    Purchased my first AR - Ruger SR556.
    I have only used one once or twice before.
    I really enjoyed the one I got - The trigger pull was very nice and it handled very nicely. Felt like a glove in my hands. My wife even enjoyed that it was fairly light and little to no recoil.

    While I sighted it in for the Back up Iron Sights - I am waiting for the scopes I ordered for the gun.

    This looks like a fun gun.
    Now I understand why people have these things

    Just rememebre what Honey bucket is - guess I would not be posting any photo's there

    Piggy back system - I ordered a Leopold MArk AR for the longer shots and then I am setting a BUrris Fast Fire? to the side for the shorter range stuff. Basicaly at close quarters - turn the gun slightly and use the Burris - but for longer shots - use the scope.
    Should work good for items like Practical rifle and other competitions/. I used someone elses one day and liked the set up
