minimizes bulk on your belt. Did we mention the 10-hour all shift long-lasting battery?

Key Benefits
  • Multiband with built-in LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS
  • Loud and clear audio with advanced noise cancellation
  • Stringent MIL-SPEC standards met
  • Voice and data encryption secured
Trust the predictable XL 200Pi in unpredictable situations.

  • P25 interoperability with multiband capabilities
  • Advanced audio excellence for onsite noise challenges
  • Secure voice and data encryption
Asked him about the old mobile radio and he said it's not used and to toss it or keep. Think I can capture new codes and use my Motorola programming tools to get more of its functionality back. For those of you that think the cops using P-25 radios to make your life difficult here is a basic P-25 jammer you can build using a child's toy can pick up for ten bucks on fleabay. There are more powerful ways to break down big chunks of P-25 systems but if your that much of an electronic hobbiest you are already beyond entry level but if a entry teams radios go loopy about the time they hit your front porch it's going to possibly cause them to fall back till figure out some sort of comms. Since inception of P-25 have said it only stops morons or people unwilling to buy scanners out of Japan and downloading software from Russia from scanning or interfering. Same with cell phones, saw a picture of a hams mobile install today (have to decide if using two or three radios in new truck) and noticed he still had two nice condition old school Nokia cell phones in cradles. Only reason for that is to scan cellular when it can't make a 5G or 4G connection and falls back to 2G. My 4G and 5G devices still have a 2G control page in settings to use in areas with old systems like Gaza currently and 3rd world countries.

In doctors office in Atlanta parked at street level in four story parking deck with full time security in the building (main entrance & secondary public entrance) plus a roving officer in parking deck phone went crazy telling me that my trucks motion/bump sensor was going off. Before I could get to truck it had buzzed two more times and quit. Got to truck, nobody there but noticed this item was slid almost fully out of the receiver and pin with cutter pin that keeps it from shaking loose were laying on cement.

KIMG0039_copy_1915x875.jpg


KIMG0037_copy_1908x638.jpg


Went by security guard at door so fast my loose shirt that covers my EDC stuff was flapping and saw my SIG 1911 TACOPS and other assorted items on belt. Caught view of young white man in black hoodie running out of deck and down sidewalk. Security officer sees me bring my wife to that office every month in her wheelchair and when I showed her the bumper guard almost fully removed and two pins on pavement said someone was trying to steal it and my bump sensors had gone off three times and each time the horn beeps twice.

She got on radio and parking lot guard said was on the way but had been helping a vendor in the loading dock door which is bottom level of parking deck. Both agreed because of what item was and thief was white odds are his truck is in their parking deck and he will come back for his truck. By time left they had already pulled a video capture photo off the camera system and said they will be watching for him to return to get vehicle and had backed up video DVR to before he pulled hoodie over his head. If he is parked in facility he has three Georgia Blue Card security agents waiting.

I slid it back to position I like, replaced pin and walked back in building with big signs posted everywhere saying "weapons free facility, no firearms". All noticed I was wearing armor, saw my pistol, three ten round mags racked on weak side, key fob, flashlight, phone and multitiool. Not one word about entering with my pistol was said, know they have noticed in past as often bring my double stack 10mm which is like trying to hide a cement block under your shirt. Good old Georgia, if act human security doesn't care if you carry a gun I'm ther weapoms free facility. If dude comes back they have put two officers in parking deck and have the guy in video room on alert.

Guy trying to steal the bumper guard off my truck? Should have known when horn went off first time to quit messing with it.

Getting steel yard to cut and bend steel to extend my rear bumper guard from 12" wide to 36" wide is a five to seven week wait then getting my steel fabricator to weld it all up. It will get done but for now found this so had it put on back. 2" mild steel tubing and 36" long plus has two steps to get into the tool box. Wife liked it so much she had me order her one in polished stainless steel for her truck.

