Ok here is the deal. I have come upon some money and I want an Ar-15. I have always wanted one and never realy had the money laying around for one. I have a couple of questions. 1) is an ar15 worth the $1000 I am about to spend? And 2) for about $1,000 what's my best option. A local gun shop is pushing the s&w m&p moe. I also like bushmaster. But on the other token I could spend $1200 and get a colt. But do I realy get more for the money?? I realy like the idea of having a dark earth Ar to match my dark earth m&p .45 carry gun. Oh yea, the uses are basic home defense and just fun. Thanks in advance!!
