Some striking similarities….heh. Don’t know how long Brushbeater’s had his; mine is from 2014 or so.
Read the post, here. It’s full of some good information. Especially now that it’s a buyer’s market on AR’s. There are a couple very poignant statements he makes, though, that I want to repeat here:
“Much of the thinking (and writing) concerning combat-oriented weapons get hung up on the platform itself- and that’s a problem. The thing that goes Bang! is one part, but each component of your weapon is a piece of a larger system, each having a specific place and purpose, not there for winning the cool guy contest. The weapon, optic, ammunition, magazine, and sling are each interdependent- and this is a tough concept to learn just sitting on a square range.”
“You were granted a temporary reprieve, but socially as well as economically, things are not looking rosy. If you’re still fence-sitting, or still in need of that all knowing clue-bat, get on it. Simple, rugged, reliable, effective.”
Don’t think so? Check out the news regarding the ‘pro-Trump’ rallies nationally yesterday. Many arrests. Even within 5 miles of where I was raised in ‘nothing happens here’ Michigan.
Do some dry fire….and some PT while you’re at it.
