  1. One of the best things I ever bought. All my wood tools are on mobile bases as well.
  2. I have one of the Harbor Freight benches. I love it. Space isn't such an issue with me since I added these. Just stomp the casters down and roll it where I want it... http://www.rockler.com/workbench-caster-kit-4-pack

    I understand
  4. Browning X Bolt Stainless 6.5 Creedmoor

    Yep. I'm a fan. Got a Hunter version in .243
  5. If I Only Had One Concealed Carry...

    I love my Model 36 snubbie. I rarely carry either of my J Frames. Still have lots of affection. At one time, it was THE gun to conceal.
  6. If I Only Had One Concealed Carry...

    G19 for me as well. I carry a 43 more, but if I could only have one...
  7. ad closed 10 Gen2 Black Magpul PMAG’s

    Damn. Just had 10 show up today from a vendor that was formerly dead to me.
  8. AR lower finishes?

    I knew you were. They're pretty much all specialty tools. Roll pin and roll pin starter punches, receiver vise blocks and specialized assembly blocks. I use an impact style center punch to stake the castle nut, but you can use an old school center punch. Click type torque wrench for the barrel nut. Armorer's wrench.
  9. AR lower finishes?

    Most I have dealt with were one. That's how I wound up building the gun pictured above, and its twin.
  10. AR lower finishes?

    Building them is really fun and low stress if you have the tools. My first one was stressful because I didn't have any of the cool tools. Fast forward somewhere around 20 builds, and I have everything now. I can focus on the little extra care, which is the true benefit of assembling your own guns. Of course, you get to pick your parts too. Not a small deal if you want something more than dirt cheap. Of course, you can always upgrade.
  11. AR lower finishes?

    You may not be able to find the blems
  12. AR lower finishes?

    I bought the lowers locally. I think they were a good price. Almost none of my guns have matching receivers. Maybe just the TGO guns. I have been VERY happy with the PSA product. Built me a truck gun because there was a sale. Then built a couple for my brother and my girlfriend's son. My brother had me upgrade his with a BCM handguard, a Geissele trigger and a Magpul stock. While I was at it. I lapped the upper receiver. That gun shoots sub MOA now, with the cheap PSA stainless barrel that came on it.
  13. AR lower finishes?

    Not true. My Double star lower doesn't match anything. Here's an Anderson Lower with a PSA upper. If that isn't close enough, just get a PSA lower transferred in.
  14. Marshall County Kentucky School Shooting

    New info. The dad isn't dead. His IS an extreme asshole, though.
  15. New Ruger pistol, Security 9

    Do you really NEED an AR-15? Snap out of it, man. I'm getting worried
