Great semi-auto.
Now you need a lot of ammo & magazines to go with it.

Mine too, I think. I just got an email that my local dealer is having a sale next weekend and the AR is 499 with an extra magazine. Maybe I can convince my wife to get my birthday present early. I just have not been able to convince myself that I want one bad enough to order one, and this is the first one I have seen locally at that price.

Oh and congrats! Have fun with it!

My "acquisition list" is anything but short.

OP, congrats. I bought an AR-556 back in 2015. You're gonna love yours.

Welcome from Michigan. Glad you rescued that rifle. Nothing sadder than a lonely Ruger.
