Joined the AR Nation Today
I finally jumped into the AR pool, always wanted one. With PA on the verge of making it official (at least for a few years) to use the platform in deer season, I am the proud new owner of a DPMS GII Recon in .308. Just so many choices out there, did a fair amount of research, I wanted to go a little more than base-entry model but yet be realistic on my budget. I also had $800 in Cabela's cards saved up so that helped frame the decision.
Got home in time to head to the son-in-law's farm to let a quick few round fly. Standing offhand at about 50 or 60 yards the first two were a little low until I figured out the sight picture, then blew up the three 1/2 gallon milk jugs with the next three shots, two in rather quick succession. The kabooms scared their puppies so that was enough to break the seal on the first day.
Can't wait to spend some time and get better acquainted, and for out of the box, first-time AR-10 experience, I am a pretty happy dude. With a LOT to learn for sure.
Now, to research some optics and get ready for the fall!
