Re: Do You Own An AR15 Rifle?

Just to stay on subject, I feel like today's AR 15 is almost like yesteryears 22LR. They are good entry level firearms to teach skills, respect and safety without much recoil. I learned shotguns by shooting 410 first and working up to 12 guage. (3 1/2 magnum are still eye opening) AR's in .223 can be very accurate and used to be relatively cheap to shoot for a centerfire. That being said, I do have a 6.8 SPC, 450 Bushmaster, 50 Beowulf and a Colt LE901 in .308. They won't replace my Garands, bolt guns or lever actions for their intended uses.

Neither am I. But it's like having health, house or car insurance. You have it just in case you need it.

Plus the ar is a fun gun to shoot and when you find the right one you'll be as fond of it as any gun you own.

Re: Do You Own An AR15 Rifle?

The AR15 refers to Colt's AR15 line of rifles. Colt purchased the Armalite Assault AR-15 and renamed it M-16. The current AR15 rifles have a rating of 30-40 rounds per min. where the M-16 is rated at 400-900 rounds per min.

I hope your magazine and all readers know that AR-15 type rifles on the market ARE NOT MILITARY ASSAULT WEAPONS. Unless they can fire at a rate of 400 to 900 rounds per min. they are not up to assault weapon ratings.

The shot placement of my Ruger SR556 at 250..600 yards makes it an excellent long range rifle.

Re: Do You Own An AR15 Rifle?

I wish I had more than one! I would like to have one in a different caliber? Maybe a 308, but the prices right now are STUPID expensive! Maybe after the Government settles down, (or gets taken down) the prices will come back down to reality? Until then, I will just keep hand loading 53, and 55 grain rounds for my Stag?

Agree. I would really like one in 204 Ruger (or even just an upper in 204 Ruger) and down the road one in the 243 Win. A semi-auto in 243 win would be a coyote getter. But I'm not paying the crazy prices that they're getting currently and feel confident that this will blow over. Granted the left is throwing every ounce they have into it but I don't think the majority of democrats want to be thrown out on election day and they remember 94 as well as Albert 'global fatso' Gore losing the oval office due to his stance on gun ownership.
