Boomsticks: My gun makes Dianne Feinstein cry.

As predicted, visits from friends can sometimes result in pictures of some pretty swoopy hardware.


On the left is a pretty deluxe Bushmaster, complete with Surefire M900A and Aimpoint. On the right is the now-completed Project Housegun. Well, almost completed; I still need an Ergogrip (In Coyote Brown, of course. "Coyote Brown: It's the new black.") I decided to go with the EOTech 512 because... well, I'm lazy and didn't want to wait for an ARMS throw-lever ring to get restocked at the shop. Plus, it has the Donut-Of-Death reticle, which is pretty cool...

And you went with the EOTech because it's, well, better.

What light system did you end up using on Project Housegun?

Brass

No, I went with the EOTech because I'm not going to the Hindu Kush, so absolute ruggedness and battery life are not as important to me as they are to some of the folks I consulted on my purchase...

Nice. Makes me wish I hadn't sold mine... Eh, I'll get another eventually. I've been eying some receivers at the shop. I might put one together.

That's a Surefire M500A, like on my previous Project Housegun. It's a good piece of gear, but I think my next gun will include rail handguards and an M900, as I prefer a vertical foregrip rather than a front-of-magwell hold, and the M500-series makes this impractical.

as I sprayed coffee on my keyboard.

A gun porn quote if I've ever heard one.
