Re: AR-15......What should I get?

The Bushmaster XM15E2S is the best AR I've ever handled/owned; amazingly accurate. Laevatein I am in the market for a new AR-15 and the options seem endless. I was looking at the colt Hbar or a bushmaster, but I am not married to either so other options are welcome. Any input as to brand, models, ba...

Rifle based on time...

If you don't need to purchase immediately,
why not spend your money on a really good
receiver, and then add parts as paychecks
come in.

Stay with a NATO caliber, in that if you need
to pilfer from those that didn't make it, you
stand a much better chance of finding what
you need; ammo, parts eta.

DSA - Para Problem:

If you're going to build an FAL para from a parts kit, and then buy a DSA para folding stock, do know that they-are-not-compatible. The DSA stock bolt, hinge block, folding stock and lower receiver are DSA proprietary. They make their lower and para parts that don't interchange with other para parts...

It hasn't been like that for MANY years. This year will be my 14th year, and I have not seen a naked hippie in at least six years. It was like that, but those days are over. Art and invention and creativity are now de rigueur, and I don't see that changing very soon. Nudity at such events is over-ra...

It's not about nakedness...

At all.

I't's 40,000 people camping in the same place.

It has nothing to do with your state of nudity.

It's a great week for those that don't assume
that it's anything but camping, and art.

Technically, is they are stored in a cool/dry area, there good for nine years. I've eaten MRE's that old, and I couldn't tell the difference.

Most EMT classes require the latest version of the book. When I started, there were many copies of the seventh edition, but the class I took required the eighth edition. Not unique as far as the 'new version every year' as that's the racket with almost every college book. If you want to take the cla...

The MIA / M14 has been bathed in blood, and
has an amazing service record. If you want
a rifle that was 'designed' for bayonet & butt
plate that can withstand an amazing amount
of abuse, the clear winner in the MIA.

It's a big step from being a first responder to an EMT B, at least here in CA.
