Bulletproof, AR's are great rifles. Congratulations on your decision to purchase one. I have seen them stand more abuse and still work, than most other rifles(AK excluded of course). They are inherently accurate,reliable and all around fun to shoot. Cleaning is a must for any rifle, but they can stand quite a bit of shooting before needing a good cleaning. There is nothing wrong with a DoubleStar or other relatively lower priced AR's. they function great for most people's needs. Another to look at is the S&W M&P Sport. They really impressed me after seeing them go through various torture tests. Either way have fun and update us on what you get and how it works for you....
