Was just thinking today about how much time I spend here and remembered how I heard about this website.....wen't shopping for my first AR...had tons of noob questions...guy at Harry's Army Navy in NJ said to check out this site and I would get tons of feedback....so I did...and a year and change later...I'm still here...like every day.

What turned you onto the site?

YEars ago, after my first purchase, I typed in AR15.com in my browser for the hell of it. A few weeks ago I stopped lurking and joined.

Ummmm, I think I was Googling AR15 or M4 and this site popped up. Lurked for a while and then paid for a membership late last year. I'm glad I did...it's a great resource.

Five years ago I typed in "Room Clearing Tactics" in Yahoo (I was a member on the old board)

A freind sent me a copy of the old newsletter.

Long about August/September 2001, I was interested in building an AR from a stripped lower, so I think I just typed in ar15.com, and BAM. I found the BEST site on the internet EVAR!!

I learned how to completely assemble an AR from a parts kit and a stripped lower.

The addiction grew from there...

This site was hot-linked to AR15.COM from HK91.com, and I've been here ever since.

I also like to invite all of the new folks to spend the extra $20 and become a bronze member, you will get the search function, which is worth it right there. Click on the link below to find out the particulars

About a year ago I started working at my new job.. and my boss pointed this place out to me. Sooner or later my interest in guns was revived and ..well.. the rest is history... along with my checking account.

I just did the bronze membership last night.. awaiting.. whatever is supposed to happen when you do that.

Ak-47.net, the old one. I noticed the people at arfkom were sanctimonious and cliqueish and tended to dogpile people mercilessly if they disagreed with you, but they were a lot higher class and smarter than most of the people at AK-47.net.

It's been a few years, but I think I learned about ar15.com from a friend.

I thought the first rule of ARFCOM was that we can't talk about hearing about ARFCOM.

Through my truck.

"What", you say? In 2001 I purchased an 02 Dakota Quad Cab and wanted to spiff the performance up a bit. Found a website (dodgedakotas.com) that our very own Hawkeye was part of. I read a couple of threads he'd been active in (I think the "Gun Control" thread is still going strong there, years later) and he'd mentioned that he was "into" ARs. At that time I had been looking into having a CMP legal AR built up and I stopped by here around November of 02.

So if I haven't said it before and you're reading this Hawk, Thanks.

Wondered if there was a site called AR15.com, so I typed it in the address bar,
Link Posted: 9/14/2004 1:26:16 PM EDT
Googled AR15 and it popped up.

Friend at my former place of employment. I don't remember what started the conversation - I only had a G3 (with civilian receiver) at the time so I'm not sure what guided us to AR-15s. I don't know what his user name is so I e-mailed him to find out.

I bought an AR then decided I needed to learn more about them. Found this site shortly after googling "AR15"

That's how I found this place too. IIRC, there some very knowledgable people on the AR15-L.
Link Posted: 9/14/2004 2:20:09 PM EDT
I came across it while online researching for an AR15 purchase. I spent $20 + tax for a USA mag when I bought the gun. After I tried to use it and found out it was junk I came back here to research mags. I really started using it to buy NIW USGI mags from the EE. $20 to $25 each/shipped is what I paid. I wish I didn't buy so many.
