I’ve managed to maintain my lurker status on AR15.com for most of the last 20 years. Not because I’m not on the site all day every day, but simply because I’m not a talker. The polite say I’m a ‘man of few words.’
Over those 20 years though, I’ve seen a lot of good come from this community. It’s been an incubator for friendships, products, and even entire companies.
If you need a technical question answered, or if you need some obscure information about anything, or if you need to keep up with the latest news as it happens, AR15.com has been the place to go.
Our members are in every industry, every state, and all over the world.
So with a few words, thanks to all for being a part of my family, and each others for over 20 years. – EA
Below we’ve highlighted all the new videos since our last newsletter. We’ve got more ammo and product tests for you.
When talking about new products, the Wilson Combat EDC X9 came out last year and has been extremely popular.
Despite it’s hefty price tag, the magazines it comes with still come with a plastic baseplate.
For those that don’t like plastic, or find that dropping a mag on a hard surface will eventually break them, you will want to upgrade to our new black-anodized aluminum baseplates.
This month we’ve also got a couple of new patches in the store. These include the #MAGA, and the Join the Dark Side patches.
See the store products column on the right for details.
In addition to the new patches in the store, there are two new patches available that can’t be bought!
The first is a “Flash Bang” patch, obtained by posting on Instagram.
In order to earn the “Flash Bang” patch, members need to have their photos shared 10 times on our official Instagram account.
Members that have their photos featured on our Instagram feed will also receive the new Instagram Icon. For those members who are featured multiple times, the icon will continue to upgrade at different tiers 5, 10, 25 & 50. Tier 3, which is reached at 10 photos, will earn the member a “Flash Bang” patch.
For example, SDMF_Rebel our first member to hit tier 3, did so in around 6 months. We typically share up to 10 photos from the thread each week. Requirements are explained in detail on the thread.
The second patch will be available only in person at trade shows or special events. Look for it at the NRA Annual Meeting in May!
