My subversive nature has taken to leaving my year or two old editions of firearms industry magazines such as Guns & Ammo and American Rifleman on the desks in the classroom.
Despite what your initial thoughts about what the reaction to this might be, this has not led to getting them pulled and tossed, and instead has led to many a discussion about firearms between myself and my fellow students, as well as among just the other students AND the students and the instructors.
On a related note, I overheard this conversations on Monday.
Student: “Hey Don, how hard would it be to make one of these in the fab shop?” (pointing to a picture of an AR mag).
Instructor: “Depends on if you want to use two pieces of sheet metal or just one. Why?”
Student: “I think I’m going to try getting one put together sometime.”
Instructor: “Cool. You should start with two pieces. Do you have one to copy?”
I do enjoy this class.
But on a slightly different note, the other day Wolf said something which reminded me that I’m going to be able to build double walled vaults before I’m done here. Anybody else want one? Have gun and torch. Will travel.
