S&W M&P 15-22

I hope my son is excited Christmas morning because I bought him one today.What I need to know are there any little stocking stuffers that could go with it?Other than a couple bricks of ammo.

Re: S&W M&P 15-22

If you intend to use a bipod, you'll need a swivel stud adapter for the rail (unless you get a rail mount bipod).

If you plan to use a red dot, you'll probably want a riser rail. If you're going to mount a scope you'll need high rings. I used a set of see-throughs before my riser rail arrived. The Weaver see-throughs were just about the right height.

A soft case made for tactical rifles is a good idea, as the rifle won't fit into a standard gun case.

Also, a reactive target of some sort is a good idea, as paper quickly gets boring with this rifle.

Re: S&W M&P 15-22

Any idea on where to get spinner targets?Do you think balloons with baby powder in them would put on a nice display?

Re: S&W M&P 15-22

Balloons are cool, but take a while to make targets that don't take long to pop, lol.

I use a regular case for my Colt M4, but I have to collapse the stock all the way in to get it to fit.

I don't know about the M&P, but the Colt is really not as picky with ammo as the reviews say it is. I've heard the same about the M&P. It doesn't take long to go through a brick!

Re: S&W M&P 15-22

I want to clean the gun and let him run a few brands through it before buying 5000 rounds.Anyone know where I can get spinner targets quickly.I have 200 orange peels already.Oh I did find custom pins for the gun and a couple other goodies.
