Nice build. I would add a sling and a light and call it good for everything after you put it through its paces.
One thing to check out, its not necessary but i wont own an ar without one, bcm gunfighter charging handle.

The charging handle is actually one of the first things I'm going to upgrade. Not sure if I'm going to sling it or not. If the little women has to grab it when I'm out of the house, well, she doesn't particularly like a sling. :)

She will if she needs to get a kid into a bed room and stay on the phone with 911. Just sayin, slings and lights are one of those things that should be on every shtf/hd rifle. Even if you dont use it all the time.
Im not saying go buy the next crazy expensive operator sling, a regular gi sling will do the trick.

Thanks guys! I do have a light already. It is my Fenix TK09 and I'll most likely use it for this rifle. Going to take it to the range this weekend and will start out with some 62gr ammo and see how that works out. Look for a range report.

Awesome. Take a few different weights and brands and see what it likes best.
Hope you get a good day at the range, last time i went it was snowing.

Lots of wet weather here in Oregon but, we have covered bays so, only get wet walking out to the targets. If it's a down pour, I'll hold off a day or so but, hopefully not to long!

Thanks, lock up between upper and lower receivers is very good. I'm very happy with it so far but, range day will tell all! :D:

AR in the safe room and Momma with the gun of the hand ? 

Sidearms can  be just the ticket when you need a hand and the ability to fire...

True. But if all she has is a rifle better to have it on your person then to set it down.
Everyone should have a plan for crazy situations. That way your sort of on the same page.

Well, I picked up some 69gr, 75gr and 77gr rounds to compare with the 62gr that I already have. Range day will be quite the affair of fun testing out each round! :segrin:

Point taken.

But both views are valid, IMO. 

The sling is essential. 

But in my planning, if  the goal is to round up the kids and get them to the safe room,

I'm grabbing the pistol. Kinda hard to fire an AR with a babe in your arms. 

 

Maybe I'll start sleeping with a slung AR (ouch!) and a holstered pistol. (No, honey I'm not glad to see you) 

Ah, don't forget the body armor/chest rig.     :laugh:

Your absolutely right on grabbing a handgun, it depends on your situation im planning on giving free lead injections in my boxers with a 20 gauge in my hall way, while the wife gets my daughter and calls 911, but if for some random reason all i have is my handgun its the same plan.
You can laugh but A sling on an ar also helps maintain control in case your on your back and someone tries to take it from you. Plus you can use it to zipline to safety like rambo lol
