Sure did, bombadillo, and checked out the MVP forum. It strikes me that even with the "sale" price ($599 IIRC), Big 5 is doing a little price gouging and the purchase may wait until this all blows over. I do want one, though. I'm leaning towards a shorter barrel, though. Nice so see that someone on the MVP forum has come up with a correct barrel nut wrench, that would make it easy to get the barrel length and muzzle configuration that I would like.
I'm retired. That's right, retired. I don't want to hear about the cop who stopped you today or how you didn't think you should get a ticket. That just makes me grumpy!
