So the doc says I've caught the BRD virus. It won't be long now until it goes full blown.

Build my first AR lower last night. Hughes Precision with a Magpul MOE stock and LPK from Spike's.

Wellllcome. BBBBWWWWHAAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!!

I started building my own w/in the last year and its pretty fulfilling and relatively inexpensive (lowers that is) as opposed to cars or other spendy hobbies.

There's no cure for BRD you know. It's progressive

I built my first AR back in the 80's. I just finished number 4. Now I have the urge to build #5.

Nice, my first build was on a Hughes Precision lower as well.

No shit, it's an industrial disease.

Well it didn't take long to spread. Last night I picked up an upper from the local fun store. I'll put pictures up tonight

Congrats on contracting such a wonderful infection. I finished #3 last night and put my lower together for #4 as well. Upper will have to wait for Christmas.

Mine seems to be more conservative/libertarian, but definitely incurable!

Who makes the upper?

What kind of upper is that?

Now go shoot it.

If someone did 50% would complain that it was developed too quickly, 48% would bitch about there being thimerosol in it and the rest would say that it would turn you into a zombie and call dibs on your guns, ammo, wife, etc.

DPMS. I overpaid for it at the gun store (could have gotten it for maybe $100 cheaper online) but I don't really care

Already have plans to take it out and get it sighted in on Sunday! I found the black rifle contingent at work; several of us are going to a local range to break it in.

I just started my first complete build. using spikes upper and lower.. inexpensive considering my other hobby is helicopter , yep these AR are cheap

Ok so i also have the bug and its worse than pig flu, sars, and ebola combined. I currently have three completed lowers and am ready to take the next step. Uppers.. perhaps a build-it-yourself expert would like to converse about how i should go about it? i'm thinking a 16", 20", and not sure for the third.. but i'm going to concentrate on the 16" first. should i build from scratch or just buy an upper? M4 vs ? email me.

Sounds like you started with a good upper and lower!
