Ar-15

So I had my first experience with an AR this weekend, damn that gun is cool. No recoil at all, plus a red appiture sight. I am definitly considering one of these. Whats everyone else's thoughts on them?

Wanna see my care face?

I like them overall. Fun to take to the range, an option for home defense, hunting, and modifications are endless.

haha, this has to be one of the most generic threads I've seen in a long time.

Just about everyone on the board has one. they are the ultimate weapon. They can be any size, any caliber, any accuracy, and most importantly they can be all of these things at the same time with removable uppers. They are not just another gun - they are there own hobby in itself... everyone should own one.

Only thing i think sucks is fucking ammo is expensive. I did a brake job on a truck for a .22 conversion POS and it actually works fairly good. Nothing like a .223 tho.

haha man I don't know what other guns you have but .223 ammo is the cheapest of all ammos I shoot. 100 rounds of federal .223 for 20-30 dollars? How is that expensive? 20 rounds of the dirtiest shittiest .308 is 10 dollars.

I was hooked on the AR the first time I got to shoot one as well. I did my homework and looked around for quite a while before buying mine last week. The shitty part is that I had damn near all of last week off and I fucked around and didn't get to the range before the rain started last Sunday. Now I've got to wait until Saturday since the only rifle range around where I live has gone to their winter hours and closes at 5:00 pm right now.

If $0.50 a round is too expensive, then don't own a gun at all, buy a knife or a rock or count on the government to protect you.

The AR15 is its own culture.

I have several (5 assembled and 8 bare lowers) and tons of ammo to feed them with.

Time to start the hobby yourself. Buy a lower receiver and kit. Build the thing yourself and you will have a fonder appreciation for it and a better understanding of the mechanics.

You should have kept the the gun as a .223 and not bought the 22 LR conversion.

For the price of the conversion, you could have bought a Ruger 10/22 and modified the hell out of it.

I like my AR, I prefer .308 Win though

i like ar's but the bigger receivers (ar10) in 308 are simply too big
they really seem to take away a lot of what is so handy / light about ar's
never shot one though in 308
I would like a 6.8 spc one, but im just not down with ammo not widely used in other guns
i like to shoot cheap, so the ammo needs to be widely available.
