Help! I can't understand my LMT manual.

the manual that came with my LMT rifle is unreadable. It is by far the worst owner's manual with a gun I've ever seen.

What I was searching for is, for storing the AR, the only way to get it into the "Safe" position is with the hammer cocked. Is it bad for it to be cocked, or should I dry fire it to release the tension and leave it like that?

Also, can somebody recommend a book or video or something on the AR-15 so I can learn this platform. I'm new to it and want to learn as much as I can, but this owner's manual isn't usable.

It looks almost like somebody was detailing what should go where in the owner's manual, but it never got beyond that point. There are notes about what page should describe what, and where diagrams should be. Like there are lines that say, "Add diagram here." - but there is no diagram. Stuff like that all over the place.

Thanks. In the meantime I want to know how to best store it, and then will wait to read up before I take it shooting.

Try this, but skip the parts that deal with the "burst" setting. ;)

In all seriousness, it will talk about everything from maintenance and lubing, to getting a zero. Just remember your rifle won't have exactly the same parts, but disassembly will be very similar.

I would store it with the hammer down, and not worry about the safety. If you very slowly pull the charging handle back, you can feel the point where it contacts the cocked hammer and pulling the handle gets more difficult. At this point, or just before it, you can pull the trigger and the hammer will ride the bolt closed when you ease the charging handle forward. Or you can just dry fire it, your choice. It won't hurt it either way.
