Have To Keep BGE Food Safe Somehow...

imageMy 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.

  • You and I have a similar thought on how to protect the BGE, BGE food, and SWMBO.
    Persistence and determination are omnipotent!
  • Must protect the eggs!
    Adjustable stock, vertical grip(want to get an angled grip), bipod, light (not seen), Aimpointe red dot, Eotech 3x fold down sight, Pmags for days!

    You and I would get along just fine. I'm curious, how much does the ar weigh fully loaded?
    Be careful, man! I've got a beverage here.

    That's a good question Travis, I'll have to see if I can add up known weights or find a good scale and toss it on there.

    Now I just need to find the time to take it out to the range and sight in that Aimpoint T1.
