I turned into a gun nut

So my new hobby is guns! It all started off when I went shooting once with my friend in Temcula and fell in love. I than purchased a Glock 19 gen 3 couple months later. I moved to Arizona and just fell even deeper with open carry, conceal carry (with no permit), gun stores on every corner and cheap prices on everything gun related.

I had to take it even one step further.... so with the help of google I made this.

AR15 16" barrel
Aero Precision upper & lower hand built by me












My inventory of guns are now as follows:
Glock 19 gen 3
GSG522 (replica mp5 essentially)
Taurus 856 ultra light
AR15

Fine looking AR.

I have been into guns since i was 12 (now 54) so that is one reason I am moving to AZ.
Be sure to hit the big Phoenix show the first weekend of December. I will have to miss it as I will be moving the last of my stuff to AZ that weekend. Freedom!!

I can't wait to get down there and get back into shooting. Since they have closed the desert down here I haven't shot a rifle since march.

Some of my current guns will be sold to purchase new stuff I can't get here in CA. I plan on joining the local range and doing some of their competitions.

Enjoy your new hobby and yes, it will cost more than sportbikes in the long run.

Funny how tends to bite you and you become super interested

I recently just needed a new pair of shoes. I'm a fairly loyal to asics but always like to see what's out there.

.......fast forward a week and now I'm on stockx (which I just learned about) and am actually considering buying some fkn retro jordans I absolutely do not need.

I'm not a "shoe nut", but I can see how people do it.

Ofcourse. Buying these would be all personal/nostalgic. Not trying to be trendy/cool. I actually grew up in the 80s/early 90s and these Jordans bring up some fuzzy feelings of my basketball days. Would be cool to have.

I was fortunate enough to get the cool shoes growing up (have played/loved basketball forever).

Some Reebok pumps would be cool too lol

I remember those cool shoes. I had a couple of Jordans. It's crazy how some guys have a whole closet full of old retro shoes.

Come winter break, I'll give you an opinion about my AR's.


Lately, my go-to has been my browning buckmark (22lr). Been having way too much fun with this.

I just bought this so I can build a AR pistol since I will no longer be under their commie gun hating thumb.

Not bad not bad. You don't want the option of being able to shoot 556 though? Also you might want to wait till you get here and check out the gun shows you should be able to find that cheaper. The biggest gun show of the year is this coming weekend.

I'm working on a AR9 "pistol". I'm looking for a polymer lower that accepts glock magazines. My build is going to look like the one below



I'm going to be looking for this lower at the show.

And on a side note I found an amazing site for bulk ammo with free shipping! And I have ran 3000rds of each now through my glock and ar. No issues at all and I have stopped picking up casings lol.

$200 shipped 223

$139.80 shipped 9mm
