    Good Morning!

    Good morning from Northeast Iowa. My wife got a call last night that Hobby Lobby is now closed- so she’s unemployed until at least May 1. John “Remember, no matter where you go, there you are,” —Buckaroo Banzai

    Good Morning!

    Good morning from Northeast Iowa! Has a series of Zoom meetings this morning, here in WAH Iowa- I think we’re bracing to spend the remainder of the school year teaching from home. Announcement expected this afternoon.

    I. Love. This. Carbine!

    So, here’s the thing: it is blowback. This is the BCG And it works great with another charging handle I have, but the one I bought for it, won’t work at all. It won’t even pull back. The the red handle slides in the channel alone and it slides in the upper with the BCG inserted, but as soon as I hinge the upper and lower together, it won’t pull back. The BCG slides into the buffer tube against the spring and buffer by itself, and it cycles just fine with a different handle, including shooting with live ammo. So, where could the tolerance be off? How can I check where it’s catching? John “Remember, no matter where you go, there you are,” —Buckaroo Banzai

    I. Love. This. Carbine!

    It doesn’t even have sights yet! My son and daughter-in-law were here to help with the next phase of the move (have I mentioned that I hate moving?) and we worked hard Saturday night and Sunday (I mean, no church, so why not carry boxes?). Then two more trips early this morning, so we took the afternoon off and busted some clay birds. I had not shot my 9mm yet and he had a new trigger he hasn’t shot yet (remember that stupid binary trigger I talked him out of? Then he got a nice drop-in instead?), so we went down to the rifle/pistol ranges for a little while after. Friends, I. Love. This. 9mm. Carbine. (One caveat, that I’ll tell you about in a little while, but for now...) John “Remember, no matter where you go, there you are,” —Buckaroo Banzai
