Default AR build

Well I just couldn't resist the Labor Day sale at JSE and PSA..
UPS man came to see me today bearing gifts and I just got done unpacking and "building" the rifle on a stripped lower I snagged at the last gun show.
I have to say I'm impressed by what was in the boxes the "middy" upper from JSE is very nice , and the Magpul enhanced LPK from PSA is spot on. I am very pleased with both company's. I have not decided what sights/optics to go with yet so I just tossed a scope on it I've had sitting in my gun case.

Build
Double Star Stripped lower
Magpul Enhanced LPK
Magpul MOE hand guards
Magpul MOE Stock
BD 16' Mid length HB Upper 1x8 5.56

Sorry for the crap cell phone pic

Riiiight, if said, "meat head" did have the courage to pull the trigger you better be close because you'll probably loose at the possible engagement distances ARs can be effective at.

In my opinion rifles have far better flexibility than shotguns. People often tout the flexibility of shotguns, but only in the context of the myriad of loads they can shoot, but of all of them at max they are only affective out to 200yds. Also, weapon manipulation with a shotgun is problematic compared to an AR, but that's a whole another discussion among many others I have against the shotgun.

Sorry if I'm threadjacking, I'll only post more on this side discussion if PompNewbie brings it up.

Ummm.....why not have both? What makes the AR owner any more of a meathead than someone with a shotgun? Does the shotgun guy have bigger nuts than the guy with the AR for some reason? Guy with the AR can hit you from much further out than the 12 gauge.

Home defense- definitely the shotgun
End of the world- I'll have my AR, 12 gauge, .45, 9mm, .22, big knife, small knife, fork, etc.

He could be building it, because that's what he wants to do. Guns aren't just for the end of the world. I'm restoring a 1950 International, that doesn't mean I'm going to use it for the end of the world.

...yo, gravity, you arent "threadjacking" cause i am definitely bringing it back up, not so much for the debate between the shottie and the rifle, but for the fact that you dont seem to know how to spell the word lose (which by definition you seem to have done)...peace, see ya at armageddon (hope we are up close, that way i dont "lose")
