Douglas Adams quote

The designer of the gun had clearly not been instructed to beat about the bush. 'Make it evil,' he'd been told. 'Make it totally clear that this gun has a right end and a wrong end. Make it totally clear to anyone standing at the wrong end that things are going badly for them. If that means sticking all sort of spikes and prongs and blackened bits all over it then so be it. This is not a gun for hanging over the fireplace or sticking in the umbrella stand, it is a gun for going out and making people miserable with.'

It is true that an AR build is never finished. I have had the "completed" rifle for a couple of months and am still looking for stuff to upgrade/accurize/make it better. I got a set of two-piece four-rail UTG handguards from the Equipment exchange for $40. Not a bad price considering everyone else is out of stock.
I still have to pick up the optics, I am all but committed to a NcStar MKIII 2-7 scope. The dealer that I am getting it through is throwing in a small double rail mount that goes on the scope for $6 bringing the total to $96 shipped. I don't know if a better deal exists out there. I just need to hurry up and buy the dang thing.
As far as ammo, I have about 600 rounds. I know I need more but with the crazies in California there is none to be found in the stores that is less than $.75 a round, I was having issues paying $.50 a round a few months ago. I am working on a reloading setup but that will take some time.
