This past week, we purchased our first AR-15. What a fun firearm to target shoot, because firing 30 rounds in 30 seconds is absolutely amazing! We chose this gun for two reasons (1) -God forbid- home protection/self defense and (2) hunting. Yes, hunting! Guys, this is a rifle, plain and simple. ARs are lightweight, available in a few different size calibers, have little recoil, and my favorite point... in seconds, they can easily be adjusted to fit any size person, from a youngster right on up to a grown man. They're pretty versatile, and did we mention a lot of fun to shoot!
