Well, once you buy one gun, one isn't enough. I am now looking for an AR 15. I've had 4 different brands suggested to me so far. Smith and Wesson M&P, Stag Arms, Rock River, and Bushmaster. I want one with a 5.56 Nato/ .223, not a .22. I have about $1500 to spend, I would like to spend the rest on ammo/quality gun safe. What do you have for suggestions? I think I would be biased to the m&p because I have a .45, and I LOVE IT!
