My youngest is finishing her college semester from home, and I learned that somehow she's never seen Animal House, Airplane! or Blues Brothers. So I'm filling gaps in her formal education by introducing her to the classics. We're up to Airplane!, scheduled for tonight, but I can't find my copy of Blues Brothers, and it's not on Netflix.
I actually recently completed my first lower, and besides and armorers wrench (which you can get cheap) and a 15 minute YouTube video..I didn't need anything "special". It's extremely intimidating when you haven't done it before. After completing my first one I could confidently do it again without the video. There's a couple tricky parts and a detent and spring may fly across the room, but besides that it's pretty straight forward. Don't let it scare ya.
Also to add, always have an easily lost or broken parts kit or two around. Ya know in case....they're like $6 each...
I received the "Why did you buy more beer?" remark this afternoon from the Mrs. So what if I have a 30 pack still sitting at the bottom of the stairs! LOL
Also, that article is NOT Fake News. I'd say 55% is pretty accurate lol
