AR Type Rifle Magazine Recommendations?
WELL.....I "pulled the trigger" and bought an AR type rifle.
Specifically, I bought an S&W M&P15T.
This is very similar to my setpson's rifle that I shot a lot last July in Colorado, but has the (STOOOPID!) Kaliforniastan "Bullet Button" instead of a standard magazine release, a slightly heavier barrel, and some Picatinny rails with "flip up" iron sights in place of the forgrip.
Both my wife (who's pretty recoil-adverse) and myslef really enjoyed shooting her son's M&P15 while we were there. She was surprised how little recoil there was, and I was surprised how fast I could acquire, and hit, targets using the red dot sight on it.
I was ringing the steel no problem at 200 yards, which absolutely floored me.
This one comes with 3 snap-on handguards to use on the 90*, 180* and 270* positions so you won't chew your hands up on the rail in case you don't have any TactiCool stuff mounted on them.
I might put a weapon light on it, and will definitely get a Red Dot for it.
It comes with ONE 10-round magazine, and before I take the rifle class I signed up for, I'd like to get several more.
SO......being a complete "AR Rookie", what do you guys recommend? I've read that Magpul makes good magazines, and the guy at the gun shop said C Products also makes good ones, and to stay away from ThermoMold.
Sweet Little Wife sent this. She's been babysitting both of them while The Kids are at work. Maybe there's some hope for the future...

Well, The Kids just stopped by to pick up The Little Guy from his Sunday night sleep over, and they'd just come from the Doctor's o...
