Hello from Oregon

Hello! I am so glad i found this place there looks to be a wealth of knowledge here. I have been hunting and shooting since i was a kid but over the last 30 years or so i just never had the time to really devote to learning more about firearms. Finally the time is here and I am trying to start my first AR build and holy crap i feel lost LOL but I am having fun learning and watching videos but I don’t really have anybody I know who has done any building so finding this forum is very exciting. Are there many people around here in Oregon?

Welcome from the still semi-frozen wilds of Maine, there are a lot of smart people here that can help you out and some that are best ignored, you will soon figure out which is which. BTW some folks around here are smart a** too :wink:

Welcome to the forum @Sdodd. What are you building? Do you have any parts yet? Any ideas on what you want to do with the rifle? This will help to give better recommendations for you.

Welcome from near Raleigh NC, I bought a pre built upper and lower and bcg and charging handle and “assembled” my 1st AR also a bit ago, made it a 300blk with an optional upper but fun times to learn

Thank you all for the welcome! The build i am starting is going to be totally from scratch, I know kinda like jumping in the deep end before learning to swim! But that is just the way things have come about. I was lucky enough to get 2 80% frames it was one of those things i was not planning on but all of a sudden there were 4 in front of me and i was given first option to buy 2 so i felt like i could not pass it up so here we go. They are anderson lowers in the raw. for right now that’s all i have plus the jig. there are a few tools i don’t have yet plus i am looking into the possibility of getting a milling machine or seeing if i can rig a draw bar on my drill press and then use that.
