Thanks for posting, we need more gun porn - need more pics!

There are tons of good ARs out there. You can build your own cheap, or get a good reputable one. I would recommend Colt, Bushmaster, DPMS, etc for a starter. I would say Colt, but there are tons and they are very similar.

I am a retired Sgt. Deputy Sheriff and also retired military. My last two years in the military I was a gun mechanic, mainly guns for chopper gunships, and in the S/O I was certified by Al., F.B. ONE, and NRA firearms instructor. This is leading up to let y'all know that I am gun poor. I enjoy firing them, working on them and talking about them. I guess you could say they are my hobby, or to the Brady bunch, they may call me " one of these gun nuts ".
I try to tell people that firearms are tools, just like hammers, screw drivers etc.. Never lose respect for them, or like most tools, they will bite you. Don't be afraid of them, respect them and they will serve you well.

That's usually the answer for jams and such. Ninty per cent are caused by the mags.

My advice is to shoot them. The one that feels best to you would be the one to get.

Good stuff there

And it's a whole new level of caution when children are in the home..... I hate those tragedies

ok i have a question for you gun nuts, in the future (maybe 4 years or so) i wanna purchase a fire arm my question is can you LEGALLY purchase M14 or M1A1 Garand Rifle in the USA?

i know i would have to get a gun license (and other things )
Both are legal to buy. The M14 can be bought with a selector switch( wouldn't advise it, VERY hard to handle) and you would need a fed stamp for it.

You are so right. I worked a few accidental shootings of a child. They stay in your mind forever. Being a country boy, I was raised with firearms and was very well taught about caution. Best advice I can give is, don't hide them and make them a mystery. If your child asks a question, answer as best you can and stress the part that these are not toys and if they find one, find an adult and show it to them. If you don't hide something from a child, they will usually obey your rules, try to hide something can lead to tradegy.

I agree in theory, but in practice, it has it's caveats... and it depends on how ornery the child is.

Long story short, I'm #6 of 8 kids, when I was ~6, I was accused of shooting a dog with a bb gun, (I didn't)... at ~9yrs, I recall an older brother taking dads luger and putting a hole thru a steel lawn chair... ~12 another brother emptied shot shells, and shot the primers with a bb gun. Primer shot out and hit younger brother, broke the skin is all.... I could go on.

Some would say we were unsupervised too much, probably, but think back on your own childhood some of the stuff you did that your parents never knew about.

I'm in my 50's now, shooting is something I do with my kids every chance we get. I was fortunate that my kids didn't have 5 older brothers to teach them 80 different ways to be sneaky.

But yes, kids should be shooting, supervised, at a young age, and taught GOOD habits. I have some bad habits that have followed me for years, I'll let my son teach his son better ways

Bottom line, keep that stuff locked up tight till it's time to shoot

I was pretty much raised around guns. Last year when I turned 21 I went and bought a Springfield XDM 5.25in model in .45 Auto.
