    So I recently bought my first ar-15 it's a dpms flat top and I can't decide/figure out what to do with the sights, I bought a cheap holographic sight for it but I'm not really satisfied, while I love the tectile and look of a holo I think I should prob get something with some kind of magnification.. So, any suggestion on what I should get, keeping in mind I'd like to stay under the $200 mark... Maybe even a combo of magnified and holographic, I've seen a few pics with both.. I'm going by bass pro shop to look when I get off work so any and all help is appreciated!

    At what ranges do you like to shoot? Close, medium or long range?

    I'd say medium but I'm just getting into rifles I've always been a pistol guy, prob the farthest I'd try shooting would be 100yds

    The longer sight radius makes shooting to 50 yards a breeze, 100 yard is considered short range.

    200 300ish mid range
    400 up long.

    I started as a pistol shooter too, shooting an AR really opened my eyes as to why pistols are considered Secondaries, and rifle/carbines are considered Primaries.

    Maybe try look at magpul mbus gen 2 rear & front. Cowitness it with Bushnell TRS25 ($85 incl shipping) from Amazon. Or the Nikon Prostaff 6-14x40 from Midwayusa.com ($150).

    for 100 or less a cheap bushnell, simmons, tasco will work fine for you , you start getting out there get some better glass, your holo should be fine at 100 also . I like to shot my irons at 100 and Im pretty accurate with them at that far . I suggest saving and buying a decent scope unless your on a cash crunch the above will work fine .
    Primary Arms makes some nice cheaper stuff out there also if on a budget

    Thanks guy for the advice I bought a Nikon pro staff last night but the to rings I got are too low to mount so I'll have to get some higher ones or an riser or something

    Bass Pro Shops did wrong by one of our members and refused to sell him ammo. They have enacted a policy to be pc and not abide by actual law, thus inhibiting our 2A rights. The link was to show you that many here are standing with our fellow member and showing disapproval and a boycott towards BPS.

    But if you wish to endorse them, by all means, it's a free country :cool:
