New AR (pics)= Very Angry Wife (No pics)
Well I did it. I picked up the new AR15 out of lawaway today and my wife is pretty angry (big understatement)... but after shooting it... well the jury isn't in yet, but I think... I'm pretty sure... Yeah, I made the right choice. She'll get over being angry, and I have a new toy!:danceban:
Went to the range to put a few rounds through it. Didn't take the camera, but I snapped a few after I got back and gave her a good cleaning... the gun, not the wife.
Shoots like a dream, and once she was dialed in, I was actually amazed at how accurate this gun is. I going coyote hunting tomorrow... that's why I picked it up today even though I promised I wouldn't until summer... I jknew I needed a .223 for the yotes... I've used my 10/22 with CCI stingers for years, but I've limited my shots to 50 yards or less, and that's a little close for most yotes. With this, new ar, I have doubt I will be reaching out a little further tomorrow.:image035:
Now I am truely at a loss, because this was the absolute last gun that I knew I wanted. So, to make my wife, and my checking account happy, I may have to lay off a new purchase for quite a while... but what a gun to play with in the mean time.
You've Got Some Good Points Here...
First, nice gun...smart buy!

Lastly, and most important...we should start a thread of just...Things to say to the wife about the justification of another gun purchase...
The Dem's ban and your dad's hand-me-down ideas are two great starters!
Stay armed...stay safe!
