The sad part about is that the working man or woman can't afford to buy what they need because of some kooks in DC.

Definately wish that I would have bought a couple in the past but I don't really know much about them. After reading several reviews I plan to buy a few Smith and Wesson M&P AR-15 Sport models. The sport model has a different barrel and doesn't have the dust cover. A local shop sells them for $675, so once everything calms down and they are available I plan to get them. Based on price and reviews they seem to be a good platform to start with and I can make the upgrades that I want once I'm more familar with the AR.

About then, the used market on these should be pretty good.

Are you familar with this model?

I've only read a couple reviews in magazines and watched a couple on youtube. I think the only difference in the barrel is how it is coated but not 100%.

Is it a good platform to start with? I don't plan to be doing alot of shooting. Just wanted to purchase a few before we can't, just to have them.

I would like to get one and set it up for coyote hunting. I may purchase a different brand or model for hunting.

Not an expert on these. This one does sound interesting though.

That's about an average price of what that particular rifle is bringing. Check on the cost of the ammunition as well. Good luck.

It's a good friend of mine, he started the business several years ago (before the craziness started). No promises of what he can provide today, I do know materials and parts are in short supply (just like everyone else) -may suit your needs - give em' a look.
