I'm sure this topic never gets addressed here...*sarcasm* In all seriousness, I'm looking at getting an entry-level rifle as my first rifle. I've been looking seriously at the S&W M&P 15 Sport, a DPMS Panther Oracle, and possibly the Mossberg MMR Tactical. I've never heard of Del-Ton, but saw some of their rifles in that same general price range. This gun will be mostly for range use, but will also double as a home defense weapon. The S&W seems to get pretty good reviews. I'd appreciate any opinions.
