While we are on the subject of guns, I need an AR. For the past several months I have gone to gun shows to look for an AR and I have read blog after blog about someone building one. Each time I get excited and announce “I have to have one!
I don’t have one. I have come close a few times. But always chicken out.
My brain can only handle so much info and so far it has been occupied with handguns, knives, training up my kids, focusing on being a good instructor and EMT, but now that I have mastered those(funny right?), it is time to get serious about adding a rifle to my safe. Plus for Christmas I really want a rifle rack for Jayne and she would look silly if it was empty all the time.
I currently have saved up $1200, but after Sunday it will be more like $1600. I have always been a decide what I want, have TSM research it and then go buy it kind of gal. I am still her, but the idea of doing the research(that is where you all come in) and maybe building an AR has a ton of appeal to me. So far fear and indecision has plagued me.
In keeping with my mantra of not letting fear win and in a small tribute to my friend Guffaw who faced his own fear, I am jumping in with both feet. Today M and I are off to fondle a few AR’s and ask some questions, but I would love any input I can get from the group.
