My AR15 (M15A4)

| |
So yeah, I purchased my AR15 after gaining much interest in the rifle about two years ago. I immediately registered on a website that is "The home of the Black Rifle," www.AR15.com. This website settled my addiction as I soon read about everything there was to know about these awesome rifles. Soon enough I knew everything I had to and by Summer 2005 I was ready to purchase one that I had found at a local weapons dealer for $900 which was a great price! The rifle I purchased is an Armalite M15A4 [link] (of course without the scope pictured in the link).

Since then I have spent about a total of a year saving up and purchasing additional parts for my rifle, little by little. From a mounting system, actual parts to mount onto it, to even a red dot scope. Without wasting any more time below you will find pictures of my AR15, no valued at over $2,000 (maybe even $3,000). It is the best investment I have made in my life to date, shooting it is even better.

Note: You will see a picture of a target in the slideshow below, showing five shots I attempted at the target at 75 yards, that black spot is only about 3 inches in diameter, three out of five isn't bad and damn accurate too.

If you don't get Grand Theft Auto IV for the Xbox 360...

...then you're just stupid.

Recently the first preview of the game was released both in the UK and in America, posted up and brought to you by IGN [www.ign.com]. The links are down below, read them, they are all three well worth your time. Posted are the two different previews (the "UK Update" and the "US Update," both very similar), and the third link is a preview of the game's engine posted the day before (by IGN Australia) the first game previews were released.

GTA IV: NaturalMotion's Euphoria Technology - IGN AU

Grand Theft Auto IV UK Update - IGN UK

Grand Theft Auto IV Update - IGN

The game is looking to be incredible with the release date also recently announced by Rockstar Games to be April 29, 2008 [link]. As far as I know, I'll be preordering my special edition copy of the game [link] at Gamestop tomorrow. :) Also, remember, this game is going to be especially much more worth it when purchased for the Xbox 360 console as over the summer Microsoft paid Take Two $50 Million to release two exclusive add-on episodes only available on the Xbox 360 version of Grand Theft Auto IV [link]. As you'll also see in the linked article, the first episode will be available pre-release or upon release of GTAIV, with the second episode being released later in the year of 2008.

Enjoy the items posted here and I'll keep you guys updated on any other GTAIV news.
