    I am now a gun owner... careful, gun pron

    so i got the call yesterday that my AR-15 lower had gotten to bills sporting goods, and i could go pick it up. so i head over instead of getting dinner :P i get there and he says because its a serialized part, he needs to run the NICS check, and i told him i understood, i had planned on it. so he hands me a clipboard with about an inch of paper on it, and says fill one of these out. i about fainted because i though the whole stack was 1 form.

    so i fill out the first page, flip it over, and thats when i saw it was 4 sheets, and i only had to fill out 1 page. so i sign it, and hand it over. he calls up whomever he has to call, and starts clicking away on the phone. i wish i could have heard the process, but im sure if i did, i would have "died in my sleep" last night. so he finally starts writing stuff down, and im reading the sections he writing in trying to figure out if i passed or failed, and finally, after what seemed like a week and a half, but was closer to a min. or two, i see him check the "proceed" box.

    so i give him the $20 for the transfer, and he gives me my lower, and on the way out i texted everyone i knew to tell them i was now a gun owner.

    so here it is











    so i know most of that is boring and mundane to all you guys who have bout guns before, but this being my first, i was excited, and still am.
    the guy laughed as he filled out the "caliber" part of the form. he said "it isnt really a 5.56, but its marked that way." i said "yea, give me a few weeks and it will be"

    Congrats on the new 'gun'! A stripped lower for your first gun makes quite the statement.

    You might want to check this out:
    Brownells - World's Largest Supplier of Firearm Accessories and Gunsmithing Tools

    It's a free video series detailing how to build an AR (and most common variants) from the stripped lower up. It's a nice reference to have.

    Good luck, and good shooting!

    I always wondered about those NICS check if the call goes to some offshore country like India ????
