    My first AR got delivered a few hours ago, just got home from picking it up! So stocked to take it to the range this weekend. Would post pics but this subreddit like to roast anything that’s like not 2k+ lol. Got me 120 rounds of 556, and proly grab some more as the LGS I like that has the range is running a “they pay the tax” on ammo and handguns this weekend. Been conceal carrying for 2 years now, and am happy to finally own an AR.

    ARs are a different beast compared to handguns. Post pics! Be proud of getting your hands on something new. Learn. Practice. Educate. Rifles are their own discipline.

    only shitty guns get roasted. hell, a “my first ar15” post with a S&W M&P is cool.

    posting a built gun with BCA parts and claiming it is “just as good” will open up the roast gate.

    Go ahead and give it a pre cleaning. Lube it up good. Make sure the bore is clear. And enjoy!

    []( Here it is. I wanted a entry level AR so that I can shoot it to hell, and get to know the platform better as I’ve only shot friends, and eventually will upgrade to a “reddit acceptable” Daniel Defense or custom AR lol. It’s a PSA 16″ with a mid-length gas system, 1/7 twist, Magpul stock, Magpul MBus flip sights, with the PSA EPT trigger. I just ordered the Romeo 5 as I’ve heard great things about it for a starter optic. The only thing I kind of want to change on the gun itself is the charging handle as I like ambi ones, and this one feels a bit small compared to what I’m used to using. Or it could just be that it’s been a few months since I’ve shot my buddy’s. I also got the PSA case that came with 7 Gen2 Pmags for $100, and not spending as much on the rifle let me get a good amount of ammo. I’m extremely happy with it, which is what matters! But I’m sure I’ll get roasted some for not building one myself lol. If anyone wants to look it up on PSA this is the SKU: 5165493400. I had a gift card for PSA, so I only paid $500 out of pocket for the rifle itself, which I think is a pretty good deal! Just happy to finally have “America’s Rifle!”

    First AR-15!

    Hey people will always make fun of you for something. Post the pics and let the haters hate! Be proud with what you got. Those that are making fun of you were just starting out once too!

    Post pics and stop worrying what others think. They don’t have your personal taste or have to live within your budget. There are several damn good AR out there for less than $1000, some good stuff much closer to $500. Whether or not you also have the latest carbon fiber ambidextrous charging handle or the exact right FDE furniture is irrelevant. Enjoy your new AR!
