Seriously, there is a difference in the words. The official S&W website does not use the word "type" in conjunction with the M&P 15/22. In fact S&W does not use the designation "AR" with the M&P 15/22, or the word "style" either.

Even the reviewers of the .22 cal, AR "style" rifles do not call them AR "types".

I'm very sorry this came up (again....) and hope that we can honor the young man's OP by giving him a thoughtful answer to his question.

Besides......."The Nun is still alive." There has been enough bloodshed over this, already!

Training before bootcamp

I am a Marine so take this comment as such.

If your going to join the marines do not teach yourself to shoot. If you don't know let them do it. Our best shooters are the ones professionally taught because they do not have bad habits. The ******* that comes in talking about what a great shot he is usually ends up with a pizza box on the range.

As for training with how the weapon functions if your going for a 22 hands down get a CMMG. Most 22 cal AR's are not actually AR rifles at all. Their some kind of kids toy made of plastic. With a real AR you should be able to swap out the upper receiver to get a different caliber. CMMG is one of the only companies that makes a full rifle in which you can do that.

You will want to get a BHOA and mags that work with it as well. Get a MOLE vest and practice reload drills. With the BHOA do it in this order.

-Look down the sights
-Rack the charging handle so the BHOA locks back
-Release a mag
-Grab a mag and load it
-Release the forward assist

This will make you faster at reloading which is very nice. If you want similar sights get a T post front sight and a carrying handle (With 0-2 flip) rear sight.

Additionally you can do failure to fire drills which I will not cover. To do those with the CMMG you will have to make your forward assist functional which is another upgrade.

Point blank- You would be better off doing pushups (If your going army) or Pull ups (If your going marines) until your arms are rubber for your pre bootcamp prep. With either do a lot of learning and get that rank structure down.

Good luck

-Edit* God help you in finding ammo for a 22 btw..
