Just bought a S&W M&P 15-22. I would like to put a scope on it and I was considering trying out a "scout" type configuration. I have a 2X Leupold M-8 pistol scope on my Ruger Redhawk but, after hunting a full season and even killing two antelope with that setup, I've pretty well decided that I don't care for the scoped handgun concept. Maybe a red dot... But, that's a different topic for another thread sometime. I have been considering trying that scope on the M&P. what do y'all think? Am I missing something that should be obvious that makes this idea a waste of time?
