Yeah no problem. They look solid, and I like mine so far. I was going to go shooting today, but not feeling it.

I went to Walmart to look for a model, they used to have them a few years ago but they didn't. So many old people. My god.

Especially with the launch of the Xbox1. They are failing miserably in the software and cell phone market. In class we just did a case analysis on that.

$250 left to finish this other AR. I need stripped upper, bolt, and rail.

I think I have a spare charging handle and I have an extra BCG.

Exactly, they lose several hundred $ per machine sold, make money on games. With M$ trying to remake themselves, new CEO etc - I could see this happening. M$ is no longer a game centric company....

Amazon on the other hand needs more profitable revenue streams and they just bought a game studio Double Helix....

http://techcrunch.com/2014/02/05/ama...e-helix-games/

This is a serious possibility. Also keep in mind that Amazon could integrate their Prime/Shopping features more fully into the XBone. So lots of advantages for them.

Will be interesting to see if it happens.

It is scuttlebutt at this point:

http://www.gamepur.com/news/13696-mi...s-insider.html

Thats the rumors flying around.

You do make some good points... but idk, i just can't see microsoft actually following through with that. They'd lose share holders and revenue.

I'm pretty excited for the Steam boxes to eventually start going main stream and be put into electronic and game retailers.

The question is, are they making money on it? Losing massive amounts on the console and making thin margin on the games may not be what they want long term, especially with the new CEO and the hedge funds are moving in demanding better profits etc.

From what they are saying - it would take years to do it, but my belief is in several years M$ be a shell of its former self....they are in deep doo doo....

places aren't too overpriced depending where, one of those things where price is relative. I clearly avoid bro places. I also like to see the local live music. we just like different scenes you and I.
