Why the Second Amendment Should Be Promoted In Chicago (or ANY Urban Area)

Opinion While the suburbs could be decisive for the future of the Second Amendment, urban areas may be prime locations for pro-Second Amendment efforts. Chicago – -(AmmoLand.com)- When we talk about the future of the Second Amendment, it is correct to note that the suburbs could be decisive. But there is another area which could be ripe for Second Amendment supporters to make gains – and which could help offset any gains made by former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg and other anti-Seco...

IWI Tavor X95 in .300 Blackout – Gun Review

IWI Tavor X95 in .300 Blackout U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- The bullpup rifle has always had a hard time clicking with the American consumer. While the layout has been around for quite some time, the execution of many a design has failed to attract more than a passing “that’s cool” from end users. All that changed with the introduction of the Tavor SAR from IWI and the subsequent X95, which is the subject of this article.The IWI Tavor X95 is a current generation Israeli military rifle. While there...

How to change markup in content.opf when importing .epub file?

Hi, I'm using Calibre for quite some time now, but recently the publisher of a series changed something inside content.opf. Now, when converting .epup from this particular publisher to -mobi format for my Kindle Paperwhite, the ebook initially opens on the last page. I tracked this down to the following line inside content.opf: Code: As soon as I change the title from "Beginning" to "Start", the ebook opens at the first page. The question now is, can I automate this substitution...

Stuck on 0% Reading Metadata and Adding to Library

Attached is the debug log of the issue i'm experiencing. I purchased a Kindle book from Amazon (.azw file extension). When i attempted to add it to Calibre, the message "Reading Metadata and Adding to Library" was stuck on 0%.

I also want no restrictions on copying text from the book. How can i resolve this? Thank y...

TFB Christmas 2018: Peace And Goodwill To All

Winding down the holiday season is always a bittersweet task. With the big day behind us, most of the suprizes are now unwrapped (and hopefully are also chambered in .308 with a threaded barrel).

The day thou gavest...

...isn’t ended here yet either, but I’m nipping in to send good wishes your way and sharing my owl shelf in this year’s card department. We hosted our usual family Christmas breakfast with three ‘children’ under one roof for once, and it was the mayhem of the olden days. It’s the homemade crackers that do it. Same toys year after year, the wind-up clockwork reindeers, the whoopee cushion, the false teeth and everyone recognising their favourites. We’ve opened presents (there will be no short...

Calibre as Zettelkasten: Links between ebook entries?

I'll evaluate to use Calibre as a "Zettelkasten" (Niklas Luhmann). One principle of the Zettelkasten is to have links between differerent entries. Is it possible to create a link to another book in the metadata comment field? Or is there another option to create something similiar? Perhaps with use of the id or the uuid? Perhaps when copying meta data of a book that you can build a link from that?

azw3 format is full of typos and strange text

I added a non-amazon ebook file to my Kindle Paperwhite (3rd edition), using Calibre. Some of the book is unreadable because of strange text where there should be readable text. The ebook file was not converted to azw from another format, if I remember correctly. Any ideas on this are appreciated, thanks.

Caldwell Precision Turret Rifle Shooting Rest Review

The Clarys review the Caldwell Precision Turret Rifle Shooting Rest. Caldwell Precision Turret Rifle Shooting Rest USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- The Turret was explicitly designed for AR-platform rifles. Conventional shooting rests do not take into account the extended magazines or the pistol grips on AR-rifles. As such, a lot of shooters opted for sandbags, instead of a front rest. They worked…. well, almost; because making precise elevation and windage was problematic. Caldwell Precision Turret ...

Favorite Pen?

Do you have a favorite pen to write with? I have a ridiculously expensive mountblanc ballpoint pen which I call my "nerd bling" but I don't write with it much. Mostly, I prefer using cheap pens so if I lose it it's no big deal. Lately, I've been using the Pentel RSVP ballpoint pen. It has a long clear barrel and after watching a DIY youtube video personalized by putting an insert in the barrel. If you want to watch the video it's in the link below. https://youtu.be/PoWfvt0kHVI
