Y'know, I've honestly disliked ARs my whole life. Never liked the M16, not thrilled with .223 for anything larger than a coyote or so. BUT, in 1993-1994 I got to looking at them, just curious what the heck everyone was bickering about. Lately I've been looking half heartedly at various options. Seems $1600 is what it's taking to get into the EBR game today. -eh- a bit much for my blood just to have one. All that changed today. Tripped over S&W M&P150R for a bit less than MSRP. So, I'm a multiple EBR owner now, got four P-mags and a 40 rounder as well. Should be a neat plinker, if nothing else. Hell if I get bored with it, I can always sell it for what I bought it for, right?
