In regards to optics, I'm sure at some point I will, but I'm in no rush. I'm a traditionalist I'm gonna shoot irons. All electronics fail at one time or another for many reasons, so I'm gonna get proficient with the irons.

I wouldn't consider myself a 'Mall Ninja' or 'Coach Commando', just an enthusiast. and if SHTF God forbid, I'm gonna grab my shotgun... maybe my wife would take the AR
Good report man the M&P15s are good rifles, that reminds me I have to hit the range with my son soon my MOE has been sitting quiet for a while now! Enjoy the rifle!

Because Im betting all those Noveskes do is show up in online forum picture threads. Peace.
I love the personal attacks. Especially from the likes of you.

And yeah I have probably been in a few fire fights... not sure the gun saved my life as my training did... I was using a Colt at the time FWIW.

But I am sure you would like to share your story of when you first earned your CIB or Purple Heart? I would be very interested in hearing it.

Delete to keep this from being a standard black rifle forum thread.

I believe this has been posted before, here's a Sport that somehow made it through a week long course at Gunsite.

What do the last 50-60 posts have to do with me buying my first rifle?

I mean really, I did my research, I knew what I wanted and what would suit MY needs. I get it and I was excited to share with my fellow Glock enthusiasts and this is the reception. oh well...

I, for one, am happy for you. The Sport is a great rifle for the money, regardless of what some of the Delta Bravos on here will say.

If it works for you, as it does thousands of others (including me), shoot it and enjoy it. Some people just feel the need to justify their $1500 purchases when you can have just as much fun for $600.

You are right, and I apologize for my part in hijacking your thread. I think you got a good rifle at one heckuva sweetheart price. I would have been all over it at that price.

Congrats on your purchase! If I find one, I'm getting one for myself. If I find that I want to upgrade, then fine, my boy will love shooting it. He has the S&W M&P 15-22, and it doesn't have the forward assist or dustcover either.

My apologies for contributing to the derailment of your thread. I feel you and I are in the same boat, after an honest assessment of my needs and the M&P Sport I felt it was the perfect rifle for me. Unfortunately it seems some people are offended by the fact that some of us feel that a more affordable rifle meets our needs. The tribalism and emotion that so many associate with their brand choices is one of the things that turns me off to much of the AR "community".

I bought a 15-Sport for the same reasons. You're not alone. Congrats again on your new rifle!

Man that's just straight up hilarious. Sums up the internet heros perfectly.


BTW, I just picked up one of these S&W's just to piss off the chartologists out there. Heck of a little AR for $609 OTD.

So Noveske is CLOSE to milspec.

That won't make the "rich", fanboys happy.

Well stated! The closest some here have ever been in a firefight is with their charcoal grills, let alone what is "the best" fighting rifle. You but what you can afford and enjoy it, don't let a few chuckheads discourage you.

When I was active duty, I was in a firefight with my Kiwi shoe polish. Burnt a big hole in the carpet of the living room. Does that count?

I feel as though I fell and hit my head, and when I woke up I was back in the 1911 vs. Glock forums.

It ends up being the same argument over and over again, and if you don't spend $3500 on a one-off custom made 1911 that was made on machines lubricated with the blood of poor people, it's a piece of garbage, and will inevitably cost you your life.

Has the Colt 1911 and the Colt AR brought a lot of guys back home safely? Absolutely. No question about it, but so have Glocks, so have M&P15's, so have Bushmasters, so have...so have...so have... Does that mean that anything that doesn't have a Colt logo on it is a piece of crap, just because it's half the cost?

I've got a Kimber 1911, has never jammed on me.
I've got a Glock 23 and 27, has never jammed on me.
I've got a M&P15 Sport, has never jammed on me.
I had a Taurus TCP .380, (once I got through the recommended break in period), it never jammed on me.

I guess what I'm trying to say is while new users are browsing these forums, there should be a bit of understanding that there are users on here that are true Firearm Enthusiasts, and there are other users on here that are just Tacticool Fanboys that use their $4,000 rifles outfitted with their flashlights, lasers, bi-pods, tactical salt & pepper shaker, $700 optics, and portable ghillie suit to punch holes in paper and shoot the occasional prairie dog, and think that overspending and buying all kinds of gadgets makes them an authority on something.

I see what you are saying. You spend money for quality stuff and you are a Tacticool Fanboy.

But you see that is where you need to put that you are an NRA Firearms Instructor at the bottom of your tagline so that everyone knows how much of an expert you really are?

How long was that class again? Oh yeah a whole weekend if my memory serves me.
