If you want a basic AR I recommend Stag Arms, about $100-$150 more but it is of much higher quality. I was considering an DPMS RFA3 for $699 at a local shop but found out one of my dealer can order me a Stag Arms Model 2 for $799 I changed my mind about the dpms. However after visiting this forum I'm building my own AR 15 with a Spike tactical lower and Palmetto State Armory 16" standard upper lol.

freefall, another thought... do any of your buddies have an AR you can fire or can you rent one at a local range/gun shop? Why not handle a few in your gun shop and hopefully test fire a few. No sense buying anything until you're sure you like the platform.

Like MJ said above, why buy anything when you're a "virgin"! Surely you can get a little experience before shelling out for a rifle you don't know.

BTW, earlier you said you were wary of S&W but they make a decent midrange AR. You might have been talking about their new Sport model which is stripped down but still ok. $699 is pretty high for the Sport, maybe it was an M&P-15OR. S&W makes a beautiful lower receiver and I bought one stripped for my first AR build.

And pray you didn't knock her up. Or you'll never be able to afford an AR!
