Hi, I'm Kory.

I have been checking out this board for about a month, and decided to join in on the fun. I have been collecting guns off and on for about 7 years, and never thought I would get an AR (I am in the Military, and shoot theirs all the time). Anyway, I got the "itch" to have one about 4 months ago, so in March I picked it up. It is a pre-ban Oly Arms (I noticed a lot of people are anti oly, thats cool, I like mine), A2 style with a Wilson H-Bar barrel. I have put roughly 100 rounds through it a week, since I got it. I love to shoot, and having MY own AR is so much better than using the military's.

So I just like to shoot, I probably will never get into the "my guns are better than your guns" conversations, but I think a little competition is a good thing. Just wanted to introduce myself.

Hola. [wave] Now it's time to start planning your next one! I bought my first in Jan. and am planning of building about 3 more.

Wecome to the madness. Just because our guns are better than your , does't mean your not welcome here. Hehe.

Welcome, make sure you pay a visit to the AK side and broaden your new addiction [size=1](join the dark side)[/size=1]. [:)]

Welcome Kory! I've owned 2 preban Olys and both were superb rifles. I must warn you, however, that owning ARs is a disease. Like potato chips, one is never enough. [:D]

Actualy, I have my eye set on a new pistol to be purchased soon, but I was planning on getting an AK before the end of the year. So I will probably stop at the AK side of the house too!

Welcome to the "family". [beer] I wouldn't worry about what people think of Oly's. All the major brands are pretty good. I have a friend with a preban Oly and he has never had any problems with it. How does yours compare to the military rifles? Eric

Welcome. The adiction should be growing in you. I remember when I had only one AR and a single 10rnd. mag. I seem to recall having a lot more money then too.

Welcome to the board! Want a root beer? or maybe a cool, refreshing cream soda?
Link Posted: 6/13/2003 1:02:00 PM EDT
Holeshot- My Oly handles great, the biggest difference (besides the fact that the Army uses M4's now, and has 3 round burst) is that my Oly is very tight. The military carbines/rifles I have carried are used and abused, so now they are loose and rattle. But my M4 in Korea had a C-Cos scope (red dot scope) and four rails for handguards, it was cool! killingmachine123- I have many, many 30 rd mags, and just loaded a ton of ammo. Loading your own ammo is so much cheaper. I will have to get my own press soon, and stop using my friends. Zardoz- Thanks, but, what are you talking about (soda??????????????)

Don't mind me; I'm nuts.

Greetings, I am new here too. I just got my second, an Oly to go beside my Armalite. I am already planning my third acquisition...... :D

Yeah, I had heard that they were pretty loose and well used. It sounds like your M4 was pretty nice. Are they issuing everyone in the Army M4's now? They haven't totally given up on the 20" A2's have they? Eric

Minnesota? A refugee from C&R* State! You poor smuck. It’s too bad when your last Gov was in place he did do anything to improve that. That being said, Be Very, Very Glad you’re not a Left Coastie. And welcome to the party! *If I'm in error, excuse me. I've had a bad day.

Welcome to the Board, Kory.

Kory, I have never heard of an Oly that would not shoot. It's the best deal for the money. Colts are way overpriced for what they deliver; Bushmaster and RRA are great too. No one has ever posted specs on the metallurgical strenth differences between a cast and a forged reciver, so that is also a moot point too. You have an excellent rifle at a bargain price.

I thought it was "pop" down south? [:P] At least that is what my wife said they called it in AZ. Eric
Link Posted: 6/14/2003 12:10:08 PM EDT
hell no, down here at least, everything is coke. if its a sprite, its a coke, if its a dr. pepper, its a coke, and just in case you were curious, if its a coke, its also a coke!!!! "you want a coke?" "sure." "what kind?" "root beer" gotta love it [:D]

Well... My wife set me straight (again![:P]). She says that Texas is south, and Arizona is "the west." And , in "the west" they say "pop". And ,like you said, everything in Texas is "coke". Sorry for the confusion (mine). I thought she was gonna throw a rod! I think she was a little surprised that you let me off so easy. She says that as far as Texas is concerned "the south" ends there. The rest is west. [:D] Eric

Welcome to the board! 'Tis a great place: you're really going to like it here!
Link Posted: 6/16/2003 5:21:25 AM EDT
Hey, Kory! You'll find that the guys on this site are more than helpful if you have any questions about your AR, sights, accessories, etc. I have saved a lot of money and grief by learning from their experiences. Don't hesitate to ask about something if you have a question.

Where and when were you stationed in Korea? I just left there, so maybe I seen you around. Chris

Hey Kory! I'm a newbie here myself. Been lurking here for about a month and have already picked up some things from these guys. See y'all around! Wade

Welcome aboard, MyWar. As someone else said, it's like potato chips, nobody can have just one. Holeshot4, TexRdnec, I know what you mean. Coke, soda and "pop" are the same thing--but only in the South. In other places, there's a difference, like 5-8 for coke possession...

ya, before you know it you'll have something like, oh, i dont know, 828 posts? [:D] oh, and imscolt: my grandmother, raised down here but old school, always combined the two and asked if anybody wanted a "sodie pop." but probably the only person down here i've ever heard call a coke anything except coke.............
