    Nothing like being friends with your gun dealer. All but two of the guns I ever bought were from the same pawn shop. Always throws in some expensive ammo in so that I get off without paying tax. Then when the original owner passed the business on, the new people carried on the tradition. Aw, yeah.

    I lived in Phoenix for a short time, so I understand exactly what you are talking about. Once you hit March, Satan flaps his wings and God flips the oven on Pre-heat. Particularly in the valley.

    Not to get too graphic, but I had to switch my 100% Cotton underwear for that new-fangled sweat wicking stuff. Made a huge difference.

    At the time I carried a Glock 27 which was pretty easy to conceal under a t-shirt. It was so easy to conceal, in fact that when I switched to that good old Parabellum round, I decided to go a size up. Instead of trucking 9 rounds, I've got 16 heh heh heh.

    Go to the love-in thread. I've got a question for you more related to that subject matter.

    I have a case of buyer's remorse about my AR-308. As nice as it is or will be, I wish now that I had funneled the money into a bolt-action rifle instead. I can't sell the AR-308 though because the lower receiver is one of the 80% receivers, so it has no serial number and is not registered and cannot legally be sold or transferred.
    Some days, I feel like removing the SIM from my phone, breaking it in pieces, tossing the phone in a wood chipper, grabbing my bug-out bag, leave everyone without saying a word, and just going ghost for the rest of my life.

    That which doesn't kill you gives you a lot of unhealthy coping mechanisms and a dark sense of humor.

    I don't know what state you are in, but there is no federal firearms registration. Most states don't have a firearms registry. The feds and most states don't require you to go through a FFL to transfer a weapon unless you sell across state lines. Where I live, there are no laws stopping us from selling most firearms, including homemade, out the back of your truck.

    I've heard they can have more reliability issues than average. I've avoided them.

    I have yet to do any meaningful research on more powerful guns, but if I have to go above .300 Blackout, I'll probably go with a bolt action .308 or a .338 Lapua if it comes down in price by the time I'm in the market for one (probably 2019 or 2020).

    I thought a hornet was some kind of vehicle, like a motorbike or something...

    Yep.... I have it in a TC Contender carbine... barrel by Bullberry. It's a very compact little rifle... perfect for carrying around, plinking at stuff. Turkeys, coyote (1), jackrabbits, horseapples..... lots of fun to shoot.

    I've had ex military guys ask me if I was a pilot... I think it's an F18? Called a hornet... that would have been cool, but I missed out on the military, thank God. I would have ended up in southeast Asia, but they abolished the draft the year I turned 18..
