    So pumped was going to get my first ar today. Had the paper work finished and was in line with my buddy both of us already handed the money over. Proud new owners of 2 ruger ar 556 AR15s. But wait! NICS has been down all day and can't approve to officially give me my new gun. So now we have to wait for them to get the system back up and running. No idea if it will be ready tomorrow or when. So happy to live in the land of the free that won't hand over my gun I just bought and have every right to be playing with right now. But I bet some people who plan on using the same type of gun in the wrong way could get their hands on one today if they wanted to.

    Congrats on the Ruger. I've heard good things about their AR's.

    Thanks. It's my first step into the ar world. Was stuck between building my own or getting a ready to shoot gun and for the price and reviews I feel I made a good choice.

    IF Hillary wins this November, expect it to become harder, for the average law abiding Citizen, to buy a firearm. These unconstitutional gun laws are going to ruin many gun related businesses; and have no effect on criminals obtaining firearms, in the long-run.

    You wont be disappointed. It is not a purpose built AR that you designed and assemblied for specific reasons, but it is a very functional multipurpose tool. My bud brings his to range all the time. No FTFs which is a good thing since he shoots that nasty tula crap.

    A CCDW would have prevented this.

    could be worse, at least your not living in a state that outlaws AR's.

    CCDW should not be needed either.

    So if the system goes down, do you still get it after 3 days regardless?
