    got my wife's 39a with no FTF after putting a washer behind the hammer spring.
    Also with a new lever, the LSHO works on my marlin 795 semi.

    didn't get a chance to try out my DIY pcv target holder.

    Target?

    Saw a GI water can, similar to gas can but with larger flip-lid, converted to a woodstove in a VW bus. Better than the stock heater/defrost.

    I saw a blue tooth stereo made from a jerry can and another out of a .50 cal ammo can. They were both cool as hell.

    There's LOTS of cool stuff that can be made from ammo cans, especially the 20mm ones.

    -mini bar (jack and coke)
    -radio/nvidia shield tablet dock, light etc... (to replace my old jeep radio/tv that i stupidly sold at a garage sale before i owner a liberty)
    -power pack/air compressor work light (roadside assistance box)
    -still figuring out the 4th one.

    Anyone know where I can find a cheapish A2 fixed carry handle stripped AR receiver? Cheapest I can find is around $100. That seems crazy compared to A4 receivers that are $40. Want to build a 9mm pistol (eventual SBR) AR and need a carry handle AR in my collection.

    that's the going rate for A2 uppers now, brownells or midway will have the best prices AFAIK and brownells has an awesome return policy. you have to keep in mind, there are way more A4 uppers being produced than A2 uppers, thats why a4 uppers are a bit cheaper

    does walmart still sell 22lr ammo?

    I didn't even see a price label for 22lr in the ammo glass cabinet at my local store.

    I think I've been missing from this thread for too long. Here's a little bump.

    yea. was going to just go for one of the cheaper build kits, but for the extra cost i'll get a better grip, stock, handguard. want to make sure I have a couple "zombie hoard" guns handy. I'll post up the build when I'm done.
