    After today, it's all historical.

    I tried to push the envelope, but found that it was stationery.

    Have you heard about the new corduroy pillows? They're making head lines!

    I bought these strictly for nostalgia;
    Top - M11 with 1st gen LAGE slow-fire upper (this upper also works on the registered M11 receiver)
    Left - Steyr SPP
    Right - registered M11

    Those are some greats firearms KK. I’ve thought about getting one similar to your M11 with the LAGE upper. IIRC El Duce has an LAGE upper for his MAC but I haven’t tried one. How do you like it? I think they will accept the Suomi 71rd drums too won’t they?

    The only examples of the 80’s guns referenced in the article that I currently own is a Beretta 92FS and a Python, (Valentines Day gift from my wife about 10 years ago) pictured below. Both are lovely weapons.



    I’ve recently been considering adding a Mini-14 to the armory but don’t know if I’d go for the old folder model like that one in the A-Team or a more “practical” model/variation?
