Pfftttttt. There are some who were weaned on M16's that can honestly do it blindfolded.Except Hi Point doesn't require you to assemble pieces and bits in the proper order before shooting.. whereas AR15 kits (looking at Sarco, and Delta Team tactical) do... thats what I was referring to. You could take apart a Hi Point and assemble it but its pretty stupid simple and even simpler to mess up... whereas with an AR15 kit... you gotta make sure you're putting things in the right place and right orientation and don't lose that damn detent spring (or 3)!
Cool story, bro !I don’t know why I get so annoyed with how, especially the “tactically minded” young guys, describe things. You know, the guy with a neck beard, tattoos that are often contradictory, low profile hat down over his eyebrows, Oakleys, grey or black polo shirt (vertx, underarmour, proper, 5.11, etc.), 5.11 pants (OD, flat dark poop, or “coyote”), at least 2 mystery items clipped to pockets, and lime green trail running shoes trimmed in royal blue (honorable mention: desert combat boots). They always stand in the “interview stance” and love to “what-if” the crap out of everything. Here’s some things they say that bug me and my alternatives:
1: They say: SEND IT!
I say: shoot...in a really boring and mundane way.
2: They say: Primary, Secondary, Tertiary!
I say: first, second, if that schit don’t work...
3: They say: Pre-zent your firearm
I say: Point your gun at him.
4: They say: Your workspace!
I say: Anything other than workspace. I bet whoever coined that is SO TACTICAL!
5: They say: Scan and reholster!
I say: Who farted? That’s what scan and reholster looks like.
6: They say: Low Powered Variable Optic!
I say: scope. And when people look confused, I remind them it’s a word, not an abbreviation or acronym like LPVO.
7: They say: Platform!
I say: gun
8: They say: My Kit!
I say: My schit
9: They say: chassis
I say: Ugliest damn stock I’ve ever seen.
10: They provide: Unearned 1000-yard stare and cryptic advice about stuff they haven’t done, (but you have)....
I say: What a d-bag....
This is just about every firearms instructor (and suck-ups looking to be firearms instructors) I have to suffer through every month at work. Before anyone says “ok, boomer”, I’m not even 40. That makes me a millennial! But after 17 years at the job...I’ve had it. I don’t even like going to the range anymore. I go because I have to, and the free ammo. That, and these guys are pretty easy to beat in whatever gun game they choose.
PS: I’ve never seen a coyote that was the color “coyote”. Who makes this crap up?

I have more than one "lost spring kit" or whatever they call them. It's all of the AR springs/pins/detents that are often lost or bent, including duplicates of the most commonly launched, like the takedown and pivot pin detent springs.I have lost a few detent springs over the years. I had to buy an extra set of detents since I ran out of them. I have carpet in my guest room and they flew away. I heard them hit across the room but could not find them. I found them years later and keep them as spares now. I also bought a pivot pin tool.
About 20 yrs ago I made the autonomous decree that l would allow NO particleboard furniture into my house and that l was going to take every piece l could find, every bookcase, nightstand, end table, whatever, and put it in a dumpster.My family moved 10 months ago and my wife wondered why I wasn’t bringing some of our “furniture”. I threw all the Ikea crap in dumpster. If we can afford to spend $400k building a house, we can afford real furniture THAT I DONT HAVE TO PUT TOGETHER!
lf l found all the springs, detents, etc that I've launched all over the house, l could start a new build (assembly, whatever). I've been inspired by less.all of the AR springs/pins/detents that are often lost or bent, including duplicates of the most commonly launched, like the takedown and pivot pin detent springs.
Bring your platform into your workspace, 360 scan for threats, if there are no primary secondary or tertiary threats, re-holster your weapon.Is there a term for the almost laughable 'move' where when the person pulls the gun up chest high, barrel up, and 'robotically' looks both ways?
Whatever the term is it annoys me!
