My first AR-15 -- and its related topic

Hey, you should check out the Leupold VX-1 3-9x40mm scope. It’s compatible with numerous AR-15 staples. It’s equipped with lots of impressive features, and can be an ideal choice for a low price. If you need something cheap with unique features, this scope is it! Check out this review on it for more info

Thanks marksman. I think I’ll probably stick to a red dot since this was more of a home defense tool for my wife and myself with the occasional plinking. :+1: When and if I build an AR10 or something similar then I’ll want a proper piece of glass.

The guy is ex SF and is pretty knowledgeable although his language is “colorful”.

I clean my AR(s) and all of my guns the same day I shoot them. It’s how my dad taught me. He said, “never let a gun sit dirty because time will get away from you. Grime and time are a gun’s enemies. If you can’t clean it that same day, don’t shoot it.” He is 94 years old and has guns older than me that look like new, and he has used them plenty.
