A friend just called me from Wal-Mart. He's a pretty patriotic guy who is just now becoming a gunnie. The store he was in had a DPMS AR-15 for sale for $619.00 and he wanted my thoughts on it as he's never owned an AR before. It was only their bargain-basement "Sportical" model but I talked him into buying it and gave him a list of suggested upgrades and accessories. He's happy, and the good guys have one more properly armed compatriot on our side.
Take that, Obama.
