    Yup! $3348. I will have company health insurance in about a week. Too late for that to cover this, though. Ain't that always the way it goes? Praise God I am not married and have no kids...

    Got the physician's bill. Add $1447 to the ER cost of $3348 for a tidy total of $4795. That's just about five weeks' net income. I don't know right now what I would have bought with such money, but it would have paid my rent for five months...

    So very tempted to buy four extended magazine release buttons for my AR-type rifles. Each one is just a few cents short of $20 a whack. Maybe once I've earned another week's pay...

    Finally got my ten each QD lower receiver endplates. Whole lotta AR modifications on the near horizon: I have a bunch of little doo-dads and add-ons to assemble to the rifles I have-- or may not have. Now desperately needing the ambition to sit down and do it...

    Just bought off ebay a 1/4-28 UNF tap and a t-head tap handle with which I will tap the grip screw holes all the way through and will then be able to use the constant-diameter trigger-creep adjustment screw I was sent in error when I ordered a turned-down one. I will then check and through-tap any other lowers that need it, and install the creep-adjustment screws into all I have. Got a friend at a gun show right now who is looking for extended magazine releases for me. I like the s-shaped ones because they clear the hammer pin hole. Most of the others available do not.

    My friend found just one for $10, which is about half for what I've seen them on-line. I've done so much AR work for him (so he says) that he wouldn't take the sawbuck so in essence, I got the thing for no charge. Nothin' to gripe about, there...

    Fired the rifle for the first time, today. I really, really like the trigger. It goes back to its first position, then lets go with such ease and smoothness that it feels as if there's no second position to it at all. Breaks crisp & sharp. These triggers cost around eighty-some bucks. In my opinion, this trigger is better than my $135 Velocity. I'll buy more of them as the months pass. I've bought my last Velocity...

    Exponential coolness. Chances are you'll not see too many of these at your local range...
