Listener Feedback:

Yancy:  Hey guys I mean zack and Steve. I could use a show on optics. How much, is it one of those thing that "you get what you pay for,  I too am in the process of building an ar. I a cheating a little by using a in good shape older A2 as the donor  now working on the different optics I can add. Think about running an small fixed power scope on the handle and then a red dot on the side.  Thanks for all you help and the check is in the mail! Paul:  I just finished listening to the first AR-15 podcast tonight.It was great!  Really informative, and the combo of guests you had really made for a great show.  A lot of what you guys are going over actually can apply to your most awesome listeners.........(Canucks) Larry:  Is there a way to download the ar-15 podcast to my ipod? I want to listen to it at work instead of over my computer. Also if you didn't talk about it in the first episode could you talk about converting the ar-15 over to the 300 blackout and what that is? I have only heard about doing it but know nothing of it. Thanks
