Hello everyone, new member here. 21 year old in Columbia, SC. Just joined as I will be picking up a ruger ar-556 in the next month and a SR9c later down the road in November. Will definitely ask questions as I am new to firearms in general.
Welcome to RT forum. Just a suggestion...........check out firearm safety and perhaps take some courses on gun handling and shooting if you haven't already done that. Hickok45 and a few others have some great You Tube videos on the guns you are interested in as well.
I am not a psychic but I can see many guns in your future.
Nothing wrong with your parents asking you to take a safety course. In fact it sure doesn't hurt for some of us old codgers to go and take a refresher course every so often. Welcome to the forum and hope you enjoy that rifle. I am sure you can find plenty of use for it. Good luck and thanks for joining. Lotsa people here with good and helpful ideas.
