I know there has to be a few people here that are interested in guns.. I just got an AR so I am getting more into them than I was previously. I have hunted for several years, mainly dove and turkey because they are the most fun for me. I don't like deer hunting too much because I don't like sitting still for that long. Lol
So far with the AR all I have done is get an optic. I put a Vortex Strikefire II on it so I could go out and shoot with some buddies after I got it. My next plan is to replace the aluminum railed gas block it came with and also change out the handguard and put on a vertical fore grip. I think I'm going to get a mid length Midwest Industries drop in M-LOK handguard. I don't think I'm going to switch to a free float right now, it came with a drop in and I am fine with the accuracy I'm getting with that. After my girlfriend shoots it and depending on how she likes it, I want to start picking up some parts and build her one from scratch.
I have a Mossberg 702 Plinkster (.22), a Benelli Nova 20ga Pump, and I just got the DPMS Oracle. I plan on getting some sort of handgun in the next year or so as well.
Anyways, what all do you guys have?

Does that drop in rail require the cap that's against the gas block? If so changing out the gas block my not work if the new one won't work with the cap.
ETA: I don't think the Oracle is a midlength, they are normally carbine length.

The shop in town will install a free float for $35, I may just do that and go with the mid length, I think I want the extra length for my long arms. Lol

I've used a Magpul Bev block to loosen and tighten flash hides if my barrel is too short to get clamped in a vise. But to tighten the barrel nut, you need to be able to secure the upper receiver.

Looking into buying a Sig p320 in 45. Even with the recent mishaps they've been having I still want one and if it's the old style trigger they'll still replace it for free anyway. I just can't get over the look of it. It looks awesome and locally I'm sure it'll only run me around $500. I really wanted a 10mm, but the only 10mm that I can afford and that would be practical is the Glock 20 and I just don't like Glocks.

They feel better when you customize the grip some.
I did this myself, smoothed out the bump on the backstrap, removed the finger bumps on the front, and added some texture. Feels nice now. I'm working on another that's about half way done, just need to finish up the heavy work before I start the texture.
Which Taurus are you thinking of? I've shot the Millennium G2 and hate the trigger. Gun feels nice, but trigger is so long I thought it was broke because it didn't go off. I hear some are better than others, so if your shop has multiples, I'd try them all till you get one that works for you.

I'm not sure which it is, my uncle just told me he is thinking of getting a new one so he will give me the Taurus he has now. I was trying to decide on getting a pistol or AR, and he told me to go with the AR because he will probably give me his Taurus when gets a new one.

Except the only range close by requires frangible ammo, which costs twice as much, so I typically just make the drive out to the farm.

My dad is wanting to get a 9mm carbine that will use the same magazines as his Ruger, so if anyone has any suggestions on the ones they've liked we I will let him know to check them out.
