  8. The AR-15
    So I'm looking to get an AR-15 and know nothing about them. I've shot a number of them but have no idea what I'm looking for when gun shopping. I don't want anything extravagant, just a good gun at a reasonable price. A friend of mine suggested that I should try and find a pre-ban lower; I'm...
