Oh, hey

Things are slowly getting back to something resembling normal. The kids are holding up much better than I am. Fortunately, we have support from family and friends that helped get us through the initial shock and the weeks since. It’s been rough.

The thing I focus on now is simplifying life, the house, and, well, as much as I can. It keeps me focused and provides a needed distraction. Organizing the basement, office and garage has taken up a lot of my time. As has consolidating and closing accounts and so on.

While I wouldn’t consider us to have been under quarantine necessarily, I did pretty much eliminate any unnecessary travel for us. As the world is returning to normal (at least where I live), I may have to re-evaluate. Hope all of you are coping with the current situation well.

Oh, and this is a gun blog. To keep myself further occupied, I started a new project:

That’s a Ruger PC Charger in 9mm. It takes Glock magazines. Pros: Sturdy construction; I like the ergonomics; It runs pretty much just like my 10/22.

Cons: No rail or slots on the top of the barrel, which means any BUIS would be short.

I put on a Sig Folding Knuckle to accept an SB pistol brace. The screws that came with the knuckle were junk. The heads came right off while tightening. A trip to Home Depot fixed that. I like the brace quite a lot.

Magpul sling because I have Magpul slings on all of my rifles.

The optic is a Vortex SPARC, at the recommendation of another blogger sort. Seems to be a decent sight but it has the same flaw EOTechs have: it shuts off automatically. Not a fan of that one feature. Would rather it stayed on until I turned it off.

The muzzle device is Southern Precision Tooling’s Hu Du because I have those on all of my rifles. And they are awesome.

Anyway, it’s bore sighted and hope to get it to the range soon.

    I like the sig romeo 5 and its Holosun breathren because while turn off automatically, the only do so from lack of movement. Moving the rifle turns it back on.

    You are making more progress on projects than I am.

    Nifty project!

    Love the Glock mag compatibility.

    Agree with Makroadkill on the Romeo and Holosun, they’re both good optics. I like the Holosun.

    I love that MS4 sling, too.

    Good to see you on-line!

    I like the concept and the fact it takes Glock magazines, haven’t decided if I want it as a pistol or would prefer a carbine. Either one would be a great way to convert 9mm ammo to empty brass.

    My project after the loss of my first wife was to become a distinguished rifleman. I had a few leg points when she passed but I kinda took on getting that medal as it forced me to concentrate on something besides my loss. Took me another year but I think to this day that focusing on that kept me from disappearing into a bottle.
    I like the PCC concept, I could see my current lovely bride using it to better effect than her bedside M&P 9mm.
    Good luck and God bless going forward.

    And, congratulations on legging out, Mike. If it was easy, everybody would do it.

    Light colored background and bright light make for much better pictures. It’s hard to see details on this one, but looks like a fun build.

    Ok. Now I want one.
