  1. Well as far as these AR manufacturers like 2A in Boise, I can say I’m over it. By that I mean that these boutique AR companies are not competitive in today’s market. Nobody wants to spend $2000 for an AR anymore. You can buy 2 or 3 Colts, bushmasters etc for that price if you look for good deals.

  2. Hello – Another option is Anderson Rifles they are located in Hebron KY and the shipping is very reasonable sometimes free. I have several from them also checkout the FR-85 its never needs lubed do to special process which might be good for future use too. They come in several calibers too.. and very friendly to deal with and they are like minded thinkers too..they also help veterans too. The last price on lowers was $ 28.00 Its another option.
    Also checkout R and L electronics – hamilton oh for ham radios baefeng etc

  3. Looking for something try Knob Creek Machine Gun shoot and gun show this weekend Oct 12-14 West Point KY. Use to be a part of FT Knox and has a very large showing like a gun flea market and other things as well.

    1. been to Knob Creek once, man that was fun! Anybody old enough to wear ear protection should definitely go! Don’t miss the Night Shoot.
      We used to LOVE going to the races at Meridian
