Have To Keep BGE Food Safe Somehow...
My home and dinner defense 101.
Sig Sauer M400 Enhanced (means the stock, grip and hand guard were
upgraded to Magpul as well as the magazine along with some other
upgrades). I added an Aimpoint Micro T1 optic on a LaRue Tactical LT660
mount allowing for a lower 1/3 co-witness of the iron sights through the
optic. A Magpul MVG® - MOE® Vertical Grip for indexing while utilizing
the "thumb break method" of weapons
manipulation. I also added a Magpul 5 slot 1913 Picatinny rail section
to the Magpul MOE hand guard, then I mounted an INFORCE® WML HSP (Weapon
Mounted Light-Haley Strategic Partners) to it using a Thorntail 1913
Offset Adaptive Mount. This setup is PERFECT as it mounts the light high
and forward and at an angle positioning the uniquely angled momentary
switch right where one's thumb would naturally be using the "thumb break
method" of weapons manipulation. To keep all of this awesomeness with
me I added a Damage Industries Large D Loop (the "D" loop keeps the
sling from binding while switching to offhand weapons manipulation)
Quick Detach Sling Swivel in black oxide finish to a Magpul MS2
Multi-Mission Sling. I also mounted a MSA™ - MOE® Sling Attachment to
the hand guard for use when the MS2 sling goes from single point sling
to two point sling mode. When the magazine is loaded up with Hornady TAP
ammo (reduces muzzle flash to protect night vision) it's a very
formidable tool for home defense.
The Sig Sauer P226 chambered
in .40 S&W and outfitted with Crimson Trace Laser Grips, which
resides in a quick access pistol safe, is meant to fight my way to the
safe to get the AR-15 and get into the fight. I surely hope I NEVER need
either of these tools... but I sure would rather have them and not need
them than to need them and not have them.
Every time my elbow bends my mouth flies open.
