  1. Thank you. I actually dropped this off at a local shop that manufactures suppressors and does cerakoting, and it’s getting makeover now. They were looking at it today and they said it appeared they did no prep work to the titanium tube before using whatever coating they used at AAC. It was just flaking right off with a fingernail Going with a three color multicam pattern, using black, graphite gray, and flat dark earth. Going for a modified look similar to this - Looking forward to seeing it when its done.
  2. So I was cleaning some cans they have been long overdue for a cleaning and I dumped the baffles out of this can like I always do, and let them soak in some hoppes for a bit before I scrub them. I don’t do ultrasonic on these since all but the blast baffles are aluminum. I stick the tube in there as well as the pistons and let them soak for about 20 mins or so. I pull the tube out first since it’s easiest to clean and go wipe it down and a bunch of the finish comes clean off. I had some nicks in the finish that weren’t a big deal but this is a whole new level. I have kicked around the idea of getting it cerakoted black multicam or kryptek typhon, so I guess this just forced the issue.

    Where were you on 9/11?

    I was at MCRD San Diego at my first day of recruit training. We flew in the night before and we were processing in. We did not know what happened for a few days, they did not tell us until any recruits that may have had family in the attacks could be identified and sent home.

    So, Who Is At The Bench Today?

    Finished all 200 of the 300 win mag loads today, this should last me a while.

    So, Who Is At The Bench Today?

    A co worker gave me a 5 gallon bucket full of 300 win mag brass, so this weekend I have been cleaning and prepping a couple hundred of them to load up some more Barnes 200g LRX bullets. I cleaned my local shop out of H1000 so I can load up some more of my tried and true recipe. That load has taken two bull elk in two years and I am hoping to get another next month.
  6. This was actually out by Burns and not close to baker (which is where I live pretty much). About a 4 hour drive from here out in the desert.

    Labor Day plans

    Staying in air conditioning as much as possible. Supposed to guide my brother in law to some mule deer that he can stick an arrow in, but it’s going to be like 105 degrees so I am going to either make an excuse to get out of it or stay in the running pickup while he stalks one.

    Hmmm I wonder how true this is

    Weapons accuracy and attitude

    Holy font size Batman. I see the good enough attitude with hunters constantly. Just test one round at camp at 25 yards and if it hits anywhere on a Paper plate it’s good. These same hunters you will then see having a rage fit because they shot a box of shells at an elk at 200 yards and did not hit a thing, blaming their scope or their gear or ammo or whatever. I like knowing exactly where my stuff is shooting at all ranges before I go out. Every year I verify zero with at least a box of shells, but I get told I’m the one wasting ammo. I would rather waste a box of shells at paper adjusting my zero and use a single shot on an elk, rather than the opposite. But what do I know, I have only had two years in the last 15 where I haven’t gotten an elk and it wasn’t because I missed. 🤷🏻‍♂️

    Epstein dead

    I guess they only had him on suicide WATCH, not suicide STOP.

    How would a universal BGC change gun buying?

    We have it in Oregon, you just have an FFL handle the transfer and the check and they do charge you a fee, which I have had the buyer pay on their end. It’s a PITA

    Choosing the third option would be best - boogaloo
