Hi guys, i'm new here so it may take me some time to get a feel for the sight, but i'm going to jump right in and ask for help. First, let me fill you in on me. I live in ohio so my gun use is pretty limited. Until recently the only gun i've owned was a mossberg 500, bought nearly 25 years ago, and I have used it for EVERYTHING, from deer to turkey,to squirrell to waterfowl. I use it to shoot skeet. like I said everything. I've sometimes worried because it wasnt a high priced flashy gun, but it has been very good to me and she is a part of me now. (i'm closer to her than to my wife, but i'm sure I dont have to explain that to many of you) I recently got the bug, so I bought my Very First centerfire rifle, a savage 110 30 06. I'm putting good glass on it, and just like my shotgun, I figure if I only have one, I will become very familiar and comfortable with it and I will learn to use it very well. I also have a marlin model 60 .22 I bought a Taurus 24/7 pro in .40 cal about 8 months ago and have used it enough that I am getting pretty good with it. Once again, one handgun, use the crap out of it and get good with it. Do you see the pattern here. Nothing I own is absolute top of the line, due to financial constraints, but I am of the mentality that it isnt the gun that makes you good, its the shooter. So I shoot the heck out of what I am lucky enough to own and get good with it. That brings me to my dilema, I really want to buy an ar15 sometime in the near future. I have looked around and only DPMS or Rock River seem to be in my price range. What are your thoughts on these 2 guns. I know I will get alot of replies saying save your money and buy something REALLY good at three times the price, but I am more of a utility kind of person that a top end gun nut. Imagine that, I dont even have one purdee in my collection. LOL Please offer whatever advice you can.
