    Well, let's just say that yesterday was one of the best days I have had in recent memory. This is all that happened:

    - My first AR-15 that I ordered showed up at my local gunshop - Colt LE6940

    - The ammo I ordered showed up on my doorstep (500 rounds .223 and 200 rounds 5.56). I've got some Hornaday TAP on the way too

    - The sight and mount that I ordered from LaRue showed up on my doorstep - Trijicon ACOG TA31H

    - The new ammo can and 2 H&K AR-15 30 round mags that I ordered ALSO showed up

    - I got a 12% raise at my job! (not bad for just 1 year out of school :wavey:)

    Wouldn't this still be considered coming a little late? There is still like 353 days until Christmas. :)

    Nice haul. You are now ready to defend against Zombie attack.

    Haha, yes and no. This was Christmas-Come-Early for me since this will be my big "toy" purchase for 2011.

    Absolutely. Now I just a TON more ammo.

    Thanks a lot. I read a ton of reviews and did a lot of research about everything. That approach always seems to treat me well.

    Good Times man! I had X-Mas early too! Haha isn't it grand? Is this just your plinker or HD or like an all around kind of thing?

    Yes, grand indeed!

    It's just my rifle for everything. It is my first and only AR...not sure when I will be getting another one.

    I just built mine from the ground up and I, like you, want one and only one AR! That Colt is beautiful! Now go throw her in the dirt and make her do dirty things to targets!

    Yea, I am a noobie when it comes to AR's, so, I didn't really want to attempt to build one. Plus, the LE6940 had pretty much everything I wanted in an AR.

    My next AR, who knows when that will be, will definitely be chambered in 7.62. I know H&K is coming out with one. So, maybe I'll buy that when it comes out. Who knows.

    It's so cold here in Cincinnati! I might wait until it warms up a bit to go out and shoot her. We'll see. There are some indoor ranges around here where you can shoot rifles.

    Sweeeet! Where did you order the colt from and if you don't mind my asking, how much was it? How about the ACOG?
    Congrats on the raise!

    You need a light and a sling. I recommend the Surefire G2X in a VTAC mount, and a padded VCAS, but that's just me :supergrin:

    Nice rifle!

    It came with a sling from Colt, buuuut, I am not sure how good it is. I haven't taken the time to unravel it. In terms of a light...yes, I might eventually get a Surefire. I already have a Surefire Defender LED that I arry on my person (which is sweet, btw). So, yes, I love their products and would definitely get one for the AR.

    Are slings on AR's pretty common? If so, does anybody have a recommendation for a good one?

    The sling it came with probably isn't great. My recommendation: http://glocktalk.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1297947
     
  15. Congrats on the raise and on your purchase.I'd put the factory carry strap on that Colt and take it shooting.You have plenty of time to buy other items for it as you feel the need.tom.:supergrin:
