Welcome the Dark (as in black phosphate and anodizing) Side!
I was late to the .223/ AR game too as I was raised on the "If it ain't ought-six, it ain't%#@#" mantra. Now that I realize the basic goodness (and limitations) of the platform and cartridge Im all in.
Now, you just need an AR9 for cheap training, and a AR .22 for the kiddies, and an AR10 for big game, and a 300BLK for a can, and a lightweight SHTF build, and a retro-replica M16A2, and a 6.5 for the 1000yd range, and a..........
My first introduction to the platform was at the tender age of 17 when Uncle put a M16A1 into my hands. I finally bought an AR about 10 years after I retired from he Army. Now half my safe is full of AR's in different configurations. Everything from 22lr, 9mm, 5.56 and up to .308.

@grammontS You can lift photos off your computer using the "Upload a File" at the Bottom right of the Reply window.
You can then insert them by moving the cursor to where you want them to go, and clicking the Full image button next to the Attached Files tabs.
At least, using a laptop or desktop; mobile is similar, but different and "fat fingering" can vex.
Your a great American
Where are the pics? The addiction starts when you start assembling your own. I will never buy a factory AR again. I prefer to build my own. I have a dozen now. Started out with a BCM AR15 back after the Obama/Sandyhook AWB scare, then Palmetto State Armory kits, to assembling mine own upper and lower from the ground up.
Also make sure to keep any and all spare parts completely separate AND under lock and key. They tend to grow into full AR builds on their own if you aren't careful.
Congrats on the great purchase of an AR15!
I wanted one as a kid, seeing an ad for a Colt AR15 SP1 Sporter in a gun magazine. I even started to buy accessories for it (a sling, bayonet, magazines, magazine pouches, cleaning kit, and ammo), before I was even old enough to buy one. When I turned 18 I bought a Ruger 10/22 and that just made me want another semi-auto like the AR15 all the more! Finally I had saved up enough money that my older brother and I could go halves on the Colt! Eventually he just gave me his share of the rifle and I have had it ever since! It's been a great rifle; extremely reliable and accurate, so much so that I was able to make hits on water bottles at 200 yards with the the iron sights on the rifle!
I hope that yours gives you a lifetime of good solid, dependable service, as mine has for me!
And if you ever get the itch to build one of your own, that can almost be as much fun as buying your first AR!
Just finished assembling #6... In 6.5 Grendel
Love the wood furniture on your AR!
Good God, what happened to your pistol grip?
I can have a muzzle brake, detachable box mag... I don't have to register my AR. Not that I'll ever do anything for the state of CA again.
So I fly under their radar.
I got the Patriot Ordinance Factory (POF) Minuteman in 5.56/.223. Only put like 60 or 70 rds through it , it was too damn hot out yesterday to spend any real time at the range.
Then a good friend who is probably the best shooter I’ve ever known bought one for a prairie dog hunt. Sounded so good that I bought my first. I was amazed at the accuracy with hand loaded ammo. There are many flavors
A lot of that going around right now. I wanted to go out yesterday, but it was already way over 90° and heading to 102°. That's Texas in the Summer; is what it is.
Which optic is that?
you should put the red dot on the receiver, its a more solid mount than the hand guard
Ahhhh, that phrase sings in my ears like a sweet melody.
Truly the GREATEST Rifle of all time!
