    No matter how many times I try different stocks, I always go back to the SOPMOD. When I replace my stolen 10.5", I'll likely use the CTR or that extra small M4 stock that is kind of hard to find... I forget what it's called, but the one I handled felt good for a short rifle. Other than that, I'll stick with the SOPMOD, and likely even on that one I'll run the SOPMOD again at some point.
    Proven combat techniques may not be flashy and may require a bit more physical effort on the part of the shooter. Further, they may not win competition matches, but they will help ensure your survival in a shooting or gunfight on the street. ~Paul Howe

    I live down by Cincy. CCFSA is $60 a year IIRC, well worth it. I'm an RSO there too. It really isn't any further from Campus than Delaware was, just a different direction (about 50-60 minutes).

    I saw in another thread where Jon said you are a good guy, so if he will vouch for you, and you want to try the club out sometime, lemme know, I'll take you as a guest, but I wanna shoot that SBR.

    They also run 3 gun, IDPA, shotgun sports, SASS and high-power matches, and you don't need to be a member to attend any of those.

    I'll certainly vouch for Matt.

    Good to hear, can't wait to get it. Thanks to that TX trip/shooting your 14.5...a TD stubby is on the way as well.

    Gotcha. I'm north side (Lewis Center) but have no problem driving. Would love to check the place out man, appreciate the invite. My wife and I are expecting our first in Nov/Dec so things are hectic but I'll try to carve out a little time to get down there.

    Painting Rifles - How To

    Monotony is the awful reward for the careful

    How can man die better than facing fearful odds, for the ashes of his fathers and the temples of his Gods?

    Matt, don't come here posting your "look-at-me-I-figured-this-out-in-no time-and-my-rifle-looks-better-than-your's" pics thinking everything is just fine and dandy. That is sinful behavior... Sinful!

    I ran across this photo after reading this thread. It is a great example of the points made regarding the "Why". Also notice the boots, hands and the face, although the black rifle shows the worst.

    Oddly enough when I first saw your pic, I was wondering why the hell you cut out the side of your rail (thought the flashlight was the barrel).

    I've got a case of paint staring at me waiting for decent weather or the wife to get her jeep out of the garage so I can get my 2 painted.

    It does look that way doesn't it? I've held off on painting it, thinking I'll throw the 600 on the sopmod build when I do that, and will be getting the smaller 300 for the SBR. And I'm just gutless right now and can't bring myself to paint the 3x

    Yeah, why didn't you paint the light or optics?
