    Default Got my first AR-15

    This is my weapon, I have never had an ar. This has been a real learning experience from buying the upper and the lower from two different people. I put them together and saved about 150 bucks. Now I'm looking for some red dot sights or what ever you all suggest.

    I have about 100 bucks to spend, so please advice.
    I have a flat top A3 upper, short so I'm thinking it is a M4.

    OK how and the hell do I post pictures on this web site?
    I click add image and I don't know the url? How do I find this inforamtion?

    get an eotech and NEVER look back.
    If any punk kid ever comes up to you asking for your `Gang Sign` Tap your chest twice then your forehead once. After doing that only upon a threat do you draw your glock and show him what you meant.

    Finally got the pics, hopefully I can figure out how to get these pics smaller so it is easier to upload.

    zarcher - underneath your pics in the image gallery is something that says UBBCode. to the right of that is a url that starts with [im copy and paste that into a thread and your pics will show up. Kinda like this. if you need any help with it let me know.

    Save your money for an Eotech. That flip- up you have on there is good for torso sized targets to 300+ yards. Actually in the meantime, if you HAVE to have a dot, Tasco makes a reddot that I put on a Mini-14 years ago and it's held up quite well. But save your money for an Eotech or an Aimpoint Comp.
