Teach me, oh Knowing Ones, the art of the AR 15
Hey all, I'm thinking of getting an AR someday. Any suggestions on where you can point me to learn about the different setups and options on the platform? Pros / Cons, Good websites, books etc. Obviously this forum is a treasure trove, but then again any knuckelhead can post anything here and people might take it as gospel. Considering a "build" to save moolah - if so, I need to lear a lot very quickly. I'm very familliar with garand/14 gas systems (have worked on these extensively in the past), but new to the AR platform entirely. Only shot one once.
Any advice for a "virgin" would be appreciated.
