Okay, I know I said last time that my journey to the Dark Side was complete. I got a call from Darth Vader himself, and he informed me that while I was close, it wasn't really there yet. So, today, that got fixed. I now have an Aimpoint Comp C3 scope resting naturally on the top of my AR. I'm sure there will be other tweaks to the system, but this looks like the right platform. I'll be sighting it in tomorrow after shooting the USPSA match in Greenville. Range report to follow.
PS: Catfish will need to emote as well.