GoRhinoBumperGuard001.jpg


Still not exactly what I want but good start that a little work with some steel from our inventory, chop saw, welder and time can't make both rear guards into the burly options I want. Like to be able to put truck in 4WD low, stick in reverse and stab the pedal to make me some room to escape if boxed in or take a solid 20 mph hit from rear and only have bumper guard to repair/replace.

KIMG0026_copy_1627x1296_copy_1231x1062.jpg


This has now saved truck damage twice. First was driving myself to outpatient at Shepard Spinal in ATL about 4:30 am when big dog or small deer ran between cars in right lane and I dead centered it with cruise set on 84 mph. Felt it hit, truck kind of bobble as it wadded up as front engine, mid transmission and transfer case skid plates skipped over it and it hit the smaller read bumper protector as truck spitnig out rear and some small four door import coupe hit remains and I saw its bumper cover and grill busted all to crap when replayed video later.

KIMG0028_copy_1648x1170.jpg


Coming home from my surgery wife wanted to make two stops and she wasn't used to truck being almost a foot longer and was going about 5 mph when hit a 8" concrete support that holds handicap parking sign so everyone that bumps sign does not knock it down. I was still a bit goofy from anesthesia and made one of those remarks wish I hadn't but only damage was dried blood from earlier that morning and some yellow paint on the front end guard. 3/16"AR 387 steel tube and plate is tough and wife went through a drive through car wash at our interstate exit to get the nasty remains of dog/deer whatever off and even the yellow paint from concrete pole came off and it has zero damage. Had been worried it may through something hit across hood into windshield but it sucked entire animal (big enough it was thicker than trucks ground clearance) under the truck and not on piece of plastic or aluminum trim damaged. Had we been in my 1993 Dakota the factory steel bumper would have been enough. These new trucks are pure plastic and beer can thin aluminum so if plan to bump anything or someone bump you bolt a couple thousand dollars of steel to all four sides.

Oddly had two different cops approach me about my kits this week. One at doctors office (have post certified police officers working security all doors and posted no firearms allowed. Except for one time in say fifty plus visits, labs every two months and doc whenever numbers move, had a wardrobe malfunction and officer asked me to take duty pistol to truck but not backup in small of back, never bother about my kit) on way out cop from out of county but adjoining city municipality asked about my vest. Told him it was a Safariland NIJ 3a with four inches of side overlap and fits to just above belt (normally I like belly button so doesnt bind when sit but this facility makes me nervous thus up-kit a bit heavy) which is not the current thinnest NIJ 3a Safariland uses with Hardwire label but the previous thinnest NIJ 3a they offered under Protech name and both are still military/LEO only. Everytime I find a stunning armor company inside of five years they are owned by Safariland.

This kit has Thorshield carrier to protect from electric discharge weapons be it stun gun to tasers and Level 2 stab panel over ballistic armor so someone talented with a sharp knife does not slice it up like a professional butcher. Has a Protech (military/LEO only) 3/8"×8"×10" special threat plate front side rated to stop all high threat handgun rounds, 5.7×28 and 7.62×39 lead core ammo but not ×39 steel core ammo but ICW with soft armor is likely to stop more, rounds named are stand alone for the plate. It's a compound curve plate that's very comfortable and knowing it's going to keep cheap AK ammo out of heart and lungs is comforting. Only reason he noticed it I didn't have my top two buttons fastened and could see the black carrier peeking out with subdued grey Safariland printed in small letters. He asked what I was wearing under my big loose unbuttoned flannel shirt so owned my flagrant violation of "no firearms" rules. Without sweeping shirt tails open for the video camera did open a tad making sure back was to cameras and gave him a verbal run down of what could not be seen.

