I would like to get an AR-15 for my next firearm. I do not know much about them other than some basic research I have done. I know that Colt and BCM are considered good companies. My birthday is coming up and I would like to ask for gift certificates toward buying one. Any recommendations on the best way to do this? I know BCM sells gift certificates, but not sure about Colt. Is this a feasible idea or am I better off trying to work this some other way or through some general firearms website (say impactguns.com)?? Thanks in advance for any advice!
