Like really. Every fucking thing they have looks amazing and I haz to have. Fuck I need new drawers but $19.50 for one pair?! Kinda hard not to get tho when there's like over 300 reviews and they get a 5 star rating. Damn.

DAMN.

I usually get my Jeans at TSC. Love the Levi bootcut's they have there. I'll have to check those flex fire hose pants out though. Isn't most, if not all, their products made here?

I'm running a specific muzzle device on this build. The barrel length is being dictated by the length of that muzzle device.

Turns your AR into a fork, never know when you'll need an emergency eating utensil.

This rifle is purely for home defense close quarters stuff and the range. The rifle AFTER this one will be a lot more user friendly Carry that thing into the woods and the first time you trip and fall you'll end up with a horrifying stab wound

I owned one. I've always been a semi-auto guy, and couldn't instinctively get away from semi-auto sight pictures compared to a snubby. Not to mention, quick accurate follow up shots with that gun are next to impossible. Sold it and bought an XDS-45. Way more comfortable to carry, and way more accurate to shoot (at least for me).

I dunno, I can see getting that fork caught on all sorts of things in the home too.

Guess I'll just have to be extra careful not to jam my barrel against shit in the house if I have to use it.

You can mount the AR directly to the drywall.

I think I'll add the Spike's ST 9" 37MM launcher and a 100 round drum too.

I want to start reloading. Way too much on my plate right now. I think this fall/winter I'll undertake that new hobby.

It's a lot to learn and pretty time consuming.

Loading pistol isn't bad to learn. I spent a couple hours making some dummy rounds, and then I was good to go. Rifle is more of a pain in the ass than anything.

I actually got rid of my XDS 45 last week (traded it for all the custom work on that m&p9 I posted a few days ago), it hadn't left the safe since I bought the lcr. I was slightly more accurate with the XDS, but the ease of carrying the revolver won over for me. Follow up shots are slightly slower, but at close range...a few quick center mass shots are easy enough.

Did you ever try a front pocket holster with the lcr? I don't notice that it's on me anymore, feels as natural as a wallet in my pocket. With the XDS, I ended up using the owb holster that came with the pistol...it was better than the IWB setup I tried, but still nowhere near as comfortable as the pocket holster with the lcr. This is the only gun that I can carry that I don't constantly notice that Im carrying, if that makes sense...

I hate pocket carry. Most useless way to carry a gun unless it can be in a jacket with your hand wrapped around the grip. I always carry at about the 4 o'clock position. That's where I've trained to draw from, so I keep that consistent.

The LCR just isn't a platform I can shoot accurately. Granted, more than likely I'd be within an arm's reach of whomever I would need to shoot in a self defense situation, but I'd rather have something I can shoot more accurately at longer distances to cover more scenarios that could occur.

I personally don't understand how a thicker revolver shape can be more comfortable to carry, but to each their own.
