      Roll for initiative! 


      Had fun messing with the filters in Prisma. 


      Here's my go to carbine in an interim configuration. Not sure if I want to go back to gas tube rail or an Atrero mount.

      Here's the suchka with the now repaired optic. Let's see if I can toast it again.

      Still don't have the optic, but the suchka is field ready. I'm happy with how it turned out.

      Handguard polyurethane coating is nice and dry. I lined the interior bottom with an aluminum heat shield. Muzzle device came in today, so I was able to slap the whole front end package together.

      If all goes according to schedule, I should finish by this Thursday.

      Stripped her down to work on the handguards. Good angle of the Ultimak's throating, nice and shiny.


      20160904_125336-01_zpsmpungxmz.jpeg

      Handguard was stained initially with ebony, which brought out the grain. Red oak 3 more times. It's not as dark as I want it, but it'll do. It's temporary until I can figure out what direction I want to go with the lower handguards. I shaved down a heat shield from another handguard and plan on putting that on as well.


      20160904_204549-02_zpsf1kkja6u.jpeg

      Handguard is currently drying its second coat of polyurathane finish. I think it's gotten a smidge darker, but it's hard to tell from the garage light.


      I'll give it a couple of days to dry and cure before I mount everything. Labor day sales everywhere, so I managed to snag a Shockwave Blade, KAK buffer tube, muzzle brake, and brake detent + spring for a very good price. Other than an optic, this suchka should be done sometime this week.

      Got me a new toy: Yugo M92 pistol.


      20160830_112457_zpsp9l6bxys.jpg

      Had a spare Ultimak M1-B rail, so I dremeled, filed, and throated it to properly fit the shorter piston.


      M1-B next to the m92 original gas tube:

      20160830_113426_zpspknhzail.jpg

      Dremeled, filed, and throated.

      20160830_122142_zpstcokfncs.jpg
      20160830_122202_zpsqgmgpki4.jpg

      Had a few other spare parts: Hogue AK grip and an SB15 brace. I bought an AK hinge from Stormwerks, and because I'm apprehensive about drilling and tapping a new firearm, I bought a grip adapter and mounted the folder to that. Adapter is a whopping 7 or 8 oz, it's significant.


      Here's everything mounted.

      20160830_130519_zps7iiblmgt.jpg

      7.5 lbs unloaded and no magazine. Hefty for what it is. I eventually want to replace the SB15 for the lighter Shockwave blade, which should drop it down to just under 7. If I ever get brave enough, mounting the hinge directly to the rear should get me closer to the 6.5 lb range.

      So, been doing pretty well.


      405# squat (at 150# body weight), which was my goal to hit BY DECEMBER.

      13528932_10154941187249992_5646533708138


      410# deadlift, my goal was 405# by December as well.

      13416994_10154918373289992_6716978198117

      And most importantly, I got promoted in May.

    • Buff Buddies: Conclusion

      7 months ago

      Qeth RKC

      Quick breakdown of what my goals were:


      1) Earn another stripe on my belt in BJJ in the next 8-16 weeks.

      Just got my 4th stripe today, 25Feb16. Next step is a belt promotion. I highly doubt I'll be ready for the next belt by spring promotion, but I am hoping I will be ready by fall.


      2) Increase my one rep max on my squat and deadlift to 365# by mid-late January.

      I hit 365# on my deadlifts on 08Feb16, but fell short on my 365# squats.


      3) Increase my conditioning and increase my "flow" in BJJ and kickboxing.

      This was an extension of #1, with extra conditioning thrown in in the form of kettlebells metcons.


      I am satisfied with the results. I stumbled a few weeks due to minor injuries and aches or sickness, but overall, not bad for an old man.


      My goals for the rest of 2016:

      1) Train in BJJ consistently 3x/ week at the bare minimum, 1x a week for kickboxing mitt work, and at least 2x/ month MMA.

      2) Hit 400# for both squats and deadlifts.

      3) Augment strength training with kettlebell and/ or body weight conditioning work.


      Here's to Buff Buddies!

        I work for the Devil. And by that, I mean major banks and loan servicers that invested in CMBS (the reason for the housing market failure in 2008). I review property reports and do oversight for remediation. It sounds more exotic than it is, I basically make sure the banks don't make a bad situation worse and I improve property values so that they get more money back after they've foreclosed on a property.

        Not for you it isn't - that's what's important! I bet you'd think my work is boring, considering I spend 99% of it at a desk. The other 1% my boss lets me get out of the office to write the reports that I review. Ooohhhh... fun! smiley6.gif

        Not sure who she was, but it was from a relatively new anime. I had to help her make some super long WWI or WWII era sniper rifle from PVC pipes for her first costume, and her second one was a half black/ half white hooded zip up sweater with ears on the hood.

        I bet we can entice a bunch of the crew if we had a proper RTSF. Heck, I just want to hang out with RT fans. The closest thing I've had was a random citing of a guy wearing a "Cinnamon, NOOO!" shirt at the mall.
