    4 days a week I have to use water transportation to get to work. I use my iPad but coverage for that and cell phones is spotty during the run. I decided to start reading more instead and picked up three modern combat books. As a historian I always like to read things chronologically if given a choice. So, for guys and gals who have read all 3 of these books: AMERICAN SNIPER, ROBERTS RIDGE, AND LONE SURVIVOR... Which should I read first?

    I think all the tacticool kids start with a ballistic plate in their backpack. Then you don't have to worry about reading Archie and Veronica comic books.

    I own an iPad mini, why would I want a Kindle, hee hee. i am still doing the build. I took me over an hour of filing and fussing to get my MOE hand guard on last night. So my next evolution is installing the pivot pin. Not looking forward to that since in no work bench in my apartment, no vise, no mag well block....I hate to spend the money for more tools cause I got a ton of car/motorcycle tools but it looks very tough to install the pivot pin without the lower in a vise. Days like these I really miss my 4 car garage...but I don''t miss my ex...so its a bit of a wash. I am thinking once the pivot pin is in the rest of the build should be straight forward. Got a BCM charging handle to go with my BCM middie upper so other than the special tools I got all need I think. and now iron sights.

    Read Lone Survivor first as there are a reference or two to it in American Sniper. Read that next.

    Not on your list there, but I really enjoyed Unintended Consequences.
