New Guy from Va. disabled VW Era Vet interested in LR Shooting. Best and most important protection scheme there is at present. Forget all that "assault weapon" stuff which makes me very ill. Yes love AR & M-16, even though little low in punch-through, which is why I purchased the 30-06. Can't run or hide from this one(ho,ho), though not best idea in home defense at all. The ole trusty shotgun in 20 guage is just fine especially in match shot. Nothing much more to say right now, but lets keep our 2nd Amendment. That state of union address was very well couched in socialist prop.
