I bought my first ever gun today!

  1. Great gun! I have one too! Can see it on my profile, recently posted it. Done a couple things to it is all

  2. You made an excellent first choice, now learn the four rules of gun safety and hit the range. I very strongly recommend always wearing properly inserted earplugs and earmuffs and wear shooting glasses. I have hearing damage because I wasn’t careful enough when I was younger and I’ve had bullet fragments and even full bullets come back at me so it’s always smart to have shooting glasses.

  3. Treat every gun as if it is loaded, make sure the gun is pointed in a safe direction at all times, be sure of your target and what's behind it, keep your finger off the trigger until you're ready to pew pew.

  4. One of the guns I shot was a Glock, and I didn't care for it at all. There was also a Beretta 9mm there which I much much preferred!

  5. Are u going alone or with a friend? If alone, I think a good idea would be to ask the range staff for some pointers on best safety practices and on technique. From my experience range staff are typically nice and very willing to share their knowledge with people new to the hobby. You gotta practice and ingrain good gun safety habits from day one. You made a good choice, that's an excellent rifle.

  6. Woah woah woah be careful saying that around here. If its not made by Wilson Combat or LaRue and cost $2,000 then its basically shit according to some folks around here.

  7. Great choice, you should do yourself a favor and switch out the grip when you get a chance lol I have a Magpul Moe + grip, it's rubberized texture and feels great but they get grimey with time I've heard. But yeah, these standard issue A2 grip works but it's not very comfortable for most people. Other than that, anything else is optional if you wanna up grade but it you never do single thing to it you sti have a damn good rifle that will last the rest of your life with maintenance and replacement of worn parts at suggested intervals.

  8. A rifle with a sling and some magazines is enough to make you feel more secure in this crazy world. Glad to see a new gun owner out there.

  9. Good choice. I've got this exact rifle, and I can abuse the hell out of it and it's still perfectly dependable.

  10. I highly recommend you brush up on gun safety and gun etiquette! As someone else said, ask the gun range staff, they love to help new shooters it’s more exciting then the boomer fuds and know it all’s!

  11. Hell yeah, perfect one to start with. Be safe, and if you ever feel like your being safe enough your probably getting complacent 😎👍

  12. SOLID choice for a first firearm. There are better guns out there, but not alot. Definitely not in that price bracket. There are tons of worse choices. Congrats! Now put 1000 rounds through it. Take it down and put 8t back together, as often as you can. Be as familiar with it as possible.

  13. As someone who’s had a sport 2 for a long time, I can honestly say it’s one of the best purchases You could possibly make! Super budget value that you really can’t beat. And because it’s an AR whenever you get tired of how it preforms you can just slap some new shit on it and basically have a new rifle! Congrats man, that’s a winner right there!

  14. Very good starter AR! Mine had some weird issues with it but it is what it is, that happens sometimes with mass produced rifles

  15. Congratulations. If you don't know anything about shooting, find a range with instructors and get training before sending rounds down range.

  16. Congratulations on the purchase; the M&P is a great entry level rifle and the perfect platform to learn to shoot.. this was my first AR as well, and I still continue to shoot it regularly.

  17. I know it’s tempting to look at fancy rails and gas blocks but the number one thing you want is an Aimpoint PRO or one of the many competitors. It was the best upgrade for my first AR by far. These things run good.

  18. M&p 15 Sport II...excellent choice my dude!!! She will run you many rounds and many hours of enjoyment I hope!! This is a fantastic AR, with a lot of options for customization and improvement, be sure to post video when you let her rip!

  19. Great gun, I bought one about 6 years ago for $500, (wish I would of bought more) I shot over 1000 steel Tula rounds through it without ever cleaning besides a Remington oil rag. Incredible gun for the price. This “entry level” gun will do you well.

  20. If you get the inclination to change out the handguard and gas block, the handguard isn't too bad with a decent armorer's wrench. The gas block, however, I found to be a giant pain in the ass, but as with most other gun related jobs, I used a spring loaded center punch to get those wretched pins out. I just did this gas block swap on Saturday, so don't hesitate to hit me up with questions. I linked the tool I used to get the gas block pins out below.

  21. I like how I have a piece of metal in my safe that if someone just happened to inadvertently walk off with it, they can be charged with a felony.
