Another AR PDW Stock Option

I just saw this one today, looks like they just hit the market pretty recently.  MVB Industries has theirs available through Amazon at a price lower than the others I have seen out there.


It only has two positions (open and closed), but really, what more do you need for one of these?  It also features a neat little latch that catches the buffer inside the stock, allowing you to "shotgun" the rifle, rather than having to slide the upper forward off the lower.

I'd love to get my hands on one...

Ugh

On a positive note, when I get done working in a half hour, there's very few people to compete with for a treadmill at the gym.

On a not so positive note... bleg. Overnight shifts...

Thanks

Thanks to all my brothers and sisters for your collective sacrifice.

Situational Awarness Time!

Watch this video, but do yourself a favor and pause at the 30 second mark.  What would you do, and why?  What cues do you pick up and what do they tell you?



Hopefully, you'd do something very similar to what the driver did here.  No lights, not even hazards, a couple traffic cones, no reflective wear on the goblin.  You should be saying "this looks sketchy as %&^#" and getting out of dodge.

Thankfully this one has a relatively happy ending.  Two guys getting picked up strongly suggests the other goblin was ready to hop the center divider and carjack the driver while his partner distracted him on the passenger side.

Sadie Update

She managed to pick up a good case of the sniffles at the shelter, and gets grumpy when you try to comb the boogers out of her tail.  We saw the vet this afternoon and got some kitty cold meds, hopefully that helps.

Otherwise, like I've found throughout most of my life, windows make all the difference.

Shield = Sad Face

Also during last Friday's range trip, I finally got a chance to shoot a S&W Shield.  I was very excited when it came out, and thought it might be a great carry gun for me... but sadly it has the same issue as Sigs do for me.  The slide stop is directly where my thumb rests, and the slide locked back on empty exactly zero times.  It could be argued that since I have to carry a Sig at work, that I should train more to get over it, but I don't think that's the best answer.

I guess back to my original thought of just getting an M&P9c, or possibly track down an LC9s to fondle.

M&P Bitz Report

Hit up the range yesterday with one of my coworkers. Chilly, but ran some rounds through a few of our guns.  A good day overall.

I'm more than impressed with the 10-8 u-notch rear.  I don't have a timer, but it sure felt faster.  Sharp, clear, uncluttered.

The Apex/10-8 collaboration floor plates are also pretty nice. I didn't notice any difference while shooting, but I felt like I had more control during reloads.

If I have any issues in the future, I'll be sure to report them.
