So I was thinking to myself the other day, can I purchase/assemble an AR-15 funded solely by bitcoins? Surely I can... so this thread will document the various parts that I find that I purchase using only bitcoins, either directly or indirectly.
What is an AR-15? For those who don't know, it's a gun that can be assembled by a plethora of individual parts. There is, quite possible, a bajillion different things you can do with them. They're like the Honda Civic of the gun world, except much much cooler.
So that out of the way, my goal is to either trade bitcoins for AR-15 parts either directly (giving bitcoins to individuals or companies for direct trade) or indirectly (purchasing either amazon.com gift cards from a service, or selling the bitcoins for cash on an exchange, and then using that cash to buy the parts, from an individual, dealer, or gun show).
I'm pretty much a newbie when it comes to AR-15, so please don't make fun of my purchases in case I buy the "wrong" company or part. This goal is to see if I can get a "free" gun (minus the cost of electricity). I think it's possible, so that's why I'm doing this.
Note that I'm keeping this entirely legal, so I won't be buying fully-auto parts, since I'm not authorized to own such guns..
This thread may take a while, since I don't have an awesome computer, and cannot mine coins quickly. It will also depend on market price of the coins as well. If the value of coins drops a lot, this project may never complete (or I may cheat and buy it anyway). If the value of coins goes up, I will be able to complete it faster.
Note that all shipping costs will also be paid for by bitcoins.
Away we go.....!
