Last chance to ammo up for the Easter Bunny.

Our newest Marine will be there, Saturday. Any side bets on how fast he eats breakfast?

I need to buy an EOtech, or an Aimpoint to hold me over while Im saving money for my Acog.

Im just trying to figure out if the Acog will be better on the Garand, or on the M1-carbine?

It would seem that $300+ would be better spent towards saving for the ACOG

I know that, but to be honest with ya...

I could afford to go buy all three right now without hurting, I have been working 12 hour shifts at work 2 nights a week since the first of the year, with no end in site, and my fire dept check (about $300 a Month) is my play money. I just like to drag it out over a couple of months so the wife thinks Im really trying to save up for it.

Besides, when was the last time you saw a Acog mount for a M1 Garand?

Ah alright. I figured there was a reason behind it. I would get the Eotech over the Aimpoint if you do decide to buy one. I liked my Eotech better over the limited time I spent using the Aimpoint during OSUT. They're cheaper too from what I've seen.

An ACOG on a Garand would be pretty sweet and unique.

I picked up a HK P2000 .40 LEM+250rds Speer Gold Dots a couple weeks ago from a buddy here for $500 . He is heading to Okinawa so he can't bring any cool toys along but I'm sure he'll have a heck of a time over there.
This summer I'm probably going to get an 1911 before graduation or when I get back to WA. I'll finally be 21 2days before graduation!

I'll be glad to take one of your AKs to LCR so you can say it was there. I might even shoot it.

Well I was looking at a Springfield Loaded Full Size MC Operator PX9105ML or a Kimber Desert Warrior. The TRP Light Rail Armory Kote looked nice but obvioulsy its more. A buddy in my class told me to get a Springfield "Loaded" 1911 then he would help me clean it up and install some better parts on it. He has an operator he did work on by using the Wilson armory video.

Both good choices, I know that I said that I would not get another Kimber..(just over priced).

But that Desert Warrier just looks too damn nice.

Midway has the best prices I've seen on Eothechs.

I think Strat might also have a used one for sale.

I dont know what the deal is with our place right now, ( or any of the centers right now, we are all understaffed, and cant find qualified people). we picked up 4 and 2 are gone already, with 6 slots waiting on the money, that we have blown in Overtime.

Nothing easy about getting this job, any little glitch can catch you in the process. Just keep at it!...There is also WSP, marysville.

I will be sure to give a heads up to a couple of people in here when we post agian.

I did not for the first time in a very very long time buy anything. I was looking for a Colt or Bushmaster M4 for a buddy but did not see one. I almost bought a crate of guatemalen from
James but did not know at the time if 280.00 for 1440 was a good deal or not?

It's the industry standard price right now. Here's AIM's price ( does not include shipping which is an easy $40+ here to WA )

ammo

I bought 1500 loose rounds of the IMG ( Guatamalan 5.56 from him ) was a gnats ass cheaper w/ the advantage of being 100% positive was bright n shiny vs the occasional bad batch crud.

I snagged a case of SA .308 also and that summed up my purchases for the day.

I bought a small ammo {loose} can of the Guatamalan 5.56, ran it through the chronograph, normally velocity varies 20 fps or more but this stuff was 3075, 3075, 3075, did not have time to print for average group size but as far as velocity goes it seems real good.


forgot that was out of a 16 inch Oly barrel 1 in 9 twist.

I also picked up a can of the Quatamalan, AND Got a smoking deal on a 16" flattop upper receiver minus the B/BC/CH, then of course another BP of the SA for the .308 I dont own yet.
