Look what my wife let me have for our 25th. A rock river arms LAR-8. I put a nikon p-223 scope and a bipod on it. I got to shoot it for the first time the other day and I didn't do too bad, it being my first time to shoot and my first AR platform. I know some would think I went to big for my first, but what the heck. I like to go big or go home, know what I mean? Anyhoo, I think I made the right choice. I will use for deer hunting mainly. So what do you think? Do I have an awsome wife or what? Also, here is my hunting blind I got from my daughter, it was in here back yard and she didn't want it, so I took it and fixed it up. My grand kids are going to help me paint it some form of camo.
