My name is Ben, and I'm from Wisconsin. I'm 33 and have been hunting since I was 12. I'm also into fishing & cigars I own multiple rifles, shotguns and a couple of handguns. I've never given much thought to owning an AR as most of my weapons have been bought for hunting or home defense. A few months ago I shot a friends AR-15, and that was it! Now I've decided I have to have one.
I've been trolling several forums for awhile now, and choosing this one was a pretty easy choice. The beginners info. was outstanding and answered many of the questions that I had. I'm planning on taking my time and making an informed decision(hopefully) before I purchase my first AR. I've purchased a few books on AR's and between them and all the knowledge here I'm hoping to wade through what right now seems to be an overwhelming number of options.
I'm sure I'll have questions as time goes on, but for now just wanted to introduce myself. I look forward to being part of the forum, and hope to make some new friends.
