    2018 308AR.com Fall Shoot Info

    Should I bring my new toy or will a shot timer be fairly useless with how things are planned?

    Awesome, thanks for the offer. I'll definitely let you know. Should have times locked down this weekend.

    I'm a definite now but rely on my wife and her flight benefits to book which happens 24 hours prior for standby. I'm going for the 17th and leaving on the 21st. Times are still up in the air.

    IWB Holster Recommendation-Stealth Gear

    Very popular holsters. The only gripe I’ve heard of with certain models is they need loctite but you can say that about a lot of holsters and screws loosening up.

    IWB Holster Recommendation-Stealth Gear

    I appreciate the advice and I have heard of them. Seem to be regarded well. I liked N82 in the past with the retention design and comfortable material but there’s a bit too much of it for my liking plus I prefer a combat cut for more grip clearance.
  6. I wanted to give a heads-up to anyone searching for a quality IWB holster. Check out Stealth Gear. I recently bought my second holster from them and couldn't be happier. It's literally the most comfortable IWB I've ever tried. I can't offer any insight into their OWB holster (yet). Over the past year, I've bought two of their more expensive VentCore models and their double and single mag carriers. All are very well made, have a tight fit w/o retention devices, and seat close to the body to avoid printing as much as possible. IMO they put N82 and Crossbreed to shame. Crossbreed has fallen off quite a bit with their quality anyways. I've also had a few G-Code holsters and many other "high-end" holsters and they don't compare. I've had bad customer service experiences with G-Code so they are on my sh*tlist anyways. One catch to SG is they aren't cheap. I'd say they are about $20 or more overpriced but buy once cry once. However, they constantly offer coupon codes that are 15-25% off. By constantly, I mean on a near weekly basis if you sign up for their email. Any other good recommendations people have found for IWB holsters? Good luck.

    In the neck.....again.

    I feel many are taking this like an XProducts announcement which is a bit overboard but I completely understand the frustration with some of these large companies that appear to be folding to political pressures. However, Daniel does appear to be trying to help improve a broken system.

    .308 Faxon Barrel Sale

    That's good to hear. I plan on buying one or two this year. They offer great veteran discounts from time-to-time but are always out of stock for the ones I want. They have a nice new matching receiver group that's about to hit the market too.

    .308 Faxon Barrel Sale

    Pretty good sale on this Faxon barrel at JoeBobOutfitters. https://www.joeboboutfitters.com/Faxon-Firearms-16-Medium-Tapered-308-Win-Mid-Len-p/fax-10a810m16nmq.htm?utm_source=JoeBob+Subscribers&utm_campaign=5a0af6c402-03092018_Campaign&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_d85e6c4367-5a0af6c402-287542761&goal=0_d85e6c4367-5a0af6c402-287542761&mc_cid=5a0af6c402&mc_eid=881adec5d6
  10. I'm looking for a Seekins Precision "SP15 stripped forged upper." This is their older model that has now been discontinued. It's a traditional style upper and I'm one for sticking with the same company for builds. The fit and finish tend to be far more consistent this way. Apparently I waited too long for this build. Seekins has moved on and left me behind with newer designs. Thank you

    Boycott X-Products!

    Apparently there are a few other owners and the buyout is underway. How on earth do you even place a value on a sinking ship though? People are irrate about the original statements and major companies already pulled out of selling their products. Seems that they'll have a tough time recovering if it's even possible. I'd start thinking about selling off all those machines right about now. I can't get over bashing your own customer base....moronic!
  12. Skip all the constant bombardment of sale emails and just use the HONEY extension for Google Chrome. You download the extension and it will appear in the top right. As you jump on your preferred website, pick your item(s), check your cart, use HONEY to scan for coupon codes. They will automatically upload and give you the best deal(s). I had my doubts but tried it on a few big sites and it works. It actually works much better vs. doing individual coupon code searches in google but it's not full proof for every site. Good results were found on Rainier Arms which is normally a tough site to get discounts on.

    17 dead in Florida School shooting

    On the same note that Bubbas was discussing, it is now finger pointing time but all the kids that are saying they knew it would be him is quite disturbing. The BS snitches get stitches phrase does not cover crap like what this psycho was putting out there. There needs to be more attention/accountability brought to disturbing social media posts by students. Apparently, Cruz thoroughly voiced his depravity and yet we have to deal with seeing him carry out such an act. It's always easier to be an "armchair quarterback" but what a sh*tshow.

    For Greg - New Fur Missile

    I feel grossly inadequate since my wife picked this one out last year.
