I cut a 4% deal on my house. The inventory was low and the agent did a good job. She listed 2 weeks before allowing showing and for what I thought was a good price, she said it was low. The day of the broker open House we had agents come with clients and a bidding war that led to me getting 4.5% over my ask on the first day. I also negotiated a bit of cash back from the listing and selling agent (2k). It was just really fortunate timing and I had a nice House.
The interesting thing was more than half the people who made offers wrote us letters about themselves and family and why they wanted the house. I guess that’s a new thing?
"Most nights in Afghanistan, I wielded an M4 carbine and a .40-caliber pistol. The total barrel length of my M4 was approximately 14 inches with Trijicon ACOG sights, as well as an infrared laser. I usually carried 10 magazines stacked with 20 rounds of 5.56-millimeter ammunition each."
Can someone with prior or current military service explain the following?
*Why is his sidearm a .40 cal and not a 9mm?
*Does the Army use 20 round magazines or is he downloading 30 round magazines by 10?
