Welcome back to the 58th installment of my blog, in which I don’t claim to be an expert, in fact, the opposite. I’m a new user of the AR platform and want to share my findings and experiences as I go through and build rifles as well as being the Operations Manager at Tyrant Designs.

If you’re anything like me, everything you do in life is to impress your father in the hopes that one day he says he’s proud of you. Chances are if it hasn’t happened yet, it’s not going to anytime soon (or so says my therapist). UNLESS you get him a bad ass father’s day gift which is Sunday, June 17th by the way. Here is a list of cool father’s day gift ideas for the tacticool dad.

If you could assign a dollar amount to how much you love your dad, I have organized this list of gifts from; I freaking love the man and he’s a role model, to, thanks for my DNA and the predispositio to diabetes.
