Default Greetings all.....

Been a while since the days of TTB and when I was actively involved in the computer world.........Got a birthday greeting and decided to stop in and tell y'all what my new gig is......I am the CEO, designer, and Owner of Macon Armory Inc.
We build pistol caliber conversions for the AR-15/M4/M16 platform in calibers form 9mm, 40 S&W, 7.62 x 25, and 45 ACP with 10mm and 45 win mag in development.
Here are a couple of test videos of our Blowback and Gas operated 45.....

Holy cow! It HAS been a long time.

I tried to buy TTB after Jason let it go, but it got snapped up by a broker and they want $$$$ for it with no negotiation.

So... Jason moved up to Boston. Still works for his brother in law.

TC survived breast cancer is engaged to a guy in the bay area and spends her time back and forth between the bay and Michigan.

Yakko is still in Florida.

Good to know.....just came here to ask a software question and saw the departure post......HATE people like that......If you see this, could you shoot me an email at rudyk@maconarmory.com? I'd like to connect with Jason TC and Yakko......thinks are progressing to the point that I may need a fulltime tech geek in the next year or two, hell if you want to come to Georgia for a little stress relief...I just ordered another 2000 rounds of 45 ACP......... got to feed the submachineguns...... Come on down and we'll get you some trigger time...Might even have a belt fed running by then...and I'm sure I can round up a printer or two that need to be put to death.....
