Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I'm hoping a bunch of parts hit my door REAL soon next week!!! I'm anxious as hell to start putting my baby together.

Had about an hour to breeze through the local gun show last night. A lot of folks were still setting up, and deals are rarely ever had the first day. Wanted to be set up selling holsters but an out of town swim meet has me otherwise occupied.

Did pick up a really good condition temporary scope. It's an older Tasco and isn't much to look at or brag about, but for $4, it'll get me to the range an make sure the rifle is performing after its all together. The think is surprisingly clear and the reticle is actually quite crisp. This will also let me know if the 3-9x setup is gonna be what I'm looking for.

Made it home from the swim meet in time to hit the show for a couple hours again today. Picked up a couple more goodies and sold a few holsters.

Magpul RVG and a Konus Konuspro 3-10x44IR scope with rings. I'll need a different mount at some point as the rear wouldn't fit over the BUIS, but I think this will be already a million times better than the tasco.

Picked up the new RVG for $15, and the Konuspro for a few boxes of 45 ammo.

Goofed around at the gun show for a couple hours again yesterday after getting back from the meet. Took my son with me just to browse around and see what might be a bargain that the venders didn't want to take home.

Ended up grabbing another scope option to play with. For $20 I couldn't help myself. Company looks to defunct, but the very limited info I found gave it decent reviews a few years back. And at that price I'm not to worried about a warranty.

Thanks, Jon.

Could not pass up the chance to get the blem PSA while they were in stock. I'll grab my RRA lpk at the shop as soon as the lower comes in. I might even be able to shoot this thing before the full winter sets in.
