So last night I got bored and asked the girls for some nail polish.

Color filled the engraving on my glock with the closest color I could find to the FDE frame.




Also color filled my AR lower while I wait for the upper to come back. Then I'll sell it. woohoo...



took all of 30 minutes.

Looking at the BLM map, there is no BLM land anywhere in the area. I know that the land there was in limbo for a while a few years ago but I have no idea about now. Anybody know?

Was the bad upper enough to make you decide to sell it?

Yes, the bad upper, and the ridiculous customer service from spikes tactical put a bad taste in my mouth, and so far i havent seen or found a good enough reason to stay in the AR game.

P.S. the upper is on its way back to me now

We used to have almost the exact same rail. The motor is easily $3000 in it. Probably $800 in wheels and tires easily there. Shocks are easily a grand if not more. Etc... Too bad you're not staying anywhere it's useful. LOL

Check it in the background here...

Marn, serious question... What's the point in blurring out the serial on the gun? What's your concern with that being public info?

I dont really care that much, but what with 3d printing and home made guns (specifically AR's), and the popularity of AR's, and what not, it just dont need the serial numbers being in plain view on several different websites.

Huh, I just noticed our 3D printer is running right now. I wonder what my coworker is making! LOL

Was only asking cause I never really considered the serial on my pistol of any concern as long as the gun stays in my possession obviously and wouldn't really have ever thought or considered blurring it out in a picture. Then again I've never taken a picture of mine.



Oh and the fabtec show is cool for about an hour imo unless you're really into steel forming manufacturing equipment. Like BIG stuff. Although, I did see a hydrodip setup that was actually very cheap to get into! Like less then my Expo cost and you could dip wheels, guns, and tons of stuff in it. Pretty large tank yet not too big for a home setup at all. The cost included a trip to Miami for training and everything. The film isn't really even that cheap either. Anyone looking to start a side company, it would probably be a cool side gig with not very much investment!

Holy canoli.

Turns out the first time i sent my upper to spikes, it took them 2 months to mail me a new one. It wasnt mine...it was a new one.

That one was messed up.

They got that one back last week, and then they repaired my ORIGINAL one, and sent it back to me. Apparently the original one "just needed some good old fashioned gunsmithing"
