Here's a good 1 for you Mega. Any plans to get Tommy into it (The Arts that is). Unrelated, I've been thinking about it on/off for previous months. Whenever I get some more life back, tempted...

Can't do it dude, Tommy has haemophilia factor 11 (the rarest kind), so although he's a pretty full on kid who plays football all the time we do have to draw the line at actually being punched in the head. His condition is one of the more mild forms but there are still risks.

Martial arts are great for fitness and balance but mainly useless in a real life self defence situation unless you're a really dedicated practitioner with great muscle memory and quick reactions. The rest of us will stick to "windmilling" in bars.

I got rid of the Mesa Tactical side saddle recently. If you're going to leave shells in there, you're going to have to use the white tubing or else it's going to get loose fast. Even with the white tubing, it still gets loose. Switched to an Ares Gear shell card

I can't get into pistol grips or even pistol grips with a stock. While they're more ergonomic, ergos are less important to me than recoil management, weapon control, and reload speed.

The Big Dot sights are basically point shooting sights. Put the big white dot on the target and squeeze. I swear by them

The one's I can't stand are the three dot sights. Too much shit going on in front of my eyes. I also don't want my brain to subconsciously want to line up dots when I just really need to be squeezing the damn trigger

The one's I REALLY can't stand are stupid triangle sights like the ones that come on Steyr's

I'm completely the opposite on pistol+stock. Better (less) recoil, especially with a buffered stock, better control with a pistol grip, and probably better, but certainly not slower, reloading, be it into the chamber or magazine. Easy to keep it on target while doing so one-handed. Not that I dislike a classic grip and stock either though.
Think it, be it.

I want to be the guy in the back row

Interesting they use bull pups. Can't figure out how they use the flashlight though

Not sure either... There are two though aren't there, one crenellated? I was thinking one was visible light and one IR.

These are marines FWIW.

Not sure. IR is usually used in conjunction with some sort of night vision, and I don't see any optics on their rifles or their helmets

So I'm seriously considering building an AR15 on a Noveske/VLTOR platform...

I don't know what the second acronym is but I want an AR.

I would use completely different accessories, but the upper, rail and lower would look like this



I would go with a gen 3 lower though

Do you like those angled foregrips? They seem to make sense but I have not tried one.

I use an angled foregrip on my DDM4 from Fortis and it's great. The only thing is that it conducts heat from the rail

I'm going to modify my previous statement regarding angled fore grips. Wound up taking it off the DDM4. It's fine for moving and shooting, but having your arm out in an extended grip makes your arm really tired during a long range session
