Default Finally broke it in!

I finally got an opportunity to fire my freshly built AR-15 this Saturday! Darn thing shoots like a dream! I went with the advice of some others on this forum, and picked up a super cheap Barska red-dot scope until I can save some cash up for real optics, and I'm glad I did. Went through 100 rounds, with only one fail to fire (light strike on the primer) that I'm quite sure was my fault (first round from a new mag, I didn't "grip and rip" or use the forward assist, I don't think it was all the way chambered). I even snapped the first prairie dog of the season with it!

However, it is painfully obvious that the real limiting factor to the gun's performance was the scope, so hopefully I can invest soon...

Congratulations and keep shooting. For your next assignment we want ot see a proper range report - pics of the rifle and targets.


Some sexy lingerie clad models might not be a bad idea either

I'll get right on it! The shooting, I mean. My wife probably wouldn't be too thrilled about bikini clad models... though that would be awesome...

Good news! It's always a relief for the first range test to go well. Now you can have some fun...

Congrats!! It's all downhill from here on.

It will start to go uphill again when you start pricing some good optics and accessories for it...then it will be all downhill again

Outstanding!! I'm not sure about dressing your AR in lingerie, although they do look good in black as does my wife.

Ahhhhh, nothing better than that new AR smell.......

With all the comments, you now HAVE to put some lingerie on the AR and take a picture - That would be serious gun porn.
