  1. I'm a high school science teacher. A real rarity these days to be a conservative teacher. I'd say 80% or more of my fellow teachers are big time libs. I can afford my hobby cuz my wife is a pharmacist and she loves shooting too!!
  2. Long distance cycling (human powered), sports, video games, family, working on my relationship with Christ. The first one keeps me in shape, especially since I'm now 40 :D. I'm working on getting my distances over 200 km (124 miles). My goal is to do 400 km (248 miles) next summer in one ride. Hopefully my butt can handle it.
  3. I'm fairly liberal with lube on my AR. The only trouble I've ever had with mine was a magazine that allowed the last bullet to come loose, so the bolt locked back with one bullet left in the mag, so there really wasn't a problem. Other than that, never a misfire or jam. I also feel it makes it easier to clean in the long run.
  4. I kinda figured that, especially since I bought the weapon new and it was put together by RRA. So, I'm assuming then that if you buy a new weapon never fired from a manufacturer, if the lower says 5.56 you can fire both 5.56 and .223, but if the lower says .223 you can only fire .223? I've never seen one that says .223 on the lower, but that isn't saying much.
  5. OK, my question here is how do you know for sure if you can fire 5.56? I have a Rock River Arms AR-15 I bought recently. The lower receiver says 5.56, but I've heard you can't always rely on that. I've looked on the barrel under the handguards and can't find any markings to confirm if it's 5.56 or .223. I have contacted the company by email but haven't heard back yet. From looking at their website everything is labeled 5.56/.223, so I'm assuming I can fire both, but I want to make sure. Can anyone give me any advice?
