I don't understand bfc... They blocked all links with "dyndns" in the hostname, because apparently some malicous websites have that in their address. Too bad that whole bunch of servers (including mine) use dyndns, not just malicious websites.

What's next? Blocking all websites that end in ".com"?

Yeah, their servers are a huge mess. It's not just viruses, they're getting DoS attacks, too.

Is that why there are so many of those "server is too busy at this time" messages?

I wanted to see how it would look/stand up. It looks 18097 times better in person. It didnt work anyway and was beyond repair, so why not?

Good luck now. All the internal studs where you mount internal stuffs are all covered in powdercoat. I had to use a hammer and punch to get the stupid trigger and hammer on (hows about that for some tight tolerances )

I might do my AK next, but in machine grey and navy blue. Not sure yet...

I dunno, honestly I like anodized or bare metal/ heat treatments on guns, powder just looks a little too plasticky for my tastes.

I guess it depends on the gun. It does look a little tacky on a small revolver, but think of how cool it could be on like an AR15. Leave the lower and upper that machine metal look, but say like the quad rails (JUST the rails, not the entire handguard), mags, and (if its an A3 detach carry) the carry handle. If pulled off right, it could be sick.

I wont be trying it on my AR anytime soon though

Went to replace the tensioner on my car finally and broke one of the bolts taking it out, then proceeded to burn the crap out of myself removing the broken bolt. So of course I wake up sick, and get kicked out of the office to go work from home. Anyone want to come reassemble my car for me? I don' wanna. *sniffle*
