From the Desk of John Rourke – July 10th, 2017

Mentioned the other day about an AR pistol build I am working on. I ended up ordered the Sig SBX brace although I very much like the Shockwave Blade. Why the Sig? Because. Yeah – that’s it. Just wanted to try something different. Worse case if I hate it I’ll sell it and get the Shockwave.

Looking at an optic for the above mentioned AR pistol had me wanting to do something different than what I have done in the past. My favorite AR pistol optic is the Bushnell TRS-25. Looking for something different I came across a Sightmark Wolverine CSR Red Dot. First-hand reviews are good. It has a 4 MOA dot which is a bit big. We’ll see.

I think Sightmark is similar to Condor. Condor used to be a name that went with “airsoft” quality. Not anymore. Sightmark has been turning up their game.

Was in Wally World and saw they had 9mm brass ammo for $9.97 for 50 rounds. Excellent deal. Had to pick up a couple boxes.

What a weekend. Busy!! Spent Saturday going down the Catawba River. Some in the group kayaked while others went down in floats. Ended up baking in the sun for close to 5 hours. Going down the river is very peaceful and relaxing – though I am worn out afterward.
