    Talking Went off the deep end.

    Went to the gun show in Orlando to day and came home with this little jewel. One trouble is I know nothing about them. Well I guess I better learn right.

    Congrats on the purchase Baldy. I'm jealous, I have ALWAYS wanted one of those. Ever since I was little I wanted one, but it's just not practical for me at all, especially when I'm in Illinois. Hopefully that will all change when I move to Arizona Let us know how it shoots. What kind is it?

    your going to love it baldy.get extra mags now while they are cheap.for shooting off a bench I like the 20 rd mags the best and colt 10 rd mags almost fit flush.
    as for handloading my colt seems to really like AA2520 and AA2460.imr 4895 also did very well.

    Ha Baldy! A lot of worse things have happened at the Orlando Gun Show that what happened to you! Plus, I know you are still married after that. As for some, they ain't!

    Good show!

    Wow, nothing like an impulse buy like that! Very nice. I am not too familiar with that brand (which isn't saying much) but I am sure it will serve you just fine. And, EO-Tech and Magpul are great companies. I just bought a mag exactly like the one you have pictured, but black and with the little clear window. I really like it better than the metal ones and am going to order two more while they're cheap and easy.

    These guys are out of Apoka Fl which is just outside of Orlando. They are well knowed here in this area and I just found out they do have a web site.

    I done a little more research today and the price with 4-Magpul's, and Eo-Tech, and a carrying case wasn't too bad from what I can tell. Oh well it's to late now. Going down to the reloading shop in the morning and see if I can get a Dillion 550 so I can load for this puppy.

    Not sure about that company, but I know my Bushy won't even go to safe unless it's racked.

    The only safety Baldy needs is his finger. Yes, he's that damn good!

    You've gone and done it now. The handguns won't get out of the safe for a while.

    Good luck and good shooting!

    The Gene Stoner rotating bolt is a brilliant engineering marvel that advanced self loading rifles by a century! You can't go wrong with a AR!

    Baldy, check out your local military surplus store or online and pick up a army/airforce/marine FM on your rifle. This is a good one here for a intro on how it works!

    http://www.globalsecurity.org/milita...3-22-9/c04.htm

    Chapter 4 is the fundamentals but the rest is fun reading too!

    BTW, can you PM me with how much you paid? I'm looking at getting another AR and converting my current lower with its trigger and stuff into a 6.8SPC.


    Thanks.

    It amuses me how guys (like Anarius) who have used the AR-pattern rifles overseas seldom complain about them, while various internet chairborne commandos claim the AR isn't reliable enough for a ten-meter waddle from the car to the firing line of a nice manicured range.

    Enjoy the new hardware, Baldy!

    Thanks Mike I think it will be fun. The wifes already after me to get the new press set up for I can load for it. Well we can now enter the battle with the Zombies now. Not in my wildest dreams did I ever think we would have one of these.

    Sounds like you've got a great wife there Baldy My girlfriend is loving shooting now as well since I let her pick out a gun (the stoeger) that she wanted to shoot and I bought it so she could shoot alongside me. She will make a great pro-gun wife some day too That will make life much easier as I can tell you most likely already know. Let us know how it shoots!
