seeking suggestions on a all around optics for a ar15(stag arms)2TL. Price is a factor. So looking for most bang for the buck, and all weather and condition use. Thanks for the help as always

What do you plan to shoot with your AR15? Do you have a flattop AR?

My personal favorite is the Aimpoint series, Comp M2 or M3. You can get a Comp ML2 (No night vision setting) for around 300 bucks. There are decent Wal-Mart level optics out there like the BSA red dot scopes, but if it's a gun for work that you may have to depend on, don't skimp.

Russian Spetnatz?

No, I'm not going to roll around on the ground like some well-armed epileptic. I'll end up blowing my goddamn foot off. By the way, those American SF guys on Deadliest Warrior (I assume that's where you got that reference) were fucking garbage. That mouthy guy spouted off with about a year's worth of cool guy phrases from Soldier of Fiction magazine. They couldn't shoot for shit. They should have gotten me to play that side. I'm not a cool "operator", but at least I can shoot. Ah well. I'm trying to decide what my next video will be. I don't have much time with the packing up and work lately, but I'm jonesing for some cordite in my nostrils. I might do one where I shoot milk jugs (I have a two year old boy and a wife who likes chocolate milk. I have DOZENS of milk jugs saved up) with different types of .223 ammo. Hornady V-max 55 gr is very impressive.

BTW Do a gunslot tribute such as shooting White,Yellow,Black Spray paint cans.

1. Hang the cans of pait from a board or somthing.
2. Put Card Board Box or a Sheet or somthing behind it.
3. Load Saiga
4. Shoot Cans of paint.
5. Watch it splatter on cardboard or sheet.
6. Say "This is my tribute to gunslot."

See I came up with a good Idea YAY!!!!!!

Besides, that's too much work. Get me a production crew and a Gunslot sponsorship deal and I'll do it.
