The best part about AR-15's is that you can build it any way you like. 8-)


That is a very nice rifle you've got there. Very impressive looking all kitted out like that.

A buddy of mine used to own a gun store in Franklin, NJ and I went in one day to visit him. He whipped out an AR15 and tried to sell it to me. I was however, only 19 at the time and thought to myself, "I have no use for it." and turned him down. He was asking $500 for it, "friend price". Shortly thereafter, he got robbed, bunch of weapons went missing, two pizza delivery guys were shot dead and he was run out of town.

I've been kicking myself ever since, should've bought the rifle because now I'll never be able to buy one.

All of you would be sick if you ever saw the weapons that I used to have to throw into an iron ladle when Allegheny Country would clean out there evidence lockers, not to mention all of the dope. They would normally have at least two stake bed trucks with barrels full. I always thought that if they would resell the weapons to responsible buyers they could lower the tax rate.

I like 'em all.

I have several variations of the AR15, long barrel varmint models, as well as short with lots of lasers, lights etc.. I have AR's chambered in 6mmBenchrest, as well as the normal '223 or 5.56.
I have the AR10, in standard .308/7.62. it's an Armalite.. nice shooter.
And I have the big brother of them all, the .50 BMG version.. it's a beast.

I also love the Remington 700, I do my own gunsmithing on all my rifles, I really like the action. It is the bolt action rifle like the AR: you can buy just
about anything for a Remington 700.

I also am into benchrest accuracy: I have several LV and HV rifles, in 6PPC and 6BR, as well as a few antiques in .222.

Pistols? 1911's, several wheel guns, several antiques. pistol versions of the AR, and even a Remington .221 Fireball, bolt action pistol.

Shotguns?? lots of short un's leaning in corners and agains door jambs. I like the mossberg 500, the shotgun AR. and I love the other pump actions. the noise along will stop an argument, and stop a fistfight.

Lots of various carry guns.. lately I've been carrying a Kahr .45. a nice combination of stopping power and still small enough to carry.

I really love my firearms.. LOL

I've been looking for a Marlin 336 1973 Octagon in mint or un-fired condition. They only produced this model in 1973, which is the year I was born. If anyone has one, or a lead to where one might be, give me a shout!
