The wife might have a different point of view
Build her one. Then she'll want another one.

That might work. It has to be "her" idea though. Gotta figure out a way for her to say she wants one and then jump on it quick. Mine told me she wanted another pistol to keep in a cabinet by the back door. The next day I bought 2. It was her idea so everything was fine.

Let her shoot yours, say she looks good with it.. or something like that. Or just build her one and surprise her with it. Too late then...

AR's are like trim

When you trim a house, you know baseboards, and quarter round and so forth

Well, when you start trimming, you always need to add more trim

Therefore a long time in a state not so far away

I came up with a saying:

Trim begat trim

Meaning the more you trim the more you will need to continue to trim

If you add a crown molding, it will end up being a five element design. And that will have to be balanced with a Wayne's coating (Or is it Waine's-coating??)
Then if you do a Wayne's coating or chair rail, well you might have to redo the baseboard to be a bit more grander.

And on and on

Trim begat trim

M4 building begat more M4's...see how it works?

Raising boys into RealMen!!

15 - it's the generally applied term to rifles chambered in 223 or 5.56, or one of the other calibers.

10 - are the 308 or 7.62x51mm series semi automatic rifles, or one of the other bigger calibers.

M4- military rifle, chambered in 5.56. Semi/Burst, air cooled, magazine fed.

Also the parts for the 10s are heavier, and more expensive.

Pre 1984 built weapon with tax stamp unless you are licensed to build class 3 weapons for a police dept or military / gov contract. If I miss stated something please correct me but that's my general understanding without looking it up again...

Basically Dave you or I cannot legally build burst or FA weapons. Only the Kings men are deemed to have such things unless you want to spend a small fortune for a pre 84 weapon.

Yep, Shawn has it mostly correct.

Anyone can own a fully automatic weapon or even a destructive device (Above .50 cal)
All you need to do is buy one and buy the $200 tax stamp and it's yours...start spraying woodpeckers and groundhogs to your heart's delight
But buying the thing is the hang up.
Automatic weapons were for sale up until 1984 when auto guns made thereafter were made illegal.
So all you have to do is go find a pre 1984 auto gun for 20K-30K and buy it, then pay the ATF tax stamp and you're GTG
If you have a FFL
Then you can apply for a class 3 license to resale auto guns. Then you can buy a new HK 416 for $1500 in full auto and posses it until you sell it to your local police department. When you cease to own the class 3 license, then you must saw up the full auto guns and spend three weeks in therapy for doing such an awful thing to a good gun!

& that last part the license for class 3 is a pretty hefty annual expense so add that to your $1500 H&K

I kinda wanted to say something along those lines, but I felt magnanimous, so I let it ride.

I remember my first Carbine class. Had my new shiny Bushmaster. It was my first AR. It was cold and wet. Muddy actually. I was so scared I was going to scratch it.

By the time I got done I was covered in mud the weapon was muddy and all scatched up. I never again had a safe queen AR after that. Toss em scratch em rattle can them and keep shooting!

Good point men

Those lilly livered boyz are outside today for yard work in the rain!

If no one hears from me it's probably due to the jail time for child abuse!

Another D.O.T. note  Anyone see that movie "Max" yet? Pretty good one. A marine EOD/recon dog. Good people, great dog!

I actually have to get back on it...Having some FTF malfunctions. Like the bolt gets jammed up on some magazines. Some of the magpuls jam and the metal mags seem to work well. Dunno, something is messed up...

Sounds like something simple I'd say, odd though.
