A-arons Odds news of the week

Chipotle says no open carry So Chipotle said no more open carry in their restaurants after a couple of guys felt it was necessary to carry Sporting rifles into one of their restaurants. Moms Demand Action sent out a protest letter and Chipotle conceded to the request of all 6 of their members. While I love Chipotle and I will continue to eat there it got me thinking, what foods go well with an AR, I mean ribs is out, your hands would be covered in BBQ sauce, tacos would fly everywhere if you tried a mag change with anything but a soft shelled taco. I mean Chipotle is really missing the market here, burritos beg to be tactical. Anyhow, what foods do you think would be horrible or good to have on you in case you needed to use your AR?

    @Jeremy:  If you’re looking for grips for the GP100 have a look at Gemini Customs:

    They just finished my SP101 and put some beautiful Bolivian rosewood grips on it…the revolver looks epic!

  4. JeremyP

    NotoriousAPP Way too much money, but thanks. Not really big on those grips, but the barrel porting would be nice.

  5. herrinx

    NotoriousAPP herrinx gunguygreg I guess I just don’t see why it’s a big deal. Additionally @gunguygreg, I asked him what his name meant, not like he was proselytizing.
