Rifle Basics

Friday's post seemed to garner a lot of attention. So let's make sure we set some things straight. Friday's post was about rifle upgrades. There was no mention of basic handling, basic equipment, etc. This post shall address those topics.

Basic equipment
All AR15 Patriot rifles should have:
* A sling
* A white light
* 6 mags, minimum.
* 300 rounds, minimum.
* Iron sights, zeroed at either 100, 200, or 300.

Basic skills
* Accurately and repeatedly able to hit targets at 300 m.
* Load and reload the rifle.
* Field strip and reassemble the rifle.
* Perform a magazine change.

Without a doubt, there are other valuable skills and equipment items out there. However, these are the bare essentials.
