OK, so I'm thinking about my tax return and may invest in m first 'black' rifle. There are two options I'm now considering: 1. A good quality AR 2. The new Bushmaster ACR Whatever I get would be my first real tactical rifle (I have a M&P15-22) and I only want to buy it once. Meaning I don't want to outgrow the rifle by buying something very cheap and upgrading it later. Money IS an object though, don't get me wrong. I've read a lot about BCM and am leaning towards them as an AR platform provider. I received an email from OnPoint about the Bushmaster ACR becoming available this spring/summer and am interested based on what I read, but I'm a novice. I realize it's 1.5-2x the cash potentially, but would it be worth the investment? Do any of you guys have any thoughts/experience with the ACR? Which would be better for range, training (which I intend to get) and maybe some competition (not sure about this one yet...). Thanks in advance! Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
