Was planning on getting into shooting as a hobby (slowly) but the CT tragedy moved the timeline up dramatically
In hoping to get ahead of any AR or large cap mag bans (January was scary), I now have 3 ARs and moving onto pistols
Just completed the NRA basic pistol course and have registered for the NRA reloading class

Btw, great forum!

Have wanted an AR for years now but never had the extra money layin around.  In December I realized my chances might be getting slim so decided to just buy the lower for one since that was all i could afford. That's when I discovered the whole AR culture and have been on this forum ever since. Thanks to this forum I now have 10 receivers!

My name is William
I live in Lyons IL
I am currently a college student
I am completely new to the internet firearm world and it will take me some time getting used to things, I am 19 but have been shooting since I was young, I got into this lifestyle because as a kid my pops was a trucker and the little time we had, we would head to the range and shoot some 45s and since then I have moved on to bigger things like my AR that I built the day I turned 18. Looking forward to spending a lot of time on ar15.com as it seems its easier to shoot my mouth of on the internet then shoot my guns, a lot cheaper too.

Been into guns forever, mostly handguns. Current projects:
