    Hello everyone. I found this site while surfing and decided to join after browsing through here. There is lots of info to learn and enjoy. I like to hunt and fish and I am a life member of the NRA. I fully support the Constitution, especially the 2nd Amendment. I have recently discovered the AR15. I am not a gun nut---no wait---I am a gun nut. At least my wife says so. I look forward to being a member of this great group of people.

    I have an Olympic Arms AR that i bought about 10 years ago before i knew anything about them. i just starting shooting it last couple of months. After doing a lot of reading on all the AR15 websites i am going to purchase either a Colt LE 6920 or a BCM 16" Mid Mod 2. I am wanting to buy a case of ammo and do a lot of shooting.. Hope your build goes good---just get out and shoot!!!

    We use Green Tip M855 steel core surplus and handloads for the most part in our 5.56 rifles and carbines. It has better penetration factors on zombies than 55 grain and has proven to be more accurate in our guns (Mini 14s and AR15s, soon to add an HK93 type)
