Did you get all the money you need. I could toss in a little bit, sounds like its worth giving up a few boozin' nights.

the rifle is bought and paid for, not a problem

right now we have about $400 left over. we can either outfit it with an optic (aimpoint in this price range) or we can buy ammo and mags for it. optimally i'd like to do both, perhaps even upgrade the optic to an ACOG

so the short answer is yes we have all the money we need but it would certainly be nice to outfit it for him too........................

Link Posted: 10/19/2004 6:50:30 AM EST

Link Posted: 10/19/2004 3:47:15 PM EST
list is getting longer all the time, edited again for gunstock zippo owners..............................
Link Posted: 10/20/2004 5:01:54 AM EST
Tex does he have Mags? What else might he need incase some of us can do more?
Link Posted: 10/20/2004 6:40:49 AM EST
he has the bushmaster 30 rounder that came with the rifle and two other 30s that a member donated to him. no ammunition but after i get in the final bill on his optic i imagine there will still be about $200 left for other accessories or whatever he would like...............
