    Greetings from Central FL

    I don't think I did an introduction yet, so here goes:
    After HS, Marine Corps
    Saw the show in Iraq; was bored.
    After USMC, five years at a major gun company as an R&D Tech (Not Robarm, but met Alex at SHOT; he showed me a parody of Hitler complaining about the Massada/ACR/Magpul/Bushmaster/Remington's launch price)
    After gun company, CNC Programmer/Machinist
    Burn out
    Become Truck Driver
    That sucks
    Back to school
    Too expensive; work for school as Armed Security
    Free Classes, free food; profit.

    Wanted an XCR since launch. No money. Wait until used. Find a 1st gen on Gunbroker. Barrel is shot out, but now I have one. Now, I need conversions.

    Welcome to the forum and thanks for your service.

    I just got back from Florida, wife and kids and I went for Spring break. I'm not much of a beach person so I did a tour of gunshops. I was blown away by how many in stock guns the shops had. There is nothing like that where I live.

    Welcome. Navalbeaver and kermit can hook you up with kits and parts to bring that XCR up-to-date.
