Default new AR owner

just thought i'd drop a pic of my very first evil, nasty, black rifle.

haven't got a chance to shoot it yet. but it won't be much longer. i've always been a mini fan (i've got one that's a good shooter). well, actually....i still prefer wood & steel guns over black plastic....but i like the feel of my AR, and i think i'm really gonna like it. i'll update with a range report later.

S&W M&P 15 SPORT. forward rail & grip. that's all for now.....

Congrats and welcome to the evil black rifle owners club. Let us know how she shoots in the range report section when you take her out.

thanks guys. i know a pic of a cheap AR isn't all that exciting....but i'm excited about it.

definately will come back with a range report. first few hundred will only be irons at 50 or so. then the saving for the optic begins.... i'm sure i'll be bugging you guys A LOT when that time comes.

You can actually buy some relatively inexpensive red dot sights and scopes to start, but I'd recommend getting used to the iron sights first.
And an AR in the hand is worth ten thousand in your dreams. If you have fun with it and enjoy it, that is what matters. You'll get afflicted, like the rest of us, and before you know it, you'll have a membership in the ARaholics just like the rest of us. Problem is, none of us want to be 'cured' of it!!

I was fond of them too until I saw the price tag.
