  1. It stopped being self defense once the guy backed away and began to turn around. He needs to be charged accordingly.
  2. I was leaning towards Rhino. Still considering it. However I did contact Vault Pro about their safes and they seem very well built and secure. Likely going to go that way.
  3. So I am going to be in the market here soon for a new gun safe. Don't really trust the cheap one I have now. I am looking for recommendations you guys might have. Aiming for the ability to hold roughly 8 or so rifles as well as a few handguns and some other valuables/important documents. I'm not looking for a cheapo one either. I'm all for buying a nice one now and having for a long time. Any suggestions? I have been looking at some from Liberty as well as Rhino Metals but honestly am not sure which way I should go?
  4. Here's my project's from a couple weeks ago....
  5. No pictures this evening as it was dark out by the time i got home but I sold the Ford Ranger I had yesterday and picked up a 2002 F350 Crew Cab long bed today to replace it. Loaded lariat, 7.3 powerstroke 4x4. 130K on the clock.
  6. Spent most the morning shooting. Started by running 250 rounds through the FNX. Shoots great. Not too snappy even with 124gr ammo. Ordered some 9mm in bulk for it this evening. Then I spent the rest of my morning dialing in my gas block on the 308 before zeroing the scope for 100 yards. Shoots a lot nicer with the correct gas setting and didn't have any failures in the 150 rounds I ran through it. All in all good day.
  7. Went out for ammo this afternoon and came back with a gun.... FNX9. Shop happened to have all the FNX line in. I had wanted the 45 but came to the quick realization that its taller grip and longer barrel were going to make concealment a bit harder. Have not shot it yet as it was dark out and raining by the time I made it home.
  8. Got the last few pieces in. Should be able to get the 308 running nice with the adjustable gas block.
  9. Put another 100 or so rounds though the 308 yesterday. Did 20 rounds 1 at a time in the mag, all locked back just fine. Did not have a single failure. However I am getting a consistent 1:30 ejection. Pair that with some cases that look like they are being stripped from the chamber a little early is leading me to believe the gun is a little overgassed. I went ahead and ordered an adjustable gas block for the rifle. Should make things better.
  10. Those marks are from locking lugs in the extension right at the top of the feed lips. I gave the gun a good cleaning and lubed it up as it was quiet dry. I will give it anther try this weekend. Will also try the 1 round in the mag to make sure it locks open each time.
  11. Well guys I need some input. Ran another 6 boxes of ammo through the 308 today. Had 2 failures to feed, both in the exact same fashion. The case if making it halfway into the chamber before being stopped. They both show the same marks in the same location of the case. No issue clearing as simply pulling the charging handle rearward an dropping the mag allows the case to fall free. One of the rounds was PMC 147gr 308W, the other Aguila 150gr 7.62*51. Not thinking it is an ammo issue. Using PMAGS as I don't have any other mags to try. The feed ramps look good with the exception that the feed ramps in the Aero upper don't perfectly match the Faxon extension feed ramps. However I don't think this would be caused by that difference as they are getting stuck at the very top of the feed ramp in the extension. I'm wondering it the sharp edges of the new feed ramps are just catching on the cases?
  12. Got it put together today. Put a mag though it with no issues. Still need an optic.
