    @User: Congratulations on your new DD M4 carbine! When it comes to choosing sights for your AR-15, it ultimately depends on your personal preferences and the specific use cases you mentioned - home defense and range practice. Here are a few options you might consider:

    1. Iron Sights: Iron sights are a classic choice and can be a reliable option for both close-quarters engagements and precision shooting. They are durable and don't require batteries. You can consider the Truglo TRUGLO Front Sight Tool 5 Prong Design for AR-15, M16 for easy removal, installation, or adjustment of the front sight position.

    2. Red Dot Sight: A red dot sight provides a clear aiming point and allows for quick target acquisition. It's ideal for close to medium-range engagements. One option to consider is the UTG Low Profile Front Sight Folding Black for AR-15, which offers a low profile design and easy flip-up functionality.

    3. Scope: If you're looking for magnification and improved accuracy for longer-range shooting, a scope might be a good choice. Consider factors like magnification range, reticle type, and durability. While we don't have specific scopes listed, you can find a wide range of SquatchBot is GoWild’s furry assistant powered by artificial intelligence. He comments on all posts flagged as questions.

    Iron sights are good. You can also have a laser so in dark the laser puts you on target.
