Wow...............^^^

If you don't want it sell it to someone that does

I sold an AR at the show in Wichita yesterday. I bought a RRA last year that I really like and didn't need this one. I have an LR208 too, so I have one for each hand, that should be enough.
I gave mine to a dealer to sell and he took a cut, saved me from having to carry it around all afternoon and anwer questions. I got more for it than I had in it, so I was satisified.

Now that was a breath of fresh air. It's nice to see a realistic post about the probable outcome of a handgun fight. Most people don't understand that when you are moving, your target is moving, and adrenalin is slamming through your bloodstream like a runaway freight train, the odds are very good that you will miss. Sort of shoots the old over-penetration concern right in the hindquarters.

I think it might be a good time unless it is the only AR you have!
May never be able to get anotherone like it if they alter the weapons as they want to do?
Not too many stores have them left on the shelf at this time. And new orders are 8 months to a year out! And may be effected by the possible changes.
