    I'm a life-long diehard AK guy. However, I somehow managed to trade in to this today for an offer I just couldn't refuse. I have never owned any AR platform before (guess this isn't technically an AR) so I'm kinda stoked about it. I have 3 P-Mags, about 500 rounds of 223 and 100 5.56.

    Aside from the obvious, shoot the hell out of it, what should I do with it? I know I need a single point sling. After that I'm past my level of competence.

    Well, apparently it folds down so that should be easy enough.

    That there is considered a pistol. If you have a CCW for a handgun, you can carry it concealed.

    That's a lot of fire-power under a coat or jacket.

    But seriously. You can just use the strap - just sling it over your shoulder.

    I'd put a fold down rear sight on it too. Just in case the electronic one dies.
