As I've said before I am seriously bored today. So I'm sitting here thinking "How many people on this board actually own an AR?"

So what have you got or plan to get?

Myself, I have an Armalite M15A4c in green furniture with an ATN Ultra site, Harris "H" bipod, super sling, and a few Thermold Mags.

Just checking.

I'll save my vote until you add, "Yes, many."

Guns are bad. I only own a rubber suction dart gun, and I keep a trigger lock on it.

I have a preban Colt and a postban Bushmaster.

Yep, and it's purty.

I hava postban 20" Bushy A2 and RRA flattop M4.

Pre-ban Oly HBAR (and when I say pre-ban, I mean [b]pre[/b]-ban, as in pre-G.W. Bush, Sr.-ban.) It shoots well but has a kinda gritty trigger that I'll get around to smoothing out or replacing one of these days.

Yep, a bushmaster shorty AK. Looking to trade the AK break upper for a 20" V Match though. Then get a FAL, then a revolver, then a .45, then a .22 pistol, then a .50, then an AK-47, then a  ... oops, sorry.

What's an AR15?  It's a GUN?????

You'll shoot your eye out!
Link Posted: 5/27/2002 3:27:21 PM EDT
Don't have one yet, since they're expensive and I don't have much money. I spent most of the money I could spare to get my first pistol, which it more likely to be handy should I need to defend myself. I'll probably get one when I get out of college and get a real job.

NO WAY!!! Those things are so dangerous and should only be used for killing those modern flying assault squirels! oh, and fire ants (that's why they make full auto).

Looks like you've got a nasty addiction going there.  How bout I help take a few of those off your hands.  Consider it "therapy". [:D]

I was "FORCED" to buy one before the ban of 1999. Best thing the state EVER did for me.Jesse Ventura for President.

How about this for an AR addiction.

1 AR180
1 Carbon 15
1 Bushy M4
1 Oly Shorty
1 SOCOM lower the Bushy varminter 24" upper
1 RRA lower with an Oly 9mm upper
2 RRA lowers with Colt 20" HBAR units

Eight is not enough!

I've got a closet full of the only REAL AR out there, the Armscorp .22. They are made in Asia and their quality is second to none!
Link Posted: 5/27/2002 7:26:12 PM EDT
Hey Paul....you've got some cool guns.Can you come out and play?
Link Posted: 5/27/2002 7:33:52 PM EDT
I just got my first one...a Bushmaster X15 E2S Camo.  I'm afraid that it will not be my only one though.  These things are addictive!!!

Hopefully, I can get in on the LEGP before its too late!!!

it should be noted, the "guns are dangerous" one dosne nessesarily mean that a person dont own one

How's this for the lead paragraph in the newspaper:

"Today, police raided the home of Paul the Moderator and found an arsenal of assault weapons and thousands of rounds of ammunition."

Thank you Paul for enjoying your hobby and your passion and sharing it with us. While my collection is not quite as extensive as yours, I do admire your brash display.

When I bought my AR, I remember thinking "I'd better get this while I can!"  I'm glad I did.  That was 1991.  My HK was a similar story, but unfortunately, I was too late for the 1989 human rights violation (import ban).  Oh well, I like my SR9 too.
Link Posted: 5/27/2002 8:39:30 PM EDT
AR-? ?
Link Posted: 5/27/2002 8:46:36 PM EDT
nope I don't own any...

 I don't want to be responsible for contributing to another senseless death that is caused by military style firearms. They are used solely to kill children and innocent criminals.

Why would any sensible person want to own such an evil thing?
Didn't you people learn anything from MMM?

Okay, Paul, how many of those are currently in your immediate possession and in fully assembled and operable condition?

Spare parts kits with no lower receivers don't count. [;)]

No, but I used to and had to get rid of it because I needed the money. Will get one when I have money to buy one with.
Link Posted: 5/28/2002 8:46:31 AM EDT
Just one, atm, a Bushy DCM. Thinking about buying another upper for casual shooting. That DCM upper is HEAVY.

My ARs:
1) Bushmaster 20" HBAR A3
2) Bushmaster 14.5" Carbine w/AK Brake
3) Preban Eagle Arms 16"

What?  Guns?

All this time I have been wondering what the big deal is on preban, postban, legality, ballistics, barrel length, and cleaning techniques.  

I've also wondered how anyone could have one AR-15 since they come in pairs everywhere that I have seen.

Now it is all clear to me.  You see, I have been posting this whole time thinking that AR15.com was a site dedicated to the AR-15 speakers from Acoustic Research.

I would never own a gun.  They turn the average citizen into a war mongering survivalists and murdering criminals.  They are evil incarnate and all gun owners must be stopped!!!

That is funny about the acoustic research ar-15's.  I had that pic of the ar-15's as my sig pic for a couple days, but figured nobody would get it.  At least you would have.

Yeah. I'm going to have to sell it. Why? I need the money to fix my truck.
Edited to say that I am holding off advertising it as long as possible, trying to figure some other way to get the bucks.
Link Posted: 5/29/2002 7:01:51 AM EDT

I hope that you get the finances you need and hang onto your AR.

Thanks. I appreciate the thought. If I have to sell the AR to fix the truck, I will sell the truck and get a new AR. At least that's how it's working in my head.[:|][:\]
