I have been reading these forums for quite some time and have decided to recently join to participate and contribute towards this community of knowledge (think tank). First of all i would like to thank everyone here for pictures, discussions, opinions, etc. If it wasn't for this site and youtube...i'd be buying who knows what for who knows how much...and not building squat.

Anyways a little background. When i turned 18 i bought a shotgun (winchester defender 1300) and a 10/22. When i turned 21 i bought a glock (23) and since then grew up, got married, had kids and time passed. About a couple of years ago i noticed my wife and her "collection" of crap. She has been spending a fortune on purses, shoes and makeup and has developed quite a collection. So, one day fed up with it all...I decided to get even with her...i started a gun collection.

after getting the FN FiveseveN, and a 1911...one of my friends told me that there is a way to own an AR (i live in California BTW). Without knowing what i was doing and with the help of the internet. i bought a stripped Spike's receiver, a Stags 2H complete upper, the stags LPK and buttstock kit, a YHM 2 piece railed handguard and the damn bullet button . I traded someone some some other gun parts for a EoTech 512 and 3x magnifier. slapped it all together, went out to my buddy's ranch shot 400 rounds through it and was so impressed with it.

Reading these forums and hanging around other gun nuts it wasn't long before i was buying and building more AR's. the next one was a Noveske N6 lower and the Armalite AR10-A4 complete upper, Armalite LPK with a CAA buttstock, and a Nikon prostaff 4x12x40, putting together an AR-10 (308).

soon after that it was another spikes lower with a custom Del-ton upper, YHM specter diamond FF, spikes enhanced LPK, Magpul MOE stock and grips and an aimpoint ml3. Now realizing that each stick that i have so far has been a learning experience.

my most recent and first real build is a matched noveske N4 upper and lower with a 14.5" noveske barrel, the Denny's vortex flash suppressor (pinned and welded), a DD 12" lite rail, the spikes nickle BCG and the Magpul CTR stock and MOE grip...

- - -

Now i feel like a crack fiend and am looking for another build (any ideas or recommendations welcome)
It's nice to see that i'm not alone and there are others out there with a larger collection...

anyways, NICE TO MEET YOU ALLl, hope to be of any help for anyone who asks.
here are some pix of my AR journey so far...

Welcome, You sound alot like me but after my 3rd AR I did an AK and MP5. I'd have to say about 5 black rifles in a year. So I def. know the feeling of getting that itch rite after you just finish one!
