Bob had bought a complete AR lower not intending to get an upper.
He could not stand it and got one anyway.
I really do appreciate the story. not much of that stuff happens in my neck of the woods, good thing to bare in mind.
on a side note
You know what's always a bit spooky? Finding a cache of ammunition and magazines in a dumpster. I don't quite understand who would have ditched it in a dumpster, but Hand to god. I was living in a small sh!t dump town of about 14,000 called Red Bluff. The town was a Sh!t hole. lots of crime, lots of meth, heroin, pills, the bad stuff. Well, I was taking the trash out in my Quadplex to the dumpster, and noticed a yellow dewalt duffle bag. Always curious, I decided to pull it out of the trash. Opened it, and immediately closed it, and took it up to my apartment. probably a stupid idea, but what the hell, right?
Three AR mags, two .45 pistol mags (Maybe 1911? not sure), and three 15 round 9mm mags- all gassed up, three boxes of 9mm, one box of .45, a couple hand fulls of twelve gauge 00 buckshot, and two boxes of 5.56. I understand that it's probably just someone's shooting bag, but considering the location, the fact that someone just dropped it in a dumpster, and the fact that the magazines were loaded was cause for suspicion.
that's a cute toy though.
