    Welcome to the forum from California! Lots of info available here and not so much attitude as many of those other, suckier forums. The AR your first gun or have you got others?

    You don't have an assault rifle so don't use that term for a semiauto rifle! Yes, definitely read the stickies, starting with Agent Tikki's Primer.

    You have acquired a Sport Utility Rifle. ;)

    It is a prelude to Black Rifle Disease.

    Welcome to the FTF community.

    Don't trust someone to make all the right decisions for you, SPL. Odds are you won't be happy with it in six months.

    Read and understand the Primer. once you know what you want in an AR, you take steering wheel before they screw you up. Very quickly you can know more than "that guy".

    Quentin makes a good point. I bought my first, it was just a plain jane basic AR. Within 3 months I was already putting a second together. And now i'm itching to modify it.

    Welcome to the forum though. Just a bit of advice. We don't own assault rifles, the military does. There is no such thing as an assault weapon, it's a politically made up term. And we feed our toys with magazines. Clips are only used by rappers.
