  1. Some military service related health issues/injuries set me back for a few years, gave upon VA, daughter became an MD, between her and an old time doc, got me turned around. Still issues, yet can at least deal with them now.
  2. Thought what the heck, when 1st born sent photos of Liberated Saigas from warehouse at beginning of Gulf war. Thought is that the crappy $200+ shotgun I seen at local gun store?? Then ban lifted, days you talked to guys like Tony, Tom, Shannon, etc on the phone. Self imported 8rders from New Zealand, $100 was cheap,. Always patiently waiting for new products
  3. Depending on education/specialty, usually 1 to 1.5 years for every year of education. When already active, then course/education is greatly pushed, long as it fits into service requirement schedule. Your son's situation is close to my nephews, except he already is ROTC/government scholarship. After my service, I was a bit lost, went to collage and found myself helping the ROTC program with field training. Had officer send me to the board for a scholarship, a government agency offered me a job at same time, I left school for them, choices. Not always the best.
  4. Ok, each branch has it's own little quirks, a good recruiter would get him the info, or the overseeing Officer of the program. Different yet give you idea what can be done. My nephew, is graduating in Dec. Went to college on "Baseball Scholarship", now entering dental school via Army in January. Will go to "Officers" 6 week boot camp, and other required trainings during his summer months when not enrolled. 4 year school equals 6 years military. Plus Officer in charge of program, has started process to get him reimbursed for expenses not covered by scholarship while he earned his Bach. of Science. That is a rough estimated cost, calculated by military. He didn't ask for that, it's what can be done. Could go on, have had other family members and friends go to Service Academies, most went right into specialty outside education, yet did summer service/training, if non summer or year long education required. Medical is a priority. 72 year old uncle went the Air Force Academy route, Air Force chose med school. he became surgeon, they also chose internships, some private, some military. He chose to stay in, yet after retirement, volunteered and was accepted for duty where needed the last decade. In Germany, last 3 years doing initial reconstruction surg. God Speed for your son.
  5. Custom built 1911 CCO. Due to hand damage all controls fitted for my use. Wood grips

    Jury Duty

    Been called on twice, been excused twice. By prosecutor and by defense. No body likes me. lol
  7. Have had to fit every Korean 20rder I've gotten, doesn't matter the AK. Dependability has been hit or miss, watch for internal rust. Do really miss the Romanian 20rders, got a dozen back in the day. Prefer to have 20rder in the Ak, especially the pistol versions. Got a few Magpul's 20rders for around $10 during holiday season. Been reliable.
  8. Small rural Sheriffs Dept. I've been on reserve/training supervisor status for awhile. Weekends, holidays, vacations, and special events. Issued Class III soft. Get great discounts for class IV plates and we received new surplus carriers, so we used our personal gear allowance and our own cash to upgrade a few items. Cumberbun plate, been qualified and approved with my Kebs AK for a few years, so switched it over from AR platform. Spent a couple days training, for those who lug this armor daily, I salute you. Hydration back sure beats the canteen. It's a young man's game, yet good to have when high risk situations. (meth labs) are our biggest problem. Glad I've lost a bunch of weight and got back in shape. This would have done me in a couple years ago. LOL Dept. patches removed per regulation for private post. I'll reduce the ammo load down to half of what's pictured. I just wanted to see if I could do it. I did, now, nothing to prove.
  9. Picked up 2 Sig P938's. SAS and Equinox versions. Deal was to good to pass up. A micro was not on my list. Really enjoyed shooting these mini's. Put all ammo through without a flaw. Defense loads to FMJ. 115,124 and 147 grain. Put the Hogue grip and belt clip on the Equinox. Didn't like the clip, so took it off.
  10. Picked up a couple Arex Rex Zeros in FDE. Full size and compact. Full size compares to Sig P226, compact to Sig P229. Quality of fit, finish and function is superb. 300+ rds in each, not a hiccup. Accuracy and quick fallow up is great. About a 1/3 less in price compared to my Sigs, plus mags are around 25 bucks compared to $40. Have the cock and lock feature with manual safety like 1911, other wise all functions same as Sig DA/SA with decocker

    Yugo PAP M92

    Really like it. It's the rivet style, could use nut and bolt. Had a couple slip over with allen screw that AIM sold, yet didn't hold up well (plastic) and slipped on other Aks I got, so switched over to the solid rivet. Trigger finger quick release

    USA made Ak's

    Yes, building ourselves, we get what we want or at our skill or tool level. Just seen many reviews of reputable persons that have had major/dangerous parts/metal failures. Maybe it was a push for pre election production numbers. A guy gets one that shoots 100's and 100's of rounds, next guy's literally blows apart from metal stress.
