    The newest additions to my family. :wiggle:

    The rifle at the bottom is the Valmet M76W. Came with a factory 30rd, a factory 15rd, and three Tromix 30rd mags, box and papers. If its been shot at all, it's probably only got about 20 rounds through it. :bigok:

    The AR's aren't new, but their slings are. The 20" is wearing a CQB solutions SOP sling and the 14.5" is wearing an IDF Sayeret sling. They're both great quality, but for a general purpose battle sling, the IDF is definitely less complicated with much of the same capability. The fact that it's only like $15 doesn't hurt either. :x:

    Below the Valmet is the S&W Model 66 i picked up for a GREAT price. The interesting thing about this is that it was an issue sidearm for the best state police agency in the world, Connecticut State Police. :big grin: They wanted the durability of stainless steel, but refused to have a "silver" gun, so they insisted S&W apply bluing over the stainless steel, thus creating a finish known as Black Magic. It's not very durable to friction wear however, since stainless isn't porous enough to hold the bluing, so it's VERY rare to find one in such great shape.

    that's not a binge. my buddy has a few hundred thousand rounds of 5.56 alone (and probably near that in all the other calibers combined) and almost enough mags to hold it all.

    but i'm several grand away from owning nearly that many. i'd like to build up a good couple hundred or so. i need at least another 11 to have a full combat load with me.

    Very nice. I had a recent addition as well ... an EOtech 552.

    yeah, the arms 40 is good stuff. my friend has that and the sir on one of his uppers, along with an AAC forward grip, a surefire M3 combatlight (it's really got a different name, but it's the weapons-light version of the M3), and an AAC quick attatch-threaded flash suppressor for his can. he needs some optics soon. but back on topic, the arms 40 is awesome, indoors and out. it's weird getting used to the smaller peephole, because the top part of it, being so thin, disappears, so the hole really just looks like a semicircle.

    Well you need to head over to the equipment exchance on AR15.com and do something about that! :) Seriously though, you can find some very good deals on there, even on non-AR stuff.

    yeah, i'd say that 552 mags would be a binge. how much is that costing you?

    An EOTech 552 sight, not 552 mags.

    552 mags would probably cost nearly $10,000 :eek:
