Anyone Looking For A Cheap AR?

CMMG can hook you up with a 16″ M4 profile flat top with telestock for a mere $550 plus shipping and transfer. You’ll need to add a rear sight, and the barrel isn’t chrome lined, but I don’t think you could put together a kit gun for less. I would normally be suspicious of such […]

In Ur Datacenter, Fixin’ Ur Tubes

Yes, friends, I am gainfully employed! It has been almost three years since I last toiled for the man, fixing his infernal magic elf boxes… but despite atrophied technical skills and a surly personal comportment, I was apparently the best man for the job!

Barriers To Entry

So I’ve got an interview with a prospective employer early next week. The position sounds perfect, in a field where I’d like to get my foot in the door. The pay is a little low, but in this climate I’ll take it. However. The recruiter strongly suggested I wear a suit to the interview! Yes, […]

In Case You Were Wondering…

I recently picked up a Magpul PMAG-30 for my AR-15 at a gunshow for $15. I haven’t had a chance to shoot with it yet, but if it works out, I will be replacing my stock of USGI 30s with them. “But pdb!” I hear you saying, “That’s great and all, but what about the […]

Audiophiles Are Idiots, Part II
