I just got the parts to finish a few builds. After selling my 458 SOCOM, I got to missing out and started picking up parts to build another. Found an Aero 458 SOCOM upper (marked as such and has the enlarged port). To that, I added a Satern barrel I found on sale on Gunbroker. Picked up a Toolcraft BCG for $90 recently, along with a Spikes tungsten heavy buffer and JB enhanced power, polished spring to try and tame the recoil, and did what I feel is the unthinkable and spent $90 on a muzzle device. I generally refuse to spend more than $50, but there aren't many choices for 458 SOCOM devices…that, and out was a brake with a Ferfranz-type shield around it to direct the blast forward. Finished with a UTG Pro 15" keymod handguard and Vortex Diamondback HD 2-8x32mm scope I had laying around. I need to time the brake and go sight it in…someday, hopefully soon. I had a stripped Aero lower with parts kit and RRA National Match trigger, and ordered an ATP stock with a large honeycomb recoil pad and matching handguard. Everything was found on sale, a piece at a time, using parts I specifically wanted (or, in the case of the trigger, had lying around). Always a nice sense of accomplishment building a gun from the ground up. Only thing I didn't assemble was the forward assist since it came with the upper. I feel like I know ARs backwards and forwards at this point. Bless Eugene Stoner and his amazing contraption!

Also bought a Millett TRS-1 scope in ATAC along with an Aero lightweight FDE scope mount to put atop the 6mm Mongoose build I did in FDE. I can FINALLY call that one finished!

Working next on a 6.8 SPC build around an FDE Aero "Spirit of 76" upper/lower and keymod handguard set sitting in my parts box. A friend volunteered to have the engraving color filled for me. I have a YHM 16" midlength diamond fluted, phosphate coated, chrome-lined barrel that's on its way from Primary Arms, which has them on sale for $99. Seems like a great round--300 yard deer rifle in a 16" barrel grin We'll see how long it'll take to finish...

Clearly, I've been away a while grin

Any how. You'll have fun with that set up. Hoyt makes a GREAT compound bow! Congrats on the new addition!


Wowza, didn't know crossbows had that much zing! I'm amazed by the power difference with the compound as it is.

Ordered some 15 watt solar chargers. Planning to give a couple to my sisters as holiday gifts. Both my sisters are gadget people who will likely use them and find them handy. I will be using mine with a couple solar battery packs I recently picked up. I'm hoping this leads to some bigger solar power projects.

Well my beloved wife gave me the go ahead some time back to get a 12ga shot gun when she realized we did not have a 12ga. she said everyone needs a 12ga. After looking around a while I had resigned myself to the fact that I probably wouldn't find what I was looking for and that was OK as I have TWO of them already, the SA and PA in 20ga. THEN I was contacted by a GREAT DAWG saying he had a "Spare". A 5 rounds fired Benelli M2 for several hundred dollars off the normally going price. BUT I just couldn't make myself spend that much money, so I had to turn the Dog Down. Broke my heart as I have had many dealings with him and have ALWAYS I have felt, gotten more than my money's worth.

So Wednesday the 22 we were doing some last minute grocery shopping and Patty said why don't we stop by a couple gun shops and I could just look around as I haven't done that for a while. OK, first place Benelli M4, M3, and M2 STARTING at 1400. After regaining consciousness I said thank you and we left. THEN Patty said lets go to that shop you really like. OK, off we go across town. I go inside and saw some Benellis and other assorted shot guns, but just not quite what I was looking for. I asked the guy what kind of "Tactical" shotguns they had. He started naming off Remington, Mossberg, Stoger Benelli and Weatherby. I said WEATHERBY, and he said yes an SA-459 TR shotgun. I said Lemme see it! woo

Well I walked out $400.00 poorer but with a nice LNIB, doesn't even have any finish off it inside the receiver, Shotgun. Now mind you it is just like my other two, the 20ga PA and SA 459 TR shotguns that I love. They shoulder for me perfectly and the sight is just automatically centered in the rear peep sight. SO FAR I couldn't be happier. OK, here is a stock photo of her. clap


And here are her measurements.
Key Specifications

•Gauge: 12
•Action: Semi-automatic
•Round capacity: 5 + 1
•Barrel length: 18.5"
•Stock: Synthetic pistol grip
•Length of pull: 13.5"
•Chamber: 3"
•Receiver material: Aluminum
•Sights: Fiber optic front blade with LPA-style rear ghost ring
•Overall length: 39"
•Overall weight: 6.5 lbs. grin

Now all I need is a +2 mag extension, a tactical sling, side saddle ammo carrier (maybe the Esstac Shotgun Card) and ammo, lots and lots of ammo, gotta keep the Zombies at bay! (sorry Gary, I said the Z word). eyes

Congratulations. It's good to have several shotguns that are the same. It makes for easy training.

I can't believe I found one, especially for that price. Now to check on ammo and other items. It's nice to have something to Accessorize! grin

Pink heels don't go with everything you know. wink

Congrats on the shotgun. I figured you could find something you liked for under $1000.

I'm told leopard print heels DO go with everything. Every gal should have at least one pair.
