Was great. After talking to a family friend, he and i went online and helped him select all his parts to complete his first kali compliant OLL build. After his freind heard, he then contacted me and I helped him get his.

I feel pretty good about the whole thing. Keep showing the light folks! Well win in the end!

Buddy and I recently bought our first OLL's. I got him interested after reading the info here. He chose a .308 lower, and picked it up as I was picking up my 2nd Stag lower from 10%.

For some reason, that seems to be way more difficult. :confused:

I wish I could say the same. For some reason everyone that i show my STAG-15 to thinks that it is illegal, some dont even want to touch it, and show no interest of getting one of their own. :confused:

I guess it just looks to fun to be legal......:D their loss........................

I got a guy at work excited and in the last 6 months he's dropped 4k on AR OLLs alone, and I think he just got his NRA life membership. Yea, he's a single Captain.

I teach about 30 - 75 people who have never fired a firearm before, how to shoot responsibly, per year, for the past 5 years. :D

Good job on the OLLs, though. Every new person we can make realize that evil black rifles aren't so evil is a job well done.

educated about a dozen people at the range i go to, and talked 2 of my friends into OLLs, now getting my friends to join the NRA is another story!

Being new to OLL myself, I'm proud to say I have brought 3 more shooters into the OLL club. :)

Picked up one after talking to a Marine at the range then doing some research here. Have convinced two friends already, who ironically already have their guns while I still wait on an upper *sigh*

Well lets see, maybe a couple. Over my life time, I lost track. Probably in the low thousands range. :eek:

I have personally gotten 2 people to get OLL's - we're going to assemble them this weekend. Another has said he's going to order one next week, and one of the first guys got a couple of his friends to buy OLL's...it's spreading.


How does that quote go about "I'll teach 5 men to fight, and they will teach a hundred" ?

If they are hard nose to join the NRA, Please ask them to join calguns. whats the use of haveing a oll if you don't understand the laws and the ever changing laws we have to keep up with. I always refer everybody to this site first then if they are truely interested I help them get a OLL.

I've got 3 into OLLs this month. I've got another on the fence waiting for the wife's approval for a firearm. I've been waiting for a year:(. I'm not holding my breath.

To a brand new OLL Owner, what are the benefits of joining the NRA?

They will do 95% of the fighting for you to keep your OLL.

Isn't that worth the cost of a box of ammo per year?

Two for me too, plus both are calgunners know as well, Plus its cool since I built mine first, They have both dedicated my house as their build house. Fun for all.

A big thanx to calguns and all the members here.

Since about december of 2006 or whenever the initial breakout was, I've got about 19 people total into the OLL scene.

I don't understand. What fighting?

I got both of my Off List rifles because of information available freely on this site, and of course by reading and understanding the laws presented on this site as well.

I have gotten numerous friends of mine interested in the whole OLL movement and I've influenced 2 to actually buy OLL's and begin their own journey.

How would joining the NRA additionally benefit a n00b?

...

The fighting that continually goes on in our state capital...against US (gun owners) and the gun grabbers.

Just because you can have them now...doesn't mean you will always be able to.

It's good to have a group of like minded folks fighting to keep your rights. As a gun owner you should care about every anti-gun legislation out there...period. Unless of course you don't like you rights.

I haven't even bought an OLL(soon though), and I've converted a friend.

I have one friend who 'saw the light' once I explained and showed how the OLL is legal. His 10 day is over this Thursday, I get to help him build it sometime next week. Hopefully I can keep this trend going for a while:)

Got one of my buddies to build one a while back. We recently just ordered another round of lowers to start 2 new builds! Gotta love it.

Another buddy of mine got the BRD and im gonna help him put together a build (pending the funds).

I love letting friends try it, and explaining the legality. Really helps to get them into it!

Spread the disease!
