I'm seriously considering plunking some green down for an AR variant of some sort, but there's a problem..

I've never shot an AR15 before! I've always been intrigued with the look and function of these rifles, and it's always nice to have something that might strike a chord with the anti's! I've handled one numerous times, read about how to build them (probably be the route I take) but I've never had a chance to shoot one. I'd hate to spend all that money and then not like my new toy.

So, any of you kind fellows here take the High Road through Virginia, specifically the Fredericksburg area, and you'd be willing to let me put a few much downrange, I'd be much obliged. Not looking to spend a day at the range or shoot a lot, just shoot a box or 2 and get a feel for the rifle, then go home and order some parts.

Thanks in advance!

big44mag, are you familiar with Clark Brothers gun shop/range? Not sure if that's Warrenton or Opal, but if you're gonna be around there, maybe we can meet up.

Maybe save some green and go with the 5.45x39 round? Thats what I did!

Yes I'm familiar with the place.

I plan on doing some load development Sunday morning and help a friend sight in a rifle so that should work out ok.

I don't have a standard M4gery though, all of my ARs are Frankenguns but if you buy some ammo you are more than welcome to shoot them.

Alright, sounds good. If I can make my way down there I'll keep an eye out for you. Any idea around what time you might be there?

I should be there in the mid morning but there is a good chance I'll be there for several hours.

Like I said, I don't have any standard ARs, they are all scoped and have aftermarket triggers but you can get a feel for a couple of different calibers and configurations etc if that is ok.

PM me if you get a chance.

That's High Road.

if you can remove the last damn screw on my AR's YHM rails so I can put my new DD rail on then the first box of ammo is on me

I can try, do you care if the rail gets a scratch?

Never ask a metal worker to remove a stuck screw for you...I WILL get it out! The usefulness of whatever the screw comes out of may come into question, but the screw would be the least of your concerns!

big44mag, pm sent, thanks.

I'm in Fairfax County if you're ever in this area. The NRA Range is close.
