I have been a pistol person, but just ordered a left-hand Stag. I have 3 Glocks, so your picture is very close to what I will have on hand in a couple of weeks.
I too am interested in a red-dot sight. I have been reading up Aimpoints, pricey, but I will check out the others mentioned above as well. Thanks for the data.

Nice rifle , and congrats .
As to optics , I will respectfully suggest you pick up a cheap optic in the 3x9 thro 4x whateaver range , un mount the carry handle and mount the optic ( above 6x or so you wont even be able to see the front sight due to the focal leingth of the optics ) . You choose what meets your needs before surgery since they will likely change after . Dont go a lot of $$ till you see how your eyes come out , you can shoot as well at 200 with a cheap optic as you can with a spendy one since the quality of the optic is right now the least of the issues with the rifle . Spend a small amount now and then get what you need later .
Make sure you get full value out of today , Do something worthwhile, because what you do today will cost you one day off the rest of your life .

Thanks for all the feedback guys, I still haven't picked up a scope on account of buying a FS M&P 9mm and then the compact as well. But sooner or later I will be picking up some optics for the Bushy.
I fogot to point out that the Bushnell Holograph sight is made by EOTech and I have read reviews that it is very high quality as evidenced being basically an EOTech with Bushnell label. And it is probably $150 - $200 less than the EOTech .
