so i'm planning on joining the evil black gun crew with an AR next year hopefully. obviously prices can change in the next several months so i'm not asking for detailed lists of what is needed etc, but a basic crash course in AR's would be nice. i know shit about AR's, what are some basic do's and don't so i can start planning for the purchase. i'll do a search for some details as i know ar's have been discussed at length here. i would sort of like a .308 but it seems that most ar's are .223 any basic info on ar's would be awesome, don't need to get to technical since i know so little about ar's at this point so i won't understand most of it lol. i figure i can afford $1000 bucks next year and another $1000 the next year for optics and shit, am i crazy?
