No $#!+, there I was...
I'm sitting there in gunsmithing yesterday, eating a slice of pizza, when in strolls one of those people who have graduated from customer to professional hanger-on. Every gun store has them; they're not employees, so you can't just tell them to leave, and there's always the chance they might start spending money and become a customer again*, so...
Anyway, I'm given to understand that this particular dude introduced himself as "The best AR builder."
"'The best AR builder in...'?" I asked.
"No qualifiers; just 'The best AR builder.'"
"That's a pretty bold claim."
Anyway, this guy was dragging a .308 AR of some sort and asking what kind of modifications he needed so it would shoot with his buddies at a thousand yards. "You know," he says "Groups like this," gesturing with his hands. "It's all in the setup on the gun."
I looked up. "Wait... Groups like how?"
"Like this," he says, making a ~4"-5" circle with his hands.
"Dude, that's like, less than half MOA. At a thousand yards..."
"Your buddies should get together and put David Tubb out of business!" pipes up Gunsmith Bob.
"Who's David Tubb?"
Gotta love this stuff. Or you'll pull your hair out.
*Heck, I technically fall into that category myself, these days...
