    Lloyd Smale replied to a thread Apple season! in Cookin' Recipe's
    crappy year for me. Not many apples and the ones I got were small. I think it was a combo or an off year and a real bad year for aphids. I sprayed my trees 5 times this summer and still didn't kill them all. Lots of cherries plumbs and peaches...

    Yep, an SBR or machine gun can both be “pistols” with stocks. You can also put a 16”+ barrel on a pistol and stock it as well. “Kits” have been made for a few different pistols over time as well as dedicated “uppers” to convert them. Being a...
