Yes, an excellent deal in retail. Other AR's may cost less, building may require fitting and swapping, but if you want a 100% Colt it won't get any cheaper. A new Colt AR depreciates slowly.

You hit it on the head, I am afraid. Asbestos... The early morning mesothelioma commercials... I wonder how many c***sucking lawyers are rubbing their hands anticipating class action on lead.

Quoting the article:In 6 months dropping 180 lbs. How much does he weigh now? Was he super morbidly obese from the get-go? (The article puts in hackwriter's doublespeak: "hefty") And most...

Reflexively you start turning your wrist inward with the inward trigger finger motion. Keeping the wrist steady and pulling with only the trigger finger is not natural to us. The faster you go, the...

It is true. It is a basic fact about dog breeds. If you deny it, you simply don't know dogs.
Is that a fact? Never heard of it.

Probably twisting the gun to the left while pulling the trigger in a hurry. (Given that you are right handed) If the rear sight is adjustable, you can go back and forth, depending on the drill. If...

Bill Crosby once addressed a black audience on those pseudo-African names, IIRC. I wish a Native American would reach out to us to please stop giving our children tribal names... The Dakotas and the...

Aluminum is fine, it is no harder than brass. (Steel is a different matter) Federal is a sister brand to CCI whose aluminum Blazer ammo I have shot by the ton. I bet you the shell cases are from the...

Kathyrene. Catereen. Kaitrean. Caytherine. It's like a vanity license plate - make sure nobody else has it.

I do too... I meant the wannabe folks using "tactical" slang and swearing by "special forces" they have no clue about. If it fell flat, my fault. Typin' **** coherently is not nearly as easy as...

Basically, you got it right. The LCP is a utilitarian, purpose-built, last resort point shooter. If you plan to pocket-carry, the Ruger is an easy choice. It is also more intuitive in operation. If...

Hearing constant references to "Special Forces". Anything they touch is sure as gold, and "good to go" (another favorite of mine). Whatever works for them, it was made for me too.

Why does everyone insist you have to see the movie before critiquing it!!?

I "assumed" the character would be soviet. My mistake.

Either way, a Russian tank commander armed with an STG is an exotic combination. Better be backed by some good screenwriting.

It is supposed to be a (captured?) German Sturmgewehr. If it is an issued Soviet weapon in the movie, congratulations, you got an artistic license otherwise known as incompetent crap :)

One thing I'd suggest would be a nice fixed stock, like on the Remington R25. Even if it is not a varmint rifle, it helps if you use a scope, and esp in .308.

I doubt the post office will do it, because every single shipment of ammo I received was by FedEx or UPS. They do mark your box as containing ordnance.

I would question your premise, but you are not asking for opinions on that, so moving on. Don't do Craig's list, too much exposure to fraud and even to physical danger. Gunbroker is good, just sell...

That's true, and thank God, because it does a lot of good. There would be no volunteer military like ours, if not for that human trait.

Most of those concerned never suffered PTSD. Men with certain type personality crave danger. In the absence of a real threat, they invent it.

Nothing personal about anyone.

We discuss events so unlikely so often and so much, it makes me think we WANT more danger in our lives. May be something in the DNA. :)

Early electoral campaigns. I would designate a season, like we do for deer hunting. Starts on Memorial Day weekend of the election year, and goes though November.
