    I’m glad to no longer be on the FD some days

    One of the reasons I decided to leave our local search and rescue, I have packed/ assisted helping out adults out that I did not believe would make it. Last one was a three maybe, four year old escaped the house parents noticed went looking fast forward hours ahead cant find him we are paged out. Location is an hour away top of a mountain on a good day not our spring where there is still 3-5 feet of snow, chains and a healthy 4x4 to access. Get to the location, Father has found the child in a thawing iced over pond. The pond is maybe 3/4 a mile from the road/home, the child being light could easily walk on the crust. We crashed/ waded the whole way down threw the snow. Child was blue, A volunteer fire fighter/ search and rescue member and I get there first. We administered CPR while our local life flight was on the way, felt like the longest 45 minutes of my life. That one still haunts my dreams.

    Palmetto State armory question

    Nothing against PSA but I decided to torque it myself, They were quick to a response. They messaged me back the next day ready to get a shipping label to me.

    Palmetto State armory question

    I've bought from them several times in the past. The GF as a kit that is theirs. And it's great. Couple k down the tube no problems

    Palmetto State armory question

    That's my thoughts as well.. I've assembled many many rifles. But I've shot them an email. See what they say. Won't touch it until then. Just freaks me out. What if it was Joe blow that didn't know better. Or if I let the GF try it out and those threads pulled when she shot it?
  6. Hello gentlemen. Been a long time since I have posted but believe me I lurk. Pretty much every day! Damn homestead has kept me busy. I've been adding to my collection of course. Well I decided to buy a pistol kit from psa, just got it today. I had the lower complete besides buffer tube and brace so I spun those on slapped a DD rear sight on and decided to walk the property with the GF. Fast forward to now. As we walked along I of course fingered my new toy. And the front sight/ handguard felt to wiggle. I kept telling myself that's me not used to a non free float tube test fired half a mag as it is cold and getting dark. So I get home and my wiggling discover the barrel nut is loose. Only thing stopping it from spinning free is the gas tube hitting the barrel nut indexing points? Anyone heard of psa having bad quality control lately? I know it's not torqued to minimum. That's scary I sent them an email to see what they say. But now I'm second guessing them. What's the Armory say?

    Been a way from the bench for a while

    First thing I'm going to change on my g20 is the sights. Lol
  9. Been away from my favorite spot for a while. Helping family with a little bull. But now skies are clear and with my children needing food I'm back at the bench. Any favorite 10mm or 308 loads amongst the armory reloaders? The 10mm I received as an awesome present from my girlfriend. I'm walking into this caliber blind. I knew I wanted one but never actually read any data on loading for her. I know I want to pack the heavier loads for it.

    So what did you guys get for Christmas?

    Between my brother in law and gun dealer, my gf figured out I had been eyeing a glock G20 for a while. For her I picked her up PSA upper and all the fixings for a nice set up.

    Gifting the disease..

    She did mention say that she wanted to learn about ars. I've had her out shooting a bunch but always behind my rifles she enjoyed it. I'm hoping she enjoys her own rifle just as much. I bought all the parts in fde just in case she wants a purple rifle (her favorite color). I shudder at the thought but if it makes her happy and gets her to shoot more with me, I will be very stoked.

    I think I have her stocked now. Thanks guys! I think I'll add a couple girly things to her stocking after this. Chocolate maybe some earings laying on top lol. It's been hard for me not to go shoot it. But its wrapped in the pile of parts now.
