Hi All,
Well I'm gonna keep this pretty original. I was actually referred here on a forum by a member from Northwest FireArms. @v0lcom13sn0w
Both forums have plenty of activity and lots of feedback. Found it just while browsing at wo.rrr... I mean my spare time.
Anyways after 2 years of sitting on an AR lower, its finally done....but I'm not. Because "1 is the loneliest number..." I might start on a 308.
I really am not afraid to admit that I don't know a lot about semi-autos. Grew up around hunting shotguns and revolvers as a kid. Hoping to learn all I can from this forum.

Thanks in advance.

Welcome! AR's definitely have a tendency to multiply :confused:

What're your plans with it (and the 308)?
Thanks for the welcome. Well right now my AR 556/223 is a simple commercial spec setup. 16" barrel free float guard full upper from TPS. Areo lower with standard trigger that I purchased from TDS. And a Bushnell scope and Magpul butt stock that my buddy gave to me. Recently added the Cross-armory accessories to make things California legal and also look pretty stupid at the range breaking my upper from my lower at every change out. LOL Gotta love California. Would love to start competing at some point.
 
Welcome. Lot's of guys with tons of build info here ready to answer questions. I'm in the middle of my first AR10 build and it isn't quite as cut and dry as the AR15.

You are correct! I actually chose to have someone else build mine for me. I was afraid of all the different parts and didn't want to cost myself a bunch of money. I give you a lot of credit for giving it a go.:)

Oh about the 308.
Haven't started on the .308 yet. But before that, I'd like to get a Glock19. I'm kinda set on the that one as my next purchase specifically because of the availability of aftermarket products and accessories. I feel like it's a great gun for home defense and to run drills or as a CCW then later on transition it for intro 3gun. I know it's not for everyone, and I'm open to other suggestions but till then the base price and usability is up my alley.

Good choice in a handgun! I steer everyone I know looking for their first handgun toward the Glock 19. In my opinion there's no gun that 'checks as many of the boxes' as it does.
