With all that dust on it, you might as well give the Burb to me so you don't have to look at the destroyed hulk of what could've been.

Supposed to help with recoil and follow up shots. I never really saw the need to swap out springs for heavier or lighter unless you're a competition shooter try to tweak some time off or firing hundreds (thousands) of rounds on a frequent basis.

Went to work for  for likely 6 hrs of OT by working in the health office, afterwards I get to go watch a couple friends go through pool camp for their Veterans' scuba course. I will attempt to take video for the charity with my gopro.


EDIT... I was at work for about 9 hrs.

Blue is what I think is high terrain.  Red would be the low spots where water might flow.

Needs to be low ground, as blue represents water on military maps and water is generally found in the lowgrounds. You gave me a headache...

And this left over spaghetti.....was it some canned stuff or did your girl make it for you...(hopefully shes still around?)?

Regular spaghetti. I just finished the 2nd dish of leftovers for lunch today. Although, I do have a can of Chef Boyardee spaghetti and meatballs in my drawer at work as a backup.
As for the girlfriend, I've been single since September of last year.

Eh, I've seen bad results with paint on lume, but also seen great results all in the person doing it I suppose. But if it were me I'd just swap the sights and be done with it.

You guys all have a little deeper pockets than I lol. 

If you want an RMR (and I use that term to cover all RDS options) then save up and send the slide off to get milled out for that optic. As previously posted the Trijicon RMR is pretty much the standard, but Leupold Delta point pro is a very valid option. I've seen and used people's pistols that had the Vortex versions of the rmr mounted and it was very usable.

Here's my opinion, stick with the stock plastic sight for a bit and see what you think. If you want to upgrade to an rds on it, then save up for the suppressor height sights, then save up for the optic you want to mount, then finally ship it off to get milled out by a competent operation. Trident Defense in Illinois or Jaegerwerks in Michigan are 2 that come to mind quickly off the top of my head. Sad part is once you get it milled you'll generally need to choose a new color to get the slide cerakoted to a new color or camo pattern if you wish.

Since I didn't attach a link before:

Trident defense has a LEO cut which I pasted below. You have to buy the suppressor sights and RMR separately or through them which kicks the price but but still a good package.

It’s in the ball park.  Gen III or IV?
Round count estimate?

Looks like a 3. Grip texture isn't right for a 4.


Price is fair, you know the guy, I'd say buy it. All else fails you can always sell it later on down the line.

The glare off the hood would blind ya!

I have often wondered how folks deal with all the glare from overhead lights...???

You either paint or apply a matte black,grey or a similar darker colored decal to the hood to negate any glare. Or slide the light back away from the front of the cab a little bit, or a combination of both.

If you do hit me up, I'll run it with you. And if you want some great places to eat hit Nate up for one of them as the last place he sent me to after I ate their meal I couldn't eat for two days I was so full..... :facepalm:

Sounds like a plan. But currently I'm still doing the paying down debt, while saving money for a trip next March, and a camping/hiking excursion with a couple buddies from Division this July.

Agree Bobby. They had some nice dress ones I was looking at, but at 3 times the cost. This one was 105 after discount. I think it's good enough to wear at the wedding tho... maybe

Yea it'll do the wedding thing. I only have beater watches mostly, 2 GShocks my Suunto and the Seiko SKX. I don't own a watch I'd wear to a wedding or something requiring a little more effort in appearance.

I was thinking I would give you a call when I get it put together, and it hopefully warms up a bit.  That Sig Saur wasn't on my radar before.  Looks nice and a decent price for FFP.  I was looking at the Vortex Strike Eagle as an option but that is SFP.

No worries. I'm usually easy to get a hold of. Some weekends I have to work, but can always swap off Saturdays with a co-worker. Either the Vortex or Sig would be a good option.

Once I get it put together I will do some shooting with the flip up sights to get a feel for it and run it through its paces.  After that I want to put my good scope on to better understand what the gun's capable of. 

Brian, you got my number feel free to give me a call when you want to go shoot. I can come on down that way or you can come up this way. As for a scope hold on...

And that’s pretty much what I said... :knucklehead.

Except I still would not buy the fixed front sight model.  When he wants to go red dot, he’ll want a flip up front sight. IMO, YMMV

Nothing wrong with the fixed front. You can still run the red dot with a fixed front, if you don't like absolute cowitness then run a lower 1/3. He wanted something simple, fixed is as simple as it gets.

Siracha Siracha Siracha.

I think I saw Bobby in traffic.

I can guarantee you didn't as I wasn't in the 101. I was 82nd, I don't have infantry stickers, grunt life, Jump wings with a patch on them, which is funny since the 101 isn't ABN anymore, or cook off stickers.


Plus I have a Jeep Grand Cherokee not a pickup... sadly.

While having morning coffee, and typing this response I had a realization that if I took those oval Afghanistan and Iraq stickers off my Jeep, you'd never know I was a vet. The only other sticker I have on my WK2 is a small dive flag and the military charity I'm a part of. But if you didn't know what you were looking at you wouldn't really tell.

My first deployment (OIF3 05-06), our entire brigade served under II MEF. I'm proud to wear their patch on my right shoulder. Good folks to serve with. I've never had an issue serving with Marines, but that doesn't mean I don't give them a good ribbing. ;-)

3rd deployment (05-06) my BN was split between RCT2 out of Lejeune and the other half was assigned to USASOC. After a spell of up and down the Euphrates river valley we went back together under USASOC. So I have the RCT2 patch and some others.. lol

It wasn't ready as it was.

Springs have settled enough to allow it to ride on and flatten the rubber bumpers. The engine had like no power, not like I'm used to. Suspension not driveline would support where I plan on taking it. And it has spent the majority of its life parked. It needs all those rubber parts gone through, new shocks, and who knows what. The body and interior is great, but while I'm doing all that routine stuff, it makes good sense to go a step or two further and get it done to a good point where it's very capable and a cool fun vehicle to sport around in.

It will work out, you'll see.

Here's what I see:

Replace the springs, yes heavier duty for the upcoming bumpers and etc.

The engine probably had the power, but you've been driving a 6.6 Duramax as a daily so naturally there's a difference in the power you'll feel. I get it as a guy I want immediate power when I hit the go pedal, but you'll adapt to the difference.


Stock shocks aren't expensive, minor upgrades for the suspension and bushing and etc also aren't going to hit your account as hard.

Remember work begets work, well work begets work beget you getting burnt out on a project and having to take a break from said project and the timeline slipping further. I'm not telling you how to spend your own time and money, merely suggesting that you not attempt to get it all done of what you think you want done whereas stuff you should do and get done, are completed knocked off the list and you have a reliable driver for your trip, without going overboard and causing headaches.
