    Can I keep it?

    I recently adopted this poor lonely 5.56 from the local homeless shelter. Her former owner decided he didn't want her anymore and shamelessly traded her in on some other model. It was love at first sight and there was no turning back, even the wife was in agreement, she had to come home with us.

    I'm glad to say she is doing well, much happier now and getting along with all her brothers and sisters. Boy, do they enjoy their time outside when we take them out to play!!!

    We're thinking of giving her a new name.......just haven't thought of the right one yet. AR-15.JPG

    The adoption fee was $695, but no more like her!

    Nice! Interesting how some items just sorta follow you home from the LGS - no idea how/why this happens. :)

    Feed her only the best ammo and make sure to use oil sparingly for a nice coat

    Very purdy. It's always nice when a homeless child finds a good family to take them in.

    I like it! Unintended consequences of the Demorats Gun Ban efforts, prices are getting cheap enough we can put an AR in every home in the country...
