    Re: Everything Guns (Part 2)



    Cool story Solo. Speaking of barracks, a friend of mine was stationed at Da Nang air base in Nam. On the day
    he got on the plane to come home he got a message that the VC attacked the base and blew up his barracks
    an hour after he left with everyone in it.

    Lol. I killed a stereo once. But that's another story.

    The reason I ask was because a friend of mine who came over for dinner saw my cleaning stuff on my dining room table and gave me the business for cleaning indoors. In all the years I've been around firearms, I've never been told you should not clean indoors.

    He claims there's too much lead exposure. From everything I've been taught, if you have jacketed ammo (which is 99% of all ammo) you have no danger if lead exposure. In fact, you get far more lead exposure at an indoor range than you do by cleaning a gun.

    Well, after a full year, I finally got all the paperwork back from the ATF for my first NFA firearm. I am going to pick it up today.

    Well, here it is. It's still naked so I'll be busy this weekend adding optics, grips, etc.

    That is sick, but definitely naked.

    Looks like an EOTech would work perfectly on that.

    EOTech is so expensive though.

    I have something comperable on the way. When the build is done, I'll post pics.

    I did a test fire today and OMG it's sweet. I was the only guy at the range, got to take my cans off and it's soooo quiet!!!

    Angled forgrip.

    I have 45 degree rapid transition sights so the angled grip allows you to twist the gun from the holographic sights to the iron isn't much easier.

    Thanks. Half the price of EOTech.

    It would be interesting to see how many NRA members have died from lead exposure.

    Does Russia still use the AK-47. Their soldiers were on TV in the Urkrane and it looked like they had the same rifles that our boys use above. See Solo's pic above.
