    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.

    Thank you to all!
    krzywolf... yes I graduated from Nettleton. After the Corps, I made Tulsa and Central AR my AO til '05 when I came back to the old stomping grounds.
    I would like to hit the range sometime. I don't feel like getting out and about very often but breaking paper on occasion has been known to motivate me. I'm not a fan of the formality (and $) of the range anymore and sling rounds at a friend's house when I can. I sat through around 8000 rds/week between the rifle and pistol range while I was in and have since gotten used to not having to wait my turn.

    Well this is a public range that doesn't cost any money to shoot on. And all the waiting you will be doing is changing targets.
