This is a diagram of an AR-15. Guns work by using the spring in the magazine to detonate the black powder inside the long tube at the end. The proton pack generates a powerful electromagnetic field that helps propel the bullet down the tube where it then exits and murders someone. Sometimes people murder each other with shotguns, which are similar to the AR-15 but have laser sights and vent holes.Read the whole thing, and prepare to spew milk out your nose. LOL!
Interesting piece from Caleb at Gun Nuts Media on "tiers" of AR quality. Read it here. I don't necessarily agree, which, hey, will give me something else to talk about on Monday's podcast! Actually I have a ton of stuff on the list. I just started working with the DoubleStar C3 (Constant Carry Carbine) on 50-yard drills with the irons (Magpul MBUS). I love this gun! You throw it up to your shoulder and run it.
The short 7-inch Ace stock takes about 5 minutes to get used to...especially if you're used to reach way far out there on a mid-length handguard. At 5.5 pounds, the C3 is like running a big pistol. I didn't do any of the stuff you're supposed to do with a new gun...I didn't take it apart, meticulously measure each part, blah blah. I took it out of the box, sprayed some Ballistol on the bolt and cranked it up with Corbon match 55-grainers (my last 100 of those particularly wonderful rounds). Sights were a little low at 50, but there's an Aimpoint Micro in this baby's future (yes, I have old eyes!). The only other thing I'd add is a sling, maybe Kyle Lamb's lightweight bungee sling.
Is the C3 to do-all and be-all of ARs? Of course not. But I believe the C3 perfectly fills the niche of car/travel rifle (a niche I've been filling with a Rock River Arms LAR-PDS AR-15 pistol). The C3 with its short entry stock perfectly fits in the new Comp-Tac "Trojan Horse" rifle case, which I think is definitely a "product of the year." I only wish it came in fetching colors...maybe puce. Seriously, since I "went viral" and started chalking up illiterate death threats, I've found myself traveling more and more with a rifle (something my friend John Farnam suggested I start doing years ago). The C3/"Trojan Horse" combination (along with the requisite selection of P-Mags — 30 rounds! Run! Hide! Call Governor Hickenloopy!) is a perfect travel companion.
