I have always had a certain fondness for firearms. Growing up I have many fond memories that involved firearms. I can't count the memories I created with my father, and my grandfather while on weekend hunting trips together. I have never understood the concept of trying to solve the gun problem by removing them from people. Regardless, the current gun laws are what they are, and we all have to go with the flow. I often wonder how I was responsible enough to carry weapon onto a plane with ammunition in order to serve my country in the middle east, but I am not trusted enough to own the same type of weapon as an American citizen. Living in California means that I have to adhere to some of the strictest gun laws in the country, and it also means that I am legally allowed to possess a fully automatic rifle. This ultimately led me in the direction of trying to create a rifle that I could fire at a rapid rate regardless of the law. I knew that my rifle of choice was going to be an AR15. Maybe it is the veteran in me, or just the fact that it is such a beautiful weapon, but I have always had a fondness for the M16. I cannot obviously own a M16 legally, so the AR15 is the next best option. I found this page http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AR_15 on Wikipedia I found interesting. It covers almost anything one could want to know about the AR15. As I was browsing the internet I came across an object that seemed to cause a significant amount of controversy a few years ago. This little object is called a bullet button. Believe it or not I have never heard of this thing before I stumbled upon it in an article on the internet a few months ago. It is a button that allows for amazingly quick reloading times. I was amazed at how quickly some people can change an empty clip out with one of these bullet buttons. I found a number of videos which was all it took to sell me on the idea. I am curious about your experiences with a bullet button. Are they worth all of the hype and investment, or does someone have other suggestions I should consider? I am fairly new to rifles and shooting for sport. I grew up around hunters and only have experience with rifles in that capacity and in the military. I have recently begun to collect weapons and shoot for sport and fun. I am curious what other methods, devices, or tips you folks may have to improve my reload and shooting time.
