    That one's a Smith & Wesson M&P Sport, got it for $695 but they can be found for $595 like the DPMS Sportacle with Military/Police discounts. I did the whole MagPul FDE look, Primary Arms M3 Red Dot, Spikes Tactical BCG, love it.

    I won't actually leave them in there, was just messing around with places to put them on the way to the range haha.. I'd probably lay a towel over them too.

    Got it at a local store called Jimmy's Gun & Pawn, they usually have a stockpile of them. Our Wal Mart now carries DPMS, Windham, Colt, and Sig 5.56 rifles, along with the .22 versions!

    Just for info only...most ARs are the same. With red jacket, your going to pay an inflated price just for the name. (Read up on the history of red jacket, and the past business practices that you don't get to see on tv. See who doesn't have a FFL license. Might make you change your mind about doing business with them.) I've personally gone over the same model Smith and Wesson rifle pictured. It's good to go. That gives you more money to invest in ammo, quality optics, lights, and AR furniture (Magpul everything!) If you are set on the red jacket, it will be an awesome rifle as well. Personally, I'm partial to my Colt LE6940.

    Ive been pricing Ars for bout a month and after looking at some at academy the colt was 200 bucks more than the red jacket. I have shot a colt, stag arms, and rock river and the colt feels most solid and well built imo. And after feeling and looking at each one closely the red jacket feels just as good as the colt. I also like the uniqueness of the red jacket, cant name another person who has one ect. Just wanting something different is all haha

    I think this is the most beautiful series of pics ive ever seen... Love the AR in the first few, and the AK toward the end... Thought my arsenal was getting built up well haha ive got a gun list that keeps growing on the want side. Right now the list is a Remington 1911, Red Jacket AR-15, Tactical 12 Gauge prefforably auto since my remington 870 is pump (not sure what i want yet) a few odd guns like maybe a 1927A1, and a 308 caliber rifle (havent decided what yet, more on the tactical side though like a scar or Springfield Armory M1A ). Still learning all there is but im getting there haha. I follow in my dads footsteps in wanting more unique guns that ya cant really just go buy somewhere haha Centerfireguns.com is my best friend haha

    Thanks! I'm a gun freak lol.. I always take random pictures of guns/mags/ammo.. for iPhone wallpaper and stuff lol..

    Got the XAV-63 head unit, the Extenga Black Max Soft Cover, & black billet stubby antennae installed today.. Already looking at the All-Pro rear bumper & Predator step bars.. I guess those, plus a larger lift/tires, and getting the bumpers Rhino Lined will be my couple larger more expensive projects for the future lol.. tomorrow I should be working on upgrading all the speakers to the Kicker ones that arrived today.. if the sub box arrives I'll be installing those too, and probably start on the train horn install. The factory speakers are pretty loud as is, but I'm hoping upgrading to all Kicker will sound even better.

    Anyone have suggestions on a decent tag mount back up camera?
