My New Bushy... :)
 
Well guys...The black rifle bug finally bit... I went out and purchased a new rifle. My gun collection has really grown in the past 4 months! I went from having my XD9 SC and my little P22 plinker, to owning 3 rifles and a shotgun too! A Mossberg 835 12-guage turkey gun, a Savage 110 in 30/06 for deer, a little Ruger 10/22 for plinking and squirrels, and my newest purchase... A Bushmaster 16" M4 in .223 and 5.56! I added a BSA 3-9x40 illuminated dot scope to the top (cheap, sleeper scope).

Anyways... Here's the pics of the new purchase:

It shoots very nice. I only put about 25 rounds down it since it was freezing outside, but it's a lot of fun!!!

(I know that my stance isn't the best... It was a pose for the camera/tripod)...

That's a lot of scope for a little carbine. Have fun with it, looks like a good investment!

It warms my heart to hear of another AR15 being adopted into a good family.

Matt - Maybe... This is just a range gun, so shooting out to 100+ yards should be fine. :)

100 yards should be easy for a rifle like that. The scope will just make you more accurate (but it is a pretty big scope!).

Anyway, congrats on your new acquisition! May it give you many years of enjoyment and peace of mind.

Some advice.

Being you have an M4 you may want to invest in a heads-up display such as an EOTech or Aimpoint. With your current scope-configuration you will be unable to form a proper fighting stance.

The M4 is best utilized when the stock is fully collapsed and your body is in the fighting position. Shoulders square to target elbows at sides nose to charging handle.

The army taught us that you used that to adjust you length of pull. It's not necessary to bring the LOP way down in most cases, only when you're shooting really close in. I'm 6 foot. If I collapse the stock on an M4 the whole way, the charging handle sits under my jaw, rather than up my nose where it should be.

Gotta agree with Matt. The whole reason the stock is a "6 position" stock is to allow a little bit of customization with your shooting stance. I'm only 5'8" so a fully extended stock is almost too long for me. It is all what you become comfortable with.

Anyone have a suggestion on either EOTech or Aimpoint? I don't want to dump a ton of money into this (as I said, pretty much a range only gun)...
