i didn't end up doing too badly...

snagged the FN SLP i'd been wanting for $1k... had an aimpoint on it to boot... thought it might have been fake at first, but confirmed it wasn't... pretty happy about that...



also, i picked up the rest of the parts to finish my spikes 22LR AR15... got the balance of them at brownells last week. ron had some of the "tan" stuff and i thought it might be wise to keep the 22LR a different color for snagging stuff on the quick from the safe to dispatch various varmints... who wants to make mistake in the middle of the night?



i also managed to get a lot of work done that had piled up, so that allowed for some breathing room...

i took a quick pic of a new unit i finished for a member here:



it'll be quite the unit when he gets the optics mounted...

i trust everyone made out like a bandit. all three of you that attended anyway...

nothing wrong with a FN weekend at all. Now I just need to find a PS90 FS2000 or Scar for sub $1000 and I'll be set
