Still plinking with my Windham Weaponry 5.56mm. Either that or the MP5 .22LR. been a few months since I went to the range. Weather been to crappy for that. But spring is here, so it is going to ramp back up.

Weld a blade to the can and you've got a halberd... Very handy for those post EMP cavalry charges...

Chinese steel with paracord handles ain't a proper knife imo....... One thing you should put in your hand at least once is a decent Karambit... It really takes a pocket or belt knife to a next level of utility... it does anything a regular knife can do and it can instantly turn you from a brittle fleshy critter into a velociraptor... if needed....

I'm thinking that the firearm-armed cavalry won't have to worry too much about halberds... ersatz or otherwise.

You should let yourself go once in awhile.

55gr .223 for my plinking. 1/9 twist.

Only I paid 450-500 for mine a few years ago. But that is the exact rifle I use.

Aye, probably trying to get into the ball park of the weapon you used in the service. And for those who forgot ... Windham Weaponry is a sort of spin off of Bushmaster who at least used to make real M4s for the military.

Not a spin off, it was started by the previous owner of Bushmaster with all of the former Bushmaster employee's. IIRC, they produced their first rifles barely a year after Bushmaster was bought and packed up.
