i live in eastern nc and have just got my first ar and was wondering if there is anyone close to my area where i can take lessons on the proper use and maintenance of my rifle? would love someone to show me the ins and outs of this awesome rifle so i could start building my own and improving the one that i do have. i know this sounds crazy to all you that already have mastered this rifle but i sure would like to learn about it without making big mistakes along the way. thanks

Here is your Hometown Forum for your state of residence. You'll receive better answers here when the questions are state of residence specific

True response from AR-4C; but I'll give you an answer here, IAW what I know. C2 has private range time instruction@ $100.00/hr. as well as a 2 and 4 day carbine course $350.00 and $600.00 + 400-1600 rds ammo) but the website calendar is blank.

Colonial Shooting in Va. Beach has an NRA First Steps Rifle, and an AR specific Intro to the AR-15 class.

Honestly though, it's not that hard. Between reading old posts here and You Tube, you can get just about any question answered, and then refuted again with exactly contradictory "it happened to me" stories Finding a safe place to shoot and throwing down for ammo costs is the big holdback for most people; dry firing can help a bit.

Seriously Do Not be afraid to ask "STUPID" questions. That is how one learns or you can just go out and screw it up and then ask how'd this happen and look like a complete Dingaling. Also you would not be the first to ask a stupid question on a forum such as this. Oh and welcome aboard.

There is no such thing as a stupid question. Ask away. Someone on here will have an answer - you maybe even get a few conflicting ones. Remember, we were all new at this at one time. Welcome.

Ask all the questions you want man. We may even be able to point you to a YouTube video that shows what we're describing.

And if someone mocks you for asking a "beginner" question in the "AR Basics" forum, they will likely get hit with the ban hammer. We were all there once.

Check out your local gun shop some of them offer classes on building and maintenance for AR.

well i just got the ar i ordered my daughter as a post surgery recovery gift. she wanted the colt le 6720 in muddy girl camo. arrived today and hope she feels good enough to shoot some rounds this weekend. was wondering if i could replace the front handgaurd with a picatanny version that comes in the muddy girl pattern? i'm sure someone with more computer knowledge than me could do some kind of search and find it, but i am a whole lot better farmer than i am a tech guy!

Of course! These are like Barbie dolls for guys (and in this case, girls, of course )

It's easier to use a tool (Google 'Delta Ring Wrench Removal Tool' or 'AR Hand Guard Removal Tool'), but before I knew these tools existed, I did it myself. You can get one for $9 w/free shipping on Amazon. It was ungodly difficult to manhandle off, but I got it without the tool. The rails pop on like a breeze since they screw together at one end.

Windham Weaponry and DMPS make a commercial AR in Muddy Girl, but my crappy work PC is so slow I can't get pics to load. I don't know if they have the Pic. part you're looking for, but maybe you could order it from them. Also found this link; again the pictures aren't loading for me.

If this works for you then good! If not, there's a hydro dipping place up in Winchester that did the stuff for my wife's mid-length. They did a fine job so I can recommend them with no reservations. I think I paid $60.00 for the forend piece.
