As it was hotter here today than it has been most of the summer, I elected to not go bust my ass outside. Instead, I took the time to play some World of Warcraft, and to assemble my AR-15 parts. (I LOVE that the lower I got is called a STAR-15, instead of an AR-15.)
It was my first, so I accidentally marred the finish just a bit on the lower, but I don't think it's too noticeable. Also, I can't install the remaining 5 or 6 parts until I get a butt-stock. But all in all, I'm pretty happy for how it turned out, and it cost me a lot less than buying one that was already assembled.
