  1. Do you have another one? Take it to a Fastenal store and they will likely be able to hook you up
  2. a 20" rifle length upper would look awesome on that lower.
  3. Think of it like a G48 with more capacity. Thin, high capacity, optics ready, comped, and different feel (ergos, trigger) than other comparable guns
  4. even worse news. I got real excited when I saw the email and thought about a 17rd comped 365 that was optic ready.
  5. I think it's larger than the 365, pretty much XL size
  6. If you are going to pony up for a suppressor or you already have a suppressor that can handle 300BO that is my suggestion. If you are only going to shoot supersonics I wouldn't bother with 300BO. If you are primarily shooting indoors at 25y I would honestly just stick with 5.56, not worth the ammo cost to punch a different size hole in the paper.
  7. correct transfer it in as a firearm. There is a thread somewhere in here about pistol to rifle or rifle to pistol. The old saying used to be once a rifle always a rifle. As for buffers you can use a standard carbine buffer tube unless you are looking at some of the specialized collapsible braces that use a proprietary buffer system. Braces the SBA3 and SBA4 are probably the most commonly used, I've run a bunch of the SBA3s and have never felt the need to change. Some other component suggestions Triggers - Larue is your best bang for the buck. under $100 gets you a fantastic trigger, you can spend 2x and get a Geissele but from what I have shot you aren't going to get 2x the performance. Under that there are plenty of polished mil-spec triggers out there, I think the ALG ACT is a pretty common choice but the price is close enough to the Larue that I would just start there Charging Handle - Radian Raptor series all day, pick if you want the polymer tabs or aluminum and go from there. Aero Breach series is nice too just have more experience with the Radian. Safety Selector - Radian Talon ambi setup is a solid option Bolt Catch - the Geissele maritime bolt catch is a solid upgrade for ~$25 They make a matching mag release as well if you want to get real matchy on your build.
  8. you don't see many offset mounts for the RMS-C footprint optics. Typically use RMR or DPP footprints for rifle backups. Might have some luck with a footprint adapter that would allow you to use an RMR offset mount but would be another component to potentially fail if you're looking for something super stable.
  9. how does 300 BLK do against hogs under 100 yards? Looking to go back to TX this fall for some pigs and was planning on running my 10.5" 300 gun but if I HAD to build an AR10 I guess I could make that work as well.

    I have a hard time getting my head around getting a new gun in a NATO cartridge with ammo available everywhere and here comes Rob getting guns I have never heard of rechambered in a caliber I have never heard of.

    had a TPSFX a while back and it was a dream to shoot just didn't really fill any holes in my collection so let it go. I wouldn't hesitate to pick up one of the new models. I know mags have been tough to come by lately for them.
  12. Apparently they are deemed an AOW. https://www.smallarmsreview.com/display.article.cfm?idarticles=3739
  13. I am going to second the benchmade bugout as a good lightweight option. It disappears in my pocket and is one of my go to options in the summer. If you want something a little larger I would look at the spyderco para lightweight as a good option.
  14. Can't second the chair logic here any harder. When I first started WFH I am ashamed to admit how long I worked on a folding table using an extra dining room chair. My back kept hurting and eventually pulled the trigger on a decent steelcase chair and I have never regretted a single dollar of that expense.
  15. I've got this one. https://www.amazon.com/Sceptre-C325W-1920R-32-Inch-LED-lit-Monitor/dp/B01LY5MTNN/ref=asc_df_B01LY5MTNN/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=312727440900&hvpos=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=2608354982090377108&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9013147&hvtargid=pla-493787463335&psc=1
  16. if you're asking for height I assume you are doing a decent amount of document work. I have worked with a lot of folks who have their monitor on a mount that allows it to be flipped 90 degrees and they have all the height they need. I have a cheapo sceptre 32" curved monitor at my home setup and it's not a bad setup, not a fancy gaming monitor but works for a home office setup
  17. Just started canning this year, so far have knocked out about 30 jars. Got another 14 jars worth of green beans to get done in the next few days
  18. I would suggest CATs as well based on everything I have seen those and SOF-Ts seem to be the choices and looking at "Pros" the CAT seems to be the standard. I would also advise against Amazon for you purchase, a ton of fakes out there. Dark Angel Medical has treated me right in the past. Here is one list I found for the TCCC approved tourniquets. https://www.offgridweb.com/preparation/cotccc-has-expanded-its-recommended-tourniquet-list-for-2019/
  19. Whatever you decide with do not purchase your CATs from Amazon, they have been riddled with fakes. I suggest Dark Angel Medical for your kit components.
  20. Those duluth bibs are standard canvas material and would be as quiet as carhartts or even jeans
  21. I think TVA Undeveloped land is accessible for hunting as well: https://www.tva.com/environment/environmental-stewardship/land-management/rules-for-use-of-tva-public-lands Map https://tva.maps.arcgis.com/apps/Embed/index.html?webmap=b110b866ffec492cb95e5c62b1a4f40f&extent=-88.891,33.5017,-82.0685,37.389&home=true&zoom=true&scale=true&search=true&searchextent=true&legend=true&show_panel=true&basemap_gallery=true&disable_scroll=false&theme=light
  22. I got a set of bibs from Alaska HardGear (Duluth Trading Brand) and I wore them playing out in the snow with the kids last year and I was sweating. They are legit and I wouldn't hesitate to wear them in a stand in TN weather. https://www.duluthtrading.com/mens-akhg-deadhorse-bib-overalls-85423.html?dwvar_85423_color=CGY&cgid=akhg-men-pants#start=14&cgid=akhg-men-pants These were the ones I got.
  23. I would suggest if you know what you want from a basic standpoint e.g. barrel length, gas length, etc. you can probably get a complete upper from Aero or BCM and put together a lower with a decent trigger like a LaRue and have yourself a might fine blaster that is exactly what you want. Anytime I have bought an AR with the intent of "upgrading" it to what I really wanted all along it ends up costing more time and money than if I would have just done it right the first time
  24. running a blue alpha gear double belt with the following and have been super happy with the setup -UBL Mid ride -T-Rex Ragnarok with QLS & Leg Strap -Blue alpha gear Micro Trauma Kit now in the middle of the back -Dual pistol Esstac Kywis -Single Rifle Esstac Kywi -Flatline Fiberco dump pouch behind rifle Kywi
  25. I'd suggest checking out Parker's Safes and Vaults down in Shelbyville and they can find you a unit to fit your needs. When I was in the market for a new safe I did some research and had a few phone calls with Aaron and eventually stopped by his shop to look at what he has in stock and eventually chose my safe. Delivery was painless and Aaron and team were very good with getting my safe into a somewhat tricky spot. Safes are one of the items I would consider stepping up a bit on budget to get something that is really going to protect what you put in it. https://parkersafeandvault.com/
