    I've joined the club

    Over the weekend I picked up my first AR-15. I haven't even shot it yet, but I'm already really liking it. I chose a Smith & Wesson M&P15A. Since I'm new the AR-15 world, I'm still trying to learn all I can about it. So far it seems fairly simple and straightforward. Here's a pic for your enjoyment. :)

    Welcome to the fold!

    Don't see how you could go wrong with that one. There are some excellent online resources for accessories, ammo and instruction, so you should have no problems at all. Next things you might look at are optics. I have an AimPoint M4 red dot which is excellent. The EoTech holographic sight is also very highly regarded. And Trijicon's Acog is a great option for magnification.

    You realize, of course, that these things multiply . . .
    Cheers,

    I have the EO Tech holographic scope on my Bushy and it works wonders for these 60 y/o eyes...

    Thanks for the compliments. I'm going to be hitting the Crossroads Gun Show in Reno this weekend to hopefully pick up a few things for it. I'll post an updated pic of the rifle with any add-ons.

    Me too...

    bought the same model a few months back. It was an impulse buy after seeing a bumper sticker "Piss off a liberal, buy an AR15"
    sounded like a good idea so I did.

    Fun to shoot, trigger was a little gritty but it's coming around now. Thinking of changing it for a 2 stage match. Have fun - shoot safe.

    Njeske, mind if I ask what it cost you and where you got it?

    I just joined the club a couple of months ago, picked up a new Bushmaster at the gunshow.
    Why did we wait so long??
    I'm a child of the 60's, but I got over it.
