Wringin' out a new rifle

Hey folks,  Well I recently got an AR-15 and got some good range time with it.  Me and the BIL got out to the range to put some rounds through the new gun.  BIL built this one for me and he did a great job.  BIL is an ex army ranger and was a weapons instructor so I got some good training and instruction to say the least. 

Here's the BIL getting some ammo together

He brought a bi-pod a long to sight it in with

 we did a 50yd zero

the gun shot awesome.  This is one he built for me using an LAR Grizzly 15 upper and lower.  Barrel was a 16" unfired DPMS barrel that he got as a swap out from someone who upgraded their barrel right after buying it.  It's a single stage trigger, and a basic stock and grip setup and a 12" free float quadrail.  I don't have much to compare it to but I sure liked it.  It felt great, worked flawlessly and I actually shot it pretty good too.  So I can't complain. 

Well after the sight in we headed to the rifle coarse and I left the camera behind, on accident, and didn't go back for it.  The course was awesome and they had something called a 9 hole box that's basically a tactical shooting exercise that is pretty challenging to say the least.  Then we did some different shooting positions from various ranges from 25-200yds.  Anyways...It'll leave more pics to look forward to next time.  I did get one pic of yours truly shooting offhand. 

 Well to say I'm hooked would be an understatement.  And so the sickness begins....

thanks for looking


  1. Congrats on the new rifle! That looks like a quality shooting range with all those clean tables and green grass.

    1. Thanks Corey. That range was nice. It's a law enforcement range. I was just happy to be there :)

  2. Nice! I desperately need some time at the range.

    1. Well get out there. Remember the gun is only as good as the person shooting it is. and you can't practice too much when it come to shooting :)
