    I am considering saving up for an AR-15, but only if I won't be able to use one whenever I want in the Army. How often are soldiers allowed to go to the range and shoot?

    depends on your unit. Infantry...every two months or so...pretty much everything else...twice a year.

    Imagine if reservists could get unlimited free ammo on weekends? :eek3: That'd be an awesome way of recruiting. Give them some .50 cals too.

    Buy yourself a ar15. I have a Rock River Arms upper that I've modified and I'm running a lower that I bought locally. If I was to build another I would probably go with an LMT setup. Ammo is more expensive now then it was a few years ago. Before you could get 1000rds Wolf .223 for $100 or less and now it will run $150 at a gunshow.

    no not on base, unless the range is already open, but then you have to shoot where there are already range masters and stuff like that who would allow you to shoot there (not sure how likely that is)

    ammo and membership to a rifle range gets to be a pretty expensive hobby, usually when i shoot i spend about 40-50$ on ammo alone...and it doesnt last too long :noes:
