i just bought a fully kitted volquartsen scorpion, conceal carry it everywhere i go with a special holster

it's basically completely silent, fantastic holo optic, blinding flasher streamlight, multiple magazine reloads in the holster belt, is easy to take apart and clean

i have to carry a ccw and tax stamp with me to conceal carry it, but it's worth it

the .22 ammo makes it a great pistol to stop someone in their tracks without being unnecessarily fatal


best part about the streamlight is that it will blind you even during daylight

easily my favorite pistol right now

Just picked up a Taurus G2S for my new carry pistol. Yah, I know, the C has 12 rounds compared to my 7. But the local shop had 75 off it for some reason, and I couldn't resist that price.

Plus I'm tired of carrying my 45, damn thing is a damned brick in comparison. Plus to be honest, a 45 is overkill unless I plan on needing to take down a linebacker in full sprint.

What’s the total price of the pistol, optic, light and silencer?

Also, what’s the holster you use with the suppressor?

I got the accessories for a neat thing I just bought. A neat thing that I won't be able to take home for a while...

I may go buy a new firearm today. Trying to decide if I should build an AR myself, or go pre-built and modify from there. Suggestions?

Depends on how much money you want to spend and how much your time is worth. Personally I would go with a nice prebuilt. $1000-$1500 should net you a very decent gun. Accessories end up costing many people more than the gun itself. Focus on a nice scope and fore mount.

You could also buy a "bare bones" AR... If you want further customization without having to build the base yourself.

You don't need to spend that much for a nice pre-built AR, I grabbed a Smith and Wesson M&P Sport II for around $600, I think they can still be had around that price point.

As far as AR rifles go, I am not sure whether there is that much of a difference between a cheap $600 AR and a $2500 AR - unless they guarantee sub MOA accuracy out of the box like this guy.


I've shot $2000 ARs with very very unimpressive accuracy

The Cool Thing I bought finally made it to my dealer. It's an RPB M11A1. Colloquially referred to as a MAC-11. It's a full auto .380 with a ridiculous rate of fire. Thankfully, there are aftermarket slowfire uppers and such that make it a lot more shootable.

randomly shooting my rifle outside at various targets, the ping of a bullet against metal never gets old

the smell of gas out of the chamber in the morning

I used to own firearms but they were all lost in a tragic boating accident. They're all at the bottom of the sea now.

here's my 16" aero with my buddy's 3x magnifier in front of my DI Optical red dot (which is bulletproof).

I've since bought a sig 6x that I quite enjoy. I run it on my 7.5 with a CMMG .22 kit and binary trigger and snipe the shit out of jackrabbits with it.
