is the wait. Nothing like spending money for something that you might not see for the better part of a year – if all goes well. I ended up following my own advice and got something ready for a Form 3 instead of what I wanted; it would have been nice to have a can that worked on the mounts I already have, but you can’t always get what you want. One thing that was interesting is that I’ve bought all of my other Title II stuff at retail (essentially); using a local non-retail SOT, I got the can (with sales tax) for several hundred dollars under MSRP. Hurrah!
This also gives me a forcing function to pick up a major caliber rifle. Right now, I have a caliber gap between 223 and 50BMG; obviously, I got this can because it supports 300WM, so that’s the caliber I’ll be getting. I should have done this a while ago, but I ended up spending that money on a pickup truck I no longer want or need. I’m torn between selling it and keeping it; too small for me, but has actual 4WD and a locking rear diff. Maybe I should build it out as a technical in order to decrease the already pathetic gas mileage.
Cop with ride-along citizen respond to burglary-in-progress. Cop covers getaway vehicle, citizen jumps out and chases burglar. Other citizen sees what he thinks is a cop in danger, opens fire.
Really makes me re-evaluate not moving to Texas a couple years ago.
Video gets scary around 0:35 to 0:45. Nothing to watch after that; before that, you get to see an AWACS nearly take out a tanker.
To the surprise of exactly nobody in the AK47 market, Lancaster Arms was hit with another judgement; this time, for $70,000. I will use my internet funball and predict exactly $0 of this settlement will be paid, he’ll open shop under another name, and the cycle will begin again.
