New addition to the “family”
A special forces buddy of mine over the weekend convinced me to pick up the Smith and Wesson M&P 15-22, loaded with a Magpul package (sites, grip, collapsible stock). Says it’s a great training rifle, and it will allow my wife and oldest boy to get comfortable shooting long guns so that they can eventually feel confident enough to pick up a 5.56 or my SCAR-H.
I was reluctant, but I figured better to have a trained wife and kid than not. After all, somebody’s gotta go kill breakfast and clear the grounds of morning zombies, and I’ll likely still be sleeping off a whiskey eve.
Then, the magic happened. $190 for 5000 rounds of 22LR ammo?
Shit. For that, I’ll shoot you a hundred times if that’s what it takes to put you down and still come out around even, money-wise, with my bigger caliber weapons. Plus, lots more holes to plant seed corn.
Anybody have any experience with this rifle? Took it apart yesterday. Looks solid. Not much I need to add to it save maybe a cheapish scope and a fore grip.
