Small Victories

Spent most of the day at school (got there for a 9:30am class, got home right about 9pm... had an hour in there for lunch...) and came home to a package from Bravo Company with a couple Lancer translucent mags and more importantly, the "correct" handguards for my M16A2 clone. The muscle memory is still there after all these years (almost 5!) and they just feel right. The oval ones do fill up my hands nicely, and help avoid cant, but my issued gun had round ones, so damn it, I wanted round ones.

On a side note, my initial feelings towards the Lancer mags is kinda meh. The see throughness is neat, but the follower is about as anti-tilt as 1st Gen GI 30 rounders. I don't see it as being a problem for me, but still...

Another side note, Bravo Company's all of a three hour drive from here. It's pretty cool to get the shipping notice one day, and the item the next day, and only pay for the basic shipping.
