I'm expecting my first AR to arrive next week. Since this is my first AR, I'm sure that there are quite a few things that I will need that I don't yet know that I need. I'm also sure that there a quite a few things that I think I need that I really don't.

So, if I were to drop some hints to some folks who might be inclined to buy me Christmas presents, besides ammo and extra magazines, what hints would those be?

www.talonarms.com/talonarms/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=119&products_id=170

I'm buyind and configuring this as a bugout/shtf, KISS unit, but it will most likely only ever be used for plinking. Lights, optics, and other relatively pricey things will have to wait, but I will want to get some of the basic/general stuff right away

Is there a prefered cleaning kit, soft case, hard case, sling, lula, cheekpiece.
What do you think I need that I haven't even thought about yet?
What looks good in the catalogs, but is crap in the field.

What are you going to use your AR for?

LULA

Otis Cleaning Kit

Sling? Stick with a USGI carry strap until you've had a chance to try a few others out.

If this rifle is for duty/personal defense then you'll need a light & some kind of mount. Either a Surefire G2 or Innova T3 are good for starters.

For a soft case (40") take a look at this.

Elite Tactical

I got one recently and it is a heck of a value.

Oslo, that looks like an excellent deal. I can't tell from the photos - are the exterior pouches held on by velcro only or do they also snap or strap on?

No velcro, the pouches strap on; the straps have snaps. This thing is heavy duty all the way. Besides the removable pouches there is a large zippered side compartment.

I have several soft cases, including some high end (costly) brands and this is the best deal I have seen.
