  1. A tiny little prism scope, hoping this will work better than a red dot with my astigmatism; https://www.dvor.com/bushnell-bt71xps-tac-optics-little-p-1x-11mm-obj-circle-dot-bdc-black-cr2032-li.html
  2. I remember helping Grandma put up canned tomatoes in those quantities. She didn't do any hot stuff besides a pickled pepper relish that was mildly spicy. I think what I remember most aside from the great sauces made throughout the coming year was how hot it got in the kitchen! No AC, just fans blowing and a ton of steam all day long, usually three or four rounds a season. She put up about 90% of the families vegetables for the year so there were many summer days like that. Enjoy that time with the little one, they will remember.
  3. Bedtime Stories Imperial Milk Stout brewed with graham crackers, marshmallow, vanilla, and chocolate. From Abomination Brewing Co, brewed and canned by Dorchester Brewing Co. Boston Mass. and distributed by 12%. I can smell the graham crackers and vanilla, also getting some light smoky aroma like you expect from a stout. Flavor is smoky malt from front to back, on top all the way through, there are hints of dark chocolate and graham cracker, a little creamy from the marshmallow I assume. Has a bitter finish, but does leave a vanilla flavor behind as well. Feels real watery in the mouth, expected a much thicker feel with the list of ingredients, a good summer chugging stout I guess.
  4. It took my young Peruvian intern to explain to me why it was telling me to check the back seat! The only way that warning will work is to put a button in the back seat they have to push or the horn and lights will go off, and then it won't be 100%!
  5. No off button for auto-stop on the Acadia, at least I could turn off the warnings to check my back seat when I turn it off, kept looking back there thinking WTF could be wrong in my back seat!?!
  6. They are putting it in more and more vehicles.I saw it in a new Ford truck last year so was wondering if GMC would follow suit.
  7. Hey @Armed Eye Doc, does that GMC have the auto stop feature that shuts the engine off at stop signs and such? The GMC Acadia they gave me for a government vehicle has it, thought there was something wrong until I saw "Auto Stop" on the speedometer and started reading the book.

    if you don’t mind I’m trying to get some info. on the last AWB.  I don’t recall some of the particulars.  I was an LEO back then but I never enforced or had to deal with it being in Immigration.

    Did we have to hide AR mags that were over 10 rounds or just not able to buy new mags? 

    Did we have to turn any mags in?

    Were we able to use AR10 and AR15, AK, and other military semi-auto(s) or did we have to hide those? 

    I don’t recall how all that worked.

    Thanks for the assistance.

      What I recall was it was just restrictions on sales, everything was grandfathered in, don't remember how they dealt with 30 round mags that were produced before the ban but don't remember anyone turning them in. This did drive up prices considerably on what was out there. Things calmed down a bit after the first year or so. When the ban sunsetted the AR boom was on, sort of mainstreamed the platform. I look for a minimum of registration of older rifles on the next ban.

      Do you think we’ll have a gun ban and mandatory registration coming up?

      What do you think will be the minimum that will happen?

      Not sure, I plan for the worst and hope for the best. 

  9. That is a fantastic group for a magnifier/red dot combo at 300 yards. Put a good scope on that rifle and it may do one hole groups!
  10. Which makes your insistence in calling them all AR-10's even more bewildering! You know the difference, great, why confuse the guy that doesn't?
  11. People commonly beat their wives, doesn't make it right, seriously though it is important to differentiate these platforms with the proper terminology, lack of standard specs for these large frame AR's causes enough problems for those of us assembling them. Way to many parts sellers and manufacturers get it wrong, many on purpose to increase their search results. The grief this has caused the people that bought the wrong parts is real. We just try to do our part in bringing clarity to the subject.
  12. I scored some early Blackwater gear with provenance from the man as well, he has been there and done it!

    If nobody else chimes in before I get home in a couple weeks I can, just let me know what you want to compare. Somewhere here I have a few internal measurements with those and a Lancer posted, mostly focused on cartridge length capabilities though.
  14. For me the clamp on is preferable but not always available in the type and size block I need. It came in super handy for getting the block location correct on my Sig 716 barrel build as the shoulder was there for the piston gas block and didn't line up.
  15. ^^^^^^Exactly. Of the comparisons in this thread the Sig has the tallest engagement surface as well as the widest from the pivot point. If anybody can add to this data it would be great.
