    We'll be looking at stuff at least 150 miles away from any of these problematic population centers when we assess moving locations heading into next year.

    What do you think of this thing?

    No parallax = the triangle is always the point of aim at any angle (still subject to range/zero ofc) and no batteries required. It's not see-through though. It's like the bastard child of a red dot and some big ass irons.
    Nowadays when people start to get killed by fireballs, no one says they need to dodge the fireball anymore; they say they need to go get a fire resist ring and some ice damage so they don't have to.

    Weird... but I love the red dot. Too many vidya games, it's the most natural to me.

    That Remington rifle gave me an erection.

    These were on sale for $44 before. The standard price has now been lowered to $47, if anyone was interested.

    Looking at the Bushnell site and Amazon, the one-piece tall version is completely gone. There's now a "high rise" version that is just the low one with a riser. They're probably phasing out the two models/SKU's and will eventually just sell the high rise as just the only version that "comes with a riser" so this is liquidation of the old boxes without risers I guess.

    There's also something that looks identical, called a TRS-26 from another company. That's 86% off right now at $22. Not sure if it's a knockoff or what. Bushnell makes a TRS-26 as well but it doesn't look like the TRS-25...

    This is the next optic I want.

    Then I'll work on saving for this one.

    It'll take me awhile to save up for it.

    I'm determined to one day have some sick HD thermal shit on my rifle. It would be wasted on me right now since my fundamentals are shit but I can't even afford the guns yet anyway, nevermind more optics. Once I've got them though, I'm starting a savings account (or might even get a loan/credit card for it...) to get something like this. The old Predator movies put the idea in my head as a little kid and I never let it go.

    Right, you need to have the "muh rifle" before you go throwing some overpriced optics with 16 hours of battery life on there. I'd only want the type of Optic you linked if I was taking up life as a professional sniper or *something*.

    Ordering some AR customizations this week. Since I can't afford that snazzy SASS yet. Hopefully Aeinna's shotgun comes off back-order.

    I've got the money and the time next week. I've got my locking case being delivered today. I'm out of excuses. I'm out of alternatives to consider. Barring any unforeseen problems I'm going to go try to purchase either an RDB or a KSG next week. I'd like to get the RDB but I'm not sure they'll have one just on a rack somewhere. If that needs to be ordered but they have a KSG on hand, I'll just take the KSG. I want both and a pistol eventually anyway.

    Hell yeah. Love the KDB but that KSG is kinda "taciticool" overkill - pretty fucking nice that it holds 12+1 12 gauge shells though. I can see why you'd grab it in your situation. Shit ever goes bad you're gonna be in a nogpocalypse.



    Best part about the RDB is it uses standard AR-15 magazines, so all those 30RD Magpul magazines I have pre-loaded could be put to more use - now I want one eventually. Always loved the bullpup design. Put a decent red dot or reflex sight on there...

    What I ordered today to further customize the AR.

    <---this replaces the Vortex I mentioned above. Was on sale and I watched quite a few reviews. Thing is a tank, takes a standard AA battery, and has like 5 years of battery life so it never needs to be turned off.

    Will add this and a 2 point tactical sling later to complete my budget friendly AR.

    You should consider driving over to VA to pick up your shit. Your state gun laws really are terrible and it'll be costly and slow to even be able to get your gun transferred.