Has a SIG 1911 STX in 45 acp from SIG Custom Shop with their basic function/reliability package, 11° target crown, 3.25 pound trigger along with anything my personal SIG pistol smith felt necessary. Already had tritium sights, huge magwell funnel (hand fitted, opened up a tad and polished mirror smooth), ambi safety, stunning finish but removed the beautiful but super slick STX grip panels replacing with pair of the ultra sharp and grippy TACOPS grip panels and ten round McCormick magazine. Was carrying in polymer Safariland Level 1 retention holster on a Nexbelt Bond Carbon Black, 1 3/8" Strap, EDC Belt:
When you’re doing conceal and carry – the last thing you want to get out with a belt that says you’re carrying. Our new Bond belt is designed for the business professional whose dress attire is a suit. Whether you're a lawyer, detective, doctor, or bodyguard, rest assured this is the most comfortable, beautifully crafted ratchet edc belt out there today.
  • Stiff Carbon Black stamped leather strap to take on the extra weight of a protection device fits up to 50” waist - won't rollover
  • Strap backing is made of nylon to resist sweat from penetrating the outer belt surface
  • Stainless hex screws hold the buckle together replacing pins – patent pending
  • Buckle clasp has set screws for an extra secure hold
  • The Spring/Magnet based trigger for longer life
  • Buckle size 1 5/8” x 2 5/16” – Belt strap width is 1 3/8”
The Nexbelt EDC belts rock and now own three, two in 1 3/8" (have just enough CCW accessories that wont fit through 1.5" belt) and one in 1.5" for kit accessories and belt loops that it will thread through. One in black, brown and "carbon" finish, average retail is $75 each but worth every dime. Had key fob with work keys ring, house key ring and truck key ring in forward of holster (less in front pockets happier I am) AG Russel fixed blade knife in small of back, then a thin "mini IFAK", two AA cell flashlight, two Safariland mag pouches (ten round McCormicks) with open fronts so odd shape bullet tips don't catch plus series of hard plastic rollers so mags slide out exactly as have tension set plus a third Ghost magnetic mag holder with "wings" that is fastest carry system I have found to get a mag in hand with eight round Wilson mag plus two eight round Wilson's in back left pocket. Mentioned that I was wearing Tier I Short Bark PUGs with dual ballistic panels over thighs (he mentioned the original Secure Planets which are more comfortable but less ballistic protection saved a lot of lives when he was deployed in Gulf 2 after stepping on IEDs or taking brunt of a grenade below the waist) told him I had tested Short Bark with two pair of panels in pocket instead of one and they stop 9mm) cop was impressed had a covert kit that equaled or exceeded his overt kit in protection level and accessories that had I buttoned one more button he may not have noticed armor.

He griped about his issue vest (overt with six P Mags racked) had 10"×12" SAPI NIJ 3a hard plates with Kevlar plate backers so had to wear an overt rifle plate carrier with all the bulk but was not issued rifle plates. Said he had M4 in patrol vehicle (had worked night shift before pickingupp morning 1/2 shift at medical facility) Told him would be back February for my 60 day labs, if interested have pair of 7/8"×10"×12" NIJ 3 rated plates that stop 7.62×51 M80, 7.62×39 lead, ×39 steel core but not 5.56 M193 or M855 unless have NIJ 2 soft armor under them and only weigh 2.5 pounds each. He is guard on duty almost every day over past eighteen months (I always hit lab at 8:30 so can come home to eat and stay on schedule with meds) and is in process of retiring from PD (less than year till full benefits kick in) to going to go full time at the medical facility. Asked me how much for the plates and told him fairly sure I paid $90 still in wrappers never opened or used. My guess is department they came from were never issued same reason I never wore as a 2.5 pound plate that won't stop 5.56, have 1.9 pound plates that float in water that will stop 5.56 M193, M855 and 7.62×51 M80. Going to dig them out and if receipt taped on them does say $90 each going to let him have the set for $90 since he let's me break the facility rules.

Today wife had me take her last batch of Christmas Cards to mailbox about 11:30 am to beat mailman who arrives between 12:30 and 2:00 pm. Put on my current "mailbox kit" which is overt kit with Safarilands lightest NIJ 2 soft armor (thin as most stab panels) with 7/8"×10"×12" SAPI cut NIJ 3+ plates that weigh 2.2 pounds each. Has IFAK, three spare magazines and weighs under 16 pounds fully loaded with phone and radio (radio has GPS and "man down" button any ham with compatable radio could render aid getting help. Picked up 13.7" Noveske 6.8 spc II with pinned KX5 Flaming Pig flash can bringing barrel to 16.1", Streamlight TLR4-IR with choice of super bright white light or I.R. laser aiming based on direction toggle switch. Its topped with an Obi Wan Nairobi SIG Romeo 4T and light weight SIG 3x swing up, Franklin binary trigger and single point sling for trek to mailbox.

