Anybody got one of these?

I'm a life-long diehard AK guy. However, I somehow managed to trade in to this today for an offer I just couldn't refuse. I have never owned any AR platform before (guess this isn't technically an AR) so I'm kinda stoked about it. I have 3 P-Mags, about 500 rounds of 223 and 100 5.56.

Aside from the obvious, shoot the hell out of it, what should I do with it? I know I need a single point sling. After that I'm past my level of competence.

Well, apparently it folds down so that should be easy enough.

That was just the first thing that popped into my head. Kinda like my first thought about a "Mare's leg"

That there is considered a pistol. If you have a CCW for a handgun, you can carry it concealed.

That's a lot of fire-power under a coat or jacket.

Most people I've met who have gone from AK to AR haven't looked back

But seriously. You can just use the strap - just sling it over your shoulder.

I'd put a fold down rear sight on it too. Just in case the electronic one dies.
