    New SHTF protection!

    Just bought a Bushmaster XM15 E2S yesterday. Man is it nice. Can't wait to get out to the range and check this thing out. Anyone who has one - how do you like it?

    I have several. They are all great shooters. The thing is to keep them clean. When you are done shooting them, clean the barrels and tear apart the bolt and clean it, then lube them and you'll have no problems. Every now and then run a pipe cleaner though the gas tube.

    Some ammo functions better than others. Find a one that works and stick with it.

    Now that you've got the gun, be sure to stash a few thousand rounds back for emergencys...

    Thanks for the advice. I realize first off that the one 30 round mag that came with it just doesn't seem like enough. I'm gonna want to stock up on a few of those - just in case.

    What type of rifle is that, exactly? Perhaps a photo or two...

    I have a Bushy M4 A3 carbine, and I really like it. With decent magazines, it runs like a sewing machine. The factory magazines were fine. I bought a couple cheap gun-show mags, and they were jam-o-matics. Pitched them, got more Bushy mags, and all is well.

    Make sure you strip it and lube it per the manual before you go to the range the first time.

    Enjoy!
