BOTW: Jodie’s Rebel Scum Build

    The 20th Installment of Build of the Week was contributed by Jodie P.  This build is pretty straightforward. It has a decent optic, a Faxon barrel, and Strike should be happy to see a build with one of their stocks. What makes this build stand out is the paint scheme which clearly identifies its use as a terrorist weapon against the Empire. I will concede that it is probably more effective than a bunch of Storm Troopers armed with Reformations. Shots fired…

    Tom is a former Navy Corpsman that spent some time bumbling around the deserts of Iraq with a Marine Recon unit, kicking in tent flaps and harassing sheep. Prior to that he was a paramedic somewhere in DFW, also doing some Executive Protection work between shifts. Now that those exciting days are behind him, he teaches wilderness medicine and writes for a number of publications, including The Prepared, a site devoted to self-preparedness. He hopes that his posts will help you find solid gear that will survive whatever you can throw at it–he is known (in certain circles) for his curse…ahem, ability…to find the breaking point of anything.
