Oh, the Boss was mulling over building one, and as I recall there were some issues with your initial build.

No big deal, but I immediately thought, Hey! I know a guy that did that.

I did it on the cheap just to see if it worked. I have about $20 into it.

The main issues have been dry lawns. I set fire to the back yard twice last year.

I cooks very well.

I finished my blackout upper this weekend. I haven't decided which sights I'll use yet. I did make sure to included a Tactical Bottle Opener.

I’ll copy and paste what I sent him last. When we talked before, I was asking if there are any other of his books in audiobook format. I was surprised that he replied so quickly.

Here’s what I recently sent:

Mr Lott,
I finished both of your audiobooks, and they were outstanding.
I’m working of trying to find the data on firearms-related crimes here in Colorado from July 1 2013 (When they passed three new gun control laws) through the new year. I want to compare those statistics to previous years to find out if the crime rate went up, down or flatlined. I think it would be a good tool to throw in people’s faces when I’m picking a fight with the gun banners online -a hobby of mine. I’ve checked the Colorado Bureau of Investigation, but could only find data up to 2012, but it might be early at this point.
Do you have any advice or recommendations on how to take on a personal project like this?
Anyhoo, I hope you had a great weekend.
And I look forward to hearing and reading more of your work

That’s amazing, but I can see either a Tax Stamp or outright ban on a TBO, along with the bayonnet lug, coming.

Heh.

Did you make that, or was it off-the-shelf, maybe from Cabela’s, Brownell’s or somewhere?

The TBO is made by ACE Tactical. You can find it at Brownells, Midway, etc. About $15. It’s really a front sling mount, with an extra feature built in.

Have been thinking about a Blackout for my next Lower Of The Month Club purchase. Let us know how yours works out.

(Would rather have a 7.62x39 but upper components seem to be almost non-existent so 300 Blackout in the next obvious choice.)

Years ago I had a distant cousin who was Chief of Police in a small town in southeast Missouri. His carry piece was a .380, IIRC it was a Browning but that was long, long time ago.

The more things change the more they stay the same

.380 is about the only caliber I do not own.

I wanted a Romanian Carpati and a Zastava M70 in .380

All I was able to come up with was a Zastava M70 in 32 ACP.

Pretty useless but cool.

I’m going next year, darnit. Things should be settled down here enough that I can get away for a week. Hells bells, I’m retired, what am I worried about? LOL. Have to get 1-2 co-drivers/ FRiends from this area to go along.

I had a Browning .380 Cadet many moons ago. Sold it, too heavy and too big.

Back then .380 ammo was crap, now, so says Tim, it’s very competitive with 9mm.

I’ve been wanting the new Kimber .380 1911 but can’t find one.

Hiya Mr. 6,

I used a cutoff disc on an angle grinder to cut the doors and get rid of the flue up the center.
