I had this on my mind when I got up today. No idea why.

Fish sticks with spicy chipotle organic mayo. I thought it sounded good but I'm disappointed. I think they use chipotle mayo on the cod sandwiches they sometimes have at the burger place. It should be good on pollack fillet fish sticks too. I'll get some pickles out of the fridge to with it and maybe that will be better.

I have a S&W 15-22 out of their performance shop, and if you priced one of these out, it comes close to what you want.  It comes with a 16" barrel, flat top, and iron sights, adjustable stock.
Just a suggestion. They have a less costly version, around $500. The only difference is the match chamber.
All I positively know is my grandkids really like to shoot it, especially when I supply the ammo. I have 2 10-22's, one a take down, but they always ask for the S&W. Just buy lots of ammo.

Welcome to the forum Dirty Bob. 

You should refer your AF buddies to the Museum of the Pacific for some education.

This was the first thing I thought of when I read about shortening the pistol grip. This was too short to work well and it didn't need to be that way.

Thanks Les!

Lots of good ideas and a different perspective. As funds are short, I'll have to build this like Johnny Cash sang about a different project: "One piece at a time..."

I'll probably start with the Charger, the lightweight chassis, and a simple buffer tube -- Brownells sells a basic one for $19 -- wrapped in paracord with a crutch tip on the end. I like the way "Major Pandemic" mods A2 pistol grips: he shortens and stipples them, cuts slots and does a paracord "backstrap." There's a pic of one in this article: Favorite AR15 Parts. I'll add the optic and mount as soon as I can. No folding mechanism, fancy pistol grips, or muzzle devices until later. This will give me a fairly compact carbine substitute, and I can add other parts later.

My big reason for sticking with the .22 is that I want to practice a lot more, and carrying a weird pistol like this lets me do it more often. Unlike some folks, I won't leave a gun unattended in a car for long periods of time -- especially at night. That's why the obsession with small size: I want a bag that doesn't look like anything special for carrying to and from the car. Unfortunately, a 10/22 in any bag -- even a "covert" bag -- is still a pretty large package.

I do already have a compact AR for car carry and defense. If we start getting more frequent Antifa and other street violence and civil unrest, I'll have it with me on a regular basis. I hope we don't come to that, but I don't want to go the way of Reginald Denny.

I'm including a pic of the table I used to help me decide what route to take. Part of the fun of any build is deciding on parts, shopping and planning.

All my best,
Dirty Bob

Thanks, Timothy!

There's not a lot of us Navy types down here in Texas, but you can't throw a stick without hitting someone who is -- or was -- in the Air Force. I like the Air Force folks, but they don't understand sea stories.

Thanks again,
