Hi guys et ladies

I am on the 3rd day of 10 for my Smith and Wesson, M&P 15-22. I figure I really like the fun of the AR, but I am not planning to defend civilization any time soon so the .22 would be a good hold up for now.

With that said, an idle mind, trigger finger, etc. is the devil's playground. So I have been working on buying accessories and upgrade. Heck, I even ordered the muzzle brake from internet. What's bought so far?

Without going into details, mainly because I am too scared to look at my orders on Fleabay and Amazon, but:
Muzzle Brake
Tactical Sling
Red/Green Dot Scope
Stock
Handle
Grip
bipod
So Tacticool!

of course, more cleaning gear, as I only own a pistol. Rags, boresnake, S&W cleaning stuff, because it is safe for polymers, so my XD and my 15-22 can share.

I was only interrupted by the scare that this gun can actually blowup in my face. Out of Battery Discharges, seemed to be rampant with this weapon. Concerned, I called Smith and Wesson this morning. They assured me, this was not widespread, but an "acceptable" number compared to the sheer number of rifles they make/sell. They said that they can barely keep up with the demand. The CSR said, there are some people with problems and they took care of those very quickly with the weapon's lifetime warranty. They suggested that I use CCI minimags, which they say is what is used by them in the factory. Anyone know if Wally World in Fairfield stocks this? If so, how much? If not, where's a good place that will be too far to get some ammo? Apparently, my rifle's DWTxxx serial number is the current batch. Thank you in advance for general comments and advice....darn 7 days...go by faster!!!

You need at least 2 more magazines.

If you have a red dot you might want a magnifier with FTS mount.

Yes, I'm trying to get you to spend more money!

I dunno about walls world in Fairfield, but I'm pretty sure the American canyon one sells mini-mags.

I forgot to add that, I bought 2 shorties, since it doesn't make sense to have a banana that only holds 10...flippin' California...I guess, it could be worse, we could be in MA or NJ/NY.

Looks like a good list of accessories!

I, and my M&P 15-22, really like the Federal 550 packs from walmart.... I have gone through a few thousand without any issues (I did 2 boxes one day with another 250+ of some really crappy stuff, and I didn't have any failures).

FWIW - mine eats the CCI Blazers without problems. They are about $20 for box of 525.

Might as well let your wife know that your M&P will be very inexpensive to feed.

Yes, much cheaper than the 40SW for my pistol.

Ok just for the sake of saying, I did have an out of battery with the S&W 15-22, well my wife did and I was right next to her and I got the shrapnel up the side of my head. It bleed, funny story.
I had an older model S&W gave me the newer model in 10 days.

Now for serious words, you need 4 brinks of M-22 ammo, 5 mags and change all the furniture :-)

I like that, tip for tat. Quid pro quo. Were you standing on the left side?

I'm willing to place a substantial bounty on whoever it is that keeps whispering in my ear when I'm in the gun store "c'mon, its on sale, get another gun, you know you want to!"

You should invest in a new trigger... My 15-22 trigger group is horrid. Idl if they are better now or not but just a recommendation.

I read that about this gun. But for the time being, I'm going to leave it alone. S&W told me that I can change anything on the outside without voiding the lifetime warranty. Anything internal will void it. If this thing explodes in my face, it would be nice to go after S&W. :)

My trigger seems to have gotten better over time. Now I like it just fine. Heard others say the same.

Ha! I walked in today with my AR15 to see a big box from an order I placed with Mossberg 2 months ago with all the parts to convert my 930 to the 930 SPX...and that's not including the boxes of stuff Amazon has delivered of Otis cleaning gear, Froglube...or the Glock I picked up last week.. and the growing ammo stockpile at home...just talk about how crazy things are going to get as the election nears and how you are happy to be getting squared away now rather than later:)

uggh, you can't stop....that's a fact. that's the thing with rimfires. You are saving so much money on ammo, it "justifies" the never-ending cash drop.

:D its only money. It's not a problem until your couch is a cardboard box, and you sold your shoes for bolt buffers.
