    I had a compass, but without a map, it's just a cool toy to show you where oceans and ice are.

    What is the vest? Is it just molly or is it ballistic.

    Nice score on the DPMS lower. Most common mistake on a build I believe is knocking that ear off. I am surprised that your buddy gave it a way for free. I wouldn't give a hundred some odd dollar receiver away because I broke a trigger guard ear off.

    Lots of generators that don't run down here just have clogged jets from that damned ethanol in the gas. Not to be confused with the damned good ethanol in the glass!


    Good on you for having a great day and great scores. What are you thinking on building with the DPMS?

    The vest is ballistic.

    Not sure what I'm going to build.....I gotta see what parts i have laying around. I know I have a barrel, forearm, upper, bolt, handle, spring kit, buffer, trigger, and a grip.....may have some more....but I gotta look.
