    ah, yes, gun control, the second least American thing I have heard this week, behind the body boarding ban of course.

    Metatard that is one fine freedom dispenser you have there.

    Baddy don't be dumb or I'll start trolling you with your own comments again. Is something from 150+ years ago relevant to this discussion? Dig up a N v S thread and play over there. You had the opportunity to learn some good info on quality optics hopefully you took it. Let the men talk about our toys and you can take in some knowledge along the way.

    Hey man the south won the civil war in about a thousand ways, who's to say we lost? We may not be our own country but we still one. We have more gun and trailors in the south per capita than people have high school dipolmias and if that doesn't sway your thought, South Carolina has the best educational system out of any state in the world . Viva la south

    I can't afford to put one of the holy trinity (Trijicon, Aimpoint, or EOtech) on every one of my rifles so I've been checking out some of the budget RDS offering and I have to say that I really like the Vortex Strikefire. It's held zero after hundreds of rounds of 5.45x39, 7.62x39, and 5.56. I haven't tried it on a .308 gun yet. I also have the Sparc which has a 2 MOA dot compared to the 4 MOA on the Strikefire. I haven't tested it with as many rounds but it also seems to hold zero. You can adjust windage and elevation on both and the biggest downside IMO is the battery life. There's a good multi-part article on budget RDS at The Bang Switch: http://www.thebangswitch.com/budget-red-dot-sight-comparison-part-1/

    The next optic I want is the new Meprolight Tru-Dot. It'll go on this:


    As with most states (and this country in general), Maryland approved some retarded gun-related legislation last year which caused me to put my firearm collecting into overdrive.

    They made non-HBAR AR rifles prohibited (though you can still buy HBARs cash-n-carry?!) so I stocked up on lowers:


    The MSP did just announce that lower receivers were once again non-prohibited since there are some configurations that are legal: HBARs, pistols, and presumable SBRs (still waiting for clarification on that).

    Kalashnikov rifles were also made prohibited in all forms ("Avtomat Kalashnikov semiautomatic rifle in any format") so I had to ensure my kids would be able to know the joy of the AK when they're... um, born :)


    AK pumpkin fun:

    I also made sure that I picked up a PTR-91. I don't have any pics of that yet. The ones that got away: M1A, FN FAL, more AKs...

    I take my advice back. Pretty much any red dot will work with a 22.
