Oh, that is good. I suppose even the team at CAI could screw up an AR.

But FF and WOC, building an AR is REALLY straightforward. Each spring and detent goes into a specific place. If you can look at the pics, you can build one.

Well, when I read the threads I usually can't figure out what they are talking about. It's just a thought in my head, to build an AR. It appears to be more money than I have to be sinking into building one right now. I'll just be happy with my two handguns. I think I am wanting too much too fast.

Can anyone answer this question for me? C3Shooter? Cane?

Hornady Critical Defense ammunition eliminates clogging with the use of the patented Flex Tip bullet. Upon entering soft tissue, the tip swells and imparts equal pressure across the entire circumference of the bullet cavity. The result is unrivaled bullet mushroom expansion and performance every single time.

From what I've read, this is true for the old JHP designs. The new and better ones supposedly rely on liquid (wet tissue) to expand.

No comment on the Hornady but read a lot of mixed review on it. I'd stick with my HST and Ranger T's

Thank you. I understand it now. I just may have to get me some of those for Maggie. I think she'd like holding some of those rounds in her cylinder.

If people wear ear plugs to sleep and those earplugs are so good they block out absolutely all noise, how do they hear their alarm clock to wake up in the morning?

They don't hear it. The spouse, not wearing the ear plugs has to kick them in the ass to get up.

On the rare occasion that I need an alarm clock, it's not a problem for me.
