    My 1st AR!!!

    I couldn't resist it any longer so I splurged on my first defensive rifle. Whaddya think? S&W M&P15T got a pretty decent deal. The main use will be fun and home defense. I don't know much about the platform so any useful information would be appreciated. What would you add?

    The main use is fun! It's all my 12 year old nephew wants to do when he visits.

    Nice! I know the feeling your having, went through it when I got the SR556. Wait till the "bigger caliber" bug gets you.
    I want, what they want, and every other guy who came over here and spilled his guts and gave everything he had, wants! For our country to love us as much as we love it! That's what I want!

    Buy lots of hi capacity mags (if allowed in your state) as well as spare parts (bolt/bolt carrier/bolt parts/firing pin/recoil spring/etc.) as you never know when the Obama administration may put a permanent importation ban on Assault Weapons again and make it permanent. Prepare for the worst.

    Oh, and congrats on your new AR. You are going to enjoy yours like I enjoy my AR-15 from Rock River Arms. Keep it clean, heavily lubed, and well maintained and you will have years of problem free and fun shooting.

    I went through about 120 rounds today. Should you clean between every range visit or should you reach a specific round count before cleanings?

    It is recommended to clean after every trip
