    Thanks for the report, I'm just gonna do a little bit of 30-30 here and there because it isn't too cheap but I also dont shoot enough to warrant a legit press. When i move onto .308 or 9mm I'll look into one

    This will be his first AR. He’s done 80% 1911s and Sig P228s with excellent resuls.

    plumbing. whole house water filter broke and dumped main water unchecked into the basement. only good note is I put all the soggy boxes of ammo in the big shed which is freezing inside right now, so mold can't take hold until I get a chance to deal with all of it.

    I don't know yet if there's water in the extreme bottom of the big safe. I opened it to check, and the bottom drywall board is dry on top, so i'm hoping it's minimal moisture in it. I'm working on getting everything out.

    soaked all the way up to the other side of the house, and by my desk.

    amazingly it's not under the desk.

    sadly, it's my 3rd rodeo with this shit. 3 different reasons too. think it might be the last time with carpet.

    when we moved in, the old owners had stick down tile on the concrete floor. starting to wonder if there wasn't a reason.

    I wish you luck dealing with the mess. Really hate those kinds of detours that throw your regular life away until you get past them.

    I just might buy that Ruger 22/45 Lite from my friend. We shot it yesterday with and without the can. I'm thinking that topped with a Vortex Venom, it would be a really fun little range toy.
    I just need to find out it there are safety extensions available. And possibly a new trigger to get rid of that asinine magazine safety.

    I actually think you need a hammer bushing on the Mark 2's and 3's to ditch the mag safety

    And there is a slingshot mod so you don't need to use the bolt release after inserting a new mag after the last shot of the previous mag, just pull the bolt back to release
