Just got back from the gun shop. I cant believe i bit the bullet and bought a brand new Bushmaster. Its the 16" A3 heavy barrel. I got it for $879. Did i do ok? I wasnt planning on buying one brand new, i actualy kinda wanted to build one. I didnt wnat to spend much over 700, but then i fell in love with it when i saw it. Owell hopefully buying a new one will pay off.

Its a uncurable disease, congrats! I bought a Bushy 16 Hbar like yours than I got a rail, than I sold the upper and built a M4gery upper on a LMT, than I bought 2 more LMT lowers and bought a MRP CQB upper, than got Randall Roush to build me a SPR and a 16 Middy, than I bought another MRP rifle this time and I'm wondering what to build next. I need ARAA. Help me please. Welcome aboard! My latest buying spree was all the tools to do everything on one. Oh and ammo.......lots stacked high and deep.

Congratulations. I have the same rifle and couldn't be happier. Just buy a couple of cases of good ammo and a stack of new mags and you'll be set.

Thanks for all the replies guys. I dont have it just yet, they only had one left when iwas there and somebody was suposed to be picking it up today. They had 9 more at their warehouse, so I will be able to get it tomorrow or the next day. I will post some pics but you guys will have to walk me threw it, I am new here. Dang i was shaking when I handed him my credit card. Yeah yeah I know i dont really have the money, but owell Im almost done with school. I had to hold it for like 20 minutes before i finaly said yes, and then had a big kid smirk on my face when I walked out.

Finaly got some pics. I went home to my parents house for spring break and didnt have my camera with me. Here she is. I already have almost 500 rounds through her. I have even discoverd that it doesnt like Wolf ammo to much, but its just ganna have to deal with it, because i was getting the stuff for 3.50 a box. Some times it wont reload the next round, but all in all i am extremily happy with it.

Crap! how do i post a picture?

just use [ and ] wherever you see { and }..


another alternative is to use Photobucket.com instead, it give you the code for IMG tags just copy and paste them.
