As the title states I am looking to embark on a money pit that will surely result in numerous other money pits as I become more familiar with the gun.
Anyways, I have read over the AR15 info sticky and looked through different builds and so forth. I will say that much of it is overwhelming at first as it seems the customizations and add-ons are infinite. Thus, I was hoping to give ya guys a general idea as to what I am looking for and what I intend on using it for. I am familiar with guns in regards to shotguns/hunting rifles/handguns etc, so I am not clueless, but all the parts and so forth on these AR 15's had me a little confused. Having said that:
I am looking to build? buy? an AR 15 that I can keep for a long time. I really would like to have one that I can just go and shoot targets with, however, at the same time I will be entering law enforcement in a year or so, so in all actuality I would love to build/buy an AR that I could use to protect myself as well as others. So priority wise I guess I am looking for one for LE/Protection, and secondary, for target shooting.
Also, I have a budget of $1000 or so (is that realistic)??? As I continue to make more money evidently I can add to that.
Like I said, I know there is no set gun as the choices are endless. However, a general idea as what I should be looking for would be greatly appreciated!
