  1. This was the first post, so yes 9/11 is off topic. Now before you go jumping all over me, I never said you could not express you opinions, but the reality is that the death of Saddam is taking a back seat to many of the later posts. What about another thread titled Saddam's sentence, is the timing a coincidence? I liked the direction that the thread was heading in regard to whether the death penalty was justified in Saddam's case, etc... (a very interesting path the thread was heading in) Now that is moreso on topic. However, I will step aside as the original topic starter is Ledanek, and if he does not have a problem with the direction it is heading then, so be it. The fact is that many US servicemen were tortured etc... during captivity in the first Gulf War. I don't know about so and so's mother's son's, brother's cousin, but who cares right? We already know of US servicemen that WERE tortured. I agree that there are too many "side stories" that crop up in times like this, but why talk about them when there are many leginitmate cases we already know about right? I'm not attacking you, I'm just saying forget about the tall tale tellers, as we don't really need their stories. We have legitimate incidents that should have our attention.
  2. @Ruin Your welcome, and keep us updated on your project there. I would like to hear about the VIS when you get it. Even though I am a real hardcore fan of ARMS SIR systems, I still wouldn't mind trying out something new that is of good quality. The barrel from Noveske is a 16.1 in, and I passed on the KX3 as I am considering a quick detach suppressor for this gun. Probably a Reflex or Surefire. This one will be a semiauto only, as the 6.8mm ammo is still to expensive IMO to shoot in full auto. The 1X-3X red dot I mentioned is the CQT. I don't own one, but I know someone that has one, and I have to say that it is the nicest red dot that I have ever used. I liked it even better than the Aimpoint I had, and even better than my friend's EoTech. I am seriously considering getting one for my 11.5in Commando. I am also working on a 14.5 in M4 with a Knight Carrier Key. With the 10" Remy shotgun on the end, I won't need to go full auto with that one.
  3. Surprise, surprise, look who immediately took this thread OT. Just couldn't help yourself could you. I believe this is what got everyone started on the timing of the verdict, etc... No suprise if you ask me.
  4. Having owned more than one ACOG, I personally would steer a prospective buyer away from these optics. They have LESS than two inches of eye relief, and they do not offer magnification adustments. They also do not offer reticle lighting adjustments, so if you are shooting at night, and a light shines into the optic, the reticle simply washes out. I would strongly recommend a Nightforce optic, IOR Valdada, or a Schmit Bender variable scope. All these scopes offer more than three inches of eye relief, and some as much as four. The only downside is that some of the Schmit Benders only have "hunting" reticles, but I believe they are making more of their scopes available with mil dot rets. Nightforce, and IOR pretty much offer a broad range of reticles with their scopes. I have sold all my ACOGs at this point and I don't miss them one bit. Don't take this the wrong way, ACOGs are nice optics, but IMO, too many people rate these optic far too high. As far as quadrail grips go, I personally would go with the ARMS SIR system. However, Vltor's VIS does seem pretty nice, but I have not actually owned one of these, so I can't really say for certian how good it is, but hey, it is Vltor right? I'm in the middle of a 6.8mm SPC project, and I might use my ARMS for my commando and order a VIS for the current project. I'm not in any rush, so I'll take my time and see in a few weeks. The barrel is a Noveske, and it is on back order, so I have time to decide on what kind of upper and grips I will use. Anyway, just some recommendations I'm making. Of course there are alot of good choices out there that you can make. Good luck! Edit: BTW, Leupold makes a 1-3X red dot sight. It is pretty nice, and the red dot is just like that of an Eotech.
  5. I guess from now on EVERY thread will become a 9/11 thread. I thought this was about the verdict on Saddam.
  6. Nice pics Ruin. Whisper offers some good suggestions. Maybe an ARMS SIR system would work? I'd ditch the ACOG, poor eye relief and no variability in magnification. I'd go with an IOR, or Nightforce optic.
  7. Nice. Your project sounds like it is coming together. Post some pics.
  8. @Dai-San & Minerva Your recommendations are well put. Well, we didn't either. Are you sure about that? What about the servicemen that suffered torture and just poor general treatment while in captivity during the first Gulf War? How quickly we forget.
  9. Congrads, and hope to hear back from you soon.
  10. I couldn't agree more. Not to mention the fact that the UN did nothing to take him out in the first place, so what right do that have to determine his fate at this point. England has some say, but other than them, nobody else has any right to cast any sort of judgement in regard to this matter.
  11. Nice sound, but too loud? No such thing. Without question, my vette was louder than that, and even my old Stang was louder. Yeah, I once had a "Rustang", but with the blower and all the suspension mods, it was one heck of a fast car, and yes even faster than a stock vette with just an exhaust. Regardless, my vette with only machine work done to the heads, 11:1 compression pistons, exhaust, headers, complete intake, aluminum rods, and 3.73 rears would eat my "Rustang" for lunch. I wanted to do a 383 motor on it, but never got around to stroking it out to the 6.3 liter displacement. Any more mods in the works for the future? If you go hog wild on that thing, post some pics.
  12. I realise that Kerry might not have necessarily meant to insult our military, but considering his past and the fact that initially he refused to even apologise for how it came across, I think this was a well deserved joke from our service personnel overseas.
  13. Good Luck, and hope to hear back soon about your experiences with the Guard.
  14. The standard MP5 runs about 750-850RPM depending on the ammo you use. The K varient will run about 50-75RPM higher.
  15. I'm definitely watching this one VERY closely. It certainly would add quite a bit of life to a lot of the old games.
  16. Yeah, I have run quite a few rounds through Gemtechs, and I have always liked them. I was just hoping to find something new on the market. At the prices that YHM is offering their suppressors for, I'm sure that I will probably run into someone soon that has one. I have only used a Knight suppressor once, and it was on a USP (never used one on an M4). Also, I did not get a chance to shoot it on its own as there was quite a bit of gunfire all around me, so I could not get a real accurate sense of how well the suppressor was muffling the sound. What was it about he Knight that you did not like?
  17. Just commenting on the content, not your motivations for posting it. Sorry if it came across that way, because it certianly was not meant to. BTW, yes, any good video posted here will be enjoyed by many of us. Thanks for posting it.
  18. I have already sent BIS an email. I'm really hoping this one makes it to the market.
  19. You know, what I would really like is a Reflex Suppressor. I might ultimately just go with them. They are not that cheap, but neither are they too expensive. Also, I have seen them withstand repeated belts through an M60. Nothing seems to phase these things. I was just hoping YHM would be a new promising player in the market. Sent you a PM.
  20. A Surefire suppressor will not fit on my 11.5" Commando barrel. I have used a number of YHM products, but I have never used one of their suppressors, and the low price is making me a bit wary. I have not met anyone yet that has a YHM suppressor, so I was just curious to see if there was anyone here.
  21. I have been keeping my eye on these, and I have to say that the 35db reduction claim is quite impressive. Running wet, it is supposedly 40db. I was just curious if anyone here has run one of these, because the prices are a bit low, so it makes me a bit skeptical, as you know most of the time you get what you pay for. YHM suppressors
  22. LOL, Sony really can't afford to loose any more sales, and considering many of their own employees bought through this site, this may come back to haunt them. Not that I care.
  23. Yeah, I hear you on that one, but I really enjoyed running OFP on the old Xbox, so I was just hoping to see ArmA on the 360. I just really like having a big screen in front of me. The easy chair is also a nice addition to the gaming experience.
  24. My favorite game on console is OFP, and so I'm just wondering if anyone has heard any news on the 360 wires that indicate whether Armed Assault might make it onto the 360.
