    Feel free to elaborate with your reason. Mine is now simple. Cause when ya ground your gear from checkin the perimeter it fits on the cutting board while your makin a samich !!! Thats my Why, your turn...

    An AR pistol carbine is on my 2019 to do list! The why is I don`t hunt so I don`t have a need for a long range rifle but an AR pistol would be a nice addition for HD.

    I have an assortment of "extras" that will be installed on an 80% with 7.5" barrel in the near future. This is to become a trunk gun meaning it will live there. I've already envisioned a suitable, accessible "hide" for it.

    OK. Now you done went and done it. You asked for reasons.

    You know you're not supposed to seek out logic on the internet.

    That's like asking someone how to fry ice sickles. (thankfully, I have my Mom's old recipe) so I'll get back to this topic after my supper time sammich.

    Best reason I can think of is
    "Merica"

    I like this one for the 220+ grain pew. One heckuva way to introduce yourself to unwelcome guests.

    And here's a couple other little things that I keep hanging around.

    The last of my short stuff is the newest acquisition. It's the only upper that I didn't build myself. It's one of the few actual 14.5" Colt Socom uppers that has ever leaked out to the civilian market from a colt authorized dealer. I could tell you which unit turned these in at the end of their last deployment, but I gave him my word that I wouldn't. I think most here would recognize it though. They were turned in for newer uppers once they got back to the states last go round since they had been downrange a while. I can't recall ever seeing a colt socom upper that wasn't 16" with a pinned flash hider.

    Why not is the question, we are living in beautiful times - I have a 7" build completed now with KAK Blade, doing a 10.5" build with SBA3 brace next -

    Because I can, because I want to, and because it's my right to have one. That covers the why, now let's talk logic.

    well you dont have to worry about changing socks.......your gear would kill my feet . I got a bad case of jungle foot in AK , since then I cant mess around with no socks anymore ......in fact I have to use smart wool when I have my feet cooped up in fire boots all summer. I pulled a camp job this year in a Planning Ops position, wore my boots but with cotton socks....16 hour days not in the wood and still EFFed up my feet some
