    I've been wanting and talking about doing this for a while now and I finally did it today. I ordered a Bushmaster 20" A3 in the new "NO BAN" configuration and it should be here next Friday, I can't wait.

    It was pretty funny, at the gun shop while we were waiting on my background check this cop walked in and the guy who owns the shop goes "I just got your result in, you failed... he's here to pick you up" and pointed at the cop and I was like :wtf: but it turns out he was just kidding and I passed it :rofl:. The cop was getting this laser installed into the bore/front of his glock and then they went into this long hall to get the alignment right and were shining the laser into this bathroom at the end of the hall, so the cop goes "if there was someone in there and he wasn't shitting before, he's shitting now" :bowrofl: It was good times.

    Does anyone have any suggestions or recommendations on accessories or anything that I should buy for my new AR-15? When I pick it up, i'll just have the rifle and 1 mag, what else should I get?

    was the laser installed in place of the recoil rod? if so, lasermax.

    accessories.. is it a flattop, or does it have a carry handle?

    I'm not sure if it was in place of the recoil rod, but it was recessed into the gun so you couldn't even see it at all, it was pretty tactical lol.

    Yup, i've got the A3 (flat top). I already own an Aimpoint CompM2 from when I played airsoft (hold the jokes please :o )

    Sounds like one that installs in place of the recoil rod then.

    Congrats on the purchase.

    And you'll want more than one magazine :o

    Do you recommend any particular brand of mags?

    And where's the cheapest place to buy a case of wolf ammo?

    Thanks

    You should get some training to go with your new rifle.

    The guy who owns the gun store where I bought it from is an NRA instructor, so i'm going to do something with him and he's going to show me all the ropes.

    next time i see her i'll see if i can snap one off. i don't know what's so attractive about a 60yr old woman with a glock, but whatever floats your boat.

    Great people (happily spent most of an hour talking BS and gear when I asked some questions) and their SOC-C sling can be a single-point, 3-point, whatever you want with simple adjustments. Spectre is top tier too, I have their SOP sling but BFG is my new favorite, simply for the versatility.
