New Member. Been 'Lurking' for awhile.
Picked up my 1st AR today.
Bushmaster A2 20" HBAR.
Went at lunch, did all the freakin paper work - New 4473!!??$$$ - I guess they're looking for "Terorist's"!! w/ the paperwork!!! and then the dealer called in for the 'NICS' and the Freakin system was down!!!
So much for the "INSTANT CHECK SYSTEM"
Anyway, he got through finally and I picked it up after work.
No prior experience w/ AR's. Have downloaded and read/studied manuals.
Have 200 rds of Rem 55 GR Power-Lokt HP and picked up 100 rds of UMC 55 GR FMJ at WallyWorld today for $3.97/box of 20.
Plan on shooting tomorrow or this weekend using the standard 25M site in and go from there.
Will order some USGI 20/30rd mags and want to order some 3131A from Ammonman.
Any suggestions/comments/advice appreciated.
Just wanted to 'Check In' and say Hello.
I've already picked up a lot of good info here.
OBTW I've been shooting/hunting for 40+ yrs. - rifle/shotgun/pistol/revolver/bow, but my only semiauto rifle experience is w/ a Norinco SKS I picked up last summer. I REALLY LIKE that weapon and it lead to the decision to go for the AR.
Gotta go do chores at the barn. I'll check back later.
Thanks Again,
Larry

Welcome aboard Larry....

I also have a SKS ( amongst others ) and they are great guns for the money.


Stick around you are going to love it here.

Congrats. First suggestion - stop buying ammo by the box. You'll soon realize the only way to keep that thing fed is to buy it by the case.

I will agree, you need to start buying by the case, maybe even the half case if money is tight .

Welcome to THE site!
Sounds like you've got it figured out - but as others have said, buy by the case if you can.

Welcome!

As stated above - by the case is the only way to fly.

Q3131A - good choice.
