so I just got back from Navy boot camp. Time to buy an AR. Military discount FTW. Don’t feel like building my own. I have narrowed it down to these two. Bushmaster Texas M4 Carbine http://www.gtdist.com/ProductDetail.aspx?PartNumber=BFM-BCWA3F16M4TX S&W M&P15 http://www.budsgunshop.com/catalog/product_info.php/manufacturers_id/31/products_id/36913 they are very similar, if not identical in terms of specs. I was leaning towards the m&p, but the Bushy is a little cheaper, comes with a case, and best of all has a freaking Texas stamp. Being a native Texan, this is freaking awesome. Let me know what you think OT, and its good to be back.
