... because the liberals say you shouldn’t own one? I DID! Over a year ago and I still haven’t taken it out of the box to shoot it. An expensive $800 protest gift. In fact, I am going to a gun store this week and purchase an additional 3 or 4 high capacity magazines this week because Joe Biden and his cohorts say I shouldn't have any. As Joe Biden said. BINGO!

I built me a 100% legal AR “pistol” (really and SBR) using an 80% lower that I milled out and has a foldable stock and a 60 round drum. The main reason I built this gun is so I can say I have a gun I built myself, that has no serial number, bought everything online, and can fit in a small child’s backpack. Also so I can show people videos of my 5 year old shooting. I bought my first house at the rock bottom of the housing market but still say this gun is the best investment of my life.

where in the world are you finding ammo? bullets to load for my 22 250, also a 224, are getting scarce

I didn't buy it just because liberals said I shouldn't have one.

I enjoy building them and shooting them.

but I may have bought more because I like them and I can see they may not always be available.

next one I want to do is a 308 AR-10 then I am going to need an AR-9 that feeds from glock mags as a range toy.

you should shoot yours , you may find it more fun than you thought.

I bought a stripped lower shortly before the 2016 election because I was sure Clinton was going to win. It took me a year or so to gather the pieces, and 15 minutes to assemble once I had everything.

I hate em. Heavy, bulky and extremely loud. Although extremely accurate in most situations, it does no good if it's in the hands of an idiot who just knows he has 30 rounds to just send down that tube in a few seconds. If you're gonna get one for the defense element, then at least learn the weapon well and actually train with it to get the most benefits from it. I've stood on the line for years with people who can't get 10% of that mag on paper even at close range because they're too caught up in that "bang, bang, bang" quick mentality.

Any gun that is in the hand of idiots will have the same out come. I buy all quality parts when I put them together so they all shoot good. I have built some very light weight AR's. And if you run a 5 rd mag it makes the rifle pretty light weight.

Yep, depends on how ya build em. First one I put together I got a bull barrel for it. It was just a 16", but I learned my lesson. Think I've done 6 or 7 more, no more bull barrels for me. I've got 1 more lower, gonna start ordering parts tomorrow for it. I built my first one when Obama was in office, but it wasn't because of that. I was just interested in putting one together, but parts were pretty expensive when you could find them. 1lessdog, you did a nice job! I like it

Have an AR15 and a 10. Keep the 10 in the truck most of the time. Great for hogs or other undesirables.

I bought a 300rd box of fmj .233 the other day at rural king. They had another box of the same and maybe a half dozen 20rd boxes of 77gr I think they were boat tailed soft points.

I secured one not because liberals say I shouldn’t but because there is a good chance I will be able to utilize ammo taken off the opposition.

Bought one in 2008 sold it for twice as much in 2012.
Never even unwrapped it.

Never liked the things to begin with
