Well, I have some developing news since I posted my introduction. The Fed's have locked me up. Lol, just kidding.
As you may be aware I had decided to become a member of the Black Rifle Club. For those that weren't aware, well, you are now! So after much research and a lot of great advice I settled on what I wanted and went to the local shop to get it. Only to be told that they could not get the rifles I wanted. This was mainly due to the overwhelming demand for AR rifles, but also due to the fact that they were not a direct manufacturers dealer for the rifles I wanted.
So I surfed the internet and managed to snag this little beauty on an auction site (no, it wasn't SexyPhillippinomailorderBrides.com),
A Stag AR15 stripped lower in 5.56 caliber. Isn't she beautiful?
Now all I need to do is assemble her over the winter so she will be ready for the spring dance. I'm thinking of going with this look,
Haha, just kidding.
This is the look I'm going for,
Hahaha, got you again.
Seriously though, I still have a good amount of research to do before I decide on what to do. Probably something simple and basic at first.
Now as you read this you may be asking yourself, but dog2000tj, you mentioned getting "the rifles I wanted"? So what became of my second rifle?
Well, a wise man once told me - "given what you want to do, order one AR-15 in .223/5.56 variant and order an AR-10 in .308 with a 20" heavy barrel." Now at the time I thought, "this guy is crazy, he probably lives in the sticks of the great northwest." But the more I thought about it the more I felt compelled to go over to the dark side. So I scoured the internet for weeks on end, and for a while there I thought all was lost. But alas, through sheer determination, my awesome manliness and some major obsessive compulsive browsing I came across this,
A DPMS LR-308B, 18" heavy barrel. I pulled the trigger, whipped out the plastic and closed the deal. She is now en route and due here before the new year.
The moral of this story? I have no idea, your guess is as good as mine, all I know is that I like sexy Phillippino women and that I am going to have a Merry Fu#*%ng Christmas.
So to all you kids in FirearmsTalk.com land - happy holiday's, merry Christmas and have a safe and happy new year. Oh, and Dillinger, that's 2 rounds on me.
