New year, new guns (pics)

I just finished putting this thing together, I was roped into Larue's sale on kits. I had this one cerakoted in Tungsten gray, the wife (no pics) bought me a trijicon accupower 1-8x. Rifle is capped with a ballista over the barrel can which only adds 4" to the gun. I'm hoping to get to the range today and get it zeroed. I'll post range pics when possible. 

 

In the meantime, you are free to be jealous of my Boba Fett slippers

Thanks for the assist 

Looks good. I have a limited edition Boba Fett shirt that beats the slippers, though. 

Ohhh she’s purdy. Whats the overall barrel length? Chambered in 5.56?

Ahhhh, to live in a free state.

Badass slippers!

Beautiful! 

Color me jealous!

NICE!!!

Where are the pics from the range?

Nice. Never have shot a weapon outfitted with a suppressor. With an ar-223 or 556 round, what does it do with the noise? 

I know it's not like the movies-whisper quiet. But does it do enough to maybe conceal the shooter's location?

Does it affect aim at all?

Thanks, and that's a nice looking setup.

SHOOT WHOEVER PICKED THAT CARPET

Hello beautiful

Shooting suppressed is a lot more comfortable but it's still pretty loud. The bullet is still (usually) supersonic so there's that loud crack as it travels downrange. It does prolong and dampen the recoil impulse turning the 'kick' into a mild shove. Aside from the additional gas blowback with AR style rifles, shooting suppressed is awesome. Much more enjoyable.

SHOOT WHOEVER PICKED THAT CARPET

That's the wife's rug (the only rug of hers you'll see on the OG) but the carpet matches the drapes 

Nice, I built a Larue 5.56/.223 a year or so ago, they have nice stuff.

fun facts: their address online is not their real physical address, Mark Larue is apparently super secretive and we could not even do a tour of the factory becaue they were working on a fed/gov order at the time. We even had to have a  chapperone to go to the vending machines near the build floor.

They host an Armorer's class a couple times per year at their facility, I took the class last year it was pretty good. One of the guys in my class got kicked out for not listening during some of the assembly sections. He kept asking dumb questions and not paying attention to the answers from the instructor.

Their facility is a non-descript group of buildings off a country road in Leander, TX.
