    Cool gun. No experience with Jet. HD? Red dot or EoTech for sure since you will most likely be dealing with a scum bag in low light (their office hours) and very short distances unless you live in the TajMahal?

    To me nothing is faster on target than an EoTech. I have shot all kinds of red dots and I just lean towards EoTech for indoor work. That might be why LE often go with EoTechs? I had a hard time missing targets out to 50 yards with an Aimpoint also...so just find what works for you.

    I'm a bit of an M&P fanboy (rifle only, can't stand the pistol) so I say go for it. If you know you're going to run an optic you are saving $ by getting the ORC.

    Short distance, indoor range, home protection, that's EoTECH all the way. I do suggest getting a pair of BUIS, both front and rear, preferably magpul, and sighting them in BEFORE installing and sighting in the EoTECH, it's just better to play it safe. The EoTECH allows you to sight with both eyes open, it's extremely easy to aim.

    I saw that too. That is a great price, I've never heard of Jet Guns though.

    I would avoid the M&P ORC. As the lowest priced S&W AR, $750-$100 rebate, I spent all the money I saved on...

    also, what you cannot see is the RRA two-stage trigger I had put in.

    I have had a S&W optic ready for a couple years now - no issues with it at all thru +2k rounds - but note that magpul advises against putting their polymer sight on a railed gas block -they are not rated to withstand the heat that extended or rapid fire can generate (see magpul site and look at the spec tab for the front sight)

    No, what we can't see is the invisible flash light holder. ;)

    Ha.

    I was originally using the surefire to illuminate a quick shot, but ran out of hands. Typical. So I just sat it down. I keep forgetting to pick up the VTAC light mount at my LGS.

    I bought my FS M&P .45 from Jet over the summer. Couldn't ask for a better experience as far as I am concerned. Jet used to be Buds Gun Shop in Paris KY but is no longer owned by Buds. I believe they still retain most of the same employees.

    IMO M&P 15s are good rifles, but are often high-priced for what they are. That is a decent price but I wouldn't call it a spectacular deal for a rifle with no iron sights.

    Itsa pretty good deal. If I didn't have an AR, I'd jump on it. I got an 811001 which I bulit up anyway with an EoTech XPS, Troy iron sights, and a Tritium front site, so if that's your goal, I'd say go ahead. Never heard of Jet, however.

    I actually bought one of these on sat. They are only $599 if you buy in the store and pay with cash or check. Couldn't pass that up.

    I respectfully disagree and think the M&P 15s are great rifles for the money. What have you seen for the same price that's better?

    I agree with tx787. I had a M&P15T and it was a great gun. I sold it thinking I wouldn't shoot it enough to keep it. Stupid move. Now, I'm looking to get another one. Except this time, I may go with the 15T.
