edit for smaller pic



(note i didnt realize how ugly the welds were until now... hopefully the gun i get has better... i might have to start welding my own receivers if thats the case...)

anyways. i have wanted one of these for a while. i was just trying to be good about my money. however starting 12 hour days come jan 2 and the threat of increasing prices (literally an email saying prices will go up come jan 1 from the seller) i decided to jump on it.

my goal for it eventually is SBR and suppressor with some sub sonic loads. i havent researched the capability of .308 for this but im assuming it wont be hard considering 300blk is becoming popular...

(2nd edit, if they can make a .30cal round shoot well out of a .556 case im assuming a light loaded .308win can be fired well. however im not sure how it would play out with the twist rate/velocity/weight. also im sure a 7.62x51 out of an 8.5"bbl will be wasting a lot of powder, so im figuring it would be more efficient to use less powder when reloading anyways.)

Of course everyone is out of stock.

Brownells sold more magazines in 3 days, than they usually sell in 3 years.

People have gone stupid, when it comes to EBRs and their accessories.

my "panic" was mostly because the website put out an add saying the price was going to go up... i felt comfortable paying this price and decided to grab it in case it does go up.

not too worried about a ban but it may come... im really considering selling a bunch of my guns now and thin my safe down and getting rid of all but a few of my EBRs...

Teach me Mr. Miagi

There are really only four commas you need to know to get by. 

1) Compound sentences. When you have a sentence with a conjunction (If, and, but), and BOTH sides of the conjunction could stand alone as their own sentence, you need a comma. If only one of them could, then you do not use a comma. 

Example: Stealth got a girl a glass rose, but she didn't like it. 

Stealth got a girl a glass rose. Period. Could be a sentence. 

She didn't like it. Period. Could be a sentence. 

Requires a comma. 

2) Introductory clauses and phrases. When you have a really short beginning nugget to a sentence that isn't a complete sentence in its own, you use a comma if it us longer than three words.

Example: This time last year, I was making a skin hat out of my neighbor. 

"This time last year" could not stand alone and there is no conjunction, so it requires a comma. It's also longer than three words. 

3) Nonessential clauses and phrases. You have to offset stuff in the middle of a sentence that you don't need. That means put commas on either side of them. If you could take a phrase in the middle of a sentence out, and the sentence would still make sense, you need the commas. 

Example: Kayback, who lives in South Africa, rides an elephant to work.

If you took out the "who lives in South Africa" you still have "Kayback rides an elephant to work," which is still a sentence. Thus, the clause needs commas. 

4) Lists. If you're not a journalist, you use the serial comma. That means you complete a list with a comma. 

Example: In his lifetime Mack has seen the Pangea split apart, the Titanic sink, and Calvin Coolidge's presidency. 

You have a list of things there, each of which is offset with a comma. 


That's it. There are hundreds of comma rules, but those four right there are the only four you really need to know to get by.

1.) That was awesome.

2.) Never knew about the "lists" thing - every teacher I had growing up basically enforced their preference when it came to the last item of a list.  Some said "never!" and others said "always!".  Glad to know that I was on the right side of the fence most of the time.
