So...Next blast fest Jan 7, or 14th maybe?


BTW: My Sabre midlength looks awesome, now it just needs an ACOG.

we need to get you a digital camera

Funny you say that, my wife just picked up "our present to ourselves" a few days ago. A Kodak EasyShare CW330. Its got 4mp and 3x zoom I think, it seems pretty nice. I've tried doing a few pics of the AR's but my digicamera fu is weak. My pics always seem fuzzy or out of focus. I wish taking pics like Stickman was easy.

And then I find out that my wife hasnt set up the software to upload the pics yet. Hopefully today we'll get that done. I'll post some pics here and then I'll probably have to hit all the pic threads of the guns I own (AR, AK, SKS, shotgun, Sig, and Baby Eagle)

Spiff: You'll be happy to know I did a super, hella cleaning on the Sig and Baby Eagle. I even cleaned one of the AR's

I vote for the 7th, the 14th is to far away.

Now I'm thinking that I'll need to build a mid-length with my extra A2, or for a marginal extra cost, get another A3.

Also, I implore you Jollyroger to *not* get an ACOG. Because if you do, I'll be forced, in the spirit of "keeping up with the Jones's" to get one to. Which might seriously stress my wife causing her to do bodily harm to, first me, and then you guys ('cause I'll be forced to blame it on you).

I really like Jollyrogers Troy BUIS, it does seem that lots of people are having problems with them. Which should not happen with a $150 rear sight.

And it seems that people have had the same canting problem with the EOTech, so I'll be sweating it until I get mine (about Tues or Wed) and mount it on it's new home.
Link Posted: 12/17/2005 8:52:53 AM EDT
The 7th ought to work for me.

I think it would be pretty funny to see you show up with a new ACOG and a blackeye at the next blast fest Spiff!!

I support your choice for the mid lenght! I like mine quite a bit!

And about the Troy, is this something that they have fixed? I wonder if you could ask Steve at ADCO or Paul at Bravo or any of the other guys that carry it to look at it first to make sure yours wasnt canted.

The EoTech I looked through looked a bit weird at close ranges, might have been me though.

Looking at the midlength right now...yeah it definitely needs an ACOG.

Now I asked you guys who had looked through one before!! Well, who had shot one. And no one said anything!!

If it doesn't work out I'll sell it and get a Comp ML3, I'm flexible and the person I'm buying it from has a 7 day return. If returning it does not work out I'll discount it $20 and it will go instantly on Ebay, Gunbroker or here in the EE. Lots of people like them though. Hindsight being what it is, maybe I should have run over to Boise Gun and taken a peek through the 552 they have.

Maybe I'll start putting ACOG's on *all* my A3's!! It would more or less be just one less rifle I'd own for every ACOG.
Link Posted: 12/17/2005 9:15:17 AM EDT
So do we agree on the 7th?
Link Posted: 12/17/2005 9:20:03 AM EDT
7th it is!

I had just looked through the EoTech for the first time yesterday, and out at like 20yrds it looked good. It'll be fine.

Now, the question is, after I save up another $600 should I go Kimber Warrior or Acog? Decisions decisions.
Link Posted: 12/17/2005 9:43:37 AM EDT
Ugh. The troy link I posted was just the tip of the shitstorm

admit it, that 2.25" grouping at 100yds with the acog is persuasive.

1/7/06 blastfest......MUAHAHAHAH!!
Link Posted: 12/17/2005 10:58:03 AM EDT
The most irritating part is that I have a cheap Tasco scope with a picatinny rail adapter. It sits perfectly straight. Yet numerous people are having problems with a $150 iron sight?

I think Jollyroger should sell me his. Cause I do like the way it functions.
Link Posted: 12/17/2005 11:03:49 AM EDT
[Last Edit: 12/17/2005 11:04:00 AM EDT by jollyroger]
Sell you mine! Hahahahaha...you crack me up.

Actually I did a lot of researching before I bought mine. I found a couple of threads about the Troy, both good and bad. But I gave it a whirl and came out fine. I really wonder how many of the canted ones are out there, is it a lot or just a few people making a big noise about it?

I also kind of like the looks of the LMT fixed BUIS. Basically a chopped A2 carry handle, and solid as a rock to boot.

So is the Warrior the 1911 you've decided on? What made you decide on it?

I'm thinking about going for broke (literally) and getting a Colt. Looks like they are running about $1300 or so. The blue satin nickle ones look very cool. If I went with this expensive of a pistol, I'd probably have to use the CC, which I *just* got paid off end of last month!!

I had a blast shooting the Springfield last time. The CZ was defiantly more accurate though. Well, till it broke.

Damn I'd like to get my hands on a *real* Gov. Issue 1911.
Link Posted: 12/17/2005 12:50:51 PM EDT
I've heard good things about the Warrior, GI style plug and rod, internal extractor, accurate, plus its got a rail. Looks good and is reliable as all get out.

Although I would really like to have a "normal" 1911 without the rail too, someday, such as:

Yost-Bonitz They make some sweet assed custom guns off of a GI Springfield or a Colt gun.

Or this Wilson

You pay a pretty penny for those though, but I think it would be worth it.


Colt pistols do look sweet, I have to admit. I think the 70 series is supposed to be absolut sex when it comes to 1911's.
Link Posted: 12/17/2005 12:57:27 PM EDT
Oh yeah, ar10er said he would bring a couple of his Colt 1911's out next time.

Are you seriously thinking about a two-tone, nickel and blued 1911 What would JMB think?

I am overlaping my 2 week notice with my training, and I have only done two days of training, but it is cool so far, wandering around underground. I will start my first day of "real" work on the 17th.

The above is why I have not been able to make a shoot, and I will be late to the ones I make in the future, as I will get off at 0700, then go home and sleep for a few hours.

Gotcha, I too will be working night shifts pretty soon as part of my promotion. That means 18:30 - 06:30 Sunday through Tuesday and every other Wednesday.

Are you bringing the Blackhawk vest to the 7th shoot? Luckypunk has been talking about it quite a bit ever since he saw it.

Yes, I shall. I have to go do my last day of patrol now. Merry Christmas!

Well since you asked, this Framboise Lambic stuff is prolly the best tasting fruitbeer I have ever tasted

Well since you asked...More Corona!!!

Have you guys tried McEwens Scots Ale. 8% and smooth. It's imported from Scotland and its not near as bitter as the American knock-offs. Mmmm.

Yeah...this may be even better than Guiness!

Where do you find McEwens? I got the Framboise at cost plus. They got all kinds of good stuff there.

Computers are easy to build. They pretty much just plug together. in fact I'll (likely)be getting a new video card with a gift cert. mom sends me for Xmas. and have another board, procesor, ect if yours needs upgrading.

It did get me all hot and bothered.

It's an expansion pack for Battlefield2 called special forces.

BF2 looks real good. Along with the Vid card I think I'll get the game FEAR. It'll be the first new one since DOOM 3 came out. Yes, it's been that long.

I'm thinking it was a good dose of "Buck Fever".

No but we play Call of Duty (CoD). Its pretty close. So is Medal of Honor.


Also, has anyone used one of the ARMS#118, 119 or 120 rear sights?

Oh and dont mind the mess in the pics...I had just opened a bunch of stuff from the UPS guy.
