I have not seen any confirmation of North Texas shoot dates this year which tells me James is still busy elsewhere. I do suspect the round count is still climbing since I shot it and there is no fear to drop the hammer again or we would have heard about it
I can appreciate that Life Happens. But, you were, actually, on the range, fired Old Dirty, but failed to memorialize said event with not even 1 photograph? Or is it that we are not worthy to see your memory? Inquiring minds want to know!

Funny it says not for AR15 owners, Pat Rogers ran all AR15s at his training academy and they ran well over 30k rounds and never cleaned any of them! Otherwise it's nice to see this thread still alive after so long.
