Emergency Preparation / Real Men Prefer Face Painting!
« Last post by Taurian on Today at 06:46:13 AM »
You are in your sniper's nest wrapped in your favorite Ghillie suit waiting for the hordes of zombies to come within scoping distance.  Are you covering your face with a mask, netting, or other means to hide your face. Or, have you perfected your face paint to a degree that you could be taken for the flora and fauna in which you lie?  If you wear glasses (as I do), are your spectacles camouflaged? Have you spent countless numbers of hours painting your favorite scoped long rifle the same pattern as your other camouflage?

If you are one of those who will face the assault head on with you favorite load-bearing vest that is weighted with its maximum load-out and full body armor that will stop everything short of an RPG, you should pass on the linked article.

Hey, this is serious stuff!

Headnets vs. Face Paint: Which is Better for Hunting?

And if you just can't handle the 'connector' between grip and stock it can be removed as long as 922R(?) rules are otherwise dealt with. I've seen a couple done that way.

I really don't mind the "connector", as it may just work to reduce "flex" or warping of the stock.  Why Beretta decided on this "connector" is beyond my thinking; however, it does make the firearm very recognizable.

I received some of my "running spares' for it yesterday and installed a short rail on the left side to balance out the firearm (a short rail was already mounted on the right side).  I mounted the rail more to provide a handhold rather than use them for mounting stuff - unless somebody comes out with a Picatinny rail Slim-Jim holder.

I have three 17-round magazines (bought during a special on them) and will probably order a couple of 20-round magazines for it to evaluate them.  I don't know if I would like the 30-round magazines; I have read about problems with them.  I guess that it may depend on the manufacturer.  The 20-round magazine will fit well in my vest pocket; the 30-round version not so much.

I am working up a design for some grip tape on the pistol grip. Some rubberized material like that used in Talon grips may work well.

I thought about adding the barrel shroud to help protect the muzzle, but quickly threw that idea out the window.  I don't need to add a pound of weight to the front end and it would make keeping things clean a PITA.

It is still hard to believe that the CX4 Storm has a "plastic" hammer, but it seems to do its job.

The trigger; although slightly heavy, was actually better than a very high-priced "Bullpup' that I handled at the range this past weekend.  The trigger break is crisp and as long as the firearm does what it is supposed to, I see no reason to mess with the trigger group.

It is said that beauty is in the eye of the beholder; I'll be holding on to this one.

If we wore white, and painted our guns white, would be considered the "good guys" then?  ::)
Only if he wore a white hat. ;)

Great job to the store owner, but the One sided Media still has to call the rifle a "ASSAULT RIFLE" are you kidding me!!
At least they gave credit to the law-abiding citizen who used it to defend himself against multiple assailants. - But you won't see BHO discuss this incident during his next meet-the-press speech, particularly since his homeys were the perps.

WOW! at first, I was like? I'd do it, but now? not so sure

Congratulations on your new eyes, Richard.

Don't look too far into the future, though.

I have added an update to the review that addresses an issue with inserting magazines.
