The Colt LESOCOM, the closest thing to the military M4A1 a civilian can get? Readers of this blog (both of you) know there is no shortage of AR-style carbines on the market these days.
Yeah, and what else is new? Well, while all ARs might look alike upon first blush, it’s actually been a matter of “close but no cigar” if you wanted a genuine Colt M4 like those used by the military. That’s because, for the first time since the introduction of the iconic and standard-setting M4 in the 1990s, Colt Defense is offering a new rifle — they call it the LESOCOM — to law enforcement and civilian shooters like you and me. And son of a gun if this thing isn’t as close in configuration to the M4A1 military carbine as anything you’ve ever seen. The Colt LESOCOM rifle is ideal for any law enforcement officer, marksman or hunter looking for a firearm that is most similar to what is used by the military.
The only thing it’s missing is a light dusting of desert tan Krylon spray paint, and that part’s up to you. Basically, the LESOCOM’s longer barrel length and semi-automatic fire controls. The da vinci code hindi dubbed hd movie download full. And that’s not too darn much.

Wednesday, May 23rd, 2007 Joe Henry’s Second Anti- Disc Civilians Drops September 11th, 2007 Acclaimed Artist and Producer Readies Most Alluring, Artfully Direct Disc Yet Van Dyke Parks, Bill Frisell, Patrick Warren and Greg Leisz Lend Talents To Henry’s Personally and Politically-Informed Tenth Studio Album Joe Henry – the veteran singer, songwriter, guitarist and acclaimed producer – will release his second Anti- disc, Civilians, on September 11th, 2007. The twelve song set, which arguably stands as the most alluring and artfully direct album of his storied ten album tenure, was recorded and mixed in his home studio and counts the talents of guest pianist Van Dyke Parks on the brilliantly poignant “Civil War” and the emotive, lilting “I Will Write My Book.” With jazz guitarist Bill Frisell, pianist, arranger and chamberlain organist Patrick Warren, guitarist and dobro master Greg Leisz, bassist Dave Piltch and longtime drummer Jay Bellerose, Henry has assembled an ideal cast for his latest disc. And from the blues-inflected, “Time Is A Lion,” or the memorable love-torn ballad “Scare Me To Death,” to the album’s centerpiece “Our Song,” Civilians finds the troubadour balancing sharp personal and political observations with assurance and sophistication. On the latter, Henry wryly and soulfully chronicles an overdeveloped, insensitive and downright pushy America as he imagines bumping into baseball icon Willie Mays at a Scottsdale, Arizona Home Depot. “It’s no accident that the song falls where it does, in the middle of the record,” Henry admits. “It’s sort of the hub of the wheel.
The tone of the song began to influence the way I heard all the others.” But if that song and the aforementioned “Civil War” are ripe with what Henry calls “political undertones and overtones,” he insists they weren’t deliberate. “I have never sat down with the idea of writing a quote-unquote political record, or even a political song, for that matter.
The process of writing for me is the process of discovering what I’m writing about; and I never really know where I’ll wind up. And in this case, I see in retrospect that the times in which we live have subverted the process.