As hit the driveway from patio noticed one of the deputies turn out of church parking lot heading toward town and just before I got to end of driveway he was turning in. Put my cards in box (our mailbox is even "postmaster approved" 1/4" AR 400 steel as tired of replacing as people leaving convenience store pitches first empty bottle at it, now it's a pile of broken brown glass under it) walked to his window and he said they had noticed past year or so when I went to mailbox had overt kit with suppressed SBR or rifle in hand or soft kit and carrying a suppressed pistol in hand. Told him going through health issues, back surgeries, cancer so have to stay home unless in hospital and some days back hurts too much for full rifle kit and long gun so wear NIJ 3a soft kit and carry a SIG 2022 TACOPS in 9mm with Osprey 9 can, 2022 TACOPS in 40 Smith with Osprey 45 can or SIG 1911 TACOPS with TiRant can based on mood.

He asked more about rifle carrying today so handed him a mag to compare 6.8 spc II 110 grain Accubond to his 5.56 55 grain M193. When realized my rifle had double the payload of his M4 ammo, binary trigger able to spit bullets about fast as his select fire plus 3x magnifier with BDC in 4T so could work distant targets easier if need than his 1x Eotech and swing out of way for CQB asked if he could look at it so popped it off sling, cleared mag and round in chamber then handed to him. He loved the optic mentioned was same setup some Deltas and SAS were running (till they get 4T Pros) he asked cost and had some sticker shock. Asked why I kitted up for mailbox every single day and said first day I didn't would be the day had some issue on side of road with looney driver or neighbor. Handed my rifle back and asked how loud it was without suppressor compared to my 5.56 SBR with can carry when mood strikes if had to light it up and pointed to my Walker 2.0 electronic hear through ear buds. Said not loud to me but anyone downrange is going to think an A10 chain gun has opened up when 13.7" 6.8 barrel with flash can go ripping through a 300 to 400 rpm burst if required. He asked what I thought about the binary trigger so said for most is better than select fire. Flip to binary and every time tap the trigger it spits two rounds almost instantly, can hold trigger back and fire second round on release or go to feathering it and put 300 rpm aimed fire downrange.

He said his goodbyes then was going to try backing out on our blind hill so told him to turn around in yard and pull out or may get killed. He said last week they busted the motorcycle that always comes over hill pegged out at 100+ mph at 110 and a lady in a Suburban Facebooking at 95 mph in out 35 mph zone. Told him that is why we as neighbors have been requesting to point of nagging them to step up their speed enforcement for years and if want to hide in between trucks in my yard instead of wide open church parking lot to feel free. Found it odd to have two cops ask about my armor since Tuesday so still have few more days to get more to ask in weeks time if leave house and do have to go to ATL surgical center Monday where any new nurse in pre-op usually asks about armor when helping me get into surgical "half gown" as always get to keep my pants. Always have 380 in pocket holster front right pocket and more than once when wake up from anesthesia and moving from table to wheel chair see outline of my pocket pistol on flouriscope display like a joke, surgeon likes to show new team members I always slip a gun into surgical unless they take my pants.

Rifle I mentioned above have pretty much decided is the best overall "all purpose" rifle build I have ever done but have one change coming. Am going to remove the milspec stock and buffer and try running the new KAK "mini milspec" buffer and stock that drops overall length collapsed from 32" to 30.5" as every inch matters when stowing but length of pull is still plenty for my frame. Cop yesterday was surprised when told him it was a legal length rifle and not an SBR as most are used to handling 16" barrels with muzzle device added, not 13.7" plus pinned device.

