    They aren't playing around.
    I ordered a few things Sat. night, and they came in Wed. morning.

    OK folks. Enough of this idle chit chat. This ain't no retirement home.

    That's a tough question.
    I'd recommend consulting some teenagers, and a few Congress critters.
    Those are the best folks at spending someone else's money that I've ever found.

    So true or you could call the whole exercise off by asking the wife for suggestions. With the added bonus of finding out what furniture and several household items cost these days.

    I started getting emails several days ago from about everyone. Some good deals, some the same as earlier in the year. Found Nikon scopes on one sight about 50% off

    We all do our duty when there is not cost to it, honor comes easier then. Sooner or later there comes a day in every man's life when it is not so easy, a day when he must choose and live with it for the rest of his days.

    When Christmas came around my wife would ask my buddy what I wanted for Christmas.
    I got some really great stuff too.

    His wife would ask me what he wanted.
    It worked, but after a few years, she said, "He likes new guns,,,, but your ideas are so expensive"

    I'm thinking it will probably be Primary Arms for me. Not really sure yet. I need some rear sights for an AR or two.

    They have a complete AR upper in 458 SOCOM for $239. It’s going to be hard for me to resist that.

    It's going in a Hatsan 30 cal air rifle. The gun metal grey I perfect for the rifle. The scope will parrallax down to 10yds.

    I plan on this being my squirrel gun. I'm not a hunter but want to start.

    I have a Bushnell Forge FFP and an Engage. I have been happy with for thier price point.

    I have waited on sale items only to have them sell out.

    Never saw them use flat rate.
    They have their own packaging I thought.

    Be careful with what scope you put on that air rifle. They have a different recoil impulse than a traditional rifle and can shake a scope apart. Better to get a scope designed for an air rifle.

    I've been hankering for an upper for my PSA Gen 2 AR-10 lower for months now. But I just can't decide whether to go .308 or 6.5 Creedmoor.

    And I can't decide what role I want the rifle to play. Hunting or punching holes in paper.

    Whatever upper I get for the AR will be mirrored by a bolt gun in the same caliber for convenience.

    But, PSA doesn't really have any special deals on either caliber and the .308 upper I nearly pulled the trigger on a couple of weeks ago is now actually $70 more.

    I gave in and bought a .450 Bushmaster AR Stoner upper from Midway last year and have been very happy with it so far.

    I’d get the 308. 175 gr SMK at 2450 FPS will punch through a lot of things. 150 gr partitions are also good to have on hand.
