Pics of the new stuff

I had a few minutes this afternoon, so I ventured out into the mosquitoes and shot a few pics of new gear. None of it is really "new", just new to me. There's my custom ATS M4 8 Pack Chest Harness, the new Hatch Operator HK (Hard Knuckle) grobes, my almost-new-but-new-to-me Glock 19, and the Colt receiver extension (not that it matters; if they're Mil Spec they're pretty much the same) and Vltor Clubfoot Modstock. I got all this stuff in trade (except the 8 Pack; that was a birthday gift from the seamstresses at work), so my capital investment is fairly low. The Grock I got in trade for my Grock 30. I think I may pick up another 30 someday, but its more likely that I'll get a G23. More rounds, less size, way, way easier to get mags and holsters for. The Colt RE is in a pending trade, and I swapped an SOTech double M9 mag pouch and a knife for the buttstock. All in all, not too bad.

BTW, the pack is an ATS Cobra One Day Assault Pack. "Cobra" refers to the name of my boss's unit in the 101st when he was in, and isn't an acronym. I made one for it, though: Chips, Oreos and Beer, Readily Available.

I like the second pic from the top! :-) Now I know why I keep skipping past your blog - I wasn't associating "Haji" with WDINABF? in my bookmarks. Fixed that.

I just wish I had more than one carbine! My employer, ATS Tactical Gear, has been granted one of only four Master Dealer slots for LWRC. I'm trying to find out what a moderately used kidney is going for on the open market right now... ;)

I had to build my AR to CA legal specs from bits - so it took a while, but I used really good bits from White Oak.

Moderately used my ass. Your kidneys and liver are in worse shape than mine, and being as close as you are to whiskey central ain't helping. Don't know why it took me so long to find your blog, but now I have, and it frightens the cats.
