I finally have her![:D] I got my first AR-15 2 days ago. Thanks to the help from the fine people here I waited the extra four days (it killed me) and got the Bushmaster 16" A3 I had ordered insteatd of the replacement offer. It is awesome! Now I just can't wait to shoot it. Can I now be "officially" part of the club now? [:o] Anyway, just wanted to brag about my new toy!

OK first rule: Sleeping with rifle NEXT to the bed is OK, in the bed is NOT.

Oh come on, nothing like the feel of cold steel on a hot night![;)] The wife somehow disagrees though, I think she might be jealous. Oh well, I am just glad to have her (the gun that is)!

In addition to the rifle you will need the following: 1.) At least 1000 rounds of ammo 2.) No less than 50 USGI mags 3.) Appoximately $200 worth of cleaning equipment 4.) Lots of time [:D]

Steyr I have to disagree with You about sleeping with the weapon in bed. Not that do it on a regular basis. I had a bad experience once while I was the Army once. For some reason that I can't remember now we had set up a position over watching a road on a steep slope. I had put out my poncho to sleep on and had fallen asleep with my M60 next to me. I remember waking up a couple of hours later and reaching for my pig. My weapon was not next to me [:O]. What had happened was that I had slid down the slope about 8 feet on my poncho liner. You just don't loose your weapon in the Army its a very bad thing. After that I had always wrapped the sling around me in certain ways to avoid such incidences in the future. Matthew, I would say don't feel ashamed to tuck you weapon in next to you in bed. If you start painting your furniture on weapon to match your sheets then there is a problem and seek therapy. Oh, I would probably buy a spare upper and keep it virginal except for test firing a couple hundred rounds for hard times. Practice with one and save another. No Slack!

Two DIFFERENT set of rules. One for in the field and the other for in the home. You do things alot different in the field.
