Heya Fellas, Im in the coast guard, and just moved to San Diego from New Hampshire. I have allways been interested in owning a rifle, and my motivation to own has been accelerated by the regime change in washington. I would like to own an AR-15, and I plan on assembling my own (figure it's the best way to get to know my rifle). I would appreciate any advice you could give me... ie. This is my first firearm, am i getting ahead of myself? if not... Is it possible to own an AR-15 in Cali? Where should i start? My Budget = $1200, what should i put the most money into?
