Default New Toy!

Today a specific co-worker who told of a sale at Sportsman's Warehouse on a nice little toy made by Smith & Wesson M&P 15-22 for 399.00 - not adding tax.

Went there examined and purchased!

Wife was looking at the time to get a Ferret and after further consideration, Ferret lost.

Feed and care for the M&P 15-22 will be much easier than the ferret!

Trust me on this one. Ferrets are high maintenance.

And I never did consider the three I owned as an addition to my arsenal.

They make lousy watch dogs.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

All poly, lighter than a real AR15,

The Colt Umarex M4 AR15 22LR OPS Carbine (German Made) is all Alloy [Metal] and better fits the feel of the AR15.

Thanks! I started the examination process on a single and the cost of feeding and maintenance. I thought 4 dogs were expensive!

They had a Colt; however, the one thing I did not like was the charging handle and paddle non-functional. The cost was the last driving factor.

The serious reason was being light, the wife might like to shoot it; however, she is bias to favor only a revolver models.

This Saturday or Sunday morning I do the honor test with M&P and the 2 toys who have been crying to be played with - the shotguns!
