Default Hello, new member here

Hi everybody,

Been scoping out a bunch of different forums that talk about the AR15 and this seems like one of the most civilized forums out there. Nice to see one that isn't all snobby about if you dont have a Colt, Noveske or LMT you have a second class AR.

I was lucky and managed to pick my first AR up in Sept.

I went to a local gun shop with a friend who was looking for a Bushmaster AR and they didn't have any, but they did have a complete Stag Model 15 for 849.00. He really wanted a Bushmaster so I started thinking about the Stag for myself. I have always wanted a AR15 and it seemed like a decent price to me so it followed me him.

I'm not new to guns, in fact I have just been more a pistol guy. I do have a Beretta CX4 Storm and love shooting it.

I just feel lucky that I got into the AR platform before the frenzy with EBR's and feel sorry for all those that arent able to get one or will have to wait 6 months.

Anyway, enough rambling by me (I have a problem doing that sometimes) Hope to join in and talk to everybody a lot.

Welcome to the forum. There are a bunch of nice people here that are always eager to help everyone with their questions,and a few that do have their own opinions,but it would be pretty boring if everybody agreed on everything. I'm sure you enjoy your Stag, AR's are alot of fun to shoot. THB.

Welcome to the Forum - We do our best to try to dispel some of those myths you are talking about. The name on the side of your weapon isn't going to change how useful it can be used when properly owned and maintained.
