  1. Wish me luck winning this book. I would love to win it. Dont get to shoot to much any more, too far to drive, not much money to spend these days.

  3. I try to get out to shoot at least every other week. Would like to buy another AR, but for time being will be putting an Eotec 510 sight on my fixed carry handle Bushmaster. This book would help me keep up with proper maintenance and ideas for a future AR.
