Default Jarhead in Jonesboro

Just found the forum and thought I would drop in on y'all.

A little about myself...

I'm a disabled Marine w/ GWI. During my stay in the Corps, I participated in Operation Desert Shield/Storm. I was an [0351] anti-tank assualtman (primary) / [8531] marksmanship instructor (secondary) but my main function was weapons custodian in the armory.

After 9/11, I went to work in Nuclear Security and an opportunity arose for me to find myself as a member of a Special Operations Team traveling to nuclear power generating facilities around the country helping them develop their defensive strategy and identify weaknesses in their infrastructure.

I intend to acquire my FFL and am considering milling 80% lowers and assembling (manufacturing) AR's with my vast quantity of time to squander. Hopefully I will be able to sell enough to fund my hobby if all goes well so I can enhance my personal collection.

Clear front sight tip on center mass when the trigger is "squozed" usually gets good results with the right DOPE.