13.7" Noveske barrel with Noveske KX3 pinned is 16.0958" from bolt face to end of device, LWRC 9130 lobster tail bolt with dual extractor springs, Colt full auto carrier, Vseven Improved Cam Pin, MGI/Hydra Rate Reduction Buffer, Tubbs flatwire buffer spring, Franklin Binary Trigger (tuned to 3.50 pound pull, if make one mistake ruin a $400 trigger), SIG Romeo 4T trigger, SIG 3x swing up magnifier, Streamlight TLR-4 bright as sun white light or I.R. laser aiming site that pairs perfect with my PVS-14. Swing down magnifier and with the tactical reticle own 200 and under yards, especially CQB and with magnifier up and in BDC mode where have 2 MOA, 1 MOA to 1/2 MOA dots can shoot sub MOA groups to 250 yards (rifle shoots 5/8 MOA at 100 yards with my test scope) and minute of man to 800 yards (longest range have shot this build was 600 yards and was ringing their 12" round plate 10 for 10 after three shots for spotter to get me on center of plate) so feel sure it's good to 800.
KIMG0068_copy_2080x1017.jpg


Very simple looking build from right side, can't even see the Streamlight TLR-4. I bought the SIG 4T kit with 4x magnifier initially but the 4x magnifier is long and heavy, swapped to the "lightweight 3x" (SIG have two 3x magnifiers) and the Juliet 3x is a bit crisper but almost as heavy and long as the 4x. The 4x and another Romeo 4T landed on a 14.7" White Oak build which is a magnitude better past 300 yards but if going long hope to have an 18" barrel and scope instead of dot.
KIMG0060_copy_2080x1029.jpg


32" OAL with stock collapsed. When my KAK dealership is finalized and get my first order placed intend to have at least four of the "mini milspec" buffer kits and stocks coming so this rifle drops to 30.125" collapsed as I am always looking to save an inch here or there without compromising function of legality. At least three amnesty braced pistols now SBRs will get the full KAK mini milspec stock setups to replace their braces to make more functional but keep stowed length same asdelared OAL on ATF forms. My guess is the amnesty filers are their target buyers for the new stock and buffer setup.
KIMG0065_copy_2080x946.jpg


Measuring from outside is not accurate but have a polymer rod with scribed marks and numbers use to confirm my barrel length and not have some ATF or other enforcement agency say barrel is 15.975" and decide to make a federal case of it. I make sure bolt is closed and lugs locked then drop rod down bore till hits bolt face and measure to end of barrel or pinned device.
KIMG0064_copy_1936x1101.jpg


Could have gone with a Battle Arms Development 4" buffer which have on below 6.8 and look how much I had to trim a KAK Shockwave Pistol Brace to get it to 4". OAL on this 6.8 spc II is 23" with suppressor adapter. Trimmed three sides to 4.25" which can get to 4" but wanted enough meat left around top rear slot for straps making it useful (converted an old shoulder rig into a swing up concealed carry device that needs both strap slots to hold SBR in place under strong arm which swivels up onto shoulder perfectly from under sport coat so have a "real gun" if opposing force is wearing armor plus left a bit more material around mounting screw for strength) for it's original strap on brace design and with my custom shoulder rig.


Compare the KAK Shockwave as ships below to trimmed above. Plan is to trim the nice fat stock with good cheek weld on rifle enough that it closes to 1.375" shorter than it does now for OAL of 30.125" when stowed.


New KAK "mini milspec" buffer. Instead of their mini milspec stock going to hack off the front of existing stock (the great cheek weld is reason they are so popular)
MINIMILSPEC_23__21425_copy_1280x1086.png


MINIMILSPEC_19__38924_copy_1280x1108.png

Notice below there is over an inch of stock waiting for my table saw to hack off and get the full length savings of the mini milspec buffer on my favorite "all purpose" rifle at the moment. Give me a year and will build something that is same size or smaller and out performs current favorite. Why I enjoy building so much, can keep building till have a fleet of better than OEM options laying close at hand.
