I bought 3 Anderson lowers on a credit card just in case, now I have to start acquiring parts to build them.

I wanted too, but I don't have the money. I scored and bought a running 460 for my f250 for $50 with LOTS of extras. I am saving funds to build a cz26 that I have. It will make a great carbine that's cheaper then a 9mm ar. Plus slowly acquiring parts for a rifle build in 308.

I probably would have, but I couldn't find any Anderson lowers, so I bought reloading stuff instead.

I've got enough guns, never thought I'd say that, don't tell my wife; well......until POF actually starts shipping the 6.75#, 16" barreled 308 Revolutions. About a month ago I picked up some small backup parts, brass, and a few bullets for reloading. That's about it, I've got enough ammo, if there can be such a thing. I rationalize like this, statistically speaking, I've got more ammo than I would ever be able to expend in a SHTF senario before I was shot dead by someone else; no delusional Hollywood like thinking here, only reality.

Sooooooo relieved Trump was elected!

Now I can take my time researching and saving for a thermal scope; hoping FLIR gets off their butts and updates their scopes, the IR Hunter MK III units from TNVC are a much more advanced unit with more features in the same price range. FLIR is well past due for an update. Here's to hoping they get something new out at Shot Show 2017!!

Thanks from tnw50cal, tonyben and Gladiator0719

Howdy Buckeroos,

I bought one a couple of years ago when we lived in California.

There was a possibility that semi-autos would be either banned or require registration.
I still have it, with the bullet button, at least it does not take up much room.

After what just happened in California, I would be more concerned with State regulation changes more so than on the Federal level.

That is in the immediate future.

Keep yer powder dry,

John

Now that I think about it I did buy one. Wasn't really a panic, more of a just in case...
Besides, who doesn't like a lightweight, piston operated 308 ar?

Weak moment? I call it repentance for cheating on your other M1As with the dirty AR platform.....

Whether you bought one in a panic mode or just wanted one, they have become a staple of life these days in the firearms community. If you will note, the trend these days to refer to the AR15 as a Modern Sporting Rifle, MSR is an effort to disguise that frightening name of AR15, "the black rifle." Other than the AK's, no other firearm has become so accepted by the shooting public and recognized around the globe. If you do not have an "MSR" get one and after you do, accumulate/make lots of ammunition to support it

Thanks from NORKALNIMROD
