...find out about AR15.com? I found it when I was looking to buy my first AR. I think I searched on Google and came across it that way. Any newbies find out about it from [i]Shotgun News[/i]?

I forget how I found ar15.com. I know I came here in the summer of 2001 and it seemed MUCH slower then. I read all of the posts in a few weeks and new posts did not come nearly as fast as they do today.

Got my first AR a Colt 6520 and want to know more about it. Do a search on the Lycos.com and voila. I am home.

Search engine around 97-98 looking for Ar info best thing Ive ever found.[:D] P.S. I lurked for a long time.

Came across it the same as most of you, was researching all I could on the AR-15 before my first AR purchase. Google search pulled AR15.com - lurked for awhile, then joined. Still debating on the 60 buck member fee tho.......maybe by the end of the year.

I was actually just messing around and typed in ar15.com and WOW! it worked medcop

Search results yielded this wonderful site. I lurked for a few months until I got up enough nerve to register and now, now I'm a full blown team member! Got keys to the secret tree fort and everything.

I was on the SHOOTERS.COM boards one night ([i]boring as hell by the way![/i]), when I decided to try punching in www.ar15.com... I've been universally hated ever since!

I came across AR15.com in the early spring of 2001, while compiling a list of firearms related bookmarks. I had owned seven AR15's at various times back in my heavy gun trading days in the early and late 80's, But had put off buying anouther, because some more pressing monitary need always came up. I had handguns and shotguns, just never seemed to get back around to the battle rifle thing. To be real honest, I was just more intrested in buying new computer stuff, A shiney new Monitor or a Printer that had a fax/scanner, than I was in laying out a grand on a rifle built the way I wanted. Then on Sept 11 2001, Osama Bin Laden made two decisions for me. 1.) I was about to invest in a new Assault Rifle, ASAP, Hopefully I had not waited until to late. 2.) I was about to start spending a whole lot of time at that AR15.com website I had seen back in the spring. I briefly considered buying a AK47 clone (for about ten seconds.) But in the end decided that, If things go really wrong (Anthax Attacks are things going pretty wrong.) there is just no substitute for owning you countries battle rifle. I had owned enough AR15's that I was more than aware of their quirks, hiccups, hangups, and finnicky habits. In short I knew I could make one run. I found AR15.com to be even more help than I had at first thought, I soon had huge amounts of user data on almost all of the Parts gun outfits. information on big changes in the AR15 rifle system, that had come along in just the last couple of years and of course, AR15.com introduced me to Norala Tactical, Who I eventualy bought the great majority of my Rock River FAR15 mid-length's assemblies from and to Sable Co, who'm I have not done business with yet, but plan to, if the new Trijicon TriPower sites ever come out. I found that I enjoyed AR15.coms boards quite a bit as well, While one does have to suffer thru the occasional Walter Mitty or 16 year old poser, these boards are worth it, because they are also the home of some of the finest and most knowledgeable gunners in this country or the world for that matter. Anyway, thats how I found AR15.com

I invented it! oops just having a nightmare thought I was AL GORE for a second. I wont be able to sleep for a week now. China owns AL Gore.

I did a search to find out more about the new rifle I'd just bought, a Crapon-15, and found AR15.com. Boy did I do that in the wrong order! It was tough to drop a grand on a cool looking piece of equip and then come here and find it's a POS. But it was the truth, live and learn. And now I practically live here.

Purchased a Varminter on the advice of my gun dealer, who I trust immensely, wanted to find out about this "barrel break in" thing, used the search engine, lo and behold I'm surrounded by lunatics...and feel quite at home.

Got bored sitting at work in March of 2000. Poof, here I am (minus several hundred posts on the old AR15.com board, and a few months worth of registration)

They told me that they needed the presence of an intermediary here.

A fellow I used to work with told me about AR15.com. Glad he did!!!

Years back, I pretty much found my way here through a listserv - email news group... I think it was around 1997 or 1998. I lurked a lot back then... a long time ago. Eric/Tyler
