OK i'm down to weeks before I purchase my first AR. This gun will stand guard by the bed,ride in truck behind the seat and shoot side matches at IDPA shoots at my range. Putting some type red dot on top for optics. My question is do I need the 15T as I plan on keeping this weapon basic as stated above,or would the 15A be my better choice. Thoughts please.

I believe the 15A will do anything you want to do with it, and you would have some money left for optics or ammo.

The Aimpoint C3 is a really good value IMHO. It gives you similar capabilities as the ML3, but without the cost.

I agree you cant go wrong with Aimpoint, or EOTech, with the money you saved I would personally go with EOTech. I currently have an M2 with a 3X magnifier and love it, but when I put my EOTech 551 on, look out; I cant miss with it...

Ok I'm lost. Too much to choose from.
please advise on which sling to use. As I've said I will shoot this gun in side matches at IDPA shoots on our range. Some stages I will shoot both AR and pistol in same COF, so I'll need to swap from AR to pistol and back some times. What sling is best for this? Single ,two point ect.

As far as slings go, my favorite by a landslide is the BFG/Vickers Combat Sling



In my opinion, and I've spend hundreds of dollars on dozens of slings over the years, the Vickers sling is head and shoulders above the rest. In fact I run them on all my ARs and my AKs now.



Grant sells them so if you're getting your M&P15 from him you might as well get the sling at the same time.

Thanks m4arc, I think this is the way I'll go. Does this sling use the factory mounts or is there more stuff to buy?

If your M&P15 comes with a side-sling adapter then you're good to go. Like the sling, Grant should be able to get you set up even if your new carbine doesn't have a side sling mount.

Vickers two point is the best IMHO.
