So I had a couple of pistols out at the local indoor range and decided to look around after I was done shooting. I stumbled on a Armalite AR-15 for $625 that looked in too good of shape to pass up. So I ended up picking up my first AR. I'll try and get some pictures up of it later.

An Armalite AR-15 for $625 in Maryland? Man, that's a heckuva find. What range were you shooting at? I might have to check that place out.

I found it at On Target in Severn, It was a consignment piece someone had brought in. This is the second time I've gotten a good deal on a consignment from them and thier new gun prices are pretty decent too (for being in MD).

Anapex, if you hurry to Bass Pro, you can still get the WWB .223 on sale.

$2.88 per 20 rounds. Walmart has the 40 pack for about $7.50.


And sometimes they carry the PCA stuff for $2.99 per 20. Pretty accurate stuff.


Welcome to the club.:evil:

Anyone ever try the UMC bulk packs of .223? Bass Pro happens to have a 200 round pack for $45 or so.

Edit: nevermind just did the math and the prices you listed for WWB make the UMC more expensive.

I'm not sure if all Armalites come like this but mine has some form of muzzle break on the end.
