Years ago I would buy used ACOG scopes cheap, use them for 6 months to a year, then sell them for a small profit in order to repeat the process with a different ACOG. One of these times I was offered a Glock G30 with a large number of accessories in trade for an ACOG … Read moreMy Firearms: Glock 30, a forgotten glock.
I had my first lower apart and realized it would be good chance to show what the PRI Gasbuster Charging Handle has done to this lower. First you can see how the gasbuster has carved two channels into the lower. The ears of the gasbuster make it larger and easier to use also have rubbed … Read moreDamage from a PRI Gasbuster
A Marine I served with managed to track me down. All he knew was my name and what state I was in and he found me. So much for my personal OPSEC I suppose. While I was talking to him on the phone I was joking that I was going to change my number as … Read moreChatter and Cold Weather Gear
The second AR15 upper I purchased had a Phantom flash hider with the crenelated front pin and welded to it. It looked the the bottom flash hider in the picture.

When National Public Radio (NPR) looked into this, they found that 161 of these schools or districts reported to NPR that no school shootings … Read moreNPR shows Education Department’s report on school shoots grossly exaggerated.
I sent in a scope for repair to Leupold. When they received it they sent me an email confirming that they received it along with an estimated time frame. Normally when I send something off for service it just shows back up in the mail sometime randomly. Usually after a long wait. I am very … Read moreWow Leupold
I am not so old as to have gray hairs, but I remember long ago listening to people rant about the problems caused by Rock and/or Roll. They would preach how the world was formed perfect, then the taint of this loud profane music ruined everything. Before, there was no war, violence, premarital sex, venereal … Read moreWhen Guns are Outlawed only Outlaws will have Video Games
I can’t believe I haven’t written about the TA31 series of ACOGs yet. These were my favorite optic for a long time. My first experiece with them was in the Marine Corps using the TA31RCO-A4 on the M16A4. The 4x magnification of the TA31 series of ACOGs will leave a shadow of the front sight … Read moreOptic of the week: Trijicon TA31RCO-A4
I was looking at my notes and realized I hadn’t shot my AR15A4 in over a year, so I took it out last weekend. The reason I keep an A4 configured rifle around is because I carried one in combat. I actually carried the M16A2 more while I was in the service, but I had … Read moreMisc rambling on the A4.
