Thinking About a 1:9 Twist AR-15
Funding was allocated last year, but the project simply never got off the ground. So this morning, before the kids awoke, I sat down on the side of the bed with the Chair of the Finance Committee and gave my presentation seeking funds from FY2012. My PowerPoint presentation included graphs with "fun" on one axis and "ammo cost" on another, the typical pie chart of cool, and an executive summary of the study from the Institute of Oh Hell Yeah! titled "Effects of Rounds Down Range and Positive Psychological Dispositions: Seriously, this Shit is Fun!" I closed the presentation with a kiss on the cheek and an "I love you." Funds granted!
So I'm open to suggestions. I'm leaning more towards buy than build as any reader of this blog can tell you that lately there hasn't been much reading to do on this blog for reasons previously stated. But my mind isn't made up. I'm also leaning to more rifle length than carbine length and maybe an old-school hand guard. Still, suggestions welcomed.
