  1. My buddy just bought an M4-2000 after I tried to steer him away from it for that very reason. Guess we'll have to wait and see if he lucked out with a solid lockup. Also, +1 to the CNC Warrior alignment rod. I got it on sale for like $20 and it's worked like a charm on two cans.
  2. Look into the Specwar 762. Great price, excellent sound reduction, built like a tank, great mounting system, and a lifetime warranty. SilencerCo is discontinuing the Specwar line in favor of the user-serviceable Saker line, which means the Specwar 762 is very affordable right now (I picked mine up for $585).
  3. A purchase I actually made that got me ID'd once was cement glue, bleach tablets and solo cups
  4. - B5 SOPMOD stock - Malkoff 325 lumen E2/Scout head - CNC warrior suppressor alignment rod - ASR suppressor mount and SilencerCo high-temp suppressor cover (got both for free from SiCo) Also, two friends of mine each bought DD MK18 uppers, so while I didn't buy them, I'm the only one with an SBR lower so I definitely get to play with them extensively
  5. Enjoy your stay. If you happen to pass through the Scranton/WB area, I'm down for an impromptu shooting session

    I realize I'm really late to the party here, but there is absolutely no reason not to buy from PSA. Their FN-barreled Premium series is right up there with Colt, LMT, BCM, etc. I can't speak from experience for their nitrided line but reports have been pretty overwhelmingly favorable. My buddy just ordered one of their nitrided 10.5s yesterday that we're planning on putting through its paces on my SBR lower before he decides to suppress it. PSA used to get flack back in the day because they grew too fast and their customer service and QC suffered for it. That just isn't the case anymore.
  7. Picked up a used but like-new Aimpoint PRO for $300 shipped.
  8. Having compared it back-to-back with a VG6 Gamma, Lantac Dragon and SI King Comp, it's pretty damn impressive for 40 year old Soviet tech. It would probably be even more impressive on an AR where the impulse of the carrier wasn't so prominent.
  9. Bought this to keep my Specwar 556K company while it's in form 4 jail
  10. Snagged myself an Aimpoint T1 + RS Regulate mount combo for $525 total

  12. 40gr 1050fps http://www.cci-ammunition.com/products/detail.aspx?use=2&loadNo=0056 I keep looking at suppressors and keep talking myself out of it. If things change legally and I dont have to pay off Uncle for permission absolutely. The HPA - if it passes - has a provision in it to refund the $200 tax stamp for suppressors purchased after October of 10/22/15. In addition to that, SilencerCo is offering $200 in store credit on any of their cans purchased between 2/1/17 and 4/30/17.

    From the album: wtfbbq

    Final configuration before the suppressor goes on. Still working on perfecting the rifle for myself: - chopped and stippled the KAC vert grip - MS4 sling - Ergo grip (like it a lot more than the BCM grip) - B5 SOPMOD stock - LH safety - Ambi mag release - Gamma 556 brake (this will be getting replaced with the suppressor mount though)
  14. I have an LCP, LC9 and LC9S. The LC9S is a great overall carry gun. VASTLY improved (and I'd even say "nice") trigger over the LC9, decent capacity, 100% reliable with factory ammo and has a small print, even when pocket carrying. It's also surprisingly accurate out to 25yds. I also have a Kimber Ultra Carry HD in .45 but even with the extra heft of the stainless steel frame, the recoil difference between that and the LC9S is night and day.
  15. For direct CNS hits it doesn't really matter what kind of cavity it creates on the way. In the event that the round doesn't hit the CNS or some vital organ, a larger wound cavity will cause more bleeding. Any good expanding SD round will more or less do the same job of accomplishing that while at the same time reducing the risk of a complete pass through and hitting an unintended target. The ability to take accurate follow-up shots if needed is more important than the otherwise inconsequential differences between a Gold Dot and and an HST or a 9mm and a .45*. If you're considering a compact or subcompact for EDC, recoil differences between calibers will be much more noticeable and will affect controllability. If you're considering carrying a full-sized frame, the capacity difference between calibers also starts to become larger. In either scenario, 9mm has a fairly large advantage. For that reason, I consider 9mm to be the best choice for SD purposes. *My personal opinion. Take with a grain of salt.
  16. Just ordered for my 10.5" SBR. Now begins the wait.
  17. Also have a Glock that isn't my absolute favorite handgun, but one area where they really shine (especially in 9mm) is that low bore axis. Beautiful for follow up shots.
  18. Is that a problem with recent lots or all GT? I have a decent amount of it but it was all purchased a few years ago
  19. The Tavor feels like you're firing a plastic rear-heavy VCR with bad ergonomics and a shitty trigger. My buddy has one and regrets buying it.
  20. Glad to hear she's okay. Kinda felt sick for you despite the fact that it wasn't even my firearm lol
