Your thoughts on my new AR and magazine madness?
I have two decisions to make, and would like to get everyone's thoughts.
I was planning to buy myself an M4 configuration AR-15 for my birthday in March, but decided it might be a good idea to swing by the gun store now. My local shop is selling them like crazy of course, but they had one left in exactly the configuration I wanted. Not my favorite brand name, but this model gets great reviews, so last night I picked up a Diamondback DB-15 FDE.
So I need to pick out some sights or optics. I like the idea of a red-dot, but my budget is under $200 so I'm thinking I'll get the Magpul fold down irons for now and plan on optics down the road. At the same time, Amazon has a wide variety of low power scopes and red-dot systems in my price range ... are any of them worth looking at? I seriously doubt I'll want or need to reach out farther than 200 yards.
The other issue is that it only came with one magazine. I'm trying to decide whether to buy a German made H&K 30 rd before my local shop sells out just so I have a second. It's a really nice mag, but it's $60. Should I ride out the magazine madness we're in and see if the online prices comes back down?
Thanks in advance!
