So you don't get a sore face from shooting a .22.

Any knowledge to pass on bill? You're starting to sound like that kid who has claimed so much knowledge then deflects when they're ask for specifics.

thanks again for your input, mj!

i have heard mixed reviews (some great, some not) on the dpms, which makes it "sketchy" imo.

however, thanks for pointing me in the direction of the S&W. i am leaning heavily that way.

could you answer me a few quick questions? i noticed the S&W has a post front sight....are they difficult to remove/replace? i would probably prefer the flip ups like you have. what are advantages/disadvantages of having no forward assist?

does the PSA come fully assembled?

my wife has been a been wanting to spend some $$ lately...so you know what that means.....new gun for daddy well, maybe...
