    Words of advice from the "seasoned" members.

    When I was young, I thought everyone became wise and knowledgeable as they got older. How mistaken I was! Idiots don't magically transform into smart people with age. They just become older idiots. The moral of the story is to be careful which older person you rely on for wisdom. Because "old idiots" will mislead you.
  2. Yep, he's outta there. But he's gonna fight it, tooth and nail. He actually had the balls to accuse the Governor of playing politics. As Bugs Bunny would say, what a maroon! https://www.sun-sentinel.com/local/broward/fl-ne-ron-desantis-scott-israel-decision-20190110-story.html
  3. He hasn't been suspended yet. And no official statements have been released. But it's a pretty safe bet the new Governor will suspend him. I still think it would have been better for everyone if Israel stepped down. But apparently, he doesn't have the strength of character to do that.
  4. It's an elected position. But the State Governor has the power to suspend him under certain conditions. IIRC, one of those conditions is incompetence. But if the Governor did suspend him, he would have the right to file suit for reinstatement. While I'm sure the suit wouldn't be successful, it would waste time and resources that could be used for something else. Plus it would turn into a media circus. So it would be better for everyone if he just steps down. But he'll probably drag it out, because he's a self-important dirtbag. Side note: I wouldn't put it past that dirtbag to run for political office. If he does, I hope he gets lambasted. He deserves it.
  5. I'm almost embarrassed to admit I helped vote him into office. I say almost, because the other candidate was even worse. It seems the two major political parties have become 'Tyranny A' and 'Tyranny B'. We get to choose who bends us over and rams something up our cornholes. YAY for freedom!

    EoTech 512 or PA 1x6 KISS

    If you need some magnification for target shooting, the scope would probably suit you better. Since it has a 1x magnification setting and an illuminated reticle, you could use it like a red-dot sight for close quarters work. Side note: if this is a home defense weapon, you should consider getting a weapon light (if you don't have one already). Because chances are it'll be dark outside when the bad guys come.

    buffer weight?

    Many of the AR-Stoner barrels are supplied by Bear Creek Arsenal, and quality is hit-or-miss. I wouldn't be surprised if the gas port was drilled to the wrong size. Also, look on the gas tube where it goes into the gas block, and where the gas block touches the barrel. If you see any carbon residue in those places, it means there's a gas leak.

    The rack number on the 604 clone is a nice touch. I did something similar on my A2 replica. On one of my range outings, I had to explain what a rack number was, to a guy who claimed to be former military. LOL

    I have to admit, I can't tell the differences between some of them. But I love how they all have the "lived in" look.

    One more "Last" Build...what should it be?

    I scratched that "different caliber" itch with a 9mm pistol build. It was an interesting project, and a fun little gun. But AR-15s come in so many different calibers. There's lots to choose from. It's a great way to try something new, but still use the AR-15 platform.

    Both eyes, one eye?

    Ditto. And I do the same with iron sights. I learned it when I was in the Army, and it improved my rifle qualification scores. I could scan for the next target without breaking the cheek weld, bring the rifle on target, then close one eye to make the shot.
