Posted in thread: help and guidance on my first AR purchase on 07-01-2015 at 11:53 AM
I have not seen many AR's that have a lot of play between the upper and lower. The DPMS that I
got recently (.308) and my friend's (5.56mm) are very tight, you almost need a plastic punch to

Posted in thread: 1911, or AR-15. Which one would you get first? on 06-29-2015 at 06:49 PM
For $1200 you could get both. I have a Kimber (CDP) and love it, but also have a RIA (Rock
Island) 1911. It was a bit under $600 and came with two barrels, 9mm and .22 TCM. The TCM is a
