Having thought about it for a while, I started shopping around for an AR. I think I've (maybe) settled on an Smith & Wesson M&P15T. In the somewhat limited looking I've done, the lowest Price on one I've seen was $1,499, but in looking through the posts on here, I find one thread where a few guys say they're finding M&P's in the $700 range. Are the ones in my neck of the woods (southern MN) that outragous, or am I missing something??? Thanks!
