I'd be up for potentially moving to FB.

Anyone who wanted to without supplying info/wasting time on FB could create a dummy account easy enough there just to get in the group.

Finally getting some money back in the bank (thank you 70 yo 80 hour work weeks?)
Really looking in to AR's now. I got handguns, I got a couple of rifles, but no AR. |\X/

Looking at some of the Bushmaster Carbon Fiber rifles, just wondering if anyone has any experience there.

So I know a guy that works for Fabrique Nationale (FN).
Long story, short, I was kinda hooking up with this girl, she moved, and now she's dating this guy. At first I was pissed, but after thinking about it, she lives a few hours away now, and after meeting the dude he's pretty cool. Can hook me up with discounts on FN guns.

However, I don't have any experience with FN guns. So what should I look at getting?

I've more or less narrowed it to a SCAR or the F2000, since I've been looking at AR's anyway.

I'd kill for an SCAR in .308...
Errmmm 7.62. Whatever.
From my understanding (which could be way way wrong) the SCAR series of rifles is an updated FAL. Way cool.

I'd kill for any number of FN guns. FS2000, Scar 17, FNP 45 Tactical, PS90, Five-seveN, hell, even their bolt guns are primo.

my everyday carry using a crossbreed is the fnp 45, de-cock only, no safety ( I am left handed and its a southpaw friendly pistol). I have a ps-90 awaiting a trust and forms so a waiting 10.3 barrel can be attached. scar , see previous post,
fs2000 only one I don't own but I have acess to one.
I was looking at their ballista but since they do not know when they will release the caliber conversions and I have been talking to Barrett, I most likely will forgo the ballista and get an MRAD. Plus the mrad is cheaper

Anyone have experience with DPMS AR15's? There's one at the local store for $750. I know they're not military grade, but paying another $350 for one is going to mean I have to wait another month or two.

Even with the discount, the FN guns are still a little out of my price range.

Your savings are coming because your barrel carrier and bolt aren't tested to milspec, the barrel probably doesn't have m4 feed ramps cut, and your lower parts have looser tolerances.

If you're thinking about gradually upgrading over time, it's not a bad choice.

That was the plan. Almost like when I started playing again with my A5.
Get the base platform, then upgrade parts as needed. I may just wait and get the Sig the shop had. $1200, but already with a few of the Magpul parts I would add anyway.
