    No changes. Checkups annually now

    Yeah. The small nodule on my pancreatic head that could be a carcinoid tumor hasn't changed in 2 years.
  2. Had my 6 month checkup. No changes shown on my CT Scan from baseline of 2 years ago. They extended my checkups from 6 months to once a year. This will save me about $1,600 out of pocket. My insurance pickups up the total cost of 1 CT Scan a year. The second they only pay for if I meet my annual out of pocket.

    Is being gay wrong?

    Wrong? It depends on your beliefs. I have no problem myself with someone who's gay. As long as we're talking about age appropriate relationships. The same goes for heterosexual relationships too. It's a harder path than being heterosexual. Traditional marriage and children is easier because of biology and societal norms. At least that's how I see it. At 16 attraction for the same sex didn't used to mean you were gay when I was growing up. Now sexuality begins at such an early age that many are coming out as gay. In the past they might have grown to love someone of the opposite sex by the time they were 19 or 20. It's a complicated subject, with no easy answer.
  8. This post sent me to the Little Crow Gunworks site. I purchased the gas block assembly tool. I did ream my gas tube with the tool for the gas tube and the Superlative Arms adjustable gas block. Talk about easy to install the roll pin. Like I said I'm a tool junkie. Another nice piece of kit.

  11. Finally got to the range with my 300 Blk SBR. I shot my Sharps first at 200 yards. Then I moved to the 50 Yard target to adjust my gas block. It's an Superlative Arms DI adjustable gas block. I was shooting suppressed. After getting the bolt to hold back on the single round I loaded, I sighted in my MRO. Wow it was way low. It took me 3 shots to get on paper. There was almost no wind today. A rarity in Corpus Christi. I was shooting 220gr subsonics. My best group was just under 1". I'm not sure what to expect with a 2 moa dot. Guess I should expect 1" at 50 yards. Duh. Now about the charging handle. I've shot my 5.56 SBR upper and remember getting blasted with gas to the face. I know the subs are much tamer, but I do shoot suppressed. I didn't feel gas to my face. The Superlative Arms adjustable gas block is supposed to vent excess gas too. Not sure how much it lessens gas to the face. Anyway I was pleased with lack of gas to my face. Next range trip I'm going to take my BCM Gunfighter charging handle and see it there's a difference. I also plan on bringing my 5.56 upper and using the Raptor SD charging handle to see how it performs.

    My google fu is strong. Dimensional Firearms LLC https://www.thefirearmblog.com/blog/2015/03/11/dimensional-firearms-shocker-lower-receiver/ Some things make me stop and appreciate a product, some things make me guffaw, and sometimes you run across a crazy product that combines both. The Dimensional Firearms LLC lower receiver is just that. Instead of reinventing a wheel, they have produced an original safety/selector marking scheme. Safe is a “peace” sign, semi “the bird” and full is rather… shocking.
