    If it's an H&R project that means Mike from NoDak Spud will be running the show, and he's usually done solid work before. Hopefully they come out with stripped receivers and DIY build kits in addition...

    One can only hope. The NDS guys are great. Fantastic to deal with and good work too. I'm not exactly holding my breath though, considering the whole PSA in charge deal. Something something AK's & MP5's... I hope it turns out though.

    Before he retired, Harlan told me that H&R is being run as a totally separate company under JJE Capital Holdings, but Mike would be in a position to crack the whip over at PSA too. At least, IF I'm recalling our discussion right.

    I had wondered if Harlan was moving over too. Solid guy. Helped me out countless times with questions on those XM16 lowers. That's about in line with what I've heard at least. Hope it all turns out.

    I was one of the last orders out the door before the pack-up, and Harlan shepherded it through all the way. One of the rockstars in the industry, and he'll definitely be missed.

    That H&R / PSA thing is of interest. Honestly if someone had laid the H&R brand at my feet it might have gone to waste. I can't claim I'd have thought of what they are doing. This guy had the smarts to parlay it into retro AR's and no doubt will take it further. Making H&R great again!

    Some of my faves from SHOT 2022:

    --Turkish stuff. I've been impressed with Turkish shotguns for years now. I decided to really check out the pistols. They are pretty dang good, I say with some reluctance. Some of the lesser-known US brands are not impressive; Tisas 1911's were. 'Course it didn't hurt at all that all the Turks manning the booths were just the cooled of dudes, I really enjoyed them. They knew their stuff and also were good listeners.

    --This guy:

    was animated and enthusiastic about his stuff, and I thought they were very clever tools. Worth a look if you're building AR's. His bolt catch "roll pin wizard"... we had a good laugh about all the Colts we have both seen with black paint, right out of the box, from where they scratched it putting this pin in.

    --The take-down AR from Cry Havoc https://cryhavoctac.com/. I got introduced to the guy by my friend at SIG. This is said to be strapped to the ejection seat of our fighters. I've checked it out some it gonna be getting some live-with time.

    --The Ounce .22. A ten-shooter that is really, really different. I would have one-- some day-- because innovators deserve to be recognized.
    https://www.gunsamerica.com/digest/1...hot-show-2022/

    --ZRO Delta. Good looking stuff, made here, granted at prices that say made here, but.... not made by opposers of human rights and all that. ZRO-D is hooked up at some level with US Optics.

    --Innovation in general-- we saw lots of small operations with big new ideas. That's where a lot of the good stuff comes from, folks-- let inventors invent dammit! without punishing them with burdensome regulations and unaffordable patent fees. Some of the big boys too-- I mean who can better afford to hire a bunch of smart and/or experienced and/or degreed engineers who have maybe worked elsewhere in the firearms biz? Who can better afford state of the art R&D facilities and the latest CAD software? And yet..... many of them, honestly fall short on innovation. They make up for it by copying each other, or by copying the little guy who struggled and put it on the line to generate a new idea; they make up for it by announcing "look what we did (copied)" on the back cover of all the gun magazines. They make up for it by spending lots of money promoting it and making it seem like a new idea, making it seem like it was their idea.

    --Many friends. WMD Guns. Michael Bane and Patrick Sweeney. The Farnams. Got some celeb pics with them and Garand Thumb, Colion Noir, and a few others.

    That “roll pin wizard” is cool as heck. I usually use the starter I got from kak, but I may give this one a go going forward. It’s the little things like that which makes assembly a breeze.

    Ned, look up "GAU-5 Aircrew Self Defense Weapon." It uses a Midwest rail, and Midwest offers both upper-only and complete pistol builds. Pretty sweet piece of kit, I'd like to know more about how it and the mags are packed in the survival kit so I can eventually build a museum-quality replica.

    Please let Pat and Mike know some of us back at the old haunt still miss them, also.
