I haven't opened up one of my safes in so long so when I did I found my first rebuild custom AR rifle. it is an old oly arms I got back when I was 18. damn that was 12 years ago. It has been much the same but I added the rail system in 2000 to replace the old smooth FFT. I got the barrel in the 90's when it was hard and expensive to get an M-4 barrel. painted the rifle and scope when I moved to the desert in 99. I haven't shot this rifle in probably 2 years. I feel like a dead beat dad. I need to go throw some brass on the ground with it. I have taken probably 12 yotes with it and it has had some massive rounds go throught the tube.

just wanted to show it off

I always file teh ARs as just ARs in my memory. I have been giving the Aks most of my time as of lately, I guess.
I have no time to shoot lately and when I do I usualy am doing load development for farther reaching toys.

Kind of sad I know.

Man, I wish I could find something like that laying around here

Looks great, but you really need to shoot it. It looks lonely.

Cool looking rig, esp. for a first time build. You gotta bond more with her, she does look forlorn.

Must be interesting to have SO many safes/guns that you FORGET what you have
Link Posted: 9/14/2005 8:17:25 PM EDT
I only have 2 safes. 1 for storage and 1 for my "shooting" stuff. I have a few "collector" rifles that I dont shoot and some old family stuff.

How do you forget that rifle for 2 yearswhat type of father are you

Hey JimLost... Dont let your Safe become a TIME CAPSULE!... Heres mine... an OLY Arms going back 16 years. (SGW)
Link Posted: 9/17/2005 7:13:44 PM EDT

I've actually had dreams (real when I was sleeping dreams) that I went in the safe and found guns I forgot I owned. To date it has yet to actually happen. I suppose if I keep buying it may sometime in the future.

later,

I wonder how many firearms I would have to own in order for me to forget one.

I took her on a horrible trip. Family emergency my mother had a stroke. I was able to take a brake from the fun and made it to a stretch of gov land and gave her a serious workout of 550 rounds. Never skipped a beat. damn I remeber why I built this thing like this.
