  1. My wife would kill me....but here you go... Vortex Viper PST 1 x 4 A Bulldog case for back and forth to the range Celestron 100 MM spotting scope
  2. I installed the MI FF G2 extended quad rail yesterday. It fits around your front irons. It takes a minor amount of work to remove the delta ring assembly. I also had to drill out the swivel mount pin, but it was all simple, easy, and quick work.
  3. Hi All: I ordered a Burris Mtac and it should be in today or tomorrow. But I was in a store yesterday and I looked through a Leupold Fire Dot scope. I really loved the dot. I am going to take MTAC down and compare it when it comes in. Does anyone use the Fire Dot scope, if so, how do you like it?
  4. Thank you for the response. I ended up pulling the trigger (no pun intended) on the Burris Mtac and the MI extended rail guard today. I'll go ahead and keep the FSB in place, instead of messing with the gas block. The options are endless. Now if only my funds were the same.
  5. Hi All: So, I have been looking at replacing the stock plastic guard on my bushmaster Carbine, and going with the MI G2 FF Extended with cut out and leaving my front iron sights in place. But, I'm also thinking of eventually going to either a Vortex Viper 1x4 or Burris Mtac 1x4 scope. Does anyone know if these scopes can be co-witnessed with the front sight? If I'm going to use the scope, and don't need the front sight, I may as well just remove it and go with another hand guard...right? Unless it can be used in conjunction with the scope. I did see a you tube video where the guy said the Burris Tac 30 could be co-witnessed, So many choices. Any suggestions are welcome.
  6. Do you get any flex or movement with that length FF?
  7. A buddy at work had one. I tried it out. I only threw it down the freeway, ran it up to about 115, and it made me nervous with the way it handled. Probably just because I wasn't used to it. I felt that centrifugal force on cornering would be an issue with these. It was fun, and I wouldn't mind spending some time in the twisties on one.
  8. I love this quote attributed to Heinlein. I may make it my sig... “Women and cats will do as they please, and men and dogs should relax and get used to the idea.”
  9. Great post, thank you for putting that up here. I never felt that any cover of Zep did the band justice. But this rocked. I still love the Zep, but don't listen to them very often, but man I spent alot of time as a kid with the headphones on. Heart has been around forever, but even they had to be a little nervous to play the song that is considered by many to be one of the greatest rock anthems ever, and a Zep masterpiece, in front of the band. Page was digging it, it was hard to read Plant, but it had to be a bit surreal for those guys getting that honor and watching Jason Bonham on the drums. As an aside, I guess I'm the only person that found this statement to be offensive and more than mildly racist?
  10. I haven't read Heinlein in years. He had several ground breaking books and espoused ideas well ahead of their time - especially those dealing with sexuality.
  11. Checking in from Corona, in rainy southern California.
  12. I think that pic was taken just south of Big Sur on Hwy 1. Up past Cambria if I remember correctly. My first street bike was a 600 RR Ninja from that I went to dirt for a few years then back to street with a Suzuki Bandit 1200. My knees made me switch to the X. Cruisers are definitely a different riding style, but for a 850 pound motorcycle the VTX is a surprisingly nimble bike.
  13. Here's a few of my VTX. Here it is set up for 2 up riding 1 up Trip up to Big Sur a few years ago, I just packed up and took off. Stopped when I wanted, and went wherever I wanted without a plan or map. It was awesome. I think one reason I am attracted to the AR platform is because like the VTX, you can mod the hell out of it.
