    Michael Drejka Found Guilty of

    Observations from the video: A larger formidable man physically acted upon a lesser. Lesser, with gun drawn, did not try to defuse the situation. Man with gun acted after a bit of a delay. My takeaways: If you are in fear of your life you draw and shoot immediately. If you are in a situation like that, collect your wits and take cover. Let the offender have a chance to leave. If the offender makes additional threatening moves, eliminate the threat! But then again, I use to be a LEO.

    He knows how to shoot. I took him to an indoor range about three months ago. Both last time and this time I started him out on a 22LR. He can hit the target... I think he just decided to waste ammo to hear the bang. Kinda like setting off big firecrackers. The part that really pissed me off was that without asking he loaded up an additional two Mags worth and just wasted them which left me without ammo to get my iron sights set on my 18" (he was shooting the 16" after I had got it sighted).

    Yes indeed! Took son-in-law to the range with me. Dang boy was shooting at the ground at times. I had to keep reminding him that each bang was $0.30. He acted like he didn't care. Needless to say, that's going to be his last range visit on my money. He sent me a text last night about going again and my reply was "If you have $70 and four hours afterwards to clean guns, sure!" His response "[emoji1787][emoji1787][emoji1787][emoji1787][emoji1787]". Dick!

    Now I have two complete AR rifles! Went to the range and both now have 100 rounds shot each. Zeroed 18" scoped rifle at 100 yards and 16" red dot rifle at 50 yards. Adjusted buffer weight in both to achieve 3 o'clock ejection with American Eagle XM193. 18" accuracy was less than 1 MOA and 16" accuracy was less than 2 MOA. This is "as seen" on the one inch grid targets because the range was too busy to retrieve and measure their performance.

    Midway USA sucky Customer Service (Again)

    I've never tried that approach. I usually know what a really good price is for what I'm buying. I've only dealt with OP for a little over a year now. They've always been great to deal with (from my experience), even if it wasn't their fault.

    Midway USA sucky Customer Service (Again)

    Optics Planet has always treated me right! Just recently I received a Del-Ton Essential Parts Kit that was short an o-ring. I called them and asked if they could just put an o-ring with another item that's on order and waiting to be shipped. Their response, they have shipped me another Kit at no charge. That's customer service way above and beyond!

    Anderson Lower Parts Kit with Stainless FCG

    Yeah... I've got to get my CC payed off then buy another stripped lower to finish my second AR-15. For now the lower I have completed has to pull double duty.

    Have any of you tried Gorilla Maching? http://www.gorillamachining.com/Gorilla-Machining-AR-15-223556-Complete-Lower-Parts-Assembly-kit-Gen-2-NiB-Coated_p_524.html I've had good results with them and when I did experience a problem they had phenomenal customer support.

    I'm a dummy. How do I tell an ALG trigger from OE?

    Couldn't you quickly tell by pivoting the upper open?

    New Heinz Upper on previously built lower: 25 Yard SPR Rough Sighting:

    Update... Decided to take the light and laser off of this upper. Built another 16" CMV QPQ Nitride 1:8 Carbine-Gas NiB M4/Chaber Upper and put them on it. So basically I have a SPR upper and a Heinz 57 Upper. Right now I'm using the same lower for both and getting approximately 3 o'clock ejection from both uppers with a H Buffer. Not much shooting done but I've got 25 rounds through each upper and rough sighted at 25 yards. They are cleaned and ready for the next outing! I'll be back to provide a few pics.
