Bow related instead of gun related. Built a rope spike release. Easier then my tab on the fingers. Just have to remember to aim low and left.

@brothaman

What kind of Anderson lowers? When I built my 5.56 AR, that was the foundation I used too.

This week I sold a shotgun slug casting mold since I never bought the shotshell reloader I wanted. I used the proceeds to pick up a 223 bullet mold instead. I'll try that out this weekend. Gotta get gas checks too but I think I might just get a check maker since I have plenty of aluminum hanging around.

Those were AR-15 mutli-cal lowers. Its my understanding that Anderson produces a double metric shit ton of lowers for other folks. No matter what its marked, It might be an Anderson lower.

Hey,.. I'll finally have an AR with a Pony on it!! Take that Colt!!

Really a fan of Aimpoint and Eotech for their durability, but since this rifle is mainly a range toy I feel pretty good about this purchase despite zero experience with Primary Arms.

Fingers crossed...

P.S. Also grabbed one of their "Mission First Tactical Torch Backup Weapon Lights" ... Mostly because it was cheap and I'm curious how it'll work as an indoor light. It's basically one of those keychain LED lights with a molded on picatinny rail mount:

I have to say, I'm dubious about its utility...if you need a light, you need a bright light to properly ID your target/environment. I can see it as a lightweight backup or if you're trying to preserve your night vision for some reason, but can't really think of a practical use for this thing. That said, I'm willing to drop $30 to play around with it.
I bought one of these myself, but haven't yet found an application for it.

I did however ziptie one of those tiny Photon lights to my Midwest industries handguard below my weaponlight as a goof, like a navigation light.

Two versadapters for my (hopefully) soon to be released from purgatory Bowers 458 SOCOM can.

1/2x28 and 5/8x24 to go with the 11/16x24 (common 450 BM threading) adapter that came with the can...and just showed up at my house!

Got a Spike's Tactical "spartan" multi caliber lower at aimsurplus.com, here's the link to it: http://www.aimsurplus.com/product.aspx? ... oupid=5379
for $89.95 with free shipping. During checkout, if you don't have an FFL, you can select from a list of licensed dealers in your state to do the transfer. The FFL address, phone number, and fee is listed. I selected one near me that charged $25. AIM shipped it the next day and the dealer called me when it arrived. I picked it up four days after my order. I like the unique selector markings. Still saving for the rest of the parts, but they can all be shipped directly to me. I am looking at a complete rifle kit from palmetto http://palmettostatearmory.com/psa-16-m ... e-kit.html for $399.99.

Favorite Zombie Movies: so far zombieland because i think it accuratly depicts what a zombie could be like. not a dead becoming undead, but an infected human... kinda like a dog with raibies. even tho signs of other survivors were non existant in the movie except for the 4 main characters and bill murray...

A Trijicon MRO Red Dot Optic with low mount for my FNH PS90.

It is built like a tank, being able to withstand a wicked beating and still hold zero, is waterproof down to 30 meters (100ft), has a 2 MOA Red Dot, and battery life is 5 years of continuous use (Left ON) on brightness setting 3! :shock:

Smokin' deal on 300BLK at PSA through tomorrow: http://palmettostatearmory.com/pnw-arms ... tip20.html

I bought enough to get the whole crew through next months hog eradication at my buddy's ranch, plus enough to have some range time for everyone beforehand.

I got my first handgun (viewtopic.php?f=107&t=2833&p=2628765#p2628765), and had the opportunity to score some ammo for a bargain.

I was unsorted stuff, so I just sorted to into Wadcutter, FMJ ball and various JHP. Also, I didn't count it, I weighed it. That's 37 Kilos of .45ACP. I paid 100€. :clap:
