My son and I decided to build my own AR.  Customized from parts we bought online.  Once all the parts came int (took 3 weeks) we put it together in about 4 hours.   Here's a pic of it.

Looks good, what optics are you using? I want to get optics for mine.

You built it just in time for Beto to confisgate it. (LOL)

Thanks, heading to the gun shop later today, I'll check those out. Also, note it's hard to get ammo here. I found a good site (AmmoSeek) that gets you availability, quantities, and shows prices lowest to highest.

ammo has dried up everywhere. Almost none of that stuff that ammo seek lists is actually in stock. I'm not paying over a buck a round for ammo. that's robbery. I'll just wait

Bought my son an AR. Have been able to get 500 rounds but the prices are higher right now. The same holds true for my 9mm and 380. Shotgun shells are readily available. I wish I was in the ammo business. Those guys have to be running at capacity with what should be good margins.

I fully understand and respect the run on both weapons and ammo. The crap that's going on in major metro areas is concerning. Especially with mayors and governors who refuse to back law enforcement and pander to the rioters. How they got elected or stay in office reflects the stupidity of the voters.

I was at the range yesterday and bought my optics with the red dot and side laser. The AR model is an extremely fun gun to shoot. I found some ammo on-line that wasn't real expensive so I purchased it. Should come this week.
