    First AR Pistol

    The only one of those I have experience with is the old 3.5 and newer (ancient now) 4x ACOG. Totally different optics but for me, unless I were gonna beat the optic to death with rocks, etc, I'd just soon have one of the PAs for my "soft" living environment. My dream prism would be a 2x with only a dot or chevron and I figure out the rest (ahead of time) if needed. I also have a 1x Vortex Spitfire prism which I find gtg. Prisms are my "thing" now due mostly to the etched reticle option.

    Thanks. The trigger is noticeably better than a typical mil-spec and more than good enough if on a budget. Not my cup of tea when compared (imo) to high-quality aftermarket triggers. But if it's strictly for defense, I consider it gtg. I really like the 3x prism. The only thing I don't care for is all the "clutter" which is the drop downs, "moving target" stuff and all that. Not a biggie for I just look through them and don't consider them a distraction. Very good scope. Unless it's very low light, I use the etched reticle vs going illuminated. I also have the 2.5x PA prism on a 5.56 pistol.

    Welcome to the forum. I built a simple 9" 300blk from the cheaper modern series Ballistics Advantage barrel, PSA lower and a Stag lefty upper. I'm sure you'll get a bit more costly recommendations but I wouldn't have a problem going with a PSA lower / upper and adding whatever parts you like. I went with a Kak Slimline Flash Can, SBA3 brace, Matrix handguard, Primary Arms 3x prism scope (300-specific w/ chevron). Believe I have a CMC trigger in it but can't remember at the moment. Functions great, zeroed at 50m and very accurate. As I view the pic, I believe I left the original PSA EPT trigger in place. I have nicer triggers in stock but this one's good enough. So with the 10.5", you're not gonna suppress it?

    As long as the interior diameter is lg enough to accommodate the can you should be gtg.

    Functionally it'll work fine with approx 1/4" sticking out assuming measurements are exact.

    Welcome to the forum. If I'm reading this right, the "can", etc is gonna be mighty short (1/2"ish?) unless they make one that's threaded near the front end and the remainder slides over the barrel.
  7. I see this letter not as a "plea" but as a threat of defunding contributions to politicians. Are any of your corporate interests in this list? https://int.nyt.com/data/documenthelper/1699-gun-control-letter-to-the-sena/3258ed616a016f80dfa3/optimized/full.pdf#page=1 September 12, 2019 Dear Members of the Senate: Our hearts are with the victims, their families and loved ones and all those affected by the tragic shootings El Paso and West Texas , and Dayton, Ohio . These families became members of a club that no one wants to join : the millions of Americans whose lives have been forever altered by gun violence. Every day , 100 Americans are shot and killed and hundreds more are wounded . These are more than mass shootings; in recent weeks, gun violence has devastated Chicago, Canoga Park, Newport News, Gilroy and Brooklyn, among others. This is a public health crisis that demands urgent action. As leaders of some of America's most respected companies and those with significant business interests in the United States, we are writing to you because we have a responsibility and obligation to stand up for the safety of our employees , customers and all Americans in the communities we serve across the country . Doing nothing America ' s gun violence crisis is simply unacceptable and it is time to stand with the American public on gun safety . Gun violence in America is not inevitable ;it's preventable . There are steps Congress can , and must,take to prevent and reduce gun violence .We need our lawmakers to support common sense gun laws that could prevent tragedies like these . That s why we urge the Senate to stand with the American public and take action on gun safety by passing a bill to require background checks on all gun sales and a strong Red Flag law that would allow courts to issue life-saving extreme risk protection orders. Background checks and Extreme Risk laws(also referred to as "Red Flag laws" ) are proven to save lives. Since Congress established the background check system 25 years ago ,background checks have blocked more than 3. 5 million gun sales to prohibited purchasers, including to convicted felons, domestic abusers, and people who have been involuntarily committed . However, in the decades since, the law requiring background checks on gun sales has not been updated to reflect how people buy guns today. The Senate must follow the House s lead by passing bipartisan legislation that would update the background checks law , helping to keep guns out of the hands of people who shouldn't have them , in an effort to save lives. Background checks on all gun sales are a common -sense solution with overwhelming public support and are a critical step toward stemming the gun violence epidemic in this country . Perpetrators of mass shootings , school shootings, and hate crimes often display warning signs before committing violent acts. Additionally, people who end their life with a gun also often show signs that they are in crisis before they act Interventions in states with Extreme Risk laws have already prevented potential tragedies . Expanding Extreme Risk laws to enable families and law enforcement nationwide to intervene when someone is at serious risk of hurting themselves or others is critical to preventing future tragedies.

    Kind of like Kim Komando, the few times I "witnessed" him giving away goods was with a caller who might have had a computer stolen and couldn't replace it, a person with a bad back and couldn't afford a new bed. They never asked for or presented themselves in a poor pitiful me kind of way; he'd just sense their plight and want to help. I thought it was pretty cool. They're sponsors of his show and perhaps that's one small part of their paid advertising.
