    I like the way you think sir. I did leave off one that Iíd forgotten about just because itís been a minute since I have messed with crazy ass AR ideas. In my past life I was going to try and convince my employer to build a small frame AR-10 type pistol/SBR in .338 Fed with a 12.5Ē barrel just to see what I could make it do ballistically. That and a 2011 in .224 BOZ still pops up in my ďI wonder if . . .Ē every now and then.

    Thinking about it, I think I might have to pull one of the .45s off the wall at work and mess around with a barrel for it.
    @cor_man257 looking at your list, Iím pretty sure we might very well be kindred spirits of the gunternet.

    Unlike most of you, my desires are reasonable

    While not exactly a irrational desire, more of an impulse buy.I stopped in the LGS, a little while ago, and walked out with this, Gen2 G19Name:  00D71655-BDE7-42B3-A1BD-65D23383DA4E.jpg

Size:  58.6 KB for $300 out the door, it came with 2 10 rnd mags,and the Tupperware box, cleaning rod, and brush, and the beauty of it is, I have a bunch of 15 rnd mags, and a IWB holster for it, I figure I can always get my money back out of it if I donít like it. As a added bonus, I took it out back and ran a mag of my loads through it, and it ejects perfectly!! All the cases went vigorously to the right!! This is the first G19 Iíve had out of seven or eight, that ejects like its supposed to.

    That has finger grooves and an accessory rail, so it's a Gen 3. You stole it for $300 though.

    Thatís Ok, like I said itís the first G19, Iíve owned that ejects like itís supposed to...to the right.. That is a big plus in my book, erratic ejection pretty much drove me away from Glocks. Iíll probably hang on to it, for the money I canít see how I could go wrong. I figure I could sell it for $350-$375 anytime, and have no problem getting rid of it. All I need to do is change the sights, it still has the standard Glock slot fillers, and they need to go, luckily, I have some 15 rnd mags, and a IWB holster for it.. Iím pretty set if I decide to carry it.

    The only good thing about a nebulous impending ban is having a neverending excuse to buy more guns and mags.
