Default Bushmaster

Greetings gentlemen,
I bought my AR back in 2000. It's a Bushmaster with a heavy M-4 carbine barrel. I paid just under $1000.00 for it stock, with no bells or whistles. I put an Aimpoint red-dot and a Delta cheek-rest on it, for an additional $500.00 or so. Real Aimpoint's are not cheap. I have never screwed around with triggers, tuning, or switching out lowers or anything like that. My rifle shoots like a dream. It is absolutely sweet. I keep it real clean and it is super accurate. I feel no need to modify it in any way. It does everything I need it to do and I am perfectly happy with it. Some ammo shoots better than others, of course, that goes without saying. However, I don't sit around and think about how I can make it better. That is all. I love my AR, it's simple, clean and deadly. That's all I need.

Aaron

Being new to this site I just wanted to say it is extremely informative. I just purchased an AR-M4 from RRA and can't wait for the Weather to clear so I can shoot it. Now I know why folks get excited with this Rifle, now I have to dress it up a tad. JD Kudos great site.

I appreciate the shout out there rappini but the site isn't mine and it's the great core group of folks we have here that make the place what it is.

The same type of stuff I put up here could be just as easily ignored on another forum if it wasn't filled with a lot of knowledgable and industry types who are willing to share.

I hear what you're saying but the only thing is: gold is a terrible investment if things really get bad. Who's gonna care about gold if guns, ammo, food, batteries, shelter and useful barter items are now in demand. Could be real smart to have useful things in your possession. Right now gold is valuable but in the right climate gold could become worthless because it doesn't do anything, it just has an artificial value placed on it.

And of course going with the wise investor's creed, "buy low, sell high", well you don't want to buy gold today unless you're convinced it hasn't peaked.

Anyway if you can afford it, buying a quality gun once in a while and stocking up on ammo isn't a bad idea.

@sixor12...Guns are a terrible investment??...a scam??? You have to secure them and maintain them?? If you are not into it, then go collect stamps or something. I have "invested" in firearms for half of my life, and I LOVE all my wonderful weapons. They are valuable and over time have increased in value. Securing and maintaining my guns is very enjoyable to me. I am proud of my collection. No one has taken my money because of my ignorance either. If you don't know what you are purchasing...then don't buy it. All my gear clean and functional and extremely valuable to me.

Quentin,

Bottom line if the SHTF which would you and I rather have! Gold or Guns and Ammo! Stupid Question! GUNS!!!!!! & AMMO! Gold will not be worth a D----,
Offer the guy barter for a guns, ammo or a gold and see which one wins.
For anyone who doubts that. I purchased a certain weapon in 1986 for $1100.00. I have been offered $3500.00 for it twice this year. $2400.00 profit is a pretty D--- good interest rate!
And as Dillinger advised we are here to help the new guys any way we can!

Lemme know if you have any more off topic bickering in this thread. Just use the 'report bad post'.
