For most of my life, my timing gas sucked! I'm usually a day late and a dollar short. But I decided to listen to the little voice inside my head that kept saying "If you ever want to get a Colt AR, you better do it quick!". So last month on December 12th after being tempted to buy a Colt at a couple of Local Wal-Marts, I went to my LGS and put a LE6920MP-B on layaway. It was about $60.00 bucks more than Walmart, but Wally World didn't allow layaways and I didn't have all the cash yet. I think I actually filled out the layaway forms sandwiched between the Portland Oregon mall shooting and the Newtown Conn school shooting. Then the crap really hit the fan!! I'm so glad that I listened to that little voice inside of me! This isn't my first AR (My first was a build that a friend did for my back in the late 90's on a DPMS lower during the first AWB and last year I got a Spike's free-float monolithic railed flat top to go with a Spike's lower I had bought months earlier. But it is my first Colt! My son has 2 Ruger SRs, one a 556c and the other in 6.8SPC. Now he has the itch for a top tier AR in .308. I don't think he will get as lucky as I did. His window of opportunity may have closed unless he is ready to pay through the nose!
