recently we have been asked this question probly a dozen times or so. my suggestion is go back through all the post in the AR section. if you still have questions that arent anwered there or that you dont quite understand, feel free to ask... now with that said, building an AR will be cheaper and you will know your rifle better. but if you want to just buy and pull the trigger. you can find basic AR's for 700 to 900 for good quality such as stag, RRA dpms, s&W
I have been a silent witness
to all of America's finest hours.
But my finest hour comes
when I am torn into strips and used as bandages
for my wounded comrades on the battlefield,
When I fly at half-mast to honor my soldiers,
Or when I lie in the trembling arms
of a grieving mother
at the graveside of her fallen son.
