Oh man. I've got BRD really bad! What started out six months ago seemed harmless. I moved to a free state and purchased Colt MT 16" Then it was a stripped lower. You can't just have a lower laying around, so I went to the gun dealer to get a lower parts kit. While I was there, he showed me lots of cool uppers and stuff. I buy an upper and the rest of the guts to build a complete rifle. I told myself, that's it! I'm not going to get carried away here.
A month later I'm back at the dealers door step. I figure one more lower isn't going to hurt. I ask for a RRA lower. The dealer says he's out, but take a look at this really cool Bushmaster Varminter. I think to myself, I've always wanted one of those, okay I'll take it. You know, You can't just get a Varminter. Now you have to go out and get a new scope. Okay. That's it! No more!
A couple more weeks pass. I wonder if what's so special about Busmaster lowers? Off to the gun dealer I go. This time I'm lucky. He's got one in stock. I close my eyes the entire time I'm in the store so as not to be tempted. I fill out the paperwork and off I go.
You know it's just not right to have a stripped lower just laying around the house. I wonder if Busmasters parts kits are any different from the generics. Hello Bushmaster? Send me a parts kit.
What good are these guns with out magazines? It's got to be a 30 rounder. Everybody uses 30's. Off to the gun dealer. Get two. Read on AR15.com how everybodies got lots of magazines. Not just two. Go onto EE and order 5 more.
A little more time passes and the AWB ends. I'm at the gun dealer the day after the ban ends, I don't know why I'm there, but I'm there, and I see a Bushmaster 16" LE on the rack. Hey! Now that would be nice to have. The dealer raps it up and I'm out the door.
That night I'm on ARF.com and I read that Bushmanster has 30 rounders for $20. That's not a bad price. I better get some before they're gone. Hello Busmaster? Send me five.
This is so wrong. I can't afford to do this. My creditcard companies love me, but I know I've got to stop. I need help bad.
Wait. Before I stop, I still need optics.

Welcome, to reality...

Why, oh Why didn't I take the blue pill?

It all starts with that first AR. Once you are in, you are stuck.

Hello
My name is Krazny13, and I am a black rifle addict.

It has been 3 days since I last bought anything for my AR.

It first started at the age of 17 with a A2 DCM service rifle I build myself. I bought it mostly here on the EE and assembled it with the guidance of fellow ARFCOMMERs. I told myself 'Haha, those guys have no will power' and 'how can you be addicted to AR's?'. But slowly I found myself stockpiling mags and other accessories I didnt need. Then, this spring I opened my safe and found the first of many stripped lowers. I just couldn't stop. Last week I finished AR #2, a RRA/CMMG M4gery. I have had it for 8 days and I am already planning AR #3. And I am probably going to be buying a Case, sling, and mags tonight. . .

This is a terrible disease for a college student to have. Please help me find a cure by making a donation to the Krazny13 Ammunition/AR parts, er Tuition Fund.

Thank you and good night.

Krazny13.

Yes.... yes... it all sounds so familiar. Prior to moving to Az.... I was one of those poor unfortunate souls who lived under the tyranny of Commie-fornia. I knew even before I moved... the sickness had taken hold of me.... I would browse the forums borads here late at night... drooling over incredibly sexy gun porn... longing for the day that I was free to indulge in my sickness.

When I finally moved to Az... it was like a beast had been uncaged. Free at last to spend my college loans on that deliciously evil "no ban" rifle I always wanted.

HELP ME... HELP ME STOP. By the end of my current build... I won't be able to afford my tuition. The agonny of it all.

I know I know. But I must find the strength. Maybe I could move back to my cage in Commie-fornia... that might shackle the beast once again.

Then I saw the Bushmaster Modular Carbine...needed an optic...enter EOTech 552

Then I wanted a really evil rifle...LEO Bushmaster Patrolman Carbine...optics... Aimpoint ML2

Now I have teo lowers waiting for Form 1s to clear...a 10.5" (Tripower optic) and 14.5" (Plain Jane.)
